Venus is your sign’s planetary ruler and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you receive double influence from the planet. Venus can be considered the planet of sensitivity, cooperation, and appreciation of art. It is not wonder that these qualities are so present in your personality. It is Venus’ s influence that also explains for your highly romantic nature. Although you may be slow to commit, you are fully devoted to loving relationships once that have been established. You use your creativity and imagination to find new ways to spoil your partners. You find the same enjoyment in your surroundings, which you take care to insure are aesthetically pleasing. If your planetary influence had one downfall, it would be that you appreciate beauty to such a high degree, that you may be overcommitted to a life of luxury.
