*Mega Mystic Members – Ask Mystic Your Venus Retro Questions

Filed in ASTROLOGY

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.

I’m a bit late to the show since there’s been a lot of moving parts for the past couple of months. I’ll ask anyway. My question is around new job and relocating! I’m a Taurus Sun (9th house), Scorpio Moon (3rd house), and Virgo Rising. Oh yeah lots of transformation in store for me. The move to SF is happening during the Venus Rx (7th house). I’m moving and the end of Oct when my lease is done. I really hope this move I am doing (literally and figuratively) is a good one? Venus Rx don’t is around our beauty… Read more »

I have been thinking about altering my image with laser hair removal for some months & have first treatment booked in this week- Venus in shadow zone.. is this ok? Thought if I start it BEFORE retrograde would be best? It will be a reinvention of sorts and stripping back (or removal lol). Yay or nay?

Damn I get my hair done almost every month now and I’ve noticed every time I’ve had it done during Venus Retro something goes wrong (the color is off, severe heat damage, bangs were wrong, etc). I’m guessing I should wait till mid November, huh?

Since Venus Retrograde I have dreamt about 2 exboyfriends. In both I felt like that girl cat in Pepe LA Pui trying to get away. This feeling is also currently linked in with people telling me there problems at the time I am compassionate but when I glimpse them again it feels like a drag and I do get away. Some how they get the message. That is a step forward for me

Hi Mystic
I’m quite new to your fabulous website and am still trying to navigate Astrology per se!
What is the best way for me to navigate this Venus?

Hey Mystic! What an amazing idea. I think everybody needs some help with this. I am Saggitarius and my AC is at 9° Scorpio, so it will cross back over it. On the 7th October I am embarking on a 4 week journey with my Pisces boyfriend to India (my paternal country of origin. Ive been there before and I love it). Normally I wouldn’t plan a trip like this during a retrograde, but with all these retrogrades going on its not like we have much choice. But I keep wondering, was this a bad idea? Thanks a lot! Xxx

Soooooo, Venus darling goes retro in my 4th-3rd house and will conjuct both Saturn at 1 degree of Scorpio, and Pluto at 29 degrees of Libra… AND will oppose my Sun at 2 degrees of Taurus in the 10th house.
Tell me what to expect Mystic chérie.

Ay, i get confused with time difference and i hope im not too late to throw in a question 🙂 Leo sun, and Cancer Venus here, Venus will be going retro over my saturn and pluto in scorpio and will be opposing my NN in taurus. My “significant ohter” is a cancer sun, libra rising- and i guess i am wonderung whether this transit has the potential to push us SOMEWHERE.

Hi Mystic,

And thank you for your generosity in answering all these Venus retro questions!… it’s been a great thread to follow.

Soooo…this goes retro in my tenth house, and goes direct on my Pluto (opposite my Aries sun). The Mars retro was just in my second house, fyi, and I left a promotion and raise on the table in favor of my health and happiness to start a new job, so this one has me a little apprehensive…any tips to navigate this successfully?

Ooops…just realized I’m getting a new tattoo during this ;/
Appointment is on the 8th, but I scheduled it before the summer started, and the imagery and location have been rolling along in my mind for a long time…does that make it better?

Venus goes Rx exact on my 10º 5H natal Venus (in a stellium with Pluto and Mercury), then turns direct exact on my natal 5H 25º Sun.

I’m freshly single from a long term relationship, in a new apartment, wardrobe/possessions purged, feeling reborn but not seeking anything un-genuine or energy-sapping. What could I expect with this retrograde hitting such direct points, and how should I strategize? I feel in powerful and comfy limbo/shock and am not exactly sure what to manifest.

I am a Leo Sun with Venus in Virgo (either 12th or 1st house as unsure of exact time of birth). I understand I’m not meant to paint any walls or buy new items to redecorate with but my house is a wreck and I really want to do something (unfortunately I have no time to do it in September when it would be astrologically ideal). So would it be ok to do all of the things I’ve been putting off and meaning to do for a year, like re-grout the bathroom tiles, hang mirrors and art that’s already been… Read more »

I know this wasn’t your goal here, sunsagscorpasc, but I want to thank you because I am going through a similar longing situation (where I’ve worked diligently on distancing myself, evolving the new, cherishing the space to just be myself et al), and it gets pretty discouraging to see how long it can take to get over one person who you know full well would just continue to enmire you in the fallout of your own toxic reactions. I’ve seriously been wondering if I’m the only person with such counterproductively-oriented heart and soul-longings (cuz yeah, I got a good handle… Read more »

In the composite with this guy we had four planets in Scorp and all those would have been zapped up by Jupiter this past year… I look at it as shedding light on VERY deep shadows… but yeah, enough is enough, right? Thank you for your sharing and support too.

So this is all in my huge empty 7th Currently away from home working in a bizarre new environment with a new bloke, meeting dozens of new chaps too, being openly propositioned daily mostly by guys half my age (fab) and wondering how this will pan out?? Transiting Venus will oppose my Saturn Chiron briefly and m as with my 3/4/5 houses I suppose so lots of tribe to sun jup moon mars Venus ? How does this bode for a change of course in my life on all fronts ?

It’s what i would have done if i was really an artist with unlimited budget for supplies, and taught how to frame, use glue and an acrylic substances. So want to buy a piece of each work or better still, do a work exchange, barteree a deal. Promote them. Idea! Take photos of course, doh, always forget the iPhone has camera.

Hi Mystic,

Me Taurus Moon woman, no love questions. But another question.

Already feeling really grounded and chilled ( could be because really upsetting neighbor is away _ big weight lifted off my shoulder’s).

Anyway I digress, What should I focus on during this Venus retro and how long does it last. Mainly on the theme of selfcare, nurturing and consolidation.

Any past stories or books you recommend?

Oh and what’s my super power please,? Gemini Sun, Taurus Moon, Pisces rising.

Thanks Mystic Medusa

Greetings, Mystic Medusa,

In your Astro-Hacks post, “The Official Soulmate Indicators”,  i had noticed in the past that you didn’t mention when people meet during Venus Retrograde or during her Shadow phase leading up to her Retrograde… i have read in some astrology articles that this is a prime indicator for soulmate connections. The only caveat is: to wait until after the shadow phase to see if the connection “sticks”, so to speak. i would love your feedback on this! Happy Friday (Venus Day) to you! 🙂

My Libra best friend (whom I had a secret crush on for the last 7 years) and I got together in the sack 3 times. First in July 7, then on the 12th (Eclipse in Aquarius) and then on August 9th (a couple of days before the Leo eclipse). This all happened during Mercury Rx-Mars Rx-Eclipse season I decided to spill the beans and confess my feelings. He is now in lock down mode and the friendship dynamic has gone to the trash. I was also born with Venus Rx in Virgo. This has seem to be the theme of… Read more »

First: remember you are a Leo. Leo don’t wait around for Libra (or anyone else).
Find (or re-find) something you love yourself doing and do that.
I would not expect Venus Retro to be solving things but if he’s a Libra and because Venus will be retro in Scorp and Libra I would hold any action on my side (a double Leo can rarely benefit from a Venus Retro square from Scorp) and see if Venus Retro in Libra stirs something from his side.

Well, I remember THAT Venus retro of 2010 – I fell in love with an Aries & made confrontational naked performance art with him! This time around I’m trying to heal my love & sex life, which hasn’t recovered from an abusive relationship two years ago. This retro will go over my natal Pluto at 6 Scorpio & oppose my Venus in Taurus/ MC conjunction at 7 & 6 Taurus. My question is, will this be a good time for me to heal myself emotionally & physically, open up to my own capacity for abundance & joy, & start being… Read more »

I think knowing ya transits does help but you’ve gotta be on the ball. Sometimes knowing about it won’t mean you’ll handle it well. My meltdown of the past few daze has been the culmination of Mars, Lilith and Pluto all broadly opp my Sun. With Mars turning Stationary Direct, in my 7H, opp my 1H Sun. And as Skarab pointed out that the SN, in Retrograde, is butting conjunct over my Aqua Moon. I hadn’t factored that in even tho l have a good handle on how to read a chart.

The whole passage is in my 5th house. It goes retro right on top of my Neptune, and turns forward again on top of my mars/mercury conjunctuon. I don’t know if I can deal with any more disappointment, or with any more delusion. Or maybe I’m just not strong enough, like I can’t get myself to keep trying unless I get some kind of sign. I’m a writer. Sun zero Libra. Asc 26 twins. How can I get some GOOD out of this? I feel guilty asking a question that’s just about me.

Neither of us has a lot of control over how much we actual work at respective workplaces as we are both part-time/casual.

Got all my shopping and haircuts out of the way before the shadow…so hopefully I won’t look like shit….

However this is definitely going to be some kind of psychic reckoning as Venus crosses my Sun/Pluto/Mercury then retrogrades back over them in the 12th! My dream world is always crazy relevant but what should I be looking to it for during the retro?

I have to say I am quite fond of a Venus Retrograde. But the timing of this next one has me a little nervous, especially since I have Pluto, Saturn and my Moon on the Via Combusta in my 8th and 9th Houses. At the beginning of the Retrograde of March/April 2017 I moved countries from the one of my birth and upbringing to that which I consider my ancestral and heart home. My partner of 14yrs and I broke up, after remaining in a stagnant scenario for years too long. Towards the end of the Retro I went on… Read more »

any particular insight/counsel for the Venus-ruled? (Asc at 29 Libra, and NN at 0 Scorpio hahahaha. Venus in the 4H)

And I guess I do have an attraction simmering a bit – first time in a very long time – with someone I met briefly who lives a few hours away, logistically tricky. It’s remained on the level of sparky but quite personal conversation. Seems we’re both being careful (I am anyway) – open this door or no..

Dear Mystic,
I’m wondering if Venus retro has any bearing on exploring new career directions via study?
Could upskilling and treating oneself to an educational workshop be a type of self care/beautification ritual?
I’m a horticulturalist and was about to book in for an interstate workshop in Therapeutic Horticulture (think Art Therapy but with plants, soil, & sunshine) in a couple of weeks time.
Venus is transiting my 9th house.
I’m Pisces Sun, Aqua Rising, and Aries Moon.

Warm regards and many thanks.

I know you’re asking Mystic, but I just wanted to jump in & say heck yeah! Go for it! Venus can also rule art & skill & I’d say horticulture definitely fits, plus the 9th is about education (as I’m sure you know) 🙂

Wow! Looks like you have a lot of questions so I’ll keep this brief and to the point. (Not sure if it matters, but I’m a Leo sun and moon with Cap rising)

1 – Is Venus retrograde and/or shadow retrograde a bad time to begin a new romantic relationship if one should happen to come along? How about if it’s with a former love?
2 – Is the Venus retro period a bad time to have a cosmetic procedure done?

Thanks so much for your answers!

I met the love of my life in October 2010. We parted after a couple years, but I haven’t loved that way since, and sometimes wonder if I ever will. After a few years of nothing much romantic materialising, I’ve recently met someone and things are moving pretty quickly. So I suppose my question is, are things aligning for another soul-explosion Big Love, or should I put the brakes on things a bit? Is Venus Retro a bad time to start something new?? Thank you!!
