As we know Hindu New Year starts on chaitra shukla paksha pratipada. This year Sun and Moon enter into degree conjunction on 1st April 2022 at 11.54 hours. Amavasya ends at this point of time and pratipada starts. But as per Hindu system of calendar it will be celebrated next day after Sun rise. Hence it will be on 2nd April 2022 i.e Saturday. Lord of Saturday is Saturn. Hence Saturn becomes the King of the year. Saturn is regarded a malefic planet and hence it is not good for the world. Rainfall will be scanty. There may be drought in some parts of the country. Public will suffer on account of thieves and antisocial elements. There will be an epidemic and many people will die in war or riots. People will mourn death of near ones. These results are there when Saturn becomes the king of the year as described in sloka 19 to 21 of chapter 19 of Brihat Samhita. Male Buffalow( भैंसा) is said to be the vehicle of Saturn as king of the year.
Prime Minister of the Year is decided on basis of the planet which rules the day on which Sun enters first point of Aries.

It is good and neutralises many bad effects of Saturn as lord of the year. There is happiness, plenty of crops and plenty of cattle and milk. Hence agriculture front gets improved by Jupiter becoming the Prime Minister of the year.
In addition to the King and the Prime minister of the Hindu New Year some other portfolios are also decided on the basis of entry of Sun in ardra nakshatra (lord of the clouds),in Gemini sign(lord of the fluids),in Cancer sign(lord of the paddy crops),in Leo sign(lord of the defence),in Virgo sign(lord of the wealth),in Libra sign(lord of fruits and vegetables), in Sagittarius sign(lord of the corns) and in Capricorn sign(lord of the metals and minerals).The condition and placement of these lords give an insight into different aspects of human life but the horoscope prepared at the time of start of Hindu New Year reveal particular events that are likely to happen in the year.
