Mercury conjunct Venus Rx in Scorpio (8 deg)
When Mercury unites with Venus in Scorpio, words are sweet and intense. Information is lucrative and research can uncover something deeply beneficial. Getting back in touch, or revisiting the issues, can tap into a pool of love, pleasure and resources.
Ask again and see what happens.
By itself, this energy brings purely positive developments. But there are a couple of extras.
Venus is Rx, which means what you’re discussing/learning may be a revision of what came before. There’s much more to uncover. Relationships, values and finances will offer up what was previously obscured.
Mercury has already squared BML and Venus Rx will do the same on October 17th. While there’s positive potential here, you can’t ignore the tension arising from an awareness of what’s outcast or unacceptable. This is not just about pretty words - what you’re currently discovering (the deeper layer) is being thrown into sharp relief by an outside agitation.
What taboos need to be confronted? What truths are emerging about challenging, rebellious and possibly ugly events? Positive can exist alongside frightening or uncomfortable. Don’t ignore the full scope of this contrast. I still see this as beneficial, but you have to look at the entire picture that’s emerging.
As a reminder, Black Moon Lilith is about the outcast woman, made more powerful because of her outsider status. She refuses to submit, and in Aquarius, she is truly the social rebel. BML represents women’s sexual power and the sides of a woman that many people do not want to accept (the witch, the mistress, the prostitute, the female demon, the sexual woman who is judged for being sexual, the truth-teller).
