Your Venus Retrograde Horoscope For Today

Venus Retrograde Horoscope

Here is your Venus Retrograde Horoscope for today, applicable to all the signs, single, pair-bonded or “it’s karmic.”

There is an old cliche saying the “penny drops” when you get a wow of an insight.

Well, Venus back into early Virgo (which she buzzed through from July 19 to 31 before retrograding into Leo) is more like a gold bullion bar dropping on your foot.

In terms of wow insight, that is. Valuable, profoundly personal or nuanced and a clanger.

Venus here is an inflection point. It is the style of moment where it seems as if nothing is happening; you may be looking in the mirror or feeding the cat when, suddenly, your mind changes in the blink of an eye.

And then everything changes.

I feel fabulous!!! Light, clear headed, centred and yet free spirited. All that Saturn due diligence must be balanced out by the Saggy joie de vivre. It’s agreeing with me.

I also have a new Aries lover. Which is most interesting since I have always thought moi and Aries just wouldn’t work. But I have to say … he’s the giver that keeps on giving. Basically has a “we don’t finish until the job is done” kind of attitude towards ermm sexy times :mrgreen:

Venus opp my sun-Saturn, and Saturn in Sagg still squaring my Venus, and goodness knows what else Saturnian/Venusian… yes, thank you, major insights and sober clarity around certain love/relationship issues. Funny how the realisation of something heavy and difficult can leave you feeling lighter and liberated.

Omg this a phucker of a transit-y moment. I haven’t felt this emotional or exposed or at a loss since I don’t know when. Its like I see everything thats wrong in my life. It is SO clear that I’m responsible for my own unhappiness and instability. I can’t see a way out. I’m crying. Alone. I mean, this is really intense and painful. I probably SHOULDN’T say that all the other comments have made me feel slightly better but you know, they kinda HAVE. At least I don’t feel so alone in this weird funk. God and it just… Read more »

I’ve been in the same place, the last two weeks especially have been very difficult and as you said it’s even harder seeing how it all comes from me and then not being able to change it at the same time. Some people fight, some people take flight, some people freeze. I am definitely a frozen person. I wrote this final Aristotle paper 3 years ago that I pulled out yesterday where I interpret his meaning of “education” to be not education as we know the word today but rather emotional conditioning. My conclusion was that Aristotle thinks that broken… Read more »

On July 22 I found that Venus is “Lord/Lady of my Geniture” (aka my “daemon”) by doing the calculations on a website called AstralTwelve at http://astraltwelve.com/lordofthegeniture

I researched Venus symbolism and found her beautiful flower-like orbit pattern. I was fascinated by how that pattern expresses, in a compact form, so many of the things associated with Venus: star, rose, heart, the Golden Mean.

Decided that if I were to ever get a tattoo, it will be the Venus orbit pattern.

ICPlutoMM Member

Sagitta, I read that “we are all born as part of a particular Venus star pattern.” In case you´re interested in reading about the Venus Synodic cycle, and what her conjunction with the Sun represents in your chart: http://mountainastrologer.com/tma/time-with-venus

SagittaMM Member

Wow, that was interesting, ICPluto! Thanks for sharing that article.

I found the VSP spot for myself and others at this handy location:
http://www.aastl.net/FindYourVenusStarPoint.pdf
(I just put it there in case others want to look it up)

I have my VSP at 28 Gemini conjunct my NN at 4 degrees, and both my children have their VSPs conjunct my NN at 1 degree! At the very least, the VSP seems to indicate the people who bring love into our lives. Another surreal aspect is that my VSP at 28 Gem is conjunct asteroid Demeter!

I just dunno.
It felt so heavy and full of despair and regret for choices made 20 years ago before the news from my dad that he is penniless and dependent on me.
I was already struggling to find hope and get up in the morning.
Now…I dunno.
really.

Does anyone else hear feel as if mercury stationed on northnode sextile saturn is seriously eerie – like time vortex – seeing backward into the future, or all at one time…a distant glimpse into next incarnations you know you have already been to? I am talking 1st / 7th house situations; past / future love…departure and connection…unexplained shifts, psychic revelations that seem impossible…I don’t know whether to think my mind is playing tricks… What about sun approaching opposition to to uranus…for me its 2nd / 8th house themes, but its dredging 5th natal venus in capricorn, which is almost conjunct… Read more »

Hi Invicta Sorry about your father’s misfortune. I just don’t know what you can do, as you may benefit from being united, but only if it serves your growth. My Dad is always absent. And clandestine, so I suppose I think that part of me will always be unresolved… I personally think the saturn sqaure of sagittarius versus pisces neptune is really tricky. There would be illusions, paths that are not what they seem. You’d have to be so clear in what you hoped to achieve to know it was worthwhile. My journey is just beginning again, and I agree… Read more »

God. I kept notes on my phone rather than my diary through that period and there is epiphany after epiphany, with July 30th being an absolute clanger for realising ‘this bastard isn’t even in the same planet as me’ after probably the most viscous argument we ever had in the 9 years we were together. I think I only stopped reeling the weekend before the eclipse two weeks ago. The whole year has been like a ‘pass the parcel’ party with each unwrapping revealing something completely unexpected. Not sure I want a repeat of that period. July 11 to July… Read more »

looking forward to this. recent first-time homeowner. *raises hand* definitely in the need-to-declutter-&-refine stage but still being lazy and selfish about some of it. i know that bit of me needs an attitude adjustment and i am pretty sure i am ready to go on some deep levels after ye psychic colonic. this venus trip will give me extra oomph, surely! attention to new details; making sure i am doing my best in this whole experience/ part of my life. my mercury is in virgo, too, so i am excited for them to meet up.

Been having emotional churning. Comments have from friends that I would have thought were planned to send me a message but for the fact that the friends do not even know each other. One message: I work too much. ( I have come so far professionally and financially in the last few years it is mind blowing. Thank you Saturn!) The other: I down date and I should have better looking men. (While one gal who said it proceeded to tell me that her good looking beau can be a real ass, and maybe a less hot “nice guy” would… Read more »

“work too much”? in relation to whom? why? are you missing friends’ weddings, birthdays? or are you in fact going bald and sleepless from the stress and maybe they have a point? or is other person just a bit insecure or thoughtless. only you can decide hmmmmmmmmmmm re the “down date” comment. down dating is not about looks. it’s about whether you’re on the same level as the other person – emotionally, socially intellectually, the care with which you speak to each other, whatever. not about his hair gel or whatever. unless you’re in fashion I guess. if it was… Read more »

Started Venus in Virgo with a courier delivering the Strange Invisible Perfume from the Gemini competition at some hideous morning hour! Sooooo worth the early wakeup. I have been told it smells like the scent my great grandmother used. I find it smells very different through the day depending on my mood/my thoughts/ my temperature/the wind. MAJOR cat attractant. I feel like the psychological effect of wearing this is going to be cumulative and will help me to integrate my shadow a lot better. Venus in Leo was pretty amazing. Some raging fights with the piscean, faced the possibility of… Read more »

Venus in Leo was awesome. Travel became effortless and had the best effing weekend I’d had in years! Jupiter was in really good aspect to my Ascendant and had the Sun in the first house. Good times!

Venus went over my Mars this morn at 11:00, Mars is will be over my Venus tonight. That is so freakish. Venus also trining my Saturn, sextiling my ASC and Neptune. The Moon is going over my Mars Pluto and Venus all today and tonight before 11:00, as well as trining my Saturn and sextiling my ASC and Neptune. Olga Kurylenko should be ringing me for a date. But I feel like I am Ned Nederlander drinking sand instead. I wished I could know how to use the Astro better. If you write something, don’t give me saccharine BS, smack… Read more »

You have saturn on the dc?

JokermanMM Member

Yes, at 8°53′. I will read up on it again.

JokermanMM Member

Yes fuqn Saturn in fuqn Capricorn.

JokermanMM Member
Jokerman

Yes at 2° Capricorn, 6° before exact conjunction with the Dsc(8°53′). Seems like a heavy placement, Saturn at home in Cap & opp my Moon Asc. Only Neptune is closer to an Angle (IC on 29° Libra / NepScorp 4°). Didnt understand what lve read so far. I think Saturn on the Dsc in Cap is heavy placement. Intuitively l feel its why lve never liked dumb things like convertibles and stuff procured for no practical reason; apart fr my Venus n Mars in Virgo. Not sure about it re relationship stuff l read.
Enlightenment accepted…

PiMM Member
Pi

i’d almost go with saturn in 6th house rather than on Dsc although i guess 6 degrees away, it’s applying. saturn in 6th might probably make you pretty sensitive to virgo-style lessons. lucky for you you’re practically a virgo already. Personal health, order & method you know the deal…. do you? perhaps it creates a bit of overkill? capricorn can send things into hard-on-self overdrive. consider the energy for at least a thought ‘remedy’? the opposite….: 12th house, kataka.
just some amateur thoughts.

JokermanMM Member

Thanx, Pi. Ive been at this for the best part of 5hrs. I sleep on it.

Pi, it seems l have much to learn. But l need a breather from it atm. And getting a dog and or a motor bike is no substitute for a partner.

Thanx for your input too, AS

There’s a hard aspect between venus and saturn…Its staring at you, all of us, everyone…Perhaps earlier it was even more intense wit the moon passing over venus, to mars…From my point of view this feels brutal, for my chart, what I must endure. Look introspectively at how the first aspect, square impacts. (For me it is impacting my ascendant conjunct jupiter 12th virgo at 2 degrees, opposite mercury pisces retrograde at 1 degree. Not going to even bore anyone further with my situation… Some circumstances appear as an impasse – then we must change inside how we allow all that… Read more »

If you asked me few months ago how l’d felt about having such a “double transiting conjunction” (Venus over Mars n Mars over Venus) as this l wooda said “fab”. Like who wouldn’t want those 2 pinging each other? But Saturn playing against the Venus, Moon, Asc & Neptune seems to be the fly in the ointment. I can eat. I cant sleep. I cant drink enough water to maintain my tears. I just had my 3rd NN return and it feels like my 1st. Im living JD Souther’s biggest hit. I will spend 6hrs rereading Saturn stuff. Release thru… Read more »

OK you have empathy as I have similar challenge…but different houses, themes. Transiting neptune yes I agree in pisces opposite early virgo planets is hard…its interfering with my 12th / 7th houses, retrograde too. Maybe consider that revisiting sometimes unlocking clues, ideas. I have uranus in virgo near that north node point I think you mention – 28-29 degrees, so that is why I have the uncomfortable instinctive realisations I currently do…OK, thank you for highlighting this. Sorry that your NN return is hard. I have chiron return happening – except its reversing (7th) then it will return to where… Read more »

Thanx for that. Im a kinesthetic learner. Very hard for me to understand a chart without a diagram. But it sounds analogous/similar to mine. That Sat (5H) sq my Virgo trio is yucky adding to the Nep (8H) opposition as well as Kat stuff being opposed by Pluto in the 7H. Plus Saturn and Moon and/or Neptune in major aspect seem difficult even if trine; in my limited understanding. The recent dredge up (family of origin abuse) has had me realising how much it has shaped me & it has been revealed to me, via the astro (T-square between Sun… Read more »

Yes I already see this in the houses you mention. I suppose you have been trying to figure it all out for many periods of time. I have been through similar, but I read lots of literature. Thomas Moore is wonderful, full of possibility, release (breaking of pattern), as Pi recommended Intimacy and Solitude is a vital read too. I also read myths, and tales for working through upset. I just borrowed from someone Donna Cunningham’s healing pluto problems; it deals specifilcaly with these matters. There is another person Jeoffrey Wolf Green, who writes well of pluto, sex and healing.… Read more »

PiMM Member

ok pisces opinion. you say this: “The recent dredge up (family of origin abuse) has had me realising how much it has shaped me & it has been revealed to me, via the astro … some issues that have haunted me.” I believe that this is not likely to be something that a saturn-type-response alone can heal. Other than, for example, you booking a therapist appointment(s) or gathering the resolve to face the how this is materially affecting your life. Then acting to change /restructure how you will respond to the same situations given your latest understanding of your brain-heartmachine.… Read more »

Aint no mates for 500kms. I gotta kombi and cds. I go for a drive to Canberra; thats only 400kms away.

I really dont know how to deal with my Katakan neediness and my Scorpionic intensity. In the recent fortnight school holidays my Mars in Virgo/Sat in Cap powered me thru the work of three men and all l could think of was having a partner. Im chronic and severe. I had an offer of casual sex but that is just getting ya dick wet; thats all.

JokermanMM Member

Hey too.
It seems like my physical isolation mirrors my social n emotional isolation. School demographics are basically 2 groups. 1: MwC & 2: Single women under 30. Both groups socially clunky for me. And the Toro femme situ which l fuqd up bcos of my Kat neediness, that pings my Scorp Jup/Nep placements and plus my Scorp intensity (MarsPlut conjunct + a Fixed Water chart tone). Apart fr her Nep opposing her Sun Venus conjunct.

Everythings feels like lm scrambling up a steep sand bunker. Futile.

PiMM Member
Pi

I relate to your isolation in certain ways. I don’t know how to get around the partner thing. In my case I realised that I had other pressing priorities, and cupid would still come and stab me with a blunt rusty knife but I was not in a position to act. Nor was the man I was interested in *available* to act. Then again everyone has different life stages happening. So you’re probably free to get involved. Might be a crazy question but if social life & options suck so much wherever you are, have you considered changing where you… Read more »

That is what I meant to offer is that, we learn to accept, what, whoever is comes before us…we shape ourselves too…in this time “partnership” is not there in the obvious way, but the themes, lessons always continue…I did not get a choice…The person who “entered” me just did, and I have to choose how I manage that…

What an eventful evening. Earlier I felt like bashing my head in with “what is the point” thoughts, so I put on some mascara and went out. Amazing things happened, but I don’t know if it’s a good amazing or “be careful wtf watch out what are you doing” sort of thing.
