Love planet Venus turns retrograde March 4th 2017, bringing you a second chance at love and happiness! And this being in Aries, things could happen pretty fast! Later, when Venus moves back into Pisces on April 3rd, a more compassionate approach is needed. Whether everything’s worked out and you’re living the dream or whether you need to let go for good, it’s time to forgive, forget and wipe the slate clean! Venus turns direct in Pisces on April 14th.
Venus retrograde wraps you in a relationship cocoon… If you’re perennially single then a whirlwind romance could suddenly take you out of yourself. And it could be with someone you normally wouldn’t look at twice! If you're inseparable from your sweetheart then this could well be a period you two spend alone. If you’re always around the same crowd, expect new friends, places and faces to come into your life. Whether you’re loving it or hating it, the next two months are going to be refreshing and give you a new perspective on love, relationships and what makes you happy.
Venus Retrograde Do’s:
- Re-asses what you spend your love, money and energy on.
- Beauty is in the eye of the beholder: reevaluate what beauty means for you!
- Retreat from meaningless social interactions.
- Reconnect with old friends / lovers and remember the good old times.
- Test the weakest links in your relationship. Thinking of taking a break? Find out how your partner will react based on their star-sign!
Venus Retrograde Don’t’s:
- It’s not a good time to start a new relationship, marry or get engaged. The same goes for a business partnership.
- It’s not a great time to spend big money or buy luxury items. Your future self won't be happy.
- It's not a good time to seek external fulfilment in superficial pleasures.
- A major wardrobe or hairstyle change is a no-no, as are cosmetic procedures!
Venus returns to full strength roughly a month after it goes direct, on May 18th.

Aries Star Sign or Aries Ascendant
Venus turns retrograde in your very own sign and that could throw your judgement and pleasure centres out of whack. You could find yourself getting off with the wrong person, buying an outfit you’ll never wear in a million years or giving yourself a short crop only to be looking for hair extensions come May. Our advice? You have an itch you cannot scratch. Desist. Take a time out from your busy social calendar to review your sense of style, reassess your attitude to relationships and review our spending.
Taurus Star Sign or Taurus Ascendant
Good bye world! Your ruler Venus turns retrograde and it’s time for you to slip quietly away. Something very important is happening. You’re re-assessing your whole outlook on life - from your very identity and appearance to your relationships, values and priorities. You need to step away from your usual day to day routine if you are to work things out without outside interference. Another reason for your disappearance could be that you’re in the grip of a secret passionate love affair with someone from your past. Come April, it will be time to reconnect with dear friends and remember the good old times.
Gemini Star Sign or Gemini Ascendant
Blast from the past! It’s time to connect with people you haven’t seen in a while. Chances are your usual gang is nowhere to be seen anyhow - either that or you’ve gone off the beaten track and facebooked mates you haven’t spoken to in a while. Love could have loads to do with this… The rekindling of an old love affair could bring you into contact with said old friends. Or it could be a creative project or hobby you used to love that prompts you to seek them out. Are you keeping it all hush hush? Whatever it is, the secret will soon be out. In April, you’ll have to reassess where this relationship or project is headed.
Cancer Star Sign or Cancer Ascendant
Whatever or whomever you love, you cannot just go through the motions, no matter how many eyes are on you! Get ready for a very public re-assessment of your priorities. Where do you see yourself in five years? Don’t rush. Desperately trying to save face could lead to the wrong decision. And this will have repercussions on where you end up living, your family and your social network. Best step back for a moment and think carefully about which direction you want to take. A very public reunion with someone from your past could open up previously closed off possibilities.
Leo Star Sign or Leo Ascendant
Get ready to go on a journey of discovery! An old holiday romance could suddenly show up on your doorstep. Or you might decide to travel to where you and your sweetheart spent your honeymoon. It could also be that legal or moral complications arise for your relationship. It’s time to re-asses things from a wider perspective. What you learn during this period is bound to have important repercussions for your career and overall life direction. Don’t sign on the dotted line - preferably not before May 20th - as you’re likely you’ll be labouring under emotional and financial confusion.
Virgo Star Sign or Virgo Ascendant
Get ready to step through the looking glass! Money matters demand your attention once more as Venus forces you to look to alternate sources to cover your bills. A cheque could be delayed or the amount of a loan, bonus or commission might not be what you expected. If you’ve been relying on others for your financial wellbeing it’s time to think more about using your own talents and resources. A period of sexual abstinence or plain loneliness might force you to reassess your priorities. April brings a reconnection with someone from your past, urging you to think more seriously about what you seek from a relationship.
Libra Star Sign or Libra Ascendant
Venus is the planet of love and beauty and also your star sign ruler. And so you’re bound to be deeply affected when Venus is out of sorts. Your partner could withdraw or become unavailable for a while. This forced period of isolation could initiate a reassessment of what you seek from a relationship. You tend to take others’ issues rather personally and could experience this as an intensely transformative period. But don’t let whatever happens reflect badly on you. It’s a chance to find out who you are quite apart from others. It’s not a good idea to seek satisfaction in external things like luxury shopping, changing hair-style or going for a cosmetic treatment. Spend some time researching your options then go for it after May 20th.
Scorpio Star Sign or Scorpio Ascendant
Hush hush office romance? Get ready to put it on the back-burner as others step in and complicate matters. Couldn’t be further from your mind? Don’t laugh. You could easily develop the hots for a work colleague now - much to your future self’s bemusement. You’re not seeing things clearly - especially in April when your heart seems under a spell. Quite apart from all this, an old working relationship could be revived. It’s time to assess what you look for in your ideal job. Creativity and personal satisfaction should rank highly come April. And the kind of partnership that can make that happen.
Sagittarius Star Sign or Sagittarius Ascendant
Get ready to rekindle an old flame! This could be a romance you discover is alive and well years later. Or it could be an old hobby or creative project that used to give you plenty of pleasure. Or your usual popularity could wane, urging you to find alternate routes to fulfilment. Whatever it is, you’ll need to change your schedule and withdraw from your normal social interactions to see it through. Reconnecting with old friends is a pleasant upside of this. Come April, you’re ready to review your home and living situation, your hopes for the future as well as who is actually on your side.
Capricorn Star Sign or Capricorn Ascendant
Things at home are not at all what they seem. You might have long spells being home alone with plenty of time to think. Or you might receive visitors you haven’t seen in a long while! Or you could suddenly decide you don’t like anything in your household and toss it all out! Don’t. This is not a good time to redecorate or sell your property and move. You could soon discover that the neighbourhood is all wrong, your career suffers and your kids complain. Stay put, or better yet, take a trip down memory lane and visit the place where you grew up, reconnect with a long lost sister or organise a school reunion.
Aquarius Star Sign or Aquarius Ascendant
The past could come knocking on your door bringing old romantic feelings to the surface. Or, you could be walking down the street from your house, turn a corner and bump into someone you haven't seen in ages! It’s exciting and you probably have loads to catch up on. It’s a good time to look up people from old haunts and neighbourhoods or take a weekend break to a place where you have spent many happy moments. If there’s a danger it’s that you invest too much of yourself whilst labouring under a misapprehension. Don’t involve your family or sign papers until May 20th, when things get clearer.
Pisces Star Sign or Pisces Ascendant
You’re pretty unrealistic at the best of times and now your financial judgment is totally off. Don’t go off buying luxury goods. If you do, keep the receipt! You’re better off paying off old debts. The good news? If money worries have been the norm, you might enter a strangely carefree space. Have all the bills gotten stuck in the post? Quite possibly! As Venus moves into your own sign in April, you’re ready to assess key aspects of your life, your relationships and even your looks. Happy reunion? This is a special time, so enjoy it. Old relationship problems resurfacing? There’s no escaping them. Work it out!
