The Value of Venus Retrograde: The whole point of any planet going Retrograde is to bring up the issues of its domain, and in Venus' case, the primary issues are: values, priorities, beauty, love, relationships and resources. It brings these aspects of life up to the surface for everyone.
As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive & challenging, the ultimate result is usually refreshing in some way.
This energy is great for creative flow. If you are artistically inclined in any way, you will have access to an energy that may allow you to create something amazing. Dig deep and allow your Self to free-flow!
This is your Annual opportunity to release that which you no longer want to be part of your reality or your responsibility. Look to what you *Initiated* at Winter Solstice and how far you’ve progressed since then.
Mars (energy) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):This energy is GREAT!! This is good for all activity - physical and otherwise - you will feel uplifted and motivated and capable of twice the productivity as usual. Some say it’s “lucky” but it is moreso your positive attitude during this time that attracts good things to you. You will have a great overall perspective of the “big picture” and can plan accordingly.
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, than mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual.
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.
Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, along with some guidance and direction.
How do you express your individuality? Who are you? (the REAL you) Do you allow people to know who you truly are? There is no greater gift than to feel comfortable in your own skin. So many of us only see the flaws and we constantly overlook the strengths and gifts that we possess naturally. The energy this month supports the full expression of those gifts and has no tolerance for limited thinking ... unless it's limited to thinking about your Self!
