Venus and Uranus are nearing their final opposition of the year, both squaring the lunar nodes which recently ingressed into the Cancer/Capricorn axis. Whenever Uranus is active in the collective psyche, there's a surge of erratic instability, unexpected change, or a wild-card possibility.

With Uranus opposing Venus in Libra, such changes can be quite constructive, and they are likely to surface in the arena of relationships. Perhaps, toward the end of this week, there's merely a change in the social sphere or reality, a new connection for communication, or an electrifying new interest. Venus/Uranus can shake us out of a relational rut, which can be exciting or anxiety producing.

Venus in Libra seeks to build stable bridges and create rapport, dialogue, and support. Uranus, however, adds an element of the quirky and unusual. This can be a compelling moment of reaching toward a fresh and progressive perspective or opening another to a unique point of view. However it shows up for you, both planets invite a renovation in outlook or creative self-expression.

And as mentioned, both Venus/Uranus squaring the nodes adds a karmic layer, a sense of having to resolve or complete something unfinished. Yes, it can feel like a crossroads in an ongoing dialogue or relational issue, or perhaps the wild-card has emerged, seeking to liberate the standard relationship/dating narrative. If creatively inclined, flow into an innovative approach on through the weekend. Experiment and see what happens. No commitments are needed just yet.
