All you need to know about Venus :
Venus seductive in love... always! Venus rules the signs of Taurus and Libra. In the first of these signs, it expresses the Earth element in a sensual way and leads us into carnal delights and pleasures of an oral nature (love of food, for example),which are often associated with the voluptuous Taurus. In Libra, the planet is more concerned with harmony and courtly love, inspired exchanges and the quest for ideals which are closely linked with the sign's Air element! Venus is a personal planet which orbits the zodiac in 224 days and tells us about our approach to love and feelings! It also hurries us without hesitation down the slope towards desire, attraction and physical love.
This sublime goddess represents the female, not as a mother or wife, but as lover, mistress and irresistible seductress. Venus is also about beauty and elegance, and governs all places dedicated to pleasure (theatres etc...).
Venus in our charts:
Whereas Mars in our chart generally informs us about the kind of man we can get on with, Venus on the other hand tells us what kind of woman attracts us and is likely to retain our attention... and moreover, whether there is a natural affinity! As a symbol of Beauty, love and sexual desire, Venus is going to foster interchange, encounters and relationships. Her harmonious transits through our birth chart will encourage emotional fulfilment and often inform us when it is propitious to go for a transient relationship or one involving more intense emotions. If the planet receives negative aspects in our chart, we can expect to have to face problem areas connected with jealousy and possessiveness, and occasionally a complicated approach to the games of love!
On the physical plane, Venus is associated with the female organs, the circulation and the throat (a typically Taurean attribute),and also renal function (governed by the sign of Libra). Many beautiful singing voices (whether of the variety type or belonging to female stars or amateurs) benefit from an unlimited flow of Venusian inspiration, but the planet protects and fully inspires all those who have artistic talent, to whatever extent. Venus therefore fosters and encourages all signs of beauty and love, informing us about our seductive powers and powers of attraction, but also about nature and the way we express our feelings (freely or otherwise, complexes or no complexes...).
The position of Venus in your horoscope is an indicator of your deepest values and your creative abilities. Depending on her position, with positive or negative aspects, she can develop talent or encourage you to be more successful in love. She endows you with diplomatic skills and either makes the influence of Mars more rounded, or exalts it (in Aries and Scorpio especially).
