"But it’s interesting that the Transit of Venus is happening in the middle degrees of Gemini – it’s the highlight of the Venus Retro cycle from April to August – and the very same degrees will have Jupiter going back and forth over them for a year from mid-June. So this is more something being seeded; a new attitude, a new art concept, a new romance. Yes, any romance that springs up between April & August is most likely karmic. Llike you met them in Byzantine times or whatever – see the How Did I Know X In A Past Life Oracle question. But this phase is JUST as likely to involve some of those o.m.g. break-ups or the release of an addiction as it is some sooky goo-goo soulmating."
