Venus conjoined Chiron in Aries just a few minutes ago. That planetary alignment will be followed up by tonight’s/tomorrow morning’s full moon/lunar eclipse (which forms a tight square to Saturn).
It’s a good day to try to like what you see when you look in the mirror. A crisis of self-worth might be in the stars for those of us who internalize our worth. We might need to take a good, hard look at ourselves and say “You know what? I look pretty good for someone my age.” Or maybe someone will leave a comment on one of our social media pages that rubs us the wrong way, and we’ll the need to defend ourselves. I’m reminded of Paulina Porizkova’s recent online endeavors to remind the world that people actually grow old — including former supermodels. Telling her haters to go fuck themselves is probably quite therapeutic for someone whose natal Venus is already in Aries. Perhaps we’ll all get a taste of that with Venus joining Chiron today.
For those of us who externalize our self-worth, there might be a crisis of actual worth in your stars during this eclipse. Perhaps the stock market will continue its plunge tomorrow morning. The Far East markets will be opening not long after the eclipse goes exact. Whatever happens, it will be wise to keep events in perspective. If you lose money you never actually had as a result of a stock-market correction, try to ask yourself if that is really going to leave a permanent scar on your sense of self-worth.
It’s an unusual set of circumstances, astrologically speaking. I’m not typically the astrologer people go looking to when they need to put a positive spin on a bad day, but in this case I can honestly say that over the next several hours, life will be what you make of it. Don’t look at yourself as someone who has lost something during this cosmic event and you won’t feel like a loser when it is all over.
