Horizon (source: pexels.com)

Venus enters my ninth house on Wednesday where it will remain for about a month.

I’ve published posts about this annual event before, citing the interpretation of the transit provided by “Café Astrology.” In the past, however, I’ve focused on the word “exotic” that I cherry-picked from the passage. This time, my thoughts immediately went to another phrase and the idea that I might be able to expand my horizons over the next few weeks. Here is the complete passage:

“A taste for the exotic takes hold during this cycle. Routine affairs simply don’t seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally. Foreign people and places may particularly appeal now. You tend to be expansive and generous when it comes to love. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn’t consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match. Public relations work, promotion, and other such endeavors are favored now. It is more about how you express yourself than the specifics of what you are saying that helps sway others to your position. There could be especial rapport with foreigners and with women if you are traveling during this period. You are all the more attractive and charming with this position, which increases your popularity. If a romance were to begin now, it is more likely to be with someone of a different background or educational level, or someone you meet through travel. You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life — who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth.”

While I’m not sure how I could possibly become more “attractive and charming” than I already am, I am sure that I should take advantage of the beautiful weather and try to enjoy myself a little more this summer; all work and no play makes me a dull boy.

So, that’s what I’m going to do. There are enough hours in a day that I don’t have to wait to go on a vacation to get away. I’m going to resolve to get out more over the next few weeks because I’ve spent far too much time over the last few months being responsible and disciplined. I’ll worry about being a serious Capricorn again when all these planets start to transit my tenth house. It’s time to have some fun!
