Venus is the symbol of all things love, beauty, money, and power and the ruler of Taurus and Libra.

Famous people with Venus in the fifth house include Barack Obama, Khloe Kardashian, and Tina Turner.

She is passionate and strong in her ability to guide a person through life. Look to Venus for relationships that last.

Venus is responsible for our interpersonal connections to others. It dictates whether we are more open or closed off lovers.


But why is it that one person's Venus can be in the same zodiac sign as another's but express their love differently.

House systems in astrology reveal how each planet reacts in a person's natal chart.

There are 12 astrological houses and 12 zodiac signs but all planets move at the same pace.

Venus orbits the Sun it takes about 20 days to transition between signs.

This means that Venus will cycle all 12 zodiac signs in under a year.

In astrology, each planet is responsible for a different aspect of your life.

Whether it be communication or success, the planets are assigned a house at the time of our birth.

Since Venus rules partnerships, it reveals if we are the type of person who needs space. For example, Venus in Scorpio can imply a zodiac sign who loves in a clingy way.

A planet's zodiac sign placement tells what it does and in what way. The house placement explains why and what we value most in our romantic and platonic relationships.

By identifying your Venus placement, you can get a closer look into the things you need from others and why you feel the way that you do.

Knowing your planetary position isn't enough, it also important to know which house your chart displays because this is where your Venus energy will be most heavily concentrated.


Just as there are 12 astrological signs, there are 12 astrological houses.

  1. Self
  2. Value
  3. Communication
  4. Home and family
  5. Pleasure
  6. Health
  7. Partnerships
  8. Reincarnation
  9. Philosophy
  10. Status
  11. Friendships
  12. Undoing

So, for example, if your Mercury positioning is in Libra and in the ninth house, you are likely to be an intellect who is very diplomatic and curious about the unknown.

You like to learn about policy, ethics, history, and philosophy to better understand the way we all communicate.
