Astrology's Best Love Compatibility Match For You, Based On Your Venus Sign

If there are some discrepancies between you and your zodiac sign, that does not mean astrology has completely failed you.

What’s known as your zodiac sign — that is, the one you look at for your horoscope — is actually your sun sign. You have other signs as well that contribute to your personality, likes and dislikes, and compatibility. The most impactful signs, aside from your sun sign, are your moon and ascending sign.

In terms of zodiac compatibility, however, your Venus sign is the most important. Which makes sense, as Venus is the planet of love.

Your Venus sign determines how you love. It can be completely different than your sun sign, so if you’re looking for love, you’ll definitely want to look at your Venus sign for some guidance.
