On May 6th, Venus in Aries squares the South Node in Capricorn/North Node in Cancer. She squares Saturn Rx in Capricorn on May 7th and Pluto Rx in Capricorn on May 9th.
That’s a lot of pressure on Venus who just wants to be free to follow her impulses regarding love, money or values. The square to the Nodes suggests a passionate, new Venus-themed issue will bring you to a point where you have to choose between old rules/limits (South Node) or a new, more authentic path that’s aligned with your needs (North Node).
The North Node is the way to go, but the squares to Saturn and Pluto mean you’ll have to deal with restrictions, domination and old responsibilities before you move forward.
