Speaking of the planet of possessions and pleasures, Venus begins her retrograde on May 13th, the same day when Mars moves into Pisces, and that retrograde lasts until June 25th. In addition to finances, Venus represents who and what we love. After being cooped up for the past few months, our desire to reconnect with loved ones or indulge in a little retail therapy or pampering will be particularly strong, especially with Venus in sociable Gemini

Over the next two weeks, we will be entering a consequential seven-week-period. This is the impactful time frame that I’ve been talking about the economic implications of for over a year. I had no idea that COVID-19 would facilitate the financial challenges that I foresaw, until this past February when news of the impending pandemic began to break.

Those two are of course presently entrenched in Capricorn, the sign of governments, banking and economic systems. It’s hard to say what will shake out from these confrontations, but it’s fair to say that a whole lot of shaking will be going on
