Venus in Sagittarius
Passionate and fierce, this expression of the Goddess wants to feel the excitement of commitment. In traditional astrology, Sagittarius represents the philosophical ideals behind the political and spiritual structures of society. In this position, Venus – the receptive face of the Divine – wants to feel that she is part of something bigger than herself. She wants to feel the passion of commitment.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Venus is allied with Isis; Sagittarius is allied with Sekhmet. Sekhmet is the Warrior Feminine. If you need to cut cords to something that no longer serves you, call on Sekhmet. If you are looking for fierce commitment to a political, social, or spiritual cause, look for someone born with Venus in Sagittarius.
The shadow side of Sagittarius is zealotry. There are times when the expansive nature of this position goes too far, crossing over into a cruelty that can emerge when other opinions are not considered and diversity is not part of the equation. The balance of inspired passion and dogma is a moving tightrope for these natives.
Venus/Isis will move through the emanation of Sagittarius/Sekhmet from October 7 until November 5. This is a good time to consider your commitments. Do they inspire you and make your heart sing? If not, consider what will.
