- Venus in Gemini square Neptune Rx in Pisces: 14 degrees
- Mars in Cancer square Uranus in Aries: 28 degrees
When the planets of love (Venus) and sex (Mars) both make hard aspects to the outer planets, you know today has the potential to go off the rails. There could be an emotional pursuit of someone who doesn't exist - you're "in love" with their Instagram account. Or, the drunken text that seems edgy-sexy at the time. But you regret it the next morning.
Of course, this can be about other things. Venus is what you want and Mars is what you do to get it. Venus covers money, self-esteem, beauty and all social interactions. Mars is anger, violence, action.
Neptune's blurry square can enhance a craving for something impossible, so you end up making the wrong choice (Gemini). Uranus' push can trigger impulsive actions as you snap or take a risk. The root cause will probably involve a need (Cancer) that must be met ASAP.
As I wrote in this week's horoscopes, Venus and Mars will calm down on the 18th with some beneficial aspects (post to follow on the 18th). So there is good potential here - Venus/Neptune can lead to something beautiful, compassionate and creative. Mars/Uranus can set you free as you give suffocating traditions/family the boot. The net result is expansion and opening. Exhale.
But you have to be careful today. Really careful. Think before you act. Consider your options. If you're tempted to dive headfirst into something, ask yourself if it's in your best interests. If you're trying to open something up or pursue, control your impatience and move carefully. Do you really want X, or is something else at play?
