Venus turns Retrograde for an average of 40 days every year and a bit as she transitions from being the beautiful evening wishing star to journey through the underworld, where she is a gangsta of love? and returns as the beautiful morning star.

In her 8-year journey between her retrograde star points, she depicts a 5 pointed star or pentagram formation in the skies. She also forms the diagram of a rose. That is why the rose is considered to be the ultimate feminine flower and the apple is sacred to Venus as these are the images she creates. Remember Lilith giving Eve the apple to eat in the Garden of Eden?

This is a very symbolic returning to the original Goddess Energy of Venus and women as SOURCE of all. A very potent symbol. 
 
On April 8th VENUS retrograde in PISCES squares SATURN at the GALACTIC CENTER which could mean a cosmic karmic changing of the patriarchal old guard. This aspect may be the ending of many relationships which have been together for many years.

Venus was traditionally INANNA QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and earth. Not just a Goddess of beauty, romance, and the arts.  Her Retrograde period of 40 days- note that significant count-is mythologized in the tale of Inanna going into the underworld to visit Ereshkigal her dark twin sister and returning after being killed by her. She sends her consort-lover into the underworld to replace herself. The myth explains Venus’s cycle and is also an archetypal myth about all aspects of the Divine Feminine, the light and the dark and how we must own all aspects of Her as well as aspects of the light and dark masculine.
