Is this love, baby, or is it just confusion?
— Jimi Hendrix
Venus enters Pisces at 4:31 pm EDT Saturday to powerfully evoke where love meets confusion. Powerful because Venus is exalted in Pisces — another way of saying empowered to express itself freely. Love because, among other things, Venus correlates with emotional attractions. Then, there’s confusion.
The likely correspondence to confusion has to do with the first aspect Venus will make upon entrance to Pisces — a conjunction with the centaur object 7066 Nessus.
Nessus entered Pisces only two days ago, its first foray outside of Aquarius in over eight years, and will remain in the first degree of Pisces for days on end because it moves slowly. Venus, on the other hand moves much faster.
When fast and slow objects function to enter a new sign at essentially the same time and come together in the first degree, it’s astonishing timing.
Astonishing timing indicates meaning, and gets the attention of astrologers. Centaur objects have meaning as well, the type that gets your attention, albeit in disquieting way.
Nessus is among the centaur objects. Centaurs are defined by their unstable, elongated and steeply inclined orbits that typically cross paths with the the behemoths (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and/or Neptune) of the outer solar system.
