Mars and Venus Parivartana

Mars and Venus Parivartana

There will be a Parivartana Yoga (mutual exchange) between Venus and Mars from November 29th to December 20th.  Parivartana Yoga is a combination that occurs when two planets exchange signs.  It’s like house swapping. For  example,  if I am staying in your house, while at the same time, you are staying in my house,  then we have a unique relationship.  Even if we aren’t naturally friends, we will behave like friends as long as we are occupying each other’s house. 

Like that, Venus and Mars, during this period, will blend  their  energies in a benign and benevolent way, producing a period that is prone to enthusiasm, passion, and enjoyment.  Since these are the two planets of  sexual energy, we can throw a pinch of romantic attraction into the mixture as well. 

Besides producing a generally enthusiastic quality, this yoga will play itself out in each person’s horoscope, blending the qualities of the two astrological houses that are occupied by transiting Venus and Mars.  Here is a brief hint at how these two planets could affect you during the period between November 29 – December 20, 2017.

The results, given below, are given according to your Vedic Sun sign.  Remember to check the dates for your Sun Sign, since they are different from those of Western astrology.  If you are a student of Jyotish or if you know your ascendant, Moon sign, or Arudha lagna sign, then you can read the results for those signs as well.


Vedic Sun Signs

Apr 14 - May 14  (Aries)   Mars in your seventh house and Venus in your eighth house could intensify relationships.  It is an influence of attraction and sexual energy, but it is also a combination that can produce transformation, change, and  metamorphosis within your relationships.  Hopefully you will stay on the positive side of that energy by choosing empowering relationship experiences.

May 15 - Jun 14 (Taurus).    Mars in your sixth house and Venus in your seventh house may bring a need for distance and space  in partnerships.  For example, this is a good time for some space  in your romantic relationship.  You don't need to be in a crisis to benefit from some time apart. Maybe your partner (or  friend) just needs a little alone time.  This also creates a transiting version of Adi Yoga, a good combination for finances, being in charge and taking care of business, so this could be a very productive period as well.

Jun 15 - Jul 15 (Gemini)    This transit links your fifth house and your sixth house, increasing mental acuity and analytical tendencies.  It is a problem solving period.  If you have children, this is a good time to not let them draw you into arguments.

Jul 16 - Aug 16 (Cancer)   This period is very good for education, if you happen to be a student.  If not, it is a great period for beautifying your environment, whether that is your home, apartment, or even the room you sleep or work in.  It is a good period for anything related to real estate as well.  To top it off, it supports finances and ambitious pursuits.

Aug 17 - Sep 16  (Leo)  Venus and Mars can encourage you to spruce up your  home.  This is a good time for any activities related to real estate.  It is also a good  time for travel.  If you are a student, you will do well now.

Sep 17 - Oct 16  (Virgo)  This is an excellent time for finances.  It is supportive to your career, business projects, and any ambitious projects you have going.  It is also a good time for travel.

Oct 17 - Nov 15 (Libra)  During this period, you could begin something new.  This is a good time for partnership and for romantic encounters.  It is good for finances, but you might also feel like spending your  money.

Nov 16- Dec 15 (Scorpio)  Venus and Mars are activating your first house and your twelfth house.  This is a good time for turning inward, but doing it in a physical way.  Yoga, Tai Chi, walking or hiking are all ways to use your  physical body as a vehicle for  meditation.  This period also favors travel.  It can bring attractions or romance as well.

Dec 16 - Jan 13 (Sagittarius)  This is a good time to do something inward, but to do it in a group. It would be better if it is also physical.  Yoga, Tai Chi, walking or hiking are all things you can do with a group.  It is also a good time for travel, especially with friends or groups.   This period is good for money, educational activities, and can also help you to finish projects.

Jan 14 - Feb 12 (Capricorn)   Mars and Venus are covering your tenth and eleventh houses, promoting your work and your ability to achieve.  During this period, you might work with teams or groups.  This is a good time for finances.  It could promote working at home, and it is good for any projects related to homes or houses.

Feb 13 - Mar 13 (Aquarius)  During this period, you will do well in your work or career.  The period promotes a greater sense of purpose.  It creates a temporary Karma Dharma Yoga, a combination that makes you feel like you want to do work that makes a contribution or that is in line with your dharma.  You might feel like traveling as well.

Mar 14 - Apr 13 (Pisces)     Mars and Venus are transiting your eighth and ninth houses. This period supports financial matters.  It could promote travel, but if you do travel, it can also get you to change your travel plans in some way.   It is also a good time for educational activities either as a student or a teacher.  This period also promotes transformational work, such as body work or yoga.
