Friday, January 28. Friday belongs to Venus so it’s propitious to talk about this planet once again as it is stationing direct tomorrow at 11° Capricorn. Just because the planet of love, marriage, partnership, money, values, pleasure, art, beauty, peace, harmony and social connection is moving forward tomorrow does not mean everything will suddenly be hunky dory in whatever area of life Venus has been doing a major overhaul and transformation. This overhaul and transformation that has been occurring for everyone in varying degrees since mid-November of 2021 is still in a transformative process. The final reckoning (whether good, bad or indifferent) won’t be until she crosses paths with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, for the last time of this retrograde period on March 3. That’s also around the time she’ll join forces with her astrological lover Mars to from a new partnership and beginning.
Therefore, you can expect another month of hard work and labor in making the necessary structural changes to the Venus in Capricorn areas of your life. There remains a continuation in the process of terminating old contracts and beginning new ones. That may also be a time when you receive a payoff of some kind.
Remember you’re still confronting the past in order to learn from it and resolve issues. Many are confronting exes of all kinds: ex-lovers, ex-financial issues, ex-friends, ex-partners, ex-creative projects, ex-pleasures. I think you get the idea. There are many people and situations dying both literally and psychologically. The confrontation with the past is to learn lessons from it, reincorporate it and move forward. Some of the confrontations and lessons are painful but all of them are there gain some wisdom and move on with life and living.
March will be a forward movement but slowly and cautiously. Venus may be finished with Pluto at that point but from March 3 through March 30 she will be besieged by Mars and Saturn, the two malefics who will do everything in their power to block Venus from achieving her goals. Mars and Saturn will say to Venus, “You may have discovered a new way to express your Venusian ideals but are you ready to do the necessary hard work and labor in the material world to manifest the new image of love, money, values, art, relationship and pleasure? You can’t be a lazy ass bitch and expect to be spoiled and pampered by others. You must toughen up be willing to struggle, assert ambition with a plan and be able to fight hard and long for what you want and know when to compromise and when not to compromise.” Venus wants what she wants when she wants it, but Mars and Saturn will not allow that. They will force her to toe the line, but the tricky question is, will your Venus buckle under the pressure or shape up and grow a tougher outer layer of skin?
An example of how to work with this process on more detailed level would be someone with the retrograde Venus in Capricorn in the third house. The restructuring and transformational process may have to do with a relationship with a sibling. It also may pertain to a writing project from the past that comes back into your life in order to pick up where you left off. It can also have to do with teaching and education. Perhaps the way you deal with local commuting due to the change in status of a relationship with a loved one like an ailing mother whom you love that requires you to visit more via the use of train, car or other local transportation.
Astrology is a complex and yet simple tool to unravel meaning. You just have to know what the meanings of the planets, signs and houses are.
