Retrograde phases are a good time to slow down, and to take a little extra time and care with communication. Yet it’s also possible to approach them as a journey of discovery and reclamation.
Venus retrograde starts on May 13th going backwards though the sign of Gemini (from 21º to 5º Gemini). She stations direct on June 25th, then goes forward at 5 degrees and 20 minutes of Gemini. Venus, the Goddess of Beauty as ruler of Taurus, and the Goddess of Love as ruler of Libra, teaches that our quality of life is a reflection of our emotional state of being, which attracts experiences and relationships into our life. The Goddess descent pulls us deep into a personal process of emotional alchemy. It’s an opportunity to deepen the understanding of the inner workings of our hearts. This periodic exercise in heart intelligence works individually and in relationships, developing throughout our lifetimes helping us to learn what we need from our relationships in order to grow.
