Venus (love, money, values) in Gemini gets hit by a confusing square from Neptune in Pisces (May 12th to 13th). When Mercury (communication) enters Gemini (on May 15th) it will be hit by the same square (May 15th to 18th). Gemini is the sign of duality, multiple choices and new information. New developments will be plentiful, but unclear. This energy is best for exploring creative possibilities and remaining open to what others have to offer. But it's not great for final decisions, commitments or signing on the dotted line. Expect more to be revealed regarding anything you learn this week.
As Venus and Mercury advance into your communication sector, they'll be muddled by a confusing square from Neptune (in your sector of secrets). Intriguing ideas, invitations, promises and conversations should not be taken at face value. What you hear will have an underlying meaning (or will not mean what you're hoping it will). And the same goes for what you're saying; unacknowledged impulses/desires will have a strong pull on your words, so think carefully before you speak or send that email. On the positive side, this energy is fantastic for creative inspiration and romantic/sensitive words. If you need to express something with a bit more magic than usual, now's your chance.
Venus (your ruler) and Mercury are drawing your attention to security/financial issues. But the square from Neptune will make you question what you want, or what your next step is. Are you satisfied with what you have? You may not even know this week, and that's ok. Play with the options and allow yourself to consider a few "what ifs." This is an excellent influence for exploring new ideas/possibilities about what might satisfy you (regarding a pay increase, additional income sources or relationship issues), but a very poor influence for final decisions.
Venus and Mercury (your ruler) in your sign are bringing you new ideas, attractions and opportunities. But Neptune's influence (in your career sector) could throw you off course. It's a good time to seek inspiration; imagine where you can go next. But future goals or plans/promises from management may be misguided this week, so (if possible) hold off on setting things in motion. Collect ideas, but wait to see how career developments will unfold. Be especially careful with work projects/details; it will be easy to overlook something important, and the oversight will cast a negative light on your reputation.
Venus and Mercury enter your sector of secrets, stirring up overlooked/under-appreciated/forgotten ideas. Should you? Could you? The square from Neptune (in your sector of opportunities) will nudge you forward with a tempting "Why not?" If you're looking to open some creative/artistic doors (or overcome writer's block) this is the influence for you. But definite plans involving education, travel or long-distance romance should not be cemented, just yet. There is so much more for you to learn about a particular issue; you're only working with half the information. Stay open, and wait for the truth to come out.
Venus and Mercury in your sector of groups could introduce a new friend, associate romantic interest or flirtation. Key people will enter your life, but their intentions could be unclear, especially as the square from Neptune stirs up your fears/paranoia/desires. A particular person is significant, but not for the reasons you first think. Check all assumptions at the door and remain watchful. Alternatively, your financial entanglements (involving debts, taxes, loans or your partner's finances) could temporarily push your big dreams off course. Take a step back (downsize, if you need to) and re-do the numbers. There's still room to move, you'll just have to adjust your expectations.
Venus and Mercury (your ruler) in your career sector are increasing your chances to shine, reach out to those in authority or step up your career game. But the square from Neptune (in your partnership sector) could see you doubting/questioning yourself, especially when it comes to relationships with others. There's an adjustment needed between what you actually have to offer, and your perception of what you have to offer. Before you draw a conclusion about your future prospects, professional status or impact on others, consider if you might be projecting certain ideals/fears. There's a lot for you to work with, but you need to get clear on your goals, first.
Venus (your ruler) and Mercury energize your sector of opportunities, introducing new/multiple choices in the areas of long distance travel, education, long distance romance or publishing. Key messages/people could bring intriguing news, but the square from Neptune suggests that you may have difficulty seeing how these developments truly fit into your daily life. These opportunities are legitimate, but the challenge will be for you to turn them into something you can actually work with. Health difficulties, low energy/ambition or confusing work schedules can also make it difficult for you to accept new developments. Work on addressing issues in your immediate environment before you broaden your horizons.
As Venus and Mercury enter your sector of shared resources, intimacy or financial issues appear to be on the upswing. However, the square from Neptune can inflate your hopes, or see you expecting more (money, love, attention) then someone is able to give. It's time to dial back the fantasies and look at the facts. If you're not sure what's real and what isn't, focus on what you actually know and refrain from reading between the lines. This is not the best time to sign financial documents or make large investments.
Venus and Mercury in your partnership sector are opening up relationship discussions, agreements and (for single Sagittarians) chances to meet someone new. But Neptune's square can cloud your judgement, as habits/addictions/emotions that are based in the past make things confusing. Ensure you're fully present when talking to your partner (or potential partner) and not following some outdated script. Alternatively, plans involving domestic routines or relocations may be difficult to clarify with your partner (during this influence). Make sure they truly want what you want.
Venus and Mercury can bring multiple, positive developments/information involving health, work routines, co-worker relations or problem solving. The key will be keeping facts and duties clear, as the square from Neptune can introduce miscommunications. Things to watch for include overlooked details, missed phone calls/emails or incorrect diagnoses. Also, there may be a temptation to let "little things" (especially unpleasant duties) slide. These are the issues that will come back to bite you. Focusing will be a challenge, so use your prioritizing skills and tackle what you know you need to take care of.
Venus and Mercury add some sparkle to your sector of creativity and celebrations. Watch for inspiration, multiple flirtations/attractions or opportunities to promote your project/idea. This is the time to get out there and shine, but the square from Neptune suggests some of your motivations may be based on misguided desires. Before you cut loose, make sure you're not chasing after old definitions of security or happiness. If you keep it light (especially when romance is involved) and remember that no one but you is responsible for your wellbeing, you'll be ok. Be especially cautious about drinking or any form of escapism; it will be easy to overdo it.
Neptune in your sign throws a confusing square to Venus and Mercury in your domestic sector. Issues with relocations, home businesses, mortgages or family discussions can be confusing. At the moment, you may not know what you want, or how to make others happy. Alternatively, family members could make multiple, confusing requests. This is the time to explore your options, but not settle on a decision. Allow yourself room to imagine (and even escape for a bit, if you feel the need).
