Venus/Jupiter: Big Love
Venus in Leo squares Jupiter Rx in Scorpio on June 25th, bringing extravagant expressions of love, big spending and big indulgences. Venus in Leo wants attention and loves the shine of what’s joyous and playful. Jupiter will increase these tendencies, but the tension of the square suggests that more may not be enough. Expectations can grow beyond what’s feasible, resulting in cravings that go over the top. Enjoy what’s on offer, but keep an eye on your limits.
Mars in Aquarius stations Rx on June 26th. From a previous post:
“…Mars Rx in Aquarius intensifies specific actions so the move towards independence can happen (sometimes it takes extra effort to break away from the past). Or, Mars Rx can delay actions/progress if the impulse is poorly timed. Delays or intensification will depend on how Mars aspects your chart. Mars Rx means progress is put on hold, either way. You have to wait or redo. Progress happens when Mars stations direct.
In general, Mars in Aquarius is tense, rebellious and stubborn (Aquarius is a Fixed sign). Compromise is non-existent - it must happen, and it must happen your way or their way, no matter what. “
Mars will station direct on August 27th, so consider the time between now and then as a time to rework, pause or try harder on an existing issue.
