It is no secret that Ariana has been through it these past few months. Her relationship with Pete (whats his last name?) was followed closely by the media from start to finish and after Pete made light of their split on SNL two weekends ago everyone was thirsty for Ariana's response.
Initially, I thought her, "thank u, next' tweets were shady - and I was all for it.
As much as I love pop divas for there sass, Ariana has got something else going on. She is so in sync with the universe. Not only were her Instagram stories after her break up inspiring; acknowledging her sadness, anxieties, and opportunities to grow, her new single "thank u, next" tells all of her listeners her method for getting over heartbreak. And it's EXACTLY what this Venus Retrograde has been asking us all to do. So if you weren't getting anywhere working through your love life yourself, Ari is telling you what's up.
Venus Retrograde began October 5th in Scorpio (9 days before Ari and Pete split, just sayin') and will end next week, November 15th in Libra. Not gonna lie, when a planet goes through retrograde a lot could go wrong, you can get hurt and disappointed but it all depends on how we handle and perceive these disruptions that can make the retrograde a good thing.
One taught me love
One taught me patience
And one taught me pain
Now, I'm so amazing
I've loved and I've lost
But that's not what I see
So, look what I got
Look what you taught me
And for that, I say
The lesson of this Venus Rx is to acknowledge where in our life, love, and relationships we need to find balance, where we may need to make a drastic change so we can move on for the better. These things that we may need to move on from may not be so recent, you could still have to get over a breakup or some drama that happened months, even years ago. Venus retrograde brings it all back up again in some way in order for us to move through it and move on.
Spend more time with my friends
I ain't worried 'bout nothin'
Plus, I met someone else
We havin' better discussions
I know they say I move on too fast
But this one gon' last
'Cause her name is Ari
And I'm so good with that (So good with that)
"thank u, next" is just such a clear representation of Ari working through all the past relationship issues Venus Rx brought up for her and shows her getting the lesson of it all. AND its helping others realize their own growth too. Thanks Ariana for being an absolute inspiration.
Venus Rx ends in 7 days, what is your 'thank u, next'?
