Venus is going retrograde on July 25th, after a long stay in the Leo energies of radical self-love, Venus took a step into Virgo (the priestess), right there with the star Regulus which is the king star. That is a lot of “whoo hoo” right there.
Whilst Venus spends the vast majority of this retrograde period in Leo, she actually shifts direction in Virgo. In this detail lies hidden the key to her entire retrograde journey: it’s all about the nuances, not the bigger picture.
This energy is going to help you further organize your life, mainly your home, office or immediate environment. Others may see you as a hard worker, but really you are only doing what you feel must be done at this time.
7/13 ~ Mercury (ideas) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams): This energy stimulates your creative process. You may be tempted to daydream but it is better to use that energy to investigate the deeper meaning of your current process.
There are brilliant things going on now, though. Absolutely wonderful. We have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction trining Uranus AND we have the Moon's north node traversing the Super Galactic Center (SGC), which adds to the magic and mystery of this amazing time.
