Mars and Venus are very personal planets, and where we were in Mars territory last week, this week Venus is the star of the show. Mars desires and has needs which are obtained through demands, but Venus is more subtle – the desires are obtained through the sheer power of attraction. Under a Venus influence such as we have now, the magnetic resonance of Venus draws the things which we value and desire to us without much effort. We sometimes think that only certain people possess this power but we all have Venus present in our charts, and we all possess the ability to attract positive things that are in harmony with our values.
First, though, we have to know something about those values, and they don’t always get along. We may want to have adventures, but also need security. We may desire a long-term partner, but cherish our freedom. Jupiter, the greater benefic as it’s called, bestows the confidence and ability to recognize possibilities, but Venus is the star which draws experiences to us. Today, with Venus in Leo in a strong square aspect to Uranus, planet of change, we can more easily imagine what will bring us that personal joy (Leo) that we crave. Uranus breaks up patterns and stuck energies, and we can either co-create a new reality or pick up the pieces afterwards! ❤️
