Venus sextile Uranus

Things have a funny way of working out when Venus forms a sextile to Uranus in the sky. Who knew that getting turned down for a prize would result in a triumph in another quarter? Or that leaving a situation you thought you couldn’t live without would give you more freedom than before? It takes a while to learn that we are more capable than we imagined. That’s why slow moving planets like Uranus are so important – they force you to view things in a broader perspective. And now that you’ve taken in that vista, it’s unlikely you’ll ever go back to living in a small corner again. Signs most affected: Taurus, Cancer, Libra, and Aquarius
