5 Sex & Love Things to Try During Venus Retrograde

Because the Universe loves us soooooo much, Venus is in retrograde right now until September 6, 2015. Before you panic for a week like I did, here are 5 things to try in your romance life. Like birth control, pick the one that fits:

for singles:

1) CELIBACY

I hate this one as much as you do. Venus is in Leo too, so if you're feeling it then you're out attracting all sorts of mates with your siren call, you sexy mother. But trust me on this one - you want to think twice before you romp, particularly from late August until the end of retrograde on September 6. 

2) YOUR EX

This is usually as palatable as a wart on your face, but if it was truly the best relationship of your life, you've both grown as people, and/or it's always just been a case of inauspicious timing - now is the rare moment I'll suggest you give it a try.

3) NOT GOING BACK TO YOUR EX

If your on-and-off doesn't fall under one or ALL of the above 3 criteria, let it go honey. It may be hard because old flames tend to prance back into your life during retrogrades, but get yourself some Love Raid and spray those pests away.

 

for couples:

4) STAYING TOGETHER

But only if you take an honest look at the issues. They won't be hard to see right now - what normally doesn't bug you may annoy you more than ants in your fighter suit (sorry just saw Ant-Man). This period of time is a great opportunity to excavate once and for all.

for everyone:

5) A RELATIONSHIP OF ONE

The most important thing to do during Venus Rx is focus on yourself. You can never go wrong by turning inward during a retrograde. Take this opportunity to reconnect to your inner compass.

Has it been clouded over by worldly voices? Are you feeling confused or torn?

Don't rush into external action or answers right now. Instead, take all that love mojo you've got and lavish it on yourself.

What We Need to Learn From Douchebags

No More Nice Girl. Be Your Crazy Self.

After all this time, after 3 feminist movements that did more harm than good for dating (don't stone me feminazis, I was a Women's Studies major too), after all the vote-winning, doctorate-earning, business-owning and in-leaning, women are still dissatisfied, chasing after men, and wondering why they're single.

I'll tell you why.

Because you're stuck on being nice. Yes. STILL.
