The hat Venus wears here is the kind of taste mistake we could make during the retro period. ‘Cupid Complaining to Venus’ by Cranach the Elder {{PD-Art}}

Here’s a little of what I said in ECLIPSE about today’s retrograde of Venus (at 7:32 AM PDT at 23 Gemini 59):

Any Venus area where we have met a dead end while she’s direct is an area prime for rejuvenation during retrograde.

This means that the changed tastes and willingness to try the new and unusual in Venusian pursuits that typically surfaces during this time can be a means to re-generate a part of life that we have worn into a rut with too narrow a viewpoint, taste palette, or definition of what’s ‘right’ or appropriate for us. ‘New’ can definitely be the keyword that frees up an area and an approach leading to new relationships, experiences, and an enhanced aesthetic sense that lasts and benefits us long past Venus’ direction. The retro period can serve to modify our Venusian standards and perceptions so that they are wider and at the same time more refined once the planet appears to move forward again.

What do you make of the impending Facebook IPO during the retrograde period of the planet symbolizing, among other things, relationships and cash? I haven’t studied any charts related to FB, including Zuckerberg’s, but do feel that the stock is immensely overvalued, and that it may plunge drastically within months of the initial offering. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉 (then again, if I’m wrong, you can take yourself to lunch on your earnings!)

I‘m away from home right now, so if you’ve written to me and I haven’t answered, it’s because I’m sitting looking out at the Columbia River, dealing with wonky wi-fi and ridiculous heat for this part of the world in May–but I can still get books and ECLIPSE to you, so feel free to order and take advantage of the May Special–2 extra months for a 6 month subscription (for a total of 8) and 1 extra for a 3 month subscription (for a total of 4–and recommended if you’re not sure a Weekly Digest that has articles, commentary, and complete aspect and Lunar forecasts is for you!) If you’re renewing or adding to your existing subscription, you get those extra months, too! Order Now
