This connection is active now and lasting through today 10th July 2014 for the next day and a half. It occurs at 21.09 degrees Gemini.
This is an interesting combination as Bellatrix is a star in the constellation of Orion that does have a successful side to it, but with the achievement comes problems in the form of vulnerability and exposing where you are lacking in ability and confidence. This star is also one of strength, bravery and courage but there does always seem to be a down side to any gains that you make and reversals in fortune can often follow. There can be a tendency to fight for lost causes if this star is prominent in your chart. It is connected to femininity and is nicknamed the" Amazon Star" in homage to strong women. Thomas Hood mentioned that “women born under the stars of Orion and especially of Bellatrix shall have mighty tongues!!”
The connection to Venus as normal brings connections to love, relationships and what we value into the equation. With this conjunction we may fight for what we love and value now but ultimately whatever we gain today we may lose later on. Might the person you adore see your weaknesses now and take advantage of them in the fullness of time? Robson seems to agree with me on this when he said about this connection that it created “much suffering through love affairs owing to unrestrained feelings”. Elsbeth Ebertin stated that this star brought the “reckless aggressiveness of a belligerent daredevil” and “it also would lead to advancement and success, but those who succeed always would have to allow for being surrounded with envy and hatred”. With this star you have to take the rough with the smooth.
What to make of this connection then? Well with Venus in a trine to Mars at this time as well, I feel today is going to be a passionate day where one will want to show one’s feelings on any situation, whether it be in a romantic sense or over what you value, either personally or socially. Your actions and words may put across the message that you want to voice, but you may have to pay a price in the future that the decisions that you make today. I suggest you do what you think is right and you let your feelings clearly known, as it is better to be honest with yourself than to betray what really is in your heart.
