On March 6, 2022, Venus and Mars will leave Capricorn to simultaneously enter Aquarius. This means that we also have the a Venus-Mars conjunction at the 0° degree of Aquarius!
The 0° of any sign is a powerful degree. Conjunctions are a powerful way to start new cycles and make new beginnings. A conjunction at 0° is a very powerful new beginning.
The 0° degree of AquariusIs thesame degree we had the Jupiter/Saturn conjunctionWe will have another repetition in December 2020. The Universe is urging us to make some changes – to leave behind old operating models and to Take the Aquarian approach.
If Jupiter and Saturn spoke of collective developments that had an impact on us on a global level, then the Venus-Mars combination in Aquarius is about How we, as individuals can shape the collective.
What does Aquarius mean? Aquarius is often associated with rebellion, freedom, and uniqueness.
But that’s only one side of Aquarius. Let’s not forget that Aquarius is ruled both by Saturn and Uranus. Aquarius is not rebellious for the sake of rebellion.
Venus Conjunct Mars In Aquarius – What Makes Us Human
Aquarius has discovered the hard way that one-way power can have its limits. Aquarius is still a Saturn Sign, but not the top down, daddy-issues Capricorn Saturn. Aquarius is a combination of Saturn and Uranian that aims to promote a democratic, inclusive approach.
It is important to clarify that neither Saturn energy nor Capricorn are bad, nor Aquarius or Uranus bad. However, we are witnessing the Last strike of Pluto in CapricornWe can see more of the sign’s shadow manifestations.
Pluto’s role is to destroy everything that can no longer sustain growth, and in Capricorn, that’s corruption, abuse of power, and the top-down “you do what I say” approach.
Saturn for Capricornis the general. I command you to do this. The Aquarius Saturn is the advisory board, the elected MP, the opposition party – those societal forces that work so that there is a democratic distribution of power, and that power is not concentrated in the hands of a few.
Aquarians do not seek revolution or strife. They seek inclusion and true democracy. Aquarius respects individual differences – and focuses onOur humanity is what we have in common.
Aquarius And Prometheus – The Light Of Knowledge
Aquarius is archetypally. Prometheus stole the fire from Gods to give it to the people.. The fire is a metaphor to the light of knowledge, awareness. Uranus, Aquarius’ co-ruler is the lightning that cracks the sky open, bringing insight and clarity where there was darkness.
Aquarius is a collective Air Sign and it governs the dissemination of information. Aquarius rules the printed press, as well as the internet and social media. Aquarius’ goal is to give everyone the means to become informed.
This is not to say that the media is not manipulating – of course, any institution is exposed to corruption. The Aquarian principle of creating infrastructure that allows everyone to access information, at least theoretically, is a noble pursuit.
From Martin Luther, who made the Bible accessible to everyone, to discussion forums where people around the world can share their opinion, through freedom of speech – these are all Aquarian themes.
Aquarius is the most attractive. Sign of solidarityIt is the rule Human rights. Human rights are rights we have because we exist as human beings – they are not granted by any state.
These universal rights are InherentTo all people, regardless of nationality, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, color, religion, or other status. They range from the most fundamental – the right to life – to those that make life worth living, such as the rights to food, education, work, health, and liberty.
Aquarius’ Venus-Mars conjunction asks us to examine what makes us human. Are some people more ‘human’ than others?
Venus Conjunct Mars In Aquarius – We’re All In This Together
Aquarius, on the other hand, is a collective, inclusive energy. Leo and Aries are individualistic energies that ask us focus on what makes us unique. Aquarius, on the other hand, is a collective, inclusive energy asking us to focus our attention on what we have in common.
Aquarius’s keyword is inclusion. How do we create a society that includes everyone and gives everyone a voice?
Venus and Mars in Aquarius’s goal is to help us see that we’re all in this together.
Aquarius invites us to stop the divisiveness, to see where we’re influenced and affected by top-down agendas. Politicians have nothing to lose. It’s the regular person who gets affected by the decisions of the few.
When we operate from a “me against them”, “good guys vs. bad guys” paradigm, we operate from a win-lose scenario which can easily flip into a lose-lose; NEVER in a win-win. If one of us loses, we all lose.
When we are focused on our humanityWe automatically make decisions that support our greatest collective good.
The Venus-Mars conjunction in Aquarius’s first degree reminds us that we, the people, have the power to make the world better.
Recognizing Aquarian energy can be costly. Freedom comes with responsibilities. We are responsible to what happens in our lives.
There’s no more parent figure to act on our behalf (and to blame later), no more good and bad, no more division. Our reality is ours. This is scary. It is also very liberating.
Venus And Mars In Aquarius – The Path To Freedom
Returning to the Promethean myth.
Prometheus (Uranus), a god, was punished for stealing the fire and giving it away to humans. Zeus tied Prometheus to the rock, where an eagle slowly ate Prometheus’ liver. Prometheus was immortal, he couldn’t die, so the ordeal would repeat every day, to eternity.
His Chiron saved the day. To save Prometheus, Chiron gave up his immortality.
What’s interesting is that Chiron orbits between Saturn (the Capricorn principle) and Uranus (the Aquarius principle). Chiron is the bridge between the two, is what it takes to evolve from Saturn’s material limitations to Uranus’ freedom and liberation.
The myth is a metaphor that shows the work we must do as individuals to transcend the pain and find true freedom. Chiron was half-man and half-horse. This is a metaphor for our dual nature. We are 50% matter and 50% spirit.
When we don’t integrate our animal and our godly side, this is when we polarize the good and the bad and end up with the ‘good guys’ vs. the ‘bad guys’, right vs. wrong.
But This duality can be incorporated, when we recognize that all these qualities can all be found within ourselves – both positive and negative – we are no longer triggered by division, andWitness humanity: in us and in others.
