Venus in Aries

4.12.21 – In the heart of the storm with Venus and Pluto

artist unknown

Wrapped up in the planetary alignments of yesterday’s Aries New Moon (catch up here if you missed it) was a challenging square from Venus in Aries to Pluto.  Any planet in the sign of Aries acts with independence and courage, and Venus, planet of relating and harmony, is no different.  This understandably creates some dissonance in the best of circumstances but we also have a challenging square from the Sun, Moon and most especially Venus to Pluto, planet of endings and transformation. When tied to the energies of the New Moon, the power of Pluto to break down the weak links that hold us back intensifies and the archetype of the Phoenix bird arising from the ashes of the old life was a strong element of the New Moon.

Today the Aries Moon reintroduces Venus and Pluto for one last dance to force the truth into the open.  By the time the Moon shifts into calm and peaceful Taurus just before 2 pm EDT/6 pm GMT everything will settle down and we can put the pieces back together and reorganize anything which has been lost during the earthquake. ❤️

4.5.21 – Supercharge your relationships with Venus and Mars!

art by Dolores Develde

A harmonious interaction between Venus in Aries and Mars in Gemini is building throughout the day today and will peak Tuesday morning.  Venus, planet of harmony and relating, is in Aries right now where she is more dynamic and forceful, encouraging us to speak our truth and own our own attitudes.  Aries is ruled by Mars, so the sextile from Venus in Aries to Mars is a double whammy of Martian energies!  Although Venus and Mars are not natural allies – one is sweet and soft (Venus) and the other is hard and aggressive (Mars) – when we can integrate these two forces we can get the most out of each of them.  That is the main influence today.

The Moon has just entered Aquarius and will be quite busy over the next few days, interacting with nearly every planet.  Today, though, we have a harmonious sextile from the Moon to Mercury in the early afternoon EDT.  Mercury, planet of the mind, is also in Aries and opinions are loud and potent.  The intellectual honesty of the Aquarius Moon will help to clarify our thinking this afternoon under this influence, which will help to better utilize all of this Aries energy.  Fire purifies and inspires, but it does take some focus to take advantage of its unique gifts.

Transcript by tiny little digital genies and roughly edited by me, please excuse errors!

Hey everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes Welcome back to my channel. In today’s video, we’re going to be talking about the astrology of the week, starting Monday, March 15, through Monday, March 22 2021. This week we have the spring equinox or the March Equinox if you’re in the southern hemisphere, and we also have Venus moving into Aries a little later in the week.

Before we get into that, I’d like to recap something I talked about last week and probably the week before, but right now there are no planets in retrograde motion until April 27. When Pluto turns retrograde will have no retrograde planets. When we have a planet that’s in retrograde motion, the influence of that planet tends to be hindered somewhat, it tends to be more subtle, it can sometimes cause us to look backwards and have to redo something from the past. We’re very familiar with Mercury retrograde where we have to do that four times a year. It’s very rare for there to be no planets retrograde. And that suggests that right now, the energies are pretty free to move ahead as […]

Let your inner light shine on the Leo Full Moon, February 9 2020

Leo Full MoonThe Leo Full Moon (February 9, 2020 at 2:33 am EST) brings an opportunity to shine with the brilliance of our best selves and emerge from the darkness of the conjunction of Saturn to Pluto which weighed down the beginning of the month. The sign of Leo is majestic and creative, always seeking ways to shine and express the uniqueness of the Self, and in this Full Moon the Moon is aided by a trine to Mars in Sagittarius which helps to energize and amplify the fire of Leo to burn away any debris of darkness that may suppress our ability to shine our inner light with love and an open heart.

As in every Full Moon, the Moon here in Leo is opposite the Sun which is in Aquarius., but what makes the Leo Full Moon different is that the Moon is in the sign of the Sun (Leo is ruled by the Sun). So even though we have the opposition, there is also a linkage between the Sun and Moon that unites the conscious self (Sun) with the lunar instincts and emotional power.

Venus (relationships, attraction) has just moved into Aries where it carries a more fiery temperament, and that has amplified the influence of fire in the planetary spheres.  From December and January’s Capricornian influence on duty and responsibility, we are shifting to a more self-oriented focus that emphasizes desire and action over structure and planning.  There is some danger here that all of this fire can result in hasty decisions and actions that fail to take into account the unintended consequences that may result.  Our relationships could be damaged in the crossfire, as shown by a conjunction from Venus to Chiron (wounding and […]

Astrological forecast for April 15th-30th 2019 including the Libra Full Moon

There’s a lot of planetary energies during this period, with three planetary bodies changing signs and two changing direction, as well as a Full Moon!  Read on for all of the details… (dates refer to the Eastern time zone)

Saturn and Pluto turn retrograde. Towards the end of April both Saturn and Pluto will turn retrograde, meaning their apparent motion as we observe the planets will appear to move backwards.  These planetary shifts from retrograde to direct motion mark shifts in direction of focus – the retrograde periods help us to look back into the past and see what is unfinished or what needs to be recreated in order to more fully serve us in the future. Then when a planet turns direct again we are able to make forward strides more effectively.  Saturn and Pluto are preparing for that retrograde turn, they are at a virtual standstill and their influence is more powerful – especially if these planets are hitting sensitive points in your own natal chart (between 18 and 25 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries).  Pluto turns retrograde on April 24th and Saturn turns retrograde on April 29th.

Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (creative destruction) are at their closest point now until they collide in their official conjunction in January of 2020.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn. They are aligned with the South Node of the past, denoting that […]
