Venus In The Natal Houses

Venus, in general, is the planet of relationships and beloved ones. It represents all that is beautiful and harmonious and it promotes balance.

The house Venus is found in, tells more about the environment in which you find balance, well-being and harmony.

Remember that the houses represent the environment and point to WHERE things happen.

In other words, Venus in the natal houses will describe where you find balance, beauty, beloved ones and relationships.

Unlike lots of other sources, we are only listing empirically and statistically researched delineations.

We split up the delineations in 'general meanings' (irrespective of the gender), descriptions which were found to be more significant in male charts and the meanings that were found to be more significant in female charts.

This way, we hope to bring some top-notch and more to-the-point descriptions not found anywhere else.

Also know that when Venus is conjunct a house cusp but not in the house itself, the delineations may not apply.

When Venus is just in front of a house and not in the house itself, the planetary meanings start to differ because Venus acts like a connector binding both houses together in some way.

Planetary aspects to Venus may alter some of the descriptions as well.

The same holds true for the zodiac signs Venus is posited in that may alter the background of how Venus manifests.

When Venus is conjunct another body or planet or if there is a stellium in the house Venus is posited in, the delineations may vary too.

The delineations we provide are archetypal meanings found in charts where Venus is the only planet in the house.

Descriptions in bold are very significant and almost infallible.
