Venus Retrograde to Pisces Apr 2 thru Apr 15  – Relationships, Values, and Finances

Venus is very active this month as she finishes the last leg of her backward and inward journey in the sign of Pisces, which adds a little steam, fog, fantasy, or denial detox.  She is going back to look for the girl she used to be, find someone she used to love, or connect with something that used to light up her life. Venus in Pisces softens the feminine energy, she seeks to understand and dives deep in to the collective psyche for answers, and she uses the memories and wisdom of the past to reveal a vision for the future.  As she traveled through Aries, the energy felt like retreating, retrenching and refortifying, and her last mission in Pisces is to find and connect to her compassion, universal love, and intuitive abilities, which rounds out the total package of inner strength for the potential battle ahead.

When Mars goes retrograde, men get weird, and when Venus goes retrograde women get a little strange and act in unusual ways. The “re” prefix is applied to Venus ruled areas in the same way as when Mercury is retrograde:  re-finance or re-invest in an asset, re-vive a romantic relationship, re-vise your values, or re-assess what you believe to be valuable in your life. You may also feel the need to economize your actions and efforts, reduce the amount of time you spend on some things, cut away duplication of efforts, or omit useless steps.

If you manage the Pisces energy well, then love and relationships become spiritual, dreamy, and romantic, and you can show your love to others by accepting them exactly the way they are and allowing them to feel that your love is unconditional. Relationships may lack clarity or direction, but this altered state can open up new possibilities for relating, connecting, and merging.  Because Venus is moving backward, she has to consciously control her lower form impulses to avoid using unhealthy means to escape from the realities of life.  If you are feeling this side of Venus, be gentle with yourself and be careful with drugs and alcohol, dependent relationships, and anything addictive.  It is better to escape by reaching out to those you love and spending quiet time together, finding peace within, releasing expectations, and practicing being in the moment to enjoy and appreciate what is here now rather than planning for the future.


Saturn in Sagittarius Retrograde Apr 6 thru Aug 25 – Life Lessons, Structure, and Limitations
When Saturn moves backwards, there is a shift in energy, and you have the opportunity to review all that you have learned and experienced since Aug 2016.  You have been doing some serious work related to your personal growth and development in whatever area of life Saturn is transiting in your chart, with the ultimate goal of facing reality and living more authentically.  ***Current clients should go back and read your Saturn Transit in the What’s Happening Now section of your 2017 Astrology Report.

During the retrograde, you may be more introspective, take a step back, and think about where you feel blocked or stifled, and you plan rather than execute. When Saturn is in Sagittarius a big part of your work involves understanding what you believe and how your beliefs help or hinder you in manifesting your best life.  He brings the opportunity for maturing and handling responsibilities more skillfully by breaking down your current support systems, which can be uncomfortable, but at the same time building back a new foundation that is stronger and more secure, functions better, and aligns with your future vision.

Consciously decide what it is that you believe and whether what you believe is helping or hindering you in the effort to achieve your goals and experience true fulfillment.  If not, then replace your beliefs with something new, which will create momentum, self empowerment, and strength for when you move forward again with your efforts to construct your vision in August.  Sometimes the only thing you need to believe in is yourself, and that’s what matters most.


Mercury Retrograde in Taurus Apr 10 thru Apr 20 – Communication and Intellect 
When Mercury begins to move backward in Taurus, the usual care should be taken with communications, travel, and technology, and you may feel the urge to re-do something related to the sign of Taurus such as re-decorate, re-finance, re-invest, re-plant, re-create, or re-brand.  Turn around and face the bull or bully, and pay special attention to the area ruled by Taurus in your Natal Chart for clues as to what needs to be re-addressed over the next couple of weeks. Taurus is slow moving on its own, but with Mars also in Taurus and lots of other planets moving backward, this retrograde time period may feel excruciatingly drawn out compared to the fast paced energy of the past couple of months.  Intellectual and physical efforts just creep along at a cow’s pace, but the changes you are able to make are long lasting and evergreen.

This Mercury creates conversations that are deliberate, thoughtful, and practical, and how you say something is just as important as what you are saying. The mind uses all of your senses to process information and understand situations, and the intellectual energy is grounded and earthy, so use your inner common sense as your best guidance system.Meeting settings should be tasteful and experiential in a way that allows participants to use their senses by seeing demonstrations, physically participating, and taking abstract concepts to some form of reality.  Create simple agendas that deal with practical matters, and present topics and ideas that directly concern those involved, add value to the organization, or focus on making money. Discussions move slowly and surely or follow a process, and there may be a tendency for yourself or others to stubbornly attach to opinions and ideas or stand firm in convictions, so it may be necessary to prod the herd along as you patiently take the necessary amount of time to get to a well-thought out direction or decision.


Full Moon in Libra Apr 11 – Manifest
The Moon in Libra, your internal process, is focused on your relationships and relating to others, and the Sun in Aries, your conscious and ego, is concerned with Y-O-U and has a more self-centered orientation. Two weeks ago at the New Moon in Aries, you may have set the intention to take a solitary journey to achieve something on your own or for yourself, and now you may need to consider others as part of this effort or figure out how to balance the polarity of you and them to fully manifest your goal.

The key to balancing this dynamic is to see things from the perspective of love, peace, and cooperation in relationships (Libra) versus independence, confrontation, offenses and defenses, and conflict (Aries). Both the Sun and the Moon are strong in these signs, but the Moon in Libra, wants harmony and justice for all and the Sun in Aries wants to face the issues and push an agenda. Venus rules this Full Moon and is currently in the sign of Pisces, so you may find using your intuition points you in a new direction, or seeing the big picture and finding a compassionate solution is helpful in your situation.  There is a need to find common ground and bring both sides together to do the best thing, not only for yourself, but for everyone involved.


Venus in Pisces Direct Apr 15 thru Apr 28 – Relationships, Values, and Finances

Venus finishes her journey backward and inward, turns around in the sign of Pisces, and starts walking through the steam, fog, fantasy, or denial toward the light of new beginnings.  Did you find the girl you used to be, connect with someone you used to love, or bring life to something that used to light you up?

Venus in Pisces softens the feminine energy, she seeks to understand and dives deep in to the collective psyche for answers, and she uses the memories and wisdom of the past to reveal a vision for the future. ​​​​​​​ If you manage the Pisces energy well, then love and relationships become spiritual, dreamy, and romantic, and you show your love to others by accepting them exactly the way they are and allowing them to feel your unconditional love. Relationships may lack clarity or direction, but this altered state can open up new possibilities for relating, connecting, and merging.  Avoid using unhealthy means to escape from the realities of life such as drugs and alcohol, dependent relationships, and anything addictive.  Instead, reach out to those you love and spend quiet time together, find peace within, release expectations, and practice being in the moment to enjoy and appreciate what is here now rather than planning for the future.

As Venus travels from Pisces toward Aries, you are using compassion, universal love, connection, and intuitive abilities to center yourself and find your way forward, because when she gets to Aries the force of the strong woman within is externally released, and you use what you learned during the retrograde for the fight for self-realization ahead.  Continue economizing your actions and efforts, reduce the amount of time you spend on some things, cut away duplication of efforts, or omit useless steps and avoid falling back into unconscious habits.  It is time for strong women to go out and rule the world and make it a better place!
