What exactly does Venus Retrograde mean? Sounds a bit exotic right? Venus, the goddess of love is looking back. Let’s get in present time. This is an inside job. I mean… the values and ideas we normally project on the world are doing a u-turn. That’s right… you’re taking you’re own council. Between July 25th and September 6th, this introversion gives us a lot to examine. It’s not just about tapping into memories of love lost and misguided connections. These people are actually showing up! Since you’ve had some time to experience other partner/relationships, the perspective may be somewhat shocking. Have you really grown that much? Or have they? Only you have the answer about navigating these value oriented waters. And you’re proving yourself to yourself. Check your heart rate around them.
We can never isolate a single astrological aspect without examining what else is sharing the space in our consciousness. You could be reviewing a current commitment or almost ready for a serious one to begin. With Venus in discriminating Virgo, practicality is on the high end of necessity. When we look through a darker lens, we’re just nit-picky and critical. Impossible standards… at best. August 2nd – 4th Venus pairs up with expansive Jupiter and we want to throw caution to the wind. This is reminiscent of a spontaneous road trip. Adjusting to the psychological side of power trips (no pun intended) or dissolving them helps you move forward.
The communication planet, Mercury, assists adventurous Jupiter to help us claim more for ourselves. We find (Mars) courage to add a healthy dose of (Leo) creativity into the mix. Partnerships come in all forms. We need connection to see through and around the details of projects. Mid-August, the energizing Sun pushes us into the spotlight. Work each day on even the smallest detail of bringing yourself closer to your intentions. Keep your eye on the goal. Once Venus stations to turn direct (August 30 – Sept. 6) you’ll have mustered the courage to shine, and have a collection of pearls from the flashback. “Values” (Venus) that were only revealed by getting off course are now yours. Sometimes a detour can be a blessing in disguise.
