Manstrology: Venus Retrograde Is Wreaking Havoc On Your Love Life

According to astrology, Venus is the goddess of love and ruling planet of love, beauty, pleasure, and money. It went retrograde Oct. 5 and stays there for 40 days, until Nov. 16. Going retrograde means Venus appears to move backward in the sky. When this happens, the planet’s energy begins moving inwards, pushing you to reevaluate what’s important to you in your relationships and finances. Oftentimes, this leads to a bevy of monumental changes.

Symbolically, the backward-moving planet of love will set off a chain reaction that will force you to look at your past relationships and how they affect your love life. This can even mean running into those exes you’d rather not see and painful memories of the past emerging. However, this isn’t all bad. Reviewing your love flubs can give you the perspective you need to move forward in your relationships.

However, if your relationship is already on shaky ground, Venus retrograde could force the end of things. This is a good time to review the role you play in your relationships and what that repeated behavior leads to. There’s no time like a retrograde to realize that the change that needs to be made is up to you.

Since Venus also rules finances, it’s a good time to look at your flow of money. If you know you’re overspending, stop. Take a hard look at your finances and create a budget. The work you do now will save you later. However, you’ll likely to have some unexpected expenses anyways.
