Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the sign of Aries on the 2nd of May.
In Aries, Venus is in her mythical lover’s daytime den (her night cave is in Scorpio, the other Mars’ ruled sign).
Venus in Aries is full of bravado, actually she always gets what she wants in any sign, but 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.
Mars is transiting the sign of Pisces where Venus has her exaltation, Mars might want her badly but unfortunately being in the sign preceding Aries where Venus has just entered, they can’t see each other! So, for Mars, it’s only an illusion!
