Thank you for sharing this newsletter with anyone who might enjoy it. Please note the details of a Women’s Dream Circle all day Workshop on Saturday April 4th, below this month’s article.
The planet has been particularly gorgeous this year in the evening sky and its startling beauty is the reason most cultures associated it with the Goddess of love and harmony. Venus is also associated with one’s true worth and value. Thus, she affects our possessions including money and the sensuality of the body.
Venus in fiery Aries usually presents itself in a bold, willful way. In the retrograde, we will approach love differently. It is not a good time to rope a date out of the online herd. Flirtation may be inhibited or simply unappealing. If you entered a liason with haste, you will likely re-evaluate what you want from the association. Sometimes loves from the past return. It is a good time to repair ongoing relations and to make amends for mistakes.
The movie that immediately came to mind when I considered Venus in retrograde was Stephen Soderberg’s Out of Sight. Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney steam it up in this wry twist on unrequited love. It won a magazine critic’s award for the sexiest sex-less scene in cinema history.
Venus is associated with beauty, so you can observe how any damaging cultural messages about appearance can still affect you. Adorning yourself for fun is great if it is not based on judgements. If you feel like you are having a bad hair day at the seventh grade dance, you are right on-time for examining your values. A female athlete or prominent female leader may be in the news with some sort of setback.
Your tastes come from a different perspective at this time, so “retail therapy” doesn’t work very well. After Venus goes direct you may wonder why you liked your purchases and return them to the store.
These 6 weeks can be a positive phenomenon. Our viewpoint is simply different, therefore unfamiliar. Our energy is not radiating out; we are absorbing inward. You can have healings about love if you retreat and cultivate a connection with yourself. You can define which social connections and personal presentations are genuine, and which are artifice. Build your self-esteem from the inside and after April 17 enter the direct motion cycle with a lot of love to give.
Women’s Dream Circle Workshop
We will take a whole day to go deeply into dream- time. We will have individual sharing with feedback from the group, and also some experiential exercises for working with night dreams you have journaled.
I will help to integrate the messages from your psyche with your current Astrological influences. Each person’s wisdom is honored and power is fostered. All you need to bring is a record or memory of a few dreams. No experience with dream-work or astrology is necessary.
