Yes, it’s that time again! Venus, the planet of love and harmony will go retrograde tomorrow March 6th through April 17th. It’s one of those 40 days and 40 nights things, that I think has some strange reference to the Bible, but can’t quite remember exactly what (and I went to an Episcopal school for 1st through 12th grade so you’d think I’d remember). Whatever the case, the shadow for this retrograde period started February 1st and it ends May 20th, so as you can see this Venus retrograde will give us all plenty of time to reflect on how well or poorly as the case may be for me, our love lives are going.
In my case, my love life has gone so spectacularly badly since the start of February that I’m going on the lam to Mexico tomorrow! I’m hoping to find some kind of reprieve from the last month and perhaps some clarity. But clarity takes more time than we all would like: you can’t just go up to the vending machine of wisdom and hit E7 to get your fix of clarity.
However, I will say that the closest thing to instant wisdom, or at least instant humor, about lost relationships is the book How To Spot A Bastard by his Star Sign. So if you’re in need of a good laugh during the next 40 days and 40 nights, pick up a copy. Of if you’re really strapped for cash, hit up the Google Books version for a taste.
I will hopefully be starting off my 1st of 40 days tomorrow sipping a margarita on the plane. I hope everyone’s start to the next 40 days is just as rewarding!
