This conjunction is starting to build and will last from now until Tuesday 8th July at 17:02 degrees Gemini.
Venus is now approaching one of the most prominent stars in the constellation of Orion, Rigel, a star that lies in the foot of the warrior in the skies. Rigel also sits at the end of the constellation of Eridanus, the river. This star does have a rather chaotic and independent side to it but it is also highly regarded by the star gazers of the past. Robson said it was one that brought "benevolence, honour, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability". Rigel also bring the potential for educating or informing and instructing people and is tied to teaching and education.
Venus is the planet of relationships and I have a feeling that our actions and words will be most important in informing our partners and they will teach them a lot of our current intentions, be they good ones or bad ones. I say actions, as Venus will be trine to Mars in Libra, ruled by Venus so there is a strong connection here that will be tightening and strengthening as this aspect connects up and gets closer. Remember that emotions are heightened as these two planets link up in a trine, and love and hate are closely linked. Will there be a love in, or will there be all out fights and will arguments ensue? Venus rising in her "Lucifer" stage before the Sun will be in a more feisty mood than you might think !!
Bernadette Brady things there are social implications brought forward by this conjunction and there may be a lack of respect for social conventions or rules and pretty much anything can go ahead. With Venus making a sextile to Uranus, the planet of shocks and rebellion over the next few days as well, on this occasion her interpretation may be quite appropriate. I think we will be in for an interesting couple of days when nothing is quite certain, breaking rules may be tempting and love and relationships will have many amazing highs and depressing lows...
