When it's all said & done... The core of this chart energy is there to teach you how to love deeper & at levels you never even knew were possible. It's strange with your ruling planet (Venus) being retrograde, this truth is so much easier to see & appreciate. This chart energy allows you to express your thoughts & feelings in new & creative & inventive ways... This is when your imagination & originality can really shine through the brightest. One fact is for sure, this energy gives ultra-freedom, but you must adhere to the highest of moral & ethical (Jupiter) standards. There is no room for any "slip-ups". Towards the middle of the week, the energy shifts & can cause you to question your professional & career direction... It's like this... It's madness trying to fix something that might really not be broken... With Venus retro, this is one time when you need to put yourself first to make sure your own wants & needs are being met... All the work in the world is useless if you're left feeling empty or un-appreciated. There are times when you need to do what's in your own best interest for a while so you can continue to give your best back to others in the things you do.
