Mercury and Venus are ‘friends’ in Vedic Astrology. Venus is in its own sign. So overall, this is a positive development for the significations of Mercury and Venus.

It’s the planet of Communications, Ideas & Reasons, with the planet of Relationships, Compromise & Agreement, together in the sign of Tangible Value & Material Wealth. This is generally a good thing. Agreement is easier to achieve, the Economy looks good, people are more Positive.

Mercury and Venus will each become conjunct Rahu in the middle of May. Rahu is the North Node of the Moon; it’s one of the Eclipse Points. Rahu is a ‘Chaya Graha’, a Shadow Planet. It can Obscure the significations of a conjunct planet, causing Confusion and Distortion for the planet’s significations. Rahu is one of the Demons in Vedic Mythology; demons don’t play fair.
