Mark November 16th on your calendar as the day things open up.
Not only is Neptune in Pisces going direct, but Venus moves into Sagittarius, the sign of exploration and optimism. After the heaviness of Venus in Scorpio, Venus in Sag will feel positively buoyant. This sign looks beyond the horizon; anything/anyone new or exotic will be attractive (or attracted to you) depending on what house Sagittarius occupies in your chart.
All Venus themes (relationships, money, self-esteem, values) will expand to include new possibilities. Venus in Sag asks "What else can you do with what you've got?" It's time to venture beyond what's familiar, take some risks, and consider that more is possible.
Sagittarius is also the sign of philosophy and beliefs. Some of you might examine your relationship beliefs (monogamy, fidelity) or your philosophies around tangible resources or physical beauty. Above all else, Venus in Sag wants freedom to venture beyond what's known.
For those trying to move on from a breakup/depression, this is your transit.
Right out of the gate, Venus will be stretching her wings as she encounters a square from Neptune (at 4 degrees Pisces) from November 16th to November 20th. A square means tension, so there will be friction between the desire to have/attract more (Venus in Sag) and fantasies that distort the desire. Venus square Neptune is about delusions and rose coloured glasses. When Sagittarius is involved, romantic ideals/beliefs can become so heightened that they bear no resemblance to the real world. Neptune will have just stationed direct, so this could be a brand new fantasy or romantic crusade. Sagittarius can be driven by the belief of what is "right," but when Neptune is involved, the rightness of a situation is blurred.
This influence can feel almost ecstatic. Everything seems possible, and no one is out of reach. It's relatively harmless if you're just looking for a shot of optimism. Explore any and all possibilities, but bear in mind that that you're justexploring. Nothing is certain with Venus square Neptune.
If you have anything from 0 to 5 degrees of the Mutable signs, you'll feel this square most strongly.
Here are the other aspects Venus in Sag will be making:
- November 26th: trine Uranus Rx at 12 degrees Aries
- November 27th: square Chiron at 13 degrees Pisces
- December 4th: trine Jupiter at 22 degrees Leo
Venus will exit Sagittarius on December 10th.
