Turbulent Time (7 May 2024 to 6 June 2024) – Navigate with Care   

Please refer to my earlier predictions  made on 5 April 2024 on Hindu New Year (Krodhin) falling on the Solar Eclipse day (8 April 2024), I have made it very clear that Fire & Water elements would play an important role in Word events.  We have witnessed  the role of  FIRE elements in an action  as  Wars between Israel & Iran, Israel & Palestine,  and Russia & Ukraine. And the role of  Water elements in action as Floods in Dubai, Oman, Saudi Arabis, etc.

Keeping all these in mind, I request one and all to Navigate your Life with care for the  forthcoming months, especially May 2024.   The forthcoming  would not be as easy as we hope.  Those who have missed the earlier posts may read here.  


In summary, May 20224 would see a Turbulent Time due to Jupiter & Venus in combustion, Anagarika Yoga  and Sun in Kritika Nakshatra.

Please note the following parameters:

 1 May 2024 – 14 May 2025:   Jupiter moved  in  Taurus Sign on 1 May 2024 and would remain there till 14 May 2025. Here are some salient points:

  • Jupiter remains in a sign for almost a year.

  • Jupiter is considered the significator of Jiva (Life and Vitality). 

  • Jupiter is an excellent teacher, and his presence enriches both the signs he transits and the people who receive his aspects.

  • Taurus is ruled by Venus.

  • Taurus is an Earth sign that represents ‘Food, Possessions, Finance, Stability and Plenty’. From this point on, some solutions to the food and financial difficulties will be worked on.

  • Lately Jupiter was under the challenging aspect of Saturn and Rahu, hence  failed  to fulfil his auspicious role and as result  the world suffered from significant calamities.  On 1 May 2024, Jupiter  has moved away from the malefic effects of Saturn. 

  • Saturn would ingress Pisces on 29 March 2025, gets very close to Rahu and would throw further challenges to Jupiter and its significations.

  • Some turbulent astrological event may take place  from March 2025 till May 2025, when  Saturn would ingress in Pisces and get closer to Rahu and throw their aspects to Jupiter in Taurus till Jupiter moved away to Gemini in May 2025

  • Considering all the above parameters, during the period May 2024 – March 2025 the astrological patterns will undergo a dramatic shift.    Those who have some planets in Taurus or Taurus rising may have financial success, stability, and intimate connections with loved ones.

Two Gurus  (Jupiter and Venus)  but different Agendas

For deeper understandings let us look at the significations of Jupiter, Venus Taurus and Combustion

  • Jupiter,  the  ‘Brhaspati’  is also known as   ‘Gurdeva  of Devatas (Demi Gods’,  In natural chart,  Jupiter is the Lord of Sagittarius, the  9th house of Dharma and  the Lord of Pisces, the 12th house of Moksha.    Jupiter represents  Expansion, Prosperity, Wisdom, Ethics, Values, Growth, Knowledge, Religion, Spirituality,  etc

  • Venus, the ‘Shukracharya’ is also known as the ‘Gurudeva of Danavas (Demons)’. In natural chart,  Venus is the Lord of Taurus, the 2nd House of ‘Finance, Possessions and Family’ and the Lord of  Libra, the 7th house of  ‘Relationships, Partnerships and Business’.   Venus represents Love, Sex, Intimacy, Music, Art, Pleasure, Enjoyment, etc

  • Taurus is the most practical and diligent sign of the zodiac, in addition to being the most determined. Taurus is ruled by Venus. Taurus is an Earth sign that represents ‘Food, Possessions, Finance, Stability and Plenty’. From this point on, some solutions to the food and financial difficulties would be worked on.

Please note: From the above significations of Jupiter and Venus, you may appreciate how much important it is to have these planets without any evil aspects and as well placed in any birth chart

Planets in Combustion

In Vedic Astrology, a planet is said to be ‘combust’ when it is in close proximity to the Sun. The combustion has a greater influence as it gets closer by degrees. If you look at the planets, the brightness from the Sun makes it difficult to see the combustible planet. This signifies that planet’s influence has been ‘overshadowed.’   Sun evaporates the energy of the combust planet,  dries him out, absorbs his power, hence combust planet cannot exercise his powers independently. All of combust planet’s significations become tainted by the keywords of the Sun. In other words, The  significations of the Combust planets  work as per the Directions of Sun.

Here are two periods of combust planets:

  • 7 May 2024 –  6 June 2024: Jupiter is combust

  • 29 April 2024 – 11 July 2024: Venus is combust

The above parameters indicate, during the common period of combustion   i.e., from 7 May 2024 to 6 June 2024, both  the Gurus, ‘Deva Guru Jupiter’ and ‘Danava Guru Venus’ would NOT be available for us.   Generally speaking Combustions often offer problems, but  as always, we have the decision of how to deal with these energy.

As said above Jupiter represents  Expansion, Prosperity, Wisdom, Ethics, Values, Growth, Knowledge, Religion, Spirituality,  etc.  When it gets  combust,  potential of Jupiter goes down and you may notice a loss of drive, lack of motivation, lack of confidence, or a feeling of stagnation in your personal and spiritual development. Especially at the home where this happened to you.   Along with the significations of Jupiter, signs Sagittarius and Pisces may not offer their full potential.

 Similarly, as said above Venus represents Love, Sex, Intimacy, Music, Art, Pleasure, Enjoyment, etc. And Venus rules of Taurus and Libra signs.  All of their significations would be impacted.


Due to Jupiter’s combust in this area, people will be more stubborn than normal. Also, they won’t know what to do on a practical level. Furthermore, they will experience confusion when it comes to the practical levels. Do not expect systems, processes, or regulations to be followed at this time.


‘Angarka  Yoga’ (23 April 2024 – 1 June 2024)

Angarka yoga occurs when the planets Mars and Rahu align with one other.   When these two planets get closer to each other, Mars induces wrath, while Rahu amplifies Mars’ characteristics, perhaps leading to increased aggression. If this powerful combination is not properly directed, an individual may get involved in unlawful behaviour.


Mars indicates Fire and Fiery elements,  Aggression, Activity and Rahu indicates Gases, Chemicals, Oils, Nuclear/Atomic, Blowing up things beyond imaginations.  Also Mars and Rahu are in Pisces, (the most sensitive sign of the zodiac),  and its lord Jupiter would is combust (7 May 2024  – 6 June 2024) , hence maximum harm may come to Pisces sign.


Mars rules  over Aries and Scorpio signs.  People who have Rising sign, Moon or Sun in Aries or Scorpio  may be  overconfident and make impulsive decisions that will haunt them later. Things will only improve once Mars moves to Aries sign on 1 June 2024


 Looking further at more parameters: 

  • 10 May 2024: Akshaya Tritiya (Sun and Moon are exalted) is a very auspicious day. Donating and doing good actions, assisting underprivileged people, and generally giving back to society to make the world a better place are all regarded fantastic things to do on the most important day of the year. 

  • 11 – 25 May 2024: Sun in Kritika Nakshatra.  Krittika is a fire Nakshatra, which means power and energy. Agni (Fire) is the God who rules it. In English, Krittika’s name means “a sharp object.” It has the power to be both helpful and harmful.   Northern  Hemisphere of the World may face intense heat during period. 

  • 12-13 May 2024:  Sun conjuncts  Uranus (the planet of Rebellious energy, sudden blows, riots, etc) may adding  fuel to the Angarka Yoga which is already in action. 

  • 18-22 May 2024: Mars Conjuncts Rahu in Pisces in water sign  exactly on 20 May 2024 forming Angarka Yoga.  Here Rahu and Mars come together to represent the negative aspects of Mars. Rahu contributes to the negative by creating delusions, lying, and engaging in excessively self-centred conduct.

  • 22-24 May 2024: Venus conjuncts Jupiter on 23 May 2024, get in a planetary war,  in Aries Fire sign whose dispositor Mars in water sign with Rahu,  in addition  Jupiter and Venus combust.  Fire, Water, Gases are activated . Water may include Fuels of any sort, oil of any types, etc. This all leads to BLOODSHED like scenario. God Bless

Anticipate too much violence, dishonesty, and discontent around. These days, this anger might manifest itself physically as terror acts and group conflicts or as discomfort on a national and worldwide scale. 


Note: Weather will get hotter as fiery energy increase. However, since this is a blend of fiery and airy energies in a water sign, there is a significant probability of heavy rain, floods, tsunami, thunderstorms, clous bursts and cyclones in certain locations.

Please note: Natural malefices planets  have entirely outweighed the natural benefices planets

The above parameters may give the followings:

At Personal Level:

  • Do not anticipate reasonable conduct or justice in the month of May 2024

  • Please look in your birth chart, where do you have Aries, Taurus, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces. These areas would be hit severely as due to combustion of both Jupiter and Venus would not have much say and Angarka Yoga

  • People with Lagna, Moon or Sun in either Aries or Scorpio are prone to suffer emotionally more than others. They may be overconfident and make impulsive decisions that will haunt them later. Things will only improve once Mars moves to Aries sign on 1 June 2024

  • One should take care as this Yoga has the potential to create angry, combative situations that may lead  to violent outbursts.

  • One should avoid to make important decision during this period

  • Do Not start any new project during this time

  • Avoid getting married especially when Jupiter or Venus are combust

  • Do not speak ill of others, otherwise it may get out of hands and the consequences could be thousandfold

  • Avoid gossiping

  • Look after your heath as there may be rise in “heat”-related health issues including dehydration, stomach issues, rashes, allergies, pimples, dangerous conduct,  accidents,  sun strokes, etc


At Mundane Level

  • Hot weather coupled with water elements getting very active.  This indicates at Thunderstorms, Explosion and flow of Lava, Cloud bursts, Heavy rain, Thunderstorms, cyclones, etc

  • Wars in or through Sea/Oceans cannot be ruled out

  • Politicians at their worst, too much of lying, speaking ill of others, creating delusion all over

  • Middle East is never cool, Mars/Rahu is a hallmark of terrorist attacks, riots, and violent protests; here’s hoping May isn’t a big one, but tensions are sure to rise.

  • Islamic Jihadis and/or Fanatics may create more problems worldwide

  • There will be tremendous “heat” on many levels; everything would seem to be blazing hot. The entire World would  see more heat waves, wildfires, wars, anger related issues.  I will not be surprised if this would create a   new conflict zones, among other things.

  • 19-27 May 2024: Furious Mars would transit the  Eclipse Point and potentially do much harm to the entire Globe, such as

  • Considerable increase in the number of violent Military Conflicts 

  • War like scenario

  • Conflict amongst nations has the potential to take a very terrible turn.

  • Spark religious disputes 

  • Violent acts against women in some major nations

  • Man-made Disasters

  • Terror attacks

  • Sabotage

  • Natural Disasters. Water and Air elements would play a significant role. I would expect Heavy rains, cloud bursts, Cyclone, Floods, Earth quakes, Ice may melt at the faster rate,  Floods,

  • Secrecy and/or Spies at work

  • Rise in Inflation

  • Slowdown of Economy in most parts of the world

  • War and crime would escalate  

  • Risk of Nuclear War

  • Political Scandals at peak

  • Disputes related with Religion, Spirituality and Holy places

  • Revelation of hidden secrets

  • The stock market may be in chaos

  • Underground efforts to destabilise countries

  • Health of powerful people will be in danger

  • Socio-political instability

  • Military Actions

  • Possible assassination attempt of the Leader

 22-24 May 2024: As said above, here  Fire, Water, Gases  elements are activated. Water may include Fuels of any sort, oil of any types, etc. This all leads to BLOODSHED like scenario. God Bless


Note: Sadly, the planetary configurations of June, July and August seem to be cruel. Once again causing the World would go through a bumpy ride, and this may continue  in the short future. One of the troublesome event seems to be the assassination of the Public figure somewhere between  5-9 July 2024
