Venus is a benefic planet that rules over the two most sought-after things in life – love, and money. If you want to get technical, money and love since the second house is our possessions and what we value, while the seventh house is our relationships. Romantic ones, not platonic ones. Friendship is the eleventh house.
But, back to what we value. Depending on the aspects made to Venus and its placement within your birth chart, as well as the sign and potential planets in the second house, what we value can be construed as a nice way of saying someone is materialistic. Say that to a Taurus and learn the hard way why Taurus’s symbol is a bull. But I digress. Venus and the signs it rules (Taurus and Libra) are some of the few placements that give us an appreciation for the arts, the other being Neptune and Pisces. Personally, I find Venus more useful; it doesn’t cover everything in a rose-colored fog the way Neptune does.
My third house is in Libra, which is Gemini’s house and whose ruling planet is Mercury, and it gave me a love of words and reading. I had no idea it would transition into writing, it was something I had never considered I could do or that I would love. When I’m not doubting myself at least. My point in all of this? Use your Venus to find what you love, even if you think its something you won’t be good at or people will mock you for. By the way, fuck those people. Anyone who’s shitty to someone for going after what they want is just envious of the courage they wish they had, which is an unacknowledged, universal truth in my opinion.
Anyway, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
