it craves? Look to your Venus placement.

for humor. Through Venus, you find harmony in your partnerships. She rules your inner nature and how you value and appreciate
yourself. We appear attractive and attract others through her lens. This occurs because the way you resonate at a deep level

what we hold of value and what indulgences we spend our money on.
Venus in Aries
You know whom you like, and you want them right now! Love at first sight occurs
for you frequently. You are fiercely independent and although you can enter into relationship quickly, you want to maintain
your freedom & independence once you are partnered. No one tells you what to do if you can help it. You feel you have
a special destiny to fulfill in this life. And you do- you are actualizing your independence and sense of self. You are attracted
to people that offer you an adventure. You take the lead in romance, and if someone isn’t keeping your pace you may
decide to pursue him or her more forcefully or give up completely. You operate instinctively and often put your needs for
evolution before your partners. You oscillate between extremes of narcissism and losing yourself in your partner. When you
realize you’ve lost yourself, you will retreat until you feel independent again but these cycles can leave your partner
very confused. Reminder: In relationships, make sure to find someone that encourages your independence.
Venus in Aries people flirt by being up-front, direct, and even daring. They try to win you
over by expressing how enterprising and independent they are. Their style of expressing love can be maddeningly "me"-centered,
but the right person for them will find this approach charming. People get turned on by Venus in Aries' aura of innocent charm,
even when they are being childish and impatient.
Venus in Aries
men and women behave in a childlike, fun-loving manner in love. They are turned on by energy and activity. Turn-offs include
a relationship that is considered stuffy or too "mature", vagueness, and beating around the bush. In love, Venus
in Aries people are hopelessly addicted to the conquest. In order for a relationship to remain fresh and new for them, they
require plenty of stimulation.
Pleasing Venus in Aries involves
fueling their need for action. Be direct, open, and honest with them -- they won't much like game-playing or evasiveness,
unless it is in the complete spirit of fun. Feed their need for spontaneity, and appreciate their playfulness. Understand
their desire for the relationship to remain young and fresh. Aries likes to take the lead in love (even if their Sun Sign
is gentle Pisces) -- let them, at least most of the time. Indulge them their many whims, and understand that they
thrive on competition, even when they're competing with you!
Ad Bio: "I have a strong sense of adventure. I will win you over. I'm self-taught and self-sufficient."
Venus in Aries people don't necessarily take control but they do instinctively take the lead
in matters of the heart. They don't easily adapt to others' feelings and moods.
be demanding in love, addicted to the chase or the intense passions of the moment. Loves spontaneous expressions of affection
and sexuality. Very enthusiastic and attractive. Innocent charm. Attracts by being direct and not beating around the bush
- gets to the point. Hard to resist. Quick attractions.
money, Venus in Aries may be impulse buyers. They are attracted to new and innovative products, but would do well to wait
a few days before buying because the desire can pass quite quickly. Art that appeals to them is bold and active in tone.
Venus in Taurus
This is a strong placement since Venus rules Taurus. You are slow to make commitments
and it takes time to get to know you. You are self-reliant and are able to take care of yourself in ways other people envy.
You like the luxuries of life and are very sensual. You appreciate a partnership you can depend on. Creature comforts like
fine food, wine and surroundings go a long way to win your heart. You have a tendency to be possessive in love since you have
a hard time letting go of things that are important to you. In Aries, Venus learned about self and in Taurus you know who
you are and you now carry a deep sense of self-possession and presence. You have a tendency to have difficulty embracing other
peoples value systems since you feel so deeply rooted and connected to your own. Reminder: While it’s important to stabilize
in self it’s paramount to find out what motivates other people. This will help stretch your consciousness so you can
grow to your fullest potential.
Love for Venus in Taurus centers
on the physical world and creature comforts -- they revel in sensual surroundings. These people project themselves as solid
and comfortable. In fact, something about their manner promises they will be satisfying lovers and partners. They need a certain
measure of predictability and dependability in their relationships, even if their Sun is in the more spontaneous signs of
Aries or Gemini.
Venus in Taurus men and women can be possessive
in love, and they are threatened by fast-paced, high-energy situations in the context of relationships and love. These are
sensual partners who require lots of "hands-on" expressions of love. Their lovers may complain that Venus in Taurus
can get a little too comfortable and settled. It's true that they resist change in their relationships, but even when they
seem stuck in a groove, you can always reassure yourself by remembering that they are constant partners.
Pleasing Venus in Taurus involves emphasizing your loyalty, and their worth to you.
You may need to give in to them in love matters, because they won't readily give in to you! Get physical with them; do comfortable
things. Avoid pushing them in love -- give them plenty of time. You will probably need to cultivate patience if you are in
a relationship with Venus in Taurus. Remember to be simple and natural -- Taurus will appreciate it. Promise them a comfortable,

date consists of good food, fine wine, and cuddling up with each other at home."
Venus in Taurus people are very physical lovers, with a great appreciation for scents, sounds, feels,
and pleasing form. Can be very patient in love. Their charm is natural and earthy.
can be possessive in love and with objects. Venus in Taurus people are attracted to products of high quality and durability.
They can be good with their money, spending lavishly only on objects of beauty, long-lasting objects, and food. They are not
usually especially generous people and are typically quite practical and patient when it comes to saving and spending money.
Harmony and peace are important factors in the art and music they are attracted to. They abhor gawdy, cheap, tacky, or excessively
loud/bold art, clothing, and possessions.
Venus in Gemini
You are witty and intelligent and you appreciate the same in a partner. You
can hold a conversation on many diverse topics and you get turned on by a partner with whom you can share your thoughts. Relationships
are more mental than emotional and you may frequently wonder if someone more interesting is on the horizon. This can make
you appear fickle in love. You want to know that you have the freedom to come and go as you please or you feel smothered.
You have a tendency to talk around issues rather than address them directly. Your sharp mind and quick wit make you good company
in any situation. Gemini is an air sign, meaning you are prone to inner restlessness and never ending mental chatter. You
oscillate between cycles of expansion where you take information in indiscriminately and then cycles of contraction where
you withdraw. When you withdraw you then process and assimilate the information you gained during your expansion period. Reminder:
Choose a versatile partner who allows you the freedom you need so power struggles don't occur down the road.
Venus in Gemini people will try to win over the object of their affection with witty conversation,
displaying just how much they "know", and demonstrating their diverse interests. 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.
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!).
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
Gemini Personal Ad Bio: "I am fun-loving. My ideal date
consists of going to a cafe, taking in a movie, and talking about it."
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
You are sensitive in love and often put your partners needs before your own.
You like to cook for your partner or take care of their needs in some special way to show you care. While you love doing this,
you might feel slighted when your partner does not return this type of caring. You can be moody and hang onto hurts for longer
than is necessary. You value home, family and those you love. You treat your friends like family members. You carefully observe
those around you and find ways that you can quietly meet their needs. You're inundated by your inner emotional world frequently,
which can shift dramatically depending on your mood. This can leave you feeling vulnerable because your emotional nature is
always in flux. Deep down you want someone to take care of you and offer you stability, however when you learn to diminish
your projection of dependency on others for your emotional security you will be most fulfilled. In other words, take responsibility
for your own inner child and you will attract appropriate partners and feel less vulnerable in doing so. Reminder: Let others
know your needs instead of expecting them to silently know what you want.
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!
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.
Cancer 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."
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.
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
You are proud and know how to enjoy life. You are not short on charisma or
charm. You have an inner need to creatively express yourself and your true nature. Although you present as uber-confident
you aren't as confident as you appear under the surface. You want your love to include a heavy dose of romance otherwise you
aren't interested. You will give of yourself endlessly only wanting appreciation in return. You thrive on attention from those
around you and sometimes feel that others’ lives revolve around you. You are more sensitive than others know yet you
are often too proud to voice your hurts because your pride gets in the way. For you to stay happy you need loads of personal
attention from your significant other. You expect them to constantly notice how special you are and let you know. You have
a naturally creative soul but find you get blocked when your ego gets in the way. Because you want others to notice your specialties,
you have an innate ability to notice how they are special as well. This makes people feel wonderful basking in your warmth.
In relationships you must learn to give without expecting anything in return. Your sense of self doesn't need to be so dependent
on outside accolades. Reminder: Find an outwardly loving mate and keep your pride in check.
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 attention from the opposite sex. Be prepared for their
displays: they will tell you about any advances members of the opposite sex make 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.
Leo Personal Ad Bio: "I'm warm-hearted
and fun. I'm funny, and experienced. Let me show you a good time."
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
You are dedicated, hard working and practical. You have a humility about you
that others find endearing. You're happy to do tasks for the one you love to show them you care. Doing the shopping, taking
care of household chores and cooking dinner are all more admirable to you than flowers and all things showy. No detail is
too small to pass you by and you offer seemingly helpful suggestions sometimes when others wish you wouldn't. You do this
as a way to show you care. You tend to be overly critical of yourself and others. This is because you carry around guilt from
previous lifetimes where your ego got in your way. You feel inwardly quite alone and you may carry some level of guilt from
previous sexual encounters that you view as dirty. You can be picky about finding a mate and may get hung up on the details
instead of finding a person that is an overall good fit. Boastful, ostentatious people are a huge turn off to you. The way
out of your inner guilt crisis is to develop a relationship with a higher power or universal spirit that teaches you true
forgiveness. As with any forgiveness, you must start with yourself first, dear Virgo. Reminder: Don't beat yourself up so
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.
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.
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.
Virgo 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.
You are polite, kind and naturally dedicated to making your relationship work
harmoniously. You're a great listener; you're considerate and pleasurable to be around. You have an appreciation for aesthetics
and need to surround yourself with beautiful things. You may have difficulty asking for your own needs to be met because you
are so focused on your partner. You are sensitive to the environment you live in. Having a partner is an important need for
you and in many ways you won't feel fulfilled unless this need is met. This is because you are actually learning who you are
by being in relationship with another person. You are an air sign, so sharing your ideas and beliefs with someone is especially
important. You lean towards idealizing your partner and have a tendency to lose yourself in them. You can become like a chameleon
and develop an inner confusion about who you really are, then become quite co-dependent on your partner. Even so, you strive
for a sense of equality with those you partner with. Reminder: Put yourself first more than feels comfortable. Until you are
happy you can't help others to your highest capacity.
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.
Libra 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."
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.
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
You are interested in deep and intense relationships. Nothing less will do
in matters of the heart. You feel an immediate spark with a potential partner or you feel nothing at all. When you feel connected
with a person, they have your complete and undivided attention. The best match for you will be one who can meet your level
of intensity and depth. You view sex as a deep, near religious experience in which you bond to the soul of your partner. You
can be self-protective and covertly manipulate situations to your own liking. You are fiercely loyal and you can become jealous
and possessive of your partner. You're driven by a desire to deeply learn about yourself. Where others are satisfied with
a superficial knowing, you will go to the depths for self knowledge. You might even test your partner in the process to make
sure they are worthy. What drives this is a curiosity about the origin of your emotional nature. You have x-ray vision when
it comes to lies and you are able to see through shallow people without even trying. For this ability, many envy you, or are
scared by you. Sometimes you may want to be the secret holder more than you want to share your own secrets. Reminder: For
an equal partnership you have to be willing to share of yourself completely. That includes trusting someone with your secrets,
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.
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.
Scorpio 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 roller coaster 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,
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.
You are charming, outgoing, flirty and fun. You crave adventures of all kinds.
You naturally possess an intuitive belief system and feel connected to the larger whole. You always want to be growing, learning
and expanding which makes you naturally restless. You are idealistic, love to share your opinions and discuss things like
philosophy and travel. You have a gift to be carefree and serious both at the same time. Your ability to see humor in situations
is unparalleled. You don't mince words and this bare-boned honesty combined with your humor can have a healing effect on others
who take themselves too seriously. You can be hard to pin down because you enjoy your freedom so much. When the going gets
tough you may want to run away. Any attempt to squelch your freedom sends you into a cold sweat. Feeling like you need to
meet other peoples’ expectations makes you feel trapped as well, so your partner best give you a long leash. Because
you can be a commitment phoebe, you tend to look around the corner for what better shiny partner is coming next. Be careful
not to get on a soapbox about things you believe in. Just because it holds true for you doesn't mean other people share your
beliefs. Step outside your personal truth to really listen to what your partner is saying otherwise you'll fall into the trap
of needing to be right all the time. Reminder: Find a partner who appreciates your need for freedom and doesn't hold you back.
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

clumsiness with you and your feelings, and avoid cornering them or forcing them to commit.

Venus in Capricorn
You are dependable, loyal and faithful. Security is important to you and you
tend to be quite practical when it comes to partnership. You know exactly what you want, no one would call you fickle in matters
of the heart. When you are young you may find it’s easier to connect with adults and you may partner with someone older
than your own age. In romance you keep your commitments, because duty and love are closely related. You have exquisite taste
and have a keen eye for quality. Your love for beauty often includes an appreciation for architecture. You are a sensual earth
sign, but you don't like outward displays of affection. You need to feel safe before your true sensuality is released. You
can be reserved about sharing your feelings with your partner to the point you seem cold and calculating. This isn't your
true nature, but you tend to keep your feelings close to your chest until you are sure you won't be vulnerable. Once your
partner makes you feel safe, your childlike, playful tendencies will break through your surface veneer of stoicism. You often
hold your stress in your physical body in a way that may make you prone to tension headaches or other bodily pain. Make sure
you allow space in your life for bodywork or massage to soften the coat of armor your back can turn into. Reminder: Learning
to heal your inner child wounds will allow your heart to soften and your true joy for life will be unleashed.
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.
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-gaga 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 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.

"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
To be your lover, a person must be your friend first. There is no way around
this. You are open minded, forward thinking and a humanitarian. You inherently feel different from other people and often
are rebelling against the norms of society. Partners might complain that you have a tendency to be cool and aloof when it
comes to love. This is because of your tendency to be a detached observer noticing the behaviors of those around you. You
enjoy friendships with a variety of people, often of all ages and different walks of life. You can easily turn a lover into
a friend in a way that most of us can't imagine. The fastest way out of a relationship with you is for your partner to act
possessive, jealous and start asking you how you feel about them frequently. Because you are an air sign you resonate in the
realm of thoughts and ideas rather than emotions. This aversion to feelings may make you seem insensitive. Just because you
are logical and rational doesn't mean you get to avoid validating others feelings. Your best bet is to choose a partner who
is independent, intelligent and who doesn't get jealous easily. Reminder: You feel like an outsider sometimes, but this is
your own projection. Don't let that prevent you from connecting with others on a deep level.
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.
Aquarius 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.
You have a dreamy, romantic nature and tend to be idealistic when it comes to
love. You offer people a love that is unconditional and sometimes you find wounded birds that you want to heal. You are kind
and considerate and give of yourself completely when you are partnered. Sometimes you give so much that your kind nature can
be taken advantage of. You have a creative imagination and are a lover of art and music. You can intuitively tap into what
your partner needs. At times this can be your downfall because you lose sight of your own needs and who you are when you get
lost in the needs of your partner. Your idealism can lead you to believe that your mate is perfect. Later when you see their
flaws you can feel disillusioned. The symbol for Pisces is two fish moving in opposite directions. Often a Venus in Pisces
person will seem pulled in two directions at the same time and therefore get nowhere fast. Their loving acceptance of others
is unparalleled. No one seems to accept others with all their flaws like you can, and that makes you heartbreakingly loveable.
Reminder: When merging with another person in relationship, remember yourself. Don't be afraid to set boundaries.
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.
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.
