Śukra (Shukra) has been transiting in its own sign Vṛṣabha (Vrishabha)/ Taurus and is set to move to Mithuna Rāśi (Rashi) on 31st July, 2012. While the love for luxury and the good things of life was manifesting during this transit, the nature of Mithuna is that of multiplicity and this will pose a challenge during this transit. Śukra (Shukra) gets debilitated in a Mercurial sign-Kanyā (Kanya)/ Kumārī Rāśi (Kumari Rashi) and therefore it can be inferred that Śukra (Shukra) is not inherently comfortable in Mercurial signs. Mithuna is indicative of duality and multiplicity and for people with innate Venusian issues this is not a very easy transit. Otherwise, at other levels, Śukra (Shukra) is a great friend of Budha/ Mercury and excellent results can come in corporate communication and managerial activity. Rājayoga (Rajayoga) can result for those who have the combinations of these planets, especially in Mercurial signs, and even more so if in Muthuna Rāśi (Rashi).
For certain others, this could be a time to exercise restraint as the sign Mithuna relates to copulation/ Maithuna and for horoscopes with such Yogas this could be a time of increased intimacy and such activity.
We also have to understand that Śukra in Mithuna/ Venus is Gemini in July-August 2012 will not be uniform as Parāśara has given a lot of importance to the degree placements of planets in signs in his monumental classic Bṛhat Parāśara Horā Śāstra.
