As you know, Venus is turning retrograde on Friday. This Venus Retrograde will be in the sign of Aries. Keep your eyes peeled for my Venus Retrograde article in the next couple days. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a few things to prepare for during this Venus Retrograde, and how to constructively work with its energies to make the most out of this rare opportunity.
Venus Retrograde in Aries
Venus in Aries is traditionally considered to be in her sign of detriment. This is because relationship-oriented and harmonious Venus is far from home in Aries, where wills collide in battle for ascendancy. But Venus, adaptable as a climbing vine, makes her presence in Aries known through the archetype of a warrior goddess: one that wins all battles with prophecies of her victory and the unerring faith in her ascendancy.
As Venus turns retrograde in Aries, prepare for a six-week journey that will glorify your sense of independence as a heroic element of your story, one that deepens and resonates when the wider vision of interdependence is acknowledged. Exalt the individual self as a unique ripple of creation in a vast ocean of consciousness.
Expect to feel humbled by the unshakeable union of heaven and earth, for even in their most violent storms, there is harmony and reciprocity between them. Venus retrograde in Aries will offer a six-week period where you can learn to create harmony, even in times of war.
How to Work With the Venus Retrograde
Retrogrades are times for reinvention, redesign, and remembrance. Venus retrograde in Aries is a time for a more vibrantly animated archetype to develop. In any story where you have cast yourself simplistically as heroine or villain; master or slave, expect to see a much more nuanced interpretation emerge.
Here are some ways to work with the energies of the Venus Retrograde:
Reinvention. Tap into Venus’ warrior goddess archetype in Aries by reinventing your relationship with your body. Start a new fitness routine by taking a yoga class, joining a pilates studio, or (if you are really daring) take up boxing. No matter what you do, find something that will raise your spirits.
Redesign. Take an active role in redesigning yourself and your environment. Clear out your closets of clothes you never wear and throw out anything in your environment that does not bring you joy. Get a makeover or redesign your living space. The Venus Retrograde will be an excellent opportunity for extreme spring cleaning both physically and emotionally.
Remembrance. The Venus Retrograde is a great time to evaluate yourself as an individual. Start a journaling practice that will allow you to reflect on the choices that you have made and the person you have become. Recall past relationships that have defined who you are or reflect on where you stand in your life and career. You will find catharsis during the Venus Retrograde, and journaling will allow you to break through any barriers that are holding you back from progress.
