The Venus Sun Conjunction
The symbolism abounds
At 5:17 AM this morning, Venus created an inferior conjunction with the Sun at 4 Aries 57. The Sabian Symbol reads: “A triangle with wings” – contemplation of which leads to an experience of peace, harmony, and Oneness because Three is self-steadying. Three is associated with spirituality because the “wings” have left the ground — they are transcendent. This fits in well with the religious denotations for this day, it is exactly nine months to Christmas and today marks the appearance of the archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary for the “annunciation.”
Currently, hidden in the Sun’s rays, Venus will appear again on March 31 as a “helical rising” where Venus is ahead of the Sun. She continues thus for approximately the next year or 260 days. While retrograde, she will station direct on April 15 (US Tax Day) at 26 Pisces 55 on the cusp of the seventh house and conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s modern co-ruler. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is the “harvest moon” where new achievement emphasizes nature’s gifts.
A Venusian conundrum
Venus though is in strange territory. On one hand in the seventh house, that she essentially rules for Libra, is found currently under the influence of Aries, where Venus is in her detriment or her polar opposite. So Venus is getting “sucked dry” by the “heat” of Aries like the beautiful desert lantana and her brilliant yellow red blooms are flowering too quickly to be appreciated by all but the most attentive butterflies
- The general advice is to maintain your mental and emotional equilibrium by pacing yourself and like the butterfly waiting for your moments to strike.
