Venus is never more than 47 degrees from the Sun, taking approximately 7 months to orbit the Zodiac and spending, on average, 19 days in each sign. Venus is all about pleasure - especially with someone else. The sign in which Venus falls in your Natal Destiny Chart is known as your Love Sign. Your Love Sign defines what you love and how you love it. Venus often turns Retrograde (backwards) - having a negative effect on your love life.

In mythology, Venus was the Roman goddess of love (the Greek goddess Aphrodite). There are two accounts of her birth - that she was either the daughter of Jupiter or the daughter of Uranus. Although married to Hephaestus (the god of fire) she was really in love with Mars - their affair bore several children, including Eros, the personification of love. The Tarot card associated with Venus is The Empress.

Venus Glyph The glyph for Venus shows the cross of matter surmounted by the circle of spirit, signifying that through the union of the four elements (Fire, Earth, Water and Air) life can be transformed from matter into spirit Venus

In a Birth Chart, Venus influences the way you relate to others both socially and economically, so can influence your attitude to love and money; Venus also indicates what you give in love.

The sign Venus occupied at the time of your birth shows how you set out to attract others; what you expect of love; what you are like in a relationship; how you get on with others; how you react when you feel short-changed; your sense of style.

The house Venus occupied at the time of your birth shows in what area of life you can find fulfillment; where you seek pleasure; the common ground you look for in the people you meet; where your desires may be thwarted; your creative potential. Venus is generally beneficial to the planets it aspected at the time of your birth.

In a Synastry Chart, Venus indicates what you are willing to offer the partnership and what role romantic love plays in the relationship.

In both cases, Venus is a feminine sign and works most powerfully from Taurus and Libra and the 2nd and 7th Houses of Emotional & Financial Security and Partnerships respectively.
