Venus began her retrograde phase yesterday. For the next six weeks we will experience an increased awareness of the issues that Venus brings to us. Venus is the planet that rules all that we value highly: love, romance, relationship, money all that we see as beautiful.

This is a time to consider where we are in our lives regarding relationships and possessions. Who and what do we desire? Are our desires reasonable, practical or healthy for our future? How would our desires be changed if we suddenly possessed the objects of our desire? Do we rule our desires or do our desire rule our lives? Consider the relationship we have to our possessions. Do we rule our ‘stuff’ or does it rule us?

George Carlin talks about ‘Stuff’

During this time, what we desire is elusive to us. This is a time for us to observe and develop curiosity about our attachments to people and possessions. This is not a time to take action or bring your relationships to a new level or to purchase new shiny toys.
Hold still in the situation you are in. Work to clean up any messes left behind. Complete projects that have been left undone involving ‘stuff’ that you already own. Clean up any unfinished business that presents itself from relationships that have resurfaced from the past. What has been left undone. Take care of old business now so you can move forward into what works best for your future.

Most importantly, take this time (between now and November 18) to look at where you are in your life, right now in regards to your relationships and possessions. What have you learned since the last Venus retrograde cycle (Spring 2009)? What is working? What still needs to be adjusted? What is the most important for you to consider in moving forward? Can you work with the situations you currently find yourself in or do you need to begin anew?
Don’t make decisions now!
Evaluate… observe… ponder… consider…
