January: Venus Retrograde Rethink Money, Values and Relationships

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerWe start 2014 in the midst of Venus retrograde, which begins December 21, 2013 and lasts through January 31, 2014. This cycle is about rethinking our values, our money and even our relationship to money. It’s also about rethinking our relationships. Are they working well? If not, how can we change them or do we want to move on?

In terms of money, this cycle is a good time to review the interest rates for your loans and credit cards. Could you refinance them now with a lower rate? This is the right time to investigate that.

In a business, this is the time to also reconsider your costs and pricing. Have your costs changed? If so, does your pricing need to change? What are competitors charging for similar products? Now is the time to do that research and decide whether you need a price change for your products/ services. This is no time to introduce new products or services, unless you want to risk losing up to 40% of your prospective sales. Customers do not respond well to new products or services at this time, as they usually want to pay less than the price the company wants for it. It’s best to save your new products and services for introduction in July.
