Venus in Rohini 

Spectacles, spectacular, They typically get the privileges we give to artists and entertainers. Venus gives those privileges we offer to beautiful people, artists, entertainers, lovers, gentle agreeable people. They to watch things grow. Young women in ones life can be too agreeable, beautiful, tempting. They love the beauty of a girl approaching sexual maturity, the blush, the pink; but they can also appreciate spring when the plants are just coming to bud. That period of growth when the feeling of life is fresh and pure. For some of the fighters it might also be that swelling of the crowd and excitement just before the big bout. But few should also distinguish this swelling and growth from the charging of the atmosphere that is going on in Vishakha at the other end of the zodiac. Of course when these two opposing forces work together we get some kind of magic; we see that there is more than the parts. Men will usually have a young beautiful wife who everyone lusts after. Women will be youthful, fresh and fertile. All the sisterly figures will be the same.

This can be good for luxury settings and spa life. There may be something conventional about the beauty of this placement; not that there’s anything wrong with that. These girls that Connor McGreggor and Mike Tyson have by their side are gorgeous with their swelling breasts busting from their bikini; nobody can argue against that; but this sexualization of the Venus needs some Mars or Rahu. Without affliction this can be a very pure, pale beauty in the white dress, fresh and full of life, bursting with childlike joy. Since Rohini rules over shins, ankles and forehead, they might like to wear hats and head pieces as well as an affinity for nice socks and anklets.

There is, of course, a dark side to all of this agreeableness. The good daughter, the smiling and naive little girl who always does as she’s told can easily be taken advantage of by the likes of Bill Cosby.

And even I would be an agreeable little bitch if Mike Tyson (with Venus Mars Rahu conjunction) was telling me what to do. A bit of Rahu influence can easily bring an infatuation with young girls that can cause controversy. Women with malefic influences on Venus Rohini will also hate to get old and they may have been the overly agreeable little girl learning about the so called privileges of show business. We also need to keep in mind that it takes more than just the blemish in Venus for someone to take illegal and immoral paths like Tyson or Cosby. The purity of our soul is mostly established by the purity of the Sun. And a strong but afflicted Mars is needed to give courage, activity and perhaps confusion needed to cross these boundaries. A weak Jupiter to deteriorate their humanity. In Mike Tyson’s case Venus is heavily afflicted by Mars, Rahu and Saturn. His Jupiter does not do well Mercuries house since Mercury can rationalise anything, and in Ardra he will only learn about the law of the jungle.

King Henry VIII had Venus in Rohini in conjunction with Ketu: six wives. The first was his brother’s widowed wife, Catherine of Aragon, who bore no sons; only the future Queen Bloody Mary managed to survive this union; as well as the schism in the church over the divorce. He was excommunicated by the Pope and made himself head of the Church of England. He certainly was not one to keep an agreement. This was all for a love that knew no bounds (Venus Ketu) for Anne Boleyn. It was for her he sought the world changing divorce He chased her for 13 years before he was able to marry her. Apparently she had no interest in being a mistress, so there was no “extra-pleasure” in all that time. From her was born the future Queen Elizabeth I. Still-births and infant mortality were high in those days. In modern times abortion is perhaps natures way of keeping the population in balance through science which has relieved us from high numbers of still births and sudden infant death syndrome; but also allows and compiles us to eliminate children pre-birth. In any case, King Henry literally had her beheaded: we might note that there is less than 1 degree separating Venus & the headless Ketu. Whether he did it because she complained of the mistress he took after she could not give him a son, or if the crashing of a great love brought out great vengeance, we will never know.

His 3rd wife, Jane Seymour, finally gave him a son, Edward VI, but Jane died from complications of child-birth a few weeks later; and the Edward died at age 17. He had been crowned King of Ireland at age 9. A couple years after Jane died he married “the ugly wife.” It was all just an awkward misunderstanding. She looked nothing like her portrait, but there was an agreement between Kings so he had to go through with the wedding. Six months later he convinced her to take a divorce and a comfortable settlement in the country. She must have been pretty ugly that he did not even want her around. Then when he was in his 50’s he married 18 year old Catherine Howard who was an absolute delight to the King; his “rose without a thorn.” He was old and fat and couldn’t even walk anymore. Two years later he had her executed for having an affair. He’s last wife, Catherine Parr, was about 30 years old when they married; she was smart, direct, and convinced the King to restore his daughters Mary and Elizabeth to the order of succession so he would at least have an heir, rather than none. Henry died 4 years after their marriage.

For the most part, he was never able to really see women as equals, he couldn’t connect with the feminine energy and it likely always seemed to be quite alien (Ketu to him). But he had daughters, he had wives who were as young as his daughters; many young, energetic, impetuous Rohini girls running around. But he made no meaningful connection to any of them. On the other hand, he had these grand romantic affairs and entanglement, boundless love and beauty, but without any real sense of value for any of it. No appreciation for anything people had done, no loyalty. I can just imagine that almost everyone in his court was like a smiling agreeable little girl in front of this great murderous, vengeful and temperamental King.

It was, however, the daughters who took over after his death as they were empowered to command this position. His first daughter to rule was Bloody Mary, who is famous for burning Protestants at the stake. This cruel women’s reign did not last long before the second daughter took over and slowly worked to heal the wounds of the nation and set the foundation for a stable, peaceful and prosperous state.

Venus in Rohini Pada 1, Aries Navamsha. The women in ones life tend to be healthy, fitness orientated. They take initiative and challenge themselves and others. They can be a little aggressive with a love for the direct approach. There can be some controversy to their approach: Cosby, Tyson, Reznor, Rushdie, Gauguin, and event the ladies with this placement, Willard and Pickford are known for their appreciation of youthful partners. Cosby’s controversy was certainly influences by Ketu, Saturn & Mars all afflicting this Venus.

Venus in Rohini Pada 2 Taurus Navamsha: Vargottama. Venus in own sign. They like to tell a story through their art and may be appreciated for the beauty they leave behind. Love can be quite possessive. They can be great story tellers, writers, speakers, singers. This would be a good position for collections of art, appreciation of wealth. Swami Paramananda Saraswati’s sense where well controlled by conjunction with Saturn, and perhaps eliminated by Ketu’s aspect, but he also enjoyed life with song and dance and beautiful temples and ashrams. With Saturn, he likely had a lack of trust in these young Rohini women, but when he did make an agreement he was much more likely than King Henry to actually fulfil it; he just didn’t make agreements.

Venus in Rohini Pada 3, Gemini Navamsha: They love a balanced narrative and to be walked through things step-by-step. Gives a nice friendly, neighbourly relationship with women. She is likely to have some special girl-next door qualities.

Venus in Rohini Pada 4, Cancer Navamsha: They live in very comfortable homes with every comfort and luxury to keep them safe. It might be almost like living in a padded room; and due to mental or physical debility it might literally be a padded-room.

This person considers themselves to be the most intelligent but lacks reasonableness and cannot argue on the right lines. He does not hesitate to practice hypocrisy and pretension.

Knowledge of the occult is certain with this placement. Aries, Libra & Sagittarius ascendants will not allow harm to come to the native, but if there is malefic influence the harm may be doubled and they might be subject to unnatural death.

B.V. Raman: 1st lord in the 8th house: “Learned, gambling tendencies, interested in occultism and mean character. If the lord is strong, they may take pride in helping others and have many friends. He will be religiously inclined and have a peaceful and sudden end.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be long lived, unless the lord is weak (by shadbala), then the lifespan will be medium and the native will be a thief, blameworthy himself while blaming others.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 8th house: “If endowed with strength the native will live a long life enjoying happiness. He will acquire lands, conveyance, power and position due to the merit of past lives. If the 8th lord is weak one may not have any serious trouble, but may not enjoy and luck or good fortune of any significance. The father may die or pass through some crisis. If afflicted the native will fail in his undertakings as he will be prompted to do the wrong thing and suffer loss thereby.”

Commentary:  Paul Gauguin (Venus in Rohini)

The great artist Paul Gauguin with his Venus in Rohini is an interesting case study since his paintings leave a record of his love for Rohini themed beauty. Much of his later work was burned as pornographic before it ever saw the light of day what’s left was an expression for the public’s desire for exotic art and the fascination for indigenous people around the world at that time. He was one of the fathers of primitivism and synthesistism, a post impressionistic style that “aimed to synthesize three features: 1. The outward appearance of natural forms. 2, The artist’s feelings about their subject. 3. The purity of the aesthetic considerations of line, colour and form. It’s not hard to see how this relates with this moony nakshatra.” (wiki)

Gauguin has Venus conjunct with his ascendant lord Sun to form a raja yoga in his 10th house. For historical research we have to pay special attention to the 3rd house because it represents the story of who they were. We see him getting special privileges as a famous foreign artist. One short letter he received a few years before his death highlights a number of theme’s. In the letter he is warned not to return to Europe too so as he would rush the incubation period that had been swelling the appreciation for his art. Furthermore, the privilege due to his reputation as a great artist would protect him from his enemies. All the great themes of Rohini are here: incubation, growth, swelling, appreciation and special privilege. He also had numerous children and though he managed to outlive most of his legitimate children, it’s believed he has illegitimate children scattered all over the world.

Commentary: Art and entertainment. Even Tyson worked for the Sports Entertainment. David Carpenter and Bill Cosby have offered a kind of adult entertainment through news media. They have become spectacles.
