Venus-Saturn and New Moon: No more rose colored glasses



Venus squares Saturn this week, and the energy of this transit is potent all week. The transit peaks January 27, at 12:50 PM. After this, the energy is still strong, but it will wane over the next few days.

Additionally, we have a powerful New Moon that occurs at January 27, at 7 07 PM, EST. This Moon is potent because it is unaspected, and because of the Venus-Saturn square.

As always, how this plays out with you, depends on how and where these planets are located in your personal chart.

Venus square Saturn can be negative, depressing and for some can involve endings of different sorts, not limited to romantic relationships. We may be focused on responsibilities which can interfere with social activity. This will not be the best time for social activities and interaction although it can connect you with those from the past at times.

In terms of relationships, you won't have the blinders on with this transit. In some cases, you may see your loved one differently. Endings probably won't occur unless the relationship is tottering on the edge anyway.

This is the time to come to terms with what your relationships really men to you and if they suit your needs.

The other side of this transit represents the type of love that is long lasting, and that will remain with you when things aren't going so well, you are sick, or you no longer look so hot.

My advice is to not act on a spur of the moment issue, whim or bored moment. Saturn is about responsibilities and work.

Additionally the New Moon occurs on the same day. Being unaspected this moon can be quite powerful. As Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus some people may want to break free, or you may want to try and do things differently. Jean-Baptiste Morin de Villefranche wrote that "an unaspected planet heralds that something strange or extraordinary will take place regarding the meanings of the house in which the said planet is posited." Aquarius is all about personal freedom.

Over the weekend we have a few more astrological events to add to the pot as well. January 28, Mars enters Aires where it is at home.

As all planets are direct at this time, action should pick up and action should take on a faster pace, although people may seem more selfish and bolder.

January 29, Mercury conjuncts Pluto. This can be obsessive to a point of distraction. It is indicative of arguments, accidents and overly intense interactions. Sometimes we find out unexpected things, and others may try to convince you of things, or it could be the other way around. At its worst, it is a transit of mental, verbal or physical abuse.

 In the world this transit represents propaganda. The media will be involved, although not necessarily in a negative way. It is hard to trust what you hear these days, and a transit like this can be driven by others personal, hidden motives and agendas.
