Venus: What You Love And How You Love



What are you looking for in a relationship? What might be holding you back from finding it, or feeling satisfied once you do pluck that rainbow trout from a river of guppies? If you have such questions understanding Venus in your natal chart can be extremely illuminating. Much like the goddess she is named after, Venus’ placement shows what you love and how you love. What will keep you happy in a relationship and what you have to give to the other person.

That special spark


Your talents, skills, and abilities can be seen through your Venus. She embodies that special spark that only you can manifest in this world and the one that gives you your sense of self-worth. As such the planet also deals with money and your capacity to earn it. And when you think about it that makes some sense, the more you believe in your abilities, the more confidence you have, the better the world treats you, and the more money you can make.

Ying and Yang


In a woman’s chart Venus reflects how feminine and beautiful she feels. This is more of an inward manifestation of beauty, since to see outward beauty we would look at the Ascendent. Is her idea of lingerie more in line with something out of a survivalist magazine than Victoria’s Secret? She feels beautiful in that camo backpack with her Venus in Capricorn, the sign of planning and preparedness.

In a man’s chart Venus shows the kind of woman he will be attracted to. Is Venus in Cancer in the 4th House? He’ll be looking for a home body and someone to take care of him. Or is Venus in Gemini in the 8th House? Then he will be inclined to like a bit of intensity and drama in his women but also some intellectual stimulation and good conversation.

As with everything in Astrology it’s also all about the aspects. So a woman with Venus in Gemini may be prone to infidelity in a relationship for example, but if Saturn, planet of commitment and longevity, is giving Venus the eye then this tendency can be curbed.

What you need


Understanding your Venus can help you to pin point what you need, and what you need to avoid, to be happy in your relationships. There are so many complex things going on in your natal chart that sometimes the desires of Venus…your desires…are put on the back burner. So I’m here writing to you about her, even though I am extremely Mars heavy, because no one puts Baby in a corner.
