Venus Retrograde

Venus Retrograde

Venus retrograde: every year and a half, Venus goes retrograde for 40 days. Venus is responsible for how we exchange energy, whether that is in our loving relationships or how we are compensated for our efforts.

Retrogrades are times for revision. They sometimes reroute our courses into currents of challenge, but it’s good to remember that often the challenge of retrogrades give us a period for the necessary work of processing. We look backwards and consider where we have been, not just where we are going. Venus retrograde in particular asks us to remember that shadow is an inextricable relationship to light.
