Jupiter is currently in Pisces (post here) and he will enter Aries on 22nd Apr 2023. With Rahu already sitting here, this will trigger a Guru chandal combination (post here) which will last until Rahu exits Aries (True Rahu – 29th Nov, Mean Rahu on 30th Oct) and moves 15 deg away from Jupiter (29th Dec 2023). Ketu in Libra will be fully aspected by Jupiter during this time. Jupiter has already entered within 30 deg of Rahu so some basic effect of the Guru Chandal has already started. And on 5th Apr, Jupiter and Rahu will be 15deg apart. This will trigger the full effects of the combination. (Eclipses occurring during this time will act as triggers for global events).
The paap kartari of Saturn and Rahu is affecting the auspiciousness of both Venus and Jupiter. And currently Venus conjoint Jupiter in Pisces (Venus exalted in Pisces and Jupiter owns Pisces) is also causing confusion. Venus will be able to give his regular auspicious blessings after 6th Apr when he exits Aries. Also the transits of Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus through Pisces and Aries during Feb Mar 2023 (also in Feb Mar 2024) are going to aggravate these problems. Jupiter will be combust, in the entire Apr 2023 intensifying the negative results.
Guru chandal yog 2023 will be fully aspected by a powerful Saturn from Aquarius. Aquarius is his mooltrikon rashi. And he will be using his intense 3rd aspect on the Guru chandal – Jupiter Rahu. Saturn aspecting Rahu is called Shapit yog /dosh, ie a cursed combination (post here). Saturn aspecting Jupiter is also an intensely karmic combination (post here). One is the lord of expansion the other is the lord of contraction. When equal and opposite forces are forced to work together in one time period there is going to be intense confusion. This aspect will continue till Jupiter leaves Aries on 1st May 2024. This year, both Saturn and Jupiter are not changing signs during their annual retrograde motion, Saturn continues in Aquarius throughout and Jupiter continues in Aries throughout without a change.
Saturn, Jupiter and Rahu – Ketu are the slow moving forces and whenever they mutually interact, conjunct, aspect etc they trigger severe karmic events. If you have any of these combinations in your birth chart, ie Jupiter – Saturn, Jupiter – Rahu, Jupiter – Ketu, Saturn – Rahu, Saturn – Ketu, then be prepared for a karmic rollercoaster in the near future. Even otherwise, everyone will see the effects of this transit combination in their lives. New babies born during this time will have this combination in their birth charts as a life time energy.
For individual charts, whichever house Aries falls in will see the full effect of the Guru chandal aspected by Saturn. You will take wrong decisions with respect to the keywords of this house, act in Adharmic ways, be cheated, or cheat others, over reach and fall flat on your face, feel hopeful but then lose it all. However if the birth chart is strong enough then you will be able to create some long term material asset using their energy. But then be careful about creating even more karmic entanglements during this time.
Jupiter is the jiv karak, ie he is responsible for maintaining life on this earth. This means that he is responsible for, peace, food, health, marriage, children, dharma etc. He is now associated closely with the Chandal Rahu. Chandal means someone who has terrifying and intense energies or has to work in places with such strange and dangerous energies. Rahu is definitely a strange and terrifying force and is very powerful in Aries. Aries is a generally good environment for Jupiter but this time with Rahu and aspected by Saturn things are not going to be peaceful, safe or conducive for life and easy living.
So during this time, expect dramatic changes in the finance systems, food production and supply systems, gold price, religious activities, spiritual practices, relationships etc. Use of drugs, intoxicants, hallucinogenic agents, addictions will increase. People will be more than ever hooked to the virtual worlds and this will have a negative impact on general mental health. Unhealthy food, fast food will be consumed in more quantities causing increased health issues. There will be a lack of jobs, lack of opportunities and overall depression as Rahu will negatively affect all the keywords of Jupiter. Something like fate itself turning against the human race.
Everyone’s analytical power, intuition, wisdom, common sense will be fascinated by Rahu and fail. Misunderstandings, mistrust, disputes, lack of coordination, loss of cooperation in expected and mistakes made in the past will haunt everyone. Even if you gain something that sense of satisfaction will be denied. And most of the gains that you get during this period will be temporary, unstable and illusory.
Saturn’s aspect will bring on the negative karmic fruits or curses which will cause more problems. Students and education will also suffer in some way. During this time religious heads might misguide or create negative emotions in their followers. Riots, civil disruptions, terrorist attacks etc can increase. Enemy nations will use covert ways of attacking. Eg using foreign funded NGOs who pretend to be helpful. Several nations will go bankrupt, including some of our neighbours.
This combination is not auspicious for Bharat. We are due for our national election in 2024 and this makes us a target. Hopefully our security systems will be ready for this. And when you vote, look at the past actions, Dharmic/Adharmic, of the candidates and ignore the promises that they make for the future.
The Guru chandal yog will give the following results as per the birth Moon sign.
Aries borns will be facing the brunt of the Guru chandal. Everything that you think is your ‘personal thing’ can cause problems for you. ie your personal health, personal environment, your personal relationships, personal finances etc. You might be shown several opportunities in this time frame, but most will be hollow on the inside. Choose intelligently. Changes on several levels are possible, eg job, business, residence, relationships etc. Income may go down or you may be unable to save money, budgeting will be necessary.
Taurus borns will face mental stress. Your elders, relatives and friends might misguide you, so do think for yourself before taking advice from others. Rest will be affected, you might feel lonely during this time and emotional health might suffer. Death/ permanent separation of at least one close relation can occur during this time frame. You might face constraints in your profession and expenses might increase. On the positive side, your enemies will be powerless and you will remain in general good health.
Gemini borns will have new people entering their lives in this time frame but not all of them will be trustworthy. Do not take up bad habits or cheat others under the influence of such friends and beware of get rich quick schemes. Temporary separation from close family members is possible. If you are planning to marry during this time, recheck everything before committing to the new alliance.
Cancer borns will suffer especially in their profession / business. Your boss will not support you and change in job is possible. Social image might be tarnished and your relationship with your father might see ups and downs. You might be required to spend time away from your family. Separation from the mother and distress sale of ancestral property and lands is possible.
Leo borns will face disputes with the elders in the family. Do not do anything which damages your reputation. Death or permanent separation of a close family member is possible. You cannot expect much support from your siblings, team-mates or stock market investments. Your wife will disagree with you so learn to be patient. Be careful when driving. Perform all your dharmic duties, eg pujas, ancestor tarpan, kuldevata pujas etc sincerely as any omission now will have far reaching consequences.
Virgo borns will feel generally hopeless. Issues in profession, business, money flow, projects etc will cause stress. Any major decisions under the influence of Jupiter in the period from Nov 2022 – Jan 2023, might be regreted now. You will question your self, your deeply held philosophies /opinions and your actions. You will feel threatened in strange ways. Health, both physical and emotional might be affected. Family life will be disturbed and there will be a distance in relationships. Selfishness/ cheating by your close family members will come to light and deeply disappoint you.
Libra borns will suffer because of the actions of their spouse and business partners. If you are planning on getting married recheck the prospective alliance thoroughly before going ahead. Business, ongoing projects, money flow will be affected. Legal issues may suddenly pop up as people will try to cheat you. You will feel unsure about your actions and self doubts will make you restless. Some negativity from your past or entities may haunt you now. Health should be a priority for you, make sure you consult a qualified medical professional as misdiagnosis is possible.
Scorpio borns will feel bold and capable during this time. And there will also be several opportunities for growth in finances, profession etc. Do not cheat anyone or act against Dharma under the influence of the Guru chandal, remember Saturn is watching. You will feel restless and want to do so much, be careful do not over reach. Rest will be affected, you might get intuitive dreams. There will be a subtle drain on your personality which you will not be aware of now. Later this will cause problems. So be reasonable about things. Your investments and efforts can go waste.
Sagittarius borns will meet many fascinating people and feel attracted to them. Do not fall for the wrong type else you will regret it later. Love matches now should be checked thoroughly to avoid disappointments later. You will feel good about everything, self confidence will be high. There will be several outlets for you to express your creative genius. Avoid risky speculations as saving money might be difficult in this time and control wasteful expenditure.
Capricorn borns will suddenly swamped with work. Especially household issues, land issues, property matters, repairs in the residence etc will occupy your mind. Your mother might demand your attention. However you will not be able to spend much quality time with your family. You might neglect your professional work or you might miss a promotion or a change in job is possible. Make sure that you get enough rest during this time.
Aquarius borns will face issues with the siblings. Resolving these will be difficult as these relatives will try to dominate or otherwise suppress you. Finances, division of ancestral property etc will be an issue. Your office teammates might try to get you in trouble or take credit for your work. Investments should be done only after careful checking and there is a possibility of losses in the stock market.
Pisces borns will again get new opportunities for work and to show their professional skills. But the office environment will be oppressive. Your finances will improve, you will be able to save money. Your family will give you importance and relatives who had broken relations with you may come in contact again. But always think on what motives they may have and do not open yourself emotionally to everyone. Do not give away your money or help your family members at a cost to yourself during this time.
If you are of a spiritual bent of mind then you can find some strength in your internal Self. In any case, daily pujas are a must which every follower of Sanatan Dharma must perform. Give yourself these 5mins daily, make it a habit, learn to invoke the higher divinity with you. This will help you cope with the vagaries of life in a more balanced way.
Remedies for the Guru chandal as aspected by Saturn are as always Mantra and Daana depending on the individual charts and behavioural changes if you are aware of what is happening to you. (index page)
Jupiter leaves on 1st May 2024.. right?
I have a question about degrees Ra/ke sit in a nakshatra.. Is it given a different meaning than other planets like Ju/Sa etc.. when they occupy higher degrees like ( 27/28/29) because their direction of motion is anti-clockwise? I think read somewhere, if two planets occupy nakshatra, the one travelled to a higher degree wins or is in a better position? (or is it otherwise? )
Can we apply this concept during transits to Ra/ke too? (Like Ve crossing Sa in aquarius on Jan23)
Thank you so much for writing this blog. 🙂
as per drik panchang , yes
only the 5 tara graha participate in graha yuddha.
i think of their retrograde motion as a karmic schedule /time/ experience which we have to follow. we have no conscious control over this.
the rare times when they are in forward motion, ie around eclipses, are different.
do use the index page for more posts on rahu ketu. i have written a lot on them.
Ok, thank you for your reply..
I think it needs to be corrected to the 2024 then .. 🙂
thank you 🙂
corrected the typo.

Is Ju-Sa-Ra together also a guru chandal? I see only two planet and rahu – ketu permutation combination.
Thank you so much I will read your information not that I understand, but I’m kind of fit myself into your understanding even though I don’t understand everything I love everything you telling me and I try to find myself where i fit in please keep sending me your information I want to learn. Thank you so much.
I’m always curious about your insights. Thanks for post. Being born in Aries, I’m already feeling the pressure from all directions in my life and I’m expecting more in the future. I hope all ends for good.

Namaste Tejaswini ji,
Many, many thanks for yet another precious post🙏🏻 Since last 2 days I was hoping that you’d write something on this upcoming transit and here is your post!♥️
I have loved the images you put in all your posts. But the ones in this post just made me shudder! They felt like dire warnings!
If Jupiter is a strong Ascendant lord (but with Rahu) and Moon is also strong (good Ashtakvarga scores) then the effects will be somewhat less, right?
Lots of love and gratitude
Namaste Tejaswini ji,
I had two questions unrelated to this post and would appreciate any advice.
1) In the event of severe pitr related karma where tarpans the best we could do in the US have been done, but the dreams of snakes and ancestors still persists, is there anything else that we can do? For this, we are currently pouring water daily on shivling, and giving daan at the temple every amavasya, and milk every Monday for abhishekam at the temple . I have heard of Kalabhairava Ashtakam, could that help? Or if there is anything else?
2) Is there a difference in the intensity of these karmas when the chart has malefics in the 5/9th houses vs a kaal sarp with no malefics in 5/9th houses of the chart?
keep on doing these practices and consult a professional and ask a prashna on this.
Kaalbhairavashtak by Adi Shankaracharya is very beautiful. reciting it daily does grant protection.
if you want to, then start on a Sunday.
yes, if the Dharma trikon is affected then the intensity is more.
Why reciting Kalabhairava Ashtakam on sundays..?
Whats the relation between Sunday and Bhairav..?
May be its small doubt for you..
But.. I want to know why priests suggests Reciting it on sundays?
coz Sunday is the day of Bhagwan Bhairavnath..
Thank you so much mam. The pundits here do not think there is a problem and the dreams are due to stress. I do not believe that is case. I will try to find someone who might be able to cast a prashna but difficult where I live.
To confirm, Kaalbhairavashtak grants protection, but can it help in balancing karma from ancestors, and if so is there a specific procedure? I was assuming it would if Bhagwan Bhairavnath is the ugra avatar of shiva? Many thanks for your time.
or you can ask the question yourself.
light one deepak and think of your one question intensely.
Ask Agni dev, he is the Jaat vedah, he knows everything.
the answer will come in dreams or just flash before you or a chance remark or something like that..
He is ugra yes, so generally householder level people worship Shri Vatuk Bhairav , his somewhat milder form.
balancing karma for ancestors – kuldevata worship and tarpan from time to time.
Don’t put it like that. it is not wrong, but not right either. Technically we are all ‘avtars’ of Shivah.
Bhagwan Shankar has no avtars.
Only Bhagwan Vishnu has avtars.
Hi Tejaswini ji,
I have been following your blog and able to understand and learn astrology as per my standards and i would like request you one important thing if it’s possible to you, could you pls take a example sample chart and read that chart in your way in a post so that new astrologers will get some idea like where to start and which areas should cover first and where to stop etc etc
We might get these kinds of example readings from outside but I feel if it’s from you it would be very helpful and valid and very useful for newbies.
I hope you will accept my request.
As mentioned in this post, this is certainly a difficult time for me too as I am going through unexplainable exhaustion and bad health. Whenever I go through bad situation, Kaali Maa is the person I think of .. and I am writing this specially to ask you for an advisable prayer or mantra to strengthen my relationship with Maa to withstand through these difficulties. Also, from my understanding of a previous post, if any mantra to Kaali Maa is not taken properly, it can turn out to be even a curse and now I fear whether I might have done something like that.
Is it ok to directly use a mantra to pray to maa without any initial rituals ?
If possible, can you please suggest a small mantra to pray to Kaali Maa, as I have always felt a certain strength when I think about amma. Thank you .
We use Shri Sukta for all Devi pujas including Devi Kali.
If you want protection then Devi kavach from Devi Mahatmya is quite effective. Start on a Friday.
