Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2022

2022 Mercury Retrograde Cycles of Reflection

As we look to our regular Mercury Retrograde (MRx) passages (which always occur about three times during any given year) we have additional timeframes to be acutely aware of due to other inner planet cycles of reflection that will intertwine along with them.

Understanding Mercury Retrograde and what it actually is meant to positively do for anyone is wise timing is everything wisdom to always take into consideration for our planning and scheduling needs. These recurring astrological cycles are mistakenly overly associated with fear and frustration, which absolutely is not the reaction we are ever meant to have with them.

Mercury Retrograde is always first & foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.

~Sharita Star

Read that last statement again.

The only reasons Mercury Retrogrades “trip up” anyone is that:

One:most people are unaware it is in affect because they have never been introduced to the value of astrology, and naively choose to make initiations for intended long term success during them. 

Two: those who are aware of it are fooled into believing they should fear it every time is comes back around because they are simply misinformed.

If you know what not to do, and most importantly, what you absolutely can do under these reflective, recharging, reassessment and ultimate “time out” periods: you will always be in the energetic flow of Mastering Mercury Retrograde.

Before we get into when all of 2021’s cycle of reflection periods will urgently ask us to have the heads up in our calendars, let’s give you some astrological tips and tools to implement during any of them.

Why Are We Not Favored To Move Forward Under MRx? 

Mercury is our Messenger planet from above that guides all communications, thinking, mentality, movement, electronics, transportation, travel, changes, perceptions, adaptability and all exchanges of information that occur down here below.

When in Retrograde -due to the backtracking energy that is cast off from Mercury- all of the matters it watches over do not function nor move forward optimally. Precisely why, anyone is well advised to utilize these periods of time for pause, redoing, and only focus upon reworking what already exists.

Human error is always highest under Mercury Retrograde than any other time of the year. Naturally, forward thinking and planting for future success under this time is equally not well supported. 

Therefore, hold off on important decisions such as: starting a business, signing contracts, launching a product, getting married, buying a new car, engaging in any kind of new relationship, purchasing new technology, or buying a new home. None of these initiating actions will turn out well for the long-term, and if implemented under MRx, it is an astrological guarantee they are energetically tied up in faulty foundations that never have the genuine ability to sustain themselves for success.

What Are We Favored To Do With Success Under MRx?

Taking the first rule of thumb that Mercury Retrograde is a cycle of reflection, we are promised to flow with this reassessment time when we honor staying in this exact frame of mind. By only placing our attention upon what already exists, and choosing to wait and see about the future, our personal mastery of this cycle absolutely unfolds.

Getting out our “RE” vocabulary is one of the best ways we can discover ease and peace of mind.

Rerouting, reconnecting, reconsidering, recharging, resting, relaxing, reorganizing, researching, retreating, remembering, replanning, reframing, rescheduling, rekindling, repairing and replacing are all wonderful ways to reap the rewards of what this cycle of reflection is absolutely all about.

Mercury Retrograde is a marvelous time to work with: unfinished projects, revisiting existing creative outlets, reconnecting with old friends/former associates, reassessing existing business plans, practicing the pause, expecting rescheduling of plans, anticipating delays and set backs, having backup plans ready to go, replacing objects in need of repair (yet make sure these are done correctly), doing research, retreating away from the world, and above all, remembering to take a silent listen for oneself (extra meditation, journaling and yoga time please!).

Mercury Retrogrades & YOU! 

For anyone’s individual experience, taking a look at your Personal Forecast is always extremely favored to know the precise and specific areas of your life that each one will be seeking your reflective focus within.

As everyone collectively experiences any and all MRx cycles, each one is energetically different from the last, making no two MRxs exactly alike. While the same rules of thumb will always apply, the pulse will always cast off unique affects being Mercury is in another zodiac sign each time. Equally, the other positioning of the planets above any MRx also will relate to, also are never in the same configurations.

So, where is change and necessary reflection asking for your attention during any given year, and especially this one? Is it your income, lifestyle and vocation? Or your home/family life, wealth, and inner healing? Or how you approach your life, heart space and beliefs? What about your communication skills, relationships and hopes for the future?

2022 Mercury Retrogrades 

Wherever Mercury Retrograde lands in your life or business, know this: it is always time to sharpen the saw within it. The value of astrology is, you always have a precise map and blueprint to help personally guide you through any of them.

Each Mercury Retrograde lasts for approximately 21 days (3 weeks). All have an Approach period, (date when Mercury crosses over the degree point it will fully Retrograde back to) and a Shadow period, (date when Mercury moving forward crosses back over the degree point it began to Retrograde upon). The Approach alerts us to what MRx reflections and matters are on the way to be resolved, while the Shadow allows us to tie up the loose ends and recorrect any natural errors that occur during the Retrograde itself.

Remember, reflection and reassessment success always can be absolutely ours, but one must choose to consciously slow down. Pause. Take those deeper breaths. Stop forcing matters, and quit the grinding, societal falsified illusion of maintaining the incessant and constant busy bubble rush.

Mercury Retrograde passages come back around in our lives in their appropriate timing is everything cycles, to be our perfect opportunities to restore, recharge and reboot. Without this necessary timeout and downtime, humanity is a mere stone that gathers no moss.

2022: Mastering The Value of Compassion

Understanding a 6 Universal Year

Once we own our perspective, we will never argue with anothers’ because we understand how to respect it.~Sharita Star

Now, it would be undeniable to say that the past 5 Universal Year failed to deliver its’ complete promise of 2021’s Changing Global Truth for humanity to experience, for anyone who owns a HEART upon this EARTH. Whether or not one has noticed, our global connectivity most certainly has changed its’ channel of the truth, no matter how “back to normal” one equally believes things are or are not: as our 5 Universal Year comes to another layered in uncertainties close, just like 2020 undeniably did.

What 2021 has asked humanity to deeply accept, is it has permanently changed everything. There simply is -if one honestly chooses to OWN and stand in their NOW to have WON- no longer the previously existing “normal” to go back to. One does not ever go back in a 5 energetic year, whether a universal or personal one. There is only moving forward with irreversible change, and having to adapt accordingly. 

What now awaits upon the next 6 Universal Year horizon for 2022, is beginning to find peace of mind with the permanent changes that just unfolded during 2021. 2022 will now distinctly ask humanity to be “Mastering The Value of Compassion.”

Our abilities to hold space for others will be completely unprecedented as they will be called upon.

It will be quintessential to keep our personal vitality clear and energetically well-oiled, so we can continue to do this LOVE to EVOLVE compassionate calling soul work without becoming physically exhausted, mentally overwhelmed or health compromised.

A 6 Universal Year shifts from what we have been witnessing in 2021 concerning global truth connectivity across the world that has forever changed for humanity. Now it is time to focus upon coming together, seeking to understand before being understood, and being reachable and teachable enough to always discern both sides of any given situation at hand before making any decisions for the common good. 

Not only will compassion, understanding, discernment and the practice of gratitude be absolutely required: 2022 will equally focus upon connecting to the very values surrounding our closest relationships, luxuries, financial stability, securities, legalities, beauty, nature and families.

As the New Year begins, any HEART will resoundingly notice, the opening gates of 2022 will seek to capture one’s compassionate attention right away in order to embrace the alarming humanitarian need for healing the divide energies that will continue to cascade and absolutely elevate all the more intensely across our EARTH in even more harrowing and polarizing ways.

Humanity was pinned against its’ very self in the myriad of confusion that circulated from information, persuasions, false prophets, authoritarian power figures, and manipulations, as 2021 undeniably promised would unfold for the collective who did not choose otherwise to stand in ultimate awareness to become the keen observer concerning the truth. Those who stood in neutrality that regularly took their SILENT LISTEN, did not fall into the deceptive trap that was laid for humanity to collectively become all the more caught up within.

As we look to the very warnings and solid advice we had to remain reachable and teachable before we entered 2021, those who did not heed this past year’s forecast, will be paying a severe price in 2022, if they will equally choose to ignore its’ very theme: Mastering The Value of Compassion.

The Pratice of Gratitude in 2022, No Matter What

Another important point is the very need once again to remember all throughout 2022, is to practice gratitude. As the collective energies will be absolutely spreading fear upon fear surrounding the energy of all that will be presented in what is in LACK, the only way to combat this is to shift to giving gratitude for what we already have in order to allow attraction to still flow to us. This year will most certainly bring to anyone’s attention how very much Ben Franklin’s wise statement will be profoundly witnessed: “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” 

2022 is a universal year to be extremely prepared for. Mentally. Emotionally. Physically. Financially. And over all else: Spiritually. If you have all these components and give gratitude for what you have daily, there is no other way through but to witness the thrive versus the survive within the uncertain times ahead in one’s soul certainty. 

Why does 2022 ask not only for compassion, but to master the value of its’ energy? 

The 5 Universal Year planetary ruler of 2021, Mercury, will pass the baton to Venus -who takes over to wayshow and guide us to successfully work within a 6 Universal Year. It is through Venus’s very principles that now show us how we can tap into the knowing of seeking to understand before being understood; thoroughly examining all angles of a situation before deciding; giving gratitude for what we already have; and the mastering of our compassion is what will undeniably be required to navigate it. 

Those who allow the principles of Venus to grant them the value they absolutely need, will be an all the more important part of the healing the divide current during 2022, and will undeniably feel the need and harnessing of the compassion necessary as human experiences will unfold to find solutions for.

Aside from being known as The Idealist planet, Venus’s natural energy is quite known to be extremely favored to bring in balance and justice. Her ultimate wishes are for harmony to prevail and in the case of humanity’s now, to become restored after Mercury has left a whirlwind of changes to pick up the understanding pieces of. Family, legalities, relationships, money, values and once again: compassion for all of them is how Venus channels her gentleness and simply wants peace as she is more than the fair judge.

As we have already understood from the beginning of our current “Roaring 20’s” decade, the last 2 digits of the whole year have an additional message and via Chaldean Numerology: an equal karmic mystery to strongly take into consideration. As we look to the presence of the “22” composing 2022, we find we are looking at a Master Number, that of ‘Submission ~ Caution.’ 

Master Numbers always hold us to great responsibility. In 2022, humanity will be asked to distinctly master a many things in order to find they can thrive, versus merely survive. 

22, Submission Caution | Chaldean Karmic Mystery 

22 Linda Goodman’s Star Cards

“22 is symbolized by the ancients as “a Good Man, blinded by the folly of others, with a knapsack on his back, full of errors.” In the image he seems to offer no defense against a ferocious tiger which is about to attack him. It’s a warning number of illusion and delusion. It indicates a good person (or entity) who lives in a fool’s paradise; a dreamer of dreams who awakens only when surrounded by danger, when it’s often too late. It warns of mistakes in judgment, of placing faith in those who are not trustworthy. It represents exercising caution and watchfulness in both career and personal matters. The karmic obligation here is to be more alert, to curb “spiritual laziness,” and develop more spiritual aggressiveness- to realize your own power to change things, to prevent failure by simply ordaining success. When this personal responsibility is recognized, practiced, and finally mastered, the 22 person can be in control of events, no longer blinded by the folly of others, and will see ideas achieved and dreams realized.”  ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

In what you seek to understand and draw upon your compassion for in this New 6 Universal Year of 2022 Humanity: keep an eye out for those ferocious tigers, up the ante concerning your spiritual aggressiveness, and cast away any spiritual laziness you many have holding you back from seeing any plausible illusion and delusion surrounding you. It’s not too late to no longer be blinded by the folly of others. It’s time to rise up and proclaim you are Mastering The Value of Compassion.

Further Breaking Down 2022: Understanding the Underlying 2’s & 0

2022 as a 6 Universal Year, is equally rare as the individual digits composing it, are all the same, minus the 0. Numerology sees this as a more than powerful and pay extremely close attention energy, as we absolutely need to understand the very nature of the 2 itself. If you are also Seeing Aligned Numbers these days, check out what they really mean!

2 energy is lunar guided via The Moon. It instinctively pulls us into the realms of what we are feeling, favors we utilize our emotional intelligence in response versus reactions, value our abilities to nurture and nourish, and make sure we take any worry and precisely shift it to the space of concern for attracting rightful solutions as any natural challenges in life may arise. The 2 appreciates all of what our imagination is able to grant us, yet this will never work amicably from the space of worry: which is merely imagination out of control with no direction to go in.

2 energy equally is extremely focused upon our home and family life. These will become all the more important for humanity to be in keen attention of, as the expression “Home is where the heart is,” can easily become a powerful mantra for 2022’s calling for healing as well.

The 0 in the midst of the three 2’s is regenerative forces in play via Pluto. As we work all the more closely with our home and family, we will see there are very strong pulses of transformation surrounding them, allowing us to awaken to the very value and especially the entire perspective of the wealth concerning the very structure and foundation they provide for our lives.

Aside from the need to bring compassion into our family and home life, humanity will also notice they will be doing a lot of relocating in 2022, to connect to and ultimately rediscover, “There’s No Place Like Home.” What home means to humanity, is about to find out, it has a powerful rebirthing process it will need to embrace.

Why 2022 isn’t a “Hitting the Ground Running” New Year

Venus Retrograde 26 to 11 degrees Capricorn,
19 December 2021 to 29 January 2022

Anyone expecting to ring in this New Year with the “old normal” excitement, push to grind one’s way to new success in energies that normally fizzle out about mid January when the typical blues arrive, and keep any intended plans for beginning, launching and “starting anew,” let’s just erase ALL that out of anyone’s expectant head now. 

Venus who is “in charge” of 2022, has already been in serious reflection leading up to Christmas, and will continue to do so for the entire first month of the New Year. It is highly important to deeply understand now, this is a New Year that distinctly asks to start it off in an undeniable calling for a SILENT LISTEN.

While we can find amicable forward motion to embrace in 2022, it will not be favored until this necessary cycle of reflection that Venus will be engaged in as it begins, has completed. 2022 will finally “feel” like it is actually moving forward once February arrives: YET, this will still even be somewhat “delicate.” We can expect, once her Retrograde Shadow work is over by 02 March, that the year can truly start to take flight. Nevertheless we must remember, it is not in any way, shape or form, working from the “old normal.”

Venus Retrograde in Capricorn: 19 December 2021 to 29 January 2022

Approach Begins: 17 November 2021, Shadow Ends: 02 March 2022

Once again as it is in need of being repeated: in our 2022 New Year, be in the absolute know that the ruling planet of this 6 Universal Year is amidst a more than powerful cycle of reflection as she is handed the planetary “now you are in charge” baton. While Venus Retrograde only reoccurs about every 18 months, her reflection cycles precisely point to taking a critical and absolutely necessary “timeout.” 

Whether it be from a planet like Venus, or our more frequent recurring passages of reflective time like Mercury Retrogrades, they are all to be taken seriously and remain in full awareness of concerning our well-intended plans. Like any other year, our choices and decisions for their future success made under any inner planet retrograde are merely extra amplified in errors, unstable foundations and complete confusion. Honoring reflection, observation, review and returning to what already exists: are extremely key practices in order to truly thrive during any of these “timeouts.” 

As both Approach and Shadow passages precede and follow any Retrogrades themselves, our astrological advice here is to absolutely properly prepare for reflection under the Approach, and then sort out what is necessary moving forward under the Shadow. Depending upon where they equally will personally play out in our Personal Forecast, will be essential to discern for our individual experiences, and as always, ultimately allow us to be armed in our soul certainty empowerment to work with them all as amicably as possible, as uncertain times promise to carry on.

The Timing is Everything Rhythm Story of 2022

Venus as the natural way shower guide of our 6 Universal Year, spends 23 weeks in the elemental energy of Earth during 2022, which is just under half of its’ 52 week span. This will begin within the very leadership earth energies of Capricorn while in Retrograde, and conclude the year having touched upon every single sign within the Zodiac, before returning to the leadership earthen energies once again of Capricorn to conclude 2022.

The focus upon Venus spending the majority of her time in EARTH energy during 2022 is all part of the valuable reassessment, attaining of harmony, balance and compassion for it. Venus will ask humanity to work with grave understanding in these areas in order to not only unite the divide, but ideally heal what has become severely broken within the very HEART space of humanity itself: all across the globe.

What is an interesting layering in other reflective cycles pattern, is how each time Venus is visiting within any Earth Sign during 2022, we see other inner planet Retrograde Cycles overlapping them, from both Mercury and Mars. Mercury Retrograde Cycles also will spend valuable time in reflection in all three of our Earth Signs during 2022. These important reflective passages will be also extremely connected to what will be in powerful realignment concerning the stability of our planet, and once again, the very need to be completely exercising Mastering The Value of Compassion.

Moving Universal Month to Month Within 2022

Within the flow of any Universal Year, is a specific month to month energetic pulse that we always have at our forecasting fingertips, to further understand how collective human experiences are favored to emerge. 

As we begin 2022, it simply beckons for an incredible SILENT LISTEN from Humanity in order for it to deeply understand: there is nothing more than honoring reflection in order to reap success. 

During the 1st month of this 6 Universal Year as we are under the realms of both Venus and Mercury Retrograde (14 January to 03 February) alongside it, we also bring in the 3rd layer of a 7 “inner work” universal month as we see will unfold.

This same 7 universal month will cycle back later on in 2022 for October. As you will notice below, the same energetic patterns repeat for February mirroring November in the 8, and March mirroring December in the 9, via how the forecasting math computes within 2022. 

January 2022 is an absolute “all bets are off” kind of energy. Once the 1st Full Moon as well arrives upon 17 January, the remains of the month equally reflects in a natural waning phase though 01 February. 

Sit Super Tight Humanity. Buckle Up. Stay Grounded in Your Compassion. And be extremely well-prepared for this quadruple reflective energies ride especially past 17 January.

OWNing Our NOW to See How We Will Have WON

So we move into our 6 Universal Year of 2022 not only being prepared to be mastering the value of compassion, but equally ready to attain our collective soul certainty, as we will pause to seek to understand before being understood: all as we practice our gratitude for what we already have. 

The energetic promise of maintaining equilibrium to balance humanity distinctly channels from it’s guide, The Idealist planet of Venus during 2022. Underlying with the tone of the Master Number 22’s forewarning of exercising our ‘Submission – Caution,’ we are able to rise up in our Warrior abilities to become spiritually aggressive and curb any spiritual laziness. This most certainly will only be attained as one absolutely remains both reachable and teachable. 

Humanity -on both a global and personal level- are you ready to own your compassion, master it, and work in your most spirited and grateful presence yet that 2022 will absolutely require to maintain, in order to thrive and not just merely survive? 

This more than realigning and seeking to bring balance and peace of mind back to any willing HEART in this continuing Great Awakening EARTH Shift already sees the answer only lives within you. Where the free will of choice, is always, completely, up to you. 

May Safety, Sovereignty and Spirit Always be with You in the LOVE to EVOLVE. 

Connecting the Dots Further

Looking Back Upon Our Global Perspective leading up to now:

8 Universal Year 2015 asked us to reap the harvest, find the recognition & accept the reward. Only practicing responsibility, patience & honor allowed this stabilizing energy to flourish.

7 Universal Year 2014 asked for the “soul homework” the inner work and required reflection in order to heal. Solitude, listening & remaining in the eye of the apparent storms called to be heard.

6 Universal Year 2013 called for understanding, compassion, adjustment, and balance. Justice, judgment & harmony asked to be aligned and embraced.

5 Universal Year 2012 brought forth blossoming, new information, rapid movement and permanent changes. Communications, mass changes & no going back unfolded for humanity.

4 Universal Year 2011 formulated roots that secured the initiations of 2008 within a foundation. The unexpected, breakthroughs & over coming obstacles called to all.

3 Universal Year 2010 burst open those seeds, aligning in new knowledge and education. Beliefs, philosophies & growth were stimulated on a global level.

2 Universal Year 2009 nurtured those seeds within it’s emotional and sensitive energy. The home, family & sense of co-operation called across the board.

1 Universal Year 2008 Started ANEW, “if it was NEW it was for the WORLD,” The Life Force Focus, manifestations, beginnings, and all channels of birth. Fresh Loyalties formulated via seed planting within it’s creative, heartfelt and initiating energy.

Mastering Venus Retrograde in Capricorn, 2021-22

Redefining the Value of Integrity & Leadership

Venus Retrograde in Capricorn 19 December 2021 to 29 January 2022

As we will experience the close of 2021 and open the first month 2022, it will be a powerful time that will have us in a more than resounding request to honor reflection in our continuing EARTH HEART Shift. 

Unlike her neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since our Idealist planet took some necessary time off. The last Venus Retrograde cycled 13 May to 25 June 2020 in the sign Gemini.

Upon 19 December 2021 in Capricorn at 5:36amEST, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Venus that will conclude 3:46amEST upon 29 January 2022. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde. 

What makes a Venus Retrograde different from Mercury?

All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Venus allows us to relate one on one, formulate legal agreements, be compassionate, find understanding, secure our values, intake our money, enjoy our pleasures, find our beauty via the arts and music and cherish our peace.

Both Venus and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Venus every 18 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of.

Venus Retrograde in Capricorn

It is more than fair to say as Holiday 2021 is engaged, it will gravely call to take heed of our Capricorn area of life, starting at 26 degrees. Venus on a normal journey through Capricorn enjoys constant, sincere, protective and pursuit of excellence energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as she’ll be under review. 

Being reflection, research and review are in order- initiating plans during retrograde for future harmony and balance are best to be avoided. The energetic pace will be limited and shy, where developing self-reliance and eliminating unwanted restrictions will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to awaken and attain peace equally will feel there is an undeniable coarseness and difficulty in complete lethargy that will encompass our collective earthly channels.

Equally once 2022 officially begins, Venus herself is also “in charge” of the entirely new 6 Universal Year. To say the New Year gets off to a more than bumpy start due to her begin Retrograde all of January, is quite the understatement as ultimate awareness will be extremely necessary to navigate its’ more than intense opening pulse.

26 Partnerships & 11 A Lion Muzzled – A Clenched Fist | Linda Goodman’s Star Cards

Reexamination of our domestic life, the simplest of pleasures, and our worldly dispositions are also highly favored during Venus’s time in Capricorn as we take to valuing being accountable and owning up to our responsibility where The Goat structures our individual lives amongst the collective. Whatever plans one may have to engage in within these realms, they will find these also not work out as originally intended, and back up plans will be necessary to utilize instead.

The Reflective Journey from 26 to 11 degrees Capricorn

As Venus begins her Retrograde stationed at 26 degrees Capricorn, this energy calls for us to seek to understand ‘Partnerships’ and the need to walk away peacefully from emotional conflict concerning any relationship for requiring reflection within our lives. We complete the reflective cycle as Venus stations at 11 degrees Capricorn, seeking to conclude our reflection stories with the serious request to unite with emotional response versus reaction in relationship to whatever needs further repair concerning the emotional divide in our lives as we will wish to apply this masterful attention in order to avoid the natural pitfalls of ‘A Lion Muzzled – A Clenched Fist.’ 

As we look to the deeper wisdom and connectivity to Numerology, the Chaldean Karmic Mysteries of the 26 and 11 degrees beginning and end points have fair warnings to share with us.

What we truly have here with both of our starting and ending Venus Retrograde points, is more than an AMAZING opportunity for healing emotions concerning all relationships/partnerships. Equally we will notice this will extend especially into our family wounds that wish to come together in absolute accountability and responsibility to mend any fears not formerly faced. The erasing of False Evidence Appearing Real to Face Everything And Rise energies are at our collective fingertips to embrace.

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, 25 January to 03 February 2022

Just when one may think they are reflecting enough, the final stretch of Venus’s cycle of reflection is absolutely energetically charged up by the additional reflection passage that arrives of Mercury Retrograde. Our Messenger planet Mercury begins his first Retrograde of 2022 upon 14 January in Aquarius, and by 25 January, enters Capricorn crossing back over Venus’s stationed starting point at 26 degrees Capricorn precisely as she turning directs at 11 degrees Capricorn by 29 January.  

Energies will sway at this time to becoming overly unimaginative, rigid, narrow, suspicious and sardonic. People will be compelled to re-examine all the more what will already be channeling in slowness, limitations, lacking optimism, flexibility, and denial of clarity concerning this very area of our lives. 

How to Successfully Work with Venus Retrograde

This next cycle of review and redo from Venus is quintessential in such a universal new year as 2021, but more importantly, what 2022 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value during the finale weeks of our 5 Universal Year of 2021’s Changing Global Truth at this pivotal time in history, as we cross over into the 6 Universal 6 Year of 2022’s Mastering The Value of Compassion, its’ very ruling planet of Venus is in some heavy and very serious reflection mode. 

Venus offering her reflection from the troubled partnerships 26 degree point at start in Capricorn, backtracking to turnaround at the more than polarized 11 degree point in Capricorn indicates an extremely challenged and very emotional time of reflection as well as coming to an melancholy understanding of what needs healing attention for humanity at large. 

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of the value we place upon worldly integrity, those in positions of authority and power, the structure of our career/workplace, the sense of duty and responsibility, and our distinct ability to seek to understand any and all of these areas before being understood. Coupled with the riveting path of permanent changes we have already personally experienced all throughout 2021 to cross over into 2022, these promise to be austere and sobering moments humanity will witness connecting to what we are meant to be understanding the most to be a greater part of the entire whole. December 2021 and January 2022 energetically resets us like a father figure will demand we learn from the experience: taking our lessons learned with us in a new sense of absolutely serious realignment. 

The “RE Rules” Under Venus Retrograde: What To Reflect Upon

One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review. 

1. Beauty All beauty improvements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, you hate your new hair cut, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.” Plastic surgery is a huge no-no during this cycle.

Simply AVOID buying luxurious items, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.

2. Money/Finances You’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoid any kind of luxury purchases is highly favored, as well as watching over-spending. Money investments with the intention of significantly increasing its’ value, can be complete future failures.

Venus Retrogrades essentially become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain from the seller who practically gave it away. However, the buyer may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if the purchase involves those luxurious items. Past debts may equally surface, and these should be absolutely addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect cycle to focus upon solutions requiring your research.

3. Relating to Others Relationships, especially brand new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Beginning a new romance, marriage, or any kind of business contract/agreement are not particularly favored courses of action.

4. Your Personal Forecast Wherever 26 degrees to 11 degrees Capricorn rests in your natal birth chart is the precise are of life that you’ll see an ultimate renovation going on 19 December 2021 to 29 January 2022. Equally, potential natal planets that will aspect Venus’s Retrograde journey are important to understand to know how to make proper choices avoiding critical mistakes over this sensitive cycle. An ounce of prevention, is a sure pound of cure. As Ben Franklin used to say, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

The Approach and Shadow of Venus Retrograde

Every Retrograde passage has a “preview of coming attractions” as the planet crosses over moving forward, the exact degree point it will backtrack to called the Approach. We’ll start to notice as Venus crosses over 11 degrees Capricorn upon 17 November what’s going to be in full reflection by 19 December, as we properly prepare under her Approach.

Every Retrograde passage has a “ironing out the retrograde wrinkles” time until the planet crosses over, moving Direct, the exact degree point is starts retrograding upon, called the Shadow. Whatever decision may have had to happen by no other choice under Venus Retrograde will have the opportunity to smooth out the fabric wrinkles as our correction and Shadow work commences from 29 January through 01 March 2022, when she will cross back over 26 degrees Capricorn moving forward precisely back where she started Retrograding upon 19 December.

Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2021

While 2021 promises to be more than another innovative and shock factor year that affects Changing Global Truth across the board, we have plenty more of continuing to Awakening the Unexpected energy that distinctly marked 2020 as clearly foretold.  If the memo of Becoming Friends With Simplification was not already answered to over the previous year, one is not going to like the repeated calls than 2021 will be undeniably still making to do so.

2021 will be a year where -if one is not in full respect of honoring Mercury Retrograde and become acutely aware to when it is in affect- people will be challenged by change and those truly unprepared to step back in reflection, will only work with turbulent energy they otherwise will have wished they avoided. 

As we look to our regular Mercury Retrograde (MRx) passages (which always occur about three times during any given year) we have additional timeframes to be acutely aware of due to other inner planet cycles of reflection that will intertwine along with them.

Understanding Mercury Retrograde and what it actually is meant to positively do for anyone is wise timing is everything wisdom to always take into consideration for our planning and scheduling needs. These recurring astrological cycles are mistakenly overly associated with fear and frustration, which absolutely is not the reaction we are ever meant to have with them.

Mercury Retrograde is always first and foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.

~Sharita Star

Read that last statement again.

The only reasons Mercury Retrogrades “trip up” anyone is that:

One: most people are unaware it is in affect because they have never been introduced to the value of astrology, and naively choose to make initiations for intended long term success during them. 

Two: those who are aware of it are fooled into believing they should fear it every time is comes back around because they are simply misinformed.

If you know what not to do, and most importantly, what you absolutely can do under these reflective, recharging, reassessment and ultimate “time out” periods: you will always be in the energetic flow of Mastering Mercury Retrograde.

Before we get into when all of 2021’s cycle of reflection periods will urgently ask us to have the heads up in our calendars, let’s give you some astrological tips and tools to implement during any of them.

Why Are We Not Favored To Move Forward Under MRx? 

Mercury is our Messenger planet from above that guides all communications, thinking, mentality, movement, electronics, transportation, travel, changes, perceptions, adaptability and all exchanges of information that occur down here below.

When in Retrograde -due to the backtracking energy that is cast off from Mercury- all of the matters it watches over do not function nor move forward optimally. Precisely why, anyone is well advised to utilize these periods of time for pause, redoing, and only focus upon reworking what already exists.

Human error is always highest under Mercury Retrograde than any other time of the year. Naturally, forward thinking and planting for future success under this time is equally not well supported. 

Therefore, hold off on important decisions such as: starting a business, signing contracts, launching a product, getting married, buying a new car, engaging in any kind of new relationship, purchasing new technology, or buying a new home. None of these initiating actions will turn out well for the long-term, and if implemented under MRx, it is an astrological guarantee they are energetically tied up in faulty foundations that never have the genuine ability to sustain themselves for success.

What Are We Favored To Do With Success Under MRx?

Taking the first rule of thumb that Mercury Retrograde is a cycle of reflection, we are promised to flow with this reassessment time when we honor staying in this exact frame of mind. By only placing our attention upon what already exists, and choosing to wait and see about the future, our personal mastery of this cycle absolutely unfolds.

Getting out our “RE” vocabulary is one of the best ways we can discover ease and peace of mind.

Rerouting, reconnecting, reconsidering, recharging, resting, relaxing, reorganizing, researching, retreating, remembering, replanning, reframing, rescheduling, rekindling, repairing and replacing are all wonderful ways to reap the rewards of what this cycle of reflection is absolutely all about.

Mercury Retrograde is a marvelous time to work with: unfinished projects, revisiting existing creative outlets, reconnecting with old friends/former associates, reassessing existing business plans, practicing the pause, expecting rescheduling of plans, anticipating delays and set backs, having backup plans ready to go, replacing objects in need of repair (yet make sure these are done correctly), doing research, retreating away from the world, and above all, remembering to take a silent listen for oneself (extra meditation, journaling and yoga time please!).

Mercury Retrogrades & YOU! 

For anyone’s individual experience, taking a look at your Personal Forecast is always extremely favored to know the precise and specific areas of your life that each one will be seeking your reflective focus within.

As everyone collectively experiences any and all MRx cycles, each one is energetically different from the last, making no two MRxs exactly alike. While the same rules of thumb will always apply, the pulse will always cast off unique affects being Mercury is in another zodiac sign each time. Equally, the other positioning of the planets above any MRx also will relate to, also are never in the same configurations.

So, where is change and necessary reflection asking for your attention during any given year, and especially this one? Is it your income, lifestyle and vocation? Or your home/family life, wealth, and inner healing? Or how you approach your life, heart space and beliefs? What about your communication skills, relationships and hopes for the future? 

2021 Mercury Retrogrades 

Wherever Mercury Retrograde lands in your life or business, know this: it is always time to sharpen the saw within it. The value of astrology is, you always have a precise map and blueprint to help personally guide you through any of them.

Each Mercury Retrograde lasts for approximately 21 days (3 weeks). All have an Approach period, (date when Mercury crosses over the degree point it will fully Retrograde back to) and a Shadow period, (date when Mercury moving forward crosses back over the degree point it began to Retrograde upon). The Approach alerts us to what MRx reflections and matters are on the way to be resolved, while the Shadow allows us to tie up the loose ends and recorrect any natural errors that occur during the Retrograde itself.

The Intensity of 2021: The Need for Maintaining Mental Health 

What we astrologically notice here is Mercury, when asking for our reflection, will only be reviewing and redoing within the very signs that are governed by the element of air. Air guides the intellectual nature, mental state/frame of mind, ideas, information and all matters upon the planet that of course, move via air itself. Mercury as the natural way shower guide of our 5 Universal Year, spends 27 weeks in the elemental energy of Air during 2021, which just over half of it’s 52 week span. Once again, this points us to how very much well oiling our mental planes and intellectual means must absolutely be more than properly prepared for.

2021 favors the mind can be calmed by the choice of remembering how to properly BREATHE.

Tapping into the mysteries of Lexigrams, we can clearly spell out the truth here: BATHE THE HEART RATE, BEAT THE HATE and ever wisely from that grounded state, BE THE EARTH EAR.

Mastering 2021: Remain Grounded, Sovereign and Practice Self-Care

In closing, there is no question we have the greatest responsibility on our human hands we have ever had in mankind’s existence to remain accountable to this year in full awareness to be more than mindful of our timing is everything scope. 

Success can be absolutely ours, yet it is the deeper understanding that in such a fast paced year overall, simplification and moderation nevertheless will continue to be an important part of our “new norm.” If any HEART upon this EARTH is not willing to accept profound global change in 2021, they will not find they are going to have any kind of seamless time in how the energetic pace and pulse of the year will undoubtedly unfold.

Venus Retrograde in 2018: Redefining the Value of Power and Alignment

As we experience Autumn 2018, it will be a powerful time that will have us in the ultimate request to honor reflection.

Unlike her neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since our Idealist planet took some necessary time off. The last Venus Retrograde cycled 04 March to 15 April 2017 in the signs of Aries and Pisces.

Upon 05 October in Scorpio, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Venus that will conclude upon 16 November, moving back into Libra by 31 October. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde.

What makes a Venus Retrograde different from Mercury Retrograde?
All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Venus allows us to relate one on one, be compassionate, find understanding, secure our values, intake our money, enjoy our pleasures, find our beauty and cherish our peace.

Both Venus and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Venus every 18 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of.

Venus Retrograde in Scorpio 05 to 31 October
It is more than fair to say as Autumn 2018 arrives, it will be bring us a effusive calling to take heed of the earlier Scorpio area of life, starting at 10 degrees. Venus on a normal journey through Scorpio enjoys passionate, highly sensitive and proud energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as she’ll be under review.

Being reflection, research and review are in order, initiating plans during retrograde for future harmony and balance are best to be avoided. The energetic pace will be inconstant and short-lived, where purification of desires and revaluation of experiences will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to concentrate on the essentials equally will not be attained without difficulty.

Reexamination of luxury and extravagance is also typically favored during Venus’s time in Scorpio. Whatever plans one may have to engage in within these realms, they will find these also not work out as originally intended.

Venus Retrograde in Libra 31 October to 16 November
The final stretch of Venus’s cycle of reflection brings her to recharge what needs to be reset concerning simplicity, partnerships and tender affections within the very last degrees of Libra until she goes Direct at 25 degrees.

Energies will sway to becoming overly sentimental, dependent and too refined verses the norm of harmonious, sociable, charming and dignified. People will be compelled to re-examine the theme of susceptibility and idealization of romance to better understand what is the genuine value of this very area of our lives.

How to Successfully Work with Venus Retrograde
This next cycle of review and redo from Venus is quintessential in such a universal new year as 2018 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value of Feeling the Feminine at this pivotal time in history, Venus offering her reflection from the initiative 10 degree point at start in Scorpio, backtracking to turnaround at a discriminating and analysis 25 degree point in Libra indicates a profound and very powerful time of rebirth as well as coming to an aligned understanding for humanity at large.

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of the value we place upon worldly power, other people’s resources, wealth, sexuality, and our distinct ability to seek to understand before being understood. Coupled with the sensitive path we are personally on all through 2018 to connect to what we are meant to be nurturing the most to be a greater part of the entire whole, October and November energetically reset us from the core in a new sense of alignment.

VenusRx2018.SharitaStarThe “RE Rules” Under Venus Retrograde: What To Reflect Upon
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie.

Mars Retrograde in 2018: Redefining the Ambition of Humanity

MarsRx2018.SharitaStar1As we will experience Summer 2018, it will be an important time that will completely cast us in the ultimate request to honor reflection.

Unlike his close neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since The Pioneer planet took some necessary time off. The last Mars Retrograde cycled 17 April to 29 June 2016 in the signs of Sagittarius and Scorpio.

Upon 26 June in Aquarius, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Mars that will conclude upon 27 August, moving back into Capricorn by 12 August. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde.

What makes a Mars Retrograde different from a Mercury Retrograde?
All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Mars allows us to take action, be courageous, manage our anger, become motivated, arrive at conclusions, make life happen, find our willful force, and work with our strengths.

Both Mars and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Mars every 24 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of. Being reflection, research and review are in order, initiating plans during retrograde for future success and fulfillment are best to be avoided.

Overall, the energy of a Mars Retrograde takes what we typically experience under Mercury and amplifies it tenfold. Whatever plans one may have to embark upon new adventures, they will find these are interlaced with delays and errors.

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius 26 June to 12 August 2018
It is more than fair to say as Summer 2018 arrives, it will abruptly bring us to a demonstrative calling to take heed of the earlier Aquarius area of life, starting at 09 degrees. Mars on a normal journey through Aquarius enjoys unusual, original, independent and dynamic energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as he’ll be under review.

The energetic pace will be dispassionate and unruly, where theoretical understanding concerning humanitarian experiences will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to concentrate on personal touch and feeling equally will not be attained without difficulty.

Energies will sway to becoming overly nervous, revolutionary and inflexible verses the norm of experimental, friendly, innovative and scientific. Examination of what makes us truly tick within these degree points of Aquarius is also favored during Mars’s reflective time within The Water Bearer.

Mars Retrograde in Capricorn 12 to 27 August
The final stretch of Mars’s cycle of reflection brings him to recharge what needs to be reset concerning practicality, conscientiousness, ambitious and persistent motivations within the very last degrees of Capricorn until he goes Direct at 28 degrees.

Energies will sway to becoming irritable, unimaginative and exhausted verses the norm of efficiently controlled, sustained, and vigorous. People will be compelled to re-examine the theme of prudence and responsibility to better understand what is our genuine desire within this area of our lives that always favors efficiency.

How to Successfully Work with Mars Retrograde
This next cycle of review and redo from Mars is quintessential in such a universal year as 2018 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value of Feeling the Feminine at this pivotal time in history, Mars offers his reflection from the conclusive 09 degree point at start in Aquarius -backtracking to turnaround at the too trusting 28 degree point in Capricorn- indicates a profound and very powerful time of resetting our practical needs for humanity’s overall benefit as it asks us to simply surrender to letting go of what no longer works with courage by our side.

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of what allows us all to take action within our lives, asking for us to find humility, consideration, and patience as we pause in lieu of the larger picture. Coupled with the sensitive path we are personally and collectively on throughout 2018 to connect to what we are meant to be nurturing the most to be a greater part of the entire whole, Summer 2018 energetically resets the future goals of the world. This critical cycle of reflection aligns us in grave responsibility to become like a well-oiled machine that is able to properly express self-reliance and acute awareness within our lives.

The “RE Rules” Under Mars Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s energetic and abrupt inner planets, Mars’s influence grants action, motivation and desire wherever his dynamic energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie.  Mars affects the collective’s drives to do something- as well as our aggression, impulsiveness, exertion, and our abilities to adapt courageously in our lives. As he decides to not “look where he is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of his energy to be up for hardcore review.


What to Be Extremely Mindful of During Mars Retrograde…

1. Monitoring Our Speed. Take a much slower pace with everything you do. Being in a hurry under Mars Rx undoubtedly attracts the potential for accidents, penetrating situations and conflicting outcomes to occur. The use of sharp objects, explosive devices and fire of all kinds are forewarned to be carefully monitored, for extra care is definitely needed concerning them for this passage.

2. Managing Our Anger. It will be very “easy” to fall to this choice of the free will. But feed and fuel the fires of rage, conflict and impatience under Mars Rx, and you’ll be ever sorry that you did.

3. Practicing Our Patience. Choosing this practice will greatly improve your results. This virtue is the most valuable one we can utilize at all times in life, but especially what is currently moving within Aquarius and Capricorn.

4. Owning Our Ability to Let Go. Mars is equally -aside from activating our motivation and drive- the planet that promotes conclusions, finalization and endings. Know that these will be showing up in powerful ways from the early Aquarius and late Capricorn areas of your life. Choose to resist them, and you can expect a struggle that you will look back upon and wish you had made a different decision.

5. Watching Our Initiations. Just like Mercury Retrograde cycles (which our Messenger will overlap 26 July to 19 August), we are wise to carefully monitor anything we are starting for long term success under this much more intense cycle of reflection and review.

6. Knowing Our Personal Forecast. Wherever 09 degrees Aquarius to 28 degrees Capricorn rests in your natal birth chart is the precise area of life that you’ll see an ultimate renovation going on 26 June to 27 August. Equally, potential natal planets that will aspect Mars’s Retrograde journey are important to understand to know how to make proper choices avoiding critical mistakes over this sensitive cycle. An ounce of prevention, is a sure pound of cure. And as Ben Franklin used to say, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

7. Understanding Summer 2018’s Eclipse Season. Even more energetic pulse will be circulating throughout our summer season as we will experience three eclipses. What wishes to commence for the long term from 12 July’s Solar Eclipse in Cancer will find it will be riddled with delays, errors and setbacks until September arrives. By 27 July, just as the year’s 2nd Mercury Retrograde will also begin, Mars Retrograde will conjunct our Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, truly casting us in one of the most powerful requests for reflection we have seen in quite some time.

Leading up to 11 August’s Solar Eclipse in Leo, these two weeks will be extremely erratic and energetically off set, absolutely advising we initiate nothing for our future, and get on with our past. The means for clearance and completely letting go will be very up close and personal, and should we choose to deny this, we will find we are in a state of utter and complete frustration. Learn more on how Feeling the Feminine is all part of the lessons 2018 brings to us all via our lunar cycles overall.


The Approach and Shadow of Mars Retrograde
Every Retrograde passage has a “preview of coming attractions” as the planet crosses over moving forward, the exact degree point it will backtrack to called the Approach. We’ll start to notice what’s going to be in intense reflection by 26 June as Mars crosses over 28 degrees Capricorn on 12 May.

Every Retrograde passage has a “ironing out the retrograde wrinkles” time until the planet crosses over, moving Direct, the exact degree point is starts retrograding upon, called the Shadow. Whatever decisions may have had to happen by no other choice under Mars Retrograde will have the opportunity to smooth out the fabric wrinkles throughout 08 October. Ironically, just as Mars’ Shadow is completing, we will be cast in another cycle of reflection from Venus Retrograde, 05 October to 15 November. 2018 is an intense year for contemplation, healing and truly taking a breather in life.

MarsRx2018.SharitaStar2What’s Really in a Word? MARS RETROGRADE
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our take action and motivating planet attaches himself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the truth of how we can reap personal rewards.

~GOT TO RESET TO A MORE MODERATE STREAM
~GOT TO RESTORE TO A MORE MASTERED DREAM
~GOT TO SORT TREMORS, EGO STORMS, TRADE RAGES TO SMARTER ROADS
~GOT TO SORT TERRORS TO REORDER
~GOT TO GREET RAGE OR DRAMA TO RESET TO A MORE DEARER TERMS

~GOT TO MERGE TO A GREATER TAMER AGREE ART
GOT TO SEDATE EGOS TO SOAR TO A MORE MODEST RESET
~GOT TO MEET AS A TEAM TO STEER A STORM
~GOT TO RESET TO A GREAT REMORSE MODE

Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
This time for reassessment within The Water Bearer & The Goat allows us to all remember what motivates humanity to become more practical on a personal and collective level. Once 27 August comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (09 degrees Aquarius to 28 degrees Capricorn) of the life will start to energetically move forward once again- restoring ambitions and desires unlike any other in quite some time.

Remember, what is deserving of being reexamined here comes from the acts of review under the retrograde. So rest and reset 26 June to 27 August, then dynamically gather up your rewards later! Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated. However, what is ultimately meant to be simplified, is where your courage will be required to receive what you’ll have been patiently waiting for.

Mercury Retrograde and Your Timing in 2018: 5 Things You Need to Know

MRxDatesBusiness18.19“As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a strong believer in the importance of cycles. You’d better try to understand them, because all of your timing and often your luck is tied up in them.” ~Former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca

There are regular periodic cycles that astrology always promises will change our times, so aligning peace of mind is absolutely necessary to better understand the benefits that can be brought to our lives. One such cycle is Mercury Retrograde, the astrological offering for review, reflection, redo and release.

Who is Mercury anyway and what does “Retrograde” mean?
Mercury -also known as The Messenger as our closest inner planet from above- is in charge of our movement, electricity, communications, thinking, mentality, along with any and all exchanges of information down here below.

Approximately 3 times each year, he retraces his measured degrees within his current zodiac transit for about 3 weeks.

Think of a person -or in this case a mass of a planet in our Universal energy field- placing a blindfold on and then walking backwards. Now you get the basic gist of “retrograde” and it’s effects. Is it starting to make sense our actions and events just might become ultimately disarrayed as a result of this cycle?

Venus Retrograde in 2017: Redefining Humanity’s Personal Values

venusretrograde

Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

As our Winter becomes Spring in 2017, it will be a powerful time that will have us in the ultimate request to honor reflection.

Unlike her neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since our Idealist planet took some necessary time off. The last Venus Retrograde cycled 25 July to 06 September 2015 in the signs of Virgo and Leo.

Upon 04 March in Aries, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Venus that will conclude upon 15 April, moving back into Pisces by 02 April. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde.

What makes a Venus Retrograde different from Mercury?
All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Venus allows us to relate one on one, be compassionate, find understanding, secure our values, intake our money, enjoy our pleasures, find our beauty and cherish our peace.

Both Venus and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Venus every 18 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of.

Venus Retrograde in Aries 04 March to 02 April
It is more than fair to say Winter ends as Spring begins with quite a demonstrative calling to take heed of the earlier Aries area of life, starting at 13 degrees. Venus on a normal journey through Aries enjoys impetuous, unrestrained and easily aroused energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as she’ll be under review.

Being reflection, research and review are in order, initiating plans during retrograde for future harmony and balance are best to be avoided. The energetic pace will be inconstant and short-lived, where mental focus upon devotion to ideals will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to concentrate on the essentials equally will not be attained without difficulty.

Romantic adventure is also typically favored during Venus’s time in Aries. Whatever plans one may have to engage in it over late winter into early spring, they will find will also not work out as originally intended.

Venus Retrograde in Pisces 02 to 15 April
The final stretch of Venus’s cycle of reflection brings her to recharge what needs to be reset concerning emotion, compassion and understanding within the very last degrees of Pisces until she goes Direct at 26 degrees.

Energies will sway to becoming indiscriminate, abject and inert verses the norm of tender, devoted, yielding and peaceful. People will be compelled to re-examine the theme of self-sacrifice to better understand what is the genuine value of this very area of our lives.

How to Successfully Work with Venus Retrograde
This next cycle of review and redo from Venus is quintessential in such a universal new year as 2017 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value of Being the Light at this pivotal time in history, Venus offering her reflection from the regenerative 13 degree point at start of the zodiac in Aries back to the end at a connective 26 degree point in Pisces wheel indicates a profound and very powerful time of rebirth as well as healing and tremendous learning experiences for humanity at large.

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of the value we place upon human life and our united view of being here. Coupled with the independent path we are personally on to be a greater part of the entire whole, March and April energetically reset us from the core.

The “RE Rules” Under Venus Retrograde: What To Reflect Upon
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1. Beauty
All beauty improvements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, you hate your new hair cut, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.” Plastic surgery is a huge no-no during this cycle. Simply AVOID buying luxurious items, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.

2. Money/Finances
You’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoid any kind of luxury purchases is highly favored, as well as watching over-spending. Money investments with the intention of significantly increasing its’ value, can be complete future failures.

Venus Retrogrades essentially become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain from the seller who practically gave it away. However, the buyer may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if the purchase involves those luxurious items. Past debts may equally surface, and these should be absolutely addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect cycle to focus upon solutions requiring your research.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially brand new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

4. Your Personal Forecast
Wherever 13 degrees Aries to 26 degrees Pisces rests in your natal birth chart is the precise are of life that you’ll see an ultimate renovation going on 04 March to 15 April. Equally, potential natal planets that will aspect Venus’s Retrograde journey are important to understand to know how to make proper choices avoiding critical mistakes over this sensitive cycle. An ounce of prevention, is a sure pound of cure. And as Ben Franklin used to say, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

5. Appreciating Venus Retrograde Rewards
BE charitable with money, i.e. hold a fund-raiser for a great cause
DO scoop up any bargains! These are totally Venus Rx approved!
GIVE GRATITUDE for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what’s worth appreciating: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
ENJOY NATURAL BEAUTY by spending time outdoors.
TAKE IN ART & MUSIC Whether at a museum, gallery, performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it at this time.
REVISIT creative adventures already in existence, examine their progress and reflect upon ways to improve them.

The Approach and Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Every Retrograde passage has a “preview of coming attractions” as the planet crosses over moving forward, the exact degree point it will backtrack to called the Approach. We’ll start to notice what’s going to be in full reflection by 04 March as Venus crosses over 26 degrees Pisces on 30 January.

Every Retrograde passage has a “ironing out the retrograde wrinkles” time until the planet crosses over, moving Direct, the exact degree point is starts retrograding upon, called the Shadow. Whatever decision may have had to happen by no other choice under Venus Retrograde will have the opportunity to smooth out the fabric wrinkles through 18 May.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attaches herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the truth through lexigrams of how we can reap personal rewards.

Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
This time for reassessment within The Ram & The Fishes allows your understanding of the value of humanity to become redefined on a personal and collective level. Once 15 April comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (13 degrees Aries to 26 degrees Pisces) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness- restoring personal harmony unlike any other in quite some time.

Remember, what is deserving of being healed here comes from the acts of review under the retrograde. So rest and reset 04 March to 15 April, then happily gather up your rewards later! Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated, but what is ultimately meant to become simpler here, is the real value you’ll discover that is a genuine gift you’ve been patiently waiting for.
