Venus Retrograde relationships – that is – the ones that begin under this strange little astro-passage – are alluring, weird and cryptic by definition.
Will it last? You don’t know. Is it real? Depends what you mean by real. Is it alluring? Hell, yes. Venus Retrograde can bring soulmates together but it can also be a beautiful illusion. In the latter case, it’s merely a chimera, designed to catalyze your therapy. Only later will you look back, shaking your head, recognizing the dynamic in hindsight. We all have our karmic echoes and repeated lessons.
Ideally, follow the core rule of Retro-Venus. Don’t make love or beauty moves that would be tricky to reverse. These days we don’t have the time to even repent at leisure.
Why the hell, you may be wondering, does Retro-Venus feel so busy and power-tripped? Should we not be lounging on sofas in Yin mode, viewing an internal montage of our previous love lives and murmuring elegantly at the brilliant insights?
These Days We Don’t Have The Time To Repent At Leisure
Something more akin to this may well occur when Venus whizzes back into the late dimension of Pisces but for now, it’s Venus Retro in Aries – the sign of the Warrior God – and a lot of your fabulous insights will occur via confrontations, control dramas and having to stick up for yourself.
The edge behind all this is also Pluto – Venus was nearly in square to Pluto when she went Retro and that perfects at the end of May.
And of course, Jupiter is now square Pluto – it may not start officially till March 20 but Pluto-sensitive people will already have felt the primal Pluto pulse, like distant drumming in the dead of the psychic night, insistent and getting louder.
Hedge Against Pluto Problems By Paying Attention To Your Inner Realm
When you’re not doing psycho-confrontations that bring insights re power dynamics and past love lives or revamping aesthetics and everyday rituals, a good “hedge” against Pluto problems is to pay attention to your inner realm.
It’s hard to do in Darwinian times but it will give you the edge. Accessing your deepest instincts beats trying to muffle or numb The Message. And as for the Venus Retrograde relationships or attraction scenarios, you won’t be able to ascertain the true measure of the thing until after Venus emerges from the Shadow Zone. To explain, when she gets back to the point she was at when she went Retro.
