Tolerance, Love Talk & Lifejackets

Primarily Venus is Aphrodite, goddess of love. While Venus retrogrades through Gemini romance and relationship concerns of all kinds will remain high on the sensitivity list, but they become even more important when Venus is involved in exact aspects to the other planets. This week then is a milestone for many as Venus makes that second square to Neptune and also meets up with Mercury.

Turning Points, Head versus Heart & Learning Curves

So, pay close attention to what is unfolding for you this week. In Venusian terms the key issues are love, sex, desire, pleasures and money. Retrogrades don’t automatically signal that everything will unravel, but there may be some threads that will. In relationships check your assumptions, whether you’ve been with someone a long time or getting to know someone new. Be open to different ways of doing things and, as Wayne Dyer says, try not to focus on what is missing in the other person. In other words, don’t fixate on what they don’t do or say as this sets up a downward spiral of doubt, negativity or dissatisfaction.
