Venus has been retrograding for a good while now and chances are you’ve felt quite the shift within. As we are finally moving into November these energies are really building up.
Venus for those who might not be aware is the planet of love. It has dual rulership over Libra and Taurus and controls two areas of our lives. It affects what we value, the pleasures we take in life, and so much more. That being said, since it’s in retrograde things will be quite hectic.
Venus will be retrograding until November 16th and we will be feeling an increase of tension within. This retrograde throughout the last few weeks of October was a bit confusing but things will begin to make a lot of sense as the days pass by. You are most likely going to be pushing your limits and really reflecting on how you are as a person.
You should be using this Venus retrograde to improve how you feel about yourself and put you where you need to be so that you can really find the sense of self-love that you deserve. You are going to be given every opportunity to lighten your karmic load and let go of the baggage before you. That being said, you will be facing a lot of problems and will need to really work hard to get your impulsiveness under control.
If you are in a relationship you need to think about whether or not this person is who you want to be with. You need to figure out if the doubts you have been having are worth ending things over. While now is not the time to communicate with one another, it will soon be the time to do so and you need to have a good idea of where you’re going to head.
Venus opposite Uranus (4°23′) usually signals a change in your love life. If you already have a partner, then an unexpected event may cause a lot of upset tension. Perhaps your partner rejects your need for a change or excitement in the bedroom. Even flirting may lead to some drama in the relationship. A healthy relationship would endure such transgressions and a permanent separation would be unlikely. An affair at this time would more likely lead to a rapid separation.
If dating, a new romance now would certainly be exciting. It is most likely, however, that it would be a short-lived relationship. But if you are the unorthodox type and need your freedom, a new relationship with a similar person could even lead to marriage. As Uranus rules the internet, you could fulfill your need for a change through internet dating or other stuff.
Whatever your situation, if love is not an option then change and excitement can manifest in another area of life. Financial windfalls are possible but take extra care with your money. Beware of a tendency to risk it all on suspect schemes or gamble it all away. You could easily find stimulation some other way such as gaming or another form of entertainment.
The rest of this retrograde is going to continue to bring a lot to the table. Don’t waste any time letting them work for you. We don’t have much time left and you need to make the most of what energies are facing you.
