Part 1: Venus goes Retrograde (Mar 6-Apr 17)
Heard from your ex yet?
Venus Retrograde is often a time of old flames igniting, or at least reappearing to remind us of what we one loved, lost or longed for. Is it so we can reconnect? Chances are it's really to show us how far we've come and to get a handle on what we are now attracting. After all, we only attract ourselves to ourselves - and yes, that means the abuser in your life reflects the feeling that you yourself need that sort of treatment.
How many of us love ourselves FOR our flaws, and for the journey of healing issues and regaining a sense of completeness?
How many of us like to be alone - which really means "all one" of course. Being alone and happy means we like who we are - after all it's the company we keep 24/7.
How many of us enjoy where we are right now?
That's a big one. We can always improve our situation. Often by moving away from troubled times by looking the other way, or walking in the other direction, which takes courage. However, Venus Retrograde asks us to at least love our situation in a new way - loving it doesn't mean accepting it as a way of living permanently, but that we attracted it in the first place.
Then we can begin the step of changing it all in accordance with our new values and desires and needs.
So when faced with an old love, love feeling or longing:
don't ask yourself if they have changed,
but enjoy seeing how far you, yourself
All of us will face at least one returned romance, to see if we have lost love for the object, or if we have found that love within, and no longer need a token of it on the outside.
Inner treasures discovered now, can only lead to outer treasure after Venus goes Direct.
