EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS RETROGRADE/ COMBUST MARCH 20-30TH
Venus stays in Pisces its sign of exaltation until late May and usually this is a good transit as Venus has very high energy for strong relationships and artistic expression. But March 20-30th, Venus will be too close to the Sun and is burned up with the exact conjunction on Saturday, March 25th. The exact conjunction on March 25th can actually be a good thing infusing Venus with the Sun’s Divine rays and making it a star and Oprah Winfrey has that configuration in her chart. Still the time before and after the conjunction is more problematic.
Sun/Venus combustion can raise jealous issues so remember to praise others and appreciate others at this time and help them and applaud their success and good fortune. Jupiter is opposing Venus so it can uplift some of the energy but also set off a shopping spree as the heated energy thinks it will be happy if it just buys more.
Last time Venus was combust and retrograde in Pisces was March 23-April 2nd 2009. This energy would normally create strong passionate expression and artistic creative energies for artists but with the afflictions can lead to major relationship outbursts. If the sexual/creative energy is not allowed to express itself it can lead to major conflicts. Best outlet for frustrated energy would be to do some wild dancing, take a craft class, sing loudly with the radio turned up or go on a wild shopping spree or create a massive artistic dinner with friends that you are not likely to get into fights with.
The conjunction can also lead to manipulative energy in relationships and cause annoyances and friction and problems so remember to accept people with all their imperfections or you will likely be seething with anger. Take care of your the reproductive organs as problems can happen during this transit. If you are feeling friction, take a walk and get out the house rather than get into battle with your partner.
New moon conjunct Venus is on March 26th and it will also lead to indulgence in pleasures, over-spending, over-eating or too much sexual activity.
Taurus and Libra rising signs in Vedic astrology may continue to experience intense fatigue as the Sun moves toward Venus into March 26th and it will not be free until after March 30th so get extra rest and watch over-eating or zoning out watching too many movies or you will get exhausted.
I personally find the Venus/Retrograde combust period one of the more difficult transits to deal with and it requires patience with people and their imperfections.
For the financial markets, the dollar and crude likes the retograde/combust Venus but gold and silver and grains and cattle and stocks do not. Expect political relationships to also a mess.
Special thanks to my teacher Komilla Sutton and all my Jyotish Gurus and spiritual gurus for their wisdom and continual inspiration.
MULTIDIMENSIONAL APPROACHES IN VEDIC ASTROLOGY COURSE:
So I wanted to give you a personal invite to my new course starting Sunday, April 9th. It is about expanding our limited perspective of how we look at charts so that we not just caught up with our natal chart which is more of our physical world but we learn how to look at our mental, emotional, soul levels, life purpose, hidden talents, and how are chart changes in time and as we move to new locations. I think it is something that is not taught enough. I am offering a special March price of 199.00 (March is in like a Lion) through March 20th. I have written an article about the course and the article is attached in word if you have not read it before.
