EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS IN THE CONSTELLATION OF REVATI
Venus moved into her favorite constellation in the sky where she is exalted at 27 degrees but it will not reach there until May 27th. The first pada (Pisces 16.40-20.00) (May 16-19) which is owned by Jupiter which brings out its lucky, optimistic and philanthropic side but can lead to fanatical exposing of beliefs. Still this transit supports the spiritual side of Venus but also could bring up strong idealized visions of marriage to continue supporting the race. Still a great time for artistic and spiritual development that will be felt most on Fridays, the day the Venus rules.
The constellation of Revati is a very satvic or pure constellation that supports the spiritual warrior so service work or action that benefits humanity is supported the next three weeks.
Western astronomers connect Revati with a number of tiny stars in Pisces with the brightest one of them being Zeta/Piscium. The famous Pisces fish represent the fish swimming its path in the sea is connected to life-path and the path to liberation but it is more as it is connecting to the universal mind and reminds us of the true meaning of Jai Guru Dev, Victory to the Big Mind. Only by letting go of our small ego and surrendering to the Divine will, do we stand a chance of transcending the changing world.
The diety of the constellation is Pushan, connected to the sun, who lights the paths to the Divine and is connected to travel whether mental journeys or spiritual pilgrimages. Both are the same. As Saul Bellow’s character in Henderson the Rain King proclaims, “all travel is mental travel.” Hence our outer quests are part of our inner quest to return to the Divine.
Revati is ruled by the planet Mercury and contains all the Divine wisdom that exists in the Universe as it allows one to understand the possibilities of the entire creation. Hence as we get the spring transits through Revati and creating great yogas with Jupiter in Virgo aspecting Pisces, we should get a deep awakening of spiritual knowlege and a great time for spiritual journeys. This should lighten the heavy Saturn transit that will not relent this year and provide spiritual upliftment this spring with transits into Revati with May 16-31th and Use these transits to contemplate and discover the infinite nature of the Divine and begin new spiritual journey–both inner and outer.
Special thanks to Prash Trivedi for his insights into the wonderful constellation and to all my Gurus that continue to light the path. Blessing to you all this Sunday.
As always, we try to write general forecasts for the populace but transits are 20% of prediction and subject to the larger cycles you are running. Reading charts is like reading DNA strands and people are so unique. If you need a reading or update and what is going on, visit our website.
