How to Hack Mercury Retrograde

Venus is the planet that controls our attraction. It is longing and yearning. Venus represents material desires and aesthetic appreciation.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and where Venus is in your chart represents what you will find beautiful. Venus doesn’t bring love to you, it reminds you to love. When Venus is direct, it is external.
