Venus, planet of relating and luxuries, enters the nakshatra of Hasta in the sign of Virgo from October 31st to November 11th 2020.
This nakshatra is symbolised by the Hand and is known for seizing and taking, and all activities associated with sleight of hand. Now is a good time for crafts and handiwork, things which have an artistic and Venusian flavour, and it’s good to show off your creative touch and prove what you can do.
You have a sense of humour and fun too and like anyone who makes you laugh and doesn’t take life too seriously. Though achieving your goals may come through applied effort and repetition, Hasta’s Shakti or unique power, is for Manifestation, so you can literally put into your hands that which you dream or desire. This asterism is ruled by Savitri, which is the Sun, so there is also a sense of illumination where you discover something new about yourself and the person you are with.
You may encounter someone who is closed or guarded in their affections, or you yourself are testing the waters in a situation before declaring your hand. Don’t over-think your style of relating or play games – it’s better to be open and transparent even when you suspect you are not getting the same in return. Venus likes to be on good terms with everyone so consider if the time has come to make peace and shake hands after a disagreement.
You may be more in the mood to talk and relate on a mental level than dive into a passionate affair, but Venus is also influenced by Mars, planet of action, throughout this transit. This puts you in the mood to take positive steps and break the ice with a new face, or you may be surprised when somebody takes the initiative to get next to you.
