Tonight, into tomorrow Mars and Venus, the archetypal lovers, conjoin at 0° Aquarius. These two planets have been traveling closely together for the past month in the sign of Capricorn having had an exact conjunction on February 16.
The Capricorn pile up recently has seen a tremendous amount of break down, break up and purging of structures that have reached their limit in terms of productivity on a personal and collective level. Zero degrees Aquarius is the birth of something new and hopeful for the future. There are new horizons to explore full of innovation, unknown technological advancement and intellectual enlightenment.
From the Venusian perspective this conjunction has a great deal to do with money, values and relationships while Mars supplies courage, assertion, ambition for work productivity along with the energy and drive to get what you want. In simplistic terms Venus represents what we want in terms of earthly pleasure, goals and delight and Mars represents how we go about getting what we want on the Earth planet. This combination of energies is very much associated with creative work and projects as well as marriage, sex and partnerships of all kinds that require some sort of intimacy or collaboration. The love planets in Aquarius have a democratic touch and there is the desire in this sign for freedom, equality and personal liberty.
Our deeply held system of values is in the process of changing and evolving. Aquarius is forward thinking and always looks towards the future as it thrives to attain a more utopian reality if possible. Aquarius asks, what are the possibilities for a brighter future, and what new discoveries can be made to fee us from shackles, chains and bondage? The negative side of Aquarius is rigid, group mentality thinking. The kind of thinking that says if you don’t believe what I believe then I will eject you from the group and ostracize you until you bend to the group thinking. It’s a rigid and fixed sign and at its worst can divorce, separate, castrate and behead. At its best it enlightens and brings the promethean procreative energy that is divinely inspired from the Gods and Goddesses. Everything happens in a polarity, and you’ll see both types of energies playing out on the world stage as well as in your personal life. What side will you take, and what team will you play on? Will you follow the mass mentality, or will you follow your own voice regardless of the pressures put on you? For most of us it will be a mixed answer.
It’s extremely important when planets cross the 0° Aquarius point as trigger points for events. This is because Jupiter and Saturn conjoined at this point on 12/21/20; the time the Covid Vaccine was introduced. This point represents a great deal about our hope for the future as well as starting a new 20 year global and national economic cycle. Therefore, whenever other planets hit this sensitive degree, it will further enlighten and enhance what this story represents in your life as well as the world based on the seeds planted in late 2020.
We will have to watch with great awareness what happens when Pluto crosses this degree for the first time on March 23, 2023. That can be an extremely problematic and eruptive time in the world. Pluto not only will be crossing this sensitive degree, but he’ll be leaving Capricorn. Whenever Pluto enters a new sign there are major evolutionary changes in the world based upon what that sign represents. That first year of the ingress announces what the major themes will be in a problematic and chaotic way. The political and technological world will be hit hard along with other Aquarian themes such as friendship, democracy, humanitarianism and how we as a people monitor our surveillance activities. Vladimir Putin has just invaded Ukraine and Pluto entering Aquarius can be very disruptive in transforming the current structures and creating a new world order. I’m not sure how this will all play out but don’t forget that Aquarius is the sign of revolutions motivated by making infrastructure shifts in political systems. Communism, Capitalism, Fascism and Plutocracy are the flip sides of the same coin.
It’s important to track these changes carefully in your own personal life. Reflect back to late December 2020 leading into early 2021 as Saturn/Jupiter set the stage at 0° Aquarius, pay attention right now and the coming days and week as Mar/Venus cross the degree and then most importantly when Pluto, lord of darkness and intense, eruptive, volcanic transformation reaches that degree in March 2023. You can also track the monthly movement of the Moon as she passes through the sign of Aquarius to see how that affects your mood.
For the present try to tap into the creative possibilities and enlightenment of the Venus/Mars conjunction. It’s a great time to launch new projects, make new connections and form new partnerships. Break out of old ruts and into something exciting, new and innovative.
