Venus Inconjunct Neptune and Mercury’s Shadow Phase

“And would it have been worth it, after all,
Would it have been worthwhile,
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor-
And this, and so much more?
It’s impossible to say just what I mean! “TS Eliot

“I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think they will sing for me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back.
While the wind blows the water white and black.” TS Eliot

Venus in Leo is inconjuct Neptune in Pisces this week. Whenever there is an inconjunct aspect it’s wise to see if perspective needs to be adjusted. It’s wise under this influence to make sure pragmatics are part of the picture.

In an individual chart this aspect  lends significant creative abilities, idealism and makes the individual capable of great sacrifice. On the romantic front it is muse – like indicating an  unattainable or unrequited situation in love. Or a situation where the partner is idealized from a distance. On the downside it is prone to addiction – often due to disillusionment or a derailed spiritual journey.

It is a dream-like,  unearthly influence.

Also Mercury is in its shadow phase now – meaning the retrograde energy is in effect. Best to anticipate and be patient  with snafus in travel and communications of all types.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”The dawn of a new day reveals everything changed.’
