Still not understanding the role of Venus
Among all other determinants of relationship (Descendant, 7th´s ruler, darakaraka, upapada lagna etc) Venus is said to be possibly the most basic factor. Yet, I still do not really know how to approach my Venus placement, what (who) it suggest, and how it defines what is ´good´ to me. It is in Cancer, and the most key aspects it has is Cancer Sun conjunct, Aries Jupiter Square, Sagittarius Saturn biquintile, Cancer Part of Fortune Conjunct and Gemini Ascendant semisquare.

Any help/additional interpretations, please?

Venus is about things of matters of the heart, likings & attractiveness.
Here venus gets the characteristics & nature of Cancer.
It´s not about someone else.
It´s about you & the character/color it gives there to your personality.

Yours is described here on astro as follows.

Venus - Sensuality, love, harmony, pleasure
Venus symbolises attractivity. Sign in which Venus is tells us what we are attracted to and this enables us to give or receive love and affection, beauty and happiness, values and principles. The negative side is that it represents weakness and shallowness.

Venus in Cancer
The manifestations of love of people with Venus in Cancer are connected with the need to give and receive satisfaction and security. If these people were not sure of their mother´s love, they cling to their partners. If they were sure enough of their mother´s love, they are able to show balanced love for their family. These people subconsciously think too much about accepting love that they forget about the quality and the amount of love that they give.

Venus in the 3rd House
Venus in the third house suggests great early education. It means intellectual interests in the field of art and culture. It may mean artistic talent, or at least an opportunity for creating art. They have creative nature and they probably have a writing or musical talent. They do not like conflicts so they get along well with their relatives and friends. They do not put pressure on other people and they know how to convince others and reach an agreement or compromise. They are socially active people.

Hope that sheds some light to an approach you might´ve been looking for.

I´m an Venus cancer too but in the 9th house. Cheers :37:

Venus in 9th too but in Pisces. My Venus is almost unaspected. Except for Saturn.

I´m Cancer rising.

I like nature very much. I like animals. But I also like technology it´s just not satisfying for my well being. I need to connect it with art. I seeem to be attracted to colours and I like exotic birds because of their intelligence. But it is not only animals, I like culture too. As long as there is variation. Somehow I would not be satisfied in other places like Europe yet the wildlife in the subtropical and tropical seems very exciting.

As for partners it seems to go along the same lines.

hi Blastardo
Venus in Cancer generally wants to give and receive love and nurture, and also to create safety and security.

Given that your Venus is conjunct your Sun and Part of Fortune this sounds like a life purpose and your Venus may want to extend beyond family.

The chart displayed uses Placidus and puts theses planets in the third house but if you try using Whole Signs, which is the traditional Hellenistic system of house division, you will find Venus and Sun placed in the second. Venus is the benefic of your night chart and placed in the second brings the blessings of abundance. It suggests that making money and looking after what you have will be important to you. You can only give from a place of abundance, emotionally and materially. The square to Jupiter may actually be quite positive as it suggests you will be challenged to give and receive both love and understanding beyond your immediate circle.

Nice ;)
Yes the 9th house is the house of exploration, worldly knowledge/matters/natures & world cultures.

Amazing that it relates & vibes with you so well ^^
With having an love for exotic birds, variations, and love for exploring exotic places.
That it also applies in same lines for partners is interesting too.

I don´t feel that way on partners, with my venus cancer 9th tho.
The cancer nature is strong with my sun & venus that makes my personality. But the house of 9th, I don´t think that much partner wise, because of other aspects I think.
9th of exploration, is also on the vibe of my south node sagittarius, wanting to travel & explore wild side.
But south node is the karmic traits I have to let go off & brings misfortune in my life, neglecting my duties or rushing things so I can be "free" of them for example.
But the goal is to embrace my gemini city life, & cooperation with others as my life path, rather going off on my own in nature wild & free lol ;D
I feel my eros passions in sagittarius, also call on it to be free.

But partner wise I feel juno leo in my 10th, the asteroid indicating marriage partner, to be the stronger influence for me ;)
Juno leo 10th, makes me like competent, career driven, strong, and ego spotlight hungry partners. Thus I like models & women who assert themselves with power & expressions that make an statement.
I like badass women with an attitude, makes me smile & nod instantly ;)
Tho my cancer side craves to nurture a woman in a soft romance sense, my leo side craves someone to be equally strong, achievement driven & to be proud of, or show-off some descriptions say lol.
My vesta in leo give me power of expression too in my artistic expressions, and mercury leo in my mindset/speech.

But passion wise I´m all scorpio intensitiy with my mars in 1st house +asc. And saturn scorpio in 12.
Those cancer & scorpio signs shows what I want in intimate relations, even tho my leo signs shows what I want in public settings & admirations.

With those water signs, leo/sagittarius fire signs, and moon jupiter in capricorn in earth.
All these combined gives me the resulting tastes & preferences of styles ;)

And surprisingly, I´ve found myself compatible with every woman lol
No matter what they´re chart is, every element water, fire, air, earth signs.
It all conjuncts, trines or sextiles in one way or the other with mine.

And I found my lilith in Pisces 4th house, to describe
"unconditional love" ;D
The most loving & self sacrificing lilith of all 12 lol
I´m still not clear what all this is really telling me,
or showing who I´m born to be.

But it´s really interesting for example
that every woman born between march 1986 & march 1996
Has their pluto in scorpio, conjunct/trine or sextile my water sun,venus, mars & earth moon jupiter planets if their degrees are close enough.
And all pluto connections are said to be intense subconscious attraction & obsessions lol
And not even taking my taboo lilith in Pisces water into account for universal unconditional love that goes with it.

lol if I knew that before, I would´ve gone dating a lot more hahah
But nevertheless I´m into having lots of fun.
And my saggitarius is strong in my chart, that I don´t want to be tied down or stuck.

With learning of transits aspects.
That my uranus transit in my 7th house, showing only short term partners going in & out of my life for the coming 7years.
It seems my fate is sealed lol
after these 7years, in 2028 it goes into the notorious 8th house lol
Imagine that... uranus transit in 8th house, 7years till 2035 ;)

So I´m not getting married any time soon for the next 14years lmao :61:
My venus cancer can just look at it with his hands up, :75:
saying "it´s out of my hands y´all" :41:

That´s how much influence venus does for me.
To me it only shows my love/romantic good hearted nature in my personality & that´s all.
So many other things have more influence ;D

Longer story than I wanted to write,
but hope you find it entertaining & enjoyed
Cheers :37:

Looking at the heliocentric roster I see ` :159:´ is involved which is like having the shoe from the Monopoly Game invading your Chess game! :22:

Thank You everyone. This certainly helps.

As for the Whole Sign system, I am quite ambivalent about it, because while Mercury and Venus in 2nd house are believable and rather empirically logical in my case, the placement of Sun in 2nd house is problematic since I most definitely am not focused on moneymaking throughout my life. I do like comfort and security and am advancing my professional career, but in fact I have few material desires at this point, and can readily sell or give up the majority of things I acquired, with the exception of my books (the majority of them at least). There are many reasons for this, but at any rate, the 2nd house placement of Sun in the WS system is a bit dubious to me.

I´m afraid in my view only 3 of the mentioned aspects are relevant. The rest are out of orb, and therefore don´t describe anything.
:154: bQ :157:, :196: Ascendant and most importantly :191: True :163:

That´s funny it works so well for me. For some reason the connection between my Venus in 9th and my thing for birds evaded me. Lol I do love birds above all other animals.

Nice ^_*
Yeah I didn´t think I´ve mentioned that.
I love birds too, and had quite a few lovebirds agapornis & parakeets-budgerigar.
I currently have only one white turtle dove now, that´s with me for the last 21years ;)
I had 2 dogs in my life.
But I didn´t think it would be related to house 9 tho.

And I like the symbolism of the eagle ;D
The higher octave of Scorpio.

Venus is about what your passionate about. What you love doing. Why you do what you do.

Since it is in Cancer you may love cooking, motherhood/fatherhood, family connections since it´s ruled by the Moon. "Children).

This is nurturing, pampering, empathizing, soothing in some regards in all relationships.

May deal with your work, hobbies, interests.

Example: working witch families, children, mothers.

Medical/Mental Health care for these populations.

Preschools. Working with young children.

Different careers can come in that deal with family themes.

What you love doing all the time should point to how Venus plays out with what you eat, what you wear, where you live, what your activity may be.

Hmm what do you think relates to your strong connection to nature? You relate nature to culture?..

Maybe it´s my idea that perhaps humanity could be better through full recognition of its primordial, dark origins and acknowledgement - and incorporation - of hidden instincts into civilizational and psychological progress. That being said, I do not buy new age-y talk of ´returning to nature´ and people idealizing plants and animals. It´s just way too idealistic and poorely thought out... Maybe I just want a less stressful, more honest and less ´artificial´ (in multiple meanings of this term) alternative humanity I could function within and not have this constant tension I experience.
