Met a guy on a dating app just before Venus Rx, and he is like the lover of my dreams: Libra sun, Neptune rising, moon in sagittarius. We’ve been hooking up but i dont know whyy (Ok, i know why) i cant stop thinking about him (thats so not me tbh, im usually super chill). He has Jupiter on my ascendant, his mercury on my moon, his personal planets sextile most of mines. And we can talk for hours about evolution, politics, emotions, travel, men, etc. i still feel weird, like this is a past life thing but it feels… Read more »

with eris and vesta and prometheus up in my 8th maybe i should encourage those nearest to me to don flame retardant suits. i might go full aries. i don’t think i’ve ever done that.

i used to try for perfection, now i’m thinking that, since thats impossible, i might as well make that mess.

So Venus is retrograding into my 2nd house, opposite my 8th house Aqua Sun, and I’m certainly feeling that already! SO many money issues –running out of money from self-destructive over-spending, which I usually never do, housemates paying rent late for the first time ever since I’ve lived here, and delays of getting my paycheck at my job…… ATM card locked for potential fraud twice this month, but I called and sorted that out in addition to earlier this month having had a ‘merchant compromise’ of my card and having to get a new debit card –nightmare changing the card… Read more »

Ha, yeah, not enjoying Pluto transit my 7th so much, it recently transited my Cap Venus too but has moved beyond it by degree now..
Saturn transiting on my Neptune in the 5th has actually been really good and helpful. I’m usually much less practical about romance.
Neptune, however, is transiting conjunct my Pisces Moon so that’s been a thing…..it’s always something, though, right? 😉 just have to try to get on with life….

No returning lovers – not a one! Instead I’m amusing myself by comparing charts, Oracle abuse etc for the vague crush, the Leo Rockstar. There is nada in our charts. Nothing! No interesting Mars-Venus napalm synastry, no lovely trines or conjunctions – nothing. His sun is in a t-square w Mars and Neptune. He ought to be completely bats but he is SO sensible. The closest aspect I can find is his moon-Saturn conjunction is bang on my Sagg SN yet there is no feeling of ‘past life’ with this guy. I think he must be Cap rising, we are… Read more »

oh my. Echoes of 99 and 09? 1999- got married. 2009-2010- he cheated and left and got divorce finalized. What echoes for now? Do not know what is going on with love life. Definite echoes of past with former flame.(not hubby). What will this Venus retro bring? I almost don’t care though because I’ve been working on career and me. I guess anything that does not fit, just won’t.

Got the hair cut and semi wash 2 weeks back. Digging the mahogany vibes. Man, I woke up sick yesterday and got progressively worst. Despite wearing 4 layers and cuddling under 2 feather duvets my body wouldn’t stop with the ‘yuck’ rushes all night. I haven’t been to bed yet. It felt like a ‘dark night of the soul’ vibe last night – because my head throbbed I couldn’t sleep. So at 4am I got up to start cleaning. Nearly 11:30am and the study is done – all I need to do is the loungeroom for today and finish a… Read more »

Hello, fellow Leo rising – a very important question!
If it’s any help – I’m using the Venus retro to experiment with a bunch of stuff to do with my looks – makeup, hair products, skin care etc. I’m in a renovation phase atm – fitness, nutrition, work practice (a la Pisces scopes) and a new hair ‘look’ is on the list. However I won’t be making any big change until Venus is well and truly out of shadow.

Hi Chrysalis – yes! I too have been experimenting with my look. Re-evaluating just about everything! New eyes – recently put a few new outfits together from things I already own. But, I really, really need a haircut. It’s damaged and prone to breakage right now, a Leo Rising no-no-no-way. 😉

Wish I knew the ins and outs of Venus retro. I reconnected with my ex two months ago (so I think that’s far away enough from venus retro to be real). But only in the last two days has it gone full steam ahead – emotionally. (From the start of venus retro) So from what I read, any forward (or backyard movement) in romance during retro shouldn’t be considered as accurate. I’d love to know what yawl think xxxxx

Reconnected with an old flame during venus retrograde in summer 2007–biggest mistake of my life. Seven years of drama, chaos and hell. Slow down the “steam ahead” during venus retro, Ella. Listen to your gut and don’t commit to anything until venus retro is over. And ask yourself why he was an “ex”–why did you break up the first time?

Good point. I’m hoping it was just youth that broke us up. I was 23 and now I’m 42. We reconnected before Venus retro so I’m clinging to some hope. But yes, agreed – no big commitments until Venus gets back to normal.

Thank you x

I don’t like rules! They often attract the opposite reaction than what they intend.
And I am interested in astrology because it is an intuitive art, not because it is a science. So in my contrary way I will suggest that it is entirely appropriate that an ex reconnect scenario pushes forward when a venus retro is on. It is natural. Perhaps consider that if you were transplanting a plant they would need a retro to establish their roots. They have established roots before, so this is a review?
Let us know how you go.. 😉

I reconnected with a lover about a month and a half ago, after not seeing him or being in any contact for 8 months. I think it was within the shadow of this Venus retrograde, but not sure…. It’s been ok so far, about the same as before, though a better rapport in some ways, being with him again. I’m keeping my eyes open during this Venus retro, though, trying to keep it on an even keel, no actions or decisions to move it forward or end it during this time, just a wait and see……holding my breath a little,… Read more »

I agree with Sphinx! I also think it depends a lot on what house Venus is transiting in your chart right now as to how you’ll feel it most strongly. I’m also skeptical of putting too much emphasis on shadow zones, there’s a weak effect for sure but nothing that should stop us all living life. I’m also reconnecting with an ex right now, it had been in both our heads for months before Venus hit the retro zone, perhaps it was just the push we needed? Maybe it’ll go wrong again, who knows but it’s happening and it’s happening… Read more »

I DO know that he has Mars in Scorp at the same degree as I have Scorp in Venus. Mystic wasn’t kidding about the sexual napalm effect!

So, the mars retrograde back in 09-10. That was the last time I saw the multi-libran Virgo who, after sending him a confession about my long-held feelings (after I was safely in the next country), I could finally let go of at a deep level. Weird huh (as in not weird) : the way a full-hearted acknowledgment of one’s position is so liberating I’ll be in the same city as him soon. Its a big place, and the chances are small. But you know what chance is like. Perhaps, an an opportunity to add the full stop to the final… Read more »

That sounds incredible! Have you seen the movie ‘Tracks’? Based on a true Australian story of Robyn Davidson going on a 1,700-mile trek across the deserts of West Australia in 1977 with four camels and her faithful dog.: http://m.imdb.com/title/tt2167266/ National Geographic followed her journey at the time, and published photos about the expedition. I absolutely LOVED it — both what was said and what wasn’t said. It’s based in her book of same title. Google ‘Robyn Davidson 1977’ for epic original pics from 1977, as well as film photos.
