Venus enters Aries on April 20th at 12:10 pm EDT. Relationships, money and self-esteem enter assertive new territory in this Mars-ruled sign. Venus in Aries is about attracting new opportunities or expressing your values in bold new ways. The energy is passionate and impulsive but necessarily long-lasting. At this point you’re going where instinct leads you: anything could happen. What is crucial is honesty - this transit can push you to acknowledge what you really want and if you’re ready to break away from whatever’s been restricting you.
This blends well with the Sun’s entrance into Venus-ruled Taurus, earlier in the day. Noting that the Sun is approaching Uranus in Taurus, these two planetary ingresses mark a definite shift in what you want, how you attract it and how you express your self-worth. Aries is competitive, and while Venus may express this indirectly, rest assured that this will be a factor in moving towards what you want. Competition may be attractive or you may be pushed to assert your values in new and uncomfortable ways by taking charge of what you want.
Again, this is all part of breaking free - say goodbye to complacency, stagnation and passivity.
