RETROGRADE GEMINI VENUS INVITES YOU
TO TAKE A DEEP LOOK AT YOURSELF
ON TUESDAY get ready for a blast from the past when Venus does an about-face and goes Retrograde (goes "backwards" as seen from the Earth) from now until June 27th. Retrograde Venus is about re-visiting, re-working or re-vising relationships of all kinds.
Because Venus is in Gemini, the emphasis is on interpersonal communications and commerce. On the business level, Retrograde Venus prompts you to go back and re-work financial, career and job relationships.
On the personal relationships level, Retrograde Venus means you can expect to hear from "old flames" and ex-partners and people you haven't heard from in years. They'll suddenly be inviting you to "Friend" them.
But Retrograde Venus warns you that you can never go backwards in relationships, only forwards. Remember that the emphasis is on "re-working" and "re-viewing" — and that means you need to take a good, hard look at those old relationships and see whether they still have any promise for the future. You may find that you don't need to "Friend" just every old friend.
And on a Gay Spiritual level RETROGRADE GEMINI VENUS is reminding you to look into your own depths to find your GAY SPIRITUAL TWIN. Gemini is the Sign of the Twins and you will doubtless be feeling this Gemini Twins effect tugging at you stronger and stronger in coming weeks when Venus crosses the face of the Sun and when Jupiter also enters Gemini.
Venus entered Gemini on April 4th and — thanks to this Retrograde phase — Venus will remain in Gemini until August 4th. That's a whopping four months — which is especially impressive when you consider that Venus takes only eight months to go through all 12 signs. It is spending half its Venusian Year in the Sign of the Twins — this only happens once every seven or eight years — so it is a special time in your life.
RETROGRADE GEMINI VENUS invites you to look into the depths of yourself — find your Spiritual Twin. You may call this twin your "Soul," "Higher Self," "KA," "Spirit Guide" or "Guardian Angel." The terminology is unimportant. What is important is that you become aware of your Second Self.
In the Religion of Antinous, we call this the NARCISSUS PRINCIPLE, which is one of the founding principles of our religion. It is at the basis of the Spirit of Homosexuality -- Love of the Divine Self.
Most of us go through life unaware of this Other Self. We do what is expected of us. We do what we feel others want us to do. We put the perceived wants and needs of others ahead of our own. We think that it's "selfish" to put our own interests first.
But RETROGRADE GEMINI VENUS is reminding us that there is another Self -- a Spiritual Self -- without which we are not spiritually whole. For it is only by "looking out for Number 1" that we are physically, mentally and spiritually able to love ourselves. And only then can we truly love others.
RETROGRADE GEMINI VENUS invites you to take a deep and profound look at yourself, with all your strengths and all your weaknesses, all your virtues and all your faults, all your courageous achievements and all your failures. Become aware of your Spiritual Twin, so that together, as one spiritual entity, you can fulfill your destiny.
