Venus Has Big Plans for Your Love Life Today

It would seem that Venus, planet (and goddess) of love and beauty, is ruling the skies today. She directs our attention to the romantic relationships in our lives, setting us up for a few weeks of pleasure-seeking, excitement, and adventure.

Venus is Sextile Saturn at 6:29 AM

This morning, Venus in Scorpio forms a sextile with Saturn in Capricorn. You may find yourself craving company or even companionship more than normal under this transit. But while you want to feel loved, you also want it to be real, not just fleeting lip service. You might be seeking validation, but you’re also doing your fair share of doting on others right now.

It could be possible for new relationships to begin under this transit, but you’ve got no time for flings. You’re looking for something that will stick. Falling for someone older and more serious or stable is a possibility.

This isn’t a lovesick phase, though. You might be looking, but you’ll do so with your head planted firmly on your shoulders. That means knowing who to steer clear of, and when to realize when a partnership has run its course.

The Moon is Trine Uranus at 9:31 AM

Later this morning, the moon in Capricorn forms a trine with Uranus in Taurus, and this transit could bring change and excitement after being a bit stagnant for a while. You’re feeling like you’re on the brink of something new, and you should go with your gut.

A little impulsivity is welcome today. Not only because it will get you out of a rut, but because it could initiate or rekindle relationships that could ultimately be beneficial.

You may find yourself drawn to people from different cultures or backgrounds than your own, which is always a good thing. You may also find that you’re attracted to someone new, and outside your typical “type.”

Keep an open mind today, and pay attention to new opportunities that may present themselves. It’s an opportune time to try something new, or to break out of routines that have either become stale or unhealthy. If you’re currently in a relationship that’s fully run its course, that could be brought to the surface today.

Venus Moves into Sagittarius at 10:18 AM

A short time later, Venus, the planet of love and desire, moves away from intense Scorpio and into the playful embrace of Sagittarius. If you’ve felt that your relationships were plagued by possessiveness, jealousy, and maybe even obsession over the past few weeks, you can expect things to begin feeling a good bit lighter.

Don’t get me wrong, Scorpio’s emotional intensity can be enjoyable in the right relationship, but Venus isn’t too comfortable there.

This is a time of exploration and adventure in your relationships. The focus is more on pleasure-seeking than possession. Though with that comes a possibility of recklessness.

Sagittarius hates to be bored, and all that playful energy might lead to a wandering eye if you find yourself growing tired of what’s right in front of you. Be gentle with the object of your affection, whether that be a committed partner or a new relationship.
