Venus, planet of love and luxury is in Uttara Ashada between February 9th and 20th 2024, the nakshatra that spans the signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn.
Uttara’s nature is elegant, learned 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, which has an association with Ganesha, the devata of success and removing obstacles. Use your tact and diplomatic qualities to smooth your path forwards, backed up with powerful intent in the form of meditation and 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, or else you find an attraction at work with someone on the same path.
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 don’t have to seek problems out, and can accept a gift or opportunity that comes smoothly.
An element of fate may be at work, where people and situations align with your needs, and you reap the rewards of efforts already set in motion. This transit begins with the New Moon on February 9th, and favours a fresh cycle of socializing, or showcasing a new look or artistic direction.
