Mar 21 – Apr 14, 2021
A gong of cosmic proportions reverberates throughout the Universe. This is Venus in Aries, where the Goddess of Love crackles in primeval flames. Aries is ravenous, fervent, fearless; a hot-blooded creature of dawn, adrenaline shattering the stillness. This is the great awakening; the beginning; the rebirth. Venus in Aries brings physical and sexual energy, rushing back after a long winter. Licked clean by the fires of springtime renaissance, we are ALIVE.
Venus is usually the peace keeper and diplomat of the solar system. In Aries, this role is difficult to maintain. Aries is #1 in the zodiac and #1 in his own mind, which means he can be inconsiderate of others. When imbalanced, the ram is neither calm nor tactful. The impatient spring lamb tends to act first, think later. What we get to work on: taming the ego.
Let go of minor frustrations and disagreements. Choose your battles wisely.
Let’s harness this energy for potent self-love and self-care. Build heat in your body, release restlessness, and rediscover your thirst for life. Revel in your strength. Remember how delicious it feels to be active. When planets spin through Aries, deep, restful sleep returns (during Pisces transits, insomnia is common), and suddenly it is easier to get out of bed. May your body carry you joyfully through each day. May movement be pleasurable and effortless.
The first day of Venus in Aries coincides with the Waxing Quarter Moon in Cancer, plus a trine between Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius. This influence brings deep contentment and pride in our accomplishments.
Venus will be conjunct the Aries sun on Mar 25. This sacred union makes us cry tears of joy for the ones we love. Beautiful and productive influence. Transitions go well, plans are easily made and carried out.
Lastly, Venus squares Pluto in Capricorn on the New Moon in Aries (Apr 11), dragging humanity into a whirlpool. This is a stressful influence which causes us to feel tender and overwhelmed. Pluto’s influence is always so intense. With Venus involved, close relationships will be tested. No doubt a day of great learning, we won’t necessarily like what we uncover. Pluto examines control and manipulation dynamics. We will meet our shadow through other people. Whether or not we recognize this reflection as our own will determine the outcome of the situation. In any case, the message is clear: it is time to let go and stop forcing (painful) patterns to continue. We last saw this aspect on Nov 15, 2020. I woke up with a sore throat and felt gross due to an emotional hangover from the day before. I wanted to spend time with my partner but also didn’t want to feel controlling (classic Plutonian intimacy dilemma). Prepare for extreme mood swings. This aspect is fatiguing and draining; you may be so worried about something that you can’t get any work done, for example. To prevent nightmares, listen to relaxing music and/or meditate before bed. This would be the perfect day to power up and practice Aries Yoga.
