Venus in Aries Square Saturn in Capricorn: Finding Balance
Venus in Aries is square Saturn in Capricorn, exact tomorrow.
Because Saturn is the planet of responsibility, our joy and pleasure can feel a little burdened when it’s in a hard aspect to Venus.
With Venus in Aries, there is even more distance from softness or sensuality. While an Aries Venus is passionate, it isn’t necessarily tender.
We might want to counteract all this action-oriented energy with some more receptive energy.
Orange blossom has a soft, sweet scent, often used in perfumes, candles, and oils. It is used for love spells and to attract love and has long been associated with weddings and marriage.
Orange blossom oil is often distilled into a water, similar to rose water. It can be taken internally but also used directly on the skin to soften and tone, especially on the delicate and often problematic skin of the face. It acts as an astringent on oily skin and soothes sunburn and inflammation.
The oil has a relaxing effect, so it can be used in aromatherapy to promote sleep and calm stress.
Because orange blossom water is such a gentle and accessible way to incorporate some soft, inviting energy into your life, it can be useful during a Venus-Saturn square, which typically has a harder energy.
It’s about finding the balance between what’s going on in the sky and what you’d like to encourage in your own life.
