Venus Retrograde And The Meteorites

Venus Retrograde in Scorpio

Venus Retrograde and the Meteorites is a strange story. Venus is already in the shadow of her Retrograde through Scorpio and the late degrees of Libra.  It is not, as you may recall, a rad time for beauty-style moves that would be hard to change back. But it works wondrously for morphing various aspects of your grooming regime. Not only that, but such steps may have subliminal significance. Here is my example. It does include a brand name, but this is not an endorsement. As always, the site has no promo-links, affiliates or ads.

Years ago, in that hot-zone of the 18 to 24 years old life phase, I got mixed up with a man who could be called, at best, extremely sleazy. The relationship ended when I fled a sunlit dappled house in a swank suburb and made straight for the police station. For the Anti-Fragility and year of survival-hormone activation, I would like to thank Uncle Pluto.

Weirdly, though the memory of the Lower Pluto guy has thankfully faded over subsequent years, I always remember I left a cosmetic purse there. Given the scenario, the loss of that little bag was an odd thing to regret, but it was an era when I was obsessed with makeup.

The Memory Of The Lower Pluto Guy Thankfully Faded

The only particular item I remember was Guerlain Meteorites powder.  It was a considerable expense for me at the time and came in these cute little-colored pastel balls.  I loved that stuff; the packaging, the violet soapy smell, that I fancied it was from actual meteors and the ritual of dusting it on my face.

So, even though my modern taste has swung organic, herbal and low-key, the moment Venus moved into the shadow-zone the other day, I woke up after a weird dream and went straight out to buy Meteorites powder. The sales assistant was kind and she reminded me of my Scorpio grandmother, which seemed fitting.  In the time since I left my original Meteorites at the house of the Sleazy Guy, they redesigned the product. It now has a Flower of Venus design on the container.

And so ever since Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, I have been dusting on the Meteorites in the morning, as a thanksgiving, a Still I Rise style of affirmation and a little prayer for those who did not make it through their hot zone.

I love this post so much. So beautiful, nostalgic and strong in a gentle way. Like when you’ve toughened due to life’s traumas and then done the years long process of softening again, without necessarily realising it… and you get a reminder to look back and celebrate all that you worked through. We always talk about the Descent of Inanna but we never hear of her Ascent. That’s a journey too. And equally as tough! <3

And now a comment from me that relates to the actual post 🙂 – imo there is tremendous power in reclaiming items, artefacts, talismans and so on that meant something in the past, but were tethered to unhappy or difficult memories/times. It’s as if we use our witchy power to summon them into the now, and this summoning up releases their power over us. And in the reclaiming we allow access to that part of ourselves we may have lost or mourned (or abandoned) back there. I did this with my favourite childhood books many years ago. After I left… Read more »

I so agree with this….. In an estate jewelelry and curio shop in Southern NSW, I recently found a dinner service for two in an old English pattern that I had first collected almost fifty years ago in Stratford on Avon, in England. Over the years it had all been broken. I couldn’t believe it and snapped it up and am now using it every day. It was bang on target too, as after all that same amount of time I had returned to a small country town to live. What a reinforcement, that I was reclaiming a life that… Read more »

Are you a fan of midpoints? Ok so I’m not really sure what they do but would Neptune at the midpoint of this be any help/value? The most misty planet in the least concrete sign offsetting two firecrackers in fixed signs?
Oh wait also is it a T square with Venus?

In my hot zone of 18-24, I was given a Chanel nail polish as a Christmas gift from my best friend’s mother as being a Christmas orphan, I had been invited to their family Christmas. My friend’s mother not only exuded extreme kindness and care but a rare sophistication and grace that I was besotted with, had placed this tiny beautifully wrapped gift into my hands. The Chanel gift down to the packaging and ribbon and smell propelled me into an appreciation for the luxury and the almost unattainable beauty of it all.

So agree with this Mystic and during this time for me there were predators, who sniffed out my Dorothy naivety so easily but also sweet things who liked me a lot but I so wasn’t ready to settle down either and I hurt these ones. SUCH a confusing time emotionally.
then I fell pregnant and had a thirty five year detour.., ah yes, the beginning of the Pluto transit sure shook it all up, have been back in my own life for nine years now and I can still feel that 18-24 yr old girl.xxx

Such a sad unhappy and wasted period of my life. I was so locked in by my parents I did not get to experiment almost anything. But yesterday I bought – totally by chance! – a silky loose powder that reminds me of possibly the best loose powder I ever owned eons ago. It was Lancôme (not sponsoring anything here) but I cannot recall the name. We are taking early 90’s here.

Mmm was in toxic relationships from 17 to 20 years of age. Then pretty much was single til 24. So I had a blast and remember the quiet one nights of sex fondly. No attachments. Some odd decisions but none the less. It was a time for me that I did wisely and its because I did it wisely I got the man I have today. And I could of gotten the other one too but chose not to relationship with a chinese horoscope metal snake. So all good. Earth ox for me!

Seriously Mystic, this is such a touching & inspiring post, i love all of it. It speaks directly to my natal Venus-Pluto conjunction. And with Uncle Pluto being my personal trainer during the hot-zone yrs as well (it was journeying over my Asc & 1st H at the time) i really appreciate it. My story would be titled Venus Retrograde & The Midi Button Up Pencil Skirt….. not quite as zingy.

In the 10th. Kinda handy: Venus (also my Chart Ruler) loves harmony and sociability at work and Pluto gives enough edge/intensity to intimidate those who try to mess with me. Howeverrrrr, it was a different story when i was much younger, as this combo seemed to attract too many almost tragic & dangerous situations involving predatory males. And I’ve just figured out that it wasn’t till Pluto finished transiting my 1st house (& squaring my pluto-venus) that i seemed to *grow into* this V-S conjunction and become a lot stronger – like growing into my own power, so to speak.

I have 2H Mars Pluto Vesta Venus all conjunct at the midpoint of my Cancer Asc / Scorp Nep. The Virgo Stell is also trined by Sat in Cap. This energy rivals both Piscean rulers, which are both in Scorpio, both SD and both focalisers in 5 T Squares. In the house my sign rents out.

I am disappearing down a vortex of depression, obsession and intensity that is sucking the life from me. It all feels rather pointless. I just keep playing Stevie’s “Talk to Me” prob her best song.

I was born with Saturn Rx and it took 59 years for it to go SD; in the progd chart. Like if you have it forward, natally, it will keep travelling forward and may never turn SRx in your life time. In your case it may have turned SRx, in your progd chart, in your school years. Maybe even at the time of the abuse from the nuns; I forget actually who. I’m referring to the fact it was actually turning SD in my progd chart AS WELL as turning SD as a current transit; @ the same bloody time!!!… Read more »

Aaaah OK. somehow omitted to read your SD & Rx stuff re Sat. Plus never really looked into it before. Interesting.
So I just worked out that my natal Sat Rx went SD in Prog Chart in Aug 2008 and still is SD. No idea what this means. But August 2008 was BIG for me.
Thanks to you i now have retrograde brain from tracking Sat in Prog Chart & it’s 3.30 am…zzzzz

When I was in my hot zone in the 1980s I was obsessed with French perfume, bold eyeliner (punk ethic) and new romantic bands like Spandau Ballet… my ideal look was from Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes video with the clubbers like Steve Strange. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and have a very minimal beauty routine, mainly using very good Aesop moisturiser. I have been growing my eyebrows a bit thicker lately though, unfortunately I over plucked years ago. For impact e.g. when going out after work, I might add eyeliner (subtle brown or blue), lipstick, and a spray… Read more »

I’ve never heard of Meteorites before and wonder how I missed knowing about it all these years. On the website it says the product came out in 1987. I was 19 years old then, in my hot zone but was very far from the ‘Meteorites vibe’ at that time. I watched the tutorial video just now because I don’t really understand these types of products. I wouldn’t trust myself with this one. I’d probably look like I just smeared glitter dust all over my face. I’d have to have a professional do it and then try to duplicate what they… Read more »

I don’t wear makeup, never really have, but I’ve recently arrived in my 30s, divorced, working nights and after some health problems. My face can be a bit of a surprise most days (and nights) in the mirror. I still am not going to wear makeup, as my bounding Aries moon can’t really handle stopping for any daily rituals and if it could I would prefer exercise or meditation.

My daily application of base is an affirmation of self loving and touching. Touching the face is seriously intimate, a sort of spiritual experience as a massage and an art. As i apply i do a gratitude thingie that i HAVE a face that’s friendly to others 🙂

I have a similar bronzer-blusher to this in my toolbox, little multi-colored balls in a round tin, and though not as posh as Guerlain it still does the trick. I think “enhance, don’t change” is a good approach to beauty during Venus Rx. Good time to throw out all the old stuff that will only be toxic on the skin now too.

I recently went full “Uranus in Taurus” with my beauty, opting for clean skincare in a way that my bougie self never has before. I’ve been on this kick for awhile, starting with the never ending quest for natural deodorant that works in hotter-than-hot climates. But I do always have to stop myself from weird beauty buys during Venus retro. When I was young and uninformed regarding these transits, I would buy the weirdest makeup that always looked awful on me (a yellow promenient green MAC eyeshadow look comes immediately to mind).

This resonates. It reminds me also of the ex that I had to leave suddenly and self-protectively who held onto the nascent techno/break beat vinyl collection I was starting mid hot zone. Fuqq

Beloved make-up items are like talismans. I never throw my true magical make-up tools out. There is the original Aveda ‘love’ oil; there my Lancome solid cream blusher glass pot. They are far too potent reminders of a hot zone magic I was weaving freely and uninhibited. (OK – old foundation and mascara I do throw out!)

Why do you call the 18 to 24 the hot zone? It was my no sex (I did past my 24th year. Always been very late in everything love wise) zone.
Anywho I was barely using make up and I only had unreciprocated crushes. Kinda like now, without the crushes.
I wish I had any interest (better: ability) with make up. I think my looks would be getting some serious improvement. Maybe I can look at tutorials and learn something during VR?

It’s a good idea to go to a makeup person in a department store… it’s free if you buy some makeup. I had a Napoleon makeover years ago and it changed the way I do makeup (when I bother). Never use foundation though, maybe a bit of concealer. I just can’t understand why young women use foundation! covering up young beautiful skin and makes them look fake. Ridiculous.

This is a stunning piece of writing, I am utterly moved and uplifted by how gorgeous and evocative and powerful a statement it is. Plus I’m reminded of the french notion of a scented cassoulet where a women combines all her scent as well as Brigette Bardot singing the line Guerlain somewhere

Important to honour these experiences and those of our sisters (and brothers), I really like your story mystic. I had the strangest dream last night, also about a past lover from when I was 18-20. But in the dream my sun-venus in Toro, Adonis-vibing, lover was unpleasant, vibing angry and spiteful and he looked completely different. Bad. For some reason we were staying in the same place and he made a point of bringing a girl home and trying to rub it in my face by having incredibly noisy sex (her, she was a bit of a smug troll in… Read more »

I think so and as you’re dreaming you are doing the reorganisation work of filing them back. I’ve been dealing with the discrep between pre and post this summer’s eclipses me (especially in terms of how I allow myself to be treated) and received I Ching hexagram 49 (and 49/line 6 in an adjacent reading) last night which bears reflecting on. Metamorphosis will come but in its own time and does not need pushing. I’m writing this here no doubt to remind myself but what you wrote made me think of it. Sounds like the work is happening already!

Thanks Lotus, yes I hope that in the process of dreaming, it’s a representation of some kind of neural activity/reorganisation.
Glad the I Ching is working for you too 🙂

Pluto square my Natal Venus from 2012-2014 – very brutal but I had my own Phoenix Rising moment in the end. The night of the most intense incident with said man involved was New Years Eve of 2012, and I had been cocktail waitressing at a large night club in San Francisco. At the time a good friend was a gogo dancer on stage that night and before I went home to endure one of the worst nights of my life, I remember looking on stage up at my friend dancing thinking that I wanted to be that free and… Read more »

I remember the hot zone. And the bad decisions that came along with it. I do like the idea of reclaiming totems from then as empowerment for now. Hmm. Methinks it’s time for a journaling session! Thanks, Mystic!

Oh Mystic, I loved that Meteorites Powder too, I have forever and still look at it wistfully in stores from time to time because I never did buy any. As a Libran about to embark on her second half century, starting with a bang with an epic self-guided solo tour through Europe, maybe it’s time I got with it and got some too (and never fear, not because of any endorsement, just because it rings so familiar for me). 😀

Same here – multiple Libran speaking – exactly the same, I looked longingly at it but never did get. I went through a little phase in my hot zone of shoplifting (no endorsement here either) testers of the cosmetics I most most longed for but couldn’t afford. My absolute favourite from this era was a Lancome liquid highlighter which was a kind of shimmery gold essence, and it felt like it treated the skin well too, like a rose elixir would. It got discontinued, of course, or I would have bought it several times over. Other faves were a solid… Read more »

I remember looking at it also at a younger age and thinking it looked magical but I could never afford it. I can now, I wonder if it is for me. I was only thinking about purchasing some kind of mineral glow powder or bronzer last night at the local supermarket and I actually recalled this product and thought rather than make an el cheapo purchase like I usually do, perhaps I could treat myself by going to a beauty counter…food for thought this weekend. Very timely post as usual!

YES, this is incredible. I love your story Mystic! Venusian, spooky and Plutonic…revisting the past!

I am getting this vibe myself, particularly in terms of meaningful morning rituals.

Wow the synchronicity of this post is too much! I really can’t interpret my chart to save my life but was once told I have a “heavy Scorpio chart.” (I agree but tend to think my Sag rising balances out the intensity greatly, thank heaven!) When I read the post title I immediately thought of Guerlain Meteorites as I too am a former makeup junkie turned skincare junkie but never splurged on this….I believe it could be time. Then I read the entire post & there were the Meteorites. ; ) Thank you for your brilliant posts & ways of… Read more »

Enjoyable reading the post-response meteorites chain reactions flashes showers recollections–some sort of retro pirouette into futurity bursting awareness with shades
