Sometimes You Just Have to Go with It

Often people will ask me if they should take a job during Mercury Retrograde and I will say, “Do you have a job” and they will say “No” and I will say, “hell yes you should take the job”. I think people that are not astrologers think astrologers are always looking at the stars to make all of our life decisions and it really isn’t that way; at least not for me. Would I avoid travel during Mercury Retrograde almost always, would I be hesitant to go on a date during Venus Retrograde sure; but I rarely let the stars stop me.

Besides over the years I have wondered how much being aware really helps, sometimes I think we can really do little to stop the hands of fate.

Sometimes You Just Have to Go with It

Often people will ask me if they should take a job during Mercury Retrograde and I will say, “Do you have a job” and they will say “No” and I will say, “hell yes you should take the job”. I think people that are not astrologers think astrologers are always looking at the stars to make all of our life decisions and it really isn’t that way; at least not for me.

Would I avoid travel during Mercury Retrograde almost always, would I be hesitant to go on a date during Venus Retrograde sure; but I rarely let the astrological climate prevent me from living my life.

Besides over the years I have wondered how much being aware really helps, sometimes I think we can do little to stop the hands of fate.

I have read for many people I will caution; you are having a Neptune/Sun transit this is not a really great period for trusting and welcoming in new partners but they fall in love anyway.

I have read for women that have had Uranus transiting their 5 house and have advised them; “if you don’t want a child use a contraceptive” and guess what 9 months late I am a baby shower.

Sometimes things just happen and sometimes those things are a part of what shape us.

Someone emailed me wanting to know if they should go on vacation, they had some concerns Saturn (Lord of Karma, restrictions and delays) was transiting their 9th house (home to long distance travel) and I said 100% go ahead. I traveled to Costa Rica when Saturn was in my 9th. I was around much older people during my trip -this is a Saturn thing; older people, older places, older things.

This time I went to Peru, I have Saturn exact opposite my Jupiter ~Jupiter is the planet that rules far off destinations. This transit is very tiring, you know Saturn squeezes the life out of whatever it touches when it opposes Jupiter it’s your enthusiasm. I booked my trip anyway knowing this, I thought if anything I will just be lethargic this

It turns out while I was in Peru, they had a strike going on and it caused a lot of issues for tourism.

So, the trip was very touch and go. During one portion of our trip a group of us were up on top of these ruins and our Tour Guide announced we had to leave. At the worst I would say it was not seamless, but I got to see everything on my list, all of my hotels were lovely, and the people I met on my travels were amazing! And I wouldn’t undo or redo it if given the chance.

This is my little PSA to those just getting into astrology that sometimes you have to make your own sun and believe in the best, believe in the possibilities. You can be cautious, you can be aware, you can have a plan B, and sometimes your gut will tell you this isn’t the job, vacation, or lover for me and when it does honor that, but sometimes transits can be just hiccups not defining moments. Astrology should be a guide but not a substitution for your inner compass.

I think I have Venus Retrograde running through my veins

Its 6am and I m awake I think I have Venus Retrograde running through my veins. The days I can’t sleep are rare…today is one of them. Venus is on its way to turning retrograde in the industrious sign of Capricorn in my 12th house of endings, secrets, karma, seclusion, subconscious, a lot of what we don’t see and yes self-undoing. Some Capricorn keywords are work, worth, responsibility, and seriousness. Capricorn is an earth sign so dependability and practicality are celebrated when planets are placed in the sign of the mountain goat.
Venus hasn’t even catapulted into full on retrograde motion and I have already begun to feel it. That quiet review of my finances, coming up with a financial strategy (Venus rules money) Next year should I go on Vacation (Venus rules enjoyment) or remodel my kitchen (Venus also rules beautification) perhaps I can work like a maniac (Capricorn) and do both. But then there is the other side of Venus, the side that speaks to your heart that in Taurus fashion (ruler of Venus, along with Libra) has us questioning what is of value? Do things and people that we once placed on a Venusian pedestal still have value in our current lives? Revelations I want to put the brakes on it, too late it is already in its shadow period and I feel that sudden uprooting of things I would rather not know, see or feel. How very 12th house of me. I’ve already had my first contact from ghosts of hook ups now past. We use to work together, how very Venus in Capricorn. He said to me you are meant to be someone’s wife not just a girlfriend and I thought this is very Venus in Capricorn, know your worth. After seeing him I had my own revelations about myself, how once I’m done with someone there simply isn’t any turning back. This is probably why I struggle with relationships. It is important that they keep momentum that they always stay fresh and new. I also began to think about endings. When things end for me they usually are engulfed in flames and how only a few years ago I was desperate for a happy ending. But now I much prefer an ending that is etched in stone that has bridges set a blaze behind me. So you know that it is done and you can’t turn back even if you wanted too. This has also brought me face to face with feelings that I keep turning a blind eye too over a friendship that suddenly dropped off, that didn’t come equipped with that definitive end. How something that once seemed bathed in beauty (Venus), is now nothing. When we first met I recall thinking I want to look at them every time like it’s the first time with all that wonder and amazement. But now it’s like I don’t know them, like I never knew them. I have tried several times to reach out to them, I am not sure why maybe because this ending was unsatisfactory to me. Only to realize that there is no satisfactory ending when you don’t want things to end. I reached out and I reach out and that sudden revelation that I’m the only one reaching and this is it. This is the end. ( oh so 12th house).There isn’t any going back, and I should stop trying to meet someone half way that doesn’t want to meet me at all, this current situation is no longer of any value. Venus in retrograde reassessing what is worth it? Self-undoing never is, make sure you are getting a return on your investments. I tweeted today “nothing real ever dies so what we had was never real”. Capricorn is enduring, long lasting, so let’s remember to have 2 open palms this Venus retrograde one to release all unhappy endings and one to catch some new beginnings once she goes direct January 31. Upward and onward my friends knowing when to hold them and when to fold them seems to be on this year’s holiday menu.
