Excerpt from my latest Sasstrology article (comments have been disabled for this post on this site, please leave comments on the Sasstrology site).
"Despite being the planet of love and attraction, transiting Venus doesn’t usually create much of a stir. She moves quickly, aspecting natal planets, points or angles for about two days. If you feel her influence at all, you experience a gentle brush with possibility, unless she’s coinciding with stronger influences. But when Venus is retrograde, she grabs your attention. This will be happening from July 25th to September 6th, 2015."
