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.
(See Venus in Sagittarius for more details on the Venus in Sagittarius temperament).
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 twonot 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!
