Happy Venus Retrograde lovers! :D
So wtf actually is Venus Retrograde? Well, it's when Venus appears to be going backwards in the sky. You know how when Mercury goes Retrograde it throws a whole bunch of light on what's going on in the communication areas of our lives? Well, Venus is kind of like that but it throws light on the stuff we love.
Stuff concerning Love and Money are the main things that come to the surface during a Venus Retrograde, and I always find that usually it's stuff that is ready to be cleared.
It's an awesome time to let go of exes and past crushes, to do some work on your own money/abundance stuff and the thing I love best about Venus Retro, is it always highlights to me what I really value and care about.
So I created this really simple spread to help you to work out what you value, and how to reconnect to the things you appreciate and love the most.
Grab yourself a tea in a unicorn mug and a deck of cards (tarot, oracle, newagehipster instaoracle or whatever!) and let's do this!
CARD ONE: where's your heart at?
Venus retrograde will show you what's going on in your heart in a big, big way. This card will help you to work out where you are, what's on your heart and if you have any blocks or challenges in this area.
I got the Ace of Swords (current stalker card!) and to me this is all about feeling into the new power energy coming in, but also blending my heart and mind stuff.
CARD TWO: what are your subconscious values?
Sometimes we really aren't aware of what we value. We might be saying we value one thing, but actually, when we dig a little deeper we find out there's a lot more going on!
I got the Queen of Pentacles. This was pretty big! I always like to pride myself on not really being focused on cash money, but this reminds me that actually, I do really value financial abundance and security, perhaps more than I realise at times!
CARD THREE: what do you no longer value?
Values change. What you value now will probably be very different to what you most valued a few years ago and that's usually a good thing!
I got the Page of Wands and to me this feels like a hello from some of my old values around being seen, dancing on the podium in the club and getting the lead in the school play. While I still value being seen, I feel like I now value being heard and being understood a lot more than just being "seen".
CARD FOUR: what do you *think* you value?
Ooooh, this can bring up some stuff! Sometimes what we think we value is not what we value at all!
I got the Five of Wands. A little bit of a weird one in this position, but what I get from this is that I *think* I value competition, hustle, having things to do, things to deal with and rushing around being cray busy. I don't really value that stuff, what I do value is a chill life. *Jaw drop. Totes.
CARD FIVE: how can you best reconnect with what you value and love most?
This card will help you to connect to what is really important to you in the here and now.
I got the Hierophant here. This feels a bit like teaching what you know. I can reconnect to what I love by helping others to reconnect to what they love. Naaw!
