Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades (for Mercury, Venus, and Mars Retrogrades) by Annie Botticelli   I always liken the energy of a personal planet being retrograde as the time when the ‘tide rolls in’.  If you are trying to push your boat out to sea when the tide is coming in, the odds of your desired outcome are limited as there are forces of nature working against you.  However, there are things that are even more favored during a retrograde that you can focus on to best use the energy and make the transit more smooth, enjoyable, and productive.   Here are some examples of what I love this time for:
Powerful Full Moon in Leo Reveal & Release Ceremony by Annie Botticelli Ceremonies during astrological power periods help us to make the most of the potentials of the event.  Full Moons often brings things to fruition or fulfillment, marking important endings. Sometimes the Full Moon brings things out of hiding and into the light so secrets and other hidden things can often be brought into the open at this time.  Blocks to desired outcomes can often be revealed and point to steps to take to fulfill the goal.
  Your Definitive Guide to Venus Retrograde through the Signs and Houses - Capricorn/the 10th House ... The planet Venus is also called the Triple Goddess because it rules three distinct areas of life: 1. Money 2. Love and 3. Beauty/Aesthetics Every 18 months or so, Venus will appear to be going backwards in its orbit, which is called a “retrograde”.  The potential lessons and other manifestations for a retrograde can have some different expressions than when a planet is moving direct. This is part 10 of a 12-blog series that covers extensively the potentials of Venus moving retrograde through the signs and houses.
Wonderful Attributes of Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart   I don’t watch many videos on astrology, usually I am making my own.  However, recently I had a video about Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart come to me and since someone close to me has this placement, I was interested in what the person making the video had to say.  I listened to almost half of the video, which was done by an amazing astrologer who is well-known and does much for the world with their work.  I was surprised by how negative this persons interpretation on Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart was and upon further research, I found that this was consistent with the other online resources about Venus retrograde in the birth chart. I believe that each planet, sign, and transit have a SPECTRUM of potentials that run from positive to negative.  To focus on the aspects of a placement that could be considered negative or challenging is to miss much important working knowledge on the matter. This experience motivated me to share some positive counterbalance on the placement of Venus retrograde in the birth chart.
