Venus Stations Retrograde

“A self is not something static, tied up in a parcel, finished and complete. A self is always becoming. Being means becoming. But when we run so fast, it is only when we seem to stop- as sitting on a rock at the brook- that we are aware of our own isness, of being.” Madeleine Engel

“Tell me everything you love.” The English Patient

Venus is slowing down in the sky now preparing for her retrograde station on October 5 at  10 degrees of Scorpio. Venus will dip back into late Libra on Halloween and station direct in mid- November.

This time period provides good timing to reflect on and reconsider what creates a sense of joy, contentment and connectedness in your life. It’s a good time to review how you relate to others and what you value in relationship and partnership.

It’s a good time to look at patterns of behavior created and perpetuated in relationship over time and to think about what draws you feeling- wise into friendship and partnership. What are the lines of commonality and connection? These things are bound to change over time but especially in our time when the trajectory of personal evolution is on the fast track.

It also bodes well to consider issues of self respect and self esteem under this influence and how your relationships impact on that area of your life. The sign of Scorpio can get to the bottom of things with an uncanny perception.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A fellowship supper reunites old comrades.”
