Venus Retrograde effects vary from the sudden desire to reconnect with an ex to urgent-feeling beauty and fashion reforms. But should you indulge?
Dear amazing Mystic,
I have a somewhat frivolous, non-life-threatening-but-still-important-to-me question regarding Venus retrograde. All my life I wanted to have violet hair. I own violet wigs and tried purple extensions which looked nice, but always felt fake somehow. I want the real deal, but its all no use- since I’m a rather dark brunette.
At some point, I was looking forward to old age, when my hair would be naturally white, and I could finally be the real me- with stunning violet or maybe pink hair.
But do I have to wait? I am a Sagittarius Sun exactly conjunct Uranus (so waiting doesn’t come easy) and Scorpio AC with Pluto rising, and I think it could suit me so well. Plus I just kicked the cheating Boyfriend to the curb and am totally up for anything fresh and new and different.
Today I talked with my very talented hairdresser, and he said he could turn my hair into a dark shade of violet and that he thinks it would look beautiful. I’m totally up for it.
BUT: The hovering Venus Retrograde scares me. Should I go for it? Should I hurry and pick the next Libra Moon in February before Venus goes retro? Or is this an idiotic idea, given the fact that Venus is already in her pre-shadow phase? Should or shouldn’t I go for it?!
Please help me by shedding some light on this!
A big hug and thank you so much for the fantastic work you do. I can’t even start to tell you how much I love your site and how much your totally on point horoscopes help me every single day.
The (still) Boring Brunette
Dear (still) Boring Brunette*,
Honestly, with the news flow of late, I think we would all love some frivolity. Let’s do this. And damn right a Sagittarius Sun conjunct Uranus should not have to stuff around waiting for anything. And Pluto Rising? Done. If I need someone to help bend the rules of Time & Space, you’re it. Hired.
So the classic Retro Venus rule is not to do anything sudden/impulse that would be hard to change back. The main thing here being Venusian style surgery. I heard of someone recently wondering about labia surgery to win back her cheating husband. That was a resounding NO. Spend that $$$ on therapy.
But you HAVE ousted cheating boyfriend, have Talented Hairdresser onside and are considering a change that you have thought about for ages. It’s not some gin-soaked impulse hair cut and dye bender in your bathroom while listening to Bring Me To Life.
Also, I love how you are feeling the new Leo Eclipse/North Node in Leo Meta-Cosmic-Trend incoming. It is THE ultimate time to flip off at mediocrity and make drastic gestures to highlight your individuation and apparent refusal to tolerate disrespect. So far as Venus Retrograde effects go, this revolution would be particularly stylish.
What does everyone else think?
