Venus will be retrograde from March 4 - April 15, 2017. Venus is the planet of love, marriage, friendship, affection, food, creativity, beauty, art, music, diplomacy, vehicles, and all sorts of pleasures. During Venus' retrograde phase, it is best to avoid making any new beginnings in any of these areas.
On the other hand, this period may be good for refining, perfecting and improving things related to Venus which have already started. It is also a typical time for revisiting past Venus-related experiences. For example, it might be a good time for visiting old friends or for working on past emotional traumas.
If you are having trouble with this overflowing Venus energy, chanting the Venus mantra will help:
Om Hreem Shukrayah Namaha
