How Venus Guides Us

Venus is the planet of love, relationships, and money; all things we rely on each and every day of our lives. This means that Venus’s energy has a great impact on our lives from the time we are born to the moment we depart planet Earth. Venus is the ruling planet of Taurus and Libra. Venus directs your capacity to love, for contentment, to enjoy art, and to have fun. Venus also shows how you give and receive pleasure, especially sexual pleasure.

Venus influences our one-on-one relationships with people and our relationship with money. The old adage, “Do what you love and the money will follow” is definitely for those who are heavily influenced by Venus in their charts. Most people believe that work is difficult and money comes hard and never enough when it comes.

What do you love to do? This is the million-dollar question. What type of work lights your heart up, gives you a feeling of timelessness, happiness, purpose, and freedom? This work is your path to money and your clear connection to Venus, the planet of love and money. Most people are not born having a clear understanding of what they are good at or will find success in. But through guidance, education, and trial and error, many will find a profession that will provide them with a sense of accomplishment and success. But be careful, because success is not just money according to Venus. Success is fun, friends, comfort, relaxation, love, and sex. It’s rare to have all at once, but Venus is the path to achieving a wonderful balance. In some ways Venus in her Libra expression is dedicated to harmony. Here she seeks out paths to pleasing others, aesthetics, and relating. In Libra, Venus wants to be with others but she wants it be harmonious and problem-free. In Taurus, Venus loves her comforts. She loves food, wine, drinking, and music. She desires an environment that is comfortable and filled with things she loves. In both zodiac signs sex is very important as an expression of comfort and love. And for both signs a career is highly valued and money is expected.

Taurus and Libra usually have the best time with Venus, but depending on where Venus lands in your personal chart, you’ll discover how you best use and earn money.

If you believe that by doing what you love the money will follow, consider finding your relationships to Venus in your chart. This will lead to learning what you love. When you begin doing what you love to do, you’ll feel different. You’ll feel ignited from within as if you’ve found yourself. You’ll feel at home with your work and the money will follow. It’s not magic, so be consistent and stay the course. Because you’re doing what you love, you won’t be able to just let it go when things get tough. And in due time, in true Venus style, the money will flow.
