OK, dear Readers and Friends, the top search term is for Venus by far.  Not surprising, since the world could use some love as the antidote to war, hate, prejudice, despair, etc.  Venus appears in the sky as either a morning star or an evening star.  What this means in peoples’ charts is Venus will either be in the same sign as the Sun, or one sign ahead, or one sign after.  Once about every two years, Venus   goes into retrograde motion for about 6 weeks.  That’s about a year away from now.

At this time Venus is travelling behind the Sun, so Venus enters Sag just before the Sun enters Capricorn…this transit is less than a month long.  Naturally, people with their Sun in late Sag or in Cap are going to be the main beneficiaries of this transit.  Venus on your Sun, or on other planets in your natal in these 2 signs, means that  life will be a little sweeter and easier for you.  People will be kinder and more cooperative and generous.  Venus works on the attraction principle so it will be easier to draw to you that which you seek.  The first step is knowing what you want.  Try making a wish list.  Write it down and place the paper where you will see it everyday.  For those of you who are seeking love, it is important to know what qualities you are seeking in a partner.  There should be 10 or 12 traits on your list.  Those of you who need more money or money to purchase items you want or need should apply the same principle — make a check to yourself and place it where you will see it a lot.  Same thing with a wish list of items you need.  One time many years ago I needed a bunch of winter clothing for the kids.  We had moved to a colder climate so it was a necessity.  I made my list. About 2 months later a check arrived  for the needed amount.  It was a retroactive pay raise from the job I had just left.  Amazing how this stuff works.  You write down what you need and release attachment as to HOW it might come about — just give it to the Universe…

If it’s artistic inspiration you need — remember Venus is love, art, beauty — then look up the name in mythology of the muse you need and visualize yourself, every day, receiving inspiration.  Think about this also just before you go to sleep each night.  And don’t be specific about where the inspiration has to come FROM, just know that it WILL.  By the way, the great artists that have passed on often function as spirit guides to artists here on earth.  They  help in response to your own focus, concentration and passion for your art.

Venus in Sag is particularly good at attracting information and knowledge for others.  Again, be alert and aware because the information you are seeking can come from your research, but ALSO from a chance encounter in a waiting room, from the TV, from a magazine that falls out of the rack at your feet, etc.  SO… don’t limit yourself.

People with late Gemini or early Cancer rising are going to have Venus transiting through their 7th house of partnerships.  This gives you an opportunity to meet someone special, to come to agreements with partners, to enjoy more love and affection.  So many people don’t seem to understand that love begins over the breakfast table.  It’s putting your hand on your loved one’s shoulder as you pour the juice or coffee or tea.  It’s making the lunches with little surprises tucked inside.  It’s taking the time to tell your sweetie you hope they have a good day before you leave the house, remembering, of course, that they have an important meeting that day and acknowledging it.

People who want more love need to start by honoring and loving themselves.  Doing this in small ways pays off big time.  The Universe  reflects back to us what is inside us.  The outer world mirrors our relationship with ourselves.  Do you have a picky, critical mate and feel stuck and unappreciated?  Maybe you need to be kinder and gentler to YOURSELF first.  Really anchor that in, how you treat yourself, affirm your self-respect and self-esteem daily, and watch the world start to reflect that back to you.  We often meet qualities in ourselves through our partners, aspects of ourselves that we  don’t acknowledge consciously.  I have watched these principles in action over many years and either the relationship will bloom, or the person will bloom and gain the courage and self-respect not to tolerate anything less than REAL love.

Venus doesn’t make too many major transits at this time.  Let’s take a look at what’s happening during this time frame…

Venus squares Neptune on December 16th.  I usually allow orb of a day on either side of the exact transit.  This square could indicate a hangover from excessive partying the night before.  We could feel foggy today, not quite with it.  Not a good day to splurge and break your budget.  Definitely a good day to visit someone who is ill or confined — to show compassion, understanding and emotional support to someone who is having a rough time or a crisis. For some people, their pets are the ones who are going to need the love..

Venus trines Uranus on Wednesday the 19th.  This one is fun for spontaneous rapport and telepathy with other people, including potential partners.  You could receive unexpected good news, information, or a gift.  Don’t be surprised if you think about someone and they call you within a few minutes.  Great for going out with friends or a group situation.

Moon in Aries trines Venus on the 20th — this one is great for going somewhere new, or trying something new.  Initiative can be rewarded.  Nice for social life, particularly with women.  Shopping looks pretty good, too.

Venus opposes Jupiter on December 22nd and 23rd, depending on your time zone.  This is a more major transit and people need to be careful about the famous Sag tendency of too much of a good thing.  Excess would be more likely here, as would people around you who think they can get something for nothing.  How might this manifest in our lives?  I get a couple of impressions here.  For one thing, the scammers and pickpockets will be out in full force.  Pay attention and don’t let your guard down if you’re out and about, last minute shopping, etc.  Donating to official charities is OK.  You can look up online to see which ones have the most reasonable admin fees.  The other impression is more about being in social situations where a part of you feels reluctant or ambivalent about the people you are with.  Maybe this is a family situation involving  in-laws or other relatives?  Rather than resenting the obligation and feeling boxed in, try to accept that you drew these people into your life for a reason and see if you can figure out what reason, what there is to learn from the situation.  If they are pushy, clueless and insensitive,  then be glad you are not !!  Overall, don’t let yourself be talked into doing anything you don’t feel good about.  If you have to say no to something, use the Sag humor to get you through it.  Be very moderate with alcohol so no one can try to take advantage of you.  No drinking and driving !! The weather can make driving more difficult — allow extra time and be a defensive driver.  Some people will be going on a special trip as a gift — they would be the ones with major trines and sextiles  from their natal to this opposition.

The Moon in Gemini opposes Venus the  day after Christmas.  It’s a busy time for most women and you may miss your female friends and also loved ones who have departed this earth.  It’s not a bad day but there seem to be a lot of distractions and less cooperation than you would like.  For male-female relationships, this opposition makes it harder to agree on social plans, especially if there are ex’s involved and step-children.  Do your best to be tolerant.

On January 5th, 2013, Venus sextiles the Moon in Libra.  This is a very nice time to meet someone new or to enjoy the love relationship you have.  Laughter and shared  social plans predominate.  A very nice weekend I would think. Since Venus is in Sag, places to meet someone new might be libraries, bookstores, while travelling, possibly at the local pub, at a church or college function,  even at the horse races or a dog show :)) — Venus in Sag rules horses and large dogs.  The main thing is to follow your own interests and have some fun.  If you don’t like dogs, then why go to a dog show in the hope of meeting someone?

Venus enters Capricorn on January 9th, technically the 8th in US time zones.  So, Venus is at 29 degrees Sag during most of that Tuesday.  Remembering that the last degree of a sign, the 29th, is a critical degree, then pay attention to the Sag tendencies of excess, speed, over-optimism.   There are no harsh or  challenging aspects to Venus at this time.  The 29th degree could just symbolize some kind of philosophical or mystical breakthrough.  It’s also a wonderful transit for writers and musicians, creative types who use words, in the sense of  wrapping up a big project and/or connecting with kindred spirits at a distance.  People who write ads or commercials should plan for a brainstorming session, too.  There could be something spectacular in the news about teachers — let’s hope it’s the positive type of news…

The next Venus post for Capricorn will have quite a lot of major transits…stay tuned…comments and suggestions are welcome…Blessings, Jenae
