“Peace is not an easy prospect–it requires greater bravery than does conflict.” Ozzie Zehner
With Venus (desires) and Mars (actions) “squaring off” with each other today, it may be more of a challenge now to “lasso-in” what we want without creating some sort of potential conflict for ourselves. It could be, perhaps, that our timing is off. Or, that we’re simply pushing too hard (applying too much “yang” energy) and maybe just need to back off (assume a receptive “yin” stance). In traditional astrology, Venus square Mars is often depicted as the “Battle of the Sexes.”
Mars in Sagittarius, too, can make us more prone to “venting our beliefs,” which could naturally invite some pushback from others, depending, in part, on how we choose to conduct or express ourselves. Sometimes, how we say something is also even more important than what we say.
In the relationship sphere, too, being more cooperative might be a positive way to “save the day,” in the event that we hit upon a few snags. Especially with Venus in dreamy Pisces now, which is always searching for “ideal” or “unconditional” love and is not too thrilled with confrontation.
At any rate, the Venus-Mars square can greatly invoke our passions and desires, making us feel very vital (and sexy). It can also galvanize our creative juices.
Meanwhile, the waxing Moon is also wrapping up her stay in “individualistic” Aquarius today, shifting into “transcendental” Pisces, early this evening. Ideally, this helps us to disengage our galactic-sized egos a tad, so we can hopefully play nice with each other – at least for a while!

Tarot Card For The Day: “The Star” card, which suggests that there’s a ray of hope on the horizon after a period of turmoil. Inwardly, we may also be feeling more self-confident and more at ease just being ourselves now. The “Six of Wands” card also fell out of the deck twice, while I was shuffling, signifying that we may possibly be honored for our past efforts now. This recognition may also motivate us to want to do more of the same, in the future. It’s always interesting to observe, too, how one thing (one action), often leads to another. And yet another. How we’re always, seemingly, peeling back more layers of the proverbial onion, which also, quite perplexingly, never seems to shrink in size! 🙂
“The applause was so loud and insistent that I had to respond with several encores. I was numb with happiness, when it was over, I knew that this alone must be my life and my world.” Leni Riefenstahl

Hope it’s a good one!
