VENUS INTO GEMINI/CASTOR AND POLLUX: AUGUST 12-21ST

EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS IN PUNARVASU AUGUST 12-21ST

And now for a bright spot for the month! Venus  transited into one of my favorite constellations, Punarvasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) know by Western astronomers as Castor and Pollux.    Punarvasu means “the return of the light” and has the divine ability to bring spiritual light into darkness and it  reflects purity, satya (truth) and strong moral values.  It’s shakti or power is “the ability to gain wealth or abundance”. The main deity is Aditi, the Cosmic Mother, who bestows her creative abundance on all who seek her blessings. This lunar mansion is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the great benefic.

Venus in the constellation of Purnavasu August 13-24th (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) will connect it with Jupiter and maybe the two Gurus energy together can soothe any turmoil from the total solar eclipse on August 21st.   Still Venus’s transit here may still create desire to change partners or create uncertainty in relationship.  But the universal mothering and nurturing qualities of  Purnavasu will bleed into Venus’s maternal energy well.  Venus and Jupiter combinations can increase over-spending and engaging in sensual indulgences so watch your sweet tooth and keep your urges to go to the mall with your credit card under control or you may pay for it later.

This constellation provides nourishment  and nurturing after the tough storms of Ardra (Gemini 6.40-20.00) It creates contentment and grounding energy but sometimes lacks foresight which leads to complications and adventures.   If you were born with the Sun, Moon or Ascendent in this constellation, you have the qualities of a universal caregiver and are very generous.

The mythology is fascinating with Castor and Pollux with one brother naughty and cruel and the other one wise and generous.   Sometimes we have to fall in our face first with mistakes to gain wisdom in the future.  Events happen in pairs with this transit so if you fall, pick yourself up with new wisdom and move forward.

The constellation is connected to the merchant caste and will support courage for business expansion   during its transit and is a bright spot in a difficult month. Still with everyone worried about North Korea, will they go out and spend?
