Venus is the apex of the Wedge triangle, which can provide a creative outlet for the tension of the opposition. She is also Out of Bounds and less likely to be overly confined by convention—in all, a very powerful combination! Jupiter is also at the apex, and although a tad on the wide side in orb, Jupiter still has a very strong presence in the Wedge pattern.

Jupiter is riding high in his own sign and is also conjunct the Galactic Centre , which amplifies his revelation that all things are possible if you just have enough faith. The New Moon is also in Fiery Sagittarius, giving a renewed sense of meaning and significance to your ability to focus your faith.
Whatever you put your faith in, that's what's likely to come back to you. This could be a magical kind of process something that just happens to you , but it can also be because that's what you're expecting and are therefore more open to seeing and acknowledging the things that fit your expectations. This can feed either positive or negative expectations. For example, if you believe the only way life can get better is to purge everything you aren't comfortable with from your life, you might become more judgmental toward people who disappoint or disagree with you, and thereby experience an increase in people who annoy or trigger you.
Jupiter's shift into Capricorn might then seem to confirm your more discouraging expectations. That said, you feel what you feel, and if you're feeling down or disappointed or weary, the last thing you'd want to do is double-down on a gloomy state of mind. At the same time, you can't just make yourself feel up and cheerful without risking the suppression of feelings that could rebound in subconscious ways. Try this on for size: acknowledge how you feel and know that it's okay to feel what you feel. But it's not mandatory to act on those feelings.
Instead, take your feelings and perceptions as a possibility of what could happen or what might continue for a while, but reserve final judgment to see how it turns out. Everything changes, and even when things get worse it's often because there's a process unfolding that needs to play out before something better can emerge.

You may feel a bit like you're in a catch no-win situation , where the more you try to find balance and harmony, the more you feel like you're chasing your own tail around in circles.
This is a time when healing in relationships and financial problems may be difficult to obtain. Harmony in these areas can seem impossible or blocked, yet it is still necessary to keep trying. By trying anyway, it may be possible to find a solution that meets your needs, even if it may not be what you wanted, hoped for or expected.
Strive to find a creative solution that draws on your best side. Neptune now turns direct after being retrograde for about 5 months. For up to a week before and after this date, you might feel a bit dreamy, disconnected, depressed, sluggish or scatter-brained. The Neptune energy takes you into a non-rational, intuitive place and can stir up feelings and issues from the unconscious.
Vivid dreams could give you insight into situations you have been wrestling with, and your intuitive sensitivity might seem to come out of nowhere. Or you might experience the opposite—your dreams elude you and you feel cut off from your usual intuitive sense. What is happening is that your "right-brain" intuitive, creative, non-rational, faith-oriented is passing the torch to your "left-brain" rational, logical, linear, practical , and you can get caught in the whirlpool of transition.

Thoughts, awareness and decision-making tend to be clearer, and your path ahead may be easier to see. It can be a good time to reflect on the information and awareness you've gathered in the last couple of months and finalize plans for how best to act on these.
If you were feeling confused or frustrated during the retrograde period, things can make more sense now. Let this be a time of fresh perspective and awareness. Your mind is very open to imagination, dreams and compassion under this transit.
