Venus opposed Ascendant

Any planet conjunct one of the four angles is significant, and when that planet symbolizes what we value and love and how we relate it is very significant indeed. You were born as Venus was setting in the west. "Venus opposed the ascendant" is the same as Venus conjunct the descendant or seventh house cusp; it is from the latter perspective that this aspect will be interpreted.

The descendant is a symbolic condensation point for what we don't identify with in ourselves and therefore project onto or seek out in others or through intimate relationships. With Venus here you need a close partner or intimate one-to-one relationships to find value and love in your life. It is not that many people don't seek another to love, but rather that it may be easier for you to love someone else than to love yourself, and that by so doing you learn love in general and to love yourself specifically.

You truly need someone to love, someone with beauty and with the characteristics described by Venus' sign—and with this placement of Venus you'll probably get him or her! You love other people, large and small groups, and relationships in general. In some cases your social life could be at the expense of your personal expression, your family or your job.

Famous people with a relatively strong (orb < 5°) Venus opposed ascendant are/were Muhammad Ali, Samuel Beckett, George Braque, Joyce Brothers, Carol Channing, Anne Heche, Herbert von Karajan, Henri Matisse, Ed McMahon, Sydney Pollack, Dan Rather, Sarah Vaughan,  Johnny Weissmuller and Frank Lloyd Wright.

When Venus is conjunct the descendant it can be in either the 6th or the 7th house. Venus in the sixth house and within 3° or 4° of the descendant is on the "dark side" of the 7th house cusp and expresses itself in both houses. As it moves even closer to the descendant while yet in the 6th house it expresses itself more and more predominantly through the 7th. Still in the 6th and within about 1°-1˝° of the descendant it should be considered as being in the 7th house. This dark side effect is true of all the planets and all the angles.
