Jupiter’s change of sign is not really the true beginning of a new cycle but the revisiting of an old one. Look out for those themes of going back – to something that was left on the back burner, to a plan or project that was ditched but now comes back in a different guise, to a relationship or attraction that you thought had run its course … and so on. The theme is Take 2.
Virgo’s skill for analysis and precision reach their full potential through Mercury, planet of the mind, but these same qualities of perfectionism can be passion killers for Venus. After all, what lover, partner, friend, child wants to feel as if they are constantly being scrutinized, dissected under a microscope and given marks out of ten? Ever tried to “reason” with yourself or anyone else who’s in love or in a state of obsession? Oil and water come to mind.
If you want to breathe new life into your relationship and/or your sex life, find a new lover or move a mutual attraction to the next level then waste no time. It doesn’t get much more passionate and demonstrative than this.
Last week, between Thursday and Sunday, Mars made the opposition to Saturn and the and the square to Uranus, and this week it’s Venus’ turn to do the same thing. This time the aspects fall either side of that Mercury moment which is a tipping point in itself.
Mars and Venus both have to struggle through the Saturn – Uranus square before they unite on the other side, as we’re heading for a Venus – Mars conjunction at 19 Leo on 13 July. What’s suggestive right now is that there are hurdles to overcome and the phrase “the path to true love never ran smooth” leaps to mind!
