Venus Retrograde in Scorpio
October 5th at 10° Scorpio - November 15th at 25° Libra.
Who is Venus?
Venus is the second planet from the sun. She is the warmest planet in our Solar System. Due to her proximity to Earth she is seen as the brightest Planet in our night sky. Venus represents the primordial archetype of the many kinds of Love, all relationships, and the dominance of the feminine. Venus helps us see beauty in every person and every aspect of our being.
What Does Retrograde Mean?
Retrograde is defined as a periodical motion change of a planet or large celestial object that orbits our Sun. Naturally planets and large celestial objects move from West to East. However, in retrograde a planet or celestial object's movement changes from East to West. During a planet's retrograde, they appear stationary in the sky.
What Does Scorpio Represent?
Scorpio represents all that is taboo, passion, mysticism, the subconscious mind, and death (relax not physical death... alchemical transmutation). Scorpios dive into the shadows peircing the veil of unconsciousness to get to underlying triggers in their selves and another's mind. There is no time for beating around a bush. They are scientific and spiritual by nature. And because Scorpios are governed by Mars, the Planet of War and Pluto, the Planet of Alchemical Death, it makes them one of the most powerful signs of the Zodiac.
Venus in Retrograde is no easy task.
Venus Retrograde in Scorpio is something entirely different.
What Does Venus Retrograde in Scorpio Mean?
V.R.I.S (Venus Retrograde in Scorpio) highlights the dark side of all relationships: finances, people, and our subconscious destructive patterns. As Venus stays "stationary" for 40 days, she flips our perception to show the harsh truth we have been trying to ignore.
During this time emotional and physical triggers are manifested within reality.
This is not a curse. This is a blessing.
The rise of pain is not Venus seeking vengeance. She is trying to make us see the underlying wounds that are the causes of our behaviors in all relationships. She strikes at our wounds, for us to heal and become a better version of ourself. Although it may seem harsh it is exactly what we need to step up into a new and higher state of consciousness and empathic abilities. It is the needed rebirth of our hearts, inducing the greatest transformations internally and externally.
So if I may write a letter to V.R.I.S from the collective...
Dear Venus Retrograde in Scorpio,
Thank you. Thank you for helping me see past my self-fulfilling prophecies, rules, and illusions. Thank you for pinpointing the concealed truth behind my actions. Thank you for shaping me to become a better woman/man. I can’t thank you enough for the work you do. Because without you I would dwindle in my daydreams chasing false hopes instead of pursuing my self and my dreams. Venus Retrograde in Scorpio thank you for rekindling what is truly important, my self-worth, for without it I would flow with the wind of comments from beings, instead of being rooted at my center. I now reclaim all parts that were left behind in past relationships to renew my self in all aspects. Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, I’m sorry, please forgive, I love you, Thank you.
My child, I love you as Mother Earth does, I want no harm done to you. Your happiness is my happiness. Your sorrow is my sorrow. The wounds in you are all within my collective being. But the Love that is you is the many loves of my celestial body. I show you your wounds during this time to direct your course towards healing the self. To express yourself healthily instead of suppressing those divine emotions. So you can walk further on the path of Beauty back home to The One Source, God, Love.
I send you my Divine Love. This is all for your higher calling. Highest Blessings.
