Venus is a very important planet in my chart so I’ve been paying attention ever since Venus moved into Libra on August 6 and entered into the cardinal T-square fray. The lovely one promptly opposed Uranus and conjoined Saturn, then opposed Jupiter and squared Pluto.
The tension of the last few weeks living under the influence of intense cardinal energy broke for me when the Moon moved into Cancer creating a Grand Cross bringing the energy into balance. Venus conjoining Saturn slowed things down even further but the opposition to Jupiter and square to Pluto ratcheted my stress levels up again. ***sigh***
Not only does Venus rule my Sun and Moon but also my sixth and seventh houses, both with Taurus on the cusp (using Koch houses). Between Saturn in Libra pretty much demanding moderation and Taurus on the sixth giving me a need for stable, daily routines, so the influx of company over the past month and living with an edgy Aries partner has not been easy. The icing on the cake has been spending a great deal of time getting my computer stabilized and working properly over the course of the past week. Like many others, I will be delighted to see the cardinal T-square slip away and hopefully allow the tempo to slow some.
Transiting Pluto is sitting in my second house squaring Venus conjoining Saturn in my tenth and I am definitely feeling the need to clean up my act when it comes to my work environment. One of the things I’m considering to get my computer back up to snuff is backing up the contents of my main drive and then wiping it clean back to the factory defaults. Yeah . . . MAJOR house cleaning! Getting rid of corrupted files and doing clean installs of the programs I use is bound to improve performance as well as reduce the possibility of more problems. This also fits in with Mercury in Virgo passing back and forth over my Midheaven and tenth house for the next month as it goes retrograde. “Do overs” in great detail! 😀
Venus is just about to enter my eleventh house along with Mars in Libra (Saturn won’t make it until September). I usually enjoy Venus transits to my Libra planets, especially by conjunction. A few kisses from the Goddess would be most welcome . . . before Saturn comes along. Hah!
How are others navigating this intense time period?
