Venus and Jupiter are both very beneficial planets, so even the stressful aspects are not too bad.  Today Venus, newly in Virgo, is opposite Jupiter which is at zero degrees Pisces as it retrogrades back into Aquarius.  Venus moving ahead, Jupiter covering old territory.  There is a sense here of an opening which comes at the expense of something which is lost – but in any case, this aspect denotes excess of some kind.  It’s difficult to think about excess when we’re talking about Venus in Virgo, but as Jupiter in Pisces is expanding beyond what we thought possible, Jupiter is attempting to hold back the tide.  Too much of a good thing.

The Sun enters Leo at 10:26 am, shifting the conversation from family and tribe to the Self.  What’s good for ME is what is highlighted later today.  That will make the Venus/Jupiter choices more difficult (because with oppositions there is often a choice).  Venus wants to serve others, but here comes the Sun and shines the light of joy and radiance on us, causing us to forget for just a moment.  Today is a good day to make it a point to find balance between what will make us happy and joyful (Leo Sun) and how to balance the ideal of freedom (Jupiter) with a humbler viewpoint (Venus in Virgo). ❤️
