Retrograde Venus is not retrograde Mercury. It is more about payback, and I mean that in a good way.
I know some people out there are either already running into an old devil, or filling their HOPE CHEST with expectations. And because it is in Scorpio there are those more raw types out there who just want to get laid.
It can be a truly magical experience- like you buy a rickety old crappy table at a garage sale for a dollar and it turns out to be Marie Antoinette’s. So it presents objects of art that have tremendously appreciated in value over time.
Weird thing is, during Venus Retrograde sometimes your stock will fall, mainly because a turn in value cannot be 100% predicted because of other transits going on. In Scorpio of course, the intensity is always present, depending on where the New Moon + Venus falls (tune in to the monthly next week). I have with my own prying eyes, see two complete strangers meet “by accident” immediately fall in love, both single surprisingly, eventually marry and still be happy together as of this writing.
On the other hand I’ve seen another person unexpectedly meet a priest and have one of the hottest affairs on record (I didn’t of course).
So with Venus in Scorpio the big question is how appropriate is the deal during the getgo. Remember Venus in Scorpio always involves a Pluto-Persephone myth (mother-daughter, stranger). Sometimes this is a real kidnapping, but more often involving an intense, possessive love triangle.
So watch your old loves + lovers popup and give you a chance to reminisce, look back in nostalgia, or as I’ve said, shiver in horror at the thought.
