Venus Christ!: Our Lady in Retrograde



I’m so nice, Venus Christ!


Venus is officially in retrograde in Gemini y’all and I couldn’t be happier. I absolutely adore this time that only comes around every 18 months. Venus doesn’t slow down as often as other planets, she makes you work for it honey.


Maybe I’m slightly biased because my sun sign (Libra) is ruled by Venus. Maybe just a little; however, I still say it’s the most wonderful time of the year (and a half)!


Oh, and just in case you’re thinking that love is the only things that will come up for consideration during this time, allow me to remind you that Venus is the Empress. In addition to love, she’s about nourishing and nurturing ourselves meaning she’s gonna add to the recent potent Scorpio full moon vibes that just rolled through surrounding what lies beneath be it beauty or a beast. Beauty and a beast, you mean like those Gemini Twins?





It’s a beneficial time for evaluating how we nurture ourselves and our relationships, if our relationships are favorable to our lives to begin with, what beauty is to us and how we create it. Sitting in Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, we wanna take a look at how we express ourselves. Do we hide what we truly wish to bring forth feeling it isn’t as valuable as the more externally accepted parts? Do we speak our truth or bury it?


We also may consider earning a living through our expression and creativity during this time and Mami Venus is all about healthy ways of making money honey. Cue Oshun.


I hope you enjoy this time as much as I do as our fair Lady goes on this journey for 40 days and 40 nights. Sound familiar?


And most of all, I hope you take this time to embrace and nourish the paradox within, knowing that our beauty comes from loving ourselves, all of ourselves in totality, in unity.


Beauty & Love & Wealth & Joy to the world!


Your fair Libra Lady,

Iyshia ❤︎
