Written in the Planets

One of the trickiest obstacles for many people in connecting with others (and in trying to grow) can be self-criticism. Thoughts like, “I’m always too [X]” or, “I can never [Y] enough” get in the way of seeing that we possess the same basic qualities (and struggles) that others do. That makes it easier to locate certain emotions, attitudes and behaviors only in other people (a form of projection).

With Venus and Mars making their exact conjunction today in Virgo, it’s possible that some self-criticism could crop up in a new way — particularly regarding matters of love and sex, relationships in general, or ways of being active/assertive and passive/receptive. Another primary way this conjunction may emerge is in a new ability to see and analyze the ways your inner feminine and masculine (or yin and yang energies) could be better integrated.

If you tend not to be assertive or to take up space, can you identify small ways that you actually have been or could try to be? If you usually leave the emotional processing and following to a partner, are you at all curious about allowing yourself to be a little more open and vulnerable, or to let them lead a little? Venus and Mars making a trine aspect to Uranus in Taurus describes some additional support in trying something new in this way, or in discovering something unexpected about yourself — and with less inhibition than usual. Potentially you may then be able to integrate it in a very tangible way. We’re all whole already; the tough part sometimes is feeling that way. One step at a time.
