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?
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. ❤ ❤

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.
