Love sign compatibility: Comparing Venus signs in Astrology
Zodiac Sign Compatibility
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! Find out your position of Venus by sign here.
Keep in mind that you can use these compatibility interpretations for Sun Signs as well!
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 their 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 their 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 they are, your partner is nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in their own right! Your lover is strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge your partner out of their 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, they 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 their 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 offense 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 they treat 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 them 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 folks—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 they are, but in order for this to work, they 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 them 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. They are a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. They will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but your lover does want some appreciation for all of their 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.
