North Node in Gemini today meeting Venus comes up with gems creating opportunities and potential for success in Venus pursuits โ€” music, creativity, arts, pleasure, love, finances. This is a very progressive aspect promoting choices which are more untraditional and progressive in love, fashion, creativity, finances and diplomacy. This is a great aspect for business diplomacy and partnerships of all shapes and form as well as for self expression. Pluto and Sun make a trine giving us willpower to forge forward despite the blues and hesitations or blockages that the Mars Saturn quincunx are bringing to us. But there is more to all this so as usual we would go deeper in Sun Pluto style today.


Listen to the podcast #Workingonit Astrology!

Venus the planet that rules our choices, finances, creativity, love and heart is in Gemini till 2nd June. Venus in Gemini loves her variety, her choices, her ability to change her heart. She is social and attracts with words, gets seduced by the brain versus brawn. She is witty and has innate love of knowledge, words and communication. Gifts of words she is called. She has no problem in chit chat or making conversation on any topic. Her love, beauty and benefits are manifested on the mental plane. Passions are intellectually understood and easily expressed like by William Shakespeare. A lot depends on how this transit is personally assimilated in ones chart but atleast by transit we get a piece of Shakespeare in our every day life without his Neptunian surrealism.

Through our mind and words, we all have the opportunity right now to bring more love and beauty to the world. Venus is with watcher of the east โ€” Aldebaran star which rules hands and fingers & brings about creative works of prominence. This is the other side of Antares, the Sagittarius religious war. Activation of Antares and Aldebaran that we are observing this month do presage war and as I mentioned in my May forecast โ€” it comes with a moral choice where we need to rise above. It will further get energised with the 31 May contact. With Venus meeting the opposite side of war, we have opportunity to meet war with love and with diplomacy. In the same vein we all have opportunity to mend relationships & conflicts through words too. Words are of huge impact as is the mindset right now.

Venus contact with the karmic point North node right now also brings to prominence a karmic bond โ€” a significant relationship or connection that is new or old one becomes deeper. These bonds can be with an entity or a person. Sometimes the life path we are on is greatly influenced & shifte by our personal life and heart choices during this time. This transit can also have impact on our financial situation โ€” we either might be making an investment into our forward path or getting ideas on how to monetise our forward life path. This is forward movement.

North Node boosts Venus โ€” our sense of worth and it wants us to choose differently โ€” more progressively and it may not come easily right now but thats what is required. Choices in love, in finances, in creativity are greatly shifted as you expect more from yourself, others in your life, your career and in general raise your mindset and standards in your own mind. This is elevation of our heart choices and ambition should be allowed to soar โ€” from this position we should be drafting the forward vision of our life.

Venus is now an evening star all of this year โ€” Venus Hesperus our heart and choices is rising behind Sun our ego and identity, hanging out in the evening sky- it dawns the feminine and seeming more โ€œmaturedโ€ garb. We can see in our own natal chart how is Venus placed versus Sun, if its ahead of Sun in zodiacal degrees you know you have this evening star Venus. Feeling after the action โ€” it brings forth emotions that is a judgment of an action that has already been performed. Unlike morning star Lucifer Venus who acts as he feels he must act. Normally Venus reaches this evening star โ€œmaturityโ€ after a crisis โ€” physical or psychological reaching this more mellow, matured and wisdom phase. United Kingdom has evening star Venus โ€” you can see that in the creative expression and contrast it with United States whose Venus is Lucifer โ€” morning star. Evening star Venus comes with a baggage of traditions. It in no way means an evening star Venus cannot emotionally over react . It just means that evening star Venus emotions are an after effect of an action, a forced reaction while morning star Venus emotions cause the actions.

So emotional reactions which are forced out of evening star Venus are possible too but they are more subdued and more โ€œEnglishโ€ in expression.

The judgement after action is indeed the case with Venus and other personal planets charting the course Mars our actions have already charted end March. A delayed emotional reaction and acceptance of what has already happened. Normally an evening star Venus is more traditional so you would find it critically judging its own โ€œfrivolous pursuitsโ€ against the evening star Venus traditional and cultural or spiritual values.

Know that this choice is a tough one. But the only way ahead is forward.

There is an introspective color to the time right now as the forward movement is based on a choice we have made in the past โ€” around end of March. We made a choice or we took a karmic step or a karmic event happened to us which moved us away from the past. Now we are moving to the exploration of the โ€œnewly opened landsโ€ โ€” the unexplored unexperienced field of potential. We are facing the unfamiliar. Anything could happen. But we keep our heart open and flexible to the new experiences โ€” material, emotional, mental. The virgin field of consciousness and activity that this degree represents. Venus North node help us face the future by opening our mind to positive new information, forward looking, separating us from the past.

Mercury in its strength in Gemini also achieves its longest elongation โ€” its farthest from Sun and its the point of gaining perspective due to distance. We gain a unique perspective on past events especially events since February which would help us in the move forward. We spoke of it in Mercury in Gemini post/podcast/video.

Delayed evaluation of end March actions against a traditional value system along with gaining perspective with distance is a key theme playing out right now.

But North Node lures with the future, its seduction is the growth thats unknown versus past thats stagnant. It drops signs and hints right when you are slipping back, showing you that you are on the right path forward. It also brings some needed objectivity to the situation. Pluto is right now retrograde โ€” our transformation from now on is more internal versus external but supporting Sun our ego and identity โ€” that process of inner transformation and strength you are undergoing somehow doesnโ€™t let you go back as well.

We have a lot of power over our own life and choices, fate interjects but mostly to awaken us to this realisation. Evolution means move forward which North Node Venus guide us through but it also means elimination. An elimination which is based on introspection. Sun Pluto transit right now might suggest its beneficial for us to evolve forward by eliminating some clutter of the past too. May be todayโ€™s introspection brings that up too.

Power through!
