June 24: Venus Goes Direct
Venus goes direct at 11:48 p.m.
At long last, Venus—the planet of love, beauty, and attraction—moves direct again on her course around the sun. Since May 12, Venus has taken us all on an underground journey of the heart, tapping us all into the various ways that we needed to become more authentic in our relationships and intentions.
Many of us may have been revisiting past relationships, making amends and tying up loose ends. Some of us may have been feeling stalled when making romantic commitments, preferring to focus on understanding who we are and what we genuinely want before merging with another soul. Others among us may have had to face their vulnerabilities, jealousies, and insecurities, or to come to terms with traumas about past abandonment. It has been an essential time for everyone to get real about matters of the heart, and clear up any toxic patterns and limiting beliefs that have been blocking our path to our true desires.
Venus’ retrograde may also have been a time to go into a creative medium, reconnecting us to our artistic practices, and how these nourish our soul. Now we re-emerge with Venus on a direct course, with a sense of renewal. We have a new opportunity to grow and continue our journey much wiser and more self-aware.
We will have until August 4 to explore and play with Venus in magical Gemini, but this time around, we may feel like we are making progress at last. Though we may be starting to feel some momentum again today, the moon is still void of course until tomorrow morning. We should wait until the moon void of course ends before starting any new concrete project making any crucial commitments.
