Venus, the planet of relationships, art and luxury, enters the nakshatra of Pushya within the sign of Cancer on June 25th until July 6th.
Pushya’s motif is the Udder which symbolizes maternal-type affection, and here lends Venus a romantic generosity where you are supporting your partner and providing security. Your affections are emotional supportive, and this is a fortunate and life-sustaining asterism for most purposes, where your ideas are taken up at a higher level.
‘Give in order to receive’ is your mantra. Your partner appreciates when you make them feel secure, and this transit plays up your caring instincts, either in giving, receiving or ideally, a mutual exchange.
Pushya’s Shakti is ‘the power to create spiritual energy’, so there is also the promise of good cooperation and achieving a spiritual bond in love. Perhaps there is a ‘rescue drama’ going on too, where a friend needs help and you step in and try to save them – or else you get a protective gesture in return from the outside.
For sure, showing your sympathetic and understanding nature enhances your attractiveness, especially when someone needs to talk. Pushya gives you an almost naive belief in fair play in love and things working out for the best, though it is such auspicious and positive energy that your expectations are actually met.
Its presiding deity is Brihaspati, which emphasizes Pushya’s spiritual and questing side, so you can bond romantically over a shared love of philosophy and higher learning.
Venus is influenced by strict Saturn through this transit, peaking on June 28th, so you may also be taking responsibility for your partner or putting in extra effort at making your love life work smoothly.
