I wanted to mention that the planet Venus is officially stationed retrograde (backwards) from today 3/4-4/17. This happens once every nineteen (19) months. During this six-week period it is considered to be a very fated time. Because this time around Venus is not making any major planetary aspects, it actually can be a very lucky time! The fixed star Alpheratz is the only planetary influence and it is considered to be very lucky in astrology. Basically, any tough aspects surrounding a “normal” retrograde will be softened under this influence- phew! Venus is the Goddess of love and beauty, after all.
The planet Venus rules a lot of things, but it’s mainly about love and money. Particularly at this time, these are the two areas that will be under scrutiny for everyone. You may notice that during this time former situations/people may come back into your life , and money issues may arise to be dealt with. How do you spend your free time? How do you spend (or not spend) your money? Who do you spend most of your time with and are you truly happy? Who and how do you love and is that really working for you? These are all major questions that will be at the forefront during this six- week period as Venus makes her backwards trek.
As I mentioned above, this is a fated period. Giving and receiving love can be more difficult as you navigate the confines of your own heart and soul. Old friends or lovers may come back into the picture to help you sort out karmic issues you may have surrounding love and abundance. The way that you recognize and deal with these topics will most definitely cause you to pause and think.
Relationships started at this time may have a very magical quality to them, and will likely serve some sort of deep purpose. (This applies to both friendships and love relationships). Just make sure you are not being hasty, follow your heart but make sure you take your head with you! This is a time of introspection and reassessment. Whomever or whatever you are interested in during this time will bring you joy and pleasure if handled properly. Destiny is at work here! Soul connections can come seemingly out of nowhere.
Venus does not always have to be about relationships with others, this also speaks about the most major relationship you have- which is relationship to yourself! First and foremost make sure you are giving yourself the love and affection you deserve! You can use this time to improve how you feel about yourself, how to love yourself more. Think about what makes you happy, what you love to do, what makes your soul shine. Use this time to reflect on patterns you have regarding love and money. Find the reason(s) for issues in current or past relationships. Work through them. This is all Venus Retrograde.
Love & Light,
