Seize Opportunities for Success With These 4 Planets

Posted on December 10, 2020

A woman sits on her laptop in her kitchen with a cup of coffee in her hand. She is reading her astrology horoscope.

At this very moment, we are in a period that is heightened for potential astrology success thanks to Venus sextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. Venus is one of the beneficial planets, making Venus one of the astrology planets you can use for success.

This began on December 10th with Venus sextile Pluto and continues into next week with Venus sextile Jupiter on Monday (on Solar eclipse day!) and Venus sextile Saturn on Tuesday.

The trio of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto have formed the Capricorn stellium of 2020, creating all sorts of chaos, but Venus is making this energy extremely positive for us right now.

If you’ve been looking for a time to push for positive opportunities, now would be it!

We’ll explain how you can do just that.

Sextiles in Astrology

When two bodies in astrology are certain distances away from each other in the zodiac, these are called aspects. Some aspects are challenging, while others are beneficial, and sextiles are one of the beneficial aspects.

A sextile occurs when two astrological bodies are two full signs away from one another. Venus is in Scorpio and is currently two full signs away from Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn.

Sextiles are considered positive aspects of opportunity, but you have to put in some effort. It won’t just come to you out of nowhere.

That means this energy is now available for all of us to use, but we have to do the work to use it. This goes along very well with Capricorn’s energy, who wants discipline and focus, and Scorpio, who has passionate energy needing to be put to good use.

Venus Sextile Pluto: December 10, 2020

As we mentioned, this began with Venus sextile Pluto yesterday, so we’re likely feeling the strong Scorpio energy in the mix since Pluto is the natural ruling planet of Scorpio, the sign Venus is in.

That passionate energy really needs an outlet, but we have an easier time doing that and making it something that works in our favor.

Venus Sextile Jupiter: December 14, 2020

Next comes Venus sextile Jupiter on Monday, and this comes with the Solar eclipse in Sagittarius. Jupiter just happens to be the natural ruling planet for Sagittarius so that we can feel extra Sagittarius: optimistic, lucky, open-minded, adventurous, and expansive.

The sextile to Jupiter energy is excellent for pursuing opportunities that have been opened up thanks to the productive use of the passionate energy from the sextile to Pluto. We may find other people to be extremely helpful as well.

Venus Sextile Saturn: December 15, 2020

Finally, we have Venus sextile Saturn on Tuesday, and Saturn is the natural ruling planet for Capricorn, the sign of the three planets Venus is sextile. This helps us to set us up for the long-term, to look ahead and make proper plans to keep moving toward success going into 2020.

All of this positive energy means nothing if we’re not setting ourselves up to continue to make use of it going into a new year, and Saturn helps us do that.

Note the Changing of Zodiac Signs

Venus is sextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto just before Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn are changing signs. Venus enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, Saturn enters Aquarius on Thursday, and Jupiter enters Aquarius on Saturday.

This means that part of what’s going on right now is a feeling that we have to get things done immediately. Otherwise, we may lose the chance to. This is truly the time to pursue opportunities to set yourself up for a long time to come.

Where YOU Should Focus for Astrological Success

For this section, you do need to know your natal chart positions. Don’t know them? Go use the free birth chart generator to create your natal chart and figure out what these planets are doing for you!

On a personal level, you’ll want to focus first on the houses in your natal chart this occurs in.

The planets are between 23 and 29 degrees with Venus in Scorpio and Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn, so find the natal house 23 - 29 degrees Scorpio falls (that’s where Venus is right now) and the natal house 23 - 29 degrees Capricorn falls (that’s where Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are right now).

The areas of life those two houses rule are likely the big focus for you personally and can work together in cooperation to benefit you.

If you don’t know the 12 houses, make sure to review them on the houses page!

Aries

Inconjunct Venus and square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

Look at the internal foundation for what you’ve been forced to confront and change this year, and work on strengthening that while being flexible.

Taurus

Opposite Venus and trine Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

Great opportunity for building something new for the long-term if you can avoid laziness and stubbornness

Gemini

Inconjunct Venus and inconjunct Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

This is a big time for you to be flexible and adjust on the fly; don’t get stuck in your ways or let frustration get the better of you.

Cancer

Trine Venus and opposite Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

This year’s battle has likely been external, but there are helpful forces you can go to now that show you how to move forward.

Leo

Square Venus and inconjunct Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

Laziness or stubbornness may get in the way of allowing you to adjust as needed - perhaps out of exhaustion from the year - but you have to continue to be flexible.

Virgo

Sextile Venus and trine Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

You can spot opportunities, create new ones easily, use confidence, and improve security for a long time now.

Libra

Semisextile Venus and square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

You have the opportunity to make positive use of the major overhauls that have been made this year may be there but requires much more effort from you.

Scorpio

Conjunct Venus and sextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

You can attract opportunities with greater ease right now to set yourself up for a long time and may find others to be very helpful.

Sagittarius

Semisextile Venus and semisextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

Opportunities can be abundant at the moment but require you to put in extra effort, so they likely won’t just come to you, and you have to go to them!

Capricorn

Sextile Venus and conjunct Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

This has had a big focus for 2020, and now you get some beneficial energy for doing something with the massive transformations and rewards for lessons learned.

Aquarius

Square Venus and semisextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

With effort, there can be positive opportunities, but laziness or stubbornness likely needs to be worked through otherwise they can be squandered.

Pisces

Trine Venus and sextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto.

This is excellent energy for you and others can be helpful as you put in the work for opportunities.
