Sun Venus Connections

To understand the concept of Sun Venus connections we first have to go back into the past for a moment.

In the early 80s a "new" approach of assessing major themes in a natal chart saw the light by the "invention" of the so-called "ZIP Code."

It was a method invented by Dr. Zipporah Dobyns (hence the name "ZIP Code") and further propagated by her daughter Maritha Pottenger, that made use of the so-called astrological alphabet.

The concept of the astrological alphabet is that astrology deals with twelve basic ways of being, twelve human drives and modes of operation that are all needed in this world.

These twelve sides of life are mirrored in the natal chart by a planet, a house and a sign.

So it is in the astrological alphabet that Mars, the 1st house and Aries all share the same principles (though they are NOT the same!).

Venus, the 2nd house and Taurus also share the same principles and this goes on for the other planets, signs and houses.

What the theory of the ZIP Code or astrological alphabet presents is that certain groups of planet/house/sign combinations share similar themes.

For example: Mars in Libra or Mars in the 7th house share the same principles. The 7th house is in mundane astrology a Libra house (wathever zodiac sign is on the cusp of the 7th house in the natal chart).

This system has been enhanced by German astrologers who developed their own system based on the same principles but they converted the signs and houses to their respective planetary rulers.

For example: Mars in Libra becomes a Mars/Venus theme because Venus always rules Libra. Mars in the 7th house too becomes a Mars/Venus theme because the 7th house is associated with Libra, which is ruled by Venus in mundane astrology.

Also, the ruler of the 1st house (in mundane astrology ruled by Mars because Mars always rules Aries and Aries is always the 1st sign in the natural order of the zodiac) in the 2nd house (in mundane astrology ruled by Venus as the ruler of Taurus) is another Venus-Mars analogy.

The more you find such analogies, themes or connections between two planets, the more this planetary combination becomes an important part of the natal chart and the life of the native.

To find out the connections or analogies between planets, we take especially into account:

  • planets in zodiac signs
  • planets in houses
  • the aspects between planets (the tighter the stronger)
  • the rulerships
  • solstice points

Planets in houses are more important and powerful than the planets in the zodiac signs because they work on a more personal and individual level (we use the Topocentric house system which gives almost the same results as the Placidus house system).

When do we have Sun Venus connections, themes or analogies?

In most cases, the following configuartions are used (there are more though (!) to define Sun Venus connections but this would lead us too far and make it more complicated than necessary):

  • Venus in the 5th house
  • the Sun in the 2nd or the 7th house
  • the ruler of the 5th house in the 7th house
  • the ruler of the 7th house in the 5th house
  • the ruler of the 2nd house in the 5th house
  • the ruler of the 5th house in the 2nd house
  • Venus in a close conjunction, square or opposition with the Sun (a very exact sextile or trine counts too but in a minor way)
  • Venus at the solstice point of the Sun
  • the Sun in Libra or Taurus
  • Venus in Leo

When at least three of the above listed analogies or connections can be found in the natal chart, we have a very powerful Sun Venus connection that will be felt and noticed in the character and life of the native.

What do Sun Venus connections signify?

The Sun Venus connection makes for a very gentle combination.

Often, the native has a beautiful body and a very pleasing appearance.

There is a lot of appeal and a sense of aesthetics.

In everything they do, they are aesthetically-oriented.

The downside of this connection is the inability to face hard facts and challenges.

The native is too sensitive to get on well with assertive behavior and needs a peaceful and harmonious environment.

Interestingly, to balance this out, they can be attracted to highly domineering partners.

Also, people with a Sun Venus connection want to live a comfortable life.

Taking decisions and making (hard and clear) choices is difficult and they tend to vacillate between opposites and possibilities forever.

They are not decisive at all.

Though they can be very obsessed with their own (physical) body, they not always like to be touched.

They rather keep a distance.

In matters of love, they really cling to the partner -- often in an unhealthy way.

This is especially noticeable in the natal charts of women who have a predominant Sun Venus connection.

Perhaps this has to do with or is the result of the influences of the father.

In some cases they are attracted to older partners who can bring some experience and more security into their life.

The Sun Venus connection implies some lazy behavior, devoid of struggle and the native can be spoiled.

They need to become 'stronger' -- if possible at all -- if they don't want to be taken advantage of all the time.

Depending upon other powerful connections, the Sun Venus connection may indicate difficulties in the love life and it may bring suffering in this area.

Because of the passive side of this connection, the native is not always able to overcome the struggles in life.

There is always the need of 'the other', someone else, a partner -- for good or ill.

It's the outer environment, external situations, the partner or other people that keep them going.

Females can be very sensual and romantic.

All the natives with Sun Venus connections are sociable and love social activities.
