As 2013 comes to a end many people find themselves in a time of reflection over what has transpired over the last 12 months. In beautiful synchronicity this year comes to a close while Venus is retrograde. When Venus is retrograde she calls us to reevaluate that which is important in our lives. This is a time to reflect on what is important in all of your relationships, what do you value most and what have you been holding onto that no longer serves you. This is a time to reevaluate your view on love, beauty and partnership. Venus will be retrograde until the end of January, don’t be surprised if people that you have lost touch with, people no longer in your life, unexpectedly make a reappearance – they may show up briefly or in a more permanent way. As it is an ideal time to reevaluate the relationships in your life it is not an ideal time to begin a new one.
