Venus, the planet of love and beauty turns retrograde between 12:12 IST on 13 May – 12:15 IST on 25 June 2020 in Taurus (Vrishabha Rasi).
During this period, Venus gets within 8 degrees of Sun’s proximity and becomes combust for 10 days.
This combustion (Sukra Moudyami) happens between 20:50 IST on 29 May – 01:31 IST on 09 June 2020.
When Venus gets too close to the Sun it can no longer be seen in the Heavens and thus the significations of the planet suffer.
During this time, energy of Venus will be compromised. Venus is one of the planets of Guidance (the other major benefic is Jupiter).
When we cannot see Venus we are “without guidance” and this is also called Venus Eclipse.
Venus is the planet of Value (Love and Relations). When it is invisible or retrograde, it is harder to determine the true value of anything.
Therefore the 43 days period between 13 may – 25 June 2020 is a poor time for making decisions about love, relations, money.
During this period, which is called as Sukra Moudyami , Positive effects of Venus will be drastically reduced and thus people who believe in astrology, will not perform any auspicious ceremonies during this time such as weddings, engagements, house warming, launching of new business etc.
Also avoidable are changing or joining new job, moving to a new house, change of work place, interior designing at home or office.
However, talks, paperwork for above, repair work and construction which started already can be done during this period.
Venus, who controls movies, arts will not be beneficial for many who are depended on those fields.
Lockdown effects since March have already hit the economy
This ‘Venus Eclipse‘ can be seen couple of hours after sunset in west direction. Venus appears as a small black spot on Sun.
Get ready for financial crunch, breakup in relations, loneliness, frustration.
Those born with Venus as their ruling planet (born in ascendants or moon signs of taurus or libra, with moon in nakshatras of bharani, poorva phalguni, poorvashada, born on friday) can go get frustrated easily, lose self control over petty issues, loss of income, get irritated by watching entertainment programs.
Be prepared for a roller coaster ride of your deeper emotions as Jupiter and Saturn too will be in retrograde motion during these days along with Venus.
Relationships and Money will be the central issues during these 7 weeks.
This is a time of intensity and there may be wrinkles to iron out in your closest relationships.
Combust and Retrograde Venus in Taurus can make us feel as if we are working hard for no returns.
Learn to adjust and live with bare minimum.
People born under ascendants and moon signs of Taurus (Vrishabha), Libra (Thula) should void major financial transactions, love and sexual affairs, buying of jewelry, starting of new projects during this period.
These precautions should also be taken by people who are going through Venus(sukra) vimsottari dasa, also born with Moon placed in nakshatras of Bharani, Poorva Phalguni, Poorvashada.
If Venus is a benefic in your personal horoscope (generally born in ascendants of Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius) good effects will be minimised and if its a malefic for you (generally born in ascendants of Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces), it will give some relief during this combust period.
1 out of every 10 people are born with Venus retrograde and during this period, their love affairs can fail.
Such people do not follow social norms, tend to perform heroic acts to achieve what they want, but also fail most of the times.
Going from one failed relationship to another, they cannot seem to find one that is satisfying.
Note : India’s ascendant is Taurus and its lord Venus being combust in lagna is not good for its citizens and economy.
There will be few hidden forces which try to destroy all the efforts done during lockdown and they can get exposed during June 2020. India can see normal days only after Venus completely moves out of Rahu effect in August-September 2020.
USA cannot control growing number of covid-19 cases until September.
Few island countries like New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Japan will be safe during last quarter of this year.
