In astrology, Venus rules Libra and Taurus. She is associated with love, beauty, art and pleasure. Her Libra side is associated with forming relationships while the Taurus side takes a deeper look within ourselves, resources, and sense of self worth. When Venus is transiting, she helps give us information about our relationships, finances, and overall attitude towards life.
This means that when Venus is in her own sign of Scorpio, which begins on September 23; she loves deeper and takes more chances. She also has a healthy respect for unconventional love, so breakups are unlikely. During this time, you will develop a strong desire for closeness and intimacy. Things may get weird, though; showing you that it might be time to spice things up within your relationship.
While Venus is in Scorpio, make sure to check out what’s up with your loved ones. Your family and friends may come first before you do during these times, even if it seems like you’re neglecting yourself by sacrificing your time to help them out. When Venus opposes or squares Uranus, things are much easier to communicate because Venus loves getting deep about every little thing. Take advantage of her presence to talk through your problems or feelings so that you can move forward with confidence.
Take Charge and Control Over What You Want!
On September 17, The Venus-Uranus opposition will start. This will emphasize your ability to separate yourself from others and make independent decisions based on your own motivations. It’s time to say no—often. In order for success to be yours, you need take control over what you want and don’t want in your life.
This also signifies breaking free from limiting beliefs that hold you back; if something isn’t working out, then either change it or walk away completely. It’s also a great time to consider alternative, non-traditional relationships and break out of our normal patterns.
So if you’re in a long-term relationship, you may want to try something new. While Venus/Uranus is pushing us to do something shocking, it also encourages us to bring beauty into our lives through different means. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing; as long as it adds some kind of beauty into your life and helps break free from negative relationships that were holding you back, then that’s enough reason to get started with your ideas!
How the two align
Some astrologers believe that these kinds of hard aspects between planet pairs can create friction between them, causing tension within romantic relationships or close friendships. This alignment will test our relationships, especially with those closest to us.
With Venus in Scorpio—the Sign of passion—in opposition to Uranus—the planet associated with freedom and breaking rules—in Taurus—the sign of stability and security—our intimate partners are likely affected by it. We’re feeling less dependent on one another now, making it harder for Venus-Uranus couples to have an open dialogue.
With Venus in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus, we may be having a hard time integrating our own individual identities into our relationships or friendships. This can make us resentful toward our loved ones because we’ve been faced with separation from them due to their refusal to understand who we truly are. They might also push us away by not respecting our boundaries and pushing for change in ways that threaten our individuality—like asking us to make changes for their sake rather than ours—which makes Venus-Uranus individuals feel restricted or even suffocated.
On top of these issues, Venus-Uranus couples are also likely experiencing major differences in opinions about how they should conduct themselves as a couple, which results in conflict between them. They want to spend more time together, but that might not be what’s best for their personal growth. They want to spend less time together, but it makes them feel insecure when they’re apart; thus creating tension when spending alone time with friends or family members.
How you will be affected
The Venus-Uranus opposition is creating friction. That means Aries, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius all have cause for concern as they feel each other’s pain. But those with planets from about 21° to 30° of either sign have it really rough right now as those folks are being squeezed from both sides by Venus and Uranus.
Other signs will feel uncomfortable during October but not so painful—you might just get a bit irritated every once in awhile and can breathe easy through early November—after that time period though expect some rocky times until mid January.
