Venus Retrograde

venus2You may have heard some interesting notions of why some people’s behavior is a little off due to “planets being in retrograde.” Retrograde movement has often been referred to as a period of time when planets move in an seemingly backwards motion. If the view from the Earth causes a planet to look like it has stopped, moved backwards and then forwards, wouldn’t that explain human’s abnormal behaviors? While these planetary movements directly affect one another, what does it mean when we hear a particular planet is in retrograde?

venus 4First, we must understand what prograde motion is. Prograde motion is the normative motion of a solar system, which moves counter-clockwise as viewed from the north pole-essentially eastward. When a planet is moving in prograde motion, it just means that it is doing its normal thing. All of the planets go retrograde, except the sun and the moon (even though these two aren’t really planets). Retrograde means that the planet (or body) is moving in direct opposition to the normal way it usually does, or it is moving in opposition to the body it usually rotates. For example, the moon orbits the earth and the earth orbits the sun creating a direct relationship between all three planets. However, the rest of the planets orbit the sun, and this is what causes the “backwards” motion of the planet in retrograde. In reality, the planet is not moving backwards or stopping, it is just moving slower than the earth, and this creates an optical illusion.

What This Means For Venus

venus3Venus in retrograde looks a little different than other planets, because Venus and Mercury are inside the Earth’s rotation of the Sun. (Side note: Venus is named after the Roman Goddess of Love, and is the hottest planet in our solar system. Many a stargazer has confused it with a star since it is one of the brightest things visible in the night sky.) It only goes into a retrograde motion once every two years or so; which means that Venus rounds the sun more quickly than the Earth does. It takes about 225 days for Venus to rotate around the Sun as opposed to Earth’s 365 days.

Scientists have wondered why Venus spins in an opposite direction from other planets, and various theories have become popular explanations. One theory is that the Sun’s gravitational pull on Venus’s atmosphere caused strong atmospheric tides causing friction between the core and mantle of the planet, making it flip upside down. Other studies suggest Venus never flipped, but slowed its rotation of the sun causing the axis of the planet to shift. This would make the movement from earth look like it is traveling backwards.


Venus in retrograde often reflects the personal and romantic relationships between people, as well as beautification of our souls. While Venus is in retrograde we have the ability to reflect on our internal relationship with ourselves, go deeper into our psyche, and concentrate on finding a sense of peace.

Stay tuned to find out what this means in terms for this year, 2015!

Numerology: Ruling Number 1 Compatibility Guide

Most people are curious to know if they are compatible with someone else. It can be our significant other, boss, friend or family member.

We find this out by reducing our ruling number to a single digit. Remember: our Ruling Number (aka Life Path Number) is our complete birthdate reduced to a single digit. As long as you know the person’s Ruling Number you are ready for some interesting info. There are many combinations to finding compatibility so over the next few blogs I’ll break the numbers down individually.

Our first number, of course, is 1.

We will explore number one with the rest of the numbers 2 through 9.

Leadership is key with this combination. Since you both are aggressive and both want the same things, working together in harmony is the lesson here.

1 with 2

Number 1 is the leader here and number 2 is the support. This is a winning match because you compliment each other.

1 with 3

With one’s leadership abilities and three’s ability to turn ideas into real success, these two can have an extremely fruitful relationship. If they both stay focused anything can happen.

1 with 4

Psychic Phone Readings

Even though ones are strong on leadership they are also strong on impulsiveness. Fours are cautious which can be irritating to a one.

1 with 5

Both of these people are very active and have original minds. They make a great team with the one originating the ideas and the five selling them. They have a great capacity to make a good living together.

1 with 6

People with a number six love art, beauty and the “good life”. The number one person is capable of delivering these luxuries as long as they don’t insist on having their own way all the time. A cooperative effort and this team can do great things.

1 with 7

Psychic Phone Readings

These two people can make a spiritual connection. Ones need to give sevens the space needed for privacy and thought. Sevens can help with the impulsivity of ones. Together these numbers can make a powerful team.

1 with 8

Both numbers here are aggressive and used to things going their way. They would have to cooperate or become arch rivals. They can either do great things together or bring ruin to each other.

1 with 9

This is an interesting combination. Nine people have great vision and wisdom while one people are original and inventive. Together they can make for a very successful partnership doing great things.

Numerology: Power & Master Numbers

This time we are going to talk about the three Power numbers otherwise called the Master numbers 11-22 and 33.

The Master Numbers

We do not break these numbers down to a single digit. We refer to them as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6 because they contain aspects of their single digit counterpart.


We already talked about how elevens have exceptionally high levels of intuition and spirituality. These are the people who are the guides of mankind. They guide us into lives of compassion and awareness. The eleven also has aspects of the number 2 which includes charisma and leadership. The number two is a duality of intuition and inner conflict. The negative side of this is that not many elevens live up to this great responsibility. They are shy and have a lot of nervous energy. This can give way to fear and self-doubt.

Elevens make great teachers, artistic performers and social workers.


Twenty-two is not only the most powerful of all numbers but the most successful. The number 22 encompasses the all or nothing. Twenty-two’s can become the masters of anything they are committed to or they become lazy drifters. Remember, 22 are double 11 and they have the practical aspects of 4. Four’s express themselves best in the material world. What a great combination! They possess an immense potential to achieve with intense productivity. The number twenty-two is rare occurring in a small percent of the population.

Twenty two’s make great leaders in all aspects of life, artists, diplomats and architects.


The number 33/6 is not concerned with self-advancement. It is all about doing well for mankind. This brings with it great responsibilities and leadership skills. These people are all about serving and helping the largest number of people. The down side of this is their being able to discern where, when and whom to help or they become overwhelmed. Remember, 33 combines 11 and 22 all of which are rare numbers. 33/6 also encompasses the number 6 which is about responsibility especially to others. It also represents a take charge attitude along with loyalty. There are always two sides to every number. The negative side to 33 is to become too focused on your own agenda and to care less of others. People born under 33 make great spiritual leaders, teachers and artists.
