Venus retrograde in Scorpio – Oct 8th 2010 – November 18th, 2010
This is a common question. People want to know if a relationship is doomed if it begins during a period where Venus is retrograde. A lot of astrologers say this is the case but I have seen no evidence of this. If a healthy baby can be born with Venus retrograde, then why not a relationship?
There are successful people with Venus retrograde in their chart. They are successful in life and successful in love so if we can get a flesh and blood baby, high functioning with Venus retrograde in the chart, surely it does not doom LOVE.
Other astrologers stop short of saying you’re doomed. Instead they tell you the outcome of the thing won’t be known until Venus turns direct and goes beyond the point where it turned retrograde.
This is confounding to me because you aren’t going to know the outcome of a relationship with someone you just met within 3 months anyway.
Keep in mind that were dealing with energy here, which by it’s nature has endless ways it might express. That right there puts a big dent in these hard and fast rules that have no basis. For you all know, you invite you new prospect over for dinner and the cake you bake, falls. Right there’s your Venus (sugar) retrograde. If he’s smart enough to eat the fallen cake and tell you it’s delicious, you just might marry him, so there.
Look at that woman in the painting. Think she’s not going to get what she wants because a planet is Rx? Come on.
I wonder how many masterpieces have been painted or sculpted with Venus retrograde? Countless no doubt and when you consider things like this, the answer is pretty clear.
Q – Are relationships that begin with Venus retrograde, doomed?
