Another Venus retrograde is now upon us! Venus will station retrograde at 24° Gemini on May 15, exactly trine retrograde Saturn in Libra for better or worse.
Speaking of “for better or worse” those planning late May-June weddings better brace themselves for plenty of changes in wedding plans! Though it is unlikely weddings will be called off, there will be more changes to all those important details like the flowers, cake, music and the bridesmaid’s dresses. Note to parents of the bride – if you don’t want to go broke, practice saying “no” in a firm, no nonsense tone.
Often being retrograde brings out Venus’s less pleasant nature. Venus in Gemini is typically lots of fun to be around. She is witty, inventive and generally a bright, upbeat companion. However, if she is unhappy she can be fickle, snippy and prone to passing on nasty gossip. Anything to prevent boredom is her motto.
As a Venus ruled Libra, I am always wary when the lovely one starts into one of her retrograde periods. My fingers are crossed this one won’t be too difficult because it does start with a helpful trine from Saturn in Libra and ends of June 27 with a wide conjunction to Jupiter in Gemini. Can’t be too bad, can it???
