On Friday 20th December at 6.42am the sultry Venus glided into Aquarius. This is particularly significant for the festivities, because Venus into Aquarius is really friendly, and easy going around relationship matters.
At Christmastime we can all meet people, and spend time with folk we wouldn’t normally see, and this can be most enjoyable, but also testing at times. Venus in Aquarius helps us to take people more at face value, and to be more accepting if they are different from us.
Alyssa my wife and I, both have Venus in Aquarius, Alyssa in the 7th House of relating, which makes her diplomatic, and me in the 4th House of family and home, so I love quiet and peacefulness.
Venus Aquarius people tend to be less clingy around relationships, and understand that people need to express their individuality. People with Venus in Aquarius can have unconventional relationships and can value friendship and group contacts very highly.
But what is REALLY fascinating about this transit, is that at the turn of the year, Venus will be exactly conjunct the Midpoint between the Sun and the Moon which is the ultimate balance of the two luminaries which are so important to our existence, so we have a general Solar Return for 2020 suggesting that co-operation and collaboration and community affairs will come more into vogue through next year.
This focus will be emphasised further more by Saturn’s double move into Aquarius (March 23d, December 14th) and also Jupiter’s arrival in the Water Bearer on the 20th December.
In love, it is going to be important to celebrate the things we have in common. There is a tendency these days for people to flag differences, and whilst uniqueness should rightly be celebrated we all have very similar basic needs. So, if there are some issues or imperfections in a close relationship, look to resolve them in a spirit of friendship.
Single? This is an absolutely brilliant transit for the festive season, and even though Venus does clash with Uranus from the 21st to the 27th of December within a 3 degree Orb (exact 22nd December) and can bring some hidden tensions to the surface, actually it can also trigger some sudden and powerful attractions. So, if you are looking for a steamy clinch under the mistletoe, this can prompt it. Just don’t necessarily expect it to be a lasting fling.
But in general, Venus in Aquarius through to the 13th of January, urges us to be warm, friendly and open-minded about how we can get along with others. After all, relating is probably the most important, yet complex part of our lives, and Venus asks us to embrace our humanity and decency, as well as the one we love!
