Sun Square or Opposite Venus
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Sun square or opposite your natal Venus. This is a period when the focus in your life is on your relationships to your loved ones. You will become aware of how these relationships are working and whether they are mutual or one sided arrangements. Any relationship that becomes difficult now is in need of revision as you need to reassess what it is that you wish to gain from the relationship and what you are going to do for the other person(s) in return. Sometimes problems in your relationships may lead to increased spending by you to try to make things better. On the other hand, you may spend more due to obligations that you have to your loved ones or you may simply feel self indulgent. Be careful in your spending now as you will tend to exceed your budget. Avoid becoming vain or lazy.
If Venus is lord of your first house, others may think you are too preoccupied with yourself or too vain. This combination works best when you try to divert attention away from yourself, but be careful about others trying to give you too much attention.
If lord of the 2nd, your attention is on financial matters. Some people tend to spend more than they can afford during this time. Be careful about how you invest your money as it may prove more difficult to get the returns that you seek.
If lord of the 3rd, relatives and neighbors may figure more prominently in your life at this time. Differences of opinion may be hard to bridge at this time. Cultural differences may cause awkwardness in social situations.
If lord of the 4th, you may be inclined to be lazy and stay at home; not going out much. Family or relatives may question your tastes, likes and dislikes. Uncomfortable dependencies and violations of personal boundaries may take place now.
If lord of the 5th, this is an indication of over-spending. This can be a fun time, with social events favored if you know when to call it quits. Romance may not live up to your expectations.
If lord of the 6th, co-workers may intrude upon your personal space or place you in an uncomfortable position with your superiors if you are too afraid to disturb the peace. Practice office diplomacy. Overindulgence may lead to health concerns now.
If lord of the 7th, this combination indicates that the balance of power has shifted in your relationships and that you may need to more forcefully pursue a compromise. Others may seek to take advantage of your hospitality.
If lord of the 8th, be careful of a tendency to spend too much. You may be inclined to be lazy and take it easy, lacking in ambition.
If lord of the 9th, a focus on religious or philosophical issues is indicated. Cultural differences may lead to socially awkward situations. Consciousness of foreign customs and taboos is increased.
If lord of the 10th, try to keep the attention off yourself as much as possible now. Modesty will go along way towards avoiding awkward social situations. Your superiors may be more demanding now.
If lord of the 11th, social events that you attend may create tensions in your career that you had not planned on. Avoid gossip and the spreading of rumours. It would be wise to keep confidences and not believe everything that you hear now.
If lord of the 12th, you will probably procrastinate and not get very much done now. You may feel a bit lonely and isolated at this time.
