In Astrology – Chart Interpretation
Venus represents our drive to relate to others and how we make or break relationships with other people. The position of Venus in the natal chart by sign, house and aspect determines how you express your feelings and how you react emotionally towards other people. The placement of Venus in a man’s chart will reveal how he relates to women. This planet stands for love, comfort, beauty, pleasure and sensuality as well as wealth and happiness. In astronomical terms its ‘attachment’ to the Sun links the ego with emotional impressions therefore this planet is often called the ’emotional antenna’ of the horoscope.
femininity, warmth, charm, fulfillment, art, music, values, money, sociability and laziness
