If you are looking for some joy and hope in the middle of the winter and “shutdown” doldrums, look toward Venus.
Venus is in Sagittarius, the sign ruled by Jupiter, while she is making a positive aspect to Jupiter. Sag. and Jupiter are all about outward movement and growth. They are the masters of exuberance, optimism and new experiences. When coupled with the goddess of love (Venus) they will give us the desire to be bold, explore new relationships – believe in ourselves.
Venus also rules money so be sure that you do go too overboard with throwing your money away on new adventures!
This will be especially true if you have Venus rising, Sun or Node but we all can take in some expansion of joy right now.
