Venus, planet of love and art, is in Uttara Bhadrapada, within the sign of Pisces, from March 19th to 30th.
This nakshatra’s name literally means ‘beautiful left foot’ and is known as a benevolent and spiritual zone whose symbol is the back legs of a bed. Venus here gives you an imaginative and expressive side as befits its exalted sign status in Pisces, and you find great sensitivity and empathy in relationship.
Exercise your powers of belief, where showing faith in someone has a profound transformative effect, and you can set positive goals and a message for them to aspire to.
This nakshatra is ruled by Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the deep, which shows you getting into profound sharing and immersion in the waters of your meditation – this deity is often identified with the kundalini ‘serpent’ energy at the base of the spine, which is raised during intense yoga practice.
You can develop your powers of intuition and insight, and may uncannily detect your partner’s thoughts and feelings. Uttara’s Shakti, or special power, is for ‘Bringing Rain’ in the sense of stimulating new ideas and growth, which links to abundance and luxury – issues close to Venus’s heart.
You have a flair for creativity and design, and are happy to spend the extra if it means working with the finest quality materials. Subtle and insightful, you are also slow to anger, and know how to sweeten your message and put a proposition successfully.
Your laid-back style may be taken for laziness or indifference, but tact and diplomacy resolves romantic turbulence and you get the credit and as peace-maker.
Venus is in this nakshatra with the life-giving Sun, which attracts large personalities into your world – make sure your qualities are appreciated and your contribution to a creative plan fully noted.
