As Venus descends into the darkness, you too may find yourself in a place of withdrawal and contemplation. Out of all the planetary retrogrades, Venus is often the most internal and problematic, especially in the domain of relationships and authentic wants. While retrograde, Venus can bring a deep awareness about how much you are trading off your own happiness for the sake of someone else’s.
When it comes to swimming, whether you’re the type of person who likes to elegantly dive in, tip toe and feel your way through the water or just bomb dive in, most people will attest the feeling of being refreshed, re-invigorated and renewed. It’s almost like you’re metaphorically washing something away- your thoughts, your fears, your problems, or maybe you simply like that fresh feeling on your skin.
After the brilliant meeting of the Moon and Jupiter over the weekend, this week is relatively quite aspect wise. Four planets still in retrograde, coupled with Jupiter stuck at 13 degrees for the rest of May, this is the last week to enjoy a slow and steady pace as the planetary party begins to shift into the sign of Gemini.
