Venus in Aries begins a six-week retrograde cycle today (from March 4 until April 14). Venus retrograde happens every 18 months while Venus retrograde in Aries happens once every eight years. When the planet of values and self-worth reverses direction, we enter a period of self-evaluation. Venus is the Goddess of beauty, joy and love, symbol for the divine feminine, but when retrograde, she can expose her more ‘darker side’. Venus in our natal chart represents the heights and lows that we are able to experience through our desire nature. She is important for our sense of happiness and fulfillment. A positive Venus is loving, pleasant, joyful and fulfilled. A distorted Venus can become vain, selfish, jealous and needs attention. While in Aries, there could be inner conflicts because we might feel unfulfilled or unhappy in some ways. Of course, it might have to do with our relationship dynamics, how we feel valued and loved and how we love and value others. It could affect other areas of our life, such as work, making money, social acceptance and personal appearance. We could regard this Venus cycle as an intensified self-discovery process. It can coincide with a separation from those situations, circumstances and relationships that don’t align anymore with our true values, sense of harmony and self-worth.
