Venus Square Uranus – To Hell With Balance

Venus square Uranus

Venus square Uranus is a sensation-seeking relationship disruptor. People born with the aspect are renegade souls, inventors, and rut-busters.  Venus is the love and artistic nature. Every creative or romantic impulse these people has it met with an immediate challenge from Uranus: is this high-vibe enough? They don’t have the luxury of settling for less or opting for something safe.

They’re Anais Nin. Angelina Jolie, Prince, Russell Brand, Tyler – The Creator, Nick Cave, and Juliette Lewis. You can pick up the vibe in this statement below:

 

“To hell, to hell with balance! I break glasses; I want to burn, even if I break myself. And I want to live only for ecstasy. I’m neurotic, perverted, destructive, fiery, dangerous – lava, inflammable, unrestrained.”

Anais Nin

If you want to get more of a feel for the current Venus square Uranus voodoo, read Anais Nin.  She was born with it – or a close variant – Venus in Pisces square Uranus and Pluto.

Freed From The Pressure To Conform, They Generate A Unique Style.

Let’s leave the “neurotic, perverted and destructive” aspects out of it. Nin had more of a bourgeois construct to kick down than most of us.

But broadly, this is their Zeitgeist. It annihilates irrelevancy, make-believe roles in relationships or stagnation. It also means that they’re inventive with beauty, aesthetic and fashion. Freed from the pressure to conform, they generate their unique style.

And this energy is zapping around for the next week.  So even if you don’t have this energy by birth, you can hop on the frequency.  It’s the sort of vibe that inspires sudden bolts of insights or erratic love moves. They’re inexplicable but turn out to be genius. And, whether they’re pair-bonded or solo, Venus-Uranian people don’t muffle their individuality.

Their “not caring what anyone thinks of them” is not an affectation. It’s real and they usually got that way via a definitive event as a young adult or unusual circumstances early in life.

Thoughts?

If there wasn’t an Anais Nin, it would be necessary to invent her.

shocks me how much hate there is for anais here. if u read her work and saw her influence on henry miller–or even just rented the movie henry and june, i think u might have a different opinion….

Back here in the Midwest- I sometimes feel bad that I don’t have a more important/glamorous job/life at this 2nd Saturn Return. I don’t totally “fit in” anywhere- Uranus squares my ASC from the 9th. So Uranus now is opposite my Libra Mercury – trine MC opp NN bang on my Aries SN. Borders 5th-6th. Dined out with two old chums. Immediately regretted that I missed weekly gathering with my current best fit tribe in nearby locale which always lifts me up. I have few friends from my youth – because I am not that person any more. When they… Read more »

*I chose to not do a verbal smackdown. Moon was on my Gem Mars square Pluto. Very small restaurant.* I had to laugh at this phrasing – but wow – sounds like a very uncomfortable & disappointing experience. But you know what? I think it’s good to have these close encounters with the devolved kind – especially during Nodal triggers – it’s is like a *take stock* moment. It shows you where you’re at – maybe even you get to count your blessings, as in your case – & gives you the resolve to continue the good fight – which… Read more »

Skarab, thank you. This means a lot. It was shocking- and I played it safe.

This brilliant piece in The Guardian on Brexit by Gary Younge- long and well worth the time. The take on Tory, Labor UKIP apply here in The States.

We regard our Euro and UK elder cousins as having it all together- multiple parties, culture and arts, diversity- universal health insurance.

And yes resolved to continue the good fight. One meal at a time.

Ok I’m feeling this post too I have Uranus at 23 degrees of Scorpio in the 6th house – I’m not deep enough into my astro to know exactly what this means BUT my work life is getting LIT UP Destructive tendencies are not really my thing but I am feeling fiery but it’s translating as a quiet confidence that I was lacking before. Mystic you wrote in June’s monthly horoscope that Taurus’ born between May 4 – 10 were in for a big last week of June (May 9 here) and I’m ready for whatever gifts the universe wants… Read more »

Re: The Anais quote – Could perhaps best be titled “Love & Other Drugs” w/ that Pisces Venus, no? She was mega-Neptune; a Sun/Jupiter conjunct in Pisces, trine Neptune PLUS her chart ruler (Venus) located in Pisces. If you like wide orbs, she could even be considered to have a loose Venus/Neptune square, which can be pretty dangerous when you’re a Libra Rising, Pisces Sun. There is a difference between acknowledging the shadow of your character defects honestly, in the hopes of healing them, vs. reveling in them. The quote above sounds way too much like she’s wallowing in them,… Read more »

So gone over that 10 month LZ crush. I’m like megh now. No investment gets no return. Considering that EVERY damn Tarot reading has the Two of Cups and a King card (many times the Page, Pentacle AND King of the suite turns up in one reading) plus lovers lets me know better is near. Had a sensual epiphany today which left me on a heartgasm high for hours. And Maxwell announced a damn tour. I will be there to see him for the FIFTH time. My dream was always to see him, D’Angelo and Prince on the same stage… Read more »

Anais Nin sometimes strikes me as what some people today classify as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl but of her time. The kind of female figure some men idolize: the sprite from whose perspective they wish to see the world, full of beauty, fantasy and studied innocence. And she was a writer so she was constantly crafting that desired mind state. She knew this stereotype suited her, helped her get what she needed from men but secretly raged at the ways it confined her. So she further manipulated everyone out of spite. Especially men for all their conferred privileges. I… Read more »

Clearly, a woman who didn’t have the same opportunities as she did couldn’t even find ways to challenge men even if privately like Anais. I think she secretly resented that she was put in that particular place by the men in her life.

Anais, irritating and gushing, but seen in the zeitgeist of her time, iconic…a bit like Timothy Leary saying tune in, turn on and drop out. She represents the need for irreverence, (not irrelevance)— and that anyone who truly explores freedom then learns restraint and limitation in the best sense of the word. …. for the love and sake of personal sanity. Good to bend, good to learn, good to ground.

So how do we combine the venus-pluto + mars direct ++++++++ dark moon?
It’s like a perfect trap, no?

My close friend is going positively crazy over his new love object. when is the good time to go forward with it? and is it really not cool to go forward until the new moon? and isn’t it sad that after the new moon the venus-pluto intensity will just wear off?

LiliMM Member

Many privileged women who broke through sex role expectations and restraints sound quaint- entitled- contrary for its own sake.

Their privilege afforded them reflection and time which working folk did not have.

All the same- early sexual contact is domestic abuse/violence and results in PTSD. Reactivity and oppositional behavior are common reactions-

Have not read Nin in years- my Gem-Sun-Pluto mother owned several volumes-

Game on – this shit is LIT! This Venus/Pluto/Uranus deal has been My Zap Zone Life for the last 2 years, but have a hell of a Venus Return this year that’s going to make up for all of it. Going to be a banner year on the Venus front – I can feel it!

I haven’t been able to deal with make – believe roles in relationship since I’ve had Saturn in Scorpio opposing my Moon. As harsh as it was – there are planets dealing fine with Saturn opposing and the Moon is NOT one of them – I’ve come to realize that I cannot convince myself to be with someone just for not being alone. I. Cannot. And as good as some guy I have recently met is, there’s just something missing. It’s a shame since we want the same things and he’s honest and has a job and all but I… Read more »

She had an “affair” with her father…definitely can’t leave out neurotic, destructive, perverted. I met her briefly in the mid 70’s…before I knew anything about her….projected a meek little mouse…and looked like one as well…prim and spinsterish…so much for appearances

well by then she was in her 70s and married to the same man since the 20s…as she said, “We see things not as they are, but as we are!” She also gave people really terrible make overs apparently

I spent my late teens/early 20’s reading Anais Nin so very influential for me at that time, coming of age in L.A…. I was pushing some boundaries of sexuality then, for sure. Haven’t read her since, I don’t think.. Sun and Venus transiting on my Kataka Ascendant right now.. Some things culminating, but there is a lot of restraint where I usually do not restrain. I am a little embarrassed to share this but I confess that I would love nothing more than to get it on with my housemate before he moves away in two weeks. He is Kataka… Read more »

I don’t blame you. Totally get it.

BUT, it’s probably a bad idea Flowerchild. Keep the healing, don’t sleep with him, as he will be gone in two weeks, possibly leaving you pining.

You deserve someone good, cute who could STAY. xx

flowerchild

Thanks, yeah, it’s probably best not to go there! I don’t know if he would allow himself to go for it anyway, even if I made a move. I will miss him, though, whether we slept together or not. I think it’s good for me to practice restraint in this situation in terms of my own personal development, to act outside of my usual pattern of being more reckless with my boundaries when it comes to sex. With this guy, though, every time I’ve looked at the Tarot, either on here or in my own cards, it’s Cups everywhere on… Read more »

Hey good for you in making the connections that this is a chance for your own growth.

Boundaries are beautiul! And healthy.

SELF PRESERVATION.

Ps: I know precious little about Tarot. Maybe if you stick this out, your “cup” will runneth over (with lasting good stuff that STAYS). Feel free to laugh 🙂 but that’s how I see it! Glad you are, and have been healing FC. xx

This, this is the one I’m feeling. I spent the entire Aries moon like a pillar of rage and fury. Thankfully it has subsided a bit, but it also felt amazing to FEEL so much again. I fear the ZZ has permanently shifted my standards of intensity to where everything since is bland mush. Hail then to this week!

What is it about Anais that makes me want to yell, just STFU and calm down ? Maybe it’s that some things need to be processed internally, left unsaid, just exuded….Yeah you want to break stuff and screw everyone and be dangerous .. Well so what nut job ?

You know, I am the same. I read that and found myself thinking, ‘Well that’s alright if you’re Anais Nin, but what if you’re just me going to the supermarket, sorting out tax receipts and being on hold to my phone company about my recent huge bill?’
I should love her, and I sort of do – I’m a multi-Pisces w Neptune sq Venus and opp Jupe – but my humourless Cap moon just wants to tell her to shut up.

Redlipstick Virgo

I agree I find her writing completely self indulgent and designed for max shock value – she does have a beautiful descriptive turn of phrase and the fetish of the beautiful and the ugly mixed together. Can’t say I like her but her writing makes you notice her – the earlier Madonna of the literary world.
