♡ VENUS THROUGH THE SIGNS PT. 3 ♡
the orbit of venus, like that of mercury, lies between us and the sun. venus is known, astronomically, as the second inferior planet, and it can never be more than 48 degrees from the sun as seen from the earth. it will therefore share the same sign as the sun or be in one of the two signs on either side of it. for instance, in a chart with a gemini sun sign, venus will be in aries, taurus, gemini with the sun, cancer, or leo.
venus influences the way in which we relate to other people, both socially and economically. our attitudes toward money and possessions are also the concern of this planet.
VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS
although considerable enthusiasm and lively emotions will be warmly expressed toward partners, the sagittarian need for independence may make the individual loath to be too tied to one person. the duality present in this sign will be evident, and more than one relationship may be experienced at any given time. certainly, love will be enjoyed, and the subject will make life rewarding and exhilarating for the partner, both in bed and out. in turn, the partner needs to respond well not only sexually, but also intellectually. eventually, a philosophical, idealistic element will develop and have its effect on the partner, doing a great deal to instill a more meaningful expression. however, intellectual rapport and friendship, as well as the willingness to enjoy sex, are essential. this is a lively friend who will make life fun. the attitude toward finance may be “easy come, easy go,” possibly with the emphasis on “go”!
LIBRA SUN - SAGITTARIUS VENUS
the subject may not seem to care about love, but they need just as much romance as others. this placing helps rationalize the feelings, however, and the need for intellectual rapport and good friendship, as well as pure romance, is very healthy. this combination is excellent for friendship, easing any libran tendency to take too much from other people. professional financial help is advisable.
SCORPIO SUN - SAGITTARIUS VENUS
this influence lightens the steamy, rather heavy scorpio attitude toward love and sex, adding a need for intellectual rapport. much will be expected of partners, but much will be contributed. scorpio jealousy can clash with the sagittarian independence, and a resolution of this conflict is important. here is a friend who needs to share interests and challenges. investments will be enjoyed, but a gambling spirit should be controlled.
SAGITTARIUS SUN - SAGITTARIUS VENUS
sagittarians are the hunters of the zodiac, so when venus joins the sun in this sign, a lot of attention is given to the emotional chase. fickleness must be countered. all the attributes of venus in sagittarius (see above) will be present. if neptune is also in sagittarius, there will be idealism and romantic reverie. money may easily slip through the subject’s fingers.
CAPRICORN SUN - SAGITTARIUS VENUS
although the loyalty and faithfulness of capricorn is less evident, this is a good placing for those with rather serious capricorn qualities, helping them enjoy life and warming their cool emotions. there will be less social climbing in the love life, but a good mind will be deemed important, and the partner will spur on the capricorn ambitions and aspirations. friends must share demanding interests. money-making is less important than for other capricorn groups.
AQUARIUS SUN - SAGITTARIUS VENUS
the aquarian spirit will be sympathetic to the independence of venus in sagittarius, while the fire of that sign will warm the distant but dynamic attraction of aquarius. nevertheless, the liking for individuality will not encourage even the most romantic aquarian to rush into a long-term commitment. sexual experiment is usual. there is a wide circle of friends who often share philanthropic or intellectual interests. money will be spent erratically, often on silly, trendy things.
VENUS IN CAPRICORN
although the worldly ambition associated with capricorn does not easily blend with the venusian need to relate and love, when the planet is placed in this sign, it gives someone who will once committed want to remain faithful and constant. because of the differing characteristics of the sign and principles of the planet, there can be inhibition in the full expression of feeling, so it is important that, while there may be no desire to gush with affirmations of love, the partner really knows how much they are loved. sometimes, in order to make worldly progress, a partner will be chosen as a status symbol of some kind. however, true, constant love should be the aim, with the capricorn ambition geared toward joint development of the partnership, materially and emotionally. here is the faithful friend who likes to create an impression. money is spent in a calculated way, often to show off, yet a careful streak will also be evident.
SCORPIO SUN - CAPRICORN VENUS
this links the deep intensity and passion of scorpio with the cool calculation of capricorn. here are people who will get what they want but may not consider a partner’s feelings carefully or sympathetically. they are demanding friends who will encourage others in their ambitions. ruthlessness in all areas of life must be countered. business and moneymaking abilities are excellent.
SAGITTARIUS SUN - CAPRICORN VENUS
this calms the passion of sagittarius, and the love life is taken seriously. the subject is thoughtful and fairly constant (more so than other members of this sun sign), but there can be conflict between the sagittarian need for freedom of expression within a relationship and the capricorn urge to do the right thing. here is a friend who enjoys demanding challenges. financial growth can occur through clever and calculated risk-taking.
CAPRICORN SUN - CAPRICORN VENUS
faithfulness and loyalty join with a reserved expression of feeling. the characteristics of venus in capricorn (see above) will be very evident. ambition for material progress must not be so great that the partner and children are neglected as a result.
AQUARIUS SUN - CAPRICORN VENUS
the very independent aquarian lifestyle will cause a reluctance to be committed to an emotional relationship. the romantic tendencies often present in this sun sign may be suppressed. the impression given is cool and distant, but there are magnetic powers of attraction. here is a good, faithful friend but someone who will be difficult to know really well. the management of finances may or may not be good, so a balance is needed.
PISCES SUN - CAPRICORN VENUS
the blending of earth (capricorn) and water (pisces) is excellent, because venus will help steady the burst of piscean emotion. if a practical approach to love can be achieved, there should be no conflict, but the coolness of venus must be recognized as a positive factor, helping channel and give an element of caution and common sense in this sphere of life. here is a kind friend who will offer plenty of sensible suggestions when called upon to help. there will be some fiscal ability but, if mercury is also in pisces, professional financial advise is to be recommended.
VENUS IN AQUARIUS
this placing contributes more magnetic, movie star glamor than any other. admiration will be thoroughly enjoyed, but conflict can arise between the need for a relationship and the sacrifices that must be made accordingly. at times, these may seem too great, and sometimes a partnership is desired but a partner isn’t. conversely, there is plenty of enjoyable romance here. the individual who uses other areas of their chart (sun, moon, and ascending signs in particular) and resolves the complexities of this placing will be able to love with idealism and fidelity. nevertheless, the feelings are coolly expressed and the emotional level must be finally judged by other planetary influences. if there is an aspect between venus and mars, sexual expression and enjoyment may be increased. here is a very kind and helpful friend. they are usually good with money, but too much may be spent on glitzy, expensive clothes and items for the home.
SAGITTARIUS SUN - AQUARIUS VENUS
this considerably increases the sagittarian love of independence yet cools the ardent passions of that sign. however, there is increased fidelity once the subject is committed emotionally. the sagittarian love of the chase and its challenge is carefully disguised. this placing can also glamorize the usually very casual sagittarian image. this is a rewarding, warm-hearted friend who will give plenty of positive encouragement. financial risks may be enjoyed and taken erratically, without careful thought.
CAPRICORN SUN - AQUARIUS VENUS
this placing can make the aspiring capricorn type seem rather haughty. budding relationships may be damaged because the subject feels that no prospective partner is good enough. this may be an excuse to delay commitment and the full expression of emotion, which can be difficult. (the moon’s influence may help.) here is a faithful and helpful yet unpredictable friend. financially, caution may clash with a desire to live it up.
AQUARIUS SUN - AQUARIUS VENUS
the subject has dynamic and magnetic powers of attraction but may be very difficult to know really well. independence is necessary, but love and admiration are also needed. all the traits described for venus in aquarius apply (see above). expensive items may be hard to resist.
PISCES SUN - AQUARIUS VENUS
piscean emotion is controlled here, and there is also a good ability to distance the self from the feelings, with the individual relying on intuition. look, too, for indications of practical common sense. the image is enhanced with originality - and too much sparkle at times. great kindness and charity often result in personal sacrifices. this is a superb, if occasionally forgetful, friend. professional financial advise is recommended unless business ability is shown elsewhere.
ARIES SUN - AQUARIUS VENUS
here, the fiery arian passion is quenched by the cool detachment of venus, but the arian need for independence will be complementary. the desire for a long-term relationship may clash with the wish to be fancy-free. a compromise must be reached, helped by a sympathetic partner. here is a very lively friend who is enthusiastic about joint interests. financial flair may be present, but hastiness when investing could cause problems.
VENUS IN PISCES
the emotional level is greatly increased, and the individual is entirely swayed by emotion in all spheres of life. the subject can all too easily be taken advantage of, and as a result usually learns the hard way, often tending to make the same mistakes (especially emotional ones) time and time again. look for other indications of a practical approach and rational outlook - mercury in capricorn or aquarius will help. the need to express love and affection is powerful and sincere, albeit sentimental at times. care is needed that self-deception or a tendency not to face facts is countered. parents of a child with this placing must firmly encourage truthfulness. taking the easy way out of difficult situations is common, especially in relationships. self-confidence may be undermined, especially with regard to the powers of attraction. giving to charity can become a fault, leading to cash flow problems. this is a tender and caring friend.
CAPRICORN SUN - PISCES VENUS
this warms the capricorn heart and softens the attitude toward partners. social climbing is less pronounced, and time will be spent enjoying relationships and children rather than worrying about material matters. capricorn characteristics will counter the gullible emotion of pisces, adding common sense to the extreme fluidity of the piscean emotion. here is a practical and sympathetic friend. in financial affairs, and particularly investments, the intuition should be followed.
AQUARIUS SUN - PISCES VENUS
this adds to the kind, humanitarian, and charitable qualities of aquarius and warms the emotions, making the subject more responsive and less distant. emotional involvement is increased, yet piscean emotion will blend with aquarian independence. this is an understanding and sympathetic friend. money may be handled badly - advise professional help.
PISCES SUN - PISCES VENUS
there is a great deal that is beautiful about this placing, but the individual must realize that their emotions can dominate all too easily. too much kindness and sympathy may exist, plus a tendency to become a doormat. sacrifices may be made to the considerable detriment of the subject. all indications described for venus in pisces (see above) will apply very strongly. financial problems can occur through excessive generosity.
ARIES SUN - PISCES VENUS
here, the fire and water emotions are combined, but the fire of aries gives a natural assertiveness so that inner strength will be added to warmth, kindness, and passion. the placing softens the selfishness of aries and adds understanding and sympathy. there is great sexual exuberance, making for an enthusiastic partner. both partners and friends will be given positive encouragement. money-making ideas can sometimes be harmed by an overly enterprising spirit. look for other indications of practical common sense.
TAURUS SUN - PISCES VENUS
this is a delightful combination, giving a gentle but nonetheless deep and meaningful expression of feelings. taurean possessiveness is less likely to be a stumbling block, but emotional security is important. the emotion of venus is controlled, creating an individual who is a very caring, passionate, and sensual lover. too much money can be spent on creature comforts.
