Venus Squares Saturn (again), Mars into Gemini | what did you do about that wall?

k.m. by snjezana josipovic
Today is the 3rd and final time Venus squares Saturn - first direct (that's us hitting the wall) then retrograde (that's us going back over the situation and hopefully figuring out what to do about it) and now direct again - so, what's it gonna be?

Are we going to climb it, go around it, head in another direction? Or have we done this already. Venus energy is about love, money, self esteem, our values, women, beauty. This could/is also about the theme of our late Pisces natal house.

After this final roadblock this area of life will ease up.

Whatever has been standing in our way will be in our rearview mirror - maybe because we've figured out a way over or around or maybe because we've let go of that Venusian desire, released it as something that just ain't gonna happen right now, and moved on.

With Venus and Saturn this can also be about loneliness and isolation. Some things need to be done solo, but if this whole "put on your big girl pants and just do it" has become too much - the opportunities will arise now to involve other people. Walls can come down. Also learning to love time spent in solitude is a wonderful gift. There could be experiences with that energy now.

With Saturn squares what usually happens is the reality of the situation can no longer be ignored. With Venus it's time to find the beauty (and love) in that. 

Note the fly in the ointment of this whole situation beginning to lighten up after today (although it will to an extent) is we have Chiron and Saturn getting closer to their exact square in pretty much this same area. There is probably some later (within the next couple weeks) ouch still to be felt/dealt here. Sorry.

Also today firey Mars moves out of Taurus, where he has been kind of grinding his heels, and into energetic, frenetic Gemini. You can decide if this is a good thing. With Mars now in Gemini answering to Mercury and Mercury in Aries answering to Mars - these planets are in mutual reception and both strengthened. You decide if this is a good thing.

Mars in Gemini will have us running here and there. This is the energy that loves multi-tasking. Yes, we know now that multi-tasking really just means doing everything half-assed, but sometimes half-assed is good enough. And sometimes it isn't. You decide.

Too many balls in the air, can be an exciting thing, until they are all in a pile at our feet. If everything is equally important than nothing is really important. Skills to prioritize and stay on track will come in handy now.

With Mercury retrograde alot of our energy will be going into old situations. Maybe we can say/do it differently this time. Watch for flashes of temper and tricky situations to come and go quickly. What is that old expression - don't get too worked up about the weather because it's about to change. Well, that's a good way to look at life right now.

Stay flexible. Things are in flux. And we will soon be headed into Gemini season (I don't mean to rush Taurus season, but already this is how Gemini makes me think!) when even more will be in flux. Use a loose grip now and don't count your chickens until they have hatched. This isn't the final, final round.

My car broke down this week and I've decided today to stop this shared car drama by renting a car for a few days. Usually I can't bear to toss money away like this, but it's Taurus season and equally hard to be uncomfortable. Naturally I will rent a teeny tiny, terribly uncomfortable car, that requires contortions to enter and exit, that saves me ninety nine cents a day. Because ... well ninety nine cents a day. And I do love zippy little cars and there is the whole Mercury (transportation) and Mars (action) in mutual reception thing now.

(also I should report the whole renovation hell with the money pit camper continues)

We'll talk more about Gemini as we move through it. Just know we are about to get alot done or at least alot started or maybe just be running in a whole lot of different directions at once.

That mutual reception with Mercury thing and Mars ruling war thing means we need to watch that our language doesn't start a war. So don't start a war. Just do something else on that never ending to-do list until the weather shifts ..... xo all
