Venus, planet of art, luxury and relationship, is in Pushya in the sign of Cancer from August 9th until 20th 2022.
Pushya’s symbol of an Udder gives you maternal-type affections and lends Venus a romantic generosity, where you support your partner and provide security. Everyone wants to feel safe in a relationship and your sense of protection is strong now, either giving, receiving or ideally sharing some special attention.
The Shakti, or unique gift, of this nakshatra is ‘the power to create spiritual energy’, so together you achieve a soul bond and rapport, over and above that which you find on your own. Spiritual generosity singles out your affections and this is a fortunate and life-sustaining asterism for most life purposes, where your ideas are taken up at a higher level. You can find the love and support you seek.
Somebody close to you may need emotional help, or else you are separated for a time through a work or travel commitment. Still, you remain giving and caring, and your sympathetic quality plays up your personal magnetism, especially when a friend needs to talk.
You may even find a gift as a counsellor or therapist at this time. Pushya’s presiding deity, Brihaspati, emphasizes its philosophical and questing side, so you bond with a kindred spirit over a shared love of thought and higher learning.
Raise the tone in your relationship and you get the same attitudes in return. Venus also receives the influence of generous Jupiter through this whole transit, reaching maximum strength on August 18th, when you give freedom and have an innocent belief in fair play in love.
This day is excellent for a celebration and its positive energy may see your starry expectations actually being met.
