Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune Rx in Pisces (9 degrees) on October 25th. Venus in Sag loves exploring, and Neptune dissolves limits. This aspect inflates financial/emotional expectations to the point where you want it all, based on a glimpse of magic. What you see may be so beautiful/romantic/hopeful. A square is active, because it creates tension that must be resolved. Mix in Venus/Neptune, and you get an active yearning that dislocates you from reality, as you reach for a divine that does not exist.
Take a step back, but don't give up. Venus is also building to a sextile with Jupiter in Libra (at 10 degrees) exact on October 26th. The positive resonance between Jupiter-ruled Sag and Venus-ruled Libra strengthens the weak sextile. The harmony of this aspect tells us there is something to work with - what you want (Venus) connects with faith (Jupiter) that's not misplaced. The pull you feel towards something is not totally misguided - the connection between you and another can expand, the opportunity can grow. After the rush of fantasy, allow yourself to settle back to earth and enjoy a situation that's less dreamy, but more balanced. Adjust your perspective, and you can reap the benefits.
Mercury in Scorpio squares Vesta in Leo (1 degree) on October 25th. Vesta's focus on a shiny potential is stressed by Mercury's awareness of the Shadow. When challenged by a hard aspect (especially to a planet in Scorpio) Vesta's devotion to approval/creation/recognition/romance can become blinkered and fanatical. The contrast between light and shadow makes the dark thicker, and the longed-for shine that much brighter. Alternatively, focus on one area can undermine the other - ignoring what's beneath the shine, or getting sucked into depressing thoughts of why you'll never succeed. Check your focus. Are you certain that ____ must happen? Or, are you certain it will never happen? Mercury in Scorpio whispers the shadow truth, and it is different from what lies on the surface.
This situation may have started on October 23rd, when the Sun in Scorpio squared Vesta. That was the intro. Mercury/Vesta will make it specific. This is what you're fixated on. Here are the thoughts or conversation that put the Shadow into words.
