Venus stations retrograde Tuesday bringing matters of the heart, creative and monetary pursuits into focus internally. Retrogrades are passive, inward directed energy and while in Gemini : social aspirations, creative thinking, harmonious communications will be churning in our heads.
We will likely see lots of people talking to themselves trying to figure out what directions to take to increase peace of mind and hone the mental operations as well as the messages given and received.
Venus is Cardinal (Libra) and fixed (Taurus); Gemini mutable, so Venus will likely take the lead to smooth things over while Gemini house does the dexterity dance. Gemini is observant, so pay attention to what is NOT being said.
This is not a time to be taking Venus by the reins and spurring her into the fray, instead it is a time of reconsideration and diplomacy regarding visionary ideas involving compromise with others (Sagittarius opposite), as well as confronting personal obstacles involving work and service for both yourself and others on a cosmic scale.
That’s the quickie global rundown….
Where Venus Rx will be manifesting in your chart is near 23 degrees in the houses of Gemini, (conjunction or fusion) Sagittarius by opposition (compromise with others) and the houses of Virgo and Pisces by square (personal obstacles).
Late degree Leos and Aries are up for opportunities (sextile) via Venus Rx – check near 23 degrees and planets less than as the Rx cycle gets underway, planets here will need to actively creatively express themselves in order to reap the benefits of the sextile.
Sun Jupiter conjunction offers the same sextile opportunities to late degree Cancers and Pisces – near 23-24 degrees.
Here’s the brief rundown of houses:
1, 5, 9 are the personal houses
1 – physical body, style of competition 5 – love and expression 9 – spirit in human experience
2, 6, 10 are the material houses
2 – worldly possessions 6 – health, routine 10 – social status, prestige
3, 7, 11 are the social houses
3 – siblings 7 – partner of the heart 11 – friends
4, 8, 12 are the houses of emotions & endings
4 – womb and the tomb 8 – death & rebirth 12 – cosmic connections
There are great energies in play, grand earth trine involving Mercury in Taurus, Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Hands on material matters, achievement and hard work will be paying off for the earthy peeps – check near 8-10 degrees for any planets in earth they are getting recognition and the climb is easier.
Venus in Gemini, Saturn Rx in Libra (both air) and Neptune in Pisces (water) are also in a grand trine giving thoughts regarding relationships and dealings with partners a more inward spiritual seeking bent as Neptune is direct (3 degrees) while Venus prepares to station Rx at 23 degrees (Saturn Rx at 24).
I’ll be back with a homespun Venus Rx tarot spread / reading soon…
Sorry so late with this one…I worked my transit. Mars square Mars frustration out by digging up 4 waist high trash barrels full of garden weeds in prep for planting food. Plus, trying to sleep early (midnight is early for me) and I found Doom (Karl Urban) in my basement while I was doing laundry, and nothing like an action adventure flick to help me relax…
nite all, or good morning depending on where you are….
