"Mercury Retrograde" has certainly
become a buzzword - or buzz phrase - these days. The Venus
Retrograde cycle is lesser known, and it occurs less frequently than
Mercury Retrograde, but it is a significant time nevertheless.
What is Venus
Retrograde? Occasionally, Venus appears to be moving backwards in the sky.
"Appears" is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no
planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In
fact, they don't even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles
are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from
Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun at a
different speed than the other planets. Venus is Retrograde
approximately 40-43 days every 18 months.
As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are times when we
re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider
inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Financial
undertakings are not advised during this period as well.
When Venus is retrograde in the natal chart itself, the feeling nature is
deep. Socializing is taken seriously--rarely lightly. The individuals can be
somewhat shy in youth, as there can be an awkwardness felt concerning small talk
and social graces.
The Karmic Insight report has this to
say about Venus Retrograde in the natal chart: "You have had a prior lifetime or
lifetimes in which your love was unrequited or lost or somehow denied expression
and fulfillment due to circumstances, and this both intensifies and complicates
your personal affections in the present. You may feel there is "never enough"
which can lead to greediness for friends or lovers, or even for money or food.
On the other hand, you may withhold affection, be unable to attract true
affection, or withhold commitment in love due to the shame or hurt you had. A
new feeling toward love and relationship can evolve as you learn to trust
yourself and let intimacy into your life."

Venus Stations Retrograde and Direct - Transits to the
What house(s) in your natal chart is Venus transiting when
it is Stationing? Note the degree at which Venus turns Retrograde and find
where that degree is found, by house, in your natal chart, then read the
interpretation for Venus Stationary Retrograde below. Then note the degree at
which Venus then turns Direct and find that point in your natal chart (it's
likely to be in the same house or an adjacent one), and read the interpretation
for Venus Stationary Direct below. These interpretations (source:
Day Watch Report Package) indicate the areas of life affected by Venus's stations.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 1st House
You are moving into a period when you may spend some time rethinking what you
want to get
out of the way you present yourself. As you see indicators that you are not
personal image, you have the opportunity to prune, trim, reshape, or even
redesign the way
you appear both physically and personality-wise. There could be a new you in the
just a more refined and efficient version of what went before. Under any
yourself a second look so you can decide if you appear to be living up to your
potential. Appearances can be everything, and keeping them up can be a personal
of your inner value.
Venus Stationary Direct in 1st House
Over the past few weeks, you may have developed a bit clearer vision of how you
to present yourself and how you want to benefit from the way people see you. As
your image, you will also be impacting your ability to earn and benefit from the
are viewed and judged by others (for the better). What you rearrange on the
outside is just a
reflection of what's going on inside, however, and the more consistent one is
with the other,
the easier you will be able get what you want, when you want it.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 2nd House
You are entering a period when you may realize that you are not getting enough
of what you
want from your physical and financial resources. At least, you may feel that
way, even if it's
not entirely true, so you should take some time to sort out actually overlooked
from simple discontent. What do you really want, and does what you possess
to deliver it? It may be partially that someone (or something) is putting up
resistance, or you may just be up for a change of attitude. Separating what you
want from who you are and want to become may be the most important issue
Venus Stationary Direct in 2nd House
Sorting out your resources and prioritizing what you have in hand may have
required some shifting over the past few weeks, but you'll find that plans can
begin to firm up as you decide what you want to heat up and what should be put
on the back burner. Possibilities that pay off short-term should be optimized
first, but do not entirely round file potential moneymakers that take longer to
mature. Knowing what you really want and who you want to deal with is the
determinant -- indecision leads to undoing, so when you step forward, step with
confidence and commitment. Indicate and you will vindicate.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 3rd House
For a period you may find yourself wondering if the people you're involved with
on an everyday basis are worth all the trouble, and you may consider doing a
little pruning of timewasters and social situations that give less satisfaction
than they promise. In fact, you may discover that less is more in terms of your
social appetite and a breath of peaceful fresh air beats the excitement of a
crowded venue. The issue is an internal one, and giving up at this point may
actually result in getting more down the line as you resolve your priorities. In
fact, in the end, you may find you save money in the process....
Venus Stationary Direct in 3rd House
You may have found some difficulty lately getting what you want across to
others, making your desires and wishes known in ways that are not misunderstood.
A period of clarification is now underway, during which you can clear things up
and get what you need from the immediate surroundings without having to repeat
yourself so much. Partially, that's due to general happenstance, but equally
important is putting your own thoughts in order and being sure of what you want,
so you can ask for it clearly and effectively. When you are coming from a solid
place inside, your follow-through will take care of itself.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 4th House
During this period, what you want to hold on to and what you want to let go can
be a recurrent issue. Not so much in the outer world, but rather the inner. The
set of circumstances that really makes you feel at home and well supported
emotionally and spiritually ask to be defined or, rather, redefined. Are you
where you would like to be? Are your values abiding or shifting? What is your
personal bottom line? As you address these questions, you may find yourself
redefined and more secure from within and therefore better able to go after
goals on the outside, especially in you interaction with others.
Venus Stationary Direct in 4th House
Core values may have been at issue recently, with the need to take a second look
at what is
really meaningful to you and what is passing fancy. Such changes are now likely
and give you a better sense of personal objectives and what your inner bottom
should be. Dispense with that which does not feed the soul but only gives
amusement. Quality, not quantity, should be the watchword -- follow your heart,
not just your
appetite, and you'll find that you will be well-filled. And don't forget that
when you give, you get,
so an open and generous hand now means instant good karma.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 5th House
This may be a period in which you choose to refocus your creative impulse
and redefine what truly satisfies, as opposed to what merely amuses. The
appetite for joy can immerse you in flowing river, when you discover you only
had your toes in the water before. When the muse ceases to inspire, be ready to
try for another, either personally or artistically, so you begin to feel
properly plugged in again. Who you want to play with and what you want to play
at are particular reflections of who you are and who you want to be -- as you
resolve one, the other comes into plainer view and the way is clear.
Venus Stationary Direct in 5th House
Stirred and circling creative urges start to take more concrete shape now, and
it's time to
select those projects that have real sex appeal and drop the humdrum.
begin to show signs of harmony, and spontaneity becomes its own reward. The
choosing is the sureness of your choice, and confidence in your decisions will
now begin to
pick up the pace. This actually impacts on your wellness, and the better you
feel, the better
you are -- and the more you will accomplish as a result. Take a deep breath of
you'll find it satisfies.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 6th House
The everyday care of the smaller necessities in life are highlighted during this
you may feel you are not getting your daily due and proper attention -- but then
discover it is because you haven't really asked for what you truly want.
Learning new and
more satisfying ways to address your personal habits and those of others will
you take a closer look. This can mean taking better care of yourself, eating
what truly satisfies,
and turning the necessities of the daily grind into the opportunities of
accomplishment. Life is one thing at a time, each well done.
Venus Stationary Direct in 6th House
Knowing what you want to get out of your daily routine is essential to making it
work for you
and not you work for it. That may have been something of an issue of late, but
up is the order of the day now, so go ahead and prioritize. Setting clear goals
details of achieving them that much easier, so the more specific you can be, the
clearing your decks, you open up your path, so don't be afraid to dispense with
and overstated tasks. By sticking to just what is necessary, you lighten your
responsibilities and enable partnering to expand your horizons.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 7th House
At this kind of period, the usual joys of partnership may appear to have become
tarnished, so it's probably time to get out the polishing cloth. In some ways
you may be asking
not for more than what you want, but what you don't want at all, and that cannot
satisfy. If you depend on habit, relations cloy, for it is only what you know
you want right now that ultimately fits the bill. So be willing to spend some
time winnowing your relationships, keeping what really works and letting the
rest pass. When clearly stated desires are again being addressed from both
sides, that's when life begins again.
Venus Stationary Direct in 7th House
If you're not sure of what you want out of someone, it can be hard to get it, an
give-and-take lately may have become more like push-and-pull. First, refigure
out what it is
you want to ask of a partner, then put it out clearly so there are no mistakes.
That means as
much knowing what you aren't asking for as what you are. Imagined or illusory
can make a muddle of things, but as you focus on your real desires, the small
stuff starts to
fade into the background, allowing real dialogue to begin. When you know what to
others become the resources you would like them to be.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 8th House
During this period, you may feel a sense that there is something you forgot,
something missing that used to make you happy and has somehow been left behind.
That often happens when you move on to the latest promises and developments and
inadvertently leave the reasons we used to have fun in cold storage. It may be
time to trade some of the new in for the old, to revisit what worked before as
well as what might be the wave of the future. There are some things money can't
buy (or, you forgot you already bought it), so don't spend unnecessarily when
you can fall in love again with what you already have.
Venus Stationary Direct in 8th House
Ask and you shall receive, but you've got to know what to ask for and who to
ask, both of which may have been the subject of some confusion of late. After
feeling around for the answers, resolution now becomes more accessible and the
resources available for you to draw upon become a bit more clear. The key may be
to focus on one thing at a time and not to scatter your shots and waste your
powder. Pick a target and go after it until it yields up what you want. Besiege
the objects of your desire until they surrender to your resolve. A
broadening of your vision will result from drawing intensely on your
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 9th House
Big plans and ideal notions may seem to satisfy less during this period, or may
affordable. Satisfying a large appetite can tire you more than trimming back and
what truly satisfies. You may find that what you really want and believe in is
down by what you used to care about but which no longer carries its weight. If
you want it, go
for it, but if not, let it go without regret. Enthusiasm requires focus, and
this is a good time to
regain yours. When you think you're being denied, it may be that you're actually
to tune up those taste buds in every sense of the phrase.
Venus Stationary Direct in 9th House
Portraying your overarching vision to others may have been hampered of late by
about just what that vision is. Once you have reconsidered where you'd really
like to go, it's
time to pick up speed and cut a broad swathe through life. You can pick up
cutting away distractions and making a firm thrust in the direction of your
what you want involves knowing what you don't, but you needn't be too specific
to begin with.
You can iron out the details later, now is the time to point and go. Decide
which way you
future lies, then release the brakes.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 10th House
What you would like others to think about you can become a focus in this period.
What is your reputation worth -- and, in fact, what is your reputation, anyway?
The surest way to attain success is to define it well to begin with -- you can't
get what you want if you don't know what it is. You may discover that what you
are worried about not attaining is actually not what you want to attain in the
first place, clearing the decks for real personal success. In the end, willingly
redefining goals and clarifying expectations can make this a time that will both
bring forth fruit and plant the seeds for another crop.
Venus Stationary Direct in 10th House
Establishing yourself in others' eyes means making decisions about what it is
you want said
about you. If you're mixed up about that, then that will be your image. So after
a recent period
of uncertainty and changing choices, now is the time to start making your
letting them be known abroad. Rewrite your personal résumé -- whether for
just life itself -- to reflect not only who you are and what you have done, but
going and what you want out of life. Put the words into others' mouths before
they do it for
themselves, and you'll find yourself self-tailored for success.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 11th House
Taking things (and people) for granted can be an easy slip-up during this
Longstanding friends and situations should not be allowed to become simply a
rather reinvigorated, separating the wheat from the chaff. That also means not
yourself to become backstage to others who may have forgotten your importance,
so it may
be a good time to sort things out. Problems most likely come from individuals
included) thinking more about personal ends than personal friends. It's time to
again and play it like you mean it -- a sure recipe for heart and hand alike.
Venus Stationary Direct in 11th House
Knowing who your friends are is essential to that feeling of warmth and support
that keep the
life fires stoked. There may have been some shifting lately in this respect --
not so much from
without, but from within. Who do you want to be really close, and who just a
acquaintance? Sorting out who's company and who's a crowd can be well-tended to
based on coming to grip with your real inner feelings. Sort out the emotional
wheat from the
chaff, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Don't take for granted
options you may
want to return to later, but treat them with respect.
Venus Stationary Retrograde in 12th House
At this period, it may be somewhat difficult to put a finger on exactly
what/whom it is you want to get your hands on. The urgency of desire does not
yield enough specifics, leaving you wondering what's going on. Final decisions
are best not made, especially ones about how you feel, as there may be good
things for you assembling in the wings that you don't know about and which you
don't want to cut yourself off from. Time is not of the essence, even if it
seems like it, and some retrospection on who and what has served you well in the
past will serve you well now. Feel yourself out before you tie yourself up.
Venus Stationary Direct in 12th House
A period of being rather afloat in your desires is beginning to pass. You can't
always get what
you want -- but you generally have to know what you want in order to give it
your best shot.
Right now, however, you may find that the best decision is no decision at all.
alone to grow or to be handled by circumstance may be preferable to what might
uneducated guesses. It may be better to commune with yourself for a while and
It can be better to be motionless and still, so you can feel the wind changing,
than to row in
the wrong direction.
Venus Retrograde Transiting in Conjunction to Natal Planets
During any given Venus Retrograde period, Venus may transit conjunct a
natal planet or point (or more than one sensitive point in your chart). The
interpretations below (source: Day Watch software) show what happens when
Venus transits conjunct a natal planet or point while in Retrograde motion,
and then returns to "revisit" the conjunction after turning Direct.
Venus Conjunct Sun (Retrograde)
Venus making a turnaround on your Sun introduces you to a few weeks of
reevaluation about just how you want your personal sun to shine and upon whom.
You may find you have been giving more than you've been getting -- or should
get, in some areas -- this would be a good time to pull back a little and have a
look. Perhaps you should wait until results are in before going that extra mile
in hopes of greater reward. Don't give it away free unless you know it's from
your heart, and then don't ask for payback. If you can't afford it, don't do it,
wait until you can.
Venus Conjunct Sun (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus returning to forward motion on your Sun favors flashing some raw
personality and being totally up front about what you want. Where there may have
been confusion and uncertainty before about your aims, set your sights on your
chosen desire and go for the gold. Don't be afraid to make the first move and
swing your lasso as you close in on your quarry -- before you know it, you'll
have your heart's desire trussed and safely inside your corral. The time for
riding herd and waiting is over -- cut and brand your choice grade A, then sit
back and enjoy it.
Venus Conjunct Moon (Retrograde)
Venus on pause as it touches your Moon may give you pause to reconsider how much
your desires draw you into relationships, and how you can get more out of it. An
open hand means an open heart, but glad handers can put a crimp in the joy of
giving and being close. Take a look at who has the privilege of enjoying your
company and make sure it's a two-way stretch. It's a period for emotional
insight and selection, to separate true joy from simple fun, a time to learn to
treasure what you really want and dispense with what gets in the way. Turn to
the true, savor the sweet, know how to truly identify both.
Venus Conjunct Moon (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus making its turn on your Moon adds breadth to the palette of your emotions
and you can open up a range of subtle pleasures that might have been eluding you
before. Feel free to respond just as you feel and don't hold back waiting for
something better to come along. Loosen ties of inhibition and release inner
tensions that might have held you back from admitting what it is you really
want. You can't get what you don't admit to, so honesty is the best policy and
will also have the effect of getting you out of situations you'd just as soon
Venus Conjunct Mercury (Retrograde)
Venus backing off your Mercury can mean a change of heart, a change of mind, and
change of goals over the next few weeks. What had strong appeal before may shift
again, so don't tie yourself down to a deal or a price -- personally or
financially -- until you've
got all the information. Redesigning for beauty and pleasure should be the order
of the day,
and you've got time to try the options, so taste whatever and whomever you can
got just the right mix. Don't feel pressured to make a decision, but savor the
make the most of them.
Venus Conjunct Mercury (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus getting back into gear on your Mercury can put matters of taste and choice
foreground and clear out the cobwebs of your mind where your discerning eye
to make life more beautiful simply by rearranging things to suit your real needs
can make you
realize that simple acquisition is not always the pillar of pleasure it
sometimes seems. A good
word, a pleasing thought, and a thoughtful deed all reflect the beauty that is
already within you and without you. The ability to put away what cloys and
replace it with the fresh flowers of
your invention dominates your canvas.
Venus Conjunct Venus (Retrograde)
Venus making a turnaround on your natal Venus is a rare event and a unique time
some careful reconsiderations about what it is you really want out of life and
what you'd like to
do with it. All that glitters is not gold, and the next few weeks can provide
you with special
insight to separate the costume jewelry of life from the carats that really
opportunity is here for an emotional housecleaning followed by a new start that
together what you really value and establish better ways to go about getting it.
then sparkle plenty.
Venus Conjunct Venus (Direct After Retrograde)
This second glance of Venus to your own natal Venus marks the year's renewal of
and inner desires and paints a pattern of the year to come concerning what/who
want and what you can reasonably get. It's a time for flowering reflection on
how to reconcile
wishes and requirements in a way that will make both beautiful blossoms and a
Part of that is revitalization of your own beauty and desirability -- like
attracts like, and the
better you look the better you'll get, both inside and out. Once you know you
going, you're halfway there.
Venus Conjunct Mars (Retrograde)
Venus making a temporary pullback on your Mars will provide you with a period of
weeks to reconsider just what you want to focus your energies on. What really
turns on your
enthusiasm enough to put out for it? And, just as important, what no longer
these kinds of decisions now will pay off in a leaner, more motivated you down
the road -- and
you might as well do it with a will, as you'll probably have to, anyway. You'll
evermore able to find that crossroad of opportunity and desire that both boots
metabolism and fans the flames of your heart.
Venus Conjunct Mars (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus doing its spin on your Mars can provide the perfect opportunity to take
grasp what had previously been out of reach. Where you might have been
changes of desire and uncertainty of choice, you can now launch yourself into
the chase and
bring down your quarry with glee. Don't look only to your ends, but to your
means, for there's
a revived joy in the chase that makes each moment rejuvenating and energizes
achieve instant success or not. The satisfaction comes in playing the game and
you're fully up to it.
Venus Conjunct Jupiter (Retrograde)
As Venus stops in her tracks on your Jupiter, this is the perfect time to step
back and take a
closer look at your appetites and whether they satisfy the way they should. Does
you less? Are you barking up the wrong tree part of the time, when you could be
bang for your bucks? Are you biting off more than you can chew? All these
more like them are likely to come up, giving you the opportunity to trim the fat
discovering new ways to light your fire. Feel free to think big, just don't feel
pressured to go for
more than you want, or for what you no longer want at all.
Venus Conjunct Jupiter (Direct After Retrograde)
After a period of some uncertainty of realistic goals and directions, Venus
turning forward on
your Jupiter means forward can be the name of the game for a while. Once you
out what it is you didn't really want, it's time to take a really big bite out
of what you do. A large
appetite is favored and you won't be greedy to take as much as you want, as long
don't waste it. Life can be feast or famine, but right now table up to the feast
and enjoy the
fruits of your imagination, the creative design and insight that got you here in
the first place.
Venus Conjunct Saturn (Retrograde)
As Venus takes a backward jump right on your Saturn, you may have a few weeks to
consider what barriers you have adopted, perhaps without realizing it, and what
you have taken to heart that may not be keepers. It is one thing to accept a
cannot change, but quite another to choose between options. The same goes for
you lean on. Do not trade freedom for what you would like to have in your pocket
if it's not
necessary to do so. For the next several weeks you have the window of
opportunity to sort all
this out, so don't miss the chance!
Venus Conjunct Saturn (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus hiking back on your Saturn can allow you to tap resources you didn't know
and particularly learn to make use of and take joy from opportunities you might
overlooked or thought insufficient to be of real use. The joy of efficiency, a
tightly run ship,
and the elegance of simple form regain appeal as a result of the disappointments
waste and surfeit. It's not just what you have, it's how you use it that
engenders beauty and
personal satisfaction. Less may not always be more, but less to tie you down and
returns the spring to the elastic step and strength to the resilient frame.
Venus Conjunct Uranus (Retrograde)
As Venus suddenly backs off from your natal Uranus, you have the chance to
rethink how far out you want to go with your taste, your desires, and your
relationships. Now is the time to sort out the original directions that will
come to satisfy you from the quirks of taste that will pass and perhaps burden
you with residue. The difference between a unique approach and a lapse in taste
can become especially clear, and you should spend some time figuring out which
is which before proceeding onward. Remember, you'll look back with either pride
or embarrassment, so choose wisely.
Venus Conjunct Uranus (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus tripping again forward over your Uranus can bring new and unusual fruits
to your garden of delights, if you're ready to take a chance and stray off the
beaten path. Give in to sudden urges, explore new feelings, or dive into a new
look that's more cutting edge and self-inventing. Meat and potatoes have come to
be more than a bore of late, and exotic pleasures are only a wish fulfillment
away -- make the wish, fill up. Involve all the senses, broaden your palette,
bring beauty to the fringe, and don't recoil from surprise but embrace it. It's
all yours to take, if you ask and then listen.
Venus Conjunct Neptune (Retrograde)
Venus turning her face on your Neptune for a brief moment right now can give you
the chance to reevaluate visions that might not be pulling their weight in terms
of results and could use a little adjustment. Fantasy and desire can be a mix
that departs from real possibilities, and it's good to stand back and get a grip
on what can and cannot be before you sacrifice real futures for pipe dreams.
Wanting can lead to getting, but there's no guarantee, so select the desires
with the most weight and drop the ones that only weight you down. Dreams come
true when you attend them well, now's the time to catch up.
Venus Conjunct Neptune (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus taking off from your Neptune is the stuff dreams are made of, and what may
have been iffy or poorly conceived quite recently now appears to have substance
and real possibilities. This may particularly apply to shared visions and mutual
ideals that require participation and a joint effort to achieve mutual goals.
Too much glare can spoil the picture, so keep the lights low and let the
imagination roam without tripping each other up on the details. You're not
looking to reproduce the exact same dream, only to dream together. The essence
of fantasy is to rise above reality, not to drown in it.
Venus Conjunct Pluto (Retrograde)
Who controls what you want? Do you? Sometimes it's hard to say, especially when
you feel in competition with others for what you might be choosing on your own.
Venus backing off your Pluto (it's happening to all your age mates) should make
you realize that there's no real competition for what you really want, although
keeping up with the neighbors could pull the wool over your eyes. When you back
off initial confrontations, you may find that there's no real issue and, in
fact, only common ground. Take the time to spell it out so everyone feels
comfortable and on the same page.
Venus Conjunct Pluto (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus kicking off from your Pluto pushes must-have issues to the fore and you
may find yourself at loggerheads with others who want what you want and may not
want to share. Remember only that compulsive needs fulfilled seldom satisfy for
long, so if you're feeling driven, keep one foot on the brakes. Fighting for
fleeting fantasy, however urgent, is probably not worth the effort, and the most
powerful will is the one that can keep still, so don't feel you have to prove
yourself. Let others drain themselves in the fray, while you shoot for bigger
game and longer-term satisfaction.
Conjunct Ascendant (Retrograde)
Just as you were looking so good -- or thought you were -- Venus backs off your
and you find there's some real room for touchups. Actually, you realized that
shooting for something you didn't really want to begin with, so resize your
image and try again.
You will probably find over the next few weeks that maintenance you thought was
optional and you only need to do enough to live up to your own internal positive
Relearn how to love yourself and what you see in the mirror, and the world will
can only project what you feel, and let the rest follow.
Venus Conjunct Ascendant (Direct After Retrograde)
After a time of some uncertainty and perhaps self-doubt, Venus pushing into
right on your Ascendant makes you look and feel particularly desirable right
now. Touch up
changes have made your image sparkle and now is the time to cash in on your
get what you want by personal appearance and not by proxy, so show up if you
impress and collect. Act like you deserve it all, and you'll get it without
argument -- but do it
with grace so the less fortunate don't hold it against you. Don't act full of
yourself, just be full
of yourself -- you're worth it.
Venus Conjunct Midheaven (Retrograde)
If you thought you had your rep sewed up, break out the sewing machine. Venus in
a fallback on your MC means there are some frayed edges in what you'd like the
world to know about you that had best be patched up. It's not so much repair as
reformation, as maybe you weren't going for what you really wanted to begin with
and you need to reshape your reputation in the image of your newly formed
desires. Tune into the pipeline where stories about you are concerned and edit
the storytellers. If you know what you want said, you can write the book --
now's the time to spend the time.
Venus Conjunct Midheaven (Direct After Retrograde)
Venus shoving off into its new path right on your Midheaven is a bounteous gift
to your reputation and career efforts, and the good things you hoped would be
said about you actually start to circulate. However, don't waste time basking in
the limelight, but get in there and make hay while this sun shines -- as this,
too, will pass. Now is the time to trade on your elevated status -- the chance
to rise up into the higher atmosphere in the coming months. Listen carefully to
others, however, to be sure that you are indeed fulfilling their expectations.
