HOW TO CONSTRUCTIVELY USE THE VENUS RETROGRADE PERIOD
From MARCH 6 through APRIL 15 2017, the planet Venus will be retrograde. The retrograde motion of an inner planet is an apparent phenomenon as viewed from earth in which Venus appears to move backwards in the sky. Every 1 1/2 years, when Venus moves approximately 29 degrees ahead of the Sun (in the astrological ephemeris), it will begin to move backwards in the sky until it reaches a point approximately 21 to 29 degrees behind the Sun.
When Venus is retrograde, it provides lessons in evaluating the real worth and value of people and things in our life (Taurus-Libra issues). With existing relationships, this cycle produces experiences wherein it is easier to discern the relative worth and value of these people in your life.
Discrimination is more effective. You become readily aware of any problems, differences or unresolved issues.
It is NOT a time, however, to act upon any unfavorable awareness. It is purely a time of evaluation rather than direct action. As little frictions and disagreements crop up, they serve to remind you that the relationship is not perfect. Under the retrograde influence, you must assess the severity of the problem and the "cost-benefit" of the relationship. Only after Venus turns direct should you initiate any alienation if this is deemed necessary.
APRIL 8 through 15 2017: Venus Stations a square to Saturn Stationing at 27 degrees. April 17 through 22 2017 - Venus Direct square Saturn - these periods can produce sadness or disappointment in relationships. It is not good for finances.
