The Way You Love, For Each Venus Zodiac Sign In Astrology

How each zodiac sign loves has less to do with their Sun sign, and more to do with your Venus sign. The Sun is what you do, how others perceive you, and your energy or vitality. 

As we all know, there are twelve zodiac signs in astrology, and each of us belongs to one based on the date of our birth. However, what most people don't know is we all belong to a Venus sign as well. 

Venus rules love, partnership, and relationships too. It's how you view property and the way you view all things beautiful in the world. Venus is related to matters of the heart.

With the idea of a summer romance dancing around in our heads, it's only right that we take the necessary steps towards figuring out just what we need to do in order to find love. 

Venus is known as the planet of love and femininity. It controls the romantic sides of our lives, and a lot can be discovered about us and our relationships based on our horoscope sign

Some signs are very in touch with this side, such as Taurus and Libra, who are the two zodiac signs ruled by the planet Venus. Love comes naturally to them, making their love lives some of the best out there.

Personally, my Venus sign is in Cancer. This means that I am capable of deep, long-lasting connections, and that I am very committed to the person I love. As someone who's generally labeled as the "relationship type" this makes perfect sense. Flings don't exist in my life, and that's okay, we're all different when it comes to love and dating.

Everyone loves differently, and sometimes it can be difficult to understand why that is. We might have a great connection with someone on a friendship level, but romantically it's just not there. By understanding both your Venus sign and the sign of your partner, or someone you're interested in, you can discover the best way to make your relationship work. 

If you're not sure what your Venus sign is, you can create a birth chart to find out where yours lies. All you need to know is your birth date, time and place and soon you will be able to create a deeper understanding of your love life, per astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

If you're Venus sign is in Aries, you desire fresh love that comes with lots of energy, excitement and wonder. You desire a loving relationship that feels fresh each day and limits what's mundane and disinteresting. Your lovers may find you to be irresistable and sexy.

You may often give up on a relationship that becomes overly complicated, but not until you've tried hard to make it work, even if it means fighting a bit before throwing in the towel. Sorry for the person who loses you though. Once you're done, you're done. You won't hold a grudge, but you certainly won't give your heart up again.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

If you're Venus sign is in Taurus, you love sensual things. A home cooked meal is the way to your heart. You aren't likely to date someone who isn't wise with their money or dismissive of your feelings. You are slow to fall in love, but once you do, you are committed to the very end, even if you're made to look like a fool for believing in the wrong person. It can take you a long time to get over a heart wound when the arrow hurt you deeply.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

If you're Venus sign is in Gemini, you love to be active and going out with the person you love. You need to share your heart openly in a judgment free zone. You don't like labels or to be put into a box. The person who loves you needs to understand that you need space but also intimacy. It's a balancing act, but aren't you worth it? Heck, yes!

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

If you're Venus sign is in Cancer, you are not someone who lets people in too easily but you are tender to even strangers, and this can get you into trouble because people who don't know you may think you like them more than a friend when that's not the case.

You don't mind a little flirty stuff, but when you feel seriously in like, those little flirtacious acts of yours seems to turn into shy moments. In fact, when you're shy around your crush, it's frustrating, but that's how you know when you're starting to fall in love. 

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

If you're Venus sign is in Leo it is an all or nothing love and relationship and the person you choose really needs to understand that. You will not be ignored and if you are, you'll get hurt, but you won't stick around to ask why. Why should you anyway? Your pride always comes first. Ego wounds are not allowed. 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If you're Venus sign is in Virgo, you are a caretaker and you also love to share stories and pieces of wisdom. You are the first person to help pack up a house if a friend is moving or to bring cookies or some advice when a person isn't feeling well. You love deeply and hard core. You aren't too easily pushed away either. In fact, if your loved one is wounded, you can carry the love longer than most any other zodiac sign. 

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

If your Venus sign is in Libra, you are easy to please and eager to enjoy the relationship without too much negativity. You might be a great friend first and then a lover. You are open to be both. The person who gets to be with you will find a soulmate and comforter during good and bad times. You love with all your heart.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If you're Venus sign is in Scorpio, you are intense and mysterious and don't like your relationship to be public knowledge. You don't want anyone to think your lover is available though, and that makes a bit of a problem. You need to know that you have someone in your life that you can trust to the end, and if there's a doubt, it can be a bye-bye, thank you, next situation. 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If you're Venus sign is in Sagittarius, you love from the mind to your heart. In fact, someone who encourages you to think can get your attention a lot faster than just a pretty face or a nice body. You are not often one who likes to stay in one place, either. If you're in love, you'll want your lover to travel with you and to see the world through each other's eyes. 

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

If your Venus sign is in Capricorn, you are someone who will give the best of you, even if you've been broken hearted in the past. Your humor is often used to protect and hide your hurt feelings. What people may think of as a cool exterior is really a soft soul on the inside. 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

If you're Venus sign is in Aquarius, you are someone who approaches love logically. Of course, you love in romantic ways but you also want things to make sense which is why you aren't afraid to embrace a non-traditional relationship. You might consider a long distance relationship or to be in an open one, it all depends. You love love and life and wouldn't want someone to sacrifice theirs to make you happy.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

If you're Venus sign is in Pisces, you may fall in love with the idea of a person first and then later realize there's some thing that you missed that makes you wonder if you can stay around and work the relationship out. You might actually dump a person you love for this reason and then come back to try again. If they can make it through that test of love, you are true blue to the end.
