Venus, planet of love and values, is in Dhanishtha from January 17th to January 27th 2023, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius.
Dhanishtha’s name translates to goodwill and abundance, and its Shakti, or special power, ‘To Create Wealth and Fame’ gives you the promise of entering influential circles. You may enjoy trading, buying or enjoying costly and luxurious accessories, plus this asterism focuses on music, rhythm in particular, as represented by its symbol the Drum.
Venus, planet of the arts, has a special affinity here, and as well as great creative work, your self-expression brings fun and fulfilment and puts meaning into your life. This asterism is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the Vedic elemental deities of energy and light, which are also givers of wealth and security.
You can be a great patron of the arts and support or donate to a cause for performers, plus you have the ability to pull people and contacts together. Expressing yourself gives others the inspiration to do the same, and friends like being around your vibrant energy – you excel in any skill which requires a rhythm or pulse.
A shared love of music and dance finds you a new romantic interest and a relationship that raises your profile. Yet Dhanishtha is sometimes associated with obstacles in love and you must be patient and see a one-to-one affair through to the end.
Venus also joins Saturn, newly into Aquarius, on January 22nd, and these two planetary friends give you a sharp and timeless dress style, plus commitment and romantic longevity.
You may have to spell your feelings for somebody out rather literally, but once done you forge a serious and enduring bond.
