If you have not been looking at Venus each and every evening then tonight is the night to begin! A few weeks ago they looked like this:
These bodies are close to us now and showing bright and big in the sky. This evening, when the sun goes down, step outside and look southwest slightly by west. There you can see the crescent Moon approaching Venus and Mars.
Try to catch them before the sky fades to black. A conjunction of bright planets framed by twilight blue is especially lovely!
The ancient story goes like this:
Venus, a beautiful and attractive goddess was married to Vulcan the God of the Forge. He was married more to his work and was less than desirable lover.
Interesting fact: The astronomy of this story is playing out exactly right now and tomorrow evening!
Where this is taking place in transit to your natal chart is of the utmost importance!

Now, run outside and gaze up!
A postscript from Ambika.
Last evening I took my own advice and after a sunset meditation, went outside to bask in the energy of these planets. Wanting to add another image I snapped on and though the Moon was a lovely crescent, my camera saw more of an orb. I chose this one as I am drawn to the unusual texture in Venus as well. Mars is there very fain and though Neptune is present, we are unable to see him.
It amazes me how the characters in this story are present in our evening sky!
If you are wondering where Vulcan is, he can be found near the setting Sun opposite this show!
Go on back outside!
