Venus in Retrograde

cold weather has returned to my town with sleet and hail and snow and rain (pretty much the works is going on outside at this very moment). there’s a folk belief that being cold leads to bad dreams. i don’t necessarily believe this, but i do believe that certain planets can cause havoc: the moon and venus. perhaps it’s their proximity to us that gives them a deeper effect to our internal energy than the other planets, but whenever something is going on with those two it seems to manifest itself in my dreams.

last night i had a dream about an ex-boyfriend from years and years and years ago that left me feeling very tense and angry. we didn’t exactly part on good terms, and every now and then that comes back to haunt me. usually when that happens i’m tempted to get some resolve or have a last word (i know where to find the guy) but thankfully another part of me remembers that doing that is a terrible idea.

besides being so totally not worth it, there’s clearly a lesson here that venus is trying to bring to my attention.

venus is retrograde in aries, so like my tendancy (and many others i know) she’s stalled in a sign that normally exudes passion and explosive energy (fun, very very tempting in an “i-just-can’t-leave-you-we-have-such-great-sexual-chemistry-but-we-constantly-fight” sort of way). it’s time to explore this issue.

it may not necessarily show up in our personal life, but this is a time when it’s quite possible that our passions (or in whatever way we’re finding some personal indulgence) could cause us some trouble, kind of like how my insecurities about my past relationship are coming back to bother me now.

however, bringing these troubles to the forefront will to some effect do a little spring cleaning of the heart chakra and yes, possibly cause some ills, but change and discovery often does.

from now until direct station in mid-april, use this time to reveal how venus in retrograde is working in your life (for or seemingly against!).
