Chapter 118: the ‘7-6 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Virgo

Christ was ‘allowed’ to jump (from Leo) through Sagittarius and avoid a new incarnation because h/He was, after all, God. We humans, however, need to obtain a full experience of Virgo, Libra and Scorpio to avoid unecessary suffering in the next life i.e. we need to obtain a four-cornered understanding of “centroversion”. In 2017 Venus will conjunct Mars in Virgo… this happens, on average, every 12 years.

Chapter 117: the ‘7-5 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Leo Sep/17

Fiery Leo might not be particularly ‘rational’ but, as noted in our prior intro, Leo is still able to bring out the ‘rational’ Libran side of Venus. In a simliar way that Aphrodite in Aquarius can balance an unbalanced situation (e.g. ‘fathered’ from the loins of ’11’, placenta-ed by ’12’ and, then, born into ‘1’), to what extent might Venus in Leo balance an unbalanced (i.e. too rapid) ‘transcendence’ past ‘6’ & ‘7’?

Chapter 116: the ‘7-4 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Cancer Aug/17

Venus ruling two signs has its challenges (e.g. is it more at home in Taurus or Libra?) but it has the upside of diluting elemental opposition (e.g. the earth-Taurean Venus is ‘auxiliatory’ in watery Cancer; the air-Libran Venus is ‘auxiliatory’ in fiery Leo). Although Venus’ exogamous impulse can be diluted by Cancer, creative incest is the best remedy for uncreative “identities/identifications” in the 4th quadrant.

Chapter 117: the ‘7-5 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Leo Sep/17
Fiery Leo might not be particularly ‘rational’ but, as noted in our prior intro, Leo is still able to bring out the ‘rational’ Libran side of Venus.

Chapter 119: the ‘7-7 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Libra
Longstanding readers are aware of our preference for the (apocryphal?) idea that Libra is a recent inclusion of the zodiac because it symbolizes the chancy nature of (geniune) patriarchy. Although Venus in Libra points to a facility for establishing a patriarchy, we may need to discover a new planet (“Athene”?) before we can fully separate the men from (what Erich Neumann calls) the “narcissistic flower boys”.

Chapter 120: the ‘7-8 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Scorpio
Because Venus is either (i) ‘home’ or (ii) ‘heading home’ when it is in Taurus, Libra or the signs prior to Taurus or Libra, there is something of being past the ‘use by’ date (or, if you are a sci-fi fanatic, the “Limbo” underground rail station in “The Matrix”) when Venus is in Scorpio. Trying to strike a balance between death and re-birth sounds a bit silly to me. “Temperance” comes before “The Devil” for a reason.

 

Chapter 115: the ‘7-3 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Gemini Jul/17

If the analysand leaves his/her therapy because of “negative transferences” to his/her analyst (e.g. the analyst is deemed too superego-ic), the unconscious “positive transference” has been insufficiently analyzed. If s/he leaves his/her therapy because of “positive transferences” to his/her analyst (e.g. she heals quickly), the unconscious “negative transference” has been insufficiently analyzed. Just ask Venus in Gemini.

Chapter 114: the ‘7-2 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Taurus Jun/17

Because the Sun & the Moon (i) rule only one sign & (ii) are perpetually anti-clockwising, they are easy to ‘get’ in the wake of an example e.g. Easter Sunday’s full Moon. Because Venus (i) rules two signs (ii) has a retrograde phase each year & (iii) ‘punishes’ Psyche in subtler ways than God ‘punishes’ Christ, interpreting Venus in a horoscope can be subtle too. Is Venus ‘better off’ in Taurus or in Libra?

Chapter 113: the ‘7-1 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Aries May/17

That Abraham sacrificed a Ram (instead of Isaac) during the “Age of Aries” points to the ‘logic’ of monotheism beginning in ‘1”s “Age”. Some argue that Christ was the only Jewish prophet w/Who ‘got’ the Sun but it may have been the case that Solar meaning was not a big issue until the spring equinox slipped back into winter; to what extent might Venus in Aries promote creation-vs.-destruction “balances”?

Chapter 112: the ‘7-12 interaction’ e.g. Venus in Pisces Apr/17

If you are a scientist, you will say that neoteny (i.e. Homo sapiens is a womby-unborn, hairless chimp) is the problem; if you are an archetypalist, you will say that “identification with (instead of relationship to)” the realm of Ideas is the problem; if you are a Freudastrologer, you will say that “regression” into the 4th quadrant is the Devil; to what extent might Venus in Pisces assist “progression” from ’11’ to ‘1’?

Chapter 111: the ‘7-11 Interaction’ e.g. Venus in Aquarius Mar/17

For Freudastrologers, the narcissistic-masochistic signs, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, have two ‘wings’: to one side, old-head-on-old-shoulders senior citizenry; to the other side, delusional inert-fractured-passive-foetal “identity”. With the “Age of Pisces” now “regressing” to the “Age of Aquarius”, gestationals are drowning out old heads; to what extent can Venus in Aquarius balance an unbalanced situation?

Chapter 110: the ‘7-10 Interaction’ e.g. Venus in Capricorn Feb/17

In the myth of Psyche & Eros, Aphrodite threatens Psyche’s father with ‘bad stars’ (i.e. disa-ster) and, in a attempt to self-protect, he abandons Psyche to a lonely mountain, upon which a monster will devour her. The parallel between this myth & the Sun in Capricorn baby Jesus is straightforward. Does Eros stab himself with his own Aphroditean arrow because Venus is now pointing ‘down’ to incarnation?
