Did you feel Mercury retrograde was a challenge? Embrace yourself for Venus retrograde!
Temptation, temptation, temptation…
The days and weeks in quarantine lock down appear to have merged into one, you may be feeling like a butterfly hibernating in her cocoon, healing, growing and resting. With freedom on the horizon, the sun beaming luminously, you’re ready to come alive again, open your wings and smell the nectar of summers’ flora, but not just yet sister! It’s not quite time yet to escape from your cocoon fully.
As with all retrogrades, we’re moving backwards, 7% to be specific in this case of Venus retrograde. This being quite rare, means you may feel more intense emotional energies within and be triggered by experiences from your past. Anytime a planet goes into retrograde, it becomes harder to think clearly and see the visible truth. You will be blinded by the illusion of the reality you wish to experience vs. actuality. Sound familiar?
Reminiscences from the past may resurface, old relationships, old flames, friendships, insecurities regarding self-worth or abundance may manifest out of the blue, tempting you to look backwards to fill the void you may be experiencing right now. Lack of abundance, loneliness, physical connections…
But don’t do it, don’t cave. Leave your blasts in the past, and focus on experiencing reality for what it truly is, the present moment and for the magic that is yet to come.
This is the time to remain within your inner retreat, your universe (you-in-verse) and reassess your mind, all things Venus; love, beauty and money. You will be much more introspective if you stay here and master the art of filtering out and releasing what no longer serves your highest good.
Take this retrograde to open your heart chakra, release emotional wounds and finally appreciate the beauty that exists within you. Through acts of self-love and self-admiration, you will be equipped with the wisdom you need to see your allure, receive abundance and create long lasting relationships that will last a lifetime, built from a place of love, not fear. When you focus on renewal, growth and expansion, the universe will mirror this back to you.
