Get ready for intensity in relationships of all kinds. This can be thrilling or chilling depending on your past. The planet of love and personal connections goes retrograde through November 16. This can bring old lovers back into your life, bring up unresolved memories or give you a completely different perspective who you love and how you love. She’s in the sign of Scorpio so no doubt there will be some transformation! Venus was last in Scorpio in 2010 so any unresolved issues from that period of time will come to a conclusion now. The rule of thumb is to avoid getting married or starting any new relationship during a Venus retrograde, which happens every 18 months, however renewing vows would be a fantastic thing to do now. So if your relationship needs a restart, this is the time. On the 8th, a lovely Libra New Moon helps balance out the energy. How will this retrograde impact you? Here’s a sign by sign!
Aries (March 21-April 20)Financial transactions may stall and bring out a side of you that is less than pleasant. It may seem more dramatic than it truly is so try to keep things in perspective. There may be another way to get to where you want to go. It’s a good time to review any contracts or create a new financial plan.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Your ruling planet, Venus is in the spotlight bringing a reconnection or a reminder of a past relationship into your world. Jealousy or suspicion may cause friction but get all the facts before making any accusations. Clearing the air of any old hurts can do a lot to move your relationship into a better place.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)Stay away from gossip and secret sharing at work-you may have it wrong, and your desire to express your opinion may not be met with the best results at this time. Best thing to focus on this week is taking care of your health. Retry something that didn’t seem to work in the past -you’ll find the outcome will be better now.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)You’ve got the magic when it comes to attracting love and friendships. You may decide to give someone a second chance. Take it slow and keep your eyes open. Your spidey senses may be telling you something isn’t right and you should listen.
Leo (July 23-August 22)Matters of home and family take precedence as you reconnect with loved ones and redefine your role with family members. Let them know how much you love them, but set clear boundaries if you’re asked to do too much. Redecorating and home improvements are in order now.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)Relationships with siblings may become a bit tense under these conditions. However there are some beautiful opportunities for open discussion and getting your point across if you stay neutral and avoid blaming others. You’ll see things very differently now and discover a new opportunity to learn something valuable about yourself and others.
Libra (September 23-October 22)Money may seem a bit tight due to recent overspending but all is not lost. Digging into resources and talents you have can help you find new ways to supplement your income. You’ve got plenty at your disposal, but it may take a couple of months to get fully back on track.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)With Venus in your sign this is a period of self reflection and emotional and physical transformation. You’ll be focused on making sure your loved ones know how much you value them. You’ll also be weeding out anyone who isn’t on your side these days. Because Scorpio values loyalty more than anything.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)You may decide to take a break from a fairly new relationship just as things are heating up. If you’ve been in a long term relationship a little bit of space will do more good than you think. You’re in a pensive mood and self reflection is important. Just make sure to keep the lines of communication open so your partner knows how much you love them and that a time out isn’t because they did anything wrong.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Friends show you their true colors this week. The ones who come through for you will have incredible ideas to help you build a strong future or a dear friend may become a bit more than that. A bit of jealousy inspires you to be a better friend or lover.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Incidents this week force you to level up at work. You’ll be feeling as though you’re not in the loop as much but don’t pay attention to that. Relationship tension is likely a result of one of you needing to be right and it’s really not that important in the big picture.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)An opportunity for a dream vacation is on the horizon but it may take a bit of doing to make it happen. News about a romantic partner from your past has you wondering what might have happened if you stayed together. If you’re attached, your current partner will lavish you with attention. Enjoy it!
