Venus/Jupiter can exaggerate what you want – there may appear to be more choices regarding a financial, relationship or value issue. And they will be exuberant and tempting. But some of those choices will be unwise, as Jupiter retrograde asks you to review before you say “yes.” And Venus’ inconjuncts to the South Node and Saturn Rx insist that a rule/limit from the past will narrow your choices. So really, you may only have one, viable option. The brakes will be applied and that issue from the past will not be ignored.
Uranus/Vesta adds urgency to an area of focus. Vesta is the ultimate focus/sacred flame, and Uranus suggests a sudden shot of devotion; an all-or-nothing, extreme jolt that clarifies what has the most value (Taurus). This will include old values/resources/habits being blown away.
The sextile to BML suggests this will involve some taboo, possibly magical/transcendent expressions of female energy. One of Lilith’s manifestations is the witch, and this is emphasized in Pisces, the sign that lies beyond reality. Here we have a wake-up call about what/who is essential, even if she’s “forbidden.”
Vesta is purity and BML is dark, raw sexuality (the prostitute, the other woman, the woman who belongs to no one). When they harmonize, what’s socially forbidden becomes a path to personal enlightenment and discipline (Vesta is untouchable in her own way – she also belongs to no one but herself).
Add Uranus’s liberation, and you have a whole new set of values and security at your fingertips.
So, if we consider Uranus/Vesta/BML and the aspects to Venus (also female energy and the ruler of Taurus) a picture emerges- you’re questioning what sounds/looks good regarding love and values. Is it hollow? At the same time, there’s one, undeniable choice. You’re not stuck in the past, but you are paying attention to what came before so you don’t make the same mistakes. Or maybe there’s an ongoing responsibility/tradition that still has value.
Either way, Uranus/Vesta in Taurus insists that part of this is about devoting yourself to a new goddess – a new expression of female energy/values (whether you’re a man or woman) who cracks the Saturn whip.
