January 31st, “Ending the Month With A Bang – Venus, Jupiter and Pluto, Oh My!”

While in retrograde, Venus, planet of relationships and possessions (7th and 2nd houses respectively) asks us to review what me value in people, possessions and baggage.  Venus has been retrograde in Capricorn since November 20, 2013.  As a result, we’ve had lots of time to sift through our emotional and mental closets – particularly if you happen to have Venus retrograde in Capricorn in your birth chart. 

Today Venus goes stationary direct in thirteen degrees, thirty-three minutes of Capricorn.  The keyword here is ‘attachment.’  We are attached to what remains in our closets, i.e. the people and things that we value most. We’ve created a solid platform that will support the life we wish to build for ourselves. Love that has passed our personal litmus test thrives under Venus in Capricorn. The goddess of love tells us to be committed, dedicated and unflinchingly honest with our partners.  

Balanced attachment is a good thing.  It means you are

invested in the outcome and will work hard to keep your commitments on track.  However, attachment for attachment’s sake leads to possessiveness, both in relationships and in the material world.  Guard against being a clinging vine.  People need to be free to grow and clinging to things just makes you materialistic.  

In other news, Jupiter is in opposition with Pluto today.  If you feel as if you're running a marathon on a treadmill, you’re right.  Jupiter, the planet of fortune, has a difficult time moving your life forward against Pluto’s resounding, “NO!” Pick your battles during the next couple of days, but engage only after carefully redesigning your strategy.  Ears tend to be deaf right now, so if you can delay pursuit, do so. On February 5th Jupiter goes trine Chiron (wounded healer) and this energy salves bruised egos so that you’ll have a more congenial audience.
