Planet of beauty and love, Venus (Sukra) will appear to travel in Retrograde motion for 43 days between 25 July 2015 from 14:57 IST until 06 September 2015 13:56 IST.
During this period, Venus will get closer to Sun and be combust between 21:54 IST on 10 August 2015 until 03:14 IST on 21 August 2015 (20th August in Europe, North & South America).
A planet ‘appears’ to be in retrograde motion, when it travels at lesser speed than normal and when compared to earth’s speed, it looks as if travelling back.
During these 6 weeks Venus can slow down things in fields of art, fashion, jewelry, cinema, television, drama, music, alchohol, interior design and perfume industries.
Venus retrograde can cause a cloud on our judgement in love matters.
So, it is important to postpone all important plans, proposals etc related to heart until 07 September 2015.
Venus Combust Effects in 2015

People born under ascendants and moon signs of Leo and Cancer should void major financial transactions, love and sexual affairs, buying of jewelry, starting of new projects during this period.
These precautions should also be taken by people who are going through Venus(sukra) vimsottari dasa or if born under nakshatras of Bharani, Poorva Phalguni, Poorvashada.
When Venus or Jupiter remain combust, we cannot see them or recieve their guidance.
During this period of Sukra Moudyami, Positive effects of Venus will be drastically reduced and thus Hindus who believe in Vedic Astrology, will not perform any auspicious ceremonies during this time such as weddings, engagements, house warming, launching of new business, investments, purchasing properties etc.
However, talks and paperwork for above can be done during this period.
Venus, which controls movies and arts will not be beneficial for those who work in those fields until 06 September 2015.
If venus is a benefic in your personal horoscope, good effects will be minimised and if its a malefic for you, it’ll give some relief during this combust period.
Also people born under Taurus, Libra acsendants and moon signs should be careful about relations, health and financial transactions during this time period.
Throughout this period, Venus will be conjunct Jupiter, which will be good for people born under Ascendants or Moon Signs or Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Pisces.
For few days in between this period, Venus will be aspected by direct Saturn, which will increase alchoholism and drug usage.
Health issues related to gastroenterology will increase (are already on rise since early June 2015).
