refuel in the sun’s embrace
emerge with new strength
The planet Venus is currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. This means that from the perspective of earth, Venus appears to be moving backward.
Retrogrades can be challenging times. Venus represents love, beauty, relationships, art, and money. It is one of the “benefic” planets, known to bring blessings. So when it slows down and appears to be going backward, we might also feel like the parts of our lives that relate to Venus are also slowing down or “regressing.”
As part of the retrograde cycle, today Venus forms a conjunction with the sun, known as a cazimi.
Prior to the cazimi, Venus is in a weakened state. As it enters the heart of the sun’s embrace, Venus is recharged, infused with light and energy.
Think about how you feel after a day of warmth and sunshine, especially when that day comes after a period of low energy.
The warmth and sunshine infuse you with energy and optimism. You emerge feeling recharged and rebooted.
This is what’s happening with Venus today. It marks a turning point in its cycle. Like a new moon, which is also a conjunction with the sun, it heralds a new beginning.
Venus is still retrograde, and still in this place of review, but it is renewing its energy. And we can take our cue from this.
What seeds are you planting for your relationships?
How will you bring more beauty and art into your life?
Plant your intentions now and let them be infused with light that gives them strength to grow.
