Venus, planet of love and values, is in Dhanishtha from March 24th to April 6th 2022, the nakshatra spanning Capricorn and Aquarius.
Dhanishtha’s name translates to goodwill and abundance, and its Shakti, or special power, is ‘To Create Wealth and Fame’. Influential circles open up for you, which may involve trading, buying or enjoying costly and luxurious accessories.
This asterism’s affairs focus on music, rhythm in particular, as represented by its symbol the Drum, and Venus as planet of the arts has a special affinity here. As well as great creative work, your self- expression brings fun and fulfilment, and puts meaning into your life.
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 other people inspiration to do the same and friends like being around your energy – you excel in any activity which requires a rhythm or pulse.
A shared love of music and dance is the common ground for a new romantic interest, and a relationship may also bring material abundance. This asterism is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the elemental deities of energy and light in Vedic mythology, which are also said to be givers of wealth and security.
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. The early part of this transit especially finds you with a realistic attitude in your relationships, and resolving your differences with one person may make more sense than looking around elsewhere.
Venus pulls away slowly from its face-off with dynamic Mars, and by April 1st a sense of romantic competition recedes into the past.
