Venus in Scorpio is about mid-point between the Sun and Mercury, conjunct Mercury on October 26 and the Sun on October 29. After the intense emotionalism of the Full Moon in Aries, the encounter of Venus with both Mercury and the Sun should bring some calm to our lives in the next few days. Venus seeks conciliation and engenders attraction and loving feelings. These are great days to be creative, to visit art galleries, read what pleases us, use our imagination to write and communicate, interact with like minded people, talk lovingly to one another.
The conjunction Sun-Venus represents also a turning point in the Venus’s cycle, the end of the Evening Star phase and beginning of the Morning Star, as she will reappear in mid November in the pre-dawn skies. The coming phase will be more outgoing but also less self-reflective. For a more in depth interpretation of this Venus’ transition, please read my Venus’ long Transit through Scorpio’s post.
Another sign of change is Mars leaving Scorpio and transiting Sagittarius from October 28 to December 8. If you are a Sagittarius or this Fire Sign is highlighted in your Birth Chart this period could be one during which you could successfully defend or upheld your principles, what you believe in. Also time for resolute action, for courage and initiative; or, negatively, antagonism, nerves, restlessness and impulsiveness, when excessive optimism could become a problem.
The other Fire Signs too (Aries and Leo) may be fired up by this transit. They are the ones who could be well advised to use some discretion, in order not to appear self-righteous and arrogant, and thus attract opposition.
The other Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Pisces) will also receive a heavier dose of Mars’ energy during the same period, stimulating and exciting but calling for some restraint too.
