A gong of cosmic proportions reverberates throughout the Universe. This is Venus in Aries, where the Goddess of Love crackles in the primeval fires of the ram. Aries is ravenous, fervent, fearless; a hot-blooded beast of dawn, adrenaline shattering the stillness. This is the great awakening; the beginning, the rebirth. Venus in Aries heralds physical and sexual energy, rushing back after a long winter. Lovingly licked clean by the flames of springtime renaissance, we are ALIVE.
What we get to work on: taming the ego. Aries is #1 in the zodiac. As such, the ram is not always the most considerate creature. Normally Venus upholds her role as peace keeper and diplomat. In Aries, this role is difficult to maintain. Tact and calm will not be forthcoming. Life with Venus in Aries is full of blunders, bruises and lessons learned. Under the influence of the impatient spring lamb, we tend to act first, think later. Conflict closes in like a lean wolf at midnight. Let’s all do our best to let go of temporary disagreements before they get under our skin!
Though Aries is quick to anger, we can harness this energy for potent self-love. Build heat in your body, release restlessness and rediscover your thirst for life without giving in to unhealthy impulses. It is time to revel in our strength. Remember how delicious it feels to be active. When planets spin through Aries, a light illumines at the base of the skull. 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 the day. May movement be pleasurable and effortless.
Venus enters Aries on the first day of Taurus season! On May 7, Venus squares Saturn Retrograde. Giving/receiving love may feel awkward or difficult. Some blockage will be broached in a relationship. Pessimistic expectations easily become self-fulfilling prophecies. If you are feeling fearful, unworthy or self-conscious, try to relax and lighten your heart. Not a good day for professional, financial or social commitments. Don’t take setbacks – or anything – too seriously. Reach out to elders and mentors in your life.
On May 9, Venus forms a harmonious trine to Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius – and normally I would say gold star day BUT…just 25 minutes later, Venus squares Pluto, dragging humanity into a whirlpool of passionate emotional responses. Shaky partnerships will be tested. No doubt a day of great learning, we will probably not like what we uncover. Pluto examines control and manipulation dynamics; his influence is nothing short of intense. Here we meet our shadow through other people. Whether or not we recognize this reflection as our own will determine the outcome of the day. In any case, the message is clear: it is time to let go, not force (painful) patterns to continue. Beware extreme mood swings, maybe even spend the day alone. This is the perfect morning to practice Aries Yoga.
