VENUS Retrograde 2018:Banner:05 LEO.jpeg

Hello LEO!

  • Here we are now, in the grand finale of 2018’s Retrograde season: VENUS turns retrograde from October 5 to November 16! With her usual tumble to to retrograde land, which happens only every 18 months, everything Venusian is on the centerstage! Expect challenges, frustrations, excitement, and opportunities for long-term growth especially when it comes to LOVE, MONEY and BEAUTY.

    Bago ang specifics, let’s start with the general reminders for all:

    • Don’t schedule any kind of cosmetic procedure. Malaki ang chance na hindi ka maging happy, at pagsisisihan ito. INSTEAD: Use this period to really research, asses and revisit your plans, para sure na pulido talaga, and that you have everything in order. Wait until December 18, when Venus is out of shadow, before making any final decision.

    • Don’t get married or get engaged. ‘Wag din mag start ng bagong relationship, during this period. Saka nalang when Venus, the planet of LOVE, is strong and moving direct. INSTEAD: again, wait until December 18 onwards to commit to anything, para sure na clear, smooth and lucky ang energy for any kind of relationship.

    • Don’t make any drastic relationship decisions (Personal or business). Hindi dependable and emotions natin ngayon, and what we think we want when Venus is in Retrograde tend to change kapag direct na. INSTEAD: Put decisions off until the retrograde is over. ‘Wag makipag hiwalay, or maglayas, or magsabalutan, kasi malamang, hindi mo mapaninindigan ‘yan.

    • Don’t take risks with your physical appearance. ‘Wag mag experiment with drastic hairstyles or try a new stylist, or bumili ng mga bagong damit na hindi mo usual style. May tendency na magbago ang isip pagkatapos ng retrograde. INSTEAD: do the usual lang for now, regarding hair and clothes.

    • Don’t purchase expensive items or accessories kagaya ng alahas, watches, sapatos na mamahalin. INSTEAD: look for bargains kasi when you focus on getting a good deal ngayon, ok din talaga. Always compare first with other sellers, ma-pa mall or online, mas okay kasi na pag aralan muna, bago bumili ng mamahalin na bagay. Para hindi tayo magkaroon ng pag-sisisi or buyer’s remorse.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s start with how this cycle may affect you personally:

VENUS starts its reverse motion specifically in your solar 4th house, back to your solar 3rd house, covering the area highlighted below:

VENUS Retrograde 2018 CHART 05LEO.jpg

4th House Represents:
Home, Family, Roots, Ancestry and family History, Origins, Private Life, Parents, the Mother, Land, Real Estate
3rd House Represents: 
Communications, Launguage, Writing and Speaking, The Intellect, Short Trips, Transportation, Immediate Surroundings, Neighborhood, Siblings


This Venus Retrograde season urges you to re-discover what “Home” and “Family ” means now, for you. You may be faced with situations that require for you to re-define these terms at this point in your life. There are potential difficulties, kasi may mga katotohanan tayo na kailangan na i-update, at baka hindi tayo handang marinig ang mga ito. From the most inner private part of us, we are then required to zoom out, but only a little bit, as we re-examine our immediate community, and what part we truly play in it.

  • How is our relationship with our siblings, our neighbors?
  • Is there love in our interaction with our immediate environment? Kung wala, bakit?
  • When we communicate, speak, talk, write, do we do so with consideration for the other? Kung hindi, bakit?  
  • At this point in your life, are you in a place where you feel that you truly belong?

These are some of the questions that will need to be answered.

From October 6 – October 31

Venus prompts you to re-think the notion of home and family, and although this may sound simple, this process could make you feel raw and vulnerable. Is home now still a place, or has it turned into one person, a job, a dream that we chase? Certain past issues, heartches, mga sama ng loob or hinanakit when it comes to family tend to come up now, perhaps to help us get rid of old unhealthy baggage that we choose to keep hidden inside us. Perhaps there is a family issue that you need to help resolve, or perhaps you yourself have issues na kailangan mong mailabas. Venus facilitates a purge of some sort, para tuluyan ng mawala yung mga poison of pain that we are holding on to, regardless if we are aware of it or not.

Since Venus also rules  beauty and aesthetics,  the need to beautify, shop, re-decorate and buy things for the home, intensifies. Baka conflicted emotions make you feel like you need retail therapy, instead of sorting out issues. Mag ingat sa big expensive purchases, kasi may malaking chance for you to have buyer’s remose. Hindi malayong mag-bago ang isip mo about the item pag direct na ulit si Venus. NOT a good time for real estate, buying or selling! You probably won’t get the optimum price for your property, or vise-versa, the optimum worth of your money, so it’s best to wait until December 18, after Venus moves out of her retrograde shadow.

From November 1 -16

Venus moves back to the part of your sky that represents communications, your intellect and immediate environment. You now zoom out from issues regarding the home, to a re-examination of your neighborhood, your surroundings, and what immediate community you are choosing to be a part of. Is there joy in your interactions with your neighbors? You will be obliged to learn to communicate more clearly kasi what you say is prone to misunderstandings and misinterpretations, na talaga namang nakakainis. Conducive ka din ngayon sa drama due to chismis, kaya avoid idle senseless chitchat, if possible. Do you feel supported where you are, or do you feel like you have to try too hard? Again, these important questions come up. Wherever you may be, do you feel like you belong? kung hindi, bakit?

Also expect some sort of cleansing, pag dating sa communications. Social media may be a breeding ground for drama during this time, so instead of spending time browsing endlessly, it’s best to revisit lessons or classes that we wanted and once planned to take but never did – for example: learning a foreign language, attending a writing class, or maybe even a class on public speaking. Focus on self improvement, and don’t engage with community drama, if you can. Hindi yan worth it.

So that’s it! A bit challenging, but this can be very rewarding as well. Wag mag alala, there is nothing to be afraid of! Basta whatever happens, what is certain is that the lessons to be learned during this time will be well worth the effort. Kayang kaya yan! ❤

Good Luck LEO!!! you can do this!!!<3
