Notes From A Retro-Venusian Recluse

Filed in Uncategorized

Hi Mystic,

Just coming at you live from Retro Venusian ground central here on the West Coast of the US.  I have so enjoyed your posts, esp the one “pick your Venus retro stance.”  Apt as ever and always on time.  As a Taurean Sun and North Node, my stance from the pre shadow of this beast has been celibacy, with Intentions set on the resurgence of my creative powers and a cathartic cleansing of my womb.  No joke.  

Knowing that it was in Scorpio and would cross my natal Pluto- I had an inkling it would be magical albeit non-glamorous, with a dash of paranoia.  Sultry with a side of “The Hermit.”

To report:  Just now finally kicking off the last shrapnel from my springtime break up with the Rogue Robot Aquarian who dumped me on the phone and never spoke to me again, this shit was hard to quit.  Quite literally, this man haunted my dreams so frequently that mid-retrograde I had to create my own magic wand and began doing small protection rituals each night before bed.  Alas!  It worked.  Win.  Happy to share with any currently haunted.  The last dream featured in the series, he was oddly telling me how he was trying to learn how to fly and I finally told him to fuq off.  

Other upsides to note: created an entire jewelry line, saw a Ghost on all hallow’s eve, met a sweet Fellow Taurus, our first date being this weekend the night that Venus moves forward, also- improved health regime

Downsides:  haircut needed, a bit pale from the nightly creativity outbursts and reclusive tendency.  Aforementioned Celibacy.  

Thank you for all of your insights and guidance, I still refer you as the Queen Of Everything for a good reason

🌚🔥

Xo Jennie the Taurus

She had me at “Queen Of Everything”!

Okay, so this is a good springing off point for a broad Retro-Venusian discussion. Hands up who saw a ghost, did some dream-witching, designed and created, was celibate/not celibate or meeting sweet Taureans?

This is your share zone!

Note: Although Venus is Direct soon – times are on the Daily Horoscopes page as usual – Venus remains in the Via Combusta for weeks and there is still another Venus-Uranus opposition to go!  I will cover this in more detail in the Daily Mystic email for the weekend.

Thoughts?

Started seeing 2 different men. One right before venus retro and one the day of venus retro. Both from my past, both younger and claiming to not be serious (although actions prove otherwise) Its curious to me that I have two. I would have thought that would be during a Gemini or Sagg venus retro. She did turn retro right on my pluto in the 1st. (plus I’m libra rising). I’m wondering if other Libra risings get as strong of a reaction from each venus retro, because I certainly do! Also wondering what the consensus is on starting a relationship… Read more »

Had a big deal meeting so *had* to get a haircut. Luckily it turned out fine. Romance-Very volatile with regular guy (though I poked around on here one night and realized his double-Leo Scorpio moon thing might have a bit to do with the drama as well). Met some very nice new gentlemen friends. Still not sure where all that will land. Personal-Recorded my dreams daily. Cleaned up my diet. Have found myself rising quickly through a really quite fringe-y African based religion, which feels so good and right I actually occasionally burst into happy tears. Getting more exercise, running… Read more »

i really thought this retro was going to be the utter dissolution of my near 2 year “relationship” that has been torrid and sexy and heart-rendingly painful … when you meet a true mirror who brings ALL your stuff up ALL the time it’s intense. there was a lot of arguing, and breaking up and getting back together, and crying. in the past, i said phuq this, and walked away. from everything and everyone every time. too much work? i am outta here. but this? couldn’t do it. this retro saw me make a conscious decision to step fully into… Read more »

i was completely enveloped in fear. i wanted. i wanted everything. except being vulnerable. except waiting, and being patient, and being a grownup. except believing another human at their word without suspicion. so i leaned in because i wanted, and i leaned back out because i was afraid of getting hurt. over and over. and then finally there was a release of fear, and acknowledgement that i wanted this more than i wanted my fear. a realization that my fear was my choice. so i chose something different. it was a nanosecond in time, the shift, in my head and… Read more »

Also celibate. Also reclusive. Also spending time with Taureans — awake or dreaming.

Made a collection of decorative mirrors inspired by ancient Venus figurines and am thrusting them into the world next Thursday right before the full moon.

Does it have to end?? Can I stay like this forever? Taureans are such gentle creatures — whatever frustration that brings too. Done with sex. Done with needless interaction.

I would love the protection spell!! Have been in an unshakable anger at my ex due to many issues involving our child and find myself thinking/stewing over him constantly. It’s driving me nuts. Yes he’s a narcissistic sociopath… I’m well aware of this but since my Mum died my resilience and coping ability is barely there.
Have done numerous cord cutting meditations, auric protection meditations etc to no avail.
I want this guy out of my head. Any tips greatly appreciated!

Been there with the cluster-b ex. My nickname for him now is cluster-b, lol. At any rate, there are no good answers I’m afraid. I’ve done the cord cutting ceremonies, banishing ceremonies, fire ceremonies, etc. They do help. But in the long run it’s your mind that you have to learn to control – or take back control of it from him. These types know exactly how to get in our heads and press buttons, that is how they thrive, on others’ discomfort and pain because it helps them feel better about their low selves. No one above you wants… Read more »

At this last moment of Venus Retro, at 25 Libra, check out how she’s trine to Mars still at 29 Aqua, and opposite Uranus at 29 Aries, and Mars/Uranus are in mutual reception at the anaretic degree. North Node also at anaretic degree in Cancer. And we are at the quarter moon, Sun exact square to Moon at 23 degrees Scorpio/Aqua. And Mercury is exact square to Neptune at 13 degrees Sag/Pisces! Something is afoot. This to me seems a “stop and notice, take stock” moment. Anyone got any insight on this configuration?

I was just looking at the chart and there are a few things that stand out for me. Firstly – in my chart everything is currently above the horizon except the NN which has been anchored into ‘home’. With someone else I looked at it’s the opposite, everything below and the anchor is in career and rep so all the work/focus might be in a particular half of your chart with the NN pointing being the handle to the bucket so to speak. If the concentration is in the west then there’s be more choice and in the east perhaps… Read more »

PlutoMoonMM Member

The NN is nearing conjunction with my natal Moon at 27 Cancer, in my 8th house. Mars is cozying up to my natal NN at 1 Pisces. Something is incoming, for sure. Hope it’s good! 🙂 Feels big.

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

Well I totally get the 8th vibe and more intensely since Pluto rocked up for his long play stay. I have Pluto trine Moon anyway so is Pluto trine Pluto now too.
Luna and her NN would be a signal from the future but in subjective speak so will need the usual 8th style decoding techniques.

Feels big – that just made me think of Jupiter square your NN and probably still trine (though out of sign – perhaps not house – Moon) 🙂

milleunanotteMM Member

Im in just that moment. And my man wants to be in it in between his day stuff. And he would change it, as always, but he is going to need it. He will not have finished his day.
Uh, he just messaged. What a Pisces (he doesn’t even know yet) can give an Aries 😉
We both look after people in our work roles, and him in other life spaces. He should have a moment of suspension and grace in place

Ah… your man? 🙂 So – should I be raising a congratulatory glass girl? I do believe that scent wafting from my screen might be the heady aroma of lurve 😉 x

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Yeah! A bit astonished to be with an Aries, tho! And then i realise noone else could really manage my Mars. Think this one has a grand cross but it also has another red line rhrough the middle. What is that called? Looks a bit like a star? Like the asterisk symbol.

And also i was wrong, above. He doesn’t need that. This is quite challenging to my idea of my self in relationship.

A Grand X has, at least four, connected squares and at least two oppositions. A powerful presence. Dylan has a Mutable GX

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Thanks JM. Four separate lines that are red? Or four planets creating the cross?

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

There are three oppositions that cross each other, but one square, so no box around the crossing lines.

Jokerman
Jokerman

Doesn’t sound like a GX to me.

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

No, internet searches turned that up as one under cafeastro but reading a few other sites more carefully, it is just three oppositions that run across each other. My own mother has a classic one though. Thank you, JM!! I hate getting an aspect incorrect and then attributing certain things to it, because then i learn less about the astro itself.

Jokerman
Jokerman

So what are the degrees of these planets, by sign, and house placement? If that is an acceptable question.

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Question acceptable 🙂 But i have posted others’ astro before in some detail forgetting about their privacy, as i think certain planetary possies are very year specific. And it’s not member only here. What do you think? Could i compromise someone’s privacy doing that? If not, happy to share. (Will probs be back tomorrow.)

CentaurusMM Member
Centaurus

For me the question would be whether I was prepared to compromise what I was building with someone by discussing it at levels of detail that they may not be comfortable with or have provided consent and if it’s got some legs then I wouldn’t…my 8th talking – have I said too much? But yes the question is reasonable, not said to make you feel bad J.

CentaurusMM Member

You have me thinking inconjunct or quincunx – both get used interchangeably – 150 degrees so it looks not quite like an opposition and therefore like a star point… or a Yod (2 planets sextile but both inconjunct one planet)? Can I be so bold…. easy on the astro-analysis. That can be a tempting trap and perhaps won’t give reveal what you seek anyway or…. know what it is you are seeking to know rather than approaching from an all in perspective and seek only to know that one piece at a time. Hope that doesn’t come off other than… Read more »

Absolutely! Love that thinking very much. I am not prepared to Zomb Out or to do the synastry, or to investigate deeply. Have not all details yet, anyway. Also i am not a great chart reader…so I do it backwards. Get to know people and then see where something might play in a chart. And – haha! – Ariens reveal themselves quicker than I could read their chart!

“when my Venus in Virgo would heroicly try to deal with his “episodes”.” —I’m curious if this is a Venus in Virgo trait. That is…attracting lovers who have episodes that require heroic amounts of labor? This is so familiar to me. It’s a past trait, I hope. I’ve spent that last six years shoring up boundaries and making sure heroic efforts will actually be well-received. Hmm, thank you for the food for thought.

my Venus retro was less about romance (that was more my retro mars in aqua vibe: enter historic aqua, past aries saggo, instagram ghost aries) and more about friendships. It had been building up for a while, try having Lilith in Libra in the 11th ha. But a lot of those friendships have become unsustainable at least for now. I’m embracing a loner stance and calling in a new tribe. I guess that is super retro Venus in scorp/lib. Yah and celibacy too

I came to an amicable agreement with my polymath. While he’s at sea, fishing for answers and feeding his greed, I’ve let my hair down, explored places I’ve wanted to go and new activites. Tonight its Metal Yoga. Tomorrow its seeing my housemate whos just moved workplaces into the city where I work. Cosmic shifts.

My Chiron return coincided with Pluto going into Cap. It was the catalyst for me to get into astrology. And thats been a healing thing. It helped me understand my nutcasery, daydreaming and my intensity. A Cap Supa Bitch became my boss and ruined a good thing. A lot of teachers, not all, hate the way I get on with kids. My students learn by accident. Professional arseholes hate that. Then when Uran went into my horoscope 10th it was the precursor to it hitting my 29° MC, like for the past year or more. Its now my quandary.

Protective spells yes please as some of the above, traumatic, end-of-the-worldy & full of ex, (perhaps he needs to be cut out of my hair along with the dead-ends)
Met a surprisingly unusual soulmate, after years of solo dedicated hermitic-health practice- cue the last cull & healing of out-moded fears, as groundwork for next years changes.
Creative Christmas card making/printing love.
Yorkshire pale-face paste is my MO.
So much limbo.
So much retrograde.
So much Netflix.. *goesbuysrunningshoes

Slowly pulling unused clothing out and placing in bags for thrift store. Slowly detangling from needs, desires, ego demands and sitting with the awful emotions. Shredding past life papers. Bags each week of past life going to the curb for the trash. Extreme gratitude for curbside trash removal. Review of horrific behaviors by neighbors/schoolmates from childhood (retro Venus all through 11th house community). Naming the behaviors as horrible and not passing off as anything other than. Counting on my continued ability to just maintain while everything is in review (this whole damn year of retrograde after retrograde) about my relationship… Read more »

I’m tired. And celibate. I wish I was neither. I’m over this shite. No dates lined up. No sweet Taureans in waiting. Articles like this reverberating in the ether: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2018/12/the-sex-recession/573949/ My creative inspiration has hit a wall. I want Mars in Pisces already. I think Mars in Aquarius has dragged on through dry air long enough. I’m parched. Dreams have been informative, yes, and the Oracle/Tarot have been spooky lately as well. Still, getting out of Venus Rx and shadow will be a relief, like tossing a lead blanket off my tired body.

Wow!..i read the article. Very good, and quite interresting. Thank you! The world is going through a collective purge, or so it seems. I have been celibate/ taking a break too for a while now ( after rather active love life before) Seing that i am following some trend is inspiering me to stop the celibacy…i do not do trends 😉

Great article! Thanks for posting…. ye gods, we’ve managed to out-weird even ourselves in under 20 yrs. If you’re tired you must look after yr body & make time to rest properly – so crucial. And hope the funk effs off pronto for you. I haven’t enjoyed this Mars/Aqua caper either. Mars has just gone over my Chiron (4th house & opposite my big 10th h stellium). For the 4yrs i’ve been tracking the astro, i’ve noticed that when this transit happens i actually get stomach pains or flu like symptoms on the day, with bouts of angst/anger/self pity, then… Read more »

Thanks 🙂 I’m having a multi-Saturn transit AND a Neptune transit to boot: Saturn is currently squaring my Sun/MC/Uranus AND my Chiron/IC, while sitting exact on my Eros; Neptune is opposing my Mercury/Mars. Stuck/escape mode. Mars is also squaring my Neptune and conjunct my NN in early Pisces, which is also being squared by transit Jupiter as well. I’m hoping the shift of Mars into Pisces will inspire me to get moving! Strange about the Mars/Chiron transit. I’ll have to pay attention when Mars crosses my Chiron in early Aries, coming in January.

Sounds like a planetary standoff. And poor Eros! How’s that affecting your writing – the situ doesn’t vibe sexy at all. Or is it weirdly enhancing it?

PlutoMoonMM Member
PlutoMoon

I keep going round in circles with my writing. Not making much progress at the moment. I hope Mars into Pisces pings my inspiration though. Or at least enables me to morph into a different perspective so I can attack it from a different dimension! Gotta love the Pisces dissociative-ability.

That article is frightening ! And so sad. All of them scared of rejection and the males try to emulate porn due to lack of real experience? Ugh. No wonder the ladies are turned off. I’m on a lack of interest bender due to lack of time and probably hormones. But… when I was younger…

I definitively need to get my sons some social skills coaching. And sex manuals NOT based on internet porn. I’ll roll over in my grave one day if they pull that shit.

I gave myself a bad haircut (‘trim/tidy’) in-between haircuts… 2 weeks down, 2 to go, and my hairdresser is going to kill me… and I realised today why it is upsetting me so much apart from the fact it is rather unflattering, is because it resembles a combo of a bad haircut I had bang-on puberty and then a ‘style’ I had a couple of years later in my awkward and very difficult teens. (Uber-Crab with some heavyweight Leo in my 1st). Also, seem to have suddenly gained back half the weight I just worked so hard to lose… But… Read more »

Awww, sweetheart! And your name’s Moonglow. I’m guessing u just had the yukky caterpillar phase..? You are meant to have butterfly wings? It happens, it will always happen at times before you transform. Just love your body and your selves in past awkwardness. They wore your gorgeous soul and took on the hard yards for you. Looks like you are gonna be magnificent again, probs more each time than before xx

Sounds like you are up-morphing Jennie the Taurus. Please share the protection ritual you created!!! I had a similar but different experience of being ‘haunted’, energetically, by an ex ‘friend’.

I culled three trash bags of clothes from my dressers and closets. Those will go to the local PTA thrift shop for resale to people or resale as rags for paper-making. A good clothing cull seemed Venus retro-ish, and I held off on actually taking the clothes to the shop until the weekend after Venus turned direct to make sure nothing went away that shouldn’t.

I’m still trying to find a way to move to my preferred location, about 600 miles north-northwest. I figure every cull that takes place now is one less frantic packing issue when I finally go.

LotusFlowerMM Member

I’ve been doing huge amounts of culling too, and not just clothes: one day (- the October full moon) I had a wild moment and took a whole 4 large shopper bags of books to the second hand store – books! I’ve been through kitchen cupboards too, out of the way storage areas, drawers etc and rarely seem to have gone out the last few weeks without having something in a bag to ‘donate’! Today, an auctioneers came to pick up the very first pieces of inherited furniture which I am going to sell. Standing in the empty space feeling… Read more »

The clothes have been donated, and I also took down my old, tired window treatments today and replaced them with newer, more simple looks. The old curtains and blinds are in the back of the car, waiting for donation/disposal. My living room looks way better now.

Romantically: Relationship with my long time guy was very quiet. Not bad. Not boring. Just nothing really doing. We’re good but quiet.

Personally: lots of journaling, creative thought, quiet rut busting. Working on a creative/life vision behind the scene, not ready to share yet.

I did have some interesting dreams – annnnd I’ve now forgotten then all.

Mostly my retro has been completion of an old professional/creative chapter, and visioning/ quietly making all things new. And quiet, easy romantic times. And all very hidden and private.

Well done, Jennie!! 1. I remained celibate (though, admittedly, my determination to remain so hasn’t been put to test that much, LOL). 2. If willpower-muscle-builders had a contest like bodybuilders, I could show off with the single muscle that I have been training since Mars turned retro this year: the no-do-not-reach-out-no-do-not-text-back-ceps. Trained with many people of differing [emotional] weights. 3. On the downside, gave in to some low-Venus overspending urges; on the bright side – ended up with a couple of items that I now cannot imagine my wardrobe without. Also, I’ve been postponing a haircut forever but now ended… Read more »

I’ve been bringing home lost parts of myself and as well as ruthlessly removing items from my home, especially ‘gifts’ that do not resonate with me anymore. Simultaneously I have been holding my boundary with people that do not nourish me but who seem to pester me nonetheless (let’s call them qi vampires and be done). A crystal grid has been set up in my bedroom to protect against the 3am psychic/guilt attacks, and protective clearing to protect the domestic space in general. Jennie – I am all ears for your wand ritual. I too desperately need a haircut! (Actually… Read more »

3am psychic/guilt attacks?

LotusFlowerMM Member
LotusFlower

When you cut somebody out for your own peace of mind but then wake to find yourself thinking about them, feeling bad for putting your own self-care first – this can feel like guilt but it can also be old energetic cords being tugged – psychic attacks if you will. Hooks that have yet to be dislodged entirely. Sorry if I was not clear.

Unicorn SparklesMM Member
Unicorn Sparkles

I think it just resonated. In the “ wait, that’s not just me who gets that? ” way. And 3am is the hour. Always. I think in Chinese medicine it relates to the liver. Which is kind of apt to do with any “toxin”. Hence me checking…

LotusFlowerMM Member

Ah I get that. True, 3-5am is liver isn’t it? I had acupuncture this week and my Chinese Dr said I was doing Wood element already very well which affirms this. Liver – sorting and clearing; Gall Bladder is boundaries, I believe.

Celibate (but that’s been par for the unhappy course for many years), didn’t meet anybody new or old (and I even cast a spell to meet one particular male friend from my past), did start a brand new watercolor class, re-organized my kitchen, felt compelled by Venusian mysticism to buy a purple lipstick (not a color I’d ever thought I’d wear, but have been drawn to lately) and it looks great. The cards and the stars have been repeatedly tlling me the man of my dreams is withn minutes of being met, but that’s nine months now and I didn’t… Read more »

Took myself on a date, I’m great company.

edit: also! spent a bunch of cash on great bras. so pretty. i’ve gone up a size because i’m fatter at the moment. the shop had a professional fitter as well. anyway, perfect fit, first time. this never happens so i bought the lot.
i’m mentioning this as it’s venusian, not because i normally make news about buying underwear.

SojMM Member

Oh me too re fatter. I just pulled out about 20 beautiful cocktail dresses to loan to a friend who is having trouble finding something to wear to a wedding. These dresses all purchased about 5-7 years ago when I was an exercise addicted, carb free love zombie and not very healthy or well at all. Now these dresses are out of my wardrobe I feel the pull to set them free as I don’t know if I will ever fit into them again. It’s a bit heartbreaking though as some are so beautiful. I do need new bras desperately… Read more »

PiMM Member

Yes I agree! Are you in Oz? It was a stand alone store called Acte3. There is a shop I’ve never gone into in the middle of the city that caters to bigger sizes, they look great. The french make the best ones imo. Followed by the Italians but I’ve only ever been happy with the French styles. Thick(er) straps are maybe important so you don’t lose an arm to circulation issues 🙂 but sometimes they design it so the band is stronger instead eg. More boning which is good i think a cognitive adjustment to the styles for bigger… Read more »

Yes I’m in Oz. Thanks for the advice. I have a trip to Sydney in January so will plan a visit to that store. David Jones has a lovely range by Distraction but they embroidered the straps with their brand name which instantly made them look cheap and nasty. Such a shame. I do like Simone Perele but might need to find their outlets. So many bras I see are all about thick cups and padding or vavavoom pushup. I just adore old fashioned underwire balconette style with pretty colours, fabrics and trimmings. I did love some of the Dita… Read more »

PiMM Member

I so agree! I don’t really like those overly moulded, thick bras either. And espesh in summer. The styles that you prefer are definitely around 🙂 I haven’t checked out the von Teese stuff.
There’s a Perele outlet at Birkenhead point, they do a mix of sale and new stuff but you can strike gold. In Melbourne too somewhere (Brunswick?).
It’s always tricky when we change sizes. Happy shopping, whenever you go!

It’s funny you know, I haven’t been my current size for years and 80% of my wardrobe doesn’t fit right now but when i look in the mirror I like what i see more than i ever have. ‘take or leave it’ having small amounts of worship from boys / men in my latest incarnation has helped. I am much less … judgemental… about m/f/other bodies and sex appeal , it was a real tangle for me for a long time :\
anyway that went way off track

Had a 24hr weird love zombie continual flashback to closure bereft relationship from years ago. Tho part of me is convinced this dark energy was initiated from his end. And he’s somehow glued those psychic cords back together but only in the worst places.
Tried to heal my back issue with massage. Failed.
Met no one
Had no exes resurface (save the one 24hr episode which was just me, angry at me)
Asked ghosts of loved ones passed to help me out a bit
Yeah I’m seriously grasping at straws.

After finding a great Naturopath I am concentrating on my well being, nutritious eating, cutting down on wine and soon will begin yoga and gentle exercise.

I’ve pulled myself out of the pit of self sabotage and letting myself go.

This is no mean feat as I have been in the pit for 20 years.

Of all the above list I can only say “check” to “was celibate” but I must say it wasn’t much of a choice and more of a enduring fact going on 4 years. Resisted the super urge to get a second tattoo, but i took appointment with the tattoist to discuss it and have her start the drawing. I will be waiting for Venus to return in Scorpio and Mercury to finish retro to get it: December 7th. I know MR will not be yet out of the shadow but I don’t care.
