Akhilesh Yadav is born in Gemini Ascendant (Mithuna Lagna); and, Mahadasa (main period) of Mercury is currently operational on his horoscope. Vedic astrology readings for Akhilesh Yadav aren’t looking much supportive; and, despite his being under Mahadasa of well disposed Mercury in second house of his Lagna Chart, the year 2014 may not be much promising for him. The antardasa (sub-period) of the Mars (operational till August 2014) to be followed by antardasa of Rahu are the primary concerns. Akhilesh Yadav may continue to experience problems in his political career. He may remain vulnerable towards hasty or partial decisions; and, may also experience lack of support from public as well as within his political relationships. Lack of harmony between him and his father Mulayam Singh may also pose issues on few occasions. There may also be some issues related with family and health, specifically during first half of 2014. The second half of 2014 (preferably from mid July 2014 onwards) may provide some relief; although, he may take (or may feel compelled to take) some strong decisions against the desire of his father and other senior members of the political party.
