Venus moved into cool as a cucumber Capricorn on Sunday 24 January 2016 and this will be a definite calming energy as Mercury conjoins Pluto and triggers the very-much-still-active Uranus-Pluto square. This is a volatile combination that may have you speaking a little more harshly than you might otherwise, perhaps even getting caught up in verbal conflicts over power.
On the 11 October Jupiter trine Pluto will give us a powerful boost of energy. This energy is already in affect and will last from 27 September to 29 October. With Jupiter at 13 degrees Virgo and Pluto direct again at 13 degrees Capricorn, this is a very earthy energy that is perfect for manifesting something very concrete at the material level.
Venus trine Pluto happens twice each year so this is not a particularly rare or special transit. What is special is the other transits that accompany it. Venus trine Pluto is part of a triple conjunction of Venus, Mars and Jupiter, all in trine to Pluto!
The astro transit to watch out for this week is the brief but potent Venus square Pluto, which could really pack a punch in the relationship department, particularly if your natal planets or points are triggered. Exact on 21 November Venus square Pluto is active from 18 to 24 November 2015.
Feeling the love? Venus, planet of relationships and connection, moved into Pisces on 27th January and will remain there until 20th February. Venus in Pisces brings compassion in conflict, empathy in partnerships and, for those who are susceptible, a tendency to fall madly in love. Very often with the wrong person!
Unless something is going on for you personally, you can forward to a social and outgoing full moon in Gemini this month. Yang energy abounds with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus all in Air or Fire signs, and you’ll probably be chatty and keen to make new friends and share ideas.
Effective from 4 February, Venus conjunct Pluto is exact on Saturday 6 February 2016. We will then have just four days to make the most of this energy, which will provide powerful focus and intention for working on the dynamics of our closest connections with others.
Mercury trine Jupiter is a fast moving transit that nevertheless has a powerful impact if you happen to be affected by it personally. During this time you’re likely to be more open to other ways of looking at things, new solutions to old problems will pop into mind unexpectedly and there will be an increased desire to learn and to gather knowledge.
It’s Cancer season, and with the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury all in the sign of the Mother there’s a strong energy of nurturing at work. However with Pluto opposing this stellium from Capricorn our attempts to nurture those we love can easily become fixated and controlling, especially if we haven’t done the work of nurturing ourselves first.
