We have been through several retrogrades like the rounds of Mercury retrograde that affected our thinking and communication.
The past summer’s Mars retrograde affected our temper and created problems with decision making.
From October 5th to November 15th it’s Venus’ turn to take a retrograde. Yes, it will have some effect on your life. But will the world come to an end? Of course not! If you follow certain steps, you can pass through this phase without any problem. Just be a bit careful, that’s all.
How will it affect you?
Venus retrograde means that the power of the planet Venus will diminish. Venus rules over beauty, love and your precious possessions – so they are likely to be affected. Does that mean you’ll end up single and broke? No, it’s not that drastic.
This is the period when you should start introspecting and valuing whatever you have, the relationship you are in and the possessions you currently have. Am I in a proper relationship? Is it taking up too much of my time? Am I giving it enough time? Do I need these stuffs? These are questions we forget to ask ourselves, and this is the time to do so.
Can anything be done?
However, since Venus will be retrograde, it’s good to be careful and cover up certain bases. Some of the things that you can do are:
- Clean your closet. Think of the stuff you might have hoarded and don’t require. Stuffs that are taking up space. Try to sell it and get some wealth. It’ll help you in the future.
- Think about getting a new aesthetic this fall or winter. Paint your room, give a new style to your décor or just think about getting new wallpapers. This is the time for planning so invest your thoughts in it. Don’t go and buy anything just now!
- Keep an eye on your investments and how they are happening. Don’t spend money needlessly and don’t change strategies of earning. This is not the time to experiment.
- You will be reconnecting with some of your old friends, or exes too. That can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you deal with it. But it will create a support system for you.
- Read and read and question yourself. You may not change your mind, but you can be open to other opinions in this time.
Don’t do this!
With the Venus in retrograde, you should try to avoid doing certain things until the phase passes by:
- Don’t experiment with a new look. You might have dreamt about it and this may come as bad news but don’t buy your dream expensive coat right now. Pause on your desires till November 15th.
- Don’t change your hair drastically like straightening it or getting bangs. Trimming is just fine.
- Don’t spend too much or invest on expensive stuff. You’ll have the desire but wait till the November 15th. Things are not going to run away from you.
- You’ll reconnect with your exes and this will include exes who have done you wrong. Don’t engage with them too much. Just ignore!
- You will have to avoid peace-making sessions. This may sound confusing since peace-making is positive, but at this time, you must accept certain divisions. Come back to them once November 15th gets over. You’ll have time.
Too many things to consider isn’t it? Well, we can’t control the planets. Let’s control our temptations a bit more, and we will have a fulfilling October-November. Believe it!
