Venus Square Mars – its all fun and games in love land, or is it??

It seems that we’ve had a couple of relatively benign days after the psychic (or should that be psychotic?) ructions of Pluto stationary at the full Moon, so we’ll all be ready for the fun and games of this coming weekend, right? (and no, I don’t mean football, that’s over!)

Venus is square to Mars over the weekend.  Venus, the feminine planet that represents beauty and attraction.  Mars, the masculine planet that represents action and sexual drive.  This weekend, those two energies are at cross-purposes with each other.  Sexual tensions and competitiveness will play out in the land of love, and it is likely that differences will arise between romantic and sexual needs, between love and action, betwen reception and assertion.  This can be either stimulating and invigorating, if we celebrate the differences, or it can be damaging and controlling if we don’t allow ourselves to see the other side.  And the tussle between the masculine and feminine energies will be as much about what happens on the outside, betwen people, as what goes on on the inside, with our individual yin and yang balance.

The reason this square is quite full on is that it has the intensity of Venus in Scorpio (loving through desiring, harmony through conflict) at odds with the passion of Mars in Leo (self assertion through creation of power and drama).  Scorpio and Leo are both ‘fixed’ signs, this means they tend to be a little stuck in their ways … and this weekend might require a bit of giving in to make things work!

Of course it’s not causal, but it is a fascinating insight into the fundamental interconnectedness of all things ….

Getting serious with Saturn – 18 September 2013

There’s a few astro things over the next few days that could make it quite intense, a bit of a heavy time, but purposeful.  Full Moon in Pisces on Thursday, Venus Conjunct Saturn also on Thursday, and Pluto stationary before it turns Direct on Friday.

Relationships are likely to take on a bit of a serious tone, and the stuff that comes up will be an opportunity to create greater depth and direction in intimate relating.  When Saturn plays with Venus (if Saturn can ever play, given that it is the serious planet!), there is a sense of purpose in relating.

The Pisces Full Moon and Pluto turning around could manifest in some deep, less than conscious, dredging.  Dreams could be intense and interesting.  Of course none of this is causal, but … it is an interesting insight into the fundamental interconnectedness of all things!

Pushing and pulling …

OK, so I’ve been a little distracted with Saturn (work) and Venus (play), so not a lot of time for astrology.  But thought it was worth making a note of today’s astro vibe.  Some might have been feeling this already over the weekend, we have been in a build up to Mars Square Saturn for a few days, and the energy peaks today.  This creates a bit of a struggle betweeen wanting to push through and assert self on the one hand, while feeling restricted and controlled on the other.  Some people will be doing a bit of each, which is likely to cause a few clashes.  Watch out in particular for Arians being frustrated and Capricornians being pushy … and be especially careful if you’ve got both of them in the same time and place!! Take care out there!

And of course its not causal, but it is a fascinating insight into the fundamental interconnectedness of all things!!
