Taking Chances With Tricky Timing

Yesterday I looked over the astro aspects in the heavens, compared them to my own chart, and then went ahead and made a decision. Even though I wasn't THRILLED with the cards I had been dealt (the astro aspects), you gotta play 'em sometimes!
Let me lay it all out for you: yesterday there were FIVE planets in Leo, two of which were conjunct my natal Venus. Yesterday was a New Moon in Leo--traditionally a good time to begin new ventures.
HOWEVER, there were also these aspects which gave me second thoughts:
Mercury linking to Uranus (150-degree link)
Sun opposing Neptune
Venus in reverse conjunct Saturn (conjunct my natal Venus)
So what do I do? I go right ahead and play my hand and post a blog contest on my Who's Yo Mama blog offering the winner a $50 gift certificate. Was this a case of gambling for the fun of it? Or testing the astro waters? I guess you'd say I'm a natural born optimist or....well, why don't you share with me your thoughts?
