Monthly Horoscope – April 2016

By Kshitij Sharma, March 21, 2016

The monthly horoscope for April 2016 is presented for you based on the moon sign, i.e. janma rashi in your horoscope, based on the Vedic niryana system. Please do not substitute your Sun sign or a western astrology moon sign here. If you do not know your janma rashi, please refer to the kundali application on this page. 8th house presence for Chandra is called Chandrashtama and is a period of grave caution. These dates are indicated. The dates for caution on financial matter are also indicated. People with a particular janma rashi should avoid dealing in financial matters on these dates, e.g. investment of property, stock market, giving and taking loans should be avoided.

The planetary positions for the month of April 2016 are as follows.


  • Sun is in Pisces till 14th of April. It then moves to Aries, which is exaltation sign for Sun.
  • Sun will be under 9th aspect of Jupiter and 9th aspect of Rahu, while in Aries.
  • Venus is conjunct with Sun while it is in Pisces.
  • Sun will be conjunct with Mercury in Aries.


  • Mars moves to Swakshetra of Scorpio in late February and will be in that sign throughout this month too.
  • Mars and Saturn will be in Scorpio together for a long time in 2016.
  • Mars is losing speed and will turn retrograde on 20th of April.


  • Mercury moves to debilitation sign of Pisces on 19th March and comes out of debilitation on April 2nd.
  • While in Pisces, Mercury is conjunct Sun. It will be conjunct Sun again when Sun moves to Aries.
  • Jupiter and Rahu will be aspecting Mercury while in Aries.


  • Jupiter is in Leo through the month and is retrograde
  • Jupiter and Rahu are now moving apart and no longer closely conjunct.
  • Saturn has pretty close aspect on Jupiter and Rahu both.


  • Venus is exalted in Pisces effectively through the month.
  • Venus then moves to Aries towards the end of the month.


  • Saturn is losing speed and will turn retrograde on March 25th.

Interesting retrogression observation: All three planets – Jupiter, Mars, Saturn will be retrograde and hence have cheshtabal during the month. Both Saturn and Mars together in the same mysterious sign of Scorpio, with retrogression means that some underhand deals are going on in the world of mundane astrology, which we will come to know soon. This also can mean increase in aggression. This combination is affecting the judicious planet of Jupiter and hence the good judgement of people will go down. Difficult times ahead.

Saturn is also going through 1st house and determination is the key.  You need to depend on your friends and family to help you enjoy life. They will get you gifts, good food and ensure that general happiness is maintained. Try not to take all responsibilities alone. Share the responsibilities to share the burden.
