Venus leaves its “exile” in intensely magnetic Scorpio at 10:09 pm PST on November 15 and enters adventurous, expansive Sagittarius, where it stays until it enters pragmatic and studied Capricorn on December 9. What does Venus’ passage through Sagittarius hold for all of us?
To give a brief recap of what we’ve been through since April, while Venus in Pisces feels everything there is to feel, and Venus in Aries feels only what is immediate and passing, leaping forward into relationships and quick to like and “unlike” things, Venus in Taurus savors each moment. Venus in Taurus likes what it likes and is not inclined to try new things unless they’re easy and pleasant. While Venus in Aries is highly agitated, Venus in Taurus likes comfort and ease. We experienced Venus in Aries and Taurus in May, and June.
When Venus was in Gemini late June through late July it began a new “pulse,” and we experienced a more curious, playful, open and adaptable approach to our likes, loves, and fancies. Venus in Gemini gives a “love of learning,” a love of exploring all the ideas there are to explore which capture the imagination. It is good with words and ideas, constantly solving the infinite puzzles of information and how to put it together. We learned new Venusian likes, values, and the social promise in Gemini, and in Cancer got to secure what nurtured us and allowed us to have deeper relationships.
Venus in Cancer (late July through mid-August) loves a deep, tender connection with people and experience. While it is VERY sensitive, it is also the most caring placement for Venus, because it rules Taurus, the exaltation of the Moon. The Moon does well in Venus signs, and Venus does well in Lunar signs (I include Leo, as the Moon is the spiritual ruler of Leo, as I explain in Saturn, Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend.
Venus in Leo began a new pulse mid-August through early September, and took the introversion and sensitivity of Cancer and turned it outward in creative and dramatic forms of expression. Venus in Virgo for almost all of September completed this dual pulse by learning to value expressing “significant form” and “divine Discernment.” Leo gave us a new enthusiasm and sense of heartfelt liking and loving of things and people, and Virgo helped us find the place and function of each detail in our lives.
This next dual pulse began when Venus entered its home sign of Libra at the end of September. Venus in Libra is said to value and express more balanced, reasoned, beautiful and “symmetric” interactions and experiences. It is interactive, gracious, and wants to make forms more pleasing. It’s just finished its time in Scorpio, where our social instincts were reoriented toward a greater connection with self and others, and a greater intensity and scrutiny of all our interactions with the world.
This brings the next shift in the energy of planets and houses we have in Taurus and Libra. Venus in Sagittarius brings openness and a willingness to dance with abandon to whatever it touches, appreciating the spaces which allow us the freedom to explore each other, and seeing how what we value feeds our future or not. Whereas Venus in Scorpio can be tough because or its relentless scrutiny of others, Sagittarius values freedom and seeking higher, broader truths, whether others agree with them or not. Venus in Sagittarius takes all which was “cocooned” in Scorpio and allows it to fly free.
At this point, Venus is in front of both the Sun and Mercury, and as such is “the herald” for our Sagittarius experience on 2022. While Venus begins our Sag experience with year, we’ll definitely get a new view of all things Sag when Mercury enters on the 17th and begins to form a conjunction with Venus, culminating on the 21st. That will blend the rulership energy of our Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, and Libra sectors using the energy of Sagittarius to launch a new set of cycles in those signs in our charts.
This will be the first of three Mercury conjunctions with Venus in the next 8 months. The second will be at 25 Capricorn in late December, activating the Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions of 2020, with the third at 29 Leo in late July just after Venus goes stationary retrograde on that degree.
Once the Sun joins the Sag parade on November 22, then the action begins! The next day, there’s a New Moon at 2 Sagittarius just as Jupiter, the ruler of Sag, goes stationary direct at 29 Pisces. Then on the 24th, the Moon foreshadows the major oppositions of Mercury and Venus between November 28 and December 1, so slow down and be alert!
Venus in Sagittarius harmonizes with planets in the Fire and Air signs, and brings those with Venus in Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Gemini to a turning point in their relationships. Venus in Sagittarius is in its own 3rd sign, as per its rulership of Libra, and in its own 8th sign, as per its rulership of Taurus. So while it’s in a Mutable Fire sign, that sign is harmonious to its Libra nature, and allows its Taurus side to eliminate all which keeps it from knowing the freedom to dance in the world on its own terms.
It should be good for people with Sun or Moon in Sagittarius, when Venus comes to visit your Lights, you could find yourself beholding something or someone of great beauty or value who can illuminate you or care for you in Venusian ways. Because it is the backdrop to how planets in Taurus and Libra express themselves, if things move away from the stuck or emotionally problematic interactions of Scorpio into a freer way to be with others, take the cue and value the liberating quality of Venus in this sign. Value truth, value the adventure, value the promise, and value your ability to grow into greater spiritual awareness any time you want to dance!
So welcome to the gateway to a new Venusian experience which will lead us to a greater appreciation and value for our ability to grow into greater lives and understanding. Evaluate what offers you a greater adventure, since soon you’ll have to deal with the hard realities and responsibilities which will come with Venus in Capricorn. Still, enjoy the wild ride of Sagittarius, detach from people and things which hold you back, and see a more liberating way to be with others.
Venus in Scorpio taught us about what we can attract and how to do it, as well as what we cannot hold on to because the magnetism is no longer there. By the time Venus enters Capricorn on December 9, we’ll all know a lot more about how much we value freedom, and how we want to craft our Venusian responses to bring us more of a sense of personal power and enjoyment. As our Venus response evolves, we have the capability to enjoy the subtle pleasures in life to the fullest. No longer over-indulgent or self-denying, we can choose what to like and find a rich appreciation for the banquet of life experiences which are ours for the enjoying!
Venus’ duality is Wisdom/Folly. By our Venus responses, we are led out of erroneous values, vanities, and ways of interacting into the wisdom of “Right Relationship.” In esoteric philosophy, Venus is said to be the elder sister of the Earth, so perhaps our Venus shows us how to refine what is of value and leave the superficial and vain imaginings of the ego behind, just as humanity is learning globally at this time in history. Venus is definitely part of the equation in our personal and interpersonal happiness.
Because Venus changing signs shows us our own changing tastes as well as the changing tastes of those around us, you can find out more about Venus in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and all the signs in my new book The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames. It is the most comprehensive book on Venus ever written, and explains why we attract who we do and how to create more satisfying relationships in the future.
This work offers all you could want to know about the power of your inner Venus and how you can make your relationships more fulfilling because you are living a Soul-ful life. You’ll find out about why you like or don’t like people and things, why you’ve attracted who you have in the past and present, and how to make those attractions more aligned with your Soul purpose in the future. You’ll understand why Soul Mates come into our lives, and how to know the difference between a Soul Mate and our Twin Flame.
It has chapters on the qualities of each sign’s natural mate, the qualities of Venus in each sign, Venus retrograde, and when crucial choices and changes are made, affecting who we attract in the future. It was written for both astrologers and lay people, and as it has a thousand gems for better relationships, with self, others, and Source, please consider getting your copy by going to the link above! (And when you’re done, please leave a review on Amazon, since it helps the book and all other books on astrology as well!)
