  5. Venus in Gemini: 3...




According to Vedic astrology, Venus is now in Gemini (or Mithuna, as it’s called in Sanskrit), the sign ruled by grass-green Mercury, the planet of communication and commerce.

To give you an idea of how Venus will influence you from Gemini until August 21, here’s what Parashara—one of the greatest writers and teachers of Vedic astrology—said about Venus: “Venus is charming and has a splendid physique, is excellent and great in disposition, has charming eyes, is a poet.

 According to Varamihira, another great sage and astrologer, “Venus is fond of happiness, handsome, [has] fine eyes and black ringlets.”

So beautiful Venus is full of attractiveness and is posited to broadcast all the above from the sign of marketing and public relations ruled by mass-communicator Mercury.

This also means that you may now embark on a short travel (read vacation).

Plus, Venus makes one a charmer in any social setting—and your social life is about to get filled with such pleasant conversations to last you until the early morning hours.

So you can now grow your business, have fun, and express yourself through beautiful, creative writing and speaking with these time-tested techniques. You can happily bid goodbye to your money worries, too!

Mind your words and image

Now, more than ever, mass communication will help you in both trade and self-expression. In fact, Venus is well placed in Mithuna (owned by best friend Mercury), and gives excellent results.




Mercury is the Messenger and the Prince. Venus is the Teacher and the Lover.

Moreover, Venus in Gemini likes polite words—not slang or tough talk.

In fact, when Venus and Mercury grab your consciousness, sweeter speech becomes the norm. And this is a good thing, because the way you come across in a crowd or even at home will determine your levels of success and happiness.

So double check your spelling and choose considerate and polished language. Others will be grateful, respond in kind, and be more willing to please you.

Because Mercury brings humor to a presentation or meeting, and Venus wants only appropriate jokes—you could utter light hearted words or make a joke (at no one’s expense). If we think that today people are spending most of their waking hours at work, defusing a tense situation with humor can save the day.

Also, Venus favors wearing good clothes to a meeting— and if your workplace is casual, new, sparkly clean, and well-pressed garments will help you stand out.

If you have a “power meeting” (some people still do), try to wear your nicer pieces from your wardrobe for best results.

Super sounds for success and joy

If you’ve been following Dr. Pillai, you already know that sounds can create abundance, good relationships and even well-being.

  • To improve the effects of Venus in your finances and relationship, you can recite the traditional sounds—OM SHUKRAYA NAMAHA—108 times on Fridays and during the Venus hora (check the AstroVed Hora Watch app).
  • To connect with the best side of Mercury and receive help for your campaigns and sales, recite—OM BUDHAYA NAMAHA—on Wednesdays and in the Mercury hora.

Memorable ceremonies

If you’re not familiar with the remedial aspects of Vedic astrology, you’ll be happy to know that every astrological blemish or difficult planet can be pacified and improved with some special Vedic technology.

Fire rituals (or Fire Labs) are the most powerful remedies as they work on multiple physical and subtle levels.

The planets or Grahas are believed to grab your consciousness and bring you thoughts that lead to your actions. For most, this process also turns into a karmic pattern.

Prayers and chanting to both the planets and their ruling archetypes or deities are said to change your consciousness and improve the karma delivered by the planets.

During fire rituals, the Vedic specialists recite traditional sounds and perform elaborate steps believed to bring miraculous results that improve your finances, relationships, and well-being.
