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.

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)
