Venus retrograde (21 December – 31 January)
More on retrogrades
…. On Saturday Venus turns around, and it will stay in retrograde motion till the end of January. And again, when a planet is retrograde its energies are more inwardly
focussed rather than outwardly expressed. So, things Venusian are likely to become more internalised, more subjective.
Venus energy is experienced in the way that we relate with another. So, when this energy is retrograde we tend to feel our relationships on the inside better than we express them on the outside. Our perceptions about connection and intimacy are subjective, so we are feeling relationship within the context of our own past and pre-conceptions of what relationship means.
This is a great time for getting in touch with our own feelings about our relating, for understanding our own journey on the path of intimacy. The challenge is that it tends to leave us in such a subjective space that we can’t easily see the other’s perspective, and we are likely to project our own Venusian stuff onto the other. Depth of personal understanding of how we relate will be heightened, while true connection and intimacy is likely to require a bit of effort during this time.
Of course none of this is causal, but it does give us an insight into the fundamental interconnectedness of all things!
