Expect Delays in Romance as Venus Moves Backwards

Expect Delays in Romance as Venus Moves Backwards
The love goddess planet, Venus, is currently retrograde (moving backward) through the zodiac until June 27. What does this mean for your love life? Standstills, delays ... and opportunities!

Finding new love might be particularly difficult during Venus's retrograde period, so it's best to postpone first dates until the love planet gets back on track. However, if you're getting together with someone you've known for some time, the time could be right to let love fly!

If you're trying to resolve things with a former partner, now is actually a good time to accomplish this. Venus's reverse motion naturally inspires reconnections with old flames, so take this opportunity to revisit the ghosts of relationships past -- and gain closure.

And if you're currently involved with someone, things may hit a snag as commitments outside the relationship are likely to make love a lower priority at this time. However, don't worry about it too much, since complications during a Venus retrograde period usually aren't indicative of bigger problems.

Because this Venus retrograde is occurring in Gemini -- an Air sign that's all about communication -- the importance of honest conversations is highlighted right now. Heart-to-hearts will help smooth over any misunderstandings that crop up under this influence. This is a terrific time to learn how dealing with old insecurities can be a healthy way to create new togetherness!

Venus retrograde cycles occur in eight-year intervals, so the planet's current reverse movement in Gemini reflects back to the love planet's last retrograde in this sign in May-June 2004. Look for love themes from that period to reappear now, and let them help you evolve and grow.
