Venus rules 2 Zodiac Signs. They are Taurus and Libra.
The cycle of Venus through the whole 12 Signs of the Zodiac is a year. Venus, as well as Mercury, does not have the same exactness as the cycle of the Sun because it too has a retrograde cycle, once every 18 months or so.
Venus, like Mercury, is always quite close to the Sun. Venus can be just that bit further away. So Venus will, at times, be the same as the Sun Sign and up to 2 signs before the Sun Sign or 2 signs after the Sun Sign.
So if we use the example of an Aries Sun Sign again, it would be possible for Venus to be in the same sign of Aries but if it is either one or two signs back, Venus could be in Pisces or Aquarius. If Venus happens to be in either of the signs ahead of Aries, this could be Taurus or Gemini. To work this out for any other Sun Sign look at the following order of the Zodiac Signs. Count 2 sign’s back from the sign you have chosen. Then 2 sign’s forward. Venus can be in any one of these 5 signs (including the sign you have chosen).
The order of the Zodiac Signs are:
Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Venus is the planet of balance and harmony, so when a person is born with Venus in the same Zodiac Sign as their Sun Sign, they will seek balance and harmony in their life. This will be important to them.
Venus is the planet of relating. The sign of Venus shows the types of people a person will attract and be attracted to. This will not only represent love relationships, but friendships and people one may come into contact with through work or any situation which involves them on a regular basis with certain people. When a person feels instantly comfortable with someone else this is usually because Venus in their Horoscope is making a harmonious connection to a planet in the other person’s Horoscope.
It is very common for people to marry someone whose Sun Sign is the same as the Zodiac sign of Venus in their own Horoscope. Both person’s Sun Signs may not be compatible at all but there will be much harmony because of this Venus connection. This is why compatibility cannot be judged on Sun Signs alone.
Venus also shows the person’s attitude to money. People born with Venus in a practical Zodiac Sign will be careful and practical with money. People born with Venus in a carefree Zodiac Sign will be this way with money. This has nothing to do with their Sun Sign and this is why some people who are born a practical Sun Sign are not necessarily practical with money. Venus will probably be found in a carefree sign.
The Zodiac sign in which a person has their Venus will show the type of work that will be attractive to them. Venus shows how a person will enjoy earning their money.
Venus also shows the types of things, which are of value in a person’s life. Value here is not referring to money value. A person’s values are the standards they set, their morals or their beliefs. Values represent what is important to a person, what is desirable, what is worthwhile or significant. Values are what a person holds in high regard. Sometimes this is money but mostly it is not money, it is other things and the Zodiac Sign of Venus shows the types of things.
