The Sun rolls through your 2nd house this month bringing great opportunities for making more money. Earned income often sees a boost during this transit. If you have money-making ideas or anything related to business goals, this could be a great time to take steps along your continuum.
Finances could definitely see some improvements and also note that spending also tends to increase during this transit, too. So while you see the increase in the amount coming it will likely translate to an increase in the amount going out, especially if you don’t specifically make an effort to not have your spending rise with your income. If you put aside a certain percentage of your new increased income, you will likely be glad you did.
Sometimes the Sun moving through this house brings information or insight about blocks to financial prosperity. Seeing the issue(s) more clearly can help to bring resolution. Some work may have to be done other strategy to help increase extra income and the usage of income that comes in is very prudent now. Setting financial goals and getting educated or having other support to reach them can make your money dreams a reality in the future and work you did on this topic in the past could come to fruition now in a big way. Since Venus, ruler of money, is in retrograde, follow your intuitive hunches and ‘synchronicities’ to help guide your through your timing for decision-making.
The urge to buy luxury or more expensive items may be strong now. Make sure to study all of my Venus retrograde resources listed in this blog to help you make the best decisions on this topic.
The Sun in this sector also brings opportunities to re-evaluate your value system. What is most important to you in your life? Is the amount of time you are spending on those most important things in the right ratio compared to their importance to you? Asking bigger questions about things like this now will lead to valuable insights.
The sector of your chart highlighted now also has to do with sustainability on any and all levels. Asking questions about your imprint and sustainability of your lifestyle is well-favored now. Taking measures to conserve or live lighter and more simply may be topics that come into the forefront.
It is interesting that this same house that rules luxury items also rules simple living. Rolling around in the possibilities of this spectrum is what is being brought up now. Some who have been living with a lot of excess may be drawn to pare down, and some who have been living with the bare essentials may be drawn to expand their interactions with the material realm. Either way that feels true to you is perfect 🙂
Your self-value translated out into the material realm is also a major topic with this transit. Your earning power may be your most valuable asset. It may be time to think about how to invest in your earning power as your greatest investment.
Taurus energies bring great focus and discipline earlier in the month then Gemini takes over as the dominating force bringing excess physical and mental activity, scatteredness and movement. The Venus retrograde shadow period runs through May 12 with the official Venus retro transit starting May 13 and running through June 25, with a post shadow period going until the very end of July 2020. Venus rules love, beauty, money, design, self-esteem – so LOTS of area affected by this transit! The retrograde brings things on the topic of Venus back from the past into forefront, both blissful and challenging things can float back into focus to be worked with. You can see more about Venus retrograde in my video on the topic and my blog series. Here is my Venus Retrograde written version of the video with additions and updates I have made over time of people asking questions on the topic.
Eclipses often bring drama, intense endings, exciting new beginnings, and surprise trajectory changes. We have 3 eclipses this eclipse season (I am calling them the Triad of Transformation) – June 5 a Lunar eclipse at 15° of Sagittarius (starting the new Sagittarius/Gemini Eclipse cycle that runs through early 2021), a Solar eclipse at 0° of Cancer on June 21, and a second Lunar eclipse at 13° of Capricorn finishing off the Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle that started mid-2018. Since eclipses often start heating up with news and events 4-6 weeks (or more) before the actual eclipses, May is prime time for eclipse happenings.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Taurus Horoscope is more relevant for you.
