Traveling For Love With Venus Retrograde In Scorpio
The upcoming Venus retrograde has got me thinking about Venus retrograde protocol. That is, no excessive shopping benders, no drastic makeovers, etc. But if a retrograde is going back over things, is this a good time to review a relationship? Or in my case, it’s more of a non-relationship that I would like to assess to see if it could become a solid relationship.
In context, I met a guy last year in Feb in Sydney, Australia; he is Scandinavian and was out here on holiday. We have stayed in touch and tried to meet up half way in this most recent Mars retrograde, however, I was unable to because of ill health and financial issues.
I now have the time to go to Scandinavia, but it is during Venus retrograde in Scorpio. Is this a bad idea?
Thank you for your sensational astro insight.
Dear Cautious Taurus,
I get it! I touch upon this in one of the Daily Horoscopes for Friday. There were also some Venus Retrograde in Scorpio questions answered here. So there are many different ways you can approach Venus Retrograde relationships, but they boil down into two basic stances.
(1) Restorative. Do nothing drastic but self-heal and give yourself space to channel a deeper awareness of relationships and your romantic psyche. Love yourself. If you are in a relationship that you are not sure about, stay in a Venus Retro holding pattern for the time being.
(2) Pattern-Breaking. If you’re happy on your own but have been single forever and thought you might like to mate, why not venture out into dating? If you’re in a relationship that has become super-cloying, bust the rut and reconnect with your friends, neglected interests, etc.
So if you are doing (1), you’d be cautious about this unless you had damn good reasons to go to Scandinavia – in fact, is Scandinavia a country? I thought it was more like a term for a group of countries? Did he say “come to Scandinavia?”
But if your pattern was that you’d been risk-averse in romance and you were doing (2) then hell, go to “Scandinavia.” But it would be good to have something else happening over there, right? It would be a long-haul flight into Autumn to assess relationship solidity. How long does that process take exactly? Would you be evaluating the possibility of emigrating?
The quality of your rapport and interaction is key to this dilemma. No offense but you don’t seem wowed or are you just tactfully leaving out the major copulatory chemistry and radical “never had this before” mutual intellectual synergy?
What does everyone else think?
