When Venus moves out of exact exaltation which is at 27 degrees Pisces today and moves into the Gandanta on May 9th and then into Aries, there is a sudden rude awakening as the expansive energy of Venus and the relationship harmony can suddenly disappear.   Watch Friday as Venus will be more emotional in the Gandata (Pisces 29.20-Aries 0.40) where deep emotional unraveling takes place.  A trine from Jupiter exactly into Thursday, May 9th can feel great but can lead to overspending and over-indulgence so leave your credit card if you go to the mall and stay away from that extra piece of cheesecake.

Venus moves into Aries on May 10th and stays connected with Mercury but is relatively unafflicted in transit in Aries.   Still Venus in Aries can be over-sexed or argumentative. Still, Mars, the owner of Aries, is a bitter enemy of Venus and the darker side of Venus is Aries is felt where one can get intimate too quickly looking for the thrill of romance and being strongly sexed and attracted to lose or unreliable people. It can generate reproductive problems. As it moves away from the early degrees of Aries out of Ketu’s nakshatra of Ashwini (Aries 0-13.20), it does get better and develops a sense of fiery play and becomes seductive, fun to be with, playful, adventurous, spontaneous, and generous and a bit passionate and very creative.

Venus will first be in the constellation of Ashwini (Aries 0-13.20) May 10-21. Prash Trivedi reminds us that Ashwini is known in modern astronomy as Alpha-Ariettas and Beta-Ariettas near the bright star of Andromeda between May 10-21st. The symbol for Ashwini is a horse’s head representing a dauntless spirit of adventure and a headstrong 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 Ashwini 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 the moon’s energy from Shravana (Capricorn 10-23.20) and Mars is the constellation of Purva Ashadha, which is owned by Venus. This transit can 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 will conjunct Uranus during this transit on May 18-19th in Aries. 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.

Venus moves into the constellation of Bharani (Aries 13.20-26.40) May 21-June 1st 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.

So, the party is over for Venus who enjoyed a nice “staycation” in Pisces where the height of its relationship skills and artistic expression were able to come out.

Libra rising will have more of the sudden and quick relationship energy that we have discussed above with a 7th house transit of the ascendant 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 eleventh house transit and women’s groups. Scorpio and Virgo and Cancer rising, and moons could have the most difficult with this transit as they are 6th, 8th, and 10th from the ascendant.
