Traditionally Venus turning direct was an auspicious symbol, akin to something like the image of a man or woman rising out of bed for the first time after a fever passed through. Any planet turning direct usually signifies the return of its power, a change of circumstances for the better, or the restoration or return of something lost, delayed, blocked, or set back. For example, in my own birth chart, Venus is in the 4th house in the sign of Leo. This Venus retrograde has thus been taking place for me in the same house and sign Venus was in when I was born. Just as Venus turned retrograde we experienced a month long delay and setback in the process of purchasing our first home. Just as Venus was reaching her station point this past week, ready to turn direct again, my wife and I finally closed on the house and are now finishing our move-in process. The retrograde period, on one level, brought up for me an old struggle with feeling displaced from home…which is now resolving itself as Venus turns direct.
Venus may similar signify periods of revision, going into the past, delays, setbacks, or road blocks with regard to whatever Venus signifies naturally in a person’s birth chart…but more generally to what Venus signifies naturally: love, romance, self esteem, valuables, relationships, sex, lifestyle, aesthetics, or personal style or image.
As Venus turns direct, look at your life and see if you can spot anything that has recently taken a turn for the better after a long period of setback, delay, introspection, or revision..dating back to roughly the end of July, but perhaps as early as late June.

Prayer: Born on the waves, goddess of love, now rising as the morning star, thank you!
