What Is Venus In Astrology?

When we hear about Venus in astrological terms, one word comes to everyone’s mind… Love. Venus is named after the goddess of love and indeed, this is one of this planet’s primary themes. However, Venus means so much more…

Venus: Love, Wealth, Values, Beauty

Venus represents the finer things in life. In a sense, it shows what we value. Because Venus doesn’t just mean romance and flirting. Whatever sign Venus resides in our chart shows us what makes us feel loved and in love with life.

In short, Venus is not just about romance. Venus in our chart shows us our love language and what we embrace to live a life we love.”

Your Venus is…

  • your love language
  • for feminine dominant men and women: how they want to be in a relationship
  • for masculine dominant men and women: what they seek in a partner (and still, how they feel loved)
  • what you like to do to live a life that feels luxurious

  • understand your love language
  • live a life that you’re in love with
