Venus Conjunct Sun
Venus is in the throne room with the king (Sol) today (June 3rd). She entered the room as an evening beauty in white silk and floral crown but will leave in a week’s time as a warrior queen in copper-hued armor.
In the heart of the Sun (cazimi) the planet of love is undergoing a fiery metamorphosis from Evening Star to Morning Star. When she emerges as Morning Star she will be more aligned with her Taurean qualities of earthy sensuality and stubborn determination. Venus as Morning Star is assertive and as Evening Star she is more balanced and loving.
You can check if you’re a Morning Star or Evening Star by looking at your birth chart. If Venus is before the Sun in your chart you are a Morning Star and if she follows the sun, you are an Evening Star.
This is a time of purification and we may be feeling the heat of clarity at this time.
What brilliant truths are being revealed at this time?
If you’ve been reflecting against the backdrop of current events you will have undoubtedly committed to being better and doing more.
Venus is retrograde in Gemini, the sign representative of duality but also synthesis. Audre Lorde said, “It’s not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
Venus is the archetype of love and beauty but also hope because her primary motivation is always harmony and unity. Use this time to work through aspects of your personality that are less desirable and that require healing. xo
