Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 3/5/2014: Venus in Aquarius

Steady as she goes. Moon is still Taurus, seeking to build material security and is well-supported by resources, optimism and a sense of balance…so perhaps tending to your checkbook is in order. Or your tax returns?

At 4:03PM ET, Venus leaves social-climbing Capricorn for eccentric, egalitarian Aquarius. Venus refers to how we need to express ourselves socially. It also refers to women, art, beauty and money; in health matters Venus refers to the belt line area of the body (and internal organs at the belt line, as well as the thyroid and the throat.  Venus also rules copper, which is an important indicator of economic growth in the commodities markets.

Aquarius is a airy (mental), fixed (organizing) energy. Keywords for Aquarius include innovation, eccentricity, friendship, humanitarian, unconventional, rocket scientist and/or mad genius. If you were born with the Sun in Aquarius, you have the energy to innovate and intellectualize with others. If your Moon is in Aquarius, you need to be socially significant — and dare I say appreciated for it. You probably need the freedom to be your own unusual self. I learned these nifty, pithy expressions of solar energy and lunar needs from my mentor, Noel Tyl. “I love you, but don’t take it personally” is another nifty, pithy Aquarian  expression — and I came up with that one all by myself. If you have Venus in Aquarius, chances are you especially know what I’m talking about.

A good example of a celebrity born with Venus in Aquarius is Ellen DeGeneres, as mentioned in Monday’s forecast. Don’t you feel like she’s everybody’s friend? Friendship is key with Venus in Aquarius — and so many other signs just don’t get it. I once knew a man with Venus in Scorpio who was dying to seduce a woman with Venus in Aquarius. He even knew something about astrology, too — but still had no idea how to reel in the quirky, electric spark that he so wanted to experience with depth, power and control. Since he did not ask for my advice, I did not offer it, but if he had, I would have said, “be her friend.”
