Venus Retrograde: What it Means When This Planet Goes Backwards
What You Can Expect in Any Venus Retrograde Overall
For a good time, call Venus because this planet shows us what kind of fun we are into since she is a celestial body that is all about pleasure.
Venus Retrogrades meaning in Transit is very different than it would be in the Natal Chart. This is because we feel these energies for a period in transit rather than an expressed energy a person is living with Natally.
In Transit get about 18 months of good vibes and fun times from Venus, so it almost feels like the party just won't end, and this is why when this planet goes Retrograde, it feels like the joy was sucked out of the air. It's not a frequent Retrograde like Mercury or the Outer planets synodic cycles, so when it hits, it comes in out of the blue and shocks you.
Venus is like the filters everyone uses for their selfies; she provides a nice pair of rose-gold-colored glasses so we can only focus on what's lovely, fun, and attractive. However, every two years, what we thought was sparkly finally un-photoshopped, and we finally see the full picture.
In other words, Venus can sometimes be like going out for a night of drinks, you meet someone, and they look hot, but once you sober up, you see what they really look like, and it sucks ass.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Venus is our beer goggles, and now that you are having a moment of sobriety, the unsightliness of your situation is in front of you. Take this as an opportunity to improve the areas of your life that need a tune-up, and move forward.
Here are some themes you can expect from the main areas of Venus Retrograde:
Your career and Money:
Personal assets, material things, and your finances need to be reviewed
The job you thought you wanted might not be what you hoped it was
If you had a dream job you always fantasized about but never went after, this could be a time that awakens that
Ideals and morals that you once held undergo an overhaul
Learning the art of respecting yourself
Can bring up feelings of inadequacy and rejection issues from your romantic life and career
Problems with self-esteem that causes you to sell yourself short come to the surface so they can be resolved
Cravings for the things you’ve always wanted
You begin to go after the aspirations you've put aside or sacrificed that would have fulfilled your soul.
It brings out suppressed creativity in an artistic way
The desire to show parts of your personality that you’ve denied comes forward because you can no longer repress them
Also, some activities you used to find enjoyable might not be as appealing to you any longer
Relationships and Social
It’s time to re-examined relationships of all kinds for their worth and value.
Reviewing why you might have rejected some but chose others in relationships of all kinds
Realizing you have settled for less in your love life
Seeing where you sacrificed your own needs to build a partner up
Fixing areas where you are needy in relationships
New unions that begin during this time don’t usually last
Seeing where you have issues with intimacy
Who or what you thought you were attracted to shifts into something practical
Past lovers and exes come back to rekindle the union or to find closure
You can become less social and need more alone time to think about where you are headed in love or socially
If you are introverted, you could become more social; extroverts tend to need more solitude
Once Venus goes direct, you might feel a sense of shame for not recognizing what was right in front of you, but please don’t be hard on yourself. You’ve just gotten the opportunity to correct these situations, so take advantage and heal your circumstances.
