The New Moon in Aquarius falls on 30th January. It is also the Chinese New Year on that day, too. As Aquarius is the sign most associated with humanitarian values and philanthropy, we must hope that the month following this New Moon will bring a breakout of peace and diplomacy for our beleaguered world.
Those born with either their Sun or Moon in Aquarius will always hold the highest ideals and wish that the rest of the world to do the same. They are also very independent, strong minded and are able to keep their cool when everyone around them is losing theirs.
Venus now standing still in readiness to start her journey in forward motion on Friday will bring a sigh of relief for Taurus and Libra natives – at last they can finally start to bring their hopes and wishes into the real world. No more feeling as if they are going backwards on their projects.
Venus represents the quality within us all to love, to be generous, to value the good things in life, and to enjoy ourselves. The ancients knew her to be symbol of beauty and grace, sensuality and harmony.In her backwards motion over the past couple of weeks, Venus has been pulled by Pluto to join him in his cave in the Underworld. She would have been attracted to his magnetic powers of attraction because they do have an ancient back story together. However, no matter how hard he tried to lure her back to him, she managed to resist an exact aspect with him – stopping just one degree ahead of him, thus just managing to avoid his advances, and standing her ground. This is not easy for Venus to do as her natural way of dealing with strong or aggressive people is to try to appease them, often at great cost to herself.
I am sure that this will resonate with all of those who have Taurus and Libra Sun, Moon or Ascendant on their charts. Even those who have Venus close to their Sun or Moon will recognise within themselves a strong “people-pleaser” characteristic that can work against them. Well, this time around Venus has resisted Pluto and NOT pleased him – maybe that’s a good lesson for all Venusian types to take to heart. And practise makes perfect, remember, so give it a whirl – just say “No” occasionally – the sky won’t fall in, I promise and your Venus will feel great.
