Venus, planet of art and relationship, is in Shravana from February 20th to March 1st 2024, the nakshatra within the zodiacal sign of Capricorn.
The Shakti, or unique gift, of this asterism is ‘Making Connection’, and Venus here sees you bonding with a partner over a shared love of the arts, either in a personal affair or creative collaboration. You can find a romance for the long term, or simply start a new and enduring new chapter in your current relationship.
Shravana associates with high learning and spiritual knowledge through its rulership by Vishnu the Preserver, and Shravana itself is known for its power to give fame.
This asterism’s symbol of the Ear favours all kinds of oral traditions, where you use your expressive skills and powers of memory, at the same time as tuning out gossip and romantic rumours. You are charming and eloquent, and have the ability to speak sweetly to anyone you wish to impress – finding the right words is a great gift.
You can also get closer to somebody by being a good listener. Draw on your teaching, writing and presenting skills, plus your esoteric knowledge steps up a level, especially in respect to focused mantra-chanting.
Venus’s current conjunction with Mars gives you a more dynamic way of relating, where you actively seek company, and feel an almost competitive urge to break the ice with a new face.
In Shravana, you would usually plan your romantic pursuit carefully, but the first four days of this transit especially sees you acting on impulse and driven by a strong chemistry. The full Moon of February 24th brings your pursuit to a highpoint.
