You deserve a sense of self-worth and a comfortable relationship with Love and Money. Whether or not you're making this happen, is indicated by Venus in your birth horoscope. Like all the other planets, your Venus is in one of twelve signs. Since the orbit of Venus is close to the Sun, it may be in the same sign as the one you were born under (your Sun sign) or one of the signs right next to it.

Since the signs right next to one another are usually very different, this may cause some conflict or smokescreen intent. For instance, an Aries Sun by nature is direct and wants to do things his/her way. However, if Venus is in Pisces, there may be a tendency to bend to the partner and project a softer nature. This may frustrate the Aries because instead of staying on task, s/he slips into less demanding requests. On the other hand, it can be a very attractive combination, which may make the Aries less strident and help achieve his/her goals.

The twelve signs are divided into four elements: earth, air, fire and water. Venus is linked to love and money because it symbolizes what you value. In earth signs, (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo) Venus is practical. These people like to demonstrate love in concrete ways. They give tangible presents, and they usually remember to do so. They are savers and it is important to them to create security.

The air sign Venus (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius) shows love through mental activity. They call, send messages and want to play verbal ping-pong with their loved ones. They will make financial decisions based on conversations, information and logic.

Fire sign Venuses (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are apt to act impulsively in love. They are dynamic and once their interest is ignited, it's hard for them to believe it may not be reciprocated. In financial matters they might also move quickly, which may be terrific or disastrous, depending on the outcome.

The water Venus (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) loves with a depth of feeling which may not be easily articulated. They connect with the other in a profound empathy which can be a harbor or too insular, depending on other factors. Of all the elements, water is best with money. Water signs resonate with the way money needs to be circulated to grow.

If other planets make geometric connections to Venus, it will change the interpretation. Saturn can indicate there were limits on love and money in childhood, which may make a person feel that's the way it is. Uranus may show a need for excitement and the unusual, which would certainly alter the way an earth moon looks for love.

Venus connections are also very important when comparing horoscopes. You can see if you will make beautiful "music" with another, because when your Venus is supported, life is harmonious. Knowing where your Venus snares occur can aid in your sidestepping them in love and money. With this knowledge, you can effectively attract what you want.
