EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN SQUARE VENUS: SATURDAY APRIL 22
Saturn is very powerful still in the sky as it is still very slow in motion and so is Venus and they been both been lingering at around 3 degrees between Sagittarius and Pisces and this influence will continue for another week until April 27th when Venus moves about 3 degrees away from the exact aspect. Today is Friday ruled by Venus so the impact will be felt the most. Venus also transited back into Saturn’s constellation of Uttarabhadapada ( Pisces 3.20-16.40) today and will channel Saturn’s energy which is still strong in transit until April 27th when it retrogrades into the weaker part of the sign (Sagittarius 0-3.20 from April 27-June 20th for a revisit.
This aspect can create tensions in relationships and lead to cooling down of romance, break-ups, rude awakenings and reality checks. With Venus very slow in transit now still until April 26th and stirring the pot for revaluation, this aspect may be at a fulcrum point. There may be a tendency to be very critical and hard on your partner, to nit-pick and criticize and to have internal grumblings as to why your relationship is not work. The key is always acceptance. No one is perfect and the people we live closest with tend to rub us the wrong way. Is the love deep enough that it does not matter if they leave a dirty sock in the wrong place or an unwashed dish in the sink? I think the intensity of the planets with Mars aspecting Rahu and Saturn fairly closely and the Sun so close to Mercury is creating a lot of internal anger and grumbling and if do not find ways to let it out, we take it out on our partner. Look for the love and remember the good times together. Saturn loves to complain and grumble and it just creates misery. Exercise, yoga and meditation will cool Saturn’s energy but go back to the love rather than pick your partner apart. I think Libra and Taurus have the most challenge with this.
Still Saturn and Venus are good friends and so getting a massage or doing physical or artistic work like making jewelry or sculpting or painting, will mold Saturn’s physicality into something beautiful and then relationships can go to the background and Venus’s desire to express beauty can triumph.
For non-romantic relationships, there may be strain, there will also be revaluation, loss of friendships or business relationships if you can not get through the problem areas. This is a time to unload and clear problems and exalted Venus is strong enough to support it for some charts and a resolution to this issue may come by April 27th when the aspect is far away not be a burden. Be open to letting go of relationships that do not work for you or do the hard work to get through them.
If you are not in relationship, loneliness may become an issue over the next week. Get through this by expressing your artistic talent in a painting, song, poem or dance. Do yoga poses like the Lion pose to increase 2nd chakra and creative energy if it seems stuck. Breathing into the 2nd chakra and focus on it will energize a stuck Venus and support reproductive and creative energies.
All charts are so unique and we write general columns for the public. If you have Venus and Saturn in early degrees of Sagittarius and Pisces and are running a Venus/Saturn or Saturn/Venus period, the impact of this aspect is likely to be strong. Pisces, Virgo and Geminis and Sagittarius rising will feel it more powerfully.
