Venus in Aries is already in an odd place, as it is more the domain of Mars. But Retrograde as well? Abandon wiles and prepare to be brazenly yourself. Venus is now officially retrograde and remains so until mid-April. Mars in Taurus is going to take us through this phase. For more nuanced, sign by sign and rising takes on this fascinating astral passage, see your Horoscopes.
And, if you are in the mood to discuss this, what is YOUR Retro-Venus mission? “Mission” may sound too Yang for the Yin of Venus Retrograde but most of this is occurring in Aries – the sign of Mars – and if you take into account the Shadow Zone, this ain’t done till May 19. So why NOT devise a mission around it?
The Retro-Venusian trick for Venus in Aries is that you drop all wiles. Because influential people don’t need wiles and you’re not interested in negating your strength, autonomy or authenticity to get/stay laid/loved/validated. Plus it’s just a good tactic to be transparent, self-interested and detached from any over-investment during Venus Retro.
Note that Mars – the ruler of Aries – is going to be in Taurus, the sign of Venus and that Venus is in the traditional realm of Aries. There is a profundity to this astral passage that will play out over the next eight weeks and which I cover in the Horoscopes + Daily Mystic. Do also read your March Monthly Horoscopes if you have not yet.
So, what are your Venus Retrograde intentions? Remember it is always a fantastic time to rethink and strip back to the essence.
