Venus traveling retrograde in your case has more to do with career than love -- unless you're married and struggling to feel supported by your mate. It is possible that you're in a situation where you're re-evaluating your professional goals and running into trouble feeling as though your love is on your side as you make this transition. Perhaps he or she is concerned about the financial implications behind any change you want to make. Or, it's possible that your partner feels that you're ignoring your relationship while you're spending all this time getting things straightened out career wise. Whatever the details, if you are in a committed partnership you might want to set aside some time this month to remind yourself that all relationships require work -- and not just when it's convenient for you.
