This week Venus, the planet of love, relating, beauty, money and values sequentially aligned with Jupiter, Saturn, the North Node, Neptune and finally by Sunday the 21st July AEST, with Pluto.
Jupiter gives Venus faith, trust and optimism that it will all work out in the end, and if it hasn’t worked out yet, it’s not the end. Saturn tested that faith, and presented the need to not sell out one’s truth in order to win love or preserve an existing relationship. Venus conjoining the North Node in Cancer affirmed the value of personal love and the rightness of offering tender loving care to the family of suffering humanity whilst the fleeting contact of Venus with it’s higher octave planet Neptune gave a taste or glimpse of transcendent love as alluring as an oasis in the desert. Now, this weekend, tender, vulnerable Cancerian Venus faces off with dark lord Pluto in Capricorn, who will demand courage, authenticity, and strength from her to go deeper and own her own dark side. Can she incorporate shadow elements – her own and those of others – in her quest for truly loving relating?
