Preparing for Venus Retrograde
Venus, the planet of beauty and self-confidence, will go retrograde this December. But don’t worry, not every planetary retrograde is meant to be bad or gloomy. In fact, Venus retrograde can even be a great thing if you know how to use it.
This year Venus retrograde will occur in Capricorn from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022. The pre-recession shadow days began on November 17, 2021, and the post-recession shadows will last until March 1, 2022. If the annual Venus starpoint (an important day for love and trust) is, it will occur on January 8, 2022.
When it comes to beauty and personal care, avoid risky moves especially during this period. It may be much better to direct your energies towards activities that make you feel better, rather than making big changes like a haircut or color change.
So how can you use the power of Venus retrograde in December according to your sign?
Bring out your inner child by trying an activity that you always wanted to do when you were little but couldn’t. The sooner you start a hobby or hobby, the easier it will be for you to heal the past and overcome some of the personal troubles you carry. It can also prevent you from being reactive when exposed to emotional triggers. Don’t forget to think positive too.
Spending time on your beauty routine can boost your creative feelings. Make your own face mask from products available in your kitchen. An organic face mask will soothe and detox your skin, leaving you glowing throughout the retro. You can also add new ideas to your beauty recipe by doing such experiments.
Focus on self-care to get away from the chaos of the outside world. Since Gemini is the symbol of communication, you have a multi-tasking nature. Now take a break from this busyness and take time for yourself and enjoy the silence.
As a water sign, taking a warm bath relaxes you. While bathing, try using some Epsom salt to cleanse your aura, a pinch of cinnamon for energy protection, and pink rose petals to boost self-love. This special bath mix will reset your energy and give you the spiritual and emotional support you need during Venus retrograde.
You may feel like you don’t get a lot of attention from your friends and family at this time, as you love to have the lights on you all the time. Instead of worrying about it, get your own round of applause by posting your achievements on social media, but don’t let the likes define you.
Pamper yourself during this time. Try a perfume, lipstick or eyeshadow that will remind you of your youth, while ’90s beauty products are popular again. One of the purposes of planetary retrogrades in astrology is to stimulate certain feelings of the past.
As a sign that always likes elegant approaches, try a manicure that reflects your soul. Feel free to add some sparkle to your nails too. This beauty move can get you compliments that will make you feel like a star.
Your self-love is deep, but there may be a few moments during retro that make you doubt your feelings. For this, write a personal motivational phrase or mantra and read what you wrote in front of the mirror every morning. The more often you repeat the affirmation or mantra, the easier it will be to raise your energy.
Retros is the time to make changes that will make your life better. Make room for your moisturizers during this planetary retrograde. Due to the change in outside air temperature, your skin becomes extremely dehydrated, so the best personal care routine for you is to moisturize your skin.
The arrival of winter doesn’t mean giving up your shine. A lively and flashy make-up can fulfill your positive energy.
As the water bearer of the zodiac, you are constantly working to make the people you care about happy. You are so interested in others that you fail to notice your tiredness. Therefore, it is very important to increase the amount of sleep you get. Go to bed early and take short naps throughout the day to restore your energy level and vitality.
Your zodiac sign represents feet. This means they will need more care during Venus retrograde. You can benefit from a massage or a small spa session at home to relieve pain. Since your feet are sensitive, taking care of them will make you very comfortable and happy.
