Venus, planet of love and luxury, is in Punarvasu from July 29th, the nakshatra spanning the zodiacal signs of Gemini and Cancer.
Punarvasu’s Shakti, or unique gift, is ‘the power to acquire wealth’ which fits well with Venus’s luxury-loving nature and promises material and emotional abundance. This nakshatra’s symbol of a Quiver of Arrows also brings renewal of a relationship, where your love-life gets a new lease of life and sees you bonding with someone on a closer level than before.
Aim your bow towards a distant romantic target, be aspiring and expect more from your partner – you may take on the role of a provider and protector, or else attract this quality from the outside. The Arrow motif makes you far-seeing and thoughtful, where you share a philosophic outlook or construct your own romantic code based on generosity and freedom.
Punarvasu is ruled by Aditi, a goddess associated with the boundless, so your affections have a limitless quality and the prospect of bonding over a spiritual rapport. Your design or artwork also finds new stimulation, or else working alongside a sympathetic collaborator injects energy into a creative project that had gone cold.
Combining your ideas is an excellent use of this transit. Venus receives the close influence of sober Saturn, planet of fate, up to August 1st, which sees you balancing a work commitment with your love life.
You may be conducting a long-distance affair with a partner in another city or country, or meet someone on your travels while keeping an attachment to your home. This is a good window to lay down ground rules for relating, and the effort you put in makes people know your intent is serious.
