        yea correct, thanks, I guess we didn't pay attention and filled that aspects reading along with the Venus-Mercury ones in case of synastry and transits, but it doesn't make sense on the birth chart. Will correct. Mercury and Venus at most can be 74 degrees apart, so just a few aspects are possible.
