Venus, the planet of love and money, entered bighearted, flamboyant Leo last night. For the next few weeks we can expect big declarations of love and a desire to make major purchases.
The only caution is that Saturn retrograde in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus can heighten insecurity while making relationships and money matters more erratic. One day you have a full bank account and the next you don’t.
The same applies to romantic situations. You might be overprotective of a significant other and want them to remain loyal at all costs. The issue is that this can be seen as controlling or dominating. The reason you may act this way is that you’re tired of being disappointed. You wear your heart on your sleeve and have gotten burned in the past. You’re learning to let go and heal your heart simultaneously, which is why you’re acting this way.
In order to care for someone in a healthier way, it’s important to give them their space and let them enjoy their freedom. You can’t hold someone romantically hostage. Venus in Leo is big on trust, so this will be a lesson during this transit, especially when healing centaur Chiron, currently in Aries, comes along to mend your heart.
The Moon goes void-of-course a little after noon today, leaving us with a few too many ideas to sort through. We will likely need to find a way to step back and adopt a cautious approach until there is more definitive information available. As we work our way through the waning phase of this lunar cycle, we should remember that Mercury is in the post-retrograde shadow. We are just beginning to unwind some of the significant confusion produced by the previous retrograde Mercury and still need patience in order to effectively step through the debris and finally begin to draw productive conclusions.

Pig Spirit appears to remind you of the right use of intelligence, a gift we all have that is meant to be used with love, compassion, and discernment. Intelligence means recognizing the value of intuition partnered with smarts and common sense, which leads to intelligent solutions.
When Pig Spirit appears, you are called to respect your analytical mind and use it for the highest good, recognizing that all facts must be considered even when they do not fit with what you know already. Spirit blesses us with wisdom when we allow Pig Spirit to nudge us into open-minded, thoughtful dialogues, whether with others or internally as we mull over our ideas and what we have come to understand.
You are intelligent and capable of clear-minded thinking shaped by the wisdom you have accumulated and the intuition that will tell you when you have more learning to do because not all facts are in.
