• VENUS IN PISCES 26-27 JANUARY 2023

    VENUS IN PISCES  In love with love On the 26-27 of January (depending on where you are in the world), Venus, the planet of love, romance, harmony and values, glides into the sign of Pisces, the sign of its exaltation, ruled traditionally by Jupiter and where Neptune, modern co-ruler of Pisces, has been transiting since April 2011. On the 15th of February (a day after Valentine’s Day) Venus and Neptune will be cuddling up real close (24°04’ Pisces in longitude and also tightly parallel by declination). What might that mean? That we may be lost in a realm of fantasy, washed [...]

    VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS 2-3 JANUARY 2023

    VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS After a spell in serious, practical Capricorn, Venus enters the cool, collected and independent sign of Aquarius. In this sign Venus wants the liberty to come and go as it pleases but this doesn’t necessarily mean unfaithfulness, just that equal rights and a seemingly no-strings-attached attitude need to be maintained for relationships to function. It’s the Venus placement par excellence for bed-buddies in a mix-and-match of friends becoming lovers and vice versa since Venus here is rather emotionally distant and has an attitude for open and unconventional [...]

    VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN ON 9-10 DECEMBER 2022

    VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN From frivolous and gaudy to self-possessed and distinct. Social propriety and etiquette, at least on a public level, mean a lot to this rather ambitious placement for Venus, less so perhaps in the bedroom, but that is a side that Venus Capricorn would prefer to keep private! Venus’s contours are finely chiselled and with a distinct “no frills attached” attitude in this serious sign. Ambition is often part of the picture too. Although in daytime triplicity and in its own term from 0-5°59’ this nevertheless doesn’t seem to be the best placement for a [...]

    VENUS ENTERS SAGITTARIUS ON 15-16 NOVEMBER 2022

    VENUS ENTERS SAGITTARIUS After approximately twenty-days stay in Scorpio’s deep and murky waters Venus now enters the more free-wheeling sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and this rather over-optimistic planet might induce Venus to yearn ecstasy in some form, especially during the days when it will be in a square aspect to transiting Neptune in dreamy Pisces (December 3-4). Rules often also mean a lot to Venus in this sign, inviting others to follow our rules as we preach what we often don’t practice may therefore be another way of expressing itself...this trait [...]

    NEW MOON IN LIBRA 16 OCTOBER 2020

    forget love and peace…. The first of six New Moons at 23° of their relative signs. This New Moon will take place at 23°53’ Libra (antiscion 6°07’ Pisces) and will be squaring Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, now all direct, in Capricorn, it will also still be in orb of an opposition to Mars retrograde in Aries, thus forming a Cardinal T-square aspect. The lunation is also in tight separating orb to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January again re-activating this degree and its consequences. Libra brings to mind the usual Venus topics with a very harmonious nuance. So, we could [...]

    NEW MOON IN LEO 18-19 AUGUST 2020

    Saturn’s influence is still hard to ignore… The New Moon will occur at 26°35’ Leo (antiscion 3°35’ Taurus) and will form a partile quincunx aspect to Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. Quincunxes are aspects of tension rather than of action and this one has a 6th house flavour to it (Saturn is 6 houses after the New Moon by sign), hinting at health issues and daily grind, so, again we have a Saturn influence in a monthly lunation as for the past four. The tension aspect of the quincunx is usually released by a transiting planet passing over the degree of the aspect and the release[...]

    VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS ON 2ND MARCH 2019

    From serious and ambitious to friendly and gregarious. Venus in the sign of Aquarius values fairness and equal rights but can also be superficial and apparently lacking in real feelings but perhaps a bit of “distance” will do us all some good! The only dated to watch until 28th March when Venus enters Pisces: 21st March when Venus squares Mars (23°30’ Aquarius-Taurus) Artwork: myskypie2019
