Venus is the most beneficial planet after Jupiter, and the house where it is placed is usually blessed and prosperous, offering to the native the best traits that it can give. When Venus is located in the 1st house, the house of the self, its effects can be noticed not only in the native’s life but also on his body and general appearance. Having the planet of beauty, Venus in the 1st house is an indicator of an attractive and charming person. If the planet does not receive a lot of challenging aspects, the native is kind-hearted and diplomatic, a tender soul that easily attracts other individuals.
This position can slightly increase your optimism, luck and color your social relationships. On the other hand (and especially if you make aspects with Jupiter, Moon or Neptune), it can indicate an excessive search for pleasure, where you should always analyze if you are not going to park in your comfort zone. Care must be taken with overindulgence to eventually avoid the feeling of “still life”.
On the other hand, embarking on a balanced quest for comfort and well-being can bring success, particularly when Venus has good aspects to Saturn or Pluto, which can bring more vitality, dynamism, health, and increased physical stamina.
Having Venus in the 1st House also represents a tendency to take better care of your physical appearance, and you are also more likely to be an attractive person with good artistic taste. It is in this sector where we find the best expressions of our personal and projected image. It is also a good indicator of luck at birth and in the first phase of life, which may have been more pleasant, especially if Venus is not under stress.
There is a tendency to worry a little more about fine and refined things, as the ego and the needs to feed it are strongly linked to this house. The first impression that the native makes is usually a good one. It is also possible that he does not like the exercise very much if other factors in the letter do not help. Good looks and a softer personal approach from other people tend to be important to you.
The 1st House is also linked to the initiative and the first attitudes of the person in relation to their desires, so the natives with this position must often pursue their goals in the affective field. In addition, the 1st house also tells us a lot about our first effect on others, and if it works harmoniously; the person tends to win over others with her temperament. Venus in this sector can facilitate new situations and the approach to new people.
Venus represents the way we feel and express our feelings, our passions, our affectivity.
In this House, Venus indicates that the affective plane is preponderant in the life and behavior of the person (regardless of the aspects), and that they will therefore be very dependent on it in their daily life.
She will therefore have an important need for affectivity in her contacts, in her everyday life, her hobbies, etc… knowing that there will often be a search for harmony, and a sentimental link with any external element, the need in fact to be “on the same wavelength” with the people around you. The person therefore aspires to happiness, pleasures, healthy emotions, seduction too. Venus will therefore be all the more dominant the closer it is to the tip of the Ascendant.
The sign will give us the backdrop and the way the person feels and expresses the affective.
The harmonious aspects will be as many assets so that the emotions and the feelings are lived in a harmonious way, and thus so that the person also expresses his love in the same way. The dissonant aspects will indicate as many obstacles, blockages, brakes, possible instability in this expression and this experience.
As for the other planets, two cases can arise:
- Venus in House 1 is in the same sign as the Ascendant, in which case there will be harmony between the expression of feelings and the behavior and the way of reacting naturally, and therefore the image of oneself which is given to others.
- Venus in House 1 is in a different sign from the Ascendant, in this case, there may (depending on the signs) be a gap between the two and the difficulty of creating a balance between the emotional and what the planet represents in appearance. Let’s imagine a Sagittarius Ascendant rather naturally open, enthusiastic, demonstrative, and a Venus in Capricorn much more suspicious and reserved, we will probably have a very open person relationally, friends not indulging in his personal life, and therefore more suspicious about a commitment affective, hence the perception of a contradiction by others in the image that is given.
