Venus Rules Our Friday with an Iron Fist

Friday is the day of Venus, and she is not going to let us forget it today. This morning and early afternoon are going to be filled to the brim with three tumultuous squares and a tense conjunction. Take the day to rest if you can for the sake of your mental health.

The Moon Is Square Venus at 12:06 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in Aquarius forms a square with Venus in Scorpio. This transit turns our minds to our needs for love and affection. If we don’t feel seen or appreciated by a partner or friend, it could lead to some moodiness or impulsivity. And that’s something that could be disastrous to act upon.

This tends to be a very sentimental transit and can have us toiling the day away in our memories. It could also put you in the mood to seek out people from your past.

Serious work matters will feel like an uphill trudge right now. If you can push things off until tomorrow, seeking out people or activities that bring you pleasure and joy will be much more beneficial for your psyche.

The Moon Is Conjunct Saturn at 12:15 AM

About ten minutes later, the moon in Aquarius forms a conjunction with Saturn, also in Aquarius. This transit can bring up some tensions in close relationships. It could also make you want to distance yourself from that discomfort. If you stay present and face these challenging situations head-on, it could be an amazing opportunity for growth and healing. But sometimes the healthiest thing you can do for a relationship is to give it a little space and spend some time on your own.

Venus Is Square Saturn at 1:55 AM

Later, Venus in Scorpio forms a square with Saturn in Aquarius. You might be feeling a bit sad, bored, or lonely. Your mood is infectious to those around you right now and could lead to some issues in your relationships if you take things out on them by laying guilt trips or moping around.

This is especially true with your familial relationships. More specifically, the relationship with your parents. You might need to keep to yourself and ride out this funk for the day.

The Moon Is Square Uranus at 12:53 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Aquarius squares off with Uranus in grounded Taurus. This might have you feeling a bit jumpy and impulsive, leading to some not-too-stellar sleep tonight. You’ll probably have some difficulty concentrating this morning, and you’ll need to find an outlet for all that energy – or it will come bursting out of you in inconvenient ways. This is not the time for mundane or routine tasks. It’s time to get out and try something new.

You’ll also have a hard time relaxing, and you may have an overwhelming feeling that something BIG is about to happen. If you don’t get the newness or excitement you crave today, you may go looking for it. Just try to keep yourself out of trouble for the last part of the day.

You could be on the receiving end of an emotional outburst from someone else today. And while your instinct will be to run and avoid, it will be important to stay and patiently work through what’s attempting to be said. Avoid lashing out in return. Sensitivity is key here, and while it might lead to an uncomfortable conversation, the air needs to be cleared.
