A Venus cycle begins at the inferior conjunction, when Venus is exactly between the Sun and the Earth. At the superior conjunction, which is equivalent to the opposition aspect, Venus is on the far side of the Sun, with the Sun standing exactly between the Earth and Venus. For example, if you want to look up the Venus sign for a birth date of August 12th, 1969, note that Venus entered Cancer on August 3rd, 1969 and entered Leo on August 28th, 1969. Therefore a person born on August 12th, 1969 would have Venus in Cancer. Times given are Eastern Time.

Mercury conjunct Venus natal makes you a loving, cultured and honest person of good breeding. You may have a tendency to be passive and submissive but this is a means by which you achieve peace in your life. Diplomacy is a strong point and you may often be called on to sort out problems between friends.

Communication is another strong point. This aspect does not particularly point to any field of study or topic of debate. It is your actual style of communication which is important. You have the ability to communicate things in a loving way. This is often helped by a melodic, poetic and relaxing voice.

This talent for communicating means you should be at ease in social situations unless this conjunction receives challenging aspects to Saturn or another harsh planet in your chart. People will find you to be refined, elegant and even mesmerizing.

You have a good appreciation of art and creativity with strong pattern recognition. At school, you were probably a visual learner but also an avid reader. You can see pictures in words and words in pictures.

As Mercury rules trade and Venus rules money, you could do well in business and enjoy buying and selling. This goes well with your talent as a negotiator. Other areas of interest may be journalism, politics, art, music or sociology. However, as mentioned earlier, your skillset enables you to succeed in any profession.

Mercury Conjunct Venus Transit

Mercury conjunct Venus transit is the right time to tell someone you love them. You are in touch with what you love about a person and can more easily express this than at other times. You might also show your appreciation for someone through a gift or some other display of love.

There is just as much chance that you could be on the receiving end of someones else’s love or appreciation. You could receive a compliment, letter, invitation, gift or even some money. Any artistic and creative skills should be enhanced and you would enjoy making something with your hands or voice, such as poetry, music, and crafts.

Trading and negotiating are favored because of your smooth communication style and eye for a bargain. You can find peaceful settlements to disputes and be confident about signing contracts.

Making new friends is possible now because of increased social interaction and your mesmerizing voice. This is a good time to ask for a favor or to ask someone out on a date. Dating itself is also a good idea or you could renew old friendships and improve troubled ones.

Venus in Astrology

Venus is the planet of love, relationships, beauty, and finances. It guides the way we think about love, how we feel about being in a partnership, how we act on our needs and desires, and the role money and people play in our lives.

When Venus hooks up with the passion planet Mars, they're called 'Astrology's Lovers' -- they're the two planets that combine to form our overall approach to love and relationships. Venus is the planet of our inner desires, while Mars is about how we act on those desires.

Venus rules attraction and attachment to others which are the focus of relationship-oriented Libra. Additionally, Venus rules Taurus, the sign of the zodiac focused on practical matters like money (while still ruling sensual aspects of life like art and beauty).

Venus’ Lessons

This content was written by Tarot.com writer Jeff Jawer.

Venus was traditionally called the 'lesser benefic,' a positive force, but on a smaller scale than lucky Jupiter, the greater benefic. Still, she puts smiles on faces and represents pleasure and contentment -- like planetary dopamine for the brain. Venus rules earthy Taurus and airy Libra as sources of sensual delights and social satisfaction.

Bringing Venus into our lives makes us happy. She is the sweet smell of a rose, the taste of your favorite food, the sound of heart-stirring music, a soft touch of fabric, and the joy of seeing a beautiful image. Venus delights all the senses, and she is the queen of style. She is also a charmer, graceful in action, a skillful peacemaker, and a loving partner. Venus attracts money and appreciation, and she teaches us to see the best in ourselves.

There are many ways to cultivate the appealing qualities of Venus. The most important of them all is to be kind to ourselves. This is especially important when we aren’t at our best. Loving the least desirable parts of our personalities seems counterintuitive, as if we’re encouraging bad behavior. When we’re angry, impatient, clumsy, or even cruel, it’s natural for a responsible person to criticize these kinds of behavior. And yet, these shortcomings are connected to our wounds and cannot be healed with harsh judgment.

Healing comes with love that is rooted in tolerance. This doesn’t mean we approve of or want to continue negative actions, but when we pile on condemnation by putting ourselves down, the habit may be hidden -- but it is not eliminated.

Love is inclusive, so when the 'bad' parts of ourselves are embraced with compassion, they become integrated with the best of ourselves and are eventually healed. This is Venus as acceptance, the ground zero of self-worth upon which to build a happy life. This is not to suggest that we should approve of our bad behavior, but that we need to remind ourselves that seeing it without harsh judgment is an effective step toward reducing its influence in our lives.

Learning to receive is another aspect of Venus. Many of us have desires that aren’t fulfilled because we have some resistance to getting what we want. For some, receiving means being beholden to another, as if every gift becomes a debt we must repay. We can feel like we owe others, and are taking something away from them or giving up our independence to get what we need.

One way to counter this is to recognize the many moments when you are receiving without any obligation to reciprocate. When a baby’s smile or a beautiful sunset warms you, take it in. Enjoy these pleasures that are freely given with nothing expected in return. Notice when you feel comfortable in a chair and luxuriate in the simplicity of a stress-free moment. These are gifts of Venus that fill the heart without any cost.

If you want to make the world a happier place, make yourself happy. Receiving without guilt doesn’t lead to overindulgence; it leads to fulfillment and a sense of peace that will bring joy, love, and harmony to your environment. Appreciating life’s blessings is a reminder to appreciate yourself, which in turn makes you more attractive to others. Venus is the sweet resonance of harmony that reminds you that you are loved and your presence is a welcome gift to others.
