Virgo Venus conjunct Mars is exact at 5:10 PM PST this evening. The Yin meets the Yang. The two forces of love and art, and energy and passion, unite in the alchemical stage of conjunctio. I passed the El Rey theatre last night and saw this strange billing: “I DO” starring Sara and Barry. I thought, no it couldn’t really be a wedding, right? But it was. How perfect for a Venus/Mars conjunction. Then, a young man informed me that the bride is five months pregnant, even better for a Virgo Venus conjunct Mars, which is nothing if not practical in wanting the baby to be born legitimate. This is truly a propitious moment, not just for romantic love, but for a recommitment to the beauty and boundless possibilities of life. The urge to procreate and to create is fundamental to the continuation of our species. Not just because the union of a woman and a man results in a baby, but because the spark of love ignites the desire to live. Same sex relationships and the impulse to create artistic progeny generate the same fundamental renewal and belief in life that allows our species to continue to grow and thrive.
More on Virgo Venus conjunct Mars
Venus conjunct Mars natally is sensitive and excitable, and yet can be tactless and insensitive to others. This is the heat of incipient creativity, which can burn everything in its path that is not essential to its own existence. Bringing a new work into the world takes boundless enthusiasm and some necessary selfishness. Make space in your life today for your creativity. Tomorrow brings a Jupiter/Chiron opposition. This is an opportunity to heal and soothe old hurts. The trick is that you must first acknowledge suffering and look it squarely in the face before you can transform.
