Venus in the Houses

Jul 21, 2020

Venus is often referred to as the planet of love, but understanding your Venus sign tells you more than what you’re attracted to. 

Venus tells us how we relate to other people and what our social values are. It shows how you express emotions in personal relationships, including friends and coworkers. It shows how you best receive love and what motivates your actions. It shows what makes you desirable, which means embodying your Venus sign for any gender will give you the ability to grow flowers wherever you walk (or at least walk with confidence).  

Venus is never more than 48 degrees from the Sun, which means your Venus is in the two signs before or after your Sun sign, or in the same sign as your Sun. You can easily determine your Venus sign online (download a free chart here). If you don’t know your birth time, you won’t be able to tell which house your Venus falls in, but you can still determine the sign.

Use the descriptions below to understand your Venus sign.

Before reading the signs, have you learned about the three important things you need to look at to understand your Venus sign?

1st house

When Venus is in your first house, it is in the same sign as your Ascendent. This means that matters of relationships, beauty, creativity, love and romance will be of more significance in your life. You are more likely to be attractive, whether it is in a conventional beauty sense or simply that other people seem to like you. You can attract people more easily to you. 

Your appearance might be something that you have strong feelings about, whether it’s maintaining your appearance or that it seems to be a big part of who you are. Relationships are important to you, although you also need to have time for yourself. 


2nd house 

As the second house is about values, having Venus here makes our self-worth and at times financial status important markers of our success in relationships. Depending on what sign rules the house, you can be gifted with money, whether through your own efforts or others. The way you feel about yourself is critical to your own success, so it’s important for you to feel like you can put your best foot forward. 

Making connections with others will help you achieve financial security and enhance your own feelings about yourself. You might do well in business or entrepreneurial efforts where building your network is a key part of your role. 


3rd house

You care deeply about your community. Whether it is your siblings, young people you work with, or friends and neighbors, you give your all when you feel like you are making a difference to the people you serve every day. There can be an almost spiritual element to your commitment to the people you care for. 

Communication might be part of something you do, whether it’s writing or organizing. You might enjoy talking to others about intellectually stimulating ideas or being part of a book club. It’s important for you to be surrounded by others who are interested in expanding their minds too. 


4th house

Your home is valuable to you and you are more likely to put efforts into making it a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing space. You might enjoy the act of creation in your home, whether that’s making art to put up on your own walls or crafting things to give to others. Family commitments play an important role in your life, whether you have a positive relationship with your birth family or you find ways to create your own version of family. Harmony in the home is something you need to feel secure. You might enjoy having people in your home, depending on what sign your Venus falls in, or like taking care of yourself in your own sanctuary. 


5th house

Venus has its joy in the 5th house, so you are likely to have a fun personality that people enjoy. You maintain a childlike sense of play throughout your life. You enjoy creating and like to do things that others might not attempt. You may give birth to noteworthy things, whether they are creative projects or children. Having fun is important to you, although depending on what sign your Venus is in you might enjoy a balance of structure with your fun. You want to be surrounded by people who are willing to play and not be so serious they can’t have fun. 


6th house

Acts of service play an important role in how you give and receive love. You are likely to be reliable in your relationships, although at times you may be resentful for it. Depending on what sign your Venus is in, creativity or molding things into reality could be part of your day-to-day life. You might overextend yourself in relationships. Health matters might be a focus either in a concern about maintaining personal appearance or as a key component of your relationship with other people. 

7th house

With Venus in the house of relationships, this will be a key focus of your life. You have to cooperate with other people, but you need to find a healthy balance between your needs and other people’s needs. Learning to advocate for yourself will be important, and being clear about when you’re doing something because you want to do it or if you are doing it to make someone else happy. You’re meant to experience many different kinds of relationships and will likely need to experience some heartbreaks on the path to finding your true self. Family relationships may play a larger role in your life than in others as well. 


8th house

A deep commitment is important to you in relationships. You crave a connection with others that feels spiritually led. Relationships do not come easily. Learning about shared commitments is important, but overcommitment also needs to be paid attention to. Financial obligations in relationships are more likely, but inheritances are also sometimes found. You might benefit from your friendships or from the friendships of the people around you, financially or in a soul-fulfilling way. As you get older, a spiritual relationship might become more important to you. Depending on the sign that rules your Venus, you might be intimidating in relationships. 


9th house

You enjoy being able to explore new worlds with the people you are in relationships with. Travel might be important, or you might like playing imaginative games with your friends and loved ones. You might enjoy talking about ideas or sharing the news with the people around you and feel fulfilled when you can inform people of things. It’s how you show you care. You might enjoy studying and daydreaming and have an active mind. If you are spiritually inclined, you might have a strong relationship with a higher source of energy and could even be inclined to giving spiritual guidance to others. 


10th house

When people know you, they know you, and they’re seeking you out. With Venus in the house of reputation and occupation you are more likely to attract people who will positively influence your career. You might be more likely to gain notoriety and you actually enjoy putting yourself out there and connecting with other people. Relationships with parents and children might be a more notable part of your life. You are motivated by advancement and might be inclined to start your own business. 


11th house

With Venus in the 11th house, you are exceptionally talented at bringing people together. Whether you throw the best parties or have a vision for bringing a community together and high ideals around equality, you are a people person. You are more likely to be charming and have good friends. You are also likely to be a generous friend, possibly someone who bestows gifts. Your ability to bring people together is enhanced by your ability to make things look nice—you know what it takes for people to be impressed. 


12th house

You are likely to crave a more soulful connection with someone else. This can sometimes lead you on a path of not looking at reality in relationships because you are afraid of what you might find. It’s important for you to be curious and ask questions in relationships, especially if you have a hard time knowing what’s going on. It is important for you to have reliable friends who can give you practical advice about relationships.
