Venus and Mars conjunction in Aquarius is bringing a serious injection of positivity to all things love and sex. So what do these planets mean and why does this under Aquarius energy spell a whole lot of Va Va Voom in the bedroom?
Although it's been a while since Venus in retrograde 2022 loosened its grip, there's no denying that backspin was intense. Luckily it only happened every 18 months or so, unlike Mercury in retrograde which crops up FOUR times in 2022.
It's out with the old and in with the new with this conjunction, which serves to help us level up. Of all the astrological events in 2022, retrogrades get a pretty bad rep. However, there's no such thing as regrets—instead, there are lessons.
Here's why this conjunction is about to give you the boost you want, need, and deserve.
When is Venus and Mars conjunction in Aquarius?
On March 6, 2022, Venus and Mars will be in conjunction under Aquarius. This well-matched trio, in terms of energy, comes after a brief period in pragmatic Capricorn.
After the sparks lit by Pluto return and Pisces season, the new moon of March 2022 is all about inspiration. This brought a perfect opportunity to manifest our deepest desires—and the Venus and Mars conjunction is when these manifestations might well come true!
planetary conjunction meaning
When it comes to the world of astrology, learning all of the various intricacies of the fascinating topic can seem like an endless task. Getting to grips with everything from moon signs, to the ins and outs of earth signs, fire signs, air signs, and water signs is a lot—of fun that is!
One term you might have heard about, but didn't quite understand, is 'conjunction.' Simply put, in astrology a conjunction is when two planets align within the same sign. On top of this, they're also at the same degree of that sign.
This means that while plants are in conjunction, the areas in which the planets in question rule interact with each other and magnify each other; all under the lens of the sign which the conjunction occurs.
What does Venus represent?
Venus is the planet that shouts L.O.V.E. at the top of her lungs, and depending on where it stands in your astrology birth chart—it can dictate a hell of a lot about your personality.
Named after the goddess of love, pleasure, beauty—Venusian energy in astrology represents all that and more. Venus is also tied up in our relationship with finances, appearance, and how we choose to spoil ourselves.
Cupid might be the cute, chubby little cherub who draws back his bow, but Venus is the big boss when it comes to our love and romance styles. Its position impacts how we flirt, how we fall in love, interact in romantic relationships, show affection, your love horoscope for 2022, and more.
What does Mars represent?
Mars is the ruler of our sexual desires, physical attraction, our animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Named after the god of war, this planet is all about action, instead of reaction.
As Mars is all about the lascivious side of things, this conjunction with romantic Venus might be time to try out the best sex positions for your zodiac sign.
What does Aquarius represent?
Aquarius is a sign known for its innovation, experimentation, and eagerness to try new things. Aquarius compatibility reflects this, as does the concept of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius is not only an astrological concept but also the moniker given to the free love movement in the 1960s and 1970s. In other words, viewing Venus' love and Mars' carnal desires through an Aquarian magnifying glass is a supercharged trifecta of Va Va Voom in the bedroom!
