What have you learned about love lately?
The climate is pitch-perfect for lessons. Saturn retrograde is in the last degrees of Libra, delivering relationship karma; love scenarios dripping with deja vu, the feeling that you must get this partnership issue/goal squared away now, etc. Venus (Libra's ruler) is in information-gathering Gemini. This means multiple choice but only one right answer. A torrent of information that you must sift through. And you know that Venus in Gemini is a little bit crazy, right? She's scattered, flips back and forth between options. Making the right choice for you (single or partnered? suitor A or B? follow heart or head?) will not be obvious. That's because you'll have to put some effort into it...the more you sift through, the more dedicated you'll be to your final decision.
Venus will go retrograde (at 23 degrees Gemini) 1 degree short of a perfect trine with Saturn on May 15th. Significant? You bet. Before the confirmation comes that you are on the right track in your love-life, you'll have to fact-check and verify. If this means entanglements with ex-lovers then so be it. It's all about making sure you've absorbed the lessons. Every relationship failure, success, crush, obsession, one-night stand and flirtation has a purpose. And they're all tied up with your personal relationship karma. Wouldn't it be nice to get it squared away so you can start a sparkling fresh chapter by the time Saturn moves into Scorpio?
Find the house in your chart that Libra occupies. That's the area of your life where you need to resolve things. Find the house that Gemini occupies. That's where the prompts about unfinished relationship business will be coming from. From now until June 7th (when Venus moves into Cancer) these two areas will be hooked up, pushing past scenarios, ex-lovers and thoughts about ex-lovers into your present. Deal with them. And remember...Libra and Gemini are air signs so you can rationalize your way through this. These influences are superb for detaching yourself from heavy emotional garbage that's been weighing you down.
