What Your Venus Sign Says About You


The helical rise of venus occurred on June 12, 2012.  This marks the exact date that venus transformed herself from an evening star into a morning star.   She reappeared from the shadows in new garb setting the feminine tone for the next year and a half. Judging from the Sabian Symbol, it appears to be one of “liberation from the past.”

Venus is setting out to recover something she lost thousands of years ago.  It has to do with the two things in life she needs most – authority and self-possession.  Venus needs to control her life and to possess her own her body.  She needs others to be kind. So far this year has not seemed to be a “be kind to women” year.

Women and children have suffered most as the economy continues to struggle, Sandra Fluke was called a slut for speaking out on a woman’s right to healthcare, there was an attempt to redefine rape as legitimate or not legitimate, mandatory ultrasounds, video viewing, and waiting periods for women seeking abortion were signed into law in some states.  Women continue to make seventy-seven cents for every dollar men make.

For the sake of the world women must refuse to be shamed or bullied into weakness.  With Gemini setting the tone, silence (a foreign concept to Gemini) must be left behind.  Through both personal and public realms, and forceful authentic expression of their Venus placement, everyone has a role to play in liberating the world from the past.    Read about your innate gifts and your relational style, and your unique role in advancing the world.
