Venus, planet of love and luxury, enters Shatabhishak from January 27th to February 7th, the nakshatra within the sign of Aquarius.
Shatabhishak’s name translates to ‘a hundred physicians’ and its Shakti, or special power, for Healing may find you involved in medicine from a professional standpoint, or else a special person’s company has a positive and therapeutic effect.
This nakshatra’s reputation for seeking solitude, along with its strong mystical quality, may see you attracted to an otherworldly type, or someone who shares your interest in spirituality and divination.
Venus sees you balancing your desire to reflect on bigger questions with an urge to get out and connect more – make sure you don’t become so detached and inward-looking that lose touch with your closest circle.
This asterism also has a reputation for direct speech, so be careful of speaking out of turn or saying the wrong thing to someone you want to impress. Shatabhishak’s ruler, Varuna, God of the Oceans, brings you into contact with water, and you have the prospect of meeting somebody on long-distance travel overseas.
Immersion in the inner pool of meditation also allows you to visualize your ideal partner and draw them towards you by sympathetic attraction. You show a talent for healing arts, particularly diet or massage, but in any case something with a sensual, Venusian quality, using the finest materials.
You can heal your heart and find love and understanding when you have someone on your level who truly understands. Venus moving alongside Saturn, planet of boundaries and maturity, also sees you setting out ground rules for relating – as long as you don’t impose too strict a regime.
Spell your message out clearly, with no room for misunderstanding, and your relationship endures and moves on to another level.
