Venus and Lilith
Venus in Scorpio completes the last of three squares to Black Moon Lilith in Aquarius. The first square occured on September 16th, and the second (when Venus was Rx) on October 17th, so this issue has been active for a few months.
Venus in Scorpio maintains her power by keeping secrets, exploring what’s hidden and possessing. At the same time, she demands absolute intimacy and pushes past all limits (the deepening spiral of honesty regarding what’s really loved/desired). This could apply to relationship, self-esteem or financial issues. BML in Aquarius would disrupt this with challenges based on the freedom to break away via “unacceptable” or shocking female behaviour/issues. Black Moon Lilith is the outsider and dangerous woman.
Her ongoing conflict with Venus in Scorpio since September points to a crisis between power and freedom, possession and detachment, darkness and clarity (Aquarius). As this issue concludes today, there may be a final crisis. Venus and BML are two different expressions of female energy - Venus attracts while Lilith rejects all those who would seek to control her. What are you trying to liberate yourself from? Or (conversely) what resources are you trying to preserve/draw towards you?
Meanwhile, Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) makes a trine to Juno Rx. The fixed (Taurus) relationship agreement (Juno) is empowered through deep transformation (Pluto). And soon after, Juno stations direct, which means the agreement moves forward.
There is no stagnation here - the relationship review (Rx) led to a change, and now you progress. This is necessary even in the most settled agreements.
I discussed the Juno/Pluto trine in this post from December 17th, when these dynamics were first triggered by Mars in Pisces:
“Mars also makes a sextile to Juno Rx so we know the above involves a relationship (business or personal) agreement. Right now it’s under review and Mars’ sextile activates energetic progress. You’re not just sitting and pondering the terms of the agreement, you and another are taking action to revise it.
Note that Juno will trine Pluto two times:
Dec 23rd (Juno Rx)
Dec 31st (Juno direct)
Juno/Pluto is the profound commitment that harmonizes with slow change and empowers both parties as it evolves. The process has started now (the trine is within orb) and the Mars sextile suggests following the route of intuitive action to make it happen.”
So the second trine is approaching at the end of the month- great news for those who are ready for a serious commitment to evolve. You can treat Dec 23rd-31st as one influence: a time of increasing strength between you and another. This strength will be based on mutual awareness of the need for change.
Consider how this might be connected to the tension between Venus and BML, especially Venus’ possession and exploration of what’s hidden. What has that tension clarified?
