It is as essential to know your Venus sign as it is the Sun Sign. The Sun reflects your core identity, the self that you are striving to actualize. Your so-called Sun Sign is merely the constellation of the Zodiac that the Sun was traveling through when you were born. But there was a lot more going on at the time of your birth.
Venus by sign, house, and aspect shows the style, aesthetic and romantic sensibility of a person. As Venus never strays too far from the Sun, many people have the same Venus sign as their Sun. That’s easy! There is no contradiction between, say, a Gemini Sun and Venus. Their fashion sense and relating mode are congruent with their Gemini nature. And if you add Mercury into the picture, another planet which is always near the Sun, that could also be in Gemini.
Again, no conflict, no jagged edges. They dress like a Gemini (unless their Ascendant is at odds with Gemini), sound like a Gemini, love like a Gemini and well, you get the picture. But if our Gemini example has Venus in Taurus, they can transmit a signal that won’t be picked up by the relationship frequency they’re on. Or confuse the hell out of people with an “I’m bored, I want to go out” swiftly followed up by strong nesting urges. One minute they want to buy a new couch with you – the next they’ve blocked you because they felt crowded.
Every Venus sign is affiliated to metals, stones, herbs, flowers, and scents. In old magic, these strengthen your Venusian Vibe. Working with these is practical Venusian magic. When your Venus Vibe is right, regardless of your gender, you feel sensual and at ease with your physical realm. A well-adjusted Venus enjoys their body but is not obsessive. Venus is love but even more so pleasure, food, music, art, and culture.
If your Venus sign is the costume, the House is the stage or the setting. And the aspects that Venus makes with the Sun, Moon, Ascendant and other planets or points are the relationships your Venus is in. Some are cordial and flowing – the trines – and others are discordant, but they provoke growth. Venus conjunct anything lends your Venusian nature some of the energy of that planet. For example, a Venus could be in sunny Sagittarius, as above but if it is conjunct Pluto, that person is far more intense and perhaps obsessive than the classic Saggo Venus.
There are multiple permutations and of course, many other planets to take into account. But, know your Venus sign for extra insights to your love style and fashion sense.
Know someone else’s for freakishly helpful ‘insider info’ on what they find alluring. It is particularly helpful if you’re Taurus or Libra rising, as Venus rules both these ascendants. It’s not ‘ruled’ as in she reigns over you, more that the Love Goddess is your most important influence.

Venus in Sagittarius Talismans
Talismans are not mere trinkets. They’re objects, colors, decor, jewelry, and scents that are connected to – in this case – your Venus sign. Supportive and lucky, they raise your Venusian vibe, improving romantic rapport or good mating prospects—bonus: Enhanced creative and aesthetic judgment.
Turquoise is the ultimate gemstone for your Venus: Ancient cultures credited it with an amazing array of powers – it was said to help with everything from supernaturally accurate aim and protection against envy to gambling and shamanic escapades. AKA a day in the life of a Saggo Venus?! More profoundly, it is the Sagittarian stone, and it speaks to wide-open blue skies.
If you were going to use it in jewelry, decor, or a keyring, consider working some Tin into the item. It’s not a precious metal, but it is auspicious (think of how “tinny” is a folk word for “lucky”) and was once revered for its purifying powers.
Venus-enhancing colors include sea-green, cornflower blue, and any hue that – like turquoise – evokes open sunny skies. If it’s light-reflective, it’s you. You’re a Fire element Venus and thus orange or flame-red can be brilliant, but they can also be too much – you’re already vitalized and charismatic. Still, bump up the red if you’re recovering from a soul-sapping love affair or want to crack a particularly tough ‘case.’
Restless and kinetic, you probably don’t want to strut around in a fug of scent, magical or not. But if you are seeking to add a Venusian frag, go straight for spice. Ginseng and Cinnamon, for example.
Other symbols that are sensational for you: A lightning bolt, arrow, or spiral. The latter is in honor of the Saggo constellation, home to the most mysterious spiral nebulae in the known galaxy. As this is your natal Venus sign, you can see why you like a sense of infinity within love realms, right?
