ASTRO READINGS WITH RUBY
The Goddess of Love is turning Retrograde early today, and she will be going backward in the Cosmos through April 15th. Venus in Retrograde can be challenging but also can bring good things once you get through it, but it can be frustrating to get there. This cycle only happens about every 18 months, so it’s a pretty big deal once it does come around. The following themes surround Venus in its Retrograde cycle, love, envy, passion, lust, pleasure, beauty, desire, and attraction. Relationships can learn all about unification or separation. When it comes to love Venus in Retro. has it all. So during this time, we have an opportunity to review and heal our love relationships with our creative energy, beauty, pleasure, passion, and values.
Venus in Retrograde History
The last time Venus was in Retrograde was back in July through September of 2015, and it caused some challenges around love and money. But Venus rules over all that is considered feminine like women, so things like art, fashion, luxury, sweets and sugar, and entertainment come into focus more now. Food can actually become a pretty big deal during this cycle, as sudden food cravings can show up that usually involve carbs and sugar. This also IS NOT a good time to start a New Relationship or to get an expensive makeover, as these things just don’t seem to go well under Venus in Retrograde.
Venus in Retrograde is about learning what we truly value.
This Retrograde cycle gives you the opportunity to meet up and possibly get back together with an old flame, if you really want to, (so watch for the ex’s to start showing up) and even if you don’t want to, you might be surprised by an old flame who tries to reconnect with you. If you broke off from someone back in the summer or fall of 2015, there’s a good chance of you reconnecting again. Also, your old relationships might start to pop up in your mind and you might suddenly start thinking about what went wrong or right. So during the spring any previous relationships that might deserve a second chance, might just get one.
This Venus in Retrograde is in Aries, the sign of aggression, passion, and reveal! If you are cheating or trying to hide an affair or another relationship, you might just be found out during this time. It’s not a good time to do any kind of plastic surgery, or to do something different with a beauty treatment like getting a new hair color, stick to what you have been doing and all will be well. Big makeovers should be approached after April or even into late June really, as Mercury is in Retrograde as well in May and early June. And it’s not a good time for a Wedding with Mercury and Venus both in Retrograde in later April, which could mean you are remarrying the same person for a second or even third time from a past life, and that may not go so well.
There is no way to escape the healing effects of this Venus Retrograde cycle, during the next 6 weeks, we’ll explore how we relate to each other, but also how we relate to ourselves (Aries), and what compassionate love feels like (Pisces), and the importance of using our imagination when working on healing our main relationship wounds (Venus Conjunct Chiron in Pisces.)
Venus is pure feminine energy
Woman especially are going to really be feeling this energy, and it can be very frustrating and there can be issues in any of your friendships or relationships with females now. Choose your battles wisely!
The Zodiac sign that Venus is in during it’s Retro. phase is very important, and as I mentioned above Venus is in Aries and also will be traveling back through the imaginative and idealistic waters of Pisces for a short time. Venus in Aries is ruled by Mars and also is transiting Uranus now, and this can cause some unexpected issues and upsets, depending on where Venus is traveling through your own personal Astrology “Birth” Chart. It is different for everyone as we all have unique individual Astro “Birth” Charts of our own. So pay close attention to where this does fall in your own chart because this is where you should be focusing over the next six weeks. It’s time to tackle any negativity or challenges you may be having in the areas of your life this aspect falls in because you will be able to start and establish new habits and put up some strong boundaries there.
Venus rules over money too!
So during this time, there can be some challenging financial situations. If you are waiting on money in any way, it might be delayed. If you are going to make any new investments or large purchases, or if you are signing financial contracts during this period try to be extremely cautious. It’s a good time to review and revise financial statements and budgets.
Hollywood is going to be set ablaze by this fiery backward energy and you will hear all about the breakups that go down, but this affects all of us common folk as well, we just aren’t broadcasted on the news or are in the spotlight. So you may hear about breakups in your own inner circle. Any business or personal relationships can be tested and challenges can present themselves and endings will happen for some folks. Many relationships that should have already been over with will finally end during this period.
Using Venus in Retrograde to your Benefit
The special Retrograde cycles that all the planets go through happen for a reason, and the Universe has its reasons. Mainly, to give us a chance to redo and rethink our relationships, and our financial situations. It can also cause some trouble so that we will address the problems we have been ignoring and heal the issues that need to be healed. So no matter what area of your personal Astrology “Birth” Chart this aspect falls in, be it the area of health, family, love, career, spirituality or any part of your life, use these next six weeks as a time to HEAL and to give yourself second chances where they need to be applied.
