The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month.  The 10th house rules your work and career.  This transit could bring hard-won recognition.  It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do.  In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that. 

The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.

Opportunities from the past through ideas, clients, contacts, or anything else from the past could help in a big way. This is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time.  

If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work.  Past labors can show up now in major ways Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. Opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.

Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.

The area of the chart that is accentuated now also rules your reputation out in the world.  Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂

For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose.  Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world all month and beyond through the year.  Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change.  It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.

Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe is going through something and he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way.

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 seriesHere 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 Virgo Horoscope is more relevant for you.
