The Venus Retrograde to come will begin in Scorpio on October 5th and end in Libra on November 16th. During this period of time, you will notice an increase in sexual tension as well as a lot of anger.
This retrograde beginning in one sign and ending in another means a lot of conflict for all of us. Venus for those who do not know is the goddess planet and ruler of love. It is the planet that watches over our hearts.
This retrograde is going to be touching you in more ways than you might realize and how you deal with the challenges ahead will really make a difference in the months to come.
Because Venus does not necessarily retrograde often, this is a rare treat we should all do our best to embrace. During this time you will be forced to reevaluate your life and where you are headed but more-so in a way that makes you question the people closest to you.
You will be feeling better about yourself and really working to bring yourself more pleasure.
Astrology King wrote as follows in regards to this interesting astrological event:
Venus square Mars increases your sex drive but can cause relationship difficulties, especially if there is already some underlying sexual or competitive tension.
Yet in a healthy relationship, where both partners have equally strong egos, you may enjoy a more exhilarating sexual activity. If single, your increased sexual desire will match your more attractive aura.
However, if dating, you should take care not to lower your standards or put yourself at risk because of your impatient lust. Affairs are more likely during Venus retrograde 2018 but not necessarily of a lasting nature.
So in a good relationship, you express your love through sex. But in a difficult relationship, you are more likely to express hate because of a buildup of sexual frustration.
This is probably not the best time to work out the underlying causes of relationship tension because the need for sexual satisfaction is so primal it overrides all else. Compromise will help avoid hostility, but a tendency to agree to anything just to get your way could lead to loss and regret.
Venus square Mars also brings anger, lack of self-control and impulsiveness to Venus retrograde 2018. So if you are already an inpatient or aggressive person, try not to lose your temper if you face rejection.
There are other ways to safely express your frustrations. Try to release physical tension in productive ways through sport, exercise or masturbation. You could also channel this energy into creative work like sculpture or dance.
When it comes to the Scorpio aspect of this retrograde you are going to be feeling much more seductive. You will be pushed to really get up and get yourself out in the world. You will finally be taking hold of all of the things you have been wanting.
Now, when it comes to the Libra aspects you are going to be feeling quite obsessive and intense which shows just how conflicting these energies are going to be. This whole ordeal will mean something different for each of us but regardless the things to come bring forth positivity.
