Venus is the planet of affectivity, perceived as the ability to welcome and create harmony among human beings in the name of good and beauty
Venus in Aries
This position characterises impulsive, enterprising affectivity, a taste for adventure and independence. It’s the kind of blind, unreflective love that is led to multiple relationships throughout life. Aesthetically poor sensitivity and aversion to perfectionism make one fickle, prone to passions and sudden separations in critical cases. In a woman, it can mean a taste for adventure and a manly attitude.
Venus in Taurus
Affectivity is warm and sensual, tending to jealousy and exclusivity, desire for continuity in love and stable unions; the aesthetic sense predisposes to practical artistic activities, to the care of beauty; sometimes, excessive sensuality, an excessive taste for luxury, emotional vulnerability. For a man, the attempt at pleasure can turn into love disappointment.
Affection is subtle and changeable, critical and intelligent to the disadvantage of human warmth. Love shows some exhibitionist and narcissistic aspect, as the desire to be loved and admired; simultaneous relationships and bonds, aesthetics that rely on dialectics, sympathy, charm; sometimes fickleness, lightness, erotic restlessness.
Venus in Cancer
Affectivity is intense, tender, sweet, unselfish, eager for understanding and attention. Relationships are characterised with little practical sense due to the tendency to idealise and fix emotional memories. Aesthetically, the individual plays on the imagination, on the voluptuous taste for beautiful things; at times, a particular emotional vulnerability is a harbinger of unwillingness and mutability.
Venus in Leo
Affectivity plays on distinction, protective generosity rather than tenderness. Loves and idealistic relationships are based on loyalty and enthusiasm, aesthetically predisposition to the noble arts, taste for luxury, prestige, and entertainment. Signs of authoritarianism, intrusiveness or exhibitionism in love are likely.
Venus in Virgo
Affection follows the intellect: in a woman, it gives rise to modesty and in a man to a cold passion; relationships are filtered by reason. Typical characteristics are confidentiality, control, devotion to relationships, practical aesthetics oriented towards body care, sometimes frigidity, fussiness, sentimental and moralistic hardness, a tendency to passing adventures.
Venus in Libra
In affectivity, the aesthetic and artistic sense dominates. Qualities of courtesy, charm, desire for beauty, loves and selective relationships where the critical and perfectionist spirit prevails more than pure sentiment; a propensity to the life of society, in some cases, infidelity, vanity, coquetry, criticism. The relationship is evaluated for the degree of balance it can offer.
Venus in Scorpio
Intense affectivity, lacking softness but a prevalence of erotic and instinctual impulses; complexity and uncertainty in acquaintances and relationships. In a female theme, it can mean the capacity for seduction and sensual magnetism. Aesthetic taste linked to arts and analytical activities; often thwarted, dramatic, morbid loves.
Venus in Sagittarius
Optimistic, simple, generous affectivity, far from complications. Honesty and camaraderie; established relationships and guilt in extra-marital relationships. Search for an emotional harmony based on an affinity of ideals, loves that broaden one’s knowledge of the world. Aesthetic tendencies are linked to philosophical and religious concepts, attraction to the arts and travel; sometimes, one cannot defend themselves from loving deceptions.
The affections are reasoned, prudent, reflective, severe, far from excesses and ornaments; emotional harmony is based on a few essential data. There is no aptitude to externalise the affections but rather the search for a solid, lasting, true union. Aesthetics pays attention to the basics; in critical cases, loneliness, frustrations, sadness, practical exploitation of affections, misanthropy.
Venus in Aquarius
Affectivity is flexible, understanding, unconventional. Relationships are characterised by independence, insufficient acceptance of dutiful links, intolerance towards relationships that do not give a free loving expression, intuitive and cerebral aesthetic sense. Sometimes, sentimental oddities, sexual curiosity, overindulgence.
Venus in Pisces
Affectivity is a dreamer, romantic, lyrical exaltation of sensibility. Relationships are based on fusion and emotional sharing. Inspired aesthetic sense, attraction towards the musical, pictorial, poetic arts; often there is lack of practical purposes, confusion and affective disorders, tendency to follow emotional currents without bothering to direct them.
