“I don’t want a lot for Christmas. There’s just one thing I need. I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree…”
Ok, enough Mariah!
But, seriously, we have every reason to get into the holiday spirit because there are no challenging astrological aspects (ignore the upcoming Mercury retrograde) until December 26.
Let me repeat that.
NO CHALLENGING ASTROLOGICAL ASPECTS UNTIL DECEMBER 26.
Yes, that’s right – 20 days of astrological bliss that all begins with Venus moving into Aquarius.
Venus moving out of Capricorn and into Aquarius changes the dynamic of how the love goddess relates. In Capricorn, she is concerned with career and social standing; whereas, Venus in Aquarius is concerned with our relationships with our friends, the groups we belong to, networking, and our relationship to the greater collective.
So, some fun stuff that should usher in plenty of holiday parties and rockin’ around that big ole Christmas tree!
On a deeper level, the purpose of Venus in Aquarius is two-fold. First, it represents a cycle where ideas, opinions, and conversations are amplified and helps us understanding ‘our world’ better. Secondly, Venus in Aquarius is cool and detached, and it has an inherent dislike of emotional intensity and prefers rational communication. It’s a 3-week cycle of controlling your emotional response and attempting to use your wise mind when relating to others.
While Venus is in Aquarius, it’s an excellent time to reach out to others and take advantage of all your connections. Contact a friend you haven’t spent time with in a while, and go out for coffee or you can join a new group that shares like-minded ideas. You will find that the people around you will be more social and this could lead to future opportunities that will help you improve your life.
Venus makes only harmonious aspects (um, hurray!) while she is in Aquarius – and all of them occur on Christmas Day.
It’s going to be a great month for relationships. Take advantage of it.
Venus will remain in Aquarius until January 3, 2017.
