Venus Retrograde in your Natal Chart
As one born under Venus Retrograde, you will be no stranger to conflicts as you are consciously and even painfully aware of those that go on around you. You are able to see the best and worst in people, often becoming keen and shrewd observers of humanity. As opposed to those with Venus Direct in their charts, your aesthetic sense of taste aren’t dependent on the opinions of those around you. At an early age, you learned to tear down the veil of illusion that romantic fantasy offers and tend to be more realistic in outlook.
However, there is the real possibility of putting off partnerships or marriage till at a much later age or after several failed relationships. There is the conflicting fear of being too independent or too accommodating as you instinctively fear ending up alone or being taken advantage of.
Venus Retrograde in Transit
Venus goes retrograde approximately 40-43 days once every two years. During this transitory period, betrayals (especially those involving women), severing of relationships, feuds, indiscretions and even public scandal are commonplace.
In general, conflicts pertaining to all kinds of interpersonal relationships are affected to some extent. Relationships that start during this period will be stormy and generally short-lived, as people are clouded by the veil of romantic illusion under Venus’ influence.
In a Forecasted Chart
While Venus is retrograde you may feel confused about what to do with love, money or anything of beauty. Love might seem to slow down, you’ll probably dress less “sexy” or less organized, and general asthetics (things pleasing to the eye) will be softened or muted.
