Ask me your questions about Venus Retrograde in the Comments, and i will jump in and answer – Mercury in Aries style – over the next four days. The Horoscopes and Daily Mystic will feature the impending Venusian Voodoo. But this is a more interactive way to deal with the scenario, and it could be fun!
Here are the exact dates.
Venus In Shadow Zone: September 4
Venus Retro @10° Scorpio: October 5/6
Venus Direct @25° Libra: November 16
Venus Out Of Shadow Zone: December 18
In this time there will be repeating aspects to Mars, Uranus, and Chiron.
The last two Venus Retrogrades in Scorpio were in the October and November of 2010 and 2002.
It always makes for a hyper-Goth Halloween and strong attractions. There will be more on this surreal energy in the September Horoscopes but please ask/share in the comments, and I will pop in.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that since August 23 and until December 23, Venus is also in the Via Combusta – the Fiery Way. So leaving aside all the funky money, art, dating and fashion action, there is room for kindred soul type attractions to flare up or deepen. Venus crosses this zone every year for four weeks. This will be 16 weeks.
