Today there are exact conjunctions between Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus and Neptune in Aquarius.
I don’t usually try and interpret the inner planets in a general way. It seems more the forte of women astrologers. In fact I don’t usually even notice, but Melody’s Facebook entry
today got me thinking. I’m usually more at home trying to tie the outer planets to specific events.
So let’s see what happens. It is quite a striking pair of conjunctions, particularly as they are both drawing in the power of an outer planet.
Western Hermetic sphere work, "42 is the sum of the values of the 'true' spheres, 3,4,5,6,7,8 & 9 each of which represent one aspect of the body of God through which we observe the world."
Non-joking apart, the few days of this conjunction are a time when you can do some serious thinking, particularly if it involves putting a lot of thoughts together into some kind of structure. Lay out a plan for that book you’ve always been meaning to write, or think about starting that course of study you’ve been meaning to undertake.

Of course, a lasting relationship may not be what someone needs right now. They may not know it, and usually don’t, but they may have something to learn by being with the ‘wrong’ person for a while. Or even a long while. It’s a complicated area.
But Neptune and Venus are in a fixed sign and in Aquarius. So this is about enduring relationships, and those that are maybe a bit unlikely. And being Aquarius, it is also about friends.
Neptune and Venus are also the imagination and creativity respectively, and Aquarius is networks of friends, so it’s a good time to write a blog about the meaning of Neptune and Venus in Aquarius. Or any creative activity that connects people.
Pulling Mercury and Venus together, what is powerful about these two is that they are both conjoining an outer planet simultaneously. Outwardly, communication and relating are empowered, something can come through you when you simply communicate what’s on your mind. Inwardly, it is a strong time for contemplation, thinking your life through (Mercury) and re-assessing which are the important bits (Venus.)
