Venus Square Jupiter
When Venus squares Jupiter, life goes out of whack for a while -- especially with things like relationships, assets & pleasure. Strange combination, hmm? Well, Venus represents the things you love, the things you value. Jupiter squares show exaggeration & ... ok, hypocrisy. You don't handle things honestly. You feel kind of lazy. Self-indulgence creeps in ... &, well, you know how it goes.
When Venus squares Jupiter, you binge on things you really like -- & avoid what you don't unless it's some screaming life-&-death situation. You defer. You procrastinate. You dawdle. You find things that just fill in the time until you can't walk away & "leave it 'til tomorrow" with a fairly clear conscience.

Venus Trine Pluto
Venus trine Pluto accompanies a time of deep, intense emotions. You feel things more. The things important to you matter more. It may feel like you're getting more attached -- or learning to give these things (& people) a larger role in your life. It's a time when the people in your relationships, the way you use assets & the things that give you pleasure confront the way your life has permanently changed.
In difficult aspects, this meeting between your people / your possessions / your enjoyments -- & the different person you've become ... causes problems. But trines are easy. Trines are fun. Chances are this meeting happens & people find they like what you've become. There are good reasons why the attachment deepens. It's built on truth, not fantasy & not role-playing. Love prospers in such honesty.
Gemini -- the sign of the twins

Mercury in Gemini
Sooo ... Mercury in Gemini. The wandering magician, the roaming reporter, the neighborhood gossip has come home again. Back for a quick snack, a hot shower, maybe an even quicker nap before he straps his shoes back on & is off again. He never stays long, but this year he'll do his retrograde number before he crosses the border into Cancer -- so we get some extra weeks of Mercury in Gemini unplugged!!
Mercury in Gemini is everything you'd expect from your everyday intellectual. He's quick-witted -- & a quick study when he runs across some topic or technique he doesn't know much about. He's smooth & smart & often surprisingly polished in the way he talks & presents himself. He's good at handling information & getting his point across in an argument, regardless of how much formal education he put up with.

Mercury Trine Pluto
Mercury trine Pluto comes along when you need some break-through ideas to solve a problem (or two) that has so far resisted any final settlement. You can look deeply into a knotty situation, suss out the underlying tangle of causes & links & see ways to dissect the bindings. Mercury trine Pluto gives a very penetrating power to the focused mind & in its presence secrets dissolve & mysteries yield up answers.
This energy also has interesting applications when dealing with people -- who can be some of the most baffling mysteries of all. It's good for persuading people to do things you want done -- or for selling your views & agenda. You can talk people into coming around to your point of view, without the resistance & atmosphere of bullying that can pollute other Mercury / Pluto contacts. Your instincts are good -- & that's what counts.

Sun Conjunct Uranus
The Sun conjunct Uranus accompanies a rebellious, uncooperative, cantankerous, defiant mood that tests relationships & makes routine "business as usual" nearly impossible. You just have no patience with anything that doesn't suit you -- & certainly things that involve your own preferences, habits, time management, etc. You want control over at least this much of your life -- & possibly a whole lot more.
The Sun conjunct Uranus puts you in a very "my way or the highway" place, not necessarily regarding your partners & other close associated, but certainly regarding yourself. You're less apt to kick someone out of your life than you are to pack your own bags & leave for a while -- to clear your head / to see some new scenery / to get a sufficient taste of "more freedom" / to figure out ... where to go from here.

Sun Conjunct Uranus
As the Sun moves along in its annual journey through the Zodiac, it makes conjunctions with all the Karmic planets -- Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. It also conjuncts the Moon every month, moving forward through the Zodiac signs. This is what we call the New Moon. It also conjuncts Mercury & Venus, but on an irregular schedule. It conjuncts Mars every 2 years.
These conjunctions unite the energies of the Sun -- self-image / self-esteem / self-confidence / personal ambition / your essential spiritual being with the energies & interests of the other planet. Here we're talking about Uranus -- the inspirational genius / freedom-lover / source of authentic originality / the rebellious "I'mma gonna do things MY WAY" energy in the array of celestial citizens.
