What your Venus says about the contents of your underwear drawer

 Lilith by Rossetti  
With the Sun and Venus in Taurus now, this Libra person is thinking about all things related to love, beauty, and desire. And what does Venus like more than pretty undergarments? So I’m going to have a little fun with this . . .

Because Venus travels close to the Sun, she is usually in the same sign or one of the two neighboring signs. She represents our sense of aesthetics, our idea of fun and pleasure and is all about our personal style. Of course, aspects from other planets will affect her expression but that’s for another post!

Venus in Aries is not a patient shopper. If she can find a brand that fits and is easy to come by, she’ll stick with it. This Venus is my candidate for having a fire-engine red bra stuck in the back of her drawer that really looked hot in the store but didn’t fit well after she got home. She also goes for active sportswear undergarments. Even those with Pisces and Taurus Suns will be more adventurous with Venus in the sign of the Ram.

Not surprisingly, Venus in Taurus loves silk lingerie – smooth, soft, and sensual. If you want to make your Taurus sweetie very happy, buy her silk to wear against her skin. She is more concerned with the tactile than the visual, although she’ll love muted, earth tones. Earthy Venus in Taurus helps Aries and Gemini Suns tune into their sensual side.

Venus in Gemini, an air sign, is more experimental and willing to at least try on the latest and greatest fad. She will shop just about anywhere and pick up items because they are fun and catch her eye. Gemini has no problem with bright colors and synthetic fabrics as long as it’s new and different. Taurus and Cancer Sun folks will be far more willing to try something new with this Venus in their charts.

Venus in Cancer prefers comfort to fashion. If the climate is on the cool side, this one will go for flannel nightwear. Cancer likes to stay with tried-and-true designs, nothing fancy. She is likely to be the most comfortable with the idea of appearing matronly. A Gemini or Leo Sun will liven up Venus in Cancer considerably.

Venus in Leo . . . think Madonna’s bustier outfits and visible bras in bright colors. This Venus likes her undergarments to be noticed and appreciated and will go for drama and flair to draw more attention to herself. Having Venus in Leo will give both Cancer and Virgo Suns more pizzazz.

Venus in Virgo is more likely to get excited about having undies made using bamboo fibers. Bamboo is eco-friendly, very soft, and naturally deters bacteria – all of which appeal to Virgo sensibilities. Virgo is less likely to be concerned about style and color than Libra, for instance, but it darn well better fit. Venus in Virgo tones down a Leo Sun and has Libra Sun paying more attention to natural fibers over synthetics

Venus in Libra is most likely to go for feminine frills with lots of lace on her sleepwear, but it has to be good quality and soft to the touch – Venus rules Libra, too. She certainly won’t turn down pretty silk lingerie or fine cotton lawn nightwear but will prefer softer colors – no fire engine red for this one. Venus is well placed in Libra, and she’ll give both Virgo and Scorpio Suns more feminine sensibilities.

Venus in Scorpio will pick up that daring garter belt to wear with thigh-high black stockings. She’ll also be inclined to wear silk undergarments under a ratty sweatshirt and jeans to titillate her lover’s imagination – or wear nothing at all. Ha! A Libra or Sagittarius Sun will qualify for HOT if her Venus is in Scorpio.

Venus in Sagittarius will opt for functional, if given a choice, because she just wants to put it on and head out the door. Keep the frills to a minimum please and forget the lace – it scratches. Pure organic cotton is on the top of this one’s list. Both Scorpio and Capricorn Sun folks will be willing to lighten up and fuss less for Venus in Sagittarius.

Ms. Venus in Capricorn not only prefers high quality silky lingerie, she also loves the idea of wearing sexy items under her conservative business suit. It’s a good idea to shop for high-end brands if you want to impress this choosy person, because she will look. If she is shopping for herself, Venus in Capricorn will wait for her favorites to go on sale, demonstrating Saturnine frugality. Sagittarius and Aquarius Suns both benefit from Venus in Capricorn’s sense of class and timeless styling.

For Venus in Aquarius, paying attention to what she wears depends on her mood and her lover. For the most part, undergarments are almost an afterthought, with comfort and good fit much higher on the scale than appearance. Like Virgo, she also will go for eco-conscious fibers like organic cotton and bamboo. This Venus will give Capricorn and Pisces Suns an eccentric edgier taste . . . electric blue lingerie anyone?

Venus in Pisces is the sweetheart of them all. Imagination is everything, and she prefers sheer fabrics in luminous colors that create an atmosphere of romance. Venus in Pisces is another who likes softness against her skin and the hidden beauty of lovely under-things that only she knows she’s wearing. This romantic Venus tones down and softens Aquarius and Aries Suns.

    Heh. Just finished browsing the Jockey catalog that came in the mail! Straight for the comfies. No seams to dig into sensitive skin, no riding up… Yes, Venus in Virgo likes natural fibers if possible, but mostly right fit, quality, and comfort. Not that they should be granny, though!! And you might think Venus conjoined Pluto would go for something scanky (or just expensive!), but, well… are we talking everyday wear or hot-date wear?? :-)

    Well, from the vantage point of the underwear drawer I’m definitely more Ascendant (Virgo) influenced than Venus in Gemini. Natural fibres rule. Cotton preferably but will definitely have to investigate the bamboo. Like Leslee I like stylish (but definitely NOT frilly) underwear. And it must be comfortable. A range of colours is good but only because of practicalities. I’m definitely a toned-down Venus in Gemini …

    Everyday wear because most all of us are willing to move out of our comfort zone for a special occasion. :-D

    That’s where i see your Venus/Pluto coming into play. Virgo is just full of surprises when she feels comfortable.

    Your Venus is conjunct Mercury, ruler of your Ascendant, pulling in the Virgo element, so it follows you prefer more subtlety.

    Bamboo is a truly amazing fiber. It has a silky feel to it and my SO who has eczema on his hands and feet is ecstatic over the effect of socks & gloves made from bamboo . He say it feels cool and reduces irritation a lot and seems to make sweat evaporate quickly.

    Honestly I’ve been having second thoughts about the whole Scorpio/sexy thing because the longer I consider all the Scorpio I have, the more I feel Scorpio is less about hot sex and more about a deep understanding of the nature of sexuality. If that makes sense.

    Venus is not happy in Scorpio, too intense and secretive. She loves Libra’s lighter touch and willingness to indulge the senses without drowning in emotions. I see Venus in Scorpio as a driving creative force, using Scorpio’s ability to plumb the depths for power to fuel the creative engine as it were.

    I think this is all right on, but I may be a bit of anomaly because I have a total fancy lingerie OBSESSION. I spent more on lingerie than shoes last year. All frilly, feminine, high quality, and totally heavenly. Venus in Virgo…but I feel like the square to Neptune and my sun in Libra must totally overrule it?

    “..the longer I consider all the Scorpio I have, the more I feel Scorpio is less about hot sex and more about a deep understanding of the nature of sexuality. If that makes sense.”

    Absolutely. Tantric would be a good description. Not the tantric sex that has been popularized of late but the loss of ego, the great surrender become whole.

    “Venus is not happy in Scorpio, too intense and secretive. She loves Libra’s lighter touch and willingness to indulge the senses without drowning in emotions.”

    My first impulse is to agree but perhaps we are missing a huge part of Venus and aspects of the feminine. Myth suggests that Venus is happy with all the gods. Venus has two faces; morning and evening star, as well as the special power of the (figure 8 /infinity symbol) retrograde cycle. I think we barely touch the essence of Venus.

    “I see Venus in Scorpio as a driving creative force, using Scorpio’s ability to plumb the depths for power to fuel the creative engine as it were.”

    Agree. And perhaps the healer unafraid to use the Scorpio to merge with another. One of the soul’s paths few venture down, who but Venus could do this with love and not harm?

    I believe you are on to something here and there is a memory I can almost touch. Remind either Pat or I about this subject because I know there are wonders to be explored here.

    BTW, I was born when Venus was Evening Star . . .

    Thanks for your delightful addition to this discussion!! I’m sitting here chuckling over you & Mandy having flipped Sun/Venus [Pisces/Aquarius].

    There is a strong element of playful imagination at work here in that combo. I see Pisces as having a willingness to suspend reality and move into fantasy with verve! And when Mandy mentioned Second Life and her choices there . . . there you go!!

    Sure. Venus plays very large in nordic myth as Hel/Freja/Frid.
    The masculine archetypal players change on the cardinal cross- only the feminine stays throughout. I would love to brainstorm on that!

    My prediction was almost right, there’s the word black. Thankfully there isn”t the word leather, wouldn’t like that anyway.

    I’ve been following your dialogue with Tseka, it’s interesting. Personally I quite like having Venus in Scorpio, I’m perfectly happy being secretive and intense, but then I never knew it any other way, did I?

    I totally agree, Tseka. Pisces also merges, and Venus is exalted in Pisces. I’ll be dealing with this subject on PiChron in the future. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to post this weekend, now that a bunch of other tiresome obligations are out of the way.

    As for my own underwear drawer: It’s mostly from Victoria’s Secret … and all cotton! Although VS is known for its leggy, impossibly thin supermodels who aren’t really all that sexy in my opinion (not enough curves, and the few they’ve got are surgically implanted), it has a line of comfortable and practical lingerie. VS started the trend of pretty cotton undies many years ago, and the quality is good. And they go on sale twice a year. Neith, you have Venus in Cap pegged!

    For sleepwear, I have an old plaid flannel nightgown that you’d never recognize as VS (but it’s written in big letters inside!), as well as a washed silk lace-up nightshirt in a watercolor print of red and gold. But, like Tseka, my preference is nothing at all. :-)

    This fits very well with my theory we learn to be comfortable with our charts through familiarity. :-D

    tseka’s Venus in Scorpio falls on the cusp of the 9th thus her interest and willingness to explore the myths and legends surrounding Venus to all our benefit.

    Having purchased underwear for Virgo/Venus in Scorpio and having hrmm, seen the underwear (or lack thereof) of Sag/Venus in Scorpio, I’d say no rethinking about the underwear is required.

    I really rather quite like Venus in Scorpio.
