Venus retrograde: endings and new beginnings

 

 

Venus went retrograde on May 15th. Venus is connected with relationships, love, art, money, beauty, harmony, etc and the capacity to attract to oneself all that is desired and valued. It can be challenging to see the positive side of any retrograde period, but truly there are gifts inherent in the retrograde process. Venus retrograde is about reevaluating what is actually desired and valued in the present and integrating that new awareness. It’s a natural part of the cycle, though it can be uncomfortable and a struggle to let go of old cherished concepts. We are now in the part of the retrograde cycle associated with “endings.” Patience and allowing the unknown to be unknown may be required until Jun 5th when Venus lines up with the Sun, which will reinvigorate her and start a phase of “new beginnings” in Venus related areas of life. The Venus/Sun conjunction on Jun 5th is the time to inwardly set intentions for a new cycle and to create new Venusian energy patterns (in relationships, love, finances, etc). Then when Venus goes direct on June 27th, those intentions can take hold.
