Venus and Mars formed a conjunction earlier this month that will be maintained through the end of March. This is unusual and will be interesting to observe.
Venus takes about a year to transit through the signs. Mars takes two years.
Under normal conditions, Venus hooks up with Mars to form a conjunction approximately once a year. The contact lasts ten days or so and that’s it. The 2022 situation is exciting!
The Venus Mars conjunction will kick off on February 1st with Venus at 11 degrees, Mars at 5 degrees Capricorn. The two planets will flirt around for a couple weeks, eventually forming an exact conjunction on the 16th, at 16 degrees.
Note that Valentine’s Day falls during this period. Gets the blood pumping!
Looking ahead to the end of February, Venus and Mars are still tightly conjunct at 24 and 25 degrees Capricorn. The planets are in close company throughout the month but the big event will take place on March 3rd…
March 3rd, Venus, Mars and Pluto will form a triple conjunction at 27 degrees Capricorn. The is remarkable but made even more so by situation the other planets find themselves in.
Specifically, Mercury and Saturn are conjunct at 19 degrees Aquarius. But there will also be a stellium in Pisces that includes the sun, moon and Jupiter and Neptune.
Words don’t do this justice. Click here to see the March 3rd chart.
The next event takes just after midnight, morning of March 6th when Venus and Mars ingress into Aquarius within a seven minute time span. How’s that for futuristic?
Post this fluke, the planets with maintain their conjunction for the rest of the month. March 31st, Venus is at 24 Aquarius with Mars at 18. Venus will ingress into Pisces during the first week of April, marking the end of this special time.
To zero in on how this conjunction will affect you, check the houses in your chart that will be transited by Venus and Mars, as well as the planets they’ll aspect. Remember this is a process. I would expect a specific event. It’s more like a series of events of various magnitude, taking place as Mars drives Venus for good or ill.
Also note the conjunction is significant during this entre period. But it will peak at the degrees between 14 Capricorn and 3 Aquarius.
While everyone will be affected, pay special attention if you have planets that will be aspected at these degrees. I fit the category so I’ll be on this for sure.
Are you looking forward to the long-form, 2022 Venus Mars conjunction?
