Natal Mercury Retrograde

You see the world differently, usually through your mind. You have insecurities about what others think about you. You might have felt that your opinions are too bold or were afraid of rejection growing up. You might even overanalyze everything others say/do, sometimes misinterpreting them. This can also be true as vice versa, where you are misunderstood by others. Your early experiences may have been hazy yet vivid. You have a lot of creative talents, but you might feel inadequate to express them at first. You might have troubles starting projects/hobbies/endeavors, but once you take the first step, you are quite committed to your tasks. You might feel guilty when you feel unproductive or bored, you also spend a lot of time thinking about “where you want to go from here, what you want to do”, etc. 

You might feel happy embracing your inner child (especially in your 20s) in the form of visiting your hometown, cherishing your childhood memories, indulging in hobbies/interests/research, etc. You might have a hard time letting go of memories for the same reason. Your intellectual capabilities are often heightened due to your ever curious nature, even if you didn’t show much interest in studies during your childhood. You might sound intellectual and sometimes devoid of emotions to others, but that’s only because you try to intellectualize your thoughts & feelings. Self-doubt can be a big hindrance, but with age & maturity you can conquer your fears & insecurities. Your concentration power can also increase with age, especially when you’re working/learning about something that piques your interests.

Natal Venus Retrograde 

Your ability to express compassion and love were limited in your childhood. You might have felt unworthy of love or luxury in some way, this could easily be the opposite case too, where you felt entitled or greedy about money and favors. You might have problems in estimating your own worth and so, also that of others. You might even feel that you are not good enough, in some way, either physically or financially to live a peaceful life, so you might have poor personal boundaries in relationships which can cause huge problems. Or you might show superficial affection, stay in relationships for personal gain, etc. In both cases however, you feel you lack something or the other, so you might feel undeserving of consistency in efforts from/for others, especially in close-personal relationships. Money, luxury, and inner peace also become a focus of your life, where you will need to moderate your need or lack thereof. 

With this retrograde placement in your chart, you will need to find balance in everything you might be over-doing or neglecting, that includes your own self as well. Self-care and love become extremely important, especially in your early 20s where you might feel an overwhelming sense of imbalance in your life. So, correcting such patterns/behaviors, loving yourself enough to feel worthy of love, affection, care & comfort will be your prime focus. You might even have exceptional talents, especially in beauty, fashion, poetry, arts, politics, law, etc. that can help you access your Venusian side a lot easier and heal any self-worth issues, since with age you will develop a healthy self-esteem and hence finding the right balance both inside and outside of yourself.

Natal Mars Retrograde

You might even feel uneasy while expressing your opinions in tense situations, or you might avoid being in conflicting places altogether. You might have troubles starting new endeavors, usually due to lack of self-confidence. You might even sabotage opportunities due to fear of “being not good enough”. You are however an exceptional leader, even if at first you feel unworthy of such great responsibilities. You are also a passionate individual with a lot of ingenuity. With age & maturity you might even realize how powerful you are. You might however have to regulate your intensity, as to how much or how little effort/pressure you exert. You will need to learn patience in order to effectively implement your actions and spontaneity instead of impulsivity. You have a lot of personal charisma that others look up to. 

You will have to give yourself enough time to integrate your passions with your plans. You might also have to learn to be committed to your goals and see all projects/interests through till the end. You will need to process your desires and find the right ways to achieve them. You will also need to learn how to voice your disagreements, likewise, how to react to others’ disagreements.
