Talk about your unmet needs for love and admiration going through the wringer these next few weeks. As Venus retrograde in your own sign you may notice becoming a little too obsessed with how you come off to others, both in appearance and in manner. Whilst on the surface your somewhat overt vanity and egocentricity betrays that you fancy yourself, underneath there is a certain ambivalence about your overall appeal, so you may swing from one extreme to another in how you give and receive love from others – either going too hard or not hard enough with regard to the situation.
In your relationships you may be overly content with being your own person in one instance, then become overly possessive of others in another, mostly for fear of being left alone. This transit can therefore create serious problems for you in any relationship or marriage where either party is too possessive or otherwise refuses to be controlled by the other.
Through the course of this transit, you will find a way to stay in relationship to another, yet not engage or employ the old, worn-out dramatic measures to try to control how things should be. Use the naturally magnetic quality of Venus to allow you to become both giver and receiver of love in equal measure. Attaining a state of deep, realistic self-acceptance will help you to transform yourself.
