All the issues that Mercury pinged will be reinforced by Venus. Which brings us to the difference between Mercury and Venus. Mercury is the idea, the conversation, the introduction. Venus is the attraction, the relationship dynamic, the image, the values. What Mercury introduced, Venus will manifest.
Now we have the exciting or surreal attraction/temptation/creative manifestation of Mercury's idea. It needs to be grounded (via Jupiter/the North Node) so this is still about taking the liberating energy, and making sense of it (Virgo). How can you translate it into something that's real?
Venus in Aquarius can be strangely beautiful, but alien. This Yod asks you to ground that alien beauty so it works in your daily life. But you're still respecting the otherworldly vibe. Not complicated at all, is it? Such are the challenges of a Yod, and this is why some people refer to it as the "Finger of God." The task is so complex, but so essential, that it could only be thought up by a higher power.
Or, it's just challenging, which gives it the aura of divinity. Because anything that's not straightforward has to be "divine" right? That's fodder for another post. Anyway, the point is that the seemingly impossible gulf between mundane, fussy Virgo and ultra-cool, anti-establishment Aquarius is being addressed. How do you take "out there" (so far out there that it still reeks of ozone) and enter it into the ledger, without snuffing out the sparkle?
Here are the dates and degrees for this Yod:
- March 2nd: sextile Uranus at 18 deg Aries
- March 3rd: inconjunct Jupiter Rx at 18 deg Virgo
- March 5th: inconjunct North Node at 21 deg Virgo
