Venus enters Aquarius tonight where it will transit until the 26th of March. Venus is the planet of love, sex and romance, and the detached energies of Aquarius are not completely comfortable when merged with romantic Venus.
People with Venus in Aquarius are drawn to unconventional relationships which often start as friendships. They value their freedom above everything else, and their rebellious natures can cause issues in partnerships due to them appearing as standoffish and uncaring because their thoughts are focused on some socio-economic issue rather than the relationship. Venus in Aquarius is looking for someone who shares their vision and dreams for the future.
Venus represents the love nature and love needs of a person, and Aquarius needs a partner who has prominent Aquarius or Uranus in their own chart. Strongly humanitarian, a first date with a Venus in Aquarius person may involve discussions about where you stand on important moral and political issues.
Uranus ruled Venus in Aquarius people are attracted to the unusual and futuristic, and the ability to think outside of the box is one of their greatest skills. They have a touch of the mad scientist and they are forward thinking and progressive.
Always true to themselves, Venus Aquarians are “fixed” so not very willing to change for their partners and they often stubbornly refuse to recognise their own flaws. However, once they find a partner who accepts them for who they are, and matches them intellectually, they commit fully to that person for the long term and they are usually loyal and honest lovers.
Venus in Aquarius people are very focused on their friends and groups or societies that they belong to and often find their partner within one of these common interest groups or sub-cultures.
During the transit of Venus through Aquarius, single people may find love through friends or common interest groups and couples may enjoy socialising and joining new groups together. Aquarius is a selfless sign concerned with justice and fairness which will be the focus of the next few weeks.

In just a couple of hours, a full supermoon occurs at 1° Virgo. A full Moon is when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, so in this case the Sun is in the water sign of Pisces. Full moons illuminate life areas that are in opposition to each other and as the opposition is a stressful aspect there will be some tension involved which leads to an ending or changes, however the astrology of the full moon is mostly positive with the potential for breakthroughs, growth, committment and adventures. A supermoon occurs when the Moon is closest to the earth and the effects of this lunation last for about two weeks.
The energy of the January eclipse season created much instability and stress with the effects still being felt in the present day, but the full moon will ground some of this erratic energy, and we’ll start to see positive and tangible results. Relationships that have been hit with multiple hardships will enter a calmer period with both partners feeling fully commited to the relationship and the responsibilities that come with it.
We can use the spiritual gifts of both Pisces and Virgo to guide us through the next few weeks. The signs seem very different, but working together at their highest frequencies they make a complete system helping us to develop our full potential. Virgo helps us manage the small details when Pisces helps us to see the bigger picture. Virgo uses logic and the left brain when making decisions and Pisces uses intuition and claircognizance. Both signs teach us that our highest calling is to be of service to our fellow humans, and the animal and plant kingdoms.

Chiron enters Aries on Monday and this is one of the most important transits of the year. Chiron will remain in Aries until 2027.
What is Chiron?
In Greek Mythology, Chiron was a Master healer but he was unable to save himself from the deadly wound that he received from a poisoned arrow. In the birth chart, the placement of Chiron, which is a minor planet, represents our most painful wound, the one that we received early in life that we struggle to heal and continues to be a “sore spot.” This wounding may manifest over and over again, attracting the same archetypes and situations until the native acknowledges and makes peace with the wound and banishes any person or situation from their life that is of a similar energy to the original wounding.
As well as wounds, Chiron in a birth chart can indicate musical and artistic gifts and talents, healing abilities including natural medicine and energy healing, a flair for Astrology and someone who has the ability to act as a teacher or guide for other people.
The lowest frequency of a Chiron wound would be to hurt others in the same way that we ourselves were hurt. We can work with it from a higher vibration and use it to help other people. One example of this would be a victim of child abuse who later goes on to train as a counsellor – she still lives with the pain but she uses her experience to give children the help that she never received.
Chiron’s energy is Shamanic. When I read charts, I’ve noticed that Shamanic people have a “strong” or heavily aspected Chiron, frequently placed in the 12th house which gives the person the natural ability to travel through different spiritual realms. These are usually people who have suffered through long periods of physical or mental illness and had difficult childhoods, but always felt in tune with the spirit world. Chiron people frequently feel alienated and shunned by society and are often diagnosed with disorders and end up on medication. The Shamanic view of some mental illness is that it can sometimes be an initiatory soul crisis which aids spiritual development and encourages the person to surrender to the healing path and answer the call. Finding the meaning and lessons in this crisis is to unlock the cure.
During Chiron’s transit through Pisces, we surrendered to our wounds and pain and we felt compassion and empathy for other wounded beings. There was a tendency to “wallow” over our problems and play the martyr or victim. Some issues were caused by loose boundaries and deception and we may have glossed over the flaws of others and worn rose tinted glasses in our relationships rather than facing the truth. Many people suffered at the hands of psychic vampires who used manipulation in order to tug at our heartstrings. We made excuses for the people who hurt us and contributed to our own unhappiness by giving them a place in our lives.
Chiron in Aries will bring opportunities to heal our identities and we’ll become pro active in our approach to healing ourselves. No longer content with wallowing and reliving the past, we declare war on pain and on our (no longer hidden) enemies.
Armed with the wisdom gleaned from Chiron’s journey through Pisces, we aggressively fight for the right to be our true selves and to break through the situations in our lives that cause us to feel disempowered. Many of us follow the same old routine – work a 9-5 job, watch TV, get married, have kids, buy a house – but is this who you really are, or are you only conforming to society’s expectations of you? What is your identity when all of this is stripped away? Are you working in an office every day, living in suburbia when the real you would rather sell everything and drive a camper van around the world?
Chiron in Aries gives us the opportunity to live authentically but first of all we may have to experience an identity crisis and work towards peeling away the layers of falseness that we’ve worn over the years. The transit is the next phase of our spiritual awakening and the things that used to be important to us, like job titles and celebrities, may no longer interest us as much. We may experience increased conflict during this transit but we recover quickly as we learn to take back power from those who stole it from us. Reaching another stage of initiation on the path to enlightenment, it’s time for us to master the element of fire and review how we express it in our lives.
As the earth switches gears to move towards a different frequency and dimension, we’ll see more clearly through the illusions of society around us and as a result of that, we’ll unapologetically upset the apple cart and set fire to the status quo. As we shake off the shackles of the control system that we were born into, we furiously fight for our independence and freedom and demand the right to be ourselves. During Chiron’s transit in Pisces, many of us became aware that we were being manipulated by the fake news of the mainstream media and it was difficult to identify fiction from fact. Armed with the truth, the energy of Chiron in Aries helps us to form a new, authentic world which begins with the self realisation of each individual.

Currently all of the planets in the skies are in direct motion (not in retrograde). This is a wonderful opportunity to make some real progress at last and our lives feel like they’re moving on quickly. Such a difference from the last quarter of 2018 when we were hit with one retrograde after another and felt stuck and bogged down by never ending problems. Now the chains have fallen off and it’s up to us to take advantage of the new energy and create positive changes. Some persistant problems may seem to accelerate during the next few months which is the universe’s way of trying to push us towards a solution.
