With Venus in Sagittarius, social life glows like a joyful bonfire. This is an exuberant, festive cycle. Sagittarius moves us up and out of our own little bubbles. Sagittarius is spirited; vibrant; spontaneous; carefree. Adventure is the cure for Sagittarian restlessness. This is an especially favorable time for natal Sagittarians, as well as Aries and Leo. The rest of us absorb your luminescence with gratitude!
When planets transit Sagittarius, a childlike naïveté swirls and giggles. If Truth abides somewhere cold or dark or desolate, Sagittarius gallops away to the nearest star. At this time we must resist the urge to flee when social obstacles arise. Sagittarius likes to take half-baked shortcuts, but these never really end up being shorter. From Rumi’s poem Tattooing in Qazwin: “Brother, stand the pain. / Escape the poison of your impulses. / The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. / Learn to light the candle.”
Venus in Sagittarius examines our willingness to learn from our mistakes, as well as our potential for spiritual expansion. Together we can erase psychological complexes which prevent us from living authentically. Watch for the continued arrival of mentors.
Consider Sagittarius as Capricorn’s forerunner. It is Sagittarius who prepares us for the sea goat’s art and architecture. Before we enter this earthen kingdom, we need to become our own source of light. It is time for an infusion of felicity. Reach higher, reach farther, draw back your arrow, and then find the edge, the limit, the boundary. This is the gate to Capricorn’s domain, the boundary of common sense; self-control; self-discipline. Striking balance between work and adventure. Food for thought from the Winter Solstice.
The morning of Jan 18 will be nice and sparkly – Venus trines Mars in Aries for a boost of physical and sexual energy. However, later that evening, the Sun in Capricorn squares Uranus, so it’s anyone’s guess what will happen then. What I really want to talk about is Jan 20 – what a DAY. First the Sun enters Aquarius, which is crazy enough. That evening, Venus squares Neptune. An hour later, we have a supermoon lunar eclipse in Leo – we’ll see how it goes!! On Jan 22, Venus is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius – I suspect this will be one of the best days of the cycle. Venus enters Capricorn one day before the new moon / Chinese New Year!
This cycle is a really great time to travel. Even if you can’t get away, expand inwardly by learning about cool new things. You don’t even have to leave home. Pick up a new book. Dance around your room! Sing at the top of your lungs! Stay feisty with Sagittarius Yoga. While Venus is in Sagittarius, she is a morning star. Look for her at dawn in the east. If you were born with Venus in Sagittarius, this is your Venus Return. To find your Venus sign, click here.
