The ancients taught a fascinating idea about a planet's visibility. When the planets disappear from our view, it is called a heliacal phase. On May 29th, Venus, our guardian of LOVE, RELATIONSHIPS, MONEY, PLEASURE, ART, AESTHETICS, and HARMONY, is due for her invisible phase, during which time, we won't see her when we gaze up at the night horizon.

This week we have a full moon at 17 degrees Scorpio! Look for where this point intersects your chart. This is the area of your life where new boundaries are being etched. A place where you may shut a door and walk away? Scorpio has a finality to it. It wastes no time on "shades of gray.” We are setting emotional boundaries.
