Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
After Venus starts to retrograde, do not ask your spouse or roommate to cut your hair—if you must do it, ask early in the month, or you may panic when you see the results. If you need expensive skin care creams or a new skin care program, again, order it right away, not later in the month.
In addition to Venus, Mars will retrograde later in the year for the first time in two years. Mars’ impending retrograde (September 9 to November 13) also concerned me, for you need a strong Mars when you do anything you consider to be competitive. If you want to introduce a new product and you want it to be highly popular and hit all kinds of high sales records, you should never do it with Mars retrograde. (Mars also rules sex, so if you marry during Mars retrograde, it’s not great for the future of your sex life together either. That’s all I will say.)
Mars retrograde in September through the first half of November is when many companies introduce new products or services for the holiday season. This year, I say introduce your new product in December or better yet, January.
Not only will Venus and Mercury retrograde this season (May and June respectively), but this month we have a cascade of other planets going retrograde, too.
Pluto went retrograde April 25 and will go direct on October 4.
Saturn will go retrograde May 10 and will go direct September 28.
Jupiter, your ancient ruler, will go retrograde on May 14 and go direct September 12.
As said earlier, you would feel the movements of Venus and Mercury more than that of Pluto, Saturn, or Jupiter, but Jupiter may be the exception. Before Neptune was discovered, Jupiter was your ruler, and today, astrologers still look at both Jupiter and Neptune to make predictions for you.
