Revisiting the Venus Retrograde

This month I thought we could circle back and build on the Venus retrograde information that we discussed last month.

I put together a list of dates of the Venus Star Points (the exact dates of the interior Sun/Venus Conjunctions), beginning in the 1930s through the present. I did not include the conjunctions when Venus was direct (going forward) for two reasons:  First, that would be too many dates to wrap our heads around. Second, Venus spends only 25 days in the sign when she is going forward, but during the retrograde she spends 4 months in the sign.  Therefore, those are the periods most likely to be associated with personal and societal shifts.  You don’t need to spend hours going over the lists, but some dates may stand out for you.  I would suggest considering the 2-3 months before and after the dates as the period of interest.  Look for recurring themes from your life.  For example, I looked at  the Gemini VSP and realized I graduated high school during Gemini VSP in 1980, graduated medical school under the next VSP in 1988.  The Capricorn VSPs in 1998, 2006, 2014, and 2022 all corresponded with job promotions, except the last one which corresponded with finishing my term as chair of our division.  The Aries VSP correspond with the birth of my first child(1993) and the death of my mother(2009), and the death of my grandmother (1977).

Venus retrograde  makes you aware that a phase of your life is coming to a conclusion in order to make room for growth and evolution. She makes you aware of the things that no longer serve you, the wounds that have been healed, the hopes and dreams call to you, and what brings you joy, creativity and satisfaction.  Questions to ponder during this Venus retrograde include:

  • How can you  live with courage, authenticity and flow?
  • Are you ready to shine? 
  • What does it mean to come home to your heart?
  • What experiences serve the growth of your soul?
  • How do you listen to the whispers of your soul?
  • Are you open to new possibilities?
  • How do you find the courage to face something you fear?

How do you find sacredness in every day routines?
