Venus goes retrograde at 26° Capricorn, while on the same day Chiron goes direct at 8° Aries.
There’s a lot to talk about this very powerful Venus retrograde but at this point let’s just note that Venus goes retrograde on the same day Chiron goes direct. Venus is also conjunct Pluto, so we have some very powerful energies in the mix.
A very powerful emotional revelation (Venus retrograde conjunct Pluto) will unveil a hidden wound, at the same time setting in motion the necessary healing process (Chiron direct). It’s like we’re ready for healing, ready for love, but not quite there yet. We must go to the Underworld first.
The great news is that Venus retrograde comes with great clarity. We now know what we need to do – it’s just a matter of embarking on the journey and staying true to ourselves no matter what Pluto has to reveal.
