Your ruling planet Venus has turned to retrograde motion, and the Sun is about to exit your sign. This in total is a refresher course in staying in the moment, because that’s where the richest rewards are right now. Not in speculation or any form of obsession but rather in noticing where you’re at right now.
You feel two ways about many things. There’s often a dialog going in your mind, which at times makes you want to go out for ice cream and leave yourself behind. The question you might ask is, are you really involved in a true dialog in there? Or is it something else? A dialog would lead someplace useful, so you might use that as a metric.
On Wednesday, Venus turns to retrograde motion in Gemini. The retrograde effect has been present for a while, as Venus and Vesta have been moving through Gemini in a long conjunction, which culminates over the next couple of weeks. What I have for you today is a simple message from this retrograde: it is about reconciling with yourself.
Beltane is often counted as the midpoint of Taurus, though this year there are solar events on either side of that marker. Monday, Mercury and the Sun form their exterior conjunction (when Mercury is, from our point of view, directly behind the Sun). Then on Thursday, the Moon opposes the Sun from the sign Scorpio, which is the Full Moon.
Though the economy and society may be in tatters, keep working for the kind of success you want. You need a strategy, and its first element needs to be a clear and concise goal, or at least a point of arrival from which you can explore. Everything involves delineating a very basic series of steps you will likely take to get to another place.
