Venus moonwalks through the signs of Scorpio and Libra October 5th for aprox 6 weeks. November 16th she goes direct.
This only happens every 18-20 months. However, the 8 year cycle of Venus is pretty significant though. So take a moment to reflect back to October 8-November 19, 2010. Go ahead- scroll back in your timeline and camera roll. How does this relate to where you are currently? Similar themes may occur! Relationships, finances, creative projects.
Let's recap what will happen with the energy around this retrograde.
Some key things to know here:
•Venus represents women, love, relationships, money, gifts, art and beauty.
•The sign of Scorpio is dark and mysterious and is associated with sex, money, death, power, transformation and self analysis.
•Libra loves balance and harmony and all things beauty.
Basically Libra is the heavenly heartthrob and Scorpio is the celestial sexpot 😆 (I totally stole that but it's too good to not share)
Venus has been in Scorpio since September 8th. You may already feel a strong connection to your inner desires or hidden motivations.
Get ready bc this retrograde is a time for deep learning! Perhaps about love and/or sexuality or even money and power. Your ability to create something new and bring it to fruition will be tested!
This retrograde has 2 phases. Venus begins as an evening star but as she positions herself direct she will be in conjuction with sun in Libra.
The first half of this phase is all inner work. Receptive and gentle energy is needed. Put old issues to rest and bad behaviors to bed. The second half is when temptation will arise. Venus will bring out the warrior in you! Reawaken your passions and greet new opportunities with love!
Tips on embracing this energy:
▵ Not the best time to make a major commitment. Scorpio has hidden agendas and can be secretive.
▵ If a new relationship begins, it is based on emotion right now. Wait until Venus enters Libra to reevaluate. Scorpio is emotional. Libra is more rational.
▵ Past lovers may re-emerge.
▵ You may feel the need for more alone time.
▵ Lots of seductive energy will be present
▵ You may be confronted with issues around power and control
▵ Female power is eminent
▵ Making a major purchase or investment isn't advised. Keep close tabs on your finances. A good time to handle debt or to set a plan to save.
▵ Great time to find second hand bargains or to recycle items
