Venus in Astrology

Venus symbolizes love, relatedness, values, social urges, art, beauty, creation, attraction, luck, personal magnetism, money, nurturing mother love, sensuality, bonding energy, harmony and merging.  In the physical body it rules the kidneys, urinary tract, the venous blood and system, the throat, the larynx, and general physical attractiveness and magnetism.

Venus is the force of attraction in the universe, bringing things together to form a more perfect, complete and stable whole than that which previously existed in parts. In human beings this attractive force manifests as love, for others and for beauty. Through Venus we relate to others, appreciate the aesthetic principles of balance, harmony, color and sound, and learn to cooperate.

In a man’s chart it represents his feminine ideal, and the female he is looking for—if he is looking for a female. Venus also rules our values, and enjoyment of all kinds. With the addition of Venus’ love, art and beauty, mere existence on Earth is transformed into a life that is worth living.

Venus goes retrograde for a six-week period once about every 19 months—only 7% of the time. The planet least likely to be retrograde, Venus’ retrogradation is therefore the most significant. Your Venus is retrograde if there’s an “Rx” radially just inside of its degree and minutes digits in your horoscope chart.

Venus retrograde individuals find their personal values through their relationships. They internalize and slowly digest their experiences with others to determine what will be of value to them later. This individualizing process can be very irritating to a mate, who may want to know where the Venus retrograde individual stands before having to go through the experience together.

Venus rules Libra and Taurus. In Libra, Venus is aesthetic and cultured, lending harmony and love to relationships. In Taurus it is more earthy, materialistic and sensual, teaching the true value of what we attract and possess through our free will and the responsibilities of ownership. Since we draw and add to ourselves through this attractive principle, an afflicted Venus spells difficulties with love and money. Often this shows a need to learn the true meaning of giving and sharing. In the body, Venus rules the venous system, kidneys, urinary tract, throat, larynx, and general physical attractiveness.
