Love alert: Venus retrograde
Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, usually go back about every year and a half during a period of approximately 40 days, this year 2017 Venus retrogradará from march 4 to April 15.
When a planet is retrograde, all of the issues associated with their analogies require much more care and attention. The periods of retrogradation of the planets are periods appropriate to revise, reorder and rearrange the issues associated with their analogies. Venus is linked with the affections, money, values, finances, and beauty and aesthetics.
It is for this reason that the purchases and sales will be more complex during this period. We could sell something for less than it’s worth or vice versa to buy the most expensive. That is why it is necessary to pay special attention to all matters pertaining to securities and investment. It is not advisable to buy objects of luxury, nor of art, nor, in short, to invest large sums of money. Nor is it favorable to start new businesses, because the flow of money will be more complicated and labour-consuming for the venture. You have to be careful and put limits, control spending.
As Venus rules the aesthetic procedures, in general, it is not recommended to do during its retrograde, especially those that can be more invasive.
Venus governs our way of relating to the other. For those who have a recent relationship, initiated before this period, it is possible that there is a need to reconsider some of the behaviors because it may be a good time to carry out adjustments and changes of postures. As the retrograde also connects us with the past can reappear old relations, that we may cause doubts and questions, and with it the awareness that we have open issues to resolve. During this month and a half it is preferable not to take decisions sentimental important: neither separations, nor commitments, nor marriages, nor to formalize relationships.
Although the retrogradation of Venus is a universal setting and therefore in some way affects us all, the planet of love and pleasure retrogradará in the sign of Aries (from grade 13° to the 27° of Pisces). Venus in Aries is in exile, and therefore, weakened.

As a matter of regencies should also pay attention Taurus and Libra. Sagittarius and Leo and to a lesser extent, Gemini and Aquarius will benefit from this transit.
