For those who are growing weary of Venus in Scorpio’s deep, dark passions we have relief right around the corner when she romps into Sagittarius on October 7. Here Venus is more interested in enjoying life and laughing with her lovers . . . yes, plural because this Venus is slow to commit to one person. Whilst Venus in Sagittarius is not as open minded and experimental as say Venus in Aquarius, she still prefers to steer clear of the deep end Scorpio loves so much.
This year’s journey through Sagittarius begins with a seriously romantic square to the King of Romance, Neptune in Pisces on October 10 at 2°. [F.Y.I. Neptune will be lingering at 2° from October 6 to December 21.] Heartfelt promises may be made over candlelit dinners or drinks but they may dissolve like the mist with the morning sun. Choose your lovers with great care under this influence.
The following week Venus interacts with Saturn in Scorpio and that dynamic duo, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Since Sagittarius falls between Scorpio and Capricorn, Venus will be semi-sextile first Pluto on October 16 and then Saturn on October 18. Like it or not, what can be construed as “frivolous” behaviors might be frowned on that week. It won’t be easy to do though because Uranus in Aries will be trine Venus on October 16 and it is a safe bet that planet will be doing its best to bring out Venus’s wild and crazy side. Popcorn, anyone?
Jupiter in Cancer makes the last aspect of significance to Venus, an inconjunct on October 26. What makes this one interesting is Jupiter rules Sagittarius, setting up a mixed message scenario. The biggest problem arises because Cancer and Sagittarius have very different priorities when it comes to security issues. Cancer is happiest when committed and holding on with both claws whereas Sagittarius fights feeling tied down with everything in them. Excess is a definite possibility but what kind? Emotional venting and/or excessive risk taking are both likely. Since this aspect occurs on the weekend of October 26-27 we may be better off rummaging around alone at yard sales looking for bargains rather than getting together with our sweetheart.
Laughter is what seduces Venus in Sagittarius, not vows of undying love or expensive gifts. She really means it when she says an excellent sense of humor is what she finds most appealing in potential lovers. Could be why she finds witty Mars in Gemini so intriguing and skitters away from Mars in Pisces or Virgo. Of course, adventurous Mars in Sagittarius is her favorite. Rugged outdoor types with a twinkle in their eyes and laughter in their hearts melt hers.
Take time to have some fun over the next few weeks. Indulge in some lighthearted flirtations with folks who know you aren’t serious and make opportunities to laugh out loud.
