Venus, planet of love and luxury is in Uttara Ashada between January 25th to February 5th, the nakshatra that spans the signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn.
Uttara’s nature is intelligent and diplomatic, with the promise of popularity and many friends, and it is ruled by the Ten Vishwadevas, the embodiments of virtue and fine quality. Venus sits comfortably here and gives you a sure touch in company, with the ability to reach out to different people on your way to your ambitions.
This asterism is also symbolized by an elephant’s Tusk, showing penetration and insight into a situation, which has an association with Ganesha, the devata of success and removing obstacles. You can use your tact and diplomatic qualities to smooth your path forwards, backed up with powerful mantra-chanting. You are an effective negotiator and create peace and harmony, while this transit also promises victory in love and close relations.
A rapport with an influential person may help you now, or else you find an attraction at work with someone on the same path as you. Uttara is of the Kshatriya, or warrior caste and its Shakti, or unique gift, for Unchallenged Victory finds a political cause or campaign meeting with success, almost without having to fight a battle. You may feel an element of fate here, where an ambition or relationship seems meant for you, and you reap the rewards of efforts made in the past.
This applies especially since this transit coincides with Mercury retrograde after January 30th, which may see somebody from the past returning into your life. Venus gives you the quality to deal with this experience with style, but think carefully before committing to an offer or invitation.
