Sun Eclipse Impact On 8th April 2024

There is a buzz going on about the upcoming solar eclipse of 2024.

It will be a full solar eclipse and will turn day into night for a brief period of time.

Eclipses are well known to cause astrological impact on us and have piqued curiosity in the human mind since ancient times.

In this article, I will mention the details of this solar eclipse and how it will impact natives of all ascendant signs.

Let's first understand what an eclipse is.

An eclipse is a phenomenon where the shadow of the moon falls over the earth. For this to occur, both the Moon and the Earth should be in the same line, astronomically referred to as having the same declination. This leads to the Sun's rays not reaching the earth, causing darkness in some parts of the earth.

According to Sanatan Dharma beliefs, eclipses are caused by Rahu, a node of the Moon, who seeks revenge on the Sun each year.

The story goes as follows: During the churning of the ocean when the vessel of nectar emerged, there was doubt and confusion over who would have it. Both demons and devas were eager to possess it, but for the sake of humanity and the universe, demons were not allowed to have it under any condition.

Hence, Lord Vishnu took the form of a beautiful woman and used her charm to trick the demons. However, one demon named Swarna Bhanu realized what was happening and disguised himself as a god, sitting among the row where the nectar was being distributed.

This was noticed by Lord Sun and Moon, who quickly reported it to Lord Vishnu.

By the time Lord Vishnu took action and beheaded Swarna Bhanu with his Sudarshan chakra, it was too late.

Despite being beheaded, Swarna Bhanu became immortal.

His head became Rahu, and the rest of his body became Ketu.

Both vowed revenge on the Sun and Moon, which is why eclipses occur each year.

It is an interesting event with deep meaning, and its lessons apply to us humans in significant ways.

So each year when an eclipse occurs, these lessons become more significant.

The Sun is the universal father and is the karaka of the soul, health, and knowledge.

When Rahu, epitomizing arrogance and illusion, obscures the Sun, it leads to major issues around the globe.

Some potential impacts of a solar eclipse include:

  • Political instability.
  • War mongering.
  • Impact on crops.
  • Humans being weak in their decision-making ability.

Each country will experience these impacts differently. In India its Sutak period will start from 21:12 hrs (09:12pm) and will end on 9th April 02:22 am. 

The total duration of the Sutak period is 05 hours 10 minutes.

For India, there will be significant effects, especially considering the upcoming elections.

In India's natal horoscope, this will occur over the 11th house of gains, income, networking, and achievements.

By analyzing all parameters, it seems that India will undergo major changes in political ties globally.

Additionally, on a global scale, intensity may arise in Europe, exacerbating ongoing conflicts.

Eclipses also cause volcano eruptions and seismic activities like earthquakes.

While making predictions about this month's solar eclipse, it will be crucial to consider the positions of the other planets:

As you can see, all planets are closely aligned, and the image below illustrates the orientations and alignments of these planets.

Each of us will be affected in different ways, necessitating certain rituals and precautions on the day of the solar eclipse.

But no two individuals will experience the same impact, even if they have the same signs.

Such major planetary events bring lessons that are very personal and contribute to individual growth.

The general impact is mentioned below based on the rising ascendant sign.

Aries Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 12th house, which is a perfect place for an eclipse, especially when the native is seeking spiritual growth and answers.

With Venus also in Pisces, this eclipse will refine their spiritual values.

A strange pull towards isolation and pilgrimage will arise. The native will become very inclined towards meditation and hungry for intense spiritual growth.

However, this will only happen for those whose horoscopes have that potential.

Many Aries ascendant natives are likely to experience sleep-related issues, increased expenses, and unnecessary travel.

They will need to reevaluate their lifestyle and control their expenses.

When a malefic or afflicted planet's dasha is active in the horoscope, forced isolation, sleep issues, and financial losses can occur.

Relationships may disappoint, domestic peace will be affected, and interest in romance and intimacy will decrease drastically, leading to a change in approach towards relationships.

Taurus Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over the 11th house of gains, expansion, friends, and ambition.

Given that the ascendant lord is already exalted for them, this eclipse will prompt a reevaluation of emotions and life priorities.

Natives will become more conscious of their actions and judge the benefits and results of each action.

Those in a progressive dasha and in the midst of achieving a major goal may reach a point where everything slows down, and prospects may seem weak.

The final outcome will not be affected; rather, more than their expectations will be fulfilled.

However, their love life may suffer, and their emotions will undergo transformation.Children may experience a lack of focus in studies, and daydreaming and fantasies may replace productivity, resulting in a loss of valuable time.

Gemini Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over the 10th house of career, goals, and reputation, indicating a potential change in profession or organization.

There will be a feeling of moving away from the current project and starting something of your own.

If there are placements indicating business ventures in the horoscope, the native may make a bold decision to start their own project.

Relationships will take a back seat, and health issues could become complex. Even the relationship with the father may need attention, and inheritance-related arguments could arise.

Cancer Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over the 9th house of luck, father, long-distance travels, and religion.

Due to the lordship of the Moon, Cancer natives are sensitive to eclipses.

Any children born on this day with a Cancer ascendant will have a strong pitru dosha.

Natives will have similar experiences around this eclipse, and their religious beliefs may be challenged.

However, at the same time, if they push themselves, it can be a perfect period for a feeling of rebirth. The possibility of long-distance travel is seen, possibly related to work or religious purposes.

Father's health may deteriorate, requiring medical attention. This possibility applies when the karaka of the Sun or the lord of the 9th house is weak or afflicted in the natal horoscope.

Domestic peace will also be affected, and inheritance-related matters can become contentious.

Sudden travel plans may arise, and the native may have to pursue them unwillingly.

Leo Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over the 8th house of obstacles, occult matters, in-laws, and mysteries. This period appears significantly negative for their well-being, affecting both their physical and mental states.

Natives with a weak ascendant lord or afflicted 6th house need to take caution at any cost.

While driving, the threat can be quite high, and the operation of maraka dasha in the natal chart can pose grave dangers.

Their career may experience a downfall, triggered by this eclipse and leading to events that diminish their growth and potential.

Losses in business are also foreseen, occurring suddenly. The native may lose the trust of people, which could impact matters of inheritance.

Cash flow will deteriorate, and possible troubles from authority figures are also seen.

The spouse may complain a lot and be harsh in speech. In-laws may not be very supportive either, and the native could face criticism and objections from loved ones. This period is likely to bring them down in most areas of life and will require patience and guidance to deal with the aftermath of the eclipse.

Virgo Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 7th house of marriage, spouse, and partners of all kinds. The Sun is the lord of the 12th house, representing matters abroad, isolation, expenses, and spiritual growth.

They will benefit in matters related to the occult and spiritual growth. The native may see the possibility of meeting someone who will illuminate the path towards realizations. However, not all may experience such positive impacts.

Those with an afflicted 7th house and the dasha of an afflicted planet running in the natal horoscope may experience negativity over health, with concerns over physical safety arising.

Career-wise, an opportunity to go abroad may arise, but it won't be easy. Manifestations will follow after a series of troubles and problems. Expenditures will rise significantly, likely occurring on useless things. Medical bills may become high, either for the native's health or that of their father.

The native may feel isolated, and people at the workplace may keep their distance. The situation may become more challenging when seniors at work turn against them. All this chaos will lead to stress and a lack of peace of mind.

Health issues for the spouse are seen, and a major argument could trigger negativity over the marriage. If placements indicating a difficult marriage are present in the horoscope, the native will surely face a hard time in the months ahead.

Libra Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 6th house of illness, debts, injury, enemies, and issues. This period can draw attention to enemies, and hidden adversaries may work against the native.

Some may even face defeat from them, while others may compromise to ensure their safety. Ultimately, the outcome depends on the native's dasha and the placement of their 6th house in the natal horoscope. 

Toxic work culture can stress the mind, and the native may not enjoy their current career trajectory. This period requires attention to conflicts within the family, particularly with siblings or the father. Legal issues may also arise due to family disputes or the native's misdeeds.

The spouse may dominate and fail to understand the situation properly. Criticism from the spouse may become regular, and sleep issues may affect both the native and their spouse.

Financial concerns will require attention, and the native may need to seek loans or advances to meet their needs. Health may deteriorate, with issues like acidity, injury, surgery, and physical or mental fatigue. Existing health problems may flare up and require medical attention.

Scorpio Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 5th house of education, digestive system, children, passion, and hobbies. This period will impact their career position. Considering Jupiter's transit over the 6th house, they may lose their job or be forced into an undesirable position. 

If not a job loss, there could be issues at the workplace, and the native may lose patience in the coming months.

Many may find themselves working in a completely different field. Finances will be affected, and the native may struggle with debts. Students may face a lack of focus, and artists may experience a shortage of inspiration. 

The possibility of business losses is high, and investments may not yield expected returns. Matters related to children may bring worries, and pregnancy-related issues may require medical attention. Emotional disturbances may arise, leading to intense feelings of sadness and happiness.

Irregular moods and increased aggression may cause relationship issues. Failures in love affairs are possible, and a lack of peace on the domestic front may be observed. Stomach-related issues may bother them, and this period could lead to surgery. Lack of consistency in following a routine may also be a source of concern.

Sagittarius Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 4th house of domestic peace, vehicles, property, and luxury. They may be bothered by a lack of growth in life, with career stagnation gripping them further. The native may consider changing jobs or choosing a new organization. 

They may lose patience easily and struggle to think clearly. Inheritance-related disputes and property distribution fights may occur. 

There's a possibility that the native may choose to separate from the family and start life anew. Such a major change can be forceful. Vehicle and gadget damage may occur easily. Health issues related to the lungs and heart may flare up, impacting their mental health, potentially causing panic and anxiety attacks.

Capricorn Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 3rd house, stretching their limits and fostering courage. However, before that, the native may commit major mistakes. A workplace blunder could anger seniors, leading to potential transfer to an unfavorable location. 

Business may face obstacles, and the native will learn from mistakes made during this period. Efforts will be made to improve relationships with loved ones.

Marriage quality may improve, and the native may go on a trip with their spouse. New health habits will form, bringing positive changes. 

Aquarius Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 2nd house of family, providing an opportunity to cleanse karma and resolve family issues. Career may pick up with new opportunities arising. Sudden events may bring pleasant surprises. 

Inheritance-related disputes may increase, but the native may be fortunate enough to receive a major share. Attention to improving food habits, speech, and manners will be necessary. 

Positive changes in these areas will yield good results. Financial situations may significantly improve. There may be intense arguments with the spouse, or the spouse's health may be affected.

However, this period can provide an opportunity to resolve underlying issues permanently.

Pisces Ascendant

The eclipse will occur over their 1st house, refining their thinking and abilities. Before that, they may experience intense struggles, feeling burdened by responsibilities and helpless due to unfavorable conditions.

Career may slump, but eclipse effects may prompt actions to increase chances of success. The native will likely need guidance, possibly receiving divine help. Financial struggles may peak, with debts causing significant concern.

Relationships will be tested, and the health and habits of the spouse may be bothersome. Relations with family members may suffer. However, these challenges will lead to positive outcomes in the future. Minor surgery may be required, prompting the native to adopt a new routine to build physical and mental strength.
