Saturn square Venus can be a tetchy vibe where we tend to second guess our relationships, artistry and goals, putting the breaks on natural enthusiasm. But not this time. Right now, Saturn and Venus are in what’s known as mutual reception.
NOTE: Mutual reception occurs when two planets are transiting each others ruling signs at the same time.
Right now, Saturn, the natural ruler of Capricorn, is in Libra (a special place of exaltation for the task master) and Venus, the natural ruler of Libra is in Capricorn. Think of it as ‘swapping places’. Suddenly these two planets symbolising parts of the Self have a new understanding of each other. They share a more respectful and companionable exchange. ie they ‘get’ each other.
Instead of vacillating goals or hesitant self worth there is balanced focus and more confidence; instead of rigorous tests of the heart and a tendency to isolate, there is sensual poise and social warmth. This is the perfect time to put effort into (Saturn) your art and craft (Venus) and to cooperate (Venus) in projects that aim to ‘get the job done’ (Saturn). Take advantage of this aura of non-judgement and camaraderie. Appreciate every step of the way!
