Love and Hate Tension is high
The lunar eclipse increases your sex drive but sexual or competitive tension can cause a lack of self-control, impulsiveness, anger, and conflict. Compromise will help avoid hostility, but a tendency to agree to anything just to get your way could lead to buried anger, frustration, loss, and regret.
If dating, sexy action is possible but take care not to lower your standards or put yourself at risk because of your impatient. In a healthy relationship, tension can be relieved through more exhilarating sexual activity. But in a difficult relationship this could bring challenges to the surface.
Frustration and physical tension can be released more safely through sport or exercise. You could also channel this dynamic energy into hard work, or creativity.
This is a time to think about what is really important in your life and what is not. It is a time when your values can become more clear to you. Sometimes we are so busy we just don’t take the time to appreciate these things. When Venus stations retrograde, which it does approximately every 18 months it brings all that to the surface.
When Venus is retrograde it brings focus to our values, relationships and finances. It’s all about love and money The term retrograde means that the planet is moving in an apparent backward motion and therefore it is not operating at full speed. It is sort of like in a recharging mode or cycle.
This is when we want to slow down and take a second look at these areas of our life. It is a time when you will want to take a long hard look at what is really important to us You may find that you are more financially conservative and more attentive to your bank balance. It is also a time when you may want to meet with your financial planner to re-evaluate your finances
As for the love part of this retrograde cycle, if you are in a relationship that is not fulfilling, you may find that it has become more obvious. This is the time that you can work on improving it or making the necessary adjustments and changes.
This is also a time when a past love or lover could come calling again. Or you may be thinking about who you would like to come calling again. Be careful what you think about, as Ernest Holmes wrote in his book “thoughts are things”
I invite you to enjoy this Venus retrograde cycle and take advantage of all that it has to offer. Re-evaluate the areas of your life that deal with love, money and your core values.
