Venus went Retrograde last Wednesday for 40 days and 40 nights.

✨Pro tip – this is a bad time to make big investments, change your appearance, or get into a new relationship you want to be longterm (great for a fling, though. 😉)

I repeat:

Don’t cut all your hair off or do anything drastic to alter your appearance.

Take time and be patient about major investments or cash outlays. If you still want the thing after Venus goes direct, DO IT.

It is a good time to revisit/review/renew love relationships.

If you marry while Venus is Retrograde, you invite a certain amount of Shadow Work into your Union. While that’s the case with all relationships, it’s intensified and probably more challenging to work through under this transit.

And, it can also be a time of challenge for relationships. Crisis is fertile ground for breakthrough.

🌸Indulge in pleasurable experiences.

🌸Treat yourself as your most beloved.

🌸Tell people how much you love them.

🌸Clean and redo your home and altar.

🌸Spend time in or near the water.

🌸Create art, beautify your surroundings, dress up in a way that makes you feel good.

Venus cordially invites you to work with her to further your awareness and bring your Shadows to Light. You can do so willingly, or kicking and screaming. The choice is yours.
