Having knowledge about your Venus sign can reveal a lot about your love life. It can show you why you like what you like in partners, what your love language is, and how to tap into the potential of your relationships.
If you’re interested in learning more about your Venus sign then make sure to continue reading, who knows what secrets you can discover about yourself and your relationships!
Is My Venus Sign Happy?
Did you know that certain planets prefer to be in certain signs and feel quite uncomfortable being in others? This is usually the case if you feel quite lucky in love… or maybe a bit unlucky. Venus reveals all of this!
There are three signs Venus that is particularly happy in; that being Taurus, Libra, and Pisces. Venus rules both Taurus and Libra, it feels at home in these signs and that it can do what it wants to do best in these two signs. Venus is exalted in Pisces, which means it is extremely happy in this position.
These three planets all care about achieving peace, balance, and harmony. They can express their love gently and effortlessly. Things just flow easily for those with Venus in these three signs.
Connecting to others feels natural and part of your life purpose when you have Venus in one of these signs. You instinctively know how to bring different elements together to make your life and those you love more pleasurable and likely have a deep appreciation for art, beauty, and anything creative.
Is My Venus Sign Unhappy?
Venus can be rather unhappy in the signs of Aries, Scorpio, and Virgo. Venus is detriment in Aries and Scorpio, which means that the planet feels a little uncomfortable in these two signs. Aries and Scorpio happen to be ruled by the planet of conflict and aggression, Mars.
This makes it quite clear why Venus would be unhappy in these two signs. While Venus just wants peace and harmony, Aries and Scorpio are quite aggressive in their pursuit of love and romance. No wonder there is quite a bit of conflict when Venus is in either of these signs!
Venus is in its fall when it is in Virgo. This means Venus has no idea how to act in this sign, it feels confused and like it can’t be heard or seen. There is no pleasure that Venus feels it can reach when Venus is in Virgo.
But, don’t fret – this isn’t a complete train crash! Having your Venus in Aries, Scorpio, and Virgo is definitely not the end of the world. It just might take you a little bit longer to get to the relationship you’re looking for and there will be a few more hurdles and learning curves you need to go through to get to where you want to be.
You just need to put in a little extra effort into your love life and realize that the journey in pursuing love is definitely going to be a little more colorful, and full of twists and turns. And believe me, the effort you put into your love life will eventually pay off!
What If My Venus Is Neutral?
If your Venus isn’t in any of the above-mentioned signs, then it is likely neutral. Basically, it doesn’t do any harm and is just comfortable where is it placed and doesn’t cause too much friction in your life in a positive or negative way.
Venus in Gemini wants to connect and build bonds with people through communication and intellect, while Venus in Cancer wants to connect through emotional sensitivity. As for Venus in Leo, you prefer to show your love with passion and a lot of creativity.
Then Venus in Sagittarius needs a lot of adventure and excitement to keep their love going, while Venus in Capricorn is all about building something lasting through common goals with your partner, and lastly, Venus in Aquarius wants to love intellectually and out of the box.
Each of these Venus placements will want to create and build relationships in their own unique way, it is just a matter of finding the perfect way to express your love in the way your Venus sign needs you to.
What About The House Placement Of My Venus?
If you’re new to Astrology then you probably don’t know much about a vital component to Astrology called the houses. There are twelve houses and each house represents a different aspect of your life. An example would be, your first house is the house that rules your body and your appearance.
While the fourth house is all about your family and the home you live in, then there is the seventh house that is all about your serious relationships, meanwhile, the tenth house is all about your career and public persona.
And the planets “live” in some of these houses, and of course, Venus is happier in certain houses (and not so happy in others), but today I’m only going to focus on the houses Venus is happiest in.
Venus & Most Beneficial Houses For Her:
If you have Venus in the fifth house, Venus is at its absolute strongest. The fifth house is all about love, romance, sex, pleasure, creativity, and children. You’re likely fun-loving, enjoy having a good time, and love being in the throes of a romance above all!
The first house is a pretty good spot for Venus to be in as well. Because the first house rules your body and your appearance, you are more than likely blessed with good looks. People are drawn in by your charisma, and there is definitely something extra charming about you!
You also definitely have an eye for style, and know how to draw attention to yourself by the way you dress and present yourself to the world. You’re naturally quite attractive and others find you very likable.
Venus in the seventh house is fantastic for relationships, especially long-term relationships. You find committing to a partner comes to you quite easily, and it is a no-brainer for you, you want to get married! You put a lot of your focus on your partnerships and how you relate to others.
And then Venus in the fourth house is also a great position to be in. The fourth house is all about the bonds you form with home and family. This would make you quite the fierce protector of the ones you love, and taking on the role of caregiver and nurturer comes naturally to you. You put your familial relationships first.
And if your Venus isn’t in any of these positions, trust me, it isn’t the end of the world. Venus is one of the planets that brings good fortune and luck to whatever area it is in; it is just a little bit stronger for relationships in these four houses.
What About The Aspects?
If you want to take it a step further in understanding the role of your chart, you can always dive a little deeper into taking a look at the aspects. Aspects in Astrology are basically the relationship that two planets have with each other.
There are five major aspects, mainly Conjunction, Trine, Sextile, Square, and Opposition. Trines and Sextiles are seen as positive aspects, the Conjunction is neutral and the Square and Opposition are negative.
But for the purpose of this article, let’s only take a look at the Sextile and Trine to keep things positive. These two aspects show that the energy between two planets flows easily, there is peace and balance amongst them. The energy gets expressed in a natural way, and conflict is rather unlikely.
