Venus loves to embody the qualities of the sign she is in. Venus is an elemental energy that exists in both women and men and we need to activate her in our lives to feel complete. In this article, I will talk about how Venus expresses in its pure state depending on the sign she’s in. In many cases, this energy may be inhibited, especially if there are aspects to Saturn or Chiron. Even and especially in these cases, we have to make an effort so that our inner Aphrodite meets her needs since it is the only way to feel good about ourselves. Astrology can help us understand the reason for our internal conflicts and provide us with tools to harmonize them.
