Venus is getting a lot of action at the tail end of this week and into this weekend, stirring up a lot of energy surrounding relationships, finances and material matters. On Thursday, Venus came into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius while sitting right in the middle of the Uranus-Eris conjunction— revealing things we don’t necessarily want to see about our relationships and financial situations and prompting us all to take calculated risks in order to resolve power struggles and restore balance moving forward. This energy continues into Saturday with Venus making it’s exact conjunction with Uranus while coming into trine with the North Node in Leo. This aspect brings flashes of insight and fated circumstances that serve to guide us toward the right relationships, which will help to move us into a more courageous and heart-centered path.
Friday (6/2): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course (VOC) in Virgo from 2:53pm-5:08pm MST when it moves into the beautiful and balanced sign of Libra.
Saturday (6/3): We have a lot going on in the skies today! Venus in Aries will come into an exact conjunction with Uranus today, bringing unexpected events surrounding relationships up to the surface. Uranus is the great disrupter and can cause disturbance to the balance and harmony that Venus desires. This disruption may come in the form of chaotic circumstances or unexpected insights, and although this aspect may leave some of us feeling frustrated and tense, for the most part I see this transit as bringing many benefits. Venus is still in close trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, an aspect that came exact on Thursday of this week, grounding the energy and adding a layer of stability integrity into the mix. Venus conjunct Uranus requires that we make some sort of change involving our close partnerships, romantic and otherwise, and so long as we are thinking things through and acting in integrity, the changes we make at this time can yield very positive results.
In addition to her conjunction with Uranus, Venus will be coming into a harmonious trine with the North Node bringing new, very fated and destined relationships into our world. As with any transit involving the Lunar Nodes, pay close attention to messages and insights that come up today (especially with Uranus in the mix) as the circumstances that arise are meant to guide us in the direction of a new, more courageous path. Now is a time to connect from the heart and share our passions and creativity with the people we love most.
We have another powerful, beneficial aspect today with the Sun in Gemini coming into a beautiful trine with expansive and optimistic Jupiter in Libra. Under the influence of the Sun and Jupiter, we can feel much more confident and self-assured. We feel much lighter, more jovial and expansive when Jupiter comes into positive aspect with the Sun. Now is an excellent time to take off and have an adventure, communicate and socialize, and to go out and be seen!
Sunday (6/4): Today the Sun in Gemini comes into square with mystical Neptune in watery, foggy Pisces. While Jupiter’s trine with the Sun has us feeling confident and full of optimism, the influence of this hard aspect from Neptune can cause us to become delusional about our abilities. We are more prone to self-deception and delusional behavior under this influence as Neptune causes us to want to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Neptune’s square to the Sun also makes us more susceptible to lies and deception from others. Although things may feel very positive and loving in the moment, be wary of offers and invitations that feel too good to be true as things may go south very quickly once this transit passes.
Finally, Mars moves from Gemini into the watery, emotional sign of Cancer today. Water signs are contradictory to the fiery nature of Mars and tend to slow down our ambitions and impetus to act. Those of us who are ruled by Mars (Aries and Scorpio Rising and Sun signs) may feel our willpower start to fizzle out once this transit takes hold. On the positive side, Mars in Cancer invites us to take action from a place of intuitive and emotional understanding. We are more inclined to nurture and be nurtured under this influence. People become much more emotionally and physically supportive and feel driven to tend to their comfort zones at this time. This is an excellent time to start projects related to the home, family and real estate and to take the initiative to begin a new self-care routine.
