Venus in Aries

Venus in Aries is the most impulsive of all the Venus signs, leaping straight into relationships, usually on the basis of romantic attraction alone. Practical difficulties are no deterrent at all to them. There is something of the knight in shining armor about these people - they like to feel that they are rescuing someone from a miserable existence and carrying them off to eternal bliss.

Idealistic and somewhat naive, the Venus in Aries person expects the best of everyone. Straightforward and direct to the point of bluntness themselves, it never occurs to them that some people are devious and manipulative. Because of this they feel terribly hurt and let down when people betray their trust.

Venus in Aries likes to take the initiative and tends to come on pretty strong, which can be very alarming to more timid types. Aries has little time for the subtle approach, preferring things to happen now, and lacking patience with people who cannot make up their minds.

Because Venus is the relating principle and Aries is concerned with being itself, there is going to be some degree of internal conflict between the self and the other; and it may be quite difficult for the Venus in Aries person to work out a balance between the need for independence and personal self-expression and the need for relationship and sharing.

Venus in Aries needs space and freedom in relationships, and appreciates independence in others. As lovers, they are warm and demonstrative, giving their love freely and open¬heartedly. They need, and can create, an element of excitement in their relationships, so that life is never dull for someone involved with them.

The person with Venus in Aries tends to demand attention and will definitely want to be the number one attraction in their partner's life. Their love is full of heat and intensity which can quickly change to dramatic rage when they feel hurt. Venus in Aries gives drama and passion, together with romanticism and naive hopefulness. For the Venus in Aries person, the eternally burning flame of hope is what makes life worth living; and they will never cease to pursue their vision of the perfect love.

Venus in Aries: Venus rules the principle of love and reaching out to others. Venus in Aries indicates those who tend to be aggressive in their emotional self-expression. Their outgoing natures lend enthusiasm and sparkle to social gatherings. They have no reticence in pursuing the object of their interests, and they can be competitive when seeking the affection of others. In a female horoscope, this quality may make for an aggressive approach in which the woman chases the man. The ability of these people to be passionate in love and romance results from Mars, the ruler of Aries, which gives energy to the affections of Venus. These affections can be impulsive and unstable, however.

Venus in Aries is in its detriment, because Aries is the opposite sign to Libra, which Venus rules. For this reason people with Venus in Aries demand a lot of personal attention and tend to be self-centered.

If Venus is afflicted in Aries, the native's manners can be coarse, lacking refinement. When Venus in Aries is well aspected, there is a positive, cheerful attitude. There is also the ability to be actively creative in artistic pursuits.

Venus in Aries: This is a difficult position for Venus. Here, the planet that represents female energy is placed in the most masculine of signs. Consequently, Venus has a hard time expressing its natural characteristics of harmony, union and romantic love in a sign that is individualistic and combative.

In partnerships of all kinds, but especially love relationships, you insist on being the dominant partner and are not willing to compromise very much in order to maintain domestic tranquility. In fact, you don't really want your relationships to be peaceful and harmonious. You prefer to maintain a high level of tension in your relationships, and find conflict and arguments stimulating and exciting. Often you start fights - verbal or even physical ones - with your partner, just to see the fireworks. If things stay calm for long, you become bored.

You see love as a contest and partners as opponents to be conquered. It is the chase that intrigues you most; and you are likely to lose interest in someone once he / she succumbs to your advances. The way to keep your attention is to keep you guessing. Always looking for new experiences, new challenges, you tend to be rather promiscuous, or at least to change partners frequently. Whether male or female, you are usually the aggressor, easily pursuing your 'quarry' rather than waiting for hi, / her to make the first move.

Sex is more important to you than affection; and unless you have water signs prominent elsewhere in your chart, you may lack the ability to express tenderness and romance in love relationships.

In itself, this placement of Venus is not an indicator of an artistic sensibility. If you have artistic talent, as a result of other factors in your birth chart, you are likely to be avant-garde, even rather provocative in the way you express yourself creatively. Your style tends to be highly energetic and forceful, even abrasive or violent.

Venus in Aries: The individual is passionate, falling in love quickly, and will be demonstrative. Sexual fulfillment is of above-average importance, and an unco-operative partner will not be tolerated. Although an element of Arian selfishness may well cause problems occasionally, the individual will be generous to a loved one, making sure there are many occasions of joint enjoyment. Here is a lively friend and energetic colleague. The attitude to money is extremely enterprising, but a risk-taking element can cause financial losses. Often, there is an enjoyable second source of income, but money can still slip through the fingers.

Venus in Aries: Impulsive and demonstrative, you want to be accepted and you are not usually shy at all about pursuing the object of your affection. In love relationships, you especially enjoy the first stages of courtship and the challenge of the chase. However, it had better be all in fun in the end, as you can be quite jealous if the game goes too far!

Venus in Aries: If you value aggressive independence in relationships, you might without knowing it relate to others thoughtlessly and forcefully. Thus, you may experience an endless series of temporary alliances. In attempting to prove the Aries self-worth by disregarding the values of others, you may ultimately win the conquest yet end up alone.

Consequently, a reluctance to sustain closeness often results in a lack of confidence in your worth and ability to relate to others. When you withhold your ability for positive leadership in social situations, it may lead to a competitive viewpoint that is destructive for all concerned.

You possess the ability to take the initiative in social situations. You can be a spontaneous leader. With the natural Aries gifts of enthusiasm and courage, you inspire others to contribute to the group.

You can realize your inherent value when you share your independence in a manner that helps others to help themselves. This encourages others to actualize their potential for self-sufficiency. You can become aware that others feel insecure about their sense of self-reliance. This awareness enables you to motivate them to believe in themselves and assert their individuality. As you help others to build their own independence, you simultaneously come to a realization of your true worth.

Combining your talent for seizing leadership with the recognition of other people's feelings can lead to a sense of confidence in your ability to stimulate others to interact socially. This situation maintains your independence and validates the worth of all concerned.

Venus in Aries: Your reaction to emotional stimuli is highly personal. You will do anything for someone you love, and little for anyone or any group that has not won your personal affection. Love, sympathy, human kindness are all related to yourself; you are therefore not a great humanitarian, nor especially interested in group social problems. But you may be much interested in society - that is, social gatherings, social position, and social graces. You are warm and even ardent when you feel you are loved, but can also be touchy with friends and easily offended. This is a somewhat narrowing position for Venus, and with it you should make a conscious effort to find sympathy and understanding for people whom you don't love and who never will love you. By universalizing the Venusian vibrations, you broaden your whole nature, widen your interests and give greatest scope to your abundant emotional vitality, which benefits you in direct proportion to the number of individuals whose problems you are able to take to your heart.

Venus in Aries: In Aries, Venus is an emotional antenna - the native is sensitive, aware of how others feel and react. He wants to love and be loved - romance is the key. Without romance, he withers, becomes discouraged, broods, worries complains.

The astrologer's job is to help him discover the romance that is everywhere, available, ready to be grasped and enjoyed. The native tends to be too romantic about romance! He often doesn't recognize the real thing and is taken in by the phony, the imitation.

Venus in Aries: You are a bold, though potentially impatient, lover. Love for you is something that has to happen quickly, like at first sight, almost as if you are taken by storm. There also has to be a childlike, spontaneous quality to it that never settles down into an 'adult' rut of habit and predictability; love has to make something happen. The dark side to your particularly bright love nature is that you can be self-centered, impetuous and emotionally immature, causing you to give in to mere fancy. You attract with a forward but quite innocent seductiveness that is instantly beguiling; with a wild and primal sexuality that suggests a romping, playful and uncomplicated sort of pleasure and love-making; and with a youthful appeal, whatever your age, that forces progress in some way.

You repel with a selfish, demanding and minx-like nature that can drop Other quite unceremoniously; with reluctance, or possibly an inability, to give any more of yourself than is needed to keep Other where you want him / her; and with a Peter Pan complex that prevents you from accepting your social responsibilities.

You are attracted to forceful and demonstrative displays of interest and affection; to Others who are independent with, to a degree, interests other than you; and to Others who have energetic or hectic social lives that are full of exciting and individualistic people.

You are repelled by limp, unsure or, worst of all, creepy types who lack passion or conviction, for it reflects badly on your own vibrancy; by fawning or clinging characters who want mothering or constant reassurance; and by fuddy-duddy social scenes and people that lack spontaneity and a bit of wildness.

When you are alone, it could be because you have pushed one or more of the above negative traits to a point where no-one is willing or able to commit to you. One of two choices here is to recognize that Other can keep your interest if you give him / her long enough to discover how to - but not too long, of course. The second choice is to settle for the fact that you are just too young at heart, or old in body, to find anyone who will last more than a week or so - if at all. The irony here is that sooner or later you will have to settle for something - the very thing you may believe you are so averse to. Alternatively, you could be alone because love has ended as suddenly as you like it to begin - kind of living by the sword and dying by it.

Venus in Aries: Your appetite for love is quickly whetted; and you wish to possess the object of your affections without delay. If there is too much dallying about with a potential lover, you are likely to lose interest and move on to a new partner.

Your style of loving may be very intense, even violent upon occasion. On the other hand, your desires are usually satiated rather quickly, particularly if the experience is a very intense one. This enables you to thoroughly enjoy a brief but fiery affair that would leave another person unfulfilled. In a longer-range affair, however, you may feel that your partner lacks the intensity of passion you desire, or that you wear yourself out while your lover is still getting into stride.

You may have to make an effort to pace your desires and be more consistent in your tastes to match your partner's. At the same time, your lover must understand that an apparently inconsistent or fickle desire is actually one in a series of sudden but sincere enthusiasms that must be seized and enjoyed on the spot before the impulse takes another direction. Although such an affair may take some time to develop, you would be happiest with a patient and understanding lover who can adjust to your timing rather than someone whose rhythms are similar to but out of sync with yours.

Venus in Aries: You are very affectionate toward others, but you hate to be tied down by anyone. Not shy or reserved, you express your loving feelings freely, and you need to be free to love whomever you choose. When you are older and have some kind of romantic life, you may have problems in understanding the balance between your own rights and the rights of your loved one in the relationship. You are unwilling to give in to your partner, because you always want things your own way. The price you pay for this may be difficult relations with the opposite sex. While you are young, this could be a problem in your relationships. However, now is the time when you can learn how to give and how to make compromises with friends, relatives and other people.

With others, you often make no special effort to be popular and well-liked. But people usually like you anyway because you are yourself, not because you are charming. If you like someone you meet, you will not hesitate to say so. You are usually the person who starts a friendship or, later, a love relationship. You know what you want, and you are willing to go after it.

Venus in Aries: Venus is in its detriment sign. Here is 'self'-satisfaction. Where Venus loves, she is apt to do much for the loved one, but in this position she is apt to love herself through the loved one. A tendency to touchiness; and is apt to be easily offended due to self-love. Apt to be inconsiderate of others without realizing it. This is a love springing into activity with ardor and enthusiasm, but not a sustaining and nurturing kind of caring. Passion and aggressiveness can be strong; thus, Venus may lose her sweetness in this sign. The lesson needed with this placement is the ability to put oneself in the other fellow's shoes. In spite of an impulsive approach to love, Venus in Aries is idealistic, and is always seeking outwardly that which can only be found within. There is a tendency to lack stability, for Venus can tire quickly and change her mind often in the impulsive, restless sign of Aries.

Venus in Aries: You are direct and upfront about what you want. Your love nature is well-developed, but your fire can burn out just as quickly as it's ignited. Your love nature is rather me-centered, not unlike the nature of a newborn child whose cries seem to say, "Hey, what about me?!"

Your infatuations are quick and all-encompassing, and you love a chase! You tend to prefer being the one to pursue a love interest. Your love nature is Mars-ruled, which gives energy, and a level of competitiveness, to your social and romantic nature. Unless your Venus in Aries is strongly aspected by Saturn, you have no qualms, thoughts, or practical concerns when you are romantically attracted to someone—you just jump right in. When you want something (or someone), you want it now! Aries has a way of blowing desires out of proportion, with the result that they quickly become needs instead of wants. Your wants, in fact, can eclipse rationality, and there is a bit of a naive quality to your interactions with others.

Because your attractions are impulsive, you can be attracted to many different types of people. However, if you are going to share much time with someone, a rather independent type is best for you. Close sharing and intimacy can sometimes try your patience, and a whining or dependent partner will wear you out quickly. You are a highly personal lover, and you can easily become touchy and irritable. You infuse excitement into your relationships and tend to get bored fairly easily. But you are also highly demonstrative and open in matters of the heart, and your lover will appreciate this directness and spontaneity.

Venus in Aries, Sun in Taurus: If the Sun sign is Taurus, the passions are very powerful; and while this subject makes an excellent, sensual lover, the emotional level is so high that storms may well arise. At such times, possessiveness (Taurus) and selfishness (Venus in Aries) can cause serious problems; but the highs will be marvelously romantic as well as fulfilling. Over-emotional reactions can sometimes cause difficulties with friends. In money matters, the individual is clever; but a liking for luxury will prove expensive.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner who also has Venus in Aries: Sparks fly! There can be much enthusiasm in this relationship, but a clash of wills is likely, because both you and your partner want instant gratification and a certain emotional moodiness will predominate. Your cycles won't always coordinate, so there can be many ups and downs in this relationship. The passion, however, will not be wanting! In bed, when we mix fire and fire, neither of you is inclined to be receptive. Instead, you challenge each other. Look to Mars signs to see if there is a better balance of yin and yang. You are open-minded and pleasure-minded as well—and you have met your match! Each of you finds the conquest exciting, so in order to keep your relationship fresh, you might want to recreate or create new and interesting adventures. In fact, it is likely that you will do that naturally. You are confrontational lovers who are not afraid of arguments. In fact, if things become too peaceful, you might just stir the pot a little in order to get things going. Love, for you both, needs to accomplish something. It needs to be refreshed and stoked, prodded and poked, and it needs to have movement. It would be wise for you to give each other a little space, and when you are together, use your abundant energies to make things happen. Your relationship is likely to be intense and even combative at times, but it will be lively and exciting simply because both of you need it to be!

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: You crave instant gratification in love, while your Venus in Taurus partner is more than capable of taking things slow. You can benefit each other by balancing each other out, as you have markedly different styles and needs in love. You see in your partner what you lack, and vice versa. However, both of you are rather me-centered in your approach to love and this can be a difficult combination as a result. Stubbornness and clashes of will are more than likely to pepper your relationship over time. You might find your partner a tad slow, or even dull, in his or her approach to romance. Your lover is very focused on sensual pleasures and comforts, while your style is more utilitarian. Your peace-loving partner looks for harmony in his or her environment, but "harmony" looks rather monotonous in your eyes. This is a very passionate pairing, and you are likely to be the leader or aggressor in this relationship. Still, however receptive he or she is, your partner is nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in his or her own right! Your lover is strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge your partner out of his or her chosen position or stance. Although side-by-side signs are very dissimilar, the fact that we are matching yin with yang (or + with -) adds some wonderful attraction and sexual excitement to the mix. This is a powerful liaison, and although it can be challenging to get things right, you enjoy a challenge!

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Gemini: Love for both of you is equated with fun. You and your partner want to be active in your relationship, and neither of you is happy if your partnership enters a boring zone. You should be pleased with the amount of independence granted to you from each other. Together, your enthusiasm is infectious. Your partner is more intellectual than you are, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, he or she can be brought to the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with each other. You do enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticket—in fact, if the talk drags on too long, you find it mind-numbing! The key here will be to stay active with each other, being careful not to ride too high on the enthusiastic energy you two generate when together, at the expense of enjoying each other in quiet ways once in a while. You can easily become impatient with your partner's indecisiveness. As well, you may find it disconcerting when your partner's conversations invariably stray from the most favorite topic—you! Probably the biggest problem in your partnership is a sense of instability. You react to each other very impulsively, and neither of you is given to setting goals for your partnership. Living in the moment certainly infuses a sense of playfulness and fun into your relationship that is enviable, but your relationship may not always feel dependable. In fact, your powerful attraction to each other often runs hot and cold. Harnessing the energy and passion of your combined energies will not be easy, but if you can slow down once in a while and enjoy each other, this relationship can be both invigorating and rich.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: This combination definitely makes for a bit of an odd couple! Your Venus is Mars-ruled, while your partner's is Moon-ruled. There is a distinct difference between what is important to you in love, and what your partner considers important. You ride high on spontaneity, and you are quite open in your expression of feelings, if not a little erratic. Your partner tends to take his or her time when it comes to both expressing feelings and moving a relationship forward. Your partner is often defensive with feelings, while you are configured to be on the offence much of the time! At first, your markedly different styles can be wildly attractive. Later, your differences can prove to be a bone of contention. Tenderness is important to your lover, but you express love in a more direct, aggressive manner. Your assertive style can border on being downright inconsiderate at times, at least in your partner's eyes, which is the polar opposite of how he or she treats a loved one! You want instant gratification and don't have much patience for beating around the bush, but your lover often requires others to gently and subtly coax him or her to open up and express feelings. What it boils down to is a difference in styles of expressing love and affection, and understanding that your styles are often dramatically different can go a long way toward harmony. If you are willing to learn from each other, you may become an expert at infusing your relationship with energy and excitement, and your partner can offer the support and security that doesn't come quite as naturally to you.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Leo: Both of you are spirited lovers. With both of your Venuses in fire signs, you and your partner approach love in a fiery, direct manner. Sparks fly between you! Each of you falls in love quickly and intuitively, although your partner tends to take love a little more seriously than you do. Both of you are rather me-centered in love, which of course can be somewhat problematic! You and your Venus in Leo lover are competitive folk—just be sure you don't compete with each other too much. Friendly competition can be invigorating, however, and can help maintain the vigor and excitement you both crave in love. You admire each other a great deal, although your pride may not allow you to show that admiration all the time. Because your temperaments in love are similar in many ways, when the relationship is good, it's very good; when the relationship is bad, it's very bad! The ego-stroking and flattery that your partner craves may not always be forthcoming with you, because you incline to be somewhat blunt and unpolished in style. Your partner is likely to appreciate your simple charm, or find it infuriating. Probably it's a bit of both! Your partner's style of expression in love is certainly more flowery. Chances are just as good that you will find your partner exciting and infuriating at the same time! Let your lover know how special he or she is, but in order for this to work, he or she will definitely need to share the spotlight once in a while. You are both strong people in love, and you can have a lot of fun together.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: Here, we are mixing Fire (you!) and Earth (Virgo - your partner!). It's not an easy combination, for certain, but it has its merits. One of the most noticeable differences between you and your partner is your need for stimulation and excitement contrasted with your partner's desire for safety and security. You can be quite active together, and pour some energy into activities, but your impulsive and competitive nature may leave your partner feeling insecure at times. You'll need to take the time, every once in a while, to reassure your lover, and let him or her know how much you appreciate them. Both of you are simple in your needs, but those needs are markedly different. You are not the most flowery of lovers, and neither is your partner, but your lover might find you downright insensitive at times. He or she is a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. He or she will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but your lover does want some appreciation for all of his or her efforts. Both of you value honesty, and you'll generally get it from each other. You will likely be flattered by your partner's willingness to please, in the moments when you stop to notice this trait. Money matters will most certainly bring some conflict, as your partner is more cautious and a natural worrier and you can be the classic impulse buyer. Shared interests are important to your partner, and this may also be a problem, as you and your partner are really quite dissimilar! However, love can make this combination work, especially if both of you take the time to learn from the other.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Libra: Here we have a case of "opposites attract"! The attraction to each other can be very powerful, mainly because each of you seems to offer what the other lacks. Your direct—even aggressive—approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your partner's life, as he or she tends toward indecision. It's a stark contrast to your partner's more passive, mental approach to love. Note that your Venusian rulers are Venus and Mars! This promises much excitement. Your partnership may be better if it's an affair rather than a long-standing relationship, as the differences between you that spark the initial attraction can grow to be difficult over time. However, with love and understanding, this relationship can work! Your partner is a somewhat dependent creature, while you are much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your lover's indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because you don't have vast stores of patience to wait. If you see someone (or something) you like, you'll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and you figure that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. Your partner, on the other hand, notoriously takes his or her time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, your lover values reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as he or she is when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active persona in the sense that you definitely need a partner who will compromise, but your partner may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, you don't always listen to reason—you are more impulsive. The best bet for long-term compatibility with this pairing would be to open your hearts to each other and learn. Somewhere between your polar opposites is a balance. If you can't find that point, your relationship may very well turn into a game of tug-of-war.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio: An unusual combination, but very intriguing when two powerful Venus placements come together! The attraction can be exciting, but harmony can be difficult to attain. You are direct while your partner is more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido fluctuates tremendously, and your partner's is constant. You live for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but your partner has an eye on commitment and constancy. Sexually, you are likely to have a powerful union, but emotionally there can be difficulties because your styles of expressing love and affection are so contrary. Perhaps this combination is better when the relationship is shorter term—the memory of your times together could be powerful. Still, this combination can work in a committed, long-term relationship with heaps of love and understanding. Adjustments will most surely have to be made. Butting heads is something you are likely to do, as both of you want your way in relationships, but both of you will have to learn to concede to each other now and again! Passions will run high, and if you can harness that energy and put it to work for your relationship in a positive way, then the union will be satisfying indeed.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius: Because both of you fall in love intuitively, almost on impulse, your relationship is almost certain to start quickly. Neither of you takes the time to evaluate potential partners on practical levels. Your interest is aroused suddenly and is based usually on pure infatuation and attraction, and the same goes for your Venus in Sagittarius partner. We are mixing two fiery Venus placements here, and this can make for a very stimulating—even invigorating—pairing. For the most part, you will inspire each other, and mutual encouragement is more than likely. Love for both of you needs to be active and growth-oriented. Your partner may be more intellectual than you, enjoying sharing his or her philosophies with you perhaps more than you would do naturally. Neither of you is afraid of a good heated debate, or outright argument, so tempers may flare at times, but neither of you is one to hold grudges and you both are willing to move forward and forget about problems easily. Both of you love to laugh and play with your partners, and neither of you likes to be tied down. Giving each other space is important, but it is likely to come naturally for both of you.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: The differences in your styles of expressing love should be pretty obvious right from the start. This can be a source of much fascination, and some misunderstandings as well. Your partner's relationship needs are decidedly more practical and earthy than yours. In matters of the heart, you act first and think later. Your partner considers all of the ins and outs of the partnership: is it practical? Will it work down the road? Do you work well with each other? None of these things are quite as important to you, as you tend to think in the here and now, while your partner is future-minded. If you share your finances with your Venus in Capricorn lover, he or she will certainly help curb your habit for impulsive spending, and whether you appreciate that depends entirely on you! You might find your partner a little too serious at times, but hopefully he or she will enjoy the fact that you are capable of infusing relationships with fun and activity. Because you are more forthright in love, it is likely you will be responsible for getting this relationship going, but if you think you can always be the leader, you might have another thing coming! Yes, your partner is definitely more cautious with his or her heart than you are, but your lover has a reserve of strength that is mighty indeed. You might see your partner as somewhat of a challenge, but you find challenges in love exciting. Some clashes are inevitable, but with understanding and love, this relationship can work.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: In most cases, this combination inspires mutual respect and appreciation. Both of you are generally positive in matters of the heart, so optimism is likely the result when you are together. Your partner is somewhat unpredictable when it comes to expressions of love, and you are more likely to appreciate the "quirkiness" than most Venusian signs, simply because you enjoy challenges and the feeling that a relationship is "alive". Furthermore, your lover's unconventionality can be quite attractive to you. While others might complain that Venus in Aquarius can be a little too aloof, you are more apt to see that trait as a challenge—and rise to it! The only difficulty with all of this is that your desires in love are quite variable, and when they're turned on, you want love and you want it right now. If your partner happens to be off on a tangent, seemingly in another world, you can quickly become impatient. However, both of you will give the other enough space to breathe, probably because you need some independence too. With your Venusian signs in a sextile with one another, you are likely to appreciate and respect each other, off-moods aside.

How Venus in Aries Relates to a Partner with Venus in Pisces: The attraction can be intense at first, but your inherent differences in matters of the heart might get the better of your relationship in the long run. With understanding and patience, however, this partnership can be very rewarding. You are more than likely the one to take the lead in this relationship. Your partner can be somewhat shy and unsure with someone new, but very charming indeed. He or she has a dreamy quality that can be very enticing. But this very quality that hooks your interest in your partner in the first place, might get you impatient once the novelty fades away! Your partner's elusiveness and downright evasiveness stands in stark contrast to your style of expressing love—so much so that it could seem completely alien to you. You are direct and forthright with your partners, and usually appreciate the same in others. Your partner doesn't always seem very clear, and this confuses you. If the love is there, all that is needed is the understanding that you and your partner express love in distinctly different ways. As well, you should know that your lover enjoys understatement in romance. Your bluntness may be appreciated by less sensitive souls, but this one can find it difficult to understand. Your partner, in turn, should learn to appreciate knowing exactly where he or she stands with you! You have much to offer each other once you get past the matter of differing love "styles".

Venus in Aries Woman: You need constant excitement and new outlets for your enthusiasms, of which you’ve plenty to spare. Whatever is new or avant-garde turns you on. This applies to people as well as things. You like bright colors, lots of sound, great energy, and whatever’s conceptually on the cutting edge. That’s why you value people with active minds and active lives, dynamic people who challenge you. Their competitive edge is exciting. You tussle about who’s first, and you want to win. You like exclusivity and what’s unique. You want to be at the source of energy.

When you fall in love, you go off like a rocket - lots of fire and passion simultaneously. If you care, it shows. You give totally and trustingly. You don’t play coy games. You're the original wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve gal. And why not? How can you find your heart if you don’t lose it first? You're not a wimp in love, You take risks. And you want someone who will push back yet treat you well. Fighting doesn’t faze you. A good fight gets your juices going and clears the air like a whiff of smelling salts clears the head. It not only keeps boredom at bay, it lets you start fresh.

A dynamic man is exciting. If he introduces you to new things, so much the better. He should be ambitious and sympathetic to your goals and ambitions, demonstrative in his affections, and have a sense of humor. He will have to be strong enough to stand up to you and smart enough to put you first, for you have to be the first and only woman in his life. When you fall for him, he’s Prince Charming to you. At least in the beginning.

Sure. You're disappointed when Prince Charming’s charm fades and the guy You thought was so dynamic turns out to be a ho-hum experience. That first flush of infatuation often blinds you completely, and you have to come back to everyday realities. When you get bored you pick a fight. Either you start over or you move on. But, if your love remains a constant adventure, you both win. And you stay put.

Venus in Aries Woman: Women with this planetary placement may reject traditional feminine images and put little value on such things as home, a husband and family. Independent, outspoken and assertive, you refuse to let any man dominate you, and insist on being free to do as you wish in matters of love. You probably aren't 'feminine' in a traditional sense, for what makes you feel good about yourself as a woman is being able to do things like a man. You want to show everyone (including yourself) that anything a man can do a woman can do better. Thus, you might express this image of yourself through athletics, by being highly competitive in the business world, or by playing the role of 'buddy' to the men in your life. As a child, you probably were a tomboy who beat up your brothers and could out-hit anyone on the local Little League team.

Venus in Aries Man: Action is what you like, whether it's in a relationship or watching sports or films. You want the newest, the latest, the most avant-garde, the farthest out. You thrive on new experiences. The here and now is where you live, a lot more than most people. Surprise you ! Give you something you haven't experienced before. And if it is totally exclusive, a one-of-a-kind thing, so much the better. You fill your life with energetic things, from loud music to loud colors. Weapons of all kinds attract you, whether you use them or not. Their firepower represents the ultimate action. You are also into head-tripping, getting off on what's completely conceptual. So long as it's new. And different.

When you fall in love, you are romantic and impulsive. You fancy yourself a dragon-slayer, and you would like to be able to go on a quest for your ladylove. To say you are idealistic in love is an understatement. You put your woman up on a pedestal, even if you know that eventually she will fall off, being only human. You are a bit macho. You want to take care of her. You want your love to be tested, like knights of old. You can make any woman feel like she's the only woman in the world, and she is to you. You're a very enthusiastic lover and you hate being bored, so you take her out. You go places together and have adventures.

You know exactly what attracts you in a woman. She has to be vibrant and alive, exciting and a challenge. if she likes to fight, that's OK too, because you enjoy a good fight. It's stimulating and gets the juices flowing. If she gives you a hard time, it's all in the game and you love the competition because in the end you don't see how she could resist you. You're an active lover and you like the banter and playfulness of it all, including a bit of wrestling. Whatever keeps the relationship on a high edge keeps you interested, even if it's battling. You find conflict stimulating, and making up is half the fun! You keep each other interested, because you never know what to expect.

Venus in Aries Man: Men with Venus in Aries tend to be out-of-touch with their female sides (unless their Moons are in Cancer, Pisces or Taurus) and have little respect for female values or even for women in general. Your ideal woman is one who is 'one of the guys', who likes to play football with you and your friends on a Saturday afternoon and can drink the lot of you under the table afterwards. Emotional, gentle, delicate or sensitive women don't interest you in the least. You want a partner who is strong, feisty and independent, even a little 'butch'. Thus, you might find women with mesomorphic bodies, athletes and body builders more attractive than those with 'hourglass' figures.
