Venus Retrograde just ended!!! Every 18 months, sensual Venus—the planet that rules love, harmony and compassion, reverses into retrograde motion. This six-week slowdown can be a tricky time for relationships, and our closest ties are tested. If a bond isn’t build of solid stuff, you’ll experience turbulence. While it’s an opportunity to go back and do the necessary work, you’ll see who’s willing to put in that investment…and who only shows up when things are good, fun and easy. Eye-opening to say the least!
We’re all READY for the planets to take a seat (or several) and chill out, but there's one final dramatic twist before the year is up! On November 16, the third and final Mercury retrograde cycle of 2018 began! This happens in the fire sign, Sagittarius, and is felt strongest by Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces.
As with all Mercury retrogrades, you need to watch out for the standard issues around miscommunications, travel delays, technology errors, and unplanned events disrupting your schedule. The travel delays part is especially true with a Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius,as Sags are the sign of traveling and adventure. The biggest communication problems you're likely to face will stem from Sagittarius' tendency to speak first and ask questions later. All fire signs share this hot-headed trait - and interestingly enough, each Mercury retrograde this year was in a fire sign. Because Mercury's energy is so not Sagittarian, speaking too much and not listening enough is a huge issue! When the Sun enters Sagittarius on Thanksgiving, this fiery energy is amplified even more.
This retrograde cycle is definitely a doozy, but after such an outrageous year, would you expect anything different?Luckily, Venus no longer being retrograde helps put everyonein a more congenial mindset. Venus in Libra helps fix any of the drama disrupting your relationships that come from Mercury retrograde. The astrology of 2018 has been very big on relationship issues - every major event from eclipses to retrogrades has had a substantial connection to relationships. ✨✨✨✨ You all have the power to control your reactions to anything that comes your way. . 💫
