The lovely planet Venus, ruler of beauty and connection and the creation of things which bring magic into our lives, harmonizes today with Neptune. Neptune inspires us to transcend the mundane details of earthly life and explore realms of imagination and exalted experiences. Both planets are concerned with matters of love: In Venus we find earthly love and relationship, and in Neptune we achieve the higher octave of divine, unconditional love and spiritual bliss.
Mars in Aries is semisextile (30 degrees) to Neptune – an awkward aspect in which the desire for action of Mars is thwarted by Neptune’s mystic spaciness, without a clear path to resolution. This means that today we may experience difficulty finding an outlet for the desire for spiritual expansion and creative inspiration (Venus/Neptune) but perseverance will help us to find that open door and walk through it.
