It arrived here in California at 3:29 am. With Venus in retrograde until April 15 it's the start of the spring season is truly a time for renewal.
Are you where you want to be?
What things can you do to change your situation?
Not only is Venus in retrograde, she's in retrograde in Aries. This fiery sign turns Venus into a warrior goddess. This especially intensifies on Saturday the 25th.
Be a warrior for yourself. Be a warrior for love.
By the way, did you happen to notice there was a lot more green on St. Patrick's Day than just shamrocks and the beer?
Eris, the goddess of discord and envy, joined with Uranus, who also enjoys chaos. Did Friday just start to make sense? Awesome.
Examine what makes you envious. What is it precisely about this person or situation that makes you sharp tongued and judgemental? That's the gem right there. Use the uncomfortable feelings to stoke the fire and direct you to create the things in your life you really want.
Finally, with the male warrior Mars in Taurus you may feel like a knight sent on a quest who keeps getting distracted by springtime things. Your horse wants to smell flowers, you run into some bees, and you can't help but go and soak in those healing hotsprings you found by accident. Good!
With the fire of Venus deciding what to scorch and give fire power to, and the envy of Eris pointing you in the direction of your desires, you need time to wander in Taurus' mystical garden. One side of you is plotting escape and liberation. The other side of you is remembering to find the joy right where you are, so when you're ready to launch it will done with ease. The universe helps those who are having fun while they wait.
P.S. For all the lovelies in the southern hemisphere, fret not, this applies to you too. Now that summer has ended, what are you retooling as you enter fall? What can withstand the heat of this retrograde? It's like the first month of school where you get a feel for everything, and you can take off running once you know what you want, and the best part is you've secretly been on top of your homework. It will feel really good in four weeks.
