Just a head’s up that we have a mutual reception in play until October  14th – Mercury & Venus are currently playing the role of exchange students by occupying each other’s home signs!  Mercury and Venus mix and mingle their energies; playing off each other for a total period of about 3 weeks – a period that began on September 29th when Mercury entered Libra.   Here are some highlighted themes you may notice in play as a result of this combo:

The Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception: (Floral) Scents On The Breeze

One thing that has really stood out to me regarding the current mutual reception between Mercury in Taurus and Venus in Gemini has been all the changeable, sweet scents permeating the air during the last few weeks – I cannot remember the last time the air was *this* fragrant! First it was the perfume of lilacs. Then it was the fragrance of wild honeysuckle, which was absolutely DIVINE! This was promptly followed the other week by the aroma generated by the profusion of multi-hued roadside phlox that were suddenly in bloom. Now the dominant note seems to have shifted to the abundant clusters of feral roses that populate the landscape in these parts. My daily runs around the neighborhood (which serve as a sort of moving meditation for me) have certainly been made a lot more pleasant due this influence, that’s for sure! This mutual reception finally draws to a close on Sunday, though, and I’ll definitely miss it when it goes.  ❤

So, have you noticed any sweet, floral scents on the breeze lately?

Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception: People Say The Nicest Things

June's Mercury/Venus mutual reception: Mercury in Taurus, Venus in Gemini!

June’s Mercury/Venus mutual reception: Mercury in Taurus, Venus in Gemini!

It sure is lovely to have this mutual reception between Venus in Gemini & Mercury in Taurus helping to smooth some of the edges off the Mutable Madness generated by the current Saturn/Neptune/Jupiter T-Square. It’s amazing what a kind word can do; how it can light someone up and leave them positively glowing. Sure there is the potential for flattery or mere sweet talk, but as we approach Saturday’s Gemini New Moon (which is blessed by Venus), never underestimate the power of a heartfelt sweet, loving, complimentary, or appreciative word – the world needs it now.  ❤ ❤

Repost: Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception

NB: The following is an updated repost that is valid for the next 2 1/2 weeks while this energy plays out!

Material Girl Venus has just entered Gemini while Mercury remains in Taurus (sign of moo-lah) until June 12th, and this means we have a mutual reception between Mercury and Venus in effect until then! This pairing puts our minds on our money and our money on our minds, to riff on a lyric from urban poet laureate Snoop Dogg, LOL. Tap this mojo to generate ideas for revenue, and definitely use your Gift of Gab to get commercial transactions flowing. Be polite, polished, and affable in all conversations because the easier you are to talk to, the easier it will be to ask for (and be granted) favors. For some this energy could correlate to joining with a co-worker, sibling, or other relation for the purposes of commerce – even for those that don’t, know that partnering up with someone to bounce your thoughts off one another may prove particularly fruitful/lucrative now. Also, if you have to engage in diplomatic negotiations of any kind, generally speaking this is going to be the astrology to do it under because the chances of everyone being able to reach an accord are higher than normal.

The Mercury and Venus-ruled signs – Gemini, Virgo, Taurus, & Libra – capitalize on this vibe most, but ANYONE can use it to their advantage. Raising our consciousness and being aware these energies are, in fact, out there for us all to access and doing our best to embody this energy in positive ways is all that is required to help the more desirable manifestations along. Along this vein, the main pitfalls to watch out for with this mutual reception may involve a tendency to be a bit too agreeable to the point that it can veer into “yes-man/woman” territory and mental laziness. While this is a light and sociable pairing, the tendency may be to seek social distractions so the intellect doesn’t have to work too hard – allowing mental inertia to take over potentially squanders the more tangible benefits this pairing has to offer us. Also, this energy does like to talk but instead of chatting aimlessly about superficialities, dialog should instead serve as a vehicle for true connectedness and bonding – try using this mojo to tell someone you value/appreciate/like/love them, for example.

The Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception

 
Mercury has entered Taurus (sign of moo-lah) tonight while Material Girl Venus floats through Gemini, and you know what this means…! Yes, we have a mutual reception between Mercury and Venus in effect for a good 2+ weeks! This pairing puts our minds on our money and our money on our minds, to riff on a lyric from urban poet laureate Snoop Dogg, LOL. Tap this mojo to generate ideas for revenue, and definitely use your Gift of Gab to get commercial transactions flowing. Be polite, polished, and affable in all conversations, because the easier you are to talk to, the easier it will be to ask for (and be granted) favors. For some, this energy could correlate to joining with a co-worker, sibling, or other relation for the purposes of commerce – even for those that don’t, know that partnering up with someone to bounce your thoughts off one another may prove particularly fruitful/lucrative now. Also, if you have to engage in diplomatic negotiations of any kind, this is the astrology to do it under because the chances of everyone being able to reach an accord are higher than normal.

The Mercury and Venus-ruled signs – Gemini, Virgo, Taurus, & Libra – capitalize on this vibe most, but ANYONE can use it to their advantage by seeking out avenues that allow for conscious manifestation of any of these desirable traits. Raising our consciousness and being aware these energies are, in fact, out there for us all to access is all that’s required for to resonate with them. Along this vein, the main pitfalls to watch out for with this mutual reception may involve a tendency to be a bit too agreeable to the point that it veers into “yes-man/woman” territory, and mental laziness. While this is a light and sociable pairing, the tendency may be to seek social distractions so the intellect doesn’t have to work too hard – allowing mental inertia to take over potentially squanders the more tangible benefits this pairing has to offer us.

September’s Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception

September's Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception:  Mercury will be in Libra; Venus in Virgo.

September’s Mercury/Venus Mutual Reception: Mercury will be in Libra; Venus in Virgo.

Hey, peeps! Just a head’s up that we have another mutual reception coming into play between September 5th – 27th, when Mercury and Venus decide to play the role of exchange students by occupying one another’s home signs! Yes, Mercury & Venus will be mixing & mingling their energies and playing off each other for a period of about 3 weeks during September, so although this one is shorter in duration, its effects will still be palpable. Here are some highlighted themes you may notice in play this month as a result of this combination:

Discrimination in our choice of partners; health matters involving a significant other or biz partner; watching our sugar intake in our diets; talking about marriage; sibling relationships; diplomatic conversations; relations w/ co-workers/employees; discussion that involves fair give-and-take; kidney health; finding love on the job; tactful choice of words; love at the gym; criticism from a spouse/S.O.; looking at relationship routines; the girl next door; a balanced diet; relationships with neighbors; intestinal balance; analyzing how we earn/spend money & assessing financial health; a job we love; relationship health; lazy co-workers/employees; discriminating taste; making money with our hands or communication abilities; marriage-minded; relationship news; getting agreements in writing; a love of cleanliness & organization; helpful & pleasant; money in service trades; talking things out in relationships.

A caveat is due on that last one between the 8th-13th, however, when Mercury tangles with Pluto & Uranus. If a conversation is initiated at this time it may be a hard one and/or may not resolve agreeably with everyone in accord. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have those conversations if you absolutely have to; it just means go into these talks prepared to utilize a good deal of verbal finesse and/or prep yourself for the possibility that when all is said & done you still may not wind up seeing things eye-to-eye. And don’t take for granted the skill of maintaining poise & politeness even if something is said that throws you off balance – think of how to regain equilibrium if this should happen.
