The Magic of Venus in January 2023 - Venus In Aquarius

The Magic of Venus in January 2023 - Venus In Aquarius

Venus leaves its stay in pragmatic and studied Capricorn 8:09 pm PST on January 2 and enters idealistic and detached Aquarius, where it stays until it enters Pisces, its sign of exaltation, promising more empathy, depth, and compassion in our Venus experience beginning January 26. So until then, what does Venus’ passage through Aquarius in January hold for all of us?

This brings the next shift in the energy of planets and houses we have in Taurus and Libra. Venus will occupy Aquarius from now through January 26, bringing the love of idealism, a greater good for a greater number, and all things progressive which further group evolution. Venus in this sign is an idealist who sees a better way and is the ultimate ruler of their realm.

Aquarius is an Air sign which is a very favorable element for Venus because of its rulership of Libra. While Aquarius is frictional to its Taurus nature, it is also agreeable with its Fixity. In Aquarius, it harmonizes with planets in the Air and Fire signs, and brings those with Venus in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius to a turning point in their relationships.

Venus in Aquarius is in its own 5th sign, as per its rulership of Libra, and in its own 10th sign, as per its rulership of Taurus. In its own 5th it expresses its sense of fairness, justice, and balance, and in its own 10th, fulfills its values and how to use what we have to secure our public persona or reputation.

It should be good for people with Sun or Moon in Aquarius, because 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 careful and pragmatic way of being with others of Capricorn into a more detached, friendly, and altruistic way of being with others, take the cue and re-shape your likes and expression accordingly.

Venus in Aquarius values the ability to relate to others at a higher, or perhaps more formal or refined way of interacting coupled with idealism and genuine friendliness. Value shared ideals, value friendships, value a higher vision, value managing resources and people wisely, and value your ability to relate to others with genuine dispassion.

Mercury and Venus In An Earth Dance With Each Other

At this point, Venus is in front of the Sun for many months to come until Venus’ Inferior conjunction with the Sun at 21 Leo in August 2023. That means Venus continues to act as a “herald” for our Solar Capricorn experience which began at the Solstice on December 21. It has finally begun to pull away from its many weeks’ long conjunction with Mercury, having made its second conjunction at 25 Capricorn just as Mercury went stationary retrograde December 29. These conjunctions blend the rulership energy of our Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, and Libra sectors.

We had the first of three Mercury conjunctions with Venus in an 8 month period on November 21 at 8 Sagittarius. This was the second, culminating on December 29 when they conjuncted at 25 Capricorn. This has begun to activate a “looking back” at all which has developed since the Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions of 2020, giving new understanding via a new way of viewing all which has died or sprouted since then. As Venus is involved, we should be able to get a new appreciation of what has opened and/or closed since then.

The third conjunction, in a strange twist, happens at 29 Leo in late July just after Venus goes stationary retrograde on that degree. So the Capricorn conjunction takes place as Mercury is SRX and Venus is direct, whereas the Leo conjunction takes place as Venus is SRX and Mercury is direct.

A Brief Look at How We Got Here

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, 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, and solves information puzzles by seeing ways to put them together. We learned new Venusian likes, values, and the social promise in Gemini.

Venus then moved through Cancer between late July through mid-August, giving opportunities to secure what nurtured us and allowed us to have deeper relationships. Venus in Cancer loves deep, tender connections 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.

The 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. In Scorpio, Venus’ reorients our social instincts toward a deeper connection with self and others, and a greater intensity and scrutiny of all our interactions with the world.

We began a new pulse with Venus in Sagittarius from mid-November to the second week of December, when it entered Capricorn. Venus in Sagittarius brings openness and a willingness to dance with possibilities, appreciating the spaces which allow us freedom to explore each other, and seeing how what we value feeds our future or not. It values freedom and 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. It then takes those truths and potential futures and organizes values and interactions into forms of personal power in Capricorn. That love of propriety and maturity in relationships naturally lead us to see our power in the broader context of society.

From Here We Dance On

Venus’ entry into Aquarius is the gateway to a new Venusian experience which will lead us to a greater appreciation and value for our ability to make a greater contribution to others or society as a whole, with an ease of maturity and an ability to feel a part of a greater group contribution. Enjoy Venus in an Air sign, since it brings lightness and brightness to our interactions, and even a broader view of how we can use what we have to contribute to a better future. With Venus in Aquarius, we learn to enjoy being part of a larger whole.

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. Venus in Sagittarius taught us about how much we value freedom and the ability to like a wider scope of possibilities. Venus in Capricorn taught us about the value of personal power and more mature interactions. We now get to craft our Venusian responses to enjoy more of a sense of being part of a greater group work. By the end of January, Venus will enter Pisces, the sign of its exaltation, where we get a renewed swim in the ocean of infinite compassion.

The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames

Each transit Venus makes through a sign adds to our Venusian experience, enabling us to shape our likes and affections toward newer and better values and relationships. 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!)
