Wonderful Attributes of Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart I don’t watch many videos on astrology, usually I am making my own. However, recently I had a video about Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart come to me and since someone close to me has this placement, I was interested in what the person making the video had to say. I listened to almost half of the video, which was done by an amazing astrologer who is well-known and does much for the world with their work. I was surprised by how negative this persons interpretation on Venus Retrograde in the Birth Chart was and upon further research, I found that this was consistent with the other online resources about Venus retrograde in the birth chart. I believe that each planet, sign, and transit have a SPECTRUM of potentials that run from positive to negative. To focus on the aspects of a placement that could be considered negative or challenging is to miss much important working knowledge on the matter. This experience motivated me to share some positive counterbalance on the placement of Venus retrograde in the birth chart.
