Venus will join Mercury Rx and the Sun in Taurus Friday. Priorities include survival and self-acceptance issues on very personal levels. Good time for pause and meditation on these core issues for each of us.
Taurus Scorpio themes are very present right now, and with Saturn and Mars transiting Sag/Scorpio, both in balsamic phase to Pluto across the wheel, you can expand the core themes to include Death, Sex and Taxes. More celebrities could be in the news with affairs, money scandals and/or check outs.
Pressure will build due to the confluence of the retrograde planets during this unusually long, 24 day Mercury cycle and the releasing of Mars and Saturn to Pluto the Soul.
