How can your astrology be “good and bad” at the same time? This is both a logical question and an accusation often lobbed by skeptics society types. Actually, astrological phenoms are like any natural paradigm; the weather, our moods, a love affair.
Even the most evidently simple chemical interactions consist of multiple micro-events and are reliant on a trillion others. You can go be outside and elated by a sage-scented breeze but also note that you’re cold. It can be weird when you read a description of your natal astro or upcoming transits and some seem to contradict the others.
I mentioned the actor Olivia Wilde’s recent astro-proving evening on Instagram when it occurred but I’m reposting it here as it is such a brilliant example of “good/bad” astro in motion.
On stage introducing a screening of cool new movie you star in, wearing a cobalt blue crushed velvet pantsuit and silver cross necklace from your boyfriend Harry Styles = Venus, Jupiter + Neptune transit over your Sun-Mercury in Pisces…AKA epic.
Being served custody papers live on stage by your Virgo Ex who will later claim he had nothing to do with ‘the details’ – Saturn conjunct your Venus transit. AKA thank fuq it is only once every three decades.
Virgo Ex has plausible deniability but what Virgo does not do details? He did not check the astro though – serving papers with mercury in shadow of retrograde favours @oliviawilde
To expand this a little, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune over a Sun-Mercury in Pisces conjunction is a blessing of a transit, particularly if you have already have some creative game. It enhances self-actualization, inspires cosmic-level creativity and recognition at a higher level than you’ve been accustomed to.
Venus transits on their own raise romance, intimacy, sensuality and aesthetic prospects; the addition of the Pisces ruling planets Jupiter + Neptune turns it galactic. She was/is on a personal and professional high, flamboyantly illustrated (thank you Jupiter) via her being on stage/live television in a neptunian jumpsuit.*
Venus-wise, not only were her hair and style epic, she vibed sensually satisfied. So much for all the “good” astro, Saturn was also conjunct her Venus in Aquarius that very night – so mid-way through her triumphant moment, being honored for her performance, she’s served legal papers by her recent ex – that is peak Saturn.
There should be an award for keeping your cool at moments like that; it must have been incredibly undermining and she said as much in the court case, which she has just won btw. Hardly any astrological juxtapositions are this dramatic but it’s a good example of how things can play out.
