Synastry Overlays: Venus in 10th, 11th, 12th Houses

By Corrine Lane     3 Comments

These are synastry overlay interpretations for Venus in the partner’s 10th, 11th and 12th houses. (See instead: Venus overlays in 1st–3rd houses, or in 4th–6th houses, or in 7th–9th houses.)

Venus in 10th House Synastry Overlay

If your Venus is in your partner’s tenth house of a synastry overlay, you find it easy to put work before play in this relationship.

You (Venus person) see the house person as someone that can help you attain your goals and improve your status. The house person sees you as having creative talent, vision, and understanding in areas which they lack. There is a give and take here, and you work well together. Your skills or areas of expertise complement each other. You respect each other’s strengths and skills.

Your partnership could be productive and profitable for both of you, but this may be the only incentive to pursue a relationship. This overlay doesn’t add much of an emotional or romantic aspect, unless you consider business plans to be romantic. You’ll both desire to “be on top,” but that means something completely unrelated to sex, in this relationship.

Venus in 11th House Synastry Overlay

If your Venus is in your partner’s 11th house of a synastry overlay, you immediately like and accept your partner upon meeting them.

Right away, you are interested in sharing their interests. You want to know what their hopes and wishes for the future are. Your partner is flattered by your warm attention, but they’re not overwhelmed. They don’t consider your attraction to be overbearing, but rather easy-going, warm, and friendly.

Your partner knows that you accept them as they are, and they gladly behave open and free around you. You have fun together, enjoying many of the same social activities or hobbies. You’re relaxed around each other. You are both comfortable being intimate with each other and sharing your inner selves.

The most significant part of this overlay is that you make each other feel comfortable in your own skin, with all your weird habits. You have no fear of rejection because you accept each other as you are.

The attraction here is light and friendly, not necessarily deep and emotional. But this open atmosphere does draw you both to open up to each other and share your inner thoughts and dreams. While not entirely emotional, there is some depth to the type of intimate bond that this overlay can create. Although this overlay is excellent for friends, this is also a positive atmosphere in which romantic love can grow and thrive.

Venus in 12th House Synastry Overlay

If your Venus is in your partner’s 12th house of a synastry overlay, you find yourself deeply moved in strange ways by the house person. For example, you may not be a needy person, but you find yourself being very needy or vulnerable around the house person.

The house person may feel that you put out some “false advertising.” You (the Venus person) were one type of person when they met you, but in this relationship you act somewhat different. The house person can’t really understand certain aspects about you. They may feel that you are a dream come true, but at the same time, they’re not sure that this dream will last.

It’s the 12th house overlay affecting both of you. Something about this overlay makes you feel insecure, as if the relationship is going to end but you don’t know why. The Venus person tries to hold on to the relationship, which confuses the house person even more. The house person doesn’t know if you want to continue or end the relationship.

There’s an ephemeral quality to this overlay, so enjoy this mystical union while you have it. Now you see it, soon you may not.

  1. All the interpretations on this website seem to have overlays backwards – isn’t it the house person who FEELS the impact of the planet person? After all, that’s where they are “hit” by the other person…

      The house person feels the impact, only after the planet person acts in a certain way. The planet person first acts depending on the impression they get from the house. This is just like when you walk into someone’s home for the first time, you get an immediate impression based on what you see there. The planets enter a person’s house, and each planet responds differently to the vibes of each house. How the planet person first reacts will then impact the house person.

        Do SIGNS play an important role in house synastry?

        For example, a girl I’ve fallen for, has her Venus in my 12th house. Her natal Venus is in Virgo, I have Virgo in my 12th house. We also have an EXACT aspect of Venus conjunct Jupiter (she’s Venus), in my 12th house where I also have Jupiter.

        I’ve fallen for her hard, can this mean she feels something for me too? I know it’s just one “thing” but is it safe to say some feelings on her part could be prevalent based on the above information?
