How does Venus acts in Shatabisha Nakshatra ruled by Rahu?
Depends on the quality of RAHU in the horoscope. Such a man or woman has out-of-the-way ideas about love, sex, and relationships. An Aquarius venus is a perfect venus that fights for woman empowerment. They rebel – the fight – they win.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi
This is applicable to a VENUS in Aquarius sign – and this become perfectly applicable when Venus is in RAHU’s nakshatra in Aquarius sign! Rahu is against the society norms – and so you see such a person’s romantic relationships way ahead of his or her time!
The fashion and beauty style of venus in Rahu is simply superb and often men and women who are in fashion industry – modelling – designing etc – score high in their fields – it often brings stardom – provided other aspects support.
This Venus – this love – comes by being impressed by the intellectualism factor. A woman with this Venus falls in love with that man who is intellectual – a man falls with that woman who is intellectual. So you see – these all are freaking intellectuals – who simply stress a lot on brains and in the process miss to connect with the heart! They simply miss.
And so this is not as pleasant as Venus in Libra, or as Venus in Pieces. Why Venus is exalted in Pieces? – once a man asked me – when I was traveling through the beautiful BAY Area of San Francisco in the US – and I showed him a photo of the epic book – Ramayana – he was surprised – he said – what this has to do with my question! I said “Please open the book and go to chapter 20 – the story of Shabari!”
It was beautiful day – cool weather – and on the shores of the Sausalito Island – he rested on a bench and went through the chapter of Shabari. Then looking into my eyes – he says “ I am getting it now – I am getting it.”
The love of Shabari is beyond the power of words – how to express it? Language is really poor! This woman spends 20 years – just to have a glimpse of Lord Rama – just to see HIS divine feet – just to see HIS blissful smile! And when Lord Rama comes – he goes directly to the Ashram – where Shabari is staying! Shabari is so much delighted, so much happy – she runs and she bows and with her flowing tears she cleans the feet of Lord Rama! And her love – her devotion is so much – that she tastes every fruit before offering it to Lord Rama! But Laxman confronts – he says to Rama “ How can you eat these fruits that she has already tasted – they are no more pure -” Laxman must be a communist – he must be a man of logic – but Rama was all for Love! Rama says “ Out of love – she is offering these fruits to me – she is tasting it – just to make sure that I get to eat – only the sweet fruits and not the sour ones – that is her love and whosoever offers me with Love – I accept it wholeheartedly!”
This is true love – it is the highest peak of love – where one simply enjoys giving!
“The Ego is happy when it is able to take something. Love is happy when it is able to GIVE something.” – Osho
The love of Venus in Pieces is all about giving, sharing, sacrificing! From the beginning we are told to sacrifice everything – just to exist – just to get all our desires fulfilled – but the Venus in Pieces is more about – the other than about ‘me’! The Venus of Pieces is the height of devotion! When love moves from the base level (Taurus) to the level of intelligence (Libra) and then finally reaches the height of all – devotion (devotion is love over-flowing) then it arrives in Pieces – and that is how the ancient seers have pointed the exalting of point Venus in the sign of Pieces – because here – it is totally purified – so much so – that such a man or woman can simply sacrifice their desires – just so that his or her lover can get what he wish to! The love of Pieces Venus is indeed deep and truly mesmerizing!
Venus exalts in Pieces – the sign of Guru! There is no intellectualism of Rahu or of Mercury – there is only this heart that beats with love, with compassion, with devotion and is willing to sacrifice without thinking even for a second!
“True love is ready to sacrifice.” – Sadhu Vaswani
The love of Aquarius – is more of inclined towards intellectualism – the love of Pieces – is more of inclined towards intelligence.
“Intellectualism is of the MIND – Intelligence is of the HEART.” – Osho
The intelligence of the heart creates poetry in your life, gives dance to your steps, makes your life a joy, a celebration, a festivity, a laughter. It gives you a sense of humor, It makes you capable of love, sharing. And that is true life. The life that is lived from the head is a mechanical life. You can earn much from the head, but you will not live much. Life is of the heart. Life can grow only through the heart.
A person with Venus in Aquarius – with Nakshatra of Rahu – may not understand this – and a person with Venus in Pieces need not understand this – simply because he or she is already following their heart – their life is growing only through their heart!
Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
