Hey it’s Angel…
After a turbulent yet enlightening week, get ready to buckle up for another cosmic bump in the road.
This time, the cosmic clash has to do with love and romance. Venus in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces will be meeting each other in a cloud of confusion.
This weekend’s dilemma comes from a conflict between Venus — the planet of love, beauty and money, and Neptune — the planet of illusion, compassion, and dreams. .
Sometimes we hold onto an ideal of who we think our romantic partner is or could be. We place expectations on them that they never signed up for and get upset when they act out of line with the ideals we have projected onto them.
This weekend is one of those times.
On Sunday night, Venus squaring Neptune will lead us into an evening where our rose colored glasses can get us into trouble and bring us down a path of disappointment.
We may be disillusioned to find that our fantasy about our partner does not match reality.
For example, if you are single, you may be prone to overly idealize a new love interest, despite watching them toss red flags left and right like a football referee. While other people may see glaring problems, your romantic tunnel vision will keep you blind and (temporarily) happy.
This energy makes it very easy to lie to yourself, lie to others, or be generally deceived. This dishonesty isn’t always intentional, sometimes Neptunian deception occurs because we truly want to see the best in others — even when it’s not really there.
Be careful not to throw caution to the wind and trust the wrong situation. It may feel like a fairy tale at first, but chances are you will be in for a rude awakening. It’s easy now to let someone take advantage of you, if you’re not careful.
If you’re in a new relationship, you may feel like the honeymoon period is over. The disappointments you can experience now may seem too difficult to handle. Just realize that things are not as they seem, and this too shall pass.
Take the time to check in with yourself and the expectations you place on others Sunday and Monday. Are your expectations of someone else based on who they truly are? Or are they based on who you want them to be? Be honest with yourself.
You can learn a lot about your partner now, as long as you don’t overreact out of insecurity. This is not a time for judging yourself based on other people’s opinion. There is a tendency to feel like a victim during this influence, so make sure you are not being a victim of your own emotions.
This is also not a good time for self discipline, so go ahead and splurge a little if you feel the need to, just be aware that you might feel a tendency to over do it. Be careful of overindulgence in food, drugs and alcohol. These cravings are likely due to a passing desire for escapism. We all feel this way at times, so know you’re not alone.
On the other hand, the positive side of this influence may bring about a truly beautiful moment in your life, even if it’s fleeting, or filled with fantasy. Beauty itself needs no explanation. Enjoy the experience and let it go.
Use this energy creatively by pouring your feelings into a project. Art of all kinds is supported now, so paint that painting, write that poem, and do whatever you need to get your creative juices flowing! Right now, you’ll find your creative outlet even more therapeutic than you normally do.
Just remember: Whatever gets revealed on Sunday does not mean it will be set in stone forever. This influence will only be felt through Monday, so give yourself time to re-evaluate your circumstances later in the week before you make your final decision. You’ll be in a better position to act decisively in a few days, when you have all of the facts.
Your lighthouse in the cosmic fog,
Hey it’s Angel…
