Communication, along with relationships/money/personal values, will be focused on creative possibility or personal recognition. This is a “notice me” energy, and there’s a desire for fun, celebration and pure romance. Venus and Mercury in Leo get you looking at what or who makes you feel special. When they conjoin, watch for a specific message/key person to draw your attention to what’s brighter or better.

Venus and Mercury in your sector of self-expression can spark a flirtation or artistic inspiration. Your charm and creativity are dialled up to high, and your words provide the perfect delivery system for increased confidence. Excellent for impressing others with what you have to say, or indulging in playful discussions. Mercury/Venus can also help you manifest a dream or background potential, if you use the facts that are in front of you.
While things heat up on the outside, the Grand Water Trine keeps background developments moving smoothly. Domestic finances, intimacy or soothing resolutions of past wounds can progress favourably. Aspects to Uranus in your sign can trigger unexpected realizations, or surprising spurts of temper.
Venus and Mercury in your domestic sector can sweeten domestic relationships (romantic or family). Watch for affectionate discussions, open declarations of love and an overall generous mood. Also good for home businesses and creative ideas about feathering your nest or growing your family. For some, there may be an opportunity to check out an appealing new home.
The Grand Water Trine adds more emotional fuel to relationship progress. Discussions unfold smoothly, and future plans can move forward. Your ability to compromise and maintain awareness of how your actions impact others, is key. Alternatively, if it feels like your partner is taking all the initiative, you still have a say. However, aspects to Uranus can trigger unexpected disagreements, or a surprising left turn from your partner - count to ten before you react.
Venus and Mercury in your communication sector gift you with some shiny tools. You’re already a master communicator, and now you’ve got an extra helping of sugar, sparkle and fire. Confidence in what you’re saying/thinking is key, as well as the ability to spin your story in the most appealing way possible. Fantastic for selling, negotiating, romantic contacts or launching a new idea. Mercury/Venus also tune you into what’s most precious and relevant in your personal life.
The Grand Water Trine continues to move work matters in the right direction. Your daily actions and attention to details/improvements will boost your financial security/self-esteem, and can improve things with management. Venus/Mercury give your words the pretty shine, but in order to be effective, make sure you back them up with disciplined action and correct motivation. Aspects to Uranus can stir up brief disruptions in your work day, tension with co-workers, or the risk of accidents. Stay alert, and be prepared to shift your routine if necessary.
Venus/Mercury in your sector of personal resources help you zero in on the most lucrative financial or emotional opportunities. You’ve got the smarts and sharpened instincts for buying and selling, or verbalizing your personal values. Excellent for salary negotiations, or catching wind of new financial opportunities. If there’s a writing project to develop or key discussion to have, now’s the time.
The Grand Water Trine activates the Sun in your sign. Your confidence and motivation to go after what you want will be fuelled by this energy. New romance, creative work, children/pregnancy or celebrations are all favoured. Keep moving forward, assert yourself, and develop the personal goal that fuels your passion. Having said this, know that Mercury and the Sun in your sign will square Uranus, so be prepared for a sudden change in plans, moment of clarity, or disruption on the job front. Mars/Uranus can deliver a surge of ambition and impatience to get what you want, but measure your actions carefully. It’s possible to take an unwise risk.
Mercury and Venus in your sign urge you to reach out and connect. It’s prime time to interact with others, whether you’re looking for love, friendship or career connections. Your appeal is high, and you’ve got an eye for the best prospects. These energies boost your chances of making a good first impression, while also attracting those who can improve your financial and emotional security. Also good for public speaking and performance.
The Grand Water Trine continues to insist there’s progress in a domestic or family situation. Relocation, home renovations, home finances or a domestic relationship may not be picture perfect, but your efforts to move on from the past can have a significant impact. Aspects to Uranus can trigger a few revelations, and there is also a risk of accidents or breakdowns around the home. Simmering issues could hit you when least expected. Don’t ignore suspected difficulties.
Mercury/Venus in your hidden sector can spark a delicious secret, or trigger a new potential that you’re not ready to reveal just yet. It’s early days yet, so don’t be in a rush to push for all the answers. Allow things to unfold, and enjoy the growing sense of potential. Too, these influences can focus you on spiritual matters, dream work or a private goal that is precious only to you. As ruler of the North Node in your sign, Mercury can point you in the direction that favours growth, progress or your next, smartest step. It’s all about using your natural talents (analysis, improvement, focus) to the max.
The Grand Water Trine keeps you on the ball regarding communication (with friends, clients, and partners). You’re assertive, but willing to follow the current of events. Simply making your thoughts known may be all it takes to trigger the receptivity or understanding of others. Now is the time to have that difficult conversation, or make that announcement you’re not sure about. However, aspects to Uranus urge a smidgen of caution and thoughtfulness when reacting to issues (especially public issues) that stir your emotions. When speaking out, keep your anger in check.
Mercury/Venus in your social sector boost your public appeal and chances of meeting someone intriguing. But whether it’s romantic or platonic, all social contacts are favoured. These energies give you the ability to zero in on who might unlock the next level of a private goal or wish. Public events, public launches and networking also look good.
The Grand Water Trine suggests your actions are aligned with professional opportunity: job searches, relationships with those in authority, financial growth and professional ambition continue to receive positive fuel. Efforts should be targeted towards support of your personal values, security and earning potential. Aspects to Uranus can throw a curve ball from partners, or those in authority. Too, there may be an unexpected expense or jolt to your income stream. Don’t panic- a steady response is your best bet.
Mercury/Venus in your career sector add some shine to your professional image and relationships with management. Fantastic for job searches/interviews, a business launch, or aligning yourself with strategic people. Don’t hesitate to reach out and make new professional contacts, because a seemingly inconsequential meeting or discussion could open up something much greater.
The Grand Water Trine, activating Mars in your sign, fuels your energy and desire to explore. A long time goal, ideal or journey could be within reach. Too, you may feel a sense of energized calm as your actions align nicely with future potentials. If you haven’t already, make your move, take the initiative, and just do it. Aspects to Uranus, including the inconjunct from Mars in your sign, can trigger moments of impatience or anxiety. Things may not be happening quickly enough, or changes in routine may demand your immediate response. Be prepared to shift your focus or adjust your efforts, but avoid the temptation to overreact or strike out.
Mercury/Venus in your sector of opportunities hi-light long distance romance, exploration, travel, education, legal matters or publishing. These areas can deliver a positive message or intriguing development, while urging you to check out someone/something completely new. There’s a bit of adventure associated with this, and a chance to learn about something that opens your eyes. Widening your scope can alsohave benefits for career and future goals.
The Grand Water Trine continues to develop background issues, but just because you can’t see the results doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Your actions may appear to be slow, ineffective or unclear, but know that what’s on the back burner is coming to a boil. Once Mars enters your sign on August 2nd, you’ll see results, or feel like the gates have finally been opened. Aspects to Uranus can make it tempting to risk more than you have, go overboard or take extreme actions to get a desired result. Know that the impact from your actions will be volatile and unexpected: take a step back and consider what’s at stake.
Mercury/Venus in your sector of shared resources suggest beneficial developments involving debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, or physical/emotional intimacy. Discussions will be intense, but may reveal something sweet, hopeful or lucrative. You’ll also be more aware of your financial and emotional worth, and what you want to get in return. This is all part of the process of furthering your reach, your vision and your journey (literal or metaphorical).
The Grand Water Trine keeps connections with others (friends and partners) humming along, with a nice flow of mutual understanding and progress. Your social/public actions continue to line up with what others want, or are wiling to consider. You can make significant headway where apologies are required. Aspects to Uranus can stir up some tricky moments with partners or friends, as others catch you off guard or disrupt your plans.
Mercury/Venus in your relationship sector can present a new attraction or romantic introduction/message. You’re more open and willing to consider what someone else has to offer, and all one on one conversations (romantic or business) have positive potential. While it may seem like you’re just enjoying the give and take with someone, know that this is also part of your deeper journey towards increased trust.
The Grand Water Trine keeps you busy with work, but there should also be positive momentum towards your future. Whether you’re employed, looking for work, or pondering your options, your actions/ambitions will take you where you’re going. Meaning, you have the power to drive yourself in any direction you want. Do you want to stay where you are, or change things up? It may feel easy to go with the flow, but consider if your efforts are being appreciated. Aspects to Uranus can stir up surprising arguments, blunt statements, or truths. Career discussions or issues with management can trigger some unpleasant realizations.
Mercury/Venus in your sector of routine can brighten things up regarding co-worker relationships, health issues, work tasks or obligations. It should be easier to get the help/solutions you need, and a particular improvement/correction could make a world of difference. Your energy level and sense of optimism should increase as well. Watch for increasing awareness of what your efforts are worth to others: balanced cooperation can be enhanced if you zero in on areas that benefit you and someone else.
The Grand Water Trine, activating Chiron Rx in your sign, helps you gently push the boundaries and consider new possibilities. What seemed out of reach or even impossible a month ago can now be within your grasp. But the key is your willingness to work through a doubt, worry or area where you feel less capable/deserving than others. Too, something involving travel, education, legal matters or publishing may be just what you need for a well- deserved reward. Aspects to Uranus can push you to take an unexpected, risk, financially or emotionally. It’s ok to go further than you have in the past, but think twice before you put it all on the line (hold something back in reserve, just in case). Use caution when travelling (have a Plan B).
