VENUS RETROGRADE- SIX WEEKS OF
BAD HAIR DAYS
Venus turned around when it was barely into the sign of Virgo and spends most of this period in the sign of Leo. The positive side of Leo is warm, active, risk-taking, and romantic. The unskillful side of Leo is prideful, childish and embarrassingly self-centered. Leo loves to show off and to receive praise. Isn’t attention and acknowledgement from others what makes early romance feel so good? Leo is also prone to drama, which can engulf you at this time.
Venus moving forward in Leo is like Reese Witherspoons’s character in “Legally Blonde”. She is outgoing and shameless about seeking what she wants. She knows she is adorable and feels completely deserving of the best. At first you feel superior to her W.A.S.P. princess superficiality. You find out that she is generous and brilliant and end up really liking her. With the off-kilter retrograde influencing us we can feel the opposite- insecurity. You may be thrown back to adolescence, when we are first concerned about how appealing we are. Recall the “Fresh breath is a priority in my life” days depicted in the movie “Sixteen Candles”. If you feel awkward, love the Geek within you. If your relationship feels dead, rent “American Pie” and laugh together. If you are feeling discouraged, listen to Sly and the Family Stone or 10,000 Maniacs. Everyone is unique and completely eccentric! Celebrate that fact.
Venus retrograde may conjure up old loves like the Ghosts of Christmas Past. You may bump back into a flirtation that never got off the ground before, or project past dynamics from a major relationship onto your current partner. (not fair!) You may find yourself magnetically attracted to someone on the basis of acting-out that you thought you had way outgrown. It is all material for self- awareness. Listen to music from times of past love experiences, the wonderful and the horrible. Let your right brain bring up your imprinting so that you can consciously clear your energy field of outmoded expectations. Breathe and be grateful for your growth. Venus direct wants to be passionate and enjoy all your interactions. Let Venus retrograde teach you to be compassionate, especially with yourself.
