The Sun, Venus, and your ruler, Mars, will all line up in your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure until August 18. On the 8th, Venus will be at a gorgeous trine to Jupiter and then on the 14th, the Sun and Venus embrace in your 5th house. This cosmic lineup is all about being showered with blessings in love and whatever brings you joy. It might also be connected to your relationship with your children or finding out that you're expecting a baby. If you're dating someone, then you're head over heels in love with each other.

Never: (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. and Japan agreed on a broad framework for a trade deal that will keep U.S. tariffs on Japanese automobiles in place for now, while removing barriers to beef and pork exports to Japan, Japanese media reported. Robert Lighthizer, the U.S. Trade Representative, and Japan Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi reached an agreement in Washington on Friday, the Nikkei and Kyodo News reported, without citing sources. The U.S. currently has a 2.5% import tax on Japanese cars and a 25% levy on trucks from the nation. Japan will lower tariffs on U.S. beef and pork to the same levels as those proposed for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, they said. The report raises the likelihood that U.S. President Donald Trump and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will make a trade announcement during the Group of Seven summit in France this weekend. Japan is seeking to stay in Trump’s good graces to avoid costly tariffs and retain positive relations with an ally that ensures its security against China and North Korea. Japan is also counting on U.S. support as its diplomatic spat with South Korea intensifies.
