Venus Retrograde in Taurus - May 13th June 25th

Last month I mentioned that Venus was transiting the sign of Taurus from March 28th to August 1st. So this transit is still going on during the month of May. If you would like to review what I said about that transit and how it applies to your chart, here is the link to that article which is now on my website under the news section. 
 
This month Venus goes retrograde from May 13th to June 25th. When a planet is retrograde, its energy moves inward. We typically experience this as a sense of obsessing on what that planet signifies. Obsessing means we go over and over an idea in our mind. With Venus, this means that we think repetitively about relationships, marriage, partnership, creativity, sexuality, beauty, style, love, or pleasure. This can be a good thing, if for example, it leads us to reflect on our marriage or romantic partnership with the intention of improving our understanding or healing our emotions. It can be a negative thing if we allow ourselves to repeat behaviors or ways of thinking that are caused by our negative emotional baggage, without taking responsibility for that baggage.
 
So instead of giving you a new set of transit predictions for your chart this month, I am giving you a homework assignment. Click on the link given above, and reread the transit predictions given for your chart last month. Then factor in the slightly compulsive, slightly urgent, slightly more complicated and obsessive energy of Venus in its retrograde phase. See if you notice how Venus retrograde is making some of those predictions happen, but with a slightly more complicated quality. And then see if you can step back and observe the emotions, thoughts or events that you experience from the perspective of a neutral observer. From that perspective, see if you have any insights as to how to improve, refine, or perfect your various Venus experiences.
