Venus, in transit, takes over one year to complete its cycle around the Sun. It takes approximately 18 months from one retrograde period to the next and its retrograde cycle is approximately 40 days in length. Many but not all individuals have Venus conjunct the Sun in their birth chart as it is never more than 48 degrees away from the Sun.

Venus is a feminine planetary influence and is linked to the sense of touch, material things and love. It has to do with kindness and politeness and has a flair for being around beautiful things. When Venus is direct in motion, it tries to manifest harmony, peace, beauty and love. When it is retrograde, its effects are reversed often taking on energies similar to that of Mars. The energies of Venus when in retrograde become more aggressive and the drive may still be towards gaining material abundance although when it is attached to business activities, its influence often slows things down or even moves into reverse for a while.

Check if Venus is in retrograde or direct motion in your birth (natal) chart. This will define how the energies will be released when activated.

Venus when in conjunction to the Sun will only have a lasting influence of about 10 days unless it moves into retrograde and then its energies will last longer. Much will depend on the energies of other planetary influences during the time it is aspecting your Sun and all these energies have to come into play. This Astrologer only uses the transits of outer planets to natal Venus as the energies are often far too short to make any significant changes to our lives (with the influences of the inner planets); however the cycle will still have an impact on what takes place in your life.

You will find that affections are increased and your sensitivities are also enhanced during these contacts. You may desire more social time, and you will express yourself in a comfortable manner. Venus and the Sun usually go together very well and unless there are other mitigating factors making challenging angles to this conjunction, it generally is quite favourable.

You may feel inclined to go out and enjoy yourself. It is quite favourable to look after your own needs during this time. You may find relaxation in whatever you undertake and the challenging conditions in life may be swept away at least for a while. Sometimes you will need to make things happen and other times things just seem to flow your way. Sitting back and waiting for life to happen, however, is questionable. Take life by the horns and have some fun.

You may run into someone that adds meaning to your life at this time. This applies both for women and men, but Venus usually indicates the female aspect and women in general are quite fun to be with now. Men will attract connections as will women during this cycle, although the women seem to enjoy these energies a little more than men.

Venus is also about creativity and artistic abilities. You may find that pursuing any type of creativity will be favourable. The energies flow well into these areas and you may find that you enjoy this part of your life more now than ever. Starting a project might be a good idea. Ensure that you are surrounding yourself with visual complements that help you settle into things. Beauty is important and you can create wonderful things during this short stay with the conjunction between Venus and the Sun.
