Support comes in many forms
According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love.
Taurus deals with things of value ... especially things of material and financial value. Money certainly falls in that category. Libra rules close relationships, important alliances and partnerships -- like marriage. Love should certainly be part of that arrangement. So, yes, there's some basis for Venus and her intriguing public reputation.
But it's also so much more
But like any grand concept reduced down to one or two words, this broad definition misses a lot about the complexity and range of Venus energy. When you understand its real scope, Venus energy is about so much more than bank accounts and bed partners. And yet she also combines those two special life areas in ways both noble and every bit as conniving as any mix of legal contracts, money matters and love connections sounds, even on the surface.
But "love and money" is easy to remember. So hold onto that idea while we talk about the "much more" ruled by Venus ... and we'll build a more complete picture of what this really means. A more complete but simple definition is that Venus rules pleasure and things of value ... the things you enjoy and the things you deem important.

These are the only two planets in our Solar System of which this is true. The Earth, of course, has one Moon. All the other planets have multiples. Even Pluto has five. Although it's counter-intuitive, the fact is Venus, although farther from the Sun than Mercury, is actually hotter.
