Three things are happening at the same time: the past, the future, and the now. Venus on a backtrack of Libra and Uranus rekindling Aries insist we revisit and reassess before we sign off and move on. Although both are on a replay, both also prompt a new takeaway. Don’t view the past as a block or a deterrent; let it be your springboard instead.
Sometimes things have to swing to an extreme so that we can get a better visual on it. Venus retrograde shows us what isn’t in harmony, what isn’t in balance, and what is competing rather than complementing the win/win. Venus retrograde is a look-andlisten-better transit. When things get askew, it is often because of projected expectations, of overriding the information (what we see, what we hear, what we feel) because we are overly attached to the projection rather than the reality, to some ultimate goal or objective.
Venus retrograde holds a more obvious quality regarding fate at the crossroads. Uranus retrograde is on the same activation track, but its intended target is chiefly directed to the social and political spheres.
Tuesday is a big day for U.S. voters, and it is also a big transition day in the stars. Uranus retrograde backs into Aries and the karmic axis (north and south nodes of the moon) begins its next 18-month transit through Cancer/capricorn. This sign axis features everything to do with home, family, security, consequences of the past, authority’s rule, and getting it under better control. Monday’s sun/neptune trine and Wednesday’s new moon in Scorpio infuse the now with significant creative potential.
March 20–April 19
Venus in Libra puts more spin on your social life and on relationship matters. A next phase or stage is in the works regarding a key relationship (perhaps several). A partnership or contract holds good prospects. Starting Tuesday, Uranus on a backtrack of Aries can thrust you into it fast. It’s fate on a flint strike, especially so if you are born April 18/19.
April 20–May 20
Uranus backs out of Taurus on Tuesday, but it isn’t disappearing. Along with Venus on a revisit to Libra, these transits aim to help you cut to the chase regarding upgrades and improvements. Venus can help you to find a better job or enlist more cooperation, better advice, or more help. It can also stir up dependency issues. It is time to address the imbalances.
May 21–June 21 Comparatively speaking, Venus retrograde in Libra can be easier or smoother going than Venus in Scorpio. Someone or something can reclaim your heart or take you on another go-around. What’s good is good; what isn’t calls for you to reexamine and to adjust your expectations. It’s an appropriate transit for renegotiating a contract, actual or karmic. Tuesday/wednesday are good for a power play.
June 21–July 22
Venus retrograde in Libra spotlights family, home, and reconciling with the past. You may feel that no matter how much you do, you give, or you pay that it never seems to be enough. Do your best; cherish what you have; don’t buy into resentment or regret. Starting Tuesday, Uranus into Aries puts a new spin on it. You are poised for a breakthrough.
July 22–August 22
A rethink is in order. A call back, another conversation, meet-up,
NOVEMBER 1 TO 7, 2018
or look-see can be too. If it did the trick previously, it can again. Venus retrograde in Libra can boost your social activity, rekindle the heart, revive a plan or a good idea, or put you back in the game in some other way. Tuesday, emotions are on a quick trigger.
August 22–September 22 The Virgo moon keeps you going strong through Saturday. Venus on a backtrack of Libra powers up your inner voice. You’ll now gain better feel for what or who is worth taking on. Don’t override your heart or your mind; listen up instead. Starting Tuesday, Uranus in Aries can fire you up and/or provide more incentive. Tough love is where it is at.
September 22–October 23 You will feel the fullest impact of Venus retrograde in Libra if you are born October 18 to 23, but, of course, we are all feeling it. While each day is informing, Venus gives you extra time to sort yourself out, to observe and to feel your way along. Uranus on a revisit of Aries triggers something more, something fresh, something fated.
October 23–November 21 Venus has just left Scorpio for Libra, but she’ll be back in December. In the meantime, the transit is good for taking time out to heal/replenish heart, body, and soul. Eat healthy; do right by yourself this weekend. Through Monday, give your undivided attention to studies, a creative project, or a romantic interlude. Gift yourself, too. Tuesday/wednesday, expect to hit the ground running.
November 21–December 21 Mercury, freshly into Sagittarius, gives you/it wings. Venus on a revisit of Libra and Uranus on a revisit of Aries (as of next Tuesday) are also revitalizing. While the aim is to get plugged back in and/or to get it off the ground again, it is not about the same old but about taking it in a whole new direction. Tuesday/wednesday sets the stage/tone.
December 21–January 19 Contracts, actual and karmic, are up for review. Professionally and personally, Venus retrograde takes you through an important reevaluation and/or rebuild-it process. Uranus on a backtrack of Aries adds something new or extra to the mix. A key someone plays a feature role in both hindsight reflection and how it shapes up next.
January 20–February 18 Mars in Aquarius keeps you going strong through the middle of the month. Despite Venus and Uranus taking you on a backtrack, Mars keeps you breaking new ground. Through Monday, the going is good. Use the next couple of weeks to get yourself ahead before Mercury turns retrograde. Tuesday/wednesday begins a next phase. Watch for sudden clarity or news.
February 18–March 20 Spending more, earning more: Venus on a backtrack of Libra keeps money on your mind. Sex and relationship matters are top attention getters too. With Mercury in Sagittarius on the move, you should see gains where it adds up the most. Now through the middle of next week, potentials are on the rise. Tuesday/wednesday keeps you/it going strong.
