Mercury and Venus are aligning in the sky and over the next week or so they will be beaming a beautifully bright light from the western sky, appearing as the brightest “star” visible in the heavens. Normally Mercury moves a little more quickly than Venus but at the moment Mercury is slowing down in preparation for its retrograde turn on the 17th so the two planets will be within three degrees of each other until around April 11th.
Astrologically, Mercury (the mind) and Venus (relating) are both in the sign of Taurus which is ruled by Venus, so the influence Venus is particularly strong there. Anything having to do with communication between individuals such as negotiations or detailed planning sessions are favorable under this influence. It is easier now to express your viewpoints and have them be clearly understood, and this influence is also favorable for financial matters.
