Retrograde Venus, if it was a camera effect on our lives, it would be wiping the Vaseline off the lens, and gone would be the soft dreamy focus.
A new relationship formed under the influence of Rx Venus's expression will be an inwardly focused romance. There will be less syrup, less perfume, less intoxication, less softness.
It may be a matter-of-fact partnership, cut to the chase, or a dry-er endeavor than expected.
It might be a relationship where your love as a couple doesn't radiate on the outside as it should, but is an intimacy felt profoundly inside of both people, putting both in touch with their subjective selves. This love might be more of an inward psychological experience than an interpersonal one.
