Here are some examples of things that have happened to real clients of mine during Venus retrograde transits inrepparttar past.

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122364 1st house: •widow moves out of 5,000 sq ft home to downsized residence and begins to realize that house and relationship were prisons and that she is well rid of both; •elderly woman resolves long standing issue with IRS who removes lien on her house and frees up her CD.

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122365 2nd house: •husband gets self and wife new cell phone numbers after five years withrepparttar 122366 old ones (?)

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122367 3rd house: •walls close in on man as he realizes he might lose his wife, mistress and home, all inrepparttar 122368 same month!

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122369 4th house: •Consultant breaks up with woman 15 years older, moves to another city to start over with a woman 15 years younger; •heiress’ brother announces divorce, completely upsetting family power structure; •married boyfriend goes back to his wife with no explanation; •woman vacillates between declaring BK, selling house and selling heirloom family jewelry

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122370 5th house: •middle aged woman comes to terms with death of mother and estrangement from brother, releasing her own intense creativity

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122371 6th house: •obsessive love for a younger man triggers long repressed memories of tragic first love in manicurist; •boyfriend who is inrepparttar 122372 Diplomatic Corps leaves for South America for a year, triggering deep depression and abandonment issues in young girlfriend

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122373 7th house: •PhD candidate stops studies when his girlfriend is almost killed by a hit-and-run driver and hover for weeks between life and death

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122374 8th house: •husband of college professor suddenly offered opportunity for work as interpreter with a government “provider” believed to be involved in undercover work in a foreign country if he will leave with two days’ notice and without knowledge of exactly where he is going

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122375 9th house: •young housewife with 2 year old baby joins metaphysics class and finds terrific outlet for her social nature and brilliant mind

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122376 10th house: •young man has Tarot card reading, discovers reasons behind many ofrepparttar 122377 mysteries from his painful past

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122378 11th house •gifted intuitive artist attends Jonathan Edwards demonstration and has experience afterwards that convinces her she is going completely mad

Retrograde Venus throughrepparttar 122379 12th house: •elderly woman seriously considers selling her home (which is free and clear) to get really free and clear!

As you can see, many of these events have to do withrepparttar 122380 areas of life which are ruled by Venus, possessions and desires.

Another mystical thing about Venus Retrograde is thatrepparttar 122381 cycle lasts for 40 days. It is as if we all wander inrepparttar 122382 wilderness with our Christlike selves, and return with greater conviction about who we are and greater dedication to our selves and our purpose, some throughrepparttar 122383 act of denying temptation.

During this cycle,repparttar 122384 creative andrepparttar 122385 destructive are so closely interacting with one another it may be hard to tellrepparttar 122386 difference as ridiculous as this sounds. Feedback from trusted friends or a professional astrologer can help if you think you might be throwingrepparttar 122387 baby out withrepparttar 122388 bathwater.

During a retrograde cycle, you may have no idea which end is up. But byrepparttar 122389 end ofrepparttar 122390 cycle, a New Order is revealed, and order forms out of chaos. Venus retrogrades are intensely introspective and even anti-social transits that bring forth great bursts of personal creativity when complete. This isrepparttar 122391 kind of creativity which produces an art,repparttar 122392 palette of which is life itself.

Having Eyes to See

Yul Brynner, who died of lung cancer in 1985, helped reverserepparttar glamour image inrepparttar 122363 late 80s with a chilling PSA which began, “Now that I’m dead … please don’t smoke.”

If you’re wondering what this has to do with spiritual development and seeing things clearly, let me continue.

If you didn’t go throughrepparttar 122364 process of consciousness raising with cigarette smoking, here’s an example fromrepparttar 122365 21st Century. The same thing is occurring with obesity. The same long, time consuming process has begun. This time you can be a part of it, waking up slowly to what is before your very eyes.

I visited Russia this summer and people in Russia are not overweight. I really noticed it when I got back home. I have a friend from India who moved here because he wanted to be in a country where “evenrepparttar 122366 poor people are fat.”

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions inrepparttar 122367 United States. Fast food chains are being sued to hold them accountable for selling food high in fat, salt, sugar, and cholesterol content, “despite studies showing a link between consuming such foods and obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, elevated cholesterol intake, related cancers, and other health problems” and despite a recent published finding byrepparttar 122368 Surgeon General that obesity costs Americans almost as much money per year as cigarette related illnesses. John F. Banzhaf III (http://banzhaf.net) isrepparttar 122369 nationally-known professor and practitioner of public interest law who is bringing these legal actions torepparttar 122370 public forum.

The Chicago Tribune reports that suits initiated by Banzhof’s students have already forced McDonald's to apologize for "duping" people, and pay out over $12 million in damages. McDonald’s claimed their French fries were “vegetarian”. [They are fried in animal fat.]

According to ABCNEWS Internet Ventures, “a second law suit filed by a disgruntled customer in Florida, outraged when she learned that a so-called low-calorie and low-fat ice cream had at least three timesrepparttar 122371 calories and fat she was led to believe, has likewise been granted class action status by a judge, and could involve one million customers.”

Banzhof comments, “We know from tobacco litigation that initial suits have real difficulties becauserepparttar 122372 public has real problems accepting new ideas and new concepts. It took us many years to get us torepparttar 122373 point of educating juries about tobacco, so now they are [learning aboutrepparttar 122374 fast food industry].”

In one ofrepparttar 122375 finer uses ofrepparttar 122376 evolutionary nature of law, Americans are being shown -- until they can “see” for themselves --repparttar 122377 connection between junk food and poor health. We are also being shownrepparttar 122378 correlation between weight gain and disastrous health consequences which we know intuitively. Obesity, watching television and eating junk food and go together like Whoppers and SuperSizeItPlease.

Connectingrepparttar 122379 dots can help us to correct misapprehensions from childhood and seerepparttar 122380 world around us with new eyes. It is these new eyes of seeing that are bothrepparttar 122381 goal andrepparttar 122382 process of enlightenment.
