When does Venus go direct already?!
I mean sheesh! As a Libra with Taurus rising the idea of Venus being retrograde irks me! It is my double ruler, no?
I have been wanting to dye my hair for months. Finally, I got up the courage to bleach it to go a shocking pink (which was the plan) but we went into retrograde, and I knew not to do anything permanent but my god the CHANGE ITCH is driving me crazy.
I am soon to finish a very long contract (in 2 weeks) and much like having break up hair, I am dying for some unemployment hair. I want to throw out all my clothes. Also, I am having various contradictory thoughts about body hair and what to do about it. While I do think that some of this is vibe control, I am so cautious about anything I could regret a month or two down the line, but I am OVER IT ALL!
Yes To Pink Hair And Vibe Control
Then there’s the love thing. My ex flew back into my life mid-Feb proclaiming he was a changed man and could now be all I needed him to be. I was dubious and downright rude to him about it. I kept testing and testing him, but he appeared to be walking the walk as well as talking the talk. He’s trying, and I see it. But I am still doubtful.
Why? Because it feels as if I am always having the same relationship, over and over, with different people.
I want Venus to go direct, so I can see what’s going on (or at least not have the retrograde as a doubting crutch). He’s also a Libra with (I think) Libra rising, so there is a LOT of Air going on there. But it’s nice. I’m still doing all I want to do. I enjoy our quiet moments together of crosswords, and we’re planning a trip, and it all seems great, but the skies and my impending life changes make me cautious. Is my desire to change just another test for him, to see if he can keep up with the pace of my evolution?
What do the skies say? Will Venus direct make things more clear? I certainly hope so.
Venusian People Can Use Lovers As A Sedative Or Distraction From Self-Actualizing
Hi Lost Libra,
You know, yes Venus Is Retro (until April 15 but May 19 is when it is out of the shadow zone) and these are all classic Retro Venusian themes. But I also sense JUPITER at work here, like egging you on into ultra growth – which is excellent. And as a Taurus Rising, Jupiter is most likely amplifying health-efficiency. You may be fed the fuq up with whatever constitutes your daily work vibe now but just busting out in a blur of Ex-trusting, trip planning, and unemployment hair is most likely not the answer.
Why not? Because – as you identify – Venus is vital to you – she is the ruler of both your Libra Sun and your Taurus Rising – she is your Muse planet, and her Retro is thus signaling a stylish retreat, a pause for thought. She is also square Saturn ALL April, the time for pragmatism and ruthless honesty – if only with yourself.
Sex With The Ex On Venus Retrograde? No!
Yes to the pink hair, the body hair whatever and Vibe control. The man? Shudder. Re the Ex, so he rocks up as Venus goes into the prelude to her Retrograde saying “I’ve changed” and so on. It suggests that the pre-alleged change version was not desirable. Your use of words like “doubtful,” “unsure” and so on makes me want to grab you and shriek “trust your instincts woman.” You are both Venus Ruled and considering getting back together on a Venus Retrograde. No.
Don’t use this guy as a sedative/distraction from self-actualizing. Strongly Venusian people can be tempted to do just that. Get the pink hair. Do go on a trip but solo and stake out a solid employment scene that doesn’t make you want to bolt the joint. The new Earth Vibe is coming – Saturn in Capricorn, Uranus in Taurus, Pluto in Capricorn – stay grounded and pragmatic – hold out for big love and obviously a quality relationship, no doubts.
