Subscriber Post: Retro-Venus Relationship, Dating & Beauty Tips

Filed in Venus

Venus turns Retrograde with relative frequency but this one is more profound than usual, occurring as it does at the end and the beginning of the Zodiac.  The more nuanced take on this for your sign and/or rising sign will be a feature of your Horoscopes over the next several weeks and the times/degrees for this Venus Retrograde cycle are at the bottom of this post.

But first, apart from the standard Retro-Venus precautions – no impulse shack-ups/wedding, no crazy idealization of the past and no beauty procedures you might find hard to reverse – what are some unique attributes of this one?  There are THREE major themes.

(1) The ability to be able to see your relationship history anew, as if from a more spiritual perspective. You see even the most sordid or personally threatening episodes with a higher consciousness and most likely more compassion for your self and the choices that you made. This is a product of the repeat passes by Venus over the extremely sensitive end points of Pisces, the sign in which Venus is exalted.

In some cases, this fresh vibe may threaten to erode built-up ‘protective resentment’ or your official narrative and this can be difficult to deal with. But the more you can just go Yin with any new insights or points of view at this time, the better. Or go Yang with it in your brain and really work with the heightened objectivity to push through the old story.

(2) A massive awareness of times when you may have lost your individuality in relationships or even the tendency to do that now, given half the chance. Venus in Aries (remember that this Retro goes through Pisces AND Aries, mostly Aries) wants to be loved for her fierceness and ambition, not have to mute it just to get laid/validation/a convenient social “couple” identity/love.  If your dating schtick is that you have to sedate yourself to be acceptable or that you can’t have individuation AND romance, this Retro-Venus cycle is an epic opportunity to address this with Aries gusto. If you are in a relationship, this cycle shows power dynamics or stealthy compromises that may not normally be apparent to you.

As Retro-Venus ALWAYS involves a degree of nostalgia, you may recall – without much prompting – times from your past when you did abandon your self. Or more pleasantly, when you were super brave and amazing – being warrior like during difficult circumstances.  Or speaking your mind and setting boundaries for the first time. You can even recover and once again feel a version of yourself that you became estranged from a long time ago, for whatever reason.

Venus is already in shadow, as you will see from the dates below, and i had a wowser of a Venus Retro recall just today, along the above lines. Long story short, my flatmate when i was 19 actually stole (briefly) my then boyfriend (a lower Neptunian type) and of course i was furious.  I remember walking literally all night, crying and raging but then when i returned home, i felt spent…exhausted but serene and really aware that she was not a friend and that i no longer wanted him.

So i always thought all this was psycho of me, pacing the streets like I thought they were the Moor in Wuthering Heights, being so uncool about it.  Literally today, i had this flash of compassion for my teenage self and realized that it did not even occur to me to numb or deny the feelings and that this was healthy. Whereas a decade later and i had become accomplished at burying or numbing emotions that seemed too strong or inconvenient. I am not saying this to overshare and this is a subscriber-only post but from this you may be able to see the ‘genre’ of this Venus Retro?

(3) Sharpening up your look.  Venus Retro has a fashion/beauty/image angle to it in that you do feel the urge to revise everything. You look at the whole vibe with fresh optics and the kind of cheery realism that is trademark Aries. You’re not remotely emotional or freaking out over things that could at other times be a bit of a punish. But you may get weird fashion flashbacks – of times when you devised an outfit that did not work and other occasions where you just owned it. What you wore when…sort of memory tracks. And you can become a sort of fashion psychic, restyling yourself for this era but with a strong sense of your deeper self.

And yes, it’s true – Venus Retro is not the best time to buy clothes or DO drastic things but this is when you let go, when you scheme and access a higher vibe re all things Venusian.

Venus is Retrograde from March 4 until April 15. This is the hot zone for “obeying” the precautions.  But it is in the shadow zone from January 30 until May 19.  A fantastic way to see this is as your opportunity to pull off some epic makeover of mind, bod, soul and that organically results in a more Contemporary You vibe. You don’t add on – so many makeovers involve the addition of extras –  you’re stripping back the excess. It’s eight weeks of Venus Retro – a symbolic withdrawal, if you like, into an underworld journey or a “cave” to reconfigure your psyche and clear your head in terms of creative and romantic potential.

Going through a painful long good bye. At times it feels right to reconcile but then my intuition says no. I am buying time but I know I need to reinvent my life or I need to set everything on fire.

I had my venus return today, and recently had realized that whole antiscion thing has her mirror on my natal ascendant. I was born right before a superior conjunction-in placidys shes on the edge of tge seventh with eris on the cusp and sun in the 8th. Thats square the nodes. I didnt even understand venusian qualities as i was most aware of my mercury in pisces on the dc alien bizrre love pentangle, i didnt have relationships, i happened to people. I remember reading about venus in aries being “she gets what she wants, shell move on, aggressive” yes… Read more »

Well, now I’m hugely looking forward to this Venus retro because this post was basically a potted history of my various romance-related neurotics. Anything that gives me a helping hand in finally ridding them from my psyche is to be welcomed.

Venus SD on your Dsc. That’ll be be big.

I have, natally, both of Pisces’ ruler SD in Scorp/Cancer’s Haus and l feel them 2 as personal planets such is the power of a SD!!!

Plus I had Pluto turn SD at 8*59′ on my Dsc of 8*53′ in 2013. It was the most guttural day of my life.

The retro will happen in my 8th house. Point 1 above is spot on for me and in fact highlights the precise issues going on in my life right this minute. I’ve realised how ferociously I’ve been clinging to a particular story regarding my relationships. Letting go of it means being untethered in the uncharted waters, a pretty fuquing scary proposition.
A couple of seemingly unrelated events have also resulted in some massive pattern recognition, and the reasons behind it. Oh my goodness.

2 things – 1. Maybe this is my progressed moon moving into libra but after yeeears of absolutely hating seeing myself in photos – like, wanting to vomit -, this last week I’m actually liking my face!?!?!!?

Venus will be retrograding over my 8th house sun (29 Pisces), mercury (3 Aries), moon (4 Aries), and just missing my mars and venus in Pisces/Aries respectively, either side of the transit.

I felt her go into shadow two weeks ago.

Well yeah…all of this. Separated from 11 yr partner 3 weeks ago. I was completely hurt, betrayed, enraged rah rah and had the legal papers drawn up a week later. The inability to sleep has plagued me, and lie awake reflecting on all the shitty things I tolerated and accepted and felt so ashamed and upset with myself over it. Still finding it hard to be kind to myself about how weak and manipulated I became. In the first week my Uranian energy was off the charts. Literally blowing lights by walking under them then turning them back on (no… Read more »

Fuq, yes. Also, might sound a bit lame, but when my first marriage ended I went straight to Louise Hay. Grief-induced insomnia = Heal Your Life. I’d read it hundreds of times but gosh, what comfort she guided me into providing myself in those dark times. Decide what you want your life/relationships to look and feel like, and manifest your way into it. Write it, illustrate it, affirm it…whatever you need to do to FEEL it. If nothing else you’ll cultivate a more positive, empowered attitude. Love to you xx

Sorry if this has been covered previously/elsewhere but … this is NOT the time to let back in a wayward, scoundrel of a love who reaches out, right? Regardless of how much I once loved him, how much he might have “changed”, when he treated me like total shit the first time ’round?

I’m thinking I know the answer to this one already but wth. Lol.

Yes definitely point 2.

And the stories we tell ourselves. That guy, Kyle Cease, got me onto that concept recently. It’s important. We hang onto so much stuff because we don’t like the blank page of no-story. Generalizing of course. But feels true.

PiMM Member
Pi

But is so much better refreshing to say hey! This is just a story! I can just like let that go. Booom. Breathe easy again 🙂

And the walking night thing. Yes! God. We layer so much crap onto what we feel. It was hard and 19 was when I inexplicably experienced a lot of self hate 🙁 but wow I miss 19.
Contemporary adulthood sucks that way.
If we’re not auto-wired to stay real in spite of it all. Which lets face it takes work sometimes. Constant listening to ourselves. Nice!

quintileMM Member

yes pi – its interesting with “the stories we tell ourselves” – recently talking to someone who ‘counsels’ me we talked about sort of dwelling on the threshold – that is, not falling into the old stories because they can be worn out, irrelevant and not helpful, but acknowledging the moments when the needs for stories come up…

And want to be really clear about this, because I have absolutely no shame about the fact that for a year or two I was a sex worker. I do not believe that all sex workers have daddy issues or alcohol or other substance abuse believe there is any more drug dependence or any of those ridiculous assumptions and hackneyed cliches often drawn than there in other professions- quite the contrary in fact. Nor do I see myself in any way as being “above” that type of work. Again, quite the reverse. Neither am I anti whisky or pharmaceutical substances,… Read more »

And some have much crap to deal with but have honesty. They are much better ppl to know. I just want to say l like your ‘call a spade a shove’l approach.

This will be a very interesting time. With all my Aries stuff pinging with Venus for months .. Mercury, MC, SN, Sun (currently conjunct transitting Uranus and Eris) all in my 10th house. The pinging looks good, trines, sextiles etc but let’s see. Unlike most of you guys I’m settled in relationship, it’s my work and career that I’m focusing on, it’s a weird time for me in that regard. Combine all this Venus in 10th with natal Uranus in my second house I have great potential to perform some type of astounding career / money coup as I have… Read more »

Living authentically or even just recognising that you are attempting this, has been my major realisation. Numbing and burying emotions is hard and allowing those emotions to be, like you say MM – walk the streets, has meant that I do feel this about that. Or I can’t be around that person because I know this now or I can’t be around this group of people etc.

Well I dunno how the VRx is going to play out. Its in her 5th and my 9th with it pinging a bit back into my 8th. But at that point Venus GTs my Sun/Nep so that must ameliorate the Rx somewhat. I think that must be happy confluence.

But her declarations for me have been heady to say the least. As Mystic said the other day with SN ebbing away Pisces they are now ready to commit again. I’m feeling it. I’ve finally engineered my shift to Brissy.

Will try and tune in to the reallisations and feel the feels because I know I am un / consciously blocking intimacy probably from self preservation and fear – from past experience and knowledge that I make sacrifices in relationships and especially seem drawn to men with painful childhoods and try and heal them ( Multi conj Virgo + asc)

I love what you wrote about your walk. I felt really inspired by your power, like I would be proud to tell that story. It’s high-level processing you were doing and of those dark feminine feelings that no one tells us how to process because we are just supposed to banish them or something. I totally get what you mean about a new perspective on the whole scene entering your consciousness. I so feel this!

I totally relate and spent most of today crying too. At one point for a few minutes I contemplated suicide- not actively but just as in allowing the idea in that I had several options both in life, in dealing with my feelings and that I’d be doing myself an injustice if I wasn’t totally honest about the myriad of opinions available. I’ve always been such a fighter and yet when considering the diagnostic expert’s idea to put me one yet another revolting psyche med with hideous side effects- two of which I’ve already tried, one being something usually prescribed… Read more »

Venus retro will be in my 10th, and will lurk between my natal Saturn and natal Chiron……..oh what fun! Not a light vibe, eh? Right now Venus is just about conjunct my natal Saturn, which is at 8 degrees Aries. Natal Chiron is at 26 Pisces. Also, Venus is squaring natal Cap Venus right now…….is that helping or worsening my natal Saturn/Venus square? I definitely need to figure out next steps for career.

I just did the Self Love activation with Janosh from Netherlands for Valentine’s Day. Felt good…..anyone else do it..?

Also, last night I had a dream in which I was hanging out with David Bowie. I felt so honored. It was like we were having a one to one business meeting of some sort and he was giving me advice, felt very brotherly…..amazing!

quintileMM Member
quintile

David Bowie might signify Capricorn or Saturn – he was such a Cap – often when we dream of famous people its so we can better remember the dream – so he = an aspect of yourself?? And yes agreed, better single than a crappy something – I dated someone for 4-5 months last year, realise in hindsight I was making lots of excuses for his less than fab behaviour, now I am totally thrilled I dodged THAT bullet.

flowerchild
flowerchild

Yes, I think my dream of Bowie has exactly to do with an interview I watched with him this past year that stuck with me where he said he took a break from music and did some acting and then came back to music refreshed and more enthusiastic, and to never be afraid to do something else for awhile. That resonated for me so much because I want to take a break from my career and do something else for awhile, or even permanently, you never know….. The fact that I had a dream about it and he was actually… Read more »

Is Venus retro a bad time to start a relationship? I started talking to this guy and within one day of conversation we were spilling our guts out. I haven’t been in a relationship or gone on a date for over a year now. We actually have’t met in person or gone on a date yet, should I wait until the retro cycle passes?

High school, college, 20’s…and I want to spend tons of money to beautify everything, especially my apartment.

Partly I’m doing it to get fit, partly it’s my whole transformation scheme to be more put together and transition to another better-paying, more fulfulling job. I currently dress like a slob in pyjama pants and t-shirts to work most days because I can. But for where I’m going, I want to show my power.

I have the same sun/venus placements. “I urge to merge and need to lead at the same time” Yes. Lol. And when I’ve merged too much, I don’t notice until it’s too late and then I tantrum, trying to seize back the individuality that I so willingly handed over. Difficult, unfair of me, and embarrassing, at times. My friendships followed that same trend, too. It’s taken a lot of presence, focus and self-love to work this one.

I just chopped my hair back into a pixie last week! Best haircut on me, ever.

I had a pixie cut for about 15 years, and started growing it out 2 years ago. Discovered, to my delight, that my hair had turned curly somewhere along the line…

Middle part 60’s thing, gorgeous. Wish I could pull it off, but alas.

Growing out bangs is painful. Can you cut it into a layered bob so the lengths meet up faster?

This Venus passage is verrrry interesting already. I got triggered with some stuff at the eclipse, then did some meditating work (love Jessica Snow!) and over the past day or two have had profound insights just drift in. Do I know what the next step is? Hell no. But it’s interesting…

YES same for me. Did some major cleaning-out at the Eclipse, and have had some subtle but profound shifts in the last day or two. Feels fantastic.

Same. Like parts of my I forgot quietly said “We’re still here” and it hurt a little but was nice at the same time.

I have Virgo in the 12th as well! Dizzarina?

My 12th is Kataka. But this eclipse took place on my 1st/7th axis, so, identity and relationship. And my identity has included a lot of self-loathing… I feel like I really touched the “root wound” in this meditation.

Anyone else notice the 70’s jump suit on Alucia Keyes at the Grammys?
