Because of its proximity to Earth orbit, a Venus retrograde is rare. However, starting on December 19 and running through January 29, Venus will indeed be in retrograde.
Venus rules both Libra and Taurus – of course, she is a woman, she has to do both! Her domain is love, relationships in general, money and creativity.
Retrogrades are not bad! They are a time to go within and examine our relationship with the planetary energies. So where do you need to examine your relationship with these Venus areas! Take the time – it is winter – we are supposed to be on an “inward mode” anyway….to take a look at how you can use the Venus energy better.
Happy New Year.
