Venus has now stationed direct, which marks the end of 1st retrograde planet during this retrograde season. The planet of love, money & desire was put on pause in Gemini, which forced us to look at any flawed communication within our relationships or possible financial restrategizing over the past 6 weeks. Venus retrograde allowed us to take a step back and reassess our approach to our relationships and financial situations and take a good hard look at the areas that could use some improvement.
Now that Venus is catching back up to speed in Gemini, our love and money sector is activated, which means we’ll find the words to articulate the issues that we’ve unearthed during Venus retrograde. Additionally, Gemini’s curious energy sprinkled over Venus gives us the extra push of confidence in any romantic pursuits that have been building up throughout retrograde.
Don’t forget that after every retrograde comes a two-week shadow period where we will still feel its lingering effects. During this “retroshade” period we’ll be tying up all the loose ends of the lessons we’ve learned. We’ve pulled out issues that were boxed and shelved and brought them to light so we could analyze and better understand them. Retroshade is the end of the deep examination process where we reorganize those things and either put them back into their boxes or place them where they actually belong.
Venus direct gives us the clarity and motivation to approach the issues that have been revealed to us during retrograde with a fresh perspective. Where in your life have you been holding yourself back from the pursuit of pleasure? What actionable steps can you take now to finally go after what you desire?
