Astrological Ramblings

I want to start Part II of this series off by making it very clear that you are so much more than your Sun Sign or your “Big Three” (The Sun/Moon/Rising). If you went off of the basic or trendy instagram/facebook/etc post about astrology, you might be inclined to to think that you’re Sun Sign is literally the only thing that matters, or that your “Big Three” compose the sum of your astrological parts. Personally I take real issue with this sort of astrology that is passed around the internet like some incurable clusterfuck of infectious diseases. Infection is a good word for it, really. I get the some of the memes and posts are funny (though some are downright stupid and only used as a source for starting some shit), but the infection happens when people take silly memes and posts to heart, using them as learning tools, because they don’t yet know anything else. So they believe that they’re toxic because they’re a Pisces Sun. They believe that they’re “boring” because they are a Virgo Sun, or that they are equal to “The Devil” because they’re a Gemini Sun. Obviously, universally, people don’t believe this popsicle bullshit, but for people who are just dipping their feet into astrology and starting out, and then seeing some nonsense like they are the devil because they are a certain Sun Sign, it can be be discouraging. And it’s just fucking incorrect. I don’t hold the learners accountable here, but those who […]
Lately I’ve seen so many different posts on the different forums that I creep on and articles written on different astrology websites about Transit Venus going Retrograde. Generally, these posts tend to have a slightly more negative slant to them (or dare I even say some fear?) involved in the line of questioning and phrasing. I think a lot of this has to do with the general negative or difficult view of retrograde planets in general, but Transit Venus Retrograde (or even Transit Retrograde Planets in general) aren’t universally a negative thing. I’m actually quite partial to them in general. They absolutely serve a purpose, even if they impact your chart in a “challenging” way (either in your actual Natal Chart or via Transits, Progressions, etc). Venus Retrograde is a particularly interesting planet to go retrograde because out of all the planets, Venus goes Retrograde the least often. It will be Retrograde from May 13, 2020 through June 26, 2020. When looking at how Venus Retrograde will impact your own Natal Chart, it’s really important to look at the house cusps in your chart that are ruled by the Venusian planets (ie: those that are ruled by Taurus and Libra). Specifically pay attention to the house cusp that is ruled by Taurus, though, for these are the areas of life that will be most heavily impacted. Venus Direct is thought to point more towards Libra, while Venus Retrograde is thought to point more towards Taurus (hence why the Taurus ruled […]
