A Venus/Mars conjunction is supposed to be favorable for romance. The thinking is that women are from Venus and men are from Mars, so what’s to keep this combination of cosmic energies from creating a match made in heaven?

Well, that might have been true back in the day when men got their way, women had no say, and gender binarism was here to stay, but a lot of things have changed over the past 2500 years.

Although a conjunction still signifies that two planets are in the same place at the same time in the sky above, it doesn’t mean that those planets are on the same page – much less see things eye-to-eye.

It’s true that women are from a different planet than men (astrologically speaking at least), so any assumption that guys are naturally fluent in gal pal or women can talk full bro-speak is mistaken. What can happen when these planets get together is a recognition of differences and an appreciation for the other person’s perspective.

Instead of reverting to stereotype, the Venus/Mars conjunction in Aquarius on February 22nd provides an opportunity to ditch the role-playing and to get to know an individual for who they truly are.
