Does it seem like everyone has just gone bonkers lately? Mean, back-biting or just plain snotty? It’s not you, it’s them. But it’s not you either.
Those pesky planets are making dizzy circles amongst the stars again.
Venus, the planet of love and relationships, has been in retrograde. Yes, that-oh-so-sensuous, snuggle-on-the-sofa, planet of swoon has been giving relationships the cold shoulder. If you have been fighting with your sweetie, your bestie, or maybe just everyone you meet, take heart because Venus is forcing us to take stock of our interpersonal relationships.
But hold onto your socks, or at least your box of tissues, because just when it should get better it is about to get worse. Venus will stop being all pissy-pants and move direct on November 16th. Yay! Just wait, our other little friend who loves to create chaos, none other than Mercury, will go retrograde on the same day.
Mercury, the ruler of all things tech, communication, travel and legal will be giggling with glee as he turns his back on the sky and stays there until December 6th.
What. The. F*ck.
I guess there is a bright side to this. Just when you are about to press Send on the nasty, go-F*ck-yourself text, your phone seizes and dies. Or you are about to send your resignation letter to your boss, along with your list of the thousands of ways you hope the company dies, your computer goes into the blue screen of death taking all your files with it.
So while you are standing in line at the phone store, you’ll have plenty of time to re-think those messages.
You see, retrograde is the time to turn inward and re-think, reevaluate, review, remind and any other re-word that causes you to pause for a different purpose.
Maybe that relationship wasn’t so bad after all. You might be pushing yourself too hard and biting someone’s head off just because you are tired. Or maybe it really is time to call it quits, because you just can’t deal with their drinking problem.
Maybe you are taking on too much at your workplace, trying to make up for inadequacies in your team. It might be time to step up and tell them to handle their own responsibilities. Or maybe you need to polish your resume, because playing office politics that wreak havoc with your value system of integrity and correctness are causing you an overload of stress.
So while these planets are vying for dominion in the sky, hunker down in your nest and look within for answers. Seek help from Spirit for the best direction and action steps to take.
Or maybe just make a wish upon a star.
