The theme of the 2024 edition is Aspects in Vedic Astrology, a subject that can even confuse some astrologers. Vedic astrology observes all the traditional aspects: sextiles, squares, oppositions, etc. (conjunctions are not exactly an aspect), but pay particular attention to 'special aspects' of certain planets; namely, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Vedic astrology also pays a lot of attention to sign aspects, to delineate certain effects, although not all astrologers utilize these.
Alan Annand has written an extensive study of aspects and planetary combinations titled, Drishti & Sambandha. He explains all the special Vedic aspects and the importance of understanding the different relationships between planets.
Marianne Jacuzzi has written about the difference between planetary and sign aspects in an article titled, Hidden in Plain Sight.
Darinka Maja’s article focuses on Saturn’s special aspects and their impact. Musings on Saturn’s Aspects delves into the highs and lows of Saturn’s influences.
And just so we are clear about the importance of Saturn and what it influences, Yvonne Beerenbrock has written an article about Saturn’s myths and special aspects titled, Saturn’s Aspects in Myth & Astrology.
I have written an article titled, Daśā Dṛṣṭi: Ripening Desires, in which I explore the timing of aspects within the context of daśās.
Included is an easy-to-follow 2024 Sidereal Ephemeris, and my 2024 Timelines, to help guide you through the year ahead.
Wishing you the best in 2024!
