Date: March 4th - April 15th
March begins with Venus retrograde, March 4th - April 15th, in the sign of Aries. The Aries symbol is the Ram, charging through life unaware of others, new beginnings, “me first”, aggression, impulsiveness, action, adventure, ego, self-expression and selfishness. Venus isn’t a good combination for Aries as the softness of Venus is “burned” by the Aries “fire”. However, as all retrogrades influence each person to “go within”, all the above characteristics will be directed inwards and motivate Aries to explore their inner desires and intentions and even maybe decide to change certain behaviors. This is an opportunity to start looking at life through a different lens, learning how to interact with more harmony towards others individuals.
Co-incidentally, Venus also rules Libra, the opposite sign of Aries, indicating a need for balance, harmony and diplomacy. This will cause turmoil within Aries because these characteristics are the antithesis of how Aries operates through life. But the retrograde urges to strive for balance - to be charming and receptive to the opinions/feelings of other people. The “me first” attitude can become me, you and others too!
This is the way to be in harmony with the Universe, realizing we are all connected and every thought, word and deed creates a “ripple effect” that effects others and eventually returns to the source. During the retrograde there will be times when it’s necessary to stop, look and listen to the voices of others, and assess the worth/value of what has been accomplished so far.. This is the message from the Universe - Aries isn’t an “island unto itself”, the Venus in Aries retrograde is about Unity through Diversity.
