Current situation : Four of Cups

Life seems to be stagnant and you are feeling unmotivated. This situation is typical for retrogrades, as well as low energy levels . Venus is retrograde until the 16th of November. The stuckedness associated with this planetary cycle may be compensated with overeating, overdrinking or other forms of excesses. This provides only a temporary relief, and in the long run will create more blockages. Due to the apathy, good opportunities and possible solutions may skip your attention.

Beware of this : The Strength

Strength in this position warns you not to pass yourself to your passions and desires. These are wonderful motivators but the retrogrades of Venus are much more about re-evaluations, re-assesment, rethinking, redoing. Instead of jumping into new projects, complete those already on run.

Focus on this: The Emperor

Bring discipline, structures in your life. Complete the unfinished tasks. Play by the rules, be consequent and persistent. Take responsibility, attain tangible results. Set your priorities, if necessary draw boundaries. Thus you will create a stable background for further growth.

Possible outcome : Four of Wands

The outcome card indicate that all these efforts will pay out later. Setting structures will enable you to create tangible results from the promising potentials. The achievements will grow out from your personal endevours and your good associations. (Don’t forget, retrograde Venus is about re-evaluating of your relationships. So this is a good time to eliminate the toxic ones from your life and keep only the healthy partnerships). Breakthroughs and pleasant surprises are to be expected.
