Venus enters Aquarius on January 17th (at 8:43 PM EST). Venus themes (relationships, values, money and self-esteem) will receive an infusion of freedom, as Venus detaches from the weight of what's acceptable.
Look at your values - are they truly yours, or are you just going along with the group? Getting swept up in a group that defies the mainstream still qualifies as going along with the group. If their values align with yours, that's great. But sometimes it's easier to "be with the rebels" because they have a righteous cause, and disagreeing with them feels treasonous.
True Venus in Aquarius does not jump on the rebellion bandwagon. Her values are about what's absoltuely unique for you, no matter what others are declaring. She is detached from what's in the moment, because she's already past this moment - Aquarius is the sign of the future. Therefore, this transit is an optimum time to experiment. Feeling bored with your look? Maybe your love life needs something fresh (even the healthiest relationship can get a bit stale). Venus in Aquarius asks you to check out what you've never tried before, in a way that's healthy for you and everyone involved, of course.
Mosts of all, Venus in Aquarius is about the beauty of the individual. She attracts, not because everyone loves her, but because a select few are drawn to her quirks and detachment. And here's a key concept- detachment. She can be a fabulous friend, because she does not judge or cling. She's curious about everyone, but she needs to step back in order to be this way. Therefore, this transit encourages you to step back from what/who you're most attached to. You're not leaving (unless you want to) you're just looking at everything from a slightly different angle. Pretend you're an outsider, viewing your relationship/business/approach to people. How do these things look?
Venus in Aquarius is the fresh perspective on what you want and love.
Here are the aspects she'll make:
- Jan 19th: sextile Vesta (2 deg Sagittarius)
- Jan 27th: opposite Ceres Rx (12 deg Leo)
- Jan 29th: conjunct the South Node (14 deg)
- Feb 3rd: conjunct Juno (20 deg)
- Feb 4th: square Jupiter (21 deg Scorpio)
- Feb 6th: sextile Uranus (25 deg Aries)
- Feb 10th: Pisces ingress
Key aspects include:
Opposition to Ceres: two female archetypes are in opposition. The mother (Ceres) attempts to nurture/create something she's proud of, but she's challenged by a different view of what's attractive. This can be mother/daughter at odds, or feeling unattractive because you're different.
Conjunction to the South Node: blast from the past. Old lovers/attractions can shake things up. So can old relationship/financial habits. What/who reappears may simply be a catalyst for change.
Conjunction to Juno: two female archetypes unite. The wife (Juno) joins forces with the female attraction principal. Apply this to partnerships in general, and you have a harmonious agreement about new rules or a freer approach to fidelity/commitment. No room for jealousy here - trust and mutual acceptance are essential.
