Venus finally leaves her Shadow period today, which means that if you have had a major situation playing out since March 5 (with a lead up throughout February), likely around the subject of love relationships, money, your self-value/self-worth, or major 'luxury' purchase that has been put on hold (home, car, furnishings, new wardrobe etc), then you will hopefully be feeling you are emerging from that chapter right about now. Venus retrogrades, like any retrograde, don't delay
After 6 weeks of Retro motion, Venus the planet of love, relationships, beauty, harmony, the Feminine, Women, self-worth, self-love and self-value goes Direct. She is officially out of her Shadow period on 18 May, so if you've been experiencing some major shifts or situations related to these areas, circle that date as it and the days surrounding it may be very significant for you.
Every day from now leading up to that official close of this Venus journey we'll feel a lot l
With Saturn having gone Retrograde a few days ago and Mercury starting his Retro journey tomorrow, these two planets join Venus and Jupiter in the reversing lane. Retro periods have a bad rep where we can feel like aspects of our life have suddenly ground to a halt or aren't going quite the way we wanted them to. However, they are actually pretty busy times because while certain plans are delayed, other issues are intensified. Our attention to these issues usually means that
Venus goes retrograde this weekend from March 5 - April 15. This 6 week period happens every couple of years, often triggering us if there's anything we need to look at regarding love, relationships, money, self-worth, self-value and what/who we value outside of ourselves. This Venus Retro starts on 13 Aries. Aries calls us to be more bold, assertive and action-oriented. Now Retro periods aren't really a time when action on anything is encouraged, but you'll feel a big inner
Photo Credit Coming out of these retrograde/shadow periods is like emerging from a cloud that was making it hard to feel fully 'clear' - or you've been so immersed in getting clear within that you haven't really felt like engaging as you usually would with outer life. That's because those retro times are very much geared toward introspection and review. They are often a time to take stock of where we are at, and look at how we truly feel about our life/work/relationships.

If the retro period is a time when we realise the answers to these questions more clearly, the post-retro period is a time to ground, embody and take action around what we have l
Dear Instagram head honcho's,
How very Venus Retrograde of you to ban #goddess! It is so fascinating to see you being triggered by the very current you are pushing against, love it! I hear that too many women choosing to post naked photos of themselves use #goddess, and I know how naked images of women so upset you, including breast-feeding mothers and nipple-revealing selfies. Women are just so outrageous aren't they!
I can just imagine your triumphant fist-pump when y
Venus is well into her 40 day Retrograde period. She governs all things related to our sense of self-love, self-worth and self-value. Our relationship patterns are often triggered at this time, as are any recurring income/financial issues, highlighting how we truly feel about ourselves deep down, what and how much we allow ourselves to receive, what we believe we are worth, the way we allow ourselves to be treated and ultimately the way in which we treat ourselves. If you nee
Birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli Today Venus enters the territory over which she will retrograde as of July 25, heralding the start of the 'Venus shadow' period. Venus Retrogrades happen just under every couple of years, and offer a fabulous opportunity to review, reshuffle, rewire, heal, clear and transform all that is Venusy: love, relationships, self-love, self-value, self-worth, our inner feminine qualities, how we view ourselves and others as women (both individually an
