First, things first, just this weekend, Mercury has stationed retrograde, beginning it's review of the Aquarian degrees it has passed over since January 16th. It will station direct on February 20th.
And, that's right, if Mercury retrograde will be making a conjunction with Venus for Valentine's Day, that means Venus must be moving into Aquarius. This week kicks off with Venus leaving Capricorn and entering Aquarius to join the sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter, on Monday, February 1st, and with the moon in Libra, Venus' sign, that will be giving Monday and Tuesday really strong Venus vibes! (Details in the daily notes of the Know to Flow weekly forecast - to subscribe click here.)
Venus is one of the two benefics (planets that bring blessings), along with Jupiter. Wherever Venus goes, pleasure and beauty follow. (That means whatever house Aquarius rules in your chart is where Venus is going to be bringing her gifts until February 25th when she enters Pisces.) Venus in astrology represents love and money. This is the planet of relationship, values, and self-worth. When Venus is in Aquarius, that means it will be expressing through the energy of that sign. Aquarius is an air sign, and known for logic, detachment, and it's aversion to the status-quo. This means we might favor the unusual, eccentric, and weird now over romantic. Intellectual connections will be the thing now in all of our relationships. Ideas and innovation rule, and we might need more freedom, spontaneity, and fresh air in all things love and money oriented.
The other thing this week is on Thursday the 4th, when we arrive at the last quarter moon, our halfway point between the full moon and coming new moon, and the second choice point of the lunar cycle known as a "crisis in consciousness." This is when we decide what ideas and beliefs we won't be carrying forward based on whatever illumination and realization the full moon a week ago has brought.
We will spend the next week releasing and clearing based on this decision as we prepare for the coming new moon. (And that coming new moon IS the Aquarius new moon, and with this year being a year strong in Aquarius energy, that's a very important one for this year, so the clearing process over this week and next is key.)
