Venus – Jupiter Aspects: Conjunct Sextile Trine Square Opposition
Venus conjunct Jupiter
Whether these people are shy or outgoing, law-abiding or reckless, quiet or loud…they possess a very grand idea of love, and they have an indulgent side to them that is unmistakable, and possibly hard to control. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and in this case, it’s enlarging the qualities of Venus: romance, relationship, pleasure, and money. This doesn’t necessarily mean that all of these things will come easily to natives with a Venus-Jupiter conjunction. But the appetite for pleasure, romance, and, in some cases, material things, is big. Their hearts are big too–most of the time, if given a choice, they’ll opt for the high road. They are generous with people they love (and with themselves!), dangerous with a credit card, and incurable romantics. They tend to assign positive traits to the people they love, whether those people deserve them or not!
One of their weak spots is their love of pleasure. Some have a definite lazy streak. They are very affectionate people who are generous with their emotions and, usually, their pocketbook too. When they care about you, they are quite loyal and faithful. Their opinions about love and friendship are strong–they generally have lofty ideals in these areas. Their hearts are open and they have a tendency to want to give a lot to the people they love. They may live beyond their means, especially if the conjunction is challenged by other planets. They need to learn not to borrow from their future.
They have a greater than average need to grow in their love relationships, and to shower their partners with acceptance and warmth. They have a strong need for growth, good humor, and fun in their relationships. They have a marked disdain for insincerity, placing great value on people with good intentions and good hearts. They do whatever they can to make those around them feel comfortable, accepted, and of value exactly as they are.
Interpretation sample from the Your Spiritual Path report — The pursuit of wisdom parallels the pursuit of love in your life. Any conflict in love relationships causes you to consider your spiritual values all over again. You may like the stage of falling in love with a spiritual idea so much that you choose to do it many times before you establish a solid foundation.

Venus square or opposition Jupiter
These people are big-hearted and warm, with open hearts and a tendency to want to give a lot to the people they love. They can have some problems with following through on their promises, however–not because of any ill intent, but because they sometimes overestimate their personal capabilities, and want to do more, and give more, than is actually possible. At distinct times in their lives, they have a tendency to live beyond their means. They need to be cautious about the tendency to feel overly-optimistic or overly protected. Borrowing from their future and overdoing their indulgence in pleasures is a marked tendency. While people with the conjunction, sextile, or trine between Venus and Jupiter express their bigheartedness, tolerance, generosity, and magnanimity in a generally constant and natural manner, these same expressions for those people with the square, opposition, and quincunx between these planets tend to be problematic at times. Their need for growth, good humor, and fun in their relationships is marked, as is their disdain for insincerity. However, they may attract just those kinds of people simply because they are looking so hard for these traits that they assign them onto undeserving people!
Moderation is the most important, and perhaps challenging, lesson in these people’s lives.
Interpretation sample from the Your Spiritual Path report — Your sense of form and harmony extend into the important relationships of your life. You seek a strong philosophical connection to match the physical passion. Faithfulness is a key factor if your relationship is to support your spiritual growth, and trust has to work both ways in the partnership.

Venus sextile or trine Jupiter
These people have an easy smile, a warm and responsive sense of humor, and a rather easygoing manner when they’re feeling comfortable. Although they are unlikely to seek out people to help, they’re quite quick to lend a helping hand if the need arises. It’s natural for these people to incorporate humor into romantic and sexual moments, and they don’t always understand more serious approaches. They are capable of much romance, but playfulness comes naturally to them. They can be extravagant, at times, with their pocketbook, but usually have the good sense to stop before things get out of hand. They expect to grow in their social and personal relationships. Stagnation makes little if any sense to them. Their appreciation for the good things in life is evident but not excessive. Often people with these aspects are in a position to offer opportunities to others, usually with regards to work and career.
The trine aspect is the more dynamic of the two harmonious aspects. Those with the sextile can call upon these traits when needed, and those with the trine between the Venus and Jupiter have incorporated the traits of the aspect into their personalities, expressing them naturally and consistently.
Interpretation sample from the Your Spiritual Path report — Your magnetic nature attracts others to you, and you are popular without making much effort. Sharing your spiritual joy does not have to involve sharing on the physical level.
