Venus and Mars align in the earthy sign of Virgo today, heightening our feelings, which can be passionate and feel pressing now. This transit generates a warm, expressive, and lively energy. We can feel compelled to do something creative or artistic. In some cases, this impulsive energy produces “love at first sight” scenarios. Venus is diplomatic, gentle, romantic, and sensitive, while Mars is more direct, sexual, and assertive. Venus can act to soften Mars’ aggressiveness, or Mars can make Venus’ romantic impulses more forceful and pressing. Some level of competition is present in our interactions, but it’s likely of a pleasurable and gently challenging kind. We’re inclined to make impulsive decisions about relationships, pleasure, or material goods. We may be bringing more creativity to the work we do or to the services we provide.
The Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aries at 2:41 PM EDT, boosting the excitement further. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and epiphany, and this one urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability. The Full Moon illuminates the conflict between “me” and “you,” and between self-sufficiency and sharing. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic illumination occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, and we might want to exercise some care expressing them.
With the Full Moon forming a square to Pluto and the Sun aligned with Mercury, there can be intense realizations now. The Moon spends all day in the spontaneous sign of Aries.
