Venus retrograde on Leo 25: A Large Camel Crossing A Vast And Forbidding Desert
Venus is retrograde and therefore moving relatively slowly. It is on Leo 25: A LARGE CAMEL CROSSING A VAST AND FORBIDDING DESERT
Venus on this degree can show how we might reject or refuse help, even when we really need it. It can show how we push through, regardless of the personal cost. Regardless of where it gets us. Are you feeling this?
This Symbol implies the ability to be able to push ahead even in difficult times, going alone and coping even in the most difficult circumstances. It also shows someone who’s very self sufficient, or someone with a big journey to complete. You may find that your situation has been like an arduous journey, but there could still be further to go. It’s important to be confident that you have the reserves to survive and the endurance to succeed. Although you obviously would like the company and assistance of others, in the end you can really rely only on yourself. Self sufficiency and mental self-control are necessary as is a commitment to get to the other side of your issue.
Completing the journey while protecting oneself from spiritual ‘sunstroke’. Facing the tests of karma. Having to carry the load, often for others, over long distances. Stamina.
The Caution: Not preparing properly. Running out of reserves. Feeling weighed down and in danger of not finishing the objective. Big plans with no backup. Mirages.
