Understanding Transits and Retrogrades of Venus

As one can easily tell from the chart above, Venus Stations Retrograde approximately once every eighteen months, transiting retrograde motion for about 40 days. Because of Venus' proximity to the Sun, Venus' transit by sign is not more than two signs from the sign the Sun is transiting at any given time. The in retrograde motion is an illusion of the planet moving backwards based on the placement of the planet in relation to the Earth and the Sun. When Venus is done transiting in retrograde motion, it will station briefly then resume the transit in direct motion.

To adjust the times for your timezone, add or subtract the number of hours your timezone is from 0 UT. If you live in the western hemisphere (mostly the Americas) you would subtract the number of hours from the time shown on the table. Most of the eastern hemisphere will add hours to the time shown in the table.
