This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius ... at least as far as planet Venus is concerned! With the arbiter of good taste in the offbeat sign of Aquarius (through March 27), it's time to entertain our eclectic sensibilities and stand up for our interests in the unusual.
With shows like American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow, there's plenty of inspiration to dust off forgotten treasures and adopt them into our lives. While Venus' passage through Aquarius doesn't limit our appreciation to just old treasures, it does remind us to stay true to our unique tastes regardless of others' values or opinions. Beauty, when it comes to Venus in Aquarius, is definitely in the eye of the beholder.
To make the most of Venus' individualistic streak this month, she wants you to exercise your power to choose. If the act of choosing has become a rote exercise of repetition, it's time to throw yourself back into the shopping ring where intuition, your unique sense of style and a willingness to take some fashion risks reigns supreme. Whether this means buying a new or vintage item is up to you; this transit is simply trying to awaken that inner stylist that has been hiding beneath sheep’s' clothing.
Places crawling with choices -- from flea markets to designer discount stores -- are good places to start for honing decision-making skills and tapping into your own aesthetic. Antiquing can be another way to strengthen your eye for jewels in the rough. Of Venus-in-Aquarius' many strengths, culling items from different shops to create an original aesthetic for yourself will teach you just how resourceful and capable one can be with they trust their inner quirk. The satisfaction that comes from eyeing-to-buying without asking anyone's feedback but your own is a truly positive expression of this month’s cosmic weather. Enjoy!
