Venus and Mars are aligning and will actually conjunct in Aquarius on February 22nd. This is incredibly passionate, creative energy, and we’ll likely feel this as soon as they are both in Aquarius and for the rest of February!

About Mars in Astrology

Mars is the planet of energy and drive in astrology. This is the planet that takes the initiative, motivates us to act, and is willing to go down new paths no one has gone down before, making it a pioneer.

Mars is one of the war rulers, and it’s full of energy and ready to go. When this is channeled wisely, productively, and in a healthy way, Mars can inspire action that no one else can in astrology. When it isn’t, we’re frustrated and easily provoked.

Mars is the ruling planet for Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, full of enthusiasm and excitement. Mars naturally connects with the first house, ruling new beginnings and a fresh start.

About Venus in Astrology

Venus is the planet of relationships in astrology. This is the planet that wants to connect but tends to take it easy instead of pushing. Everyone comes to Venus, not the other way around.

Venus is a pleasant planet and is considered one of the more beneficial ones. Venus wants everything to come easily, effortlessly, and without too much stress or upset.

Venus is the ruling planet for two zodiac signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus connects with resources and the physical world and wants to take it easy with everything it does, while Libra connects with commitment and wants to bring peace to everything it does.

About Aquarius in Astrology

Aquarius is an Air sign, which makes it sociable and engaging. Aquarius rules our friendships, any groups we belong to, and the masses at large.

The natural ruling planet for Aquarius is Uranus, the planet of change. Aquarius is a sign that is quite open to change in spite of being a Fixed sign. This just means that’ll see it through t whatever changes Aquarius sets out to make.

Aquarius rules the future, our hopes and dreams, and along with change, this has likely been a big focus for all of us lately, and that continues. Thanks to Pluto entering Aquarius, we’re now at the start of a whole new journey, a whole new era. 

What it means When Venus & Mars Tango

So, Venus and Mars are touring Aquarius very soon and will align in this zodiac sign. What does it mean when Venus and Mars tour the same sign and conjunct?

Whenever Venus and Mars meet up, this greatly increases passion. It’s fantastic for romance, dating, and bringing spice into your relationship, as we’re all feeling a little feistier.

Venus attracts while Mars pursues, so they’re perfect complements to one another and love to work together. In Aquarius, this can mean we’re passionate, but it might be in a more distant way, so rather than sloppy passion, it’s intellectual.

Since Aquarius rules our dreams for the future, we can also channel passionate energy into that instead of our relationships. We can throw ourselves into our dreams and feel heavily invested in the future.

Venus and Mars combined are also super creative energy, so we may focus instead on creative projects and ventures. We can feel more inspired than usual and have more energy for our work.

No matter what, it’s important to have something to channel the passionate energy into; otherwise, that passion can turn on you and make for supreme grumpiness. It can be easy to get frustrated and lash out because of it, but that doesn’t really help you, so try to focus the energy somewhere healthy and productive.
