Venus in the Complete Horoscope
The Power of Love in Classical Astrology
The pleasureful creative ability
seeking joy and delight,
finding soft solutions, gentle turns.
Venus is the second planet from the sun. Since it moves inside of Earth's orbit, we see it as following the sun around the Zodiac - never more than 48° from it.
Venus in the ZodiacHere are short descriptions of how each Zodiac sign influences Venus, your pleasureful desires, when that's where it is in your natal chart.
Taurus brings enjoyment of simple things and of pleasing the senses.
Gemini brings playfulness and a delight in erotic adventures.
Cancer brings a capacity to play on the emotions of others, to charm, please and delight.
Leo brings great charm that seduces others, and a delight in oneself.
Virgo brings a fine sense for detail and a capacity to handle complicated things.
Libra brings loyalty in any partnership, and a talent for joining with others.
Scorpio brings an attraction for the bizarre and a talent for fascinating others.
Sagittarius brings delight in keeping a distance and talent for visual arts.
Capricorn brings a capacity to easily get things done, and technical skills.
Aquarius brings inspired thoughts and great ideas.
Pisces brings warm affection for just about everyone and everything.
KeywordsHere are the twelve Zodiac signs, and keywords for the character they give to Venus, i.e. your pleasureful desires:
RulerVenus rules over both Libra and Taurus, which means that it tends to be the most obvious and enforced in those signs. It may be regarded as exalting in Cancer and Virgo, but there is no astrological consensus about that. It is not really weakened in any Zodiac sign, because of its own beneficial capacity, but it might be slightly less suited for Aries and Sagittarius, maybe also for Pisces.

Planet ageEach of the heavenly bodies represents a period in your life of about seven years. In the case of Venus it is the years of puberty, because of its connection to love and the erotic aspects. That's approximately from 14 to 21 years of age.
The position of Venus in your horoscope reveals what that period of your life is like, generally speaking. This also means that the erotic experiences you have at that age to a large extent form your sexual and erotic preferences for life.
