Dark Side Of The Venus

Venus conjunct Jupiter

Venus conjunct Jupiter at the same Venus turns Direct spins the whole deal into a blur of Love Zombies, Central European Bankers, and Vampire Romance.

O.M.G it’s real; it’s happening. I feel like we are all interconnected on this matter, right here, right now. Think High Functioning Flakes, Fuqed Up Clueless Whores, Pseudo-Intellectual Astro-Bitches, Bad Gurus, Your Ex, My Ex. WHAT IS HAPPENING? 

Venus is stationing Direct – at an absolute standstill, astrologically speaking – and at 7 Gemini. This is an Eclipse point being triggered again at the end of Nov AND Jupiter is trundling merrily back and forth over it till April 2013, scattering juju dust as he goes.  So anyway, think strange w.t.f. communiques out of nowhere OR it’s just your brain doing the strange w.t.f communiques out of nowhere, messaging you with ideas or emo about a relationship so gone, it may as well be on Alpha Centauri.

Yes, it’s psychologically infuriating but probably good as a detox. Like a colonic that takes out lingering toxic-love-beliefs bacteria and leaves your tummy flatter at the end. YES! No, you should not obey urges to power-stalk or make whimsical contact in a light-hearted and carefree not giving-a-fuq manner. Yes if you are Mr or Mrs. Zombie-Hell right now, things are getting real tense. The penny is dropping. The final cliche may soon be nigh.

As always, some peeps are copping this more than others, do your Horoscopes for the intimate deets and SHARE HERE.  Is Venus Direct a hassle for you? Or does it feel like salvation? Thoughts?

yes, I’ve lost the fuqn because mercury is in leo and I decided it was déclassé at best and profane at worst.

I just had a whole post about how this venus thing worked for me but then I realised none of it matters cos it’s over.

Let us all move forward bathed in radiant light.

Venus just about to go direct means I stumble across old journal and get lots of insight into about 9 years ago. Then wake up and buy, without knowing I would…, a vintage chinese silk cocktail dress. And daughter who just got home is sleeping VERY late and I am drumming nails b/c need to get on with my day!:)

Gemini is in the seventh house of both myself and my ex husband. We dated at 14 years of age in high school. Marriage ended badly (in 2004????), but we have gotten back together after years of getting to know each other again during this retrograde. Gemini seems fitting as we both spent a lot of time over the years trying to figure out if our relationship was what we really wanted. So is, and I feel like this is the person I will be spending a good portion of my life with. If we could work our way through… Read more »

Had a great day. FINALLY felt like I’ve overcome my commitment crap and felt proud that I had done so well with Saturn in Libra issues. Put the shut down on all the vampire men in my life. I’ve taken things very slowly with Venus rx and Leo (Virgo Stellium/Libra Moon) I’ve been seeing, who has been wonderful to me….

…until I realized that he stole money from me today.

Venus retro has been cool, for me at least. Gone right back through my 12th. I am one of those people who emerges from an abyss of silence to contact friends during venus retros. Happily, I only contact the good people, not elusive would-be lovers or exes, whom I frankly never speak to again after it’s over (I don’t do the “staying friends” thing if it was serious). Lol and they never contact me either, so everyone wins! Anyway, so Le Leo came to stay and I had a little personal breakthrough c/o him. An old acquaintance also made contact;… Read more »

Pluto and Saturn stuff take TIME, like more time than you think is possible, just one day feels like a year. What you have is awareness. That is basically all you need. If there’s something to “fix” or alter you’ll just start doing it gradually; if it’s something you need to realise and love about yourself, you’ll just get to know that part of yourself gradually. Me, i’m a pusher. “Oh what’s that? It must need fixing!” But no. Imagine how deep a Piscean can go… well what we have hidden from ourselves is even deeper. Time works differently there..… Read more »

thanks Mille. Also, was Saturn going direct on my NN (also Libra, 4th house) as well.. maybe helped.

My home environment has also changed as of this morn, but in a ‘real-life’ way. Not moving house, just other things. a new idea about where I can establish a little creative work-space: the attic! Needs some cleaning but should do pretty nicely…

Pi

and, you’re right about the time stuff I think. Pushing things can have its benefits – I am less adept at that! lol. How does that work for you tho – maybe it’s good to actively hunt results. I’m a kind of ‘let’s move around to the other side for a bit, do some studies, note our observations, give things time, see what emerges, let the system be itself but observe closely’ – maybe it’s the nature lover in me – you can’t hurry (human) nature..? Probably makes me a shit business-hustler-type person 😉

Oh no how i envy that, Pi, it’s a fantastic quality! i’m well aware mostly i can’t leave well enough alone. It does have its upside but you know life is not a constant battle it’s for living 😉 I think that part of my nature is connected to all the squares i mentioned just now to emmaru on the other post (title?) But you know i’m still a Piscean and procrastination can also be my dirty li’l secret tho i prefer to call it kairos.

If it feels right go with it. My period of uncontrollable desire towards an unavailable male did not end well. But I don’t regret a single second of it – as a matter of fact I love to mull over the memories. We are still friends. My time with him completely changed my psych and I reckon he was a lesson from the universes for me to meet my husband and be able to love him properly.

I had a dream last night that was vivid and special, but not extra special. Just a nice dream, no big woop. I thought of it a few times over the course of the day, and wondered why it kept coming back to me: there was nothing profound about that dream.

Then 12 hours later, POW– it hit me! Very Profound Dream! The dark side of Venus– into the light. Amazing, enlightening, my head’s been spinning ever since about the capabilities of the human spirit! Just incredible.

Happy Venus Direct (almost)! I’m so looking forward to what comes next 😀

strange communiques from your own mind……..the other night I was busy doing stuff in the office when thoughts about what feeds crystals and how their shape is determined came to mind. The thoughts were so strong that I had to write them down and I have no idea where they came from. They were along the lines of:- It is not the source of growth that shapes a crystal, it is the feeder factors from the outside that cause the shape a crystal will end up, the confines of the ‘space’ to be filled.

huh, well if you want to stick with the straight science of it all, it’s not too far off the mark – crystal growth is determined by how rapidly the magma / medium is cooling and if there is a void it can grow into …. things like that… its specific shape is determined by what minerals are in it (e.g. compare calcite, quartz, mica, hematite) I have forgotten much of my uni geology but I don’t doubt that there is a mineralogist out there who would clarify further. but that wasn’t your point obv.

Speaking of the dark side of Venus, has anyone read the Inana’s Descent? Inana’s one of the many goddesses associated with Venus. She goes to hell to see her sister. When Inana’s trapped in hell, nothing on earth has sex. So other another god negotiates her released. Her sister is left with the pain of giving birth. Its like Persephone as an origin myth for seasons, only sex. I can’t believe there isn’t even an asteroid named after her. Venus does go to hell and back.

Sure thing! My favorite bit is this:
“If thou openest not the gate to let me enter,
I will break the door, I will wrench the lock,
I will smash the door-posts, I will force the doors.
I will bring up the dead to eat the living.
And the dead will outnumber the living.”

That’s from a version called “Istar’s Descent” http://www.sacred-texts.com/ane/ishtar.htm. If you google inana or inana’s descent you can find other versions. Google is amazing. Unfortunately, from a historical/social science accuracy perspective – all the goddesses turn into each other eventually. Hard to place origin on origin.

It’s so beautiful, Inana’s Descent. Like so many of the myths, I find the bits where the gods save/spare the goddesses totally irksome. Getting my PIAB on: some theorize that many women have struggled historically, personally, because of the lack of sisters doing it for themselves in traditional Hebrew, Greek, and Roman myths. I second that hypothesis. In “Paint the sky and dance: Women and the new myths” (2001), Castronova suggests that we need to write new stories for a New Millenium, full of female heroines: “to guide us in the New Age… to inspire the new vision for a… Read more »

I think Enki was a cool god. I mean, he’s a man, but all about fertility. Myths in those days were much more gendered balanced. For instance, Inana puts her lover in hell in her place, but his sister fights for him, so the sister and he take turns in hell.

milleunanotte

Women didn’t record those myths. Silly old things weren’t taught to write back then, were we? So who recorded ‘our’ stories, the mythology of women? Yes old men. Notice the gods use their powers heroically or in ambition, while the goddesses use theirs to manipulate, wreak vengeance or look pretty and probably suffer violation. Genderised morality mythologies of the patriarchy… no wonder they all morph into one woman, original distinctions lost. Or polarised – the good Venus is sexy and beautiful, the others go to hell or are sinner harpies of some kind.

I don’t know if I’m feeling this or not. Surreality, yes, and I think it’s my Neptune conjunct NN/Neptune in Pisces asc talking. Or is it? *shrugs* No old relationship emo stuff popping up for me, no exes… No strange communique. I would welcome some strange communique! On one hand, I have this fantastic yet vague sense of surreality; on the other, it’s like, “Well, I have some admin shit to do. And I kind of feel like a nap, too.” Yawn!!

Saturn in Libra was all over my natal Moon/Uranus conj. Venus in Gemini is all over my natal Saturn and Sun stellium (whole lotta planets there too).. I’ve been Saturned even when I should be getting Venused. To say I feel ripped off is an understatement. FB’d the ex/idealised-to-the-max lover from ’94 (yes, I’m learning impaired). To my surprise he responded and proved how annoying he actually is. Huge blinkers removed from love eyes. Am still attracting BDL’s (beautiful, dangerous losers) by the bucketload. Shiny, pretty glimmering ones who may or may not be psychos. Also was at a wedding… Read more »

As I’m a Sag rising this sounds like Saturn and Venus have done you a favour. Getting rid of the dross and crap ready for the AWESOME. I do know it’s not that simple when you’re the one experiencing it. To me it reads like the Universe has given you a gift. xx

You’re right Empress, but yes, in the midst it was crap. That said I just reread my own comment when I spotted yours and lol’d. Even I thought I sounded like a whiny bitch!
Sometimes I think the act of writing down your bitcherel in a public space and the heavenly catharsis it generates is so what gets you through and past.

That probably explains why I woke up this morning with the worst taste in my mouth from a dream I had about confronting my feelings for a guy I built up a flirtation with over this past semester and haven’t seen, despite exchanging numbers, since. Not sure how to deal with it, honestly. Pretty sure he’s not done being in my life — just a gut feeling I had — but thinking I might have to wait until August or the new semester before I talk to him again. Funny — I recall something being said about things starting in… Read more »

i have venus in sag 1st house 7 degrees, so venus in gem is opposing it in my 7th. as a libra perhaps this has something to do with why i’m so tired? or is that saturn station near my 29 degree libra sun? eh? can’t for the life of me figure out what’s wrong! as far as relationship goes…well its interesting…my guy has venus and the moon in gemini, and being an aries rising has saturn transiting his 7th. so there should be some drama going on on both our ends, no? not really… i’ve been easily irritated, very… Read more »

The eclipse in mid-November falls right on my Sun and Pluto makes its last pass over my progressed Sun a month later. Fun times ahead!

Scorpio? My NN is in Sagittarius so the eclipses in Gem/Sag have been…releasing with no building, just releasing, releasing, releasing the old life. Looking forward to a building phase.

gbs

Yes, the eclipse in mid-November is in Scorpio. And the NN is moving into Scorpio some time this fall, along with Saturn. Yikes!

Perhaps the eclipses had to trigger all that releasing in you first before the building could begin? Do you have any planets in Scorpio? Saturn will be sextiling your Virgo over the next two years, so that should be nice. A lot can be easily mastered and assimilated when Saturn trines and sextiles are active.

Well, that is welcome news to me. Saturn transiting my 12th and 1st houses has been challenging. Non-stop releasing from about 2007 to now. Looking forward to a time of slow and steady progress. Nothing in Scorpio but Vesta. Nothing in Taurus either.MM is always talking about spreadsheeting…it must be Saturn moving into my 2nd house because I feel a budget coming on after years of what has felt like bare knuckle survival mode inside.BTW – I really, I don’t know why, but I don’t think – with Pluto in Cap and Saturn in Scorpio that Scorps – are going… Read more »

Venus is definitely bringing weirding moments, to the tune of The Twilight Zone. My relationship will be ending too, but it’s a good thing and a fuqing huge relief. The charades cannot go on any longer.

She’s transiting my 9th house, bringing lots of opportunities for travel, which is a totally unexpected “weirding” balm.

This Venus Retrograde has been a thorough mix of amazing and painful. There was a guy I’d had severely fallen for beginning of last year, we’d stopped talking after a few months, and I was a total “love zombie” I guess, which is very unlike me since I usually get over someone in a matter of days sometimes. But it was actually me contacting him that made me get over him. When I did, I didn’t expect him to respond (which he didn’t). But I needed some sense of closure, and I got it. However, there’s another guy. I don’t… Read more »

All was good. But strange WTF communique happened Sunday leading to brain WTFage since then. Have Venus and Jupiter conjuncting my Sun right now 😮

Ugh, my creepy ex came back from Alpha Centaury and re-entered in a grand style (crashed a work party where I was mistress of ceremonies). I didn’t want to go back into it, but then my beloved granddad died and I ran back into his arms and bed a few times for him to then tell me he wants to be friends with bennies 🙁 I’m really sick of this because it’s the third of such entrances he’s made (he used my birthday late last summer as an excuse for the second return)… …I’ve been reminding myself of creepy beaus… Read more »

Sounds familiar. An ex loved sharpening all the knives he had. Plus whenever we went for dinner at someone’s house and helped in the kitchen he would shake his head if asked to use a blunt knife. Drove him nuts. And yes, he would sharpen theirs too lol

So, now I know about Mars and knives. Gem man and young Saggy have a Neptune/Sun synastry. How can I not warn them? They are annoying as hell to be around.

it also bears the hallmark of the people blockbuster get to do their overdue fines collections – they don’t tell you who they are and make random evasive text/mobile calls and then in about 6 months you get the letter saying you’ll be charged penalties for ignoring those anonymous attempts at contact and you’re going to court if you don’t pay your $20 overdues plus the $90 penalties. Then when you try to work it out because you realise they are a legitimate business and not some crazed stalker they’ll ignore YOUR calls and emails and slap some more charges… Read more »

Feeling strangely liberated, I thought perhaps it was Saturn direct in my 7th. Feel like I’ve learned a lot in a relatively short space of time. Realised that my instincts are always right and I should always, always trust them. I’m lucky that my suspicious 8th house Scorpio sun means I wasn’t taken in by a Cap/super Sag/Venus-Uranus in Scorpio who seems to actually have a harem of women at his disposal and be a total liar, I just feel bored and whatever about the whole thing. Really, whatever. I think I’ve finally learnt that in these situations it’s not… Read more »

Charley, any day you can congratulate yourself for being honest is an awesome, amazing day. Because YES, we all have issues, not having inauthenticity as one of them however is significant. It’s not just about lying to someone else and getting one’s way, it’s the fact that the more peeps do that, the more they buy into their BS and the cloudier they get. You nor I may be perfect, but being in the truth of that imperfection attracts what can be truly soul and life expanding, vs yet another dead end road.
