Are you what he's looking for?

Admit it: when you first meet a guy you want to know everything about them. However, it can be tricky because you don’t want to completely cyberstalk them; that would be too creepy and you can’t do an informal "question and answer" with his friends and family.

And you know if you ask him too many questions too soon, you’ll scare him away. No one wants to be thought of as obsessive, especially after the first date.


You can try to analyze every body movement and every word said, but you also know there’s a lot of information from what he doesn’t say.

As you’re frantically trying to determine if you have any chemistry, if you seem compatible, or even if he’s open to being in a relationship, you may miss all kinds of other important information such as does he learn from is mistakes, is he a good sport, and/or does he have pets?

As always, astrology is a good place to start when you’re trying to find out if someone might good relationship material for you. If you want to know how he acts in a relationship and how important love is to him, you need to look at his Love sign, aka his Venus sign.

You’re probably familiar with Venus, the goddess of love, and that’s where the planet Venus got its name. Venus is the symbol of the qualities of love, romance, sensuality, art, beauty, touch, and desirability.


Before you read ahead, here's how to find your guy's Venus sign.


You’ll need to know the date and time of his birth and the place where he was born. You can either ask him directly or come up with another brilliant way of finding out. Once you have that information, you can find out his astrological birth chart which will include his Venus sign.


The Venus sign is the sign that Venus was in at the time of your birth. Sometimes the Venus sign is the same as the person’s Sun sign, but not always. The Venus sign is never more than two signs away from the Sun sign. So, if someone is an Aquarius, their Venus sign couldn’t be in Scorpio.

OK, now that you know his Venus sign, what does it say about what men want from women? Specifically, what he wants in a partner?

Venus sign in ARIES

If his Venus sign is in Aries, he's attracted to someone who challenges him, who speaks their mind and keeps him on his toes. He doesn't want someone who'll let him win the race — he wants someone who not only wins but is a little obnoxious about winning. He wants someone who can banter with the best of them, is smart, and who doesn't hold back on her opinion. She's independent, assertive and confrontational, and she won't make it easy for him, which is exactly what he likes.

If his Venus sign is in Taurus, he wants a woman who can't keep her hands off him. She'll be very sensual and tactile. She's very feminine without being too high-maintenance. She's caring, loving and kind to everyone. She has her own opinions but can admit when she's wrong and is someone who gets her way without being aggressively confrontational. She's somewhat old-fashioned and would definitely make love and family higher priorities than having a career.

If his Venus sign is in Cancer, he can't resist a woman who is sensitive and empathetic. The more caring and compassionate she is, the better. He's not afraid of emotion and he doesn't want a woman who isn't comfortable with her own feelings. It's not a problem if she's needy or clingy; in fact, that makes him feel strong and complete. Since the relationship should be a two-way effort, he wants someone who shows the same care to him that he shows to her.

If she's well-read and kind of a know-it-all, then he'll be instantly smitten.
