If your love life has gone all whack, or perhaps even disappeared altogether, you can at least partially blame Venus for the hijinx. Who does that hussy think she is trampling all over our love lives? That vixen of a planet has been retrograde since October 8, 2010 and she simply refuses to give us a break. So you, dear friends, will have to steal one.
I always think that there's no point in sitting around moping just because the planets won't cooperate to bring the kind of love/sex/adoration I deserve. So, it's going to be a little harder to get our love on in the weeks to come -- so what? Venus isn't the first mean girl we've encountered, and she's not likely to be the last.
I think a ritual is in order. Something to show Venus who's in charge. She might be doing a backward strip tease through the zodiac, but we can still change our love Karma in spite of her.
Here's a cosmic love-karma ritual that will work for any sign. It's best performed at night ...
You will need:
Soft music, a journal and pen, a lit candle, a toilet.
Play the music. Write in the journal by candlelight.
Write about all the nasty, no good, dishonest, mean, stupid, hurtful things that have happened to you and/or because of you in the name of love.
Tear out a page. Hold it over the toilet. Light it on fire. Drop and flush. Say, "That was then."
Leave the toilet and go back to writing. Say "This is now."
Write about a wonderful love you would like to have in your life. Write like you already have it.
Close the book. Turn off the music. Blow out the candle. Say, "Work with me Venus."
PS. Write and tell me how this worked for you!
