Compatibility Analysis

Using astrological techniques to analyze compatibility.
 

Much has been said about the compatibility of Sun Signs. Does Taurus get along with Aries? What’s the best sign for Sagittarius? … and so forth. For example, although Aries and Leo are supposed to get along, in reality they might butt heads, while the theoretically incompatible Libra and Cancer might happily stay together forever. This is because Sun Sign Compatibility takes into account only one of hundreds of compatibility factors.
 
When the relationship in question is a love relationship, one factor that should be considered is the comparison of Venus signs. Although similar to Sun Sign compatibility, Venus Sign compatibility hones in on the individuals’ love nature, and can therefore be exceptionally illuminating. Use these compatibility texts to compare Venus signs or Sun signs. Note: You are likely familiar with comparing sun signs to determine compatibility. It can be much more revealing to compare Venus signs in romantic relationships!
 
If your Venus is in Aries
When your Venus is in Aries, you are direct and upfront about what you want. Your love nature is well-developed, but your fire can burn out just as quickly as it’s ignited. Your love nature is rather me-centered, not unlike the nature of a newborn child whose cries seem to say, “Hey, what about me?!”
 
Your infatuations are quick and all-encompassing, and you love a chase! You tend to prefer being the one to pursue a love interest. Your love nature is Mars-ruled, which gives energy, and a level of competitiveness, to your social and romantic nature. Unless your Venus in Aries is strongly aspected by Saturn, you have no qualms, thoughts, or practical concerns when you are romantically attracted to someone——you just jump right in. When you want something (or someone), you want it now! Aries has a way of blowing desires out of proportion, with the result that they quickly become needs instead of wants. Your wants, in fact, can eclipse rationality, and there is a bit of a naive quality to your interactions with others.
 
Because your attractions are impulsive, you can be attracted to many different types of people. However, if you are going to share much time with someone, a rather independent type is best for you. Close sharing and intimacy can sometimes try your patience, and a whining or dependent partner will wear you out quickly. You are a highly personal lover, and you can easily become touchy and irritable. You infuse excitement into your relationships and tend to get bored fairly easily. But you are also highly demonstrative and open in matters of the heart, and your lover will appreciate this directness and spontaneity.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Aries:
Sparks fly! There can be much enthusiasm in this relationship, but a clash of wills is likely, because both you and your partner want instant gratification and a certain emotional moodiness will predominate. Your cycles won’t always coordinate, so there can be many ups and downs in this relationship. The passion, however, will not be wanting! In bed, when we mix fire and fire, neither of you is inclined to be receptive. Instead, you challenge each other. Look to Mars signs to see if there is a better balance of yin and yang. You are open-minded and pleasure-minded as well——and you have met your match! Each of you finds the conquest exciting, so in order to keep your relationship fresh, you might want to recreate or create new and interesting adventures. In fact, it is likely that you will do that naturally. You are confrontational lovers who are not afraid of arguments. In fact, if things become too peaceful, you might just stir the pot a little in order to get things going. Love, for you both, needs to accomplish something. It needs to be refreshed and stoked, prodded and poked, and it needs to have movement. It would be wise for you to give each other a little space, and when you are together, use your abundant energies to make things happen. Your relationship is likely to be intense and even combative at times, but it will be lively and exciting simply because both of you need it to be!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
You crave instant gratification in love, while your Venus in Taurus partner is more than capable of taking things slow. You can benefit each other by balancing each other out, as you have markedly different styles and needs in love. You see in your partner what you lack, and vice versa. However, both of you are rather me-centered in your approach to love and this can be a difficult combination as a result. Stubbornness and clashes of will are more than likely to pepper your relationship over time. You might find your partner a tad slow, or even dull, in his or her approach to romance. Your lover is very focused on sensual pleasures and comforts, while your style is more utilitarian. Your peace-loving partner looks for harmony in his or her environment, but “harmony” looks rather monotonous in your eyes. This is a very passionate pairing, and you are likely to be the leader or aggressor in this relationship. Still, however receptive he or she is, your partner is nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in his or her own right! Your lover is strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge your partner out of his or her chosen position or stance. Although side-by-side signs are very dissimilar, the fact that we are matching yin with yang (or + with -) adds some wonderful attraction and sexual excitement to the mix. This is a powerful liaison, and although it can be challenging to get things right, you enjoy a challenge!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
Love for both of you is equated with fun. You and your partner want to be active in your relationship, and neither of you is happy if your partnership enters a boring zone. You should be pleased with the amount of independence granted to you from each other. Together, your enthusiasm is infectious. Your partner is more intellectual than you are, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, he or she can be brought to the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with each other. You do enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticket——in fact, if the talk drags on too long, you find it mind-numbing! The key here will be to stay active with each other, being careful not to ride too high on the enthusiastic energy you two generate when together, at the expense of enjoying each other in quiet ways once in a while. You can easily become impatient with your partner’s indecisiveness. As well, you may find it disconcerting when your partner’s conversations invariably stray from the most favorite topic——you! Probably the biggest problem in your partnership is a sense of instability. You react to each other very impulsively, and neither of you is given to setting goals for your partnership. Living in the moment certainly infuses a sense of playfulness and fun into your relationship that is enviable, but your relationship may not always feel dependable. In fact, your powerful attraction to each other often runs hot and cold. Harnessing the energy and passion of your combined energies will not be easy, but if you can slow down once in a while and enjoy each other, this relationship can be both invigorating and rich.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This combination definitely makes for a bit of an odd couple! Your Venus is Mars-ruled, while your partner’s is Moon-ruled. There is a distinct difference between what is important to you in love, and what your partner considers important. You ride high on spontaneity, and you are quite open in your expression of feelings, if not a little erratic. Your partner tends to take his or her time when it comes to both expressing feelings and moving a relationship forward. Your partner is often defensive with feelings, while you are configured to be on the offence much of the time! At first, your markedly different styles can be wildly attractive. Later, your differences can prove to be a bone of contention. Tenderness is important to your lover, but you express love in a more direct, aggressive manner. Your assertive style can border on being downright inconsiderate at times, at least in your partner’s eyes, which is the polar opposite of how he or she treats a loved one! You want instant gratification and don’t have much patience for beating around the bush, but your lover often requires others to gently and subtly coax him or her to open up and express feelings. What it boils down to is a difference in styles of expressing love and affection, and understanding that your styles are often dramatically different can go a long way toward harmony. If you are willing to learn from each other, you may become an expert at infusing your relationship with energy and excitement, and your partner can offer the support and security that doesn’t come quite as naturally to you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
Both of you are spirited lovers. With both of your Venuses in fire signs, you and your partner approach love in a fiery, direct manner. Sparks fly between you! Each of you falls in love quickly and intuitively, although your partner tends to take love a little more seriously than you do. Both of you are rather me-centered in love, which of course can be somewhat problematic! You and your Venus in Leo lover are competitive folk——just be sure you don’t compete with each other too much. Friendly competition can be invigorating, however, and can help maintain the vigor and excitement you both crave in love. You admire each other a great deal, although your pride may not allow you to show that admiration all the time. Because your temperaments in love are similar in many ways, when the relationship is good, it’s very good; when the relationship is bad, it’s very bad! The ego-stroking and flattery that your partner craves may not always be forthcoming with you, because you incline to be somewhat blunt and unpolished in style. Your partner is likely to appreciate your simple charm, or find it infuriating. Probably it’s a bit of both! Your partner’s style of expression in love is certainly more flowery. Chances are just as good that you will find your partner exciting and infuriating at the same time! Let your lover know how special he or she is, but in order for this to work, he or she will definitely need to share the spotlight once in a while. You are both strong people in love, and you can have a lot of fun together.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
Here, we are mixing Fire (you!) and Earth (Virgo – your partner!). It’s not an easy combination, for certain, but it has its merits. One of the most noticeable differences between you and your partner is your need for stimulation and excitement contrasted with your partner’s desire for safety and security. You can be quite active together, and pour some energy into activities, but your impulsive and competitive nature may leave your partner feeling insecure at times. You’ll need to take the time, every once in a while, to reassure your lover, and let him or her know how much you appreciate them. Both of you are simple in your needs, but those needs are markedly different. You are not the most flowery of lovers, and neither is your partner, but your lover might find you downright insensitive at times. He or she is a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. He or she will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but your lover does want some appreciation for all of his or her efforts. Both of you value honesty, and you’ll generally get it from each other. You will likely be flattered by your partner’s willingness to please, in the moments when you stop to notice this trait. Money matters will most certainly bring some conflict, as your partner is more cautious and a natural worrier and you can be the classic impulse buyer. Shared interests are important to your partner, and this may also be a problem, as you and your partner are really quite dissimilar! However, love can make this combination work, especially if both of you take the time to learn from the other.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Here we have a case of “opposites attract”! The attraction to each other can be very powerful, mainly because each of you seems to offer what the other lacks. Your direct——even aggressive——approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your partner’s life, as he or she tends toward indecision. It’s a stark contrast to your partner’s more passive, mental approach to love. Note that your Venusian rulers are Venus and Mars! This promises much excitement. Your partnership may be better if it’s an affair rather than a long-standing relationship, as the differences between you that spark the initial attraction can grow to be difficult over time. However, with love and understanding, this relationship can work! Your partner is a somewhat dependent creature, while you are much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your lover’s indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because you don’t have vast stores of patience to wait. If you see someone (or something) you like, you’ll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and you figure that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. Your partner, on the other hand, notoriously takes his or her time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, your lover values reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as he or she is when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active persona in the sense that you definitely need a partner who will compromise, but your partner may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, you don’t always listen to reason——you are more impulsive. The best bet for long-term compatibility with this pairing would be to open your hearts to each other and learn. Somewhere between your polar opposites is a balance. If you can’t find that point, your relationship may very well turn into a game of tug-of-war.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
An unusual combination, but very intriguing when two powerful Venus placements come together! The attraction can be exciting, but harmony can be difficult to attain. You are direct while your partner is more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido fluctuates tremendously, and your partner’s is constant. You live for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but your partner has an eye on commitment and constancy. Sexually, you are likely to have a powerful union, but emotionally there can be difficulties because your styles of expressing love and affection are so contrary. Perhaps this combination is better when the relationship is shorter term——the memory of your times together could be powerful. Still, this combination can work in a committed, long-term relationship with heaps of love and understanding. Adjustments will most surely have to be made. Butting heads is something you are likely to do, as both of you want your way in relationships, but both of you will have to learn to concede to each other now and again! Passions will run high, and if you can harness that energy and put it to work for your relationship in a positive way, then the union will be satisfying indeed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Because both of you fall in love intuitively, almost on impulse, your relationship is almost certain to start quickly. Neither of you takes the time to evaluate potential partners on practical levels. Your interest is aroused suddenly and is based usually on pure infatuation and attraction, and the same goes for your Venus in Sagittarius partner. We are mixing two fiery Venus placements here, and this can make for a very stimulating——even invigorating——pairing. For the most part, you will inspire each other, and mutual encouragement is more than likely. Love for both of you needs to be active and growth-oriented. Your partner may be more intellectual than you, enjoying sharing his or her philosophies with you perhaps more than you would do naturally. Neither of you is afraid of a good heated debate, or outright argument, so tempers may flare at times, but neither of you is one to hold grudges and you both are willing to move forward and forget about problems easily. Both of you love to laugh and play with your partners, and neither of you likes to be tied down. Giving each other space is important, but it is likely to come naturally for both of you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
The differences in your styles of expressing love should be pretty obvious right from the start. This can be a source of much fascination, and some misunderstandings as well. Your partner’s relationship needs are decidedly more practical and earthy than yours. In matters of the heart, you act first and think later. Your partner considers all of the ins and outs of the partnership: is it practical? Will it work down the road? Do you work well with each other? None of these things are quite as important to you, as you tend to think in the here and now, while your partner is future-minded. If you share your finances with your Venus in Capricorn lover, he or she will certainly help curb your habit for impulsive spending, and whether you appreciate that depends entirely on you! You might find your partner a little too serious at times, but hopefully he or she will enjoy the fact that you are capable of infusing relationships with fun and activity. Because you are more forthright in love, it is likely you will be responsible for getting this relationship going, but if you think you can always be the leader, you might have another thing coming! Yes, your partner is definitely more cautious with his or her heart than you are, but your lover has a reserve of strength that is mighty indeed. You might see your partner as somewhat of a challenge, but you find challenges in love exciting. Some clashes are inevitable, but with understanding and love, this relationship can work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
In most cases, this combination inspires mutual respect and appreciation. Both of you are generally positive in matters of the heart, so optimism is likely the result when you are together. Your partner is somewhat unpredictable when it comes to expressions of love, and you are more likely to appreciate the “quirkiness” than most Venusian signs, simply because you enjoy challenges and the feeling that a relationship is “alive”. Furthermore, your lover’s unconventionality can be quite attractive to you. While others might complain that Venus in Aquarius can be a little too aloof, you are more apt to see that trait as a challenge——and rise to it! The only difficulty with all of this is that your desires in love are quite variable, and when they’re turned on, you want love and you want it right now. If your partner happens to be off on a tangent, seemingly in another world, you can quickly become impatient. However, both of you will give the other enough space to breathe, probably because you need some independence too. With your Venusian signs in a sextile with one another, you are likely to appreciate and respect each other, off-moods aside.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
The attraction can be intense at first, but your inherent differences in matters of the heart might get the better of your relationship in the long run. With understanding and patience, however, this partnership can be very rewarding. You are more than likely the one to take the lead in this relationship. Your partner can be somewhat shy and unsure with someone new, but very charming indeed. He or she has a dreamy quality that can be very enticing. But this very quality that hooks your interest in your partner in the first place, might get you impatient once the novelty fades away! Your partner’s elusiveness and downright evasiveness stands in stark contrast to your style of expressing love——so much so that it could seem completely alien to you. You are direct and forthright with your partners, and usually appreciate the same in others. Your partner doesn’t always seem very clear, and this confuses you. If the love is there, all that is needed is the understanding that you and your partner express love in distinctly different ways. As well, you should know that your lover enjoys understatement in romance. Your bluntness may be appreciated by less sensitive souls, but this one can find it difficult to understand. Your partner, in turn, should learn to appreciate knowing exactly where he or she stands with you! You have much to offer each other once you get past the matter of differing love “styles”.
 
If your Venus is in Taurus:
When your Venus is in Taurus, your needs in love are largely determined by the pleasing of your senses. The first of the earth signs, Taurus is very physical. You are sensually inclined—not sensation-oriented like Aries, but rather keenly tuned in to the world of the physical five senses. (The sixth sense belongs to the Water signs!) To understand the Venusian Taurus nature, it is helpful to think of three “S” words that Taurus values: sensuality, stability, and satisfaction.
 
You are somewhat conventional in matters of the heart, with a strong sense of commitment and purpose. You are not romantic in a frilly or dreamy way, yet you certainly have the sense of the romantic when it comes to honouring others and surrounding partnerships in simple luxuries. You are practical, and relationships are taken seriously. This does not necessarily mean that you are incapable of having one-night-stands or the like, but a partnership means a lot to you and you don’t take your responsibilities lightly. You have a strong, constant love nature, and you offer loved ones much comfort in your stability. You seek out security through partnership. You tend to hold on to partnerships, and you place basic security needs over emotional or spiritual needs. As a result, others may see you as a rock, or they can easily get frustrated that you overlook the nuances of the relationship, depending on the audience.
 
Your tastes are well-developed, and you prefer to surround yourself with things that feel luxurious and comfortable, yet simple. Your taste in home decor reflects your own love nature! Satisfaction is important to you, and your lover’s physical presence is demanded. Unless Venus is strongly aspected to Neptune, for example, you are very much concerned with all that is physical, often completely ignoring the spiritual needs of your partner and relationship. You are persevering and you are not afraid to wait if you know you are likely to get your prize! Changes make you unsettled, and you react to any sudden changes in the course of your relationship by digging in your heels.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
While you are more than capable of taking things slow, your partner craves instant gratification in love. You can benefit each other by balancing each other out, as you have markedly different styles and needs in love. You see in your partner what you lack, and vice versa. However, both of you are rather me-centered in your approach to love and this can be a difficult combination as a result. Stubbornness and clashes of will are more than likely to pepper your relationship over time. Because your partner gets off on excitement and challenge, he or she might find you a tad slow, or even dull, in your approach to romance. You are very focused on sensual pleasures and comforts, while your lover’s style is more utilitarian. You are a peace lover (although you won’t shrink from any argument), and you look for harmony in your environment, but “harmony” looks rather monotonous in your partner’s eyes. This is a very passionate pairing, and your partner, at least on the surface of things, is likely to be the leader or aggressor in this relationship. Still, however receptive you are, you are nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in your own right! You are strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge you out of your chosen position or stance. Although side-by-side signs are very dissimilar, the fact that we are matching yin with yang (or + with -) adds some wonderful attraction and sexual excitement to the mix. This is a powerful liaison, and although it can be challenging to get things right, you are not afraid of, and your partner actually enjoys, a challenge!
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Taurus:
Your similarities in terms of needs and styles in love can be both pleasing and difficult. Both of you are earthy, sensual lovers. Love for you both is a tangible, sensual experience, and neither of you takes relationships lightly. Safety and comfort are important in your love relationships, and your partner feels the same way. You will more than likely agree about what to spend your money on, if you share finances, and how to decorate your home, if you share space. Because you are alike in matters of the heart, however, there can be some difficulties with clashes of will and stubbornness. Both of you are rather passive, although magnetic, so it may be a little difficult to get things off the ground. Certainly, if things do get off the ground, the relationship has a powerful chance to last. There may be a tendency to inactivity when you are together, simply because each of you is rather self-satisfied and content. Watch that the relationship doesn’t get itself into a rut, and that communication is kept alive. Nevertheless, your shared commitment, tastes, and needs can help cement a relationship that is rewarding to you both.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it’s because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! You are a steady person in love, very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. Your partner tends to live in the moment when it comes to love, and is an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. Your partner values verbal exchanges, while you value stability and security. Your lover shows his or her love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. You, on the other hand, are less concerned about variety and fun than you are with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to you, and both constancy and physical presence do as well. Your partner might complain that you take what he/she says seriously, and wants to hold him or her to it. Your partner’s moods and wants change at a moment’s notice, and he or she doesn’t like being pinned down. When you are in need of regeneration, you tend to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When your lover is distressed or out of whack, he or she wants to be able to talk it through. He or she enjoys new experiences and environments, while you are not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when your partner is unsure, he or she can find great strength in you; and you can certainly enjoy your partner’s wit and social ease—he or she is wonderful company.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
You instantly sense a seriousness and warmth in your partner that you are drawn to. The dependability your partner senses in your style appeals to him or her as well. You are a person your partner can truly feel safe and comfortable with, and that is important for him or her. You will appreciate your partner’s warmth, as much of it is tangible. Although your partner tends to be the more emotional of the two, you can help your partner to feel more secure than most people. Security is most important to both of you! The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned and too predictable. You don’t readily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and your partner is certainly an intuitive person. Your Venus in Cancer partner sometimes needs to be pushed and prodded in order to open up, and because that does not come naturally to you, communication can suffer as a result. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and your partner might feel you are a little too stubborn for his or her liking. You revel in sensual pleasures, as does your partner, and ultimately you are most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please your partner! Once your partner has gained your trust and loyalty, you can be like the Rock of Gibraltar——you could be exactly what your partner needs to steady his or her sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe his or her fears. It would be wise to try to understand your partner’s occasional moodiness in love. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
Your partner senses your steadfastness and staying power, admiring your strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be somewhat flirtatious and playful, and you might misinterpret this behavior as disloyalty. You are inclined to be somewhat possessive, but you must understand that your partner is actually quite loyal. He or she simply enjoys attention. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means each of you tends to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and your partner senses that you will give him or her just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. Your partner might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama (“I absolutely need to buy this”). The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although you appreciate the finer things in life, just like your partner does, you put more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love…ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your partner’s willingness to make adjustments. You tend to be a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that your partner offers any relationship. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, you are more capable of calming your partner’s nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make him or her feel whole and scads more comfortable in his or her own skin. Your partner is sure to appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds you. You sense your lover’s commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to your partner in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and you always appreciate this work ethic, although you have to watch that your partner doesn’t take on too much of the hard work. Although your lover is rather humble in matters of the heart, he or she needs to feel appreciated.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take a rather practical and earthy approach to love, your partner inclines to be intellectual about it (your lover thinks and talks a lot about his or her relationship). All too often, Earth signs (including Taurus), interpret the intellectual approach to love typical of Air signs as either lacking in sincerity or disloyalty. Your lover can easily become frustrated with your seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. You are sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time your partner invests in your relationship, although you may eventually question whether his or her approach is actually getting results. You see, you are far more interested in what works in love——what you see in tangible terms. What “could be”, “would be”, or “might be” doesn’t pull much weight with you. With a natural inclination to see where a relationship needs adjustment, your partner is usually more than willing to compromise—a trait that might be considered a necessity with you, as you are not the most flexible of lovers. Your partner’s thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied attitude. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful. Mutual respect and tolerance will be important in order to make this partnership work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnerships———or each other———easily. Your partner tends to be more intense about his or her attachments than you are, and your overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your partner’s emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other’s strong personality and willingness to commit. Your partner senses in you the ability to “go the distance”, and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to both of you, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. You may find your partner overly complex, while your partner might consider your needs too simple! Your desire is for peace and stability, while your partner thrives on boat-rocking from time to time. Your partner tends to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
The connection between the two of you may seem a bit odd, due to vastly different styles and needs in love, but understanding and compromise can make it work. Your partner enjoys having fun in love, and is capable of infusing your relationship with heaps of excitement. Excitement in a partnership is not as important to you. In fact, in your book, stability and predictability are attractive qualities of any partnership. Your partner is a risk-taker in love (and finances!), while you tend to play it safe. You dig in your heels and get comfortable, and your partner has his or her sights on bigger things. A tendency to believe that the grass is always greener somewhere else is something that can easily frustrate you, as your needs are quite simple and contentment is your goal. Your possessiveness can create serious problems in this partnership. Your partner is a much happier and giving person when he or she feels free. Enjoy your partner’s spirited attitude toward love and partnership. At the same time, it would be wise for your lover to understand your desire for security. Giving your partner the freedom to be himself or herself, and vice versa, will be the key to the success of this relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other’s interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart (and the bank account) can do wonders for any partnership. Your partner is more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and he or she may sometimes find you a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to the both of you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! You are somewhat more traditional in your view of partnerships. You value constancy and dependability in your relationships. On the other hand, your partner resists doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new track rather than traveling along the “beaten track”. You want your love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. Your partner knows how to stick with things, as you do, and isn’t especially attracted to complications as well. However, he or she doesn’t find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn’t seem to be going somewhere. Ideally, you’ll find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your partner’s quirkiness can be fun and even electric. You can remind your partner how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. You are strong and dependable in relationships———perhaps exactly what your partner needs, at least most of the time! Your lover doesn’t always feel strong, simply because he or she is a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as yourself will help ground your lover. He or she is certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships. You might find that your lover views your dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on his or her mood. Sometimes, your lover considers you to be a bit too set in your ways. Other times, he or she will fully appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your needs in partnership. Your partner is likely to take great comfort in knowing that he or she can lean on you when need be. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. You might sometimes complain that your lover is indecisive or too changeable—moody, perhaps. But if you recognize that his or her tenderness (something that you are sure to value) is an absolute constant, you are sure to “overlook” his or her seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well.
 
If your Venus is in Gemini:
When your Venus is in Gemini, you look for lively relationships with plenty of activity and communication. When you are in love, you make light and witty company, even if your Sun is in a more serious sign like Taurus or Cancer. You look for a partner who can hold a real conversation. Scratch that——you want somebody who can talk about multiple subjects in a short period of time. When you’re in love, you can be a real tease! You flirt, joke, and cajole—and you turn others on with the promise that love will be fun with you.
 
I’d like to take this opportunity to address the reputation Gemini has for being somewhat dishonest. Evasive, yes, but dishonest is off the mark. Venusian Geminis are not in touch with their feelings enough to give a concrete answer when they are cornered. Or perhaps you can say that they are so mentally stimulated that they are more aware than most of all of the possible answers or reasons. So, if you are asked by your partner, “Why have you been avoiding me?”, for example, your answer may seem to have been pulled out of a hat. The truth is, you don’t always know the answer right away, but you are so communicative that a response comes out of you anyhow. Neither are you the type to excuse yourself to soul-search, then get back to your lover with a meaningful answer. You’re always quick to reply. This quality is often misinterpreted as insincerity.
 
You are not the most sentimental of lovers, although you do have a wonderful way with words. You value exchanging and sharing ideas in a partnership, and a good conversation makes powerful foreplay for you! Your urge for freedom and variety in love, coupled with a tendency to skirt intense topics, can lead some partners to think that you’re as substantial as cotton candy. Although some Venus in Gemini people go through lovers like Kleenex, just to avoid the frightening thought of having to commit oneself to only one partner, most are very capable of loyalty in the long-term. They simply want their relationships to be interesting. Commitment, to you, doesn’t mean things have to be dull.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
Love for both of you is equated with fun. You and your partner want to be active in your relationship, and neither of you is happy if your partnership enters a boring zone. You should be pleased with the amount of independence granted to you from each other. Together, your enthusiasm is infectious. You are more intellectual than your partner, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, you are in the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with your lover. Your partner does enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticket——in fact, if the talk drags on too long, your lover finds it mind-numbing. The key here will be to stay active with each other, being careful not to ride too high on the enthusiastic energy you two generate when together, at the expense of enjoying each other in quiet ways once in a while. Your partner can easily become impatient with your indecisiveness. As well, your partner finds it disconcerting when your conversations stray from the most favorite topic——him/her! Probably the biggest problem in your partnership is a sense of instability. You react to each other very impulsively, and neither of you is given to setting goals for your partnership. Living in the moment certainly infuses a sense of playfulness and fun into your relationship that is enviable, but your relationship may not always feel dependable. In fact, your powerful attraction to each other often runs hot and cold. Harnessing the energy and passion of your combined energies will not be easy, but if you can slow down once in a while and enjoy each other, this relationship can be both invigorating and rich.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it’s because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! Your partner is a steady person in love. He/she is very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. You tend to live in the moment when it comes to love, and are an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. You value verbal exchanges, while your partner values stability and security. You show your love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. Your partner, on the other hand, is less concerned about variety and fun than he/she is with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to your partner. Your constancy and physical presence does as well. You might complain that your partner takes what you say seriously, and wants to hold you to it. Your moods and wants change at a moment’s notice, and you don’t like being pinned down. When your partner is in need of regeneration, he/she tends to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When you are distressed or out of whack, you want to be able to talk it through with your partner. You enjoy new experiences and environments, while your partner is not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when you are down or unsure, you can find great strength in your rock-solid partner; and your partner can certainly enjoy your wit and social ease—you are wonderful company.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Gemini:
Because both of you have similar needs in relationships, your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the Venusian Gemini position! You will be pleased with your partner’s willingness to talk, have fun, and ability to liven up a rainy day. Together you can enjoy some wonderful cerebral moments as well as lighter entertainment. Your relationship is less likely than most to get clouded over with possessiveness or jealousies, although it can certainly run hot and cold at times! Both of you get turned on quickly——and turned off just as rapidly. If you’re not on the same cycle, which is bound to happen from time to time, there can be quite a few stormy moments! For this reason, this pairing is probably more suitable for a shorter affair than a long-term commitment, unless there are stronger connections (some boosts from Saturn, for example) between your charts. Nevertheless, the relationship can be very lively and interesting. Both of you are insatiably curious, and your interests can change quickly. Many partners have difficulty understanding this trait (they can easily find it threatening), but your partner should, at least in theory, identify with you on this level.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, and vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. Your partner has a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. His/her memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding, and extremely flattering! Your partner cherishes you, showering you with his/her concern and caring gestures. Your style in love is more cerebral than your partner’s. Your partner is fascinated with your often cheerful disposition, your flexibility, and your intelligent charm. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. You are flirtatious with your partner, and your teasing is actually a true show of love. Until your partner recognizes this, it can be difficult for him/her to feel nurtured and cared for. Your lover is sensitive in matters of the heart, although he/she doesn’t always want to show it. More than likely, your partner will play along with your lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. You believe that any problem can be solved by talking it through. Your partner will certainly try to work through problems with you, but, in his/her heart, believes in and values a more emotional bond—a bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it is defined with words. Your partner shows love through gestures and commitment, and may leave you wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, you will be able to lean on your lover for emotional support and value his/her ability to make you feel safe. This is important because you can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments in your life. Your partner will appreciate your flexibility more than anything, and reward you with a commitment that is difficult to break. Try to pay more attention to tenderness in your exchanges with your lover, as this can only strengthen the bond between you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful lovers—some might even say childlike! Your love of variety, however, may leave your partner feeling a little threatened, simply because your partner desires to be the center of your attention! When you are in love, you enjoy talking, and your lover will appreciate the easy flow of communication between you. Your partner’s immense need for security in partnership may surface as what appears to be downright jealousy, especially since you don’t appear (to the naked eye, at least) to be the most loyal or steadfast of partners. When your partner feels insecure or threatened, he/she is given to melodrama. Because this is not your nature in love, you don’t fully understand this kind of behavior, and you might even find your partner’s displays somewhat amusing and entertaining! As fun as your partner is at times, constancy is more important to him/her than it is to you. Your lover might interpret your need for variety and stimulation as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and (mostly) positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner’s Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
Because your partner values intelligence and communication in a partner, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Virgo partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to both of you, you may be less discriminating than your partner in terms of who you communicate with——as well as what you talk about. Your partner comes alive in an established relationship. You, on the other hand, require a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to your partner for mental stimulation. This is healthy for you, but it may be somewhat intimidating for your lover, as he/she prefers to be the most indispensable person in your life. You have a rather happy-go-lucky disposition in love, and you love to tease and joke. Your lover tends to be more sensitive in matters of the heart, and might take some of your cajoling a little too seriously for your liking. You thrive on variety, and you tire easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. Your partner is quite restless as well, but is at his/her best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although you can take this to a greater extreme than your partner and this can make him/her feel uncomfortable. If your Venus in Virgo lover begins to question your sincerity and constancy, remind your partner how much you appreciate your relationship. Thoughtfulness might make all the difference!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
This is a lively combination in which communication doesn’t just flow, it bounce and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You will certainly fill your partner’s need for communication, as he/she thrives on feedback. There can be considerable respect between you. You enjoy plenty of social and mental stimulation——the more variety, the better—— and so does your Venusian Libra partner! However, your partner’s focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while you are not so specific in your needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for “air time”. Your partner may complain that you are not as romantic as he/she is, and that you are a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with your wit. You may wonder why your partner seems to need you to spend a lot of time together. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. Nevertheless, this relationship can contain markedly less of the jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperating with each other is a piece of cake!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that “like attracts like” on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers (albeit in completely different ways!), and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious “issues” as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. You are a tease, a flirt. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you flirt with everyone, but you do infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into your relationship. Your partner’s love nature is intense. He or she craves intimacy, and when intimacy is threatened, your partner can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which your partner attempts to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio he or she is. Your partner knows how to push your buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. Your partner wants your soul, not just your body! You have an entirely different view of partnership. You want it to be fun, while your partner will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Your Venus signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac, but you share some similarities. Both of you are lovers of freedom in your relationships, and neither of you will turn down the chance for a stimulating conversation. Although there isn’t always a “meeting of minds” between you two, there definitely will be some passionate discussions. Both you and your partner are somewhat restless, neither lasting long in a relationship that is confining or stuffy. Your partner tends to be more passionate than you in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting his or her partner to adopt the same belief systems, but you share a common love of fun and humor in love. Unless there are strong supporting aspects in synastry, the relationship may be broken impulsively. Both of you benefit from a partner who grounds you and reminds you of the long term. You may not find these qualities in each other. Your partner values honesty from a lover, while you value mental exchanges, period. Restlessness in partnership is something you both share, and it’s best that you try to channel that energy into shared activities, such as traveling, instead of finding holes in your relationship. Remembering that opposites often do attract, this relationship is certainly workable if neither of you clings to your ways self-righteously. Learning from each other, and trying to strike a balance, will pay off. Together, you can easily become inspired.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. You have a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than your partner, and you can certainly help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity. Your partner is rather concerned about commitment, and often plans for the future. He/she is sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. Your partner likes his or her solitude, and you like your space. If you can avoid feeling threatened by your partner’s need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of your many and varied interests, this can work well. This partner is more able to handle your quips and teasing than others, although he or she might complain that your head is in the clouds. His or her feet are definitely on the ground, but your partner does not shy away from ambition. You might find your partner downright boring. This isn’t to say your partner is boring, but you do favor a livelier, more active partner than him or her. Your lover might be inclined to think you are as substantial as cotton candy! It’s all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it’s because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You will find that your partner, more than most people, understands your tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but your partner appreciates your changeability. Your partner, however, is more stubborn than you are. Your moods change quickly, and while your partner can hardly be labeled predictable, he or she is not as flexible as you are. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, you will probably be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterizes your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while you work on keeping things fresh, your partner will help steady you. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your desire for communication is strong, and your partner, too, wants to connect with a partner. However, you put more value in mental stimulation and your partner values the power of understatement in romance. While you prefer everything to be defined, your partner has a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. Your partner relies on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering him or her for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won’t get you very far——perhaps only frustrated! Your energy leaves your partner unsettled at times, while his or her elusiveness can be difficult for you to understand. Your playfulness may, at times, unnerve your rather sensitive partner, although he or she is generally forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairing—both of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other’s needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.
 
If your Venus is in Cancer:
When your Venus is in Cancer, you look for security and safety in partnership. You are the most caring and nurturing of lovers. Your lover is likely to be flattered by your excellent memory for all they say and do——in some cases, he or she could be intimidated as well! Sincerity from your partner is important to you, and you are attracted to people who you consider to be natural and genuine. You are the most intuitive of lovers, finding it easy to “read” your partner’s character and feelings. As mentioned above, this can be flattering to many, and cause for concern for others! Which, of course, is fine by you, because the ideal partner for you is comfortable in his or her own skin. Anyone threatened by your “feelers” may not be sincere enough for you!
 
Appreciation, security, and tenderness are most important to you in matters of the heart. You work hard at accommodating the people you love, taking care of them in every way you can. Because you are not very comfortable with confrontations, you are prone to side-stepping problems. You are easily hurt, but you can work hard at concealing that fact. It is difficult for you to forget any kinds of actions that you consider betrayals on the part of your lover, but you are not one to run away from your commitments. You would benefit from expressing your hurts instead of letting them stew inside of you. In many cases, your partner may not even know that they’ve hurt you!
 
Your charm is of the understated kind, and you may not always know just how attractive you are to others! The truth is, no matter how you come across, you fairly ooze sweetness to members of the opposite sex. Of course, not everyone will find that quality attractive, but to those that do, you can be irresistible. It can be difficult for people to stay angry with you. This may be because you have mastered the “art” of playing innocent! You are especially attracted to neediness, and you might work hard at keeping the people you love in a state of needing you. Their dependency on you feeds you, making you feel loved, but you can have a love-hate relationship with that dependency over time. In some cases, Venus in Cancer people might wonder if they’ve created a monster! You do get off on taking care of your lover, often at the expense of your own needs. It would be helpful if you could detach yourself from some of the problems of your loved ones, even just a little, and recognize that you are not responsible for others’ happiness. This concept is difficult for you to learn. You understand it, but living by it is a completely different thing. You observe your partner very closely, and the love you offer holds the rare quality of cherishing.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
This combination definitely makes for a bit of an odd couple! Your Venus is Moon-ruled, while your partner’s is Mars-ruled. There is a distinct difference between what is important to you in love, and what your partner considers important. Your partner rides high on spontaneity, and is quite open in his or her expression of feelings, if not a little erratic. You tend to take your time when it comes to both expressing feelings and moving a relationship forward. You are often defensive with your feelings, while your partner is configured to be on the offence much of the time! At first, your markedly different styles can be wildly attractive. Later, your differences can prove to be a bone of contention. Tenderness is important to you, but your partner expresses love in a more direct, aggressive manner. His or her assertive style can border on being downright inconsiderate, which is the polar opposite of how you treat a loved one! Your lover wants instant gratification and doesn’t have much patience for beating around the bush, but you often require others to gently and subtly coax you to open up and express your feelings. What it boils down to is a difference in styles of expressing love and affection, and understanding that your styles are often dramatically different can go a long way toward harmony. If you are willing to learn from each other, your partner may become an expert at infusing your relationship with energy and excitement, and you can offer the support and security that doesn’t come naturally to your partner.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
The dependability you sense in your Venus in Taurus lover is appealing to you. This is a person you can truly feel safe and comfortable with. Your partner will appreciate your warm, even practical style of expressing love. Although you tend to be the more emotional of the two, your partner can help you to feel more secure than most signs. The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned, and too predictable. Your partner doesn’t easily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and is not as intuitive as you are. He or she is not the type who will push and prod you to open up, and as a result, communication can suffer. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and you might feel your partner is a little too stubborn for your liking. He or she revels in sensual pleasures, as do you, and ultimately is most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please you! Once you’ve gained his or her trust and loyalty, your lover can be like the Rock of Gibraltar——he or she might be exactly what you need to steady your sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe your fears. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, as well as vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. You have a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. Your memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding! You cherish your partner, showering him or her with your concern and caring gestures. Your partner’s style in love is more cerebral, and his or her cheerful disposition, flexibility, and intelligent charm can fascinate you. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. Your partner is flirtatious with you, and his or her teasing is actually a true show of love. Until you recognize this, it can be difficult for you to feel nurtured and cared for. You are sensitive in matters of the heart, although you don’t always want to show it. More than likely, you will play along with your partner’s lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. Your partner believes that any problem can be solved by talking it through. You will certainly try to work through problems, but, in your heart, you believe in and value a more emotional bond——a bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it were to be defined with words. You show love through practical gestures as well as commitment, and may leave your partner wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, your partner will be able to lean on you for emotional support and will value your ability to make him or her feel safe. This is important because your partner can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments. You are likely to appreciate your partner’s flexibility more than anything, and you will reward your lover with a commitment that is difficult to break. Your partner needs to consciously pay more attention to tenderness in his or her exchanges with you, as this can only serve to strengthen the bond between you.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Cancer:
Both of you are protective, caring lovers. Because you share the same Venusian sign, both of your strengths and your weaknesses in relationships are highlighted! Sentimentality will run high in your partnership. Others will find you the most caring, sweetest of couples. You are inclined to dote on one another, offering sympathy to your partner, and gathering sympathy from him or her as well. The problem can be too much of a good thing! All of that mothering each other probably needs a bit of structure and discipline or you could get carried away with emotions. Both of you are moody in love, and in terms of sensitivity, you’ve met your match! You are likely to agree on commitment to family and security, and you’ll be very devoted to each other. There is a tendency for both of you to be somewhat shy in love, and, as a result, this relationship may be a little difficult to initiate or get off the ground. However, once you’re past the perhaps awkward initial phases of the romance, and you are sure of your mutual feelings, commitment to one another is easy and solid.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
While you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and settled, your partner thrives on——and wants to be consumed with——the desire and passion of love. Your lover easily feels threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down! You demonstrate your love in subtle ways, revealing sincere concern about how your partner is doing and tending to his or her basic emotional needs. Your partner will appreciate this attention and your sentimentality, but might feel threatened by your lack of “showiness”. Your partner might find your mood swings in love rather disconcerting, and you may question your lover’s commitment, finding his or her flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Your partner is, in reality, fiercely loyal, and flirtatiousness is actually fueled by the need for flattery as well as an infatuation with feeling attractive. Until you understand and accept this, you can easily find your partner’s behavior distressing! Your subtle, and oftentimes indirect, approach in love can be confusing for your more frank and direct partner. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs and planets! Because these signs are “next door neighbors”, they don’t share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship…for you, to build a sense of safety and comfort, and for your partner, to build confidence. What you need to understand is that your lover has his or her ego tied up in relationships–your partner lives for love and romance! You will appreciate your lover’s sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your partner’s appetite for attention and affection, you more than anyone are likely to make him or her feel special.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationship——perhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner’s mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environment——exactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner’s approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. You express your love in a distinctly personal manner, while your partner is definitely more intellectually inclined, and his or her manner can seem particularly impersonal in your eyes. Your partner is adept at honing in on what you need and what makes you uncomfortable——so much so that he or she might change their style completely in order to keep the peace. Your partner will quickly feel you out and get to know that you are a more sensitive soul than most. The risk here is that both of you might compromise your own needs in order to avoid hurting each other’s feelings, thereby maintaining the status quo. Both of you value harmony. You are capable of putting up huge walls around yourself, and communication is utterly critical to your partner’s sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more your partner presses you partner for the feedback he or she thrives on, the more you may be inclined to withdraw. As charming as your partner is, he or she might be able to coax you out of your shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. Your partner will find you extraordinarily caring and supportive, and you will be thrilled at how willing your lover is to accommodate you and to compromise!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similar——and familiar——vein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel “at home”. Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to your partner, and you sense an all-encompassing love in your lover that appeals to you. At times, that love can feel all-consuming, but this doesn’t scare you like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love you give is rather similar, and your Venus in Scorpio lover doesn’t fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, he or she lives for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your reaction to hurts is often internalized, while your partner can grow cold and unresponsive when he or she feels slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
This is a confusing combination, although it has the potential to be very stimulating if you are willing to accept each other for who you are, and learn from one another! While you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and secure, your partner is unhappy when a relationship becomes too predictable or confining. You show your love through your attention and caring, and this wonderful quality can sometimes feel lost on your more free-wheeling partner. Relationships that support growth in all directions are what gets your partner high and happy. He or she needs to feel like you are headed somewhere, and that the journey will be a fulfilling one both physically and mentally. Facing up to intense emotional issues or problems in the relationship is not your partner’s best quality, but it is certainly your department! Intimacy, for you, is intoxicating. Rejection is your worst fear! If the love is there, your partner is certainly capable of committing, but his or her style may rub you the wrong way until you understand that it is just that——a style. Freedom and energy are important “ingredients” in a satisfying relationship in your lover’s eyes, and no amount of coercing or theatrics will change those needs. However, if you can put some faith (one of Sagittarius’ favorite words!) in your partner, and give him or her some freedom of movement, you won’t feel the need for tactics in order to keep your lover with you. If this relationship is allowed the time and space to grow, you can have some great fun with your lover, and he or she can certainly benefit from your more tender, emotional touch.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
Opposites attract, and you and your partner’s Venus (love) signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while your partner is more practically inclined. He or she prefers to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of “feeling each other out”, and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each other——you in a nurturing way and your partner in a practical sense. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other’s differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your “lists” in the relationship department!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. You want a relationship that is very personal and committed, while your partner is more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination of the differences between you. There’s a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a softer charm, while your partner’s charm is a little more direct and offbeat. Your partner’s behavior can be unsettling to you, simply because you are looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. Your lover is a freedom-lover, and his or her love may seem universal and impersonal——the style doesn’t hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that you crave. Your tendency to wrap yourself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating for your Venus in Aquarius partner, but can cause a problem if your lover interprets it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other’s needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this pairing going.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. You want to take care of the people you love, offering them security and love, and your partner is particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is this fundamental difference between your love natures: you are more clannish and personal in your affections, while your partner tends toward universal love. The sensitivity he or she expresses doesn’t always make you feel special, as you sometimes may sense that your partner is in love with mankind in general, not just you! You may find yourself desiring to redirect your partner’s love into more focused channels. He or she may easily fall for the underdog, and you may feel that your partner needs a little directing in this respect. You, too, are attracted to the needy, but you have met, in your Venus in Pisces lover, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and you may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that can be a little disconcerting! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It’s an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable.
 
If your Venus is in Leo:
When your Venus is in Leo, you can be “stuck” in the first stage of romance, when passions run high and you can’t seem to get each other out of your minds. You never want this stage to end! When you are in love, the relationship consumes you. You radiate the love that you receive from your partner, and reverberate with the energy of love. You are ardent and affectionate with your partner. The adoration you give may not be (and probably won’t be) matched, and this is when you falter. Truth is, your lover may have a different style of expressing his/her love. It may be just as ardent as your love, but you tend to equate adoring expressions of love with love itself.
 
You tend to hold on to love, sometimes longer than you perhaps should, and you may work hard on forcing your lover into the script you have unconsciously written for him or her! When you are happy with your lover (which often coincides with your perception that your lover is right there with you in an emotional sense), you are generous to a fault, with little thought of the future. You take the ups and downs of your romantic relationships to heart, more so than most people, simply because you invest so much of your ego and identity into love! Your warmth is extremely dependent upon the amount of attention and affection you receive. Although you may begin relationships with considerable ardency, if you are not showered with attention and made to feel special over the course of time, you will surely lose passion for the relationship. Your need for appreciation from your lover is paramount, yet all too often you come on strong in love and your partner misinterprets your ardor as brazen confidence. This can be a vicious circle, because what your lover may not know is that, in fact, you are not as sure of yourself as you seem, and his or her reassurances are vital! It is easy for you to jump into relationships without too much thought. However, your expectations are high, and your partner needs to understand that for a relationship with you to survive over the long haul, it needs to be stoked constantly. You will hang on to a relationship longer than most, but your expectations are so high that disappointment is almost inevitable. More than most signs, you would benefit from waiting to marry when you are older and more sure of yourself. When you’re happy in your relationship, your warmth and eagerness are admirable!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
Both of you are spirited lovers. You and your partner approach love in a fiery, direct manner. Sparks fly between you! Both of you fall in love quickly, although you tend to take love a little more seriously than your partner does. Both of you are rather me-centered in love, which of course can be somewhat problematic! You and your Venus in Aries lover are competitive folk—just be sure you don’t compete with each other too much. Friendly competition can be invigorating, however, and can help maintain the vigor and excitement you both crave in love. You admire each other a great deal, although your pride may not allow you to show that admiration all the time. Because your temperaments in love are similar in many ways, when the relationship is good, it’s very good; when the relationship is bad, it’s very bad! The ego-stroking and flattery that you crave may not always be forthcoming with your Venus in Aries partner, who inclines to be somewhat blunt and unpolished in style. You may appreciate the simple charm of your partner, or find it infuriating. Probably it’s a bit of both! Your style of expression in love is certainly more flowery. Chances are just as good that your partner will find you exciting and infuriating at the same time!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
You value your partner’s steadfastness and staying power. You admire his or her strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be quite possessive, and might misinterpret your flirtatiousness as disloyalty, however. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means both of you tend to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and you sense that your partner will give you just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. You might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama (“I absolutely need to buy this”). The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although your partner appreciates the finer things in life, just like you do, he/she puts more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem is a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful lovers—some might even say childlike! You want to be the center of attention, and your partner’s love of variety may leave you feeling a bit threatened. Your partner loves to talk, and you appreciate the easy flow of communication between you and your partner. However, you might find your partner somewhat lacking in the loyalty and steadfastness department! You need to feel secure in your partnership. When you are feeling insecure about your relationship, you are given to melodrama—something that your Venus in Gemini lover doesn’t fully understand (he/she might even find your displays somewhat amusing and entertaining!). You may interpret your partner’s need for variety as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and (mostly) positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner’s Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
You want to be consumed with the desire and passion of love, and you feel threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down. Your Venus in Cancer partner, on the other hand, loves the security of a “settled” relationship. Your Venus in Cancer partner shows his or her love in a more subtle manner than you do, as he or she tends to your basic emotional needs, often behind the scenes. You will appreciate this attention and his or her sentimentality, but might feel threatened by the lack of “showiness”. You might find your partner’s mood swings in love rather disconcerting, especially when your lover retreats, and your partner may question your commitment, finding your flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Although you are generally fiercely loyal, your need for flattery and your infatuation with flirting may be distressing for your Venus in Cancer lover. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs! Because they are “next door neighbors”, they don’t share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship…for you, to build your confidence, and for your partner, to build a sense of safety and comfort. Your partner will appreciate your sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your appetite for attention and affection, your partner is sure to make you feel special.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Leo:
Oh, the drama! Both of you have similar styles in love, and your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of your mutual Venus placement. On one hand, you will thoroughly enjoy your partner’s intensity and passion. Both of you seem to be forever stuck in the dreamy first stages of romance, yet you also look for security in your partnerships. Your mutual desire for long-lasting romance and passion, as well as security, can be satisfied by one another. On the other hand, you both demand to be center stage in your partnership, and this can cause some problems. If you are in one of your melodramatic moods, who will come to your rescue? Your Venus in Leo partner might, but only if he/she is in that mood. Chances are rather high, however, that your partner will be needing some fawning and special attention too. This can be a love-hate relationship—a David Bowie lyric comes to mind: “when it’s good, it’s really good; and when it’s bad I go to pieces.” Both of you want to feel extra special—you want to be the best in your partner’s eyes. This is a very passionate combination with much potential, but it may at times feel like too much of a good thing.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
In love, you live for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. Your partner, on the other hand, is a little more focused on the future. He/she worries about the practical side of the partnership. You express your love for your partner in a lavish, showy manner. You are consumed with the romance of your relationship, and often expect your partner to feel the same way. Whether or not your Venus in Virgo feels the same way, the manner in which he/she expresses love feelings is distinctly different than your expression. Your partner easily feels threatened by your experience and your occasional bragging sessions. In your desire to be viewed as irresistible, you may inadvertently make your Venus in Virgo partner feel insecure. Remember that he/she expresses love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. Sure, it doesn’t sound exceptionally romantic, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and not something you naturally tend to. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signs—they don’t share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encounters—and so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that your partner is entirely wrapped up in the “we” of your partnership, while you are more concerned about “me”. You will be thrilled that your partner is so very willing to compromise and accommodate you. However, over time, your Venus in Libra partner might refer to his or her mental log and start tallying things up. You see, your partner is very concerned with equality and fairness. Even though your partner is quite willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside and can eventually get the best of your partnership if you’re not careful. Your partner might find you a tad too intense at times, while you might consider your partner somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for your liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where your partner is always running after you, trying to make you happy. It can be all too easy to take advantage of your partner’s desire to keep the peace in your relationship, but remember that he or she is likely to resent a partnership in which the “give and take” is not balanced.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may be a big issue between you. Your partner quickly feels you out and learns your boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water (Scorpio) has the power to put out Fire (Leo). What happens is your natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might be threatening or disconcerting to your Venus in Scorpio partner, and he or she might find it easy to pull you down, or “rain on your parade”. Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When your Venus in Scorpio partner withholds sex, generally because he or she is feeling unloved or unappreciated, you take it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. You will appreciate your partner’s emotional commitment to the relationship, and your lover will respect your strength, as he/she is attracted to intensity—even crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
You and your partner share a fiery approach to love. Both of you fall in love intuitively, without much ado. You share a common love of action and joie de vivre. Any relationship between you is sure to start quickly and passionately. Off to a good start, for certain, but there can be a few snags along the way. You are naturally more loyal than your restless partner, and loyalty from your partner is very important to you. This doesn’t mean that your partner is promiscuous—it simply means that his or her restlessness can intimidate you or leave you feeling insecure. Your partner’s far-sightedness means that he or she isn’t always focused on what is right under his or her nose—namely, you! And, focus on you and your relationship is essential to your basic happiness in love. You most certainly will share some fantastic times together as you fuel each other’s spirits, inspiring each other to reach new heights in love. What you need to understand is that your partner dislikes the feeling of being fenced in. If your partner feels free, he or she is more likely to stay true. Stifle your partner, and your relationship will quickly become volatile. However, this relationship is an especially passionate one that neither of you could forget easily.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
You are insatiably expressive in your love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. Your Venus in Capricorn partner possesses a more steady, practical view of relationships. You have a tendency to dramatize your feelings (you don’t just like something, you adore it; you aren’t simply hurt by what your partner says, you are devastated, etc.). Your partner, on the other hand, is more reserved about his or her feelings and desires. In fact, your Venus in Capricorn partner may find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. Some may question the sincerity behind your demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Remind yourself that the constancy of your partner’s feelings for you are very valuable. Your partner is very much concerned about where your relationship is headed. You, on the other hand, are living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, your lover believes in moderation, and you are inclined to go overboard in both areas. Your ego is tied up in how your partner treats you, and there is the risk that your apparent over-confidence will prompt your lover to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, you are likely to lose interest fast. Your partner needs to understand that you are far more insecure in love than you let on. Your partner values solitude from time to time, and his or her withdrawal is sure to fire you up. Your head is often in the clouds, and your vision of the future is generally positive, while your partner is largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. Your partner might enjoy your ability to brighten up his or her day, and you will love his or her wonderful sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This is the case of “opposites attract”. Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite each other, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! Opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Leo, place great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self, while Aquarius is more concerned with the greater group process. Your partner expresses his or her feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate you. You have a fight or flight reaction–either you see this as a challenge or you run in the opposite direction! You are largely subjective, while your partner is objective. Both of you like to be special and “different”, but you want to be special, in the sense that you want to be the best, in your partner’s eyes. Your partner wants to be valued for his/her uniqueness in terms of the group. You are personal, involved, and intense in your romantic dealings; your partner is impersonal and rather detached. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this “shadow” personality in the other.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. You are direct and generous with your affections. Your Venus in Pisces lover is probably just as generous, but his or her manner of expressing love is markedly different than yours. The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing (Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn’t come easily to you). Both of you are incurable romantics. Your style, however, is personal, while your partner’s loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but “universal” may be the best term for your partner’s love nature. You appreciate your lover’s warmth, but his/her indirect and evasive approach is threatening to you. Venus in Pisces lovers seem to be so warm and affectionate, but you can’t help but sense that he/she loves everyone that way, not just you. You need to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin your Venus in Pisces lover down and get that specific attention that you crave (or demand!). You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. You may be flattered by your lover’s sentimentality and dependency. However, when you are unhappy with him or her, you can easily become theatrical. Your lover may interpret your dramas as abusive, which can shock you because you consider your displays honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. Your lover is very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your emotions in a flash. He or she may expect the same in return, but you prefer your lover to be direct and to the point with his or her wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious.
 
If your Venus is in Virgo:
When your Venus is in Virgo, you express love by doing things for, and fussing over, your loved one. You notice little things about your partner, make mental notes of their likes and dislikes (this may sound contrived, but it’s not——it’s simply the way you’re wired!), and genuinely try to help your lover in practical ways. You listen to what your lover has to say, and you have something sensible and intelligent to say in response! In fact, you are great at communicating about your relationship.
 
One dilemma that can easily happen with this position: Your partner doesn’t always know how to please you. You might have a simple answer, but he/she may still wonder. You see all of the details of your relationship. You worry about its viability, and tend to the practical details of partnership. These are important contributions to the relationship, but because they lack glamor, your partner may not always appreciate you. You are not the most romantic partner, and your tastes are rather simple (although, as mentioned before, it is hard for others to see that simplicity because you may have a habit of fussing). Can’t see the forest for the trees? Your partner might accuse you of this, and it may be true. You will benefit from sitting back and infusing yourself with some faith in the big picture, once in a while. But, you are needed! And there are partners who will see that. You work hard at making yourself indispensable in your partner’s life. Generally, you don’t throw yourself into love affairs too readily. This does not mean you are chaste, like the Virgo of yore. Some Venus in Virgo natives can even be promiscuous. But when it comes to gooey romance, where lovers bare all, you are rather selective and self-contained. You are a very sensual being who wants to feel safe before giving yourself to another. Venus in Virgo has a reputation for being critical. This does happen, but it generally is a symptom of insecurity. You can’t help but see the failings and the holes in any partnership, and you can sometimes be quite reticent about entering a partnership. Generally, though, you will see what’s wrong with a person at the outset of a relationship when it doesn’t feel safe to you as yet. It’s a defense mechanism more than anything! Your own insecurities can propel you to see faults and problems in your partner. Once you feel safe, however, you are not quite the fussbudget Venus in Virgo is made out to be. You value effort put into a relationship (in fact, for many with this position, effort from their partner is at the top of their list).
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
Here, we are mixing Fire (Aries) and Earth (Virgo – you!). It’s not an easy combination, for certain, but it has its merits. One of the most noticeable differences between you and your partner is his/her need for stimulation and excitement contrasted with your desire for safety and security. You can be quite active together, and pour some energy into activities, but your partner’s impulsive and competitive nature may leave you feeling insecure. Both of you are simple in your needs, but those needs are markedly different. Your partner isn’t the most flowery of lovers, and neither are you, but he/she can be downright insensitive at times. You are a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. You will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but you do want some appreciation for all your efforts. Both of you value honesty, and you’ll generally get it from each other. Your partner will likely appreciate your willingness to please, in the moments when he/she notices this trait. Money matters will most certainly bring some conflict, as you are more cautious and a natural worrier and your partner can be the classic impulse buyer. Shared interests are important to you, and this may also be a problem, as you and your partner are really quite dissimilar!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love…ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your willingness to make adjustments. Your partner is a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that you so gracefully offer any partnership. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, your partner is more capable of calming your nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make you feel whole and scads more comfortable in your own skin. You appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds your partner. He/she senses your commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to you in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and this may indeed happen with your Venus in Taurus partner, although you might be the one doing more of the hard work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
Because you tend to value intelligence and communication, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Gemini partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to you, your partner may be less discriminating than you in terms of who he/she communicates with. You come alive in an established relationship. Your partner, on the other hand, requires a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to you for mental stimulation. This is healthy for your partner, but it may be somewhat intimidating for you, as you prefer to be the most indispensable person in any partner’s life. You also tend to be more sensitive in matters of the heart than your happy-go-lucky lover. Your partner thrives on variety, and tires easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. You are restless as well, but you are at your best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although your partner may take this to an extreme that makes you feel uncomfortable. You may begin to question the sincerity and constancy of your partner over time.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationship——perhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner’s mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environment——exactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner’s approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
You are the worrywart in love, focusing on what will come of your relationship in the future. Your Venus in Leo lover, however, lives for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. You worry about the practical side of the partnership. Your partner expresses his/her love for you in a lavish, showy manner. He/she is consumed with the romance of your relationship, and might expect you to feel the same way. You easily feel threatened by your partner’s apparent “experience”, but do remember that your lover is given to brag a little, and he/she is trying to win your favor——perhaps the wrong way! In his/her desire to be viewed as irresistible, your partner may inadvertently make you feel insecure. You express your love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. This doesn’t sound exceptionally romantic to your starry-eyed lover, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and somebody has to do it (Venus in Leo would prefer not!). Try not to feel intimidated by your partner, and enjoy his/her generous love nature. Your partner may be so lavish with praise that it seems insincere. It’s not! Don’t overanalyze it. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signs——they don’t share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Virgo:
Both of you value the same things in love, which is a good starting point. Shared interests are important to you, but in this case, when two Venusian Virgos are together, it would make a little more sense (a word you both love!) to have different projects and interests. Why? Because you both tend to want to run the show when it comes to pet projects. In the love relationship in general, however, you are flexible and attentive. It may be difficult to choose a leader! There doesn’t always have to be a leader in a relationship, of course, but the relationship might become a little bogged down in details. Ideally, you have some strong Water or Fire signs elsewhere in your chart, helping to infuse some energy and heart into an otherwise somewhat dry combination. You need to establish some far-reaching goals for the partnership, something that doesn’t come too naturally for either of you, simply because you are too busy taking care of the business at hand. You can be somewhat nervous in love, and your partner is inclined in this direction as well. Be careful not to pick each other apart, and enjoy the fantastic conversations you will inevitably share.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venusian Air (Libra) and Earth (Virgo) temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. You are certainly a thinker, but your partner is more given to sharing flights of fancy while your ideas are more conservative and practical. Your partner might find you too skeptical in matters of the heart; at the same time, you might consider your partner to be too idealistic. Your Venus in Libra lover has a somewhat detached manner, and you might interpret the “airs” that he/she puts on (read: charm!) as a lack of sincerity. Loyalty is of utmost importance to you, and your lover is certainly capable of giving a lot to the partnership. In fact, he/she lives for partnership! But your partner’s detached manner might make you feel somewhat insecure and threatened. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other’s different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
Trust doesn’t come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. Your partner is passionate and intense——perhaps even provocative. If he/she senses passion and commitment is missing or waning, your lover may go to any means (often subtle) to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because your partner can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. You are usually receptive to your partner’s wishes and needs, and you tend to bend your ways accordingly. You work hard at making your relationship work——something that your partner senses and appreciates. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth (you) and Water (your partner). When you understand each other’s different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but you value practical expressions of commitment, while your partner values emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If your partner senses any emotional distance on your part, he/she may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, you only appear “distant” because you are busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. You may find your partner’s silences frustrating, as you are always willing to talk about your relationship and don’t always understand why your partner resorts to giving you the silent treatment! Your partner is skilled at knowing how to push your buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways he/she has discovered to get your attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
This combination is one of the more difficult ones. There can be considerable attraction at the beginning, but some major disconnects in terms of values and relationship styles are likely over time——nothing insurmountable, of course! The common ground you share is a desire to learn through your relationship and a willingness to talk things over. Your partner values your keen insight and you can have some wonderful conversations. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover, especially, gets off on the sharing of ideas, and enjoys philosophizing. You are certainly the more practical partner in this pairing, and your partner may find you a bit of a stick in the mud at times. You may complain of his/her blind faith in the relationship, preferring that your partner live in the here and now. You value effort put into the relationship, and you can’t help but see all of the “little things” that make up its whole. Your partner, on the other hand, prefers to think of your partnership in grander, larger terms. This can be very annoying for you! You will likely disagree on how to spend money as well. Your partner is not a save-for-a-rainy-day type of person by any stretch of the imagination (unless Saturn is aspecting his/her Venus)! Your lover needs space and at least the illusion of freedom. He/she is very threatened by any attempts to confine him/her. Needless to say, your partner will be much happier if there is a strong feeling of growth in your relationship. Making plans and defining goals may help, but attempting to control or cage your partner in will have unfavorable results.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little…well, dry…there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! Your partner cherishes some moments of solitude, and that is something that you will need to understand and respect. There is no reason to feel threatened with this behavior. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your partner’s side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, so you will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
Your partner gets off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. You, on the other hand, are most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! You believe your needs are simple, and in many ways they are. You respond best to practical displays of affection, and because your Venus is in an Earth sign, you value your partner’s physical presence. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make you feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. Your partner values exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner’s appreciation of you is paramount. Otherwise, you are prone to feeling like you have done something wrong. Your partner shows his or her love in different ways, and the independence your lover needs, if misunderstood, can lead you to worry far too much. Note that if you loosen up and be yourself, your lover will appreciate you all the more. Misunderstanding of each other’s unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
This is a case of “opposites attract”, except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just that—your partner, not an enemy. You will appreciate your lover’s gentleness and sympathy, although you can find him or her somewhat evasive at times. This is because while you are happy to define love, your partner prefers to leave some things unspoken. Faith in love is something your Venus in Pisces partner can teach you, if you are open to it. You can help ground your partner, reminding him or her that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal.
 
If your Venus is in Libra:
When your Venus is in Libra, you have an irresistibly pleasing romantic demeanor, no matter what you look like. The sign of Libra is intimately connected with partnerships, so you are particularly sensitive to the give-and-take associated with any kind of pairing that is one-on-one. You are a romantic, and will spend much of your attention and focus on relationships in your lifetime. You vibrate to the concept of harmony, and peace is your ultimate goal. However, along the road to that goal, you can certainly stir a pot or two!
 
You are a pleaser, that is for certain. In fact, because you are so sensitive to the needs of others, you may be accused of adapting your manner or even your personality to “suit” the object of your affection! The truth is, you can easily lose your identity in partnership because of your natural ability to see things from your partner’s point of view. Libra is the sign of balance, and in your attempts to keep the scales balanced, you may wear your partner down by a natural tendency to “keep scores”. You should watch out that you don’t give away power to your partner, and then resent your feeling of powerlessness.
 
You view partnerships as fundamental to a fulfilled existence, and you work hard at supporting your partner’s individuality. Togetherness is so extraordinarily important to you that your partner might find you quite dependent, and even clingy. In most cases, however, your deep need for togetherness makes you an exceptionally companionable person. You redefine the word “charming”, and you are an expert at smoothing ruffled feathers. Compromise comes easy to you, and your ideal partner will appreciate your willingness to consider his or her needs and wants.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
Here we have a case of “opposites attract”! The attraction to each other can be very powerful, mainly because each of you seems to offer what the other lacks. Your partner’s direct——even aggressive——approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your life, as you tend toward indecision. It’s a stark contrast to your more passive, mental approach to love. Note that your Venusian rulers are Venus and Mars! This promises much excitement. Your partnership may be better if it’s an affair rather than a long-standing relationship, as the differences between you that spark the initial attraction can grow to be challenging over time. You are a somewhat dependent creature, while your partner is much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because your partner doesn’t have much patience to wait. If your Venus in Aries friend sees someone (or something) he or she likes, they’ll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and he or she figures that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. You, on the other hand, notoriously take your time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, you value reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as you are when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active lover in the sense that he or she definitely needs a partner who will compromise, but you may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, your partner doesn’t always listen to reason. The best bet for long-term compatibility with this pairing would be to open your hearts to each other and learn. Somewhere between your polar opposites is a balance. If you can’t find that point, your relationship may very well turn into a game of tug-of-war.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take an intellectual approach to love (you think and talk a lot about your relationship), your partner is considerably more practical and earthy. All too often, Earth signs (including Taurus), interpret your intellectual approach to love as either disloyalty or lacking in sincerity. You can easily become frustrated with your lover’s seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. Your partner is sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time you invest in your partnership, although he or she may eventually question whether your approach is actually getting results. You see, your lover is much more interested in what works in love——what he or she sees in tangible terms. What “could be”, “would be”, or “might be” doesn’t pull much weight with your Venus in Taurus partner. With a natural inclination to see where your relationship needs adjustment, you are usually more than willing to compromise——a trait that might be considered a necessity with your partner, who is not the most flexible of lovers. Your thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied Venus in Taurus partner. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
This is a lively combination in which communication doesn’t just flow, it bounces and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You thrive on feedback from your partner, and your Venusian Gemini lover will certainly fulfill that need. There can be considerable respect between you. Your partner enjoys plenty of social and mental stimulation——the more variety, the better——and you do as well. However, your focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while your partner is not so specific in his or her needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for “air time”. Your partner may not be as romantic as you, and you might complain that he or she is a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with his or her wit. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. This relationship can contain markedly less of the sort of jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperation is easy between you. Both of you are flexible when it comes to love, and that fact can certainly help ease difficulties that arise.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. Your partner expresses his or her love in a distinctly personal manner, while you are more intellectually inclined. You are adept at honing in on what your partner needs and what makes your partner uncomfortable——so much so that you might change your style completely in order to keep the peace. With this Venusian Cancer, you will quickly get to know that your partner is very sensitive. Although it is important to avoid hurting your lover’s feelings, you don’t want to compromise your personality completely in order to maintain harmony. If you do, personal communication between you can come to a halt, and neither of you will find much satisfaction in that kind of environment. Your partner is capable of putting up huge walls around himself or herself, and communication is utterly critical to your sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more you press your partner for the feedback you thrive on, the more your partner may withdraw. As charming as you are, you might be able to coax your partner out of his or her shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. You might never find such a caring and supportive partner elsewhere.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encounters——and so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that you are entirely wrapped up in the “we” of your partnership, while your partner is more concerned about “me”. Your partner is infatuated with the feelings that are most characteristic of the first stages of romance, and wants that passion to continue…indefinitely! While romance is certainly right up your alley, you have tremendous respect for the give and take of partnership. Your partner will truly appreciate your willingness to compromise and accommodate him or her. However, over time, you are bound to refer to your “mental log” and start tallying things up. Your love of equality and fairness always surfaces, and although you are generally very willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside you if your partner takes advantage of this willingness. Your resentment can eventually get the best of your partnership. You might find your partner a tad too intense at times. At the same time, your lover might complain that you are somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for his or her liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where you are always running after your somewhat hard to please partner, trying to make him or her happy. It can be all too easy for your desire to keep peace in your relationship to be taken advantage of. Your partner should recognize that you are likely to resent a partnership in which the “give and take” is not balanced.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venus in Air (Libra) and Earth (Virgo) temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. Your partner is definitely a thinker, but you are more given to sharing flights of fancy. Your more practical partner entertains and shares ideas that are more conservative and practical. It may seem to you that your partner is skeptical in matters of the heart, which can certainly irritate your sensibilities, simply because you have an idealistic and positive view of partnership. You can sometimes give off an air of detachment, and your charming manner might be interpreted by your partner as a lack of sincerity. Because loyalty is of utmost importance to your Venus in Virgo partner, your commitment to the partnership will be very much appreciated. You, in fact, live for partnership! You are very romantic and always put yourself in others’ shoes. At times, however, your partner can feel insecure in the face of your sociable, people-oriented values. He or she wants to be your “number one”, and needs to feel needed. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments and concessions in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other’s different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Libra:
Pairing two Libras at best is pleasing and harmonious. At worst, it’s a bit unbalanced——a word (rather, a condition) that makes Libra uneasy. After all, Libras work so hard to balance their relationships and their environments. Both of you value feedback and communication in your relationships, and each of you is more than willing to give the other just these things! However, because both of you are rather ambivalent and indecisive, an endless loop may be the result when you get together. Your conversations will be very stimulating, no doubt, but will they go anywhere solid? Probably not. You two need to establish some goals in your relationship in order to escape the “endless loop”. It can be very difficult to establish a leader in this partnership. Of course, a relationship doesn’t necessarily need a leader, per se. However, both of you “get off” on cooperation, bending to your partner, and compromising. As such, you will likely find you share a lot of interests, but acting on these things might be a problem. You might have a difficult time curbing your expenses as well, simply because both of you have such refined tastes. Each of you have perfected the art of diplomacy within relationships, and you need to be careful that you truly confront problems as they arise instead of talking your way around them. Despite these apparent problems, you truly understand each other and have very similar partnership needs and expectations. Togetherness is of utmost value to both of you, and your similarities can be the foundation for a powerful bond.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! Your partner wants your soul, not just your presence. You, on the other hand, are most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your relationship needs, you work hard at finding common ground and adamantly believe in equality and all that is fair. Your partner, on the other hand, believes just as strongly that life isn’t fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. Your lover is fascinated with your charm, and you are intrigued by your partner’s intense love nature. Although Venus in Scorpio people are notorious for their mysteriousness, he or she considers you to be somewhat of a puzzle. You bring a lively, luminous energy to your relationships——qualities that stand in stark contrast to your partner’s intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teach——and to offer——each other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Your Venus signs are considered compatible, and this is certainly a relationship in which both partners appreciate each other. We are combining Air and Fire with this union, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. You may find your lover somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because he or she is freedom-loving. You are not one to try to confine a lover, but some adjustment in your thinking may be needed. Your partner is adventurous in love, and not as tactful as you can be. At times, he or she may run roughshod over your feelings, often with no intention to do so, but you are fully capable of understanding that your partner is simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to your “do it now” partner. However, you can have a lot of fun with each other, and laughter is truly a gift in any relationship. Good conversations are probable when you are together, and shared interests will do much to strengthen the bond between you. As well, you are the master of being reasonable, which your partner will appreciate more than most.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committed——only in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. You concern yourself with equality in your relationships, and you busy yourself weighing the pros and cons from day to day. Your partner is also concerned about your relationship, only he or she is somewhat more reserved than you are when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to you, while practical expressions of love are important to your lover. Your partner will appreciate your commitment to him or her, deriving a sense of security from it. You will appreciate your partner’s commitment as well, and you feel very at ease with him or her. Your partner exudes a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for you. Your willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for your partner to appreciate and acknowledge that quality in you. In turn, be sure you acknowledge your partner’s stability in love, and appreciate the security you derive from his or her constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite these differences, and will go a long way towards compatibility.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues with the definition of your relationship, however. Whereas you value partnerships more than anything, your partner is more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. Your partner can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but you are more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. Your partner values peace and not only believes in equality, but treats people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to you. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through (and your partner’s responsiveness in this department) can help smooth over rough edges.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because your love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your love planet (Venus) is an Air sign, while your partner’s is a Water sign. While you approach relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, your partner instinctively responds to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by the world of thought and ideas in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by feelings. Your partner needs some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other’s unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work.
 
If your Venus is in Scorpio:
When your Venus is in Scorpio, it’s all or nothing in matters of the heart. You are capable of loving deeply, and you crave intimacy. Scorpio isn’t afraid of anything, and when Venus, the planet of love, is found in this sign, love relationships are intense. Scorpio is also a sign that thrives on crisis in order for its natives to feel alive and vital, so when it comes to matters of the heart, you are not only unafraid of getting your hands dirty, you may easily find an overly predictable relationship uninteresting.
 
Scorpios don’t enjoy being referred to as jealous, but from time to time, jealousy and possessiveness become issues in your relationships. You have a strong desire to control your often turbulent passions, and you don’t always let your partner exactly what is going on inside of you as a result. Others will be either strongly attracted to, or intimidated by, your obvious ability to give all to love, and your extraordinary passion. Your strong interest in love and romance can sometimes border on obsessive, and you need a partner who is willing to go the distance with you. Sexually, you are intense as well, but you definitely do not only want your partner’s body—you want his or her soul as well. Sex without intimacy is ultimately uninteresting to you.
 
Be careful that your fear of betrayal doesn’t become a self-fulfilling prophecy. When insecure about your partner’s feelings about you, resorting to games of power and control might seem like a natural route for you, and may even get temporary desired “results”, but can have disastrous consequences in the long run. Learning to let go a little and have faith in your partner can do wonders in any relationship. When you are at your best, you are unafraid of intimacy and can offer extraordinary passion to your relationships that is pretty much unmatched.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
An unusual combination, but very intriguing when two powerful Venus placements come together! The attraction can be exciting, but harmony can be difficult to attain. Your partner is direct while you can be more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido is rather constant, while your partner’s fluctuates tremendously. Your partner lives for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but you have an eye on commitment and constancy. Sexually, you are likely to have a powerful union, but emotionally there can be difficulties because your styles of expressing love and affection are so contrary. Perhaps this combination is better when the relationship is shorter term——the memory of your times together could be powerful. Still, this combination can work in a committed, long-term relationship with heaps of love and understanding. Adjustments will most surely have to be made. Butting heads is something you are likely to do, as both of you want your way in relationships, but both of you will have to learn to concede to each other now and again! Passions will run high, and if you can harness that energy and put it to work for your relationship in a positive way, then the union will be satisfying indeed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnerships——or each other—easily. You tend to be more intense about your attachments than your partner is, and your partner’s overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other’s strong personality and willingness to commit. You sense in your partner the ability to “go the distance”, and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to you both, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. Your partner may find you overly complex, while you might consider your partner’s needs too simple! Your partner’s desire in love is for peace and stability, while you thrive on boat-rocking from time to time. You tend to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your partner’s goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that “like attracts like” on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers (albeit in completely different ways!), and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious “issues” as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. Your partner is a tease, a flirt. This doesn’t necessarily mean that he or she flirts with everyone, but he or she does infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into their relationship. Your love nature is intense, and you crave intimacy. When intimacy is threatened, you can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which you attempt to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio you are. You are astute and perceptive, and can easily learn how to push your partner’s buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. You want your partner’s soul, not just their body! Your partner, however, has an entirely different view of partnership. He or she wants it to be fun, while you will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similar——and familiar——vein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel “at home”. Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your partner’s warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to you, and your partner senses your all-encompassing love that will hold special appeal to your loving partner. At times, the love you offer can feel all-consuming, but this doesn’t scare your partner like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love your partner gives is rather similar, and you don’t fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, you live for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your partner’s memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your partner’s reaction to hurts is often internalized, while you can grow cold and unresponsive when you feel slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may become a big issue between you. You quickly “feel out” your emotions-on-the-sleeves partner and learns his or her boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water (Scorpio) has the power to put out Fire (Leo). What happens is your partner’s natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might seem threatening or disconcerting to you, and you might find it easy to pull your partner down, or “rain on his or her parade”. Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When you withhold sex, generally because you are feeling unloved or unappreciated, your partner takes it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. Your partner is sure to appreciate your emotional commitment to the relationship, and you will respect your partner’s strength, as you are attracted to intensity——even crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
Trust doesn’t come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. You are passionate and intense——perhaps even provocative at times. If you sense passion and commitment is missing or waning, you may go to any means (often subtle) to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because you can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. Your partner is usually receptive to a partner’s wishes and needs, and he or she tends to bend their ways accordingly. Your lover works hard at making relationships work——something that you sense and appreciate. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth (your partner) and Water (you). When you understand each other’s different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but your partner values practical expressions of commitment, while you value emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If you sense any emotional distance on your lover’s part, you may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, your partner only appears “distant” because he or she is busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. Your lover may find your silences frustrating, because he or she is always willing to talk about the relationship and doesn’t always understand why you resort to giving him or her the silent treatment! You can be skilled at knowing how to push your partner’s buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways you have discovered to get your partner’s attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! You want your lover’s soul, not just his or her presence. Your lover, on the other hand, is most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your partner’s relationship needs, he or she works hard at finding common ground and adamantly believes in equality and all that is fair. You, on the other hand, believe just as strongly that life isn’t fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. You can be fascinated with your partner’s charm, and your lover is intrigued by your intense love nature. Although you are notorious for your mysteriousness, you can actually consider your Venus in Libra partner to be somewhat of a puzzle! You may find your lover to be emotionally distant and overly focused on superficial togetherness at the expense of intimacy. Your partner brings a lively, luminous energy to his or her relationships——qualities that stand in stark contrast, at times, to your intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teach——and to offer——each other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Scorpio:
Your similarities in approach to love can either strengthen your relationship or make you wary of each other! Often, it is a combination of both. Both of you are intense lovers, wanting emotional involvement more than anything from a relationship. You will certainly get it from each other, but Scorpio, perhaps more than most signs, needs a partner to complement, with enough differences to keep things interesting. Not that this relationship will be boring——that could never happen with either of you! Neither of you is comfortable with a partnership that is completely comfortable or predictable. Your relationship will never get to that point. The only red flag here is that each of you needs someone to soften your sharp edges, and your relationship may be even too much of an emotional rollercoaster for either of your liking! If both of you are at an emotionally healthy point in your lives, and with understanding, you can certainly forge out a strong commitment. Passions will be strong, although stand-offs may be frequent and almost unbearable. If you make the time to appreciate each other, there will be considerable mutual respect and common goals in this relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
This is a case of two side-by-side signs, with two very different ways of expressing love, trying to relate. The result can be awkward and a little messy, but can certainly work with awareness and understanding. You approach love relationships with intensity. Your partner is intense in a different way. He or she is a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to your partner. He or she does not always come across as constant with affections, and this fact can be frustrating to you. You can be somewhat possessive in love, but your partner chokes when he or she feels caged in. You may find your partner somewhat flighty and inconstant, and he or she may be bewildered by your greater than average need for intimacy. Still, you will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that your partner breathes into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! Your partner will consider you astute and will appreciate your depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
The passion your partner senses in you is, of course, real, and this thought excites your mate. Although other lovers may find your partner a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, you have a way of making him or her feel extraordinary. Because your partner both fears and craves intimacy, you are probably one of the most ideal people to get to him or her. Your partner finds you exciting and deeply intriguing, and you are sure to find him or her equally fascinating——even a challenge. You will thoroughly appreciate your partner’s dedication to a relationship, probably more than most, and it is when he or she feels appreciated that your partner is at his or her romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone “weak” for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what your partner appreciates most about you is your ability to see past his or her defenses. While others may be intimidated by your partner’s often cool and even aloof exterior, you know there is a lot more to your lover. Fortunately for you, you will get to experience all that is inside your Venus in Capricorn lover, and it is unlikely you will be disappointed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner’s love nature, and your partner with your nature. Your nature is intense and personal, and very passionate. While your partner is able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, you have a much more difficult time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for you to “get” why your lover is capable of detaching him or herself from emotional circumstances, and you may even find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. Your partner can be quite baffled by your passionate reactions, as he or she tends to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. Your lover values objectivity, and prides himself or herself on an ability to reason things through. Your partner may be inclined to react to your more emotionally intense moments by giving you space. This is likely to frustrate you even more, as you interpret your partner’s “stepping aside” as walking away——or, even worse, lack of concern for you and the relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other’s strength of character.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding of each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can promote an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionally——you don’t use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Pisces partner. You are more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than your partner is, however. Your partner loves deeply and with his or her heart, but you might wonder just how exclusive those feelings are towards you. You want to get under your lover’s skin, and you are not always thrilled to share your partner with the rest of the world. So, when your partner is expressing his or her compassion for pretty much everyone that comes around the corner, you may feel a tad threatened. You need to understand and accept your partner’s love of mankind in general. You might worry that your lover strays too easily——and it’s not about him or her having an affair. It’s more a concern that your partner is too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when he or she has you? That’s the kind of attitude you might hold, and this could be your relationship’s biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. Your partner is more than likely to appreciate your intensity and depth of feeling.
 
If your Venus is in Sagittarius:
When your Venus is in Sagittarius, you are confident and positive in love. You associate love and relationships with adventure, learning, and growth. For the most part, you are easygoing in matters of the heart, although you are passionate and do enjoy it when things are going your way! You want to grow through your relationships, and don’t appreciate humdrum, stagnant partnerships in which you might feel caged in.
 
You love variety, and can be given to exaggeration——not because you are intentionally trying to mislead others, but because you have such an expansive vision in matters of the heart. Sometimes, as a result, you may promise more than you can give. You value spontaneity, and prefer to “wing it” when it comes to love. Planning ahead takes all the spice out of your life. You attract others with a free and easy attitude, and quickly become chummy with potential partners.
 
You love to make people laugh, and your goofiness is generally considered attractive. A partnership that is too serious would drag you down. You are a dreamer, and have many visions. Sometimes you let others down, not because you are ill-spirited. In fact, you have a big heart. Instead, it is because your dreams can sometimes be too big, and follow-through is not your forte. In your enthusiasm with a new love interest, you can promise more than you can deliver, and when the fire burns out, it may be all too easy for you to move on.
 
You are a generous partner, but you are not easily “tied down”. You can be easy to companion but not to partner, so to speak. You require space in any kind of partnership, and need a sense of freedom in order to feel comfortable.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
Because both of you fall in love intuitively, almost on impulse, your relationship is almost certain to start quickly. Neither of you takes the time to evaluate potential partners on practical levels. Your interest is aroused suddenly and is based usually on pure infatuation and attraction, and the same goes for your Venus in Aries partner. We are mixing two fiery Venus placements here, and this can make for a very stimulating——even invigorating——pairing. For the most part, you will inspire each other, and mutual encouragement is more than likely. Love for both of you needs to be active and growth-oriented. You may be more intellectual than your partner, enjoying sharing your philosophies with him or her perhaps more than your partner would do naturally. Neither of you is afraid of a good heated debate, or outright argument, so tempers may flare at times, but neither of you is one to hold grudges and you both are willing to move forward and forget about problems easily. Both of you love to laugh and play with your partners, and neither of you likes to be tied down. Giving each other space is important, but it is likely to come naturally for both of you. You feel comfortable with one another right from the start, and the enthusiasm generated between the two of you is admirable. Both of you are competitive, and enjoy friendly sparring. You admire each other’s direct approach in love, and are sure to keep active together. Neither of you is content with a relationship that is too settled or comfortable.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
The connection between the two of you may seem a bit odd, due to vastly different styles and needs in love, but understanding and compromise can make it work. You enjoy having fun in love, and you are capable of infusing your relationship with heaps of excitement. Excitement in a partnership is not as important to your partner, however. In fact, in his or her book, stability and predictability are attractive qualities of any partnership. You are a risk-taker in love (and finances!), while your partner tends to “play it safe”. Your partner digs in his or her heels and gets comfortable, while you have your sights on bigger things. Your tendency to believe that the grass is always greener somewhere else is something that can easily frustrate your lover, as his or her needs are quite simple and contentment is the goal. Your lover’s possessiveness can create serious problems in this partnership. You are a much happier and giving person when you feel free. Your lover must learn to enjoy your spirited attitude toward love and partnership. At the same time, it would be wise for you to learn to understand your partner’s desire for security. Giving your partner the freedom to be himself or herself, and vice versa, will be the key to the success of this relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
Your Venus signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac, but you share some similarities. Both of you are lovers of freedom in your relationships, and neither of you will turn down the chance for a stimulating conversation. Although there isn’t always a “meeting of minds” between you two, there definitely will be some passionate discussions. Both you and your partner are somewhat restless, neither lasting long in a relationship that is confining or stuffy. You tend to be more passionate than your partner in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting your lover to adopt the same belief systems, but you share a common love of fun and humor in love. Unless there are strong supporting aspects in synastry, the relationship may be broken impulsively. Both of you benefit from a partner who grounds you and reminds you of the long term. You may not find these qualities in each other. You value honesty from a lover, while your partner values mental exchanges, period. Restlessness in partnership is something you both share, and it’s best that you try to channel that energy into shared activities, such as traveling, instead of finding holes in your relationship. Remembering that opposites often do attract, this relationship is certainly workable if neither of you clings to your ways self-righteously. Learning from each other, and trying to strike a balance, will pay off. Together, you can easily become inspired.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This is a confusing combination, although it has the potential to be very stimulating if you are willing to accept each other for who you are, and learn from one another! While your partner is at his or her best in a relationship that feels safe and secure, you are unhappy when a relationship becomes too predictable or confining. Your lover shows his or her love through attention and caring, and this wonderful quality can sometimes feel lost on you, as you are a more free-wheeling partner. Relationships that support growth in all directions are what gets you high and happy. You need to feel like you are headed somewhere, and that the journey will be a fulfilling one both physically and mentally. Facing up to intense emotional issues or problems in the relationship is not your best quality, but it is certainly your partner’s department! Intimacy, for your lover, is intoxicating. Rejection is your partner’s worst fear! If the love is there, you are certainly capable of committing, but your style may rub your lover the wrong way until he or she understands that it is just that——a style. Freedom and energy are important “ingredients” in a satisfying relationship in your eyes, and no amount of coercing or theatrics will change those needs. However, if your partner learns to put some faith (one of Sagittarius’ favorite words!) in you, and give you some freedom of movement, your lover won’t feel the need for tactics in order to keep you with him or her. If this relationship is allowed the time and space to grow, you can have some great fun with each other, and you can certainly benefit from your partner’s more tender, emotional touch.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
You and your partner share a fiery approach to love. Both of you fall in love intuitively, without much ado. You share a common love of action and joie de vivre. Any relationship between you is sure to start quickly and passionately. Off to a good start, for certain, but there can be a few snags along the way. Your partner is naturally more loyal than you are, as you can be a tad restless, and loyalty from a partner is very important to your lover. Restlessness can intimidate him or her, and leave your partner feeling insecure. Your far-sightedness means that you aren’t always focused on what is right under your nose——namely, your partner! And, focus on him or her, and on your relationship, is essential to your lover’s basic happiness in love. You most certainly will share some fantastic times together as you fuel each other’s spirits, inspiring each other to reach new heights in love. What your lover needs to understand is that you dislike the feeling of being fenced in. If you feel free, you are more likely to stay true. If you are stifled (which can very well happen with your partner!), your relationship will quickly become volatile. However, this relationship is an especially passionate one that neither of you could forget easily.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
This combination is one of the more difficult ones. There can be considerable attraction at the beginning, but some major disconnects in terms of values and relationship styles are likely over time——nothing insurmountable, of course! The common ground you share is a desire to learn through your relationship and a willingness to talk things over. You value your partner’s keen insight and you can have some wonderful conversations. You, especially, get off on the sharing of ideas, and you thoroughly enjoy philosophizing. Your partner is certainly the more practical person in this pairing, and you may find your Venus in Virgo lover a bit of a stick in the mud at times. Your lover may complain of your blind faith in the relationship, preferring that you live in the “here and now”. Your lover values effort put into the relationship, and he or she can’t help but see all of the “little things” that make up its whole. You, on the other hand, prefer to think of your partnership in grander, larger terms. This can be very annoying for your lover! You will likely disagree on how to spend money as well. You are not a save-for-a-rainy-day type of person by any stretch of the imagination (unless Saturn is aspecting your Venus)! You need space and at least the illusion of freedom. You are very threatened by any attempts to be confined. Needless to say, you will be much happier if there is a strong feeling of growth in your relationship. Making plans and defining goals may help, but attempts by your partner to control or cage you in will have unfavorable results. You have much to offer your lover, and can most certainly, more than most, brighten up his or her outlook.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Your Venus signs are considered compatible, and this is certainly a relationship in which both partners appreciate each other. We are combining Air and Fire with this pairing, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. Your partner may find you somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because you are freedom-loving. Although your partner is not one to try to confine a lover, some adjustment in his or her thinking may be needed. You are adventurous in love, and not as tactful as your lover can be. At times, you may run roughshod over his or her feelings, but your partner is fully capable of understanding that you are simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your lover’s indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to you, as you are a “do it now” person. However, you can have a lot of fun with each other, and laughter is truly a gift in any relationship. Good conversations are probable when you are together, and shared interests will do much to strengthen the bond between you. As well, your partner is the master of being reasonable, which you will appreciate more than most. Your partner will love your joie de vivre, and you two can have some great times together.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
This is a case of two side-by-side signs, with two very different ways of expressing love, trying to relate. The result can be awkward and a little messy, but can certainly work with awareness and understanding. Your partner approaches love relationships with intensity. You are intense in a different way. You are a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your lover’s passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to you, and you do not always come across as constant with affections. This seeming inconstancy can be frustrating to your partner. He or she can be somewhat possessive in love, but you choke when you feel caged in. Your partner may complain that you can be somewhat flighty and inconstant, and you may be bewildered by your lover’s greater than average need for intimacy. Still, your lover will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that you breathe into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! You will consider your partner to be highly astute and will appreciate his or her depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Sagittarius:
You have similar styles and needs in love. Both of you want to grow in your relationships. You also love to laugh and learn with, and through, your partners. Each of you attracts other through your sense of humor and positive outlook, so chances are that if you have come together in relationship, you appreciate one another’s good humor and faith. You will sense a camaraderie that goes deep. Because each of you needs to feel rather free in any partnership, you will face that side of yourself in your partner! Chances are, you will keep active together and have some out-of-this-world discussions——something that energizes you both. Because of your similarities in this part of your personalities (love nature), your compatibility will depend very much on how comfortable each of you is with yourselves. For the most part, you encourage each other, although sometimes you might overdo things, and neglect some of the more practical aspects of your partnership. However, you really know how to have fun with each other, which is an enviable quality in any partnership!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
Your love natures and needs are quite different, which can set you up for both challenges and growth opportunities. You throw yourself whole-heartedly into the love of the moment, without much interest in long-term relationship planning. Your lover, on the contrary, is considerably more cautious about starting a relationship, but once he or she makes a commitment, it is a lasting and serious one. The potential clash here is the direction of the partnership. Your partner wants to garner some sort of security from your plans for your relationship, while you prefer to “wing it”. You attract others with your friendly, optimistic personality, and your partner exudes a certain quiet, cautious charm when it comes to love. Chances are that you are the more outgoing of the two—not necessarily in a general personality sense, but in terms of the kindling of your romantic relationship. Your spiritedness was likely a big turn-on for your partner, at least at the outset. As things move forward, however, your lover may pick at that very optimism, perhaps due to his or her own fears of being insecure in partnership. You might complain that your partner takes things too seriously, and wish for more “oomph” and adventurousness. Nevertheless, with understanding, you have much to offer each other. You can loosen up your partner, offering a freshness and encouragement that is hard to find, while your partner can help you to see the value of planning ahead.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
Both of you value freedom, growth, and independence in love relationships. As a result, you are unlikely to be a joined-at-the-hip type of couple. Each of you appreciates the need for individuality, and neither of you believes that a partnership should act to stifle this basic need. Your approach to love, however, may be a little more impulsive and emotional than your somewhat more calm partner. When you get excited about something, forging ahead with gusto, your partner’s collected demeanor may feel a bit like rain on your parade. Remember that you tend to be more expressive than your partner, and your reactions to most things are immediate and emotionally-charged. Your partner is more apt to analyze a situation before letting himself or herself feel the energy of the moment. If you can get beyond this minor incompatibility, and treat it as an opportunity to grow, your partnership has much potential to work well. Both of you are moving forward, disinclined to stifle one another or fall into the ruts that many couples do, and this basic compatibility will most likely lay the ground for a solid yet exciting relationship foundation.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
Both of you are inclined to look for the best in your partner, and this idealism can strengthen your bond. Your styles in love, however, can be radically different at times. While you are generally very direct about your needs in love, your partner doesn’t always know what his or her needs are! Your partner is compassionate and intuitive, and needs to “feel right” about issues in and surrounding love. Your emotions in love move much more quickly, and you may at times be impatient with your partner as a result. Your partner’s feelings in love are easily hurt, and you can have an attitude that truth and directness is the only way to go, and as a result, you want your partner to toughen up. Both of you can be somewhat restless in love. This can express itself as a certain divine discontent on one end of the spectrum, or outright dissatisfaction on the other. Try to focus on the here and now with each other, and avoid the tendency to look beyond the partnership to fill up the holes in your relationship. Even better, accept that you cannot possibly fulfill each other’s every need, but at the same time, appreciate what each of you has to offer each other——and that is a lot!
 
If your Venus is in Capricorn:
When your Venus is in Capricorn, you are generally steadfast and deliberate in love, finding safety and comfort in all that is tried and true. You can be on the cautious side about sharing your heart, but your reliability as a partner is hard to resist for many people.
 
You act respectfully in love, and take extra care not to hurt a partner. For that matter, you take extra care not to get hurt yourself! This self-protective quality can sometimes frustrate your partner, simply because you are not very comfortable with letting yourself go on a romantic level. Once your defenses are down (at least some of them), you are a warm, tender, and even vulnerable lover.
 
Things are at their best in your relationships when your partner understands that you show your emotions and care through actions rather than words. What appears to be a certain coolness, aloofness, or even snobbishness actually hides a fair amount of vulnerability and warmth. When you feel safe and comfortable with someone, you are far more demonstrative.
 
Yours is a strong sensuality. You attract others with a quiet charm that fairly reeks with competence. There is a controlled manner about you when it comes to love, and potential partners can sense it. It can drive them wild if they are so inclined! You are attracted to a partner who is responsible and respectable. Someone who is passionate may at once scare you and appeal to you, and these conflicting emotions and reactions can lead to quite a powerful attraction. Perhaps a passionate person is exactly what you need to loosen up a little. You have much to offer others, and your dependability is sure to be appreciated in the long haul. For those who are up to the challenge, discovering the earthy sensuality and vulnerability inside you will be a tremendous reward. They will have to win your trust, and a little persistence will certainly help.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
The differences in your styles of expressing love should be pretty obvious right from the start. This can be a source of much fascination, and some misunderstandings as well. Your relationship needs are decidedly more practical and earthy than those of your partner. In matters of the heart, your lover acts first and thinks later. You, on the other hand, consider all of the ins and outs of the partnership: is it practical? Will it work down the road? Do you work well with each other? None of these things are quite as important to your partner, as he or she tends to think in the here and now, while you take into consideration the future of your relationship. If you share your finances with your Venus in Aries lover, you are in the position to help curb your partner’s habit for impulsive spending, and whether or not your lover appreciates that depends entirely on him or her! Your partner might complain that you are a little too serious at times, but hopefully you will enjoy the fact that your partner is remarkably capable of infusing relationships with fun and activity. Because your partner is more forthright in love than you are, it is likely his or her responsibility for getting this relationship going, but if your partner thinks they can always be the leader, they might have another thing coming! Certainly, you are definitely more cautious with your heart, but you also have a reserve of strength that is mighty indeed. Your partner might consider you to be somewhat of a challenge, but challenges in love are generally considered exciting for Venus in Aries. Some clashes are inevitable, but with understanding and love, this relationship can work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other’s interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart (and the bank account) can do wonders for any partnership. You are more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and may sometimes find your partner a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to you both. Each of you has a way of attracting the good things in life, and your partnership is sure to be characterized with healthy abundance.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. Your partner has a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than you do. You are likely to appreciate the fact that your partner can help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity, although you may not feel as safe with this person than you do with some others. Your concern with commitment, and tendency to plan for the future may be a bit foreign to your more happy-go-lucky lover. You are sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. You like your solitude, and your partner likes his or her space. If your lover can avoid feeling threatened by your need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of his or her many and varied interests, this partnership can work well. You are more able to handle your lover’s quips and teasing than others, although you might complain that his or her head is in the clouds. Your feet are definitely on the ground, but you don’t shy away from ambition and progress either! Despite this, if your partner is the more flighty of Venus in Gemini people, he or she might even find you downright boring. This isn’t to say you are boring, but your partner does favor a livelier, more active partner than you may express. In difficult pairings, you might be inclined to think your partner is about as substantial as cotton candy! It’s all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it’s because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
Opposites attract, and you and your partner’s Venus (love) signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your partner’s approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while you tend to be more practically inclined. You prefer to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of “feeling each other out”, and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each other——you in a practical sense and your partner in a nurturing way. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other’s differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your “lists” in the relationship department!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
Your partner is insatiably expressive in love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. You possess a more steady, practical view of relationships. Dramatizing feelings is as natural as breathing to your partner (he doesn’t just like something, he adores it; he isn’t simply hurt by what you say, he is devastated, etc.). You, on the other hand, are more reserved about your feelings and desires, as you are cautious about letting another person into your heart. In fact, you may at times find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. You may question the sincerity behind your partner’s demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Your partner needs to be reminded that the constancy of your feelings is very valuable. You are certainly more concerned about where your relationship is headed. Your partner, on the other hand, is living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, you believe in moderation, and your partner is inclined to go overboard in both areas. Remember that your partner’s ego is tied up in how you treat him or her, and there is the risk that your partner’s apparent over-confidence will prompt you to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, your partner is likely to lose interest fast. You need to understand that your partner is far more insecure in love than he or she lets on. You value solitude from time to time, and your occasional withdrawal is sure to fire your partner up. Your partner’s head is often in the clouds when it comes to love, and his or her vision of the future is generally positive, while you are largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. You might enjoy your lover’s ability to brighten up your day, and your partner will love your extraordinary sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little…well, dry…there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! You cherish some moments of solitude, and that is something that your partner will need to understand and respect. There is no reason for him or her to feel threatened with this behavior, although it might just come down to that when you don’t yet know each other well. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, although you are more concerned about keeping it to a minimum so as to preserve the relationship’s integrity. Both of you, and perhaps especially your partner, will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committed——only in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. Your partner is most concerned with equality in relationships, and is often busy weighing the pros and cons from day to day. You are also concerned about your relationship, only you are somewhat more reserved when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to your partner, while practical expressions of love are important to you. You will appreciate your partner’s commitment to you, deriving a sense of security from it. Your partner should appreciate your commitment as well, and is likely to feel very at ease with you. You exude a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for your partner! The attraction between the two of you is likely to be high. Your partner’s willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for you to both appreciate and acknowledge that quality in your lover. In turn, your partner should acknowledge your stability in love, and appreciate the security he or she derives from this constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite this, and will go a long way towards compatibility.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
The passion you sense in your Venus in Scorpio mate is real, and this thought excites you. Although other lovers may find you a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, your Venus in Scorpio lover has a way of making you feel extraordinary. Because you both fear and crave intimacy, your partner is probably one of the most ideal people to get to you. You are intrigued, and your partner is sure to find you equally fascinating——even a challenge. Your dedication to a relationship will be appreciated by your partner, probably more than most, and it is when you feel appreciated that you are at your romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone “weak” for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what you appreciate most from your Venus in Scorpio partner is his or her ability to see past your defenses. While others may be intimidated by your often cool and even aloof exterior, your partner knows there is a lot more to you.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Your love natures and needs are quite different, which can set you up for both challenges and growth opportunities. Your partner throws him or herself whole-heartedly into the love of the moment, without much interest in long-term relationship planning. You, on the contrary, are considerably more cautious about starting a relationship, but once you make a commitment, it is a lasting and serious one. The potential clash here is the direction of the partnership. You want to garner some sort of security from plans for your relationship, while your partner is hell-bent on “winging it”. Your partner attracts others with a friendly, optimistic personality, and you exude a certain quiet, cautious charm when it comes to love. Chances are that your partner is the more outgoing of the two——not necessarily in a general personality sense, but in terms of the kindling of your romantic relationship. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover’s spiritedness was likely a big turn-on for you, at least at the outset. As things move forward, however, you might, if you are not careful, tend to pick at that very optimism, perhaps due to your own fears of being insecure in partnership. Your partner might complain that you take things too seriously, and wish for more “oomph” and adventurousness. Nevertheless, with understanding, you have much to offer each other. Allow your partner to loosen you up, as he or she offers a freshness and encouragement that is hard to find elsewhere, while you can most certainly help your partner to see the value of planning ahead and treating others with respect and concern.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Capricorn:
Similar goals and similar needs in love provide a healthy and solid foundation for your partnership. No matter how different you are on other levels, the fact that your relationship needs are comparable can help smooth out your pairing. If you share finances, having both of your Venus signs in Capricorn can certainly help you see eye-to-eye on how you spend and save money. Both of you are able to save for a rainy day, and you appreciate that your partner is just as responsible in this respect as you are. Each of you can be a little shy or standoffish at first when it comes to getting to know each other intimately, so this relationship may take a bit of time to get off the ground, but once together, the mutual respect between you will certainly take you places. Of course, whenever we are combining two of the same signs, there is a risk of getting into a rut, but if you have enough differences in other areas of life, stimulation shouldn’t be too much of a problem. You can rely on one another, and that is sure to feel good.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner’s Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person you love. Your partner’s aloofness, on the other hand, isn’t hiding anything! Your partner is genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and is less interested in committing to one special person. Your partner enjoys making friends and sharing social activities with his or her mate. You are usually content to spend more private time with your partner than spreading yourselves around in a social sense. You are a little more possessive of your partner as well. Certainly, your partner will give you plenty of space to be yourself, and that is a true gift. However, you might be looking for something more substantial. Your partner has a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. His or her ability to reason is something you might appreciate, as long as you don’t slip into the feeling of being threatened by that ability to detach. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
Your Venus in Pisces partner is likely very drawn to your aura of strength and conviction. You exude an air that you “have it together”, and this is very attractive to your partner, as he or she is not as regimented in his or her feelings for others. You, in turn, are likely to be intrigued with your lover’s kind and hospitable nature. He or she actually listens to what you have to say, and understands it! Your partner’s willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to you, as you are more disciplined and definite in what you want from a partnership. If the both of you can accept and appreciate each other’s differences in expressing love, this can be a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. Your lover might find you too rigid in your expectations from the partnership, and you might easily find your partner’s dreamy love nature too ethereal. However, this combination is a mix of Water (Pisces) and Earth (Capricorn), which can be very fertile. Your Pisces partner will be more able than most people to tap into your heart, uncovering the warmth underneath your somewhat cool exterior. You will appreciate your partner’s adaptability and acceptance of your commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well.
 
If your Venus is in Aquarius:
When your Venus is in Aquarius, you don’t want to follow all the “rules” in love, preferring to love in your own way, unfettered by convention or what is “supposed” to be, or usually, done. You are future-minded, a tad unconventional (in love, anyhow) and there’s an unmistakable “free spirit” in you that shows up most obviously in matters of the heart. This is not to say you cannot——or will not——fall in love. Infatuations happen easily, but true love can be a little elusive for you. When you do make a commitment, you are generally able to stick to it. The commitment you make generally has to be a little different in order to be tolerable to you, and you are proud of that difference. Following the beaten track simply doesn’t sit well with you.
 
You have an aloof air about you that others find attractive. If they are looking for a commitment from you at a later date, however, what was once considered charismatic might become annoying! It is easy for you to feel claustrophobic in relationships that are too close, too needy, or too demanding of your time. If you have the space to breathe a little, all the better. This is when you are at your best.
 
You are a curious person and enjoy intellectual stimulation in your relationships. Although you are not someone who would be considered flighty, you do not tolerate stagnation very well. You need to feel like your relationship is heading somewhere. Your ability to detach yourself from a situation, take a step back, and look at it from a unique perspective is a tremendous strength. As willing as you are to stir things up if you are in the mood to enforce change, there is a wonderful calm surrounding you that can be most appealing to others. You are ahead of your time in matters of the heart, and you will be best off finding a partner who values your insight.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
In most cases, this combination inspires mutual respect and appreciation. Both of you are generally positive in matters of the heart, so optimism is likely the general theme when you are together. You are somewhat unpredictable when it comes to expressions of love, and your partner is more likely to appreciate this “quirkiness” than most Venusian signs, simply because he or she enjoys challenges and the feeling that a relationship is “alive”. Furthermore, your unconventionality can be quite attractive to your Venus in Aries partner. While others might complain that you are a little too aloof, your lover is more apt to see that trait as a challenge——and rise to it! The only difficulty with all of this is that your partner’s desires in love are quite variable, and when they’re turned on, he or she wants love and wants it right now. If you happen to be off on a tangent, seemingly in another world, your partner can quickly become impatient. However, both of you will give the other enough space to breathe, probably because you each need some independence. With your Venus signs in a sextile with one another, you are likely to appreciate and respect each other, off-moods aside.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! Your partner is more traditional than you are in his or her view of partnerships. Your lover values constancy and dependability in his or her relationships. On the other hand, you resist doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new path rather than traveling along the ” beaten track”. Your partner wants his or her love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. You know how to stick with things, as does your partner, and you aren’t especially attracted to complications as well. However, you don’t find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Your partner, on the other hand, seems to be quite content as long as his or her basic needs are met, and sometimes can even seem complacent. Ideally, the two of you will find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your quirkiness can be fun and even electric. Your lover can remind you how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You, more than most people, understand your lover’s tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but you appreciate his or her changeability, seeing it as really quite natural. However, you are more stubborn than your partner. Your partner’s moods change quickly, and while you can hardly be labeled predictable, you are not as flexible as your partner is. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, your partner is most inclined to be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterize your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while your lover works on keeping things fresh, you will help steady your partner. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. Your partner craves a relationship that is very personal and committed, while you are more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination with the differences between you. There’s a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a direct and offbeat sort of charm, while your partner’s charm is softer and more intimate. Your partner might find your behavior unsettling at times, simply because he or she is looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. You are a freedom-lover, and your love may seem universal and impersonal——the style doesn’t hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that your partner craves. Your partner’s tendency to wrap himself or herself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating to you, but can cause a problem if you begin to interpret it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other’s needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this union moving in healthy directions.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
This is the case of “opposites attract”. Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite signs of the zodiac, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! In astrology, opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Aquarius, are most concerned with the greater group process, while Leo places great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self. You express your feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate your partner. Your partner has a fight or flight reaction——either he or she sees this as a challenge or runs in the opposite direction! You are largely objective, while your partner is subjective. Both of you like to be special and “different”, but your partner wants to be special, where “special” means “the best” in a lover’s eyes. You want to be valued for your uniqueness in terms of the group. Your partner is personal, involved, and intense in his or her romantic dealings; you are more impersonal and rather detached, able to see the bigger picture. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this “shadow” personality in the other.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
You get off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. Your partner, on the other hand, is most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! Your partner believes his or her needs are simple, and in many ways they are, although you might consider these needs unnecessarily complicated. Your lover responds best to practical displays of affection, and because his or her Venus is in an Earth sign, your partner most values your physical presence and attention. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make your lover feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. You value exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner’s need for appreciation is paramount. Otherwise, your lover is prone to feeling like he or she has done something wrong. You reveal your love in different ways, and the independence you need, if misunderstood, can lead to a fair share of worrying on your lover’s part. Make sure your partner knows that if he or she feels comfortable enough to loosen up and be himself or herself, you will appreciate him or her all the more. Misunderstanding of each other’s unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues surrounding the definition of your relationship. Whereas your partner values partnerships more than anything, you are more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. You can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but your partner is more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. You value peace and not only believe in equality, you treat people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to your partner. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through (and your partner’s responsiveness in this department) can help smooth over rough edges.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner’s love nature. It’s intense and personal, and very passionate. While you are able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, your partner has the hardest time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for your partner to “get” why you are capable of detaching yourself, and he or she may find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. You may be quite baffled by your partner’s passionate reactions to you, as you tend to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. You value objectivity and pride yourself on your ability to reason things through. You may be inclined to react to your partner’s more emotionally intense moments by giving him or her space. This is likely to frustrate your partner more, as he or she interprets your “stepping aside” as walking away—or, even worse, lack of concern for your relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other’s strength of character.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Both of you value freedom, growth, and independence in love relationships. As a result, you are unlikely to be a “joined-at-the-hip” type of couple. Each of you appreciates the need for individuality, and neither of you believes that a partnership should act to stifle this basic need. Your partner’s approach to love, however, may be a little more impulsive and emotional than yours, as you tend to be much more calm and less excitable. When your partner gets excited about something, forging ahead with gusto, your collected demeanor may feel a bit like rain on his or her parade. If your partner remembers and accepts that he or she tends to be more expressive than you, and that his or her reactions to most things are immediate and emotionally-charged, things will run more smoothly between the two of you. You are more apt to analyze a situation before letting yourself feel the energy of the moment. If you can get beyond this minor incompatibility, and treat it as an opportunity to grow, your partnership has much potential to work well. Both of you are moving forward, disinclined to stifle one another or fall into the ruts that many couples do, and this basic compatibility will most likely lay the ground for a solid yet exciting relationship foundation.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner’s Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs generally have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue between the two of you. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your partner’s manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person he or she loves. Your aloofness, on the other hand, isn’t hiding much of anything! You are genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and commitment is not your primary goal. You enjoy making friends and sharing social activities with your mate, while your partner is usually content to spend more private time with you than spreading themselves around in a social sense. Your partner tends to be more possessive of his or her partner as well. Certainly, you will give your partner plenty of space to be him- or herself, and that is a true gift. However, your partner might be looking for something more substantial. You have a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. Your ability to reason is something most people appreciate, as long as they aren’t threatened by that ability to detach yourself. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Aquarius:
No matter how different your personalities are, you share similar ideas and styles when it comes to relationships. Both of you value a partnership in which there is mental and social interaction. You are not impressed with relationships that are overly traditional or restrictive. As such, you are likely to give each other quite a bit of freedom. Whenever two people with the same Venus signs come together, the strengths lie in seeing eye to eye, and weaknesses stem from a lack of balance. In the case of Aquarius, intimacy may be wanting, as both of you are naturally inclined to live partnerships in the world of intellect. In the absence of a partner who works on creating emotional bonding and intimacy, you two may re-define partnership altogether. This could suit both of you just fine. Your union could be markedly free and different, perhaps considered unusual by some from the outside looking in. As both of you can be rather stubborn in love, there can be an imbalance. Even though you are both inclined to give the other freedom of movement and expression, neither of you is especially adaptable in terms of habits and mindsets. Although you are creative individuals, your interactions may eventually lack spunk or seem a little dry. As long as you both work on the intimate side of partnership, you will find that your relationship is progressive and exciting—and decidedly unique!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:
This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. You love to brainstorm with your partner, and in Venus in Pisces, you have found a completely fascinating brain to “pick”. At times, however, your partner might try to back off from the microscope, as he or she is certainly more sensitive and moody than you are when it comes to relationships. He or she will gladly go along with your wonderful visions and ideals, but your partner looks for a connection that runs very deep. Although he or she will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoys your enthusiasm and your visions, your partner values tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. You might find your partner a tad too sensitive. If you are receptive, your partner is more likely than most to be able to infuse your creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take you places. You can help your partner tap into his or her own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship.
 
If your Venus is in Pisces:
When your Venus is in Pisces, you love tenderly and compassionately. You are a peacemaker at heart, and your sensors are so strong that you pick up as much as possible, and perhaps more, from your partner. You have a sense of humor in love, although you have your shares of ups and downs, as you are a very sensitive person. Harshness bothers you. Wistfulness is almost as natural to you as breathing when it comes to love. No matter how you approach other areas of your life, there is a romantic side of you. You crave making a connection with a person——many would call it a deep connection, but spiritual is a better word, as your ideal love rises above rather than plunges below the mundane world.
 
You can be devastatingly attractive to some people, and your charm is of a tender and soft quality. Others sense your warmth, but also some elusiveness. As much as you want to connect and share with another person, you also resist being pinned down. You prefer to enjoy a certain amount of freedom to act on your feelings, rather than through schedules or impositions. Sometimes you attach yourself to people because you have a hard time saying “no”. However, you also have a hard time pretending for any length of time. Your exit from a relationship may not always be direct and quick. You are not always comfortable with being direct, simply because you don’t like hurting people’s feelings.
 
You can sometimes seem like a chameleon in your relationships. People who share time with you, if they were to exchange notes about you, would likely have a very different impression of you. You can seem like a completely different person with different people—not because you have a weak character, by all means. Because you are an emotional sponge, you pick up the needs of those around you. Your adaptability comes from a lack of personal boundaries in matters of the heart. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and it carries with it each and every sign. This explains, to a degree, your ability to slip into anyone’s shoes without so much as a blink. So, with Venus, the planet of love and relationship, in Pisces, it is easy for you to pick up the needs of your partner and even adopt those needs as your own. Where do your needs start and end? It can be hard for you to distinguish what it is that you want because you very spontaneously and naturally soak in the needs and wants of a partner.
 
You have an amazing capacity to understand people and to forgive. Just as you resist being pinned down to an absolute, a schedule, or a concrete definition, you also have a hard time drawing boundaries. In the process, however, you open yourself up to challenging situations and relationships. It is difficult for you to pass judgment on anyone in an absolute sense, as you have compassion for human failings, but sometimes it is the only way to close yourself off from a bad situation. Don’t let others take advantage of your hospitality and empathy. Anyone who sees these traits as signs of weakness is likely preying on them! The right lover for you will recognize your kindness and your willingness to slip into someone’s shoes as signs of strength! When that special someone has touched your heart, they are rewarded with a funny, sometimes kooky, and always tender-hearted lover. The right person for you will find you absolutely delightful, intriguingly changeable, and a treasure indeed.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:
The attraction can be intense at first, but your inherent differences in matters of the heart might get the better of your relationship in the long run. With understanding and patience, however, this partnership can be very rewarding. Your partner is more than likely the one to take the lead in this relationship. You can be somewhat shy and unsure with someone new, but very charming indeed. You possess a dreamy quality that can be very enticing to your Venus in Aries partner. But this very quality that hooks his or her interest in you in the first place, might get your partner impatient once the novelty fades away! Your elusiveness and downright evasiveness at times stand in stark contrast to your partner’s style of expressing love——so much so that it could seem completely alien to you both. Your lover is direct and forthright in love, and usually appreciates the same in others. You don’t come across in quite so clear terms, and this can confuse your partner. If the love is there, all that is needed is the understanding that you and your partner express love in distinctly different ways. As well, you enjoy understatement in romance, and your partner should understand and respect this quality. His or her bluntness may be appreciated by less sensitive souls, but you may sometimes be put off by a manner that seems far too brusque than necessary. In turn, you should learn to appreciate knowing exactly where you stand with your partner! It might bite sometimes, but it’s honest. You have much to offer each other once you get past the matter of differing love “styles”.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus:
Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. Your partner is strong and dependable in relationships——perhaps exactly what you need, at least most of the time! You don’t always feel strong, simply because you are a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as your Venus in Taurus lover will help ground you. You are certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships, and you may view your lover’s dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on your mood. Sometimes, you might find your lover too be a bit too set in his or her ways. Other times, you will appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your lover’s needs in partnership. You can lean on your partner when you feel the need, and that is comforting indeed. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. Your partner might sometimes complain that you are indecisive or too changeable——moody, perhaps. But if he or she recognizes that your tenderness (something that your lover is sure to value) is an absolute constant, your partner is sure to “overlook” your seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini:
Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your partner’s desire for communication is strong, and you, too, want to connect with a partner. However, your lover places more value on mental stimulation while you value the power of understatement in romance. While your partner delights in having everything defined, you have a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. You rely on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering you for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won’t get your lover very far——perhaps only frustrated! Your partner’s energy sometimes leaves you unsettled, while your elusiveness can be difficult for him or her to understand. Your partner’s playfulness may, at times, unnerve you, as you can be somewhat sensitive, although quite forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairing——both of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other’s needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer:
This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. Your partner wants to take care of the people he or she loves, offering them security along with love, and you are particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is the following fundamental difference between your love natures: your partner is more clannish, specific, and personal in his or her affections, while you incline toward universal love. The sensitivity you express doesn’t always make your lover feel special, as he or she sometimes may feel that you are in love with mankind in general, not just him or her! You may find that your partner tries to redirect your love into more focused channels. You may easily fall for the underdog, and your partner may feel that you are in need of a little directing in this respect. Your partner is also attracted to the needy, but he or she has met, in you, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and he or she may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that leaves him or her feeling a little disconcerted! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It’s an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo:
We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. Your Venus in Leo partner is very direct and generous with his or her affections. You are probably just as generous, but your manner of expressing love is markedly different than that of your partner! The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing (Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn’t come easily to them). Both of you are incurable romantics. Your partner’s style, however, is personal, while your loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but “universal” may be the best term for your love nature. Your partner appreciates your warmth, but there is something about your approach, which is somewhat indirect and evasive, that seems a little threatening to your partner’s ego. To your lover, you seem to be so warm and affectionate, but they can’t help but sense that you love everyone that way, not just him or her. Your partner, more than anything, needs to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin you down and get that specific attention that he or she craves (or demands!). You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. Your partner is likely to be quite flattered by your sentimentality and dependency. However, when your lover is unhappy with you, he or she can easily become theatrical. You may even interpret your lover’s dramas as abusive, which can shock your partner because your lover considers his or her displays as honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. You are very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your partner’s emotions in a flash. Your partner prefers you to be direct and to the point with your wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo:
This is a case of “opposites attract”, except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just that——your partner, not an enemy. Your partner will appreciate your gentleness and sympathy, although he or she is apt to find you somewhat evasive at times. This is because while your partner is happy to define love, you prefer to leave some things unspoken. (You find it more romantic that way). Faith in love is something you can teach your Venus in Virgo partner, if he or she is open to it. Your partner can help ground you, reminding you that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:
This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because the love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your partner’s love planet (Venus) is an Air sign, while yours is a Water sign. While your partner approaches relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, you instinctively respond to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by feelings in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by thought. You need some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your partner’s first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other’s unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio:
The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding for each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can be an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionally——you don’t use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Scorpio partner. Your partner is more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than you are. You love deeply and with your heart, but your partner might wonder just how exclusive your feelings are towards him or her. Your lover wants to get under your skin, and is not always thrilled to share you with the rest of the world, so when you are expressing your compassion for pretty much everyone that comes into your world, he or she may feel a tad threatened. Your partner needs to understand your love of mankind in general. He or she might worry that you stray too easily——and it’s not about you having an affair. It’s more a concern that you are too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when you have him or her? That’s the kind of attitude you might expect from your partner, and this is probably your relationship’s biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. You will appreciate your partner’s intensity and depth of feeling.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:
Both of you are inclined to look for the best in your partner, and this idealism can strengthen your bond. Your styles in love, however, can be radically different at times. While your partner is generally very direct about his or her needs in love, you don’t always know what your needs are! And, if you do, they can be hard to define. You are compassionate and intuitive, and need to “feel right” about issues in and surrounding love. Your partner’s emotions in love move much more quickly, and he or she may at times be impatient with his or her partner as a result. Your feelings in love are easily hurt, but your lover can have an attitude that truth and directness is the only way to go, and as a result, he or she may want you to toughen up. Both of you can be somewhat restless in love. This can express itself as a certain divine discontent on one end of the spectrum, or outright dissatisfaction on the other. Try to focus on the “here and now” with each other, and avoid the tendency to look beyond the partnership to fill up the holes in your relationship. Even better, accept that you cannot possibly fulfill each other’s every need, but at the same time, appreciate what each of you has to offer each other——and that is a lot!
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn:
You might be very drawn to your Venus in Capricorn partner’s aura of strength and conviction. Your partner exudes an air that he or she “has it together”, and this is very attractive to you, as you are not regimented in your feelings for others. Your partner, in turn, is likely to be intrigued with your kind and hospitable nature. You actually listen to what he or she has to say, and your willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to your more disciplined partner. If the both of you can appreciate each other’s differences in expressing love, this union can amount to a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. You might find your partner too rigid in his or her expectations from your partnership, and your lover might easily find your dreamy love nature too ethereal. This combination is a mix of Water (Pisces) and Earth (Capricorn), which can be very fertile. You will be more able than most people to tap into Capricorn’s heart, seeing the warmth underneath the somewhat cool exterior. Your partner will appreciate your adaptability and your acceptance of his or her commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well.
How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius:
This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. Your partner loves to brainstorm with a close friend and lover, and in you, he or she has found a completely fascinating brain to “pick”. At times, however, you might pull yourself from under the microscope, as you are certainly more sensitive and moody than your partner is when it comes to relationships. You will gladly go along with your lover’s wonderful visions and ideals, but you look for a connection that runs very deep. Although you will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoy your partner’s enthusiasm and vision, you value tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. Your partner might find you to be a tad too sensitive. You are more likely than most to be able to infuse your partner’s creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take him or her places. Your lover, in turn, can help you tap into your own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship.
How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Pisces:
This is such a dreamy combination! You share Venus signs in the compassionate and tender sign of Pisces. No matter how different your personalities are, this Venus connection suggests similar needs from, and views of, partnership. Both of you are willing to adapt to the person you love, and offer each other tender affection. Both the strengths and the challenges lie in this underlying similarity. Each of you tends to need a partner who will do a little “directing” and “defining” in the relationship. Where are the boundaries? This is probably the main problem you will have with each other. You are both intuitive and not particularly practical when it comes to who, where, what, when, and how in love. You both thrive on a spiritual connection with your partner. You are likely to find it in each other, but you should also be mindful of some practicalities and realities in your partnership, or you may not be heading anywhere at all! However, this is a dreamy, romantic, and sweet union of two like-minded individuals. Ideally, elsewhere in your chart comparison, there are more stimulating and grounding connections between the two of you.
