Vikram Samvat 2077 ~ New Year 2020

As most of you are aware, the Vedic new year does not fall on January 1 or December 31. The beauty of the Vedic era was that everything was based on the combination of planets, yogas and not dates.

Every year on Chaitra Shukla Pratipada, Vedic Astrologer's globally cast the chart for the NEW YEAR after their prayers. This chart or map has the most considerable importance in understanding the year in general, and the results may vary based on the individual's chart. The Horoscope also varies from country to country; hence I will try to talk about most major counties and continents.

Before we study the Horoscope, we need to understand the following: –

1) “Chaitra Shukla Pratipada” and said to be “Astrological New Year”.Brahma (The Creator) began the creation process this time of the year when Sun & Moon were in Pieces.

2)This is the day when “Raj Jyotiṣa” or “Best Astrologers who consult kings” cast the chart of the country and guide them accordingly to take decisions.

 3) This day is also called as Ugadi (Yuga + Adi) hinting towards new world order. Devi pooja (Chaitra Navaratri) even starts today, 9 days are when we pray to Goddess in various forms.

 4) The student/Astrologer must “ALWAYS” make the chart based on the Capital of the country, not a state or place where they stay.

 5) The lord of the day and ascendant become “Most Crucial”, they are not the same for every country; hence all states/ countries don't have an “Exact Year” or “Similar Destiny.”

 6) In Vedic Astrology, we call it “Samvatsara” based on the count of 60 (Jupiter), each year has a name and this year it is “Sharvari.”

 7) Sharwari hints at a “Huge Transformation” and a new world order.

 8) This Vedic Year will be called “Vikram Samvat 2077

Now let us understand the new year chart in general.


As mentioned earlier, we make the chart from the exact conjunction of Sun/Moon, but there are some other technical details related to the YEAR LORD. Here are a few observations: –

  1. There is a Kalasarpa in the new year's chart, this is not good and shows grave danger.
  2. The axis is 6/12, and the signs involved are Sagittarius and Gemini.
  3. 6th is the house of enemies, and 12th is the house of expense and hospitals, globally, every government will have colossal healthcare expenses.
  4. The enemy here is Ketu, planet Ketu is the secret disease (Corona), and it is impacting Jupiter causing many deaths, continues in the new year
  5. The scariest part is the combination of Mars and Saturn in the 7th house of Finance, the global economy will go through its worst crisis, and it will not recover this year.
  6. The seventh house is also a “maraka house” confirming that corona and healthcare will continue to be “Major concern.”
  7. Mars is also MKS and being in even sign it will hit Aries, which is the 10th house of the profession; unfortunately, we will see lots of job loss and layoffs.
  8. With Venus in Aries, the private sector will be the worst hit. Especially the luxury sector like cars, perfumes, airlines, media etc. will be worst hit.
  9. The year lord is Mercury in the 8th house of transformation; hence Banks globally will work very hard to get things sorted.
  10. 8th house is also the house of debts and Mercury represents the business community in general, they will go through a massive cash crunch, and many will default.
  11. With Venus in Aries, we will get a remedy for Coronavirus when Sun is in Aries (April 15 to May 15, 2020). Venus has the power of medicine and is the seed of the remedy.
  12. Venus in 10th and shubh bandhana (good bondage) on the Yama Yoga (7th house) is an excellent pacifier to the bad combination.
  13. The 8/12 parivartana is the blessing of Vimala Devi, the Devi will bring a remedy from the virus ultimately.
  14. Jupiter will fight the bad combination once it leaves retrogradation.
  15. Overall a tough year but Mercury as year lord is suggesting you to “Keep Learning”, both Mercury and Jupiter are fighting it out and with some sensible decision making you will pass through it. Remember “BIG MONEY IS MADE IN BAD ECONOMY”

We shall study specif effects on countries a bit later.
