Venus in Astrology: Planet of Love, Romance, and Luxury: In Vedic Astrology, there are 9 planets, 12 houses, and 27 nakshatras or stars. Each planet has a unique signification. And this significance behaves in various ways in every birth chart. Today I will be sharing some mysteries about planet Venus, and how to see the impact of Venus in your own horoscope.
Venus is the most passionate and romantic planet. It represents beauty, luxury, fragrance, aesthetics, fine arts, ornaments, and jewelry. So while analyzing a birth chart, Venus’s position will give details about the person’s preferences, likes, and dislikes, relationship skills, beauty, and charm in voice and face. In the male’s chart, Venus speaks about the spouse. The romantic compatibility can be checked by looking at the Venus position in the chart.
Venus rules two zodiac signs, Taurus and Libra. Now Taurus is the earthy, fixed, and second lord of the natural zodiac. So it states about family, speech, accumulated wealth, and finances. Then it also represents a sense of values and traditions, stability and productivity, and methodology.
Libra is the airy, movable, and 7th lord of the natural zodiac. And this signifies, balance, harmony, justice, and pleasure. Libra is the 7th lord of partnerships, therefore it gets the rulership of love and relationship in one’s life.
Therefore to analyze Venus, you have to see the strength of two zodiac signs Taurus and Libra plus the condition of Venus in the birth charts and divisional charts. as well. Then Venus gets exalted in Pisces and is debilitated in Virgo.
Now let’s understand how Venus works in 12 zodiac signs.
The position of Venus will give different results to 12 different zodiac signs. In my view sign only indicates certain characteristics or origin of the event. But the result is always presented by the star lord. So it is important to check the star lord position and houses ruled by that particular planet.
Every Nakshatra is ruled by a planet, so let’s see the result of Venus in 12 different signs, in different nakshatras to get the overview of Venus in your horoscope.
When Venus is in the impulsive, dynamic, and energetic sign of Aries, here your beauty, grace and charm will be there but it takes the dress of a warrior. The signs always say about the environment or the dress.
And then check the nakshatra. In the Aries sign, there is the involvement of Ashwini (Ketu) Bharani (Venus), and Kritika(Sun) Nakshatra. (This information you can get in the horoscope software). Here the star lord will decide the results. For example, if Venus is in the star of the Sun (Kritika) and the Sun is in the 11th house. Then Venus will give gains, authority, and richness in your life.
In my view, Venus is the planet of love and affection. And Aries is a fiery energy and completely different from Venus air sign Libra. But let’s understand Venus as a beautiful and creative lady, and visits the commander’s house. But since Venus is a benefic planet, so here grace and charm bless the sign it is posited. So the planet of pleasure, music, dance, and arts teaches this warrior, the art of love, friendship, and relationship.
This means even though Venus is an inimical sign of Mars but still it will maintain its beauty, creativity, and romantic nature and collaborate with the fiery signs to move and dance in her elegant way.
When Venus is in its own sign of Taurus that signifies values and traditions, stability and productivity, and methodology. So beauty and luxury seeker is comfortable in his house, therefore it will give all the attributes Taurus sign craves.
And then check the nakshatra. In the Taurus sign, there is the involvement of Kritika( Sun), Rohini (Moon), and Mrigshira (Mars). Here the star lord will decide the results. For example, if venus is in Mrighshira, the star of Mars, and if Mars is in the 2nd house of family and accumulated wealth. Then here Venus will bring abundance, stability, and financial prosperity to your life.
Also, Venus governs luxury, artistic skills, sensory pleasures, beautiful homes, branded clothes, fragrances, and romance in one’s life. Hence if Venus is strong in your horoscope, you will get all the things signified by Venus. But if Venus is posited in the 6th, and 8th house then it gives issues related to money and relationship.
When Venus is in the sign of Gemini that represents your conscious mind, flexibility, communication, networking, intellectuality, analytical thinking, and youthfulness of mind. So here beauty and artistic planet get linked with the calculative planet. And this can be understood as grace with intellect.
And then check the nakshatra. In the Gemini sign, there is the involvement of Mrigashira (Mars), Ardra (Rahu), Punarvasu (Jupiter). Here the star lord will decide the results. For example, if venus is in Ardra star of Rahu and Rahu is in the 10th house of work, name, and fame. Then Venus will give Rahu effects, in the work area.
Also, Venus and Rahu if links with career houses then the most exquisite things related to technology, luxurious office, and the best performance can be expected. It will bring affluence and financial prosperity to your life.
When Venus is in the sign of Cancer that signifies love, nurturing, feeling for support and maintaining, sensitivity, and conservatism. So when luxury, beauty, and one with aesthetic sense links with caretaker and nurturer, then this combination makes the spouse beautiful but very emotional as well. Not to forget this is the combination of two female planets, so more sensitive and affectionate.
Then check the nakshatra. In the Cancer sign, there is the involvement of Punarvasu (Jupiter), Pushaya (Saturn), Ashlesha (Mercury). If Venus is in Pushya Nakshatra of Saturn, Here the star lord will decide the results. For example, if Venus is in Pushya star of Saturn and Saturn is posited in the 6th house of job, service, and mundane activities. So Venus touch will be beautiful and relaxing, 6th house shows service activity, and Saturn will make the person work hard.
Thus here the planet of love and romance is in the watery sign of Cancer. Cancer is the 4th lord of the natural zodiac, so it rules comfort, real estate, and family life. Therefore in my view when love and romance seeker links with nurturer and pacifier, true love is formed. Such a combination is seen, when soul mates and childhood friends get into a relationship.
When Venus is in the sign of Leo that represents authority, dominance, egotism, vitality, and creativity. Then here beauty and romance are getting linked with dominance and authority. Thus it can make the person critical and arrogant.
Next check the nakshatra. In the Leo sign, there is the association of Magha (Ketu), Purva Phaguni (Venus), Uttar Phaguni (Sun). If Venus is in the star of the Sun(Uttarphaguni) then the planet of love, romance, and artistic features gets linked with authority and dominance. So attraction with authority and house position will highlight the activity.
The house position determines the activity. So if Venus in 1st house and Leo sign plus sun star, then it points towards personal interest in enhancing physical presence and enjoys luxury, leisure, shiny things, and comfort. Also since Leo is the 5th sign of the natural zodiac, therefore it also states happiness in extravagance and enjoyment, and entertainment.
When Venus is in the sign of Virgo that represents perfection, criticality, analytics, calculation, service, sense for details, and practicality. Venus in Virgo is debilitated. Now, this position states that you have taste for beauty and romance but there is a calculative mind behind the relationship. And Love and passion do not like rationalizing and a logical mind.
The nakshatras associated with this sign are UttarPhaguni (Sun), Hasta (Moon), Chitra (Mars). If Venus is in the Chitra, star of Mars, and Mars is in 2nd house of finance then beauty and luxury will get linked with aggressive, argumentative, and warrior-like planet Mars.
Here you have to understand the results considering the house position of Venus. Therefore Luxury and abundance in the family but Mars’s harshness can give a rough speech and dominating character.
In Tarot Cards, Venus in Virgo is viewed as Nine of Pentacles. This states a beautiful lady in abundance, and prosperity. Even in separation, she has maintained beautiful surroundings. This declares material prosperity plus she is smiling, pleasant but unattached, deserted, or single. She does not need a relationship.
It also states cheerfulness and contentment in peaceful solitude. She has worked hard to attain this financially stable condition. And now she has transformed her environment into a place of joy and happiness. Thus this position of Venus believes in physical or prosperity due to Virgo a fixed and earthy sign plus calculative planet association.
When Venus is in the Libra sign, it represents balance, harmony, justice, and pleasure. Now, this is the Moolatrikona sign of Venus, so here it is considered very strong. In my view, Venus in its own sign makes the person fortunate to get the finest of worldly things. Here this planet of luxury and romance is in a comfortable state, and so all sensory things are easily available to such person.
The nakshatras associated with this sign are Chitra (Mars), Swati (Rahu), Vishakha (Jupiter). Now if Venus is in Swati, Rahu nakshatra. Then the planet of affection, fantasy, and aesthetic traits gets linked with the unpredictable planet, Rahu, who is never satisfied and always hungry for more. He wants to attain things in sinful ways through shortcuts.
And if Rahu is in the 8th house of pain and obstacles. Then this adds problems to the results of Venus. The 8th house association with Venus gives health issues, trouble to partner, and obstacles in ancestral wealth.
Here I would suggest that only the Libra sign, cannot give complete details, as a great astrologer says Venus is a silent killer, so analyze the position of Venus very carefully.
When Venus is in Scorpio, it indicates secrecy, mysticism, transformation, and pain., It’s mysterious, secretive, and linked with occult science, and even hidden sexual relations. The Scorpio sign in the horoscope states secrecy and hidden things, the person does not want to discuss.
Now a romantic and artistic planet that wants sensory pleasure is linked with Scorpio, the Mars energy. Here Mars plays a completely different role. It has the hidden and painful energy, which after giving a near-death experience, transforms the person.
The nakshatras associated with the Scorpio sign are Vishakha (Jupiter), Anuradha (Saturn), Jyeshta (Mercury). Now if Venus is in Vishakha, Jupiter nakshatra. Then the planet of affection, fantasy, and aesthetic traits gets linked with the most favorable and knowledgeable planet Jupiter. Then here the planet Venus is holding Jupiter’s energy. Jupiter is the karaka of ideologies, knowledge, wealth, and higher learning.
And if Jupiter is posited in the 6th house of job, then Venus will give service but Jupiter energy means, there is a higher educational background. And in the future, this Jupiter will give a high profile in the job. Thus here venus will give extravagance but in the work area.
When Venus is in Sagittarius, this sign is ruled by planet Jupiter. It represents the setting of goals, the scope of expanding worldwide, higher minds, and spiritual knowledge. Here a luxury and leisure seeker gets linked with the planet of wisdom. So it can make you tasteful and creative abut at the same time very knowledgable as well. The Sagittarius is the 9th lord of the natural zodiac, so in such cases, you get higher knowledge in the most expensive and elegant way.
The nakshatras associated with this sign are Moola (Ketu), Purva Asadha (Venus), and Uttara Asadha(Sun)Now if Venus is in Moola (Ketu )nakshatra. Then the planet of affection, fantasy, and aesthetic traits gets linked with the yogi and saint. And now you have to check the house position of Ketu to see the true color of Venus.
If Ketu is in the 4th house, then luxury home and mother’s love and comfort will be enjoyed by this person. The 4th house association with Venus gives the finest property, vehicle, and mother’s love.
When Venus is in Capricorn, this zodiac sign indicates work in a structured and strategic way. Here a beautiful and artistic planet takes the dress of a workaholic. So here the love and aesthetic sense can take a back seat. As here the focus is more on money and completing goals and collaborating. This position of Venus has no time for relationships, love, and romance.
The nakshatras associated with this sign Uttar Asadha (Sun), Sravana (Moon), and Dhanistha (Mars). Now if Venus is in Uttar Asadha, Sun nakshatra, then it can make one goal-oriented, but ego and authority will be added here.
The house position determines the activity. So if Venus in 10th house and Capricorn sign plus Sun star, then it points towards a beautiful work environment and authoritative profile. Here Venus will give luxury, the finest technology, and beautiful surroundings in the work area.
When Venus is in Aquarius, it indicates social welfare, originality, progressive attitude, and have higher goals for the betterment of society and humanity. The most sensuous and romantic planet takes the position of a social worker. So it will have to leave its tasteful and leisure-seeking attitude and move towards higher goals, and hide its passion from the world.
The nakshatras associated with this sign are Dhanistha (Mars), Satbisha (Rahu), Purva Bhadrapada (Venus). Now if Venus is in Satbisha nakshatra of Rahu. then Rahu element will destroy the passion and relations. Rahu is an obsessive planet and has a deceptive nature. It can betray and cheat in the relationship. So this tendency will make the beautiful planet a liar or hide its real vision or desire.
If Venus is in the 11th house, Aquarius sign and in Rahu star then it will gracefully and elegantly gain or fulfill its desires and that too in an unorthodox way.
When Venus is in Pisces, it indicates research, psychic depth, spirituality, empathy, and self-sacrifice. Here Venus is exalted. Perhaps this is the beautiful mansion of an elegant princess. She is in abundance and enjoying her life in doing research work, traveling, and giving donations.
The nakshatras associated with this sign are Purva Bhadrapada (Jupiter) Utarbhadra pada (Saturn) and Revati Mercury). If Venus is in Revati, mercury nakshatra, then it can give youthful character. So Venus if links with a playful planet, adds elegance and lightheartedness.
If Venus is in the 11th house, Pisces sign, and Mercury star, then it will give all material gains easily. Here the beauty and charm will be retained for long. This position is in fact the most favorable position for Venus. Here Venus will get the finest things, love, romance, and even enjoyment in life.
Venus is a Rajsic planet, so it signifies all material comfort and sensory pleasures. In the end, I would say that in Venus Dasha, one gets associated with all Venus things related to beauty and luxury. Also since it is a planet of love and relationship and wants sensory pleasures. So there is a chance sone gets into a relationship.
