Venus Goes Retrograde This Summer, Here’s What This Means For Your Love Life

Venus, the planet of love, goes retrograde this summer for the first time since early 2022, and your love life may be going through a dramatic transformation over the next month. Venus is unlike Mercury in that it only goes retrograde every 18 months, whereas Mercury is retrograde a few times a year. The last time Venus was in retrograde motion was December 19, 2021, until January 29, 2022, when it was retrograde in Capricorn.

This year, Venus will go retrograde from July 22, 2023, until September 3, 2023, in the sign of Leo. Venus retrograde in Leo will enhance a clash of egos and higher expectations and will also be setting the stage for relationships to grow stronger, happiness to be fulfilled, and love to dance.


What Does Venus Represent and Venus Retrograde in Leo Mean?

Before understanding what Venus in retrograde entails, it’s best to identify what Venus herself represents. Venus is the planet of love, but she also signifies money, pleasure, sex, relationships, values, and art. With Venus in retrograde, these are the areas of life that will be the most affected. Venus, currently in Leo, will especially be bringing the dramatics over the next month or so.

Venus in Leo is a fun, playful, and passionate lover, and in retrograde motion, it can feel like love is going at a slower pace than wanted or that self-love is difficult to make sense of.

This Venus retrograde is asking you, how willing are you to grow in love, and what does that mean for the relationship you have with yourself? Venus in Leo isn’t concerned with the past, or what happened then, Venus in Leo asks us to be brave now, to show up for love today, and to be generous with how we show our love. Not only to others but to ourselves as well.

Over the next month, you will be redefining where your passions are, where love grows for you, what relationships fulfill you in life, and how to tap into more of your inner happiness.

Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio, and Libra will feel this Venus retrograde more than most.
