Venus enters Aquarius early today, where it will transit until January 13th. We move towards more unconventionality, independence, and freedom in our social relationships under this influence. Experimental relationships, entertainment, purchases, and pursuits are especially intriguing now. Allowing one another fuller freedom of expression, and treating others fairly, unselfishly, and impartially, are themes. Our tastes, interests, and pleasures incline towards the avant-garde during this cycle.
Venus forms a semi-square to Neptune tonight, affecting our perception of the value of people and things. There is a tendency to gloss over problems or to see what we want to see, imagining the best or the worst when the truth is somewhere in between. We might have doubts about our lovability and worth or about a relationship, pleasure, or comfort levels. Alternatively, we might go in the other direction and gloss over critical flaws and details. However, Venus heads toward a sextile to Chiron, exact tomorrow morning, and there is a simultaneous drive for intimacy and sharing. We more readily see the beauty in human weaknesses. The Moon spends the day in the sign of Libra, and we’re particularly invested in our relationships, motivated to create a balance.
