What Your Venus Sign Can Tell You About Relationships, Beauty, and Money
Whether you feel like you can totally relate to memes about being a sentimental, caregiving — and okay, sometimes, tearful — Cancer or you feel nothing like a supposedly stoic, workaholic Capricorn, the most basic info most people know about astrology is their sun sign, based entirely on their birth month and day. The big, bright, warm celestial body — aka luminary — spends roughly four weeks in each of the 12 signs, and wherever it was on the day you were born offers valuable intel on your core identity, confidence, self-esteem, self-image, sense of self, and life path.
But it's really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your whole, unique astrological picture, aka your natal (birth) chart. Your chart is a snapshot of the sun, sure, but also the moon and all of the planets, captured at the moment you were born. and takes your birth location into consideration too. And we pro astrologers can tell you what all of these placements — and how they mix and match with one another — say about your personality, your strengths, challenges, your relationships, and more.
And while it's best to get that big picture overview at some point, there's also a lot to learn from each building block of the chart, like, say, your Venus sign.
Venus' Meaning In Your Birth Chart
Every celestial body speaks to a particular aspect of your personality and wiring as you move through your life. For example, the glimmery, romantic moon informs how you feel and intuit. It's your inner emotional compass, which also influences the experiences, people, and material items in life that offer you a sense of security. And it plays a part in how you connect emotionally with others — specifically, how you nurture and want to be nurtured. (More here: What Your Moon Sign Means About Your Personality and Life Path)
On the other hand, the placement of Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money, in your chart speaks to how you relate to others, how you express yourself romantically (aka how you flirt) and artistically, how you experience pleasure, and what you value and see as aesthetically-pleasing.
That said, understanding your Venus sign and its meaning can help you better understand what you'll find most satisfying in love and other relationships, your sense of style, and how you can attract and generate income.
How to Figure Out Your Venus Sign
As Venus moves through the signs, it covers roughly one degree per day. That means it spends about a month in a sign. It also goes retrograde every 18 months. For that reason, the best way to pinpoint your natal Venus is to look at your natal chart or use an online Venus sign calculator to identify where it was at the time of your birth.
Your Venus Return
Okay, say you've figured out that your Venus is in Leo. (Roar — more on that in a bit.) And your partner's Venus is in Leo, too. But there's yet another layer to consider here. As planets move through signs, they traverse 30 degrees of that sign. (Imagine a highway that has 30 different exits all in the same city.) So, when you were born, Venus was in one of the 12 signs as well as a degree of that sign. For example, Jennifer Aniston's Venus is at 9 degrees of Aries. Meanwhile, Poet Amanda Gorman's is at 2 degrees of Aquarius.
About once a year, Venus spends time in the exact spot where it was in when you were born, which is referred to as your Venus return. If you can pinpoint this period of time and tune in to how you're feeling and what you're experiencing at the moment, it could offer clues on your relationships, self-expression, and earning in the year ahead.
A Bit About Venus Compatibility
Venus is a key player when looking at zodiac sign compatibility. Exploring how it interacts with another person's sun, moon, and Mars can offer helpful intel on whether you'll hit it off or struggle to connect.
- Sun: If your Venus conjunct (aka the same sign) or trine (in the same element — earth, fire, air, water) as their sun (or vice versa), you can expect admiration and romance to flourish between you two.
- Moon: If your Venus sign is positively connecting with your partner's moon — or vice versa — chances are you'll be in sync in terms of what you value and find brings you a sense of security.
- Mars: If your Venus is conjunct or trine your S.O.'s Mars (or vice versa), sexy chemistry abounds.
Venus Signs, Explained
Once you pinpoint your natal Venus (aka your Venus sign), read on for the basic traits you might identify with, depending on which of the 12 signs it fell in at the time of your birth. And if you want to astro-nerd out further, think about the degrees of your Venus sign, which could further influence its expression. For instance, if your Venus occurs at 0 degrees, there's a sense of curiosity and desire to learn in order to grow into the characteristics of your Venus sign. If it falls in the middle degrees (14 to 16), you'll feel very much in tune and entrenched with the vibe and purpose of your Venus sign. And if it is in the final degree (29), you might feel like a seasoned veteran in your ability to harness the strengths and embrace the weaknesses of your natal Venus.

If your Venus falls in dynamic fire sign Aries, you tend to hit the gas as soon as you're interested in someone romantically. You're impulsive, spirited, playful, competitive (you see trivia night or playing a sport as a hot date), and will treat a fiery debate as a fantastic form of foreplay. On a bad day, because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac — and might exhibit childish, immature, and self-centric behavior — your instinct could be to put "me" above "we."
The sign of the Bull is one of two signs Venus rules (the other being Libra), so it's super comfortable here, and therefore, you probably are also very centered in all things Venusian: love, beauty, money. Your love language might be physical touch, and you take your time in bed, adoring any opportunity to infuse intimate experiences with luxury and sensuality. The potential negative side of this placement is that you could be possessive, materialistic, stubborn, and suffer from black-and-white thinking.
If you were born with Venus in the loquacious air sign Gemini, you tap into your adoration of language and mental stimulation in a major way when connecting with others. Word play, dirty talk, and flirtatious, witty banter over text are all your terrain. But because you're a bit cerebral, you might intellectualize romance, which can keep you in your head and a bit distanced from your heart. You'll come off as lighthearted but also noncommittal. The cons of having Venus in Gemini: You might be fickle, flitting from one object of affection to another, and zeroed in on superficial, surface-level matters in love.
If you were born with Venus in mushy water sign Cancer, you show someone you love them by taking care of them. You'll bake cookies for your friend who just had her appendix out, help your S.O. do laundry when they're short on time, and make sure that the home you share with anyone — a partner, a roomie, family — feels tranquil, cozy, and secure. You're endlessly sentimental, mooning over photos from months ago and reminiscing about all the details of a magical first date. The drawbacks of this placement: You can get cranky (cough, crabby) — especially if you feel like you've been giving more than your loved one — withdrawing into your shell and snapping if you're pushed beyond your comfort zone in a sensitive moment.
If Venus was in the charismatic, driven fire sign Leo at the time of your birth, you're extremely aware of what you want in love — and that's basically the style of romance other signs might only expect to see on the big screen. You're sunny, loyal, generous, demonstrative, and might enjoy showering the people you adore in lavish gifts. You crave attention and the spotlight, but you also offer the same to someone you're head over heels for. The cons of this placement: You might exaggerate how you feel — possibly even to yourself — because you want that cinematic-level love, and because are apt to be self-focused, you might need to remind yourself to make space for a partner's needs and desires as well as your own.
Being born with Venus in the analytical, supercommunicator earth sign Virgo means wanting to be of service to those you care about. Usefulness is love, and you often try to help others by tapping into your attention to detail. You'll offer to organize your friend's closet for them, intensely research the best Thai restaurants in town to be sure your date is getting the ultimate pad see ew, or create spreadsheets to support your sibling through a big life decision. You want to be appreciated for all the minutiae, tasks, and chores you take on — feeling seen is the fast track to your heart. On a bad day, you can be nitpicky, fussy, anxious, worrisome, and suffer from overthinking.
Libra is one of two signs Venus rules (Taurus is the other), so the planet of love is comfy in it, and therefore, you're also innately centered when it comes to Venusian themes. You want to be swept off your feet à la a Jane Austen novel. You prioritize partnership and want all the trappings of your love life to look Instagram perfect, to be social, and to feel balanced, harmonious, and ideally free of conflict. In fact, there's really nothing you abhor more than conflict and injustice, and to prove it, you're generally open to hearing both sides of every argument. The negative side of this placement: You can be passive-aggressive, wishy-washy, and overly concerned with appearances.
Born with Venus in the fixed water sign Scorpio? You're intense, magnetic, sensual, and looking for transformative, intimate, deep, meaningful bonds. When you fall for someone, it can be tough for you to be light and airy. Instead, you'll be reserved, mysterious, and aloof until you know they're on the same page, and then you're all in. Commitment is absolutely your jam — as is expressing how you feel through highly emotional, body-and-soul sex play. The drawbacks of Venus in Scorpio: You can be controlling, manipulative, and struggle to go with the flow.
If you were born when Venus was in the adventurous fire sign Sagittarius, you're free-spirited, entertaining, and believe bigger is better. You want to experience life — and love — in a bold, no-holds-barred way, which often means traveling to distant locations or learning a new language or style of meditation or how to cook exotic dishes. Being fenced in or held back in any way is a major turn-off, given your independent spirit. You also love to pontificate, philosophize, and occasionally get on a soap box to share your grandiose ideas and opinions. On the negative side, your unfiltered, "sorry not sorry" vibe can be harsh or hurtful to loved ones, and you might ditch an otherwise fulfilling relationship for not being exciting enough.
If you were born when Venus was in industrious earth sign Capricorn, you're wired to take slow, steady, pragmatic steps toward building lasting bonds — with a love match, a friend, or a business partner. You tend to think very rationally and somewhat traditionally when it comes to romance. Roses, candelit dinners, a timeline for DTR-ing, monogamy, engagement, tying the knot — you likely want that whole classic picture, and you'll put your nose to the grindstone to get it. You aim to attract people by showing them that you're in control, goal-oriented, serious, and responsible. The drawback of this placement: You can be reserved, frugal, aloof — all of which might be challenging for someone who's a fan of more demonstrative or lavish displays of affection.
If you were born with Venus in the futuristic air sign Aquarius, your romantic personality can best be described as platonic, offbeat, and humanitarian. You want to talk to your date about how they think we ought to tackle climate change or address a local political issue, gush to your BFF about the latest Apple Watch, and plan group dates with your diverse friend group. You beeline for friends-with-benefits situationships or other unconventional arrangements, because anything mainstream often doesn't sit right with you. You also prefer to bond with people over ideals, visions, and intellectual thoughts. The negative side of Venus in Aquarius? You can be cold and require a lot of distance, space, independence, all of which can be problematic if a partner is looking for something steamier, committed, intimate, and formal.
If Venus was in the romantic water sign Pisces when you were born, you're sensitive, empathic, and slightly psychic when it comes to matters of the heart. You might find it challenging to not take on other people's pain as your own — especially when you're in an intimate relationship with them. You consider it your mission to experience love in a dreamy, spiritual way, to heal others, and to express your most deeply felt emotions through an artistic outlet. You're loving, compassionate, and intuitive. On a bad day, though, Venus in Pisces can give way to escapist tendencies and delusion. You'll likely work on standing in your sense of self and finding a way to get grounded in love.

You may know your “big three” signs, but getting to know the roles of all the planets in your birth chart can grant you a much deeper understanding of astrology….and yourself! In this series, the team at VICE'sAstro Guideexplain each planet, and how it correlates to your natal chart.
Venus is the planet of love, beauty, values, and money, and its placement in your natal chart can tell us what you’re attracted to, be it in romantic partners, in aesthetics like art or fashion, or in life in general. It also tells us what you attract in terms of people, gifts, and resources, and how you attract what you want to you (alluring Venus loves to be adored!).
Almost anything related to pleasure can be considered Venusian in astrology: love, dating, beauty, art, fashion, perfume, jewelry, money, gifts. Venus rules Taurus and Libra, two signs associated with style and decadence, and often considered the most fashionable signs of the zodiac. In a natal chart, Venus can offer insights into what makes someone feel attractive, what they find beautiful, and what they’re willing to devote themselves to.
To find your Venus sign, plug in your birth date, time, and place into your preferred birth chart generator and find the symbol near your sun sign that looks like a handheld mirror. Venus never strays more than two signs away from the sun, so your Venus sign will be within two signs behind or ahead of your sun sign. Once you’ve figured it out, read what our team of astrologers at Astro Guide have to say about your Venus sign!
People with Venus in Aries are fearless, direct, and confident in love. You know what you want when you see it, and are more prone than most to experiencing love at first sight…but your curiosity must be piqued to keep your attention and sustain passion! You’re not interested in having a meek partner and prefer to be with someone who can stand up for themself. You can be pushy to get what you want, sometimes showing off to get your crush’s attention. You’re courageous with your love, willing to take risks if it means obtaining the object of your affection, and you generally don’t believe in being fussy or elaborate.
Your love can be taken at face value, though you can sometimes be impulsive in your relationships. You may have a dramatic sex appeal—think leather, fishnets, red lipstick—or are too busy running around to wear more than whatever’s comfortable. You have a loud sense of style and others perceive you as fearless, bold, sexy, and confident. Though you’re often quick to pick up the tab, it would help to remember that it’s OK to let someone else take care of you, too. There’s an inherent childlike innocence about you, and your relationships, romantic or otherwise, can teach you a lot about what it takes for you to feel safe and trusting.
Venus is home in the sign of Taurus, and people with this placement are very grounded and often in touch with their sensuality. You value security and enjoy indulging your senses with soft fabrics, beautiful scents, decadent meals, and relaxing massages. That said, retail therapy and mouth-watering desserts are amazing treats, but too much of a good thing can leave you working harder to maintain your financial and physical health—two things you actually really care about!
You commit to partners—or decide to end things with partners—through a slow process of deliberation, and prefer romantic relationships to run smoothly. You’re content with things staying the same as long as they’re pleasant. Affectionate details, like a whisper in the ear or a kiss on the neck, are the kinds of things that get you going. You’re very patient, but it would be wise for your partners to avoid pushing or testing your limits. If you do break-up with someone, it will likely have something to do with not feeling valued.
People with Venus in Gemini are social butterflies who deeply value intellectual connection. You’re generally a flirty person who enjoys witty banter, and it isn’t difficult for you to strike up a conversation with a stranger—you believe everyone is just a friend you haven’t met yet! It’s important to you that you’re viewed as intelligent, clever, and interesting, and have a tendency to dress on the youthful side. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, so you can sometimes be interested in or date people out of curiosity rather than wholehearted romantic interest, and you’re definitely more likely than other signs to be into someone for their mind than their body.
Good communication is a must for your relationships, and you do not do well with partners who aren’t forthcoming. You enjoy flirting over text, are adept at double entendres, and think good conversation is foreplay. You like to keep your partner guessing, and hope they’d do the same for you—in fact, boredom is a death knell for your partnerships. You prefer variety in love, and don’t like to tie yourself down to one mode of being in a relationship. Your love language is likely words of affirmation; you like to express your affection and hear it back, too!
For those with Venus in Cancer, relationships are centered on emotions, and how they can be of service to make their partner feel safe and nurtured. Cancer is known as a caring water sign, so you’re acutely sensitive to your partner’s emotional world, and want to create a safe space where love can blossom. Your ideal partner is someone who feels like family, or can integrate into your own family seamlessly, like someone who is good with children or takes care of others. Though you have a demure and domestic side, you also sometimes need plenty of space, and have a deep well of sexual passion within you.
You’re unlikely to make the first move unless you feel really comfortable with someone, and are more likely to flirt by sharing your feelings or indulging in others’. You might flirt with someone by cooking for them, inviting them to your home, or demonstrating that you remember small details about them. Venus in Cancer folks are often fairly traditional, and you might be more likely to believe in celebrating every anniversary, reminisce about the past, and have regular family gatherings with lots of food. You like keepsakes and heirlooms and have a hard time letting go of a relationship once it ends. You expect to care deeply for your partner, and to be cared for in return—to you, loving someone means being supportive, and becoming each other’s family.
Venus in Leo folks need to know that their partners see and adore them. You’re bright, funny, charming, full of infectious laughter, and can easily capture the gaze of those around you. Leo is known as the superstar of the zodiac, so you’re more likely to wear things that are loud or colorful and flirt with people by showing off. Like Leo’s ruling planet, the Sun, you love to be the center of attention. You’re generally loyal and want a partner that you’d be proud to show off to the crowd; you’re the Venus placement most likely to believe in “leagues” (and believe that yes, you’re out of most people’s), and public displays of affection are more likely to turn you on than off.
Once you’ve honed in on an object of affection, you like to dote on them in grandiose ways, showering them with compliments and giving them extravagant gifts. You have a strong desire to be your lover’s favorite, but if you aren’t mindful of consciously working with your insecurities, you may get a bit catty when someone diverts attention from you. You believe love should be a magical fairytale and take great offense if your partner forgets a major event, birthday, or anniversary—especially if that means they forgot to get you a present! You believe love should always be romantic and unconditional, and can be deeply wounded if relationships lose their sparkle. You love the chase, and your ideal partner is someone who challenges you in life!
Venus in Virgo is a more challenging placement; people with this in their chart may be hard on others because they’re also hard on and incredibly critical of themselves. Being honed in on flaws can also make it difficult for you to enjoy yourself, and you may need the help of your lovers and partners to get out of your head and stop over-analyzing! Remember: Virgo is the sign of flawlessness, and the truth is that who you are is already perfect. Virgo is also the sign of service, so you’re likely to show your interest in someone by waiting on them hand and foot. You often do small things that can go unnoticed, and might have trouble receiving favors or gifts since you might feel guilty and obligated to reciprocate right away.
It’s the little things that speak the loudest to you; you’ll remember how your crush takes their coffee or tea and appreciate when someone returns this thoughtfulness with gestures like remembering what you like or a story you shared. You’re also very attuned to cleanliness and unlikely to be interested in someone who is messy or has bad hygiene. In fact, you’re probably the placement most likely to break up with someone on the grounds that their breath stinks! But you’re not afraid to dive into the unsexy details to maintain a relationship and believe that true love is dedication.
People with Venus in Libra are charming, charismatic, and usually quite popular because they know how to appeal to anyone. Even if you don’t fit the conventional standards of beauty, you exude charisma, intelligence, and grace, making it hard for people not to be attracted to you! You have a hard time making up your mind, often waiting to commit until the very last moment because you’re afraid of making the wrong choice when it comes to love. You flourish with a partner who’s considered charming and well-mannered, and has good taste!
As the sign of justice, Libra requires an intelligent partner, and you wouldn’t consider dating someone unless they were demonstrably intelligent. You value the art of conversation—both spoken and written—which makes it hard for you to be attracted to someone if they can’t intrigue you with their ideas. Venus in Libra is also very concerned with fairness, so you prefer to spend time with people who treat others with kindness and abide by the golden rule. You’re a diplomat who loves love and rarely shows up without a plus one!
People with Venus in Scorpio are concerned with the intensity, passion, honesty, and intimacy of a relationship. You exude a hypnotic and charismatic quality but can sometimes be unsure of yourself, which you hide with an austere or guarded way of dealing with people you have feelings for.
You’re unlikely to be the first to admit you have feelings for someone; perhaps because Scorpio is the sign of mystery or you may be afraid your confidence will take a hit. When you are into someone, you dig deep to find out everything you can about a lover, and flirt really well without others noticing, like dropping a joke under your breath or sneaking in a grazing touch. You’re unlikely to trust a partner until it has been proven to you that you can, and you can be possessive and have a hard time letting go. You’re generally an incredibly loyal partner, but operate with a scorched earth policy. Your love has a deep, penetrating, and gutsy quality to it that could make more prudish folks turn bashful or shy.
People with Venus in Sagittarius are bold, flirty, party-goers who aren’t afraid to make a fashion statement! You pursue love without reservation and may have unconventional love interests. You’re open to dating someone very unlike you, and are impressed when someone takes a strong stance and stands up for their beliefs. You believe love should be playful and want a partnership where you encourage each other’s freedom and personal philosophies. You love to debate, you’re a contrarian at heart, and you don’t believe in growing old with a partner—you’d much rather grow young with them!
You like to get the attention of a love interest by goofing off or being loud, and you don’t form attachments very easily. In fact, you have no reservations about letting go and believe that love should be lighthearted and carefree, with partners free to grow into the best version of themselves. You show your love by making your partner laugh and demonstrating how open-minded you are. You fear stagnation and the feeling of being tied down by relationships, and are more likely to be interested in non-traditional approaches to partnership.
People with Venus in Capricorn take love seriously! You love a partner who seems stable and reliable, but you may also be attracted to someone who seems walled off or unapproachable. You’re unlikely to be into a “wild child” type and the sign most likely to crave a traditional fancy dinner first date. You’re reserved in expressing affection and often choose to do so by purchasing high ticket gifts for a partner, like jewelry, flowers, or top quality items. You enjoy hearing about your date’s ambitions and are unlikely to be interested in someone who isn’t a high achiever. You want to be with someone who’s seen as credible, serious, and educated, which is why you often date more mature or older partners. Sensuality and touch are also very important to you.
Similarly, you flirt by showing how responsible you are, or by talking about your successes at work. You’re unlikely to commit to a relationship that doesn’t meet the conventional standards of what a functional relationship should look like. You flourish with a partner who shows loyalty, commitment, and sustainability, and is clear about their boundaries and intentions. You believe in being responsible with the way you love, and treat relationships like investments. Once you decide someone is worthy of your time and affection, you’re ready to put them in your five-year plan.
People with Venus in Aquarius believe that being in love means being best friends. You take a humanitarian approach to relationships and believe in decency above all else, to the occasional point of being detached. That said, you’re very loyal, even when you seem aloof. You are most attracted to people who have developed character and a vivid sense of self, especially if it strays from mainstream ideas of how a person is “supposed to be.” You’re a progressive person who loves to experiment and spend time with rebels and eccentrics—after all, you’re one, too!
You flirt by drawing attention to how different or open-minded you are, and you love and accept unconventional people as they are. You are more interested than others in non-traditional relationship structures and think it’s crucial that you and your partner have the freedom to explore sexuality. Open-minded partners and relationships are an absolute necessity for you!
People with Venus in Pisces can bring the shallow beauty of Venus to a deeper, more transcendental state. You have a sentimental and romantic quality about you, and see past appearances and status when it comes to romance. You are adept at subtlety and nuance and know how to weave together a magical moment.
You’re laid back, possibly to the point of laziness—but you’re just as likely to crave a chill night in with your lover as you are to go on a days-long bender of dancing and romance. You’re most interested in being with people who validate your emotional and spiritual experiences, and can enjoy feeling vulnerable or being in a position where you are taken over by others. That said, you’re also known to project feelings and fantasies onto crushes and partners, which eventually leads to major disappointment. You love to get lost in the idea of romance and may often find yourself heavily infatuated with artists. Vulnerability and sacrifice are your biggest turn-on, and you believe sex should be transcendent and without boundaries.

Venus in Aries

Venus in Aries men and women behave in a childlike, fun-loving manner in love. They are turned on by energy and activity.

These lovers are playful — some might even call them a tease. They are hard to pin down, and they resist relationships that promise to become too “comfortable”. Even those with their Sun in Taurus or Cancer, whose outward demeanor may suggest some reserve and caution, will want their relationships to be stimulating and full of conversation with Venus in Gemini.
Venus in Gemini men and women don’t want to be tied or bogged down in their relationships. They appreciate lightheartedness in love. Although they are willing to talk (perhaps endlessly) about the relationship, you may get the feeling that they gloss over some of the deeper issues. In love, their tastes change often, and it can be hard to know what to expect from one day to the next (or, sometimes, from one hour to the next!).
Pleasing Venus in Gemini involves supporting their need for fun and variety, showing interest in their brainpower and knowledge, and giving them space for friends and activities outside of the relationship. Let them know just how much fun you have with them. Try not to get overly miffed by Venus in Gemini’s changeable, fickle ways. Remember that time spent with your lover will be exciting and invigorating.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I am fun-loving. My ideal date consists of going to a cafe, taking in a movie, and talking about it.”
Venus in Gemini sometimes get involved in relationships solely out of curiosity. They are intellectually curious about people, and are eternally fascinated by social interactions. Although they usually enjoy flirting, they may remain somewhat aloof when it comes to matters of the heart.
Curiosity motivates them on romantic and social levels. “Variety is the spice of life” is their attitude in love, in social relationships, and with personal possessions. They are sociable, communicative, and interested. They can be animated and fun but may also keep their distance on an emotional level. Attractions often begin with words, as they tend to bond more readily on a mental level. The shadow side of Venus in Gemini is fickleness.
Venus in Gemini people spend money on books, information, social events. They are somewhat fickle when it comes to their attachment to objects and personal possessions, and they seek variety in the things that they own. Some enjoy the thought that can go behind making purchases, weighing various options. They are attracted to art that is expressive, verbal and social in tone, light, and happy.
Venus in Cancer
Love for Venus in Cancer is best when it is committed and rather predictable. These people are sensitive in love, even if their Sun sign is the more playful and outgoing signs of Gemini or Leo. You may even say their egos are a little underdeveloped when it comes to love, but they have a lot to give in return: namely, security, comfort, and care.
Venus in Cancer men and women show their love by caring for you. They pay more attention to your feelings than your words, and observe you rather carefully. They want a safe, solid relationship. They can be a little moody in love, and some go so far as giving silent treatments and engaging in pouting routines to get attention from their mate. They are turned off by anything impersonal, and too much rationalizing leaves them cold. They are not afraid of emotional confrontations (even if they have a Gemini Sun and appear flighty in other areas of life). Still, these lovers are always worried they’ll be left high and dry. If you’ve hurt them, they’ll have a hard time forgetting. Every so often, they’ll retreat into themselves (not unlike a Crab), and it can be difficult to pull them out. This is when they use their extraordinary “nursing” abilities on themselves, instead of you…and you simply don’t want that!
Pleasing Venus in Cancer involves lots of snuggling and sentimentality. Recognize their attachments to their family and home. Help them to feel confident with you — when they are fearful of being rejected, they can resort to some frustrating tactics to find out just how loved they are. Think about how a crab (the symbol of Cancer) moves towards its goal, and you will get a fair idea of Venus in Cancer’s approach. Do your best to make them feel secure and cared for, and you will be rewarded with a patient, dependable, and loving mate.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I’m just a regular guy/gal. I’ve built a solid foundation. I’m comfortable and comforting. I care. I stick around. My ideal date consists of eating in, and snuggling up to each other.”
Venus in Cancer people are sensitive, sentimental, and caring. They can be possessive and clannish. They will generally bend over backwards for someone they love, but might keep too much to themselves and eventually feel resentful if affection is not returned in a similar manner. Venus in Cancer people are nurturing, protective and self-protective, cautious, and fertile. They may experience many emotional ups and downs in love due to sensitivity and impressionability. They are tender, romantic, and attached. Cancer love is dedicated, warm, and devoted. They show their love through devotion, care, and concern. They are affectionate and cuddly, and are at their best when they feel safe and secure.
Too much attachment to the past can prevent Venus in Cancer people from enjoying the moment. In fact, the past may be glorified with Venus in Cancer to the point that the present is not appreciated, even though it will one day be the past!
Venus in Cancer people generally save for a rainy day and can be quite frugal with their money. They will spend the most on their family and close friends, as well as on building their homes. They are attracted to art that is traditional, homey, and romantic.
Venus in Leo
When Venus in Leo people are in love, they are proud, even boastful. This position of Venus can turn humble Virgo Suns or retiring Cancer Suns into somewhat demanding lovers. Venus in Leo loves to court and be courted, and they need to feel very special. They are warm, generous, and even grand. Though really quite loyal to their partners (remember that love is THE most important thing in Leo’s life), they thrive on romantic attention. Be prepared for their displays: they will tell you about any advances made on them. Remember, they’re just showing off to you, and it’s likely harmless. It’s a different story if you do the same, however. That’s when you’ll hear the lion roar…and, no doubt, you’ll want to keep these cats purring. Venus in Leo wants to appear experienced in love, even if they have little or no experience whatsoever!
Venus in Leo men and women have high expectations, but once you know that these expectations revolve only around how much attention you are giving them, you’ll see that they are really quite big-hearted about most everything else. They are threatened by a relationship that appears to have settled too much, or one that’s lost its spark. They are also threatened by indifferent or impersonal behavior on your part.
Although their needs for physical expression through sex are generally quite strong, their need for love is perhaps even stronger. It is hard for Venus in Leo people to separate love and sex, and even their most erotic fantasies are infused with love and affection. For this reason, few Venus in Leo folk would last long in a relationship that is mostly sexual. On the flip side, they may last longer in a love-only relationship in the absence of satisfying sex, but they are unlikely to feel very satisfied.
Pleasing Venus in Leo involves paying loads of attention to them. If you’re willing to make only one adjustment in your ways, it should be to remind Leo how wonderful they are. Respect and appreciate them, always. Put up with their childlike moments and their tall tales. They want to be seen as attractive by you, so avoid (at all costs!) putting them down in this area. They actually lose interest when they perceive the slightest loss of interest in their partner, and you can expect that any letdown will be acted out in a dramatic fashion. Remind them, in a gentle way, that your emotions count too. If you are feeling a little jealous, let them know. Remember, to Venus in Leo, your small jealousies are affirmations that you find them attractive and expect the rest of the world to as well. Let them decide where to go on a date, and let them pay too. When Venus in Leo feels loved and appreciated, they reward you with loyalty, a big sense of fun, and plenty of physical expressions of their love.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I’m warm-hearted and fun. I’m funny, and experienced. Let me show you a good time.”
Love is magnificent and grand to Venus in Leo people. They take pride in love and their love relationships, and they are typically generous with their money. This is a warmhearted, teasing, expressive, proud, and extravagant placement for Venus. Love is a bit of a game–a game that is perpetual, as Venus in Leo is forever stuck in the romance stage of a relationship. They feed on attention, acknowledgement, validation, and adoration. Venus in Leo loves to be adored, pampered, and admired. They have a strong ego investment in their love lives. The negative expression of this placement is overstating of feelings simply for the effect, as well as extravagance.
Venus in Leo people may spend a lot on entertainment or sometimes just to show off! They generally are big tippers and give special and generous gifts. They are attracted to art, furnishings, clothing, and music that is bold and passionate, renaissance, lush or opulent, lavishly comfortable, and romantic.
Venus in Virgo
Venus in Virgo people are not the flirtatious sort. Instead, their appeal lies in their dedication, their willingness to work on the relationship, and to make the relationship work in real terms. Unlike Venus in Leo, they won’t try to impress you with grand gifts or promises. Their gifts are less showy, but perhaps far more generous — gifts of devotion and attention to details about you.
Venus in Virgo men and women quietly (and often slowly) make their way into your heart. They are quite sensitive in love — even insecure — and this reserved, loner-like quality is part of their appeal. They prefer to play it safe in their relationships, and they need to be confident that you like them before they make a move. They are great listeners and they make it a habit to observe and learn all of your ins and outs. Their love can be of the Kindergarten variety — they show they care by nagging or criticizing. Remember, though, that they are not trying to hurt you when they are pointing out the flaws in your thinking, plans, or even character. They truly are trying to help! Venus in Virgo is attracted to nondescript people who have largely gone unnoticed. Show-offs and know-it-alls turn them off.
Pleasing Venus in Virgo involves showing you appreciate them for all the little things they do — and they do a lot. The problem is, they do these things so quietly that you may not always notice or credit them for all these kind gestures. They do need some space (after all, they’re generally quite busy making everything work), so give it to them. Be genuine, not ostentatious. They are really not difficult to please after you have taken care of these basic needs. Avoid pushing your friends or family on them too fast — remember they are a little shy. They aim to please, and are easily intimidated by your experiences. Let them know how much you value them, and they will reward you with devotion and a charming willingness to talk things out.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I will care for you, and do lots of little things for you. I will help you.”
Venus in Virgo people express their love through practical means and gestures–running errands, doing detail work, or just being there for their lovers. Love needs to make sense and have a purpose with Venus in Virgo. Virgo is an Earth sign, which is sensual but also quite practical. What they buy and the types of entertainment they enjoy are ruled by whether or not things make sense. They could easily feel guilty if they are too self-indulgent. Rendering services to others can fill a need, and can be an expression of love. The shadow side of this position is being overly critical of partners, picky, or worrisome. They might over-analyze their lovers, their lovers’ reactions and words chosen, and their love lives in general.
Venus in Virgo people often spend their money with care, and usually on practical items instead of frivolous ones.
Venus in Libra
Venus in Libra people will try to impress you with their kindness, evenhandedness, and willingness to make your relationship work. They have a polished manner in love, which sometimes makes them appear insincere or superficial. They are gentle lovers who hate to be offended. They are threatened by bad manners and direct or abrasive expression of feelings. They not only prefer to choose the middle road, they seek the middle ground in their relationships. You can expect to be treated fairly, and you may be turned on by Venus in Libra’s willingness to concede and adjust their lives to fully accommodate you.
Venus in Libra men and women have idealized images of their relationships, even to the point where the relationship becomes bigger than life, taking on a life of its own. They can become quietly resentful if they feel they are being taken advantage of — and they make it easy for more aggressive types to bully them around.
Pleasing Venus in Libra involves treating them kindly and fairly. They love to share everything with you, so let them. Foreplay for them can be mental — they love to communicate with you about the relationship. Sharing turns them on, and tactless or uncouth behavior is a turn-off. Although they seem to put up with a lot, be fair with them. Over time, imbalance in their relationship is sure to make them unhappy, and when it comes to this, they may try to even the score in subtle, roundabout ways. Don’t let it come to that, and you will be rewarded with a lover who puts themselves in your shoes and treats you exactly how they would like to be treated.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I’m just a nice guy/gal — some say I’m too nice. I’m romantic and love good conversations. I will please you. All I ask for is fairness.”
Venus in Libra people tend to employ charm rather than aggressive behavior in order to get what they want. Although Venus in Libra people virtually live for relationships, there can be an air of cool detachment to their demeanor. They are very obliging with others–quite willing to negotiate and compromise.
Venus in Libra people can be especially idealistic about love. They prefer things be done the “right” way, and are turned off by aggressive or uncouth behavior. The shadow side of this position is dependency, inconsistency, and superficiality. In an attempt to avoid unpleasant situations, they could easily gloss over deeper issues at play in their relationships. It’s probably best to avoid the trap of acquiescing to their partners but privately resenting the fact or thinking themselves martyrs for doing so! They can be quite artistically inclined. They tend to seek balance in their personal environment, and can be quite picky or choosy when it comes to aesthetics–balanced, harmonious, classical art is preferred. They abhor gawdy, tacky, or overly “noisy” art, clothing, furnishings, and music.
Venus in Scorpio
Venus in Scorpio people attract others with their intensity and willingness to commit. They have a strong and concentrated manner which suggests their feelings run deep. Their actions in love tend to promise deep commitment and sexual pleasure, even if they are not telling you this directly. Their appeal lies in their focus on you, and their dedication. Venus in Scorpio seems fearless when it comes to intimacy. Potential lovers get the feeling that Venus in Scorpio will never stray, that they are intensely loyal to the one they love. They possess you, and somehow make it seem attractive to be possessed.
Venus in Scorpio men and women give you their complete attention. These people are very focused on their partners. Depending on your personality, you may find this unnerving or entirely flattering. They have a strong need to control their partner, although this won’t be immediately apparent, and they may not ever admit to this. Their body-and-soul love and commitment can be so intense that it eclipses fun and makes loving them a very heavy experience. Their emotion and intensity may seem overdone to those looking for a more lighthearted relationship. These people take things to extremes, and can be very provocative. Although they want to explore all of your nooks and crannies, they won’t always be forthcoming with their own. When you’ve upset these lovers, you’ll know it. Depending on the moment, Venus in Scorpio will shoot you one of the most piercing glares around, or totally blow up. Whichever style they choose, a slighted Scorpio lover is not a pretty sight. These people can be jealous of all of your attachments, but few will admit it. They’re not afraid of being underhanded in matters of the heart, and they are experts at cutting through all the fluff and seeing you for what you are. Still, you may find their conclusions about you seem skewed and mistrustful.
Pleasing Venus in Scorpio involves demonstrating your complete commitment and loyalty to them. Appreciate their guts when it comes to love and intimacy — they’re proud of their courage in these matters. If you can, and they’re deserving, relinquish some of the control in the relationship. Let them feel they own you, without taking it to extremes. Remember, though, that some Venus in Scorpio lovers can and will take advantage of you on a subtle level, if only to keep you all to themselves. Let them have their secrets and their silences.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I’m emotional and deep. I’ll be very loyal too, forever. I’m looking for commitment. I’ll make you happy in bed.”
Deeply passionate relations are desired with Venus in Scorpio. Superficial flirtations and contacts do not satisfy, as they yearn for “body and soul” contact with someone special–contact that breaks the taboos, that is extreme and intense, and that is unforgettable. This is a highly emotional position for Venus. It is a passionate, sensual, and intense energy. Their relationships are immensely important to them, and they may even feel that relationships consume them. In fact, they tend to want to be consumed by them! Although the basic drive is toward intense closeness, blind faith in their partners is extremely hard. Fears of being too vulnerable or of giving up their own power to others is strong. Scorpio is an “all or nothing” energy, and relationships tend to be somewhat of a rollercoaster ride as a result. Disdain for mediocrity and superficiality can compel them to create crises in order to feel alive and vital.
They can be hard to figure out or to get close to because they can go from one extreme of emotion to the next quite quickly. They sometimes appear very sensitive and yielding, and other times completely closed off, for example.
Their tastes in art, clothing, furnishings, and music tend to be dark, surreal, gothic, passionate. Most of their true character lies beneath the surface, and what they choose to put on display may even be deceptive. Fashion trends mean little to them.
Venus in Sagittarius
When Venus in Sagittarius people are in love, they need to feel they can grow and expand their horizons through their relationship. They want to learn new things, and experience everything together. These are idealistic lovers who want you to appreciate their beliefs, visions, and ideals. They can be a confusing mix of the lighthearted and serious. They are roamers and seekers, and don’t commit in their relationships as easily as others.
Venus in Sagittarius men and women turn others on with their big smiles and laughs, their jokes, their grand schemes, their dreams, and their friendly, flirtatious behavior. They pride themselves on their open minds, but you may notice they can be judgmental too. They are threatened by inhibitions on the part of their lover, dullness, and emotional overkill. They are restless, and won’t put up with lovers who dwell on any one thing. When the going gets tough in their relationship, they have an overwhelming need to run away. Usually this only means getting out and experiencing something new before they come back, but sometimes it can be for good. They are attracted to people in love with life. You don’t need to be refined, polished, or graceful to win their favor.
Pleasing Venus in Sagittarius involves allowing them lots of room in the relationship to grow. Avoid getting stuck in a rut, and understand their need to move on. Learn to laugh, but take their rants and raves seriously. Avoid criticizing their beliefs, join them in debates, and philosophize along with them. When they feel the need for more experience, join them! Learn to look past their clumsiness with you and your feelings, and avoid cornering them or forcing them to commit.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I am fun and funny. I have joie de vivre and I love to laugh. I am open to experience.”
Romantic adventures, as well as a straightforward–even blunt–approach to love, are themes with Venus in Sagittarius. Truth and higher meaning are things that take priority with Sagittarius. There can be some inconstancy and possibly a tendency to escape or flee when love is too complex, intricate, or needy.
They are usually sincere, upright, and straightforward about what they want. They enjoy getting to know a lover on a philosophical level, exchanging ideas, and experiencing things together.
Venus in Sagittarius people are not always especially attached to personal possessions. They are not known to be especially frugal, although some of them equate money with freedom, and will gladly put money aside for travel.
Venus in Capricorn
Venus in Capricorn people will try to win your heart by displaying self-control, presence of mind, and responsible behavior. These lovers want you to know they are goal-oriented, witty, savvy, and controlled. Nobody can get the best of them. They want you to see just how competent they are. They like some measure of predictability in their relationships as they are cautious in love.
Venus in Capricorn men and women project an aura of competency and their loner-like behavior can be attractive, in a cool way. They don’t go gaa-gaa over love, or at least they don’t express as much. Their lovers may complain that Venus in Capricorns are a little too practical and deliberate. Certainly, they can come across as lacking in warmth and spontaneity. Truth is, they can be rather romantic souls who yearn for a partner to share their lives with. Others’ image of their relationship matters to them. They are conservative and willing to commit. Venus in Capricorn people are attracted to serious, goal-oriented lovers. They are a little shy in matters of the heart, but they don’t want you to know it. If you like knowing where your relationship is headed, you’ll be mighty pleased with Venus in Capricorn. These people plan ahead in love, and, unlike Venus in Pisces, they will let you know exactly where they (and the relationship) are headed.
Pleasing Venus in Capricorn involves showing them you are practical and realistic. They want to impress you with the things they do. Appreciate their “saving for a rainy day” attitude, and be aware that they want to show you off in a quiet way.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I have a good job, I invest wisely. I will give you security. Marriage and family are important to me.”
Venus in Capricorn people are generally serious about their finances. They are talented at creating artistic structure and form. They value enduring connections, reliability, and faithfulness in their love and social relationships. They take expressing their feelings seriously, and they definitely take their time to warm up to others. They generally keep their “cool” in relationships. Some may want to be financially stable before marrying, as this is an expression of their commitment. However, they fear instability, and they usually have a deep fear of rejection and of not measuring up, which can also be a motivator behind a strong drive to provide for a partner. Living up to others’ expectations can also be a problem for some, and can prevent them from truly appreciating the moment.
While not the most spontaneous of partners, they are generally quite constant and true in love. They instinctively value effort and the long-term, and won’t run away from responsibility or difficulties. This is largely because their visions of love are not especially idealistic, and they accept realistic and practical concerns as a healthy part of any love relationship.
With money, Venus in Capricorn people are generally frugal and often save for a rainy day (they worry about stability and the future). They are rather discriminating in taste when it comes to entertainment, art, furnishings, music, and clothing. They are attracted to high quality, high status, and professional objects of art, furnishing, and clothing.
Venus in Aquarius
Venus in Aquarius people try to impress you with their open-minded, future-thinking spirit. They want you to see them as unique, rebellious, and a little provocative. They are attractive when they are acting a little aloof. They want you to acknowledge and appreciate that they don’t follow the beaten track in matters of the heart.
Venus in Aquarius men and women are attracted to unusual or unconventional relationships. They don’t want to follow all the rules, although they may make quite a few of their own. They can appear quite standoffish at times, and are threatened by restrictions of any kind. Emotional types may be put off by their detached manner in love. Venus in Aquarius wants you to love them for their intellect, and to admire their visions. They value lovers who are also good friends, and they avoid emotional displays or confrontations like the plague. Venus in Aquarius will delight in shocking you with their unusual ways and their forward-looking thinking.
Pleasing Venus in Aquarius involves letting them know just how interesting they are. Put up with their occasional need to act superior on an intellectual level — they are very proud of their unique ideas and visions. Dream along with them, and don’t fence them in. They need space and will happily return the favor, giving you lots of room to breathe and to be yourself.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I’m liberal. I’m not possessive. I’m looking for a friend in a lover. I’m unique. Let’s talk and have some fun.”
Venus in Aquarius people are attracted to unconventionality, independence, and freedom as themes in their social relationships. Experimental relationships are intriguing to them. Being friends as well as lovers is important to Venus in Aquarius.
They like to choose their terms when involved in a relationship, and this can be challenging for a partner, as their terms can be changeable! They may be reacting to a condition or situation of the moment, for example. With the exception of this quality, Venus in Aquarius people are some of the most unselfish people in love. They allow you freedom to be yourself, and are rarely clinging or controlling. They are easygoing in this manner because a partner can appeal to their sense of reason, and they always strive to be exceptionally fair and impartial. They are often attracted to art, furnishings, clothing, and music from ancient times as well as modern, abstract, and futuristic.
Venus in Pisces
Venus in Pisces people project themselves as dreamy, soft-hearted partners. Everything about the way they flirt promises a lovely time. Theirs is an elusive charm — they are sweetly playful, a little moody, and perhaps a little irregular. They appreciate romance and poetry, and they prefer to “feel out” both you and the relationship you share, so don’t expect too much planning ahead. Their sensitivity can be a little misleading at times. Yes, they are sensitive folk, but lovers may find it maddening that this sensitivity is not only directed at them, but towards all of mankind.
Venus in Pisces men and women want you to know that their love is unconditional. They are unimpressed by your status, and love and accept you for all that you are inside. They love the underdog and are attracted to wayward folks, or those in need of a little help. With their romantic view of the world, they can be unreasonably attracted to states of suffering and martyrdom, so they easily get into the role of saving someone, or being saved. Unlike Venus in Libra, which thrives on equality, Venus in Pisces is actually turned on by inequality! They can be rather confusing and hard to pin down as they feel their way through their relationships. As much as they may want to, they find it hard to commit. Many do end up committing, however, at least on the surface.
Pleasing Venus in Pisces involves enjoying tender moments and romantic times with them. You won’t always be able to count on them. In fact, you can be sure they will stretch the truth every once in a while. But remember they do this because they fear they might hurt you, and they can’t bear to cause you any heartache. Try to understand them, although that’s never an easy task considering the fact that they don’t always know themselves. And, truth is, some Venus in Pisces privately have a love affair going with the idea of being misunderstood. Try to put up with their apparent lack of direction in the relationship — they are so receptive and open to all possibilities that it is hard for them to commit to any one thing, idea, or even person. These intriguing partners will reward you with a love that is accepting and comes as close to unconditional as humans can get.
My Personal Ad Bio: “I will love you for you. I will accept you. Even if the rest of the world thinks you are unlovable, I will see you for what you really are.”
Pisces never sees the world in black-and-white terms. Rather, Pisces sees all the colors of the rainbow. With the goddess of love in Pisces, love is all-embracing, they are able to forgive and understand, they are seducible and seductive, and they show tremendous compassion to their partners. Venus in Pisces is tender and affectionate, although hard to reach nevertheless, as there is a longing for something that is hard to define and hard to satisfy. Borders and boundaries blur under Venus in Pisces. The shadow side of this position is allowing themselves to be victimized or deluded, as well as evasiveness.
Venus in Pisces people are attracted to situations of giving, martyrdom, and mercy. They want very much to forgive, allow, and give unselfishly. Because this is not always possible — they are only human after all! — there can be problems with seeing a lover or a relationship accurately and with resentments for being put upon or used.
In love, Venus in Pisces gives a lot, but not everything. Most important to remember is this: it’s a mistake to assume a Venus in Pisces person is weak, but it’s also a mistake to assume Pisces is strong. They are both. The message is: don’t push them beyond their limits, because although it might appear that they have none, they do draw the line at some point. Avoid taking advantage of their good nature and willingness to make sacrifices. They see their willingness to forgive and understand as a strength, and you should too.

In birth chart venus
the astrology of sex and love.
If it's your thing, read our exploration of the sign's sexual personalities.
Though the world of astrology is often a little controversial, some believe there’s a lot to learn about ourselves and others from exploring natal birth charts and sign placements. For many of us, sex is one of life’s most intriguing topics.
Astrologists often look to the planets and stars to gain insight about individual temperaments, sexual preferences and styles. The planet Venus, known as the mother of sex and love, is often astrology’s starting point for understanding sexual identities and relationships. Energy exchanges occur through sexual encounters, and astrologists believe that Venus’s position in a person’s natal chart can tell us how they behave in various aspects of sex.
We like to take things with a grain of salt, but if astrology is your thing, here’s our exploration of the sign’s sexual personalities.
Venus or Mars in Cancer: Cancer lovers are known for being sensitive and sweet in bed. They can be one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac, and they’re normally turned on by partners who are confident and open. That said, they won’t easily share their desires and fantasies until they can trust you. Cancer lovers want to be all yours, and their perfect scenario would mean spending all day in bed with their partner. Protective and emotional, Cancers are the most sentimental and romantic of all the signs.
Venus or Mars in Leo: For Leos, sex revolves around undivided attention and adoration. They’re most turned on by a doting partner and their strong sense of pride makes them want to be the best in bed. They will definitely take care of a partner, but they also have a natural inclination to take care of themselves first. Sometimes jealous, Leos usually want to impress their lovers with sexual prowess which makes them very open in bed. On an emotional level, their sexual fantasies come from a deeper desire for love and affection.
Venus or Mars in Virgo: For Virgo lovers, sex is a necessary part of health and general wellbeing. They use sexual expression to release everyday stress and tension. Sex is normally simple, sweet, and straightforward. Virgo’s also love doing small acts for their partners to show appreciation. Sometimes insecure, they tend to make up for it by paying attention to what you like. They focus on things that turn you on and strive to please. While they’re insatiably curious about sex, they often keep fantasies to themselves. Don’t let that fool you—they’re not afraid to explore.
Venus or Mars in Libra: These people love to please their partners, and they seek balance within their sexual relationships. Libra’s long to get things right, and they have a strong need for growth within sexual encounters. While they’re often givers in bed, they also expect their partners to give in return and equally. They’re quite provocative in a reserved way and they’re known for being natural-born charmers. When it comes to sex, Libras want the atmosphere and the mood to be on point. Think candle-lit rooms, sexy music and silky sheets.
Venus or Mars in Scorpio: Sexually speaking, Scorpios can be the most complex lovers. While they have an innate sense of intensity and emotion entangled in their sexual desires, they’re not always open in terms of expression. Some Scorpios need power, which makes them willing to do anything. Others express their controlling sensations by running away, becoming unavailable, and even abstaining from sex for long periods of time. Either way, they bring intensity and passion to bed. Scorpios think of sex as intimate, personal and erotic.
Venus or Mars in Sagittarius: These peoplethink of sex as a sport. They’re very direct with their desires and needs in bed and possess a refreshing childlike frankness. Sagittarian lovers like to have fun in bed, and laughing is a major turn-on. They can be a bit selfish and aren’t into big romantic gestures. For them, the best way to have sex is to simply just do it.
Venus or Mars in Capricorn: Straightforward and blunt when it comes to sex, Capricorns are often attracted to strong and powerful lovers who show authority on some level. They also enjoy secrecy and discretion and are normally private about their sexual encounters. Grounded by nature and the earth, they stick to a no-frills method of love-making. Generally content with simple consistency in sexual acts, they feel that variety and spontaneity are less important than security.
Venus or Mars in Aquarius: These water-bearers have a very take-it-or-leave-it attitude when it comes to sex. Aquarius lovers are not known for being warm and open, although they’re very enthusiastic about trying new things. In bed, they usually come off as effortlessly cool and experienced. And they can also become highly turned on when their partner isn’t—detachment can often cause them to want someone more.
Venus or Mars in Pisces: Open to many forms of sexual expression, Pisces lovers are normally willing to please. They’re highly romantic and emotional, but also a bit shy and withdrawn. They act almost like chameleons, and it’s sometimes difficult to pin down their thoughts and desires. While they can be very sensitive, they are also quick to forgive. They can come off as detached and spacey, but they can also be the most romantic lovers.
Venus or Mars in Taurus: Sex and romance involve all of the senses for this sign. Probably the most physical of sexual partners, touch is very important within their interactions. Not known for spontaneity, they’re very good at what they do. They like to live in the moment, in a natural and highly physical way. Not having sex is difficult for a Taurus, so they’re seemingly always paired up with a sexual partner. They’re known for having a high stamina, so sex is usually long-lasting and steady.
Venus or Mars in Aries: Aries folk love for their partners to give themselves fully. Sex can be spontaneous and often void of restriction. Some are addicted to games and love a good conquest, and they also have powerful desires. Aries lovers can be selfish in bed and quick to jump to the main act, without much foreplay. At the same time, they’re passionate, sincere and highly enthusiastic lovers. Hair touching and face caresses excite them, as their most potent erogenous zone lies in the head. They’re also up for adventure and feel confident in sexual expression.
Venus or Mars in Gemini:This sign is often turned on by talking and laughing in bed. They adore kissing, and oral pleasures are of great importance to Gemini lovers. Role-playing and extended foreplay are also things they greatly enjoy, as Geminis are usually all about having fun in bed. They’re enthusiastic, imaginative and curious about all different types of sexual expression, but they can also tend to overthink sometimes. Less driven by their erotic desires, Geminis normally react with logic and reason. They’re driven by intellect instead of emotion, which makes them question the “what ifs” involved in sexual interactions.
This Part Of Your Birth Chart Explains Why You Fell For Your Ex
Astrology is more than just your Sun sign — all the planets in astrology represent different parts of who you are. So while your regular zodiac sign (or Sun sign) speaks to the core of your spirit, and your Moon zodiac sign tells you about your private and emotional side, what your Venus sign represents is the way you love and value. This applies to the way you approach relationships and romance, show your love and affection, and find beauty and pleasure in life. And understanding your Venus sign in astrology is a great way to explore your romantic values and dig into your love life from a fresh cosmic perspective, so let's peep into this planet's luscious and luxurious realm.
The planet Venus is named for the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure, so it makes sense that it rules over these same areas in astrology, too. Because Venus is about value, it governs our relationship to money, aesthetics, and what we find luxurious. But perhaps more notoriously, our Venus signs tell us about our style of loving and romancing — how we flirt, show affection, experience sensual pleasure, fall in love, derive value from relationships, and more. Using Sun sign astrology to find out the romantic compatibility between you and your crush is fun, but learning about your Venus sign is a more effective way to cut straight to the heart of love.
If you want to calculate your Venus sign, you can use a free online Venus sign calculator or you can set up a time to chat with a professional astrologer, who can give you insight into your astrology chart on the whole. For most people, you'll only need to know your birth date and year in order to find out your Venus sign — but if you happen to be born on a day when Venus switched signs (which typically takes place about once a month), then you'll also need to have your exact birth time and location handy to determine whether you're one sign or another.
