Love & Sex Secrets with Astrology:
We can learn a lot about ourselves and others through an exploration of positions, placements, and aspects in astrology birth (natal) charts. Love and sex are areas of our lives that intrigue us all. There are specific things to look for in astrology that will help shed light on individual temperaments, preferences, and styles. At Cafe Astrology, we offer a wide variety of articles on these highly charged topics:
Venus, the goddess of love, reveals much about the way we approach relationships, romance, and love. Its placement by sign, house, and aspect shows how and where we go about expressing love.
To learn more about how you–and others–express feelings of love, as well as how you view relationships, look for the placement of Venus by sign in the birth chart. Learning the sign of your significant other’s Venus can go a long way towards understanding in your relationship. And, mindful relationships are even more possible when we use astrology!
