Open Discussion: Making Your Venus Happy



Venus is the planet of pleasure and what we love. So it makes sense that a significant part of making ourselves happy is making our Venus happy. Therefore, during this open discussion, I’m interested in how you please your Venus. It can be by sign, house placement, or aspects. Synthesizing all of that can be a slightly tricky thing to understand. 

For instance, my Venus is in Virgo and also in the 8th House. I do think that my Virgo Venus is happiest when I’m being productive or cultivating some kind of order. I do notice how better I can often feel just by working away at something. Venus represents peace and engaging in work can bring me that peace. Since my Venus is in the 8th, it can be a work flow that is very consuming. It’s truly like everything else falls away and nothing else exists for me but what I’m working on. I do also really enjoy being able to use my intelligence (Virgo) to get to the bottom of things (8th House). Artistic types do rely heavily on their Venus in terms of the particular joy and beauty that they find in the creative process. For me, with Venus in Virgo in the 8th, it’s about creating that sense of intimacy, passion, and raw honesty and doing it in a specific, clear way. 

There are lots of different ways to make your Venus happy. She also rules our taste in clothes and, of course, what we love in relationships. Whatever the case may be, feel free to discuss what your Venus loves, what awakens her joy and affection. I wrote an article years ago on this blog talking about how whatever our Venus symbolizes needs to be honored and appreciated. I definitely still believe that. So, in this open discussion, let’s honor her!

The discussion is now closed for responses from me. Sorry if I didn't get to absolutely everyone. But, if I didn't, there's always next time!

  1. My Venus is also in 8th! In Gemini. I love chatting with my friends in a coffee shop and telling the bottom of our hearts. Actually I don't know what else I should do to make my Venus happy. Maybe we need a more detailed post about it Wayman ;)) Thank you!

    1. Haha, I did write a lengthy post about Venus in the 8th a couple of years ago, though. Maybe reading through it will help you please your Venus, if you haven't already read it.

  2. My venus is in Cancer in the 6th house. I am a workaholic and love feeling the sense of accomplishment. I am my work... I identify myself through my work. I'm not really sure how Cancer plays into it though, because I'm not an emotional person. In fact I'm more detached than emotional.

    1. It's a placement that makes you really channel your feelings into whatever tasks you're doing. I think that you will feel a lot better about yourself and a lot happier when you're keeping busy because it lets you work out your emotions.

  3. My Venus is in Leo and it's exactly conjunct my Sun. My Venus needs to love and be loved. Warmth and affection are extreme important. With my Venus being in the 10H, I need to be seen and appreciated for my work. I mostly do Lol

    1. Yes, the 10th House is an awesome place for Leo planets to be because they get to receive a lot of recognition. Leo energy makes a lot of sense in the 10th.

  4. Venus in Scorpio, I find my happiness researching the unknown. All things paranormal and mystery fascinate me, from ghosts to forensics.

  5. My Venus is in Gemini 9th house. And there is no aspect to my Venus from other planets. So i assume it makes my Venus kind of not so active in my life? or it's ''healthy'' on its own and able to suprise me at life.
    I care for my Venus by lots of conversations with friends, people about deep stuff in life - universe, soul feelings, anything beyond. Thats what makes me happy. Any kind of travels of course, nature itself. And i guess i feel more effective and really ok with myself when I am learning, digging deep at some subject. For better if the subject is anything but ocult-like, mistical some sort. Higher learning. Higher awarness.. [there comes my sun in 8th also i guess ]. And I do like to write. I write blog diary. That is how i can better express myself, by writing. not much of a talker though. I need those Gemini people in my life, who are joyful, adventurous, chatty and optimistic. Thats when my Venus shines :)

    1. Don't worry about your Venus being unaspected. I just think that planets without any aspects express themselves in a very straightforward way. It's kind of like a pure, textbook expression of that sign and house. So, you are very much a Gemini Venus and a Venus in the 9th, which is interesting because that is so contradictory, anyway, with the Gemini Venus being in Sagittarius' house.

  7. Venus conjunct Mars in Cancer in my 10th House, along with a cancer midheaven and Sun in Leo in the 10th, happiest when my reputation is as perfect as it can be (Libra Ascendent aswell)

  8. My Venus is in Capricorn in the 1st house (transiting Pluto is parked exactly on it right now) and it's also square to my Moon-Pluto conjunction in the 10th in Libra. Making my Venus happy is taking relationships sloooooowly. Establishing boundaries before and during relationships. For example, I've been seeing this guy for six months and only NOW have we decided that we can call it dating, but even then, it's not exclusive and it has no particular end purpose like the assumption of marriage later on.

    (There are other factors here, of course, like HIS Venus in Capricorn, my Aquarius Sun, and probably his Moon in the 11th house.)

    Regarding the Taurean side of Venus, that is, values, havingness, self-esteem, employment/money, etc., I certainly also take that slooowly, developing a theory of value over the past couple of years that accommodates Pluto's transit through my First House and Capricorn, one that also allows for my Aquarius Sun to shine through.

    It's funny...years ago I would have said that I jumped the gun at everything. Aries Nadir, Venus in the 1st? But now I appreciate the testing of time and try to be patient with myself.

    1. Capricorn does value anything that's hard-earned and done through persistent effort. So, yeah, Capricorn Venus types do often take their relationships slowly. With it being in your 1st House, you have this attitude and demeanor that are all about valuing yourself and pleasing yourself, as well as others. So, you display a lot of self-respect by insisting that your love interests take their time and consistently prove themselves.

  9. I have Venus in Scorpion in conjunction with Mars in Sagittarius, both in the 8th house (and Mars conjunct Pluto). I don't have as much knowledge about Venus, but what brings me peace is to feel deeply in connection with everything I enjoy and the things around me, and feel that I am living my own truth. Involuntarily, I'm always trying to understand the motivations of people and everything that moves the environment around me ... like trying to capture something unconscious of the place. In contrast, superficial or insincere relationships make me quite angry.

    Well, I guess it's not so easy to have that placement because everything about relationships something within me always brings "an air" of tragic or death related to the situation, or sacrifice. So, everything is very deep and this is kind of unbearable for most people.

  10. I have Venus in 2nd house in Aries conjunct Mercury (exact). Both are trine 10th house Uranus in Sagittarius (exact). I also have Mars in Taurus here opposite 8th house Pluto in Scorpio. So I have a loaded 2nd house with Aries in the house cusp. My Venus in Aries likes everything Venus but in An Aries fashion. So it's almost like an Aries with a Taurus flavour as well as Aries with a Taurus flavour. I like good things in life, and my Venus is happiest when appreciating the good things in life. But, yes, my Venus is also in fall. And it is not an easy energy to live with. I love in an Aries fashion... impulsively and passionately, also the reason why I bite more than I can chew sometimes. Money is important to me and it took me some time to realise that it is important, if not the most important thing in life. Having a loaded second house with Venus there means that I need art in life. Even though I am not in a field that is directly about art, I love and need to appreciate art. I think my Venus is happiest when surrounded by artistic, beautiful ( not in a conventional sense) and positive people. Positivity is important to me. To make matters a little more complicated, my Venus (along with Mercury and Uranus) is retrograde, so negative situations and people always hamper my growth. The current Uranus transit in Aries coupled with Mercury in Aries and the 2017 retrograde Venus affair has not been pleasant, but I think it is part of my evolution. Plus, Jupiter in Libra is opposed to my natal Sun/Mercury/Venus/and Uranus transit has been an eye-opening experience.

  11. My Venus is my 'saddest' placement. I have Venus in 12th, Gemini, conjunct the ascendant. I feel happy when I communicate with others, and I enjoy information and knowledge the way people would like food. I think I attract people and friends by my talk. On the other hand, I also like my alone time, very, very much (ha! perfect combo)
    I've read mostly negative things about Venus in 12th, but I'm not completely on board with all of it (e.g. secret love affairs- hell no!) but I think the Piscean vibe of the 12th house either makes the effects of Venus very 'locked up' or just pouring all over the place. It's hard to explain, but I think the idea of being outside, looking in might be the best way to say it- I see happiness and love and beauty, I can feel it radiate towards me, and that makes me happy, but I feel I won't ever break that barrier between 'me' and 'them', to really become a part of them. But I'm willing to give everything to preserve what is there.
    I'm honestly not able to claim my Venus the way I've claimed my other planets. Other than the ascendant conjunction (that too backwards from the 12th, bleh) my Venus sextiles Mercury and squares the Midheaven. Also *maybe* it's the apex of a yod, but I've honestly given up on it.

    1. Well, it makes sense that you have trouble claiming your Venus because it's in the 12th. But, it's not the saddest Venus placement. Well, it potentially can be but it doesn't have to be. Venus in the 12th House is a totally beautiful placement. Once you work with it, you can find a love and happiness that other people can only dream of.

  12. I have venus in Scorpio in the 4th house, both a water sign and a water house. I like anything deep; people, conversations, art. Also I LOVE being at home. Of course, lots of people love being at home but for me it's a very deep need and being at home gives me comfort. On the downside, my venus has negative aspects only. An opposition to my moon, a square to my ascendant, uranus and neptune, and an inconjunction to my saturn so it's not easy for my venus to feel comfortable and it does take quite a bit of work.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, all those challenging aspects as well as it being in the sign of Scorpio means that your road to comfort won't exactly be smooth. But, once you work out those inner conflicts, I think you can find a really deep (Scorpio) form of happiness.

    2. Mine is in Capricorn in the 4th I totally understand loving your home. I never want to leave mine!

  13. Taurus Venus in 4th House. I find that my privacy, my home life, and being with people who I have a strong emotional bond with make me happy, or comfortable at the very least. I love to just come home and feel emotionally secure and safe; my Taurus Venus accentuates this, as I find joy in indulging my senses, surrounding myself with things that represent me/bring me joy and feeling secure physically and emotionally. This Venus, I think, makes me a homebody of sorts. My Venus is opposite my Scorpio Midheaven, so having to completely immerse myself in the public sphere for too long is very draining at times; being able to come home and feel like I'm not pressured to do anything makes me happy. I also have Venus trine Capricorn AS and Jupiter, so fostering a positive attitude towards success and having a refined, admirable attitude brings me some pleasure; using my brain and feeling smart also brings me pleasure with my Venus trine Pisces Mercury. However, with my Venus square Aquarius Moon and Uranus, feeling like a weirdo or outcast and not being able to live like everyone else does come in conflict with my happiness. Feeling comfortable with my eccentricities and appreciating my individuality is something I've come to learn and appreciate. Sorry if this lengthy; my Venus is very versatile and is my dominant planet. Thoughts?

    1. Quite a few Venus in the 4th House people here! Venus rules my 4th and my Nadir is also in Taurus. So, I can totally relate. I do love just relaxing and being able to indulge in my lazy side without anyone making a big deal of it. It is really nice for me to feel like I'm not pressured to do anything and even if I were, I'd be too stubborn for you to prod toward doing it. Haha.

      I wouldn't say that I am "materialistic at home or in private" like the cliche Taurus Nadir description would be. But, I DO have a few prized possessions that are really special to me. I really love wrapping myself up in blankets and always have, ever since I was a kid. So, I still have a sort of security blanket that I'm always wearing or dragging around at home. Also, things like drinking my tea out of the same cup every day. It's not about "look at the nice things I own." It's about having a few things that consistently bring me comfort or a part of my day.

  14. My venus is in Leo, in the third house. And let me tell you about how much I love to talk. When I get passionatly it's obvious and my eyes light up. I've been told multiple times there is fire in my eyes when I speak about my passions. I have to be careful with this placement because I tend to want to shove words at people to make them understand, although I consciously know that it's better to teach people by allowing them to invent new ideas in their own minds, rather than handing it to them on a silver platter. When I get mad, I've learned to walk away and go chill out because I will cut you with my words. I will catch myself going from one person to the next having very lengthy and deep conversations, and before I know I've spent my whole day doing just that. Also I'm sure this all has something to do with my Gemini rising too, however, if I'm sad and then I'm able to go hang out and just chat with a friend my mood elevates quickly. Overall I'm a very social creature, however, I need a decent amount of alone time to recharge since I'm so talkative and extroverted.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm, that's interesting. Do you have even harsh aspects to Venus that'd make you cut people with your words? Because Venus in the 3rd House usually makes for someone who always tries to say things the nice way and can sometimes tell people what they want to hear to charm them or keep the peace.

      Delete
    2. Sounds like the Venus is the one who goes to her friends to elevate her mood again.

      But I wonder what's up with Mars and Mercury, as there's a lot of fighting with words. Especially because Mercury is the chart ruler as well...
      I'm also thinking about your post on Mercury-Jupiter aspects... "shoving words at people" sounds a lot like "The preacher". I mean, I got lots of those talkative aspects, with Mars in Gemini and Mercury conjuct Leo and all of those in aspect with each other, and I find myself in @Clover's story - only difference being that I'm softer in my approach and barely ever get angry. (Libra Ascendant here. :D)

      Delete
    3. Well, it's only when I get mad that I am so vicious with my words, and I have to be truly mad and cornered at this point in my life. My words are very powerful, I've said to my X husband with passion "your nose is going to bleed!" because he would do so much coke at the bar on his night shifts and right there on the spot his nose started to bleed. He said it was the first time in his life his nose ever bled. Overall I do try and say nice things to my friends and family. I am a bit of a pleaser for people, however, I do offer realistic positive outlooks on a situation or alternative solutions. People don't really always like to hear things like that when they are upset. Most people just want their feels confirmed. I feel like I struggle with this. Maybe it's my libra sun, and mercury. Perhaps my Mars Aries. Or I've even been told my short temper could be because of my Aquarius moon. I have that Gemini rising too which could be why I use words the way I do. Whatever the case,im striving for balance here.

    4. We got a lot in common. In my case, it's the Ascendant in Libra, and Mars in Gemini. So, there's a lot of "fighting with words to restore harmony"... roughly.

      I got my Moon in Aquarius as well - it doesn't have a short temper. On the contrary, it's very analytical. And observant. I find myself often regarding other people's emotional dramas with curiosity, like a scientist watching a new species. And even my own. There's no lack of empathy, but I can detach myself in a way that enables me to both have and observe my feelings. I tell you, that was VERY useful in therapy, a bit like characterizing a character in a book.
      The other side of Moon in Aquarius that this analytical way of dealing with feelings can become a habit, which is NOT good. I mean, when you deal that way with negative emotions, you'll do it with positive ones, too. I upset a fair few people because I had trouble showing compassion, even though I easily empathized - but instead of hugging someone, all I could offer was a practical solution. As you said, I offered a positive outlook, when they only wanted me to be angry with them and vent.

      Of course, it also depends a lot on all the other stuff that's going on in your chart.

      What's up with Pluto in your chart? That nose-bleeding- episode sounds a lot like it. And Mars in Aries is pretty impulsive. Do you have Mercury opposite Mars, then? Mars-Pluto? Mars-Saturn? If I were you, I'd check out my aspects, if you haven't read those posts here already. I find that all of Wayman's posts about aspects hit extremely close to home.

      And when it comes to Pluto's effect - well, it's pretty strong in my chart. Got it in my first house, too. I'm glad I found out about it, because I often unintentionally intimidated others by looking at them. Too much intensity. Now I that I know I do this, I can control it much better. :)
      It can also have the funny effect of others taking a step backwards when you're not pleased with what they are doing and focus on them. Very practical in some cases, like when you're the supervisor and some teens or so are fooling around instead of working. :P I don't experience Pluto as anything negative, mind - I prefer to think of it as the planet of authenticity. Truth. It's only painful when you don't want to face it. (you might have read that a lot of people are scared of their Pluto transits, but those only show you what IS. For example, if your marriage is a wreck, Pluto transiting your 4th house forces you to acknowledge this and take steps to change the situation, like divorce, moving out, couple's therapy etc.)

      Anyway, I'm not a pro at astrology, that's just my own experiences.

      Good luck finding the balance! :)

  17. My Venus is in Cancer in my 10th house, conjunct the MC. My keywords would be harmony and food. (Sun in Cancer as well, and Asc in Libra) Or nurturing, in a broader sense.
    I found it quite interesting that the traditional interpretation of Cancer is "motherly", while your's is "The responder"... it makes me think of a mother responding to the needs of an infant. :)

    I work in service, mainly in places like McDonald's - and I'm really good at assessing people's needs within seconds to make them feel comfortable. Especially whiny kids and difficult customers. I need them to be happy to be happy myself, because I really can't stand bad vibes.
    The same applies to co-workers. I love to bake muffins for the whole team, or get offered food from others, and make it a point to lighten up the mood of someone who's grumpy or stressed out. Like, family.

    The dark side would be that I AM sensitive to moods, which isn't always the best thing, because it makes me so dependent on a good working atmosphere. I can't possibly survive emotionally in an impersonal corporate environment. In fact, I didn't. Last time I experienced this, I had to start therapy because of burnout.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That sounds exactly like a 10th House Cancer Venus on the Midheaven. It can be a slightly overwhelming MC to have emotionally. So, it's good that you're aware of your needs and able to work that out and gravitate toward a working environment that'll satisfy those needs.

    2. Same, I have Cancer In Venus in 10th Conjunct my mars in the 10th which also opposes my moon and trines my jupiter, along with a libra asc + cancer midheaven, AND my Sun in Leo is, guesse what, in my 10th

  18. My Venus is in Sagittarius conjuncts pluto, trines Saturn, sextiles Uranus and opposites Ascendant. Having Sagittarius Venus I attracted to foreign places and foreign people. I found of travelling, reading, listening music, nature, having good time. I don't like feeling trapped and freedom is very important to me (typical Sagittarius). But I am also very private and passionate person. I don't like to be social, I mean I like to have few but steady people, people whom I can trust in my life. I like everthing that is deep-people, conversations, books, movies, etc. I hate superficiality, parties, places that crowded. Also I don't like to be like everyone else. But I have a hard time accepting myself. I try to see beauty in everyone but when it comes to me I just don't accept myself. I have boundary issues and I think due to that I attract destructive and toxic people to my life. ( Venus-Pluto) I also attracted to people who is deep, private, passionate steady and a little bit eccentric. The only thing that I don't understand is Venus opposing Ascendant.

    1. Hi! as someone who has a very similar placement to you, I'll tell you that the 7th house venus means you might have trouble accepting these traits within yourself, as you mentioned in this post. I think if you acknowledge these traits, you will feel deeply fulfilled! :D

      Delete
    2. Hi! My Venus is in the 6th house, but due to it conjuncts the descendant I feel more like the 7th house Venus and I think you are right not accepting myself makes me not fulfilled. It's like you always have a battle with yourself and there is a voice in your head which always criticizes you. As you understand I'm very strict to myself and it is really exhausting. In the past it was much more worse but know I'm working on myself. I just promised to myself that no matter what I'll accept myself as who I am and I'll put myself first no matter what others think of me. I hope I'll manage to do that :)

      Delete
    3. Do you also have Pluto near your Descendant? Because the Sagittarius Descendant indicates that you are looking for relationships where you can be totally honest and where there's no holding back, no BS, and if Pluto is involved, you'd seek that out in an intense way that shuns that superficiality. The fact that Venus is conjunct Pluto also makes that true.

      Delete
    4. As usual you are right, Wayman :) My Pluto is also in the 6th house and it conjuncts the descendant. And yeah I hate superficiality. Most of the time people hate me because I can tell to their faces what others can't dare to say. Also I wanted to ask you a question. As I say my Venus and Pluto is in the 6th house and both of them conjucts the descendant. I read on the internet that when a planet conjuncts the descendant you carry traits of both placements and it's a little bit confusing. How do you think should I consider them in the 6th house or in the 7th house?

      Delete
    5. Haha, thanks. I would still consider them in the 6th House. But, the fact that they are conjunct your Descendant is a big deal and means that they definitely play a major role in relationship compatibility for you. It's kind of like having Taurus/Libra Descending and Scorpio Descending, as well. With them being in the 6th House, this just means that you use those Venus and Pluto traits to work hard on the relationship and feel like you're useful to your partner and want them to do the same.

      Delete
    6. Thanks, Wayman! :) You're are right I give a lot of effort ( also my heart) to my relationships and when people don't do this it upsets me a lot. As I said I'm very private person and I have turst issues. To me It's pretty hard to trust to someone and being close with someone, and when I do trust to them and let them into my heart it's a big deal to me.

  19. My Venus is in Capricorn conjunct my mars, Saturn, and Uranus all in my 4th house. I LOVE my home. If I never had to leave I might be happy forever lol. The bad part is sometimes I turned down invitations just to be a hermit. I love the safety and comfort that I find in my home. It's my oaisis. I love saving and I can be very frugal. I love men who are goal oriented and have reached some type of status in their career. In relationships I enjoy knowing the relationship is headed somewhere and has a purpose. I don't want to waste time.I have read Venus in Capricorn tend to like older men but that's not the case for me. Usually my partners are no more than 3 years older, but I do like mature men and men who take care of their business. I also love being responsible and someone others can count on. Since my Venus is conjunct Saturn I have been terribly pained many times but I've learned to appreciate the lessons in love my Venus is teaching me. I know one day my experience in love will be better because of all the pain I've had to endure and learn from.

    1. I also forgot to write that my Venus is also conjunct my Neptune in Capricorn in the 4th giving me a 4th house stellium in Capricorn.

      Delete
    2. That is a powerful stellium you have there! But, it definitely shows how much strength, pleasure, and freedom you get from your home life. People with a loaded 4th House do tend to be homebodies. But, it's also a house that's about feeling very at home within yourself. So, the "home" of the 4th is literal and metaphorical. Just something to remember. :)

  21. Venus retro in Cancer in 12th, conj Mercury (Gem) and AC (Cancer), sextile Jupiter. Hanging out with kids and teenagers, I spend a lot of time with them because of my job and it makes me happy. Looking young - I look at least 10 years younger than I actually am and I'm very happy about it. Having a nice home, painting, reading in the first place, but reading words beautiful and deep, I don't like anything superficial in my life. Being alone with myself, I need to withdraw from the world very often and I love that time alone. Crying from happiness sometimes. Lots of water surrounding my Venus I guess

  22. Don't really know what much to say here, I have venus in virgo conjunct mars in leo in the 2nd house. Both trine my midheaven in Ares. All I know about this so far is that I love the arts. I used to write alot of things and dance for the reaction from people. Most everything artistic I did was for the applause, but recently my values have been changing. Before I used to write things or do things in a way that people would be able to understand because I feared being misunderstood. But I've realized there is something deeply satisfying about writing in depth or doing things in such a way that people's perceptions of me and my art fall away. It's still there, I can still understand people's perceptions but their value to me is now negligible. I also have Sun conjunct Moon in Cancer in 12th house both trine Pluto in Scorpio in 4th house, Neptune conjunct Uranus in capricorn in 6th house, neptune sextile pluto. This has been quite a journey so far. To anyone out there feeling lost or looking for meaning in their actions... Do what you love, only because you love it

  24. This is a great post about Venus. And it sheds a little light on the subject, especially my Venus. I have Venus in Virgo at approximately 28 degrees in the 8th house, I think, barely conjunct my Pluto in Libra. Does this mean my Venus is afflicted? And if so, what does that mean, having an afflicted Venus? And I've also been told Venus in 28 degrees is not good at all. I've been told I'm unemotional, even cold. But when I finally do show emotion, it's the wrong time or wrong way of presenting that particular emotion, more specially my sadness. It just makes me angry to be sad.

I have Venus in Virgo at approximately 28 degrees in the 8th house, I think, barely conjunct my Pluto in Libra. Does this mean my Venus is afflicted? And if so, what does that mean, having an afflicted Venus? And I've also been told Venus in 28 degrees is not good at all. I've been told I'm unemotional, even cold. But when I finally do show emotion, it's the wrong time or wrong way of presenting that particular emotion, more specially my sadness. It just makes me angry to be sad.

  26. Venus in Gemini in the 7th, widely conjunct the Descendant and even more widely trine the MC [just within the orb]. Since my MC is in Libra, it also rules it. It also rules my 5th House and the Taurus NNode that lives there.

    I love to talk and socialize generally, and get a LOT of pleasure out of a good conversation. Communication and a meeting of minds is basically crucial to any relationship I have - I need stimulation in this regard otherwise I won't be satisfied.

    Planet-wise, it's closely conjunct Chiron, opposition Uranus and trine to Jupiter. The trine to Jupiter sort of amplifies my general enjoyment of both placements and probably gives a certain charm to me [I hope]. The opposition to Uranus gives me a bit of a double-sided approach to relationships - I can completely indulge in the Venus side of things and then I get an urgent need to go off and do my own thing. Then I get lonely and want to be with company again.... it just oscillates like that. The more problematic one is the Chiron conjunction, I have trouble reading this combination correctly. I suppose love can be very healing for me but also the source of a lot of wounds. It might give me more compassion I guess. I'm not sure what to make of this bit.

  27. I have Venus in Capricorn in the 5th house.
    I love antiques, old gothic architecture history and reading I think this is the Capricorn part.
    Having Venus in the 5th house, I love children and I did do Gymnastics for 8 years because I was thrilled by the performing aspect and the hard work that went into looking elegant and doing tricks

  29. Venus in Scorpio in the 3rd house, conjuct Sun, sextile Mars and Ascendant (both in Virgo) and square Uranus (Aquarius). I just can't wrap my head around all these aspects but what I know Is that I love to talk about the things that I have found out and explain exactly how deep I dug to find them.I love talking about taboos, conspiracy and sex.I love using suble ways to express myself, riddles and metaphors for example.I love someone to try and figure me out.I akso love to figure out others.And I come off as a very magnetic and sexual, people always do me favours and give me gifts and I think that this is due to the Sun and Ascendant aspects.The other thing is that I am pursuing very aggressively the people that I like.I am a bit of a stalker and probably become a little obsessive when It comes to love.Its all or nothing.

  30. Venus squared by Pluto that sits on ASC, in conjunction with Mars, Saturn and Moon in Aquarius in 3rd. First of all communication is everything for me, complete, deep, real, honest communication. Then expressing myself, I love, I crave other peoples attention, and I love to be completely liberated in my style but I don't have courage for that because Saturn and Pluto attack my Venus with fears of not being good enough or fear of being ashamed, loosing power, reputation etc. I'm heading to a singer songwriter career but Saturn just wont let me express my Aquarian quirkiness and weirdness , but actually everything I enjoy aesthetically is typical Aquarian weirdness. Music is really everything to me along with visuals, but, still I discover things that I truly love so late because Saturn is killing me with all of those have to's that there was a period in my life when I was totally neglecting Venusian side of reality, but majority of my life it was all about expressing my personality and my inner worlds to others through different types of stage performances, theater, poetry reading, music, dance etc. But really having struggles with self confidence and ideas of loosing personal power through being ashamed by other people. It shuts down my Venus completely.And with Mo,Ma,Ve and Sa in Aquarius, I have a hell of a weird taste and always new stuff, I hate even taking the same road till jobs school same day, always looking for new stuff.

  31. Venus in Scorpio, 12th house.

    I took a long time to actually get this placement. When I was young, I would be uninterested in intimate relationships, preferring being alone, reading romances, writing, and absorbing myself on my interest for the occult. I had a lot of secrets.

    Eventually I started to open up, and develop deep relationships with usually troubled individuals. I think I have a lot of compassion and I can identify with pretty much anyone.

    I am aiming to become a phychiatry so I can understand better myself and the others hidden lives.
