Venus, the planet associated with love, romance, beauty, money, material possessions and personal values is now retrograde. She made her tap dance backwards on October 5th at 3:05 pm EDT at the 11th degree of Scorpio. Venus stations direct at the 25th degree of Libra on November 16th. We will be experiencing these energies at least until December 17th.
From an astrological perspective, retrogrades motivate us to review, revisit, refine and resolve challenges that are holding us back from progressing in the area related to the planet involved. All the `re’ words apply here, like, re-member. Many of my clients have been saying that they feel nostalgic for long ago romantic connections. Even the stock market, as of this date, is `rebooting’ as we’ve witnessed tremendous losses just since October 5th.
Venus retrogrades are rare. The planet of love spends less time retrograde than any other: only 41 days in it’s 584 day synodic cycle. And, THIS particular Venus retrograde is rarer still, because it’s connecting with the mad-cap professor energy of Uranus in Taurus. The last time Venus retrograde in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus was in 1938. Time for a reboot in so many ways.
The energy in our charts most directly affected will be the fixed signs; Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. In order to clarify and identity your individual charts I am offering a workshop at Santosha on October 25th at 7:00 pm. You'll learn how to cope with the energy of the retrograde...and how to `preserve' your relationships and your values...
You’ll learn from me and from each other as each of your charts are analyzed. Reserve your spot here! ($30) or $25 for NCGR members
