Venus Retrograde October 2018
The Venus Planet of Love Retrograde Rollercoaster
Venus Retrograde: October 5, 2018 in Scorpio and goes direct November 16 in Libra.
Venus is the feminine planet and teaches us about what matters most in our life while when in retrograde it shows what needs to be healed and released.
Venus Retrograde in Scorpio brings a deep, mysterious, karmic release with potential wicked ways. She points out the dark side we keep tucked away so we can clean that energy out and fully release it to allow the new into our life.
Venus turns retrograde only every 18-19 months and when it does we all can feel the affects of it. This is known as one of the most significant transits that can happen. The last time Venus was retrograde in Scorpio and Libra was October-November 2010. Look back and see what was happening in your life during that time and try to remember what was released or evolved during that time.
When a planet goes into retrograde it is offering us time to correct, heal, or release. Venus Retrograde is a time of self-discovery, exploration and keeping ourselves in check.
Venus is the planet of pleasure and defines what you love such as partnerships and marriage, what you attract and appreciate as well as money and possessions. Venus affects our values and principles, social, creative, and artistic interests, personal talents and abilities. When in Scorpio it will exhibit persistence and intensity through actions that may not be out in the open.
It is also the planet of beauty and this is not the time to have any elective surgery. Skin enhancements or injections, new Haircuts or color changes are a big no no during this time. This can be an illusion of what might work for you in your desire of change but during Venus Retrograde you may end up very disappointed and need to correct any of changes made.
Venus retrograde is here to say it is time to dig deep into the most sensitive level of our soul. When in retrograde these same things need to be reviewed for they may seem to run cold or have issues that need to be looked at to heal. It can bring challenges in love and relationship to see if they are stable enough to handle growth and navigate through it together.
Oh, you will want to know this part - Venus Retrograde brings back your past….the return of any old flames, ex’s, and lover’s surface, even karmic connections. It is the window of time that Divine has given us to bring closure to any long-dead relationships that have been a mournful love lost.
This period could bring an ending to a worn out relationship that is holding you back and to heal any challenges that have been ignored.
Venus Retrograde is the time that we look within ourselves to gain a clearer sense of what we want, what we can and cannot do without and attracting what we desire. It IS a very powerful time.
We find ourselves being vulnerable, with lots of emotions during this time. This is to help us reflect on what brings us value and what are we holding on to from the past that is limiting us. Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is the the sign of deep emotions going to the dark places. Scorpio is where the carnal sexual desires and appetites reside.
Venus Retrograde will be intense for any Scorpio and Libra signs and most helpful for Cancer and Pisces, but, you need to know this does affect all signs.
With the month of October and Halloween, Venus Retrograde could be viewed as the good witch and wicked witch at this time for Venus is always good but when in retrograde she has a different side. To be in Scorpio she can and will be bringing out her wicked Jezebel ways if not used to heal and move forward.
I offer a warning - This time can bring Karmic connections with people coming into your life in which you feel you have known them before. This is where the wicked ways can seep in bringing a wild love affair and then quickly dying after. Proceed with caution with any new relationship. If during this time you find yourself involved with a new love or relationship, you should know that it could be a narcissistic affair or driven by sexual desire without any foundation to stand. It may have come to teach a valuable lesson for your personal growth but also can bring a deep wound which could take many months to recover from.
This is a good time to revisit creative ideas and it offers us the time to build and create what we want in a relationship, art, business, etc.
It is not a time for lavish spending for you will have buyer’s remorse. It is better to wait until after December 8 for we have Mercury Retrograde starting the very same day Venus goes direct November 16 to December 6, 2018. By December 11 you will be clear.
It is a great time to release the energy that may haunt you of the ex’s, and lost loves by doing this exercise and ritual of putting to rest for good. Hand write a letter to the person or thing that you want to release expressing all your emotions, feelings, anger, pain by pouring out your heart fully to expel any residue of the relationship or situation. THEN ask God/Universe/Divine to release this with love from you completely allowing you to move forward. Read the letter out loud to the higher power, and when finished, burn it completely! Every bit! When finished take a few deep breath’s and know that it is done and focus on what you do want in your life.
NOTE: We just had a New Moon October 8, 2018 offering new beginnings and clean slate for intentions, just make sure you are clear on what you want.
Happy heart, and deep emotional healing!
