There’s an obsessive vibe happening now, and it’s due to Mars (sex and agression) in Scorpio square Venus (love and creativity) in Leo (at 23 degrees).
Mars in Scorpio insists on radical honesty and intimacy that cuts to the bone. Venus in Leo wants applause. You can see how these energies clash, yes?
Because these planets move quickly, you probably won’t feel a direct impact on your chart unless you have planets in Scorpio or Leo between 21-23 degrees. But the overall energy is charged with contempt (Mars in Scorpio) for a** kissing. And that contempt is being fired up by someone’s glittery fame/success/beauty (Venus in Leo). We’re talking Scorpio, so it’s guaranteed that there’s an obsessive streak of “want” shot through with anger, as well. All directed at Venus in Leo, who just wants to be loved by everyone.
What (or who) do you want that you can’t have? Is there a creative/financial/romantic goal that feels so far out of your reach, you can’t stop thinking about it? Square aspects create tension, and tension creates the drive for change. Who’s better at initiating transformative change than Mars in Scorpio? If there’s a goal that you desire right now, figure out what needs to change in your life so you can get there. Note that if it’s a particular person you want, stalking/manipulation is lower Scorpio. You’re better than that.
Conversely, if you’re on the Venus end of things, is something undercutting your glow? If your relationship/creative project/lover feels a bit hollow, check to see if what’s happening now is completely honest. Can you go deeper? Push yourself and see what happens.
This square will be exact on September 27th.
