EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS IN A NEW CONSTELLATION–BHARANI STARTING APRIL 6TH-15TH.
Venus transits into Bharani (pronounced BAR-AN-NEE) which is located at 13.20 Aries to 26.40 Aries and is ruled by the planet Venus on Friday. To astronomers, it consists of 3 stars know as 35, 39 and 41-Arietes and its symbol is the female vagina which means that it embodies the eternal creative feminine energy of the womb. It relates to the capacity to receive, hold and nurture and even has some Kali energy associated with destruction as the archetypal quality of the mother that will protect her young at all costs.
Venus in its own nakshatra will support creativity or sexual activity, luxury, good food. The Aries energy may make them a bit aggressive or selfish and because this is a rajasic constellation, there is a desire for more sexual activity. The opposition from Jupiter which peaks into April 16th is supportive expansive action and spending so watch overindulgence in that extra piece of cheese cake or too many exhausting late nights with your partner–which will never feel satisfying. Still the connection with Mars from Aries can promote some fighting with partners but it should end well with the support of Jupiter.
Emotionally the constellation embodies caution, jealousy, struggle, sacrifice, sexuality, catharsis nurturing and maternal love. It is also connected to the god Yama, of death and transformation and operates in hidden unpredictable ways and enjoys its secrecy. Yama is not a serious deity as we might normally think of and has a lighthearted playful expressive quality also and it is a benevolent deity and should not be feared. Hence the constellation of Bharani deals with the extremes of creating of life as well as dissolution. Great time for new artistic ventures. I know a lot of artists that have this constellation and it does well when it creates great beauty
Trivedi notes that Bharani swings between a lust for life and a fear of death between the naivete and wisdom. It has a young child’s excitement to explore its surroundings without restraint. If your rising sign or moon is born under this constellation or your Sun (April 27-May 10th), you are capable of going through huge transformations and radical changes and need to exhaust all possibilities in your quest. Creativity is key word for this constellation and I often see artists born under this constellation which is not something one thinks about in Aries. If you were born under this constellation you can keep the peaceful countenance of Venus but may have raging storms going through you.
Always gratitude to my Jyotish gurus and personal Gurus for their light and guidance and to Prash Trivedi for his wonderful insights on the nakshatras.
