Venus will be in the spotlight for several weeks having stationed retrograde on October 5 at 10 degrees Scorpio. Venus will continue in reverse direction (from our perspective on earth) and retrograde back to 25 degrees Libra before it reverses again and stations direct. As mentioned before, any time a planet retrogrades, and all do except the Sun and Moon, it allows us to reflect, reconsider, and, if necessary, redirect our energies. In the case of Venus that includes relationships, our aesthetic, and our creative output. This period which lasts 40 days and 40 nights (sound familiar?) allows us to reconsider our relationships and our creative pursuits. Since Venus represents harmony, beauty, and diplomacy, we might see a reevaluation of our relationships, our lifestyle choices and how we express ourselves creatively. This theme can work both ways. You might decide to re-state your love for someone, or decide it is best to see less of each other, for example. On the broader global stage, we might be reconsidering choices that have been made and reverse our decisions, especially with Mercury in the scene. With Mercury involved in the aspect, and in Scorpio as well, new details might emerge that cast a negative shadow. In this case we might be relieved we made a discovery before a vote was cast. As with all retrogrades, the opportunity mull things over and, perhaps, chose a different approach, is the dominating theme. In this capacity we should review our paths, our choices, and maybe plot a new course. Retrogrades are not bad by any stretch of the imagination. Think of them more as a course correction or a chance to reinvest in others or not. To assume that all is backwards during a retrograde is fundamentally wrong. Where is Venus in your chart?

Other significant events of the week ahead include Mercury and Mars in a harsh angle to each other. Mercury is all about details, contracts, contacts, and communication. While in Scorpio, we can expect to see a deep dive into all of the aforementioned. Mars is about aggression and action and is the ruler of Scorpio. Scorpio rules the underworld, the hidden, and the devious. With an investigation currently underway reviewing the past deeds of a potential supreme court nominee, this does not bode well for such an investigation since it is likely that much will appear that was not known. A negative light may be cast on the situation and reveal new allegations. The aggression to move this forward may be prompted by Mars but therein lies the potential problem. While the powers may still try to forge forward, the impending outcome could be a disaster for any body or group that hastily tries to bury evidence and distract from the truth. There is a grave consequence for such an action and time will bear this out.
