This is the business end of Venus Retrograde in Capricorn – the phase when every single Venusian issue* intensifies, just as the planet is on the verge of turning Direct.
Like any Venus Retro, you can anticipate an amped-up focus on the past. You contemplate the paths not taken or the paths you took but now think you should have dynamited.
But this is not a goo-goo gaze back or even something to address with a yogic shrug/chakra cleanse/ritual. It’s in Capricorn, remember. So the mind naturally turns to harvest, crops, and gardening metaphors – soils, the season, invasive weeds that arrived via weird winds.
You don’t want closure: you’d like to invoice – for the time, seduction money, cul de sacs presented as freeways, rigor-rictus from bright smiles when your psyche was resisting and well, a hefty ‘sundries.’
Are the wisdom and gravitas represented by this particular Venus Retrograde worth the angst-tripping? You’ll know by March when Venus re-encounters Uncle Pluto.
