Venus Turns Direct
Well, Venus came out of retrograde over the Easter weekend. This brings to a gradual close the reconsidering / re-evaluating work you've done over the last 7+ weeks in the important life areas of values, relationships, financial management, income generation, spending choices, and property ownership. Mainstream astrology distills Venus' interests down to the basics of "love and money," but as you see, she's involved with lots more than who inhabits your fantasies and how much you have in the bank.
Consciously or not, you've spent the last couple of months defining -- for the future -- "what's important to you." What do you want? What do you need? What do you stand for? How do your choices, both old and new, reveal the person you've become? Venus has been retrograde across the Pisces / Aries cusp point in your chart -- literally the ending-point of closure and release and the starting-point of new vitality and new beginnings.
This carries lots of energy that says you've essentially been born again as an upgraded version of who you were. Who you are from here contains vital changes and adjustments from the person you used to be. You've become wiser, stronger, more authentic, more direct and honest. This inner search has changed you for the better ... and you'll begin building new structures in this life area ... from here.
