The Cosmic Column – for all the signs!
Your weekly look at the astrological weather for the week ahead.
This week sees a relatively rare astrological phenomena taking place. I’m sure that if you’re into astrology, you will have heard about Mercury retrograde? That happens about four times a year.
In this case, what’s happening is that the planet of love and abundance, Venus, is going retrograde. So yes, we have Venus retrograde and it’s happening this week. (It only happens every 18 months).
Whenever planet goes backwards, anything related to that planet is stalled or turned in on itself. In this case, it has various ramifications.
Venus, as I mentioned, is the planet of love and abundance. Right now she is going to be going backwards in the sign of Gemini. That means wherever you have the sign of Gemini in your chart (and we all have Gemini somewhere), you get Venus for an extra long stay. That’s the upside. The downside is you may go through a period of wondering how much anything related to that part of your chart really matters to you. This in itself is not a bad thing to wonder about but it can tug on the heart strings, as you go through the process.
It’s not the idea time to make large purchases if you can help it.
Let’s run through where that is for you. Remember to read your rising sign if you know it! (Don’t know your Rising Sign? Click here to find it out for free.)
