As seen from Earth’s perspective Venus started going “backwards”: instead of seeing Venus each night appearing a bit more to the east, from now on it will appear each night a bit more to the west, getting closer and closer to the Sun. Eventually Venus will get too close to the Sun to be seen at all, and will disappear from the evening skies, later to re appear again on the ‘other side of the Sun” as a morning star in the east just before sunrise.
If you don’t know how to find Venus yet – it’s easy to spot these days: it’s the first planet to appear at sunset, brightest and biggest, to the west, later on to set in the west. But as I said – it’s going to disappear from our evening skies soon.
Venus is the conduit of love and feelings and as so it is responsible for our emotions, feelings and love life. It also affects women strongly as it holds the magic of beauty and femininity.
Its retrogression will affect all these matters above, making our emotional life and our relationships prone to problems and disharmony.
But a retrogression period is not only about problems – it is also a time of development and breakthroughs in the same area the planet is responsible for.
As Venus brings to life the problems and issues we have concerning feelings, love and femininity, it also lights the way towards the places we can develop in and the lessons we should learn about matters of the heart.
This is a time to learn more about our feelings, to go deeper into understanding our relationships and a time to make the needed changes concerning the way we perceive ourselves as women (this goes to the feminine gender readers…)
As we learn more about ourselves and use the time of retrogression for development we rise above the astrological influence upon us, and find an inner core that will not be affected by the planets’ movement.
