Venus, planet love and the arts, is in Swati within the sign of Libra from December 5th to 16th, 2023.
Swati is associated with subtle qualities of learning and intellect, justice and forgiveness, and Venus’s powerful position here gives you great promise. You have a natural poise and sense of fairness in relationship, where you reap the rewards of patient attention, bargaining, and give-and-take.
Swati is ruled by Vayu, the Wind God, who is connected with intelligence, knowledge and the voice, and rewards you for studying, teaching and mantra-chanting. This nakshatra’s affinity with Ma Saraswati, devata of wisdom and the arts, boosts your skills and an ambitious and unusual creative effort or collaboration sees you expressing yourself in style.
Venus receives the full gaze of protective Jupiter through this whole transit, where you have an attractive romantic openness and generosity. This influence favours meeting somebody on your travels, though be mindful of a clash of values between you, where you may have to reach a compromise with a partner from a different background.
Give somebody greater freedom and you can arrive at a firm agreement. Swati’s Shakti, or unique gift, ‘To Scatter Like the Wind’, also suggests sowing seeds and connecting with a wide circle of people. Take care that you don’t spread yourself too thinly on the social front, and try to consolidate your new contacts and conquests.
Venus also sits between shadowy Ketu and Mars, planet of action, which together gives you an impulsive and potentially reckless personal style. Keep a sense of balance and try not to become overly-obsessed with any one partner or affair.
