We all have 10 planets in our birth chart and they always operate better in some signs than in others. When a specific planet is in a sign that is very beneficial it is considered ‘at home’ in that sign and operates in a very powerful way. Alternatively, planets can be considered ‘at their fall, or at their detriment’ in some signs, and they do not operate as well here or are weaker.

Let’s take for example Venus, the planet of love, money, beauty and values. Venus is one of the most important placements in a chart as it concerns the way we love, express affection, who we attract or are attracted to, where we find our pleasure and the things in life we find pleasing.


Venus in each sign has its positive and negative traits, but let’s take a look take a look at the best Venus signs and placements and why these are considered the best.
