VENUS SQUARES MARS
OPPOSING MALE FEMALE FORCES
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
Venus has just entered Cancer where women in particular feel more shy and kinder than normal. They will portray sympathy and being in a water sign will be magnetic, attracting all sorts of people that come their way.
This applies to men as well; if you can harness this special nurturing energy it will go a long way in all areas of life, especially if you treat others in a gentle respectful manner.
As Venus in Cancer is so magnetic, sympathetic with considerable charm, it can attract a lot of attention. This energy has the propensity to attract the wrong type; Venus energy is susceptible to flattery especially in Cancer.
There will be a strong desire to nurture loved ones and work at finding peace in the home at all costs. This could lead to loved ones taking advantage which due to a very angry Mars conflicting this nurturing energy, could lead to arguments that will not turn out well.
Mars is in Aries and this is what the medieval astrologers have to say:
“Mars is indicative of ire in every nativity, in other words you find wrath or anger wherever you find Mars. And if it is in a fiery sign the anger will be greater” Ibn Ezra, Medieval Astrologer
In today’s terms Mars is also seen as a pioneering planet, it thrives on physical, energetic, and vigorous energy and will now be spending the next 5 Months in Aries a fiery sign. It is connected with hard physical work and where you will be at your most active with the ability to assert yourself.
Venus will be in Cancer for a month and during this time these two planets will receive each other in a detrimental way.
If ire, anger, and impulsive selfish attitudes prevail the aggressor can fall from grace literally. The pain and hurt of any selfish behaviour will have circumstances. It is better to find solutions rather than anger.
The negative angry energy of Mars will not want nurturing; it can cope on its own and feels stifled when nurtured. Venus wants togetherness and caring which conflicts with the self motivated Mars, well this energy has the power to create tension and stress within groups and families.
Masculine selfish energy will be very harmful to women until mid January. That being said, the need to get what we desire will drive us to connect and hold onto the values we care about.
How do we find a middle path here, gentle Venus can be very easily hurt by brash uncaring people and Mars does not care.
Tap into the gentle Venus energy for the next month use it wisely as with effort it can cool our fiery impulses. Try not over nurture or give in to sudden outbursts of hurt and anger.
Best thing about this is if we are able to nurture a new and innovative project, give it the space and caring it needed to be a success we will be using this energy in a positive manner.
If we give in to hurt, impatience and anger expect to fall from grace. Be kind and patient to gentle people, avoid angry and selfish people.
A desire to do some self nurturing will be strong, so do so and without guilt. If it was not for this pandemic the advice would be to take up martial arts and then go to a spa for pampering.
