At the start of this week, two planets will begin their new movements. The first is Venus, which brings with it the thrill of a “crush,” ending its retrograde on September 3. The second is Jupiter, the planet of luck, which begins its retrograde on September 4. This week, therefore, holds both the liberating sensation and momentum of Venus moving forward and the feeling of being drawn back into the past due to Jupiter’s backward motion.
Gemini will likely feel the influence of Venus more profoundly. In other words, as Venus ends its retrograde this week, there’s a hint of liberation in the air. Especially for those who felt life was in a standstill, there’s an anticipation of catharsis, as if the obstacles jamming up the daily gears have been removed. Venus is the planet responsible for refreshing our daily lives, almost like the mixed feelings of excitement and slight fear a child experiences when seeing the ocean for the first time.
