July 28 Venus shadow ends
We have been on a strange Venus retrograde trip since May 12th.
The shadow period began on April 9 and the shadow will end on July 28. Like all station directs the energy will lighten once Venus straightens out, but we will still have bits and pieces of stuff unfold until the shadow ends on July 28.
During this Venus retrograde process we should reflect on what we have learned about our values. Who? What? Why? These questions came up a lot during the retrograde in terms of values. Perhaps we were asleep on a value and realized, ‘wow, I almost screwed up that one’. Maybe it was a loved one whom we had taken for granted. Maybe it was us who had been taken for granted and we woke up. Maybe it was a situation that came up that we normally had remained muted on but we could not any longer and we stood up and supported someone. Maybe we backed off on something to let others do their work. If it died without our help then so be it. This Venus retrograde took place from beginning to end in Gemini. Any lessons that came up my have been activated by an emotion or a feeling but the processing of it was very mental and analytical. Venus stationing direct in Cancer lunar cycle will no doubt touch a watery emotional nerve. Perhaps it is relief, “Thank goodness I got through _____ “
Of course, money, beauty, love and creativity matters can straighten out as Venus now stations direct. Or how we approach them will be more focused with a new awareness.
