Venus retrograde begins today in Capricorn and lasts until January 29, 2022. During this transit, we can expect to hear from exes, reevaluate relationships, discover new and inventive ways to save money, and raise our confidence.
The main focus will be on ourselves. We could all get a little heady and second-guess our actions, which is why it will be necessary to add some self-care into our daily routine. It makes sense, considering Venus is the planet of sensual pleasures, money, and self-love.
You might feel a bit introverted during the Venus retrograde, all the more reason why you should veg out and start a book you’ve always wanted to read. Do something for fun, just for you. Trust us, you’ll enjoy getting swept away in your imagination.
And don’t shy away from expressing your sentiments during this Venusian backspin. You could be confused about your emotions, which might diminish your inner vibe. Love yourself more! Let your feelings about yourself be known. Practice saying affirmations in front of a mirror to boost your confidence and self-esteem. It’s time to get more mindful and become physically, mentally, and emotionally present. Use this retrograde as a time to understand your emotions on a deeper level. Brainstorm ways to be more mindful by making a list and incorporating your ideas into your daily routine.
Venus turns retrograde early this morning and six hours later Chiron turns direct. Both of these shifts dramatically impact our relationships with those around us. The Sun’s sextile to Jupiter seems to aid our adjustment to these shifts but we need to maintain a delicate balance between pursuing new approaches and sticking with what we know. If we listen carefully, new information will give us important intuitive clues. In this atmosphere, impatience is especially destabilizing — suggesting that over-confidence will quickly get us into trouble. We are prone to defensiveness and feelings of inadequacy when we can’t find any successful strategies.
