The first planet to look at when dealing with compatibility is Venus. Venus is the planet that guides romantic desires and love.

Mars in Aries + Venus in Aries

Mars in Aries is known for being intensely confident and assertive.

He knows exactly what he wants and will go to great lengths to get it.

When he finds someone he wants to pursue, he can be quite persistent – but he’s also very romantic and has the ability to sweep just about anyone off their feet.

Mars in Taurus + Venus in Taurus

Mars in Taurus is sensual and romantic by nature.

He’ll take it slow with you at first, but once you give yourself fully to him and let him know that you are in it 100 percent, he will turn up the volume on his romance and intimacy.

The world's a stage for a Mars in Leo.
