Venus, planet of love and art, is in the Gandanta zone between zodiacal signs and nakshatras from October 27th to November 2nd 2021.
Gandanta translates to ‘knot-end’ where the junction of zodiacal signs and lunar asterisms meet, creating a mini-chasm and here, an unstable romantic scenario. This crossover occurs at the cusps of fire and water signs, which makes a turbulent passage through these degrees.
Jyeshtha-Mula is a particularly sharp contrast, where the intensity of Scorpio gives way to the open and adventurous Sagittarius, and these two uncompromising nakshatras bump against each other. In Jyeshtha, The Elder, your focus is on providing protection and taking charge, but Mula is more detached and cerebral.
Venus moves from an intense and secretive to a naïve and demonstrative, if rather otherworldly style, and you are not sure which side you come down on. This may see you behaving out of character in a relationship, or having an infatuation with somebody outside your usual type.
A lover or friend may also be acting oddly and you feel tested, but unable to read the situation. Take it easy: if you sense a strange vibe from your partner, don’t feel under pressure to adapt immediately, but simply take stock.
You may be open and less guarded now, and also receive this quality from people close to you, but don’t come with pre-planned expectations. Somebody has grown used to your empathy and insight, and switching to a more upbeat and outgoing mode may take a little explaining.
It is nice to indulge your spiritual and detached side in the company of someone who understands. Your creative work also moves in a new direction, where you go from a personal artistic statement to broader and more philosophical themes.
