The lover of peace, romance, money, and harmony now enters her own balancing it all out 42-day retrograde period. One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, her influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. As Venus decides to now to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of this transit while in Scorpio back to Libra to be slightly thwarted.
Venus affects the collectives’ values- as well as our earning potential, money, romance, and our ability to tap into the feminine. We are highly advised to be aware of insatiable, jealous, unscrupulous, and self-indulgent reactions over these next few weeks. On 07 November, Venus dips back into Libra- where through the 18th- the energy shifts to being aware of overly refined, dependent, extreme sentimental, and wildly flirtatious affections.
Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or initiating a marriage is especially not favored. However, this as a time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize exactly why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!
All kinds of creative endeavors involving initiations in beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery), tend to not go over well. Have you any already underway or unfinished creative projects, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to completion under this passage.
Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions on for the long term until after 18 November. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. Releasing at this time what is no longer of value to you or seemingly “worth it,” is also favored. So, if you’ve got a money situation that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus.
Time well spent under Venus Retrograde:
*BE charitable with money.
*AVOID buying luxury items.
*DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus-approved!
*LOOK to what you already own and who you already know.
*REASSESS what is worthy of appreciation: keep it or toss it!
*FALL in love all over again- or let it GO!
*VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and value of it at this time.
The 13 deg Scorpio to 27 deg Libra piece in the natal birth chart points on a personal level to where a reflective approach is best applied over this time. This area of the life is where Venus asks us to pause- and to be alert to our operating from any kind of carelessness. The more REview that is done in this area- will ensure the optimal flow and compassionate blessings to flourish handsomely after 18 November once Venus goes Direct again. Should you have natal planets placed here or have aspects affecting these houses, you’ll feel this passage more intensely.
Keep in mind the approach and shadow of this Venus Retrograde. Be aware that decisions made as Venus began her approach -on 05 September while going Direct from 27 degrees Libra until REtrograde motion began on the 08 October- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 18 November, the shadow will prevail until 21 December when Venus returns to 13 degrees Scorpio, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde.
Once again, those RE’s of any REtrograde period, such as RElax, REflect, REdo, REassess -you get the picture- can be applied. With the uncanny messages that Lexigrams are here to provide for us, (the tale within a name or title by poetically phrasing its’ anagrams), we also learn that VENUS RETROGRADE is no exception to the rule. Just like any woman, she sure has a lot to advise to us:
*GO TO SURE ADVENTURES TO RESTORE
*GOT TO REDO A TREASURE
*GOT TO GO AND REUSE TO RESTORE
*GOT TO USE A STRONGER URGE TO REVERSE
*GO TO A RETARD TO REROUTE
*GREAT TRADER ENDEAVORS ARE VAGUE- SO DON’T DO ONE!
*TRADERS GO TO RENOVATE SAVED REVENUES
*TRADES ARE TENSE TO DO OVER A VENUS RETRO ERA
*REVENUES ARE TO UNDERGO A REVERSE AND RETURNS
*REVENUES NEAR GREED SEE SURGENT OVERTURNS
*GO TO A SOUND GENEROUS URGE
*GO ON…GO TO NATURE AS ONE SURE RESTORE
*GO TO A GRANDEST GREEN GROUND, A GARDEN
*GO TEND TO AN OVERDUE REGARD
*GOT TO SURRENDER TO REENTER AND REGROUND
*GO TO NO REGRETS, AND SEND OUT GRAND REGARDS
*TONGUES NEED TO RESONATE A TRUE REASON
*NO GRUNTS NO GROANS, DO NOT GO TO DANGEROUS REVENUE ADVENTURES
*GO ON AN ART ADVENTURE
*GO TO GENERATE AND GREET GRAND GESTURES
