Venus says “I love + harmonize.”
VENUS IN ARIES
Venus in Aries is about loving and harmonizing through the Aries’ energetic field. The person with their Venus in Aries may express their personal love with fast energy: flirting with anyone they feel a “spark” with, appearing quite direct, assertive, and/or aggressive with affections, moving quickly into and/or out of a relationship, etc. Venus in Aries is a very self-centered energy; however, it is not necessarily narcissistic. There is a strong connection with action and “fireworks” for the Venus in Aries individual, and how they go about finding that connection in another person is heavily dependent on many other parts to their Being. Regardless, the person with their Venus in Aries may easily become bored when things are not moving along at the pace they feel accustomed to with regards to love, beauty, and harmony.
VENUS IN TAURUS
The Venus in Taurus native will most likely come across as highly dependable. Since Venus rules Taurus (and Libra), this energy generally manifests both ways: they seek harmonization with a partner who is also highly dependable. The need for security, comfort, and sensual pleasure of all kinds becomes highlighted for the Venus in Taurus individual. Anything that links with ideas and beliefs and values about “worth” come into play for this type of energetic field. The Venus in Taurus person will most likely come across as highly affectionate – especially noticeable with touching, hugging, kissing, etc. Again, this love energy is focused on comfort and sensual pleasure. It is a bonding and attachment type of energy – make sure you give back!
VENUS IN GEMINI
The Venus in Gemini native expresses love through the intellect and through communication in general. These are the writers, the poets, the musicians…all of which use their hands and their mind to convey messages of love and harmony. These types like to talk…and talk and talk and talk! Some may consider the Venus in Gemini individual as “two-faced” or a “tease” of some kind; however, the energy is truly centered on harmonizing through the intellect, the mind and communication. Banter, wittiness, a strength in knowledge on some level…all of these may come into play for the Venus in Gemini native. Overall, these folks may appear to be more “surface” to some extent, given their need for variety. In other words, this type of love energy may not want to dive into heavy or deeper conversations without other natural indicators (which can be seen in the natal chart).
VENUS IN CANCER
The Venus in Cancer native may express love in a stereotypical “motherly” way. They are nurturing, protective, sensitive and caring in their love nature(s). Sometimes this energy appears to get out of balance and interactions can feel smothering or overbearing; still, the underlying energy is about love and harmony with whatever is going on. Those individuals with their Venus in Cancer seek to find a sense of reliability, comfort, and stability in their interactions as if everything were in a womb (or a shell: think Crab qualities). They love and harmonize with an ultimate desire for balance: snuggle up with this energy and all could be good!
VENUS IN LEO
The Venus in Leo native may express love in a number of ways, but the heart is absolutely involved (Leo’s physical manifestation in the body = the heart/spine). Leo is about the heart, courage, the will, drive, pride, and so much more. When Venus shows up in Leo for any individual, these keywords may come into play – and so may the keyword “play” itself! The Venus in Leo individual may appear to be quite childlike, exuberant, dramatic or zealous, magnanimous and unique all at once. They may tend to express love with a lot of romance and a lot of loyalty too. In other words, a theatrical flair with a dash of lighthearted fun tends to depict what this energy is about. You’re going to get a lot of attention from a Venus in Leo native…reciprocating is key! That, to them, is harmony.
VENUS IN VIRGO
The Venus in Virgo native will likely express their love through subtle details with a focus on health and service. These individuals may seem to criticize or nag a bit with their affections – in a lighthearted way. They play off of the previous sign’s energies, and they extend into the next sign’s energies as well (just as each sign does to some extent). So, the Venus in Virgo native may take parts of the playfulness in Leo energy and couple it with the balance-seeking needs of Libra. Their “perfectionist” attitudes really hold insecurities underneath, and they love best when those sentiments are expressed and understood with all parties involved. With Venus in Virgo, all one has to remember is it is the little things that count!
VENUS IN LIBRA
The Venus in Libra native is at home! While Venus rules Taurus as well, the Venus in Libra individual will extend Venusian energy beyond what Taurus represents (beauty, stability, sensual pleasures, etc.). This individual may tend to add to Taurus’ energy and place an emphasis on relationships in general. In other words, the beauty, the stability, the harmony, the love, the sensuality, and more – all of these things are fully expressed and understood better with and through an Other. The Venus in Libra native thrives on relationship, and particularly harmonious ones. However, even when not in “harmony,” the Venus in Libra native will strive for that. Fairness, equality, and justice all play key roles in relating for the Venus in Libra individual. Essentially, this type of energy is about sharing and honesty as those things are directly linked to the concepts of love and harmony for them!
venuS IN SCORPIO
The Venus in Scorpio native is intense with an all-or-nothing energy. In fact, quite often, the energy is so heavily-held that it can feel controlling, possessive and/or obsessive. However, and underneath it all, there is truly the desire to bond and connect deeply, intimately, sexually, and with a strong sense of loyalty and commitment attached as well. These are dedicated souls in what they feel “love” is. As an opposite sign to Taurus, the individual with Venus in Scorpio may appear to be (and/or actually be) the jealous type. Their apparent jealousy may stem from much of what is already described here, but in general, Venus in Scorpio acts as a sort of “dark side” to love. The “dark” is not intended to be negative; instead, it is best understood as a strong, instinctive desire to unionize with an Other. When they love themselves fully first (as it is with any Being), the jealousy for another’s heart energy transforms itself. Regardless, the Venus in Scorpio native is a deep, contemplative, and emotionally-charged Being! Embrace them.
VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS
The Venus in Sagittarius native is a gypsy lover! The energy of Sagittarius blends with the Venusian qualities in such a way that these individuals tend to come off as “non-committal.” What is desired by these folks is a sense of expansiveness – whether literal or figurative (outer travel or inner travel, for example). Their love is expressed through open-mindedness, joviality and (paradoxically) some seriousness, bluntness, etc. These are the souls that love with a breath of fresh air, so to speak. The Venus in Sagittarius native wants to explore and expand everything it comes into contact with. Connected with Pisces in a way, these individuals are in love with life and express their sentiments with or without any Other!
VENUS IN CAPRICORN
The Venus in Capricorn native is a cautious and responsible lover. They may be traditional romantics at heart, but they may express their love slowly, deliberately, and with an eye towards the future. They are truly committed types, and they are best in harmony with those that relate to their dependable nature. An individual with Venus in Capricorn may not be the most spontaneous of all individuals when it comes to matters of the heart, but they are rock solid partners!
VENUS IN AQUARIUS
The Venus in Aquarius native is the detached, aloof, and rebellious type. The person with their Venus in Aquarius may express their personal love in an unconventional or eccentric manner. They loathe rules, and so any sort of traditional relationship may bore them fairly quickly. Venus in Aquarius wants a friend in their partner, and they want a friend who they can truly rely on to create space for their intellect. There is a strong connection with progressive, innovative, and forward-thinking energy for these folks, so space for that and, truly, space in general works best for these natives. Harmony for Venus in Aquarius is in the love of uniqueness and individuality!
VENUS IN PISCES
The Venus in Pisces native is the sensitive dreamer type. The person with their Venus in Pisces may express their personal love as, paradoxically, transpersonal love. These are the unconditional lovers, and they tend to share their love with all of the world! They aren’t real planners; they would rather go-with-the-flow and see how things progress in any and all interactions. For this reason, they are not necessarily oriented towards commitment. Those that do commit, though, generally find themselves with someone who understands their soft-hearted, romantic, and somewhat unreliable nature.
