Not only does Venus move into Libra August 16th UT, but also a day later Venus crosses the celestial equator (how very Libran)from Northern declination to Southern declination. When Venus moves into in Aries (she shifts to the north, when  she moves to Libra, she shifts to the south) with Aries and Libra being the equatorial markers of the zodiac, as Cancer and Capricorn are the Solsticial markers .  Take note of any shifts you may feel. What appears to be subtle shifts in planetary movements, can often times be more significant than we think.

Venus a fast moving planet, as the above ‘Phases” diagram shows, Venus is now a bright evening star and is still as yet not in her brightest position, still to reach max elongation by Nov 1st. Her brightest phase will be  beginning of December as she comes closer to Earth before her retrograde starts on the Solstice Dec 21 at 28 Capricorn and finishes conjunct Pluto at 9 Capricorn 40 days later.

AN interesting connection with the next exact Pluto Uranus square occurring with Venus at her max elongation, being 47 degrees away from the Sun. Also as the declination chart below shows, Venus will also move out of bounds OOB in October  and be at 27 degrees at her max declination South at the time of the exact square. More on that later.

For now Venus will spend 27 days in Libra and plays out her role in the cardinal T-Square beginning with a square to Pluto next weekend August 24th and culminating throughout the  week after.

We may feel more than prepared to say it how its is, find a voice to speak up for ourselves and put our agenda on the table. Up until now, we have planned and thought much about what has been going on, feeling deeply and deciphering how to express ourselves without creating too much damage , friction and being cautious of not regretting what we have done. Venus in Libra helps in her elegant and strong demeanor, to make us take up the role we are meant to play in all of this unfolding drama.

The cycle of Venus with the Sun is known as the synodic cycle, meaning meeting place, when two planetary bodies return to the same meeting place in relationship to one another. One of the great features of the Venus cycle is that we can count on her being in the same place in relation to the Sun in the sky every 1.6 years- 19 months- 584 days. In 5 complete synodic cyles, 584 x 5 = 2920 days = 8 years, during which Venus creates her magical pentacle, counting either 5 retrograde inferior conjunction points, or 5 superior conjunction points, Venus will return, within 2 degrees, to the same sign, and same phase, the same part of her cycle that she was at 8 years before. This is called the Venus Return. We experience the Venus return at the ages of 8, 16, 24, 32, 40 48 etc , with Venus returning to the same position and phase that she was at birth.

So as descriptive and informative as Venus is in a particular sign, her phase and her return to a phase is more so, enriching her story and our experience of understanding her cycle.

So recall  her last max elongation 19 months ago(from Nov 1st 2013) when Venus was in the exact same position in the sky as she will be on Nov 1st.
What was happening in you life.?

Also recall 8 years ago  from December 2013  , when Venus was at the same, phase, position and sign . Get ready for the next retrograde to help by looking back, think of what you were up to back then, who were you with, what were you doing? Be prepared for the next loop and star point.

Planetary Cycle  Common Themes
All cycles can be understood in terms of a simple metaphor, that of the four seasons of temperate climes.  In order to understand this metaphor, it is useful to visualise the start of the year being at the vernal equinox, i.e. at the time when the Sun is crossing the celestial equator towards the hemisphere in which we happen to live.  In the Northern hemisphere this is the Aries equinox, and in the Southern hemisphere it is the Libra equinox.

At the vernal equinox, or at least during the season of spring at which time the vernal equinox occurs, new life emerges through the surface of the earth as plants which have been quiescent throughout the winter begin to stir into life.  This is analogous to the ‘seed moment’ of a cycle, i.e. the start of the cycle.  When the cycle we are studying consists of two planets’ relationship with each other, this part of the cycle corresponds to the conjunction or ‘New Moon’ phase.  In the context of an individual horoscope, this corresponds to the position of the planet at birth.

Ninety degrees further around the cycle, we encounter the opening square aspect.  This is analogous to the summer solstice, the point of full flowering, the time when the purpose of the original seed is displayed for all to see.  This is a time of commitment to purpose, in spite of changed circumstances.  It is a time of fluorishing of life in all its colour and vigour, the peak of natural vivacity, the lush and fragrant warmth of midsummer promise.  This corresponds to the first quarter phase in the lunar cycle and the first square of a planet to its natal position in a given horoscope.

Another ninety degrees further around, we come to the 180º point from where we started, analogous to the autumnal equinox.  This is where the plant bears fruit, where it disseminates its essence, where its seed is dispersed, where it releases its very identity into the collective matrix.  This is the opposition point:  things cannot develop any further in a positive, outgoing, growing direction; rather, they must start to decline, to shrivel, to concentrate, to conserve and to prepare for hardships ahead.  This corresponds to the Full Moon phase of the lunar cycle and to the opposition point of a planet to its natal place.

Finally, after a further ninety degrees, we arrive at the 270º point, or the closing square aspect.  At this stage we have reached the depths of winter, the fallow, resting and preparatory stage of the life cycle.  It is at this time that harshness of environment and the absence of life take centre stage.  This corresponds to the last quarter of the lunar cycle and the closing square of a planet to its natal place.

As the depths of winter recede, we find ourselves back at the vernal point, where a new cycle of life begins again.

It is possible to examine the myriad other aspects which relate different stages in the cycle to the starting point, in between the four stages mentioned above, e.g. the sextile and trine aspects (60º and 120º respectively), or the quintile aspect (72º).  However, for the purposes of this exploration of outer-planet cycles it may be simpler to restrict ourselves to the conjunction, opposition and the opening and closing squares.
