Compatibility astrology is a complex art, and when done professionally there are hundreds of variables to take into account, not just sun signs. Did you know that compatibility between your and your partner’s Venus signs is just as important? Read on to find out why, and if you don’t know what your Venus sign is, why not order one of our Astromatcha astrology compatibility reports and find out?
Venus is known as the planet of love and romance, so its position in your birth chart is crucial when it comes to assessing compatibility with a partner. An astrologer will look at how your Venus interacts with the whole of your partner’s chart, but comparing the two Venus signs will give you a good basic insight into compatibility. Astrology is a lot like a language in matters of love, and Venus tells us how you and your partner approach love, what attracts each of you, and how you handle romance.
If you have Venus in Aries, your approach to love is self centred but passionate, and you love the thrill of the chase. You are an impulsive lover, and highly sexual, but problems in a partnership bring out your latent temper, whether or not your sun sign is prone to temper. The best Venus sign matches for you would be lovers with Venus in a fire sign, for a tempestuous relationship, or in an air sign. People with Venus in Taurus, by contrast, are attracted to strong, stable types and take a long time to warm up into a relationship. Venus in Taurus individuals think carefully about commitment and will consider a partner’s financial status as much as his or her looks and kindness. Regardless of sun sign, when it comes to compatibility, astrology suggests that Venus in Taurus is best matched with another Venus earth sign, or with a Venus water sign.
People with Venus in Gemini have a very flirtatious approach to love, and tend to be quite fickle too, often changing partners frequently when young. For the Venus in Gemini person, a fun, intelligent companion is a must, and these people are attracted to someone with a sense of humour or a way with words. Compatibility astrology for Venus in Gemini would be best with a Venus fire sign, or with another air sign. If you have Venus in Cancer, however, you’re attracted to sincerity first and foremost, with a side helping of security being a boost too. You want a lover who is what they say they are, and who expresses their love towards you in a gentle, nurturing way. The best astrological match for a Venus in Cancer person is someone with Venus in a water sign, or a stable earth sign.
Those with Venus in Leo are exuberant, demonstrative, affectionate and larger than life lovers, and are attracted to flamboyant, powerful, charismatic people. When it comes to compatibility, astrology signals that the best matches for Venus in Leo people would be those with Venus in a fire sign or an air sign, but successful, ambitious, Venus in earth sign people also fit the bill. If you have Venus in Virgo, by contrast, you’ll be attracted to quiet, studious, discriminating people and will be turned off by too much drama or ostentatiousness. You approach love from a practical standpoint, and may well fall for someone who needs your help. The best partner for a Venus in Virgo person is another Venus in earth person or a Venus in water person, particularly the more sensitive types like Pisces and Cancer.
How about those with Venus in Libra? Well, if you have Venus in this romantic, relationship driven sign then you’re likely to be quite obsessed with finding and keeping your partner, even to the extent of being willing to give up your own identity. The best partners for Venus in Libra folk are Venus in earth sign people who keep the relationship grounded, although you tend to be attracted to dominant Venus in fire sign types. If you have Venus in Scorpio, your intense, dramatic, passionate approach to love both fascinates and terrifies others, and your charisma is potent indeed. When it comes to compatibility astrology, the best partners for Venus in Scorpio people are those with strong, stable Venus in earth positions, or sometimes fellow Venus in water sign people.
Venus in Sagittarius people are confident and easy going in their approach to love, but do seek exciting, spontaneous partners and are turned off by tradition and restraint. In matters of compatibility, astrology suggests that the best partners for Venus in Sagittarius are other Venus in fire signs people, although those with Venus in an air sign are good potential partners too. If you have Venus in Capricorn, almost the opposite applies – for you, tradition, stability and authority are turn-ons, and you’ll be repelled by anyone who breaks the rules. The best matches for Venus in Capricorn people are others with Venus in earth sign, although you make an exception for people with Venus in fire signs, provided you think you can calm them down!
If you have Venus in Aquarius, romance isn’t that high on your priority list, but what you do seek in a lover is an intellectual match. Freedom is vital to you, so the best compatibility astrology matches for Venus in Aquarius are those with Venus in another air sign, who will understand your point of view. Those with Venus in Pisces are incurable romantics, hopelessly in love with love itself, and attracted to wistful, spiritual, warm hearted people, like those with Venus in a water sign, or sometimes an earth sign.
