An important and very special sextile aspect between Venus and Mars occurs on March 11, 2023.
Venus is the archetype of beauty, of what we like, how likeable we feel and also how much we are liked. Mars is the libido of desire, lust and masculine principle and has opportunities with this meeting as Mars claims her, wants her and is ready to take the initiative to make her his.
An aspect of erotic passion but also a creative aspect since harmony is combined with action and thus the creation is born as the fruit of the union of the two sexual archetypes Venus and Mars.
How wonderful you will remark so it is possible to meet someone or someone, to feel the attraction or to indulge in the charm that someone or someone exerts on us.
YES… but not ONLY THOSE and not THAT EXACTLY…
Looking synthetically and in its entirety at how the cycle of the two planets moves I notice some very specific characteristics.
While Mars and Venus formed aspects to each other six times(!) in 2022, their sextile on March 11 will be their third in a row in 2023… and their next aspect will again be a sextile but… almost a year(!) from today and specifically on February 22, 2024!
What does this mean?
And why is it happening…?
Aside from the fact that the weeks just before and after Valentine’s Day in 2024 will be erotic, in the present and for 2023 it means that until then… the two planets will NOT come into an exact Ptolemaic aspect.
This is because as Venus will begin to approach Mars to conjunction, it will reach within five degrees of Mars in early July when both planets will be in Leo, and there she will once again begin to move away from him as Mars will gain speed while Venus will instead further reduce hers, until she turns retrograde on July 22, 2023.
So it’s as if she is turning her back on him, as if she is hesitant to go, as if she is at that time having second thoughts or just wants to take her time to better assess the situation.
But she doesn’t let him but rather takes her time, does her re-calculation and after turning direct she begins to form a prolonged sextile with him between about September 10th and October 10th 2023.
A sextile which will be NEARLY formed as the two planets approach within 1 degree of each other, but which will NOT FINALLY be EXACT, until four more months will pass and we arrive on February 22, 2024!
It’s as if the two lovers want to be together, or are already together, just that something is still not working the way they want it to, something is not exactly the way Venus wants it to be, or something is not the way Mars wants it to be.
What does it all mean?
New relationships that you make in the coming weeks have a very good chance of developing but will go through a period of revision in the summer before finally smoothing out gradually in September-October.
IN A RELATIONSHIP
If you are considering the next step this can be taken, just be prepared for “ups and downs” until you both feel equally prepared/ready. Generally this is a time when the relationship will deepen further after first going through a period of necessary work on yourselves.
IF YOU WANT TO RECONNECT
For those of you who have broken up and are considering a reunion the next few days through March 16 are ideal. After that things get more difficult until July when Venus retrograde will bring possibilities again.
NOTE: Naturally all of the above are general and are based only on the Venus/Mars cycle which I have presented, and do NOT take into account your personal horoscope in which there will be various other astrological factors, some positive and some negative, which should be studied, especially since we are talking about a movement between Venus and Mars which unfolds over a period of several months.
But… you get the general idea!
