The Daily Sky: Venus Enters Capricorn

venus in capricorn

Venus in Capricorn knows how to save money on her wardrobe budget, yet still look good.

There comes a time when a girl’s just gotta settle down. Today, Venus enters Capricorn after her long and often reckless jaunt through Sagittarius. During that time, Sagittarius’ ruler Jupiter was in its strongest placement — Cancer, a Water Sign — so romantic impulses were pretty strong and steady despite Sag’s reputation for keeping it light and keeping it moving.

In Capricorn, Venus is ruled by Saturn… and now Saturn is in Scorpio, another Water Sign. Emotional intensities are still high in love relationships and in material matters, but now the tone shifts to more depth and intensity. If you found someone to share a good time with in the last four weeks, expect things to be a little more serious. If your money was flying out the window during that time, expect to get a handle on things… or else your financial circumstances may tighten their grip on you, instead.

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”

The Daily Sky: Venus Enters Taurus

One day the most beautiful woman any of the regulars at Sully’s Bar had ever seen walked in off the street and sat down for a drink. She smiled demurely at each of them as she caught the regulars one by one, staring at her. She was radiant. The multicolored lighting from the broken jukebox lit the highlights in her hair. It was if a UFO had landed and deposited an ancient fertility Goddess at Sully’s Bar for a Heineken, and to deliver the promise of Eternal Love.

The men all sat there, mesmerized. The each reveled in their own private fantasies… not merely sexual, but more. Somehow this incredible dame carried with her the promise of more. A happy life. A family. Love and acceptance and warmth and home-cooked meals and holding hands and laughing together over small things and epic bouts of love-making.

In fact, they all sat there dreaming of their new lives with their new love until May 9th, when she smiled and left. Afterwards, much sadness and regret ensued.

Venus in Taurus is powerful… but you have to DO something with it!

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.

Eight Minutes Of Venus In Pisces

Whenever Venus enters Pisces… the sign of it’s “exaltation”… it’s time for the astrology bloggers to bust out the synonyms for “depth” and “compassion” and “confusion” and…

Why not just watch an 8 minute video that says and shows everything you need to know about Venus in Pisces, without actually spelling it out… which is kinda Piscean, if you think about it…

“To what end be Death, if not for Love?” Wow, look at all the colors! Hey, why is everyone dancing? Why am I dancing? “And what be life, if not for Love?” Holy cow, you’re beautiful! “Say a hundred things, should you wish, the meaning still remains the same.” I think I’m in love with you. “Who has ever known what Love is, and yet EVERYONE knows what Love is.” Hey… is that a Product Placement? I know I shouldn’t, but I’m so thirsty and this is delicious! “A garden of roses, love; strewn with thorns too, is love.” I think I’m in love with you too. Hey, where did you go…?

Just put the astrology texts down for eight minutes and watch this instead. It will tell you everything Venus in Pisces wants you to know, and in far better style than I could ever muster. Hope you don’t mind subtitles.

When Your Partner’s Saturn Squares Your Venus

Anyone who has had a relationship can tell you that no relationship is perfect. We’re human, and the complexities of our birth charts reflect that. How many times have you heard a friend (or yourself) say something like this at the beginning of a relationship…
“Oh, it’s sooooo adorable when you fall asleep and start snoring!”
And then, by the end of the relationship, you hear/say…
“If I lose one more night of sleep to your snoring, I’m going to kill you!”
Any relationship that lasts longer than five minutes has to both value the positives each person brings to it, and work with (or ignore) the negatives. Any theoretical long-term relationship that doesn’t have to follow that basic principle must, sadly, await further advances in robotics. And when an astrologer, or an astrology dating site, makes a pronouncement as to whether a relationship is a “good” idea or a “bad” one has to take this into consideration.
Case in point: in most references, you’ll see that if Person A’s Venus is squared by Person B’s Saturn, the relationship is likely to either be a non-starter, or simply a bad idea. The truth is, though, that if there are enough “good” aspects between the two people, there is a good chance the relationship will be “good.” And, if the two people are mindful of the relationship, there’s always opportunities to work around that particular “bad” aspect.
