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 Sagittarius/9th House:
Sagittarius/the 9th house rule different countries, cultures, languages, long-distance travel, international business, writing, speaking, publishing, communication with the intention of expanding consciousness, spiritual studies (as they relate to churches or general belief systems), teaching, learning, any form or method of education, creative solutions, anything involving the “bigger picture”.
When Venus is retrograde in this house or sign, love can come back from the past from any of these fields of experience, or work or play with a current partner can delve deeply into one of these topics.
Also, way you made money in the past from one of these areas could return or people from the past involving your connection to these things could come back in some notable way.
Intentionally re-connecting with people you feel drawn to may have good outcomes, especially if you keep commitments light and leave open the outcomes instead of trying to define or make longer term than may be best.
Great questions to ask during Venus retrograde through Sagittarius/the 9th house:
Is there a writing, teaching, learning ( or other Sagittarian/9th house based project) I started but didn’t finish that I have returning passion for?
Is there a location that I have been to that is “calling me” to return?
Is there a Sagittarian/9th house-based way I made money (see the list above) before that I can return to that will restore or improve my prosperity and/or fulfillment?
Is there a church or other spiritual studies I danced with before that I am drawn to go back to now?
