I am watching the skies and the people around me very carefully this week. Venus opposes Saturn on Thursday June 12, 2014 and along with the Moon in Sagittarius, this promises to be a day…even a weekend of some significant love and money events in people’s lives.
When Venus and Saturn are involved there are multiple possibilities. Some of the themes, all based on love, money sex and power are:
- defining your values
- self-worth and confidence
- relationships boundaries
- long-lasting, committed love relationships.
- wealth assessment and planning
- financial support involving parents or children
- dysfunctional sexual relations
- elimination of people and situations preventing gain wealth or real love
- commitment to another person
- parent-child nurturing issues
- control in a relationship
Keeping It Real
The clear message I want to send to everyone is that with this configuration happening this week, KEEP IT REAL. With the Moon in Sagittarius also laying on heavy emotions that are likely to be expressed in a fiery manner, the people who do best this week will be those who are
- open with all the facts and information
- honest about everything
- clear and detailed
- committed to a long-term relationship or investment
- committed to a plan
- hardworking/ready to do hard work on a relationship or financial matter
- resolute/determined about fixing any and all problems
- stubborn enough to try again
If these things are done, there will be great gain, great profit in love and money — in the present and in the future.
Venus in Taurus Opposite Saturn in Scorpio
Venus-Saturn transits call us to deal with issues that are deep and intimate and challenging; but if we deal with the lack of nurturing as a child, the fear of not performing well sexually, the bad financial status, the fear of committing to marriage, the need to control others, dishonesty and lack of openness about money or sex etc. we will benefit from creating a lasting foundation this week.
Saturn is about restriction, limitations and structure. Saturn is the Cosmic Father/Parent who wants us to have all that we can in this life starting with a firm foundation, thick framework, solid walls and securely fastened, waterproof, fire-resistant roof. If we must sacrifice and do hard work to get it, then so be it.
Venus wants us to partner because there is strength in numbers, to accumulate because wealth is good, to have comfort and luxury, to enjoy great satisfying sex and to deeply know love.
It is possible to enjoy the pleasures of life (Venus in Taurus) while tending to your obligations and commitments (Saturn in Scorpio).
Handling Venus-Saturn Transits
In general, get serious about your commitments. Learn how to do more with less and to live without some things. Learn how to value yourself and your skills (take the time to discover them if you do not know them). Get an understanding of your values and which ones will build you up and/or sustain you through tough times. Accept that you may need to carry your partner and have heavy demands placed on you and keep those obligations without resentment.
With finances, discuss things openly, honestly and in detail with the other person no matter how fearful that seems to be. You have a choice to either live in fear or in love. You can either fear money or love money. Perhaps you two need to discuss the role money has played in the love between the two of you. How has money affected your ability to love each other? In your finances, make wise firm decisions about your investments, savings and spending. Make sacrifices now to have more profit, gain and enjoyment later.
With love and sex, keep it real about what you like and do not like as well as what you fear and why. Talk about why you have a hard tie showing affection. Share what your partner does that pleases you. Tell each other why you love each other (because perhaps you have forgotten). Give your partner and yourself opportunity to make a new, more solid start. Be tactile (TOUCH) and show your partner your love, care, affection and nurturing. Say “I love you” and say it often. The investment of those three words, said often will bring you great returns. You will be loved in return and you will know it. Give all you have to your partner, and then give some more.
With power — please realize you have NONE when you attempt to control someone else. Share the love, the money, the information, the knowledge, the good and the bad, and the money. Speak kindly to each other. Love is not meant to be about control nor is it to be a burden. Control is fear and far always brings failure and loss.
