Planetary Energy of the Day – Venus

Pamela McDonough
Pamela is Vedic astrologer and artist. She is an avid student of the ancient Indian arts and sciences and her passion for the Vedic Sciences evolved organically out of her own personal quest for alternatives to western medicine for lifestyle and stress management. Her quest began in 2001 and resulted in her studying with amazing gurus that carry ancient lineages from India in Jyotish and the sacred art of yantras and mandalas. Along with her astrology practice Pamela collaborates with her husband Mick creating yantra and mandala sculptures for yoga studios, retreat centers, spas and personal collectors.

Venus goes to work.

The beauty and love bound Venus is making it’s way through Capricorn right now, and it is under the influence! That is, the influence of Saturn, Mercury, Rahu, Mars and the Moon (Moon by sign aspect/rashi drishti)!

If you are Libra or Taurus rising and ruled by Venus you may feel like you are in the cosmic convergence zone right now!

Here’s why.

Saturn’s influence is among the strongest of the bunch because for the next seven weeks or so Venus and Saturn are connecting in a very unique way. Saturn is retrograde right now transiting in Libra — the sign owned by Venus. And Venus will be transiting Capricorn and Aquarius — the two signs owned by Saturn.

We can think of this situation like you were swapping houses with a friend for a few weeks. You would be connecting all of the time to figure out where certain things were located in the house. Using each others cooking utensils, towels, etc.. You would have a dramatic influence on one another during this time! 

It is a similar experience with Saturn and Venus right now.

Saturn also has two roommates along for the ride in Venus’s house.

And these three planets, Mars, Saturn and Rahu are not a happy bunch as they don’t really get along together all that well especially when they are all together. 

Venus feels the energy of these three planets from Capricorn right now. 

Capricorn is an earthy sign that has a very pragmatic, structured and business minded influence on Venus while in this house. 

I chose this photographic specifically to connect with energy of today and Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Venus.

Can you tell which elements and colors in the photograph connect to which planetary energy or meaning? 

The colors, the action of the girl, the clothing, and all the rest connect to planetary energy. Now you have a small insight into how my brain works when it comes to art, color and Jyotish! A little scary…. 🙂

Post your answers on our page https://www.facebook.com/YantraAndMandalaArt I thought it might be fun to see what you think! Don’t be shy!

I will post the final answers on our FB page at the end of the day today! The winner will receive the yantra or mandala greeting card of their choice. 

Thanks for taking time to read my words…and happy Venus day!

Namaste, Pamela
