VENUS IN SCORPIO OCTOBER 27 –Nov. 21, 2019
Venus moves into Scorpio on Oct. 27th and it is an unafflicted transit except for a a week or so by Jupiter until Jupiter goes into Sagittarius on Nov 4th . Still this creates a Saraswati yoga for some rising signs and this yoga is created when Venus, Jupiter and Mercury are in a Kendra (1, 4, 7, 10) or a Trikona (5, 9th house). That means Scorpio, Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer and Leo rising will benefit from it.
Saraswati is the goddess of learning and knowledge and gives great wisdom and intelligence, great writing ability, and greatness with poetry and mathematics and knowledge of sacred texts and creates honor and fame and wealth. Dustin Hoffman was born with one in his natal chart and if you have one in your natal chart than the blessings of Saraswati are kindled in transit.
Venus in Scorpio will be passionate but also capable of being independent and has a lot of adolescent energy and love of adventure, artistic creativity and public speaking. It is a 2nd house transit for Libras which will focus it on family and fiances and a 7th house transit for Taurus which could bring up a new relationship.
Scorpio is an intense sign of the zodiac and has many blind spots and Venus in Scorpio may experience some. Blind spots for Scorpios include having trouble making changes around work home an relationship as a fixed sign and being too often filled with emotional upheavals and being too manipulative to avoid emotional upheaval and this leads to being controlling. Scorpion must learn how to open their hearts without ambition or fear or control!
Ketu is the primary ruler of Scorpio which is the natural house of transformations, mistakes, loss of consciousness and past karma. Each planet in the 8th house shows our unawareness and past mistakes so it represents core blind spots in our life that our soul has. It is like a factory error in our life that we are blind to when we buy it. Planet placed in Scorpio naturally get connected to past lives and core level blind spot.
Scorpio teaches us that our original mistake is the identification with the body as the self when it is so much more as Ketu and the 8th house remind us of our mystical inner Divinity and sometimes we are prompted to do this by going through 8th house challenges like divorce, acute illness and litigation to remember that life is so much bigger and so we can be prompted to discover God.
Venus enters the constellation of Anuradha (Scorpio 3.20-16.40) Oct 31-Nov. 10th Prash Trivedi reminds us that the constellation of Anuradha is connected to Mitra, the God of Light and this transit can awaken ones’ connection to the Divine. This can really enliven and awaken spiritual life. If you were born November 19 – December 2nd and have your Sun here, you may have a strong spiritual inclination, which will be enlivened by this transit. Anuradha signifies good luck to those who have been following dharmic paths and are true devotees of the God. It is connected to networking, friendship and goodwill and partnership.
Saturn’s ownership of this constellation can bring great teachings of cosmic truths if you can lean to move to the highest level of knowledge of responsibility for the planet and self-realization. Jupiter’s stay in Anuradha supports the expansion of spiritual energy and helps us to go deeply into our real self and to spend more time in meditation and spiritual pursuits.
Venus moves into the constellation of Jyestha (Scorpio 16.41-29.59) Nov. 10-21st . Jyestha is a rather sexual constellation connect to Indra who was punished for his sexual escapades and dalliances by being cursed with having a 1000 vaginas put on him. Venus is Jyestha will bring out Venus’s sexual nature and may become overindulgent and think that sex is the penultimate experience in life and this could lead to unwise relationships and unhappy situations so be sure to tread carefully if you are tempted to connect with someone for fun at a party.
