Venus, our planet of love and money went retrograde in early March and is about half way through its cycle. When it comes to romance, beauty and your values, Venus retrograde can bring with it many wake ups, shake ups, break ups, and make ups.

Just like a retrograde planet appears to be moving backwards through the sky, aspects of our lives take a look back during this time in order to tie up loose ends, close any doors, or even re-open some.

Retrogrades often get a bad rap, but they are an ideal time to discover what we want from life, and get clear on how to get there. Sometimes it’s by taking those few steps backwards that we can move many more forwards.

Whether you want to shed some bad habits when it comes to romance, find out what you want in a partner, learn to love yourself more, or change your values around your finances, set some intentions during this time and allow life to guide you through it.

The key word of any retrograde period is surrender. When we have intentions or strongly desire something, there can be a lot of ups and downs as we learn whatever lessons we need to know in order to get there. Just remember, ‘a few steps back, many more forwards’. Just make it easier on yourself and find a way to let things go, so you don’t have to keep learning the same lesson over and over again.
