Planetary stations are one of the most reliable and infallible predictive tools an astrologer can have.
Anytime a planetary station hits a natal planet or sensitive point (like the Ascendant or a house cusp), events start to unfold with high accuracy.
Transiting stations work out on the day of the station when they hit a natal planet or sensitive point.
Progressed stations work out in the year of the exact station -- without them aspecting or hitting any natal or progressed planet or point.
Indeed, progressed stations ALWAYS work out.
In this article we take a look at the station of progressed Venus.
The progressions are used to forecast (long-term) influences following the key of 'one day after birth = one year after birth.'
In other words, if you take an ephemeris and find your birthdate you can count one day forward to predict the events that will unfold during your 1st year.
The date of birth is year zero and the following day represents age 1. Two days after birth represents age 2 etc.
You may notice that following the days after birth, there will be days on which a planet stations (changes from direct to retrograde motion or vice versa).
These are the most important days (years).
You can list these days and convert them to years (ages).
These years WILL mark events that will be remembered your life long.
When you have listed these planetary stations counting forward, you can also go backward.
Count your birthdate as zero and the day before your birthdate as age 1, 2 days before your birthdate as age 2 etc.
These are the converse progressed positions that are as valid is the direct progressions.
Likewise, you can find days before your birthdate on which planets change direction and you should also write them to your list.
This way, you have an overview of all the ages during which planets station and change direction.
Fortunately, most astrological software programs have a hit list that show the planetary stations immediately and conveniently.
If you happen to find Venus on your list, your life will start to take on a different course in matters related with Venus.
What does Venus represent in the progressed chart?
Progressed Venus is about relationships (in a wide sense).
Progressed Venus is also about money and possessions.
Progressed Venus is about what you value.
When Venus stations it will mark the year in which these topics pop up strongly.
First and foremost, progressed Venus stationing almost always marks a year of financial changes (because of a job change, wealth through marriage, inhertitances,...).
Progressed Venus stationing will also mark the year in which major relationship milestones happen (marriages, divorces, separations, death of the partner, meeting new people,...).
There is no difference between Venus starting to turn direct versus starting to move retrograde actually regarding the events that happen (there can and will be either marriages or divorces on both occasions).
However, retrograde Venus is more 're-alistic' and often more 're-strictive', while Venus moving forward is more liberating.
Venus starting its direct motion is often releaved to find some release from some situation.
Venus going backwards becomes more re-clusive and shy or 'on itself.'
Retrograde Venus tries to find peace and harmony in itself.
Also, when Venus starts turning retrograde, you are less likely to socialize and may be less affectionate.
On the other hand, you may become more materialistic and attached to property and/or possessions/money.
Your values will thus be altered (re-versed) by the change of direction as well.
Hence, you may tend to feel better after a divorce when Venus stations and turns direct rather than when Venus stations and turns retrograde.
In some cases, Venus retrograde will bring back a former lover but this is -- as such -- not the most common trait of progressed Venus stationing.
