Past loves showing up out of no where? New loves showing up and it feels like you’ve know them forever? Finances seem all out of wack? What seemed to be steady and consistent now proves to be unstable? New opportunities knocking on the doors and windows? Yep, that would be the work of Venus in Retrograde. And I tell ya, She can be a REAL B*TCH!!!!!! That is if you don’t understand how to capitalize on her Power…..:-)
Venus goes retrograde about every year and a half, for about 6 weeks at a stretch. When in retrograde, her energy can become turned in on itself. This doesn’t mean it becomes invisible or undetectable – in fact, it can become much more intense for the person experiencing it! However, retrograde energy can be harder to bring out and us while we are in the matrix. It is more fragile and vulnerable out in the open air, as if it has no skin on. It can also be harder for the person to perceive and work with this energy objectively in themselves, since their experience of it is so subjective and close to their inner sense of self.
This energy is truly COSMIC.
Relationships may undergo a lot of stress during the retrograde period, sometimes falling apart if the people can’t come to more a workable agreement. Conversely, Venus retrograde can bring a new relationship into your life, especially if you’ve been running from Love. Venus retrograde can be a time when the weak links in a relationship are strained and sometimes break. Issues that have been swept under the rug and avoided may surface and demand to be dealt with. Undercurrents of hostility or frustration can erupt into full-blown conflict. And if the relationship has been running on fumes or just hanging on by its fingernails, Venus retrograde could create a “make it or break it” situation. Lurking problems may have to be dealt with or choices made to bring the relationship to an end. Either way, retrograde Venus is tempting us to reconsider our approach to relationships….ALL of our relationships. Even our relationship with money.
While in retrograde, financial affairs might also require a fresh strategy in planning and budgeting. You’ll notice a change in income or cash flow (which could be either an increase or decrease). Creative projects may need to be redone or approached from a different direction, as new inspiration is brought to the surface. Remember Love is a CREATIVE FORCE. This could be the PERFECT time for you to ACT on your passions. To make your HOBBIES your CAREER.
Although this time can seem a bit mind boggling, the energy is just right for reflection and exploration of the internal or unseen side of all situations. By gaining more awareness of the dynamics and shifting of the powerful energy, you are in a better position to make choices that are in your best interests and that move you toward growth and healing.
Venus remains in retrograde station from May 15, 2012 thru July 31, 2012 so…….BE AWARE!!!!!!
