Due to the current Retrograde motion of Venus, Venus reenters Leo today at 8:27 AM PDT. From uptight Virgo to limelight Leo, the goddess of love and art backtracks. If you have any Leo placements from 14.23° (the degree at which Venus will go Direct) to 30°, then you will be very heavily affected. Fixed and Fire signs of these degrees will also feel this transit quite strongly. You can think of Venus Retrograde a little like Mercury Retrograde, except in the realms of love and art. I experienced a whirlwind romance during one Venus Retrograde period several years ago and it ended quite painfully. That time Venus was transiting my Sun. It is not a propitious time to alter your look or have cosmetic surgery. You may hear from an old love from the past or experience a nostalgia for art and music from your childhood. As Venus reenters Leo we can expect a prolonged period of magical romance. Glamorous vintage fashions and classic looks may experience a resurgence now.
With Saturn stationing Direct on Saturday, this is not a weekend for fun. However, this could be a very powerful weekend for organization, careful planning, and work. Once Saturn is moving in phase we can move forward in our work lives and carefully advance towards ambitious goals. Mercury will bring us brilliant ideas and solutions, as it trines Uranus Sunday morning. The Moon will be in mystical Pisces on Sunday as well, expanding our imagination and making us particularly open to the intuitive flashes that characterize Mercury/Uranus.
