Venus Retrograde in Scorpio October 2018

Open Your Heart
October 05 2018 until Nov 16 2018

Every 18 months, Venus—the planet that rules love, harmony and compassion, reverses into retrograde motion. On a positive note, Venus retrograde could bring a refreshing pause to the dramatic scripts of our love stories, helping us step back and regain perspective. Are we truly writing ourselves into suitable romantic roles? And if not, what can we do to recast or change a less-than-stimulating plot line?

During Venus in retrograde your love life enters a fated period. Giving and receiving love and affection becomes more difficult. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. As Venus also rules money, it’s traditionally thought that Venus retrograde is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items. 

Our heart is precious. We guard it fiercely, we wear it on our sleeve, we give it away, and sometimes it gets broken. The heart is a delicate thing, and yet this Venus retrograde is here to challenge how we deal with the lessons of the heart.

No matter where you are on the spectrum, this Venus retrograde is going to be challenging you to assess how open or blocked your heart is. This Venus retrograde is going to be asking you to think about your connection with others and to assess whether you are giving too much or too little.

While Venus moves through Scorpio, we are going to be encouraged to really transform. This is a time where we are going to have to work on making changes in order to continue. This is a time where our hearts are ready for an upgrade and shift in how they have been operating.

Venus retrograde in transit is a time of introspection and reassessment. You may be interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure. Destiny encounters are possible and you may actually come into contact with your soul mate. If so, you should experience a feeling of inevitability or familiarity. However, it is better to wait until Venus turns direct to make your move.

Opening your heart is never easy, and requires a lot of trust in yourself and in others, but it is necessary to put yourself out there if you want to make and build connections.
