Before that was more focused on releasing the old, and after that the second half of Venus retrograde cycle invites us to allow and integrate Venusian experiences, in a self-reliant way, from within.
It is a time to allow ourselves to feel, to live with the senses : seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching… And feel all the sensations which are within. Integrate our feeling capacity, without over-intellectualizing it, and without over-attaching it on the outer objects and other people.
This doesn’t mean to shut out the world, but to go and experience it, and whatever feeling arises, to fully be aware of it, and whatever longing pleasure or happiness we have, to become it, to dive into it until the experience of happiness is integrated within, and no more over-dependant on external objects. Then we can radiate it in every aspect of our lives.
So for example, taste a strawberry, and be aware of the taste and how it makes you feel. And then remember the feeling without tasting any strawberry, integrate and internalize the good energy of it, then it becomes a part of you. And we can do this for any experience, feeling for somebody, feeling of a music, etc.
