But first, let us take a brief look at what it means for a planet to go retrograde!


When a planet goes retrograde, we perceive it as moving backwards in the sky, as opposed to its normal trajectory. Venus in particular goes into its retrograde faze for about 40 to 43 days every 18 months.


Venus is the planet of beauty, romance, partnerships, and aesthetics. During its retrograde period, it is generally advised not to enter a new relationship, form legal partnerships (or sign contracts in general), make major purchases, get cosmetic surgery, or change your appearance drastically. And whilst this is general advice, each rising sign will feel the energy of Venus retrograde more predominantly in different areas of their lives.

It is advised to use this period to reflect rather than make decisions.
