Wouldn't it be so much easier if you knew that the person you were dating was right for you from the very beginning?

Instead of going on a bunch of dates and realizing after months of being together that he's just not all he's cracked up to be, you could know immediately whether you were wasting your time or not. That would definitely be my wish.

I would even want to know how things would end up years from now if I stayed with the right guy – hey, you never know how things will change over the course of a few years, right?

Of course, we can't always know what the future of a relationship will hold, and it's sometimes better to be in a relationship that turns out to be a bust in the end because you wouldn't have learned a valuable lesson otherwise.

Sometimes, that lesson is deep, like "don't move in with someone until you've learned how to live on your own" and sometimes the lesson isn't as deep, like "see how (and if) he cleans up after himself, so you don't spend the entire relationship doing it yourself" – either way, these are both lessons that are important to learn.


Looking to astrology is also a good way to figure out if he's worth your time. Astrology is more than just a way to learn more about yourself, you know. And there's more to it than just using your Sun sign to decipher love.

Using his Venus zodiac sign is a great way to look into how he handles relationships and love. Venus is the planet you look to when you want to learn more about your romantic desires (or someone else's romantic desires).


Is he looking for someone who will make him laugh? Does he need someone to be absolutely honest about wanting a long-term with him up front or is this something that can be a conversation down the road?

Each zodiac sign in Venus has their preferences about love and relationships, which can either be apparent or something you have to dig for.

Once you know what his Venus sign is, you can work on figuring out what he needs from his partner and if he's the right guy for you.



In all honesty, the hardest part might be getting him to tell you what his Venus horoscope sign is – or you could just do his whole birth chart instead and get your answers that way.

Once you're ready, here is how to know if he's right for you, by his Venus zodiac sign, according to astrology, by similar horoscope dates used in the zodiac. 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries in Venus is a handful, let’s just start with that. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but if you’re not as intense as he is, he might not be the one for you. You know Aries is right for you when his intensity makes your heart beat fast and makes you blush from the roots of your hair to your toes. There’s just something in the way he makes every day of your relationship feel like the first day that is so attractive to you.


But knowing if he’s right for is about more than just his intensity. If you’re also drawn to his passionate, in and out of the bedroom, that’s important. Whenever he’s faced with a challenge – be it at work or in his personal life – his ability to handle whatever life throws at him with determination is admirable. Plus, the fact that he’s very fiery and smolderingly sexy definitely doesn’t hurt.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus in Venus is the partner everyone wants, if their idea of the ultimate relationship is one that is full of slow jams, silk sheets, and scented candles. You know that Taurus is right for you if your toes start to curl in anticipation before you even see him. He’s obviously a very sensual person – touching in any way a very integral part of his needs – but he doesn’t let it make him look weird or over the top.

When you’re not in the bedroom, Taurus’ affectionate personality is still very much in play. You might be most drawn to the way he rubs little circles in your palm when you’re holding hands or the way he always kisses your forehead good night. Taurus loves to be in love, and when he knows that you’re right for him, he’ll turn on romance. It’s when you look forward to those moments as much as he does that you know it’s right.


GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini in Venus is a very interesting zodiac sign, which makes it easy to see why so many people would want to get to know him intimately. When you’re still in the “getting to know you” phase with Gemini, it can be easy to want to get swept away in a whirlwind romance with him. Knowing if he’s right for you starts with his curious nature; the thing that makes him the perfect partner for long chats and thought-provoking questions.

When Gemini isn’t picking your brain and trying to figure out if you’re right for him, he’s being very flirty. One of the best things about Gemini is that you never get bored of his flirty attitude, playful touching, and naughty texts. But he is a very complex creature, too. To know for sure if he’s right for you, make sure you see every side of his personality (there are a lot). He’ll always keep you on your toes, so you have to be ready.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer in Venus is the personification of the saying “a gentleman in the streets and a freak in the sheets” because he is somehow able to be both intoxicatingly sexy and still very caring. He’s the kind of man who will make you a home cooked meal for dinner and then whisper in your ear that desert will be in the bedroom when you’re ready for it. Talk about swoon-worthy, am I right?


Cancer’s tenderness spans across to all corners of the relationship. You’ll know he’s the right zodiac sign for you when you feel totally satisfied with him. He’s the man who knows how to keep you happy no matter what and if you feel completely at home around him without wondering if things could be better, then Cancer is definitely the right man for you.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo in Venus doesn’t have time to wait around and decide if you’re in or out of the relationship. Why? Because he loves HARD and he needs a partner who is ready for that kind of commitment. Not sure if you’re in it for the long haul? Then you’re probably also unsure if he’s right for you. Leo’s fiery personality perfectly complements his fiery need for love and affection. When you start craving his touch and company, that’s big.


Leo is a very independent zodiac sign, to begin with, so he needs a partner who will be able to keep up with him. Knowing he’s right for you isn’t about looking to him for clues but rather looking within yourself. When you can meet his constant need for creativity and are able to complement his sultry playfulness in the bedroom, that’s when you know this relationship is meaningful.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo in Venus is one of those zodiac signs that would much rather be single than be with someone who doesn’t matter to them. If you’ve been able to stick around for a while now, that means you’re something special to him. But to know if he’s right for you is a whole other thing. Virgo needs someone who appreciates his thoughtfulness above all else, especially as someone who is always paying close attention to detail.

This attention to detail comes in all forms, including in the bedroom where Virgo is a very attentive, sensual lover. While it’s easy to claim he’s right for you just because he knows how to make your toes curl, it’s also important for him to have a partner he can have intelligent conversations with. He knows better than anyone that a relationship needs to be built on a strong, complex foundation to really last.


LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The easiest way to know if Libra in Venus is right for you is to be very aware of how you feel when you’re with him. Libra is always a calm individual, but when he’s with someone he loves, this calmness feels more like a quiet comfort. When you’re with him, if it feels like you’re in a bubble of safety and stillness, he’s probably perfect for you.

Libra isn’t the kind of person to want a chaotic, loud partner; he needs someone who can be his safe haven away from all the craziness of the world. He also believes in fairness, which means he needs someone who will work with his cooperative behavior – NOT try to argue with him about every little thing. Libra is also the right man for you if you can’t help but blush at his romantic side. What can he say? He’s so dreamy.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio in Venus might have a hard time opening up to someone at first, but once he knows for sure that you’re worth keeping around, he likes to get very intense very fast. Scorpio is intense in everything he does, and he needs a partner who will not only understand that but also encourage it, too. Knowing if he’s right for you is about being able to handle every side of him, not just the ones that are easy.


Scorpio needs a partnership that is soulful and deep. He wants to know that you will be able to do most everything with as much heart and soul as he does – and he’ll know right away if you’re really in this relationship 100 percent. Scorpio is also a very seductive zodiac sign, but he can sometimes lose interest quickly. If his romantic streak grows as your relationship does, you’ll know he’s right for you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

When you’re with a Sagittarius in Venus, there is always one thing about him that can help you decide if he’s right for you: He makes you laugh. Sagittarius doesn’t try very hard to be funny, but he knows how to make people laugh a lot. And if he is always cracking cheesy jokes to get you to smile and roll your eyes, he’s into you.


But his funny side isn’t the only thing that matters in this relationship. Sagittarius also wants to know that there will be ample time to have intelligent, deep conversations together. When neither of you can sleep, his idea of fun is staying up and sharing thought-provoking questions. He wants to know that you will be able to challenge and surprise him, while still giving him the independence he needs. If you can, then he’s the one.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You hear it all the time when discussion of Capricorn in Venus comes up, but it’s still very important to remember: Capricorn sees relationships as investments; if he is initiating a relationship with you, it’s because he sees a future with you. He doesn’t date just because, so before even deciding if he could be right for you, you need to remember that.

Capricorn is looking for stability in his relationship. Knowing that you will always be there for him (and he’ll be there for you) is HUGE – there’s nothing worse than a flake in his opinion. As a powerful zodiac sign, he wants someone who can be the other half of a power couple; someone who can be his equal and give as much as they take. He’s more than generous in love, but he wants you to be, too.


AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius in Venus is an unconventional dater. He doesn’t always see the point in being exclusive with someone, but at the same time, he’s been known to take on a one-on-one relationship, too. If he’s right for you, you’ll see his need for independence and a relationship built on a foundation of trust as something you can fully get behind.

Aquarius is just as strong alone as he is in a relationship, so don’t ever think that he needs to be with someone. He’s looking for someone he can love fiercely without always having to be connected at the hip with. For him, relationships are much more spiritual than anything. So, having someone to share deep conversations with, throw away the dating rulebook with, and vibe on a different plane is right for him.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces in Venus might play like he doesn’t know a lot about love and relationships, but being the last zodiac sign of astrology means that’s he is wise beyond his years. He doesn’t like playing games in relationships because there’s a good chance he already knows exactly what he wants out of them. He’s the right one for you if you know what you want to – don’t waste his time (or yours) being coy when you can cut to the chase.


This doesn’t mean he wants someone to rush through all of the romance, though. He really just wants someone who can love as deeply and honestly as he can. When he’s The One, you can feel it in your bones; the two of you can be very intuitive with each other. He also wants someone he can share his fondness for romance and seduction with, as well. A relationship with Pisces is like one, long love affair, after all.
