“Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world.” John Evelyn

The empowering Sun exits “I have” Taurus and cascades into “I think” Gemini, shifting our core focus from an accumulation of things and a quest for security to an accumulation of knowledge (5:22 am EDT) and eager interaction with others. Restless Gemini is characterized by a “need to know” and also requires active participation in its environment via travel and communication. (The Sun will be in intellectual Gemini for the next month.)

Later on, we also have the Moon departing personally ambitious Capricorn for forward-thinking, detached Aquarius (10:32 pm EDT), another socially-minded air sign, like Gemini, in which attention is centered on group expression and collaborative efforts.

Goddess of love Venus, in pleasure-seeking Taurus, is additionally forming a potent, harmonious trine to passionate, renewing Pluto in Capricorn (2:01 pm EDT), potentially giving us the chance to deepen or strengthen (or heal) our relationship ties. Venus-Pluto often puts us in touch with our deepest desires (Pluto rules the subconscious) and helps to foster particularly strong emotional reactions to persons and events around us.

Often on Venus-Pluto days, we will be riveted by certain captivating stories that we hear about in the news regarding relationships and romance. Or, even Venus-ruled artists or entertainers may capture our attention in a special or singular way. Lady Gaga, for instance, racked up, I believe, 7 or 8 Grammy Awards one night, when Venus and Pluto were exactly aligned in the sky, effectively “stealing the show.”

Too, sometimes old lovers from our past, including our karmic past, appear under this same aspect. It is an influence that is linked with finding our soulmate.  (Pluto rules death and rebirth).

This same aspect also favors going treasure-hunting. I recently “fell in love” with, and ended up purchasing, a fabulous pinkish, salmon-colored, upholstered chair at a tag sale the day Venus and Pluto were exactly aligned in my horoscope (Venus rules art and other objects of beauty). As soon as I set my eyes on the chair, I was “overpowered” (Venus-Pluto) by it, and simply had to have it. Venus-Pluto is also associated with “obsession” or “intense craving.” This aspect is also excellent for personal creativity.

Enjoy your Saturday! I’ll let you know how I make out on the antiques trail!
