Get Ready To Feel Venus’ Backspin: Alchemy Of Transformation

From today, Venus will begin to travel in Retrograde for a little over a month till the 15th of November. These forty days are given to us to reflect on the relationships we share with those around us and especially our romantic connections.

Moreover, Venus is going to be moving into Scorpio at the same time so all sorts of difficult topics are going to come up for discussion. Scorpio has an intensity that is unmatched by any other sign of the zodiac and its part in this Venus Retrograde is going to make it an unforgettable. In fact, you can consider this the Romeo and Juliet of all phenomena related to astrology.

The Alchemy Of Change

Death is one of the discussions that will come up because of Scorpio but luckily for us, only figuratively. There will be no literal death in this period but everything you think you know will change more than you ever thought things could. It is a challenging phase but you need to get through it because it will help you get back on the right track. You’ll be pushed above and beyond your limits but in the end you will not regret any part of it, no matter how painful it has been.

The Influence Of Scorpio – Going All In

Representing all things feminine, Venus influences romance, finances, ethics and relationships. On the other hand, Scorpio governs the circle of life, what we will leave behind after death, what we have to give to those around us as well as to the universe, as well as our most ingrained instincts and the subconscious.

When she’s moving through Scorpio, Venus appears as a seductress. In her quest for love that is passionate and sincere, she’ll make you remember what your desires truly are. You’ll feel inspired and driven to put yourself out there with everything you’ve got. All your emotions will be heightened and you will be filled with an intense passion. You will no longer be able to hide your innermost secrets, even the ones you’ve kept hidden from yourself.

The Influence of Libra – Working On Your Relationships

Though this period begins in Scorpio, Venus will gradually move into Libra and it is here that your transformation in these forty days will attain its finality. Since Libra symbolizes relationships, the results of this retrograde period will have something to do with our connections to those we love.

It is important to note that Libra is the only sign not represented by a living creature. The balanced set of scales signifies reason and when Venus moves into Libra, she aims to help you find a sense of rationality even in your most passionate of moments. You will have to find a balance between your own desires and that of others. To get what you want, you have to think about what you have to give in return.

Is This Not A Good Time?

It is certainly not an easy passage because Venus will throw all kinds of unwanted things from your past back into your present. Everything that you’ve been avoiding will come rushing into your life demanding your time and attention. Venus is challenging you to make the changes you’ve been dreading because they are for your own good. You cannot keep ignoring these issues forever.

As hard as this time may be, you will come out of it a better person. Keep your heart and mind open, reflect on what you truly desire and be grateful for having been given this opportunity to turn yourself around.
