During these 41 days, Venus will also be Combust due to close proximity with Sun between 07:21 IST on 04 January 2022 – 05:08 IST on 14 January 2022.
Venus, the planet of Love retrogrades roughly once every 18 months for around 40 days at a time, wreaking havoc on everything it rules: relationships, affection, love, sexual relations, money, pleasure, comforts and art.
This is NOT a good time to get married, begin enter a new relationship, new investments, get a makeover.
Generally, people born with retrograde Venus tend to have unrealistic dreams about Love and end up with broken relations.
Transit retrograde Venus is not actually bad for love to everyone. It will bring up underlying issues that need to be addressed and healed. Situations might feel super hard in the moment, but if addressed properly, they will clear up quickly and open doors for better chances in future.
If a relation was never destined to develop or stay for longer term, Venus will end it during these 41 days.
For a very few people, Venus will also bring back their ex-love. This is done to clear up the remaining karmic baggage between them or to reunite if they have issues sorted out already,
People born with Retrograde Venus cannot enjoy simple things liked by others, like music, art, humour, nature, relations etc. They act too mechanical in relations.
They tend to remain lonely, assume that they are not loved by any and develop frustration. During transit Venus Retrograde periods, they find themselves restricted, slowed or tied down in love, financial and all materialistic affairs.
Their idealistic views about family, love etc make them end up as failures in life.
Venus combustion (Sukra Moudyami) which happes between 20:50 IST on 04 January – 05:08 IST on 14 January 2022, will further test ‘real‘ intentions in relations.
This combustion devoids everyone of guidance towards the right path as Venus is one of the natural benefic planet (other being Jupiter).
When we cannot see Venus we are “without guidance” and this is also called Venus Eclipse.
Venus is the planet of Value (Love and Relations). When it is invisible or retrograde, it is harder to determine the true value of anything.
During this period, which is called as Sukra Moudyami , Positive effects of Venus will be drastically reduced and thus people who believe in astrology, will not perform any auspicious ceremonies during this time such as weddings, engagements, house warming, launching of new business etc.
Also avoidable are changing or joining new job, moving to a new house, change of work place, interior designing at home or office.
This ‘Venus Eclipse‘ can be seen couple of hours after sunset in west direction. Venus appears as a small black spot on Sun.
8 years back, Venus was retrograde and combust in between Capricorn-Sagittarius during December 2013 – January 2014.
Similar situations can repeat for everyone as Venus is transiting same signs this time around.
Also Venus will be conjunct Pluto, which it will cross 3 times in coming 2-3 months time.
This will trigger deep love feelings for many. Most of them will end up with doubts, treachery and heart-breaks.
‘Dark‘ side will get activated for few (if born with similar conjunction in natal chart) and many with well placed Venus can get into writing, poetry, painting, art etc.
Venus conjunct Saturn during December 2021 and conjunct Mars too during March 2022 will trigger unusual sexual relations, aggression in love approach, uncontrollable desires, insomnia for many.
Those born with Venus as their ruling planet (born in ascendants or moon signs of taurus or libra, with moon in nakshatras of bharani, poorva phalguni, poorvashada, born on friday) can get frustrated easily, lose self control over petty issues, loss of income, get irritated by watching entertainment programs.
Note : Venus transiting 8th bhava of India after 6th January 2022 while being retrograde and combust is bad for Virus spread, economy. Also it is transiting in 6th house for Moon Sign of India (Cancer). This is economically, politically challenging period.
Kala Sarpa Yoga / Dosha 2022 is already active and the world is still not covid-19 free.
During this time, Mercury will also be retrograde from 14 January 2022.
This will cancel few existing plans, schedules, makes us do lot of re-work, re-scheduling, re-planning.
In general, Venus during these 41 days is not good for anyone born in any moon sign or Ascendant.
