Vedic Sky - April 2024

By Dr. J. N. Pandey (View Profile)

Astrology can be a very good guide to a better life provided you are open to its projections rather than just its predictions. Over the years, astrology has evolved in various ways. In order to learn how to navigate, the first step is to understand your horoscope. While the natal positions decree certain situations and possibilities, the transits always bring in new and ever-changing predictions as the planets keep to their movement in the Vedic sky.

CyberAstro Planet Sun will transit into sign Pisces and then into Aries.

Planet Sun will start its journey through the watery and dual sign Pisces, but it will transit into the fiery and movable as well as its exalted sign Aries on 13th April 2024 for the rest of this month. Therefore, during first half of this month, there could be sharp reaction between neighbouring countries on action and counter action by each other. On domestic front, despite of political stability, there could be continuation of politics of poaching and switching loyalty by political activist of different parties. The same could trigger allegation/counter allegation between ruling and opposition parties. However, during the second half of the month, some powerful nations may give final shape to their defence and trade deals, which could have larger impact on future geo-politics. On domestic front, there could be power tussle in power corridor and allegation level of political parties may go further below in election campaigns/rallies.

CyberAstro Planet Mercury will transit into sign Aries and then into Pisces.


Planet Mercury will start its journey from the sign Aries, but it will take retrograde motion on 2nd April 2024 and again it will transit back into its debilitated sign Pisces on 9th April 2024 for the rest of this month, where Mercury will take direct motion on 25th April 2024. Hence, there could be a situation of uncertainty and instability in the market with lots of ups and downs during this month, which could not attract the much confidence of investors community. Similarly, the dialogue process between nations on bilateral issues or on international forums, may also face lots of hurdles and take a back seat till third week of April 2024. However, the last week of this month could prove beneficial for the market as well as for such dialogue process, which may conclude with fruitful and desired outcomes. 

CyberAstro Planet Moon will transit into Sagittarius till into Capricorn.


Moon, the beautiful energy that helps us to connect to the finer things of life starts its quick-footed journey from sign Sagittarius and will be in the sign Capricorn at the end of this month.

CyberAstro Planet Mars will transit into sign Aquarius and then into Pisces.


Planet Mars is the energy that helps us to push forward as well as to attain our hopes and dreams; will start its journey from the sign Aquarius and it will transit in sign Pisces on 23rd April 2024 for the rest of this month. Hence, the border or internal defence strategy formulated by state armed forces could bring stability and better results during this month. The counter terror activities as well as to downsize anti-social and anti-national elements by state armed forces may see good outcome. However, the last week of April 2024 could bring hurdles on ongoing negotiations related to border issues or military confrontations between some neighbouring countries.

CyberAstro Planet Venus will transit into sign Pisces and then into Aries.


Venus, the planet that signifies our sense of appreciation for good and beauty in all forms of harmony as well as wealth would start its journey from its exalted sign Pisces, but it will transit in the sign Aries on 25th April 2024 for rest of the month. Hence, there could be stability with the prices of petroleum and other energy related products. This month could prove very beneficial for the entertainment industry as well as for the women work force, who could perform better with name and fame at work place and shine in their respective work fields.

CyberAstro Planet Jupiter will transit into sign Aries.


Planet Jupiter which signifies wealth, peace, and prosperity in the society, has started its transit in sign Aries on 22nd April 2023 for next one year and would be in same sign during April 2024. Hence, the efforts made by different governments to boost their financial activities and economy may bring good results. Financial institutions may see better response to their efforts for revival measures of economy irrespective of countries. However, on individual level, it would influence your life as per transiting relation of planet Jupiter with respect to your birth chart.

CyberAstro Planet Saturn will transit into sign Aquarius.


Planet Saturn is already transiting in its own sign Aquarius till March 2025. So it will continue its transit in same sign during April 2024. Hence, we may see the positive results for elderly citizens as well as for the health sector during this month. The month may bring some joy for the labour class to get benefited with welfare schemes by concerned governments. However, for the people who come under Sade Sati or Dhaiya with this transit of Saturn, may face issues as per relation of planet Saturn with their individual birth charts.

CyberAstro Planet Rahu and Ketu will transit into sign Pisces and Virgo.


The eternally retrograde energies Rahu has transited into sign Pisces and Ketu has transited into sign Virgo on 30th October 2023 only for the next one and half years. Therefore, this transit of Rahu in sign Pisces indicates that some countries may promote crime and criminals through their spy activities to enemy countries. They may target prisons and hospitals for spy activities. The transit of Ketu in sign Virgo indicates major shift in labour and public health policies of some of countries considering today's world challenges. There could be boost of medical services in the world and every country would try to be self-dependent specifically in health sector.
