Venus through 23° Aries-0° Taurus; Part 4/5
Last week’s Venusian message was centered around warning—particularly toward potentiality, and what astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed as an obsession for the mind in which it “finds itself confronted with a totally unfamiliar and as yet inexperienced type of potency [for which it] finds difficult at first to adjust to, for its new world of perception and possibilities of action…”
These current celestial learning curves are simply really something this year, not to mention this current Venusian thumbhold between Saturn and Pluto.
Continued, “one may rush ahead excitedly and lose his bearings—one should try to reach a state of calm watchfulness, and to learn that at this level too there are limits and restrictions, i.e. laws expressing this new type of order…”
Which is to say—with such potentiality abound, specifically regarding your personal desires—you may want to take pause to first regard your new boundaries for and toward such desires, particularly within such new environments.
There’s an old saying that reminds us that ‘a full cup must be carried steadily…’
Throughout the process of setting personal boundaries, as well as once these are set, it will be imperative that you devote your heart in an alignment with your inner voice, and I cannot stress this enough to you, dear reader… this will assure that you are ‘so attuned to the truth of a situation that you know exactly what is needed; identifying the pivotal power-point in a chaotic situation; seeing your destiny in the larger pattern of events; seizing opportunity; and participating in the higher harmony…’
And perhaps most critically—this personal participation, should you choose to participate, of course, will support your personal integrity (which is what typically attracts to you what you’re attracted to).
Then, at the end of the week, Venus moves into Taurus…
But not before truly realizing, most fully, these newly laid (and hopefully natural-to-you) boundaries.
Rudhyar speaks of how it is imperative that one possess a sense of “peace and inner contentment with one’s essential destiny… to meet the everyday world… but it is there [within the everyday world] that the substance for concrete action has to be found, and every effective activity has to be focused; thus the boundaries imposed by the very nature of this activity have to be consciously accepted.”
Again—like reflects like; like attracts like.
And this, too, is inherently Venus in Aries—to meet the everyday world charging forward, advancing toward the prize.
However, this personal power potency must be focalized and substantiated, this is the trick… and this will likely take much of your time and energy this week—figuring out a magician’s slight of hand.
❝Indeed, the only truly serious questions are ones that even a child can formulate. Only the most naive of questions are truly serious. They are the questions with no answers. A question with no answer is a barrier that cannot be breached. In other words, it is questions with no answers that set the limit of human possibilities, describe the boundaries of human existence.❞

I will get into Venus moving into Taurus in the next/fifth and final Venusian Ventures post next week… and, just a friendly reminder—after the upcoming fifth and final Venus Ventures post I will be moving on to Mars Movements, as Mars will be moving into Aries and thereby speeding much up in terms of motivations and our instinct to make things happen, as well as all sustaining actions…
