Venus, planet of relationship and values, enters Jyeshta from Nov 24th to December 5th, the last nakshatra in the zodiacal sign of Scorpio.
Jyeshta is ‘The Elder’, and its ruling devata is Indra, King of the Gods, so your love life centres on taking charge around your partner and a larger group of people. You are a mature voice in a romantic situation and this is a great opportunity to get beneath the surface, at a time when relations are intense and emotional.
You also have an innate sense of fairness and expect the same in return when you dare to give your partner trust and freedom. Jyeshta’s symbol is a Talisman or Umbrella so there’s a sense of protecting those closest to you, and also the relationship itself.
Venus gives you a sweet way of expressing yourself so you may speak up on behalf of a cause or look into a fall-back emotional position that provides security. This asterism is associated with Alakshmi, the elder sister of Lakshmi Devi, who signifies privation or hardship, so making new business relationships or giving somebody an opportunity creates goodwill.
Decide what you value most, materially and romantically, and stick with it. Yet Jyeshta’s Shakti, or special power, is also for Courage in Battle, so you can press an argument that has lain beneath the surface and tackle an uncomfortable subject with great tact.
Venus is in an intimate sign-exchange with dynamic Mars through this transit, which sees you driven by desire and unable simply to let a love affair go without taking it to another level. You may attempt a romantic conquest, but in any case, it’s best to stay active with your partner, or channel your energy into creativity.
Sitting back and enjoying a friendly rapport is likely to leave you wanting more.
