100percent pure loveA Venus Retrograde period is on the horizon and this is one of the most important times when it comes to love matters.

Relationships matter most when Venus goes retrograde.  Venus, after all, is the planet of love and is connected to the things we love most. So if you’ve been looking for love or questioning a current relationship things will intensify for you when the planet of love starts her backwards motion on July 25, 2015.

Venus Retrograde simply means that the planet Venus will be giving the illusion of moving backwards in the Zodiac. She does this every 18 months or so and it marks a rare and very important time in all matters relating to love.

If you want to mark your calendars, take note that she’ll begin moving backwards on July 25th, 2015 (0 degrees Virgo) and complete her backwards motion on September 6th, 2015 (14 degrees Leo). It’ll be important to remember not to make any big decisions regarding love, money and beauty matters (all things Venus applies to) till the end of the Retrograde period. This is because you’ll end up seeing things much differently at the end than you did at the beginning of the period.

Karma also plays into this period and anyone you meet or come head to head with will come with a lesson. Many of us could start questioning current relationships and ultimately end up redefining them in some way. Making karmic connections with people are also possible. This is a time where you can meet someone totally unexpectedly and fall madly in love.

This is my favorite thing to think about when thinking about what kind of events may play out in people’s lives. But it’s not all fairytales during this time either; heartstrings have the tendency to be pulled and lots of questions about the love in your life can also surface unexpectedly.

If you believe in fate then this is a time where you can really see it in action. Encounters of love at first sight are very probable when Venus retrogrades – particularly when she stations and gets ready to turn forward again (beginning of September 2015). Something just ends up happening that makes you align magically with someone you’re supposed to be with when she turns. This is the kind of thing that many of us dream about and get caught up in when romanticizing about love. I’ve heard and read many stories of people meeting the love of their life during this period.

Interestingly enough, there will be an eclipse taking place shortly after Venus moves forward again. This means that many people are embarking on totally new cycles in their relationship area of life.

There are some other things to be aware of as well with Venus retrograde. It’s not the time to beautify or do any plastic surgery. Stay away from new hair dues, botox or getting that nip/tuck fix you’ve been waiting on. Things just won’t take or come out well while the planet of beauty moves back.

If you’re planning on doing anything major to yourself – beauty wise – get it done before July 25th or WAIT till September 6th!

Venus retrograde is also a time of affairs and cheating ramps up big time. People most often stray on their significant other during this period. This is a time where too many can get caught up in thinking the grass is greener when in reality it’s really not. Lots of reassement is in the works. Someone who left a relationship could suddenly want to come back.

It’ll be a hard decision to decide on whether they deserve a second chance. This is where the pull on the heart strings comes into play.

There is certainly a lot to think about when it comes to this relationship focused period. How we are working together in all relationships (love, business, platonic, family etc.) will matter most.
