Venus in Sagittarius

You might obsessively value the personal freedom you gain from the power of your philosophical perspectives in relationships. This may lead to withholding your special ability for providing inspiration to other people. When you indulge in the fear of being limited by relating to others in deep, personal levels, you may become the person who's always 'out of town' - never really there for anybody, including yourself.

If you allow tension and fear of commitment to block you from any relationship, you might experience a haunting sense of rootlessness. This results in a curiously empty feeling when you are thrust into unexpected situations. If you are content with fickle infatuations and careless involvements, you may eventually sink into low self-esteem.

Your sense of values can be eroded if you neglect to establish worthwhile goals in partnerships.

You have a special gift for being able to teach others true freedom in relationships. You can do this by allowing the dynamics of the relationship to guide it to its own goals. Imparting your trust and optimism to others allows you to share with them a larger perspective of the situation. Thus, you can experience a constant expansion and excitement in your alliances.

This process of conveying trust can enable you to focus on a few deeper yet more rewarding partnerships. When you are in touch with the psychological processes of other people, you can experience a continual sense of self-worth by inspiring and encouraging them to lofty goals that free them from the limitation of old beliefs.

Venus in Sagittarius: Venus in Sagittarius is often a larger-than-life character. Outgoing and fun-loving, these people like to be where it's at - watching the latest film, eating at the trendiest restaurant, or dancing at the newest disco. If there is something new and exciting going on, Venus in Sagittarius wants to be there. These people like to be with people, entertaining them and making them laugh; and many of them are to be found on the stage, doing this for a living. Like those with Venus in Leo, these people love to dramatize and exaggerate their feelings, which means that their relationships often move from one big drama to the next.

The pleasure principle is more important to the Venus in Sagittarius person than cozy domesticity. These people want relationships to be fun and free, and may well run away if things become too heavy and serious - or they may just hide their heads in the sand and pretend it isn't happening! Finding it easy to fall in love, but hard to commit themselves, they tend to be afraid of deep involvement. Their impulsive nature will often cause them to jump in at the deep end only to get cold feet and swiftly extricate themselves.

Hopelessly optimistic, they expect an enormous amount from relationships, which can make them very hard to please and subject to frequent bitter disappointments. Filled with romantic longings, they tend to move restlessly from one person to another in search of the ideal partner. The Sagittarian tendency to live in the future makes it hard for these people to accept the here and now. They are always waiting for the perfect love to appear.

For a relationship to work for people with Venus in Sagittarius, they need someone who shares their interests, enthusiasms and visions of the future. Their partner must also understand their need for space and freedom. In a relationship which meets these needs, the Venus in Sagittarius person is a delightfully enthusiastic and generous lover who can make every day seem like a holiday and fill his or her partner's life with warmth and fun.

Venus in Sagittarius: If you have artistic ability, you probably express it in a way that shows your sense of fantasy and humor. Though you may be as serious as anyone about your art and self-expression, you seem to have more fun with it. Whether you're writing an adventure story or designing a skyscraper, you don't hesitate to depart a bit from stark reality, to exaggerate and include a touch of whimsicality. You have a vivid imagination, and a special talent for keeping your audience entertained. You enjoy art that is bigger than life and not so harsh; in your opinion, art should take us beyond the mundane and broaden our perspective by introducing us to all sorts of possibilities.

In relationships, you are equally expansive and curious. Friendly, outgoing, adventurous and optimistic, you love to socialize and often are the life of the party. Your list of friends, acquaintances and lovers is extensive, and includes people of all kinds. You see no reason to limit yourself to only one partner and miss out on other possibilities. Your motto might be 'you only go around once, so why not try everything while you've got the chance?' Consequently, you'll have problems if your lover isn't as free and easy as you are and insists on fidelity and permanence. You mean well and don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, so you tend to promise what you can't deliver. If you get caught in an awkward amorous situation, your first line of defense is to lie with a smile. You can be terribly fickle, flirtatious, superficial and self-indulgent in matters of love. To you, it's all good fun. If your Sun is in Capricorn or Scorpio, you'll tend to be more serious and willing to make commitments, though you might subscribe to the old double standard: it's okay for you to run around, but your partner had better not try it.

You tend to idealize the concept of love, so much so that it is impossible for you to find a flesh-and-blood mate to fulfill your romantic fantasies. You are looking for a fairy princess or knight in shining armor, and may prefer chasing your dream to settling into a real-life, day-to-day partnership.

Generous with your time and money, you enjoy showering your friends and lovers with gifts. You like to go out on the town with your partner and do things in grand style. Cuddling up with your lover in front of the fireplace isn't exactly your idea of a good time; you'd rather play a few games of tennis, have a sumptuous dinner, go to the theatre, and then dance the rest of the night away. Anyone who's involved with you had better have plenty of energy.

You want your partners to expand your horizons, and to expose you to new ideas and experiences. Perhaps you choose lovers who will play the role of teacher for you; or you might enjoy teaching them what you know. Another possibility is that you could be attracted to people from other countries or cultures. For you, relationships are growth-producing opportunities, and you learn something from everyone you meet.

Venus in Sagittarius: Venus in the sign Sagittarius indicates people whose emotions and responses are idealistic and spiritually oriented. They are friendly, vivacious, sociable, and outgoing. Dane Rudhyar, one of the greatest psychological astrologers, pointed out in The Pulse Of Life that each sign of the Zodiac is a reaction against the extremes of the sign that precedes it. This observation is especially true of Venus in Sagittarius, which is frankly outspoken about inner feelings, in contrast to Venus in the preceding sign of Scorpio, which is secretive and calculating. The soul-racking emotional intensity, the jealousy and possessiveness of Venus in Scorpio leaves a bitter taste in the evolutionary experience of the soul that has Venus in Sagittarius. Consequently, people with this position seek to base emotional conduct in personal relationships on more objective, socially accepted principles founded on ethics, philosophy, and religion. Traditional moral structures make them feel more secure in their emotional conduct. They seek to be honest and open in their feelings and reactions to those they love or those with whom they are romantically involved.

People with this Venus placement will often try to convert their sweethearts or spouses to their own religious beliefs or moral principles in order to have a commonly agreed-upon basis of conduct. They generally seek to marry within their own religious or philosophic milieu, but are not afraid of getting involved in unusual romantic relationships.

With the Jupiter rulership of Sagittarius, their taste in art and décor tends to be lavish; and they like flamboyant displays of color and form. If they can afford it, their homes and aesthetic surroundings will display a royal, palatial atmosphere. They are attracted to classical forms of beauty such as Greek architecture and symphonic music. They are fond of art forms that have a religious or philosophic motif; and religious music can deeply affect them. Religious ceremony and pageantry appeal to them.

This sign position gains emotional satisfaction through outdoor games and sports; those who engage in horseback riding or skiing are typical examples, and dates which include these activities will appeal to them. This sign position gives a love of travel to distant places. Natives often seek to marry foreigners or people of foreign extraction or other races; or those with a philosophical bent, with advanced education, or with connections to institutions of higher learning.

Venus in Sagittarius: If Venus is afflicted in Sagittarius, there can be bluntness that offends the feelings of others, impractical idealism in romance, and a tendency to impose religious and moral standards dogmatically on loved ones.

Venus in Sagittarius: Demonstrative and friendly in affection. A breezy attitude toward love. Not always dependable where affections are concerned. Good intuition. Two different types are shown when there are planets in Sagittarius. The gambler type loves fun and a good time; extravagant, easy-going, and always ready to be on the move. The other type is philosophical, religious, with great inner strength, and idealistic in nature. To know which type, study the aspects to Venus, and if Venus is afflicted to Jupiter it will be the first type. Good aspects and a strong Saturn will indicate the second type. Venus in Sagittarius is well placed for it is a combination of Jupiter and Venus, and both are benefics. Here we have Venus in Jupiter's home.

Venus in Sagittarius: Although considerable enthusiasm and lively emotions will be warmly expressed towards partners, the Sagittarian need for independence may make the individual loath to be too tied to one person. The duality present in this sign will be evident, and more than one relationship may be experienced at any given time. Certainly, love will be enjoyed; and the subject will make life rewarding and exhilarating for the partner, both in bed and out. In turn, the partner needs to respond well, not only sexually but also intellectually. Eventually, a philosophical, idealistic element will develop and have its effect on the partner, doing a great deal to instill a more meaningful expression. However, intellectual rapport and friendship, as well as the willingness to enjoy sex, are essential. This is a lively friend who will make life fun. The attitude toward finance may be 'Easy come, easy go', perhaps with the emphasis on 'go'!

Venus in Sagittarius: You react to emotional stimuli eagerly. Your heart is unafraid of love; you dare to feel, and to follow your instincts to the last outpost of experience. You are not an experimenter in love; you don't trifle with your emotions; but others may, because your eagerness may be mistaken for lightness. You see no reason why emotions aren't made to be followed, and are among the most impulsive of the children of Venus. Because of your sincerity, you can get into trouble, until you learn that all the world isn't as direct and earnest as you are. But though you may give yourself to unworthy takers and be hurt (for you are very sensitive), you will never lose your high standards nor your emotional courage, and you will go on from disappointments undefeated to trust your emotions again, matured but unafraid.

Venus in Sagittarius: In Sagittarius, Venus is indicative of one who is likely to become involved in numerous affairs of the heart but is generous and really intends to be loyal. The native tends to love things which are not easily obtainable. Thus, he is in danger of attaching himself to persons who care so little that the native is exploited, even humiliated. The astrologer must help him overcome what might be an inner desire to be punished.

The key here is perspective. The native must see things as they exist in relation to his own life. Once he recognizes the reason for his actions, he gains inner illumination. He tends to follow his emotions blindly; this leads to bumps, bruises and emotional involvements which create depression.

Venus in Sagittarius: You are an adventurous, though potentially wanton, lover. Love for you is something that should be exciting and rapturous, yet at the same time having meaning and even some deeply moral and religious quality about it. Basically you want to satisfy equally both your body and your soul or mind; and you will pursue such an objective enthusiastically and uninhibitedly. Troubles arise when the lusts or needs of your body leave the idealism of your mind behind, or vice versa, either being merely fancy.

You attract with a demonstrative, honest and open manner; with a light-hearted, party mood that immediately gives Other a sense of fun being in the offing; and with a sense that you have definite and intelligent ethical standards.

You repel with an immodesty and seductiveness that eventually becomes counter¬productive; with loose morals - and impersonal affection to match; and with hypocritical efforts to get Other to behave in the upright manner that you feel you yourself ought to, but fail to.

You are attracted to Others who are emotionally sophisticated and / or mentally informer; to Others who have an enterprising and expansive approach to life, or have exotic connections, or are of foreign origin; and to Others who have a playful streak but have principles as well.

You are repelled by small-minded, dull or dishonest Others who lack experience or a sense of adventure; by provincialism or parochialism; and by Others who are too reserved, inhibited or sanctimonious.

When you are alone, it is for one of two reasons, or possibly both. The first is that you give or promise a lot but overlook the details, and so eventually you are disappointed, or Other is. This implies that you get carried away with your own enthusiastic idea of love and Other, and so fail to see - possibly because you do not want to - the small or unsensational aide to Other's character and life. This in turn suggests that you do not acknowledge the same in yourself because you somehow believe it to be unlovable. The second reason why you could find yourself alone in an unwelcome way is that your and Other's beliefs or moral values do not agree. You have an interesting mixture of both wild and ethical behavior which is quite hard to understand or accept - unless you yourself do. Until then, you are unlikely to attract an Other whose values harmonize with yours.

Venus in Sagittarius: You have a natural and healthy appetite for sex; but sex for its own sake is not likely to be enough. You are more interested in the feelings and principles behind it than in the act itself; and sex without personal involvement is surely less than satisfying.

You are not strongly motivated to learn complex or unusual sexual techniques, except perhaps to pleas a lover who has a special taste for them. For you, sexual pyrotechnics tend to get in the way of necessary love communication, distracting you from the warmth and friendship that truly fulfilling sexuality means to you.

Your kind of experimentation is in the lover you choose rather than in the way you go about lovemaking. You are uninterested in one whose personality is modest or commonplace, preferring a more adventurous and unusual type. You feel that such a lover will greatly enhance your own experience and that the relationship will be a continuing exploration of new territory.

For this reason, your lovers are in general more outgoing and volatile but less cautious than you.

Therefore, you have to play the role of stabilizer from time to time. In that way, you can enjoy the adventures you get yourself into, and at the same time keep them from getting out of hand.

You try to be very fair and just with all of your friends, because you want everything about your relationships to be on a high moral plane. You are as fair as possible with everyone you like, and very upset when someone is unfair to a friend of yours. Yet you are tolerant of other people's weaknesses. You prefer to base your opinion of someone on his or her overall personality, ignoring little faults. However, if a friend breaks an important rule, you may end the friendship on the spot.

You are usually very friendly and quite outgoing. You don't hide your feelings for others, for you are open about your emotions. People will probably like this in you; and you should have many friends. However, you do not like possessive people or those who use friendship to tie you down. You want to be free to be friendly with anyone without your friends saying 'no'. Later in life, you may have difficulty settling down to a single relationship with someone of the opposite sex.

You are fond of nature and the outdoors, and may study a subject such as botany, geology or bird life just for pleasure. You like natural themes in art, and art and music that is large and impressive.

Venus in Sagittarius: Though Sagittarius is a Fire sign, I find it doesn't have the same sort of passion as Aries and Leo, and therefore you don't have as strong a need for sex. rather, what you need is spontaneity, because your needs tend to change according to your circumstances. You also need a mate / lover who feels the chase is as important as - or even more important than - the catch; you seem to need that game-playing, courtship stage more than most. For this reason, anyone who tries to turn things toward a serious commitment too soon is liable to wind up hearing 'Good-bye' instead of 'I do'. You're as anxious for a stable relationship as the next one, but you want to be the one to stabilize it; and pressure to commit yourself only threatens your freedom and drives you away. Finally, you need a mate / lover who respects - and preferably shares - your philosophy of life.

Venus in Sagittarius: You are confident and positive in love. You associate love and relationships with adventure, learning, and growth. For the most part, you are easygoing in matters of the heart, although you are passionate and do enjoy it when things are going your way! You want to grow through your relationships, and don't appreciate humdrum, stagnant partnerships in which you might feel caged in.

You love variety, and can be given to exaggeration—not because you are intentionally trying to mislead others, but because you have such an expansive vision in matters of the heart. Sometimes, as a result, you may promise more than you can give. You value spontaneity, and prefer to "wing it" when it comes to love. Planning ahead takes all the spice out of your life. You attract others with a free and easy attitude, and quickly become chummy with potential partners.

You love to make people laugh, and your goofiness is generally considered attractive. A partnership that is too serious would drag you down. You are a dreamer, and have many visions. Sometimes you let others down, not because you are ill-spirited. In fact, you have a big heart. Instead, it is because your dreams can sometimes be too big, and follow-through is not your forte. In your enthusiasm with a new love interest, you can promise more than you can deliver, and when the fire burns out, it may be all too easy for you to move on.

You are a generous partner, but you are not easily "tied down". You can be easy to companion but not to partner, so to speak. You require space in any kind of partnership, and need a sense of freedom in order to feel comfortable.

Venus in Sagittarius, Sun in Libra: If the Sun sign is Libra, the subject may not seem to care about love, but he or she needs just as much romance as others. This placing helps to rationalize the feelings, however; and the need for intellectual rapport and good friendship, as well as pure romance, is very healthy. This combination is excellent for friendship, easing any Libran tendency to take too much from other people. Professional financial help is advisable.

Venus in Sagittarius, Sun in Scorpio: If the Sun sign is Scorpio, this Venus influence lightens the steamy, rather heavy Scorpio attitude to love and sex, adding a need for intellectual rapport. Much will be expected of partners, but much will be contributed. Scorpio jealousy can clash with the Sagittarian independence; and a resolution of this conflict is importance. Here is a friend who needs to share interests and challenges. Investments will be enjoyed, but a gambling spirit should be controlled.

Venus in Sagittarius, Sun in Sagittarius: If the Sun sign is Sagittarius, much attention is given to the emotional chase. Fickleness must be countered. All the attributes of Venus in Sagittarius generally (above) will be present. If Neptune is also in Sagittarius, there will be idealism and romantic reverie. Money can easily slip through the subject's fingers.

Venus in Sagittarius, Sun in Capricorn: If the Sun sign is Capricorn, then although the loyalty and faithfulness of Capricorn is less evident, this is a good placing for those with rather serious Capricorn qualities, helping them to enjoy life and warming their cool emotions. There will be less social climbing in the love life, but a good mind will be deemed important, and the partner will spur on the Capricorn ambitions and aspirations. Friends must share demanding interests. Moneymaking is less important than for other Capricorn groups.

Venus in Sagittarius, Sun in Aquarius: If the Sun sign is Aquarius, then the Aquarian spirit will be sympathetic to the independence of Venus in Sagittarius, while the fire of that sign will warm the distant but dynamic attraction of Aquarius. Nevertheless, the liking for individuality will not encourage even the most romantic Aquarian to rush into a long-term commitment. Sexual experiment is usual. There is a wide circle of friends, who often share philanthropic or intellectual interests. Money will be spent erratically, often on silly, trendy things.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aries: 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 Aries 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. You may be more intellectual than your partner, enjoying sharing your philosophies with him or her perhaps more than your partner 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. You feel comfortable with one another right from the start, and the enthusiasm generated between the two of you is admirable. Both of you are competitive, and enjoy friendly sparring. You admire each other's direct approach in love, and are sure to keep active together. Neither of you is content with a relationship that is too settled or comfortable.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: The connection between the two of you may seem a bit odd, due to vastly different styles and needs in love, but understanding and compromise can make it work. You enjoy having fun in love, and you are capable of infusing your relationship with heaps of excitement. Excitement in a partnership is not as important to your partner, however. In fact, in his or her book, stability and predictability are attractive qualities of any partnership. You are a risk-taker in love (and finances!), while your partner tends to "play it safe". Your partner digs in his or her heels and gets comfortable, while you have your sights on bigger things. Your tendency to believe that the grass is always greener somewhere else is something that can easily frustrate your lover, as his or her needs are quite simple and contentment is the goal. Your lover's possessiveness can create serious problems in this partnership. You are a much happier and giving person when you feel free. Your lover must learn to enjoy your spirited attitude toward love and partnership. At the same time, it would be wise for you to learn to understand your partner's desire for security. Giving your partner the freedom to be himself or herself, and vice versa, will be the key to the success of this relationship.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Gemini: Your Venus signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac, but you share some similarities. Both of you are lovers of freedom in your relationships, and neither of you will turn down the chance for a stimulating conversation. Although there isn't always a "meeting of minds" between you two, there definitely will be some passionate discussions. Both you and your partner are somewhat restless, neither lasting long in a relationship that is confining or stuffy. You tend to be more passionate than your partner in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting your lover to adopt the same belief systems, but you share a common love of fun and humor in love. Unless there are strong supporting aspects in synastry, the relationship may be broken impulsively. Both of you benefit from a partner who grounds you and reminds you of the long term. You may not find these qualities in each other. You value honesty from a lover, while your partner values mental exchanges, period. Restlessness in partnership is something you both share, and it's best that you try to channel that energy into shared activities, such as traveling, instead of finding holes in your relationship. Remembering that opposites often do attract, this relationship is certainly workable if neither of you clings to your ways self-righteously. Learning from each other, and trying to strike a balance, will pay off. Together, you can easily become inspired.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: This is a confusing combination, although it has the potential to be very stimulating if you are willing to accept each other for who you are, and learn from one another! While your partner is at his or her best in a relationship that feels safe and secure, you are unhappy when a relationship becomes too predictable or confining. Your lover shows his or her love through attention and caring, and this wonderful quality can sometimes feel lost on you, as you are a more free-wheeling partner. Relationships that support growth in all directions are what gets you high and happy. You need to feel like you are headed somewhere, and that the journey will be a fulfilling one both physically and mentally. Facing up to intense emotional issues or problems in the relationship is not your best quality, but it is certainly your partner's department! Intimacy, for your lover, is intoxicating. Rejection is your partner's worst fear! If the love is there, you are certainly capable of committing, but your style may rub your lover the wrong way until he or she understands that it is just that—a style. Freedom and energy are important "ingredients" in a satisfying relationship in your eyes, and no amount of coercing or theatrics will change those needs. However, if your partner learns to put some faith (one of Sagittarius' favorite words!) in you, and give you some freedom of movement, your lover won't feel the need for tactics in order to keep you with him or her. If this relationship is allowed the time and space to grow, you can have some great fun with each other, and you can certainly benefit from your partner's more tender, emotional touch.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Leo: You and your partner share a fiery approach to love. Both of you fall in love intuitively, without much ado. You share a common love of action and joie de vivre. Any relationship between you is sure to start quickly and passionately. Off to a good start, for certain, but there can be a few snags along the way. Your partner is naturally more loyal than you are, as you can be a tad restless, and loyalty from a partner is very important to your lover. Restlessness can intimidate him or her, and leave your partner feeling insecure. Your far-sightedness means that you aren't always focused on what is right under your nose—namely, your partner! And, focus on him or her, and on your relationship, is essential to your lover's basic happiness in love. You most certainly will share some fantastic times together as you fuel each other's spirits, inspiring each other to reach new heights in love. What your lover needs to understand is that you dislike the feeling of being fenced in. If you feel free, you are more likely to stay true. If you are stifled (which can very well happen with your partner!), your relationship will quickly become volatile. However, this relationship is an especially passionate one that neither of you could forget easily.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: This combination is one of the more difficult ones. There can be considerable attraction at the beginning, but some major disconnects in terms of values and relationship styles are likely over time—nothing insurmountable, of course! The common ground you share is a desire to learn through your relationship and a willingness to talk things over. You value your partner's keen insight and you can have some wonderful conversations. You, especially, get off on the sharing of ideas, and you thoroughly enjoy philosophizing. Your partner is certainly the more practical person in this pairing, and you may find your Venus in Virgo lover a bit of a stick in the mud at times. Your lover may complain of your blind faith in the relationship, preferring that you live in the "here and now". Your lover values effort put into the relationship, and he or she can't help but see all of the "little things" that make up its whole. You, on the other hand, prefer to think of your partnership in grander, larger terms. This can be very annoying for your lover! You will likely disagree on how to spend money as well. You are not a save-for-a-rainy-day type of person by any stretch of the imagination (unless Saturn is aspecting your Venus)! You need space and at least the illusion of freedom. You are very threatened by any attempts to be confined. Needless to say, you will be much happier if there is a strong feeling of growth in your relationship. Making plans and defining goals may help, but attempts by your partner to control or cage you in will have unfavorable results. You have much to offer your lover, and can most certainly, more than most, brighten up his or her outlook.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Libra: Your Venus signs are considered compatible, and this is certainly a relationship in which both partners appreciate each other. We are combining Air and Fire with this pairing, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. Your partner may find you somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because you are freedom-loving. Although your partner is not one to try to confine a lover, some adjustment in his or her thinking may be needed. You are adventurous in love, and not as tactful as your lover can be. At times, you may run roughshod over his or her feelings, but your partner is fully capable of understanding that you are simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your lover's indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to you, as you are a "do it now" person. However, you can have a lot of fun with each other, and laughter is truly a gift in any relationship. Good conversations are probable when you are together, and shared interests will do much to strengthen the bond between you. As well, your partner is the master of being reasonable, which you will appreciate more than most. Your partner will love your joie de vivre, and you two can have some great times together.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio: This is a case of two side-by-side signs, with two very different ways of expressing love, trying to relate. The result can be awkward and a little messy, but can certainly work with awareness and understanding. Your partner approaches love relationships with intensity. You are intense in a different way. You are a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your lover's passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to you, and you do not always come across as constant with affections. This seeming inconstancy can be frustrating to your partner. He or she can be somewhat possessive in love, but you choke when you feel caged in. Your partner may complain that you can be somewhat flighty and inconstant, and you may be bewildered by your lover's greater than average need for intimacy. Still, your lover will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that you breathe into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! You will consider your partner to be highly astute and will appreciate his or her depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner who also has Venus in Sagittarius: You have similar styles and needs in love. Both of you want to grow in your relationships. You also love to laugh and learn with, and through, your partners. Each of you attracts other through your sense of humor and positive outlook, so chances are that if you have come together in relationship, you appreciate one another's good humor and faith. You will sense a camaraderie that goes deep. Because each of you needs to feel rather free in any partnership, you will face that side of yourself in your partner! Chances are, you will keep active together and have some out-of-this-world discussions—something that energizes you both. Because of your similarities in this part of your personalities (love nature), your compatibility will depend very much on how comfortable each of you is with yourselves. For the most part, you encourage each other, although sometimes you might overdo things, and neglect some of the more practical aspects of your partnership. However, you really know how to have fun with each other, which is an enviable quality in any partnership!

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: Your love natures and needs are quite different, which can set you up for both challenges and growth opportunities. You throw yourself whole-heartedly into the love of the moment, without much interest in long-term relationship planning. Your lover, on the contrary, is considerably more cautious about starting a relationship, but once he or she makes a commitment, it is a lasting and serious one. The potential clash here is the direction of the partnership. Your partner wants to garner some sort of security from your plans for your relationship, while you prefer to "wing it". You attract others with your friendly, optimistic personality, and your partner exudes a certain quiet, cautious charm when it comes to love. Chances are that you are the more outgoing of the two—not necessarily in a general personality sense, but in terms of the kindling of your romantic relationship. Your spiritedness was likely a big turn-on for your partner, at least at the outset. As things move forward, however, your lover may pick at that very optimism, perhaps due to his or her own fears of being insecure in partnership. You might complain that your partner takes things too seriously, and wish for more "oomph" and adventurousness. Nevertheless, with understanding, you have much to offer each other. You can loosen up your partner, offering a freshness and encouragement that is hard to find, while your partner can help you to see the value of planning ahead.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: Both of you value freedom, growth, and independence in love relationships. As a result, you are unlikely to be a joined-at-the-hip type of couple. Each of you appreciates the need for individuality, and neither of you believes that a partnership should act to stifle this basic need. Your approach to love, however, may be a little more impulsive and emotional than your somewhat more calm partner. When you get excited about something, forging ahead with gusto, your partner's collected demeanor may feel a bit like rain on your parade. Remember that you tend to be more expressive than your partner, and your reactions to most things are immediate and emotionally-charged. Your partner is more apt to analyze a situation before letting himself or herself feel the energy of the moment. If you can get beyond this minor incompatibility, and treat it as an opportunity to grow, your partnership has much potential to work well. Both of you are moving forward, disinclined to stifle one another or fall into the ruts that many couples do, and this basic compatibility will most likely lay the ground for a solid yet exciting relationship foundation.

How Venus in Sagittarius Relates to a Partner with Venus in Pisces: Both of you are inclined to look for the best in your partner, and this idealism can strengthen your bond. Your styles in love, however, can be radically different at times. While you are generally very direct about your needs in love, your partner doesn't always know what his or her needs are! Your partner is compassionate and intuitive, and needs to "feel right" about issues in and surrounding love. Your emotions in love move much more quickly, and you may at times be impatient with your partner as a result. Your partner's feelings in love are easily hurt, and you can have an attitude that truth and directness is the only way to go, and as a result, you want your partner to toughen up. Both of you can be somewhat restless in love. This can express itself as a certain divine discontent on one end of the spectrum, or outright dissatisfaction on the other. Try to focus on the here and now with each other, and avoid the tendency to look beyond the partnership to fill up the holes in your relationship. Even better, accept that you cannot possibly fulfill each other's every need, but at the same time, appreciate what each of you has to offer each other—and that is a lot!

Venus in Sagittarius Woman: Whether you talk about it or not, you're a very spiritual person. No matter what you do for a living, your real quest is to find a philosophy or a religion that you can really believe in and take to your heart. But it has to be one you’ve worked out for yourself, not something that has been crammed down your throat by others. You want your freedom of thought as well as freedom of choice and movement. You like good times and roving, whether it’s getting on an airplane for faraway places or just reading about them or studying a foreign language and culture. Anything that will add meaning and growth to your life attracts you. That goes for people as well. You like to meet foreigners and talk to them about their cultures, learn how they do things differently from what you're used to. And you're not at all judgmental. You just want to learn.

You like a fairly high style of living, and you're a spirited woman with good taste. Sometimes you go for the simple and woodsy sort of thing, like camping out, but you can dress to the nines and hit the hotspots as well. It’s all an adventure, and you love adventure. You especially like what can teach you something new, even exotic experiences that might put others off - so long as it’s fun and open and aboveboard. You hate subterfuge and intrigue and subtlety. You need your space and you give others theirs without question. Nobody ever has to ask you to move over. Some say you're too generous, “to a fault,” but you like giving presents and seeing people react joyfully to a thoughtful gesture.

The man you want has high ideals and high standards. He has a spirit of adventure and takes risks in his life. He’s not afraid of the word god, whatever that means to him or to you. You don’t have to believe the same things, but he’s got to be on a spiritual quest of his own or it’s no go. Combined with that, he’s got to be able and willing to laugh and have fun with you. You can be serious minded, but you want us to have a good time being together, and that includes silly games, laughter, and having fun sexually. Monogamy really isn’t your style, but you're always ethical in your romantic encounters. You never deceive or tease.

Venus in Sagittarius Woman: Women with Venus in Sagittarius pride themselves on their sense of humor, gregariousness and cheerful dispositions.

Venus in Sagittarius Man: Freedom is high on your priority list. You have a high spiritual nature and you're always seeking the ideal, not the real. You want all the good things in life - adventures, good times, travel, fun, spontaneity, romance. And you want those things to be vehicles for your personal growth. You don't always talk about being spiritual, because not everyone understands, but it's an important part of you. You're sociable, and generally outgoing. You like to be friendly with everyone. But you're not superficial or lightheaded. You're a thinker, and your thoughts run deep. You travel to far off places to stimulate your mind. You love to get to know foreigners, especially women.

Your tastes run to the lavish, when you can afford it. You like lots of color and things that show your eclectic taste. You take a bit from one culture, a bit from another, and bits from lots of others and combine them in an individualistic way that's tasteful and interesting.

You're not afraid of getting involved in a relationship with someone different from yourself, with a foreign background, or of some other religious persuasion. Others' philosophies and theologies interest you, and you like to experience these through the people who live them in their own milieus. You're always as open and honest about your own feelings as you can be. You don't hide or try to deceive. You're ethical in whatever you do, whether business dealings or romantic relationships.

Your ideal woman has her head in the stars but her feet on the ground. She is outdoorsy, maybe likes horses or just backpacking. She loves to travel with you. You have fun together while doing your spiritual seeking. You want to share your adventures with her and give her joy. Most of all, you want the two of you to laugh together, for that's the mark of true love. You know how to give each other the space you need. And, oh yes! Even if she's not a beauty, she is smart and well-educated. She takes you visit her stars, and you take her to yours.

Venus in Sagittarius Man: Men with this planetary position are most attracted to active, vivacious, friendly and fun-loving women. No intense, possessive or highly emotional types need apply. You want a partner who's more of a buddy than a lover; someone with whom you can do things and share ideas and experiences. You admire knowledge and worldliness, and are fascinated by women who have done things and who know things that you don't. Tall, slim, athletic women with long legs probably appeal to you most.
