Venus provides a boost for love, music and art this week which may prove a soothing antidote to recent events. Tomorrow will be perfect if you want to surprise someone, or a whole lot of people, with the Sun conjunct Uranus. The rest of the week aspects to Venus dominate: Venus trines Jupiter on Thursday 8th which favours social celebrations. It’s also the day that Mercury stands still again before moving forward again, so wait until this latter part of the week to press ahead with important communications. On Friday 9th Venus trines Saturn, so commitments and personal contracts could bring progress in relationships. The Sun squares Jupiter that day too, so watch those over-zealous Sagittarians – they are well meaning, but…a bit over the top. Venus sextiles Neptune on Saturday 10th, which is an exquisite aspect for music, art and the expression of compassion. Hope this Venusian week provides a therapeutic lift in collective morale.
