Being open-minded is not easy, especially when you are madly in love, but it makes it all the more important. Knowing this and knowing the retrograde of Venus on May 13, you may expect the worst scenario to happen, but as your retrograde love horoscope of Venus shows, this might be an opportunity for you to look at things from a different angle.
Venus is the planet of love, beauty, relationships, and values and when it begins its retrograde journey through Gemini on May 13, Venus will slow down, no longer working to its full potential. While the term “retrograde” may scare you, retrograde cycles are ideal for thinking, revisiting, and reviewing planetary themes.
And with Venus retrograde, you will be asked to reflect, and review your relationships, your values, and your sense of security. Because it goes through Gemini, Venus will always be Venus, but you can expect to find pleasure and value in mercurial things. In addition to feeling challenged, you may also feel the need to think about how you communicated with your personal and professional partners.
Traveling back, the planet of love could also be incredibly instructive in terms of your hobbies, interests, and other fun outings. What are you doing for fun? What brings you happiness and comfort? It doesn’t matter if you are the curious or adventurous type, you never know what you like until you try it. Take the opportunity to reassess these interests.
Here’s how retrograde Venus in Gemini could affect your life, depending on your zodiac sign:
Aries: You examine your communication style
Retrograde Venus is a great opportunity for you to think about creative projects and bond with your siblings and peers.
Taurus: You think about your value system
With Venus retrograde, you will have the opportunity to step back and reassess everything, from your value to your definition of pleasure.
Gemini: You reorganize your appearance
Do not judge a book by its cover, Gemini. That said, with the planet of love and charm retrograding in your sign, themes related to your unique aesthetic and physical appearance will be at the forefront.
Remember that you are beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside, so there is no need to judge yourself so harshly. Instead, use this time to review, rework, and think about how you experience your relationships.
Cancer: You relight your divine connections
It is also the home of forgiveness and karma, which means that you can also meet your past along the way. Keep your heart open.
Leo: You reflect on your sense of belonging
Should you go beyond the friends’ area, Leo? You’ve always been everyone’s ride or die, but what about what you want? Venus retrograde will not only resurface but will also play a role in your social circles.
It is also a good time to tap into your inner rebel and experience your love life.
Virgo: You are reimagining your contribution to the world
Venus will demote through your ambitious 10th house of career, authority, and reputation around the world, which means you’ll have the opportunity to think about everything from your public image to your sense of authority.
Libra: You remember past adventures
With your succulent governing planet retrograding through your ninth vast house of foreigners and adventures, you might find yourself ready to try everything from writing sweet love notes to your long-distance correspondent to planning your next romantic getaway.
Be open to what comes to you.
Scorpio: You think about the meaning of intimacy
Your past shapes your psyche and with Venus retrograding through your eighth sensual house of sex and intimate unions, you will have the opportunity to review your past experiences and reflect deeply on your sexuality.
Sagittarius: You reassess the dynamics of your relationship
Is the feeling reciprocal? Do you communicate openly and wholeheartedly?
Capricorn: You reflect on your acts of service
Use this time to also assess your productivity in the workplace and whether or not it affects your relationship.
Aquarius: You revisit passionate projects and love stories
Retrogrades bring back the past, which means that you may or may not feel an urge to respond to this cryptic “hey” when your iMessage alerts go off. When your past calls you, it’s up to you how (or if you want to) respond.
Pisces: You reorganize your delicious humble home
With Venus retrograde via your fourth house, you will probably think of new ways to spice things up in your relationship, as long as it is friendly in pajamas.
