Astrology Predictions for April 2024: Total Solar Eclipse April 8 Directly Across the US

The big story for April of 2024 will be the total solar eclipse that draws a line across the eastern portion of the US.  The path of totality (complete darkness) goes from Texas up through Maine. I will say that it does seem to portend some changes to the US as a nation, almost like the grain of sand that tips the scales in the other direction.

Total Solar Eclipse Path April 8 2024


Chart of the Eclipse

Looking at the chart of the eclipse itself, using the Vedic sidereal zodiac, I can see five planets (including the North Node) in Pisces, disposed by Jupiter in Aries, which is closely conjunct Uranus, which itself is disposed by Mars closely conjunct Saturn in Aquarius.  Powerful indeed.

I actually like this, it seems to portend a more compassionate trend (the Pisces planets), but also attentuated and driven forward (the Aries disposing Pisces planets), and then socially and progressively grounded (the disposing of Jupiter and Uranus by Mars and Saturn).  the final dispositorship of Mars and Saturn would be difficult, of course.  However if anything needed to be realistically manifested, this could be the type of overall astrological configuration, in my opinion.

Seeing that it literally occuring directly over the US, the most powerful nation; it would be too hard to dismiss and something that would tip the scales in the global karmic equation.  I don’t mean a nuclear war, but maybe the emergence of new world powers.

Eclipse Portends Cycles of Change

It is easy enough to see that there are major political-geopolitical swings about to occur such as the emergence of the BRICS economic bloc, the tide of the Ukraine-Russia war, and sentiments toward the US and its allies (Israel as one of them with the also current Gaza war).

The US election is in shambles with a barely functional current president Biden and the Republican frontrunner Trump imperiled by legal and economic challenges.  There is no clear leadership path. Government figures these days are so beholded to large corporate/financial entities, that those entities control both sides of the US government, and therefore there is no so-called mandate of the people in operation; i.e. it is basically corrupt.

Donald Trump seems to be on the path to the White House anyway, but he would be contintually under fire from opposition, and as a result the ensuing strife would simply create a status quo of the presidential leadership question for the US; no appreciable change.

The two other major powers, China and Russia on the other hand have very clear leadership and a strong approval of their populations with Xi Jing Ping and Vladimir Putin.  Their worse enemy being the US itself.

The US is divided, currently economically dominant on the world scene, but beset by massive internal problems with crisis in housing, crumbling infrastructures, inflation, debt, social unrest, failing healthcare system and massive corruption; it’s also in debt to the tune of $35 trillion.

While China and Russia are not immune to corruption themselves, they are in much better condition economically, growing at a much faster rate than the US. For China most of their infrastructure is very new.  They are on the rise, the US is in a deterioration spiral.

A shift in world power is eminent, a part of which this eclipse portends, maybe even sooner than we would think.

The idea of significant shifts oncoming has further support from the astrology in my opinion, especially for April of 2024, as we can see below.

The Mars and Saturn Latitudinal Connection

Just a few days after this total solar eclipse (very rare) we have the conjunction of Mars and Saturn in two different ways.

Both planets will occupy the same degree of longitude (zodiacal longitude) but also of the same degree of latitude (also called declination). Then Mars and Saturn will be in very close opposing degree of declination to the solar eclipse just a few days before.

This is like a double accentuation of the meanings of Mars and Saturn together. Saturn usually inhibits or thwarts Mars’ energy with a lot of attendant frustration or misfortune.  Some one or something may not be getting their/its way.

You can see in the image below that Mars and Saturn are very close in longitude degrees as well as declination at about 7 degrees below the ecliptic.

Mars and Saturn conjunct in latitude and longitude

Jupiter Conjunct Uranus April 20

Eight days after this, April 20th, Jupiter makes conjunction with Uranus in late Aries (sidereal).  This can be a very exciting time, about a week before and after.  Both new developments may be coming together, which for most people will be pretty good.  For the industrious and determined  however it may be the start of a really great thing.

What I like about the timing here is that it provides some time for us to recover, so to speak, after the hard turn that takes place over the 8th to the 12th of April referenced to above, and that we can take advantage of a burst of energy with newly formed perspectives provided to us by Jupiter and Uranus.

Also of note, Jupiter will make tridecile (108 degrees) to Pluto on April 12 just prior to this conjunction on April 20th; just more octane for the fuel.

Mars Conjunct Neptune April 28

Eight days after that, we have differently-exciting conjunction of Mars and Neptune on April 28.  While Mars can be very excitable, Neptune adds some false enhancements to the energy. Neptune and Mars can also result in mysterious losses of energy and motivation; it can also mean deceived/deluded force applied, action applied with errors and misguidances, etc.

Advent of Comet 12/P Pons-Brooks

As this was enough sky signs to consider already, we also the serendipitous appears of comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, making perihelion (closest to the Sun) on April 21, 2024.  This means that when the sky is suddenly plunged into darkness for a few minutes we will be able to see this comet in the sky at the same time.  It looks quite amazing already and its tail will only be growing bigger by then.  It should be quite a show.

Comets have been regarded as harbingers of change, wars or the deaths of leaders.  A comet in the sky looks like a spear, arrow or bullet.  I don’t necessarily subscribe to that belief, as seen in this entire report, there are a lot of celestial objects coming into very precise alignments.

The machinery of astrology is the Hermetic axion “As above, so below”; that is the heavens are a mirror to life on Earth below.  We’ve had major developments already such as the Moscow terrorist attack and the collapse of the Francis Scott Key bridge in Baltimore, MD.  How will the Earth “reflect” the skies in April 2024?  We’ll soon see.
