Venus is leaving Aries for Taurus today.
Her departure breaks up the Fire stellium that has gotten our blood pumping the last few weeks. Now, it is on to the Fixed Earth sign for the Goddess of Love—a sign she rules.
Since Mars remains in the sign he rules, Aries, the two are now in places they are very comfortable—things will feel as it should.
The thawing ice and snow is being replaced with the first chilly bike rides of the year. The sun feels a bit warmer and shines ever brighter.
Aphrodite’s three week sojourn in the second sign will have us thinking of flowers buds and sprouting veggie seeds. Afternoon-long dog walks by the river. Any excuse to get our hands and feet in the dirt. Fresh air in our lungs.
We will feel the need to get our bodies prepared for summer—shedding our layers and relishing the pleasure getting our fashions just so brings. Taurus is Venusian, therefore maintaining a certain appearance is requisite to feeling vital. And not just for our physical form, our home decor will benefit exponentially from the Goddess of Love’s ardent command.
Yes, today, as Venus moves into her new position, she will be accompanied by the conjunction of Mercury and Neptune in Pisces at 8º. The melding of these planets gives us transient poetic and photographic genius—it would be wise to take a camera and pen & paper on your excursions outdoors.
Collectively, we will find it ever easier to harness nature’s terrific beauty. Capture what you see and feel in image and verse. It will be magical.
Happy Venusian adventures and happy St. Paddy’s Day.
