So here it is, Venus Retrograde. From today October 5, 2018 through November 16, 2018 the Goddess of Feminine Energy, Money, Love, Self Worth & Value, goes into her Yin state and we will all feel the effects for our greatest well being and healing.
Venus Retrograde allows us to evolve our relationship to Relationships, Self Worth & Money.
Retrogrades seems to always trip people out (including me, tbh!) but, think of Retrogrades this way: when we go inward, we are so so so deeply rewarded and looked after by the Universe and Life Energy itself.
This is why personal development, health & wellness, spiritual work and the like equate to living a much more fulfilling and ultimately peaceful existence. Keep this in mind as I traverse some of the energies Venus Retrograde presents to us.
Ways to Honor Venus Retrograde:
Self Love - practice mirror work, loving yourself through pain or challenge, being your own best friend, being gentle, going into your own Yin state when you feel tired or shut down.
Money Management - Try a new way of relating to your money, whether that be spending for pleasure, self investment or tightening up your budget. Managing our Money as women is deeply important & something i’ll be going into in depth in my Live Women’s Empowerment Course starting on Tuesday.
Staying Inspired - Turn inward. What inspires you? What gives you pleasure? Explore Venusian qualities in your life. Case in point, tonight I am going to the natural hot springs in LA, something I NEVER do. Water energy = feminine energy. I always get beautiful ideas & fresh perspectives when I get out of cleansing, fresh water.
Heal Old Wounds around Relationships - Forgive your past. Do a meditation or simple ritual on the New Moon in Libra Oct. 9th, honoring the New Energy making its way into your current relationships & thanking all of the lovers, relationships, etc. you’ve had your entire life for all that they have taught you. This is deeply liberating and beautiful and makes way for fresh energy to enter your current relationships. I also suggest EFT Tapping to heal or let go of any old wounds around love, sex & the like.
5. Honor Your Inherent Worth - Stuff may come up for us during this Retrograde that really makes us question our worth. Our deeper work is knowing our worth is inherent, meaning, it is there simply because we breath. That can be so challenging in a world that defines worth based solely on how we look, what we wear, our status, etc. My Capricorn Rising deeply struggles with this! So I look forward to how I can heal and strengthen my resolve here during this Venus Rx.
