Venus enters Sagittarius on December 1st, 2017. Relationships, money, values and self-esteem will go through an adventurous phase. More, different and better will be attractive.
Venus themes will be full of humour or exaggeration. Something you attract can be hopeful, or an escapist distraction. Distractions are not always bad - they can lighten the mood and remind you that life does not have to be serious, all the time. A no-strings flirtation can make you feel desirable again. A fun indulgence may be just what you need to put things in perspective. Looking at the bigger picture can open your eyes to new ways of seeing yourself and the concept of "acceptable" beauty. Venus in Sag doesn't give a sh*t about what's acceptable, and wants you to discover a larger truth that works for you - what values feel honest and what looks good (to you).
But if you use the distraction as a way of avoiding immediate problems, know that you can't outrun a pressing obligation or uncomfortable situation.
This transit will present new possibilities for Venus-themed issues - new approaches to relationships, new ways of expressing your values. Sagittarius' natural optimism can encourage you to explore and take some risks; if you're not happy with what you have, check out what's over there (it might be better).
Also on December 1st, Mars in Libra will make an exact opposition to Uranus Rx in Aries (25 deg). Uranus will jolt Mars' attempts at balance, resulting in sudden actions/results/endings (an opposition is a culmination). Events will accelerate and swing (Libra) in one direction or the other. Moderation will difficult (or impossible) and along with Venus in Sag, this day could trigger a wild leap into something new. Or, a sudden escape. This will not be a moment to cling or posses. Independence is the vibe, and the more willing you are to seek out your own path, the easier you'll find it to manage these influences.
Having said this, there is always a caution with hard Uranus aspects: if you're going to burn some bridges, be absoltuely certain that you're prepared to never go back. Results are often permanent, and ruptures are irreparable.
Wondering what 2018 has in store for you? I'm currently booking into March, so if you want a reading that's still early(ish) in the year, consider ordering a consult.
