Honey, we need to talk.
Specifically, we need to talk about your expectations for your love life, given that Venus enters Leo on Wednesday. Oh I know, you’re probably all excited about it. Who wouldn’t be? Venus in Cancer was sweet and caring of course, but that’s where things can only go so far. What our love lives need is to pump up the volume a little, so we should all be thankful for Venus in Leo.
Actually, my dear, let’s be thankful for that next week, shall we? Because this week Venus is taking kind of a beating, and just won’t be able to perform as well as she should.
Venus square Uranus is going to be in effect all week. No matter what signs are involved, when Venus gets a tough aspect from Uranus, the otherworldly delights that Venus usually craves get all thrown out of whack. It’s a little like buying a candy store on the same day you’ve been diagnosed as diabetic: your impulse to rail against the practical limitations that your cravings face could be a chance to build some fortitude and some character that you really need — or you could just dive right in and find yourself in the back of an ambulance.
Just to make things ever more unsettled is that Venus is involved in two significant aspects that aren’t even going to be exact until next week, but that cannot be ignored. What makes things even more difficult is Venus quincunx Saturn. Whatever it is that we’re attempting to do to improve our love lives, our budgets or our diets is likely to meet some kind of unexpected or unmanageable obstacle.
Venus is approaching the opposition to Mars in Aquarius towards the end of the week. Venus opposite Mars is always great for boosting the sex life, but it’s not a terribly stable influence. Think of it as “a good time, not a long time” at best. Having said that though: a good time is still a good time, right?
The proper outlet for this week’s romantic astrological energy may very well be to shake things up in your sex life. Try something new and different and exciting. But honey, please, do show some caution, won’t you? What I’m trying to say here, dearest, is this: I know we both need to change things up a little, but could you please stop slapping me? Or at the very least, could you loosen the restraints enough that I have a chance to get away? I absolutely adore you, but I don’t think this is the kind of change in our relationship we really need. That, and if I have to yell for help, your other boyfriend might hear me…
