Beauty, esthetics, style, these are Venus-ruled areas. Whenever Venus retrogrades there’s talk of makeovers, hair and whether or not it’s a good time to do anything regarding appearance. I hear a lot of fear-based talk. Any planetary retrograde period is a ripe energy for “re-ing,” rethinking, researching, readdressing, remaking. Venus is no different.
I’ve heard fear of a beauty disaster putting people off getting their hair done. But they really want their hair done. Clearly it’s a time where they’re reassessing their esthetic and seeing a need for something different. That’s very Venus retro. Heck, have you gotten your hair cut before? Go get it cut again! Venus Retro. The fear I hear voiced is overblown. Use good sense, just like any time you’re busting a beauty move, and your chances for success are good. You can make a beauty mistake by not keeping up your appearance and getting your regular maintenance.
I do hair. I’m a cosmetologist. I think I do good hair in general, not just when Venus is direct. When Venus is retrograde I’ve done things like rethink the way I cut certain styles. I’ve actually figured out new techniques that people rave about during these periods. Why? Because I’m rethinking the ways I can achieve the esthetics I desire.
The best thing you can do for your look and your hairstyle is exercise good judgement. Sure it’s not a good time to walk into Mastercuts and say, “I’m feeling bold today; surprise me.” You know what? That is ALWAYS a bad idea.
