Venus, planet of relationship, is in Mrigashira, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Taurus and Gemini from May 23rd to June 3rd 2021.
This asterism is ruled by the Moon, the fastest moving star, which represents your inner life and ever-changing mood, so your affections or those of your partner may be fickle and ever-changing.
In myth, Mrigashira’s symbol the Deer is depicted being pursued across the skies by Brahma the Creator, and here you are driven by desire and the thrill of the chase. Even with Venus in this nakshatra’s strong and stable earthy Taurus portion, your romantic life has a restless streak and you pursue goals for their own sake without thinking your overall direction through.
You may feel ‘the grass is greener’ and be reluctant to commit when there is the possibility of meeting someone new, or bigger promise around the corner. Or you may seek a romantic conquest and simply love to flirt, but the sense of the hunt is difficult to satisfy – and you also unconsciously invite others to chase after you.
Mrigashira’s nature is soft and timid, like a deer, and your intentions may easily be misunderstood, so be careful of giving mixed signals. Yet its Shakti, or special power, is to ‘Give Fulfilment’, so there is success and satisfaction to be found when you settle down and love the one you are with.
This applies to your work life and creativity too, where you start a job or artistic project with a goal in mind, only for your focus to wane when other ideas arise. Venus moves tightly together with Mercury retrograde from May 29th, which may bring an old face back into your life and give you a romantic choice to make.
