Temple Astrolog: Beautiful Magick

Saturn, the planet of limitation, time, and structure has just left his own sign Capricorn and entered into the sign of Aquarius. Even if we all are, more or less limited at the moment because of the situation with the coronavirus, Saturn moving into Aquarius can bring a breath of fresh air and hope. Even if we still are restricted in the same way, chances are good that at least it will feel a tiny bit better with the movement of Saturn moving into an air sign.

Aquarius is a sign of community, networking, the internet, and bigger organizations, like the UN and the Red Cross. It is also connected to inventions and new solutions. Saturn as a manifestor par excellence can do a lot of good right now in the sign of Aquarius, helping us to cooperate and exchange ideas across borders and think in new ways, finding new pathways and connections.

Saturn is a good builder and in Aquarius he can also help the more shy witch, businessperson, teacher, or entrepreneur to go online and offer things there. If you have a need or plans of going more online with your business, I recommend that you do not wait, but get started right away as there are extra good winds and assistance for that now when Saturn (manifestation) and Mars (will) in Aquarius (internet) make a trine to both Venus and Vesta in Gemini (communication, writing)

Being close or being detached?

Venus (love, magick, values) has moved into the sign of Gemini (communication, siblings, friendship) and there she helps us to communicate more and better from the heart. During this transit, communication in our relationships will be extra important.

Just like Gemini is the sign of the twins, there are two sides of Venus in Gemini, being very close on one hand, and being detached on the other.

We can spend a lot of time with someone physically, talk a lot, but still not feel close to them. On the other hand we can have lot of physical distance between us and someone else, not being able to see each other as much as we would want to, but still feel a strong connection and love between us.

Perhaps this is more true now than ever, when we are more connected online building relationships there, and at the same time we are in danger of not connecting to the people who share our home.

Special check-in and closeness in the heart

With Venus in Gemini, communication in all of our relationships will be important, especially regarding romance. Take the time to check-in romantically with your partner every day, even if you have been in the same house or apartment the whole day. These “you and me” moments are extra important and will help both protect and nourish your relationship during intense times. To check-in with each other’s heart is not about distance, it’s about presence in the moment and being connected in the heart.

Another challenging side of Venus in Gemini is the tendency to get restless. This may not be so fun if you are locked in with a lot of restless kids in your home. See if you can find a creative outlet for all of that energy. Gemini can be quite playful and likes games, so perhaps it is time to pick up traditional card or board games again and gather the family to play them.

Love letters and creative writing

Venus the goddess of Love in Gemini is very creative with words and an excellent writer. That makes this good time to write love letters, leave romantic notes, and to court your lover. Who doesn’t enjoy finding a small love note in their pocket or on the bathroom mirror?

Venus is joined with the asteroid Vesta in Gemini and this emphasizes writing and creative energy even more. Vesta in this position is very good at handling bigger projects, so if you have plans for a bigger writing project like writing a book, this is a good time!

Finding moments of Joy

We still have the heavy transits going on with the outer planets, weighing on all of us. But I do believe that in difficult times the smaller moments of joy are more important than ever. A break, or a distraction from the heavy clouds. As witches, healers, and magickal people we can make beautiful things out of almost nothing. Right now that extra magickal tip on our wand is, or could be, Venus in Gemini, infusing the air with magickal mercurial energy, ready for magick and beauty in the blink of an eye. So what do you say? Are you ready to create some beautiful magick?

Venus will be in Gemini until around the 7th of August when she moves into the sign of Cancer.
