Astrology forecast (June 8-July 4): Venus transits Cancer

Venus, also known as “Shukra,” is personified as a teacher and a lover. When strong in the birth chart of a person, it gives affluence, pleasures, luxury, beauty, harmony, creativity, love, clarity, balance and sensuality. It also indicates inclination towards the fine arts, performing arts, healing arts, fashion, photography, architecture, romance and all things beautiful.

When Venus is weak in a person’s chart it can cause issues with the kidneys, pancreas and reproductive organs, and issues relative to the house Venus rules in that person’s birth chart.

Venus represents wife in a man’s chart. Depending on its strength, Venus can provide one with a happy married life. When Venus is weak in a man’s chart it can indicate suffering for his wife. With this awareness we can prescribe the two-fold planetary remedies to strengthen Venus (if Venus is a functional benefic (good) planet) or to propitiate or honor Venus (if it is a functional malefic (bad) planet) for more success in relationships and marriage.

We all know that in today’s day in age when one gets engaged, the tradition is to receive a diamond ring. However, did you know that Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign women should not be wearing a diamond gemstone according to the Systems’ Approach to Vedic Astrology?

For the Taurus-born person, the sign of Libra (ruled by Venus) falls in the inauspicious sixth house of conflicts, health issues, financial issues, debts, disputes, bankruptcy, fire, theft, cheating, false allegations and divorce. Wearing a Venus gemstone like a diamond can strengthen these negative influences in the Taurus horoscope.

For the Scorpio-born person, the sign of Libra (ruled by Venus) falls in the inauspicious twelfth house of losses, expenses, separations, isolations, depression and hospitalization. Wearing a Venus gemstone like a diamond can strengthen these negative influences in the Scorpio horoscope.

For the Pisces-born person, the sign of Libra (ruled by Venus) falls in the inauspicious eighth house of vulnerability, transformations, setbacks, obstacles, delays, disappointments, and even death like experiences. Wearing a Venus gemstone like a diamond can strengthen these negative influences in the Pisces horoscope.

Every one of us can nurture and nourish our Venus by taking time each week (particularly on Fridays) to treat ourselves to a play, movie, concert or good food.

A few other remedies for honoring Venus include listening to chants for Lakshmi, helping women who are like sisters, spending time beautifying one’s home (I suggest buying yourself roses on Fridays), and pampering oneself. (Think extra “me” time!) With these simple remedies we can all feel a little more like the goddess we are.
