A lot of people seem to be worried about the current phase of Venus retrograde. For those who need to know, Venus is the planet that symbolizes romance, beauty, sensuality, pleasure, comfort and luxury as per astrological correspondences. Retrograde refers to the apparent reversal in the planets movement, in which it looks like it is going backwards instead of its usual path as seen from earth. Retrogrades are symbolic of past issues returning to us and their effects can be felt as intensely difficult or easier depending on the zodiac that the planet is transiting or passing over.
Many of us have required lessons and messages from our past, including our past lives. Until we heal the issue from the root cause the patterns of negativity keep returning throughout life and in other lives or rebirths as well. Unless we cleanse and release our inner unhappiness from our deepest self we are unable to manifest only positive and happy situations in our life. This is true for all areas of our life and love is no different.
First of all let me clarify that the positions of planets as per sidereal or Vedic astrology being closer to the actual placement of the planets as seen from earth are very different from the ones followed by most western astrologers who are often a zodiac away in their analysis. Venus retrograded in Leo on 25th of July and will be entering retrograde in Cancer on the 13th of August and will remain retrograde till 6th of September. After retrograde is over, Venus will travel again from Cancer to Leo on September 30th and shall stay in Leo till November 3rd before entering Virgo where it feels more comfortable as compared to the previous two zodiacs. As per vedic astrology, Venus in Leo and Cancer both can be problematic owing to the strained relationship of Venus with the Sun (lord of Leo) and Moon (lord of Cancer). Tensions in love and romance as well as issues concerning wealth and satisfaction can be blocking for many people who are living life unconsciously. Venus in Leo brings stress concerning our independence vis-a-vis our partnerships whether in career or love. Many might feel torn between their own personal goals and the demands of partnership. Venus in Cancer can bring moodiness, emotional downs and mistrust among people who might be connected in love or work. People from the past might resurface along with the same patterns or situations that were there before and you will have to figure out how to let go and release what is unnecessary in your life. Strengthening your will to do so will help. This is not the time to try love spells to bring back your ex who will certainly be more harmful than helpful to you on your life-path. Consider being more self-sufficient and enhance your self-worth while saying goodbye to all that is not in your best interest.
So is this phase of Venus retrograde more important for those who are of the Leo and Cancer zodiacs? First of all kindly do not follow your western sunsign for this analysis. Secondly, all of us have Leo and Cancer somewhere or the other in our birthcharts, even if it may not be our personality related zodiac. Our career, health, marriage or wealth for instance may be affected depending on which house Leo or Cancer represents in your natal chart. Therefore this phase connects all of us and not just those who belong to the raasi or vedic moonsigns of these zodiacs of Leo and Cancer. Get a Vedic astrologer to assess your individual birthchart for an accurate analysis.
It is very important to note that those who are highly conscious have as usual little to fear as they have the power, wisdom and knowledge to transform all energies into something positive and useful for them, no matter what the stars foretell.
Therefore my suggestion to you all – perform healing spells after taking past life therapy so that your past life issues that might revisit you between 25th of July to 6th of September can be healed from the root cause. Always try to free up your willpower and manifestation potential through inner work and meditation. An expert who can perform regression, spells and counseling along with astrological and tarot divination is best for you in this healing process as you guide or facilitator. You can also join some of my courses and keep reading my books to get more in-depth awareness about these although I try my best to be available for any healing session or consultation through my website if you need it.
All the best!
