Sidereal. If you’re curious about your chart using the sidereal zodiac you can find a guide with instructions on plotting your sidereal chart here, and a post outlining some of the philosophical differences between tropical and sidereal here.

Overview

July is in many ways the follow-up to April. Sun square Jupiter, Venus opposed Saturn, and Mercury entering its retrograde shadow are all continuations of the stories and cycles we experienced then. I outlined the details of that month in two separate posts because it was so eventful (here and here). But this time, I’m gonna lay July out for you in one long read.

Planets move into Cancer starting with Mercury on July 2 and culminates with a Sun- Mars conjunction at 10 Cancer on July 27. Mercury enters its retrograde shadow near the New Moon in Cancer, officially opening the door to eclipse season. You’ll need your seat belt for this month.

So is much happening in Cancer this month. Women take center stage and make or break the progression of the narratives we live during this time.

Being under the governorship of the Moon makes these transits and configurations visceral. You feel them in your body, you want to act or react. My keyword for Cancer is responsive. That’s how Cancer moves when it’s present and aware.

Reaction is great when there is an imminent threat, or an opportunity that must be captured in the moment. Responsiveness is a muscle that must be worked and strengthened. It’s what we become when our reactionary minds pause, reflect, and decide on the best course of action. For champion boxers it happens on autopilot because it is approached as a discipline. It’s in their muscle’s memory.

Let this be your meditation for July.

July 2 – Mercury enters Cancer

Mercury answers to the Moon when it’s in Cancer. One’s use of language—when and how one communicates—is a tool of the emotions. Physiology and psychology teach us that every emotional state has a corresponding physiological state. Emotions are our intellectual concepts for the way we categorize those physiological responses to our experiences.

Fear forces the body to limit energy use to life sustaining processes only so that you can take off and run or fight back in the face of a threat. This is why prolonged fear induced worry and stress can have a detrimental effect on the body. I’m sure those with prominent Cancer in their chart know all about digestive issues and unwanted weight gain.

But, Cancer is hyper sensitive and responsive to these states; how the body responds to people, circumstances, and the environment, and the emotions associated with those sensations. Following the lead of the Moon’s every 2.5 day or so sign changes, Mercury’s face and motivation change, too.

Mercury’s job is to communicate the reality and perceptions of the Sun. In a Moon ruled sign, however, there may be a disruption in transmission. Even if the Mercury in Cancer can think lucidly, the urgency of their emotions and their physiological expression may override otherwise sound logic.

Emotional outbursts, saying things one doesn’t really mean can cause problems emotionally and professionally. But speaking the honesty of the moment can also be liberating. Can Mercury in Cancer discern between the two?

July 6 – Sun in Gemini square Jupiter in Virgo

The synodic cycle of the Sun and Jupiter represents the evolving relationship between our perception of reality and our beliefs about what is possible.

At the conjunction (in Virgo September 2016) our perceptions and our beliefs are unified. In Virgo, there is a calculative experience of reality, seeing the world as sets of data, rather than actual people, and equations to be solved rather than experiences to live, enjoy, and learn from.

The first square was at 90°. The Sun had moved on to Sagittarius while Jupiter remained in Virgo (January 2017). The dissonance between …

July 9 – Full Moon 23 Sagittarius

Moon in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter in Virgo with Jupiter in a tight square, angular to the Sun and Moon. That’s astrology for Jupiter in Virgo being the boss of this Moon.

Jupiter in Virgo:

Jupiter at this Full Moon represents a narrative that challenges our perception of reality (Sun) & our physical experience of it (Moon). Seeing is, in fact, NOT believing. Who and what do you trust?

Both the Sun and Mars are in Gemini. Gemini is a parrot of sorts. It’s job is to say what it sees and repeat what it hears. It isn’t the most conscious or thoughtful sign. But that’s not in its job description anyway. Mars in Gemini can be reckless and distracted, causing accidents. It can also be playful and not take things seriously.

Sagittarius, the sign of the Full Moon, finds its limitations in the fact that individual personal experience can’t speak for everyone. Sagittarius LOVES to be right. It wants to prove & persuade. And it has to know why.

So, we have a setup here of a search for answers, looking for ways to explain what is happening. There is much difficulty in discerning the truth. There is a lot of info to sift through (Gemini), some of it disruptive and upsetting (Mars). Jupiter wants to weave together the facts (Virgo). But, Sagittarius must know why. It’s not enough to have information. There has to be some measure for truth.

Look to the missing piece of this configuration. It’s Pisces. Sometimes you can know things and not know how you know. This is the lesson of Pisces, the only mutable sign not occupied by a planet. This Full Moon asks us to cultivate our intuition. Close your eyes. Transcend your body. Set aside your beliefs. Tap into that other way knowing.

July 11 – Mars in Cancer

Mars in Cancer is in fall. It’s ill-equipped for the task at hand, or at least forced to do it’s job in an unstable environment and less than ideal circumstances. Mars’ task is to …

July 16 – Sun in Cancer

Five days after Mars, the Sun enters Cancer, the sign where it will finally catch up to and overtake Mars for a bodily conjunction.

The Sun is our perception of reality. It’s the eyes we see through that determine what we see and how we see it. Sun in Cancer perceives reality through the lens of what is familiar. The past is a filter that shades its awareness.

Women take center stage as influential leaders and power figures during this time. Just like Mars being in Cancer, the Sun is subject to the changing face of the Moon …

July 18 – Venus in Taurus trine Jupiter in Virgo

A trine means support, but it says nothing about the benevolence or malevolence of what is being supported.
As the narrative that defines what we believe is possible, Jupiter met by Venus in a trine aspect says that what we desire is supported by a belief that we can get it. This is the definition of optimism. Whether or not this optimism is warranted is another subject all together …

July 20 – Mercury in Leo

When Mercury enters Leo on July 20, it is entering the sign where it will have the most important retrograde of the year. It rivals the retrograde from April, but is much more significant …

July 23 – New Moon at 6 Cancer

This date and the days surrounding it are probably the most important days of the year. If you have read my Twitter thread interpreting and offering predictions using Donald Trump’s solar return you’ll know that these days are important to whether or not Trump remains president. In that thread I talk about the New Moon in Cancer triggering his chart in 4 different ways: by transit, time lord, progressed chart, and eclipse trigger. (link to a long thread of tweets analyzing Trump’s solar return)

This New Moon ushers in eclipse season. The August Full Moon at 17 Capricorn that follows is a Lunar Eclipse. While the August 21 Total Solar Eclipse has been the focus, don’t underestimate the punch of a Lunar Eclipse.

Now, about this New Moon in Cancer …

July 24 – Venus in Taurus opposed Saturn in Scorpio

In case you forgot, Venus and Saturn had a series of intense squares back in April. Venus was stationing direct and Saturn was stationing Rx. They sat within orb for at least 2 weeks.

When Venus in Pisces was in that extended square with Saturn, it brought important decisions regarding commitments and contracts., re-negotiations and changes in the terms of agreements. It brought an end to many relationships.

Venus in that extended square with Saturn required some to establish boundaries where there were none or where they were weak. Inconsistency and unsureness was magnified. Discrepancies between what you said you wanted and what you were willing or had the power to do where illuminated.

This time they are in opposition which is different from a square. Squares are …

July 24 – Mercury enters Retrograde shadow at 4 Leo

Four degrees of Leo is hot, hot, hot! And Mercury is the brave planet that will first trigger that sensitive eclipse point. That happens on July 24 …

 

July 26 – Venus in Gemini

Venus’ transit through each of the signs colors our interactions with others and the tone of our personal relationships. In general, its job is to illuminate the common ground that allows people to cooperate. In Gemini, that common ground can take on a variety of forms …

July 27 – Sun conjunct Mars, 10 Cancer

I’ve outlined above what the Sun and Mars mean when moving through Cancer. But, what does it mean for Mars to meet the heart of the Sun while it is in Cancer?

The month ends with Mars stepping up to once again disrupt and divide. All year long Mars has been the author of confusion, here to remind us that our sense of peace and normalcy is tentative at best. Change must eventually take root, and Mars is the one that sows the seeds

A planet is cazimi when …

Revelations: The Astrology of April 7, 2017 – April 15, 201

Important Dates

All transits are in sidereal. If you’re curious about your chart using the sidereal zodiac you can find a guide with instructions on plotting your sidereal chart here, and a post outlining some of the philosophical differences between tropical and sidereal here.

I’ve been saying that the week of April 9 is the turning point, but the astrology of Friday April 7 through Saturday April 15 are probably the most intense days of the year, second only to late August when the total solar eclipse in Leo occurs and early September when the eclipse degree is triggered. Think of this as act one. Here is a rundown:

April 7

Saturn Rx, 3 Sagittarius

Uranus enters Aries

Sun opposite Jupiter

April 9

Mercury stations retrograde, 10 Aries

April 11

Full Moon conjunct Jupiter, 27 Virgo

April 12

Mars enters Taurus

April 13

Aries Ingress, Sun conjunct Uranus

April 15

Venus stations direct at 2 Pisces

This 9 +/- period augurs a cyclical shift that sheds light on previously unclear circumstances so that power dynamics change. It’s an overlap of cycles beginning and cycles ending. One thing resolves and another thing surfaces to be addressed. April is extreme, but May provides respite. Read on for a detailed look at each of this astro events.

The Astrology of April 7, 2017 - April 15, 2017 - @PeoplesOracle

Saturn Retrograde at 3 Sagittarius, April 7

Saturn has spent the last 2 years in Scorpio. He entered Sagittarius for a brief 6 months stay on January 26, 2017. I’ve made observations on Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius. I want to use this space to talk about Saturn re-entering Scorpio which happens June 20, 2017 through October 26, 2017.

Saturn will spend 4 months back in Scorpio to wrap up unfinished business. Saturn is about power and authority. It’s about sovereignty over ourselves. In Scorpio, Saturn answers to Mars and highlights our volition; do we submit to authority figures willingly or are we coerced?

Saturn breeds either humility or hubris. It can also breed humiliation. That’s where we find ourselves with Saturn in Scorpio. Does the exercising of our will come from:

  • An understanding that our power is limited and we are always subject to someone or something?
  • A belief that we can strong arm our way to positions of power?
  • Or do we feel bereft of personal power and influence in our world?

These are the questions that we will be answering the 4 months between June and October. What is our relationships with our own power and the power of others? This is a theme that manifests in our individual lives, personal relationships, and collectively.

Sun in Pisces opposite Jupiter in Virgo, April 7

Oppositions are a fulfillment of a promise made at the conjunction. Look back to late September 2016 when the Sun and Jupiter had their annual conjunction at 9 Virgo. As the Sun progressed past Jupiter on to a 90° square (28 Sagittarius/Virgo mid January 2017) we met a crises point and opportunity for breakthrough. Let’s look at what this signifies.

The Sun is the mind, the intellect. It is perception and the light of illumination. Jupiter is synthesis, contextualizing all that is perceived, crafting a narrative, and setting a precedent for possibility. When they are conjunct in Virgo, they are subject to Mercury’s need to concretize perception and synthesis into language and symbols, equations and data. We get numbers, facts, figures, and statistics.

When the Sun squares Jupiter from Sagittarius, we get the first challenge to the data. Perspective is provided and an alternative narrative is developed.

Now that we are reaching the culmination, the opposition of the Sun and Jupiter, it’s time for a revelation. The Sun shines light on Jupiter from Pisces. Read more on this opposition below, under the Full Moon in Virgo.

Uranus in Aries, April 7

The significations of Uranus can be gleaned from Mars and Mercury alone. But there is something to be said for the validity of Uranus acting like a fixed star, as I have personally experienced the herky-jerky tribulations of a Uranus transit.

Uranus entered sidereal Pisces for the first time back in 2009, but for good in 2010. This was a feature of the Uranus-Pluto square that has dominated the astrological landscape for the past several years (since 2012). Uranus entered Aries briefly last summer (2016) only just into the 1st degree. This time, Uranus is an Aries for good until 2024/2025.

While Uranus brings disruption and chaos, in Pisces that disruption can be diffuse and misdirected, revealing no clear aim. Uranus in Pisces is like lightning striking water. The electrical current of the bolt scatters over the surface of the water in all directions. Anyone swimming, or ships near the location of the strike, will most certainly be shocked, burned, or killed. But the depths of the water is left untouched.

This is not to say that the many crises precipitated during Uranus in Pisces, especially its extended square with Pluto, didn’t change anything beneath the surface. It’s that Uranus in Pisces conceals the depths of Uranus’ change, it deceives the scope of the effect of the change. But Uranus in Aries comes to make it clear.

Aries doesn’t have the laser like precision of Scorpio. It’s more like an axe that hacks away till the tree comes down. But the tree will come down.

Uranus was last in Aries beginning in 1933. Anyone with just a cursory knowledge of history knows that year changed the trajectory of global politics and economics. I did an astrological comparison of Aries ingress charts from 1933 and 2017 in this post. And there you’ll learn that the Sun and Uranus are conjunct at 0 Aries in the Aries Ingress chart once every 84 years. So Uranus entering Aries is a BIG DEAL.

The next 7 years is a time where the change becomes permanent. Things are not going back to how they were. The Aries house in your chart is getting an old fashioned shakedown. It may be completely destroyed, or at least unrecognizable, after Uranus is finished. 

Most of you reading this have never experienced Uranus in Aries, so this is unprecedented in many ways. I’ll be sharing more about ways this may manifest in our individual charts in the near future​.

Mercury retrograde, April 9

Mercury in Aries is ruled by Mars. In Pisces, Mercury was a cauldron of symbolism, tasked with finding language for the unspeakable, the unspoken. Now, in Aries, the messenger becomes a bugle, a horn with a battle cry. Mercury in Aries is subject to the drive for self protection, and the will to survive. Words are weapons declaring war, meant to decapitate and permanently separate.

Mercury is following the path that Mars cleared just a few weeks ago. Mars was the bulldozer clearing the way. Mercury in Aries will reveal the messages on what has been cleared.

This is a particularly long retrograde. This one is almost 4 weeks, and it covers the first 10 degrees of Aries. The retrograde station is at 10 Aries on April 9, and the direct station is at 0 degrees on May 4, and that is conjunct Uranus. This is truly a time of dramatic change that upsets the status quo, begs for innovation, and requires constant adjustment.

The Shadow period began March 26, so you may be able to get an idea of what this period will feature for you as March ends and April begins. But we’re dealing with a volatile sign, and two unstable planets (Mercury and Uranus). If you have any angles in early Aries, or prominent planets there, then this may be a particularly busy time for you. And it’s only just beginning with Uranus coming.

It may be helpful to think back to May of 2016 which was the last Aries Mercury Rx. Thinking back to April 28 through May 22 of that year can provide clues to the topics and areas of life that may be up for review this year.

Mercury retrograde is a time to go back and review unfinished business, revisit past situations, and redo things that need to be adjusted. This period is also good for restarting things that didn’t work out the first time, or undoing things that turned out not to be a good thing.

Full Moon at 27 Virgo, conjunct Jupiter, April 11

Lunations are very important because the Moon’s phases are one of the larger cycles that often acts as a trigger for events. We can look at this Full Moon on April 11 as the bright light that illuminates everything else that’s going on. Particularly, the Moon’s conjunction with Jupiter is a trigger for other astro events that have been happening over the past 9 months.


All of the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) have made multiple aspects with Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter in Virgo is a hardline logician. Not reason, but equations that provide measurable data.

Planets from Gemini squaring Jupiter in Virgo are spin masters, taking the hard data and spinning it like a magician (enter Donald J. Trump who has natal Mercury in Gemini square Jupiter in Virgo).

Planets in Pisces opposing Jupiter in Virgo work hard to contextualize that data into a larger scheme. We’ve watched a kind of two-way distillation process during sidereal Pisces season. So much information and varied data has been raining on our heads for months, but now it finally seems like we can understand exactly what is all of this data implies. Or maybe it means nothing at all?

Planets in Sagittarius squaring Jupiter in Virgo speak of  a partial breakdown. The zeal of dogma and the factuality of data squaring off head on. We’ve seen the zeal of both congress and the president receive pushback because the actual data and personal experiences of folks block bureaucracy

We’re going to see this square off politically as revelations RE Devin Nunes, the Trump family, Jeff Sessions, et al makes serious waves.

One thing that is particularly significant is that this Full Moon in Virgo is ruled by a freshly retrograde Mercury. That means that Mercury is still moving very slowly and is apt to cause delays, reversals, and revisiting matters in your Virgo house and Gemini house.

This particular story has been building since last August, so it may be beneficial to do a personal recap of what was going on in your life at that time.

Mars in Taurus, April 12

The transit from Aries to Taurus is a big one for Mars. He goes from his domicile (home) to far away from home, his detriment. Mars will be in sidereal Taurus from April 12 until May 26.

Mars in Aries is the infantry soldier, the tree logger, and the knife sharpener. Mars answers to himself there. He doesn’t ask for permission. And he doesn’t apologize, he just goes for it.

But in Taurus Mars must answer to Venus who isn’t sympathetic to his needs. Mars is divisive, combative, and conflicting. Venus is unifying, assuaging, and harmonizing. You see the challenge here? When Mars has to get permission from Venus in order to act, Mars has to shed his usual demeanor and take on a more conciliatory approach.

Taurus is about decorum, beauty, sensuality. As a Venus ruled sign it puts Mars in a bind. Mars wants to fight. It wants to cut and separate. Divide and deconstruct. So how do you fight with decorum? Cut with beauty? Divide sensually? It’s a conundrum. You become passive aggressive.

Mars in Taurus is the nice-nasty friend who slides in digs with a smile. It’s “bless your heart”, when they really mean to curse you. It’s fighting while maintaining a connection. And the ultimate in latent aggression. Mars in Taurus isn’t a pushover, just someone who wants to maintain decorum in the midst of the fight.

Aries Ingress, April 13

I’ve already written extensively about the Aries Ingress. Instead of outlining things here I will provide a list of links. These are links to a post on my blog and threads on Twitter where I talking more about what to expect in the USA regarding the Ingress. If you are not clear on what ia ingress is, read the first link.

Venus Stationary Direct at 2 Pisces, April 15

Venus has been retrograde since March 4. That day she sat still at 19 Pisces and appeared to begin travelling backwards through the zodiac. By April 15, she will have landed at 2 Pisces and once again sit still, but this time appear to move forward. She’ll be slow for awhile, though.

Planets moving slower than their normal speed and direction demand our attention. With regard to Venus it’s a time for reexamination of our desires;

  • Do you really want what you said you wanted?
  • Will you maintain your commitment?
  • Or is it time for a renegotiation?
  • Do you need more time to make a decision?

This can apply to anything that requires a consensus or agreement between people. It can apply to our physical desires as well. The essence of it all is choice. Venus Rx is a time to consider (which means to examine the stars) why we have chosen or choose as we do. What motivates your choices?

As Venus slows between April 7 and April 15, it is a time to reckon up. We must make an account for how we’ve chosen to proceed in certain areas of our lives.

The direct station occurs at a time when so much else is happening in the sky that it may be hard to know what’s what. But the end of Venus’ retrograde travel is like the icing on the cake to a week of unrelenting activity.

Mercury’s retrograde station and Venus’ direct station overlap and can make for quite a confusing time. Just when you feel like you’ve gotten your sea legs with Venus, Mercury comes along to shake things up. If the work of Venus has mostly been internal for you, Mercury lays the cards on the table.

Are you ready!

 

Astrology for the Week of February 27, 2017

This week is very busy. Here is an overview of each day—all signs and transits in sidereal:

Monday, February 27
Mixed bag with Moon entering Pisces, Mars and Jupiter perfecting their opposition

Tuesday, February 28
Venus and Jupiter take over as Moon in Pisces conjuncts Venus then begins applying an opposition to Jupiter

Wednesday, March 1
FIERY! Moon sets off Mars/Jupiter and both Moon and Mars enter Aries

Thursday, March 2
Probably the quietest day of the week, Moon still skating through Aries though

Friday, March 3
Moon skates out of Aries and settles into Taurus, passing the baton to a demanding Venus

Saturday, March 4
Moon in Taurus sauntering to square planets in Aquarius, especially Mercury

Sunday, March 5
Venus stops to demand our attention. Moon is busy, too!

Now for the nitty gritty details!

Weekly Forecast - @PeoplesOracle

The week starts off with the Moon in Aquarius on Monday. She’s not making any aspects before she leaves for Pisces around 1pm CST. Don’t let that fool you though. Mars and Jupiter perfect their opposition today.

Tuesday and Wednesday are busy busy. Mars is teetering on the last degree of Pisces daring us before he kicks off a 6 week stay in his domicile of Aries. Mars has been ahead of all the planets giving us a taste of what is to come for a while now.

On December 16, 2016, Mars triggered the August 21, 2017 Eclipse degree (4 Leo) by opposition. On that day, President Obama announced that the Russian government had indeed initiated the hacking of DNC emails. He vows to retaliate.

Mars activated the February 26, 2017 solar eclipse degree on December 29, 2016 (13 Aquarius). That day, then President Obama announced sanctions against Russia for meddling in the 2016 elections. At the same time, Michael Flynn was having conversations with Russia assuring them that they didn’t have to worry about those pesky sanctions.

Just as the Sun entered Aquarius on February 13, 2017, setting the stage for the next New Moon Eclipse, flynn resigned as National Security Advisor amid news that he may have promised Russia that the Trump administration would relax sanctions once they took office.

All of that to say that the story of the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse at 4 Leo will be Russia. Trump will get hit pretty hard. Stay tuned.

Back to this week!

Moon is in Pisces on Tuesday applying to a conjunction to Venus most of the day. Later in the afternoon she’ll pass up Venus and begin applying an opposition to Jupiter. Moon opposes Jupiter earlier in the day on Wednesday and then it’s game time! Moon reactivates the waning opposition between Mars and Jupiter making Tuesday into Wednesday a big news day.

Tuesday will feel powerful yet indulgent with Venus and Jupiter getting all of the Moon’s attention. With Mars out of the way, the Moon has a chance to facilitate a conversation between Venus and Jupiter. This conversation speaks of possibilities that won’t quite manifest right now but will come up again later, May 19 to be exact. That date is important and will come up again, so write it down.

Venus is moving extremely slow. She’s settling into her retrograde station which means she’s powerful and demanding our attention. Watch for women in the news on Tuesday. Also, women may feel particularly intense and passionate. If you’re on Twitter we’ve seen women dominate conversations. Even this weekend a normally male dominated practice was taken over by women when Remy Ma released a diss track about Nicki Minaj.

Expect more of this kind of energy this week and over the next month.

Both the Moon and Mars enter Aries Wednesday evening. But first, the Moon conjuncts Mars at 29 degrees of Pisces before jumping over enter Aries just a few minutes before he does. Then they sit together in partile conjunction at 0 Aries. This shifts the conversation for a minute for women focused to men focused. Assertiveness and aggressiveness dominate until the Moon enters Taurus on Friday.

Wednesday can go a few different ways. Moon and Mars at 0 Aries introduces us to the energy that will lead us forward. Mars has been clearing the pathway all year as he’s been ahead of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus. He’s been the first to enter every sign.

Now, here we are. Mars is crossing into Aries which undoubtedly gives us a the first pieces of our Aries Ingress story both collectively and personally. This is a day you want to set intentions for because it may be wild and electric once the day actually arrives, it may get away from you once it sets in. So, spend the ease of Tuesday evening preparing for Wednesday.

If you’ve read my Aries Ingress predictions you’ll know what this setup is for.

You’ll want to mark this day for yourself. Even if nothing happens, pay attention to how you feel, what’s on your mind, and what area of your life your attention is directed towards.

Wednesday evening, Moon trines Saturn. That provides an opportunity for whatever had us raging earlier in the day to come down to earth and ground a bit. This could solidify a conflict or separation, giving you the courage to move forward boldly.

Thursday is relatively quiet. While the Moon is still in Aries, it’s skating towards its last aspect while in the sign, a sextile with the Sun. This is a waxing Moon so energy is building towards the First Quarter Moon which is the bend in road towards the upcoming Full Moon.

Moon sextile Sun late and overnight on Thursday keeps the Aries Moon energy moving full throttle with nothing in its way. That’s his last aspect before leaving for Taurus on Friday evening.

Friday is still fast paced for most of the day, but Moon skates uninhibited through the rest of Aries. The weekend energy comes at us slow and easy with a sensual Taurus Moon. Soon as the Moon enters Taurus Venus takes center stage for many reasons.

Moon in Taurus applies to a square with Mercury in Aquarius all day on Saturday, trying to put into words what we feel.

Sunday is busy once again. Moon sextiles Venus with reception. But Venus stations retrograde that day making her the dominating influence for the day. Relationship issues may surface as we once again visit the themes we’ll be dealing with for the next few weeks as Venus retraces the path she’s travelled since late January.

This is a long trip ya’ll so I will write more on Venus rx later.
