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.
