VENUS INTO ARIES : MAY 31-JUNE 18TH -THE PARTY IS OVER –or is it just beginning?


Venus leaves Pisces on Wednesday and moves into Aries  where it it has been holding up  the material world and the art world and our relationships since  being exalted there since late January.  Venus is relatively unafflicted in this transit except this week until June 3rd where it joins Saturn in the D-9 chart for a few days into June 3rd and spends some time in the gandanta or knotted area where complex problems seem overwhelming and difficult to untie and without solution.   Still it strong here and ready for a new beginning and a fresh start and a quick push out of the gate like Ashwini the horse at the track.

The darker side of Venus is Aries is felt more until June 3rd where one can get intimate too quickly looking for the thrill of romance and being strongly sexed and attracted to loose or unreliable people.  It can generate reproductive problems.  As it moves away from the early degrees of Aries, it does get better and develops a sense of fiery play and becomes seductive, fun to be with, playful, adventurous, spontanenous and generous and a bit passionate and very creative.

Venus will first be in the constellation of Ashwini (Aries 0-13.20) until June 13th. Ashwini   is know in modern astronomy as Alpha-Arietes and Beta-Arietes near the bright star of Andromeda between March 2-April 1st. The symbol for Ashwini is a horse’s head representing a dauntless spirit of adventure and a head-strong nature.  This transit usually fosters self-starters and energy to complete projects.   It is also a very healing constellation and so there will be more energy for healing.  The ruling deities are the Ashwin twins who ride in a golden chariot and shower healing energy down to the earth plane. They are the “Physicians of the Gods”.  This is a nakshatra of initiation, revitalization and transformational healing.  The ruling planet is Ketu (South Node of the Moon), which gives a mystical and mysterious bent to their life journey.  Ketu is channeling Mars’ energy from Dhansihta (Capricorn 23.20-Aquarius 6.40) and Mars is the constellation of Orion until June 5th and this will bring a lot of sexual passion in the first part of transit.  At the same time it can create a push pull toward austerity and celibacy if one is recovering from a broken relationship or regrets a hasty affair.   In the end, slow down before jumping in and out of relationships or moving too quickly as thing may suddenly seem like they are moving too fast.

Venus moves into Bharani (Aries 13.20-26.40) June 14-26th where its most creative energies unfold for artistic projects and heightened creativity.  Venus will be more unafflicted creating more courage to get things done quickly.

Venus is conjunct Uranus on Saturday, June 3rd and will feel that energy most into Friday, June 2nd.  This conjunction can create unexpected events and excitement and the quest for new experiences  through love and artistic expression.  You might suddenly meet someone out of the blue who seems radically different and exciting.  Enjoy the change and excitement for a few days.  Venus/Uranus energy creates a lot of excitement and deep energy and usually is great for artistic adventure.   Venus conjunct Uranus usually is positive for movement in the US stock market and can create a lot of movement contextual to what is happening.

So the party is over for Venus who enjoyed an unusually long stay in Pisces where the height of its relationship skills and artistic expression were able to come out.

Libra rising will definitely have more of the sudden and quick relationship energy that we have discussed above with a 7th house transit of the ascendent lord.  Taurus rising, owned by Venus can also have a lot of sexual energy but may experience more expenditures over the next month so watch your shopping addiction  if romance gets too complicated and difficult over the next month.  Geminis will benefit from more female friendships with an 11th house transit and woman’s groups.   Scorpio and Virgo and Cancer  rising and moons could have the most difficult with this transit as they are 6 and 8th and 10th from the ascendent.

As always, gratitude to my Gurus and jyotish Gurus for their wisdom and guidance.
