Venus governs our lives’ aspects associated with fame, hobbies, art, and relationship. The transit of Venus affects everyone differently, but it affects the areas of life it represents the most. Based on its position in the house of any horoscope, Venus’s transit can bring or take away your reputation, luxury and affect your love life.

Whereas the debilitated position of Venus and ruling 4th and 11th house makes the person modest and give them a reserve personality due to which they may not express their love feelings to the partner.|
