This ode relates to the planet of love and values ,Venus.

Approximately every 18 months, Venus appears from earth to reverse its motion in the heavens. An astrological phenomenon known as a “retrograde”. This time around, Venus retrogrades firstly, in the sign of Aries [March 4th/5th, 2017] depending on your local time zone. A remarkable time of “me, myself and I”. Thus, straining all relationships – platonic/romantic; business/professional etc.

Venus reverses into Pisces [April 2nd/3rd] restoring much needed peace and harmony!

Venus finally resumes forward (direct) motion from April 15/16th in the peaceful sign of Pisces.

Just in time for Easter 2017 which falls on April 16/17th [sweet relief]

and eventually re-entering warrior Aries, 29th/30th April 2017.

 

Retrograde Venus

Why do you tease us?

 

Deflating, tainting Love

unlike the

Redeemer Jaysus.

 

Forty days, forty nights

Just where did our Love go?

Wrecking spicy pillow talk

Inflaming petty cat-fights.

 

Retrograde Venus

Why, won’t you appease us?

 

Where is the Love

Jupiter-Libra promised so far?

Retreated from view;

Oh, vanquished, vanishing Evening star.

 

Venusian Aries: from today, it’s America first?

Yikes! Insatiable appetite; unquenchable thirst!

 

Refrain:

Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

Was the cosmic plan to be in cahoots

with

Retrograde Jupiter in Libra’s jump-suit

 

Parading pussy hats; laced-up

Red or Dead, Doc Marten boots?

 

Refrain: Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

Retrograde Venus

Love gets fierce in warrior Aries

Alex McQ, Viv Westwood, anyone?

Slurping too many bloody Mary’s.

 

Alas, Arian pride before Venus’s detrimental fall.

How ’bout we make love; not nuclear war?

Let’s knock-down; demolish Tex-Mex walls!

 

Refrain: Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

 

Then the sweetest relief when Venus

reverses into ethereal, peaceful Pisces

restoration time; picking up the pieces

of Love’s cosmic jigsaw puzzle.

 

Love changes everything

dreamily in La La land.

 

Oh Retrograde Venus

Won’t you please reappear as Morning star

Rejoice for Love retrograded way too far!
