How Venus will retrograde affect each of the 12 signs in the upcoming Venus retrograde cycle.
Venus indicates all the things which we enjoy, reward and sooth ourselves with. When it moves normally forward, we look for these things from outside-love, amusements, good food, drinks, socialising etc.
But when Venus starts moving in retrograde, for 40 days, we internalize these impulses. We either cannot get access to their outer, worldly manifestations so we are forced to look inside for self soothing, or we have an inner realisation, that the life style we had been pursuing makes us dependant and takes things out of our control.
Imagine how many people self sooth(Venus) through harmful substances, unhealthy foods, wasteful habits or addictive unequal relationships. These things are like drugs for us-they are the darker manifestation of Venus. While looking for love and to feel good(Venus) we get entangled such painful lifestyle.
During its retrograde period, Venus brings us the gift of discovering how to self sooth and find love in healthier, less outer dependable ways, more self-reliant and loving ways.
It is not by chance that in occult and spiritual literature, 40 days is the period the avatar is tested(Buddah, Jesus) and then received a higher initiation/state of being/enlightenment. This comes from the 40 days of Venus retrograde, during which we are all advised to go "into the wilderness"-to turn our eyes away from the seductions of the outer world which are so alluring but also trapping, and to find inner resources of joy and peace.
If Venus is retrograde over an important points in your Horoscope-like Your Ascendant, Sun, Moon or your natal Venus, then you will surely have some important life style change preceded by a period of retreat, reevaluation, self-searching and re-assessment of different areas of your life. It often is about a relationship with someone or a lifestyle choice, which has been unproductive and chained you to an unhealthy pattern.
It is scientifically proved that it takes the brain 40 days to rewire its
neurons and paths, so a new habit is formed or an old one released. Exactly the same length as the Venus retrograde period!!
I have seen people stop drinking, start a healthy life style, do detoxes, release old relationships or habits of soothing-whether it is through shopping, clubbing, smoking or binging. An unhealthy natal Venus engages one in such behaviours.
By the end of the process you will feel more self-love, worth and appreciation. You become cleansed and pure. You have shifted to a more self-sufficient source of soothing. And you know what they say-when you learn how to be kinder to yourself and love yourself-others will do it too. That is why these Venus retro periods can be the best thing that ever happened for our love life-even though it might include a period of purging, painful realisations and withdrawal.
But this is the exactly the process which helps us redirect our devotion(Venus) to the right causes, goals or behaviours.
