Venus In Scorpio, Mars In Leo: Shake Your Groove Thing!

keep-calm-and-shake-your-groove-thing-2You know that commercial where chocolate accidentally gets mixed in with someone’s peanut butter — you know, “two great things that go better together”? That’s what we call “synergy.”

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”

Venus in Pisces, Mars in Virgo: Pinky And The Brain Try Internet Dating



(Venus in Pisces is considered to be an “exalted” placement: full of open-hearted non-judgmental love and willingness to express it. Mars in Virgo is looking to win by analyzing the details. The two positions are opposite each other, and Venus opposition Mars is in full effect now.)

***

(SCENE: Late night at Acme Laboratories. In a darkened corner two laboratory mice in a cage are huddled over a tiny little computer, checking out a dating site.)

PINKY: Oy, what about this one, Brain? She seems really nice, and oh look… she likes long walks! That could come in handy. Narf!

BRAIN: Don’t be ridiculous, Pinky. Pay attention to the rest of her ad. “Must be goal-oriented and self sufficient.”

PINKY: Well, that’s you, isn’t it?

BRAIN: That’s a code-phrase for “she’s a gold-digger” Pinky. You know I can’t touch my savings. I need it for a new Death Ray!

PINKY: Oh, okay. Hey, look at this ad! She says she’s easygoing and appreciates being able to relax with a loved one over a glass of fine wine!

BRAIN: She has low standards and a drinking problem. Next!

PINKY: Well, SurferGirl67 likes classical music like you do…

BRAIN: I hate what she’s done with her hair.

PINKY: This one has a fondness for animals…

BRAIN: I am an animal! She’d never be faithful!

PINKY: SunshineLover81 enjoys spending time on the beach and —

BRAIN: –and is an unmotivated skin-cancer candidate.

PINKY: AudreyJ has loved and lost but is ready to try again…

BRAIN: Too many issues with her ex.

PINKY: JJLaRue says she’s wild, spontaneous, and affectionate…

BRAIN: Tramp.

PINKY: IowaHomegirl wants a committed relationship that lines up with her values…

BRAIN: Prude.

PINKY: Narf! You aren’t making this easy, Brain! You’re analyzing everything to death!

BRAIN: (Turns off computer and walks to the edge of the cage, stares off into the distance) Enough of this foolishness! You know what we’re going to do tonight, Pinky?

PINKY: Go out and try to find someone in person, so we can see them for who they really are instead of dismissing them offhandedly based on a few lines of type and a couple of pictures?

BRAIN: No Pinky. We’re going to try to take over the world with my army of remote controlled pigeons I’ve trained to poop on anyone whop dares challenge our dominance. It’s a much more practical and achievable goal.

PINKY: (sighs) I’m lonely.

BRAIN: Shut up Pinky.

Astro-Singalong: Full Moon In Aquarius, Jupiter And Uranus Opposing Mars And Saturn

(Catch me at Tedda Hughes Gallery tonight, 7:30 to 9, 1623 Polk Street, San Francisco!)

When you were young and your heart was an open book
You used to say life and let live
(you know you did, you know you did you know you did)
But in this ever changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die


Live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die


What does it matter to ya?
When you got a job to do
You gotta do it well
You gotta give the other fellow hell


When you were young and your heart was an open book
You used to say life and let life
(you know you did, you know you did you know you did)
But in this ever changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry…


-Paul McCartney & Wings, “Live And Let Die”

Astro-Singalong: Mars In Capricorn, Presented With A Challenge

I am the stone that the builder refused
I am the visual,
the inspiration,
that made lady sing the blues

I’m the spark that makes your idea bright
the same spark
that lights the dark
so that you can know your left from your right

I am the ballot in your box
the bullet in the gun
that inner glow
that lets you know
to call your brother “son”

The story that just begun
the promise of what’s to come
and im’ma remain a soldier
til’ the war is won (won)

chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop

Mars In Virgo: Let’s Trim Our Hair In Accordance With The Socialist Lifestyle!

We create our own dramas for our own amusement, and frequently participate in the dramas of others for the same reason. This is one of the reasons why television is so popular. It’s that time of year where many TV series are winding up, and this can leave people a little restless, having to wait months to find out what their favorite characters will do next. It’s enough to make a person want to create a little drama in their own story lines to fill in the gap.

Astrologically, Mars is often the source of interpersonal drama, and Mars is in Virgo now (where it will remain until the end of July). This placement is exacting, precise, and (when it knows what it wants) is not afraid to use tactics like pickiness, nagging, and sharp words to get its way, even when it isn’t being direct and exact as to what its actual needs are. That’s the tone Mars is bringing to many interpersonal squabbles of late.
