For The Venus Retrograde Part II: 36 Faces To Do Love’s Review To

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a Venus Retrograde, and it’s been a long long time since I’ve written extensively at looking at Astrology through music. However, this potent Season of the Witch in which we’ll be dealing with Venus in Scorpio retracing steps back to Venus in Libra, it seemed high time to pull together some songs to help us descend into the darker corners of our desires before we re-emerge back into the light in about 40 Days, after 40 long long nights.

The set starts with themes that might come up with the unraveling of our various romantic threads. Is the bloom off the rose? Is there feelings of artifice? Is there calls for consistency? Do you need to break down and cry, acknowledge love ain’t really your game or face your obsessive and possibly possessive traits?

The set moves on to catharsis and symbolic death, a key theme of the sign of Scorpio. Understanding that we can only control our own fates and not those of others is essential. Venus Retrograde is a great time to get honest with all of the things you desire, whether that be your mate(s), places you are in relationship to or what you possess and earn.

From there the set shifts away to realizing that relationships always have compromises to move forward, and how to find balance and boundaries that work for all parties involved, key themes of the sign of Libra.

Of course, the set signs off with optimism and dreaming, because loving is the greatest act that we get to continue to do. This playlist is also tied into me being one of the many Astrologers available to guide you through these transformative times. Listen for songs that speak to you on this journey, journal them, chew on the lyrics that hit you between the eyes, and hopefully you’ll find comfort to guide you to your deepest desires.
