Venus and Mars in Scorpio at the centre of the Cardinal Crunch is about feeling: Digging up the dirt caused by under the surface power battle’s by feeling where things in your life are deeply wrong. Venus in Scorpio will make you feel the imbalance on a deep level. Mars at his best, might give you the energy to prepare the battle you’ll have to fight to correct the wrongs so you can make it right again. Cleaning up the dirt: getting rid of parasites and bugs who are intoxicating your home environment (Cancer), and those of your loved ones. Initiated by the last New Moon in Virgo.
With Venus conjunct Mars before her retrograde motion it is time to take your feelings seriously, before they’ll become deadly serious on you. If you want to stay tall by pushing your feelings a side for a while: this is not the time to do so…
The last months have been erratic and confusing to all of us. We all know, by now, we can not continue the way we were. However, we also feel stuck in our lives, and don’t know where to start to create change in our personal lives: the Venus/Mars conjunction in Scorpio will be a great navigator to find out where it is we’ll have to take action (Mars).
Saturn in Libra makes us realise it’s time for creating new, better balanced foundations, into the relationships we have; as well as how we relate ourselves. No matter if these are personal relationships with spouses, your children, a stalker you don’t have a relationship with, but who is soaking you dry based on under the surface (Pluto/Scorpio), cruel intended, narcissistic fantasies (Neptune/Chiron), – as well as in professional ethical and/or political, diplomatic relationships we have.
Venus/Mars in Scorpio will make you realize where ever it is you have to stand up and fight for the real meaning of love, by making you feel it on a deep and profound level. Which might hurt, but in the end will protect you, as well as your loved ones, from the harm of power battle’s, and confusion concerning the definition of love, and the balance that should be there in so-called love relationships (Venus/Libra).
Where the sign of Libra rules over relationships: The other. The sign of Scorpio rules over emotional and other resources you share with the other : Intimacy. True intimacy is the result of the relationship with the other. If there is no true intimacy, and I am not talking just having sexual intercourse, here: there is no serious committed relationship either.If you don’t know the difference yet: Venus in Scorpio will let you know if you are just being controlled by your spouse, because you might have co-dependency issues, or if you are into a serious intimate relationship by making you feel the difference between being truly intimate with a person; while you are sharing each others emotional resources, or just being screwed by a person who calls him/her self your partner.
Libra is about balance, justice, diplomacy, relations and ethics in general. Saturn is about reality as it is: being real, solid ground, boundaries, working on and taking mature responsibility for your actions. For yourself as well as for those you committed yourself to. Correcting the imbalances in your life, by taking the responsibility to build new more balanced conditions, on solid ground.
Saturn also is seen as Lord of karma. If you have Saturn in transit on an important point in your natal chart, and didn’t take care of certain responsibilities in your previous Saturn cycle, he will rub it in your face and rip the ground under your feet all at the same time. If you did take care of your Saturn (worldly) responsibilities he will reward you by providing you with more solid ground under your feet, so you can make it into the future based on reality as it is.
The sign of Libra, the 7th house and Venus however, isn’t only about relationships. It is also about our social values, and lets face it: this is where we are today on a collective level:
I fully agree with this singer: We have this total superficial nonsense on one hand, and a bunch of New Age people who are ascending themselves, as well as the entire earth (how important can you be), on the other hand. There is a lot in between, I know. But right now I am focussing on the alignments of the stars also initiated by the last New Moon in Virgo,with Mercury Rx in opposition to Black Moon Lilith in Pisces; – and if the Neptune/Chiron conjunction didn’t make a ‘certain’ amount of people realise they are actually deeply wounded into their spiritual expectations: Saturn in Libra and the Venus/Mars conjunction in Scorpio, will. This is not about ascending ourselves and taking Mother Earth with us in the process. This is about maturing as human beings so, we can keep living on this earth while we are enjoying her resources without destroying her: It’s that simple and deeply spiritual.
It’s the simple difference between the 7th and th 8th house and/or the sign of Libra between the sign of Scorpio, if it comes to relating. Relating to your partner, your children, society, as well as how you relate to this Earth. It’s about the difference between thinking about it on a mental level, and consolidating it with a mutual agreement (Libra and the 7th house); feeling the depth of it on an emotional level, by feeling the other and taking care of the other’s emotional process, based on mutual exchange (Scorpio and the 8th house) and equality. Losing yourself by sharing and exchanging your emotional resources in a mutual process, while you’re truly consolidating your relationship with it, at the same time.
There is nothing ascending about surrendering yourself to the values of an other person. It actually is a very deep Plutonic process. It’s a Limbo dance, and these days you better have a bazooka on your shoulder if you’re entering the area. We are this much out of balance. We need this conjunction in Scorpio; as well as the retrograde motion to clear up some true, deep issues concerning our deeper values in relating in general. Take it from me: This Venus/Mars conjunction will be a great navigator if it comes to which way to go from here, by feeling it down to the bone…
