matthew currie astrology venus retrogradeVenus Retrograde begins on October 8th and last until November 16th. When a planet goes retrograde it doesn’t necessarily mean that everything that planet rules goes wrong, but there’s certainly a greater tendency for those things to go wonky. Just because Venus is the general ruler of affection and kindness and a good tasty meal and the throat and home decor and so on doesn’t mean that all of these things will get horribly screwed up during that time.

Having said that: during a Venus retrograde these things are much more likely to occur. Rather than worry about it though, why not have fun with it? Save this blog entry for October 6th and then start playing along. First person to complete a solid line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally wins a prize!

(Your prize will be that Venus is no longer retrograde, to be delivered on November 16th. Shipping costs included!)

14. “You mean they didn’t tell you the restraining order expired? Oh well, here I am honey, living across the street! Would you mind leaving your curtains open more often?”

16. Argue pointlessly and at length about an online quiz about which Golden Girl you’ll most be like when you hit retirement age.
