On a positive note, the tension we experience during these weeks can help us gain perspective. Those who are already in committed relationships may find themselves in a romantic stand-off as affections cool and problems arise, or as is so often the case—resurface. Uncomfortable as it may feel in the moment, Venus retrogrades can be the perfect opportunity to hash out deep-seated romantic misgivings, so we can get back to the business of loving with clarity and confidence. For others, the Venus retrograde reviews may flag serious deal breakers which eventually signal the end of love.
Though the separation itself may be painful, with the benefit of hindsight we may later acknowledge that a disparity of values was bubbling beneath the surface of our relationship, creating tension. Armed with a clearer sense of what we want, and, perhaps, what we cannot do without, the likelihood of attracting the right partnership post-retrograde is greater. New relationships started under the auspices of Venus retrograde may feel as if they have been perfectly crafted to push all our most troublesome buttons. Subconscious shadow material and psychological projections may flood the romantic plane as we find ourselves irrevocably intertwined in intense, charged, or problematic romantic entanglements.
Often, relationships started during Venus retrograde serve to teach us valuable lessons, some of which may cut ruthlessly close to the bone. With planet Venus' connection to aesthetics, beauty, art, and luxuries, we may be set to review and weigh up the same. While Venus retrograde will ultimately award us a fruitful period for revisiting our creative tastes and proclivities, it also makes this an inopportune time for charging ahead with artistic projects.
Luxurious purchases of any kind made as our values undergo meaningful shifts are likely to feel ill-advised post-Venus retrograde and fill us with buyer's remorse. Design projects, shopping sprees, and 'big ticket' purchases like watches and jewelry would be better left for later in the year. For similar reasons, Venus retrograde is not the ideal time for drastic changes in one's appearance or beauty regimen, whether that entails a new hairdresser or an aesthetician.
Venus also relates to elements of sexuality as well as conception, so it may be well-advised to take heed before jumping headlong into hedonistic bliss or procreation; better success will likely be had with either pursuit once Venus stations direct and exits the retrograde shadow. It is relatively common to have transpersonal planets like Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto retrograde in the natal chart since they spend nearly half the year retrograde.
Venus, on the other hand, only spends about seven percent of its time retrograde, making natal Venus retrograde far less common. Further, and importantly, because Venus is a personal planet tasked with integral parts of our personality and psyche, the effects of Venus retrograde in the natal chart are far more profound. Venus describes by sign, house, and aspect both what we find attractive and how we go about attracting it.
Unlike Mars, the active 'yang' principle which chases after whatever it finds appealing, Venus' talent is for radiating her essence until the right pursuer picks up the scent. Songs of the earth, songs of the sky, in vessels of clay a chamber of stars.

Also a good thing that countless respected conservative and Republican scholars, writers, leaders have left the party and are more critical of Trump than the liberals. The Republican Party is essentially destroyed. They were already desperate, with the old white racists dying off, the millennials turning socialist, the minorities who vote Dem greatly increasing.
