Venus is going on retrograde next month!
I will (possibly) be creating an information deck on Venus Retrograde soon but I thought I’d first give a heads up.
This Venus Retrograde will happen between 𝟭𝟭° 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝟮𝟲° 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘀 𝗖𝗮𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗻. As such, it will affect planets in Cardinal Signs (𝗔𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀, 𝗖𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗿, 𝗟𝗶𝗯𝗿𝗮, 𝗖𝗮𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗻), especially in the above-mentioned degrees.
I’ve already been seeing the effects of this Venus Retrograde in action with some of my clients (and myself). Because Venus tends to be people-pleasing, and it care about people liking or not liking them, this Venus Retrograde will surface themes around 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 (especially if you are a people pleaser). On top of that, ideas of worth and deservedness- which also means 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲- would be highlighted. (Trust me on the last one, because I’m seeing the money and value part in myself already =x)
Because Venus is in Capricorn, the particular Venusian theme to look out for is around ‘𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗲-𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲’ 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗶𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁. Questions that may pop up:
“Do people like me for who I am or just who I seem to be based on my achievements or what’s outside of me? “
“If I want to look good and for people to like me, what do I need to compromise? What do I need to be nice about? Is this align with me?”
“In the way I relate and form relationships with others, how can I be polite and but hold my boundaries so that I don’t lose face?”
Since Venus rules the sign of Libra, I’d also say that 𝗟𝗶𝗯𝗿𝗮 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗲𝘁𝘀 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗴𝗹𝘆.
The interesting thing about this Venus Retrograde is that it’s not going to be a Venus Retrograde alone. 𝗠𝗲𝗿𝗰𝘂𝗿𝘆 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗴𝗼 𝗼𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝘄𝗲𝗹𝗹, 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗹𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗩𝗲𝗻𝘂𝘀 𝗥𝗲𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗻. This means that the theme around likes and dislikes will also be 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲: How do I communicate that? How can I establish relationship commitment in my dealings with others via communication?
If you are keen to understand more about what’s going on and would like some coaching around it, 𝗗𝗠 𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗮𝗻 𝗔𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻!
I’d also be launching a year-end ritual, which would be a good way to end and cut off any ineffective habits in the way you deal with relationships. Do sign up for that!
On top of that, fellow Astrologer, YQ is also running a class on Venus Retrograde. Since I’m not putting together anything around that, I thought it might be interesting to join her class and see what she says! From what I hear, it’s pretty hands-on, step-by-step and meticulous!
