Venus opposing Saturn ---> Venus in Sagittarius opposing Saturn in Gemini
Late on Monday ... 9:33 PM EST, 6:33 PM PST ... Venus in Sagittarius opposed Saturn in Gemini. From now until after the New Moon in Sagittarius on Friday afternoon ... 3:47 PM EST, 12:47 PM PST ... we will be coping with this stern, cold, unresponsive, sadly unloving energy as part of the fabric of our world. Oppositions deal with relationship issues, with all their complex projected energy.
When coping with projections, we can be absolutely convinced that "other people" are causing our problems ... and often have plenty of examples to point to in our argument.
Projected energy is disowned energy. Habits, responses, attitudes, and behavior you have repressed, bottled up, neglected, cut off, or failed to accept as part of your conscious personality come back to you in the mirror of your experiences in the outside world.
They get your attention by making you uncomfortable, and like the orphaned and abandoned spiritual children that they are, these essential fragments of you ask for acceptance back into the center of yourself ... which is, after all, their source, the place they ultimately belong.
Venus opposing Saturn is an especially poignant one. Venus is the metaphor for relationships, love, your connections to other people, your abstract values, and your dealings with money.
