Venus Turns Direct (6/27/12)
[Aphrodite riding a swan, from a 5th century BCE drinking cup.]
VENUS TURNS DIRECT
turns direct today (6/27), ending her six week retrograde period.
However, her influence is far from over. Although facing the right way, it now sits motionless. Planets are potent when still. It appears to station around 12 days (~6/21 to 7/3). When turning direct, they build up pressure to move
things ruled by the planet forward, like one on one relationships, money
and material goods, ethics and mentors. This intensity decreases as the planet corrects not only its direction but also its speed. Venusian themes may continue
until after it crosses the degree where it first turned backwards, around
Venus is stationing direct at 7 degrees Gemini, for ~12 days. Those with planets or points in the early mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) are the most likely influenced.
