Apart from the simple sun-Venus conjunction, you can see that Venus' geocentric NN was aligned with its heliocentric NN at 16.30 Gemini. I will post a chart for this event later, along with an astrology article.
For now, just an introductory article on planetary nodes:
The article I posted on the nodes is mainly about the heliocentric NNs of each planet, which move very slowly. Your sun is on the Helio NN of Mars and that is considered highly significant; it's expected that you would embody Mars energy in a more pronounced way. The tumblr article I posted has a bit more information on it. I believe this functions almost like a sun-Mars conjunction, just more subtle.
The event I'm addressing here is the rare transit of Venus across the surface of the sun; it's like an eclipse except it doesn't block out the whole surface of the sun. It has only happened twice in our lifetime, and it will not happen again this century. It looks like this:
I'm still learning about the astrological significance of this transit; many astrologers say its influence is long-lasting, hence the value of examining it in retrospect....its effect is supposedly ongoing and part of our current energy landscape.
One simple thing to consider:
"Based on historical observation during three past such events, the energies of the venus transit have proven to usher in increased inquisitiveness and a great amassing of knowledge. In turn, leaps in scientific and technological advancements have occurred."
We're coming up on another sun-Venus conjunction so I'm looking at this whole topic more closely again.
Venus Phase Cycle, 1900-2050
Venus takes only 225 days to orbit the Sun. However, when she is viewed from Earth, her full synodic cycle (from inferior conjunction to inferior conjunction with the Sun) takes 584 days, or about 1.6 years. This is due to the interaction of Venus’s 225- day orbital period with the 365-day orbital period of the Earth. Below is a listing of the principal stages in each Venus phase cycle, with a line space between each 1.6-year cycle. Note that each new Venus phase cycle begins about a biquintile (144 degrees) earlier in the zodiac than the previous one. In five successive phase cycles the inferior conjunction points (or other comparable points in the cycles) trace a pentagram around the zodiac.
Five Venus phase cycles take almost exactly eight years. At the end of every five cycles, we have inserted an extra line space. This marks the beginning of a new series of five cycles. The new series traces a similar pentagram, but everything is displaced approximately two degrees earlier.
Note also that every four years the superior conjunction takes place at almost exactly the same zodiacal degree (within only a few minutes of arc) and usually on the same day of the year as the preceding inferior conjunction.

Direct station on my IC (rectified), max elongation on my birthday, superior conjunction square my nodes, max elongation exact on my SN.
The OP is about a sun-Venus conjunction that happened , which was conjunct my Mars, tightly aspecting my sun (0°02 orb) and sextile my Jupiter.
It's interesting to me that same year in which I have an exact sun-Venus conjunction in my solar return (2018) is the year that begins a new Venus phase cycle which ties in rather precisely & repeatedly with my natal chart. The nodal involvement is especially interesting.
Really it's all kind of sublime, the math and geometry of these patterns.
"So my synastry with that superior conjunction: " That looks mighty intense. Wow! Tr Saturn-SN on Sun, Tr Neptune on Moon well the Tr Jupiter looks nice.

conjunct composite Juno
So, that's something. We'll see.
Yeah, but who knows if it is worth it? I never know about Saturn. Actually our composite Venus-Return this year has DESC on composite Saturn. As much as last year`s Venus return was nice looking, this years looks significant, too, but possibly separative? Or consolidating and volatile at the same time. lol
At the very least, August weather is usually nice weather.
Yes, I`ll be in T in august (well I will be there in june and in july, too. lol, just for shorttrips, but august will be the last time that summer. Don`t know anymore exactly when though, probably not on 14th august)
Tr Sun-Venus opposite Draco Uranus exact tr Ceres exact on Tr IC on 2 Sag on my natal Amor (and conjunct Mars on 5 Sag) Tr Pluto on sun/Moon-mp and Avx exact tr DESC on Ceres exact (and my name in P`s chart) also conjunct Jupiter by 2 degree, P`s name in his chart is showing up on the tr ASC along with his Mars-Jupiter-Amor Tr Chiron on my IC and square my Venus Tr Uranus exact trine Venus (I like that, how it looks int he 5th house trining the ruler Venus) tr NN on my Saturn
"Well if you end up in T on the 14th, it must be fate," A near miss! Apparently I am arriving there on the 15th, but that is damned close especially for not having been aware before. lol
"and this has to be fun (I'm "rewriting the stars" to make sure it's fun ) " Yeah, please.
"Tr Sun-Venus opposite Draco Uranus exact"
"Tr Uranus exact trine Venus"
And again Venus-uranus. BTW progression wise I have pr Venus trine natal and then pr Uranus this year. Not a HUGE aspect, but I like it. I actually met P when his pr Venus was where my pr Venus is now. lol
"But, tr Chiron squaring your Venus, maybe better things have happened. Ugh, looking here to see when that happened for me:
I felt so horrible for the months leading up to that first square (2011). " Yeah, can`t imagine it to be too nice, and Tr chiron is going to be on my IC. Ugh. I had the conjunction many many years ago (in 1989), a few months after my paternal grandfather died, and in the middle of a period when I`ve ALMOST got into a three party situation. Interestingly a lot of socializing that year, a lot of physical contact (wanted and unwanted (not in a hugely bad way, just a little difficult to set proper boundaries) and again it seems Chiron had showed itself in terms of people, well men, wanting to touch me. lol), ultimately the crush Ive had was remaining "unrequited" (mostly I think because I chose it to be in the end), though the flirtativeness was rather nice. lol But I was just very set in my expectations of the guy being a "player" and ultimately an "arrogant asshole" and I was certainly not fitting his "type", though there was a lot of interacting for him being completely uninterested in me. lol But well then it also brought me in conflict with another girl, who was very much into him, esp. after realizing I liked him, which happened actually the months before, and she was just more determined and got together with him but in that year they broke up, not sure who broke up with whom, but albeit it was not even about him, her and me were in an almost constant "underground struggle" until I very publicly blew up (in a bus!) that year and gave her a piece of my true thinking and telling her she should not dare to ever talk to me again because she was just so far "beneath" me and I wasn`t wanting to waste my time with a "piece of narcisistic trash" like her.
It was the ONLY time that I was becoming really vulgar, well it was okay, I never had to deal with her again. lol And she WAS egocentric and narcisstic and for some reason terribly jealous of me and my friendships and connections, just set on eroding them whereever she could, and at some point I let her know I was seeing her through. But yeah not a fun time, or well yes it WAS a fun time, and then again it wasn`t. lol
Tr Uranus was heading to conjunct my Venus at that time, too.
"Same. With tr Saturn on my sun I am just bored and should thank heavens I am stabilized with my family in good health, instead of complaining about anything (but I get so bored!) " Well at least he is not acting up then. lol
