Venus enters Aquarius tonight at 8:17pm PST, joining Mercury and the Sun. We will have just over 49 hours with all three planets cavorting in the sign of the Water-Bearer/Energy-Bearer, as the Sun will enter Pisces around 9:30pm this Thursday evening.
Venus in Aquarius is bringing me a sense of laughter. And bubbles like playful sea waves. She is revolutionary, she is quirky, she is unapologetically herself. Aquarius pioneers freedom. What is it inside of us that is waiting to be set free? There is that magic in all of us, that liberating force, that will shake down all the obstacles, real or imagined. A freedom that one might imagine in death can, indeed, be felt and even lived.
As we are slowly turning into the Age of Aquarius from the Piscean Age, it is fitting that many humans are rapidly “waking up” and many “awakened” humans are coming into the world. It makes sense that the kundalini energy lying dormant at the base of the spine of every human is finding more and more opportunity for rising like the sacred snake.
Somewhere I have a card with a picture of Kwan Yin, Goddess of Compassion, robed in white and standing on the back of a giant green serpent. I think about that image often in yoga class, especially during final breathing. Awakening Kwan-Yin in my heart chakra, feeling her power riding upon the serpent of kundalini energy.
Aquarius feels like kundalini to me….
Traditionally, Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, fixed, firm and structured. The Energy-Bearer needs structure and guidance, like the kundalini.
The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, the rock and roll wild child of our solar system. Uranus is looking for nothing short of transcendence. That is exactly what an awakened kundalini will bring.
Venus represents love, art, wisdom and the divine feminine. She exists in all of us and is a supportive energy at all times. In Aquarius, she will be transiting my 9th House of travel and philosophy. Where does she affect YOU?
