Venus turns retrograde on July 25th at 0 Virgo 46 and turns direct on September 6th at 14 Leo 23.
Traditionally, Venus retrograde is not the best time to marry but if you have already booked the date, don’t panic. Venus makes some lovely connections throughout the time it’s retrograde so choose your date carefully and you can still enjoy wedded bliss.
One amazing benefit of Venus’ retrograde motion is the fact that Venus makes not one but three conjunctions with Jupiter. This is lovely as Venus and Jupiter are the benefics of the heavens, the best planets which promise expansive love, happiness, blessings and gifts. Here are the all important dates and degrees of the Venus/Jupiter love party.
Venus conjunct Jupiter [21 Leo] – July 1st 2015
Venus conjunct Jupiter [28 Leo] – August 4th 2015
Venus conjunct Jupiter [15 Virgo] – October 25th 2015
If you have key planets/angles within 2 degrees of any of the above conjunctions, Venus and Jupiter together are a blessing and the dates above are perfect for a celebration or party and giving and receiving love. They promise riches and abundance.
When Venus is on go slow in the heavens, love turns inwards and it’s more a time for contemplation than out-and-out action. You may be reflecting on love, waiting for someone or making up your own mind. Take your time and go with the flow and be ready to act once Venus turns direct early September.
