“Sitting In The Stand Of The Sports Arena
Waiting For The Show To Begin
Red Lights, Green Lights, Strawberry Wine,
A Good Friend Of Mine, Follows The Stars,
Venus And Mars
Are Alright Tonight.”
Paul McCartney – Venus And Mars
Venus finally catches up with Mars, the object of her desire, 2 hours before the Full Moon in Aries, on October 5/6 2017. This marks the end of Venus’s journey to the Underworld, which began earlier this year. Venus finally meeting her Lover in Virgo, under a Full Aries Moon ( Mars ruled ) creating a wonderful space to complete and accelerate ideas, while continuing to make alterations on what we began earlier this year. Mars comes to accelerate and merge with Venus, adding the missing piece of the puzzle, as we enter the last quarter of the year.
Venus has endured long delays in meeting her lover Mars ! The Venus retrograde 2017 Venus Retrograde in Aries : Venus Underground delayed her just degrees away from conjoining Mars. These delays put her and us in a cycle of self-evaluation and reassessment around themes of Relationships, our body & looks, our Health, how we present to the world and the line between I & We in Relationships . These issues were all under the microscope March – May this year, on a physical level.
Venus finally meeting Mars gives us the traction to really push forward with any innovations or commitment to ourselves from that time. We now have an energetic boost around what we wanted to evolve too. The rocket fuel has been added as slate is being cleaned.
Post retrograde Venus has slowly been encroaching on Mars, the planet of power and masculinity for most of the middle part of the year. The Full Moon in Aries at the same time is a dualistic closing as well as a new beginning. Mars and the Full Moon now allows a cleansing and full un-delayed merging and blending of these masculine and feminine energies, now that Venus has finally caught up. This conjunction is accelerating our progress on what we set out to achieve , 6 months ago, around Venusian ideals. We are now merging it with the masculine, finding the balance needed, completing the last bit of the picture, or having some real passion or desire to integrate these changes.
Beauty Routines, Heath Routines, Creative Routines, Wardrobe Purges, Moving house, Nutrition, adjusting day-to-day routines to add more pleasure etc, these are all things that Mars is turbo charging with its conjunction with Venus. Evolving and bringing to the light something that has been wanting to come forward, for most of the year. But there has always felt like there was a part lacking. Now is when things begin to flow and you finally feel a balance or a real progression forwards as motivation hits a higher gear.
One year from now, exactly, on October 4/5th 2018, Venus will enter her next Retrograde cycle in Scorpio. We now have a 1 year window of opportunity to work with the body, health and day-to-day routines before Venus once again goes retrograde where the contemplation will be a lot more psychological and internally focused with Scorpio. Now is about adjusting our routines and becoming more physical. Tweaking the Physical, before the Mind and Spirit become the focus of the next overhaul. The only catch ? that you don’t over do it. Once you lose the pleasure of it all and intensity, anger or resentment pop up, you have gone to far. Remember this is about balancing the pleasure and the motivation. They work together not against each other. Where this Venus Mars combo gets off on is the analysis of how you work with merging these energies day to day ! Why ? Because they’re meeting in Virgo.
