“the lake is cold
the snows are sudden
the wild cherry bends
and winter’s a burden
In your hand I feel
spring burn in the bud.” Mary Mackey

Mars, the planet of desire and action is now widely conjunct Venus, the goddess of love and abundance. These two are known in astrology as,”the cosmic lovers” and when they are together it heralds a good time for love and romance.
Mars and Venus are both in Capricorn now and will be conjunct on the day that Venus stations and turns direct – Jan 29th. At that time Mars will be at 9 degrees and Venus at 11 Capricorn. Venus turning direct is another indication of a better time for relationships (of all kinds.)
Venus and Mars will move into Aquarius and travel together through late March.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Birds singing happily in the house.”
