Devotion and Passion: Venus in Taurus, Saturn in Scorpio

Like the strange duet from the Phantom of the Opera, Venus and Saturn in opposition on June 12 leap from the pages of all deliciously tragic love stories.

Enter our players. Love Goddess, Venus, claims all-things beautiful, sensual and pleasurable as her own. Saturn, the original Time Lord, advocates for the virtues of self-control -- temperance, moderation, restraint and discretion.

When Venus and Saturn dance together, they can find themselves at odds. Venus, from her luxurious home in Taurus, languishes in the pleasures of earthly delights. Saturn is less comfortable in watery Scorpio. The planet of boundary-making finds few of them in the Scorpionic depths. (How does one structure emotions?) And so there may be a tendency to reach out and impose one's ideologies on others. Saturn becomes the dour party-pooper at Venus' hedonic house party.

Or, imagine another version of the scene ... Venus indulges without restraint, but untempered sensuality soon fizzles and ceases to satisfy. (If you’ve tried it, you know it's true.) Saturn gives patience, stamina and endurance that can turn a tempestuous quickie into an all-night affair. The meeting of Venus and Saturn are building blocks for a tantric practice, in which desire is focused and channeled into deeper and more sublime states of experience.

Consider this: the original meaning of the word "passion" is to suffer; it is the pain of love. Devotion is to make a vow, a commitment, which sets apart a space or time or relationship as sacred. Taken together, these two are potent forces which have launched thousands of ships.

The opposition of Venus in Taurus and Saturn in Scorpio is exact at 9:09 pm PDT on Thursday, June 12, just a few minutes before the full Moon in Sagittarius. The full Moon occurs with the fixed star Rasalhague, said by the ancients to also be of the nature of Venus and Saturn, emphasizing the evening's theme.

Plan your full Moon festivities accordingly! Try not to have too much fun, or perhaps savor the art of delayed gratification.
