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 3rd house, back to your solar 2rd house, covering the area highlighted below:
3rd House Represents:
Communications, Writing and Speaking, The Intellect, Short Trips, Transportation, Immediate Surroundings, Neighborhood, Siblings
2nd House Represents:
Personal Income, Finances from your own efforts, Security and Stability, Money, Material Possessions, Innate Wealth, Values, Self- Worth,
This Venus Retrograde season urges you to re-assess the way that you see, understand and interact with the immediate world around you. The goal here is to have a greater, more rooted connection between you and your immediate environment, para mas maging appreciative ka of life and of people around you. Afterwards, you are called to zoom in, and reasess yourself, as you re-evaluate your own values and your self-worth.
During this time, the following questions come up:
- How do I view myself and my acheivements so far?
- Am I happy and content with what I have and what I own?
- Am I living up to my potential, especially when it comes to my ability to earn and provide for myself and those that I love?
From October 6 – October 31
At this time, VENUS prompts you to enter a period of re-examination when it comes to your neighborhood, your surroundings, and the immediate community you are choosing to be a part of. Is there joy in your interactions with your neighbors? E sa mga kapatid mo? Sibling tampuhan is very much probable now, and old wounds may surface, para mabigyan ito ng mga pagkakataon mag-heal. Ma o-obliga ka din to learn to communicate more clearly kasi what you say is prone to misunderstandings and misinterpretations, na talaga namang nakaka badtrip. 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 need to try too hard? Wherever you may be, do you feel like you belong? kung hindi, bakit? This is a question that needs to be answered.
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 you wanted and planned to take but never did – for example: foreign language classes, writing classes, or maybe even classes on public speaking. Focus on self-improvement, and avoid engaging with community drama. Hindi yan worth it.
Also, this is ABSOLUTELY NOT the time for you buy any kind of vehicle! Save yourself the heartache and hassle! Wait until next year or late December.. 3rd house rules transportation din kasi, and with Venus in retrograde, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
From November 1 – November 31
Venus moves back into the part of the sky that represents the way you see yourself, and the value that you put in your own financial acheivements. Money is usually the central theme when this house is activated: Am I earning enough? kung hindi, bakit? Magastos ka ba masyado, or mali lang ang diskarte? May tendency ngayon na magkaroon ng struggle pag dating sa income. May konting delay na nga ang mga collectibles, unforseen expenses will come out of nowhere pa, and you get to realize the importance of being financially astute. On the positive end, pwede naman to re-discover a different way of earning – something that you’ve considered before but decided not to pursue. Baka ngayon, the timing is right for some idea na hindi mo naman pinansin dati. Do not be afraid to explore and study these old concepts, kasi may chance for them to finally make more sense, this time around. Guard against unecessary spending! ‘Yan ang pinaka avoidable na heartche for you ngayon. Remember, Venus is retrograde on your money house, kaya hindi biro na ma-pa gastos ka talaga.
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 VIRGO!!! you can do this!!!<3
