The planet of love, marriage, luxury, romance, beauty, harmony and entertainment changed it direction and may cause a lot of mixed feelings in our souls. Venus is retrograde from 5th of October till 16th November 2018. When Venus goes retrograde this means that there will be some kind of lessons and karma that needs to be paid at this period – you will need to RE-pair what is broken, Re-think, Re-asses, Re-do, Re-store.
This period is extremely important and we all should be careful in the sphere like business partnership, marriage and relationship, love, entertainment and be careful with luxurious items like vehicles for example.
Although according to Vedic Astrology Venus is in its own sign Libra ,this means that the retrograde period will not be so critical, still that time can be quite turbulent – quarrels with your boyfriend/girlfriend, separation, many expenses, unpleasant experience that brings anxiety, problems at work -all depends on your natal chart of course and the positions of the other planets and Venus itself. if you dont know your Venus sign according to the Vedas, please click on the following link:
All retrogrades are slow, introspective, and contemplative times, but Venus retrograde involves no ordinary introspection. It’s a journey through some of the darkest shadows of your heart, and it will have you oscillating between pain and pleasure as though you’re riding a dangerous, yet exciting roller coaster ride. This energy can be heavily destructive if it isn’t given form or structure. What better a way to channel your emotions than through art, poetry, dance, and self-expression?
