Right now with so many planets in Aquarius, a sign of impersonal detachment and objectivity, it can be easy to forget that our interactions with others can be unpredictable and fraught with potential landmines of emotional reactions, the eruption of old wounds, and mysterious feelings over which we have no control. Today (February 19th) is one of those days. Venus is in Aquarius where we do tend to be more detached and prefer interactions that are reliably sensible, but Venus squares Mars today (90 degree aspect) which pits our own needs and interests (Mars) against those of a harmonious and comfortable alliance with others (Venus).
Mars is in Taurus, ruled by Venus, which makes this challenging alignment more of a gentle push than a hard shove but it will be important today to gently (Venus) assert our needs (Mars) where appropriate, and be clear about what we want (Mars) from others (Venus). This is often easier said than done, but if we can use our emotional intelligence to determine the best route through an interpersonal difficulty, we will certainly be successful! ❤️
