Rich in karmic lessons and challenges, retrograde cycles of the planets should be regarded as Cosmic callings for slowing down and taking a look behind, making some adjustments in the matters and areas of life related to the respective planet. Instead of launching new projects and getting involved in new commitments, this is the time of re -accessing, re-thinking, redoing. It is the time of Venus retrograde now.
Venus Retrograde – The retrograde cycles of Venus
In Astrology Venus represents our intimate and other types of relationships, the way we are connected with others and the way we draw people: lovers, friends, associates – in our lives. Also, it is associated with beauty, art, balance, harmony, love, pleasure, desire, fairness, diplomacy, finances, possessions, values, security.
During this autumn Venus moves retrograde on the 5th of October and turns direct on the 16 th of November. At the beginning of the current cycle Venus transits Scorpio, then on the 31st of October revisits Libra. It will turn direct on the 16th of November at 25° of Libra. It will re- enter Scorpio on the 2nd of December. Her journey through the two signs brings energy shifts and tasks in line with the character of Scorpio and Libra.
The retrograde cycles of Venus have to do with evaluating the real worth and value of people and things in our life. The experiences from which we come to conclusions later, are not always pleasant. However they bring us to a maturer approach, making us more aware of our repeating patterns in our relationships (both romantic relationships and other forms of social contacts), attitudes of spending, securing ourselves, etc. This enables us to assume more responsibility for our lives and over a long term will improve significantly its quality.
On an outer level, during the retrograde cycles of Venus we can experience a slow down in our relationships and financials. Some of the relationships and sources of income can even end. However, if this is the case, considering the karmic nature of these cycles, it is a sign that instead of making efforts to restore the status quo, it’s time to move forward. (Advancement is likelier only when Venus is direct again, after making the soul-searching and adjustments necessary to attract better things in our lives.)
Venus Retrograde – Venus in Scorpio
Ruled by Pluto, Venus in Scorpio is very erotic, seductive and enigmatic. She also is a good secret- keeper. Due to her intuition she is able to get quickly under the surface of relationships. She is an all or nothing maximalist in everything – including heart matters. She wants total commitment, absolute loyalty and her feelings can get obsessively intense. When emotionally involved, she is deeply attached and persistent. These traits can be great assets (especially by the side of a partner who appreciates them) but they can make her very vulnerable. Her downsides are jealousy, vindictiveness, paranoia, power – games, manipulation.
The current retrograde cycle will give enough opportunity to understand the dynamics of our relationships and the role we play in them. It also will enable us to distinguish the healthy, nourishing interactions from the toxic ones. Thus we can get rid of our energy drainers. Other themes of this period may involve other Scorpio related themes, such as change and transformation, our attitude towards money, finances, insurance, secrets, taboos.
The Venus retrograde in Scorpio can be very intense. Certainly the way they play out will depend on the areas of life they influence in your birth chart, your awareness as well as on your decisions made with your free will. However they have certain general traits and patterns. By understanding them you can reduce the drama and you can use the coming 40 days for soul-searching and learning about yourself. A comprehensive reading can give guidance how to make the most of it. Feel free to contact me!
