Late tonight, early tomorrow in some time zones, Venus moves from Libra to Scorpio. Venus in her own sign of Libra has been squaring Pallas over the last few days. That square is waning but is still in effect as Venus hits Scorpio. The widening square has the effect of bringing up patterns in what one seeks in a partner. The shift into Scorpio brings with it a shift to an emphasis on patterns in one’s shadow in regard to attraction. That’s a natural progression, just as one sign builds upon the last.
Venus is moving into a trine with Chiron in Pisces. The Pallas connection that brings up patterns is connected to the Venus Chiron aspect, drawing in that energy of primal wounding. It’s a good time to address what areas of your relationship patterns in attraction relate to experiences in your early life. As Venus shifts from pleasant Libra to intense Scorpio, and with Chiron in Pisces conjunct Neptune, these experiences may not spring immediately to your conscious mind. They may, however, start making their way to the surface through your dreams or a yearning you can’t quite pin down. The energy is present to resolve or at least reach awareness of the subconscious ways in which your attraction operates. These inklings may have a quality of the taboo about them which the conscious mind tends to squelch. To make best use of this energy, use conscious effort to explore these emerging realizations without pushing them back down. Allowing them to surface can be the first step in integrating them into a solution or putting them to rest through acknowledging their validity.
