If you tend to be one of those people who don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because it’s commercialized, then you’d be right. It is! However, this year there is a rare alignment between Earth time and Cosmic time. On Feb. 15, romantic Venus in Pisces makes her annual fusion with ethereal Neptune, making this a sublime influence for all things joy, pleasure and love.
That said, you don’t have to be in a relationship to enjoy the moment. Time spent with friends or doing something you really enjoy will help you extract this sweet cosmic nectar. So why am I harping on about this this week? It’s because Venus and Neptune will contend with Saturn for the next few years, plus a few other cosmic complications which will sour the flavor.
Speaking of Saturn, the Sun plus the ringed planet will make their final conjunction in Aquarius for thirty years on Thursday. This clarifying and sobering energy will add a dose of reality to an otherwise surreal week. If so far in 2023, you’ve been dragging your heels a bit or lacking in focus, a Sun / Saturn combination will help you refine your direction and figure out your priorities.
