Astrologers will look at Venus transit the houses for matters concerning your love life and relationships with others. Venus is also the planet of money so it can indicate in what area of your life you will receive gifts of cash as well as affection. Venus is a planet that wants to harmonise and is focused on co-operating with others. It wants to reach out to others and socialise and avoid conflict. Venus spends three to four weeks in a sign and takes 225 days to orbit the Sun. Venus goes retrograde every 18 months where it will spend much longer in a sign and its transit meaning will differ.
Venus is in Leo until October 9th. From July 23rd to September 4th Venus will be Retrograde. Read my Venus Retrograde post for its meaning for your sign which will differ from the meaning below between those dates. Read the interpretation that contains your rising sign symbol below.
Venus Transit 1st House
If you want to attract love into your life, then this is the period to do so! You are wearing Venus like a silky second skin. At the same time, the planet is oozing charm out of every pore of your body. Venusian energy attracts everyone to you without you having to do anything. Due to its desire to avoid conflict, the peaceful vibration will also accommodate your partner’s wishes.
Venus is blossoming in your sign this is the time to go for your dream lover. You could end up a pushover, so try not to get too gushy! As a couple, you might end up playing cupid for other people. As a host, you can bring people together for enjoyable social events. You also have the gift of mending broken relationships.
Venus Transit 2nd House
You are more likely to fall in love with a funky new pair of shoes than a human being during this time. Venus rules money as well as romance, so her covetous, material tendency can come out very strongly. On the positive side, at least you will attract more cash into your life too. Keep your eyes out for ways to monetise your business rather than just being seduced by shop windows.
The temptation will be to indulge in luxury goods rather than in wise investments, so try to have a little self-control. You will likely need your partner to take you to fancy dinners and shower you with gifts to show their love for you. Perhaps this reflects your insecurities. Better to show your vulnerability, rather than your partner breaking the bank. They don’t need to prove their love! A genuine hug and kind words will feel unexpectedly precious if you drop the diva act.
Venus Transit 3rd House
Your neighbourhood is looking unusually lush and beautiful. You might also be more open to finding love locally as a result. While strolling around your homestead, you become more aware of its positive aspects. Even some graffiti could look quite artistic! Neighbours and shopkeepers seem more friendly and cheerful than usual. Indeed if love is on your mind you might bump into someone on your doorstep. Make sure your slippers are presentable!
Your mind will want to return to some beautiful quaint olde worlde village… which might be quite hard if you live in a grey concrete jungle. But hey sometimes in the right sunlight, your neighbourhood could look like modern, urban… sculpture? Hmmm, anyway. If your immediate environs look too stark, maybe get together with other locals to help regenerate it. You could spruce things up with a mural or some potted plants. Again if you are single, this could be the perfect opportunity to find love while working in those communal areas.
Venus transit 4th House
Venus in your home sector means that you are less likely to want to go out and socialise. So the chances of singles meeting anyone new are low, (unless you like postmen!) On the other hand, couples will probably feel so loved up that they don’t want to leave their boudoir. Enjoy this time to cook, chill in the garden or even try some light decorating.
If you are single then try making your home comfortable for two. As Kevin Costner once said, “Build it and they will come!”. Make your nest as inviting as possible and for heaven’s sake, tidy up if the single life has turned you into a class-A slob. Another possibility with Venus in this sector is meeting someone while visiting your parents. A romance with an old flame from your hometown is possible.
Venus Transit 5th House
This should be the most romantic period of the year for you. Venus becomes pure joy itself in this pleasure zone of your chart. You have the universe’s full permission to devote yourself to love, romance and 5-star indulgence. The current energies are far more conducive to play than work, so this is an ideal time to take a holiday. Don’t waste this time stuck behind a desk while you are brimming with such Venusian attraction.
In terms of dating, this is probably the best time of year. But if you are already attached get in touch with your creative side and spend time immersed in the arts. Outings to museums, theatres and concerts for singles could connect you to someone else with whom you can share the finer things in life. Most of all, you are appealing to others because you are happy and confident with just being yourself. Make the most of this fantastic period.
Venus Transit 6th House
Unfortunately, this is probably the most boring period for affairs of the heart. Fortunately, it only happens once a year! This transit is good for health so make yourself beautiful from the inside out since. You will easily stick to a detox diet and it is also an excellent time to commit to keeping fit. You might even meet a future partner while lifting weights so join a gym!
You can use this organising vibration to develop a good health routine. Once the timetable is set it’s much easier to keep up a lifestyle that makes you more attractive to others. In the meantime, pamper and preen yourself because Venus will enter your marriage house soon. Hurrah! This is a time of deferred gratitude, so get any boring, self-maintenance tasks out of the way like going to the dentist. You can enjoy guilt-free leisure time later on when your social life picks up again.
Venus Transit 7th House
This is the most auspicious time of the year to get married! The balancing act of Venus auto-tunes you to match and compliment everyone you meet, so you cannot help but attract admirers. Best of all, you will get on fabulously with your partner. Of course, not everyone will get married, but this is the textbook placement of commitment and harmony between couples. If you are seeking more durability from a casual affair then this is the time to push for it to go the long haul.
It is a suitable time to push for commitment in a long-term relationship. If your flaky partner can’t make it more official now, when will they ever? So I would test the water and have that “…so… where is this leading?” talk. It’s also an excellent opportunity to patch things up if you’ve recently split with someone. The best thing about this time is your ability to see things from your partner’s point of view. We become more attractive to others when we mirror back their best reflection.
venus Transit 8th House
Love can turn into quite an obsession during this time. You’re attracted to the unsuitable partner who irresistibly pushes all your buttons. Likely, you will unconsciously attract someone to help you purge your repressed demons. We are in classic “Dark Cupid” territory, so don’t be surprised if one of these fallen angels swoops into your life. It might be a passing fling that only lasts a few weeks, but it will rock you to the core.
So do be careful who you let under your skin while Venus is in this taboo zone. If you sexually bond with this person, you might be obsessed with them for months afterwards. Think twice if you want to put yourself through those intense, gut-wrenching emotions before you enter the 8th house underworld! It could be quite a struggle to get back into the sunlight again. Conversely, this may be what you need to detoxify yourself of resistant toxins. Sometimes the body needs to be shocked into a healing crisis if required.
Venus Transit 9th House
Be prepared to be transported to far-off lands because of a love encounter. Holiday romances are possible, or you may merely be attracted to local foreigners. The ‘far off lands’ effect could expand your mind. A date could open you up to unfamiliar art, theatre or music. You will gain a fresh perspective that is exciting, stimulating, and culturally enriching.
You will find yourself going beyond your comfort zone thanks to the pioneering energy of your partner, which is beneficial for personal growth. Romance and travel come together beautifully. So whether you are single or in a couple, make sure you take time to explore sacred sites or places of natural beauty. As a result, your love life will rekindle with a new passion. You could also meet a potential mate in a classroom setting, so starting a course of study is recommended. A classroom flirtation will feed both your heart and mind during this blossoming Venus transit.
Venus Transit 10th House
Your heart beats faster to the tune of an older, wealthier, and more successful partner. That you are suddenly impressed by high ranking people does not necessarily mean that you are a mercenary gold digger! Instead, you are subconsciously searching for the guide and/or parental figure lacking in your life. Therefore you will be able to advance and attain maturity by connecting with this wiser elder. It is also possible that an uncommitted relationship will become stable at this time. Your status in the world changes as people now regard you as a couple. If you are single, your social media status could go to ‘In a relationship’ also.
Venus in such a business-focused zone may not be the ‘hottest’ love placement, but this is an excellent opportunity to discover that you can attract trustworthy and responsible partners. Ok, they might be a little battered around the edges and even thinning on top, but the heart underneath is pure gold. Moreover, they won’t drain you, will commit to you, and will be your rock. It may be a change for those who prefer Toyboys or Barbie dolls, but it will help you move away from impossible fantasy. The transit will help you consider more realistic and attainable partner options in the future.
venus Transit 11th House
A friend could become your lover when Venus graces this sector of your chart! Social interactions with your favourite buddies could also bring a long-term partner into your life. Potential lovers at this time will feel more like a friendship than a sexual connection. For you, it matters more to have a great rapport with your mate. You will be able to get along with a wide variety of people. There should be no conflicts as you are feeling so relaxed. Your contentment radiates out to others who then feel the same.
The ego is also essentially in deep sleep mode at this time, so any potentially flammable communications with friends or partners pass without any upset. Introduce your new love to your friends since this is a great time to mix the two. The atmosphere should be easy, warm and affectionate. Bringing lovers and friends together in a group setting is exceeding well starred, and any parties you attend should be more fun than usual. The possibility of making a romantic connection at social events is likely, so get out there in your Saturday best.
Venus Transit 12th House
For the next few weeks, you’ll need to put your own needs aside to take care of your partner. They may become ill, are grieving or have suffered some misfortune at work. So go put on your nurse’s hat while you bandage their wounded self-esteem or make chicken soup for their flu. Venus in this sector means self-sacrifice, which is fine when there is a valid reason, but once the crisis is over the martyrdom must stop.
The negative manifestation of Venus in your zone of self-undoing would also be becoming a doormat. You could easily self-sacrifice for someone you are crazy about, hoping you will win them over. Of course, you will not and they will lose all respect for you as they continue to wipe their boots on your back. Be careful with new romances now because this is not a great starting position. If there are any red flag warnings of addiction, take notice and do not brush them aside. The best way to play it would be to remain unattainably holy until Venus moves into the next sign!
