As our Winter becomes Spring in 2017, it will be a powerful time that will have us in the ultimate request to honor reflection.

Unlike her neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since our Idealist planet took some necessary time off. The last Venus Retrograde cycled 25 July to 06 September 2015 in the signs of Virgo and Leo.

Upon 04 March in Aries, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Venus that will conclude upon 15 April, moving back into Pisces by 02 April. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde.

What makes a Venus Retrograde different from Mercury?
All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Venus allows us to relate one on one, be compassionate, find understanding, secure our values, intake our money, enjoy our pleasures, find our beauty and cherish our peace.

Both Venus and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Venus every 18 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of.

Venus Retrograde in Aries 04 March to 02 April
It is more than fair to say Winter ends as Spring begins with quite a demonstrative calling to take heed of the earlier Aries area of life, starting at 13 degrees. Venus on a normal journey through Aries enjoys impetuous, unrestrained and easily aroused energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as she’ll be under review.

Being reflection, research and review are in order, initiating plans during retrograde for future harmony and balance are best to be avoided. The energetic pace will be inconstant and short-lived, where mental focus upon devotion to ideals will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to concentrate on the essentials equally will not be attained without difficulty.

Romantic adventure is also typically favored during Venus’s time in Aries. Whatever plans one may have to engage in it over late winter into early spring, they will find will also not work out as originally intended.

Venus Retrograde in Pisces 02 to 15 April
The final stretch of Venus’s cycle of reflection brings her to recharge what needs to be reset concerning emotion, compassion and understanding within the very last degrees of Pisces until she goes Direct at 26 degrees.

Energies will sway to becoming indiscriminate, abject and inert verses the norm of tender, devoted, yielding and peaceful. People will be compelled to re-examine the theme of self-sacrifice to better understand what is the genuine value of this very area of our lives.

How to Successfully Work with Venus Retrograde
This next cycle of review and redo from Venus is quintessential in such a universal new year as 2017 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value of Being the Light at this pivotal time in history, Venus offering her reflection from the regenerative 13 degree point at start of the zodiac in Aries back to the end at a connective 26 degree point in Pisces wheel indicates a profound and very powerful time of rebirth as well as healing and tremendous learning experiences for humanity at large.

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of the value we place upon human life and our united view of being here. Coupled with the independent path we are personally on to be a greater part of the entire whole, March and April energetically reset us from the core.

The “RE Rules” Under Venus Retrograde: What To Reflect Upon
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1. Beauty
All beauty improvements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, you hate your new hair cut, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.” Plastic surgery is a huge no-no during this cycle. Simply AVOID buying luxurious items, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.

2. Money/Finances
You’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoid any kind of luxury purchases is highly favored, as well as watching over-spending. Money investments with the intention of significantly increasing its’ value, can be complete future failures.

Venus Retrogrades essentially become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain from the seller who practically gave it away. However, the buyer may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if the purchase involves those luxurious items. Past debts may equally surface, and these should be absolutely addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect cycle to focus upon solutions requiring your research.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially brand new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

4. Your Personal Forecast
Wherever 13 degrees Aries to 26 degrees Pisces rests in your natal birth chart is the precise are of life that you’ll see an ultimate renovation going on 04 March to 15 April. Equally, potential natal planets that will aspect Venus’s Retrograde journey are important to understand to know how to make proper choices avoiding critical mistakes over this sensitive cycle. An ounce of prevention, is a sure pound of cure. And as Ben Franklin used to say, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

5. Appreciating Venus Retrograde Rewards
BE charitable with money, i.e. hold a fund-raiser for a great cause
DO scoop up any bargains! These are totally Venus Rx approved!
GIVE GRATITUDE for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what’s worth appreciating: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
ENJOY NATURAL BEAUTY by spending time outdoors.
TAKE IN ART & MUSIC Whether at a museum, gallery, performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it at this time.
REVISIT creative adventures already in existence, examine their progress and reflect upon ways to improve them.

The Approach and Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Every Retrograde passage has a “preview of coming attractions” as the planet crosses over moving forward, the exact degree point it will backtrack to called the Approach. We’ll start to notice what’s going to be in full reflection by 04 March as Venus crosses over 26 degrees Pisces on 30 January.

Every Retrograde passage has a “ironing out the retrograde wrinkles” time until the planet crosses over, moving Direct, the exact degree point is starts retrograding upon, called the Shadow. Whatever decision may have had to happen by no other choice under Venus Retrograde will have the opportunity to smooth out the fabric wrinkles through 18 May.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attaches herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the truth through lexigrams of how we can reap personal rewards.

Redefining Values, Finances & Relationships in Summer 2015

VenusRX

Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

Should the very word “retrograde” typically scare the average star follower, this is merely because they are not in full awareness of how to optimally work with any given cycle of reflection rather than fight against it. Our planet of love, harmony, and luxury hasn’t taken a real vacation since late December 2013 and January 2014 when she was evening the score in Capricorn.

For the next few weeks -25 July to 06 September- as our Sun transits in very early Virgo and the majority of Leo, Venus will be resting up once more. Even though we aren’t as warned to watch out for zaniness as we are under such inner planetary reflection as Mercury and Mars request- a Venus Retrograde brings us to a deeper sense of what we value within our lives, what’s it all really worth and how we truly relate to it all.

What To Reflect Upon Under Venus Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1.Beauty
All beauty enhancements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.”

2. Money/Finances
Curious as to why the stock market computers went “silent” for a few hours on 08 July under the current Approach to Venus Retrograde? Aside from the possibilities of computer glitches, (equally as our Messenger Mercury was precisely on the tipping point of Gemini entering Cancer to add to this occurrence) you’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoiding any kind of luxury purchase is highly favored.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Wonderful Ways To Appreciate Venus Retrograde
BE charitable with money.
WATCH over-spending.
AVOID buying luxurious items, moving money to increase its’ value, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.
DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus Rx approved!
BE GRATEFUL for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what is worthy of gratitude and appreciation: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, music performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it all at this time. The older it is, the better.
REVISIT creative adventures already in progress. Reflect upon ways to improve them.

Where To Reflect | 0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo
This is the specific area of our Zodiac Pie that will be calling for a passage of reflection and review. Collectively, this retreat within The Virgin & The Lion specifies that we take a slow, patient pace here, and dive into what these signs request when it comes to developing both our discriminating and heartfelt responses.

Reflection in Virgo | 25 July, 5:23am EDT to 31 July, 11:27am EDT
The calling for pure, controlled, service-oriented and limited affections ask for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of correction, adjustments and details striving for perfection, all you will see that needs “fixing” will be revealed as a sense of self-surrender will be present at this time.

Reflection in Leo | 31 July 11:27am EDT to 06 September, 4:29am EDT
The calling for whole-hearted, faithful, inspiring and loyal affections asks for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of drama, creativity and nobility, all you will see that seeks to be realigned and balanced will reflect the best through returning to generosity and loyalty from our heart in order to make the proper reassessments.

What About YOU during this Cycle of Reflection?
The simplicity of knowing your sun sign is a great place to start while we all take up in value-oriented review. Where are you favored to place focus, taking time in retreat- to admire, weight the pros and cons, and then eliminate what is not worth the effort any longer?

If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant, this simple key will equally apply to your natal chart’s advice for this passage. Yet, we do always advise, have a professional astrologer do the accurate math for you.

Aries: I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 25 to 31 July
I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 31 July to 06 Sept

Taurus: I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 25 to 31 July
I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 31 July to 06 Sept

Pisces: I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others 25 to 31 July
I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 31 July to 06 Sept

Take these personalized areas of the life and see where you are asked to reflect upon Venus’s backwards journey. What is no longer of value to you or seemingly “worth it” from the particular area of life that Venus Retrograde is calling for your review, is extremely favored for release and review.

Thinking in Simpleton Terms
Simplicity and making life less complicated is always favored under any retrograde cycle, so the reflective tone of it can succeed with flying colors. We will stress again to remember no matter what sign you are, any creative endeavor involving the completely brand new in the areas of beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery, etc.), tend to not go over well. Whatever already exists or remains an unfinished creative project, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them for improvement. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to a harmonious completion under this passage.

Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions for long-term success until after 06 September 2015, (but remember again Mercury goes Retrograde within days of Venus returning to Direct motion upon 17 September until the 09 October, so be extra cautious with genuine long term decisions for success.)

Venus Retrogrades become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain, (and they’ll be ever proud of them under Leo’s energy). Before any boasting roars, they also may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if it does lean to the luxurious. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus and solution seeking research.

The Approach & Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Be aware that decisions and actions made as Venus started her approach -on 21 June while going Direct from 14 degrees Leo until Retrograde motion begins 25 July- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 06 September, the shadow will prevail until 08 October when Venus returns to 0 degrees Virgo, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde.

Decisions will be rather challenged as our summer turns into autumn, as our last Mercury Retrograde of 2015 runs 17 September to 09 October, whose Approach begins 28 August. As approaches, shadows, and retrogrades all intersect and overlap, our inner planets will be practically scream from above to reflect and reassess in the appropriate areas of our lives in which they call.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attracts herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the real truth of how we can reap rewards and stay in true tune with her request to revisit how we earn, understand and relate as we return to save our lives.

Appreciate this time for reassessment where The Virgin & The Lion seek to align the details to bring matters of the heart to become more aligned with the decisions your head makes in your Zodiac Pie Dear Stars. Once 06 September comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness within your life unlike any other in quite some time.
