irect on April 15 at 27 Pisces. Venus only retrogrades once every 19 months and it stays retrograde for six weeks or about 42 days.

Venus and Mars are planets of love and sex. During a Venus retrograde period you are likely to hear from or about a former lover, marriage partner or friend. New relationships can form and last during a Venus retrograde period as long as they are not impulsive or frivolous. 

Venus also rules decorating, values, money, art, and things you are attracted to. A friendship or love relationship formed during a retrograde Venus can be a reconnection from a past life or one necessary for your spiritual growth. This retrograde cycle affects Pisces, Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn the most. It is a time to reconsider and contemplate relationships, embrace new values (as you dispense with ones that don't serve you anymore), look at your financial stability and make necessary changes, and is also a great time to come up with ideas (without contracting) to redecorate your home. Below is the Venus Retrograde cycle for every sign.
