Venus is the planet that represents what we love and what is important to us. The sign and house that Venus is in your astrology chart will point to what type of person you will attract in relationships. When a professional astrologer interprets your astrology chart, especially if you are asking about relationships, then he or she will focus on Venus, the fifth house (which is the house of romance) and the seventh house (the house for partnership and marriage).
Connections with inner planets, such as the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter give a twist on the standard interpretation for whichever sign your Venus is in. Understanding the role that additional planets play in your love life will help you in accessing if the relationship you are in is right for you.
If you have Venus conjunct your Sun then your identity can be caught up with being in a relationship. Venus Sun individuals are often attractive. When Venus is conjunct the Sun and those individuals get divorced or break up many times they go through a deep depression. The planet Venus symbolizes their love and when it is connected to their Sun, (the whole or identity of the person) they will feel lost or feel that a part of them has been taken away or broken off.
When Venus is connected to Mercury you will seek a relationship with good communication and qualities of friendship. Being together to do day to day activities is important; you may commute to your jobs together, do laundry and shopping together and although this may be boring to others you will find joy in the simple pleasure of laughing and chatting while doing boring chores.
When Venus is with the Moon then your emotional connection to being in a partnership is magnified. You will find that you are happiest when you have someone to come home to, as the Moon represents (among other things) the home. Venus wants someone to be with at night (the Moon shines at night) and share togetherness in a home setting.
Venus connected with Mars is a sexy combination. Individuals with a Venus Mars aspect have a sensual and sexy aura. Therefore they can attract relationships that are sexual based first. A fight or disagreement is often followed by passionate make up sex.
Venus with Jupiter is expansion of love. Many times this indicates that finding someone to be with is easy. There appears to be more choices and availability when you have Venus with Jupiter. Jupiter makes everything bigger, so lots of love can flow from the heart of someone with Venus Jupiter. Some Jupiter Venus people can have multiple relationships.
Venus with the outer planets is a different ball game. These aspects or connections carry memories from the womb and early childhood that have conditioned the emotional response and expectation for relationships. Healing the troubled Venus is important so one may have love and happy relationships.
When you seek to understand the sign interpretation and connections Venus has in your astrology chart you will have further insight into the complexities of your relationship patterns. A professional astrologer looks at the planetary combinations not only to know where you will most likely find a relationship that suits you but to uncover how you are wired. Awareness is the key to accept or change what you have into what you want. If you have patterns in relationships that are unsettling for you astrology can give you the awareness that you seek.
