Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “The Moon leaves Aquarius to enter emotional Pisces, and feelings are strongly felt in your love horoscope this month. There’s underlying tension perpetuating love overall for many zodiac signs that stem from Venus and Mars, and no, it’s not you imagining it. It’s really there.”
Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “As lively Mercury in its retro phase aligns with delectable Venus we may get talking with someone we haven’t seen in a while. The upshot could be that we find we now have more in common than ever which could inspire us to meet up more often.”
Astrologer Lynn Hayes of Astrodynamics examines the meaning of the Aquarius stellium with six planetary bodies in one sign and Venus conjunct Mercury. Hayes writes: “Today the Aquarius stellium continues, with a conjunction of Mercury (the mind) to Venus (relating) that helps to open a window into greater awareness and connection…Today, with Venus conjunct Mercury retrograde, there is an opportunity to review our relationships through new eyes and a more rational perspective.”
