So at any rate, I would hope to see some hope to see some of you there. Now in the meantime, today let's take a look at Venus's upcoming conjunction with Uranus.
Remember that this lunar cycle is brought to you courtesy of a Venus Pluto square the opening of a lunar cycle whatever is happening at the opening tends to tone the cycle. So here's Venus squaring Pluto. So you have the goddess that represents our social civic fabric, whether it's intimacy, love, sex, friendship, or if it's the broader sense of your social life with friends, or even larger communities of people, if you're talking about the peaceful vibe of a park, on a Saturday afternoon, or the peaceful if you're at Whole Foods, the peaceful environment of a grocery store, just that feeling that you're out in public and that things are courteous and nice and peaceful. Not that that exists all the time. But when you have disruptions to Venus or challenges to Venus, you can see challenges to the social and civic fabric of our lives from the societal level to the personal level. That is a big part of what I talked about at the opening of this lunar cycle if you go back and listen to my new moon in Aries talk. Now, if we take this forward up to the present moment, this is not just one moment for Venus that started at the New Moon and we don't we don't hear from her again. No. Instead what we see is Venus is about to get into a conjunction with the planet Uranus, that is going to happen by the end of this week. So you can see on April 22 on Thursday, there's Venus at about nine degrees starting to get into the conjunction with Uranus passes over it by Friday the 23rd separates and then squares Saturn here you can see Venus starting to square Saturn by Saturday the 24th and then by the 25th. So you could even take this all the way through Monday. Now what this is doing and Mercury is going to get on get in on this too. What this is doing is effectively triggering June's second the second expression of Saturn square Uranus which is happening this June. So what does that mean both personally and in the collective? Well keep it pretty short.
Think about some of the things that are going on in the least the collective here in the United States and please people abroad maybe tell me how it fits where you live. Because you guys know I'm not a big news watcher anymore in my life at this point. I I feel like I pick up whatever I can't miss because of it being on on social media somewhere or whatever, but I'm not a big news watcher. And one thing that is happening this week though, is that the trial of the police officer involved with the death of George Floyd from a year ago is that the jury is reaching their decision this week. Given that Venus is about to conjoin, Uranus and square Saturn, it would not surprise me at all if the result was not taken well, or if people feel like it falls short of what they feel justice is or demands, as a result would not be surprising to see social and civic unrest, upheaval, protest the revolutionary spirit of Venus, Uranus, the call for reform of policing or criminal justice, as well as in some cases, active conflict between perhaps protesters and police potential damage to public things that would be all Venus Uranus with the square to Saturn in the mix. The nice part about this is that Mercury coming into the conjunction with Venus in the mix, could certainly lend a more diplomatic quality, and hopefully, there would be more peacefulness you've got a pretty strong Venus right now and Venus does like peace, peaceful ways of dealing with things, but Uranus and Saturn will make that a lot more tense. But then again, on the other hand, we have Mercury coming through. Mercury, Venus conjunctions tend to result in pleasing negotiations, pleasing speech compromise agreement. So hopefully there is, you know, hopefully, sort of the energies of this week will express themselves more constructively than destructively.
But let me just flip that now and talk about personal lives, your romantic relationship could get kinkier, more experimental, the need for originality change, progress revolution, innovation within sexual romantic relationships within marriages could present itself. On the other hand, the exact same Venus Uranus dynamic can signal major disruptions and upheavals and challenges and hardships around love and relationships. Venus, to Uranus and Saturn has to do with sometimes the push pull between the need for freedom, originality and independence versus commitment, discipline, and perseverance in love or in relationships. The need to reform or change relationships, the pressure of conformity versus originality when it comes to your body sexuality or appearance. So Venus is going through the wringer this week, and that's something that we're going to be tracking, I might even do another video about it by the time the week is over.
You may experience this in a more potent way today, because the Moon in Cancer will also be opposing Pluto and Capricorn between now and the end of the day. So just keep in mind that there's a pretty intense lunar dynamic unfolding as the first quarter Moon is also perfecting. So Sun is also about to change signs into Taurus where the exalted solar Mars energy will start to die down a bit. Mars is about to change signs into Cancer. So we are going to see some of the potent Mars energy start to die down significantly and even get somewhat compromised by Mars in Cancer. Anyway, so this is um, this is your heads up that Venus is getting into it with your honest this week, and whether that makes you feel like you want to, you know, shave your head or put a new tattoo on your face. In my house, the tattoo consists of my daughter's grabbing, washable magic markers, and I have a few tattoos. And so they like to say Daddy, Daddy, can I give you a tattoo? And I'm always like, but I've already got so many and I'm like I don't want magic marker all over me. So and then you know, they insist and then I get this like magical creation all over my arm. And so this week, the thought that I had was try to use washable magic marker if you're going to put tattoos on the situation. If you feel the need to mark yourself somehow or if the if there is occasion for some kind of creative expression, just make sure it's washable. Alright, that's, that's my random advice for the day. I hope you guys are having a great Monday. I look forward to discussing things as they unfold this week. Take care of each other and we'll see you again soon.
