Relationships and money are intimately connected in astrology. They are represented by the same planet (Venus) and some of the same houses (the 2nd and 8th Houses). Therefore, your approach to money will reflect your approach to relationships, and vice versa. This can be helpful when you encounter troublesome patterns in your love life. If you step back and look at your financial habits, there’s likely to be a strong correlation. Sometimes looking at the problem from a different angle can put it into perspective.
The Taurus side of Venus and the 2nd House (plus the 2nd House ruler and any planets in that house) represent personal survival needs, self-esteem, procreation and your body. The 2nd House and Venus also represent earned income and personal possessions. As a reminder about the difference between houses and planets, the house describes an area of your life (where) and the planet describes a function of your psyche or essence (what). The 8th House (plus 8th House ruler and planets in that house) represents what you share with another: intimacy, and any money that is not completely yours (debts, taxes, your partner’s finances). I haven’t forgotten about the 7th House and Libra, but those are about relating, comparison and projection, and don’t directly involve physical goods or security.
