April 2024 Horrible Energies and Ways to Deal with Them

The energies of April 2024 are Horrible, so this means that we need to know what these are and we need to work out how we are going to deal with them. They are extensive and deep and it’s crucial for us to understand and deal successfully with them. See the 3-part video:

See the Pt. 1 video:

See the Pt. 2 video:

See the Pt. 3 video:

These energies are actually very complex.

In some ways they pull us in different directions.

And we also so need to be aware there are openings for intuition – well as other energies which are so tense and fraught.

So this needs to be a thorough and detailed list of the energies and how to deal with them, so please allow for the fact it could be a bit mind-bending. Here we go!

So this video and blog are a detailed summary of the planet positions which is actually necessary for day-by day understanding.

See the charts and Ephemeris in both Vedic and Western Astrology on my Starwheel Astrology April 2024 monthly page: https://starwheelastrology.com/april-2024/

Note that the Planet positions are listed in this blog post and video using the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology.

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse 8.4.24

Sun, Moon and Chiron are all at 25 Vedic Pisces in Revati Nakshatra on 8th April 2024, the day of the huge Solar Eclipse.

A Solar Eclipse happens during a New Moon (when Sun and Moon are Conjunct) when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking our view of at least part of the Sun.

A total solar eclipse (like the one happening on April 8th) is when the Moon completely blocks the Sun.

FYI: By way of contrast, a Lunar Eclipse happens during a Full moon (when Sun and Moon are opposition each other), when the Earth’s shadow blocks out our view of the Moon.

The last Lunar Eclipse was the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 25.03.2024. see:

Eclipses bring matters to light and urge us to take action towards dealing with them.

This is because they are conjunct the axis of the Nodes of the Moon where Ketu the South Node is the carrier of our karmas from our past live and ancestral issues, and Rahu the North Node is the direction of our fate, destiny and Life Purpose in this life.

Your dreams can be very valuable to tap into at Eclipse time. Make a not of you dream immediately you wake up (otherwise you will forget it), then, later, go into your dream by doing dream work (often in sharing with another person) and huge realizations will likely show themselves, that you simply never realised they were there!

See ‘Working with Dreams’ on my Druid Forest School website where you can book a session:

Note that this April 8th Solar Eclipse is conjunct the Nodal axis with Rahu North Node at 21 Pisces, Ketu South Node at 21 Virgo in Hasta Nakshatra.

A crucial to know part of this  Eclipse energy is the tense, angry and dangerous Mars-Saturn conjunction at 20 Aquarius.

In this New Moon Solar Eclipse, the Sun is extensively obscured especially in the USA.

This is ‘The Great American Eclipse’ and affects USA powerfully.

The actual path of Totality for this Eclipse is:

Dallas, Texas

Idabel, Oklahoma

Little Rock, Arkansas

Poplar Bluff, Missouri

Paducah, Kentucky

Carbondale, Illinois

Evansville, Indiana

Cleveland, Ohio

Erie, Pennsylvania

Buffalo, New York

Burlington, Vermont

Lancaster, New Hampshire

Caribou, Maine

The Mars Saturn conjunction is characterized by terrible Anger. It adds this energy to the Eclipse!!!

I explain all about this in the sections on Mars and Saturn below.

Importantly, this fraught energy will challenge us to find out what’s real about our beliefs and our assumptions.

What’s authentic?

Anger and frustration will erupt.

It is also important to be aware that Pluto at the time of this Eclipse is conjunct Pluto in the chart for the birth of the USA: 4.7.1776 at 6 deg 49 Capricorn – so this is a huge issue about power for the USA to handle: either destructively or developmentally: and because it’s the USA, for the whole world.

Incidentally, the Vedic Lunar New Year of 2023 starts with this Eclipse and the Mars-Saturn conjunction on April 8th – so this predicts a horribly tense and angry year ahead indeed.

So be aware that this is a major eclipse with ongoing great tension. Great emotional intensity. There is the great challenge to each of us for INSIGHTS and AWAKENINGS!

Cross the bridge to your Unconscious and Shadow Side for the fullness of benefitting from Eclipse energies.

But remember, Eclipses need not be calamity. Eclipses absolutely also can be ‘death and rebirth’ energy for us.

This eclipse will affect individuals big time who have planets in the Virgo-Pisces axis, in the Aquarius – Leo, in the Capricorn – Cancer axis, plus other signs that receive an aspect from Eclipse.

Sun and Moon in Pisces or the Saturn-Mars conjunction in Aquarius.

Remember also that the transiting Moon goes conjunct the Mars-Saturn Conjunction on 7th April, just before it heads into the Eclipse on 8th April, and everyone will feel this.

AND WHAT ARE WE TO MAKE OF THE CRUCIAL FACT THAT CHIRON IS CONJUNCT THIS NEW MOON ECLIPSE???

Chiron’s presence here gives us a HUGE opportunity to contact our wounds and seek to bring healing to them.

Chiron is our existential would, in the healing of which we become the healer of others.

Watch out for my upcoming Video and blog on this New Moon Eclipse of April 8th.

Full Moon 24.4.25

Moon at 10 Libra in Swati Nakshatra.

Sun at 10 Aries in Ashwini Nakshatra.

This is Big if you have planets in the Libra-Aries axis, or in signs aspects by Libra.

Watch out for my upcoming video and blog about this Full Moon.

Sun transits from 19 Pisces to 16 Aries

The mystical nature of the Sun is enhanced by Neptune in Pisces.

When Sun is in Pisces it requires dedication and service to still fully connect with the actual Divine Nature of the Sun (rather than get affected by Pisces’ loss and drain facets).

Sun transits Revati Nakshatra, the 27th Nakshatra (at the end of Pisces) from March 31st to April 14th.

Revati can be too critical unless they purge this, but they are innately orientated to spiritual awareness and growth. Revati’s motivation is towards spiritual liberation.

Note that Sun is conjunct Rahu North Node on 5th April at 21 Pisces.

This is a very me-first driven energy and destabilizing for the mind. Donald Trump has it in Taurus, Boris Hohnson has it in Gemini.

The person can be driven by insatiable ego.

Sun is Gandanta during the Pisces-Aries sign transition: 10th to 17th April.

The Gandanta zones are the three Water sign to Fire sign transitions in Vedic Astrology.

They are regions of great immateriality, though with potential openings for great spiritual and visionary insights.

We will all feel this Gandanta Sun energy. Use it wisely and constructively. Do vision work and intuitive work to identify the nature of and solve/heal your life issues.

Sun enters Aries on April 14th.

Do be aware of the MASSIVE DIFFERENCE between Pisces energies, and now the Aries energies where the Sun finds himself.

We have been feeling this new Sun energy since the Spring Equinox on March 20th.

Embrace the Aries warrior dimension.

But don’t jettison your Pisces spiritual visionary self.

Sun ends April at 16 Aries.

Mercury starts April at 3 Aries

At the start of April Mercury is at 3 Aries and so still just in the Gandanta, receiving a square from Pluto at 7 Capricorn. Pluto square Mercury!

Mercury turns Retrograde on 2nd April, remaining Retrograde until 25th April.

During this Retrograde, Mercury re-enters Pisces on 10th April – thus being in the Gandanta until April 13th.

Be aware that Retrograde Mercury can be horrible for posts and communications issues etc.

But also be aware that Mercury in the Pisces-Aries Gandanta can be wonderful for sudden insights and clarities, and for doing vision work, and vision work can certainly be a help at the time of the awful energies of April 2024.

Be aware also that Mercury Retrograde can be good for returning our focus to unfinished business and unfinished issues in our lives.

And be aware that when Mercury is transiting the end of the sign Pisces, Mercury is in the Nakshatra it rules: Revati. So this may cause difficulties for Revati’s nature and expression – but equally Mercury may come up with some clever solutions for each of us now.

Plans you had been trying to implement but seemed to be a real struggle and getting nowhere – these can suddenly flower and manifest now – thank goodness!!!

Mercury is conjunct asteroid Eris on 9th April. This is an energy for strife in Mercury matters like communication. Take special care!

It’s very confrontative.

Mercury turns Direct on 25th April at 21 Pisces.

Mercury ends April at 22 Pisces – still a third Gandanta crossing yet to go next month in May!

Venus starts April at 1 Pisces, conjunct Neptune. Venus is exalted in Pisces

Venus has exalted energy in Pisces. It is the planet of highest dignity in the Vedic chart now. It can be very good for love

 – though watch out for Venus becoming swamped by the terrible energies around as April progresses.

Venus in Pisces enhances Venus’ ability to shine on us his Divine nature as ‘The Preceptor of Demons’.

Venus and Jupiter are the great guru energy planets of Vedic astrology.

In Venus’s case, Venus shows us that dealing lovingly with demons (= horrible energies) is a very spiritual way of getting them to leave their evil behind. This is a very important point.

Venus is conjunct Neptune which is at 3 deg Pisces at the start of April – and this Venus-Neptune conjunction becomes exact on 3rd April.

The positive side of this conjunction is that it can promote the highest perceptions of love and beauty (though it can also bring illusions in love).

Asteroid Eris is conjunct Venus at 10 Pisces at the time of the New Moon of 8th April.

This Venus-Eris conjunction at the time of an eclipse especially can be a time of profound transformation of your expression of your love including re-evaluation of your personality issues and self-expression values.

It’s intense but with potential for you to come more into your proper power and love.

Venus is conjunct Rahu at 20 Pisces on April 18th. This can be a driven energy for love that can lead us down wrong alleyways, but nevertheless it increases the love-urge.

Venus-Rahu creates an increase in sexual urges.

Venus is conjunct Mercury Retrograde on April 19th at 23 Pisces.

Venus transits the Pisces-Aries Gandanta zone from April 22nd to 27th April. This can be a time for very sensitive openings about love.

Venus enters Aries on 25th April.

Venus ends April at 7 Aries – when Venus is square Pluto at 7 Capricorn!

Mars starts April at 13 Aquarius

Mars becomes conjunct Saturn on 10th April at 20 Aquarius.

It’s in an orb of 1 deg 24 mins with Saturn on the date of the Eclipse: 8.4.24.

The Mars Saturn conjunction is characterized by terrible Anger, terrible frustration. It adds this energy to the Eclipse!!!

Though I would say, most importantly, that encountering one’s personal Mars-Saturn conjunction can impel the person to do the work to heal it.

So if you find ANGER taking a grip on you at this time, do healing work to end that as part of your personality.

If you feel that BLOCKAGE is taking a grip on you at this time, do healing work to end that as part of your personality.

If you look at the Rashi Avasthas for this Eclipse: Rahi Avasthas method shows the way the planets treat each other, you see that Saturn has a raw strength of 401 strength points, but you will also see that the impact of Mars fighting Saturn reducing Saturn to -7 strength points, causing the greatest frustration and anger and destroying Saturn’s needed karmic impact on our minds and on or lives.

And what does Saturn do to Mars in return?

The grim reaper hand of Saturn’s karmic energy trashes the anger and vigour of Mars totally. Saturn reduces Mars from 408 raw strength points to only 7 strength points.

We each need our Mars action person. Saturn destroys him/her, so again there’s the greatest anger and frustration.

Rashi Avasthas is such a wonderful method from within Vedic Astrology, and I include it in all my readings:

and in all my courses:

Note that Mars enters Pisces, and is conjunct Neptune on 23rd April.

Mars ends April still conjunct Neptune at 5 Pisces.

Jupiter transits from 21 Aries to 29 Aries in April

Jupiter leaves Bharani Nakshatra and enters Krittika Nakshatra on 17th April.

Jupiter is conjunct Uranus at 27 Aries in Krittika Nakshatra on April 19th. This is a wonderful ‘thank the Lord’ expansionary and successful energy, so make the effort to connect to that potential in your life around this time and ongoingly!

Jupiter-Uranus is an energy of explosive advances and revolutionary breakthroughs in your life.

Saturn transits from 19 to 22 Aquarius in April

Saturn is conjunct Mars exact on 10th April, in PurvaBhadra Nakshatra.

The energy of this Mars Saturn conjunction is a tense and dangerous part of the Total Solar Eclipse of 8.4.24.

See my analysis of the nature and effects of the Saturn-Mars conjunction in the section on Mars, above and in the section on the April 8th Eclipse New Moon above.

Uranus transits from 26 to 28 Aries in April

Jupiter is conjunct Uranus at 27 Aries in Krittika Nakshatra on April 19th.

As I said in the Jupiter section, above, this is a wonderful ‘thank the Lord’ expansionary and successful energy, so make the effort to connect to that potential in your life around this time and ongoingly!

Neptune transits from 3 to 4 Pisces in April

On the positive side, Neptune in Pisces is such a wonderful supportive energy for vision openings, for vision work, shamanic-type healings, the lot.

I so love this energy and I combine Tarot with every astrology Reading.

Pluto is at 7 Capricorn in April

Note that Moon is conjunct Pluto on April 3rd – on its way into the April 8th Eclipse New Moon!

As I said in the section on the April 8th New Moon Eclipse, above, it is also important to be aware that Pluto at the time of this Eclipse is square Pluto in the chart for the birth of the USA: 4.7.1776 at 6 deg 49 Capricorn – so this is a huge issue about power for the USA to handle: either destructively or developmentally: and because it’s the USA, for the whole world.

Chiron transits from 25 Pisces in April

Chiron is conjunct Sun, Moon and Chiron at the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 25 Pisces on 8th April.

Chron ends April at 26 Pisces.

Chiron’s presence here gives us a HUGE opportunity to contact our wounds and seek to bring healing to them.

Chiron is our existential would, in the healing of which we become the healer of others.

Lilith Black Moon starts April at 25 Vedic Leo.

Lilith ends April at 29 Vedic Leo.

Lilith transits opposition Mars conjunct Neptune around 20th April and including the 24th April Full Moon.

Lilith is what is stuffed into our Unconscious and Shadow side – stuff that is driving us that we may not be consciously aware of what it is.

My God! To have Lilith opposition Mars/Neptune conjunction is immense energy for dream work, empowerment work and healing.

Don’t neglect this around the Full Moon of 24th April.

Get in touch with me for a Reading giving emphasis to your Lilith. I found the concept of Lilith so powerful for myself. Go to my Starwheel Astrology website:

Rahu North Node retrogrades from 21 to 20 Pisces in April

Ketu South Node retrogrades from 21 to 20 Virgo in April

The big thing to be totally aware of with the Nodes transiting Virgo is that this absolutely is the time to sort out your Healing needs.

Bring in your new needed approaches to healing.

This is MASSIVE.

Vesta Asteroid is square the Nodal Axis at 16 Gemini by the time of the 24th April Full Moon, ending the month at 19 deg still square the Nodal Axis.

Vests is the energy of our Sacred Flame. I love Vesta’s concept that each of us must tend our Sacred Flame, as did the temple Priestesses of old (and Irish families until recently).

And we so need to tend and keep alive our Sacred flame amid the fraught energies of the Nodal Axis at this time and the Eclipse at this time, and the Mars-Saturn conjunction at this time.
