'Venus Retrograde' – 6 Keys that will keep you guarded!

Many believe that 'Venus Retrograde' is not as much a significant phenomenon as 'Mercury Retrograde'. Well, it's a wrong perception, says Ganesha! Though, your phones may not keep conking off like, as they would during a Mercury retrograde; internet channels would work undisturbed, and communication shall continue to be hassle-free, but what about relationships and the matters of romance and the heart? Why do we use the communication instruments and gadgets? Majorly for intercting with the people who are a part of our life. Right? So, what's the use of all the nicely performing communications paraphernalia, if the relationships themselves in the first place are not functioning smoothly? 

Venus turned retrograde on the 25th July 2015, and will remain retrograde till 6th September, 2015. Venus retrogression happens less frequently as compared to Mercury retrogression; it occurs once in about every 18 months. The Venus Retrograde lasts for about a period of 40-43 days. The term retrograde doesn't literally imply that Venus starts moving backwards; it is just a phase wherein Venus corrects its motion and gets back to its normal pace. This is not a period to be too worried about, but it should be utilised to re-think and re-consider various aspects of our life. 

To get a better idea about this phenomenon, check if the many of the following things are leaving you feeling uncomfortable. If yes, then it should be clear to you that you are also one of those experiencing the unusual effects of a retrograde Venus! 

1. Have you been facing problems in properly expressing yourself from a few days?
2. Of late, do your partner, wife or girlfriend seems to be behaving in a very unusual way?
3. Does some person in your circle – be it a relative, friend or business partner seem to have gone all nuts all of a sudden?
4. Do relationships look very confusing right now? You may be conveying one thing, but the other person is assuming something else altogether!
5. You are constantly feeling that your emotions are not being properly reciprocated or acknowledged; you are feeling that people do not care much for emotional depths and social niceties. You did something good for someone, but you are feeling that the person is not thankful or grateful enough!
6. You do not feel inclined to go and meet your sweetheart. Instead you often wish to spend your time alone.
7. There seems to be an affection/warmth/love/appreciation deficit all around you and you are feeling extremely frustrated!
8. You are realising that your best buddy is actually more important to you than your partner/sweetheart/girlfriend and you are wanting to distance yourself from the latter.
9. Did someone recently pointed out that the colour combination of trousers and shirt or jeans/top that you recently wore was a bit odd?
10. You may have the demonic urge to split from your relationship right now.
11. Sex and romance may not seem very interesting.
