What's Up:  Venus is in Aquarius from Dec 8th to January 4th, 2017. The fresh air whirls around in love and friendship, with Venus in this air sign.  This follows Venus in Capricorn 

Social Buzz

Venus has been solely under the influence of Saturn, the planet of responsibility while in Capricorn.  Now the love planet has some breathing room in this air sign—what's favored is meeting others in a friendly, detached way.

Aquarius' other ruler Uranus is thrown into the mix for some real restlessness and maybe even relationship chaos. 

The Venus Aquarius natives are restless and ready to break with convention. The same tired way of engaging, stilted etiquette and the habits of being politically correct are blown apart. Aquarius is the sign of scrambling the same old thing with spontaneous behavior and actions.

What's on the social menu now goes beyond the usual labels, making unlikely connections. It's a time to make an unlikely friend, or enjoy the experience of the group— to be a part of something bigger than yourself.

Flirty Freedom

Venus in experimental Aquarius can inspire on-the-fly reaching out, to that object of your attention. 

There's a lightness with this love vibe, that makes it fun and without a lot of pressure. Aquarius says, "Let's see what happens."  This free-spirited way of showing affection creates a warm setting for friendship to develop organically.


Venus Aquarius draws you to those on your wavelength, but also to those that are wholly different.  There's a disruption of the usual social circle that makes it inclusive and that leads to unexpected connections. 

Beat of Own Drum

When Venus is in Aquarius, the individual is celebrated. And we move with a part of ourselves that's a little odd, maybe shocking, and definitely original.


Love and art get infused with our own kind of genius. Venus cheers us on to follow that passion or fascination, even if it's way outside 'normal' frames of society.  

This can be a time to venture into taboo areas, or to exhibit behavior that others feel is extreme. A touch of temporary insanity is in the air, with the currents of Uranus (Aquarius' ruler) are running the love currents.  

There can be themes of rebellion percolating, in conversation, social media and individual creative projects.  Feeling good (Venus) comes from being open to new ways of seeing and being. It's possible to experience waves  that come out of the blue, and sometimes it's ideas that are at that leading edge of what's known.

Shock of the New

Sometimes there are shocks and sudden breaks in love or a friendship. There could be a polar vortex in a particular relationship, that's as unpredictable as the weather of our times.

The urge to be free and follow a new track can lead to the desire for a space cushion in love. Someone who is usually warm could be aloof and distracted. 

There could be unusual currents coming in that take time to translate. Keep in mind that Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, and Aquarius' raison d'etre is to download fast currents and integrate them into our heavy slow material 3D world.


So give yourself and others the space to process and the permission to undergo a radical shift in perception. Sometimes that means taking time apart, to break patterns of relating that intrude on the thought stream. 

Currency of Ideas

Venus is a breath of fresh air in Aquarius, and the sign of the future.  When there's always a frontier to break through, there's no chance of stagnation for too long.  A boring exchange gets the Aqua treatment —something is said that gets folks tittering and wringing their hands.  

Venus Aquarius puts us all happily in that mode of exchanging our take on what's happening, and what's possible.  Since Aquarius is a sign oriented toward the bigger picture, there can be many sessions of soul-storming, theorizing, and collaborating. 

Venus in Aquarius Motif:

Cool glamour, trans-humanism and technology as fashionable trends, dating across racial, religious or class lines, shaking hands across the aisle, humanitarian values, the bizarre or outrageous, unconventional love arrangements, eccentricity and genius.
