The monthly horoscope for April 2020 is not being presented this month. The country and the world grappling with fears of COVID-19 and things around us are shut down. A lot of us are working from home and maintaining social distancing to weed out the virus as soon as possible. Others are, well being top category morons, and are moving around like nobody’s business. The need for the hour is for everyone to look inwards and work with the government in tackling the crisis. I decided that it is better to reflect than give you advice on real estate, job problems which you aren’t anyway going to use.
A lot of people ask me if I had predicted the virus and the economic aftermath associated with it. I had not predicted the virus. I had, however, clearly predicted the problems with the economy as early as 2016.
It had been a talking point with anyone and everyone who took up a phone consultation with me. I had made this point ad nauseam whenever someone asked me about career prospects, promotion chances in 2019/2020. I had been saying that resources will get sucked out of the economy and that is exactly what is happening with China coming to a grounding halt. I got ridiculed each time SENSEX and NIFTY reached new highs but I always maintained that the stock market doesn’t show the true picture of the economy.
Planets rule commodities and their malefic or benefic effects create an impact on input and output of industrial, agricultural and services economy. These basics are understood by anyone who has read Vyapar Ratna by Pt Hardev Sharma Trivedi and Shri Gopesh Kumar Ojha. Capitalism doesn’t directly fit in this criteria because it rewards monopolies who can constrict supply and manipulate demand.
So, when will the situation get really better? Last month itself when one such gentleman asked me if the worst is over, I responded with one statement पिक्चर अभी बाकी है मेरे दोस्त! Problems with COVID-19 will start to get better around April 15th when an exalted Sun will start to get aspected by an exalted Mars from Capricorn. This will mean that the government of the day will be able to act with military precision. However, that is still 2-3 weeks away. Jupiter getting neechabhanga in Makar will help. However, the retrogression of planets makes existing problems worse for people in transit. Saturn and Jupiter will have to start forward motion for things to start getting better. That will happen in September. However, झुलसी हुई धरती पर अंकुर केवल जनवरी २०२१ में ही फूटने शुरू होंगे.
The planetary positions for April 2020 are as follows:
