ACCORDING to astrology, Venus is considered the planet of love, money, and romantic relationships.
Every 18 months, Venus goes into retrograde and hears everything we know about it.
What is Venus retrograde?
Venus, the planet of beauty, love, and pleasure, tells us a heap of things including how we express and receive love.
When Venus is in retrograde, it means the planet shifted out of its normal routine.
For Venus, the planet usually circles the sun quicker than the Earth. However, there are times when the Earth overtakes it and puts Venus into retrograde.
Though Venus being in retrograde could look differently for every sign, it often comes down to changes happening within relationships and financial decisions.
Additionally, these changes could allow you to take time to reflect and make bigger and better decisions for your future.
Luckily, Venus only goes into retrograde every 18 months but lasts about 40 days throughout.
When is Venus retrograde in 2023?
Venus went into retrograde on July 22, 2023, and will last 44 days long.
Astrology lovers will see the imbalance return to normal on September 3.
Luckily, Venus will not be in retrograde again until March 1, 2025, during the Pisces season.
It is set to last into Aries season when it will conclude on April 12 of the same year.
