Venus goes retrograde on May 13th and with that, a lot of energies are coming forth. Venus in itself is a powerful planet and it rules over love.

Venus going retrograde is going to make it harder to really move forth in the world of love. You may question things more and really feel concerned about whom you hold the closest. During this kind of celestial event, a lot of things from our past lives come in to play. We begin to sort through the karmic things we’re facing and learn the truth behind our life lessons. 

While you may be feeling more confused as these energies come forth they will bring clarity as time passes. Things might seem complicated but the more you learn through these energies the more you will begin to see things as they are. I know, this might sound confusing but it will all make sense very soon. 

Astrology King wrote as follows on these energies and the aspects of this retrograde:

Venus square Neptune climaxes May 20 but stays within 2° orb from April 28 to May 25. So it a very strong influence on this whole retrograde cycle. It increases your need for tenderness and affection but can also cause disillusionment in love, confusion, and deception.

You may experience feelings of insecurity about yourself and how you look. A poor self-image can lead to relationship difficulties but there are other effects of this aspect that can lead to disappointment in your love life.

You may also be more susceptible to lies, deception, disloyalty, fraud, and generally being taken advantage of. So if you are dating during Venus retrograde 2020, it is most important to avoid over-idealizing a romantic interest as you could ignore their obvious faults which are plain for others to see.

Venus square Neptune will be especially challenging for love relationships that already suffer from suspicion and mistrust. But relationships based on mutual understanding and trust may actually enjoy increased tenderness and romance.

The potential for low self-esteem and lack of self-discipline present a challenge if you are dieting. You could also be more susceptible to the depressive and addictive influence of drugs and alcohol. Regular users should beware of overdose or being ripped off by dealers. This aspect also suggests the coronavirus pandemic will be more difficult to control, with an increased risk of infection and disease.

We should all work hard to be on guard during the coming days as this retrograde unfolds and keep in mind that when we get down there could be celestial things coming out to affect us. While you might feel like jumping ship in your current relationship unless things are toxic maybe wait them out just a little bit to be sure. The universe has a lot of plans for us and these are just small steps along the way.
