Date of Birth: May 13, 1956, Birth Day: Sunday, Birth Time: 00:00:00, Birth Place: Papanasam, Tamil nadu, India
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is born with Capricorn Ascendant. Capricorn is a moveable last of earth sign and ruled by Saturn.
Permanence and reliance are the two corner stone of the rock-solid Capricorn. Known as Goats, Capricorn natives are one of the most structure –oriented, and constancy craving beings. Although liable to be perceived as cold, calculated and rigid, Capricorn natives are inwardly sensitive, altruistic, mature beings, who are more likely to be much harder on themselves that they would ever be on others. Practical and methodical, most Capricorn natives are in fact, famous in their circles for their helpful nature, vibrant personalities, positive headstrong approach and resilience. The wondrous clarity of thought makes them great problem solvers. They also have a burning need and desire for power and prestige.
Ruler of the Ascendant Saturn is retrograde in a water sign Scorpio along with shadow planet Rahu. Both are positioned in the eleventh house. Ruler of the eleventh house Mars is in its sign of exaltation Capricorn and positioned in the first house. In this way Saturn and Mars exchange signs with each other. The eighth house is ruled by mighty Sun. Sun is in its sign of exaltation Aries and stationed in the fourth house. Exalted Mars positioned in the first house has an eye on exalted Sun stationed in the fourth house. This position induces him to move ahead on path of spirituality. Moon rules the seventh house. Moon is its sign of exaltation earth sign Taurus along with Mercury and malefic Ketu. All are stationed in the fifth house. Exalted Moon in company of Mercury leads Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to become much wealthy. Venus is in a dual nature air sign Gemini and positioned in the sixth house. In this way Mercury and Venus exchange sign with each other. Jupiter holds portfolio of the third and the 12th house. Jupiter is in its sign of exaltation Cancer and stationed in the seventh house. Exalted Mars and exalted Jupiter are in opposition to each other.
In Chalit Chart Saturn shifts in to the tenth house.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji is currently under the influence of Venus sub period in major period of Mercury till end of August. Then for rest part of the year he is to be under the influence of Sun sub period in major period of Mercury.
Effect of Transit by major planets during the year 2019
Ruler of the Ascendant and also that of the second house Saturn transits in a dual nature last of fire sign Sagittarius for whole of the year 2019. Saturn moves through the 12th house for whole of the year 2019. This is in opposition to radical position of Venus stationed in the sixth house. This position can lead to some controversy for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji. He needs to use words carefully while making any kind of statement. During this movement of Saturn he can be entrusted with responsibility to handle public opinion and decide about proprietary of a sacred place. Progressive forces are to work effectively. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is to have new challenges now. Now is the time to prove his worth as a spiritual leader.
From 7th March shadow planet Rahu enters a dual nature air sign Gemini. Rahu now moves through the sixth house. Rahu moving through the sixth house is to cross over radical position of Venus stationed therein. This period seems much eventful and challenging as well for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He needs to execute due discrimination at all levels. Progressive forces are to keep working effectively here.
Malefic Ketu enters a dual nature last of fire sign Sagittarius from 7th March. Ketu moves through the 12th house along with Saturn. This movement of two malefic through the 12th house is to present new challenges for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He is to spend money to further his influence as a spiritual leader. However, he needs to execute due discrimination while spending money. He needs to have effective check on unwarranted expenses. This movement of two malefic does not sound a happy proposition for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
Jupiter has entered its own sign Sagittarius from 30th March. Soon from 11th April Jupiter becomes retrograde in motion. From 23rd April Jupiter moving in retrograde mode again enters water sign Scorpio. Jupiter now moves through the eleventh house. From 12th August Jupiter becomes direct in motion. This period of retrogression of Jupiter is to be much eventful. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has to accept new challenges and work hard over the same. Now is time to prove his worth as an evolved soul and as able spiritual leader. At the same time he needs to be much careful about his health for good.
From 12th August Jupiter becomes direct in motion. Now Jupiter moves through the eleventh house. This gives him opportunity to recover lost ground. Acceptance level for his activity as a spiritual leader is to increase. More people are to back his effort to spread his views about Yoga and spirituality. He is able to prove his worth as a spiritual leader of masses in general.
From 5th November Jupiter again enters its own sign Sagittarius known for optimism. Jupiter now moves through the 12th house in company of malefic Ketu and hard task master Saturn. This movement of two major planets through the 12th house seems supportive for progressive forces to work effectively. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji is to have more freedom to work for achieving his objective to make people aware about importance of spiritual related activity.
