Venus and Mercury Just Might Make You Fall in Love Today

There are some seriously romantic energies at play today, with Venus in Gemini and Mercury in Cancer giving us all the lovey dovey feels. Are you on the cusp of a new relationship? Is an existing one in need of some excitement and connection? You just might be in luck.

The Moon is Sextile Venus at 9:27 AM, and Void Begins

This morning, the moon in fiery Leo forms a sextile with Venus in playful Gemini. When the moon is sextile Venus, it forms a tender, loving aspect. All types of relationships can flourish under this influence, but it’s especially auspicious for romantic pairings. You might even start a new relationship today.

It brings about increased beauty, charm, social popularity, and successful dating experiences. It’s an ideal time to be with your partners and friends, if you’re able to do so right now.

When Leo (fire) and Gemini (air) mingle, they can kindle some playful, spontaneous energy. You might find yourself in the mood to seek out new experiences and fun activities. Lean into it. The moon is of course void until tomorrow, so serious matters and decision making aren’t advisable anyway.

Mercury Moves into Cancer at 2:12 PM

The planet Mercury rules our thoughts, ideas, and how we communicate with others. When Mercury was in Gemini, we were quick-thinking, communicative, and sociable. Later this afternoon, the planet moves into emotional Cancer, and things slow down a bit.

Cancer has us feeling reflective. We think, speak, and take in information in a deeper, more soulful way. We also focus less on the universe as a whole, but more on our personal feelings and those of the loved ones we surround ourselves with. Our thoughts turn toward nurturing and protecting our nearest and dearest.

Because Mercury has a logical, down-to-business energy, this placement could cause a bit of friction for us. Mercury rules the mind, and Cancer is all about feelings. Our emotions will color our thoughts, which has the potential to get us into trouble. On the other hand, Cancer can also soften Mercury’s sharp edges, allowing us to communicate our emotions more clearly and directly.

You can expect some sentimental conversations to surface over the next couple of months, before Mercury moves into Leo on August 4. But these conversations could also be very productive. We’re not afraid to get vulnerable right now, and to discuss things that might have seemed uncomfortable before. Our relationships could deepen as a result.
