Venus enters Aquarius on March 1st (11:45 am EST). This is the breath-of-fresh-air transit. Relationships, finances, self-esteem and values are given a shot of detachment, innovation and freedom. What used to matter may not matter quite so much as you’re able to step back and glimpse the bigger picture (Aquarius is the sign of the collective).
It may be time for an update to what you value, how you look or who you associate with.
Venus in Aquarius can emphasize the beauty of what’s unique or it can emphasize feelings of alienation. Much depends on how you deal with Venus-themed issues - do you feel like a misunderstood outcast or are you ready to embrace what’s yours? This isn’t a warm, fuzzy transit (independence is a huge theme) but it can be a relief for those who are ready to enjoy what lies beyond set definitions of beauty, success or popularity.
This transit sparkles for those who aren’t afraid to be themselves. Yes, this is a huge cliché, but it’s true. Whether you loath or enjoy what you see in the mirror, Venus in Aquarius asks you to celebrate who you are and what you have no matter what others think. Stepping away from the values that they assign to you can be tremendously freeing. You find it attractive/desirable/precious and they don’t, but suddenly it doesn’t matter what they think.
At the same time, consider where you feel free to love and be loved the way you want (without judgement or fear). Is there a place like that in your life?
