Venus - Venus is Beauty, Desire and Love, Liquid Money. Venus is the main significator of marriage. Venus represents girlfriend or wife for a man. Venus is the significator of all relations, may it be husband-wife or mother-daughter. Philosophically speaking, Venus is also the cause of all the sufferings in our life. How? Because Venus represents our desires and we get pain and suffering in our life only when our desires are not fulfilled..
Transit Time – Venus transits through a sign in about 25 days.
Mahadasha/Antardasha – Person will be most impacted by Venus’s transit if he is also under Venus’s Mahadasha or Antardasha.
Venus’s Dignity – First important thing to see is Venus’s dignity in Birth Chart. If it is well placed in Own/Exalted/Friendly Sign then it shows a strong foundation for Venus and Venus related things.
Transiting Sign – Likewise, we have to be sure of Venus’s dignity during transit. If Venus is transiting through Own/Exalted/Friendly sign then good results are expected.
House Ruler – One of the most important things is to keep in mind as to which house Venus rules with its signs Taurus & Libra signs in your chart. For Aries Ascendant, it will rule 2nd house and 7th house but for Virgo Ascendant, it will rule 2nd house and 9th house. Now, wherever it goes into transits, Venus will bring the energy of the house it rules in your chart. Like, if you are an Aquarius Ascendant then Venus rules 4th house with Taurus sign and 9th house with Libra sign. 4th house is Home, Home Land & Mother and 9th house is Far Distant Lands, Luck/Fortune & Higher Education etc. So, wherever it goes in transit, person will be feeling the energy of 4th house and 9th house in transiting house. Like, Venus going into 2nd house, person will be interested in gaining wealth from mother, real estate or through far distant lands as 2nd house and Venus both represent Wealth.
Impact of Venus’s Transit – Here, we need to keep in mind few things –
- Venus’s transit lasts about 25 days. It is not a big enough time period to make a profound prediction. At the same time, it doesn’t mean that Venus doesn’t do anything in those 25 days. But by the time we start getting/noticing results of Venus in a particular house or it starts setting stage for any important event, Venus moves to another house. So, to use Venus in prediction, it is necessary to see when Venus is going to retrograde in transit. At that time, it stays in a sign for about 5 months. Then we can use Venus in making prediction. Venus retrograde happens once in 18 months.
- Another thing is that Venus is a Gentle Planet like Moon. Hence, in majority of cases, Venus won’t be able to impact other planets but will be impacted by them. Only time when Venus impacts another planet is when it is impacting Moon and Mercury. Rest all planets are much more powerful than Venus. Hence, it is another planet which can be easily inflicted by Malefics like Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
- Last but not the least, understand Venus purely as Love, things we love to do. It represents same thing in Birth Chart. Now, as Venus transits through houses for about 25 days, it will show that we will love to do things related with that house. Of course, dignity in birth chart and during transit will change the end result as to the kind of results we are getting in end but common thing is that we would love to get involved with things related with the house Venus is transiting.
