Swipe Left, Repeat. It's Your Venus in Retrograde Playlist

September 30, 2018

Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and luxury slips into retrograde motion on October 5, opening the gates of the romantic underworld. Traditionally, this is not considered a propitious time to begin a new love affair, so be extra careful of Tinder swipes and ex-lovers for the next 40 days or so.

Indeed, ghosts of relationships past might reappear, reminding us of the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of ourselves and perhaps others, thanks to soul-probing Scorpio’s influence.

Consider this an excellent moment to hold a funeral for whatever love affairs are still haunting you. Love is likely to be a bit more challenging this month, so here are a few tunes to help you roll with the mystery…
