Is the second planet from the Sun, and in mythology Venus was named for the Roman goddess of beauty and fertility. Venus has an orbital period of 244 days but because of its proximity to the Sun does not ever appear (from our perspective) to be more than two signs away from the sign that the Sun is in. Astrologically, Venus symbolizes our social urges and rules the signs of Taurus and Libra.

It represents the things that we enjoy and like, what makes us feel good, such as the things that we want to attract and have around us ; money, wealth, love. It represents the things that we own and those we value and want to own as a symbol of our own self worth. It is sensual and rules art, culture, sweet things, jewelry, beauty, harmony etc. Venus also rules relationships, equality and peace. Where Venus is in the chart shows what you want to attract to you and what you enjoy. Venus rules the Signs of Taurus and Libra.
