Venus, the planet of love and relationship, is in Krittika, the nakshatra that crosses the zodiacal signs of Aries and Taurus, from May 16th to 27th 2024.

Krittika’s symbol of a Flame or Razor gives your affections fire and passion, and its ruling deity, Agni, the embodiment of sacred fire, gives you a headstrong romantic quality.

Venus has the capacity to cut away attachment when a relationship needs change, so you vary extremes of desire and detachment, and come out ahead even when you make sweeping relationship changes. This razor-like discrimination is useful, but some people may still find you unpredictable.

Mercury is with diplomatic Venus in Aries up to May 19th, and you can channel your passion into a campaign for a political or social cause, or speak up for a personal belief. You are also charming and persuasive, and somebody may take a shine to your thinking.

The Shakti, or special power, of this asterism, ‘To Burn’, for Venus can mean being deeply in love or encountering jealousy and uncomfortable emotions that you need to work through. In any case, a fiery scene or blow-up clears the air before you move on feeling lighter and freer.

Your affections are impulsive and possibly a little self-centred, and though you are open and friendly, it’s good to stay aware of others’ needs. Krittika’s flame is linked with inner fire which is associated with digestion and cooking, where Venus likes to entertain and show off culinary skills.

The Taurus portion of this nakshatra after May 19th especially sees you in an indulgent mood, but be careful of rich food and a tendency to overdo it.
