How do you know if Venus is strong or weak?
If you’re afraid to show your affection, you overindulge in food, alcohol, drugs or toxic relationships.
You have an issue with accepting or giving affection or have adverse aspects in your birth chart, which you have not learned to manage.
Such as Moon, Uranus, The Sun or Saturn, oppose Venus, Venus square or quincunx moon, sun, Uranus, Saturn, mars or any other adverse placements or aspect.
However, you can always overcome negative aspects; how I view adverse aspects to Venus or any other planet is that they repeatedly bring the same external experiences into our lives until we learn the lessons.
Events will repeat until we are triggered to think, why does this keep happening to me? What do I need to change within etc.?; if you have Venus in the 12th house, this may give you the tendency to over idealise lovers.
Venus in the 8th house can make you engage in dangerous love games, and Venus in the 6th house can cause excessive relationships with co-workers that can cause tension in the workplace.
Moon oppose Venus in your natal chart can make you repulse the people you’re trying to attract. Because of your irritability or changeability, or you can simply go off, are turned off, by your lovers after a while.
Moon oppose Venus can cause you to fall for the wrong types of people; you can be gullible with your love choices like Venus in the 12th house.
How can I make my Venus happy?
By being true to yourself, finding balance in your life, looking after your emotional, spiritual, financial, psychological and physical (material) life.
Loving yourself first before you try and love anyone else bring creativity; you don’t have to be good at it; even if your paintings look like stick men and you play the guitar or sing badly, do it if it makes you happy.
Outgrow toxic relationships, thoughts and behaviours, do not overindulge all the time, buy some plants and take care of them, spend time in nature, watch rom coms- like the notebook.
Self-care, date yourself, groom yourself, look after your looks and hygiene, respect yourself and others, get to know yourself inside out.
How does Venus affect personality?
The sign and house Venus is in shows us how we like to express our love nature and how we will seek out information about giving and receiving affection. How we have grace, charm, tact – judgment, diplomacy or how we lack these qualities, the ways we appreciate or don’t value- understand love, nature, art, music, food, people etc.
Venus energy is concerned with how do I want to be loved? How do I want to love others? How do I want to be loved? How do I like to give and receive pleasure? Who and what do I find attractive?

Venus meaning in astrology- the long version
What is the role of Venus in astrology?
In astrology, the planet rules love inner values and money in a nutshell. Still, as you see below, it’s not quite as simple as that, as Venus also controls our sentimentality, pleasure, what we value and how we seek gratification; Venus is concerned with how we pleasure ourselves and how we allow others to satisfy us.
Venus rules, beauty, manners-social graces, our joy, what creates lack of happiness, creativity, harmony, how we appreciate or don’t appreciate aesthetics- beauty-nature, taste, overindulgences; however, addiction moves into Neptune’s terrain.
In the natal chart, Venus shows how we give and take in relationships, how we go about establishing them, how we like to be staled or stalk our love prey.
The ways we seek balance, refinement and the food, people, activities, work, exercise and other routines we get our kicks from. And what home inner and physical home means to us via the way we dress our homes and our physical bodies.
At its highest, Venus energy shows us how we compromise, seek and give peace, how we appreciate nature and beauty, peace, give and take, and act in social situations; at its lowest, Venus shows our lack of taste, manners, our personal vanities, superficialness and how we are self-indulgent
The Myth of Venus
Venus is an Italian often referred to as a Greek goddess, although she has many associations, anyway Venus the goddess or god, or non-gender binary bringing of love and commitment.
Venus rules over farms, land, and gardens and is strongly associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, victory, prosperity, unconditional love, fertility, and sex.
Venus is said to help those who want to evolve in the highest forms of love; Venus’s son Aeneas was a wanderer who settled in Italy, who claimed him as their own.
Due to the connection with the Julian house, Augustus and his successors belong to via adoption through Aeneas son Iulus, Venus’s grandson.
Venus helped Aeneas escape the burning city of troy and protected him from the goddess Junos wrath, making Dido, queen of Carthage, fall in love with Aenas to grant him a refugee.
Venus also helped Aeneas with his final battle of Turnus by giving him back his spear that was embedded in a tree and placing it in his hand.
Venus was associated with the Latin goddess of spring flora or Floralia but is commonly linked to Aphrodite, who was the goddess of beauty and love
As mentioned above, Venus was an Italian goddess linked to Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty; Venus supervised gardens and showed humans how to ploughed land to keep it neat.
Aphrodite, who was one of the 12 great Olympians, is the giver of sexual attraction and beauty; they are two birth stories linked to Aphrodite in one, she was the daughter of Zeus and Dione.
In another, she emerged from the sea as a fully grown goddess from foam, which was created when Cronos cut his father’s Uranus genitals off and thrown them into the sea – the “aphro” of Aphrodite’s name means foam.
Wherever Aphrodite walked, flowers grew in her path; she was also known as anadyomeme, which means “she who emerges”.
Venus – Anadyomeme married Hephaestus, but she was unfaithful to him; the misuse of Venus energy such as Venus in Aries can give a very promiscuous nature. Aphrodite was seen as passionate and irresponsible by the Greeks.
Aphrodite was warned by Helios, the sun god, to stop cheating, but she didn’t heed this warning; Aphrodite had many children, including Deimos, Phobos and Harmonia.
Because Venus was seen mocking the gods by having many affairs with the other gods such as Dionysus and Poseidon-Neptune, Zeus forced her to fall in love with Anchises, a mortal.
However, she refused to make love to Hermes-Mercury when he asked, so Zeus stole her sandal and gave it to Hermes.
Who returned it to her, and she had to submit to him, and she gave birth t their son, who was a hermaphrodite, both male and female.
Aphrodite was very alluring and could make all the gods fall for her except Hestia, Athena and Artemis.
Venus – Aphrodite loved mortal men. In one myth, she punished the muse Clio who laughed at her for falling for the mortal Adonis, so she made Clio fall in love with a mortal man.
There are many myths like this about Venus, in which she was depicted as unkind, promiscuous or ludicrous in early Greek literature; in later myths, she was seen as a supreme generative force.
Representing the dual nature of Venus energy in a natal chart, it can be used to manipulate, possess, use and abuse, or it can be used to nature yourself and others.
To grow, to balance, to stimulate, to set free and to revere-admire and to love, care, heal and manage yourself, so you can authentically love life and the people in it.

What is the role of Venus in astrology? continued
Venus represents all that is feminine, relational, intimate and loving, material and spiritual, and covers the whole spectrum of love from physical, psychological, friendly to unconditional and self-love.
In a female chart, or in the natal chart of someone who identifies more with their feminine energy, Venus shows how they feel about their femaleness and womanly ways.
Venus in a male or someone who identifies more with masculine energy natal chart indicates the type of person you are attracted to and the type of people you are attracted to.
As we continue to revert back to our origins, we are starting to recognise that all people have masculine and feminine energy within them, which can be expressed in traditionally masculine or feminine ways.
Or any one of the varieties of binary or non-binary gender expressions from androgynous to genderqueer and all other gender and personality expressions.
So Venus energy is not only about the people we attract or desire but is about how we reconcile the masculine and feminine parts of our own individual psyches, allowing ourselves to be both our own inner masculine and feminine lovers.
Marrying the fe- with the male of our individual psyches, becoming whole within, so we can share this wholeness with those we attract without.

The zodiac sign Venus and the house Venus is in and the aspects Venus makes to the other planets, houses, and zodiac signs in your natal chart. Indicates your romantic and feminine love energy, how you give and seek commitment, your inner values, your lusts, compulsions.
As well as showing the ways your love nature can evolve and bloom and the experiences that will come your way to help you expand your love nature.
Venus energy aims to help you grow from seeking external love, the disappoints you face through your venus experiences.
Calls you to heal your inner void by sorting through your unhealed emotional and psychological wounds so that you can develop self-love and understanding to find your inner wholeness.
Ultimately Venus energy gravitates us via our attention to beauty, art, harmony, possessions, lust, commitment, passing fashions, flings, hookups, and “the ones” and the recognition and unlocking of our inner creative energy experience the divine feminine and masculine.
Venus also indicates your attitude towards personal possessions, money, how you seek comfort, social and artistic values; Venus shows what a person wants for themselves, how much they can enjoy intimacy, connection and appreciate the broad spectrum of life experiences.
In the realms of all things pleasurable, social, entertainment, intimate, Venus shows the magnetic pull of the experiences you attract to you via its motions, zodiac sign and the house it is in.
Through the experiences Venus, gratification energy, Venus acts as a magnet that brings to you, helping you build up self-worth and encourage creativity in relationships; Venus represents love in all its forms, emotional, psychological, spiritual, and unconditional.
What is the role of Venus in astrology?
Self-love is the key goal of Venus energy
The quality of your self-love and care represents the quality of the people you attract; the level of your recognition of your self worth determines if you accept or reject the people and situations that are sent to you.
Venus gives you the opportunity to keep or discard the experiences and connections it sends to you; this is why working through your emotional blockages and psychological traumas is important throughout your lifespan.
A lifelong practice of personal development and getting support from helplines, therapists or a counsellor, or an alternative healer like a holistic astrological life coach, can help you manage your inner turmoil.
Some people will hurt us; this lifetime, but they are people who can give us what we deserve, but if we do not manage our emotional and psychological health, we will miss these people.
Because we come to believe that we are not good enough or we deserve to be alone.
This is not the truth; it’s our thoughts and not letting go of repeating our past relationships, which keeps us repeating them.
What does Venus symbolise in astrology?
Venus symbol is the circle and the cross, representing the higher (the spiritual-higher consciousness) and lower expression (material) of Venus energy.
Marrying all sides of your personality to find wholeness because authentic completion is found within yourself and not in external people, nor Products and services.
Hence why, it can be hard to fill your inner void, for we are programmed to look for wholeness without when it can only be found within.
The symbol of Venus represents the triumph of spirit (circle) over material existence (the cross), but this doesn’t mean that we must deny the urges of the flesh.
The Egyptians symbol for Venus was the ankh, which is said to represent the key of life, by unifying the higher and lower nature the material and the ethereal-lofty.
By linking your feminine and masculine nature that is represented by Venus’s rulership of Taurus- yin feminine energy and Libra- yang masculine energy, the ankh was said to ensure life after death, so many Egyptians were buried with the symbol.
All planets and zodiac sign has feminine and masculine- positive and negative expressions.
Life is about balance, represented in Venus’s rulership over Taurus (the bull) and Libra (the scales); everything is good in moderation, but it’s often when you go to excess that trouble happens.
Still, being nice and good have consequences because, at times, if someone crosses your boundaries, you must defend yourself and not allow others to walk over you.
Even if you think you love them, being nice when others have hurt you, especially if they keep doing it, is not always the best way;.
You don’t need to go raging bull on them (yano lose it and become bat shit crazy), but always being crouching tiger ( letting them walk over you) will ensure their impolite behaviour continues towards you.
Materiality is just as crucial as spirituality; we must have a home or a place to sleep, we must have food, and we need money to pay for this food
it is only when we hoard earth resources and cause others to live in poverty the imbalance happens.
If we shared earth resources fairly then, they would be no external poverty- period, but to cure material poverty, we need to work through the lack – scarcity mentality and behaviours each human has in them.
So we must have external experiences to help us uncover and refine our emotional nature.
If the human body didn’t help us discover our feeling nature, with tears, gut feelings – yano like when you view an image, see an action or hear words that make you feel sick to the stomach and other bodily sensations.
Then we would be able to uncover our higher-spiritual nature, so it’s not about giving up the material for the ethereal, but refining our material- animal nature, using our higher consciousness as a compass to stop unethical actions and prejudices.
Venus energy helps us appreciate music, nature and other beautiful things and art; through opening up to creativity via expression and appreciation, we expand our feeling nature.
Empathy starts with self-love by taming your lower (animal) nature as depicted in the strength card and giving the same rights we wish for ourselves to others.
For when you truly love yourself, this is how you can have authentic compassion for others, regardless of their beliefs, skin colour, sexual orientation and all other dividing factors.
The highest expression of Venus energy knows what and who is good for you and what is not, seeing what will bring you happiness and inner contentment and doing all you can to get it. Having a foundation of self-love allows you to recover quickly from relationships setbacks, as you always have your inner sense of self to fall back on.
The quality of what we attract and accept in our lives is connected to the potent magnetic pull of Venus; if you keep attracting toxic and self-degrading relationships, you need to reevaluate. How you see your worth and value, with compassion, understanding, doing all you can to build up your self-esteem and love, for the external reflects the internal.
Yes, we can say things like all people are bad, liars etc., but why do we entrain such people? Why repeatedly allow them into your life? These questions must be answered, what is going on within you that allows you to repeatedly allow undesirable people into your life?
Are you bored? Lonely? Trying to escape? Do you not like spending time alone?
Are they a distraction from dealing with your emotional, spiritual and psychological issues?
Do you think you are not worthy of love? Why? Is it because your parents or past lovers withheld their love from you?
It is essential to know that we consciously or subconsciously attract people, possessions, and experiences into our lives because we need to learn something from them.
Without these connections or situations, we would not attract them, so there is always something to learn from each experience.
Because even when you think you have dealt with or learned a specific lesson, internally, they may still be something to learn, as we humans deceive ourselves the most.
The planetary energy of Venus gives you the ability to attract what gives you enjoyment and contentment, so you have to answer what is it that gives you pleasure? Is it pain? Is that why you keep attracting painful relationships?
Balance and harmony
Venus is a planet of balance, contrast and evaluation; due to its rulership of Taurus and the second house and Libra, the 7th house, Venus wants you to objectively and subjectively think about your intimate connections and relationships in general.
Weighing up their usefulness and asking yourself, honestly, what you get out of your relationships, especially if you keep attracting toxic ones.
This is why it’s important to introspect and question what you want out of any relationship before getting into them, so as you reach your late 20s- to late ’30s, you know exactly what you want.
As you learnt from your past, what you won’t accept in a relationship so that you can create intimate relationships with clear foundations and boundaries.
Rethinking your desires and the personal, spiritual, psychological, and emotional cost of obtaining what you really or think you need.
Did your Venus rise before or after the Sun? What does that mean? Are you direct or receptive in your quest for intimacy
Venus is either a morning or evening star; it rises before (morning star), or after (evening star) the Sun and is never more than 48 degrees behind or in front of the Sun.
Because of this, the aspects it can make to the Sun is limited.
How Venus interacts with the Sun at your time and day of birth gives significant information on how the energies of Venus will operate in your life.
Venus is never more than two signs away from the Sun; if your Venus comes before your sun sign, this means Venus is placed in a different sign to your natal sun sign, for example, Venus in Cancer, Sun in Leo, it is called a morning star.
Venus morning star- Venus Lucifer
This gives you a more direct approach in your relationships, you like to take charge and go for what you want, but your attractions are mainly based on physical appearance and not mental or spiritual.
My darling and late Dane Rudhyar calls Venus rising before the sun “Venus Lucifer, bearer of the light” because those with morning star Venus are more naïve, spontaneous and enthusiastic in Venusians pursuits and general optimism for the future.
Venus morning star people often learn love lessons the hard way, from their own experience, rather than the wisdom or advice of others.
If you were born when Venus is a morning star, it’s crucial to deal with disappointments in love after each occurrence, or at least periodically. Because if you do not, you can become disillusioned with love, leading to you becoming closed, off, stoic and cold in your emotional aspirations and expression.
We humans often just close down our emotional body after many disappointments; however, this is not the true point or endgame of your negative experiences. Which occur to show you the inner areas you need to work on and your urgent need for self-love and care.
In summary, venus morning star- Lucifer people are more adolescent-naive, spur-of-the-moment-impulsive, have blind faith in love, which makes them yano lovers of this song, or at least its sentiment of it may not work out but ill give it a good try anyway.
But they can often rush into things without weighing up the repercussions of their actions; they often go after who and what they want.
Venus Hesperus is when the speed of Venus slows down, in comparison to its speed in its morning star phase
If Venus comes after your sun sign, so Venus raised after the Sun, for example, Sun in Scorpio, Venus in Capricorn, then you are likely to wait for the other person to make the first move.
You prefer to let your partner take charge in the bedroom, at less at first; as we all know, Capricorns are undercover kinks.
Evening star Venus allows you to make deeper connections more easily, but after time, you don’t jump right in, although you’re more receptive than proactive, focusing more on stability and authentic emotional connection.
Venus evening star people are more controlled, introverted, and not as intense in general as venus morning star people, at least at first; they can be more private about their emotions.
Although they may experience emotions intensely, they find it hard to share their raw, authentic emotions with themselves and others. Evening morning star people can find it hard to get over emotional setbacks, and you can ruminate in relationship breakups for years, often shutting down for life after one failed love attempt.
Venus evening star summary, you are more likely to be more strategic, calculated and rational about love decisions; although you can be reserved, you operate best when you experience with others and are social.
No one is saying to turn into venus morning star but, do not close yourself off to love, as in doing this, you are shutting down your full access to your self-love and total wholeness. Heal yourself first, then share your completeness.
You have a real need to want and belong but belong to yourself first.
Also, try and break out of your cultural or nations expectations of love, and get in tune with your own authentic love language, desires and needs.
Guard against being possessive of those you love, as yano most lovers become exes, this is a fact of life, but what is yours, truly will be yours, if you do not cling, get over your fears
What does it mean if Venus is in the same sign of your Sun, one sign apart or two signs apart from your Sun?
Venus same sign of sun sign
The Sun in astrology represents self-integration, ego, personality, uniqueness and core principles; Venus in astrology shows how you seek pleasure, love, comfort, security- and balance due to Taurus’s and Libras influence.
If Venus and Your sun sign are in the same sign, i.e. your Sun and Venus are both in Leo, Aquarius or Taurus, etc.…
What you seek from relationships is the same as the traits of your sun sign, so if your Sun is in Aries, you will seek relationships that are passionate, emotionally demonstrative enterprising with a slight competitive edge that can be based on impulse.
If your Sun is in cancer, you may seek nurturing, resourceful, empathetic and protective relationships.
If your Sun and Venus are in Aquarius, you may seek detached, idealistic, independent, and unconventional relationships.
Venus is one sign away from the natal Sun
If Venus is one sign away from your Sun, then the modality (modality/ fixed/mutable) and element of the signs (water/earth/air or fire), whether masculine or feminine, will be different.
For example, if you have Sun in Scorpio ( feminine-yin/ water fixed sign) and Venus in Sagittarius ( masculine-yang/ fire/Mutable sign), your sun sign and Venus sign have little in common on the surface. Still, all signs ultimately in the zodiac, as well as houses, are interlinked.
But that’s another article when Venus is one sign away from your sign, it will think differently, react differently and want different things; your Scorpio sun will want intense, possessive, secretive types of relationships.
Yet your Venus in Sagittarius will want emotional and physical freedom, idealistic, less deep romantic liaisons, sag may wish to play, Scorpio will want to stay.
If your Sun is in Leo and Venus in Virgo, Leo may seek forceful displays of affection, passionate liaisons, seeking to boss around the partner(s).
Venus in Virgo wants orderly and calmer, emotionally withdrawn types of relationships and seeks more perfection.
Having a different sun and Venus nature is not bad; it means you will have a lot of fun trying out different romantic relationships until you figure what you want; variety is the spice of life, after all.
It just means you may go through a lot of confusion figuring what you want; in the end, once you know all aspects of yourself and integrate them, you can create powerful, intimate bonds. Think symbiosis when two different entities come together to work as one.
Venus is two signs away from your sun sign
If your Venus is two signs away from your Sun, for example, your Sun is in an earth sign ( Taurus/ Virgo/ Capricorn), or a water sign ( cancer/Scorpio or Pisces).
Your Sun in an earth sign will want you to look for more practical romantic connections. Whereas Venus in a water sign will want you to look for more emotional or spiritual bond.
So if you have Sun in Capricorn, you will be more reserved in your emotional displays, but Venus is Pisces you will seek more artistic, emphatic, and artistic connections.
When the Sun is two signs apart from your Venus, this gives you the opportunity to create unique relationships based on deep understanding and willing compromise, allowing you to make connections that often have the opposites attract element to them.
