The next Venus Star Point: March 25, 2017 at 5 Aries – Arielle Guttman –
Every eight years Venus completes two pentagrams over the zodiac. One is the Morning Star (MS) penta and the other is the Evening Star (ES) penta. These star points are derived from the moment the Sun, Earth and Venus reach maximum partile conjunction (or cazimi). This next one is in Aries and it will be the Morning Star. There will in fact be three passes of Venus over the Star Point degree in the next three months.
- Venus direct at 5 Aries on February 10th
- Venus retrograde at 5 Aries conjunct the Sun = Star Point = March 25th
- Venus direct at 5 Aries May 7th
This gives a three-month window to incorporate the meaning of this particular VSP into our lives.The new Aries Star Point will be a Morning Star, which last occurred eight years ago at 7 Aries. The Evening Star Venus occurred four years ago, in 2013, at 8 Aries. So the areas of your chart that are most sensitive to this are 4-8 Aries or 4-8 Cardinal, where Venus’ message will be felt most intensely.
What are some of the characteristics of an Aries VSP? If you were born with this placement, you are someone who sets out on the journey of life to discover yourself most fully. It describes the archetype of the hero, soldier, adventurer, rescuer or leader whose mantra would always be: I did it my way. But young-ish, even when mature, this Aries VSP retains its youthful spirit. The “Hero” motif, most importantly, because these are the youthful spirits that are bold and visionary and take it upon themselves to pave the way forward.
The Aries VSP periods are times when any one of us might feel motivated to lead the charge. Because of this, and because of its degree and phase this year, I have named it the Year of Passionate Activism. There will be a lot of screaming mouths, like babies, all around us. How do we try to contain it and can we contain this fiery, warrior-like energy of Aries, as it continues to play out through 2017?
