Hi! Thanks for dropping by! Hey, are you looking for some good news about your love life this week? Well there are lots of helpful articles on this website, so go look at them instead and come back for next week’s forecast.
It’s a little simplistic to claim that something as complex as “love” is only ruled by one planet, but a large part of what we called love is ruled by Venus. And to be honest with you here, folks, our girl Venus is not going to be having a comfortable week.
The week starts with Venus square Jupiter. This is a particularly useful transit for having a good time, partying, and annoying your landlord. However, this aspect is not so great for making sensible romantic decisions, saving money, or sticking to your diet. There may be a lot of tripping and falling this week, sometimes in or out of love, and sometimes into the wrong bed.
In order to understand the situation Venus faces later in the week, we need to discuss an aspect call the quincunx. Say it with me: Quinn Cunks. Sounds kind of rude, doesn’t it? Well, the quincunx is not so much “rude” as “flat-out confusing.”
Imagine you’re driving a carriage pulled by two horses and you’re trying to get into town. Except that one of those horses is pointed forward, at the 12 o’clock position… and the other horse is something at like the five or seven position. When you try to put one horse in charge of where you’re going, the other will screw it up. In theory, if you point this combination in the right direction that involves neither of them pointing in the correct position you’ll still get to your destination. But odds are good you’ll look like an idiot doing it and no one will ever trust you with their carriage again.
Venus in Leo faces two quincunxes towards the end of the week that will probably scramble your love life to one degree or another. Sometimes you can get tasty results from scrambling something, but remember we’re talking about your love life, not your eggs.
Wednesday is the day that Venus quincunx Neptune is exact. Keeping that horse and carriage analogy in mind, assume that Venus in Leo is the pretty horse you put up front… the one you want everyone to see as you triumphantly enter the town. Unfortunately for your purposes horse number two had a little too much of that recently decriminalized Canadian marijuana in his forage, and he hasn’t got a clue where he is or where he’s going. Both of these horses want to get somewhere, but horse number one is getting frustrated. Horse number two, mysteriously, appears to be giggling a lot.
Before the effects of that transit are done, Venus quincunx Pluto comes into play. Imagine that the dopey and unrealistic horse number two has been replaced with a barely-tamed warhorse, who would much rather be on a crusade trampling infidels to death rather than looking good or being loved or pulling your damned carriage.
My message here is this when it comes to love and relationships, I’m an optimist. Things always get better eventually. But this week? You might just be better off holding your horses.
