Many of you will remember your VENUS SYMBOL by now or write it down in your journal so you can recognize it without much thinking....this is the beginning of how we develop our intuition in astrology. We see the symbol and immediately we know its essence: Have you written your Venus symbol down? The circle stands for Spirit/Wholeness/The ONE or totality of all being..... and the cross underneath is a symbol for Mother Earth. Venus is the vital essence of all manifest creation. 

The essenceof Venus is the "GREENING" that Hildegard von Bingen talked about in her writings.

"The Word is living,

being, spirit,

all verdant greening,

all creativity.

This word

manifests itself

in every creature."

Hildegard von Bingen    1098 to 1179, a 12th century nun

"Glance at the sun. See the moon and stars. Gaze at the beauty of the green earth.

Now think."

Hildegard von Bingen



Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in LIBRA. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours; they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them because the important thing to learn is what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in. Later on, you'll learn why degrees are important. 

If your VENUS is in LIBRA you have an eye for aesthetic beauty. In fact, this is a wonderful placement for a woman’s Venus since it gives you ability in the fine arts, including dancing and art appreciation. Venus in Libra elevates love, beauty, and harmony to a fine and pleasing aesthetic.

Your social relationships are very important to you. In fact, you may find it hard to be alone. Do you ever feel you are in a world by yourself when you are not with a significant other? This is the Libra need to connect with another. Sometimes, you will need to open your circle and look to the wider world in order to feed this deep need for human relationships. Otherwise, you can feel overly stressed.

Since Venus represents beauty, she bestows you with her qualities of beauty, charm, sex appeal, and refinement. You should have more than one opportunity for marriage.

You innately understand the feelings of others because you are ‘in tune'. You want close personal relationships that bring you a bond of lasting friendship. You have the desire to please others, so naturally, you will be well-liked. Sensuality, for its own sake, is not what you are looking for; you also require the intellectual stimulation and close companionship of a relationship.

Georgia O'Keeffe portrait by Alfred Stieglitz from Georgia O'Keefe Museum

I could hardly believe it, but it's true: With her Venus in Libra, Georgia O'Keef (Venus in Libra) and Alfred Stieglitz wrote 25,000 or so love letters to each other after they met in 1916. Sometimes they wrote two or three times a day, poems too! They eventually married in 1924.

 In her composition, it is not unusual to find her painting TWO flowers. In this way, she found balance in her art. Her relationship with her art was intimate, beautiful, and filled with feminine charm and allure.

TWO of anything brings the challenge of creating balance into LIFE ITSELF!

She remained beautiful and charming into her elder years. "Grace" is a lovely word for your Venus if it is in LIBRA.

As a Venus in Libra or one with Venus in your 7th house of partnerships, you may long to achieve a sense of balance and justice in your relationships, whether it be with a partner or your work.

You like your surroundings to be beautiful. Your aesthetic perceptions are highly developed. You want to listen to classical music. You may have an aptitude for music, dance, or graceful yoga, or someone close to you does. You appreciate art. And although you are not as money conscious as Taurus, who is also ruled by the planet, Venus, you will probably want to hook up with people who are more mature and have acquired wealth. This is due in part to your being drawn to the finer things in life. You can make money partly by your pleasing manners and naturalness in dealing with the public.

You are an AIR sign. Harmonious communications are vital to your sense of connection with a significant other.

You are a woman who does not like discord or disagreement. It makes you feel nervous and upset.  If you have hurt their feelings, you will make it up. You may try to avoid conflicts or situations that feel conflicting. But if you do this to the extreme, there can be superficiality to this Venus in Libra position. You must then garner your caring resources to understand that all 'relationship is 'give and take.'

My friend Margaret has her Venus in Libra. There is a funny story about her making up to me when she didn't show up for a lunch date: Margaret is also a Sun in VIRGO. You need to know this. She called me as soon as she realized she was not there. The next time I saw her, she brought me an "I'm sorry" gift - it was so beautifully wrapped, I really thought it was something special. I had the biggest laugh when I pulled out a small box of Dental tooth floss picks....leave it to her Venus in Libra to gift wrap it in pink and her Virgo Sun (she had a career in nursing) to stick with the hygiene!

HELENA BLAVATSKY, also known as Madam Blavatsky, was a founder of the Theosophical Society. She used her Venus in Libra charm along with her Moon, also in Libra - a dreamy, sensitive, and highly intuitive conjunction, to build a foundation based on the all-inclusive belief that all religions were seeking the same greater truths, tolerance, and peace, all Venus in Libra attributes.

You want to be cared for deeply, but you must also be willing to enter the stream of life with those significant others.  Otherwise, you appear to lack integrity. By joining into life beyond the physical dimension of love and beauty, you enter into the deeper truths that a relationship offers you.



Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, your Venus is in SCORPIO. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours; they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them because the important thing to learn is what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in.

You love deeply and intensely. Your emotions and desires are passionate. When you are in love, you and your lover will ride that dragon!

You are not lukewarm about anything, especially when it comes to love. He (or she) will either be the object of your passion or not. Take your time in choosing your partner so that your love and trust are not betrayed. Otherwise, you could become jealous, and it would not be pretty! You could be a woman who sacrifices everything for love. That is another good reason why you should take your time in choosing the right partner.

HILLARY CLINTON has her Venus in Scorpio. This sign is capable of deep devotion but will probably enter into some intimate relationships that have an intense or dramatic quality about them. Venus is seeking deep personal transformation through her relationships with significant people who she regards and respects. 

AGATHA CHRISTIE was a wonderful writer of murder mysteries, often expressing the shadow side of being human.  Her Venus was conjunct asteroid Pallas Athene giving her a formula for writing novels that included famous detectives skilled in their ability to get to the bottom of the matter and characters who had deep insight into human psychology. Venus in Scorpio loves a good mystery! She can see beneath the surface of the relationship into the depth and truth of the matter.

KATENJI BROWN JACKSON became a Supreme Court Justice in 2022. Her Venus in Scorpio is conjunct Jupiter that 'loves the laws of a nation. Her Jupiter with Scorpio expands her 'vision' of justice' - let's see what she can do!

Venus in Scorpio, or the 8th house, has deep emotions; they are determined and can be private and loyal. 

Your emotional intensity gives you a strong personality. You know about the Mystery of life, that there is a force greater than what is apparent to the senses, and you are attracted to the feelings of others. In an artistic sense, you would like strong contrasts in painting, decorating, or in clothing. You will want to make a fashion statement according to your feelings.

With this Venus placement, your physical body carries a strong sexual charge. It is important to understand this so that you can either encourage or NOT encourage people into your life. Sometimes you may need to let down or let go of some of that intensity in order to relax with the opposite sex. You probably love the sensuality of sex so keep your reason about you when necessary. – you know what I mean! Your sign is fertile, so if you do not or are not ready for children, then you must use good birth control.

Others may find you abrupt or lacking in delicacy. Try to allow your love nature, and desires to be tempered. Give in sometimes so that love doesn’t become hate. Once you turn your attention away from someone, you may do so forever. You need to let that part of you down a little too! This gives others a chance to redeem themselves in your eyes and heart. There could also be a very idealistic side to you. Get some feedback from someone who sits outside your world of romance to help temper your intensity and determination, which could become stubbornness!

JANE AUSTIN had a keen perception of the psychology of others and could certainly perceive the superficiality in the social engagements of her times. Often Venus Scorpio can have quiet dignity, and since they do not let themselves be known by the other, they may keep their love for the other hidden away.

You are proud in love; make sure you realize that the other person is just that – a person. They may never be able to meet up to the amount of pride you feel in them, so do remember to let them be themselves! This will be easier if you let down a little with those you love.

"The Veil"                            by Gienne Gabriel

A Venus in Scorpio woman is mysterious. You can never know all of her as she keeps her passionate thoughts and feelings close to her heart. She may study the great Mysteries, including Women's Blood Mysteries or that which is of the Divine Feminine.


You are a WATER SIGN. Your emotions are deep and lasting. Choose wisely.



Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, your Venus is in SAGITTARIUS. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours; they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now. The important thing to learn is what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in. 

These women probably have Venus or another planet or Ascendant in Sagittarius!

Good cheer and SPIRIT are in their blood! 

If your VENUS is in SAGITTARIUS, you will want your personal freedom. You do not like feeling that you are tied down in love. You look for someone who can give you a sense of adventure in life. You love to talk about philosophy. You take an eternal journey in life and infuse it with great meaning.

You could inspire other women in their lives in some important way. You express great feelings about the meaning of being a woman or in life itself. Your responses to life are emotionally idealistic and spiritual.

You are friendly, outgoing, and social. You can be frankly outspoken in your inner feelings or observations about others. Ethics, philosophy, and religion guide your moral conduct. You may try to convert your partner to your own religious or spiritual belief, or you may find that you are more attracted to friends and relationships where you have something spiritual in common. You need someone in love who understands your need to make meaning and see the bigger picture.

You may like a large home if you can afford it. You want to be surrounded by the natural beauty of nature. You may be fond of art forms with a religious or spiritual motif that you pick up on your travels to distant places. Living around or near water may also appeal to you because it relaxes you and allows you to have a vast open space to shift perspective in.

Try not to be blunt with others. Your natural openness, though of value, could offend someone. It is important for you to tell the truth but sometimes waiting until you are not emotionally charged up about the situation will be helpful. Don’t impose your religious, spiritual, or moral standards on others. You ‘just love’ certain spiritual elements about life, but others may not. You would benefit from finding friends who are as wholeheartedly inspired by these elements as you are.

You want to explore more deeply the meaning behind religious and spiritual elements in life. You have interests in philosophy or law.

With a 9th house Venus in Sagittarius, you will want your lover to take you on a  JOURNEY.

You love the Journey of life and need opportunities to show this love to others. Your social group could be large or diverse culturally, and this suits you.

Large animals like horses or BIG dogs appeal to your sense of adventure. Since you like the wide open spaces, your animals can journey with you and become loving companions on your path. People with a sense of adventure or who are athletic appeal to you.

It is not known whether HYPATHIA of ALEXANDRIA had her VENUS in Sagittarius, but because she so exemplifies the archetype, I have chosen her as one of our women.

Socrates, a historian close to her own time, wrote this about her:  "There was a woman at Alexandria named Hypatia, daughter of the philosopher Theon, who made such attainments in literature and science, as to far surpass all the philosophers of her own time. Having succeeded in the school of Plato and Plotinus, she explained the principles of philosophy to her auditors, many of whom came from a distance to receive her instructions. On account of the self-possession and ease of manner that she had acquired as a consequence of the cultivation of her mind, she not infrequently appeared in public in the presence of the magistrates. Neither did she feel abashed in going to an assembly of men. For all men, on account of her extraordinary dignity and virtue, admired her the more.”

The word philosophy means “love (Philo) of wisdom (Sophia).”  The yearning for sacred wisdom is one of the possible ways a Venus in Sag could love. They have a 'love of WISDOM.'

On another note, this Venus sign can be rather masculine, putting her attention on athletic achievement.

This Venus sign or 9th house position can excel at sports and is a wonderful team member. She might be a policewoman or an attorney for true justice!

TINA TURNER is a great example of the embodied energy that is possible in this sign. Wild woman Venus in Sag not only wants her freedom, but she is also wildish, either expressing this in herself or in her love of nature and physical prowess! If, however, your Venus in Sag is squared or opposed, say by Virgo, Virgo can limit your freedom and may even challenge you with illness. (That's what happened to me! I had to find my adventure in the starry skies, in my garden, and vicariously through my Sagittarius-type friends and love of high adventure movies!)

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ funded her entire campaign through grassroots volunteers and donations. Her outspoken quality is certainly a part of her Venus in Sagittarius. Venus in Sag or the 9th house can be loyal and patriotic if they believe in the tenants of their country and the constitution. They are willing to fight for their country. They may want to protect their country, environment, or family and are not afraid to do so.

EMILY DICKENSON had her Venus in Sag conjunct with the Sun and Mercury, a sure sign of a writer. With all that Sag, you would not think she would lead such a hermit life. Her Venus with the Sun meant she was born under a Venus in the Underworld. She garnered her vibrant poetic energy in the silence and solitude of this aspect. Sun conjunct Venus follows her life purpose. Her Jupiter and Neptune were also in Sag! What a strong lineup of planets all in one sign for a woman to have! Neptune with Jupiter surely gifted her with deep imaginative qualities and poetic talent. I was reading some of her poetry recently and noticed how it took me on a journey of discovery, a kind of timeless feeling. 

You can begin to see how Venus does not define WHAT we do, but a kind of definitive spirit of how we do it!

Venus in Sag is a FIRE Sign. She makes a great cheerleader and can hold the positive energy of SPIRIT because it is part of her nature. Sag is also a double-bodied sign meaning it has a duality in its nature. In the case of Venus in Sag. you may be feeling quite social at one time,... or you are seeking solitude. Spending time alone away from the maddening crowd could be important for your balance and peace of mind. 


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, then your Venus is in Capricorn. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours; they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now; the important thing is to first learn what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in. 

VENUS IN CAPRICORN or Venus in your 10th house

If your VENUS is in CAPRICORN or in your tenth house, you are loyal to the point of making yourself vulnerable to hurt. You will not appear as sensitive in love as you truly are. Rejection can be a feeling you will have to work on in order to feel balanced. You have a sense of duty and responsibility in love that could mix itself up with love itself. Is this truly love I am feeling, or am I just feeling obligated to this person?

You want to achieve material status and wealth in order to achieve emotional security. You are probably proud and reserved in public, not liking big emotional displays in front of others. In private, you may be very sensual, but you could repress the sexual side of yourself or your emotions until you feel that the desire of your affections can be trusted.


You may carry a subtle sense of aloneness that is attractive to men (or women if you are a man). Perhaps you will seek an older or more mature partner. Or if you marry later in life or find your beloved as you age, then you may marry someone younger whom you can help to stabilize. Or perhaps you are looking for someone younger whom you can provide security for. Often the need to be responsible gets mixed up with true love and affection.


Capricorn and the structures it builds unite people under one culture.

JOAN of ARC had her Venus in Capricorn conjunct with her Sun! She was certainly mature at an early age and a very serious person on a mission. She stood for something of great importance to her country and culture. She embodied it literally! Venus conjunct the Sun gives an even greater determination and commitment. She heard the voice of God. Through the power of her strong feminine psyche, she became devoted to a cause. Her Sun/Venus conjunction was square to Jupiter, conjunct with her Moon. This square aspect increased her determination at all odds. Jupiter, with the Sun, can bring a strong sense of loyalty to one's country.

A Venus Capricorn, or in the 10th house, will build something to last. You want your life to have structure and are not afraid of discipline. You are reliable and modest. You value building something that will take time, sacrifice and bring you status and respect.

You have a strong sense of structure, form, and composition in the arts or your work. You might like the more traditional forms in art or a home. Your business and managerial skills could come out in the arts or fields related to art. Visiting a museum or fine antique store, or structurally sound older home would bring out your sense of appreciation for that which is well constructed. You have an artistic eye and also appreciate when something has been built soundly, safely, and to last. 

If you feel a sense that you are becoming emotionally cold or if your aloofness keeps you from entering into serious intimate relationships, then you may be too focused on money, property, or material possessions for the security they bring or because they can keep you away from the emotions and vulnerability that you fear. Take your time getting to know the other in matters of the heart; you probably have better intuition and choosing skills than you know, but your fear and sensitivity to being hurt or in a vulnerable position make closeness hard for you at times.

You may love to take your time with precision and detail in your work or artistic pursuits. You have a sense of placement, of fine craftwomanship, and what it takes to produce a product of excellence. You are willing to take the time to produce a fine wine, perfume, crafted item, home, or whatever it is you are making. You will likely be successful at some time in your life! You are not in a hurry, so you are willing to go that extra mile to achieve perfection or mastery.

VENUS in CAPRICORN is an EARTH sign. Venus in the 10th house will also carry these qualities:

frugality, rational, faithful, reserved, social status, and respect are great motivators.

"A penny saved is a penny earned."

                        Benjamin Franklin


SCARLETT JOHANNSON has her Venus in Capricorn. Venus in Capricorn is sexy and is known for her stamina. Like a successful Venus in Cap, she was the world's highest-paid actress in 2018 and 2019! 

Women born with Venus in Capricorn tend to have compact earthy bodies. They can be any size but usually have very full and complete figures. They can be sarcastic and funny.

They may also be penny-pinchers. This is due to their ruling planet, SATURN, which can be conscious of where every penny goes. It follows that they are usually modest even though they love to look pulled together and wear clothing that 'looks' expensive. 

Your Venus in Capricorn is quite likely to marry either very early....

or very late in life. You will be loyal once committed to your life partner.

Others respect you. You instill a sense of trust in others by being 'there' and by being an authority. You, however, may be untrusting until the other has shown they are worthy of your high standards. You might even appear to be mean to others at times. This can happen if you think someone is wasting your time.

DOLLY PARTON has that down-to-earth quality of a Venus in Capricorn. She certainly excelled in her career as a singer and writer of tender songs that revealed a loving but vulnerable personality.

VIRGINIA WOOLF was an English writer. She was regarded as one of the most prominent modernists of the twentieth century. Her Venus was at 29 degrees of Capricorn, which gave me a sense that she was always seeking her freedom in the next sign, Aquarius. Her Aquarian Sun was conjunct with her Venus.

Do you notice how often Sun and Venus are together in the charts of the many women I have been researching? The power of the Sun gave them an extra push in the direction of their life purpose and added to the degree of ongoing fame they achieved even after death.

Virginia had an afflicted Mercury, so much so that she dealt with serious depression throughout her life. Try as she might to find contentment; the war years took a toll on her sensitive, dreamy nature. Much of her grounding seems to have come through her relationship with her husband, Harold. 

Venus in Capricorn or in the 10th house is strong, earthy, tasteful, sensible, and down-to-earth; they may be late bloomers in love having gone through an awkward phase. To others, they appear socially distant or seem unattainable, and yet they can be wise beyond their years in some way, and they never giggle for attention! 

Underneath it all, you are very sensitive and tend to be attracted to others who are sensitive. You love it when you can truly relax around someone and be real with them. You could have friends that have quite a different age difference from you. Speaking of aging, you get more comfortable with yourself and others and you may age very gracefully, becoming more youthful and light-hearted with age. NICE going!



"Community"                    by Sharon Russell


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol  is next to it, your Venus is in Aquarius. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours, they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now, the most important thing to learn is what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in. 

The above image of Sharon's shows a group of like-minded women. Together they create something that is larger than any of them could carry as an individual. Venus in Aquarius can enjoy their women's circles and esp if that group has a humanitarian purpose. This is one of the wonderful Aquarian traits; they can pull people together to form a community of like-minded individuals to achieve what no one person could do on their own.

  Venus in Aquarius can go in two directions when it comes to fashion. One is very Conservative, and the other is wild and original.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has her Venus in Aquarius.

Venus in Aquarius is an air sign.

She is clever, smart, and intuitive.

Oprah Winfrey has her Venus in Aquarius. Aquarius can bring stardom and popularity! It also makes you a team player and concerned for the welfare of humanity.

We can't be sure of how CLEOPATRA really looked, but this roman statue is probably pretty close to the truth. Cleopatra was born during the time of the Great Conjunction of Uranus and Pluto, a time of great economic and political change. This aspect contributed to her deep desire to restore the greatness of Egypt at a time when the Roman Empire was in its power and glory. My sense of her Venus in Aquarius was that she was flirtatious in her own original ways and not afraid to use what she had to create a love relationship with the two most powerful men in Rome, Caesar and Anthony.

Cleopatra's Venus in Aquarius was in her 4th house of the home and family. She needed the security of loved ones to remain in power. As it turned out, both Caesar and Anthony were super-charged with their own masculine conquest mission, and this dominated her ability to convince them to allow Eqypt its sovereignty, an important ideal for an Aquarian.

Venus in Aquarius is original. You could depart from the rules laid down by society by having different attitudes and morals. Your interpretation may include broader standards and principles. You allow for others beyond the stereotypes.

You want someone different so you can overthrow the norms of what you've grown up with. You are progressive and innovative in love and probably not shy to show how you feel. 

If your VENUS is in AQUARIUS, YOU MIGHT BE LOVING AT A DISTANCE or have an impersonal outlook and keep your distance in matters of the heart. You are emotionally friendly and probably popular and well-liked. You might have many friends or acquaintances or possibly a special friend. You have an unusual quality in your mannerism which is sparkly!

Venus in Aquarius is flirtatious! If this is your love sign and you don't feel you are, flirtatious, that is, then you might give it a try! 

Romantic attractions may come along that are sudden, even casual, but not necessarily lasting. You find intellectual stimulation important in romance and marriage. You are attracted to ingenious or eccentric unusual types. You are looking for a friend as well as a lover.

Boring routines could stagnate your love and you want to have your social freedom or need it.

 "You'll need to be more flexible emotionally to be happy and free in love."

You are particularly intuitive of the emotional states of others.  Your emotional attitudes can become stubborn because of the fixed nature of this air sign in love. When you refuse to see another's point of view, you are really only allowing for your own personal freedom and choices and not letting in the viewpoints of the other. You want and can sustain loyalty to someone, but you must truly love and respect them.

You will have to work at getting in touch with your feelings. You could cut yourself off from those you love by your stuck attitudes and your own cutting out of your feelings. You should take more time in deciding on important relationships so that you do not end the ones you truly love.

Sometimes Aquarius Venus can have eccentric or promiscuous habits due to the nature of Uranus which is unpredictable. But your Saturn (a co-ruler with Uranus of Aquarius) will feel the tension this creates in your personal life. You want a sense of self-integrity.

If you feel that you are becoming emotionally cold or if your aloofness keeps you from entering into serious intimate relationships, then you may be too focused on your own attitudes and the need for too much personal freedom. Freedom at any cost is not free and can make closeness hard for you at times.

You are charming and can be fun to be with when you let your inner child out! Within you is a great deal of youthfulness. If you are not expressing it, you will be unhappy in love. You must be BRAVE to be a child again, but it will be worth it!


Find the VENUS glyph  in your chart. If the symbol   is next to it, then your Venus is in Pisces. It will look like this:

 5° 49′  There will be some numbers with degree °   -    minute ′ symbols next to the numbers. These numbers I've used won't be yours; they are just an example. You won't have to worry about them now. The important thing is to learn what SIGN and HOUSE your VENUS is in.

 VENUS IN PISCES or Venus in your 12th House

If your VENUS is in PISCES or in your 12th house, you love to love and be loved! When you meet that special one, take a moment, actually, take AT LEAST A YEAR TO GET TO KNOW HIM (or her) so that your Pisces rose-tinted glasses do not make something of him/her that he/she is not. You want to mate with a God or Goddess, but he or she is really a human being. 

Venus in Pisces makes sacrifices for their beloveds. Make sure the ones you choose are worthy of that love. You will also love ohey, gooey feelings and sentimental times and memories. Keep roses around you in their real form or on your wallpaper. Romance is VITAL to your relationships – you need to be with sensitive others who can appreciate your deep and tender caring. You probably have a good voice, pleasing and soothing. You like drama and the theater and would do well at acting.

If you have Venus in Pisces or Venus in your 12th house, you are a rare and wonderfully kind and caring person with charm and poise. Your compassionate nature may find you volunteering to help others. You are willing to get in there and do the work that helps those who have less.

The Venus Pisces woman sees into the soul of a person, even if it's deep down. You know there's good in everyone, and this can lead you into shadowy territory at times. Your desire to save can get you involved with troubled or abusive characters. You are a champion for the underdog. You will want to learn to be more discriminating in who you choose to help by making strong boundaries and respecting your own creative dreams.

You long to merge in love. And share a sense of the greater mystery through art, caring acts, as a healer, or embodying soulfulness. But this openness to experiencing this merging makes you vulnerable to losing yourself or feeling that you do not know where the other begins and where you end.

You might open your heart easily, only to close it, sensing danger or the need to move on in a never-ending search for an ideal.


Elizabeth II was born in 1926. I wouldn't have guessed she had a Venus in Pisces. Her strong Capricorn ascendant shows her life purpose in the long leadership of her country. When I think of her Pisces Venus, I do see the devotion she had for her husband. Inside, she was a romantic! Almost every day of her life she had fundraisers to attend. She truly wanted to help others. She kept much of her Venus in Pisces hidden, close to her heart, and so publically, she was seen as more stern and conservative than she really was or would have liked to be!


Teresa became a celebrity in her town while she dispensed wisdom from behind the convent grille. She was known for her passion, esp. her raptures. One story about her tells of her levitating while praying and of her great embarrassment. She asked her sisters to hold her down whenever this occurred. Apparently, more than once! Theresa longed to merge with the lord and could make quite a display of this when it actually did happen.

Venus in Pisces is a sensitive water sign. Passionate, emotional, and dreamy-eyed.

You'll want to be alert to leaks of energy that drain you of life force. A healthy choice is a love that allows you to be tidal, to be out to sea or on the shore. You thrive with plenty of solitude, so you can rediscover your own edges and find expression for what you perceive. You love a lover who is romantic and kind. "Can I safely bare my soul to this person?" is a good question to ask when determining if this is the person you want to spend time with.

"Blue Lagoon"                       by Sharon Russell

When in a relationship with someone you can trust you will reveal new layers of yourself. You seem to hold the universe in your imagination and quest for ethereal beauty. Mermaids have a kinship with the Venus in Pisces women because they embody the ethereal qualities of love and beauty.

If you want to impress someone with their Venus in Pisces, show compassion and don't be crude. Enchant them with colorful tales that confirm there's beauty, love, and kindness all around. 

Your Venus in Pisces is an enchanted dreamer!

Your tastes in music and art cover the whole of the human experience. You might be partial, though, to movies or songs with themes of redemption, and the longings of the soul.

You are looking for signs, and are tuned in to serendipity. Your watery Venus picks up subtle currents and will be tuning in to the deeper soul connection.

A Venus in Pisces woman will find that working on behalf of the Feminine makes them feel connected to the Divine.

MICHELLE OBAMA has her Venus in Pisces at one of the Evening Star Gateways of Venus, almost exactly so! At this, the 4th gateway, and the 4th or heart chakra, she has a natural ability to love and care for others. 

BETTY FORD overcame her personal problem with alcohol. But this was not sufficient for her. As with her cancer, Betty sought ways to share her experience with others in a public way. She raised funds through her many public speaking appearances to build the Betty Ford Center for Drug Rehabilitation in California. Thousands have taken her personal example to heart. When she had cancer, she shared her story with women all over the world. She brought to light what this disease was and to not ignore going to a doctor to get checked. This was at a time when speaking about breast cancer was not done publically. Betty changed all that and saved lives!

Betty had Venus conjunct her Moon in Pisces. She was a Morning Star Venus (another Venus gateway woman!). I sense that the Morning Star Venus has more to overcome in life as she doesn't find it as easy to flow with life. Rather, she must overcome something and learn a new way of living in order for the needs of her soul to be met. See the difference? With Michelle Obama's Evening Star Venus birth, she was born in a later phase of the cycle of Venus, where Venus is rising to become Queen of Heaven. Michelle was demonstrating what she had already learned! 

Betty's Moon was Balsamic at birth, and Michelle's Moon was a Crescent Moon..................go to 'Cycles of Becoming' and read about Balsamic Moon and Crescent Moon. Being born with Venus conjunct to the Moon means you are born during a Venus Gateway, which will emphasize whatever chakra gateway the moon and venus are learning about or expressing. You can learn more about these Venus Gateways or Venus Cycles by going to that part of my website.

Pisces Venus or 12th house are mysterious and changeable. You are vulnerable to losing yourself in love. You have ultrafeminine qualities that make others want to rescue you. ....or perhaps you be trying to save the other person? You must save yourself first. In saving others, you can lose energy unless there is reciprocal sharing.

Sometimes you are the picture of happiness only to suddenly and unexpectantly plunge into the depths of sorrow. You do not want to have others tell you to pull yourself together because your emotions and creative imaginings are the true you. You'll want a true Soul Mate that appreciates and joins you in your sanctuary of imagination and shared intimacy.

As you learn to weed out those who would take advantage of you in love, your Venus in Pisces attains a strong spiritual connection, and your character becomes stronger and more stable. Love is a mystical experience for you. You see through rose-colored glasses. This can be hard on the one you love if you are always expecting them to be DIVINE.

For you, love can be a mystical experience with the right person. You're impressionable, so it's important to learn to weed out those that would take advantage of your sensitive and yielding nature. You tend to fall in love at first sight, and you might not see the red flags passing in front of your face. Even if someone treats you badly, you're liable to hold onto the connection, choosing to see through rose-colored glasses.


You see deeply into other people's souls. This is how you choose your loved ones. 

You seek peace with a beloved other. Pisces Venus may be in love with love itself.
