Venus – Ruler of Taurus and Libra – Attraction

This is they glyph for Venus: the universal symbol for female.

Venus rules the signs Taurus and Libra.

Early astrologers noticed that Venus also travels with the Sun, although not in the same way as Mercury. Mercury seems to zip to and fro, while Venus takes her time. She goes farther away from the Sun and then gradually slows down every 18 months, then moves slowly back to meet him again, like a lover.

Venus is the goddess of love. Her placement in your chart will show how you demonstrate your affection to others, also what kind of love you want and need.

Venus describes your:

  • Love
  • Aesthetic tastes
  • Need for beauty and harmony, pleasure and comfort
  • Social interaction, Hanging Out
  • Art, Music
  • Money and Possessions

She represents these people:

  • Women and Social Groups

She rules these parts of the body:

  • the Neck and Shoulders.
  • Sugar and carbohydrate metabolism

Because Venus and Mercury are inside the Earth’s orbit, from our perspective they can never be too far away from the Sun. Mercury is never more than one sign away from the Sun, and Venus is never farther than two signs away.
