Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus in Libra is a placement that feel super natural. Libra is one of the rulers of Venus; both are about beauty, harmony, relationships, and all things aesthetically pleasing.

Generally, Venus shows how we act when it comes to money, our style, how we enjoy ourselves, our values, and how we attract others and behave in relationships.

Venus In Libra Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Libra shows up.

Money and Style:

Venus in Libra means that you probably don’t focus on money a lot. If you do, this will be because of other placements n your chart. Venus in Libra cares more about balance than about accumulating wealth.

For example, someone with Venus in Libra and Mars in Leo might care about money quite a bit, but this is because of their Mars sign rather than Venus.

Whether you dress fashionably or not, something about the way you appear feels put-together and non-threatening. You have your own unique sense of style that you never have to question.

In the area of the house that Venus in Libra is in, you’re elegant and graceful. You may even be charming. You know how to do things well without going overboard.

Anything tacky or overdone will be abhorrent to you. Grace is important in all things. You’re good at putting people at ease and your style probably reflects this.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy spending time with other people. Social interactions and stimulating conversations make you happy.

You may also enjoy art, music, poetry, writing, or culture. You have a keen mind and want to use it in some way. This can vary from person to person with Venus in Libra, but you usually need some interesting outlet or way to express yourself.

For example, one person with Venus in Libra might be into punk rock and participate in a band. Yet another may love learning, especially philosophy, and focus on a lot of reading and writing.

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy anything that feels harmonious and pleasant. In general, you don’t like discord.

You also like to please people. This will be especially evident in the area of the house that your Venus in Libra is in. It can make you happy to please others, especially the people you care about most.

Values:

You value being around other people. As a Venus in Libra person, you probably care a lot about your partnerships and relationships.

Because of this, you may go to great lengths to avoid fights. Peace is extremely important to you and is one of your core values. You’re good at balancing things in a group; you’re the person to notice when one member is unhappy.

You also care about fairness in all things, especially friendships and romance. Sometimes, this can be a bit at odds with your need for peace. Depending on the situation, you will either acquiesce to avoid fighting, or you will stand up for your beliefs to get justice.

These values will be especially evident in the house that your Venus is in.

Attraction:

With Venus in Libra, you attract others by appearing intelligent, well-mannered, and put-together in appearance. You’re also pretty witty and mentally sharp.

You have an interesting mind, but you know how to use your wit in a social way. Unlike other intellectual astrology signs, you aren’t removed from society. People are attracted to your keen sense of intellect. Your intellect is quite charming.

When you want to impress someone else, you will try to turn on the charm. You use a mix of kindness and intellect that’s very subtle. No one with Venus in Libra will want to be the loudest person in the room; you just want to be the most poised and interesting.

Sometimes, you may be a bit disingenuous when you’re flirting because you want to be liked. This can even happen in your platonic relationships.

With Venus in Libra, you’re good at “mirroring” other people and showing them what they want to see. You can easily conform to many situations, but this drains you because you must hide your true self. It also makes it difficult for other people to really get to know you.

You’re attracted to people who are aesthetically agreeable and nice. You don’t like anyone too aggressive, abrasive, or extreme. Anything pleasing is exactly what you want.

Romance, such as candles or flowers, may be important to you, but you also value good conversation and shared activities. You need a mental connection to really be into someone.

When you do meet someone you like, you’re all in right away. With Venus in Libra, you don’t like to be alone.

Relationships/Sex:

When you’re in a relationship as a Venus in Libra, you simply want fairness. You will treat the other person how you want to be treated. 

Sometimes, you can go overboard with your emphasis on fairness. Be careful that you don’t keep score. Try to let reciprocation come a bit more naturally.

You might get upset if you feel that you put a lot of effort into pleasing your partner and don’t get an equal amount of effort returned. Big blowouts aren’t your style (although this is influenced by your Mars) so you quietly build up resentment. Sometimes, this comes out sideways in a passive-aggressive manner to “settle the score.”

Venus in Libra means that you really want your relationships to work. You may have a fear of being alone, so you might gloss over the bad issues. You turn yourself into a martyr, but then feel turned off and emotionally distanced from your partner.

Because you aim to please in general, you might attract bullies. This can be in a romantic manner or platonically.

With Venus in Libra, you have a very polished manner in love. You avoid aggression and overly-emotional displays. This can sometimes make your partners feel like you’re not invested, but you show your commitment through actions. It’s easy for you to go overboard trying to please your partner in many small ways.

When it comes to communication, you always want tact. Anything too uncouth or abrasive will turn you off. The best style of communication for you is fair and balanced without talks too much emotion.

Sexually, you also enjoy the finer things. You might like the whole act to be beautiful rather than aggressive or primal. In fact, you probably don’t enjoy anything super messy, although this will depend a lot on your Mars placement.

Intellectual simulation is what gets you going initially. You simply must have a good mental bond with your partner in order to feel sexual. A little romance never hurts, too!

Generally with Venus in Libra, you treat your partners how you want to be treated. If you get this reciprocation back, then you’re happy as a clam. Problems only arise when you feel that you’re being treated unfairly but don’t stick up for yourself.

Venus In Libra: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive qualities as well as difficult traits. No one individual will have all of these attributes because each Venus placement is unique depending on the house and aspects. These are qualities that these folks can have, but you’ll have to look to the individual to see what fits.

Best:

  • Cogenial
  • Peaceful
  • Affectionate
  • Romantic
  • Poised
  • Refined
  • Intellectual
  • Social
  • Balanced
  • Harmonious
  • Diplomatic
  • Fair

Worst:

  • Non-Confrontational

  • People-Pleasers

Venus In Libra: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Libra (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Libra. These Libran qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Libra Man

The Venus in Libra man is charming and charismatic when he wants to be. He may not always feel that he’s the most important person in the room, but he has a witty, intellectual appeal that is quiet yet strong.

He is attracted to beauty, grace, and to his “ideal woman.” Sometimes, this man might create an image of his ideal woman in his mind. He will be disappointed when he finds that she doesn’t actually exist.

Alternatively, when this man meets someone he may “beef up” her qualities in his mind. Again, he will be let down when he figures out that the woman in reality is much different than the picture in his head.

He might also get into relationships that are shallow, or he may attract superficial women. He could create an intellectual personality for his partner in his head because he likes the physical look of the woman in front of him.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man has a secret desire to be part of the “it” couple. This doesn’t always work out for him, but it can be a motivation for entering into a relationship.

The Venus in Libra man won’t be attracted to the most brash woman in the room. Coarseness, crudeness, and loudness are big turn-offs for him. 

Instead, he will look for someone smart and balanced. Although he is definitely attracted to looks (like any Libra placement), he also loves understated charm and simple but clean beauty. He actually wants his partner to feel beautiful rather than just appear like a trophy.

He is attracted to people who makes him feel balanced, romantically or platonically. When he feels off-kilter around someone, he will probably want to get away from them.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra man looks for balance. He will work really hard to please someone he loves, but he also wants to be treated fairly.  The Venus in Libra man will grow unhappy over time if he believes that he is giving too much. He will build up resentment towards his partner. 

This man can have some abandonment issues and a secret desire to complete himself through a relationship. This probably won’t be obvious on a conscious level, but this is usually why he must be in a relationship. He will give quite a bit in order to keep a relationship, yet he becomes unhappy in the long run.

The Venus in Libra man wants his relationships to be easy and peaceful. He has a tendency to lie in order to keep the peace.

This is when his values conflict. He wants peace, but he also wants fairness and balance. Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man just can’t figure out how to have both in a partnership.

The Venus in Libra man is really sensitive to the needs of his partner. He is a pleaser and can be a wonderful person to be in a relationship with. However, his partners need to be careful to notice if he is avoiding the truth or not speaking up when he needs something.

He has trouble telling the hard truths because he doesn’t want to upset anyone or to fight. Over time, this can cause serious problems. He will build up resentment towards his partner until he fights back in passive-aggressive ways or leaves the relationship altogether.

In general, the Venus in Libra man is a really lovely individual. He is intellectual, creative, and interesting. He’s a true gentleman – he would never leave someone in trouble and has a caring heart.

The goal for the Venus in Libra man is to learn to stick up for himself in assertive, constructive ways before resentment builds up within him.

Venus In Libra Woman

The Venus in Libra woman is super perceptive. She’s sensitive to the needs of others, to what others want to her, and to the sense of give and take in a relationship.

She works very hard to keep things balanced and to be what others want. She might adapt her personality to suit the nature of the people she’s with.

In fact, the Venus in Libra woman can be something of a chameleon. She’s very good at changing the way she talks, moves, and acts in order to make other people feel comfortable.

Secretly, the Venus in Libra woman wants to be liked. It’s extremely difficult and upsetting for her when someone actively dislikes her. She will feel afraid and alone.

When she’s just getting to know a potential partner, she is very graceful and intellectual. She’s good at noticing what her partner likes about her and adapting to fit the situation.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra woman is very skilled at smoothing ruffled feathers. She is definitely the ideal woman to keep the peace.

Ultimately, she is afraid of losing her partner and being alone. The Venus in Libra woman needs a relationship more than any other Venus placement. She feels defective or even useless without a partner.

However, she treats her partner as she would like to treated. She supports her partner’s individuality and notices the small things about them. The Venus in Libra woman just wants the same treatment in return. She wants to be noticed, too. It can be extremely hurtful for her to be ignored; she will be crushed if her partner doesn’t reciprocate her efforts.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra woman will give her personal power away in order to stay in a relationship. When she gives up a vital piece of herself, she is left feeling powerless and empty. If something does go wrong with a partner, she may feel that she’ll never be whole again.

She wants to be admired for her intelligence and inner value. The Venus in Libra woman doesn’t want to be treated like a trophy, even though she does value aesthetically pleasing beauty. Ultimately, she wants her partner to notice what’s inside of her.

Sexually, the Venus in Libra woman might be more excited by fantasy and romance than by actual sex. She easily detaches from the more realistic elements of lovemaking and focuses on the ideal, but she is disappointed in real life when things are messy or dirty.

Venus In The Houses

Venus In The Houses

Even though we all research our Venus signs first, Venus in the houses is actually pretty important.

Your Venus sign will show the qualities that you exhibit, but the house that your Venus is in will indicate where you tend to show these qualities.

For example, with Venus in the 10th house, you tend to show your most Venusian qualities at work or in public, while Venus in the 4th house means that you show these qualities most at home or in private.

How To Read Venus In The Houses

You should start with your Venus sign when you’re looking into your placement. However, the house will be important, too.

You Venus sign shows the qualities that you exhibit, but the house shows where these qualities will appear most often.

With Venus in the 1st house, you can also have a strong need to be liked by others. You tend to give up your personal power during times of stress. You will want to focus on self-love in order to reclaim your power and make your own decisions.

At worst, you can actually start to become narcissistic because of your need to be liked by others. However, this will need other elements and placements in the chart to support narcissism. 

You always want to avoid trouble. When challenged you may “play dumb” or react passive-aggressively. Venus in the 1st house always avoids outright confrontation.

In love, you seek all things classically romantic, including beauty, sensitivity, and softness. You’re probably aesthetically pleasing in some way and you also like to be surrounded by nice-looking people and things.

Venus In The 2nd House

If you have Venus in the 2nd house, you value tangible expressions of love. Actions mean much more to you than words.

In fact, you may feel like you always have to give something up to be with your partner. It’s hard for you to find love without sacrifice.

With Venus in the 12th house, it’s important for you to develop a sense of self worth and boundaries. Venus is all about love, but it can also represent self love.

You have the opportunity to discover self love through Venus in the 12th house instead of looking for it from others. Work on Picean, 12th house qualities such as self-care, shadow work, and meditation to build your confidence and heal your inner child.

Venus In Cancer In The Natal Chart

Venus In Cancer In The Natal Chart

Venus in Cancer is a sensitive and empathetic placement. If you have Venus in Cancer, you will find that your emotions are an integral part of how you love.

Any Cancer placement is really emotionally deep and sensitive; Venus in Cancer is no different. 

Although Venus in Cancer men and women are distinctive from each other, they both have a delicate vibe that others simply sense.

Venus In Cancer Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Cancer shows up.

Money and Style:

With Venus in Cancer, you are very concerned with stability. You will take calculated risks with money but are generally shrewd. 

Even though you might not be focused on earning a ton of money with Venus in Cancer (unless you have other aspects of your chart to support this), you are typically careful about how much you spend.

You lead from the heart with Venus in Cancer, even when it comes to money or finances.

Style-wise, a Venus in Cancer person will either dress slightly sensitive and dreamy (maybe even artistic), or will dress edgy and tough to hide their sensitive interior in an attempt to protect themselves.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Cancer, you are attracted to anything emotional. You may enjoy artwork, movies, angsty songs, etc.

As long as something invokes an emotion, you will probably be interested. You may like all things romantic or slightly sad, too.

With Venus in Cancer, you probably aren’t the biggest party animal unless you have other placements that indicate this. You’re very tied to people you love and your pleasure will involve spending time with those close to your or expressing yourself in some way.

Values:

With Venus in Cancer, you value friendship and family. People are the most important to you.

Typically, you’re fond of children and the elderly, especially if you’re related to them.

You’re nurturing and creative with Venus in Cancer. You love to create traditions and buy others thoughtful gifts to signify your emotions.

You value caring for others. In some situations, you may even wish to become a caretaker. Emotional empathy is extremely important to you.

Above all, you value emotional security for yourself and others. With Venus in Cancer you tend to play it safe and don’t want any sort of risk.

Attraction:

The typical Venus in Cancer is very cautious when they first like someone. They typically aren’t one to show their attraction right away.

If you have Venus in Cancer, you only want love with emotional involvement, but you have to take it slowly and cautiously. You have a hard, outer shell at first, like a crab.

You might actually come off as a bit aloof or removed, but you’re really just protecting yourself.

Most people with Venus in Cancer are attracted to potential partners who have a bit of softness in them, too. With Venus in Cancer, you can sense this gentle energy in others before they have even done anything to show it.

Relationships/Sex:

In a relationship, a Venus in Cancer person is super attached once they fall in love. With Venus in Cancer, you can even get too attached to the past and forget to enjoy the present with your loved one.

You yearn for sensitivity and deep intimacy in love. Sometimes with Venus in Cancer, you can have boundary issues with significant others.

You’re afraid of getting hurt but you also want to feel close to your partner. You need to get to know someone and develop trust yet you also fall in love quickly.

In a relationship, you’re very tuned into the unspoken thoughts of your partner. You need security, nurture, and comfort, but you give this all back in spades.

You show your love by caring and noticing the feelings of your partner. However, you will sometimes be the only one doing this. If you don’t feel that the emotional attention is being returned then you can start to become resentful, although you probably won’t tell your partner what’s bothering you.

When you feel rejected, you retreat into your crab shell. With Venus in Cancer, it can take you a while to come back out.

You can also be easily offended or feel unloved with Venus in Cancer. Your partners might feel that they need to walk on eggshells.

If you still feel resentment towards your partner from anything they have done, you probably won’t say anything. Your partner will need to sense what’s going on.

You probably aren’t super straightforward with your feelings; your partners might have to guess what’s going on if they feel that something is off. However, you are equally as observant towards your partner’s emotions.

With friends, you’re loyal and like to stay in touch. You’re very good at making your friends feel nurtured and cared for, but you want them to reciprocate this affection.

With Venus in Cancer, you hold on to hurt feelings and might even act passive-aggressive or revengeful towards someone who has hurt you.

If there is trauma, a Venus in Cancer individual might have a lot of casual flings because they are looking for love in the wrong places. Otherwise, they like to be in relationships.

In relationships, you will need lots of snuggling and sentimental talks with Venus in Cancer. More emotion is always better.

Venus In Cancer: Best & Worst Qualities

Every placement has positive and difficult qualities. Sometimes, a quality that you feel is positive can also be difficult. Neither can exist without the other.

Venus in Cancer is sentimental and caring but can be melodramatic and insecure due to their extreme sensitivity.

These are some of the most common good and difficult qualities. Keep in mind that you might not have all of these qualities, but you will probably see a good number show up, especially in the area of the house that your Venus is in.

Best:

  • Sensitive
  • Caring
  • Nurturing
  • Cautious

Venus In Cancer: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Cancer below and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman or someone with feminine energy, Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Cancer. These Leo qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man or someone with masculine energy, Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Cancer Man

The Venus in Cancer man is attracted to everything feminine about women. He can theoretically be interested in a woman with any type of look, but he tends to notice feminine attributes like long hair, simple and sweet clothing, soft summer dresses, and aura of innocence, etc.

The Venus in Cancer man is also attracted to someone who shows their emotions and is able to be vulnerable. He wants someone who sees him emotionally and appreciates him for who he is.

This man will usually pick women who are unlikely to reject him. Any type of rejection is extra hurtful to a Venus in Cancer man.

He will have a hard time letting go of a relationship, even if the partnership goes badly. 

The Venus in Cancer man is romantic and loving. He is protective, but at his worst, he can also be jealous or possessive.

This man needs an intuitive connection with his lover; he wants both partners to be able to sense each others’ feelings.

The Venus in Cancer man desires someone he can take care of. He loves to provide for his partner.

Sensitivity is big for the Cancer man, even if he doesn’t show it. He may hide behind the “crab” shell because he has such a gentle internal world.

It can take the Venus in Cancer man a while to open up to his partner. He is really protective of his feelings and needs to be sure he can trust someone. 

Typically, the Venus in Cancer man will be like a parent to his family and friends. He is the caretaker of the group. He’s very protective of those he loves.

He may try to be the hero for everyone, not for the glory, but because he feels the need to save everyone.

Sometimes, the Venus in Cancer man can end up with emotionally unstable partners because he attracts people who he needs to “mother.” He may do this completely unconsciously, but the end result is a lot of emotional turmoil.

Ideally, the Venus in Cancer man will feel needed but not suffocated. He wants a partner who lets him take care of them but who doesn’t need a full-on surrogate parent.

Venus In Cancer Woman

When the Venus in Cancer woman first meets someone, she will remember the small details about them that strike a chord with her emotionally.

This woman comes off as sweet and vulnerable when she’s first flirting. She’s very responsive to others’ emotions, but she probably won’t make the first move.

She may even have a nurturing or mothering energy. She feels like a safe haven to those she meets.

The Venus in Cancer woman is typically approached by potential partners who like her quiet, shy, emotional innocence. She gives off a soft and sweet energy.

Even if other parts of her chart make her more abrupt, a potential partner will sense this softness underneath.

In a relationship, the Venus in Cancer woman looks for safety and security. She wants a partner who is sincere and genuine, someone who will never hurt her.

The Venus in Cancer woman can be a bit needy in relationships. She might have trouble establishing boundaries. It’s easy for her to get into codependent relationships because she might attract needy types, too.

If the Venus in Cancer woman does get into a codependent relationship, then she may come to resent her partner over time.

However, the Venus in Cancer woman will most likely side-step problems or avoid actual confrontation, especially in a relationship. The resentment may build up inside of her and come out sideways.

The Venus in Cancer woman is extremely loyal in a relationship. She falls in love very deeply. Ideally, she would have a strong partner who she can depend on.

She is typically scared to reveal her love and will need her partner to reassure her quite often. If there is a breakup, the Venus in Cancer woman will get extremely hurt. It might take her a long time to recover.

The Venus in Cancer problem looks best in clothing that’s feminine in some way. She might dress innocent and sweet or edgy and sexy, but she will somehow accentuate her feminine attributes.

In bed, the Cancer in Venus woman is caring, loving, and sentimental. Love goes along with physical expression; she needs both to feel satisfied.

How To Master The Venus In Cancer Energy

With Cancer in Venus, you want to learn empathy with detachment. You have a lot of deep compassion, but you tend to merge with the feelings of others and lose sight of reality.

It’s good to introduce a dose of logic into your emotional world. Learn to look at things using reason without shutting your emotions down.

It’s also helpful for you to find a group who cares for you as you care for them. With Venus in Cancer, you offer a lot of devotion and loyalty, but you should be careful that you don’t wind up with people who take advantage of you.

With Venus in Leo, you are attracted to people who are creative, or you may instead dream of being creative yourself.

You’re also relatively good with children because you never lose your own inner child. You are able to relate to most people on some level after you get to know them.

However, the thing that you value the most with Venus in Leo is simply love. You may be “in love with love,” or you might just value when others really speak from the heart. You care about relationships and love of all kind, from romantic love to familial love and friendship. Person to person contact means the most to you.

You also love when a potential partner notices you and is drawn to you. You get an energetic high from the entire situation. This is especially true when you’re out in a setting with a lot of people.

Typically, most Venus in Leo people are attracted to the most gravitational people in the room. They aren’t typically drawn to any one type of physical “look” but instead move towards the largest energy.

Relationships/Sex:

With Venus in Leo, you need reassurance and an open heart from your partner at all times. Impersonal behavior is scary to you because you sense your partner pulling away. 

You want to feel loved and appreciated. When a Venus in Leo person feels accepted, they will give that acceptance back equally in a relationship.

They need reassurance quite often (although not constantly). With Venus in Leo, you really just want to be noticed by your partner. If you feel seen and cherished then you will be at peace in a relationship.

It can be very difficult for you to separate love and sex. Sure, you might have casual sex, but in a relationship you keep the two intertwined and can’t see one without the other.

For a Venus in Leo individual, actions and physical expressions of love are best. Words are good, but these folks won’t believe them until they see the actions behind the words.

With Venus in Leo, you probably love the dating stage. You enjoy the teasing, expressive, warm vibes in the beginning of the relationship and want to hold onto that years later. You need the spark to really feel “in” a relationship. 

In a relationship, you are very generous with your time and money. When you are able, you will be lavish with those you care about and will give thoughtful gifts, bring your partner on a night out, etc. You want to show your partner that you care for them.

Most Venus in Leo people become really upset if they feel that they have been humiliated or betrayed. Anything that hurts their pride will have a lasting impact.

It’s hard for them to let go of these hurts. While they don’t exactly hold a grudge, they will simply feel extremely sensitive about a topic, even years later.

At the end of the day, the Venus in Leo person just wants to feel wanted. They will give this back in droves. They enjoy the “lovey” part of a relationship and never want this to end.

Venus in Leo people take their relationships very seriously. Romantic relationships and the outcomes of their relationships are simply a reflection of who they are because they live from the heart.

Venus In Leo: Best & Worst Qualities

Venus in Leo people are extremely gregarious and warmhearted, but they can also have emotional instability issues because they work so much from the heart. Alternatively, the can be a bit egotistical and wrapped up in the self.

The positives for Venus in Leo are the negatives when you look at both sides of the coin. There is no positive without an equal negative.

Venus In Leo: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Leo (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Leo. These Leo qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

The Venus In Leo Man:

The typical Venus in Leo man is super confident. He might be the life of the party socially. In a group, he won’t analyze things too deeply but will simply act on his instincts, which are usually correct.

This guy likes to be the main character; this comes to him naturally. He is playful and fun to be around, so people flock to him. He’s a natural socializer. If you’re hosting a party, the Venus in Leo man is a great guest to have around!

Romantically, the Venus in Leo man leans towards powerful partners. He is attracted to confidence and will want the most self-assured partner in the room.

While this man sometimes likes outgoing partners, he is generally attracted to the person who “runs” the group, whether they’re outgoing or introverted. He wants the most “important” person. He cares quite a bit about energetic status.

At the same time, the Venus in Leo man is also attracted to beauty. He enjoys a pretty face, nice clothes, and fine jewelry, but he is first attracted to confidence. He won’t be interested in beauty if it isn’t accompanied by an inner confidence. 

The Venus in Leo man is happy to shower his partner with praise and affection when he is into the relationship. He always expect the same back. This man likes to be pampered by his partner and needs to know that he is wanted.

The Venus in Leo man is likely to take things personally, especially if his partner criticizes him. He is rather fragile when he’s emotionally invested and needs to be treated delicately when his feelings are involved.

He can be a bit intense once he is committed to a relationship. It’s hard for him to avoid jealousy, but he also loves romance. He is fun loving and craves variety; this is the guy who will enjoy entertaining dates and nights out.

Occasionally, the Venus in Leo man can be outshined by his partner once he’s actually in a relationship, especially if his partner embodies many Leo qualities. This is not always the case and depends on the house and aspect.

The Venus In Leo Woman:

The Venus in Leo woman has a magnetic personality that “catches” people. Others seem to gravitate towards her. There might not be anything inherently special about the Venus in Leo woman; she simply has a magnetic energy.

Even if the Venus in Leo woman isn’t the loudest, she manages to grab attention in some way. She might do this unintentionally or intentionally. 

The Venus in Leo woman wants a grand, romantic love story when she first means someone. She is constantly looking for an epic love, even if this desire is subconscious.

She will try to impress potential partners with her power. She simply uses her gravitational energy a bit more around them and often ends up at the center of things.

Sometimes, potential partners are also captivated by her creative energy, although this will depend on the placement and aspects. She can easily form partnerships that are based around her creative endeavors, hobbies, or job.

In a relationship, the Venus in Leo woman is very loyal, but she also wants to be shown that her partner values her in return. Her biggest fear is indifference.

If you’re with a Venus in Leo woman, remember to bring her small trinkets after a trip away or little gifts here and there to show that you remember her. She doesn’t need anything super expensive but she does want things that come from the heart.

In return, the Venus in Leo woman is generous with her partners, too. She will shower them with gifts and love without hesitation. 

While the Venus in Leo woman can be a bit jealous at times, she might try to hard this or avoid acting on these feelings in public. Her partners are more likely to notice her bossiness, although the Venus in Leo woman won’t even realize she’s doing it because she’s focused on her own things.

In bed, the Venus in Leo woman is playful and passionate. It’s really important to her that the spark is kept alive. Again, her biggest fear is indifference. She would rather be playing or fighting instead of just avoiding each other. She wants to know that her partner cares for her in some way.

Ultimately, others can’t help but enjoy being around the Venus in Leo woman. She has a super infectious energy that leaks out to everyone around her. She can singlehandedly lift the spirits of any room.

How To Master The Venus In Leo Energy

Venus in Leo people speak and work from the heart. This can be really beneficial because they have a lot of love to give, but it can also mean that they can’t separate from their emotions.

The goal is for Venus in Leo folks to work on thinking things through before they act with logic and discernment. They need to sit down, make a list, and figure out what’s really going on with their feelings.

It is easy for those with Venus in Leo to lash out when they feel hurt, but a bit of self-therapy can go a long way and may save many of their relationships. 

If you have Venus in Leo, work on yourself when you feel hurt instead of trying to change others. Once you know your own feelings and can explain them without attacking the other person then your relationships will be much improved.

Venus in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Venus in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Venus in Pisces is a floaty, etherial placement. Some of the most beautiful and talented actors, musicians, and artists have this placement, but it also comes with a whole host of problems.

As those with any Pisces placements know, Pisces makes everything feel unstable and uncertain. In the sign of Venus, this is especially hard. With Venus in Pisces, you may never know exactly what’s going on in your love life.

There are so many aspects to Venus in Pisces that I had to break up each area into sections. Keep reading to learn how Venus in Pisces manifests in regards to money, style, pleasure, values, attraction, relationships, and sex.

Venus In Pisces Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Pisces shows up.

Money and Style:

At first, those with Venus in Pisces might have trouble understanding money because they live in an almost mythical realm inside their heads. Until they’re hit with the hard realities, they might focus on their dreams or pleasures more than on earning an income.

With Venus in Pisces, you might believe that feelings and relationships are more important than money. This can manifest positively or negatively. You are probably very financially generous when you do care about someone.

Those with Venus in Pisces usually have something that feels gentle and dreamy about their looks. Many people with this placement have romantic eyes or a mysterious gaze, while others dress in sweet clothing (soft colors, flower patterns, etc.) or even just have a really soft energy.

This is a very artistic placement, which is often easy to see in the eyes as well.

Pleasure:

If you have Venus in Pisces, you take pleasure in anything creative and expressive. I personally know quite a few people with Venus in Pisces who work in scientific fields but still have a vibrant creative streak and appreciate the arts in some manner.

You may also be drawn to the occult, to gothic time periods, or to learning more about what’s “out there.” You like the big questions as well as anything mysterious or mystical.

With Venus in Pisces, you enjoy shows, movies, books, or other things that you can get lost in. Most people with this placement love learning about alternate worlds in fiction; they generally like having an escape from real life through fairy-tales. Often, these folks are nostalgic for another age or time period.

Much of your pleasure comes from dreaming about and planning the future. You love to daydream and might yearn to skip ahead to the good part.

With Venus in Pisces, your tastes might be slightly erratic. You can love something one day and hate it the next, but just as quickly pick up a new obsession. This placement is a bit changeable.

Values:

With Venus in Pisces, you value loyalty and helpfulness. You tend to be very considerate towards others but you can quickly take on too many emotion burdens and get bogged down. This can cause difficulties both physically and emotionally.

You care for others and simply want to be cherished by friends and family in return. You have a lot of room for error on the part of others, but if you feel like this care isn’t returned over time, you will eventually be emotionally drained.

Attraction:

If you have Venus in Pisces, you have a tendency to be attracted to someone who needs help or who comes with a few issues. You love the underdog! This can manifest as attraction to someone with past trauma or security issues, or can show up as interest in someone with alcohol or drug addictions.

Those with Venus in Pisces like romance and tenderness. They’re attracted to the feelings that someone brings out in them, not just physical aspects of the other person.

These folks flirt by being slightly playful, yet they can be moody and changeable at the same time. They’re a funny mix of odd and romantic.

Venus in Pisces women tend to attract men pretty easily because they have such a sensitive, feminine aura. They have a soft and sensitive allure that energetically draws others in.

Relationships/Sex:

For a Venus in Pisces person, love is a mystical experience. If you have this placement, you might feel like things are always changing in your relationships, even your own mind. The feeling of falling in love is unlike anything else for you. At the same time, nothing feels stable, so it can be difficult to discern the truth.

You easily miss red flags and tend to fall in love at first sight, but often you’re holding onto the idea of love without really knowing the other person. It’s extremely easy for a Venus in Pisces to fall fast because they look through rose colored glasses; it’s also easy for them to get hurt.

You may tell little white lies when you first meet someone, but this is because you want them to like you. A deep desire within you is to be accepted, however this manifests. You might take on the energy of whatever you feel your partner wants instead of showing your true self.

It’s easy for you to become addicted to intimacy and to go to any lengths to regain it in a relationship when it is lost. Sometimes, a person with Venus in Pisces holds onto a bad relationship too long, but there always needs to be mutual respect for it to last forever.

You have very high expectations for a relationship. You can be deeply hurt easily, but you can also forgive almost anything with enough time and effort. Your feelings (especially your gut instincts) are really important to you, so you can’t truly forgive until a situation feels resolved; your emotions may take more time to catch up to your thoughts.

Sexually, people with Venus in Pisces can get so caught up creating a passionate fantasy in their mind that it’s hard for them to enjoy anything physically when the moment comes. They tend to get stuck in their heads. They’re very sexual in their thoughts, but may have trouble acting out their fantasies (which are often grand and detailed).

Those with Venus in Pisces can be difficult for their partners to understand because they’re so changeable. They want a specific kind of romance one day but the next day they’re onto a new idea or obsession and don’t have space for romance.

In a relationship, those with Venus in Pisces can sometimes discover that they don’t actually love the other person, but are in love with the idea of their partner. This is a selfish aspect of the placement, even though these folks can also be extremely unselfish with people they care for. There is almost no in-between.

It can be tough to understand a Venus in Pisces when they don’t completely understand themselves, but at the end of the day, they just want to feel understood and want a deep, spiritual connection. Someone with Venus in Pisces is always wanting to be known and seen by a partner.

Venus In Pisces: Best & Worst Qualities

Venus in Pisces people can adapt to the moods of others, but they tend to lose themselves in the process. They want to merge desire emotional closeness, yet they neglect to set personal boundaries.

More than any other Venus sign, I find that almost every positive quality from Venus in Pisces has an equal negative. Sometimes, the positives are the negatives.

Here are the most common qualities with the Venus in Pisces placement. Keep in mind that no individual will have all of these qualities because it will depend on your specific placement (aspects, house, etc.), but many of them are likely to show up.

Best:

  • Romantic
  • Sensitive
  • Spiritual
  • Artistic
  • Creative
  • Mystical
  • Sweet
  • Generous
  • Compassionate

Worst:

  • Irresponsible
  • Day Dreamer
  • Lives In A Fantasy
  • Escapist
  • Selfish
  • Over Emotional
  • Wistful
  • Sacrificial

Venus In Pisces: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Pisces (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Pisces. These Piscean qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

The Venus In Pisces Man:

The typical Venus in Pisces man prefers feminine women. He likes partners who are fragile, delicate, gentle, and sensitive. Sometimes, the Venus in Pisces man is attracted to someone who needs him or relies on him. It can be easy for this guy to end up in slightly codependent relationships.

The Venus in Pisces man gravitates towards those who are etherial and mysterious. Hidden depth is appealing interesting to him and will make him want to get to know the person on a deeper level.

These guys will definitely shy away from anyone who is too aggressive or angry; they prefer their partners gentle. They want someone a little mystical to appeal to those dreamy parts inside them.

A Venus in Pisces man is usually an initiator, at least at first, so he’s attracted to women who give him a chance to properly initiate instead of doing it themselves. He tends to get in very deep very quickly with a new partner.

The difficulty for a Venus in Pisces man comes after he has been in a relationship for a while. He tends dive in headfirst, but at some point, the mystery will disappear as he gets to know who his partner really is.

Too much turmoil can cause the Venus in Pisces man to withdraw from a relationship either emotionally, physically, or both. He can’t stand emotional turmoil. He picks up on his partner’s energy very easy and negative feelings influence him over time.

The Venus in Pisces man can have difficulty with boundaries. Venus in Pisces is such a floaty, romantic sign that it’s very hard for him to find clarity.

He may also have a fear of his partner leaving him once he has opened up. The Venus in Pisces man is sensitive and vulnerable inside, and once he shows this to someone it’s hard for him to come back from.

At the end of the day, the Venus in Pisces man wants someone he can be sure of. He needs to know that his partner will love him no matter what.

Sexually, the Venus in Pisces man is very creative, but he wants an open woman who he feels comfortable expressing his desires with. He can come off as passive until he has someone who opens the door to their fantasies, which are very intricate.

This man will have an easier time connecting sexually when he feels emotionally connected, but he may be physically unable to engage sexually after an argument.

The Venus In Pisces Woman:

The typical Venus in Pisces woman is a thoughtful listener who will empathize even if she doesn’t know the person well. In the beginning, she’s usually on your side right away.

These women don’t usually make the first move. They yearn to be loved exclusively in a romantic way that feels almost vintage. The Venus in Pisces woman probably has millions of fantasies in her head that she is rarely brave enough to actually act out, but the desire is definitely in there.

When she first meets someone, she will unconsciously conform to be what they want. Pisces is changeable, allowing her to do this, and it’s often lovely at first for her partner to have their ideal mate. This can cause problems later in the relationship when her true self is different from what she showed initially.

If you have Venus in Pisces, you have a huge imagination. This makes you pretty engaging and witty during conversation, and you can easily “hook” people without being super outgoing; your energy is enough.

You will go to great lengths to make your partner feel loved (with presents, gestures, dates, etc.) but you need someone who is willing to play along with your games, fantasies, and mood swings in return. You don’t mean to be moody, but your changeable nature makes it impossible to remain consistent.

It can be really difficult for the Venus in Pisces woman to get a clear handle on the idea of love. Her romantic relationships might feel ever-changing or topsy-turvy no matter how stable the actual relationship is.

She needs a clear, concrete declaration of love from a partner; she doesn’t like to read signs or guess, maybe because she already struggles to formulate her own objective theories about love.

The Venus in Pisces woman falls in love quickly and may make grand plans with a partner right away, but she will often find that what she believes is love is actually just lust or attachment. She generally falls in love with the person she meets at first and doesn’t quite understand that there is a deeper soul inside the mask of the individual.

Long-term, it’s hard for the Venus in Pisces woman to find a true soulmate. She might always feel like a piece of her is missing. She desires an intensely spiritual reunion that feels 100% right, but her lesson is to learn that life on earth takes work. Many of these women look for a relationship that isn’t grounded in reality.

The goal for the Venus in Pisces woman is to be a relationship that is both romantic and real.

This woman can be more attached to both positive and negative past events than other placements. She has a dramatic flair and can be involved in really emotional fights if she feels hurt or wounded. This woman is usually very sensitive.

It’s easy for the Venus in Pisces woman to become jealous, but this is usually based on her fear that her partner will leave her, which would wreck her emotionally. Unlike other placements, she can’t separate from her emotions.

While the Venus in Pisces woman hates feeling jealous (because it sends her emotions spiraling), she might enjoy seeing her partner feel jealous or possessive once in a while.

You’ll know that the Venus in Pisces woman has settled down and found true love when she begins making realistic plans.

Turn-ons for this woman include deep, emotional bonding, as well as her partner noticing her idiosyncrasies. She might like her partner to be a bit dominant sexually while remaining emotionally attached; it’s hard for the Venus in Pisces woman to have good sex without feeling emotionally involved and loved.

This woman might be a bit shy in bed. She generally wants to please but she may need someone else to give her direction.

It can be difficult for a Venus in Pisces woman to pin down exactly what it is that she desires. Her needs are ever-changing and it’s hard for her to discern what she wants versus what her partner wants.

Her fantasies are intricate and detailed, but it’s difficult for her to actually vocalize or act on them. An open and caring partner who is willing to listen and help the Venus in Pisces woman sort out her desires is necessary to achieve a satisfactory sex life.

How To Master The Venus In Pisces Energy

At its best, Venus in Pisces is all about pure, unconditional love. What a person with Venus in Pisces needs to learn is that this love doesn’t happen instantly.

True love isn’t the romantic “love at first sight” that Venus in Pisces tend to fall into. It takes work and it takes time to truly know another person’s soul. The soul is what the Venus in Pisces person seeks to understand, but it’s on the path to this knowing where they stumble.

Venus in Pisces has the tendency to conform into whatever they think others want. They can usually sense what their partner desires energetically because Venus in Pisces is so sensitive, but the goal is to be comfortable showing their true selves rather than conforming.

It can help a person with Venus in Pisces to work on shielding their energy through various techniques in order to stop conforming to what others want.

With Venus in Pisces, you need to learn how to follow your gut feelings, not your fantasies, in order to develop relationships at the soul level.

Venus In Aquarius In The Birth Chart

Venus In Aquarius In The Birth Chart

Venus is the sign of beauty, money, pleasure, attraction, and style, so Venus in Aquarius can feel like a bit of an anomaly. Aquarius is an eccentric yet scientific sign, whereas Venus is romance and poetry. How can these two fit together?

In general, I find that this placement is neat yet unique. It’s an odd combination that works really well. Some of my favorite artists and celebrities have this placement, probably because it always causes the individual to stand out in some way.

The Venus in Aquarius symbol will look like this in your birth chart. You’ll want to note what house the placement is in, since the house will affect how Venus is expressed in your personality. Once you’ve found your Venus sign, read on and see if these qualities fit you!

Venus In Aquarius Characteristics

Venus rules many different areas, but some of these areas will show up for you more than than others. This is because your individual Venus placement is unique and has its own aspects and house.

Here are the general areas that Venus in Aquarius influences.

Money and Style:

With Venus in Aquarius, you do value money, but tend to see it as a means to an end. For you, the value of money is the experiences that it makes possible or the things you can do with it.

Unless you have other planets that point to these traits, you don’t want to have money just for the sake of being rich.

When it comes to style, you’re probably very clean. Sometimes, those with Venus in Aquarius dress extremely plain and simple, preferring function and quality over everything else, while other Venus in Aquarius individuals will dress flashy, edgy, and different.

Regardless of which style is yours, you will always make sure that your clothes are clean and neat.

Some great examples of celebrities with Venus in Aquarius are Ellen DeGeneres, Harry Styles, Kate Middleton, and Taylor Swift. While their actual styles of dress vary, they’re all extremely particular and are always immaculately dressed.

When you meet someone with Venus in Aquarius, they might look totally normal and appear simple in style, but there is always a feeling that something is different about the person. These folks carry a unique energy that makes them stand out.

Pleasure:

You don’t like following the “rules” of society with Venus in Aquarius; you take pleasure in doing things differently or making an existing process better. You’re proud to follow a unique path.

Sometimes, with Venus in Aquarius, you might enjoy “crusader mode,” especially when you’re fighting for a cause. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re involved with charities or philanthropy (although it could). You might just as easily care about children, animals, plants, or quite literally anything else. Often, this crusader mode is a natural instinct and isn’t necessarily something that involves your job or hobbies directly.

You take pleasure in thinking up new, creative or futuristic ideas. Creativity is surprisingly prominent in this placement, even though Aquarius is known as a science sign.

Values:

If you have Venus in Aquarius, you value honesty and loyalty. Aquarians are known for being off-beat, but they are a fixed sign so they definitely aren’t fickle. You want friends you can count on.

You also might be friends with an eclectic mix of people; the look of the group doesn’t matter much to you as long as the friendships are genuine and provide mental stimulation.

Intellect is very important to these folks. They value challenging conversations and might be drawn towards unusual friends. To a Venus in Aquarius, different is refreshing.

Attraction:

If you have Venus in Aquarius, you attract others through the mind. In some specific ways you’re progressive, open, and radical, and people who want that variety are drawn to you.

In social situations (especially romantic), you might be a bit aloof. This attracts those whose enjoy the chase, although this aloofness can later be difficult when you’re actually in a relationship and your partner wants more emotional intimacy.

Generally, you attract both partners and platonic friends by simply being interesting. You’re always a step ahead of others with your mental processes.

Relationships/Sex:

With Venus in Aquarius, you need a relationship without too many restrictions. Many individuals with Venus in Aquarius are in committed, monogamous relationships (despite the stereotype), but they just handle feeling smothered.

You might enjoy relationships with different rules and will need to figure out how to communicate this to your partner. Most of the time, with Venus in Aquarius, you need to feel that you’re friends with your partner as well as lovers. Companionship and intellectual compatibility are extremely important to you.

You want to be loved for your intellect and your visions above all. With a partner or even prospective partner, you need a strong mental connection. You don’t like to feel bored and will quickly leave if a relationship turns stale.

Sometimes, I find that those with Venus in Aquarius feel an attraction to partners who don’t reciprocate. They might enjoy the detachment of the other person. This is by no means a rule, but it is something that tends to happen with the placement, especially during the early stages of a relationship.

Alternatively, if a partner becomes too emotional or clingy, this individual will usually withdraw; they get claustrophobic in relationships easily. Neediness is this kiss of death for these folks.

It’s important for you to feel that your relationship is heading somewhere. You don’t like boredom or monotony. With a deeply intellectual partner, this is less likely to occur.

Venus In Aquarius: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive qualities as well as difficult traits. No one individual will have all of these attributes because each Venus placement is unique depending on the house and aspects. These are qualities that these folks can have, but you’ll have to look to the individual to see what fits.

Best:

  • Unconventional
  • Passionate
  • Open
  • Intellectual
  • Creative
  • Tolerant
  • Non-possessive
  • Friendly
  • Sociable
  • Honest

Worst:

  • Aloof
  • Superior
  • Oddball
  • Detached
  • Impersonal
  • Easily bored
  • Fickle

Venus In Aquarius: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Aquarius (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Aquarius. These Aquarian qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Aquarius Man

The typical Venus in Aquarius man is attracted to partners who are a little different. Most people picture the stereotypical Aquarius hippie, but his attraction can lean towards people who are different in any specific area, especially depending on the house his Venus falls in.

For example, I personally know Venus in Aquarius men who are attracted to partners who parent their children differently, work in a job that’s a little divergent from what society expects, dress eccentrically, are into vintage music, etc. His ideal partner will be unique in a specific way that’s not the same for every Venus in Aquarius man. These differences might not even be obvious to others, but to him this is what sparks attraction.

The regular Venus in Aquarius man tends to be relaxed and to go with the flow in social situations. He doesn’t like to be bored and needs a partner who is up for talking about intellectual topics and big ideas. Dullness and routine will kill any attraction immediately for the Venus in Aquarius man.

Independence is especially attractive to the Venus in Aquarius man. He wants his partner to have their own hobbies, talents, or dreams. He won’t be interested in anyone who becomes too needy or clingy; most Venus in Aquarius men do want to have a committed relationship with the right person, but they need it to be equal and intellectual, if not exciting and different. The Venus in Aquarius man is never totally conventional in a relationship.

The Venus in Aquarius man probably won’t mind if his partner is a bit erratic mentally. She might be messy, might start new projects constantly, or come up with new, exciting ideas. It probably doesn’t bother him to come home to his house redecorated or to a spouse who suddenly switches careers.

When he’s first getting to know a new partner, coldness can actually be a turn-on for the Venus in Aquarius man. He doesn’t mind if his partner is a bit aloof, as long as they’re willing to discuss big ideas when they do spend time together. He can sometimes like the chase.

Physically, the Venus in Aquarius man is just as different. He doesn’t typically go for the most attractive girl in the room, especially when choosing a long-term partner. These men are often attracted to someone considered plain by conventional standards because they see more than just beauty: the mind is most important to these folks.

Venus In Aquarius Woman

The Venus in Aquarius woman is a free spirit who is strong-willed. In the areas where her Venus shines, she always follows her own path. For example, she might eat vegan, choose to school her kids differently, or work in a career that makes her a bit of an outcast. Sometimes, these differences are more subtle; for example, I know a Venus in Aquarius woman who is obsessed with collecting vintage items and only wears vintage clothing. Whatever this woman does, she does it without hesitation.

The Venus in Aquarius woman gets bored quickly and may jump from one project to another. Her dream man is also independent and solves his own problems easily. She doesn’t like to be needed too much. Sometimes, the Venus in Aquarius woman will put up with clinginess, but it’s a turn-off for her.

Her ideal partner is social and outgoing in groups. She also wants someone flexible who is up for anything, no matter how radical it may seem. Regardless of the stereotype of Aquarius (which is often free love), she does want someone trustworthy and loyal.

In a relationship, she can be a bit cold at times. She might not show a ton of affection, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t feel love; the Venus in Aquarius woman just has a hard time showing it.

This woman can even be kind of cool or cold in bed. The idea of sex is usually more exciting than the actual act, and by the time she gets down to it, she might not be interested anymore. She can have a tough time letting loose in the romance and sex department.

Even though the Venus in Aquarius woman is “different” or unusual, I find that these women have pretty traditional relationships. They typically don’t mind being committed as long as they have their independence. They enjoy relationships where each partner has their own hobbies, talents, or work, and doesn’t need to be together 24/7. They simply need emotional space from time to time.

The Venus in Aquarius woman is good at being friends with the opposite sex and keeping it strictly platonic. These women often have a lot of guy friends (especially earlier on in life) who they just see as friends. There is a clear line for them between friendship and romance, although they need both in a relationship.

How To Master The Venus In Aquarius Energy

The key for someone with Venus in Aquarius is to celebrate their differences and be themselves without apology, yet to also remember that other people have feelings. It’s easy for a Venus in Aquarius person to get so caught up in their own unique experiences that they forget to treat others nicely.

The natural defense mechanism for these folks is to turn away or grow cold, but they have a huge amount of warmth underneath, they just need to remember to access it and to treat others how they want to be treated.

Flirting Style By Signs: Venus and Mars

Flirting Style By Signs: Venus and Mars

Flirting is human nature. It’s something that we can do consciously or unconsciously, but we all flirt a little different.

In astrology, how you flirt will depend on your Venus or Mars and what sign and house the planet is in. If you want to know how you or someone you know flirts, then keep reading!

Should You Look At Your Venus or Mars?

If you think of yourself as classically feminine (most women but some men), then you’ll flirt using your Venus. You’ll want to look at the sign and house your Venus is in to determine your style.

If you think of yourself as classically masculine (most men but some women), then you’ll flirt using your Mars. Look at the sign and house your Mars is in.

Most people will have some combination of the two, but tend to have more qualities of the sign that corresponds with their chosen gender.

Like any typical Aries, you’re spontaneous, impulsive, courageous, and outwardly flirty. You aren’t afraid of rejection, and you even love a good competition when it comes to flirting. You’re the type of person to go for the best looking partner at a party, just because you can.

Anyone with a Venus or Mars in Aries won’t be super romantic, but they will immediately go after what they want in a blunt, straightforward, even shocking way.

Gemini:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Gemini or Mars (with masculine energy) in Gemini, you’re all about mental stimulation when flirting. You love to be witty and chat up your love interest.

You probably show off your smarts in variety of ways – look to your chart to see what types of Gemini things you’re into. You could simply converse in a clever way, or talk about your favorite books, ideas, articles, etc. You like romantic variety, and don’t mind bouncing around the room to chat with a bunch of different people or prospects.

Regardless of how you show off your smarts, you definitely display a sharp mind and will use words to flirt. You’re not scared to banter with someone you’re interested in!

The most telling sign for a Venus/Mars in Gemini is how up and down you come across. You might be totally into someone one minute, then be across the room doing something else the next. You have a mysterious nature that’s very attractive, but it’s really just because no one can hold your attention for too long.

Cancer:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Cancer or Mars (with masculine energy) in Cancer, then you’re a little timid in your approach. You probably won’t immediately approach, but once you are talking to someone and decide that you want to flirt with them, there is no one more sweet, caring, sensitive, and emotionally supportive.

You put your love interest at ease right away. Although your flirting style is subtle, you’ll feel like home to a partner due to your sentimental tendencies.

You can be a little on the shy side in an adorable sense. A Cancer Venus/Mars is known for blushing!

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Leo or Mars (with masculine energy) in Leo, you’re probably a bit of a show-off in a good way! You’re boisterous, loud, and playful, especially around anyone you intent to attract.

You’re most certainly bold. You possess lots of flair, and you’re dramatic, but can also be romantic; those with Venus/Mars in Leo are known for showering love interests with gifts.

You’re warm, touchy, entertaining, and sexy. Whether or not the relationship lasts, you’re always fun to be around!

Virgo:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Virgo or Mars (with masculine energy) in Virgo, then you might notice particulars about your love interest and mention them as a means of flirting; this lets them know that you see who they are.

You can be discriminating and picky, but when you’re actively flirting, you do this in a caring manner; you might fuss over the other person to show affection. You may also adapt yourself to the person you’re flirting with in tone, speech, body language, etc.

If you have Venus or Mars in Virgo, you can be witty and attentive all at once. This can be a really fun combination! Above all, you flirt by making observations about the other person which make them feel special.

Libra:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Libra or Mars (with masculine energy) in Libra, then you’re outgoing, charming, and playful.

You’ll always be very composed in the presence of someone you’re flirting with, but you’re also smooth and charismatic. You might even lead someone on without realizing it. Those with Venus/Mars in Libra are huge flirts!

You’re probably a little witty, but in an elegant way with the intent to appeal. You exude beauty, and will love to talk about all things beautiful.

Scorpio:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Scorpio or Mars (with masculine energy) in Scorpio, then you’re quiet yet intense around someone you’re flirting with. You can be mesmerizing and probing, and you won’t give attention to anyone except the object of your affection.

You probably ask deep, intense questions right off the bat, and want the person you’re flirting with to feel like there’s no one in the world except the two of you.

You can also be psychically intense. Even if you’re not speaking, the person you’re interested in will feel these deep, powerful vibes coming off of you.

Sagittarius:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Sagittarius or Mars (with masculine energy) in Sagittarius, then you’re adventurous and fun while flirting. You’re bouncy and you always come off as a free spirit.

You immediately seem extremely friendly and open, and you love making the person you’re interested in laugh. You might sometimes embellish the truth in order to create a better atmosphere, but you usually don’t mean anything bad by this.

At some points, you might be extremely blunt. You find it amusing to throw the truth out there and see how the other person reacts, but you also want to your object of affection to laugh and have a good time.

Capricorn:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Capricorn or Mars (with masculine energy) in Capricorn, then you’re very composed around someone you’re interested in. You won’t be super outgoing, but you’re not quiet either: you’re just strong.

You might come off as reliable, responsible, and powerful. You’re a little more serious, but you’ll still want to discuss interesting topics and won’t be boring.

If you have Venus/Mars in Capricorn, you could either come off as reserved as quiet, or as wealthy, mature, and reputable. You’ll probably flirt by establishing your position in some way.

Aquarius:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Aquarius or Mars (with masculine energy) in Aquarius, you may act one of two ways.

You might come off as quirky, interesting, unique, and individualistic. You flirt by showing what’s different about you and how much you refuse to conform to society and culture. You love to talk about new ideas and might flirt through conversation (which is always super unique), wacky clothes, or even unconventional body language. You’re goofy and fun-loving!

Alternatively, you might seem cool, detached, unemotional, and intellectual. This will attract a partner who wants to learn more about you, as you can seem mysterious and mentally stimulating. You may not be unemotional in reality, but you use this “witholding” method as a means of flirting.

Pisces:

If you have either Venus (with feminine energy) in Pisces or Mars (with masculine energy) in Pisces, you probably come off as mysterious and deep. This is not in a Scorpio fashion (this depth is not scary), but in an ideological fashion. You’re sort of like a deep cavern, or blank slate, which allows your love interest to project their idea of romance onto you.

You come off as an illusion yourself. You also seem compassionate, soulful, demure, and self-sacrificing. You often have deep eyes that draw the other in. You’re nervous and timid (when sober!), but this somehow works in your favor and attracts those with more bold flirting signs.

This description is easy to apply to Venus in Pisces, but Mars in Pisces is a bit tougher. With masculine energy, you are mainly focused on finding a soul-mate connection, even if it’s just for a night. You’re affectionate, romantic, and sensuous. You do have a deep, mysterious sense about you that feminine energy flocks to.

After a few drinks, someone with Venus/Mars in Pisces can be silly and even somewhat outgoing!

How You Attract Potential Partners Based On Your Venus

How You Attract Potential Partners Based On Your Venus

We’re all a collection of most of the signs in astrology. Our birth charts are complex, so it’s 100% impossible to sum any person up while describing just one sign.

When it comes to the astrology of attraction, it’s a little bit simpler. We all attract others in a slightly different way, but you can usually look to your Venus or Mars (depending on the gender you feel you are) to see how you attract potential partners and love interests.

Traditional astrology says that women will attract others using the qualities of their Venus sign, while men will attract others using the qualities of their Mars sign. I’ve found that this is 80% true.

What I mean by this is that if a woman has a Venus in Aries and a Mars in Pisces, she will show 80% Aries qualities and 20% Pisces qualities when interacting with a potential partner.

If that’s confusing, let me try an example:

Let’s take Marilyn Monroe. Her Venus was in Aries, so 80% of her “attractive” qualities that others notice right away will be Arian qualities. She was probably outgoing, bold, spontaneous, and even a little selfish. Because her Mars is in Pisces, 20% of her attractive qualities will be Piscean. She might be a little illusive and mysterious, which was clearly a popular combination with her Aries Venus.

This combination will attract others who are interested in these qualities. In order to have chemistry, your potential partner needs to have signs in his/her chart that draw him/her to this energy.

Are These Gender Roles Absolute?

They are definitely not concrete! When I say “women attract using their Venus,” I really mean that people who have more feminine energy will identify more with their Venus sign. Those with more masculine energy will identify more with their Mars sign.

Ask yourself which energy you identify with more, then read the rest of the post looking at whichever planet correlates with that post. Feminine energy = Venus; Masculine energy = Mars. Don’t forget that we’ll all show a bit of the opposite planet’s qualities as well!

This post will be all about the Venus energy in attraction, so these are the qualities you will show 20% of the time if you are more masculine, or 80% of time if you are more feminine. You’ll mainly show these qualities when you feel (consciously or unconsciously) that there is a prospective mate around. A good example of this is when you’re at a bar or party surrounded by your peers.

How You Can Feel This “Attraction” Energy

You might not actually see much of this energy with your own eyes, but simply feel it. For example, a guy I know has Venus and Mars both in Gemini. Even though he might not talk much when he’s at work, others can definitely sense this Gemini energy and see him as somewhat of a player. I’m often told that he’s a cool guy who has a great group of friends, even though none of his coworkers really know his friends. They just sense the energy and fill in the blanks.

You’ll be able to feel this energy as soon as you enter the room. Think about all of the people you know while reading this list (or whoever’s charts you have access to!) and see if the energy fits.

Keep in mind that you’ll be able to sense the energy at a much stronger level if you’re someone the person might be trying to attract, whether they mean to or not. It’s much easier to sense this energy while in a group of your peers, even if some of them are already in relationships: they probably send the energy out subconsciously to anyone who is a prospective mate. This is in no way cheating, it’s just a biological instinct!

How You Attract Others Based On Your Venus Qualities

In this post, we’re going to look at the qualities of Venus. You’ll either show about 80% of these qualities (if you identify with feminine energy) or about 20% (if you identify with masculine energy). Here’s how each sign works to attract potential partners:

Aries:

You are bold, direct, aggressive, and selfish. This can come off as really charming to the right person. You don’t mince words, and you’re likely to be extremely blunt when explaining what you’re looking for.

You have tons of energy and can give others an instant energetic boost just by being in the same room. You like the take the lead, so you often attract someone who enjoys being more passive and who likes being around your big energy. You’re probably a little outgoing and popular in a group.

You might be a little competitive, so you could attract someone who likes watching others fight for them.

Taurus:

If you have a Venus in Taurus, you have a dependable yet beautiful quality. You’re not extremely bouncy, but you do have an earthly sense of luxury. You often attract others with physical things such as money, food, clothes, manners, etc.

You will definitely appeal to the luxurious side of anyone you’re trying to attract. You have an aura of class that others will immediately recognize, and you hold some sort of status due to material objects.

Gemini:

If you have Venus in Gemini, you will attract others using witty conversation and super sharp intellect. You may enjoy bantering, or like to play fun mind games. You can enjoy chasing or being chased.

Someone who likes this kind of novelty will instantly be attracted to your energy. A potential partner will want someone who switches things up to keep them guessing, and this is exactly what you do.

You may also be very curious and ask a variety of questions while in the company of others which can make them feel really special.

Cancer:

You attract others by being sensitive and caring. What people have to say really matters to you, and potential partners sense that they can safely share their feelings with you. You will go to any lengths to care for someone emotionally, and others sense that almost immediately.

Someone who needs some emotional care will be instantly attracted to your energy, while those who want to keep things lighter and more surface level may be turned off.

Leo:

If you have Venus in Leo, you probably attract others by showing off. You’re the brightest light in the room, and everyone else knows it. Some people are attracted to that insanely bright light, and you will find those people drawn towards you.

You have high expectations and will usually let that be known, so you sometimes attract people who like the game. You can also attract social climbers, or those who genuinely admire your big personality.

You might tell grandiose stories, laugh more loudly, or show off some sort of talent. You are also very physical, and you may attract others by showing them physical affection; you can even just be more touchy in casual conversation.

You’re definitely not fickle, and once you decide you want to attract a certain individual (even unconsciously), you won’t stray.

Virgo:

Those with Venus in Virgo attract in a much quieter, simpler way. Others might not notice you right off the bat, but those who are drawn to the Virgo energy will find you hidden in the corner; they will like the nondescript, plain qualities that you possess.

You might lovingly criticize or joke about the person you want to attract (similar to how kids pick on their crush in middle school) and this is all part of how you flirt. You might also do little things to show your appreciation. You could comment on someone’s charm bracelet, or wallet, or notice the way they pronounce a word, for example. The subtleties of someone’s character matter to you. You will try to attract through all practical manners, and might do small favors for those you’re interesting in.

Libra:

If you have Venus in Libra, you absolutely love attracting other people. You’re very polished and won’t often use crude words or speak too loudly. Instead, you try to attract by appearing beautiful and sophisticated on all levels (looks, intellect, and even spirit).

Those with Venus in Libra can be pretty outgoing. You’re probably very social, like a happy butterfly, and you try to stay on good terms with everyone. This attracts people who want someone with great social skills.

You attract others by being nice, happy, sweet, and upscale. Being around you makes potential partners feel good and as though they’ve found someone who is wonderful on all levels. The trick will be keeping this up once you enter into a relationship.

Scorpio:

If you have Venus in Scorpio, then you have a deep intensity that others can sense. Potential partners will almost immediately feel that once you commit, you’re all in, and that you have an extremely profound emotional nature.

When you come across a potential partner, you will be intensely focused on them. Those who are looking for a lighter relationship (e.g. anyone with a lot of Gemini) won’t like this, but someone who is looking for this exact intensity will immediately be drawn to you.

You might also draw those to you who are attracted to anything dark or tragic, since you give off a slightly desolate air.

Sagittarius:

Venus in Sagittarius means that you’re very attractive to others due to your friendliness, your smile, your fun-loving nature, and your up-for-anything attitude. You’re very easy to be around initially, and you like to bounce around and try new activities.

You also love a good philosophical discussion, or anything that’s interesting but not too personal. You probably won’t want to get too deep right off-the-bat, but you do like a fun adventure, whether that be something physical or just a discussion.

In a group, you’re social but fun, and some partners may be looking for just this.

Capricorn:

If you have Venus in Capricorn, you come across as very controlled, confident, goal-oriented, and responsible. You’ll act like that experienced CEO who  takes everyone pretty seriously and exudes an air of confidence.

You send out an energy of competency that will attract others. You won’t be very warm or display many emotions, even though you will feel them inside. Others might either want to play the game and break through to find your emotions, or enjoy how self-reliant you are and how they don’t have to baby you.

Aquarius:

If you have Venus in Aquarius, you might come off as a little aloof. You probably dress somewhat plain and don’t go crazy with hair or makeup, but there’s still a slightly different energy about you that some people will find really appealing.

You’re a little detached, and others might like that. You can also be a bit of a dreamer, and don’t care to think about if your dreams are realistic or not.

You might have unconventional ideas for how you’ll do things in a relationship or in your future, and these ideas will probably excite potential partners who will find you extremely interesting and refreshing. You’ll attract people who are sick of the same-old and who are looking for something (and someone) different.

Pisces:

You have a very elusive, mysterious, delicate energy that attracts others to you because they want to know more. You often have deep eyes, and others have the sense that there’s a lot more below the surface. You will typically attract people who want to find out what’s there.

You might also give off a soft, romantic vibe that potential partners like.

You also give off a somewhat blank slate (due to this unnamed mysterious nature) that potential partners can use to project their ideal image of love. When you first meet someone, they might feel as thought you’re the exact partner they’ve been looking for, although these are simply qualities the partner sees in his/her head.

Venus in Retrograde

If you have Venus in Retrograde, a lot of this flirting will be internalized. You probably won’t make moves to actually flirt or attract, but the energy of your Venus sign will still be apparent. It will just be something others feel instead of outwardly see, at first.

For example, if you have Venus in Sagittarius retrograde, you probably won’t be the life of the party. You won’t bounce around, chatting with a variety of different people, or suggest a new activity every 20 minutes. You’ll be much more reserved, but this restless, happy energy will still be apparent to anyone who is attracted to you.
