When Juno is direct and conjunct by the sun, It is called the Commitment Rapture Day. When Juno is retrograde and opposed by the sun, It is called the Commitment Clarity Day. The day of Clarity is named such, because it's the day that the effects of Juno’s retrograde become clear as to why its happening
