In March-April 2024, a certain configuration of planets, such as Mercury Retrogradation and the Solar Eclipse of 9 April 2024 may  create hiccups in Daily and Mundane life.  

Firstly I would humbly request to one and all,  

  • Please backup your Computers, Communication devices and Important  data ASAP, say before 19 March 2024.   In the event that your computer experiences a crash, you will not lose any important data.   

  • Keep your software up to date at all times: While Mercury is in retrograde, you should refrain from making significant modifications to your computer system. In the event that your computer does suffer issues, you should be patient and understanding. your accounts safe as there are strong chances of having problems with these

  • Avoid Arguments at all costs.  

  • Watch and keep an eye on your  ‘Communication’  that includes   the  way of expressing yourselves, the manner of conversation, let it be verbally, electronically, in writing, or even by your body language

  • Keep an eye onto your Mental Health

  • DO NOT sign any documents without reading the finer prints or consulting your legal advisor


Please note the following dates:

  • 7 March 2024: Mercury ingress Pisces-Purvabhadra sign where it gets Debilitated or say get Drained
  • 8 March 2024: Mercury conjuncts Neptune
  • 18-19 March 2024: Mercury conjucts Rahu
  • 25 Mar 2024: Mercury enters Aries-Ashwini and is at Gandanta point
  • 2 Apr 2024: Mercury becomes Retrograde from 3-01 degrees in Aries-Ashwini
  • 5 Apr 2024: Sun conjuncts Rahu
  • 9 April 2024: An important event takes place, Solar Eclipse at 25-12 degrees in Pisces-Revati. This would further Eclipse the significations of Mercury making thing more challenging
  • 10-26 April 2024: Retrograde Mercury ingresses back into Pisces-Revati on  10 April 2024 and slowly meets
    1. Sun on 12 Apr 2024,     
    2. Rahu from 23-24 April 2024
  • 20 Apr 2024: Jupiter conjunct Uranus, Venus conjcust Mercury -R
  • 26 Apr 2024 -11 May 2024: Mercury becomes Direct  in Pisces on 26 April 2024 and finally leaves Pisces sign on 11 May 2024
  • 26 May 2024: Mars visits Eclipse Point… something significant is on sight


 Points to be noted:

  • Mercury in Pisces gets ‘Debilitated’, ‘Fallen’, ‘Drained’ and loses power day by day
  • Mercury gets Retrograde – Encourages us to Review things in right perspective
  • Solar Eclipse takes place in Pisces too – This would further Eclipse the significations of Mercury making thing more challenging
  • Mercury enters Aries, then starts Retrograde motions and droops back to Pisces – Gets in ‘Deep Fallen State’


What does the plane Mercury stand for?

The planet Mercury, traditionally regarded as the ‘Messenger of God’,  symbolises the followings: 

  • Mentality, Intelligence,  Thinking processes and Learning Skills
  • Rationality/reasoning
  • Adaptability
  • Flexibility
  • General communication & understanding with others   
  • Communication tools/devices such as computers, mobile devices,  servers
  • Way of Thinking and Absorbing  information
  • Way of expressing ourselves, the manner of conversation, let it be vocally, in writing or even by our language 
  • Transactions
  • Documents
  • Travelling  & Transportation related  issues 
  • Vocal Cord and  Speech
  • Education
  • Books, Magazines
  • Stock Market
  • Technology issues
  • Spreading of Virus
  • Media – may become extremely unbelievable

In Medical Astrology, Mercury controls

  • The upper Respiratory  and Digestive tracts. Lungs are paired organs and under the control of Mercury (through Gemini) so the respiratory system can take a hit
  • The Skin and Nerves
  • Intestines
  • The Mental process, during retrogradation ,Mercury  may  cause depression, emotional instability, sleeplessness, anxiety to some

Mercury is the Lord of Gemini and Virgo   and Gemini controls.  Here Gemini controls   Shoulder & hands, Lungs,  Blood & Breath, Shoulder blades and Bones & Arms.  And   Virgo controls Abdominal & umbilical regions, Bowels, Intestines,  Liver,  and Nervous System. Hence some issues around these areas are expected during Mercury Retrograde


Please note, although Mercury Retrogradation period (2-25 Apr 2024) is mischievous but especially the period 10-26 April 2024 seems to be extremely volatile   


Seeing a planet in retrograde motion is like travelling through time. A reference to the past, suggesting erroneous data, a decision from the past, or a miscommunication from the past, would most likely be the result. When Mercury is moving backwards,   

  • We need to take our time and look over things carefully
  • He thinks and analyses things more now
  • Ponder upon unfinished business or  re-evaluate. 
  • It can be hard to communicate. But easier to misread and argue
  • Possibly, cars, trains, and aeroplanes won’t always run on time
  • Technical problems happen
  • Communication devices malfunction
  • Banking system get hacked
  • Covid may spread further
  • Stock Market fluctuate significantly and/or crash
  • We should pay close attention to what other people are saying and think before we talk
  • Always check information twice, especially when you are planning a trip
  • Simply, Mercury is weak and drained  in Pisces, which makes people worried, drowsy, depressed, have too many thoughts, and talk too much.


Throughout this period (especially between 10-26 April 2024), a variety of complications and problems may arise with the aforementioned.    

I strongly suggest,   

    • It is imperative that you do not sign any significant papers without first being familiar with the small print and talking with a qualified legal practitioner
    • Reconsider how you approach the activities and behaviours you are involved in
    • Make use of this chance to re-evaluate the situation in the appropriate context
    • Considering that many people would err as a result of a lack of comprehension, you should take things slowly and re-evaluate everything you do that is significant
    • Consider the path that your life is taking
    • Make an effort to be more patient
    • LISTEN to your own words before speaking
    • Take backup data of your computers and mobile devices
    • Be careful what you perceive from Media
    • Travel plans may change suddenly 
    • Keep an eye onto your Mental Health
    • Avoid Arguments at all costs


Watch-out Dates

8-10 April 2024:  Retrograde in Pisces

  • Remember the key word ‘Communication’ .  All sorts of issues may arise as mentioned above
  • Virus may spread further

11 April 2024: Mars Conjunct Saturn in 20-57 deg in Aquarius-Purvabhadra 

  • Mars signifies Action, impatience,    impulsiveness, and Aggression;  and Saturn signifies  Discipline, Delay, Being Cautious, Boundaries and Restriction.  
  • This  configuration may build up stress, conflicts, tension, anxiety and land up in in some sort of  crises, natural disasters, tornadoes, earthquakes, rebellious acts   and may hit back again around 19-26 May 2024 strongly when Mars would hit the Eclipse Point


20 Apr 2024: Jupiter conjunct Uranus, Venus conjuncts  Mercury -R

  • Here  Venus represents Values, entertainment Automobiles, beauty  and Jupiter represents Prosperity.  An event may affect the financial , automobile or entertainment industry.


19-26 May 2024: Solar Eclipse Point 0f 8 April 2024 gets Activated

  • Around this time, a high profile person may get Assassinated /Injured/Falls sick 


All of the aforementioned are only glimpses of what I anticipated would take place. The more time I have, the more I will write.

Simply my views. All significant events are occurring in Pisces, which is deposed by Jupiter.Jupiter is expected to bring about growth and prosperity, but this may not be the case because all nefarious activities will occur in its house Pisces, thereby indirectly affecting Jupiter as well.Additionally, Jupiter is situated in the fixed and earth sign of Taurus.In light of everything, I believe Taurus could develop some difficulties, such as those pertaining to the banking system, farmers, and so forth.
