May I suggest as Venus enters its shadow at 5° Gemini on April 10 in preparation for its retrograde on May 13, that it would be a good time to have a stack of books you’d like to read during imposed down time, especially when cabin fever sets in.
With the hustle and bustle of modern life, comes the loss of the simple pleasure of losing oneself in a great book. This would be a good time to reclaim this Gemini pastime that not only entertains but expands the mind through information, learning and being exposed to thought provoking words rather than so much of the superficiality of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Our muscle mind needs a tune up. I would continue to use social media to stay connected but not as a constant 24 hour babysitter.
I’m not saying social media is bad, but Venus retrograde would really support old-fashioned books and activities more in line with evoking the past and pleasant memories. A retrograde Venus in Gemini urges a more introspective listening and communication. Take the time to really hear what others are saying in a thoughtful and more considered way.
Home schooling will be a source of keeping your educational values alive and thriving in an adjusted form, different from the normal way of schooling. Venus retrograde, if used beneficially, can help us relearn simple joys and truly understand what is of value and what isn’t in this precious life we lead.
