Venus is one unique planet when it comes to rotational motion. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus also is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, a phenomenon called retrograde motion, which according to most theories is due to an ancient planetary collision.

Retrograde Motion

On June 30th Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is turning to retrograde motion at 28 degrees of Pisces. This will intensify Chiron’s effect on this day, and perhaps a day or two before and after. This may bring up old wounds, or new, that will be felt on a personal level, and on the level of the collective of humanity. If you have any planets in your birth chart between 27-29 degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, or Virgo, you will feel this even more.
