Famous people with Venus in the 7th house: Charlie Chaplin, Marlin Manson, J. K Rowling, Russel Crow.

The 7th house is very important angle in any Birth Chart; it is also called the Descendent.

What happens when your Venus is in the 7th house?  To simplify, your sense of value, confidence and well-being becomes very dependent on other people.

Venus is strongly related to our sense of confidence and self-love. It shows how we love ourselves, our self-presentation to the world through artistic means such as style. It is also related to how popular we are socially and to the things we enjoy doing for pleasure. It is a very happy planet and can give insight into those areas of standing secure on our two feet (Taurus) and our movement in the world as we connect to other people (Libra).With Venus here, relationships take center stage and the desire for love is extensive.

It can go in two directions: You can be very popular and well received by other people or you can feel unloved and even hated. Sometimes even at the same time!

As a person you know how to express affection from a young age. Your warmth, sweetness and joy were your gifts. Depending on how you were raised you will deal this gift to the world. If parents were cold and did not respond to your love nature you will become ashamed and try and hide it. As a teenager your attractiveness will make it impossible to avoid dating so it is likely you came out of hiding. You will then learn that love was only to be found in romantic relationships or sexual intimacy. This version of Libra Venus uses its charm to attract other people and to not feel ashamed or alone. They do not feel real confidence in themselves and sometimes even feel guilty to be so gifted. These men and women chase a romantic dream of love- where they will be accepted and all will be ok. The love they lacked as children will finally be given to them. All they must do? Keep being charming, beautiful and to give people what they want.

Of course, this is true for any Venus! But the Libra Venus bases so much of Its self-esteem not on worldly achievement (10th house) creativity (5th house) or nurturing abilities (4th house) instead it is very much about having another person by their side.

It doesn’t matter to them that the relationship is not perfect or even broken. They feel fulfilled at having someone who can be their mirror and show them their positive traits.

Not to sound too gloomy, I think many Venus in Libra go through a phase of needing and wanting a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that. As long as it leads them to the higher developed version of this beautiful Venus.

You see, Venus in Libra gets to know itself through the love of other people. It needs to explore relationships of all kind: From friends to enemy’s, they need to experience the full rainbow of human interaction. it is their food for growth. They choose career that involve dealing with people or human relationships. They become experts on the topic and know how to solve people’s problems in this area. Why? Because they have so many problems in relationships! So they enjoy learning how to solve such things. Work out arguments, strengthen intimacy and harmony. They also enjoy watching human interaction unfold even from the side lines. So getting caught up in gossip, drama and strange stories is not uncommon. Turning their need into a career can be a smart move for them, because they can find rational and practical tools to deal with relationships. So studying counseling, law or drama is helpful.

Many Venus in Libra enjoy esthetics, especially if those involve social topics and human psychology. Those with artistic careers deal with human-relations and social issues in music, film and drama. It all leads back to their need to understand why love isn’t there for everyone. Why can’t everyone receive love equally? Why can’t we live in a society built on partnership?

These folks genuinely care about such questions and will spend their life figuring it out.

They are very charming and attractive and can use this understanding for good and bad. Many dictators and cult leaders have Venus in the 7th house. Their charm is a power that if they feel alone and misunderstood- they use as a weapon. If they grow away from that hurt they can instead inspire others to love who they are and accept that everyone is divine and beautiful in their own right.

You see, they are stronger than they appear because they their Venus means they would always find some sense of inner light eve when times are hard. They imply need to stop searching for it on the outside and look at what they bring to the table.

Usually, for this Venus how people treat them reflects their inner state. If they repress fear or anger they will receive it right away. The world is like a mirror to the process of their growth so paying attention to that- and understanding how it works can be healing.

In seeking a partner, they must be very careful that he relationship is fair. That both partners come in from similar values. Not uncommon for this Venus to step into a very unfair relationship. If well placed marriage is a very happy and romantic affair that gives them strength to fulfill all their goals in the world. In friendships they should try and have a wider circle of friends so they don’t get too stuck with one group of people. Ultimately developing a strong individual set of values that will carry them into a more stable and happy life. For that, exploring different places, people, relationships, philosophies of love- is needed. This quote sums it up perfectly:

“There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us,
it doesn’t behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us” said a Venus in Pisces in the 7th house Edgar Cayce.



Finding Love and Astrology

Today’s post is going to be a little different and even a bit more personal perhaps. Love is something we all need and want and today I want to talk about that. When we think of love,we think about that person that can complete us and love us as we love them. Everyones definition of love is different but we all agree its a positive thing. I agree love is the most beautiful experience we humans can have. But  I also think love can be confused with passion,need,fear,attraction,you see the dangers here? from an astrological point of view this is even more evident. We all have deep emotional needs and just by looking at your moon placement this needs can be revealed to you. But is the person that is going to fulfill this need be the right one for you? not necessarily. You can fall in love and have a great connection with someone but that doesn’t promise a lasting and healthy relationship for you both. So when looking at your birth chart look at it as a whole not just the Moon,Venus or Mars. When a friend asked me once to tell her if she had a future with a boyfriend I realized how important it is to see the whole picture. she is a beautiful cancer sun with Libra moon and rising and her loved one a Scorpio sun. That was all the information I had about him. So I decided to rely on her chart alone and talk to her about her needs and patterns in relationships. In other words,love calls for self understanding more then compatibility with any zodiac sign. If you know who you are then you can build a relationship that lasts and makes you happy. Instead of looking for someone to complete you,be complete on your own. Love should be two people adding more to each others whole and growing better and stronger together. What about passion you ask? attractions is like a primitive compass towards a person that could be good for you. A woman with Mars in Aries would like man that acts like and Aries. It doesn’t mean she need to date one! Instead she can know what she likes and search for that in a partner. Don’t get me wrong,If you know your partners birth chart then that is useful. You should get to know and understand him or her the same way. Don’t search if you are compatible! Instead search to understand him or her in the best way you can.

Here is an overview of what each planet can tell you about love in your life:

Sun: Where you need to take center stage in a relationship,where you feel at ease at the beginning of a relationship.

Moon: The kind of connection you seek and how you react to love,anger,fear in relationships.

Mercury: How do you communicate In love and friendships? what kind of conversation you enjoy and need? Do you need marriage or friendship and a non traditional relationship?

Venus: How do you express love? do you touch,kiss,talk or stay silent with a dreamy look in your eyes?

what kind of environment or values you need to have love? (The perfect woman)

Mars: How to you handle you active life?  How you show anger and how strong your sex drive? (the perfect man)

Saturn: Your hardships and your triumphs,the long lasting partnerships.

Jupiter: Where you are lucky in love and what spiritual values you hold.

Rising sign:  How you look to potential lovers and how you express yourself when you hide who you are.

Tell me  what is love in your opinion?

Do you think astrology should be used to find love? or do you agree its only  a tool for self knowing?

Have a beautiful day
