Your lessons will always point the way to your blessings. It's time to slow down and focus on the patterns and cycles within your life, especially those that involve romance or finances. Knowing what the universe has been trying to teach you is the best way to create space for greater abundance and blessings.

Venus, the planet that rules love and money, begins retrograde in the week of July 17 – 23, 2023, and ushers in a karmic reboot for your entire life. The planet of love retrogrades every two years or so and brings a powerful point of reflection for you to start incorporating new lessons. However, this year is made all the more potent by the nodes switching signs.




At the start of the week, the North Node will shift into Aries and the South Node into Libra, closing out one cycle and beginning a brand new one. This is the time to realize any lessons that have been showing up in your life and do your karmic sweep. Otherwise, the universe will force your hand and make what needs to change, so obviously, there will no longer be an option not to.


Venus slows down as the nodes shift into new territory, beginning forty days and nights in the underworld, far from the brilliant Sun's reach. It's time to change into what is real instead of what you wish was and to take that sometimes harsh lens of truth to every facet of your life.

Venus retrograde offers a powerful time to view your romantic lessons, notice the patterns or cycles you're stuck within or even those situations where you ignore reality because you wish it were different. As you journey through the underworld with the planet of love, focus on what it is teaching you, what new actions you can take and how to incorporate all your lessons into the magical blessings of manifestation.
