Sometimes fantastic results from the synergy when two not-so-great things combine, or combine under awkward circumstances. Case in point: over the next week or so you can make some amazing alchemy happen in your love life thanks to Venus in Scorpio square Mars in Leo. The square is in effect now, and comes to a peak just in time for next weekend.
Venus in Scorpio has a reputation for being a “debilitated” placement… The Goddess Of Love, allegedly, is too much of a lady for hanging out in the tawdry dive bar of Scorpio. This is, of course, not only a misinterpretation of Venus’ ability to get dirty with it, but also a tragic under-appreciation of the complex charms of a dive bar.
Mars in Leo isn’t “debilitated,” but it comes with its issues too. An ego-driven placement (ruled by the Sun, your Ego) make for some really unpleasant and dramatic flare-ups, sometimes when and where you least expect it.
But the synergy created when these two placements hook up via the square aspect can create something new and unique… and potentially pretty wonderful too. As the time-honored traditions of astrology went, griping about Venus in Scorpio may have been de rigeur… but we’re all adults now and can be a little more honest about the joys of Working The Sexy. And let’s be honest here: the spiciness of Scorpio and the drama of Leo can do wonders together… especially when combined with the planets of Love and Sex.
So if there are any blockages or difficulties or obstacles in your love life, take advantage of the change in astrological weather blowing in during the next week or so… and shake your groove thing!
Oh, and speaking of “combining things”…
