Although your ability to clearly communicate your thoughts and needs may be a little off this week, there is plenty of hope for your love life. Think of it as “if you forget the lyrics, just hum along with the melody.”
First: let’s get that communication issue cleared up. You may have noticed that for some time now, an awful lot of people out there have been a little delusional, and a little too quick to salute the right ideas (not you of course, Dear Reader… everyone else). That’s because of the long, slow Jupiter-Neptune square. Mercury interacts with that already-confusing mess this week. Mercury square Neptune is exact on Wednesday, and it’s hard to imagine the usual brightness of Mercury in Gemini handling the hypnotic power of Neptune in Pisces. The next day, Mercury opposite Jupiter isn’t helping any. Imagine a confused and unsettled Mercury imbued with a sudden urge to shout its opinions (and its spelling errors).
The words may not be coming together properly, but there is plenty of hope that the love and affection signals will get through anyway. While Mercury is taking a hit from Neptune on Wednesday, Venus sextile Neptune will become exact the next day. This aspect can take the edge off of almost any difficult situation, and for once there’s a chance that sweetness and light can overcome the difficulties people make for each other. This could be a good time to extend a peace offering to someone you’re feuding with.
Many of you by now are aware of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction happening in Capricorn, and the heavy, grinding effect that it has had on a lot of us. This isn’t the sort of thing that can be easily fixed by a relatively “lightweight” transit from Venus — but nonetheless, this week Venus will be lending a much-needed helping hand. Venus trine Saturn is exact on Friday, and Venus trine Pluto is exact on Sunday. If you’ve been struggling in some area of your life the last couple of years, Venus trine Saturn will help you apply the gentle touch needed to get something resembling lasting results. Venus trine Pluto can likewise help you confront difficult circumstances with both kindness and strength.
But: suppose that the Saturn-Pluto conjunction hasn’t been making trouble for you? Well then, this week’s news just went from “good” to “excellent”! This week could provide some fantastic opportunities for love and romance. Venus in Taurus is already custom-made for that, but when combined with the powerful stabilizing power of Saturn and the added punch of Pluto? That’s a recipe for Love Life Excellence. Why not give it a try…?
