Venus on Fire
Do you know what your Venus sign is? This is the sign that Venus was in at the time of your birth. You can go to Foxy Astrology and create your birth chart to find this placement. Every eight years we experience a Venus Return, which is when transiting Venus returns to the same place in the sky where it was when you were born.
Because of the shape of Venus’s orbit, it is probably pretty close to your Sun sign — usually never more than one or two signs away. If you have Venus conjunct or within the same sign as your Sun, then you are almost guaranteed to possess a beautiful soul; one that gives you that “special something” that folks just can’t put their finger on. Whatever “it” is… you most likely have “it!”
The relationship between your Venus and your Sun can tell a lot about who and what attracts you. Venus is the ruler of the things we love and value. If Venus comes before your Sun in your natal chart then she is expressed as the ‘Morning Star’ and you are more direct in your relationships. You might prefer getting straight to business and save the foreplay for another day. If Venus comes after your Sun, then she takes on the guise of the ‘Evening Star’ and as such, prefers to wait for the object of her desire to make the first moves. This is the signature of a person that likes to be romanced and enjoys the build-up before the pay-off.
Full Moon in Libra
March 28 is the Full Moon at 8 degrees and 18 minutes of Libra, but opposing this celestial body is a hella stellium (three or more celestial objects in a sign or house) in Aries. This cadre of celestial combustion consists of: Kassandra, the Sun, Chiron, and Venus. Let’s break this down:
- Kassandra is the quintessential victim of the narcissist but possesses the gift of premonition;
- The Sun represents our true self — our ego;
- Chiron represents our wound; and
- Venus represents the things that we love and value.
Theses influences will all be conjunct in Aries — the first sign and of the zodiac — representing the self. The Full moon will be working on finding equilibrium in Libra. Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and represents your relationship to others. Full Moons are a time of release and this could be a fantastic opportunity for profound healing; especially around issues from early life that might still be holding you back.
The work you do at this time is crucial to moving forward. Only a few weeks away is the New Moon in Aries and this will be time to test out this Full Moon recalibration.
New Moon in Aries
This is really the beginning of the end of old patterns and is important as we move into April. We find yet another stellium at the end of Aries, during the Aries New Moon (4/11) with the Sun conjunct the Moon at 22 degrees and 24 minutes of Aries. Ceres will be at the front of this divine feminine renewal, reminding us of what we need to nourish ourselves. Venus will continue traveling with the Sun, but will be joining Eris — the goddess of discord — who reminds us to do just a tiny bit of harm, and take no sh*t.
Look as see what sign and house your natal Venus is in and use the energy of these two Moons to reevaluate how that is changing. Venus will help you determine what you need to nourish yourself now. This New Moon presents us with a lot of divine feminine energy, but instead of a traditional soft and ladylike ambience, I think this is an opportunity to turn your engines up to 11 and let them burn brightly in a new way.
