Venus Retrograde May 13-June 26
From May 13-June 26, Venus is retrograde. It will be an ideal time to reflect on the pleasure derived from one’s ambitions and efforts. Romantic and business partnerships can be seriously tested. Avoid making major financial changes or purchases as they will be regretted later. The books claim that during a Venus retrograde, the market is too expensive. Starting a new job on a Venus retrograde will lead to regret afterward. I have seen this over and over where the person either detested the job after Venus went direct or they wound up discovering coveted information.
Affection is stagnant and inwardly expressed. This is not a time to start dating or get married. If you are paying for matchmaking or dating service, freeze your membership. It will not be the best time to start swiping left or right on dating apps.
The upcoming Venus retrograde will be at 21 Gemini. I believe history repeats itself. Review what was going on in your life during the previous retrogrades periods that were close to the same position as follows: June – July 1996. There will be similarities where you review and revise what you find pleasurable and worth bonding onto. This is truly an art of reflection. Take a stroll down memory lane and write down what was going on in your life. If necessary, consult a calendar. You will see many similarities.
Technically speaking, the full effect of a planet’s retrograde is wiped out after it reaches past the shadow period. So on July 29, the full effects of Venus Retrograde are gone. The energies improve before the shadow exits. One can carry out new ventures.
Venus also rules beauty and beauticians. Under the current pandemic, taking matters into their hands and heads is not recommended. Careful giving yourself a “Pandemic Haircut” or “Pandemic Chemical service.” Embarking a new relationship with a new stylist is not recommended.
I noticed 48 hours ago a building in my community started re-painting their building a different color. Unless it was a former color, I do not recommend it. Yet, I still do not recommend repainting or renovating on a Venus Retrograde. From a business perspective, that building may generate results that may not be positive.
Work carried out may be expensive or limited. Worse, the work may need to be redone after the retrograde completes.
During this retrograde, there will be a lot of reflection in the current social distancing and communication. Though there are improvements between now through June 25, I believe the best improvements will be after July 29.
