Lively Venus and Uranus have been conjunct or joined together in Pisces the last few days. Venus is the relationship diva.  She  rules our “urge for love.” While Uranus rules our “urge for individuality.”

The sign of Pisces has to do with “redemption” and “salvation” issues. It represents disenfranchised groups or those who may not fit easily into the homogenized fabric of a society.

In traditional astrology, the Venus-Uranus conjunction has often been billed as the “classic divorce aspect” when found in a personal horoscope. This may be true. Guess who has Venus exactly conjunct Uranus in their chart?  Elizabeth Taylor!

The main reason for these two planets having this particular label put on their alliance is because when you get them together there’s usually an insatiable desire for personal freedom within the scope of  relationships. Venus loves her freedom here.  Freedom doesn’t always necessarily gel well within the confines of many typical long-term relationships, where a steady commitment and shared focus are required.

Plus, Uranus, the rebel innovator, likes a high level of excitement in romance, and can get bored quickly with more of the familiar and mundane aspects of a committed relationship. Additionally,  Venus-Uranus unions often are unconventional.

Also, when these two planets are aligned there seems to be more progress, or at least more of a news spotlight, on gay-friendly issues which would fall under the umbrella of Venus-Uranus. The pairing of these two planets seems to foster a more tolerant and accepting viewpoint or climate, within the collective, at least temporarily, for more non-traditional alliances.

Also, getting back to Elizabeth Taylor for a moment, as an example of someone who has Venus conjunct her Uranus in her chart.  She has been an outspoken advocate for gays and has supported AIDS’ fund-raising from the beginning, before it was popular to do so.  When this aspect, or really any Venus Uranus aspect, appears in a personal horoscope, it seems to foster, within the person, more of a tolerance and even a close affinity for people who are more apart from the mainstream.  Cher also has this same aspect in her horoscope.  Ellen Degeneres has Venus exactly opposite her Uranus a similar influence.  Ellen is also open about being a lesbian.

Also  Elizabeth Taylor had a deep, very close personal relationship with Michael Jackson which many people could not quite understand. That relationship could also be categorized as being Venus-Uranus.  Venus-Uranus often befriends the underdog or those who are misunderstood.  Also, Uranus rules genius and originality and Venus-Uranus often means relationships with very creative and original types of people as well.

On another level, Venus rules our power of attraction, and individuals who have Venus Uranus aligned in their charts together often have electrifying natures and an unusual ability to attract other people to them.

Here is a little bit of the “Venus and Uranus legacy” from this past week, as these two bodies get ready to “classically separate”:

March 3: Laws allowing same sex marriage in Washington, D.C. went into effect

March 3: Gay people may now finally receive communion across the diocese of ’s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands.

March 3: World Read Aloud Day encouraged human bonding on a global basis to foster awareness of literacy (See my earlier blog about this one in detail.)

March 3: President Obama’s push yet again for individual health care

March 4:  Law allowing same-sex marriages took effect in Mexico city

March 4: Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut introduced “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Bill” on Capitol Hill.  The bill would ban discrimination against service members on the basis of their sexual orientation.
