An eclipse of the Sun takes place in your sign on May 20, then two weeks later is the Venus transit of the Sun, also in your sign. This is a truly rare conjunction of the Sun and Venus, so precise that you can actually watch it happen (with eye protection, and if the Sun is visible where you are). Visible translates to visionary, and a personal turning of the eras. Let’s begin with a question: What would your life be like if you resolved much of the nagging tension that you carry around, year after year? What if your mind were a quieter place? How much more confident would you be? To understand the influence of this event, I suggest you look back to this time of year in 2004. What is the story of May and June of that year? This is one of the key “before and after” points of your life. Venus transits come in pairs, separated by eight years, and 2004 was the first of the current pair. Think of ’04 as a time when you initiated changes that you didn’t necessarily recognize were part of a total self-reinvention. You embarked on “another way of looking at the world.” This comes to full fruition during the next six weeks. You may find yourself making long-delayed decisions, finding the courage to express yourself in ways you’ve always hesitated to, or being released into a total rebirth. Look around and remind yourself: the end of the past is near.
