Venus Gochar Kanya Rashi Sept Oct 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, September 7, 2014

Find out how Venus Gochar affects you according to your moon sign.

Venus will transit (gochar) to Virgo/Kanya rashi in early morning hours on 25th September 2014 as per Indian Standard Time for a horoscope prepared for Bangalore. Venus remains in Virgo through October 19th, when it moves to its own sign of Libra on 19th October 2014. This is a very short transit in Virgo, mainly because it is not getting retrograde in the middle and is maintaining pretty much constant speed through the transit. Venus is combust around October 27, but by then it would be out of Virgo rashi. Venus would be conjunct with Rahu and opposition with Ketu on October 15th, when it comes within a degree of Rahu. At this time, Rahu, as its usual path is, is retrograde and Venus is moving forward with its constant speed.

Venus is debilitated in Virgo sign. It is a sign it cannot stand because it is the sign of temperamental Mercury, while Venus stands for sophistication and grace. Mercury, on the other hand is unpredictable and Virgo is its exaltation as well as moolatrikona sign. Venus is the teacher/guide of the Asuras while Jupiter does that job for Devas. Venus is therefore quite at home in Jupiter’s sign of Pisces, the opposing sign of Virgo.

During the transit of Virgo in September/October of 2014, Sun and Rahu are also in Virgo. Rahu effects both Sun and Venus by conjunction, with the closest conjunction between Rahu and Venus occurring on October 15th. The only saving grace is that Saturn is in Libra, in its exaltation sign, but that is not enough to cancel the debility of Venus and cause a neechabhanga rajayoga.

Needless to say, during this transit of Virgo, Venus will be weak and its affect will show up not only on transit results for various rashis, but for mundane astrology as well. For individual rashis, these effects should never be looked at in isolation, but along with all the transits affecting a person during the month.  The results below will automatically be taken into account along with other transits. An overall result is always compiled for monthly horoscope and presented on this site.

Venus in its debilitation lacks all its beauty, appeal and charisma. There is a lack of refinement in appearance. Debilitated Venus can be visualized like a drunk, vulgar supermodel who has smudgy makeup all around added with rude and uncivilized behaviour. That’s a sight no one wants to see. There would be problems in love life. Deep inside, there is a lack of emotion and affection for others. There is anxiety (specially among males) towards the opposite sex and an inability to commit. For men, there could be problems in dealing with and socializing with women. For women, ladylike qualities and grace would be missing. Association with Rahu brings in a degree of perversion and strange alliances.

Usually, going by the theory, Venus gives good transit results when it is transiting houses 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th from janma rashi or natal moon in a horoscope. However, this time, the results will be slightly modified. Since Venus is not only in fall, but closely aspected by Rahu also, the auspicious results for the above mentioned houses will be muted down. Moreover, for 6th, 7th and 10th house gochara, the overall result will be deemed unfavourable, the results will be worse than usual. The following table captures the essence:

Janma Rashi Transit House Usual Results for Venus Transit Sept/Oct 2014 Gochara Results Comments
Aries (Mesha) 6th House Inauspicious Inauspicious This is not a good transit for Venus. This shows problems ill-health to wife and problems in partnerships. For Aries rashi, Venus rules dhana-bhav and kalatra-bhava house in a horoscope and hence financial problems could arise. Be careful of sex related diseases or diseases of urinary or kidney disorders.
Taurus (Vrishabh) 5th House Auspicious Neutral Lack of opportunities at place of work and missed chances. Could show problem with wife and children
Gemini (Mithun) 4th House Auspicious Neutral Problems related to maintenance at place of living. Lack of status and honour, or losing chances to earn respect from superiors at work.
Cancer (Kark) 3rd House Auspicious Neutral Enemies could grow. The Cancer born would not be able to prevail over them, even after many efforts.
Leo (Simha) 2nd House Auspicious Neutral Losing arguments to peers at work. Not being able to prevail, even for the right point of view.
Virgo (Kanya) 1st House Auspicious Neutral Usually this is a good transit to meet with new people and make new contacts. Naturally, in the current context, the ability to make new friends and even getting chances to get in to relationships will become remote.
Libra (Tula) 12th House Auspicious Neutral If you carefully look at the transit results, Venus is the only planet with an auspicious 12th house transit result. The effect is similar to Virgo with a 1st house transit, but in this case, it is not meant to be.
Scorpio (Vrishchika) 11th House Auspicious Neutral Financial gains will be muted down. The Scorpio born person will not get the full effect of an auspicious transit. There will be missed chances at work to gain recognition from superiors at work for professionals or from teachers at school for students.
Sagittarius (Dhanu) 10th House Inauspicious Inauspicious This transit shows problems from authorities and government. It is unfavourable time for business and at work.
Capricorn (Makar) 9th House Auspicious Neutral This is an auspicious transit usually, helping students and helping with multiple sources of income.
Aquarius (Kumbha) 8th House Auspicious Neutral Not a good time to take loans or build a house.
Pisces (Meena) 7th House Inauspicious Inauspicious Increased expenditure and dispute in partnerships. Litigations and losses are also indicated.

These results will not be similar every time Venus goes over Virgo. At other times, there could be benefic aspects by other planets. Rahu will not be involved next time around, after almost a year. Therefore, please do not take this as theory of Venus transiting through Virgo every time.
