EYE ON THE SKY:
VENUS IN TAURUS: JUNE 18-JULY 13
VENUS CONJUNCT RAHU JUNE 13-19TH
Venus will be very strong in the sky in Taurus for a month and only afflicted by only Rahu as it leave Aries June 16-19th and squared by Saturn into Saturday, June 18th. Overall, once we get through the weekend, it should smoother sailing for comfort and Taurus can give us a relief from the storms of emotions that the retrograde Saturn has been stirring up.
If you are Taurus or Libra rising or have a strong Venus in your chart, it is a good time for feeling expansive, refined, pleasant, comfortable, kind, generous, artistic, strong in relationship skills.
Taurus brings the blessings of Krishna and Shiva and is one of the more material signs of abundance. This transit with Venus in its own sign creates a Malavya Yoga for Taurus rising and indicates the highest manifestation of Venus’s qualities so it is a good time to enjoy good food, the arts, and home while pursuing partnerships and romance. Finances can be good depending on what cycle you are running as transits are 20% of impact with dashas being 80%. It is a time to feel at home and to move forward solidly in your life with lots of Grace.
Libra rising will experience an eighth house transit of Venus in its own sign and this is a time for personal transformation and unexpected money coming from lotteries, insurance or other unexpected sources. Meditation and spiritual experience could be powerful and so a good time to take a spiritual retreat and withdraw from the senses.
VENUS CONJUNCT RAHU:
Venus, the planet of luxury, beauty and sensual pleasure, is friends with Rahu, the planet of desire. They are good friends and their conjunction into Friday, June 16th in the mean node system and are closely connected within 3 degrees from June 13-19th. This can increase sensual desire for sweets, sexual activity, shopping or going on a buying spree. The two planets in the mean node system are in Kritika nakshatra where cutting and critical talk can spoil relationship energy.
Be aware of this conjunction because the tendency may be to over-eat too many sweets or not be satisfied by your partner–no matter how often they are there. It can also create overspending if you feel a lack from not getting enough sensual attention. Good balance and solution is to schedule a massage if Venus is not feeling complete rather than indulging in excessive shopping or eating too much chocolate. Better, yet, find other ways to love yourself rather than looking for it outside of yourself.
Mercury and Venus in Taurus is a bright spot this month and we always worry about the Sun in Ardra Nakshatra, the place of storms and tears, June 22-July 6th and Mars moving into the Gandanta, or the end of Pisces where deep emotional and spiritual transformation wants to happen June 21-26th.
