Astrology Update: Venus Retrograde 2017

On March 4th 2017 Venus will begin her retrograde phase by “apparently” moving backward in the sky. While this is only an illusion, the symbolic energies that underlie this cycle over the next 6-8 weeks are not. We did not have a Venus retrograde in 2016, so we are due here in 2017! A general theme for any Venus retrograde would be to recognize our own self worth and values, plus our current status with all relationships. Venus also rules the money sector, so be aware and stay neutral during this time.


During this particular retrograde, Venus will transit two different signs, Aries and Pisces. So what does this mean? Unlike our usual Mercury retrograde phases, it is not likely you will see communication breakdowns. Instead this retrograde will cover the fields of self worth, relationships of all kinds and material resources (Venus). Also we could see the rash, impulsive, selfish, independent Aries energy deciding to go its own way. Venus is pretty uncomfortable here, so just hold on for the ride and don’t let impulsiveness get the better of you! We even get pieces of the Pisces which could be expressed as getting lost in daydreams and fantasies. Especially in relationships, this energy can use the Pisces art of escapism to avoid problems that actually need addressing. Better to channel that into some inspired art work and introspection!

Relationships and Values

Generally Venus retrograde is associated with the demise of any pending relationships, especially if you’ve been on the rocky side. Just keeping the peace won’t cut it anymore, everything is exposed. It is best to stay away from any long term decisions in your major relationships during the retrograde.¬†Ultimately this energy is just surfacing true feelings while trying to heal and love in the process.¬†Although, this Aries energy could have you popping off and storming out without looking back. The headstrong internal desires will get the best of you during this time. Try not to burn any bridges, but if you’ve been planning a transition for a while this could be the time to finally shift.

Starting new relationships may be a challenge but some old ones may be kindled again. Perhaps that businessman you spoke with in Dubai finally decides its time to move forward in your affairs? Stay observant to the people you re-encounter during this time. It is also not uncommon for ex’s to enter the picture during Venus retrograde as well. Resurfacing old connections so that they may be better stitched back into the whole. Don’t allow the bottomless pit of an old relationship to suck up your energy during this time either. Grow through it and see how you both have changed for the better instead.

Here’s to a great Venus retrograde and another opportunity for growth! Observe and enjoy! I hope each of us can come to know just how important the relationship with ourselves is! Namaste!
