Or having the ability to read each other’s emotions or body language better than verbal communication. Read my full article to Venus in Taurus here.

Your main focus when it comes to your love life is to experience raw love. What I mean by this, is that you’re not too keen on using technology to show love. You show love through effort and action.

Venus in Leo 

Venus in Leo indicates that you’re the type of person that doesn’t like to make first moves. Your way of flirting is to send hints so your crush can make the first move. During this time, you also tend to pay more attention to how you appear to the outside world. Therefore, paying more attention to your clothing and your hygiene. However, you also tend to lean more towards the identity of your crush. What I mean by this is that you start to dive deeper into their interests to find something the two of you have in common. This will also allow you to be in their presence more often or to seem similar. With your Venus in Leo, you’re like a spider trying to trap your crush in your web. 

Venus in Virgo 

Someone with their Venus in Virgo loves abundantly and publicly. This means that you’re not shy to show the world who you love and how much you love them. Your lover is the center of your world and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make them happy. This type of love can be both exhilarating and paralyzing. You feel a sense of adrenaline when you think about your lover, which makes you want to do whatever it takes to please them. This might also have a darker side when you stop to prioritize who you are and what you want. The key of your relationship should be to give energy and to get energy.  

Venus in Libra 

If your Venus is positioned in Libra you’re known for your soft side and positive aura. This attracts a lot of people that seek someone who can be their safe haven. Your lover is in love with you, because they feel understood and supported when they’re around you. Your intelligence allows you to keep your lover’s head high by giving them the energy to move forward. In your relationship you’re keen on growing with your partner in terms of emotions and materialistic aspects. 

Venus in Scorpio 

You are hard to unravel if your Venus is in Scorpio. People that have a crush on you find it difficult to impress you or to make a move on you. Your mysterious demeanor also makes it hard for them to understand what you’re interested in or what you like to do. You only allow a certain amount of people with clear and genuine intentions to have a glimpse into what you seek in relationships. You enjoy deep talks with your lover so, you can unravel what makes your lover tick. The other way around is a bit more complex, because of Scorpio’s traits. 

Venus in Sagittarius 

Your Venus in Sagittarius makes you put emotional bonds before anything else in a relationship. You seek a partner that can easily vibe with you. And someone that can deeply engage in topics. You don’t like silence or moments of dullness in your relationship. This is why you always seek action or engagement that can stimulate your emotions. Your relationship should be like a musical. Constantly renewing, energetic and meaningful. 

Venus in Capricorn 

If your Venus is in Capricorn, you only care about your lover when you’re in a relationship. You don’t care about their belongings or their assets. All you care about is the person that stands in front of you. You’re in love with your lover’s truest self. And that is comprised of their emotions, intelligence and past experiences. Therefore, these are the only aspects of your lover which you fall in love with. 

Venus in Aquarius 

Someone with their Venus in Aquarius is bad at showing their love for someone. You could be very interested and deeply in love with someone. And it still may not appear like you genuinely care about that person. Therefore, your partner should get accustomed to your “not so romantic” romance. This indicates that you deeply love someone (which you do) but, your words and actions fall so short to show it. As time moves on your lover will notice that you love language is different to other people. But just as important and more meaningful. This also gives you the ability to create a special bond with your partner. 

Venus in Pisces 

Someone with their Venus in Pisces is a loyal lover. You have the ability to stay true to your promises and your values when it comes to your relationship. When you fall in love you put all of your eggs in one basket. This indicates that all of your energy and romance is only focused on one special person. As a result of this your relationship is deep and rich.  

Why you should know what your Venus Sign means

Your Venus Sign depicts your love personality. More specifically, the way you show others that you love them. And the way you act when in you love. Therefore, your love traits play a major role in the relationship that you enter. And the relationship that you stay in. 

Your love personality is important to understand so you can see how you influence your partner. This is necessary for self-reflection and to understand if you’re the ideal partner for your someone.  

Another reason you should know what your Venus Sign means. Is so that you know what you bring into a relationship. This will make you think about the things your partner should bring into a relationship. A relationship is only successful when two lovers complement each other. In other words when you bring something to the table that your partner can’t. And when your partner brings something to the table that you can’t bring. As a result of this your relationship will revolve around this connection. 

In short: your Venus Sign makes you reflect on how you act when you’re in love aka your love persona. And it will enable you to realize what you bring into a relationship. Therefore, allowing you to look for a partner that brings something that you can’t bring into the relationship.
