Astrology of Now: Beauty in the Mirror
|Venus at her Mirror, Velazquez.|
Today and this week, the planet of beauty, art and peace, Venus, looks into a mirror that magnifies her image: that is Neptune her big blue brother swirling through the outer solar system.
Venus is activating the water grand trine that connects Saturn (making manifest) in Scorpio (deep emotions), Neptune in Pisces (limitless imagination) with Jupiter in Cancer (images and memory). You can see in the chart that she turns the trine into a kite. As an inner planet, she is much more active and likely to bring action.
What does this mean? If you are an artist, get to work. If you are a lover, make love. If you are a lover of art or music or beauty, immerse yourself now. You will create memories that may nourish you for a lifetime, or even an artefact that will give you pleasure for years to come. Pay attention to the skill, the detail and the big vision.
Mars’ opposition to Pluto and square to Uranus adds a fatal dynamism to the action now, at cross-purposes to this beautiful energy. And yet, there is Venus again, acting as peacemaker. There is another way for warring parties to come to terms – and that is the way of peaceful negotiation, attention to detail (Virgo) and compassion (Neptune in Pisces).
