A Dance of Mars and Venus

Currently Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter are all retrograde. Mercury is retrograde in its sign of exaltation Gemini and it is joined in this sign by Venus, but this is Venus’s sign of debilitation. Mars is in Taurus controlled by Venus. Rahu is in Aries controlled by Mars and Ketu is in Libra controlled by Venus. This mean that Mars, Rahu, and Ketu are in signs directly or indirectly controlled by this debilitated Venus. This is a time when most things seem to be falling apart, both subjectively and objectively. This is most true in the area of relationships and desires, the realm of Venus. Relationships seem to be disintegrating because of factors external to relationships and desires and goals are frustrated by factors beyond your control. The key to getting through this is clear and kind communications, anger especially in speech is very dangerous at this time. It will also help to reflect on and plan actions for a time when these obstacles disappear and opportunities arise. This is not a time for bold action or taking big risks.

However, on October 1st Mercury will go direct making the path forward clearer. On October 23rdSaturn will go direct, which will remove some obstacles and situations causing frustration. At the same time Venus will enter its own sign of Libra. On November 23rd Jupiter will go direct, which will present some opportunities and hope for the future.

By the time Jupiter goes direct Mars will be retrograde in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury will be in Scorpio, which is ruled by Mars. Scorpio will also be aspected by Jupiter from Pisces. This means that Mars and Venus have exchanged signs. Scorpio is the 1st house of the chart of the USA and Taurus is its 7th house. Even Rahu and Ketu are involved in this as they are in signs ruled by Mars and Venus respectively. So, Jupiter and Saturn are in their own signs and all the other planets are in signs ruled by Mars and Venus, which are in an exchange of signs that unifies and intermixes their influence. This period will be one of intense change and opportunity, especially for the USA as a whole. This will be a time to reinvent yourself and take risks. It is a dance of Mars and Venus, a time when desire can turn into action that takes root. This is the period of time that you should be preparing and planning for now. It will last until the beginning of 2023.
