I did not write this post. I have borrowed it from Cafe Astrology. They are nice people and seem to know what they are doing with their Astrology. Venus is the planet that governs love. During a Venus Retrograde you may wonder where the love went?
A Venus Retrograde is something very important to note. You do not want to get married during a retrograde, begin a new relationship during this time, as you might find, as my son did that you break up almost every month. It could be a very rock road for you and I don't mean the ice cream.
I was born during a Venus Retrograde AND a Mercury Retrograde. As a result I suffered from low self-esteem, had challenges feeling loved in my relationships as well as self love until my late 40's. For this reason, I now help others come to loving acceptance of themselves.

We may, however, be especially in touch with our deeper, less obvious, and less superficial needs and wants. This makes it a good time for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends on September 6th, and better yet, beyond the shadow phase as well (after October 9th). Our perceptions may be skewed and we can come out of the retrograde cycle with regret if we have acted hastily, as the tendency to change our minds later is strong.
We tend to suspect insincerity in others. People might appear to be more selfish, withdrawn, and self-protective. It's hard to make headway in a direct manner in our love relationships for the time being. If you are hoping to fix a relationship or if you are trying to schedule a reunion, it may not be the best time to do so.
Thank you to Cafe Astrology for their lovely post.
