Dear amazing Mystic,
I have a rather frivolous, non-life-threatening-but-still-important-to-me question regarding Venus retrograde. Basically 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 basically 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 really 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 that’s fresh and new and different.
Today I had a talk 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 a really stupid idea, given the fact that Venus is already in her preshadow 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 amazing 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 to not do anything sudden/impulse that would be hard to change back. Main thing here being Venusian style surgery. Actually, i heard of someone recently wondering about labia surgery to win back her cheating husband. That was clearly a resounding NO. For fuq knows how many reasons. 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 Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life.
Also, i love how you are feeling the new Leo Eclipse/North Node in Leo Meta-Cosmic-Trend incoming. This is THE ultimate time to flip off at mediocrity and make drastic gestures of Awesome to highlight your individuation and literal refusal to tolerate disrespect. I would say do it on the Full Moon Eclipse in Leo – Feb 10/11 – I am putting the times for this in a Daily Mystic next week.
What does everyone else think?
