We are regularly delighted by one of our readers, U.K. performance poet Myke Kofi, who writes us the most stunning verses inspired by our horoscopes. Here is his latest offering for Venus retrograde—a lyrical illumination of this star-crossed planetary reversal.
From March 4-April 15, 2017, sensual Venus is traveling backward in retrograde motion, interrupting the flow of our most important ties—or even snapping us out of starry-eyed reverie. Since retrogrades rule the past, ex-lovers (and old issues) can also resurface during this six-week phase. Venus retrograde could bring a refreshing pause to the dramatic scripts of our love stories, helping us step back and regain clearer perspective and insight.
Please join us in savoring this delightful piece from Astrostyle’s officially anointed Poet Laureate—a paean to the perils and pleasures of the love planet’s backspin.
Why do you tease us?
Forty days, forty nights
Where did our Love go?
Wrecking spicy pillow talk
Inducing petty cat-fights.
Won’t you appease us?
Where is the love promised so far?
Retreated from view, oh Evening star.
Is the cosmic plan to be in cahoots
Retrograde Jupiter in Libra’s jump-suit
Parading pussy hats; laced-up
Rainbow Doc Marten boots?
Love gets fierce, warrior Aries
Vivienne Westwood, anyone?
Slurping many bloody Mary’s.
Attention! Impatient pride comes before a fall
Make love, not war. Tear down Tex-Mex walls!
Sweet relief when Venus
Reverses ethereal Pisces
Love transits La La Land
O Retrograde Venus
Puh-leaze reappear as Morning star
Rejoice for Love retrograded too far!
