A major retrograde event begins this weekend when five planets (six, if you include asteroid Chiron) will be retrograding at once.
I’ll focus in particular on Venus retrograde which only happens every 1.5 to 2 years and is always a major moment to re-evaluate your love life!
Venus & Uranus Retrograde – Re‑Evaluating Your Future & Love
Venus goes retrograde on Saturday, July 25.
One day later, Uranus stations and goes retrograde on Sunday, July 26.
When a planet retrogrades, its meaning becomes more pressing, more urgent.
The way YOU experience any retrograde depends on how you have been applying the planet’s core symbolism up until now.
In Venus’ case, look at what you have been bonded to recently – a person, money, a substance, a value system.
In Uranus’ case, look at how flexible and open you have been to embracing change, to progress into new territory, welcome different and new experiences, embrace sudden shifts and unexpected breakthroughs. Have you been listening to and following your intuitive hits?
Uranus retrograde asks how you feel about your future. What lights you up, what excites you – have you been liberated of old habits and tendencies that are holding you back?
Venus retrograde puts a strong focus on intimate relationships, love, beauty, money and your values. You’re re-evaluating those areas in your life – getting strong feedback about them.
Relationships to women in general deepen at this time.
What to Avoid
One thing you’ll want to steer away from during Venus retrograde are big NEW financial commitments or investing in pricey items.
It’s best to wait until Venus moves direct again on September 6.
Venus retrograde heals all matters of LOVE.
Often a past relationship comes back to be re-examined.
Revisiting a previous partnership is not only likely, but is really favored when Venus retrogrades. So if you have any unresolved feelings toward someone, it’s the perfect time to address them!
Over the next seven weeks you will be given clear signs on what needs to change and be reassessed. You’ll begin to see everything regarding your love life from a NEW angle, from a new perspective.
Go inwards and re-examine the past. You’ll get a clearer sense on so many things, including whether you feel inclined to recommit to your lover.
If a good relationship is rekindled, then the partnership will actually be deeper and stronger than before. When this is the case, it’s a major sign this person will be with you for good.
So, during these next 7 weeks, observe whether you are more happy and at peace. Feel out whether you feel treasured, nurtured and valued.
3 More Retrogrades – Saturn, Pluto, Neptune
The other three planets that have been retrograding for a while now are Saturn, Pluto and Neptune.
Fortunately, Saturn stations direct (moves forward again) on August 2, and this will allow all of us to implement and manifest more easily again – hurray!!
To recap: Venus always wants ease, abundance and beauty to return to your life.
Venus makes things feel GOOD and effortless.
This beautiful planet is inviting you to acknowledge who and what makes you feel good, loved and valued.
You’re in a safe, beautiful period to let your heart sing!
Love and Blessings,
