Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the sign of Aries on the 7th of February this year.
In Aries, Venus is in her mythical lover’s den (one of them, the other being in Scorpio).
Venus in Aries is full of bravado, actually she always gets what she wants in any sign, but her she’s more open and adventurous in Aries, sexual, but perhaps not sensuous, and certainly not “comfy” here. Aries and Scorpio are in fact the signs where Venus is in her detriment, where she is at least at ease in her surroundings.
So, since Venus deals with values of some kind we might want to acknowledge that these include our self-esteem too.
As Robert Glasscock puts it in the book “Planets”, edited by McEvers; “Venus rules the talent we believe we possess or don’t possess if challenged. Talent is the old word for money. Venus’s sign and house position show the kinds of talents we have and where we are meant to express them.”
“If you do not love me I shall not be loved If I do not love you I shall not love.” S. Beckett
