Since October 5 when Venus turned retrograde we have been assessing our values. What we value and how we are valued have been in our sights. What have we learned about who is cold and rejects our gifts? Or are we spending too much time on something that others marginalize? Or are we doing too much and others are not doing their share? Or are others doing too much? Or are we doing too much for other’s approval? And then there is money. How has money (which is something that speaks of value) been working? Is it good? Is it wonky?
This Venus retrograde is in the sign of Scorpio, which is taxes and debt and sex. Perhaps we felt a strong urge to get rid of any debt. When it retrograded back into Libra on October 31 our relationships and finding balance got a little tricky. It could be important to ask our partner if we are on the same page in an area that has felt off.
Once it turns direct we could revisit issues that came up since September 2 (beginning of the shadow) but by the time we get to December 7 we will find a lot has softened and we are more in sync with our values.
