Venus Is In Rather Difficult Territory: Time To Rewrite The Rules?
Venus is on Libra 19 – a degree that can bring up issues of trust, fear, apprehension, etc. It can also bring things to light – things that have been kept suppressed and hidden from view… situations that need a light shone on them can benefit from revealing what the true facts or depths are. A healing can then take place. First, though, usually, with this degree, we encounter our thoughts as worries or cares that ‘rob’ us of our peace of mind…
Here’s my shortened interpretation for this degree
Libra 19: A GANG OF ROBBERS IN HIDING
This Symbol implies that you may feel you have been wronged or something has been taken from you. Often, there is no real way of finding who or what is the cause. It often happens that the feelings of loss or being taken advantage of are mostly in your own mind, making it difficult to trust or even to know how to trust. Make sure that there is no undermining of faith by indulging in suspicions that are ungrounded in reality. You could spend time searching for perpetrators, but a better solution is probably to get on with your life. However, do take precautions so you’re not easily taken advantage of. Things will most probably come to light when they are meant to.
Mental attitudes that sabotage, restrict or control. Counseling others to help improve their lives. Alert to intrusion or paranoid? The need for light. Spying. Ambushes. Psychology.
The Caution: Unfair advantage at other’s expense. Finding it hard to trust anything. Difficult hidden energies that erupt into consciousness. Unbalanced mental states. Fear.
This Symbol is compounded by the fact that the Karmic Condition (the degree before) of it is Libra 18: Two Men Placed Under Arrest Are Brought Before The Tribunal Of Society To Give An Accounting For Their Actions…. we might feel as though we are being judged, or, that we are judging others. Perhaps we, or someone else, may have crossed the bounds of morality, or done something rather ‘illegal’ – or ‘illegitimate’ in our estimation (or the estimation of society)…
My shortened version of this degree:
This Symbol implies the periodic need for people to step up to the line and explain themselves, or to justify some actions or ways of being, particularly in relationships. Sometimes our ideas or actions are under criticism, to the point of feeling that someone has offended social acceptability. Be thoughtful about situations, because problems you face may only exist in your own mind, stopping you from having fruitful relationships because of a lack of trust or a failed relationship in your past. You may need to forgive or feel forgiven. Relationships can be held in abeyance until the facts come to light. Things resolve themselves as time goes by.
Unacceptable principles. People kept apart because of circumstances. Relationships like jail sentences. Staying too long. The law. Karma to be worked out. Judge and juries.
The Caution: Refusing to conform to society. Sabotaging relationship values. Feeling stuck, unable to move. Telling tales. Handcuffs and manacles. Severe judgments.
Venus going over these two degrees is never easy – and it is even harder this time around the zodiac wheel as Uranus is opposing Venus (and, just days ago, we had the Pluto/Venus square). Relationships can be under the microscope big time with this energy around. The biggest relationship, of course, is the one we have with ourselves.
What fears/worries/illusions/etc can we let go of now – right before the full Moon?
