Mars Square Neptune
Mars square Neptune likely finds you exhausted, bone-weary, brain-fogged, confused, paranoid, & discouraged. If that sounds dismal, it sure can be. You're probably not thinking straight. You're not dealing with objective reality. You may be trying to conceal something that feels touchy or dangerous for some reason -- & you easily project this same sneaky behavior onto others.
Mars is action, passion, physical energy & the ability to arrange life's circumstances so they better suit you. Neptune is imagination, intuition, subconscious impulses -- & lots of other hidden stuff. Mars stressed can be volatile, pushy, unnecessarily belligerent ... or depleted, unmotivated & consumed by hidden anger & resentments. Neptune stressed is suspicious, fragile, devious, underhanded & indirect.

Sun Conjunct Venus
No matter what sign holds a Sun / Venus conjunction, both planets gain from the partnership. Each shares the qualities of the other. Venus gains the self-confidence, dignity & showmanship of the Sun, while the Sun gains the grace, diplomacy & aesthetic sense of Venus. In fact, this conjunction brings more "Venus" to the Sun than even having the Sun in a Venus-ruled sign. And here Venus acts a lot like Venus in Leo.
This mix brings the strengths of both Libra & Taurus & blesses the Sun with the whole treasure chest. It creates one of the most attractive partnerships of all. There are all the practical benefits you'd expect -- & all the problems. Sun conjunct Venus is a time when your relationships become more important. You want to feel connected to your partners, so you pay extra attention to your people.

Sun Sextile Neptune
Sun sextile Neptune is a quiet, subtle, unobtrusive energy that shows more about the inner world & influences in you than it is a forecast of outside events. You want a more spiritual, mystical, creative, meaningful dimension to life. You feel this -- & are looking for it. Thoughts, synchronicities, passing experiences all point to this with messages that can be very personal -- but are also very real.
The basic theme of the time tells you "there's more to the story," more depth, more wisdom, more "stuff" to mine than you see on the surface. And your curiosity prompts you to find it -- mostly by turning inward & listening to the voices that live there. You're apt to spend more time in fantasy, dreaming, meditation, visual conjuring, journeying & prayer. This is the inner work that creates outer results ... so, just do it.

Venus sextile Neptune
Venus sextile Neptune combines your compassion & spirituality to bring out the generous, caring, sensitive side of your character. This mix affects the way you manage your relationships, the way you treat partners (& people in general), & the way you choose to manage your $$$ so that "the better angels of your nature" have a say in what you create.
This energy sharpens your physical senses & adds support from your intuition to create a more dimensional experience of reality. It even adds a dash of fantasy with your imagination -- one of Neptune's properties -- brought into play. It can be especially helpful to your relationships, promoting harmony & happiness in the way you engage with partners.

Mercury in Aquarius
When you put Uranus energy into the mix of pretty much any raw materials, anything can happen -- & frequently does. Uranus is the energy of sudden events, accidents, explosions, creative genius & "the unexpected." Uranus is the planetary ruler of Aquarius -- the cutting edge version of intellectual exploits ... on-earth expressions of The Higher Mind. So you see where this is going. Let's call it "mind without limits."
This combination really does think differently from the rest of us. In fact, it's famous for it. It likes to connect random dots / "try something novel" / experiment with a little of this, a little of that, some of the other ... & see what it comes up with. It may not be useful, but it will be novel. Sometimes for Mercury in Aquarius, that's the point. That's enough. Something that never yet saw daylight -- exists. Mission accomplished.

Sun Trine Uranus
The Sun trine Uranus brings an unusual energy, made more notable because Uranus is so notoriously unpredictable. Expect events & experiences to push you well outside your comfort zone -- & your response to this will both shape & define the result. It can also introduce you to different -- & in some cases really different people ...which can be delightful or distressing if you know what I mean.
There will be invitations to widen your social & professional network, team up with exceptional colleagues & learn from people who have either "done this before" or who are especially adept at learning it now. They can help you through the curves & serious dips that are almost sure to be part of the journey. These aren't connections that are meant to last, but they can be very educational while they do.
