Venus Retrograde in your Natal Chart
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.

What are your views?
I think there is much more to this placement than the article describes. I have it and yes had difficult family situation and pretty bad relationships. But it also made me realize of the choices I was making, because decisions = destiny. I think this placement is a gift because it gives a natural sense of how to cut through BS and the person with it has to trust that inner voice. Once I’ve learned to be happy with myself and stay true to myself, the internal turmoil ended. But yeah it took a lot of damaging friendships and relationships, both familial and romantic, to get here.
Once you stop looking for validation from others, stop feeling like you gotta validate and rescue others, and just BE YOU – life will become easy.
i read about my retrograde venus in aries & some is true, but some is not. i am now very distrusting of ppl esp. opposite sex because of their insecurities & theit taking my kindness for weakness; i rather live & die alone than to let someone walk all over me while they smile in my face & hate me to the next woman they leave me for. i feel this article sugar-coated retrograde venus too much. The way i word it is short but sweet: dont have relationships, they will not work out for the good.
This is the most accurate thing I have ever read. I knew nothing of Venusretro but after the past weeks I have had it all makes sense. 3 weeks ago I reunited with a past flame. I am in a relationship that has been bad for some time and tried to resist but it had been 10 years since we saw each other last and although physically we have changed nothing had changed about our instant attraction and need/desire to be together. I saw him for 4 nights in a row, and it was one of the most wonderful experiences I have had in a long time. He opened up to me like never before, confessed his feelings, that he thought about me over the years, wanted to have a baby with me (!!!), and I became obsessed for the three weeks following. I actually willed him to text me one day, sounds crazy I know but it happened. However, he has pulled back, he’s a cancer, so doing the crab retreat and likely embarrassed by all he told me…opened up too much. We also got together on a blue moon, which being a Cancer would have had a massive impact on him. Anyway, I feel like I’m just releasing from a spell cast by my experience with him. Everything in this post is true. It has helped me wake up and realize what has happened. It’s all about Venus retrograding, and a Dark Cupid affair. Thank you for helping me through this.
