November 16 - December 10, 2020
In the midst of all the chaos caused by the pandemic and the crazy politics, maybe it is time to take a deep breath or even better, a warm bath. It’s time to relax. Unplug your computer, turn off your phone, and close your eyes. The answer to chaos is silence.
An astrological answer to chaos might look something like Venus in Libra. Libra is the sign that symbolizes love, affection, relationships, partnerships, harmony, balance, aesthetics, beauty, art, music and all things that bring pleasure and enjoyment. Since Venus happens to own the sign of Libra, these qualities will increase and be easier to access during this period. More importantly, Venus in Libra will give a boost to any area of life that Libra signifies in your chart. The particular area of life that might improve, will depend on where the sign of Libra is located in your Vedic horoscope.
On the other hand, during Venus’ transit of Libra, it will be receiving the aspects of transiting Mars and Saturn. So instead of producing an uninhibited stream of all of the pleasant qualities mentioned above, Venus’ time in Libra will be punctuated with starts and stops. That means that some of the areas of life that may improve, may also give that improvement after a delay or having to deal with obstacles or pressures.
But we’re going to take our improvements any way we can get them. Who cares if you have to be patient and work a little bit to make things better, as long as they get better in some way.
Anyway, the following predictions are only for the Venus in Libra transit period from November 16 – December 10, 2020.
Be sure to read the Sun-sign birth date ranges carefully, because we use a sidereal zodiac in Vedic astrology. We also look at transits of planets from various lagnas (focal points). Since I can’t see your individual chart when I am writing this, I have to rely on your Sun sign, which we call the Surya lagna. If you are more knowledgeable about your Vedic chart, and if you know the signs occupied by your Moon, ascendant, and arudha lagna, then you can read the predictions given for those signs as well. I know it seems strange that you can actually read the predictions for as many as four signs, but each can give a different perspective on your experience.
Vedic Sun Signs
Apr 14 - May 14 (Aries) Relationships take center stage during this period. You might find that people around you are more loving, affectionate, and appreciative, mixed with being occasionally annoying. This is a likely time for romance, if you can be patient, and it is also good for any type of partnership. This period is also good for creative activities.
May 15 - Jun 14 (Taurus) During this period, you might do something positive for your health, or your health could improve in some way. But you need to stay on your routines in order to get the benefit. This would be a great time to visit your local spa or to do some sort of therapeutic activity that is pleasurable, like getting a massage or a facial. You might also find that your work is more enjoyable and productive now.
Jun 15 - Jul 15 (Gemini) If you have children, then this is a good time for them and your experience with them, if you can be patient and put up with occasional challenges. Otherwise, this is a great time for romance, fun, games, creative projects and education. In all these areas you will need to work a little to enjoy the positive effects.
Jul 16 - Aug 16 (Cancer) This is a great time for any type of home beautification projects or home repairs. It is also good for purchasing real estate and vehicles. You might also feel happier or more emotionally upbeat during this period
Aug 17 - Sep 16 (Leo) During this period, you might find yourself drawn to going on small outings or excursions that are fun or enjoyable. But now your communication style with other people will become more charming and warm. This is also a good time for getting involved in creative projects.
Sep 17 - Oct 16 (Virgo) Venus is in your second house, so you might have a desire to spend your money on something that is pleasurable or even a little self-indulgent. This could be something for your home, for travel, clothing, or just going out to a nice restaurant. It is also a time when finances in general should go well.
Oct 17 - Nov 15 (Libra) Venus’ transit in Libra improves and promotes everything to do with relationships and style. But for you, it also can help your health, and your general sense of confidence as long as you can be patient, and stay on your diet and exercise routines. This would be a great time for any type of personal transformation activity. For example, it’s a great time for yoga, pancha karma, or any type of body work that has a pleasurable quality.
Nov 16 - Dec 15 (Scorpio) During this period Venus is transiting through your twelfth house. Normally this would be a good time for travel. The aspects of Saturn and Mars, as well as the pandemic, could scale that down a few notches, or even make travel impossible. However, if you do happen to travel, there might be a tendency to splurge a bit. On the other hand, for most people, this period will draw you in the spiritual direction, producing a more introspective inclination. Meditation may be more pleasant and expansive, so this can also be a good time to do a retreat. The point is that this period may give you the tendency to spend money, so enjoy it, but don’t overdo it.
Dec 16 - Jan 13 (Sagittarius) This might be a period when, as long as you are patient, things seem to go your way. Venus is in your eleventh house, the house that is related to fulfilling desires. That might make it possible to finish projects, and to get what you desire. It is also the house of friends. This period could produce more social activity or simply more enjoyable interactions with friends or groups. It might also a good period for finances.
Jan 14 - Feb 12 (Capricorn) Venus is transiting your tenth house, the house of career. So you will probably find that your work is goes well during this time. If you have a boss, then he/she will be more pleasant. And you will enjoy what you are doing at work, including your interaction with co-workers. If you are not currently employed, and if you want a job, then this is a great period to get out there and look for one, because the gods are on your side now.
Feb 13 - Mar 13 (Aquarius) During this period, Venus is transiting in your ninth house. In a normal world without a pandemic, this transit would promote travel. If you happen to travel, you might splurge a bit in the process. The ninth house is also the house of education, so if you are involved in any type of knowledge-gaining activities, you will find them particularly interesting and enjoyable now. This is also a great time for connecting with your father, with your teachers, or with your guru.
Mar 14 - Apr 13 (Pisces) Venus is passing through your eighth house. If you are patient and work hard, this period could enhance finances in some way, especially if you have any sources of finance that are not related to a paycheck. For example, money that comes from a contract, partnership, insurance, inheritance, investment interest, or other outside sources, could be more of a possibility now. This is also a good time for making constructive changes in your work or career. You spouse or partner could also find this period to be good for finances, but he/she might also tend to spend money now.
