Having barely got her toes wet in the chilly, no-nonsense territory of Virgo, Venus this year turned tail and headed straight back to the more welcoming climate of Leo. She will be retrograde there, covering ground she already traveled recently, until September 6. She won't try that trek across Virgo again until October 8.
Meanwhile, her backward travels will have helped us change some of our attitudes and practices in managing relationships and money. One way or another, these adjustments will be more suitable for what we'll meet -- and handle -- in the future.
Retrograde energy -- which is part of all planetary cycles -- is the cosmic evidence that we need to rethink our habits and tactics from time to time, that new information and different conditions call for a different approach to life's serious concerns. We need to reprocess our ideas and perspectives ... and become wiser based on experience.
When Mercury is Retrograde, we need to reorganize the contents of our minds and beliefs, maybe adjust some opinions and revise thoughts based on new information.
When Venus is retrograde, it's time to reorganize the contents of our heart ... and the means we use to support ourselves, both through connections to partners and allies and through the way we acquire and use material assets. These are all vital pieces of life's business ... and as with every living organism, they are constantly in motion.
Realigning Self-Promotion and Relationships
Given her strong interests in fun stuff like love and money, Venus is pretty comfortable in the warm-and-welcoming environment of self-interested Leo. Leo, for better or worse, views pretty much everything in terms of how it brings pleasure, profit or something else useful to Leo itself.
