Yesterday’s Venus/Neptune aspect opened the doorways to creativity and imagination, and then today we have Mercury conjunct Venus to lubricate greater flow in our interactions with others. Mercury, in its own sign of Gemini where we are chattier, more curious, and more open minded, is the perfect match for Venus in Gemini which seeks connection through communication. Under this influence which peaks on Saturday morning EDT compromise and adaptation comes more easily and it’s easier to understand the viewpoints of others.
Mercury is stationary in the sky right now as it prepares to turn retrograde, and you may already have noticed some Mercury retrograde effects: Communication confusion, equipment malfunction, lost orders… this conjunction from Mercury to Venus will ease some of that for a day or so but it’s a good idea to be prepared for Mercury retrograde by taking special care with anything having to do with information or communication in an attempt to avoid snafus! And then expect that they will happen anyway. 😃 But meanwhile, the Capricorn Moon helps to stabilize and offers support for planning and defining goals and ideals in preparation for the upcoming Mercury Rx review period.
