In the Tokyo Olympics, India showcased its best-ever performance and made a tally of SEVEN medals! Beating the previous count of six medals at the 2012 London games, this was the highest-ever number of medals that the country had won, and it's safe to say that this is nothing short of an extraordinary feat by the country's sportspersons.
The Tokyo Olympics became a huge deal for India, not only because India bagged seven shining Olympic medals but also because one of them was a shimmering gold medal. The credit for bringing a GOLD medal back home goes to the star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra.
Neeraj Chopra stepped out with an unmatched swagger at the Tokyo Olympics and performed in a way that demolished his competitors and ensured that he clinched a gold medal for India.
The name Neeraj Chopra, who made India proud by winning a gold medal in athletics in the quadrennial sporting extravaganza, is still on everyone's tongue. And why shouldn't it be! It was indeed an extraordinary feat. The 23-year-old star javelin thrower made a historic win and clinched the country's maiden Olympic medal in athletics on 7th August 2021. His outstanding performance put an end to the country's 121-year wait for an athletics medal. His best throw of 87.58m guaranteed his win and a place in the history books.
Neeraj Chopra became the second individual Olympic gold medalist after shooter Abhinav Bindra, who bagged gold in Beijing in 2008, and the first-ever Indian athlete to win gold. It was Neeraj Chopra’s gold medal that ensured that India breaks its previous record and wins its first-ever seven medals in the Olympics.
Neeraj Chopra was born in Khandra village of Panipat, Haryana, on 24th December 1997. As per the latest World Athletics men's javelin rankings, Neeraj Chopra has secured the second position after his historic win. Naib Subedar Neeraj Chopra is a junior commissioned officer in the Indian Army. He has also won gold medals for India in the 2018 Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.
Now, let's find out through the lens of astrology, which planets propelled 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra to become Neeraj Chopra, the gold medalist at the Tokyo Olympics?
As per Vedic astrology, Neeraj Chopra was born in Pisces Ascendant in the Libra sign. At present, the Mahadasha of Jupiter is going on. Jupiter is the lord of Lagna and Karam. Mars, the Karak of games and sports, is exalted in the 11th house with the Lord of Parakram. Jupiter and Mars are making a Raja Yoga of the Kendra Trikon in the 11th house, indicating an outstanding achievement.
After analysing Neeraj Chopra’s horoscope, what can be said is given below-
From the year 1999 to 2017, Rahu Mahadasha was going on. Rahu Mahadasha allows the native to travel around the country and abroad, but the native doesn’t attain any achievement.
During that time, Rahu was sitting in the Sun's sign. Neeraj Chopra must have struggled and worked hard during the time of Rahu, but he could not have gotten any great success.
Although during this time, he had achieved minor successes. However, as soon as Jupiter arrived in 2017, it solved all the difficulties in his path.
According to Vedic astrology, the Drishti or aspect of Jupiter was falling on the Karam sthan or profession house during the transit on Saturday, 7th August 2021.
Jupiter’s aspect on the Karam sthan or the house of profession indicates getting some incredible achievements in the work field. Due to this, it was on this day that Neeraj Chopra made India proud by winning a gold medal.
At present, in Neeraj Chopra's horoscope, Jupiter sitting in the house of happiness and looking over at the Karam sthan or the house of profession was indicating excellent achievements in his fate.
Apart from this, Venus, the Lord of Parakram and Mars, the Karak of sports, were sitting together in the 11th house, which was creating a good Yoga.
At the same time, Mars sitting in the 11th house is considered a good Yoga for attaining wealth and respect.
Overall, one can definitely say that the stars did favour Neeraj Chopra, the gold medalist, and made sure that he gave a historic performance. The stars of Neeraj Chopra's fortune were indeed on his side, as he won the prestigious gold medal on the international stage. According to Astroyogi astrologers, the Mahadasha of Jupiter is going to be quite long, so for the next 5-10 years, Neeraj Chopra will continue to be blessed with fame, glory, respect, wealth, happiness and prosperity.
We hope India gets to see more glorious victories in the future!
