In the past couple of weeks have you felt sluggish, irritable, moody, or extremely insecure? Have past and present issues surrounding love been popping up? On March 4th Venus, ruler of love and emotions, went into retrograde. If you follow my blog you'll know that I often blog about being effected when Mercury goes retrograde. Venus rules all manner and matters of love. Self worth, esteem, creative talents, art beauty of self and our surroundings. She also rules over finance and abundance.
Now just like all retrogrades now is a time to make room in our lives and hearts for more love and abundance.
Set the standards higher and don't settle for anything less. At this time we may feel ourselves being extra critical but through this we can gain deep insight as to what we really want. At this time we may find ourselves looking into the past. Judging, regretting or feeling upset over what has been. Remember this doesn't serve anyone any good. But what you can do is look at the past gain wisdom from the situations, and move forward to a new beginning.
Don't fret if the love bug is on your mind. Venus will stir up some lusty or even lovey dovey vibes. Venus has a very impulsive and passionate nature. You may feel fate drawing you to someone and changing your immediate course at present time. Keep in mind what you truly want from her and try to see the difference between lust and love(like). These new love interest will hold a very unique and significant impact on our lives.
Here's the kicker. If you are feeling the effects of insecurity during this retrograde then now is not the time to make rash relationship decisions.
It is time to take yourself into consideration. Nurture yourself and give yourself some much needed love. Treat yourself as the goddess you truly are. You need not look outside yourself to feel wanted, accepted or desired.
I've been feeling with a lot of emotions lately. Mainly surrounding my self worth in relationships and even in my business goals. Wondering if I should bite the preverbal bullet and give up on all accounts. I kept telling myself that I was taking a much needed break,. I kept procrastinating on almost everything that has brought me joy. When your self worth is compromised you start to make excuses. You slowly deteriorate and become uninspired. It was at the start of this retrograde that I finally threw my hands up and yelled, "enough"!
I decided I needed to make a choice, I could give up or I could get up and keep trying.
Well I absolutely despise the thought of giving up. Almost to a fault. So I got my shit together, made some lists, burned some intentions and got back into the saddle. I know that I need to walk my walk and talk my talk. Even if you start off slowly, take breaks, have mini meltdowns, just keep going. Your journey is so important to your well being.
Things to look out for during Venus Retrograde:
