All retrogrades bring a “reconsideration” or other words that start with the prefix “re” in the matters of the sign and house the planet is transiting through. Retrogrades bring a focus inward and to the past as it relates to the present and future. It is a time when going back over things is a prominent theme. I always think of the Earthworm card from the Ted Andrew’s Animal Wise Tarot Card Deck when it is retrograde time. He talks about how the earthworm goes back over dirt making it fine and fertile soil. It is this going back over things that sets one up for fertile future experiences in the area of life being re-examined.
The retrograde transits bring planetary “opportunities” to strengthen weak links and set up stronger points of attraction for more enriching experiences. Often these “opportunities” come through some form of crisis, as they are often neglected for a long time and in a big way so Spirit needs to bring awareness in a way that sticks.
It is very important to note that although reexamination of major issues is common and indicated at this time, actually MAKING LIFE-CHANGING DECISIONS is not. More information will come throughout the transit so to take one moments insight and take action on it would likely be premature, as the retrograde promises we aren’t necessarily seeing clearly or all angles of an issue, especially on topics of love, beauty, and money.
Assessing, researching, working in the backdrop, experimenting without long commitment for things with low stakes, and in general “staying the course” during the revaluation is usually what is best indicated.
Venus Retrograde through Capricorn/10th House:
Capricorn/the 10th house rule work, career, father/father figures, authority figures/relationships with them, and “life purpose”.
It is very common for one to reconsider their work/career/how they make money during this time. Sometimes the transit could bring a slow down in income but I have also seen business boom during this time, especially for offerings repeated (not new offerings), and marketed to people/clients from the past.
Love in the work place from the past could return. For instance, someone you had a work romance with could get transferred to your area or show up at a meeting.
Love for your job could return. The retrograde is equally as likely to return gusto for work as it is to make one completely reconsider it. Sometimes the reconsideration process restores the passion.
Making money with a father/father figure could come up as an experience. Also, someone (from your past) in a powerful position could put you in a place of more recognition.
Reconsideration of your work “image” is another topic that could come up now.
Some questions you can proactively address during or that may naturally come up during Venus retrograde through Capricorn/the 10th house:
~ Does my father/step-father need me? Do I have some work to do on my relationship with father? Could my father help me with something if I would only ask?
~ Are there people from my past I could connect with that could advance my work/career/higher purpose?
~ What do I need to succeed? How can I receive support in getting what I need to succeed?
Summary/Resources for Venus retrograde in Capricorn/10th House:
~ Vocational training/research
~ Rekindling previous work/career connections
~ Bringing harmony to or back to relationship with father/father figure/authority figure
~ Researching/considering “big picture” image makeover as it relates to work/career (not necessarily the best time to actually DO the makeover, just the serious reconsideration and feeling into different aspects/possibilities
~ Get back in contact with /reconsider previous work-related romance ( not usually the best time to make commitments, just to reconsider )
A great affirmation for Venus retrograde in Capricorn/10th house:
I draw in full support for living in my Highest Purpose.
