The Value in your Venus



People can be bloody annoying, no doubt about it.  The driver that pulls out in front of you unexpectedly, the shop keeper who was plain rude or perhaps the guy standing in the queue at the supermarket who smells like he hasn't seen soap and water for years. (It happens in Mullumbimby where I live, I can tell you, the alternative lifestyle has it's side effects!)

No matter how spiritual, tolerant and loving we may think we are, it doesn't prevent some people annoying the hell out of us. Sometimes it seems impossible to accept someone elses approach to life.

We are all walking around experiencing our own reality, from our own perspective and sometimes, hard as we may try, its a challenge to understand where someone else is coming from.Yet is it because we all have variable priorities when it it come to what is important?  The guy who cut us off may value his own needs more than others, or the smelly guy in the queue believes going natural is more important than smell.

Many years ago when I began to study astrology, I quickly realised that one of the greatest gifts of understanding someone's personal planetary make up was the gift of acceptance.  After all, if someone has ten water signs in their chart and cries easily, is it really their fault? If someone with an overdose of the element fire in their natal chart displays a restless nature and seems attention seeking, perhaps they just need a creative outlet to express themselves and they haven't worked that out yet.

The planet Venus is ruled by the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and its placement in our chart not only indicates what elicits our love, how we fall in love and what we love, it also shows us our base values. What is really important to us ?

Below is a list of Venus in the signs and what values are important to each one, If you don't know where Venus was when you were born go to http://alabe.com/freechart/ and plug in your birth details for a free chart and look for what sign Venus is in. It's fine if you don't know your birth time. You can also work out what Venus signs your loved ones have to further your understanding of them. 

So next time before we judge someone, perhaps we should take a deep breath and accept them for who they are. Easier said than done sometimes I know, but there's always room for self improvement!

If your Venus is in;

ARIES; You value action, possibly sport or movement based activities, you expect honesty from all yet value conflict, conflict makes you grow.
TAURUS; You value stability, solidness and you like to know what is going to happen next. You value things you can touch and see and sensuality. Good quality products reign, never give a Venus in Taurus a cheap or tacky present, they love quality and the good things in life.
GEMINI; You value a good mind, interesting opinions and great thought provoking conversations. You value those who are good listeners for your chatter.
CANCER; Family is everything to you, your best case scenario is a loving secure family unit. You value creativity, art and beautiful ambiance.
LEO: You value your heart connected friends, colour, romance and excitement. A drab or grey world would never do for you. You value good business sense.
VIRGO; You value organisation, clarity, solid promises and punctuality, a clean environment. Nature is important to your equilibrium.
LIBRA: Harmony within all relationships are paramount to you. You value the arts, music and beauty. Conflict amongst people is abhorrent to you.
SCORPIO; You value honesty, loyalty and intensity. You can be frank and to the point and at times, insensitive, as you value the truth over subtleties.
SAGITTARIUS; You value truth and the bigger perspective on things which is why you are often accused of being insensitive. You value a quest, a mission and a higher purpose.
CAPRICORN; Even if you live an alternative lifestyle, when it comes down to it, you value tradition and solidness in people, you abhor flakiness and false promises.
AQUARIUS; You value your freedom immensely and always feel your way of doing things is the only way, often you are right. You value history and the future and see how it interconnects.
PISCES:You value your own and others feelings enormously. You value your spirituality and often follow your intuition more than logic.
