Venus is truly a mistress of all trades; the planet of love doesn’t just preside over romance… she dabbles in physical aesthetic, how we give and receive affection, the hobbies we enjoy… Venus has a say in all of your tastes and pleasures, from seen to unseen senses. (Taste, smell, touch, etc.)
Venus averages a month in each sign, opting to remain close to the Sun.
Venus will be an Aries from May 2-28, 2022.
Aries is a cardinal fire sign. The initiator of the zodiac. In a spiritual sense, Aries represents the fearlessness to be exactly who we signed up to become in this lifetime. Aries teaches us to say what needs to be said, to do what needs to be done; often at the expense of seeming impatient, childish, or even selfish. (Those are what we call “low road“ qualities, which every sign has.)
We need the courage of Aries to jumpstart stagnancy, seek out excitement, and know when to charge ahead, even in the absence of logic or reason. (We’ll save that for the Virgos.)
When Venus passes through Aries, it shows us where in the chart you can be more forthright with love, but also what it is you love.
Aries rising, 1st house: Jumpstart your exercise routine! Venus in the first house is exemplary self-love. How you treat yourself trains and teaches other people how to treat you. Based on that reasoning, what example are you setting? It might be time to upgrade your self-worth and set some non-negotiables.
Taurus rising, 12th house: Do you and your partner share a spiritual connection? Tantric sex is especially alluring for a sensual Taurus rising. If you’re single, this is an opportunity to explore your relationship to the divine and self-pleasure.
Gemini rising, 11th house: Have you fully exhausted the love-life possibilities within your own extended circle? There’s a chance that love might be in the air, and even closer in proximity than you may think. If you have feelings for a friend, this might be a good month to express them!
Cancer rising, 10th house: What goals have been bubbling up to the surface that you would like to see materialize this month? You are divinely supported to kickstart a new project or shoot your shot in May, whether that be personal or professional.
Leo rising, 9th house: If you’re feeling the travel itch, book a staycation or weekend getaway! Bonus points if you can make it a group trip. Go on a guilt-free adventure this month and know that it is the perfect time for a romantic getaway.
Virgo rising, 8th house: It’s time to get specific about what brings you pleasure. Do you feel shy letting your partner know what you desire? Are you in denial about your own needs, even when you’re on your own? It’s time to be assertive about what brings you pleasure (whether it’s a party of one or more).
Libra rising, 7th house: This boost of fire can help kick indecisiveness in the butt, particularly if something has been weighing on you, or if you’ve been trying to make your mind up about a relationship. This is your sign to trust your instincts, and a cosmic warning that if you weigh your options for too long, they might not still be there once you finally decide.
Scorpio rising, 6th house: You might need to spice up your daily routines or be more intentional planning date nights, either with yourself or your beau! Where are you just going through the motions? Without even needing to spend more money or time, how could you spice up your norm?
Sagittarius rising, 5th house: You might feel more attracted to people that you have creative hobbies in common with. Go take a pottery class with your partner, or if you’re on the prowl, join a meet-up group, book club, or trivia night. Seek out people with common interests!
Capricorn rising, 4th house: If you’re in a relationship, is it time to move in together? How can you turn your home into a sanctuary? Initiate a gathering and cook dinner for your friends. Fall deeper in love with your home and the people you share it with.
Aquarius rising, 3rd house: Don’t just assume people know how you feel! Take that first step, send the text or get the conversation started. If anything is left up to interpretation, your intentions could be misconstrued. Say what needs to be said, even at the risk of sounding redundant!
Pisces rising, 2nd house: You might feel the urge to splurge and spend money this month, but first ask yourself if you’re over-compensating or avoiding for anything… is the rush of a new pair of shoes just a temporary high for something deeper and unaddressed? Consider investing that money instead and starting a portfolio.
