“I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Henry David Thoreau
Relationship Venus squares distant Saturn. More of a challenging, boxed up type of energy that tends to make us feel a little squarish. It seems harder for us to do the Venus connecting thing. We sense or feel that we are unloved or unappreciated. The Moon’s placement in sensitive Cancer only serves to make us more aware of our real or imagined wounds.
Fortunately this blocked Venus-Saturn energy is somewhat dissipated with a harmonious trine to spiritual Neptune which does much to elevate our mood and longing. Neptune makes us want to connect again with others but in a more mystical and idealistic way. With Venus-Neptune, we’re looking for someone to put on a pedestal, a magical deity we can worship. We don’t want anyone in our orbit who is going to serve to remind us of our limitations or who belittles our heart’s desires.
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” John Lennon
The Moon’s entrance into theatrical Leo (at 5:06 pm EDT) relaxes us and make us feel more self-confident, outgoing. It also helps to wondrously stoke our creative juices, along with the Venus-Neptune which is very imaginative and inspiring.
The evening hours are excellent for outlets such as photography, film-making, painting, poetry, dance, writing or simply listening to Neptunian music. The Sun’s positive trine to Saturn here also helps to steady our focus and concentration.
Mars in Leo is also now officially out of its “shadow retrograde period,” as of today. Theoretically, it should be easier for us to move forward with our ambitions.
In the News:
The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday, in a 7-2 vote, ruled that sex offenders can be imprisoned after their sentences expire.
Pisces is the sign of the zodiac that rules criminals and prisoners.
On Monday, we had the transiting Venus in Gemini in a challenging square to Jupiter in Pisces. When we have Venus-Jupiter in a stressful relationship with each other, it is often harder for us to “temper our pleasure-seeking impulses” which are denoted by Venus. (Venus also specifically governs our affections and romantic feelings.)
Jupiter always thinks bigger is better and more of everything is king. Jupiter tends to throw off or distort the balance of nature in a “larger than life” way, when he is allowed to run rampant.
As I mentioned in my horoscope yesterday, with Venus square Jupiter, the universe was likely going to be teaching us a thing or two about the importance of moderating our impulses. The Supreme Court decision, coming as it did in the backdrop of this Venus-Jupiter energy, seemed to be relaying this very same message to the sex offenders, punishing them for going beyond the accepted boundaries with the expression of their desires.
We also had Sun favorably sextile to Jupiter in Pisces Monday. The Supreme Court additionally ruled that life sentences without parole, for juvenile offenders convicted of crimes other than murder, were unconstitutional. I saw this somewhat as a reprieve by Jupiter, who can also be very benevolent and sympathetic to the wounded children of Pisces.
Enjoy your Tuesday. Good luck finding that magical love!
