Venus enters Aquarius on December 20th at 1:41 AM EST. Matters pertaining to relationships, money, values and self-esteem will be filtered through this detached Air sign. That means a fresh approach to all Venus matters, as some detachment is necessary in order to break away from what’s outdated. This is the sign of liberation and updates (the future) so expect some odd but refreshing manifestations. This is also the sign of friendship (as opposed to partnerships) so relationships in general will have more room to maneuver.
Venus in Aquarius is about the beauty of what’s eccentric – the detachment of the outsider may be forced or voluntary, but this is the transit that allows you to explore what’s appealing about differences. Break with tradition and experiment, while considering what impact your role in society has on your self-esteem. Even if you refuse to run with the crowd and steadfastly maintain an anti “whatever” stance, this still describes your relationship to the collective (your role as a rebel, disgruntled hermit or sparkling alien – all manifestations of Venus in Aquarius).
Independence is valued as are friendly social connections – keep it light and non-judgemental. The only thing that is really committed to is your own path or a meaningful friendship; Venus in Aquarius can and does commit, but only on her terms.
Venus will exit Aquarius for Pisces on January 13th.
