Doesn’t a year under the influence of Venus sound like a welcome change from the struggles of 2012? I’m more than ready to ring in 2013.
2012 won’t go down in history as an especially good year. It was a 5 year and 5 years can present many challenges. Have you heard anyone say, “Wow! This has been a great year!” Me, either.
Numbers are interesting to me because they bring out some astrological qualities. Sometimes it’s a planet, but sometimes it feels more like a sign…or a planet in a sign.
The 6 is assigned to Venus and carries the coveted Venusian qualities of love and artistic ability. To that is added the quality of responsibility. Family is also a prime concern of the number 6. We can boil all those qualities down to responsible familial love. Starts to sound a bit like Cancer, right? Or Venus in Cancer.
But the 6 also represents romantic love. And weddings. We’re reminded of the sixth month, June, and it’s association with weddings. We might also think of card #6, The Tarot Lovers, another symbol of romantic love and marriage. All that reminds us of Libra.
Exchanging the stress of a number 5 year for the gentler 6 energy is definitely encouraging. I can look forward to a year that’s more affectionate, hospitable, and sympathetic.
There are some drawbacks, though ~ bossiness, being a bit on the nosey side, maybe a little too much gossip in the air. We don’t need those.
I have to remind myself to focus on the positive and keep my intentions clear.
My wish for you is that you experience the very best of the 6 in the coming year and that it brings you many lovely memories.
