According to the Vedic calendar, the new year (नव संवत्सर) starts from the pratipada of Shukla Paksha of the month of Chaitra month, which is on 2 April this year. The New Year, as is observed in several parts of India, will also be known as Vikram Samvat 2079.
This Samvat has been named Vikram Samvat Nal (विक्रम संवत नल). It is the last year of a mini era Indragni Yuga. There are five years in a such a yuga. The king of this year is the planet Shani (Saturn) and the minister of this year is the planet Brihaspati (Jupiter).
The lord of the first day of Vikram Samvat 2079 is given the status of a king for that entire year. Since this Indian New Year 2079 is starting on a Saturday, Shani, who is considered the lord of the planetary cabinet, the giver of fruits and judge of mankind’s deeds, is the lord. The influence of Shani, misconstrued by many as inauspicious, may bring marvellous results also due to gods’ guru Brihaspati in the ministerial position.
Coincidentally, Shani and Brihaspati, which are slow moving planets, are going to move under a different constellation (zodiac) in the month of April. Both the planets will be in a very comfortable position, with Shani moving to its original triangle sign Kumbha (Aquarius) and Brihaspati transiting in its own zodiac sign Mīna (Pisces). Due to the transit, these planets will be able bear results their maximum potential.
In the Gregorian year 2022, after 1,500 years, Vikram Samvat 2079 has started with the very rare combinations of Revati Nakshatra and three raja yogas. Astrologers say these conditions of the planetary constellations formed in the नव संवत्सर are special in many ways.
At the beginning of Vikram Samvat 2079, Mangala (Mars) will be in its exalted sign Makara (Capricorn); Rahu will be in its exalted sign Vrishabha (Taurus) and Ketu will be in its exalted sign Vrishchika (Scorpio). As the king of planets, Shani will transit in his own sign Makara too. Thus, this time in auspicious coincidences, after 1,500 years, the Samvat New Year is beginning in the conjunction of Shani and Mangala too.
Vikram Samvat 2079 will prove good for the those born in the rashis of Vrishabha, Tula (Libra), Dhanu (Sagittarius), Makara, Kumbha and Mīna. The people of these rashis will benefit on the financial front throughout the year. They will grow professionally and personally.
The natives of Simha (Leo), Karkata (Cancer), Vrishchika and Mesha (Aries) need to be alert and cautious this year, as their arrogant, aggressive and authoritative behavior can lead you to problems which will tarnish your image in workplace and personal relationships.
This will be an average year for Kanya (Virgo) and Mithuna (Gemini), they will get the fruits of their deeds.
