Venus: goddess of art and romance, pleasure and beauty. Venus in rebellious Aquarius infuses the heart with freedom and passionate defiance. When her freedom to be as she is feels even slightly threatened, the water bearer braces for battle. This archetype is not warm or fuzzy, but fervent, quick to anger, and yet quick to forgive. Prepare for a highly social, exploratory transit. Those born with Venus in Aquarius tend to gravitate towards unusual individuals/circumstances and often end up in unorthodox relationships or living situations. Aquarian individuals make excellent – if not quirky – friends. This is an especially favorable time for natal Aquarians, as well as Gemini and Libra.
As self-aware creatures, Aquarians openly acknowledge their rough edges and extreme opinions. In this constellation, Venus reminds us that, despite our flaws, we are well-supported by golden webs. If you’ve destroyed your social webs, spin new ones now. Have mercy on your electric soul. Our purpose is to be ourselves, completely and fearlessly. We are wild horses roaming the cosmic plain. We are not just anyone, but adventurers, lovers, artists.
Aquarius is like vyana, one of the five prana vayus. Vyana is a physio-spatial energy radiating from the core of the body, out through the skin and beyond. Like Aquarius, vyana rules all manner of circulation. In the body this means not just the circulatory system, but also circulation of thoughts, nervous responses and electrical charges. Outside the body, Aquarius represents circulation of knowledge. The water bearer teaches humanity how to co-create and learn from one another. Think of this transit as a master class in “embracing the collective.”
When Venus, planet of interpersonal relations, transits eccentric Aquarius, it’s time to widen our social circle and invite some funky fresh change to the table. Aquarius is scattered and unpredictable, yet self-sustaining and independent. He is a martyr and visionary. He sees a world without money, laws, jails, borders or restrictions of any kind: a world in which cooperation is a fact of life. Get ready to get radical!
As an air element, Aquarian energy can make us think too much or rely too much on the logic brain. To cool your galvanized Aquarian heart, put on some music and dance (a favorite Aquarian pastime). Make big circular movements with your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, head, spine and whole body. Writhe like an animal, who cares, no one’s watching. Let your instinct body come out and howl. While Venus is in Aquarius, she is an evening star. Look for her at sunset in the west. If you were born with Venus in Aquarius, this is your Venus Return.

First things first: Winter Solstice on Dec 21! One day later on Dec 22, Venus squares Uranus Retrograde in Taurus, womp womp. Some weird, unexpected stuff might surface concerning sex and intimacy. Uranian influence can be quite sharp and restless. Don’t expect to get much sleep. New moon solar eclipse coming on Christmas Day, then a full moon lunar eclipse on Jan 10.
The last full day of Venus in Aquarius (Jan 12, 2020) coincides with a major conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. A conjunction with Pluto signals that we are about to confront some serious shit. Just to give you an idea of how rare and powerful this is: we haven’t seen a Saturn-Pluto conjunction since 1982 and won’t see another until 2053. And the conjunction hasn’t taken place in Capricorn since at least the 1700s, possibly even before. We will be so dedicated, so committed, that nothing else will matter. We are building something truly unstoppable. Problems and conflicts are eradicated with ease under the influence of this conjunction. Beware greedy spirits grabbing for more power in a mad dash; fearmongering and gaslighting will crescendo; but the wise know to tune out this bullshit and STAY FOCUSED.
Everything about this conjunction is motivating and encouraging. Even fear encourages honest inquiry and gets us moving. Pluto is currently in the process of ripping every single institution out by its roots, shaking until all the old men fall out, and then casting these withered dinosaurs and establishments out into the galaxy to burn up and never return. This is a major excavation but we’re going to survive. We all play a small but important part in the renovation. Let’s be more honest with ourselves about how we seek power through our career, reputation or status, yet pretend that we are not in the rat race, or pretend that we “don’t care” about these things when we really do. Say no to spiritual bypassing.
Affirmation: together we rise
