Venus now in a direct motion! So now that Venus, the lady of love and money is not in the direct motion, it may time some time before she is able to shake off the residue from the retrograde. So basically we are NOT out of the woods yet until after October 9. She needs to pick up speed and get back on track. Because Venus rules money, love and social values, within the past few months we may have found ourselves questioning relationships, whether work or personal related. We may have squandered our money, or even re-assessed our financial status. Or a relationship that began under a retrograde, may go through a bit of scrutiny as Venus direct sheds light on matters what may without realizing may have clouded our judgement. In addition, beauty procedures done under a retrograde may need to be touched up, or any social undertakings may be questionable. Selling your home? You may need to rethink the price, or possibly renovations may have gone haywire. Nonetheless, it’s time to call recall and reexamine whatever was done between July 25 through Sept 6.
Also lending to this confusion, is Mercury, the planet of chat moving retrograde Sept 18 through October 9. While we are still picking up the Venus retrograde pieces, tending to out battered wounds, and possibly shattered hearts, Mercury in retrograde in the partnership sign of Libra is all about love relationships, and/or partnerships. To question or not? a total rebirth of how we approach relationships, work or personal related.
Not much of a break since now Venus in direct should be less stressful, however we still have to pay the piper. This may force us to resurrect past issues, or to clean up the mess that was made. Either way we are not completely out of the woods, however thank our lucky stars that both Venus and Mercury are not in retrograde together. At least that allows us breathing space. Sweet relief!
