Venus represents your Way of Relating. Its placement in Sign and House reveals how we appreciate pleasure, beauty, art, creativity, our interactions with our environment, and our interactions with the people in our lives.

Consider the chart of an individual with Venus in Aries in the 6th House. Aires is a Fire Sign. Fire’s expression is pioneering, creative, and exploratory. In Aries, the Element acts independently, heroically, and aggressively. So, the key phrase is “Your Way of Relating manifests through your independent and heroic quest for and attraction to maverick and individualistic service for others.” In short, they prefer to work with and relate to people who are their equals and who can manage themselves, eschewing the role of manager and employee.

Venus expresses itself through a Sign and acts most powerfully in an area of your life by House. This section will look at all 12 Sign and House placements for Venus. It is important to make a clear distinction between the Sign and House. While it is correct that each Zodiac Sign rules a particular House, it is vital not to conflate the two.

Venus in Aries is not the same as Venus in the 1st House even though Aries rules the first House.
