Mercury Enters Leo, Mercury conjunct Retrograde Venus & Jupiter
Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter will all be tightly conjunct this week in the early degrees of Leo. The exact conjunction will be Thursday-Friday (just in time for Republican Candidates debate). When planets are on top of each other they tend to interfere with each other, which can result in Confusion, and Distortion of planetary significations. Mercury, planet of Facts, is the weakest of the three. Therefore, this may not be a good week for making important decisions. But all three of these planets are "natural benefics," so the damage can't be too bad. By the end of the week, the planets are getting a couple of degrees apart, and the energy will gradually sort itself out.
