April 2021 Vedic Astrology Forecast
Monday, April 5:
Jupiter, the expansive planet of general good fortune known as ‘The Great Benefic’ has been in a compromised state in sidereal Capricorn, its weakened sign of debilitation since late March of 2020. Today, Jupiter enters Aquarius. Promisingly and thankfully, for Jupiter this is a more neutral sign and a more stable placement.
In retrograde, back-tracking motion, Jupiter will return to Capricorn temporarily on Tuesday, September 14th for two months, and then will re-enter Aquarius on Saturday, November 20th, to remain here until Wednesday, April 13, 2022.
Sunday, April 11:
The April New Moon takes place today in sidereal Pisces at 10:30PM EDT in the lunar mansion of Revati Nakshatra.
The chart of the New Moon gives an indication of likely themes that will affect the atmosphere over the next 30 days.
This month’s New Moon chart becomes additionally significant in the sense that the New Moon in Pisces chart also reflects the yearly trends within a country. For this specific purpose, this chart is cast for each nation’s capital city. While astrologically the fate of a country can be seen in a number of ways, and though various charts, this chart provides a revealing layer of information. The origins of the use of this chart for this particular purpose are not entirely known.
For the U.S., this chart is calculated for Washington DC. In this chart, the sign of Scorpio rises, and Jupiter, an especially beneficial planet is well placed in the 4th house of country. This influence reflects a promising foundation of stability. Saturn, another powerfully commanding planet is also well-placed in its own sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house. This is one of the four upachaya houses, or houses of ‘increase’. This placement brings improvement and rise through effort and overcoming adversity. This indicates a basic desirable underpinning of improvement.
However alongside of this, when this chart is seen from the 10th house, which indicates the nation’s leader, there are unfortunately especially concerning influences for the president himself. The Sun as the ruling planet of the 10th house is with Mercury, this chart’s difficult 8th lord. Also, from the 10th house, the Moon is eight houses away, a placement of disruption and potential health problems. For the U.S., this is likely to be a year where desirable collective practical stability coincides with concern about the president himself, and this may bring a distinct shifting of roles and responsibilities for those in the highest offices of leadership.
As a New Moon chart that reflects more universal themes for the next 30 days, this chart is more simply read from the Sun and Moon sign of Pisces. Mercury is also in Pisces, and all three of these planets are in the mild-natured lunar mansion of Revati Nakshatra. This is the last of the 27 stars, where it indicates a quality of completion.
In this chart, the Moon is in the very last degrees of the sign. This is a sensitive junction at the very end of a water sign and the beginning of a fire sign known as gandanta, which means ‘a knot’.
This steam-producing relationship between water and fire elements is an intersection which has vaporizing effects. It indicates a cross-road which may look messy as re-orientation occurs. There may be an experience over the days ahead that is like that of untying and straightening out of a situational knot as part of a preparation for a next step in one’s journey.
This chart indicates numerous layers of completion upon completion.
Jupiter is the ruler of this Pisces-rising chart, and is in the 12th house of endings. And from the 12th house, its ruler Saturn is also 12 houses away.
Alongside of these traits of falling away, in this chart there are also influences that are strikingly hard-working, energizing and also potentially volatile. Mars and Rahu are powerful in the 3rd house, a house of effort and courage, and here Rahu absorbs and amplifies the effects of Mars- for better or for worse. This planetary combination is also one that can bring new developments and skills in one’s use of technology, and also striking innovations in the tech world.
In short, the days ahead are likely to be a time of several various endings, giving an experience like that of a karmic knot being untied. This time of much falling away is not likely to be a passive experience, however, but one of active jettisoning, strong intentions and emerging new goals.
Wednesday, April 14:

Monday, April 26:
The Full Moon in sidereal Libra in Swati Nakshatra takes place at 11:31PM EDT. Symbolized as a young sprout blowing in the wind, Swati Nakshatra is a lunar mansion whose momentum is scattering. It has connotations of delicateness and fragility, and of seeking to hold steadfast against the elements. Today the Moon is in an especially vulnerable placement, as it lacks any planetary support from either side, while from 10 houses away it receives Saturn’s harsh planetary aspect. This Full Moon may be un-grounding in its energizing effects.
Wednesday, April 28:
The Moon in early sidereal Scorpio today is in its low-point of debilitation, which may make for low-energy, uneven emotions, or a need for more rest. It will be in its weakest degree at 5:35AM EDT.
Today the Moon is in an additionally vulnerable placement, where it is with the south lunar node (Ketu), and is an isolated Moon, or one without any planet in either neighbouring sign to lend it bolstering planetary support.
