The planet of love, beauty, the arts and creativity. It is the gentle energy of Venus that contrasts with the commanding energy of Mars. These two planets often find themselves being compared to one another, whether they intend to be or not. (Don’t forget that old saying, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”!)
If Venus is the dominant planet in your birth chart, you are what is known as a Venusian. Those with a lot of Libra or Taurus in them are quite often Venusians. Venus is the ruler of these two signs.
This is especially prominent for the Sun and Rising signs. Libra Suns and Libra Risings are known for their magnetic charm and pleasing appearances. Next time you come across a Libra Rising, note how easily you are charmed by this person!
But Venusian energy can be harnessed by anybody, no matter your birth chart. Everybody has got a little bit of Venus in them and everyone can tap into the energy of this charming and benevolent planet. Finding out what your Venus sign is can be especially helpful.

Venus in Aries
This is the warrior of the Venus signs. Venus in Aries is passionate, full of vibrancy and knows what they want. Aries is ruled by Mars, so Venus in Aries has a more go-getting attitude than other Venus signs.
