The Venus-Mars conjunction falls on Valentine's Day 2022 and we are seriously here for it! This union of opposites is spelling success for love magic, confidence and empowerment, so let's find out more about it…
What is the Venus-Mars conjunction?
This basically means that the planets Venus and Mars are joined in the sky and will be sat at the exact same degree of Capricorn on Valentine's Day! This year, it's extra special because of the date it falls on as well as the fact that it's going to last a whole TWO MONTHS afterwards, much longer than usual, and so we have a long window of time to experience the powerful magic of this union.
What does it mean for us?
They say that women are from Venus and men are from Mars, and this is because Venus represents feminine energies and Mars represents masculine ones. Because of this polarity, we'll have an opposites attract situation on Valentine's Day and for the two months afterwards.
You might experience a union in love and relationships. Many single people have reported meeting their partner on a Venus-Mars conjunction! If you're already in a relationship, this transit can really spice things up and even repair any misunderstandings and disconnects that have been brewing since Venus and Mercury were retrograde recently.
Individually, this can also be a powerful time for confidence and empowerment, since we are more aware of the opposites within us – perhaps you've been too much in a masculine mode of living – working hard, chasing and pushing yourself to be strong – is it time to lean back into your feminine energy and rest a little, open yourself up to receive?
This can also be a potent transit for art and creative expression since the combination of masculine and feminine (or any opposites really – light and dark, push and pull, yin and yang) result in creation itself! Allow inspiration to guide you towards creating something new in your life.
How to make the most of the Venus-Mars conjunction?
Since all planets are now moving direct (no more retrogrades for a while – woohoo!) this really is a fabulous time to set some intentions on what you truly WANT.
Both Venus and Mars represent desire, albeit in different ways. Mars is desire that we take action towards and Venus is desire that's more passive, we want it to come to us. Explore your desires in more depth – what do you want in your relationships? What do you desire in your work, life, free time? Let these desires shape your actions and your energy and watch your whole reality change.
