Venus in 6th House
Those born with their Venus, the planet of love, in their 6th house are fond of routine. They want to be surrounded by harmony, and for everything to run smoothly in order to be happy. They are willing to do the extra work to make their life this way. This position shows a person that takes a great deal of pride in their actions. They are very committed what they see as their ‘duty’ in whatever they do.
When it comes to work, they are above average workers and enjoy making things orderly and presentable. They love to organize and set things into place. This house is ruled by Virgo, which can sometimes be a perfectionist. They may either expect those they love to be perfect or expect of themselves to be perfect, but none will even suffice with this attitude. They want someone that fits in their daily routine, and makes their daily routine enjoyable.
Someone that adds too much negativity, stress, or even excess emotion can turn this person off. They do have a huge need for sharing themselves and their skills. When they love someone, they may not be extremely verbal in expressing it, but they will do many tangible things for them to show the person that they love them. They quite literally use their actions to speak for their heart.
With an unevolved Venus in the 6th house, this person may expect their lover to do everything FOR them and not feel loved if their lover doesn’t ‘take care’ of them or show their love in a tangible way. It can swing both ways, but most people are the first mentioned, wanting to be of service more than anything else. They believe that being useful is the best way to find love. They must realize though, that by giving too much of themselves they can be taken advantage of.
Venus in the 6th don’t tend to be pushovers and are very realistic in their approach to love, but can be blindsided with manipulation if they have low self esteem, doing everything in their power to keep their lover by providing for them. This is not love. Finding someone to appreciate what you do for them is a better option. As well as mutual helpfulness. You can find self love by catering to your own needs and not punishing yourself for not being perfect.
Venus in the 6th House
Your expressions of love and affection are practical and helpful. Being of service to a partner is especially important to you. In fact, you might go to great lengths to be available at all costs to a loved one. While you may not be flowery or showy when it comes to expressing love, you show your love by your availability, rendering services, doing practical things for a loved one, and other thoughtful "little" things.
Many of you are talented at design work, as you appreciate and pay much attention to all of the little parts that make up a whole, with the goal of finding order and harmony in these systems. If you are not careful, you might pass up on true love opportunities in favor of relationships that serve a practical purpose in your life, or out of fear that you might not find better. Selling yourself short may be something that keeps you from going after what and who you want.
