Venus only goes retrograde about once every eighteen months in comparison to Mercury,
which retrogrades 3 times a year. People who were born with a Venus retrograde in their chart will find this a wonderful period!
Very creative, imaginative, and a lot of forward movement on projects and passions that are close to their heart will occur.
This is a time for you to look at your relationships. It can be with co-workers, your
boss, your best friend, your associates, your children and your spouse. As Venus rules what we really love, there may be fights,
backbiting and anger. If it's possible, try to take a compassionate stance.
When Venus goes retrograde, we really find out who is loyal to us. People may well disappoint
you during this time frame. This is not a good time to buy luxurious items or 'pretty' things including cars. You might take
them home but might regret on it later. The car will disappoint you after you've put the down payment on it.
Gifts bought under a Venus going retrograde--the recipient may not like what you have
bought for them.
With this Venus retrograde, there are chances of getting cheated, deceived or in some
way not getting the 'real goods'. You will discover this when Venus goes direct. This is not a right time for cosmetic or
optional surgery because you will not like the outcome of the surgery. Venus rules the veins of our body. This is not a good
time to go for surgery because besides scarring problems, there is a threat of a blood clot as well.
When Venus is retrograde
it is never a good idea to begin dating someone new. The ability to express feelings in the context of relationship is just
way too compromised and you already have three strikes against you. It is very favorable however for rekindling a romance
with an ex so if this happens over the next few weeks you have a green light to get back together!
Most of us have a craving for chocolates, cakes and sweets more than usual--especially
those of us who are getting affected by the retrograde degree-wise with our natal chart and another planet is involved.
This is a time when one becomes overconfident
in matters related to money and tends to buy an expensive item he cannot afford on his paycheck. This is not a good time to
splash out hard earned money. Hold on to it.
