We’re a little over halfway through the 2018 Venus Retrograde now, with Venus having recently ducked back into her Libra stronghold after spending a debilitating several weeks in Scorpio. “Debilitating” just about says is all, in fact – ever since Venus began treading in the footsteps of her pre-retrograde path back in September, it’s been quite a wild ride for many of us; both financially and in terms of relationships. Her retreat back into Libra serves as a fortifying and restorative influence; a calm eye in the midst of a considerable amount of material and relational uncertainty due Venus being periodically blitzed by shocking Uranus & the fated Nodes. This was the plot twist no one saw coming; a bolt from left field that instantaneously cleared the air and brought illuminating clarity regarding our liberation from stagnant or perhaps even disempowering financial or relationship scenarios, but likely also left us reeling in slack-jawed astonishment.
With Venus now back into Libra, though, we’re looking to regain a sense of inner peace and equilibrium that will serve us well in the weeks ahead; specifically as Venus clashes with Uranus and the Nodes a final time in late November. Fate is strongly in play when it comes to our financial situation and partnerships; we have absolutely no control over it. But we’re being awakened to new possibilities now; gaining radical and objective clarity about thorny issues that may have previously had a “stuck-and-f***ed” kind of feel. It’s easier now than ever to identify where a preference for the finer things in life or even a partner’s company may have left us overleveraged or perhaps even enslaved in a certain sense. Venus regaining her composure through her re-entrance into Libra represents a moment where she can re-evaluate the situation and re-orient herself so that she has greater freedom of movement going forward – ponder this and what it may possibly mean for your wallet and heart over the next month.
