Charming, seductive Venus turns retrograde until June 25, interrupting the harmony in a few key connections. Over the coming six weeks, there could be friction with one of your peers, like a sibling, co-worker, close friend or neighbor. Hold your tongue, Aries, even if you can read people like a stack of paperbacks. Conflicts don’t always need to be hashed out in THAT moment. If your bond is going through growing pains, give it some breathing room. On a positive note, Venus’ backspin can bring warm-hearted reunions with friends and even a flirtatious crush. If the connection got short-circuited in the past, this could be your long-awaited second chance. Just take it slowly and don’t make any final calls until Venus turns direct late June.

Decadent Venus flips into retrograde until June 25, retreating through Gemini and your comfort-loving second house. Romantically, you may feel like tapping the brakes and giving yourself more space.

Hold back a little and give them a chance to come to you. Tension around money, deadlines and demanding assignments could intensify. Do your best to avoid blowing up at people who push your buttons or make unreasonable demands. Perhaps a bigger revolution is brewing here. Is it time to shift your professional trajectory altogether? A woman you worked with in the past could point the way to a new income stream. See the full week >
Stop before you chop! Your hair, that is, yes, even if it could be a while until salons reopen in your neck of the woods. Celestial stylist Venus turns retrograde until June 25, retreating into Gemini and your first house of image. Anything resembling an extreme makeover should be put on hold because results may not be what you hoped for. In love, you could run hot and cold. Check that simmering temper, or you could lash out at the one you love. When it comes to your exes, don’t play with fire. Meeting “as friends” could quickly heat up into a complicated entanglement. Sometimes it’s best to leave the door closed for good. See the full week >

This is an important period to step back and heal before moving forward. This rear-facing cycle can help you reach closure and forgiveness.

A five-city reunion tour might not be in the cards this spring, but as artistic Venus turns retrograde until June 25, you might get the “band” back together for some virtual bonding time. As the planet of love and creativity backspins through Gemini and your group-activity sector, old friends and creative collaborators pop up out of the woodwork. Nurturing these connections will keep you sane, especially since Venus’ reversal stirs up friction with another friend group. Single? You could feel frustrated by all the screen time and apps involved in quarantine romance, but don’t give up hope on Cupid. Focus on quality over quantity. Coupled? While it’s fine to be “experimental,” this isn’t the time to tread TOO far into uncharted waters just to keep things “interesting.” See the full week >
Love planet Venus goes rogue until June 25th, retrograding through Gemini, the long-term-planning sector of your chart. You and a partner may not see eye-to-eye about the big picture or may find yourselves suddenly struggling to support each other’s goals. Do you want the same things for the future? Pause to assess, correcting course as needed. Watch for friction with colleagues, clients and anyone in a position of power over the coming weeks. Between now and June 25, put stress management at the top of your priority list. You’ll need meditation breaks and midday yoga classes to avoid getting sucked into the insanity of the rat race—or worrying about what the future holds. On a positive note, powerful women could emerge from your past, sharing their tricks of the trade and paving the way for prosperity. See the full week >
Cupid, draw back your bow—but mind your aim, please. As amorous Venus turns retrograde until June 25, there might be some misfires. With the love planet back-spinning through Gemini and your thrill-seeking ninth house, don’t take any unnecessary risks that could complicate your life. Coupled Libras, think before you gripe at bae. Before you muse aloud about unhappy feelings, first try sorting out the REAL issue with a neutral third party. That said, Venus’ retrograde can bring some important moments of truth. Remove the rose-colored glasses and see everyone—including your exes—for who they truly are. See the full week >
You’re hot, you’re cold—and then you’re hot again. Expect frequent emotional temperature fluctuations as Venus retrogrades through Gemini and your intimate eighth house. Between now and June 25, an ex could dart back into your life, and the green-eyed monster will make regular cameos. When territorial feelings arise, examine where the possessiveness is coming from. Do you have a valid reason to be distrustful, or is the jealousy a relic of a past hurt? Use the retrograde to work on being more vulnerable instead of becoming defensive and guarded. Do everything in your power to increase the peace, like taking time-outs or booking a couples’ therapist session via Telehealth. On the bright side, the work you put into your relationships could bring some serious soul merging over the next six weeks. See the full week >
You love them, you love them not—so much confusion, Sag! Today, love planet Venus turns retrograde, retreating through Gemini and your commitment zone until June 25. During this cycle, you may have second thoughts about a key relationship or revisit an issue you thought was resolved. If you’re thrown a curveball, don’t overreact. Venus retrograde can be a healthy period to clarify disruptive patterns, take a dating hiatus OR untangle the knots with a couples’ therapist (one word: Telehealth). Pro tip: Ditch the idealism. Even the happiest, healthiest unions have moments of struggle. The key to success lies in learning to navigate disagreements and compromise lovingly. Instead of arguing to prove that your way is the right way, focus on finding win-wins. See the full week >
Welcome to the critic’s corner? Harmonious Venus turns retrograde until June 25, making waves in Gemini and your persnickety sixth house. This muddling cycle could drive up perfectionistic tendencies or send you down a “compare and despair” wormhole. Eek! Instead of believing those disempowering voices, do things to increase self-love, like showering yourself with compliments, pampering yourself regularly (can you say home spa?) and surrounding yourself with people who reflect back your strength and beauty. When it comes to wellness, be on alert for food sensitivities. Opt for gentler workouts instead of punishing boot camp apps. Even ambitious Capricorns should take advantage of one of 2020’s silver linings: more time for power naps and beauty rest. See the full week >
Passion, interrupted? Amorous Venus slips into a muddling retrograde from today until June 25, stirring the pot in Gemini and your romance sector. Before summer officially arrives, you could get a tempting text from an ex—one who might be better left in the “so done with that” category. A relationship that’s been on-track may hit some speed bumps. Use this time as productively as possible, ironing out differences or giving each other space to work through issues individually. Co-quarantining? You might need a little more space for “me, myself and I” in order to keep the spark alive. Creativity can be cathartic over the coming six weeks, but consider waiting until late June to share your work with the general public. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
All systems…halt? Venus, planet of love and harmony, turns retrograde until June 25, which could decrease the peace you feel at home and with your dearest friends. While Venus retreats through Gemini, it might be harder to relax in your space—and there could be friction with a female relative or roomie. If she’s pushing your buttons, don’t engage; de-escalate! (Which might mean wearing noise-canceling headphones AND finding a place of your own.) Venus is the planetary aesthete, and this backspin could inspire you to display more sentimental objects around your space. Hold off until late-June to paint, hang wallpaper or redo your bedroom since your palette and tastes could shift wildly until then. See the full week >
