So, Venus retrograde means what? Venus is very much about the personal life, and not only about relationships, but very much about relationships and the possible harmony in relationships. But also about the personal taste, the personal values about everything connected with aesthetic and beauty. And also, let's say about the mundane pleasures of life.
Now, retrograde periods always lead more to reflection than to action. So, we have the topic of looking back, of looking back on our relationships. Maybe not all of them, but there will be some in our life that will lead to that reflection. And if you remember that at some point Saturn will be in the 13, also bringing that topic of being open to listening, and in that way looking back, it might combine to some degree.
So, Venus is not so much active on the outside, that will not work so much, it's more active on the inside in that way of reflecting. And Venus as well is mostly in the Quarter of Mutation, except for the last two Gates that will be activated during that Quarter. And you'll see the red Gates, which are the ones in which Venus is retrograde, meaning moving back and then coming through again, so staying relatively long in these Gates. And look, what Gates are these? We see the 60 and the 61.
We see the Gates that Pluto has activated, the 61 for a very long time and is now going to activate for a very long time the 60. And now, Venus passing through these Gates at this time of the year is normal, but not that it becomes retrograde, and putting emphasis on that. So, it’s a strong pressure to find your inner truth concerning your relationships, and at the same time, the experience of a limitation.

A Personal Perspective Excerpt: "Then we have a great change of topic, 63. Now if you have Gate 4, that is a great transit for you. I mean, doubt is not, how shall I say, it's not comfortable, it is making us insecure, it is skeptical questions...
So, what does the mundane New Year show us? Why should we have a look at it? I'm convinced that we can look at the BodyGraph of the mundane New Year the same way we look at the Rave Return or the Solar Return which we know from the individual analysis.
