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 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 9th house, back to your solar 8th house, covering the area highlighted below:

8th House Represents:
Transformation, Joint finances, Other people’s money, Inheritances, Secrets, Sexuality, Taxes, Debts, Death and Rebirth
From October 6 – October 31
Venus stirs up wanderlust, as this period makes you feel your limitations, more than usual. The need to expand, break free and explore is high – adventure is out there, and you want to seize it! The mind focuses on exploration, learning and amassing experience, as things that have do with foreign places, foreign exploration and other issues that come from overseas figure out prominently during this time. Pwede i-consider ang love affairs with foreigners, or simply people with different ethnicities, kasi the allure of the exotic and the different runs very high.
There is a quality of ‘push and pull’ between your comfort zone and what is there on the great beyond. You may feel a little bit of regret regarding opportunities na binitawan mo na for whatever reason. Things like extended studies, a past romance, regrets about missed chances for travel, or other ways of exploration may also come up now for re-examination. Kaya pa kaya habulin or subukan, or too late na talaga? Decisions may either be reconsidered, or cemented for good.
Belief systems may also be shifting, and its very possible that things you strongly felt biased against, may be something you might be considering now, especially when it comes to your standards about Love and Beauty.
From November 1 – November 16
Venus re-enters the part of your sky that deals with transformations, joint finances and intimacies. Venus urges you now to focus on your deepest intimacies. Malalim ang emotions mo ngayong mga panahon na ito, as themes of sexuality, hidden fears, secrets, deep longings and other topics of the same nature are revisited and re-assessed in one way or another. Kung uhaw ka na sa intimacy or kung may mga hidden secrets ka about infidelities, or other taboo emotions, or any other issues with sexuality, mararamdaman mo ito ngayon deeply, and maybe it compels you to take much needed action. Deeply rooted issues will tend to come to the surface, and situations may happen beyond your control that may help you accept the truth, kung saan ka man in-denial. May mga bagay na kailangan tanggapin at harapin ngayon about your intimate partnerships and your ability to sustain or repel them.
Secrets tend to come out during this time, or if not secrets, very private emotions have a way of coming to the the surface. Mahirap mag-tago ngayon, especially since Venus is Scorpio, a fellow water sign. Venus in Scorpio is very skilled in uncovering whatever it is that we keep hidden, and your longings may be exposed. Hindi kailangan may event or may manlaglag sa’yo. Your truths are just very easy to detect now, for example, secret feelings you have hidden may seem so obvious to the bystander now just by your actions or the way you look at another.
May mga issues ba sa joint finances na hindi nadi-discuss? These things tend to come up now, para mabigyan ng much-needed resolution. This is a great time to discuss and re-visit agreements regarding joint finances. Retrogrades are generally a grea time to re-visit and review. In case you missed/glossed over some details, regarding joing finances, now is a wonderful time to correct and adjust.
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 gentle PISCES!!! You can do this!!!
