You guys I am not sure what's up lately, maybe it's the Rose Quartz I have been sleeping with over my heart every night, but I have been on a MAJOR Venus kick!!! (aka, rose quartz x Venus very synonymous energies...)
Why is Venus important in our charts?
Venus' placement is powerful to understand as she rules all things Love, Money & Relationships. She rules what we value, she governs beauty, harmony, peace & all things Feminine. We are journeying through a powerful time in "Herstory" right now, as Feminine Energy is really waking up and letting itself be known in the world. There is also a big healing of the female consciousness as we, and the world, wake up to our own power.
Venus in the Signs I feel is an important piece, as you can locate and understand the Sign your natal Venus resides in, you can understand how to work with and honor your unique take on Love & How you show up in your intimate relationships. I personally feel we do the most evolutionary work in our intimate relationships so understanding how we show up in them is paramount to healing ourselves & the world around us...
I created an Astrology Mini Course yesterday that shows you how to locate Venus in your chart, and get deeper information on the Sign & House she resides in. (The House gives you even more information on what you value & where you find pleasure in your life!)
Venus in Aries:
Love can take on an independent and fiery tonality with you. Your biggest focus should be knowing how to love yourself first and then share. You can show up as somewhat self preserving in love & desiring to have your needs met first. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, so long as you are clear about it with yourself and your partner.
Venus in Taurus:
Venus rules Taurus so she is right at home in your love sign. Love is rooted in sensuality and consistency for you. You are patient with the process of courtship and you adore being appreciated and seen. Tokens of affection and lavish offerings are definitely no problem to receive for a Venus in Taurus.
Venus in Gemini:
Love can take on a somewhat impersonal tone for a Venus in Gemini. Communication in love is a yes, but you also can be quite independent and mutable in deep intimate relationships, maybe even a little aloof. Venus is Gemini can have quite a varied and exciting love life because they don't get attached too quickly and enjoy the journey of meeting and getting to know people.
Venus in Cancer:
Venus in Cancer is resonate with deep nurturance, emotional intimacy and feeling in its truest form. This I can imagine would be an incredibly emotional and powerful place for Venus to reside! Venus in Cancer may often give more than the expect to receive, and this perhaps should be balanced if they ever feel taken advantage of. Self worth work is important for this Venus sign, and knowing that the love they offer is gold.
Venus in Leo:
Venus in Leo loves from the deepest core of their heart, but they definitely expect you return the honor. Venus in Leo's shine their heart light and can give love with truly no reservation to anyone they feel respect and admiration, to and from. This Venus Sign could be synonymous with the Hafiz Poem:
“And still, after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.” ― Hafez
Venus in Virgo:
Venus in Virgo 's can often love from a space of practicality, purity and precision. Emotionality isn't exactly their forte and can amount feelings as something to understand on more of an intellectual level. Venus in Virgo has the capacity to love from a very pure place once they have decided to open their hearts to someone. But it may take a while as this Earth / Mercury Ruled Sign intellectualizes the process of falling in love, to be sure they are making the best decision.
Venus in Libra:
Similar to Venus in Taurus, Venus rules the sign of the Scales, Libra. Venus in Libra is a just and harmonious lover, sometimes sweeping under the rug what should be addressed. None the less, Venus is very at home in Libra. This can give Venus in Libran people a feeling of enjoyment in partnership, a true understanding of give & take in relationships and a seeking of harmony with other people. This a soft space for Venus, so confrontation isn't strengthened with this placement.
Venus in Scorpio:
Venus in Scorpio is powerful, sensuous and expressive. A Venus in Scorpio native can be extremely intuitive as a lover, and in love relationships, as authenticity is incredibly important to them. An over exercising of sex or sex for connection / seduction can be an element for those with Venus in Scorpio. Truth is one of the sexiest things to them and they prize loyalty as this is what they offer to their intimate partners.
Venus in Sagittarius:
Venus lightens up in Sagittarius, adventure and getting out of the mundane is perhaps what they seek most in their intimate relationships. Venus is Sag. natives should do best to remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side. A sense of optimism, and playfulness pervades and they do best with a partner who can love & honor their child like energy at times.
Venus in Capricorn:
Practicality, stability and consistency are all cornerstones of the Venus in Capricorn Lover. They show up for those they love and really stand the test of time with their partners. Capricorn as a sign seeks status and recognition, so they may seek partners who enhance their status or compliment the empire they've built in some capacity.
Venus in Aquarius:
Venus in Aquarius can love with a very open hand. They seek independence and freedom in their love relationships and absolutely connect with those who can respect this . Venus in Aquarius lovers can be slightly detached, as Venus in any Air sign takes on more intellectual traits versus emotional ones. Venus in Aquarius can really align their heart & will with humanitarian projects or huge paradigm shifting work.
Venus in Pisces:
Venus in Pisces, some of the deepest lovers in the Zodiac. Venus is exalted in Pisces, meaning, she is at her highest and deepest expression. Venus in Pisces can represent altruist love, or love with very little boundaries. Venus in Pisces can easily blur the line between me & we, and have to be sure to make solid boundaries with lovers & even friends when necessary. Self-love and is a major tenant for Venus in Pisces people, as they give so much love, they need to remember to also give it to themselves.
