A Time Of Transition With Venus Retrograde

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comVenus is the goddess of love, and in Astrology the planet Venus is thought to represent what we love, value and the pleasure we take in life. The zodiac sign that Venus is in at the moment of our birth, can give us clues as to how we approach relationships, as well as what gives us joy in life. In the Shamanic Astrology tradition, the natal Venus is considered to be our emerging feminine expression.

The planet Venus rotates around the Earth in an 18-month cycle. The cycle begins when it appears as the ‘morning star’ on the eastern horizon, best seen in the early morning sky. It then begins a journey around the Earth, disappearing behind the Sun for two to three months, before reappearing as the ‘evening star’ on the western horizon. As it nears the end of the cycle, Venus goes retrograde, before disappearing again from the sky, and then re-emerging once again in the early morning sky as a goddess transformed for another cycle.

This annual cycle of Venus represents the personal growth, transformation, death and rebirth that affects us all collectively. There is also a complete eight year cycle for each individual, as Venus reaches the same point in the sky, where it was at our time of birth, once every eight years. This is known as the Venus Return and is the starting point or rebirth of an individual’s eight year cycle. Often, around these 8-year time-frames, for example at age 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, and so on, there are significant life events that have more far reaching effects for us personally.

Venus retrogrades are pretty intense. We feel trapped and stuck, all things that are very highlighted right now, anyway. But if you are upset with your partner, and you lash out on them, you’ll regret it later ~ Narayana Montúfar

Earlier this week, on May 13th, Venus went retrograde in the sign of Gemini. This is the time in the cycle when what we have learned, and are ready to let go of, can finally be composted, in order to get ready for the new to emerge. Matters of the heart and our self-image, that are still wounded or cracked, can be stirred up at this time for an opportunity to affect greater healing and release before the new cycle begins. Often former lovers could resurface at this time, or old issues in existing relationships may reemerge, as well as issues around money or things that we most value come to the fore. These are points of learning and guidance from the higher self of what is up for healing and release.

The Venus retrograde is therefore a time to be introspective in matters of the heart, and self-love or self-worth. Take a retrospective look over the last three months or so. Do you notice anything that has been coming up over and over? Have you been working on healing any particular wound or issue? What has been coming up around money or livelihood? Also pay attention as to what comes up over the next month. Then go inward and ask yourself, what needs to be forgiven and released at this time? What is the most loving path forward for you? What are you ready to let go of, release and make new?

The main Venus in retrograde meaning is to consider what we love and why we love it. Since this happens in Gemini, the themes of communication, writing, networking, friendships, and sibling dynamics will be up for review ~ Jennifer Racioppi

Venus is conjunct to the Sun on June 3rd, and then she is reborn as the morning star. At this point, we all are made new. It is an opportunity to live more aligned with our heart and with greater self-love. The more we consciously work to complete the cycle properly, the more significant our transformation can be.  Understanding what sign and house your own natal Venus is in can provide further guidance and insight through the cycle.

Lastly, this year, when Venus rises as the morning star, she is in the sign of Gemini, giving this cycle an overtone of Gemini or the ‘Rainbow Goddess.’  Gemini will bring a playful, magical element to Venus over the next 18 months. She will encourage us to be creative, playful, and to see the magic in life. She will awaken our inner child and bring us communication and information from the higher realms, helping us expand our minds and be attuned to our own inner wisdom.
