Venus, planet of relating and luxuries, is in the nakshatra of Hasta in the sign of Virgo from Oct 2 to Oct 13 2022.
This nakshatra is symbolised by the Hand and is known for seizing and taking, and all activities associated with handicraft. You may encounter people who are open-handed in their affections, or you yourself are testing the waters in a situation before declaring your position.
Don’t over-think your style of relating or play romantic games – it’s better to be transparent even if you suspect you are not getting the same in return. Venus likes to be on good terms with everyone so perhaps the time has come to make peace and shake hands after a disagreement.
This is a good time for crafts and handiwork, things which have an artistic and Venusian flavour, so take the chance to show off your creative touch and prove what you can do.
Though achieving your goals may come through applied effort and repetition, Hasta’s Shakti or unique power, is for Manifestation, in love and work, so you can literally put into your hands that which you dream or desire.
Think big in whatever business you are in and you can achieve great things. This transit coincides with Mercury, planet of the mind, also being in Virgo, where it gives Venus extra strength and may see you having a meeting of minds.
Respond to somebody returning into your life and you are in a good place to make a decision about your relationship going forwards. Plus, benevolent Jupiter’s influence through this whole period gives you a generous and supportive attitude to those you are close to, and you can easily see past any temporary tensions and misunderstanding.
