ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Having an extra hard time opening up, Aries? The next few weeks will have you giving the Great Wall of China a run for its money. Venus, the planet of love and luxury, hits a hard stop and heads backward in your intimate eighth house for the first four weeks and then in your seventh house of committed partnerships in the first two weeks of November. When it comes to love, trust, jealousy, possessiveness, you’re overdue for an emotional reevaluation. Cut ties where they drain you, quit texting fuck boys and girls that lead nowhere, and prepare for a fresh start around love mid-November.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) When it comes to bae, did you feel like you were on Cloud Nine until early October, Taurus? This retrograde kicks off in your seventh house of committed partnerships: It’s time reassess and reflect when it comes to your closest relationships. If you feel like you’ve been hitting a speedbump with your beloved every other day, just know that this too shall pass and that only the strong will survive. Retrograde season is here to cleanse emotional baggage, patterns, and people that no longer serve you. Prep yourself for some heavyduty emotional weightlifting, but the outcome will definitely be worth the reward.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Feeling completely off-kilter, Gemini? You’re typically a sign that thrives in chaos, but if you’ve found yourself craving a more structured routine that’s totally normal. Venus retrograde hits you in your sixth house of day-to-day activities. If you’ve been eating unhealthy, spending too much time away from the gym, and essentially become a complete and utter lazy sack, put some healthy habits in place. You’re going to have to be cutthroat along the way and part ways with some bad influences. But what growth comes without some awkward conversations?
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Exes on fleek or what, Cancer? It’s likely that even if you’ve changed your phone number a handful of times since you dated that doozy from community college, your phone is about to be blown up by a flurry of exes. You can’t really run or hide. Emotional baggage is making its way out from the closet, and you’ve got some shit to face. As tempting as it might be to take a stroll down memory lane, this transit is fleeting. And so are your ex’s feelings. Look out for emotional manipulation and use any resurfacing exes as a means to clear emotional blockages instead of hoping into bed with them.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) Is there anything more fabulous than family, Leo? Ask you on a good day and your loyal ass would respond with a resounding, “No!” But for the next few weeks, Venus backspins in your domestic fourth house. Friends and family beware: Your buttons are ready to be pushed. You typically suffer in silence with your sensitivity, but not with this transit. Anything and everything will be taken personally. Try some deep breathing before lashing out. Not everything is about you—hard to believe, though.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Word to the wise: Do not pick a fight with you during Venus Retrograde. You’ve got the gift of gab naturally, Virgo, but during this transit your words are as sharp as daggers. You might hurt a feeling or two, especially when it comes to your friends and siblings. It’s one thing to stand up for yourself and define clear boundaries, but you don’t have to trigger everyone’s emotional traumas along the way. Your words carry weight, and a little extra for the next six weeks. Think before you speak.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Never thought I’d pride you on your indecision, Libra, but if there was ever a time to not make any decisions, that’s Venus Retrograde. First, the planet of love will be stopping by in your second house of income and security. Feel like you’ve been pissing away your money? (You probably have.) Next up, she’s making her way to your sign! You might hit a crossroads with bae or hit reset. Either way, wait a few weeks before making any life-altering decisions when it comes to your relationships.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Feeling like no one gets you, Scorpio? Shocking. Retrograde is happening in your sign for the first four weeks of its transit and then making a pitstop in your 12th house of endings and closure. You’re going to be emotional, you’ll feel triggered, probably a little self-critical. Allow yourself to feel those feelings. The transit is temporary, but the emotional work you do will be longlasting and will usher you into a new era in your partnership realm.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Feeling extra suspicious, Sagittarius? Or maybe even a little extra adventurous? You might find yourself tempted to engage in an affair, or be extra curious about who bae seems to be texting in the bathroom after hours. Venus will work her way through your hazy 12th house of closure, bringing up unconscious fears and behavioral patterns that need to be addressed. There’s no better transit to use as a time to reflect and hit reset on your closest ties. Are your needs being met? Dive deep with bae and use this retrograde to discuss matters of the heart that you’ve been keeping to yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Are your friends, like, totally pissing you off, Capricorn? If you’re feeling tension in your friend group that’s all thanks to the planet of love planting herself firmly in your collaborative 11th house. It’s time for resentment to resurface—any topics that you’ve been avoiding will make their way to the forefront of conversations. It’s also time to reevaluate what you’re looking for in friendships: Are yours balanced and equal? Cut the cord where the relationship seems to be more stress-inducing than fun.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) If you’re trying to make some longterm plans but feel like you’ve been foiled at every turn, just know it’s the stars and not just you. Usually the stars have your back, but for the next six weeks, they’re going to have you questioning what direction you’re headed in and why. Retrograde is a great time for reevlauating your desires, fears and habits. Are you acting out of a place of love or fear? What’s holding you back from going for what you really want? Ask yourself some deeper questions during this transit and you might just be surprised by what answers surface.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Feeling extra flirty, Pisces? That’s all fun and games, but just remember how it feels. If anyone knows jealousy, it’s you. When the planet of love backspins in your intimate eighth house, you might find power struggles bubbling to the surface with bae. Don’t shy aware from confrontations, but rather approach them with constructive feedback. It’s never a bad idea to share you’re feelings, just be careful to not maliciously aim for any emotional triggers.
