    When Mercury retrogrades, which we are all familiar with, we experience messy conversations, faulty technology, and exes re-appearing out of nowhere. This is due to Mercury ruling day to day expression and communication — so when it appears as though it’s moving backward from our place on earth {the meaning of retrograde} things concerning correspondence go awry. And because of this challenging period, it’s wise to wait and reflect on big conversations, back-up all of our work, and take it nice and slow.

    Applying this knowledge to Venus, our sexy, chill, love planet, we can assume that matters of the heart and wallet will be under fire.
