Venus retrograde ends today! So Venus is now moving forwards again in your chart. Here’s where…
Venus is now moving through your twelfth house of secrets and sleep. If you find yourself being required to make some sacrifices for someone you love at any point over the next few weeks, do it with pleasure, if you can. This Venus cycle is partly about putting someone else’s needs before your own. You might not get instant thanks for what you do, but the good karma will eventually find its way back to you. On the other hand, be very careful to avoid bad karma now. Especially be careful if you’re thinking about getting involved with someone who is not really available to you. Quell any desires to get involved in any love triangles. Let me put it bluntly: take care before you either have an affair or seduce someone who’s attached elsewhere. You have been warned! Similarly, be careful if you feel like you’re giving or getting mixed messages romantically now – sometimes during this cycle it’s impossible to be CLEAR. Confused by love? Far better to be patient. Being in this cycle means the next Venus cycle sees the love planet in your own sign. And if you think that sounds good, you’re right.
Speaking of Venus and love, there’s a link to a free love chart based on your time, date and place of birth here.
This part of the year was always meant to be fun, as various planets, especially sexy Mars, visit your Flirtation Zone. So if you are still stuck in the past and having a rubbish time, use this week to make some changes. Loving Venus will be back in yoursign before too long. What’s not to like? The one thing that could hold you back now is negative thinking. Ditch that and replace it with some self-love and high self-esteem.
The new moon in your sign on the 8th provides a birthday month blessing offering you a blank canvas of sorts – perfect for affirmations and implementing new intentions. If you’ve felt stuck or blocked in some area of your life, at school or work, use this time to transform and consciously push through issues.
The initial changes may be unsettling but you’ll soon feel revitalised and empowered. Part of harnessing this power is, ironically, learning when to release your grip and let things unfold around you without feeling the need to control everything. There’s something to be said about going with the flow and once you strike a balance you’ll feel more at peace.
Things are looking up this month overall, particularly on the money front, helping you to celebrate in style! Apart from the Sun’s annual visit putting a spring in your step Jupiter, the planet of plenty, commences a two year stint in your money sector on the 9th. This placement is known for creating prosperity and luck, but don’t wait for opportunities to come knocking. The more proactive you are the better and greater the results will be whether you’re after part time or fulltime work.
Having said that, there are other factors at play with your finances, so caution, forethought and planning are also required for success.
Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect is in your money sector throughout the month but it turns retrograde on the 17th. This means that before the 17th, your money smarts will be operating at max capacity enabling you to negotiate, think up money-making schemes and formulate wonderful goals, whether you’re after more pocket money or a pay rise.
This is also a good time to get the ball rolling, talk turkey and take action. However, after this time retrograde Mercury which is synonymous with delays and misunderstandings could create stop-starts and a bit of havoc. Avoid signing on the dotted line, read all terms and conditions thoroughly and revise, rethink and research. If you use this time to do your homework you’re bound to come up with better money-saving alternatives.
Regarding money a blast from the past could surprise you or a secret you’ve harboured for years may finally surface.
