The End of Venus Retrograde: Catharsis and Healing! April 15, 2017, 6:18am EST

There is SO MUCH exciting energy this weekend, starting with the end of Venus Retrograde on Saturday! 

After a long 7-week retrograde period that started on March 4th we find Venus conjunct to Chiron in Pisces as it stations direct. Chiron represents the pain of our past and has been in Pisces for some time – this has brought opportunities for us to identify and release insecurities that have blocked us from accessing our true inner happiness and sense of peace. Venus generally brings us gifts and as it stations direct, it expresses both the culmination of the ‘pressure’ of this retrograde period and the ability to achieve resolution. So the energy of this weekend brings a wonderful healing ‘catharsis’ that allows us to let go of the ‘old wounds’ we have been carrying for too long.  Challenges that we have been experiencing over the last 7 weeks in our relationships or career lives, or related to our own sense of self esteem and self worth can now come to a conclusion. So my affirmation for you this weekend is “I face my fears so that they can be released.” 

The moon in Sagittarius over the next few days brings a refreshing optimistic outlook, belief in the ultimate good in the universe and the ability to see beyond superficial differences.  And Venus in Pisces is in a sextile with Mars in Taurus Sunday night, squaring Saturn on Monday. This helps us to find grounding energy, a sense of conviction to our personal values and the focus needed to pursue our goals. 

It may not be easy to move forward because we may need to make hard choices and sacrifices, but the way forward is more clear now and we know what we need to do. With this renewed perspective and self confidence we can persevere and see how the pieces need to fall into place. Take it one step at a time now but have faith in positive outcomes! 

Peace 🙂
