From the brilliant founder of EA – Jeffrey Wolf Green:
THE MARS VENUS PHASAL RELATIONSHIP – BALSAMIC = The keywords are “absolute, infinite, the timeless,” that which goes beyond time and space.
There is an impulse in every single human being to transcend, the sense in every single human being that there is more to reality than meets the eye. Every human being has that knowledge; it is the conflict in every human being between ideals and reality.
When one moves into the balsamic phase, it means that one is beginning to complete an entire cycle which has preceded it, it is a culmination issue, a yin phase. The temptation in the yin phase is to completely withdraw, to retreat, to recluse from all that which has come before.
Yet, relative to culmination, you have to complete, to tie up all the loose ends that have come before so that the new evolutionary cycle that you are preparing for can be born cleanly, without residual effect from the past. So we have a push-pull here. On the one hand the individual in itself wants to retreat and yet, relative to the necessity for completing, must come out of itself and engage in the normal circumstances which will constitute anybody’s life. So it is a push-pull.
This, from a purely archetypal point of view, demonstrates or symbolizes the final merging of divine will. That is the archetype. JEFFREY WOLF GREEN – FOUNDER OF EVOLUTIONARY ASTROLOGY
While Venus travels through 26 Pisces 55 to 13 Aries 09 we will be REVIEWING our VALUES. And Venus and Mars are polarity Planets that help us with the Yin/Yang balance. We must realize what is of value and then act on it, and make deep changes through own self-effort. The Global picture ( pisces) and the wholeness of your own life, can now be re-evaluated and you can discover what you can do about the changes you need to make, through the Mars signs, which also help you move forward.

Mars enters Gemini – on April 21st ( Venus 27 Pisces )
Mars enters Cancer – on June 4th
Venus is in a closing sextile to Mars from April to June
QUOTES ABOUT VENUS RETROGRADE
IN A NATAL CHART… FROM DEVA GREEN
If I have Venus retrograde I must define FOR MYSELF the meaning and values that I have for any relationship. In fact, those who have Venus retrograde typically cannot relate to the traditional/mainstream types of relationships and tend to withdraw within themselves (Taurus co-rulership of Venus) in order to accomplish the individuation process that must occur from an evolutionary standpoint. They are defined through the Taurus side of Venus, not the Libra side (this is from Pluto Vol. 2). The point within this is that certain key situations must be re-lived, or re-experienced before they can be resolved. Most commonly the individuation process indicated by the retrograde planet has not been fully accomplished, and that is why the Soul will set up a life circumstance of re-living certain experiences. Those with Venus retrograde will attract key people with whom there is “unfinished business,” for example, until the person resolves the necessary dynamics reflected by the house and sign of Venus retrograde.

Some astronomical information from the WWWEB http://www.universetoday.com
The orbit of Venus is inside the orbit of Earth. Unlike the outer planets, Venus is always relatively close to the Sun in the sky. When Venus is on one side of the Sun, it’s trailing the Sun in the sky and brightens into view shortly after the Sun sets, when the sky is dark enough for it to be visible. When Venus is at its brightest, it becomes visible just minutes after the Sun goes down. This is when Venus is seen as the Evening Star.
When Venus is on the other side of the Sun, it leads the Sun as it travels across the sky. Venus will rise in the morning a few hours before the Sun. Then as the Sun rises, the sky brightens and Venus fades away in the daytime sky. This is Venus the Morning Star.
The ancient Greeks and Egyptians thought that Venus was actually two separate objects, a morning star and an evening star. The Greeks called the morning star Phosphoros, “the bringer of light”; and they called the evening star Hesperos, “the star of the evening”. A few hundred years later, the Hellenistic Greeks realized that Venus was actually a single object.
