Venus Return: What it is and how to embrace this astrological transit

venus return

A Venus return is an astrological phenomenon that astrologers look forward to. It simply is an exciting and highly personal time to live in! What’s more, it happens at least once a year. This means that people can look forward to it happening on a relatively regular basis. There is just so much to do whenever it happens! But to an astrology newbie it may be a very confusing concept. With all things considered, what then is this event? And what does Venus return mean?

What is a Venus return?

First, we must have context. Every human being has their own personal birth chart. It does not matter if they are aware of it or not. This chart shows the placement of all the astrologically notable stars and planets the moment a person is born. Among these great celestial bodies is the planet Venus. This planet is believed to symbolize love, beauty, and passion, just as its namesake goddess was. As you might have guessed, she also has a place in everyone’s birth charts.

This is where Venus return comes into play. As said, it happens at least once a year. However, when exactly it happens varies from person to person. After all, Venus (and all other heavenly bodies) had a distinct placement in a person’s birth chart. Therefore, this return occurs when it goes back to the exact position that it had during a person’s birth. The time and date that it happens in a certain year doesn’t exactly happen on a person’s birthday, though. It is affected by factors such as the occurrence of retrogrades, and other astronomical phenomena. This does not mean that it isn’t measurable, though. There are numerous online resources that offer to calculate when your very own Venus return is going to occur. Or if you really want the full experience, you can ask a professional astrologer to make a Venus return chart for you.

But wait, you might say. Didn’t you say “at least once a year”? Well, if a Venus retrograde happens around the time of your return, then there is a chance that you can have three returns! Yes, it may sound exciting, but hold your horses. Not everything about the return of Venus is as magical as it might seem. And now this brings us to

What is behind the Venus return meaning?

A Venus return in astrology is generally seen to be a good transit. It is believed to herald in a new chapter in a person’s love life, personal relationships, as well as enjoyments. Once your return happens, you are encouraged to embrace these new developments. Old, stagnating relationships must be let go of. There still are more people for you to meet, and there are those more deserving of your love! The things that give you a sense of joy and pleasure will be enhanced from this point on.

But there can also be times when the return of Venus might result in negative events. This is not its fault, though. It largely stems from the planets that it will be interacting with during this time. But you should not despair. The probability of this ever happening to you is so low that it may not even happen!

What happens during this transit is largely dependent on the cosmic movements. But you can be assured that the universe is telling you something through this event. All you have to do is to listen closely and pay attention to everything that is going on. With this, you can be assured that you will be making the most out of this auspicious period.

What are the Venus return interpretations out there?

As said, a Venus return occurs at exactly the same place where it emerged during a person’s birth. It only follows that it will happen in the same astrological house where it first appeared. Venus will then change that house in ways that one could not have expected. For this, you must be aware which house that Venus will return to for you. This way, you will not be left surprised of what may possibly happen. You may even brace yourself if ever something bad will occur.

all eyes are on you

You may even seek out ways that you will be able to enhance yourself physically. No longer will you feel insecure of what others say or think; this is your chance to embrace yourself inside and out.

Another thing for you to keep in mind is that it will be a time of indulgence. Now that you feel self-assured, you’d of course want to treat yourself!

It can also be a time for introspection for you, too. As you allow yourself to enjoy your possessions, you will also come to realize what they actually mean to you.

There is so much for you to explore, and you just might stumble into something that can change you forever.

You will also be feeling more open and accepting of new ideas and possibilities. The vastness of the world may be incomprehensible, but it will allow you to see the world differently. This paradigm shift will then help you change your value system into one that is more inclusive and accepting. After all, this world is a wonderful tapestry, not tailor-fitted for just one way of thinking.

Tenth House

With the transit occurring here, you will see almost everything in your life becoming public. For some, this can be quite challenging. However, you will see this differently.

Are social circles really your sources of fun, or just sources of social clout? As you come to realize things, you will also see people who are worth your time and attention as life companions.

Twelfth House

A Venus return in this house can be quite a roller coaster ride. This is because the change that will occur will not be visible from the outside. However, it does not diminish the fact that this is a time of transformation for you. In fact, it will help you realize what “spiritual” truly means, as well as how you can practice self-love. In fact, you may even find yourself confronting whatever hidden feelings you have for someone.
