Venus Signs And Beauty Routines

Filed in ZODIAC FASHION

Your Venus sign reflects your attitude toward skincare, grooming, cosmetic aesthetic, and self-maintenance. Do you know your Venus sign? If yes, read on. If not, you can find out via one of my instant Astral DNA reports.

Some people feel a skincare regime to be insanely comforting, a guaranteed this-will-happen ritual. It’s meditative; no matter what else fails to come to fruition that day, they will care for their complexion. It is similar to the way people in the military get taught to make their beds immaculately every day. It is a ritual of intellectual order and an affirmation that they will return to it that evening.

Others loathe the very concept of anything regimented but invest psychic energy into cosmetics. It takes on totemic value, like my story with the face power.  Everything around us charged with energy. Ask any shaman or quantum physicist.  Rituals, affirmations, and spells intensify an energetic transaction that is already taking place. If you are going to be doing something anyway, you may as well put some magic into it. Cleaning your teeth, for example, is a way of honoring Saturn and his associated themes of structure, bone, and longevity. To wash your face with a beautiful smelling floral essence infused cleanser is acknowledging Venus.

If Your Venus Sign Is Aries, You Want Things To Happen Fast.

If you’re wise about the products you’re using – or make them yourself – you’re also supporting a healthy ecology – yours and that of the planet.

But back to your Venus sign and how it influences your style of upkeep. Here are my thoughts. Venus in Aries is the most likely to attempt cold showers and fast-tracked revamps. Results by next week are not good enough. Venus in Taurus is a traditionalist in perfume and skincare, investing in quality products and names that they trust. If you have Venus in Gemini, your attention span is fleeting. You don’t want a regime, and you’re bored by doing the same thing all the time. But if there is an “it” lip gloss, you have it already. The Venus in Cancer person likes comfort and textural pleasure; a fluffy fresh white face cloth and music playing while a face mask soaks in. They can go all High Priestess at the altar when applying face oils for the evening.

If your Venus sign is Leo, you appreciate dramatic results and theatrical make up effects. You will be on excellent terms with a beauty therapist and see high maintenance as a sign of self-respect. Venus in Virgo researches product like a scientist on deadline for a dictator. They find out how to get the active ingredient for as little cost as possible. And, not only that, without add-ins like lubricants and probably poisonous scent. If your Venus sign is Libra, you’re adept at beauty. You’re a Venus Person, and you gain sensual pleasure from every aspect of self-care. Venus in Scorpio people are more likely to be obsessed with a modality: Hot Yoga, Colonics, Raw Food Diet, Acupuncture. It will be a belief system, and everything else will ping off that.

Venus In Cancer Goes All High Priestess At The Altar When Applying Face Oils For The Evening

The Venus in Sagittarius person is classically low-maintenance and disdains money spent on product or make-up when they could be skiing, traveling or doing something. Being hyperactive and open-minded is their beauty regime. Venus in Capricorn has old-money approaches to all of it. They’re more likely to religiously keep appointments with their dentist, dermatologist, and Pilates teacher than enhance features. If your Venus sign is Aquarius, you have a digital consciousness and may alternate between forgetting you have a body and taking up super-ahead-of-the-Zeitgeist approaches to beauty. Aquarius Venus people will purchase a lung exercising machine to improve their complexion before booking a peel.

Finally, Venus in Pisces, the Venus of fluidity and moods. If this is your Venus sign, you could spend weeks with a regime that barely involves cleaning your teeth and then whirl up into a ten-step face care routine.

Pisces Sun Leo Rising. I don’t do anything that seems to equate with self-care / beauty regime. The only thing different I’ve felt compelled to do lately is I’ve started washing my hair with shampoo and conditioner for the first time in 3 years. Don’t really think about wearing makeup unless I’m ‘going out’. I’ll shave my legs and underarms in summer. I used to go to the gym but I’ve given that up in the last 2 months and just going with the flow of however fat I get.

As a Horse, grooming me gives me total delight.
If not working reading watching HBO series or shopping and writing lists, then i’m grooming myself from top to toe. Grooms are not easy to find nowadays..

Hmmm, *mindful touch is a form of loving*. So very true – it is essential to life.
Very premature babies can die if not touched. Those that are touched and gently massaged thrive and live.
I adore being touched & groomed too – which is probably why we do bodywork? 🙂

Leo sun. My routine is mostly hair related LOL. Usually I wash with ‘No poo’ products by deva curl. once every 3 days or so. Today I bought an instyler thing with a brush for smoothing and spent an hour straighting my hair~ very unusual for me lol… For beauty routine I’ve been using some plant derived products by Origins, but I’m always trying the next new thing never stuck on any particular product.(12th house leo sun, venus/uranus conjunct in leo1st house)

I have a 2 stage routine to get myself feeling better. A nice close shave and a no. 2 all over buzz cut. Shaving the face has to be the best exfoliate ever and hair to me is the remnant of the past that once gone feels like 20kgs is off your shoulders. Now I understand that women don’t shave their faces and few can give themselves a no. 2 every few weeks but I’m telling you girls it’s magic 😉

Clean shaven legs, David have a silken feel, waxing smoother of course but the aloe vera suffused Venus shaver is the one!
When i’m behind the person,at the head of the mass table and a person has a buzz cut which tickles my middle when i reach for their spine feels super cute 🙂
Was told Ancient Egyptians plucked EVERY hair from their body.
Strangely is was Scorpio mother who told me now i remember.

I think there’s something wrong with me… Venus in Cancer in the first house. I kind of use whatevs. Water? Hemp oil.
First house is Aries though.. So I guess not so interested in such things.

Venus square Pluto natally. No rituals, no totems, no skin interest at all.
I am amazed how popular this conversation is! I enjoy reading these comments, it’s enlightening.

Rock on! I have always envied those not interested in primping. A lot of hours are wasted each day trying to groom. I have a few friends who just roll out of bed and toss on some clothes and go to work like that. They are lucky to spray on deodorant or brush hair. I tried that sort of lifestyle while I was sick and dying to conserve energy. I tried ‘keeping kesh’ (like not cutting or grooming hairs) for like a year. I couldn’t keep doing it. I’m too venusian. Decorating the temple (myself) is how I show myself… Read more »

Well, I even have Sun in the Temple of Venus (I like this – no house – a Temple!) Leo in the Second House.

I do wear makeup, and I used to put quite a lot of effort in as I enjoy art and considered this a form of art! Just the skin issue.. healthy glow stuff. I dunno, I think it comes from the inside too.

I I LOATHE wearing mascara as it ALWAYS comes off around my eyes no matter which mascara and or primer I use. I’m just so over peer at my reflection at some random mirror when I’m out and about and having to rub all around my eyes trying to remove the black panda smudges. So not sexy or cool. I’ve pretty much stopped wearing it altogether lately in protest of this. I never thought I would as I love lashes but nix on the panda look and nix on “how do I look?” make-up malfunction paranoia syndrome. I’m tinting and… Read more »

I’m up in the shack and i’d forgotten my bath bag – which contains the few potions i do have – in the van which is parked 5 kms down a steep, windy road. Normally i would have freaked and hiked back down for it – Libra Rising & a Leo Moon & stellium demand standards. But this time i thought fuq it – i’ll do haute feral. Now i realise that i AM doing a super Pluto-Venusian beauty regime anyway. I’m swimming/washing in the mountain stream every day. I have no soap so I’ve been exfoliating with the sandy… Read more »

fwiw, perfect potion does these really yummy aromatic balms that you smudge wherever e.g. before you go to sleep, their lavender one is transcendental, i’ve had a jar for ages and wasn’t using it fast enough so i am using it more quickly as mega intense hand moisturiser, on feet (i am a pisces, nothing is too good for my feet), cuticles whatever.

With a Libra sun and Taurus moon, you’d think I’d have a serious, complex beauty regimin, but nsm. Lavender soap and inside day moisturizer, spf 15 moisturizer for days when I’ll be spending time outside. Biking, walking, and yoga for exercise (although I could stand to do more of each), and good sleep hygiene whenever I can manage. One new thing for me–I’ve started putting on perfume before going to bed. BPL’s “Vice” is great for falling asleep quickly and dreaming vividly. I’m also thinking of adding the B3 vitamins mentioned above.

I’m addicted to Aesop primrose hydrating moisturiser, that is my one every day beauty ritual. About four days a week i’ll get up early enough to do three salutes to the sun in the morning, better still if I can do a Deepak Chopra 15 minute meditation. I ride my bike to work twice a week, yoga class 1-2 times a week, walk and climb stairs as often as possible. Always get a really good haircut (my hairdresser of 30 years is amazing) but do my own colour. Currently my grey streaks are showing but I’m about to add some… Read more »

I’m such a fool. This venus thing for me isn’t about beauty. It’s about relating and pleasure. She’s transiting my 1st house right now, and uranus is conjunct my natal venus. No wonder I’m feeling so zingy. I wish I was born with these aspects! It’s like being permanently upbeat. For the first time in about 4 years the thought of calling friends and socialising actually makes me feel happy, although that could also be the benefit of having a little bit more money to spend.

Got REALLY into retinoids with Pluto opposing my 15 degrees Cancer Venus. Then the injections of plasma (my own). Both work magic (my adult acne intensified this spring and now it’s close to non-existent + both the retinoids and the plasma are collagen-building), but with the retinoids there are some side-effects that I’m trying to fight off this week. So it’s a dangerous, plutonian cure)) + I have a shopping list for the serums I’m going to start using once off the retinoids. That came after months of learning about how cosmetics work because nothing worked for me. My sun+venus… Read more »

Ah, beauty posts are my weakness! Libra SN with venus square jupiter! I read all manner of makeup/beauty regimen/style commentary online but am supremely low-key in real life about it as an Aries moon – Sag venus conjunct uranus – Aquarius sun. I’ve had a face routine forever though, but only at night since I literally give myself exactly 15 minutes from the second I get out of bed to be dressed, ready & out the door. Love the aztec clay mask once a week. My skin glows for days after and it stops pimples in their tracks. Otherwise I… Read more »

This libra sun launched an indy makeup brand last year and after stalling due to elder care issues, I’m finally selling some. I’m so broke due to the eldercare i had to file bankruptcy. I’m trying to get past the anger but I discovered that I think my husband subconsciously sabotages me yet resents that I don’t bring in more cash. His butthurt is so strong I’m tempted to sell my car to spite him.

Skin care + cosmetics are my everything!

I’ve been all about beauty products since I was a little Toro and have always found my beauty rituals so comforting. I know that I’m off my game when my nail polish is chipped and my eyebrows are overgrown 😉

And yes Mars in Virgo LOVES to exfoliate!! I live for a good scrub. Just whipped up a sugar scrub that has my skin glowing.

As of late, I am throwing out old clothes/makeup samples etc like crazy – I like looking at my empty closet, so satisfying!

This is such a great post! I love the bit about a skincare ritual as akin to the military reassurance of coming back to a perfectly-made bed. Hoooly shit is that ever me. If I have a few too many drinks or whatever and don’t do my bedtime ritual (and this is not just skincare but teeth, making a cup of tea to drink in bed, etc etc etc) then I feel Not Right At All for days after. It sets my teeth right on edge. I’m Capricorn Sun, obv. Something else that has just dawned on me (THANKS MYSTIC)… Read more »

Funnily enough (Or not – as a triple Taurus sun, Venus, Jupiter, I am very Venusian) self care has been much on my mind recently. I have moon in libra (yes more Venus), which makes me very attuned to aesthetics, particularly what I wear. Apparently Einstein had a ‘uniform’ that he used to wear so that he wouldn’t have to waste time choosing clothes. I get that, but my clothes are part of my expression, and if they are not exactly matched to my mood, I am uncomfortable all day. Also, Mars in cancer makes me a house witch, so… Read more »

#BoutFuqingTime LOL! Definitely the work of Venus on Sirius, IMO, sextile the papal Jupiter – Ebertin speculates re: Sirius that it’s possible for a “rise in station made possible by protection from people of influence”. Personally, I do tend to feel that when Venus is tied up with stars like Sirius, Aldebaran, Regulus, etc. that it can often be a marker of having “friends in high places”. Now Pluto in Capricorn is of course apparent in both the repeal of her ill repute and in the subsequent flushing of the defunct status quo, i.e. apostlehood only being reserved for The… Read more »

I do Retin A every night, squalene oil, hyper vitamin d and fish oil, kick boxing with weights, yoga at home, no chips,dry method hair cuts, one gallon of water per day, and anything else to keep it tight and right. I exfoliate my body with those prickly gloves and use glycerin soap. I believe self care is an investment – but if all else fails, I go to Retin A, hydration, and good cardio.

My 4th house room was the living room. The same day I knocked out that room, we picked up my husband’s Aquarian grandmother’s childhood bedroom set for my Aquarian daughter. My 4th house is ruled by Aqua and grandma & I got along famously.

A past roommate of mine said the way I washed dishes was ‘cathartic’, and another friend could sense when I was cleaning my closets for too long and gave me a call. So I get the intention thing, it works like a charm. Or a spell 😉

I believe it’s Ankhy DIY. Link up a part of your house with your natal chart. When I do it, I think about the energy of my house sign & planets while I clear out the old and make space for the new.

I’m aaaaalll about the beauty! Not so much cosmetics, though…it has to radiate from within – superficialities never cut it for Venus/Pluto. But on a physical level, with Venus in Cancer hit by Pluto I’m currently doing Revenge Abs, sans the actual revenge – achievement unlocked. Cancer IS the stomach, no? Venus beautifies it, while Pluto makes it a lasting (physical) transformation. Oh, and the standing squat press for the derrière – Venus = buttocks.

If I may? Try taking away all the product first to eliminate that as the potential source of the rash. Then – and this is going to sound freaky – stop using cleanser. That’s right, just wash you face with water ONLY. And no exfoliation. Try this for a couple of weeks and see if there is any improvement – if it’s summer where you are, you can totally pull off bare-faced now anyway. It’s possible that the hormonal changes from pregnancy have left your skin super sensitive – the cosmetics industry is always trying to sell us a solution… Read more »

I agree I have skin that looks ten years less than my age – I wash it with water and every now and again feed it with Eve Lom cold cream if it’s dry and about a once a month hit of Creme De La Mere. Never liked makeup cleanse toner etc just water and no soap works for me.

I am surprised i have never seen the oracle to counsel to purge your lingerie or underwear drawer. (it might exist as an answer but i have never gotten it.). Because oh baby! Like magic! I threw out weird ratty pieces i wouldn’t even see fit using on my cycle. But wow the lightness of being afterwards and sexy renewal!

Also re-feng shuiung and painting!

I did that 2 years back. Everything of mine, including “period panties” are in IMMACULATE condition. I don’t do ratty lingerie one iota.

I went to the mall today and man, has my Taurean kicked in. When I buy “cheap” it’s still great quality. But I cannot do cheap quality ish. I couldn’t, but these days I am revolted by mindless racks of sameness.

I am also amazed at the new underwear technology that exists for periods like Thinx! Now i can have decent underwear!

Cheap underwear is like eew. I have always regretted buying it. It almost always implodes by the 2nd or 3rd wear. My sagg asc too rough and tumble for it.

I recently went a bit more conservative on the hair colour, ashier and some low lights. Also had the urge to exfoliate this morning in the shower. I started making my scent using a blend of aromatherapy oils based on my favourite Tom Ford perfume, Sahara Noir. It has been discontinued, but I still have several bottles of just that scent. On its own, it doesn’t smell all that but on me, it is = just me. I abhor over the stench of chemical fumes, though, and women tend to be more guilty than men of thinking the world and… Read more »

You could always roll the rugs up and store them e.g in the garage or roof or friends house wherever until winter returns.

Lol garage? roof? friends with storage space? na uh. Central London is such a bore in that regard. Insanely expensive and zero storage space. Thanks tho. I checked and the new moon on the 4th is in Cancer so my home-y -ing instincts are bang on. I popped in here because I’m frustrated with trying to download bank statements from HSBCs online banking website I downloaded the latest acrobat reader which necessitated updating my adobe password (I always forget them) but still no joy. Gah! I’m wondering whether it isn’t the bank’s security system that’s stopping me downloading the statements…FFFFFFFFFFFFFrustration… Read more »

I am growing out my half-head ash blonde higlights. Shoulder length. This is YUGE for me, as I swore by my blonde wavy hair for aeons. Then came Feb, when 8 weeks touch up was due, and I JUST COULD NOT. I am sick of it. The highlights, the salon small talk, the $, the everything. Suddenly, the dark ash brown roots peeking through looked better against my skin tone. I booked an appointment, then moved it, then delayed it again, until I decided – f this, let’s move on over to the dark (hair) side. For real! Now I… Read more »

I know what you mean about feeling smug/happy about sidestepping salons. I was positively GLOATING when I was cutting my own hair. I did dye it black then too tho, but I loved it. I really envy your commitment to the two-year process of growing out the colour. I applaud you!
Will google De Lorenzo

Thanks Pi. I look really a bit trailer trash chic at the moment, but pushing through.

In Australia so hats are my go-to. I hear the first year is the ‘toughest’ — as soon as roots are beyond ears, there’s hope.

Such a 1st world problem 🙂 I love the shiny soft natural hair! Worth it.

I’m really feeling this Darkside!!

I’m also at six months without stepping into a salon – for as long as I can remember, I’ve been a slave to my hairdresser but have not been able to afford the $300 + for each visit. Plus, the small talk!! LOL so spot on!!

Thank you! I know! And the TIME. I worked out that over the next 30 years, I would have spent 16.25 days (DAYS!!) in the salon.

Oh wow, feb was the last time I got my hair coloured! It is definitely a journey to uncover what colour my natural hair is…but you’re right…it is so liberating! And yes, I agree – the natural hair colour looks so good against the skin.

Thank you to everyone above’s support and kind words! If anyone had told me a year ago I would stop highlighting, I would not have BELIEVED it. Neptunian Amazon, my sun is Pisces and moon Sagittarius. Rising sign Virgo. Yes they all square/oppose each other… mutable madness pummeling me at the moment with transiting Saturn closing in on my moon and Neptune, and transiting Neptune ramping up for my sun and Mercury while also squaring natal Neptune. Who said being mutable is dull?? 🙂 Natal Venus is in Aries. Zero patience for my shiny dark hair to emerge. If only… Read more »

I guess more involved lady-routines are predicated on having (1) an actual routine (2) regular disposable income (well for a cap moon who would happily blow $400 a month on a trainer, body work and facials without blinking hehe) (3) a lifestyle that makes it worthwhile and since my life is a bit like a pizza with different flavours on each slice, I have to kind of keep it simple I guess. No point having a lush manicure with midnight blue sparkles when.. oh hang on a minute
This could be the thing

Reading my mind again : )

Tonight’s schedule includes organic coconut oil on hair and then a bit mixed with some caster sugar for a vim filled scrub before an Epsom salt bath, am house sitting and this is my chance for a deep soak with a aspirin and honey mask on my face, it is Salic acid and moisturised for a song!

Considering a rad hair undercut cause I can!

I’ve recently discovered high dose vitamin B3, dermatologists now recommend it topically to stop keratoses other precancerous skin lesions progressing to malignancy. Take 2 X 500mg tablets, bung it in 100 ml water splash on twice a day wherever. Seems to help my xerotic skin retain much more moisture as well, in about 3 months I’ve noticed a marked improvement. Take another 500mg daily orally, it is the limiting factor in NAD (B3 is nicotinamide) production which is the latest focus of our neverending pursuit of the fountain of youth, but even better is also involved in a particular pathway… Read more »

B3 also makes me sleepy! Love i!
I have been using niacinamide topically to get rid of dark spots, commonly found on a complexion like mine that tends to hyperpigment.

Take some kelp ferment found in diy beauty stores and is an expensive ingredient in products like La Mer creams and mix in some b3 powder from 1 or 2 opened capsules. (Not that pricy as a diy ingredient.) apply to cleansed face for 20 min. It will not dry! It will give you a rosy glow!

Cotton glove and some serious, heavy duty moisturiser, to be slathered on at nights, in bed. Don’t skip the dirt-burying – so many benefits from getting soil under your nails, physical and mental! But make sure you have a heavy duty sunscreen too. And always wear gloves when washing dishes, etc. I forget this last one frequently, and my hands are going lizardy again 🙁

gosh wow that could be it. Is neptune doing funky things in your chart? Brings on the most mysterious psychosomatic illness symptoms. Uranus too actually, especially shingles since it involves nerves? Apparently DMSO cream/oil is very soothing for shingles-related pain. Best of luck <3 sounds like you're almost there & it's all part of the transformation. Venus/pluto would totally be a toxic mother-in-law situation too…

Damn girl. I’ve also struggled with immune probs. My two fave herbs (to drink as a very strong, well steeped tea) are astralagus and andrographis.

Also ginseng and ginger tend to make my thyroid fuck up, so I avoid them (despite every well-meaning naturopath trying to foist them on me).

I have actually been buying new clothes – not much, but a few items that are classic and classy with an “edge” (or pop, however you see it) that will def be worn come evening.

Clean up the underwear drawer, which you have already done. i started attending some shamanism classes to develop myself more while in the company of others.

Currently obsessing about feet. Specifically exfoliating those dead skill cells to oblivion.
In recent months have binned every “free sample” and unwanted scent gifted to me and stored for the beauty product apocalypse.
A good facial and massage are heaven.

I could never really see how my Libra moon activated until I realised that the aesthetics of my surroundings had a massive impact on my mental/emotional wellbeing…visually/auditory/olfactory harmony and pleasure are pre-requisites for optimal functioning (princess much? lol)… not sure how that plays out in beauty rituals, but I think the act of beautifying my surroundings and maintaining them (don’t go to bed with dishes still in the sink, wardrobe well and truly KonMarie-d for over a year now) counts as part of my “beauty regime”.

yes this! I’m a libra SN, pisces rising, 1st house moon so my surroundings are so important. Everything needs to be intuitively, aesthetically aligned in my home. Sag stellium too but in the 10th and includes saturn so I’m resistant to the standard sag hippie/boho chic. More into a vintage anthropologist vibe and kitschy but tasteful religious imagery….

Love pachouli though ! in moderation…

ooooh- love the sound of “vintage anthropologist vibe”! It’s like the grown up version of Sagittarius boho… (side note – I wonder what sign Indiana Jones is?).
My sag is 8th house…I’m not the “lovin & leavin” kind (too under the influence of my Toro asc) but I am prone to erm..”anthropological investigations” in the bedroom.. (ex-husband Yemeni Jew, ex boyfriends inc. Tibetan & Mapuche Indian, current lover Parsi…)
