Venus, planet of love and luxury, is in Punarvasu from June 14th to 25th, the nakshatra spanning the zodiacal signs of Gemini and Cancer.
Punarvasu’s Shakti, or unique gift, is ‘the power to acquire wealth’ which makes an excellent fit with Venus’s luxury-loving nature and brings the promise of material and emotional abundance. This nakshatra’s symbol of a Quiver of Arrows, brings renewal of a relationship, and a situation where you take on the role of a provider and protector.
Aim your bow towards a distant romantic target, be ambitious and expect more from your partner. The arrow motif also makes you far-seeing and thoughtful where you share a bond with someone on a philosophic level or construct your own romantic code based on generosity and freedom.
Punarvasu is ruled by Aditi, a goddess associated with the boundless, so there is a limitless quality to your affections and the prospect of bonding over a shared spiritual rapport. Your design or artwork may find new stimulation, or working alongside a collaborator injects energy into a creative project that had gone cold.
A relationship that has lost its way gets a new lease of life, which can see the return of an old face, or reunite you with an ex on a stronger level than before – particularly since this transit coincides with Mercury retrograde until June 22nd.
You may be conducting a long-distance affair with a partner in another place, or meet someone on your travels, though you always keep an attachment to your home.
Venus receives the direct influence of sober Saturn through this whole phase, so some extra effort may be required in your relationship, or work commitments see you and your partner spending time apart before having your reunion.
