Planet Venus

The love goddess

Venus

Venus is one of the most beloved planets, for one simple reason: love, baby! Venus takes just under a month to move from one horoscope sign to another. In her Roman form, Venus is known as the goddess of love; in Astrology, it's really no different. This flirty planet is focused on passion and partnerships of all kinds, from business to marriage. But Venus goes beyond human attraction -- it's also the planet of beauty. Whether it’s our personal looks, or the style of clothes, cars or landscapes that catch your eye, all aesthetic tastes are inspired by Venus. 

Since this planet’s all about romance, your approach to love and flirting are determined by Venus and which horoscope sign she’s in. For example, if Venus is in fiery Aries, you may feel more bold than usual about asking a stranger for their number ... or suddenly feel inspired to pop the question! If Venus is in rational Virgo, however, you may obsess over the details of how to approach a love interest, or reassess your current relationship.

But Venus’ influence is best symbolized by earthy Taurus and airy Libra, the two signs over which she rules. While Libra is the glamorous sign of partnership, slow and steady Taurus demonstrates Venus' grittier, pleasure-seeking nature.
