Venus went retrograde on October 6, 2018, and will go direct again on November, 16.

Hey, I’m a bit late to the party with my Venus retrograde tarot spread, but there is still time to explore how this planetary movement may affect you.

In the Tarot, Venus is linked to the Empress and all the other cards you see on the image above.

This means that Venus retrograde can affect your self-care, love life and money issues.

Venus is all about love, beauty, creativity and abundance. When it’s retrograde, we just need to pay more attention to those issues.

Imagine the cards above (especially the Empress) reversed; that’s what the energy of Venus Retrograde can be like.

Here are a few things you may want to avoid during Venus retrograde:



  • Major changes to your looks, like a new hair cut, hair colour or tatoo. You might regret it later.
  • A tendency to neglect your wellbeing, perhaps due to demands at work, home or self-imposed stress.
  • Extravagant purchases, which could leave you in debt, or spontaneous purchases, where you realise later that you don’t need these things.
  • Committing to a relationship. There may be a change of heart when Venus goes direct again.

So, to look at your personal DOs and DON’Ts, try this Venus Retrograde tarot spread by just using the Venus cards in the Tarot:

1. Reflect on…
2. Embrace…
3. Avoid…
4. Create…
5. Learn (from)…
6. See the beauty in…
7. Find abundance in…

You can also do a second reading using all the cards of your deck.

I’d love to hear how this spread works for you.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane
