Here’s a photo from “The Meg.” I watched the movie on the plane when I flew to Las Vegas in March. It was breathtakingly stupid.
Anyway, the reason that I’m thinking about it is because Venus is about to enter my eighth house where it will join both the sun and Mercury. Appropriately, my thoughts are not only turning inward, but they’re getting a little deeper than they were when all these planets were transiting my superficial seventh house.
Cafe Astrology describes an eighth-house Venus transit as follows:
“During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.”
I don’t know if I need more depth in my life as much as a need the aforementioned financial gains, but I’ll take what I can get. As I mentioned a few posts back, I’ve felt a little like a rudderless cruise ship lately: adrift but not too worried about it because the buffet is well-stocked and there’s yoga on the Lido Deck every afternoon.
I don’t know if Venus’ ingress into the eighth house means that this sort of boring pleasure cruise is about to end or if the ship is about to sink, but I’m ready for whatever this cosmic shift may bring. When the sun and Mercury simultaneously moved from Taurus to Gemini just a few days ago, I felt somewhat energized — both mentally and physically. I’d like that trend to continue. With all three planets headed toward the top of my chart, it would be terrific if some of the opportunities coming my way actually turned out to be genuine gains.
“The Meg” was full of fake-outs: one minute everyone was safe, and the next minute there was — surprise! — another disaster looming. While I don’t feel as if the past few months have been disastrous, I have felt as if the universe has been teasing me with fake-outs and opportunities that have not gone anywhere. With Venus entering this Karmic part of my chart, I’d like some of these opportunities to turn out to be actual cosmic blessings. I could use a surprise or two in my life.
