Transiting Venus conjoined my natal Saturn just a few hours ago. Curiously, I began the year with Saturn conjoining my natal Venus, making these meetings of my chart ruler and the ruler of my sun sign a definite theme for 2022.

What’s interesting about these conjunctions (and everything else that is going on in my chart), is that I’m so happy to be left to my own devices lately. I published a post a couple of weeks ago entitled “I Walk Alone” where I detailed this current state of satisfaction with myself. Yesterday, I even found myself obsessing about the day I spent in Las Vegas by myself a few years ago. It was that day that inspired me to book my next solo trip to Las Vegas because I discovered just how much easier it is for me to travel by myself. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not an anti-social person. I just enjoy my own company.

My current state of mind is mentioned in the interpretation of today’s meeting of Venus and Saturn on “Café Astrology.” The site’s prediction reads as follows:

“You are attracted to people with maturity, worldly wisdom, and a solid sense of values (perhaps an advisor, elder, or teacher), and are disinclined to frivolous activities or wasting your time. In fact you may be pleased and happy to be alone or perhaps with just one other person that you know well. On the other hand, you may feel quite cool or withdrawn in a crowd. You are also restrained and careful about spending money at this point, and that’s as it should be. It is a good time to reflect, set priorities, enjoy simple pleasures, and appreciate quality time with yourself or with your chosen companion. A commitment could be made now.”

I don’t know how much longer I’ll be performing in this one man show because I know that I also crave social interaction. For the moment, however, I’m not going to allow myself to feel as if I’m a misanthrope for being content with my current circumstances. I’ve known a lot of needy people in my life who have been compelled to let me know that there must be something wrong with me for not needing them. I will not allow myself to feel guilty because I refuse to facilitate their neuroses.

For now, I’m going to enjoy this state of mind because it feels perfectly natural to me. Maybe I’ll feel different in the not-too-distant future, or maybe not. Only time will tell . . .
