Venus Retrograde: Awakening and Healing of your heart

By 18 maart 2017mei 12th, 2017relationships

Astrologically speaking we turned the page, finally! Welcome to a new chapter of the book of life. The eclips season is behind us. The spring equinox is nearly there and Venus went retrograde. When Venus moves retrograde it seems to move backwards, as seen from the earth. The planet of love, harmony, money and feminine power is taking us back to a passageway to our abilities to love, to hold the space for another, to seek balance in our love lives, and for women to reflect on their money- and man stories.

During this period of Venus retrograde we are challenged to take a closer look at our shadows. In Jungian psychology, the shadow refers to an unconscious aspect of your personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself.

Venus Retrogrades are often periods of awakening and healing of your heart.

Venus alignes our heart and teaches us how to love. Venus helps you in removing blockages and barriers from around the heart so we may experience the bliss of unconditional, divine love

In each and every one of us, there is this Universal wisdom, a knowing. It is this wisdom that allows our body to heal itself when we are ill, that allows our skin to generate new cells when we cut ourselves. That does our heart beat. It is with the planet Venus that we are able to connect through our heart chakra with our body. The more we are able to connect with our body the deeper our relationship with ourselves will be.

Aries is about new beginnings, Pisces is about endings. So this very specific Venus retrograde is an invitation to have a closer look at what in your life is ready to end and what new feeling, experience can you make room for? New beginnings and endings have been a huge topic, in general, for a couple of years now. But with this Venus retrograde it’s an invitation to look at this through the eyes of your heart, instead of your mind.

Let go of the pain, the dissapointments of past lovers and relationships and open yourself up to a deeper love.

If you have feeling confused in a particular relationship, this Venus retrograde can give you some clarity. But be sure that you don’t make decisions to fast. Take some time to check in with your heart and allow the Universal wisdom to flow through you.

Venus makes this beautiful flower pattern over 8 years, as seen from the earth. 

Your Soul work this period:

  1. Make connection with your heart and your body. To help you, think of bringing green and pink flowers in your home with soft and gently leaves. They remind you (unconsciously) to tap into the energy of your heart.
  1. Make a conscious choice to left the pain, the disappointment and the fear of past relationships behind to tap into a deeper universal love. Your past is not as important as your future.
  1. Connect with people and circumstances in your life from a place within, from your heart.
