Venus Retrograde 2017

The planet Venus is currently in Retrograde. When a planet does this it appears to be moving backwards across the sky. Venus Retrograde lasts from March 4th until April 15th 2017, spanning from 13 degrees Aries back to 26 degrees Pisces. After the retrograde, Venus will no longer be the "evening star" it will then emerge as the "morning Star".

Venus is the planet of love, and as it moves closer to the sun things are heating up! This occurs every 18 months for approximately 40-43 days. Venus is known as the celestial body in charge of your heart center and your gut. As a result Venus retrogrades are healing and aid in awakening your heart to a new understanding of divine love. 

Throughout one lifetime, Venus only Retrogrades in 5 signs: Gemini, Capricorn/ early Aquarius, Leo/ early Virgo, Aries, and Libra/ late Scorpio.

Taurus and Libra are particularly sensitive to Venus Retrograde. Libra represents our allies and enemies, Taurus represents our internal balance. Libra acts as bridge that generates an inter-personal energy to provide points of view not available to the individual. Taurus takes a very down-to-earth view of both the tangible and intangible things in life.

Taurus and Libra are both ruled by the planet Venus. In Greek and African mythology alike they  used Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty to represent Libra, and Venus the goddess of agriculture and vineyards to represent Taurus. Libras and Tauruses alike should pay special attention to the next 40 days impulses.
