What Your Venus Sign Can Teach You About Love
If you’ve been unlucky in love lately, maybe it’s time to blame the stars. We’re not talking about sun signs. In fact, we want to remind you not to let your sun sign be the end-all/be-all when it comes to relationships. Your Venus sign is actually a lot more relevant in that department. Even if bae's sun sign is not necessarily compatible with your sun sign, your Venus signs can make up for that.
Perhaps the last few relationships you’ve been in, your partner has not been compatible with your Venus sign. For example, if a Venus in Aries person dates a Venus in Aquarius person, it will likely end in D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R. At first, a Venus in Aries person’s directness and boldness will excite the Venus in Aquarius (plenty of us enjoy being chased, after all). But eventually, the Venus in Aquarius partner will start to feel suffocated, while the Venus in Aries will feel neglected and unloved.
This is why you NEED to know your Venus Sign. Seriously, this is what we should be asking potential dates and partners. Sun signs are so yesterday. Here’s a primer on how your Venus sign dictates your love life. Use this knowledge and go forth into the dating world armed with confidence.
Venus in Aries
If your Venus is in Aries, you are bold and direct and often the one to make the first move. You are a confident dater who’s not shy about approaching someone you find attractive and starting a conversation. You also handle rejection pretty well, because you know there are plenty of fish in the sea for you to swim after anyway. Venus in Aries people crave spontaneity, passion, and energy. They are natural flirts and many others are drawn to their confidence.

Venus in Taurus
If your Venus is in Taurus, you are a hopeless romantic. You love love for what it represents, and you never lose your hope in it. Unlike a Venus in Aries, you’re not the type to chase at all. Instead, others naturally gravitate toward you because of your grace, sensuality, and approachable nature. You’re also a very loyal person, but on the flip side, you can also be a little jealous and possessive.

Venus in Gemini
For a Venus in Gemini, it’s all about freedom. They hate to be tied down, which can become a point of contention in a monogamous, serious relationship. Venus in Gemini people also love variety. They are motivated by whatever is new and fresh, because their natural curiosity draws them to that. On the other hand, they are exciting, loving, and adventurous partners that are worth the wait.

Venus in Cancer
If your Venus is in Cancer, you most likely crave loyalty and security and a relationship that feels like home. You’re not going to be happy in any kind of frivolous or low-commitment situation. You need it ALL: strong commitment, beautiful romance, lots of PDA, words of affirmation, etc. You simply do not want to waste time in a relationship that doesn’t serve you what you crave, and you KNOW that you deserve all those things. Here’s your sign to never settle.

Venus in Leo
Love is everything to someone with a Venus in Leo. They are fans of grand gestures, hyper romantic situations, and lots of affection. As is typical with Leos, they love to be the center of attention, but also to make their partners the center of attention! There won’t be any dull moments with a Venus in Leo person, who will always make sure you’re both pampered and living your best (love) life.

Venus in Virgo
Venus in Virgo people will generally not make the first move, as they are very cautious and reserved (in the beginning). They like to take things slow and learn all the details about their partner. As you know, Virgos are generally known for being perfectionists, and that’s also true for a Venus in Virgo person. This can sometimes lead to friction, but, in essence, someone with Venus in Virgo is a very steadfast, practical, and considerate partner.

Venus in Libra
Venus in Libra people have a tendency to idealize love. They can be very romantic and need to achieve balance in all aspects of their relationship. A Venus in Libra partner will uphold fairness above all things, so don’t expect to give or take more than you receive. This Venus sign also appreciates beauty and pleasing aesthetics, which can sometimes make them view their relationship through rose-colored glasses. A romance with a Venus in Libra sign has the potential to be very dreamy.

Venus in Scorpio
Venus in Scorpio people are intense, but you probably already guessed that! Scorpio is known for its intensity and deeply passionate nature. It makes sense that someone with Venus in Scorpio would be the same way. With this type of partner, you can expect a lot of emotion and passion that keeps you on your toes. Venus in Scorpio people can also be rather possessive or jealous. No matter what, you'll always have excitement in your life if you date someone with their Venus in Scorpio.

Venus in Sagittarius
It's not always easy to get a Venus in Sagittarius to commit. They love freedom, but they also love to be close to their partner. It can be a bit of a contradiction to be with a Venus in Sagittarius. To make a relationship with a Venus in Sagittarius stick, you would actually need to give them plenty of space. However, if their feelings are true, they will always find their way back to you after they're done roaming and exploring.

Venus in Capricorn
Someone with a Venus in Capricorn is practical and cautious when it comes to love. They are not necessarily passionate people, but they do love deeply when they actually fall in love. They are devoted and steadfast, and will always be by your side when you need them. Venus in Capricorn people are also not the type to play games. They want to find THE ONE without all the drama and messiness that comes with dating and meeting people.

Venus in Aquarius
A Venus in Aquarius person is a rather tough nut to crack. They are averse to showing emotion, and it can sometimes feel like they don't like you (but in reality they have deep feelings for you). Venus in Aquarius people will certainly never wear their heart on their sleeve, and if they happen to be with an emotional person who demands more attention, the relationship will most likely not work out. A Venus in Aquarius needs someone who is content with simply giving them their freedom.
Your Best Matches: Venus in Libra, Gemini, Leo, or Aquarius
Venus in Pisces
Venus in Pisces people are idealistic and wear rose-colored glasses. They love the very idea of love, and can sometimes be blind to love's more prickly realities. A Venus in Pisces partner can be extremely sensitive, but also have a difficult time saying no. It can be tough to deal with a Venus in Pisces if you are not a hopeless romantic, but if you give them a chance, they can make you see love in a whole new light.
