Synastry & Relationship Astrology Synastry is the art of relationship Astrology. It is a fascinating and illuminating study of how individuals interact with one another. Each individual is born with a personal birth chart, which is a map of the heavens for the moment they took their first breath. Some might say the birth chart has the effect of stamping, or imprinting, the energies of the planets and signs on an individual. Each and every one of us has all 10 planets and luminaries in our charts, but their positions by sign, house, and aspect are individual to each. When we interact with others, the individual energies of our natal charts form special relationships with their individual energies. The resulting interplay is as complex and unique as our own personalities. Many of us are familiar with the study of Sun Sign Compatibility. Some will ask, for example, "Does a Leo get along with a ?" While these comparisons have some value, they are very general. Many other factors are involved evaluating the compatibility of two people. Although Synastry is complex, we can turn to some especially useful methods of studying relationships that will help shed light on our interactions. Below are some valuable pointers.


Synastry aspects In Synastry, conjunctions between partners' planets and points represent a point of powerful interaction. Depending on the planets involved, there can be a strong feeling of similarity and recognition. The opposition represents polarity and the power of attraction. This can result in a feeling of complementing each other, but it can also bring out feelings of competition and insecurity. There can be a tendency to "seesaw" or "pingpong" with the oppositionwhen one person expresses their planet's energy, the other person counters with their side of the "equation". There is a countering effect here, and often a feeling of literally being "opposed" or thwarted. Sextiles and trines [generally considered "flowing" aspects] often suggest an ease at blending the two planets' or points' energies. There is often a warm and pleasant understanding and flow. These aspects do not necessarily generate attraction [as a conjunction might], but they are very supportive in a relationship. Trines generally indicate energies that combine well, while sextiles are usually points of compatibility that the couple notice and appreciate. Squares often point to energies that need work in order to integrate them easily into the interaction. While lack of understanding and frustration can be the result, they can also create just the right amount of tension to produce excitement in a relationship. Growthoriented individuals will find that these "discordant" energies can spur them to new heights of understanding. While it is helpful to consider any one interchart aspect carefully, it is also illuminating to consider the signs involved in the interaction. For example, squares between planets occupying mutable signs [Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces] can point to problems that are expressed in fussiness, restlessness, nagging, and pickiness. Frequent annoyances and irritations, often that skirt the real conflict, are common. Between cadent signs [Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn], conflicts are more likely to be stormy, direct, and overtoccasional big fights are typical. Between fixed signs [Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius], there can be frequent standoffs. Of course, not all squares occur between planets in the same modality, but these examples serve as a general guideline.


Ascendant in Synastry The Ascendant expresses our "body ego" how we express ourselves through our body language and personal mannerisms. It also shows how we cope with the daily demands of life, our first reactions, and how we initiate projects. Naturally, when the Ascendant of one person's chart contacts the planets [or Ascendant] of another, the reaction is immediate and, often, apparent. While it is common enough that there can be an attraction to the physical body, it is more than likely a reaction to the Ascendant person's whole body egothe manner in which he | she comes across, or the "packaging".


Sun in Synastry Where does your Sun fall in another person's chart? When you overlay your Sun onto the chart of your partner, you can gain plenty of insight into how you affect that person, and what areas of their life you take particular interest in. The basic idea is this If your Sun is at, say, 3 degrees of Leo, what house would your Sun occupy in your partner's chart?


Your Sun in your partner's 1st House You can't help but notice each other! Generally, this overlay generates approval between the two more specifically, your approval and affection for your partner is welcomed by your partner, offering a pleasant feeling of being able to be open and free in your presence. You give each other an ego boost, and this overlay tends to offer relationships a feeling of camaraderie and general agreement. You awaken all sorts of issues in your partner, and his or her very identity is on the line in this relationship. You energize and stimulate your partner, making him or her more self-aware. In turn, you feel more valuable, recognized, vital, and important as a result of your partner's reactions to you.


Your Sun in your partner's 2nd House This position does not indicate a feeling of being true peers as the first or eleventh houses, for example, bestow. Because the second house is associated with the phrase "I want", there is a general sense that there is something concrete to be gained through the couple's association with this overlay. You may feel that you are an object rather than a person in your partner's eyes, or a means to an end. Possessiveness should be avoided, as this can lead to either person feeling stifled. In a sexual relationship, there is likely to be considerable desire, but, again, be sure to avoid treating each other as if you own them.


Your Sun in your partner's 3rd House This placement is particularly helpful when you are in close contact with each other on a day-to-day basis, as you tend to feel comfortable with each other's ways of dealing with everyday life. Your partnership is generally easygoing. You are seen by your partner as someone who stimulates him or her. This is a somewhat superficial overlay, and if you are looking to be taken more seriously as a partner, check out where your Moon falls in your partner's chart. If it is also found in an outgoing house, you may not have a very profound impact on your partner emotionally.


Your Sun in your partner's 4th House This position promotes a powerful connection. A very basic sense of shared identity is felt between you and your partner. You have a strong desire to protect and defend your partner, and there is a feeling that you will always be in each other's corner. You affect your partner deeply, and your partner is likely to be very sensitive to your actions. Your partner is likely to feel a strong bond, and might feel somewhat dependent on you for emotional support. This is an intimate and personal connection, and it is not always a rational one. In fact, you may stimulate the inner child of your partner, and he or she may not always respond to you in ways that make sense.


Your Sun in your partner's 5th House This is generally considered to be an excellent position for romance and fun. You bring out your partner's creativity and sense of fun. Often this pair has a strong interest in making children together, although difficult aspects of the Sun to the partner's planets can point to children as being a source of conflict in the relationship; or, if children are not the issue, your partner may feel stifled by your overpowering need to be the only one who gives him | her pleasure. Jealousies and possessiveness can result, and it generally works both ways, though you may display these things more than your partner. Your partner views you as a vehicle through which he or she can have fun, and perhaps as an ego boost. The success of this relationship will depend much on how you respond to this. This is a creative and dynamic overlay, with plenty of romantic attraction and the promise of some truly pleasurable leisure time together.


Your Sun in your partner's 6th House This overlay is an interesting, multi-faceted one. For some reason, your partner's day-to-day affairs become your business. In some way, you help organize your partner's life, or vice versa, and want to know the little things that make up their day. Sometimes it is a conscious thing, and you take pleasure in it. Other times, it is hard to explain why you become so involved in your partner's everyday life. This relationship can be an imbalanced, unequal partnership. The danger with this position is that you can become bossy or prying if it's not kept in check, and your partner may feel somewhat dependent on you. Avoid dictating your partner's every move, even if your partner seems to want it. Eventually, the imbalance in your relationship can be a source of resentment. At your best, you show your affection for your partner by doing little things for them or giving them sound advice. At your worst, you end up criticizing the little things that they do. How this position is handled can often be shown by the aspects that the Sun makes to the partner's planets. Difficult aspects can point to a relationship that is imbalanced, eventually turning into a burden. However, flowing aspects can suggest a relationship in which one or the other takes on a helpful role.


Your Sun in your partner's 7th House This overlay is a magnetic one. This is one of the more powerful overlays in synastry, resulting in a very natural union between two people. Your partner views you as his or her ideal partner. The main caution here, however, is that the union is so powerful that individual identities can feel as if lostwhere exactly you and your partner start and finish may be quite blurred. What starts out as a powerful and natural union might deteriorate into a union comprised of resentment and competitiveness. Although your partner may see you as an ideal mate, you may not reciprocate those feelings in the same way. In some way, you help your partner learn about himself or herself through the relationship. This is because your partner sees in you traits that he or she is unconsciously drawn to in order to effect an inner sense of balance. Compromise is the keyword of this position, as both of you try to maintain balance and harmony in the relationship. Be careful not to let thisdesire for balance degenerate into a "tit for tat" attitude toward one another. Your partner is not as willing to "share" you with others, preferring some sort of commitment or for the relationship to be one-on-one.


Your Sun in your partner's 8th House There is a deep fascination with your partner, and either you simply feel unsettled in his | her presence and part ways, or you feel inexplicably drawn to him | her. There is nothing superficial about this union, when it does occur, and you should be prepared for a deep and sometimes disturbing interaction. The attraction on your partner's side is most obvious. You affect your partner in very deep, even primal, ways. As a result, your partner is especially sensitive to your actions. He or she views the partnership as a profound and intimate connection. You may or may not feel the same way about him or her.


Your Sun in your partner's 9th House Your partner sees you as a person with whom he or she can seek agreement and affirmation for his or her own belief systems. This is a somewhat intellectual partnership, one built on shared visions and ideals. You impact your partner in such a way that his or her belief systems are transformed. You open up a whole new way of looking at the world in your partner, inspiring and motivating him or her to see the world differently, take a few risks, enjoy different cultures, and to be a little more adventurous. You also have the effect of fueling your partner's confidence, and to look beyond the drudgery of daily existence, to dream, and to do more. You expand your partner's horizons, either mental or physical horizons, or both! You stimulate a more adventurous spirit in your partner.


Your Sun in your partner's 10th House You take great interest in your partner's place in society whether that be his or her job or general status. Sometimes this indicates that your partner perceives you to be in a position of authority or status, and he or she naturally tends to follow you along, deferring to that "authority". Some tensions can occur with this position, simply because there isn't a feeling of equality in this relationship. You may feel like an object, or a vehicle, rather than a person, and how you handle your partner's dependency on you can make or break the relationship.


Your Sun in your partner's 11th House Your partner gets the strong feeling that you are someone with whom he or she can share common pleasures and goals. You are your partner's buddy and comrade, and you fully appreciate spending fun leisure times together. This position offers a wonderful theme of tolerance and acceptance. Neither one of you is judging the other. Problems can occur if you are looking for a tighter, more intimate bond with your partner. He or she might not see you as more than a good friend.


Your Sun in your partner's 12th House This overlay can be a confusing one. There can be a general sense of mistrust that stems from misunderstanding. In some cases, you might be very fascinated with your partner, as if he or she marches to the beat of a different drummer. However, you may not "get" what he or she is all about, ultimately, and you should avoid finding irrational reasons to mistrust your partner as a result of this. Your actions will have a profound emotional impact on your partner, as you pull up many emotions in him or her. There may be a sense in your partner of having to give up something or to make sacrifices, as being together can bring up some level of pain or heartache, and possibly the need to be secret and private. The relationship can just as easily be very spiritually rewarding.

Venus in Synastry


Synastry | Venus in Aries When your Venus is 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 someoneyou 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 | How You Relate to a Partner with 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 welland 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!


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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!


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 ticketin 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 topicyou! 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 folkjust 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 directeven aggressiveapproach 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 reasonyou 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 termthe 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 stimulatingeven invigoratingpairing. 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 challengeand 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.


Venus in Aries | How You Relate 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 loveso 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".


..
Synastry | Venus in Taurus When your Venus is in Taurus, your needs in love are largely determined by the pleasing of your senses. The first of the earth signs, Taurus is very physical. You are sensually inclined not sensation-oriented like Aries, but rather keenly tuned in to the world of the physical five senses. [The sixth sense belongs to the Water signs!] To understand the Venusian Taurus nature, it is helpful to think of three "S" words that Taurus values sensuality, stability, and satisfaction. You are somewhat conventional in matters of the heart, with a strong sense of commitment and purpose. You are not romantic in a frilly or dreamy way, yet you certainly have the sense of the romantic when it comes to honoring others and surrounding partnerships in simple luxuries. You are practical, and relationships are taken seriously. This does not necessarily mean that you are incapable of having one-night-stands or the like, but a partnership means a lot to you and you don't take your responsibilities lightly. You have a strong, constant love nature, and you offer loved ones much comfort in your stability. You seek out security through partnership. You tend to hold on to partnerships, and you place basic security needs over emotional or spiritual needs. As a result, others may see you as a rock, or they can easily get frustrated that you overlook the nuances of the relationship, depending on the audience. Your tastes are well-developed, and you prefer to surround yourself with things that feel luxurious and comfortable, yet simple. Your taste in home decor reflects your own love nature! Satisfaction is important to you, and your lover's physical presence is demanded. Unless Venus is strongly aspected to Neptune, for example, you are very much concerned with all that is physical, often completely ignoring the spiritual needs of your partner and relationship. You are persevering and you are not afraid to wait if you know you are likely to get your prize! Changes make you unsettled, and you react to any sudden changes in the course of your relationship by digging in your heels.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries While you are more than capable of taking things slow, your partner craves instant gratification in love. 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. Because your partner gets off on excitement and challenge, he or she might find you a tad slow, or even dull, in your approach to romance. You are very focused on sensual pleasures and comforts, while your lover's style is more utilitarian. You are a peace lover [although you won't shrink from any argument], and you look for harmony in your environment, but "harmony" looks rather monotonous in your partner's eyes. This is a very passionate pairing, and your partner, at least on the surface of things, is likely to be the leader or aggressor in this relationship. Still, however receptive you are, you are nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in your own right! You are strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge you out of your 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 are not afraid of, and your partner actually enjoys, a challenge!


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Your similarities in terms of needs and styles in love can be both pleasing and difficult. Both of you are earthy, sensual lovers. Love for you both is a tangible, sensual experience, and neither of you takes relationships lightly. Safety and comfort are important in your love relationships, and your partner feels the same way. You will more than likely agree about what to spend your money on, if you share finances, and how to decorate your home, if you share space. Because you are alike in matters of the heart, however, there can be some difficulties with clashes of will and stubbornness. Both of you are rather passive, although magnetic, so it may be a little difficult to get things off the ground. Certainly, if things do get off the ground, the relationship has a powerful chance to last. There may be a tendency to inactivity when you are together, simply because each of you is rather self-satisfied and content. Watch that the relationship doesn't get itself into a rut, and that communication is kept alive. Nevertheless, your shared commitment, tastes, and needs can help cement a relationship that is rewarding to you both.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! You are a steady person in love, very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. Your partner tends to live in the moment when it comes to love, and is an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. Your partner values verbal exchanges, while you value stability and security. Your lover shows his or her love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. You, on the other hand, are less concerned about variety and fun than you are with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to you, and both constancy and physical presence do as well. Your partner might complain that you take what he | she says seriously, and wants to hold him or her to it. Your partner's moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and he or she doesn't like being pinned down. When you are in need of regeneration, you tend to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When your lover is distressed or out of whack, he or she wants to be able to talk it through. He or she enjoys new experiences and environments, while you are not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when your partner is unsure, he or she can find great strength in you; and you can certainly enjoy your partner's wit and social easehe or she is wonderful company.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer You instantly sense a seriousness and warmth in your partner that you are drawn to. The dependability your partner senses in your style appeals to him or her as well. You are a person your partner can truly feel safe and comfortable with, and that is important for him or her. You will appreciate your partner's warmth, as much of it is tangible. Although your partner tends to be the more emotional of the two, you can help your partner to feel more secure than most people. Security is most important to both of you! The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned, and too predictable. You don't readily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and your partner is certainly an intuitive person. Your Venus in Cancer partner sometimes needs to be pushed and prodded in order to open up, and because that does not come naturally to you, communication can suffer as a result. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and your partner might feel you are a little too stubborn for his or her liking. You revel in sensual pleasures, as does your partner, and ultimately you are most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please your partner! Once your partner has gained your trust and loyalty, you can be like the Rock of Gibraltaryou could be exactly what your partner needs to steady his or her sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe his or her fears. It would be wise to try to understand your partner's occasional moodiness in love. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo Your partner senses your steadfastness and staying power, admiring your strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be somewhat flirtatious and playful, and you might misinterpret this behavior as disloyalty. You are inclined to be somewhat possessive, but you must understand that your partner is actually quite loyal. He or she simply enjoys attention. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means each of you tends to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and your partner senses that you will give him or her just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. Your partner might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama ["I absolutely need to buy this"]. The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although you appreciate the finer things in life, just like your partner does, you put more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love...ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your partner's willingness to make adjustments. You tend to be a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that your partner offers any relationship. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, you are more capable of calming your partner's nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make him or her feel whole and scads more comfortable in his or her own skin. Your partner is sure to appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds you. You sense your lover's commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to your partner in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and you always appreciate this work ethic, although you have to watch that your partner doesn't take on too much of the hard work. Although your lover is rather humble in matters of the heart, he or she needs to feel appreciated.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take a rather practical and earthy approach to love, your partner inclines to be intellectual about it [your lover thinks and talks a lot about his or her relationship]. All too often, Earth signs [including Taurus], interpret the intellectual approach to love typical of Air signs as either lacking in sincerity or disloyalty. Your lover can easily become frustrated with your seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. You are sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time your partner invests in your relationship, although you may eventually question whether his or her approach is actually getting results. You see, you are far more interested in what works in lovewhat you see in tangible terms. What "could be", "would be", or "might be" doesn't pull much weight with you. With a natural inclination to see where a relationship needs adjustment, your partner is usually more than willing to compromisea trait that might be considered a necessity with you, as you are not the most flexible of lovers. Your partner's thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied attitude. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful. Mutual respect and tolerance will be important in order to make this partnership work.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnershipsor each othereasily. Your partner tends to be more intense about his or her attachments than you are, and your overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your partner's emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other's strong personality and willingness to commit. Your partner senses in you the ability to "go the distance", and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to both of you, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. You may find your partner overly complex, while your partner might consider your needs too simple! Your desire is for peace and stability, while your partner thrives on boat-rocking from time to time. Your partner tends to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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. Your partner enjoys having fun in love, and is capable of infusing your relationship with heaps of excitement. Excitement in a partnership is not as important to you. In fact, in your book, stability and predictability are attractive qualities of any partnership. Your partner is a risk-taker in love [and finances!], while you tend to play it safe. You dig in your heels and get comfortable, and your partner has his or her sights on bigger things. A tendency to believe that the grass is always greener somewhere else is something that can easily frustrate you, as your needs are quite simple and contentment is your goal. Your possessiveness can create serious problems in this partnership. Your partner is a much happier and giving person when he or she feels free. Enjoy your partner's spirited attitude toward love and partnership. At the same time, it would be wise for your lover to understand your 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.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other's interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart [and the bank account] can do wonders for any partnership. Your partner is more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and he or she may sometimes find you a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to the both of you.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! You are somewhat more traditional in your view of partnerships. You value constancy and dependability in your relationships. On the other hand, your partner resists doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new track rather than traveling along the "beaten track". You want your love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. Your partner knows how to stick with things, as you do, and isn't especially attracted to complications as well. However, he or she doesn't find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn't seem to be going somewhere. Ideally, you'll find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your partner's quirkiness can be fun and even electric. You can remind your partner how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work.


Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. You are strong and dependable in relationshipsperhaps exactly what your partner needs, at least most of the time! Your lover doesn't always feel strong, simply because he or she is a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as yourself will help ground your lover. He or she is certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships. You might find that your lover views your dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on his or her mood. Sometimes, your lover considers you to be a bit too set in your ways. Other times, he or she will fully appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your needs in partnership. Your partner is likely to take great comfort in knowing that he or she can lean on you when need be. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. You might sometimes complain that your lover is indecisive or too changeablemoody, perhaps. But if you recognize that his or her tenderness [something that you are sure to value] is an absolute constant, you are sure to "overlook" his or her seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well.


...
Synastry | Venus in Gemini When your Venus is in Gemini, you look for lively relationships with plenty of activity and communication. When you are in love, you make light and witty company, even if your Sun is in a more serious sign like Taurus or Cancer. You look for a partner who can hold a real conversation. Scratch thatyou want somebody who can talk about multiple subjects in a short period of time. When you're in love, you can be a real tease! You flirt, joke, and cajoleand you turn others on with the promise that love will be fun with you. I'd like to take this opportunity to address the reputation Gemini has for being somewhat dishonest. Evasive, yes, but dishonest is off the mark. Venusian Geminis are not in touch with their feelings enough to give a concrete answer when they are cornered. Or perhaps you can say that they are so mentally stimulated that they are more aware than most of all of the possible answers or reasons. So, if you are asked by your partner, "Why have you been avoiding me?", for example, your answer may seem to have been pulled out of a hat. The truth is, you don't always know the answer right away, but you are so communicative that a response comes out of you anyhow. Neither are you the type to excuse yourself to soul-search, then get back to your lover with a meaningful answer. You're always quick to reply. This quality is often misinterpreted as insincerity. You are not the most sentimental of lovers, although you do have a wonderful way with words. You value exchanging and sharing ideas in a partnership, and a good conversation makes powerful foreplay for you! Your urge for freedom and variety in love, coupled with a tendency to skirt intense topics, can lead some partners to think that you're as substantial as cotton candy. Although some Venus in Gemini people go through lovers like Kleenex, just to avoid the frightening thought of having to commit oneself to only one partner, most are very capable of loyalty in the long-term. They simply want their relationships to be interesting. Commitment, to you, doesn't mean things have to be dull.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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. You are more intellectual than your partner, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, you are in the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with your lover. Your partner does enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticketin fact, if the talk drags on too long, your lover finds 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. Your partner can easily become impatient with your indecisiveness. As well, your partner finds it disconcerting when your conversations stray from the most favorite topichim | her! 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.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! Your partner is a steady person in love. He | she is very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. You tend to live in the moment when it comes to love, and are an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. You value verbal exchanges, while your partner values stability and security. You show your love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. Your partner, on the other hand, is less concerned about variety and fun than he | she is with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to your partner. Your constancy and physical presence does as well. You might complain that your partner takes what you say seriously, and wants to hold you to it. Your moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and you don't like being pinned down. When your partner is in need of regeneration, he | she tends to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When you are distressed or out of whack, you want to be able to talk it through with your partner. You enjoy new experiences and environments, while your partner is not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when you are down or unsure, you can find great strength in your rock-solid partner; and your partner can certainly enjoy your wit and social easeyou are wonderful company.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Gemini Because both of you have similar needs in relationships, your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the Venusian Gemini position! You will be pleased with your partner's willingness to talk, have fun, and ability to liven up a rainy day. Together you can enjoy some wonderful cerebral moments as well as lighter entertainment. Your relationship is less likely than most to get clouded over with possessiveness or jealousies, although it can certainly run hot and cold at times! Both of you get turned on quicklyand turned off just as rapidly. If you're not on the same cycle, which is bound to happen from time to time, there can be quite a few stormy moments! For this reason, this pairing is probably more suitable for a shorter affair than a long-term commitment, unless there are stronger connections [some boosts from Saturn, for example] between your charts. Nevertheless, the relationship can be very lively and interesting. Both of you are insatiably curious, and your interests can change quickly. Many partners have difficulty understanding this trait [they can easily find it threatening], but your partner should, at least in theory, identify with you on this level.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, and vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. Your partner has a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. His | her memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding, and extremely flattering! Your partner cherishes you, showering you with his | her concern and caring gestures. Your style in love is more cerebral than your partner's. Your partner is fascinated with your often cheerful disposition, your flexibility, and your intelligent charm. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. You are flirtatious with your partner, and your teasing is actually a true show of love. Until your partner recognizes this, it can be difficult for him | her to feel nurtured and cared for. Your lover is sensitive in matters of the heart, although he | she doesn't always want to show it. More than likely, your partner will play along with your lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. You believe that any problem can be solved by talking it through. Your partner will certainly try to work through problems with you, but, in his | her heart, believes in and values a more emotional bonda bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it is defined with words. Your partner shows love through gestures and commitment, and may leave you wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, you will be able to lean on your lover for emotional support and value his | her ability to make you feel safe. This is important because you can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments in your life. Your partner will appreciate your flexibility more than anything, and reward you with a commitment that is difficult to break. Try to pay more attention to tenderness in your exchanges with your lover, as this can only strengthen the bond between you.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful loverssome might even say childlike! Your love of variety, however, may leave your partner feeling a little threatened, simply because your partner desires to be the center of your attention! When you are in love, you enjoy talking, and your lover will appreciate the easy flow of communication between you. Your partner's immense need for security in partnership may surface as what appears to be downright jealousy, especially since you don't appear [to the naked eye, at least] to be the most loyal or steadfast of partners. When your partner feels insecure or threatened, he | she is given to melodrama. Because this is not your nature in love, you don't fully understand this kind of behavior, and you might even find your partner's displays somewhat amusing and entertaining! As fun as your partner is at times, constancy is more important to him | her than it is to you. Your lover might interpret your need for variety and stimulation as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and [mostly] positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo Because your partner values intelligence and communication in a partner, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Virgo partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to both of you, you may be less discriminating than your partner in terms of who you communicate withas well as what you talk about. Your partner comes alive in an established relationship. You, on the other hand, require a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to your partner for mental stimulation. This is healthy for you, but it may be somewhat intimidating for your lover, as he | she prefers to be the most indispensable person in your life. You have a rather happy-go-lucky disposition in love, and you love to tease and joke. Your lover tends to be more sensitive in matters of the heart, and might take some of your cajoling a little too seriously for your liking. You thrive on variety, and you tire easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. Your partner is quite restless as well, but is at his | her best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although you can take this to a greater extreme than your partner and this can make him | her feel uncomfortable. If your Venus in Virgo lover begins to question your sincerity and constancy, remind your partner how much you appreciate your relationship. Thoughtfulness might make all the difference!


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounce and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You will certainly fill your partner's need for communication, as he | she thrives on feedback. There can be considerable respect between you. You enjoy plenty of social and mental stimulationthe more variety, the better and so does your Venusian Libra partner! However, your partner's focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while you are not so specific in your needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may complain that you are not as romantic as he | she is, and that you are a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with your wit. You may wonder why your partner seems to need you to spend a lot of time together. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. Nevertheless, this relationship can contain markedly less of the jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperating with each other is a piece of cake!


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers [albeit in completely different ways!], and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. You are a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that you flirt with everyone, but you do infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into your relationship. Your partner's love nature is intense. He or she craves intimacy, and when intimacy is threatened, your partner can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which your partner attempts to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio he or she is. Your partner knows how to push your buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. Your partner wants your soul, not just your body! You have an entirely different view of partnership. You want it to be fun, while your partner will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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. Your partner tends to be more passionate than you in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting his or her partner 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. Your partner values honesty from a lover, while you value 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.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. You have a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than your partner, and you can certainly help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity. Your partner is rather concerned about commitment, and often plans for the future. He | she is sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. Your partner likes his or her solitude, and you like your space. If you can avoid feeling threatened by your partner's need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of your many and varied interests, this can work well. This partner is more able to handle your quips and teasing than others, although he or she might complain that your head is in the clouds. His or her feet are definitely on the ground, but your partner does not shy away from ambition. You might find your partner downright boring. This isn't to say your partner is boring, but you do favor a livelier, more active partner than him or her. Your lover might be inclined to think you are as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa!


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You will find that your partner, more than most people, understands your tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but your partner appreciates your changeability. Your partner, however, is more stubborn than you are. Your moods change quickly, and while your partner can hardly be labeled predictable, he or she is not as flexible as you are. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, you will probably be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterizes your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while you work on keeping things fresh, your partner will help steady you. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.


Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your desire for communication is strong, and your partner, too, wants to connect with a partner. However, you put more value in mental stimulation and your partner values the power of understatement in romance. While you prefer everything to be defined, your partner has a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. Your partner relies on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering him or her for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get you very farperhaps only frustrated! Your energy leaves your partner unsettled at times, while his or her elusiveness can be difficult for you to understand. Your playfulness may, at times, unnerve your rather sensitive partner, although he or she is generally forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairingboth of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.


....
Synastry | Venus in Cancer When your Venus is in Cancer, you look for security and safety in partnership. You are the most caring and nurturing of lovers. Your lover is likely to be flattered by your excellent memory for all they say and doin some cases, he or she could be intimidated as well! Sincerity from your partner is important to you, and you are attracted to people who you consider to be natural and genuine. You are the most intuitive of lovers, finding it easy to "read" your partner's character and feelings. As mentioned above, this can be flattering to many, and cause for concern for others! Which, of course, is fine by you, because the ideal partner for you is comfortable in his or her own skin. Anyone threatened by your "feelers" may not be sincere enough for you! Appreciation, security, and tenderness are most important to you in matters of the heart. You work hard at accommodating the people you love, taking care of them in every way you can. Because you are not very comfortable with confrontations, you are prone to side-stepping problems. You are easily hurt, but you can work hard at concealing that fact. It is difficult for you to forget any kinds of actions that you consider betrayals on the part of your lover, but you are not one to run away from your commitments. You would benefit from expressing your hurts instead of letting them stew inside of you. In many cases, your partner may not even know that they've hurt you! Your charm is of the understated kind, and you may not always know just how attractive you are to others! The truth is, no matter how you come across, you fairly ooze sweetness to members of the opposite sex. Of course, not everyone will find that quality attractive, but to those that do, you can be irresistible. It can be difficult for people to stay angry with you. This may be because you have mastered the "art" of playing innocent! You are especially attracted to neediness, and you might work hard at keeping the people you love in a state of needing you. Their dependency on you feeds you, making you feel loved, but you can have a love-hate relationship with that dependency over time. In some cases, Venus in Cancer people might wonder if they've created a monster! You do get off on taking care of your lover, often at the expense of your own needs. It would be helpful if you could detach yourself from some of the problems of your loved ones, even just a little, and recognize that you are not responsible for others' happiness. This concept is difficult for you to learn. You understand it, but living by it is a completely different thing. You observe your partner very closely, and the love you offer holds the rare quality of cherishing. [See Venus in Cancer for more details on the Venus in Cancer temperament].


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries This combination definitely makes for a bit of an odd couple! Your Venus is Moon-ruled, while your partner's is Mars-ruled. There is a distinct difference between what is important to you in love, and what your partner considers important. Your partner rides high on spontaneity, and is quite open in his or her expression of feelings, if not a little erratic. You tend to take your time when it comes to both expressing feelings and moving a relationship forward. You are often defensive with your feelings, while your partner is 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 you, but your partner expresses love in a more direct, aggressive manner. His or her assertive style can border on being downright inconsiderate, which is the polar opposite of how you treat a loved one! Your lover wants instant gratification and doesn't have much patience for beating around the bush, but you often require others to gently and subtly coax you to open up and express your 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, your partner may become an expert at infusing your relationship with energy and excitement, and you can offer the support and security that doesn't come naturally to your partner.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus The dependability you sense in your Venus in Taurus lover is appealing to you. This is a person you can truly feel safe and comfortable with. Your partner will appreciate your warm, even practical style of expressing love. Although you tend to be the more emotional of the two, your partner can help you to feel more secure than most signs. The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned, and too predictable. Your partner doesn't easily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and is not as intuitive as you are. He or she is not the type who will push and prod you to open up, and as a result, communication can suffer. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and you might feel your partner is a little too stubborn for your liking. He or she revels in sensual pleasures, as do you, and ultimately is most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please you! Once you've gained his or her trust and loyalty, your lover can be like the Rock of Gibraltarhe or she might be exactly what you need to steady your sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe your fears. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, as well as vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. You have a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. Your memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding! You cherish your partner, showering him or her with your concern and caring gestures. Your partner's style in love is more cerebral, and his or her cheerful disposition, flexibility, and intelligent charm can fascinate you. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. Your partner is flirtatious with you, and his or her teasing is actually a true show of love. Until you recognize this, it can be difficult for you to feel nurtured and cared for. You are sensitive in matters of the heart, although you don't always want to show it. More than likely, you will play along with your partner's lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. Your partner believes that any problem can be solved by talking it through. You will certainly try to work through problems, but, in your heart, you believe in and value a more emotional bonda bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it were to be defined with words. You show love through practical gestures as well as commitment, and may leave your partner wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, your partner will be able to lean on you for emotional support and will value your ability to make him or her feel safe. This is important because your partner can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments. You are likely to appreciate your partner's flexibility more than anything, and you will reward your lover with a commitment that is difficult to break. Your partner needs to consciously pay more attention to tenderness in his or her exchanges with you, as this can only serve to strengthen the bond between you.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in CancerBoth of you are protective, caring lovers. Because you share the same Venusian sign, both of your strengths and your weaknesses in relationships are highlighted! Sentimentality will run high in your partnership. Others will find you the most caring, sweetest of couples. You are inclined to dote on one another, offering sympathy to your partner, and gathering sympathy from him or her as well. The problem can be too much of a good thing! All of that mothering each other probably needs a bit of structure and discipline or you could get carried away with emotions. Both of you are moody in love, and in terms of sensitivity, you've met your match! You are likely to agree on commitment to family and security, and you'll be very devoted to each other. There is a tendency for both of you to be somewhat shy in love, and, as a result, this relationship may be a little difficult to initiate or get off the ground. However, once you're past the perhaps awkward initial phases of the romance, and you are sure of your mutual feelings, commitment to one another is easy and solid.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo While you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and settled, your partner thrives onand wants to be consumed withthe desire and passion of love. Your lover easily feels threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down! You demonstrate your love in subtle ways, revealing sincere concern about how your partner is doing and tending to his or her basic emotional needs. Your partner will appreciate this attention and your sentimentality, but might feel threatened by your lack of "showiness". Your partner might find your mood swings in love rather disconcerting, and you may question your lover's commitment, finding his or her flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Your partner is, in reality, fiercely loyal, and flirtatiousness is actually fueled by the need for flattery as well as an infatuation with feeling attractive. Until you understand and accept this, you can easily find your partner's behavior distressing! Your subtle, and oftentimes indirect, approach in love can be confusing for your more frank and direct partner. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs and planets! Because these signs are "next door neighbors", they don't share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship...for you, to build a sense of safety and comfort, and for your partner, to build confidence. What you need to understand is that your lover has his or her ego tied up in relationships your partner lives for love and romance! You will appreciate your lover's sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your partner's appetite for attention and affection, you more than anyone are likely to make him or her feel special.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationshipperhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner's mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environmentexactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner's approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in LibraInitially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. You express your love in a distinctly personal manner, while your partner is definitely more intellectually inclined, and his or her manner can seem particularly impersonal in your eyes. Your partner is adept at honing in on what you need and what makes you uncomfortableso much so that he or she might change their style completely in order to keep the peace. Your partner will quickly feel you out and get to know that you are a more sensitive soul than most. The risk here is that both of you might compromise your own needs in order to avoid hurting each other's feelings, thereby maintaining the status quo. Both of you value harmony. You are capable of putting up huge walls around yourself, and communication is utterly critical to your partner's sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more your partner presses you partner for the feedback he or she thrives on, the more you may be inclined to withdraw. As charming as your partner is, he or she might be able to coax you out of your shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. Your partner will find you extraordinarily caring and supportive, and you will be thrilled at how willing your lover is to accommodate you and to compromise!


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similarand familiarvein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel "at home". Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to your partner, and you sense an all-encompassing love in your lover that appeals to you. At times, that love can feel all-consuming, but this doesn't scare you like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love you give is rather similar, and your Venus in Scorpio lover doesn't fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, he or she lives for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your reaction to hurts is often internalized, while your partner can grow cold and unresponsive when he or she feels slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in SagittariusThis 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 you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and secure, your partner is unhappy when a relationship becomes too predictable or confining. You show your love through your attention and caring, and this wonderful quality can sometimes feel lost on your more free-wheeling partner. Relationships that support growth in all directions are what gets your partner high and happy. He or she needs 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 partner's best quality, but it is certainly your department! Intimacy, for you, is intoxicating. Rejection is your worst fear! If the love is there, your partner is certainly capable of committing, but his or her style may rub you the wrong way until you understand that it is just thata style. Freedom and energy are important "ingredients" in a satisfying relationship in your lover's eyes, and no amount of coercing or theatrics will change those needs. However, if you can put some faith [one of Sagittarius' favorite words!] in your partner, and give him or her some freedom of movement, you won't feel the need for tactics in order to keep your lover with you. If this relationship is allowed the time and space to grow, you can have some great fun with your lover, and he or she can certainly benefit from your more tender, emotional touch.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn Opposites attract, and you and your partner's Venus [love] signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while your partner is more practically inclined. He or she prefers to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of "feeling each other out", and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each otheryou in a nurturing way and your partner in a practical sense. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other's differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your "lists" in the relationship department!


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. You want a relationship that is very personal and committed, while your partner is more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination of the differences between you. There's a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a softer charm, while your partner's charm is a little more direct and offbeat. Your partner's behavior can be unsettling to you, simply because you are looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. Your lover is a freedom-lover, and his or her love may seem universal and impersonalthe style doesn't hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that you crave. Your tendency to wrap yourself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating for your Venus in Aquarius partner, but can cause a problem if your lover interprets it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other's needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this pairing going.


Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. You want to take care of the people you love, offering them security and love, and your partner is particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is this fundamental difference between your love natures you are more clannish and personal in your affections, while your partner tends toward universal love. The sensitivity he or she expresses doesn't always make you feel special, as you sometimes may sense that your partner is in love with mankind in general, not just you! You may find yourself desiring to redirect your partner's love into more focused channels. He or she may easily fall for the underdog, and you may feel that your partner needs a little directing in this respect. You, too, are attracted to the needy, but you have met, in your Venus in Pisces lover, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and you may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that can be a little disconcerting! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It's an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable.


.....
Synastry | Venus in Leo When your Venus is in Leo, you can be "stuck" in the first stage of romance, when passions run high and you can't seem to get each other out of your minds. You never want this stage to end! When you are in love, the relationship consumes you. You radiate the love that you receive from your partner, and reverberate with the energy of love. You are ardent and affectionate with your partner. The adoration you give may not be [and probably won't be] matched, and this is when you falter. Truth is, your lover may have a different style of expressing his | her love. It may be just as ardent as your love, but you tend to equate adoring expressions of love with love itself. You tend to hold on to love, sometimes longer than you perhaps should, and you may work hard on forcing your lover into the script you have unconsciously written for him or her! When you are happy with your lover [which often coincides with your perception that your lover is right there with you in an emotional sense], you are generous to a fault, with little thought of the future. You take the ups and downs of your romantic relationships to heart, more so than most people, simply because you invest so much of your ego and identity into love! Your warmth is extremely dependent upon the amount of attention and affection you receive. Although you may begin relationships with considerable ardency, if you are not showered with attention and made to feel special over the course of time, you will surely lose passion for the relationship. Your need for appreciation from your lover is paramount, yet all too often you come on strong in love and your partner misinterprets your ardor as brazen confidence. This can be a vicious circle, because what your lover may not know is that, in fact, you are not as sure of yourself as you seem, and his or her reassurances are vital! It is easy for you to jump into relationships without too much thought. However, your expectations are high, and your partner needs to understand that for a relationship with you to survive over the long haul, it needs to be stoked constantly. You will hang on to a relationship longer than most, but your expectations are so high that disappointment is almost inevitable. More than most signs, you would benefit from waiting to marry when you are older and more sure of yourself. When you're happy in your relationship, your warmth and eagerness are admirable!


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries Both of you are spirited lovers. You and your partner approach love in a fiery, direct manner. Sparks fly between you! Both of you fall in love quickly, although you tend to take love a little more seriously than your partner does. Both of you are rather me-centered in love, which of course can be somewhat problematic! You and your Venus in Aries lover are competitive folkjust 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 you crave may not always be forthcoming with your Venus in Aries partner, who inclines to be somewhat blunt and unpolished in style. You may appreciate the simple charm of your partner, or find it infuriating. Probably it's a bit of both! Your style of expression in love is certainly more flowery. Chances are just as good that your partner will find you exciting and infuriating at the same time!


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus You value your partner's steadfastness and staying power. You admire his or her strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be quite possessive, and might misinterpret your flirtatiousness as disloyalty, however. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means both of you tend to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and you sense that your partner will give you just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. You might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama ["I absolutely need to buy this"]. The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although your partner appreciates the finer things in life, just like you do, he | she puts more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem is a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful loverssome might even say childlike! You want to be the center of attention, and your partner's love of variety may leave you feeling a bit threatened. Your partner loves to talk, and you appreciate the easy flow of communication between you and your partner. However, you might find your partner somewhat lacking in the loyalty and steadfastness department! You need to feel secure in your partnership. When you are feeling insecure about your relationship, you are given to melodramasomething that your Venus in Gemini lover doesn't fully understand [he | she might even find your displays somewhat amusing and entertaining!]. You may interpret your partner's need for variety as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and [mostly] positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer You want to be consumed with the desire and passion of love, and you feel threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down. Your Venus in Cancer partner, on the other hand, loves the security of a "settled" relationship. Your Venus in Cancer partner shows his or her love in a more subtle manner than you do, as he or she tends to your basic emotional needs, often behind the scenes. You will appreciate this attention and his or her sentimentality, but might feel threatened by the lack of "showiness". You might find your partner's mood swings in love rather disconcerting, especially when your lover retreats, and your partner may question your commitment, finding your flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Although you are generally fiercely loyal, your need for flattery and your infatuation with flirting may be distressing for your Venus in Cancer lover. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs! Because they are "next door neighbors", they don't share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship...for you, to build your confidence, and for your partner, to build a sense of safety and comfort. Your partner will appreciate your sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your appetite for attention and affection, your partner is sure to make you feel special.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Leo Oh, the drama! Both of you have similar styles in love, and your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of your mutual Venus placement. On one hand, you will thoroughly enjoy your partner's intensity and passion. Both of you seem to be forever stuck in the dreamy first stages of romance, yet you also look for security in your partnerships. Your mutual desire for long-lasting romance and passion, as well as security, can be satisfied by one another. On the other hand, you both demand to be center stage in your partnership, and this can cause some problems. If you are in one of your melodramatic moods, who will come to your rescue? Your Venus in Leo partner might, but only if he | she is in that mood. Chances are rather high, however, that your partner will be needing some fawning and special attention too. This can be a love-hate relationshipa David Bowie lyric comes to mind "when it's good, it's really good; and when it's bad I go to pieces." Both of you want to feel extra specialyou want to be the best in your partner's eyes. This is a very passionate combination with much potential, but it may at times feel like too much of a good thing.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo In love, you live for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. Your partner, on the other hand, is a little more focused on the future. He | she worries about the practical side of the partnership. You express your love for your partner in a lavish, showy manner. You are consumed with the romance of your relationship, and often expect your partner to feel the same way. Whether or not your Venus in Virgo feels the same way, the manner in which he | she expresses love feelings is distinctly different than your expression. Your partner easily feels threatened by your experience and your occasional bragging sessions. In your desire to be viewed as irresistible, you may inadvertently make your Venus in Virgo partner feel insecure. Remember that he | she expresses love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. Sure, it doesn't sound exceptionally romantic, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and not something you naturally tend to. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signsthey don't share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encountersand so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that your partner is entirely wrapped up in the "we" of your partnership, while you are more concerned about "me". You will be thrilled that your partner is so very willing to compromise and accommodate you. However, over time, your Venus in Libra partner might refer to his or her mental log and start tallying things up. You see, your partner is very concerned with equality and fairness. Even though your partner is quite willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside and can eventually get the best of your partnership if you're not careful. Your partner might find you a tad too intense at times, while you might consider your partner somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for your liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where your partner is always running after you, trying to make you happy. It can be all too easy to take advantage of your partner's desire to keep the peace in your relationship, but remember that he or she is likely to resent a partnership in which the "give and take" is not balanced.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may be a big issue between you. Your partner quickly feels you out and learns your boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water [Scorpio] has the power to put out Fire [Leo]. What happens is your natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might be threatening or disconcerting to your Venus in Scorpio partner, and he or she might find it easy to pull you down, or "rain on your parade". Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When your Venus in Scorpio partner withholds sex, generally because he or she is feeling unloved or unappreciated, you take it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. You will appreciate your partner's emotional commitment to the relationship, and your lover will respect your strength, as he | she is attracted to intensityeven crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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. You are naturally more loyal than your restless partner, and loyalty from your partner is very important to you. This doesn't mean that your partner is promiscuousit simply means that his or her restlessness can intimidate you or leave you feeling insecure. Your partner's far-sightedness means that he or she isn't always focused on what is right under his or her nosenamely, you! And, focus on you and your relationship is essential to your 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 you need to understand is that your partner dislikes the feeling of being fenced in. If your partner feels free, he or she is more likely to stay true. Stifle your partner, and your relationship will quickly become volatile. However, this relationship is an especially passionate one that neither of you could forget easily.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn You are insatiably expressive in your love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. Your Venus in Capricorn partner possesses a more steady, practical view of relationships. You have a tendency to dramatize your feelings [you don't just like something, you adore it; you aren't simply hurt by what your partner says, you are devastated, etc.]. Your partner, on the other hand, is more reserved about his or her feelings and desires. In fact, your Venus in Capricorn partner may find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. Some may question the sincerity behind your demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Remind yourself that the constancy of your partner's feelings for you are very valuable. Your partner is very much concerned about where your relationship is headed. You, on the other hand, are living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, your lover believes in moderation, and you are inclined to go overboard in both areas. Your ego is tied up in how your partner treats you, and there is the risk that your apparent over-confidence will prompt your lover to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, you are likely to lose interest fast. Your partner needs to understand that you are far more insecure in love than you let on. Your partner values solitude from time to time, and his or her withdrawal is sure to fire you up. Your head is often in the clouds, and your vision of the future is generally positive, while your partner is largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. Your partner might enjoy your ability to brighten up his or her day, and you will love his or her wonderful sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This is the case of "opposites attract". Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite each other, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! Opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Leo, place great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self, while Aquarius is more concerned with the greater group process. Your partner expresses his or her feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate you. You have a fight or flight reaction either you see this as a challenge or you run in the opposite direction! You are largely subjective, while your partner is objective. Both of you like to be special and "different", but you want to be special, in the sense that you want to be the best, in your partner's eyes. Your partner wants to be valued for his | her uniqueness in terms of the group. You are personal, involved, and intense in your romantic dealings; your partner is impersonal and rather detached. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this "shadow" personality in the other.


Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. You are direct and generous with your affections. Your Venus in Pisces lover is probably just as generous, but his or her manner of expressing love is markedly different than yours. The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing [Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn't come easily to you]. Both of you are incurable romantics. Your style, however, is personal, while your partner's loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but "universal" may be the best term for your partner's love nature. You appreciate your lover's warmth, but his | her indirect and evasive approach is threatening to you. Venus in Pisces lovers seem to be so warm and affectionate, but you can't help but sense that he | she loves everyone that way, not just you. You need to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin your Venus in Pisces lover down and get that specific attention that you crave [or demand!]. You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. You may be flattered by your lover's sentimentality and dependency. However, when you are unhappy with him or her, you can easily become theatrical. Your lover may interpret your dramas as abusive, which can shock you because you consider your displays honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. Your lover is very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your emotions in a flash. He or she may expect the same in return, but you prefer your lover to be direct and to the point with his or her wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious.


......
Synastry | Venus in Virgo When your Venus is in Virgo, you express love by doing things for, and fussing over, your loved one. You notice little things about your partner, make mental notes of their likes and dislikes [this may sound contrived, but it's notit's simply the way you're wired!], and genuinely try to help your lover in practical ways. You listen to what your lover has to say, and you have something sensible and intelligent to say in response! In fact, you are great at communicating about your relationship. One dilemma that can easily happen with this position Your partner doesn't always know how to please you. You might have a simple answer, but he | she may still wonder. You see all of the details of your relationship. You worry about its viability, and tend to the practical details of partnership. These are important contributions to the relationship, but because they lack glamour, your partner may not always appreciate you. You are not the most romantic partner, and your tastes are rather simple [although, as mentioned before, it is hard for others to see that simplicity because you may have a habit of fussing]. Can't see the forest for the trees? Your partner might accuse you of this, and it may be true. You will benefit from sitting back and infusing yourself with some faith in the big picture, once in a while. But, you are needed! And there are partners who will see that. You work hard at making yourself indispensable in your partner's life. Generally, you don't throw yourself into love affairs too readily. This does not mean you are chaste, like the Virgo of yore. Some Venus in Virgo natives can even be promiscuous. But when it comes to gooey romance, where lovers bare all, you are rather selective and self-contained. You are a very sensual being who wants to feel safe before giving yourself to another. Venus in Virgo has a reputation for being critical. This does happen, but it generally is a symptom of insecurity. You can't help but see the failings and the holes in any partnership, and you can sometimes be quite reticent about entering a partnership. Generally, though, you will see what's wrong with a person at the outset of a relationship when it doesn't feel safe to you as yet. It's a defense mechanism more than anything! Your own insecurities can propel you to see faults and problems in your partner. Once you feel safe, however, you are not quite the fussbudget Venus in Virgo is made out to be. You value effort put into a relationship [in fact, for many with this position, effort from their partner is at the top of their list].


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries Here, we are mixing Fire [Aries] and Earth [Virgo you!]. 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 his | her need for stimulation and excitement contrasted with your desire for safety and security. You can be quite active together, and pour some energy into activities, but your partner's impulsive and competitive nature may leave you feeling insecure. Both of you are simple in your needs, but those needs are markedly different. Your partner isn't the most flowery of lovers, and neither are you, but he | she can be downright insensitive at times. You are a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. You will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but you do want some appreciation for all your efforts. Both of you value honesty, and you'll generally get it from each other. Your partner will likely appreciate your willingness to please, in the moments when he | she notices this trait. Money matters will most certainly bring some conflict, as you are more cautious and a natural worrier and your partner can be the classic impulse buyer. Shared interests are important to you, and this may also be a problem, as you and your partner are really quite dissimilar!


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love...ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your willingness to make adjustments. Your partner is a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that you so gracefully offer any partnership. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, your partner is more capable of calming your nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make you feel whole and scads more comfortable in your own skin. You appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds your partner. He | she senses your commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to you in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and this may indeed happen with your Venus in Taurus partner, although you might be the one doing more of the hard work.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini Because you tend to value intelligence and communication, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Gemini partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to you, your partner may be less discriminating than you in terms of who he | she communicates with. You come alive in an established relationship. Your partner, on the other hand, requires a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to you for mental stimulation. This is healthy for your partner, but it may be somewhat intimidating for you, as you prefer to be the most indispensable person in any partner's life. You also tend to be more sensitive in matters of the heart than your happy-go-lucky lover. Your partner thrives on variety, and tires easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. You are restless as well, but you are at your best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although your partner may take this to an extreme that makes you feel uncomfortable. You may begin to question the sincerity and constancy of your partner over time.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationshipperhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner's mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environmentexactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner's approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo You are the worrywart in love, focusing on what will come of your relationship in the future. Your Venus in Leo lover, however, lives for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. You worry about the practical side of the partnership. Your partner expresses his | her love for you in a lavish, showy manner. He | she is consumed with the romance of your relationship, and might expect you to feel the same way. You easily feel threatened by your partner's apparent "experience", but do remember that your lover is given to brag a little, and he | she is trying to win your favorperhaps the wrong way! In his | her desire to be viewed as irresistible, your partner may inadvertently make you feel insecure. You express your love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. This doesn't sound exceptionally romantic to your starry-eyed lover, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and somebody has to do it [Venus in Leo would prefer not!]. Try not to feel intimidated by your partner, and enjoy his | her generous love nature. Your partner may be so lavish with praise that it seems insincere. It's not! Don't overanalyze it. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signsthey don't share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Virgo Both of you value the same things in love, which is a good starting point. Shared interests are important to you, but in this case, when two Venusian Virgos are together, it would make a little more sense [a word you both love!] to have different projects and interests. Why? Because you both tend to want to run the show when it comes to pet projects. In the love relationship in general, however, you are flexible and attentive. It may be difficult to choose a leader! There doesn't always have to be a leader in a relationship, of course, but the relationship might become a little bogged down in details. Ideally, you have some strong Water or Fire signs elsewhere in your chart, helping to infuse some energy and heart into an otherwise somewhat dry combination. You need to establish some far-reaching goals for the partnership, something that doesn't come too naturally for either of you, simply because you are too busy taking care of the business at hand. You can be somewhat nervous in love, and your partner is inclined in this direction as well. Be careful not to pick each other apart, and enjoy the fantastic conversations you will inevitably share.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venusian Air [Libra] and Earth [Virgo] temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. You are certainly a thinker, but your partner is more given to sharing flights of fancy while your ideas are more conservative and practical. Your partner might find you too skeptical in matters of the heart; at the same time, you might consider your partner to be too idealistic. Your Venus in Libra lover has a somewhat detached manner, and you might interpret the "airs" that he | she puts on [read charm!] as a lack of sincerity. Loyalty is of utmost importance to you, and your lover is certainly capable of giving a lot to the partnership. In fact, he | she lives for partnership! But your partner's detached manner might make you feel somewhat insecure and threatened. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other's different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio Trust doesn't come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. Your partner is passionate and intenseperhaps even provocative. If he | she senses passion and commitment is missing or waning, your lover may go to any means [often subtle] to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because your partner can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. You are usually receptive to your partner's wishes and needs, and you tend to bend your ways accordingly. You work hard at making your relationship worksomething that your partner senses and appreciates. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth [you] and Water [your partner]. When you understand each other's different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but you value practical expressions of commitment, while your partner values emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If your partner senses any emotional distance on your part, he | she may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, you only appear "distant" because you are busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. You may find your partner's silences frustrating, as you are always willing to talk about your relationship and don't always understand why your partner resorts to giving you the silent treatment! Your partner is skilled at knowing how to push your buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways he | she has discovered to get your attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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 timenothing insurmountable, of course! The common ground you share is a desire to learn through your relationship and a willingness to talk things over. Your partner values your keen insight and you can have some wonderful conversations. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover, especially, gets off on the sharing of ideas, and enjoys philosophizing. You are certainly the more practical partner in this pairing, and your partner may find you a bit of a stick in the mud at times. You may complain of his | her blind faith in the relationship, preferring that your partner live in the here and now. You value effort put into the relationship, and you can't help but see all of the "little things" that make up its whole. Your partner, on the other hand, prefers to think of your partnership in grander, larger terms. This can be very annoying for you! You will likely disagree on how to spend money as well. Your partner is not a save-for-a-rainy-day type of person by any stretch of the imagination [unless Saturn is aspecting his | her Venus]! Your lover needs space and at least the illusion of freedom. He | she is very threatened by any attempts to confine him | her. Needless to say, your partner will be much happier if there is a strong feeling of growth in your relationship. Making plans and defining goals may help, but attempting to control or cage your partner in will have unfavorable results.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little...well, dry...there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! Your partner cherishes some moments of solitude, and that is something that you will need to understand and respect. There is no reason to feel threatened with this behavior. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your partner's side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, so you will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one.


Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius Your partner gets off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. You, on the other hand, are most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! You believe your needs are simple, and in many ways they are. You respond best to practical displays of affection, and because your Venus is in an Earth sign, you value your partner's physical presence. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make you feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. Your partner values exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner's appreciation of you is paramount. Otherwise, you are prone to feeling like you have done something wrong. Your partner shows his or her love in different ways, and the independence your lover needs, if misunderstood, can lead you to worry far too much. Note that if you loosen up and be yourself, your lover will appreciate you all the more. Misunderstanding of each other's unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work.


How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces This is a case of "opposites attract", except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just that your partner, not an enemy. You will appreciate your lover's gentleness and sympathy, although you can find him or her somewhat evasive at times. This is because while you are happy to define love, your partner prefers to leave some things unspoken. Faith in love is something your Venus in Pisces partner can teach you, if you are open to it. You can help ground your partner, reminding him or her that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal.


.......
Synastry | Venus in Libra When your Venus is in Libra, you have an irresistibly pleasing romantic demeanor, no matter what you look like. The sign of Libra is intimately connected with partnerships, so you are particularly sensitive to the give-and-take associated with any kind of pairing that is one-on-one. You are a romantic, and will spend much of your attention and focus on relationships in your lifetime. You vibrate to the concept of harmony, and peace is your ultimate goal. However, along the road to that goal, you can certainly stir a pot or two! You are a pleaser, that is for certain. In fact, because you are so sensitive to the needs of others, you may be accused of adapting your manner or even your personality to "suit" the object of your affection! The truth is, you can easily lose your identity in partnership because of your natural ability to see things from your partner's point of view. Libra is the sign of balance, and in your attempts to keep the scales balanced, you may wear your partner down by a natural tendency to "keep scores". You should watch out that you don't give away power to your partner, and then resent your feeling of powerlessness. You view partnerships as fundamental to a fulfilled existence, and you work hard at supporting your partner's individuality. Togetherness is so extraordinarily important to you that your partner might find you quite dependent, and even clingy. In most cases, however, your deep need for togetherness makes you an exceptionally companionable person. You redefine the word "charming", and you are an expert at smoothing ruffled feathers. Compromise comes easy to you, and your ideal partner will appreciate your willingness to consider his or her needs and wants.


Venus in Libra | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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 partner's direct even aggressive approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your life, as you tend toward indecision. It's a stark contrast to your 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 challenging over time. You are a somewhat dependent creature, while your partner is much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because your partner doesn't have much patience to wait. If your Venus in Aries friend sees someone [or something] he or she likes, they'll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and he or she figures that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. You, on the other hand, notoriously take your time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, you value reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as you are when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active lover in the sense that he or she definitely needs a partner who will compromise, but you may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, your partner doesn't always listen to reason. 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.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take an intellectual approach to love [you think and talk a lot about your relationship], your partner is considerably more practical and earthy. All too often, Earth signs [including Taurus], interpret your intellectual approach to love as either disloyalty or lacking in sincerity. You can easily become frustrated with your lover's seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. Your partner is sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time you invest in your partnership, although he or she may eventually question whether your approach is actually getting results. You see, your lover is much more interested in what works in lovewhat he or she sees in tangible terms. What "could be", "would be", or "might be" doesn't pull much weight with your Venus in Taurus partner. With a natural inclination to see where your relationship needs adjustment, you are usually more than willing to compromisea trait that might be considered a necessity with your partner, who is not the most flexible of lovers. Your thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied Venus in Taurus partner. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounces and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You thrive on feedback from your partner, and your Venusian Gemini lover will certainly fulfill that need. There can be considerable respect between you. Your partner enjoys plenty of social and mental stimulationthe more variety, the betterand you do as well. However, your focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while your partner is not so specific in his or her needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may not be as romantic as you, and you might complain that he or she is a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with his or her wit. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. This relationship can contain markedly less of the sort of jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperation is easy between you. Both of you are flexible when it comes to love, and that fact can certainly help ease difficulties that arise.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. Your partner expresses his or her love in a distinctly personal manner, while you are more intellectually inclined. You are adept at honing in on what your partner needs and what makes your partner uncomfortableso much so that you might change your style completely in order to keep the peace. With this Venusian Cancer, you will quickly get to know that your partner is very sensitive. Although it is important to avoid hurting your lover's feelings, you don't want to compromise your personality completely in order to maintain harmony. If you do, personal communication between you can come to a halt, and neither of you will find much satisfaction in that kind of environment. Your partner is capable of putting up huge walls around himself or herself, and communication is utterly critical to your sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more you press your partner for the feedback you thrive on, the more your partner may withdraw. As charming as you are, you might be able to coax your partner out of his or her shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. You might never find such a caring and supportive partner elsewhere.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encountersand so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that you are entirely wrapped up in the "we" of your partnership, while your partner is more concerned about "me". Your partner is infatuated with the feelings that are most characteristic of the first stages of romance, and wants that passion to continue...indefinitely! While romance is certainly right up your alley, you have tremendous respect for the give and take of partnership. Your partner will truly appreciate your willingness to compromise and accommodate him or her. However, over time, you are bound to refer to your "mental log" and start tallying things up. Your love of equality and fairness always surfaces, and although you are generally very willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside you if your partner takes advantage of this willingness. Your resentment can eventually get the best of your partnership. You might find your partner a tad too intense at times. At the same time, your lover might complain that you are somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for his or her liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where you are always running after your somewhat hard to please partner, trying to make him or her happy. It can be all too easy for your desire to keep peace in your relationship to be taken advantage of. Your partner should recognize that you are likely to resent a partnership in which the "give and take" is not balanced.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venus in Air [Libra] and Earth [Virgo] temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. Your partner is definitely a thinker, but you are more given to sharing flights of fancy. Your more practical partner entertains and shares ideas that are more conservative and practical. It may seem to you that your partner is skeptical in matters of the heart, which can certainly irritate your sensibilities, simply because you have an idealistic and positive view of partnership. You can sometimes give off an air of detachment, and your charming manner might be interpreted by your partner as a lack of sincerity. Because loyalty is of utmost importance to your Venus in Virgo partner, your commitment to the partnership will be very much appreciated. You, in fact, live for partnership! You are very romantic and always put yourself in others' shoes. At times, however, your partner can feel insecure in the face of your sociable, people-oriented values. He or she wants to be your "number one", and needs to feel needed. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments and concessions in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other's different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Libra Pairing two Libras at best is pleasing and harmonious. At worst, it's a bit unbalanceda word [rather, a condition] that makes Libra uneasy. After all, Libras work so hard to balance their relationships and their environments. Both of you value feedback and communication in your relationships, and each of you is more than willing to give the other just these things! However, because both of you are rather ambivalent and indecisive, an endless loop may be the result when you get together. Your conversations will be very stimulating, no doubt, but will they go anywhere solid? Probably not. You two need to establish some goals in your relationship in order to escape the "endless loop". It can be very difficult to establish a leader in this partnership. Of course, a relationship doesn't necessarily need a leader, per se. However, both of you "get off" on cooperation, bending to your partner, and compromising. As such, you will likely find you share a lot of interests, but acting on these things might be a problem. You might have a difficult time curbing your expenses as well, simply because both of you have such refined tastes. Each of you have perfected the art of diplomacy within relationships, and you need to be careful that you truly confront problems as they arise instead of talking your way around them. Despite these apparent problems, you truly understand each other and have very similar partnership needs and expectations. Togetherness is of utmost value to both of you, and your similarities can be the foundation for a powerful bond.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! Your partner wants your soul, not just your presence. You, on the other hand, are most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your relationship needs, you work hard at finding common ground and adamantly believe in equality and all that is fair. Your partner, on the other hand, believes just as strongly that life isn't fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. Your lover is fascinated with your charm, and you are intrigued by your partner's intense love nature. Although Venus in Scorpio people are notorious for their mysteriousness, he or she considers you to be somewhat of a puzzle. You bring a lively, luminous energy to your relationshipsqualities that stand in stark contrast to your partner's intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teachand to offereach other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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 union, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. You may find your lover somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because he or she is freedom-loving. You are not one to try to confine a lover, but some adjustment in your thinking may be needed. Your partner is adventurous in love, and not as tactful as you can be. At times, he or she may run roughshod over your feelings, often with no intention to do so, but you are fully capable of understanding that your partner is simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to your "do it now" partner. 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, you are the master of being reasonable, which your partner will appreciate more than most.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committedonly in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. You concern yourself with equality in your relationships, and you busy yourself weighing the pros and cons from day to day. Your partner is also concerned about your relationship, only he or she is somewhat more reserved than you are when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to you, while practical expressions of love are important to your lover. Your partner will appreciate your commitment to him or her, deriving a sense of security from it. You will appreciate your partner's commitment as well, and you feel very at ease with him or her. Your partner exudes a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for you. Your willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for your partner to appreciate and acknowledge that quality in you. In turn, be sure you acknowledge your partner's stability in love, and appreciate the security you derive from his or her constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite these differences, and will go a long way towards compatibility.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues with the definition of your relationship, however. Whereas you value partnerships more than anything, your partner is more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. Your partner can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but you are more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. Your partner values peace and not only believes in equality, but treats people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to you. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through [and your partner's responsiveness in this department] can help smooth over rough edges.


Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because your love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your love planet [Venus] is an Air sign, while your partner's is a Water sign. While you approach relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, your partner instinctively responds to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by the world of thought and ideas in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by feelings. Your partner needs some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other's unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work.

Synastry | Venus in Scorpio When your Venus is in Scorpio, it's all or nothing in matters of the heart. You are capable of loving deeply, and you crave intimacy. Scorpio isn't afraid of anything, and when Venus, the planet of love, is found in this sign, love relationships are intense. Scorpio is also a sign that thrives on crisis in order for its natives to feel alive and vital, so when it comes to matters of the heart, you are not only unafraid of getting your hands dirty, you may easily find an overly predictable relationship uninteresting. Scorpios don't enjoy being referred to as jealous, but from time to time, jealousy and possessiveness become issues in your relationships. You have a strong desire to control your often turbulent passions, and you don't always let your partner exactly what is going on inside of you as a result. Others will be either strongly attracted to, or intimidated by, your obvious ability to give all to love, and your extraordinary passion. Your strong interest in love and romance can sometimes border on obsessive, and you need a partner who is willing to go the distance with you. Sexually, you are intense as well, but you definitely do not only want your partner's body you want his or her soul as well. Sex without intimacy is ultimately uninteresting to you. Be careful that your fear of betrayal doesn't become a self-fulfilling prophecy. When insecure about your partner's feelings about you, resorting to games of power and control might seem like a natural route for you, and may even get temporary desired "results", but can have disastrous consequences in the long run. Learning to let go a little and have faith in your partner can do wonders in any relationship. When you are at your best, you are unafraid of intimacy and can offer extraordinary passion to your relationships that is pretty much unmatched.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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. Your partner is direct while you can be more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido is rather constant, while your partner's fluctuates tremendously. Your partner lives for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but you have 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 termthe 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.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnershipsor each othereasily. You tend to be more intense about your attachments than your partner is, and your partner's overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other's strong personality and willingness to commit. You sense in your partner the ability to "go the distance", and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to you both, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. Your partner may find you overly complex, while you might consider your partner's needs too simple! Your partner's desire in love is for peace and stability, while you thrive on boat-rocking from time to time. You tend to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your partner's goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers [albeit in completely different ways!], and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. Your partner is a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that he or she flirts with everyone, but he or she does infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into their relationship. Your love nature is intense, and you crave intimacy. When intimacy is threatened, you can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which you attempt to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio you are. You are astute and perceptive, and can easily learn how to push your partner's buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. You want your partner's soul, not just their body! Your partner, however, has an entirely different view of partnership. He or she wants it to be fun, while you will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similarand familiarvein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel "at home". Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your partner's warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to you, and your partner senses your all-encompassing love that will hold special appeal to your loving partner. At times, the love you offer can feel all-consuming, but this doesn't scare your partner like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love your partner gives is rather similar, and you don't fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, you live for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your partner's memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your partner's reaction to hurts is often internalized, while you can grow cold and unresponsive when you feel slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may become a big issue between you. You quickly "feel out" your emotions-on-the-sleeves partner and learns his or her boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water [Scorpio] has the power to put out Fire [Leo]. What happens is your partner's natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might seem threatening or disconcerting to you, and you might find it easy to pull your partner down, or "rain on his or her parade". Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When you withhold sex, generally because you are feeling unloved or unappreciated, your partner takes it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. Your partner is sure to appreciate your emotional commitment to the relationship, and you will respect your partner's strength, as you are attracted to intensityeven crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo Trust doesn't come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. You are passionate and intenseperhaps even provocative at times. If you sense passion and commitment is missing or waning, you may go to any means [often subtle] to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because you can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. Your partner is usually receptive to a partner's wishes and needs, and he or she tends to bend their ways accordingly. Your lover works hard at making relationships worksomething that you sense and appreciate. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth [your partner] and Water [you]. When you understand each other's different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but your partner values practical expressions of commitment, while you value emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If you sense any emotional distance on your lover's part, you may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, your partner only appears "distant" because he or she is busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. Your lover may find your silences frustrating, because he or she is always willing to talk about the relationship and doesn't always understand why you resort to giving him or her the silent treatment! You can be skilled at knowing how to push your partner's buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways you have discovered to get your partner's attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! You want your lover's soul, not just his or her presence. Your lover, on the other hand, is most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your partner's relationship needs, he or she works hard at finding common ground and adamantly believes in equality and all that is fair. You, on the other hand, believe just as strongly that life isn't fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. You can be fascinated with your partner's charm, and your lover is intrigued by your intense love nature. Although you are notorious for your mysteriousness, you can actually consider your Venus in Libra partner to be somewhat of a puzzle! You may find your lover to be emotionally distant and overly focused on superficial togetherness at the expense of intimacy. Your partner brings a lively, luminous energy to his or her relationshipsqualities that stand in stark contrast, at times, to your intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teachand to offereach other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Scorpio Your similarities in approach to love can either strengthen your relationship or make you wary of each other! Often, it is a combination of both. Both of you are intense lovers, wanting emotional involvement more than anything from a relationship. You will certainly get it from each other, but Scorpio, perhaps more than most signs, needs a partner to complement, with enough differences to keep things interesting. Not that this relationship will be boringthat could never happen with either of you! Neither of you is comfortable with a partnership that is completely comfortable or predictable. Your relationship will never get to that point. The only red flag here is that each of you needs someone to soften your sharp edges, and your relationship may be even too much of an emotional rollercoaster for either of your liking! If both of you are at an emotionally healthy point in your lives, and with understanding, you can certainly forge out a strong commitment. Passions will be strong, although stand-offs may be frequent and almost unbearable. If you make the time to appreciate each other, there will be considerable mutual respect and common goals in this relationship.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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. You approach love relationships with intensity. Your partner is intense in a different way. He or she is a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to your partner. He or she does not always come across as constant with affections, and this fact can be frustrating to you. You can be somewhat possessive in love, but your partner chokes when he or she feels caged in. You may find your partner somewhat flighty and inconstant, and he or she may be bewildered by your greater than average need for intimacy. Still, you will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that your partner breathes into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! Your partner will consider you astute and will appreciate your depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time.


How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn The passion your partner senses in you is, of course, real, and this thought excites your mate. Although other lovers may find your partner a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, you have a way of making him or her feel extraordinary. Because your partner both fears and craves intimacy, you are probably one of the most ideal people to get to him or her. Your partner finds you exciting and deeply intriguing, and you are sure to find him or her equally fascinatingeven a challenge. You will thoroughly appreciate your partner's dedication to a relationship, probably more than most, and it is when he or she feels appreciated that your partner is at his or her romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone "weak" for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what your partner appreciates most about you is your ability to see past his or her defenses. While others may be intimidated by your partner's often cool and even aloof exterior, you know there is a lot more to your lover. Fortunately for you, you will get to experience all that is inside your Venus in Capricorn lover, and it is unlikely you will be disappointed.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner's love nature, and your partner with your nature. Your nature is intense and personal, and very passionate. While your partner is able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, you have a much more difficult time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for you to "get" why your lover is capable of detaching him or herself from emotional circumstances, and you may even find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. Your partner can be quite baffled by your passionate reactions, as he or she tends to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. Your lover values objectivity, and prides himself or herself on an ability to reason things through. Your partner may be inclined to react to your more emotionally intense moments by giving you space. This is likely to frustrate you even more, as you interpret your partner's "stepping aside" as walking awayor, even worse, lack of concern for you and the relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other's strength of character.


Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding of each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can promote an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionallyyou don't use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Pisces partner. You are more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than your partner is, however. Your partner loves deeply and with his or her heart, but you might wonder just how exclusive those feelings are towards you. You want to get under your lover's skin, and you are not always thrilled to share your partner with the rest of the world. So, when your partner is expressing his or her compassion for pretty much everyone that comes around the corner, you may feel a tad threatened. You need to understand and accept your partner's love of mankind in general. You might worry that your lover strays too easilyand it's not about him or her having an affair. It's more a concern that your partner is too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when he or she has you? That's the kind of attitude you might hold, and this could be your relationship's biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. Your partner is more than likely to appreciate your intensity and depth of feeling.

Synastry | Venus in Sagittarius When your Venus is 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 exaggerationnot 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 | How You Relate 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 stimulatingeven invigoratingpairing. 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 thata 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 nosenamely, 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 timenothing 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 discussionssomething 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!


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 twonot 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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.


Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate 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 otherand that is a lot!

Synastry | Venus in Capricorn When your Venus is in Capricorn, you are generally steadfast and deliberate in love, finding safety and comfort in all that is tried and true. You can be on the cautious side about sharing your heart, but your reliability as a partner is hard to resist for many people. You act respectfully in love, and take extra care not to hurt a partner. For that matter, you take extra care not to get hurt yourself! This self-protective quality can sometimes frustrate your partner, simply because you are not very comfortable with letting yourself go on a romantic level. Once your defenses are down [at least some of them], you are a warm, tender, and even vulnerable lover. Things are at their best in your relationships when your partner understands that you show your emotions and care through actions rather than words. What appears to be a certain coolness, aloofness, or even snobbishness actually hides a fair amount of vulnerability and warmth. When you feel safe and comfortable with someone, you are far more demonstrative. Yours is a strong sensuality. You attract others with a quiet charm that fairly reeks with competence. There is a controlled manner about you when it comes to love, and potential partners can sense it. It can drive them wild if they are so inclined! You are attracted to a partner who is responsible and respectable. Someone who is passionate may at once scare you and appeal to you, and these conflicting emotions and reactions can lead to quite a powerful attraction. Perhaps a passionate person is exactly what you need to loosen up a little. You have much to offer others, and your dependability is sure to be appreciated in the long haul. For those who are up to the challenge, discovering the earthy sensuality and vulnerability inside you will be a tremendous reward. They will have to win your trust, and a little persistence will certainly help.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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 relationship needs are decidedly more practical and earthy than those of your partner. In matters of the heart, your lover acts first and thinks later. You, on the other hand, consider 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 your partner, as he or she tends to think in the here and now, while you take into consideration the future of your relationship. If you share your finances with your Venus in Aries lover, you are in the position to help curb your partner's habit for impulsive spending, and whether or not your lover appreciates that depends entirely on him or her! Your partner might complain that you are a little too serious at times, but hopefully you will enjoy the fact that your partner is remarkably capable of infusing relationships with fun and activity. Because your partner is more forthright in love than you are, it is likely his or her responsibilty for getting this relationship going, but if your partner thinks they can always be the leader, they might have another thing coming! Certainly, you are definitely more cautious with your heart, but you also have a reserve of strength that is mighty indeed. Your partner might consider you to be somewhat of a challenge, but challenges in love are generally considered exciting for Venus in Aries. Some clashes are inevitable, but with understanding and love, this relationship can work.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other's interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart [and the bank account] can do wonders for any partnership. You are more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and may sometimes find your partner a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to you both. Each of you has a way of attracting the good things in life, and your partnership is sure to be characterized with healthy abundance.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. Your partner has a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than you do. You are likely to appreciate the fact that your partner can help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity, although you may not feel as safe with this person than you do with some others. Your concern with commitment, and tendency to plan for the future may be a bit foreign to your more happy-go-lucky lover. You are sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. You like your solitude, and your partner likes his or her space. If your lover can avoid feeling threatened by your need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of his or her many and varied interests, this partnership can work well. You are more able to handle your lover's quips and teasing than others, although you might complain that his or her head is in the clouds. Your feet are definitely on the ground, but you don't shy away from ambition and progress either! Despite this, if your partner is the more flighty of Venus in Gemini people, he or she might even find you downright boring. This isn't to say you are boring, but your partner does favor a livelier, more active partner than you may express. In difficult pairings, you might be inclined to think your partner is about as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa!


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer Opposites attract, and you and your partner's Venus [love] signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your partner's approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while you tend to be more practically inclined. You prefer to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of "feeling each other out", and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each otheryou in a practical sense and your partner in a nurturing way. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other's differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your "lists" in the relationship department!


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo Your partner is insatiably expressive in love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. You possess a more steady, practical view of relationships. Dramatizing feelings is as natural as breathing to your partner [he doesn't just like something, he adores it; he isn't simply hurt by what you say, he is devastated, etc.]. You, on the other hand, are more reserved about your feelings and desires, as you are cautious about letting another person into your heart. In fact, you may at times find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. You may question the sincerity behind your partner's demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Your partner needs to be reminded that the constancy of your feelings are very valuable. You are certainly more concerned about where your relationship is headed. Your partner, on the other hand, is living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, you believe in moderation, and your partner is inclined to go overboard in both areas. Remember that your partner's ego is tied up in how you treat him or her, and there is the risk that your partner's apparent over-confidence will prompt you to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, your partner is likely to lose interest fast. You need to understand that your partner is far more insecure in love than he or she lets on. You value solitude from time to time, and your occasional withdrawal is sure to fire your partner up. Your partner's head is often in the clouds when it comes to love, and his or her vision of the future is generally positive, while you are largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. You might enjoy your lover's ability to brighten up your day, and your partner will love your extraordinary sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little...well, dry...there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! You cherish some moments of solitude, and that is something that your partner will need to understand and respect. There is no reason for him or her to feel threatened with this behavior, although it might just come down to that when you don't yet know each other well. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, although you are more concerned about keeping it to a minimum so as to preserve the relationship's integrity. Both of you, and perhaps especially your partner, will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committedonly in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. Your partner is most concerned with equality in relationships, and is often busy weighing the pros and cons from day to day. You are also concerned about your relationship, only you are somewhat more reserved when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to your partner, while practical expressions of love are important to you. You will appreciate your partner's commitment to you, deriving a sense of security from it. Your partner should appreciate your commitment as well, and is likely to feel very at ease with you. You exude a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for your partner! The attraction between the two of you is likely to be high. Your partner's willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for you to both appreciate and acknowledge that quality in your lover. In turn, your partner should acknowledge your stability in love, and appreciate the security he or she derives from this constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite this, and will go a long way towards compatibility.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio The passion you sense in your Venus in Scorpio mate is real, and this thought excites you. Although other lovers may find you a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, your Venus in Scorpio lover has a way of making you feel extraordinary. Because you both fear and crave intimacy, your partner is probably one of the most ideal people to get to you. You are intrigued, and your partner is sure to find you equally fascinatingeven a challenge. Your dedication to a relationship will be appreciated by your partner, probably more than most, and it is when you feel appreciated that you are at your romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone "weak" for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what you appreciate most from your Venus in Scorpio partner is his or her ability to see past your defenses. While others may be intimidated by your often cool and even aloof exterior, your partner knows there is a lot more to you.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius Your love natures and needs are quite different, which can set you up for both challenges and growth opportunities. Your partner throws him or herself whole-heartedly into the love of the moment, without much interest in long-term relationship planning. You, on the contrary, are considerably more cautious about starting a relationship, but once you make a commitment, it is a lasting and serious one. The potential clash here is the direction of the partnership. You want to garner some sort of security from plans for your relationship, while your partner is hell-bent on "winging it". Your partner attracts others with a friendly, optimistic personality, and you exude a certain quiet, cautious charm when it comes to love. Chances are that your partner is the more outgoing of the twonot necessarily in a general personality sense, but in terms of the kindling of your romantic relationship. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover's spiritedness was likely a big turn-on for you, at least at the outset. As things move forward, however, you might, if you are not careful, tend to pick at that very optimism, perhaps due to your own fears of being insecure in partnership. Your partner might complain that you take things too seriously, and wish for more "oomph" and adventurousness. Nevertheless, with understanding, you have much to offer each other. Allow your partner to loosen you up, as he or she offers a freshness and encouragement that is hard to find elsewhere, while you can most certainly help your partner to see the value of planning ahead and treating others with respect and concern.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in CapricornSimilar goals and similar needs in love provide a healthy and solid foundation for your partnership. No matter how different you are on other levels, the fact that your relationship needs are comparable can help smooth out your pairing. If you share finances, having both of your Venus signs in Capricorn can certainly help you see eye-to-eye on how you spend and save money. Both of you are able to save for a rainy day, and you appreciate that your partner is just as responsible in this respect as you are. Each of you can be a little shy or standoffish at first when it comes to getting to know each other intimately, so this relationship may take a bit of time to get off the ground, but once together, the mutual respect between you will certainly take you places. Of course, whenever we are combining two of the same signs, there is a risk of getting into a rut, but if you have enough differences in other areas of life, stimulation shouldn't be too much of a problem. You can rely on one another, and that is sure to feel good.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner's Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person you love. Your partner's aloofness, on the other hand, isn't hiding anything! Your partner is genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and is less interested in committing to one special person. Your partner enjoys making friends and sharing social activities with his or her mate. You are usually content to spend more private time with your partner than spreading yourselves around in a social sense. You are a little more possessive of your partner as well. Certainly, your partner will give you plenty of space to be yourself, and that is a true gift. However, you might be looking for something more substantial. Your partner has a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. His or her ability to reason is something you might appreciate, as long as you don't slip into the feeling of being threatened by that ability to detach. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire.


Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces Your Venus in Pisces partner is likely very drawn to your aura of strength and conviction. You exude an air that you "have it together", and this is very attractive to your partner, as he or she is not as regimented in his or her feelings for others. You, in turn, are likely to be intrigued with your lover's kind and hospitable nature. He or she actually listens to what you have to say, and understands it! Your partner's willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to you, as you are more disciplined and definite in what you want from a partnership. If the both of you can accept and appreciate each other's differences in expressing love, this can be a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. Your lover might find you too rigid in your expectations from the partnership, and you might easily find your partner's dreamy love nature too ethereal. However, this combination is a mix of Water [Pisces] and Earth [Capricorn], which can be very fertile. Your Pisces partner will be more able than most people to tap into your heart, uncovering the warmth underneath your somewhat cool exterior. You will appreciate your partner's adaptability and acceptance of your commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well.

Aquarius Synastry | Venus in Aquarius When your Venus is in Aquarius, you don't want to follow all the "rules" in love, preferring to love in your own way, unfettered by convention or what is "supposed" to be, or usually, done. You are future-minded, a tad unconventional [in love, anyhow] and there's an unmistakable "free spirit" in you that shows up most obviously in matters of the heart. This is not to say you cannotor will notfall in love. Infatuations happen easily, but true love can be a little elusive for you. When you do make a commitment, you are generally able to stick to it. The commitment you make generally has to be a little different in order to be tolerable to you, and you are proud of that difference. Following the beaten track simply doesn't sit well with you. You have an aloof air about you that others find attractive. If they are looking for a commitment from you at a later date, however, what was once considered charismatic might become annoying! It is easy for you to feel claustrophobic in relationships that are too close, too needy, or too demanding of your time. If you have the space to breathe a little, all the better. This is when you are at your best. You are a curious person and enjoy intellectual stimulation in your relationships. Although you are not someone who would be considered flighty, you do not tolerate stagnation very well. You need to feel like your relationship is heading somewhere. Your ability to detach yourself from a situation, take a step back, and look at it from a unique perspective is a tremendous strength. As willing as you are to stir things up if you are in the mood to enforce change, there is a wonderful calm surrounding you that can be most appealing to others. You are ahead of your time in matters of the heart, and you will be best off finding a partner who values your insight.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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 general theme when you are together. You are somewhat unpredictable when it comes to expressions of love, and your partner is more likely to appreciate this "quirkiness" than most Venusian signs, simply because he or she enjoys challenges and the feeling that a relationship is "alive". Furthermore, your unconventionality can be quite attractive to your Venus in Aries partner. While others might complain that you are a little too aloof, your lover is more apt to see that trait as a challengeand rise to it! The only difficulty with all of this is that your partner's desires in love are quite variable, and when they're turned on, he or she wants love and wants it right now. If you happen to be off on a tangent, seemingly in another world, your partner can quickly become impatient. However, both of you will give the other enough space to breathe, probably because you each need some independence. With your Venus signs in a sextile with one another, you are likely to appreciate and respect each other, off-moods aside.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! Your partner is more traditional than you are in his or her view of partnerships. Your lover values constancy and dependability in his or her relationships. On the other hand, you resist doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new path rather than traveling along the " beaten track". Your partner wants his or her love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. You know how to stick with things, as does your partner, and you aren't especially attracted to complications as well. However, you don't find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Your partner, on the other hand, seems to be quite content as long as his or her basic needs are met, and sometimes can even seem complacent. Ideally, the two of you will find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your quirkiness can be fun and even electric. Your lover can remind you how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You, more than most people, understand your lover's tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but you appreciate his or her changeability, seeing it as really quite natural. However, you are more stubborn than your partner. Your partner's moods change quickly, and while you can hardly be labeled predictable, you are not as flexible as your partner is. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, your partner is most inclined to be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterize your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while your lover works on keeping things fresh, you will help steady your partner. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. Your partner craves a relationship that is very personal and committed, while you are more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination with the differences between you. There's a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a direct and offbeat sort of charm, while your partner's charm is softer and more intimate. Your partner might find your behavior unsettling at times, simply because he or she is looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. You are a freedom-lover, and your love may seem universal and impersonalthe style doesn't hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that your partner craves. Your partner's tendency to wrap himself or herself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating to you, but can cause a problem if you begin to interpret it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other's needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this union moving in healthy directions.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo This is the case of "opposites attract". Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite signs of the zodiac, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! In astrology, opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Aquarius, are most concerned with the greater group process, while Leo places great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self. You express your feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate your partner. Your partner has a fight or flight reactioneither he or she sees this as a challenge or runs in the opposite direction! You are largely objective, while your partner is subjective. Both of you like to be special and "different", but your partner wants to be special, where "special" means "the best" in a lover's eyes. You want to be valued for your uniqueness in terms of the group. Your partner is personal, involved, and intense in his or her romantic dealings; you are more impersonal and rather detached, able to see the bigger picture. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this "shadow" personality in the other.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo You get off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. Your partner, on the other hand, is most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! Your partner believes his or her needs are simple, and in many ways they are, although you might consider these needs unnecessarily complicated. Your lover responds best to practical displays of affection, and because his or her Venus is in an Earth sign, your partner most values your physical presence and attention. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make your lover feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. You value exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner's need for appreciation is paramount. Otherwise, your lover is prone to feeling like he or she has done something wrong. You reveal your love in different ways, and the independence you need, if misunderstood, can lead to a fair share of worrying on your lover's part. Make sure your partner knows that if he or she feels comfortable enough to loosen up and be himself or herself, you will appreciate him or her all the more. Misunderstanding of each other's unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues surrounding the definition of your relationship. Whereas your partner values partnerships more than anything, you are more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. You can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but your partner is more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. You value peace and not only believe in equality, you treat people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to your partner. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through [and your partner's responsiveness in this department] can help smooth over rough edges.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner's love nature. It's intense and personal, and very passionate. While you are able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, your partner has the hardest time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for your partner to "get" why you are capable of detaching yourself, and he or she may find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. You may be quite baffled by your partner's passionate reactions to you, as you tend to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. You value objectivity and pride yourself on your ability to reason things through. You may be inclined to react to your partner's more emotionally intense moments by giving him or her space. This is likely to frustrate your partner more, as he or she interprets your "stepping aside" as walking awayor, even worse, lack of concern for your relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other's strength of character.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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 partner's approach to love, however, may be a little more impulsive and emotional than yours, as you tend to be much more calm and less excitable. When your partner gets excited about something, forging ahead with gusto, your collected demeanor may feel a bit like rain on his or her parade. If your partner remembers and accepts that he or she tends to be more expressive than you, and that his or her reactions to most things are immediate and emotionally-charged, things will run more smoothly between the two of you. You are more apt to analyze a situation before letting yourself 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.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner's Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs generally have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue between the two of you. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your partner's manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person he or she loves. Your aloofness, on the other hand, isn't hiding much of anything! You are genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and commitment is not your primary goal. You enjoy making friends and sharing social activities with your mate, while your partner is usually content to spend more private time with you than spreading themselves around in a social sense. Your partner tends to be more possessive of his or her partner as well. Certainly, you will give your partner plenty of space to be him or herself, and that is a true gift. However, your partner might be looking for something more substantial. You have a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. Your ability to reason is something most people appreciate, as long as they aren't threatened by that ability to detach yourself. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire.


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Aquarius No matter how different your personalities are, you share similar ideas and styles when it comes to relationships. Both of you value a partnership in which there is mental and social interaction. You are not impressed with relationships that are overly traditional or restrictive. As such, you are likely to give each other quite a bit of freedom. Whenever two people with the same Venus signs come together, the strengths lie in seeing eye to eye, and weaknesses stem from a lack of balance. In the case of Aquarius, intimacy may be wanting, as both of you are naturally inclined to live partnerships in the world of intellect. In the absence of a partner who works on creating emotional bonding and intimacy, you two may re-define partnership altogether. This could suit both of you just fine. Your union could be markedly free and different, perhaps considered unusual by some from the outside looking in. As both of you can be rather stubborn in love, there can be an imbalance. Even though you are both inclined to give the other freedom of movement and expression, neither of you is especially adaptable in terms of habits and mindsets. Although you are creative individuals, your interactions may eventually lack spunk or seem a little dry. As long as you both work on the intimate side of partnership, you will find that your relationship is progressive and excitingand decidedly unique!


Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. You love to brainstorm with your partner, and in Venus in Pisces, you have found a completely fascinating brain to "pick". At times, however, your partner might try to back off from the microscope, as he or she is certainly more sensitive and moody than you are when it comes to relationships. He or she will gladly go along with your wonderful visions and ideals, but your partner looks for a connection that runs very deep. Although he or she will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoys your enthusiasm and your visions, your partner values tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. You might find your partner a tad too sensitive. If you are receptive, your partner is more likely than most to be able to infuse your creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take you places. You can help your partner tap into his or her own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship.

Pisces Synastry | Venus in Pisces When your Venus is in Pisces, you love tenderly and compassionately. You are a peace-maker at heart, and your sensors are so strong that you pick up as much as possible, and perhaps more, from your partner. You have a sense of humor in love, although you have your shares of ups and downs, as you are a very sensitive person. Harshness bothers you. Wistfulness is almost as natural to you as breathing when it comes to love. No matter how you approach other areas of your life, there is a romantic side of you. You crave making a connection with a personmany would call it a deep connection, but spiritual is a better word, as your ideal love rises above rather than plunges below the mundane world. You can be devastatingly attractive to some people, and your charm is of a tender and soft quality. Others sense your warmth, but also some elusiveness. As much as you want to connect and share with another person, you also resist being pinned down. You prefer to enjoy a certain amount of freedom to act on your feelings, rather than through schedules or impositions. Sometimes you attach yourself to people because you have a hard time saying "no". However, you also have a hard time pretending for any length of time. Your exit from a relationship may not always be direct and quick. You are not always comfortable with being direct, simply because you don't like hurting people's feelings. You can sometimes seem like a chameleon in your relationships. People who share time with you, if they were to exchange notes about you, would likely have a very different impression of you. You can seem like a completely different person with different people not because you have a weak character. Because you are an emotional sponge, you pick up the needs of those around you. Your adaptability comes from a lack of personal boundaries in matters of the heart. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and it carries with it each and every sign. This explains, to a degree, your ability to slip into anyone's shoes without so much as a blink. So, with Venus, the planet of love and relationship, in Pisces, it is easy for you to pick up the needs of your partner and even adopt those needs as your own. Where do your needs start and end? It can be hard for you to distinguish what it is that you want because you very spontaneously and naturally soak in the needs and wants of a partner. You have an amazing capacity to understand people and to forgive. Just as you resist being pinned down to an absolute, a schedule, or a concrete definition, you also have a hard time drawing boundaries. In the process, however, you open yourself up to challenging situations and relationships. It is difficult for you to pass judgment on anyone in an absolute sense, as you have compassion for human failings, but sometimes it is the only way to close yourself off from a bad situation. Don't let others take advantage of your hospitality and empathy. Anyone who sees these traits as signs of weakness is likely preying on them! The right lover for you will recognize your kindness and your willingness to slip into someone's shoes as signs of strength! When that special someone has touched your heart, they are rewarded with a funny, sometimes kooky, and always tender-hearted lover. The right person for you will find you absolutely delightful, intriguingly changeable, and a treasure indeed.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries 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. Your partner is more than likely the one to take the lead in this relationship. You can be somewhat shy and unsure with someone new, but very charming indeed. You possess a dreamy quality that can be very enticing to your Venus in Aries partner. But this very quality that hooks his or her interest in you in the first place, might get your partner impatient once the novelty fades away! Your elusiveness and downright evasiveness at times stands in stark contrast to your partner's style of expressing loveso much so that it could seem completely alien to you both. Your lover is direct and forthright in love, and usually appreciates the same in others. You don't come across in quite so clear terms, and this can confuse your partner. 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 enjoy understatement in romance, and your partner should understand and respect this quality. His or her bluntness may be appreciated by less sensitive souls, but you may sometimes be put off by a manner that seems far too brusque than necessary. In turn, you should learn to appreciate knowing exactly where you stand with your partner! It might bite sometimes, but it's honest. You have much to offer each other once you get past the matter of differing love "styles".


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. Your partner is strong and dependable in relationshipsperhaps exactly what you need, at least most of the time! You don't always feel strong, simply because you are a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as your Venus in Taurus lover will help ground you. You are certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships, and you may view your lover's dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on your mood. Sometimes, you might find your lover too be a bit too set in his or her ways. Other times, you will appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your lover's needs in partnership. You can lean on your partner when you feel the need, and that is comforting indeed. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. Your partner might sometimes complain that you are indecisive or too changeablemoody, perhaps. But if he or she recognizes that your tenderness [something that your lover is sure to value] is an absolute constant, your partner is sure to "overlook" your seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your partner's desire for communication is strong, and you, too, want to connect with a partner. However, your lover places more value on mental stimulation while you value the power of understatement in romance. While your partner delights in having everything defined, you have a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. You rely on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering you for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get your lover very farperhaps only frustrated! Your partner's energy sometimes leaves you unsettled, while your elusiveness can be difficult for him or her to understand. Your partner's playfulness may, at times, unnerve you, as you can be somewhat sensitive, although quite forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairingboth of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. Your partner wants to take care of the people he or she loves, offering them security along with love, and you are particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is the following fundamental difference between your love natures your partner is more clannish, specific, and personal in his or her affections, while you incline toward universal love. The sensitivity you express doesn't always make your lover feel special, as he or she sometimes may feel that you are in love with mankind in general, not just him or her! You may find that your partner tries to redirect your love into more focused channels. You may easily fall for the underdog, and your partner may feel that you are in need of a little directing in this respect. Your partner is also attracted to the needy, but he or she has met, in you, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and he or she may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that leaves him or her feeling a little disconcerted! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It's an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. Your Venus in Leo partner is very direct and generous with his or her affections. You are probably just as generous, but your manner of expressing love is markedly different than that of your partner! The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing [Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn't come easily to them]. Both of you are incurable romantics. Your partner's style, however, is personal, while your loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but "universal" may be the best term for your love nature. Your partner appreciates your warmth, but there is something about your approach, which is somewhat indirect and evasive, that seems a little threatening to your partner's ego. To your lover, you seem to be so warm and affectionate, but they can't help but sense that you love everyone that way, not just him or her. Your partner, more than anything, needs to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin you down and get that specific attention that he or she craves [or demands!]. You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. Your partner is likely to be quite flattered by your sentimentality and dependency. However, when your lover is unhappy with you, he or she can easily become theatrical. You may even interpret your lover's dramas as abusive, which can shock your partner because your lover considers his or her displays as honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. You are very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your partner's emotions in a flash. Your partner prefers you to be direct and to the point with your wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo This is a case of "opposites attract", except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just thatyour partner, not an enemy. Your partner will appreciate your gentleness and sympathy, although he or she is apt to find you somewhat evasive at times. This is because while your partner is happy to define love, you prefer to leave some things unspoken. [You find it more romantic that way]. Faith in love is something you can teach your Venus in Virgo partner, if he or she is open to it. Your partner can help ground you, reminding you that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because the love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your partner's love planet [Venus] is an Air sign, while yours is a Water sign. While your partner approaches relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, you instinctively respond to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by feelings in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by thought. You need some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your partner's first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other's unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding for each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can be an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionallyyou don't use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Scorpio partner. Your partner is more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than you are. You love deeply and with your heart, but your partner might wonder just how exclusive your feelings are towards him or her. Your lover wants to get under your skin, and is not always thrilled to share you with the rest of the world, so when you are expressing your compassion for pretty much everyone that comes into your world, he or she may feel a tad threatened. Your partner needs to understand your love of mankind in general. He or she might worry that you stray too easilyand it's not about you having an affair. It's more a concern that you are too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when you have him or her? That's the kind of attitude you might expect from your partner, and this is probably your relationship's biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. You will appreciate your partner's intensity and depth of feeling.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius 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 your partner is generally very direct about his or her needs in love, you don't always know what your needs are! And, if you do, they can be hard to define. You are compassionate and intuitive, and need to "feel right" about issues in and surrounding love. Your partner's emotions in love move much more quickly, and he or she may at times be impatient with his or her partner as a result. Your feelings in love are easily hurt, but your lover can have an attitude that truth and directness is the only way to go, and as a result, he or she may want you 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 otherand that is a lot!


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn You might be very drawn to your Venus in Capricorn partner's aura of strength and conviction. Your partner exudes an air that he or she "has it together", and this is very attractive to you, as you are not regimented in your feelings for others. Your partner, in turn, is likely to be intrigued with your kind and hospitable nature. You actually listen to what he or she has to say, and your willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to your more disciplined partner. If the both of you can appreciate each other's differences in expressing love, this union can amount to a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. You might find your partner too rigid in his or her expectations from your partnership, and your lover might easily find your dreamy love nature too ethereal. This combination is a mix of Water [Pisces] and Earth [Capricorn], which can be very fertile. You will be more able than most people to tap into Capricorn's heart, seeing the warmth underneath the somewhat cool exterior. Your partner will appreciate your adaptability and your acceptance of his or her commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. Your partner loves to brainstorm with a close friend and lover, and in you, he or she has found a completely fascinating brain to "pick". At times, however, you might pull yourself from under the microscope, as you are certainly more sensitive and moody than your partner is when it comes to relationships. You will gladly go along with your lover's wonderful visions and ideals, but you look for a connection that runs very deep. Although you will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoy your partner's enthusiasm and vision, you value tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. Your partner might find you to be a tad too sensitive. You are more likely than most to be able to infuse your partner's creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take him or her places. Your lover, in turn, can help you tap into your own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship.


Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Pisces This is such a dreamy combination! You share Venus signs in the compassionate and tender sign of Pisces. No matter how different your personalities are, this Venus connection suggests similar needs from, and views of, partnership. Both of you are willing to adapt to the person you love, and offer each other tender affection. Both the strengths and the challenges lie in this underlying similarity. Each of you tends to need a partner who will do a little "directing" and "defining" in the relationship. Where are the boundaries? This is probably the main problem you will have with each other. You are both intuitive and not particularly practical when it comes to who, where, what, when, and how in love. You both thrive on a spiritual connection with your partner. You are likely to find it in each other, but you should also be mindful of some practicalities and realities in your partnership, or you may not be heading anywhere at all! However, this is a dreamy, romantic, and sweet union of two like-minded individuals. Ideally, elsewhere in your chart comparison, there are more stimulating and grounding connections between the two of you.





Venus | Sun aspects These are helpful aspects in any relationship. They create a sense of harmony and offer some common interests to the partnership. The Sun person feels more loving and beautiful in the presence of the Venus person. The Venus person finds the Sun person quite charming and intriguing. There is a mutual attraction here that, on its own, is not as insistent or sexual as other indicators [such as VenusMars or VenusPluto]. Perhaps the most apt keyword for this combination is contentment. The more difficult aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] can point to some problems and discord. The value system of the Venus native in this case is at odds with the Sun native's general outlook and life path. Each person tends to overindulge the other at times, and frustrate one another the next day. Read more details about VenusSun aspects in synastry.


Venus | Moon aspects These aspects smooth out many of the more difficult aspects in a relationship. Although these relationships are not immune to ups and downs and disagreements, the presence of this aspect in synastry creates an overall sense of harmony and compatibility. The attraction here has less to do with sexuality than it does with familiarity. These people have a strong need to set up house together and spend as much time with each other as possible. It is an aspect that almost demands physical presence these people feel the need to be around each other, even if they are not interacting. They enjoy each other's company, and there is often a fair share of tenderness and care between one another. When challenging, the Moon person may at times find the Venus person a little too playful at the expense of his or her own feelings. The Venus person may be tempted to turn on the charm when the Moon person is having problems instead of sincerely confronting and resolving problems. Glossedover problems can undermine the integrity of the relationship and of the emotional commitment.


Venus | Mercury aspects These interaspects are helpful for creating some common interests between the individuals. These people may enjoy happy exchanges and pleasurable, shared activities. Generally, there is a lot of "talk" in the relationship. Hard aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] point to misunderstandings that disrupt the flow of the relationship. There can be complaints that each person talks a little too much. There is such a strong desire to communicate with each other stimulated by these aspects that it can sometimes seem like each person is vying for the stage, or the chance to speak.


Venus | Venus aspects The conjunction, sextile, and trine point to compatibility in relationship values and styles. There can be a wonderful feeling of ease and comfort with each other. With the trine and sextile, although the partners' individual styles of expressing love and affection are different, they are similar enough to feel much in common, and dissimilar enough to keep things interesting and dynamic. It is easy to be romantic with each other without feeling like they have hurt their partner's feelings with a style that is too aggressive or too passive, too intimate or too impersonal, and so forth. The quincunx creates a stimulating attraction, albeit a frustrating one at times. The opposition and square both point to attraction, but the attraction can be a frustrating one at times. The friction is caused by a lack of understanding due to different styles and needs in love, and the result can be both individuals feeling unappreciated. Partners should make every attempt to look beyond the style of relating and into each other's hearts.


Venus | Mars aspects These are classic aspects, although they can be rather troublesome. Any aspect between these planets in synastry points to sexual and romantic attraction. Sexual magnetism of an insistent quality is found in the conjunction. Sextiles and trines produce attraction that is not as insistent or competitive as the hard aspects. Rather, the attraction is smooth and pleasant. However, the square, opposition, and quincunx can cause friction at the same time. There is considerable attraction, but over time, this sexual energy can become disruptive when left unchecked. Remember that the more difficult aspects have great value in that they stimulate people. Arguments often augment the sexual act in some way. The square tends to be the most troublesome interaspect between Venus and Marssexual attraction exists and is powerful, but sex is often delayed as the couple tends to engage in arguments that take time to work out before they do what they really want to do. Here, sex is probably the root of the arguments, even if this is not immediately apparent. These couples may try to resolve this conflict by attempting to consciously let down their defenses, turn off their egos, and just have sex. This way, they may find that they have much less to argue about. The reason for this is that the square gives tremendous physical attraction and tension that is very often disguised and mischanneled. The Venus person is easily hurt or offended by Mars. At times, the Mars person's direct approach is fully appreciated, but other times, the Venus person is offended by it.


Venus | Jupiter aspects These aspects are generally quite helpful in any relationship. The presence of flowing aspects between these planets in synastry can help smooth out any relationship. Forgiveness is a key strengthening factor with this interaspect. See the discussion of Jupiter in Synastry below for more details.


When Venus contacts the outer planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto you will find very dynamic interactions that evolve over time. When a relationship lasts long enough to let these energies play out completely, increased understanding and connection are possible.


Venus | Saturn aspects When challenging, these interaspects can be difficult to deal with, but effort put forth to understand the interplays will result in enormous increases in understanding of the partners both individually and as a couple. There is often a strong need to be with each other. With the troublesome aspects [opposition and square], the sexual relationship may start out just fine, but later can become unpredictable, stunted, or sporadic. Spontaneity is lost, and this is generally due to power struggles in the daytoday life of the couple. The Venus person often feels oppressed and restricted by the Saturn person. In fact, Venus may feel criticized and nagged, and Saturn may feel an unhealthy need to control and restrict the Venus native. This general conflict can lead to problems in the bedroom. With the sextile and trine, however, there is a steady and stable quality to the love and affection for each other, but some reserve or selfconsciousness regarding the expression of feelings, romantic desires, and sexuality is present nevertheless.


Venus | Uranus aspects These aspects offer excitement and thrills. The problem with this aspect, which is most apparent when the aspect is a conjunction, square, opposition, or quincunx, is that there may be an overall dissatisfaction with each other. Although sex can be especially excitingeven ecstaticwith each other, the partners may easily become restless, as there is an unsettled feeling between the natives that is persistent. When one person [especially Venus] is feeling romantic and loving, the other person [usually Uranus] is distant. When the interaspect is a flowing one [sextile or trine], the relationship may also be somewhat erratic, but this quality pleases both individuals. They may delight in the fact that their partnership is a little offbeat, and never dull!


Venus | Neptune aspects These aspects are evolving and involving. They tend to play out over time in different ways. At first, the relationship is allconsuming. There is a feeling of soul connection. Slowly, realities surface themselves. Things do not seem as wonderful as they first appeared. Many couples with these aspects in synastry can overcome these little letdowns, as long as they let the relationship play out long enough. Eventually, they may find that the feelings come full circle. The difference is that they will come to realize that while what they loved the other person for at the outset of the relationship may not have been based on reality, they have the huge potential to love each other for who they really are. The difficult aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] can result in disappointment and bitterness. Read more details about VenusNeptune aspects in synastry.


Venus | Pluto aspects These aspects point to intense and magnetic attraction. They figure strongly in relationships that are longlasting and significant. Love with these people is intense and transforming. This interaspect demands physical presence. When the natives are apart from each other, jealousies can arise. The difficult aspects generally play out as an emotional rollercoaster ride, with extreme swings from loving intensely to antagonism.


Venus | Chiron aspects These aspects are powerful indeed. Look for the conjunction, trine, and sextile, in particular, as an indicator of true love. There is a healing quality to the relationshipone in which the natives feel that the love they have can heal the wounds they might have accumulated in relationships past. These people feel a strong need to be together, set up house together, and go the distance with each other. There can be a true feeling of joy in the love they share with one another. When the aspect is challenging, however, there can be irrational behavior and reactions to each other that are based on wounds of the past, carried forward into the present relationship.





Mercury in Synastry Mercury crossaspects and interactions deserve some attention in any study of the dynamics of a relationship. See our article, Mercury in Synastry for more information.


Mars in Synastry is the planet of sexual expression and desire. It shows us our animal instincts. While Venus rules romantic attraction, Mars indicates a more animal need for sex and assertion. It is important to note that Mars in synastry does not point to the need to be together forever. But, if other indicators of love and relationship are already present in synastry, strong Mars connections will help [or hinder] the relationship, mostly in the bedroom. When powerful interaspects of Mars occur, sex may not be as ecstatic and rich as those indicated by Venus, but it may be quite satisfying on a basic body level. When Mars figures strongly in synastry, but the aspects involved are quite difficult, the couple may find a lot to argue about. Even though Mars aspects may not bring together people in the first place, they have a lot of value. The conflict that they bring to a relationship can be difficult at times, but invigorating as well. If the individuals are growthoriented, the basic truths that Mars interaspects bring will contribute to overall satisfaction. When Saturn is not involved, this couple will argue, and the growth that they pull from the conflict will likely spur them to have great sex together. MarsSun interaspects generally highlight action and physical attraction. The difficult aspects can indicate a passionate relationship that is filled with conflict. MarsMoon interaspects can be very sexy and sometimes volatile. Emotionalism and domestic arguments can figure strongly in such a relationship when the difficult aspects are involved. MarsMercury interaspects, when flowing, indicate passionate and stimulating conversations. When difficult, regular discussions quickly turn into arguments. The Mars native may show insensitivity to the Mercury native's point of view. MarsNeptune aspects are generally indicative of sexual attraction, which can be disruptive and variable if the aspects are difficult. MarsPluto interaspects are similarly stimulating, though more intensely so. Difficult aspects can create battles of wills that threaten harmony. One of the most difficult aspects to occur between two charts is MarsSaturn when it is in conjunction, square, or opposition. Unless the partners involved are prepared to work on the relationship with a sincere desire for growth, the tensions, frustrations, and blockages can feel insurmountable. Read more about the challenges of MarsSaturn in synastry. Comparing the signs of each individual's Mars can be illuminating.


Mars in the Elements What motivates people? What gets them out of bed in the morning? How do they go about getting what they want? Look to the position of Mars in the natal chart for answers.


Mars | Fire are generally quite passionate. When they get angry, those around them generally know it. There's very little pretension with this position of Mars. They very much like to get what they want, and they generally won't hide this fact from you. These natives are far too impatient to play mind games or to employ too much strategy in order to get where they want to go.


Mars | Earth are rarely aggressive, but they absolutely are determined individuals. Their goals in life are often quite practical ones that are realistic and attainable. They get up in the morning with the idea that they must work for what they want in life. There is a basic resourcefulness to Mars in Earth.


Mars | Air are generally have many interests and drives. These natives are especially clever about getting what they want. Unlike Mars in Fire, Mars in Air natives are quite capable of adopting airs and tactics to get and do the things they want. These natives are quite polished in manner. They'll rarely offend you in an overt way, preferring to settle things on an intellectual level.


Mars | Water are generally quite adept at strategy. They are emotional and instinctual people. They are unlikely to be directly aggressive about getting what they want in life. These natives feel their way through life feelings and actions work in tandem. Although they generally aren't as flexible and polished as Mars in Air, they do employ tactics and often use roundabout ways to fulfill their desires.


Mars in Fire | Mars in Earth There is often a conflict between creative instincts [Fire] and physical desires [Earth]. While Fire rarely thinks before it acts, Earth is deliberate and careful. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can help Fire Mars slow down; Fire Mars can help stimulate Earth Mars to be more creative. Common Ground Both Fire and Earth are rather self-centered in their desires, and both want to put their plans into action.


Mars in Fire | Mars in Air They will often find some common ground both are restless individuals who want to grow and expand. However, Mars in Air can be baffled by the way Mars in Fire takes things quite personally, and seems overly concerned with themselves, often ignoring other people's perspectives. Fire Mars tires of Air Mars's desire to talk about everyone else's points of view. Air Mars's theories and plans can be too detached, lighthearted, and lacking in passion for Fire Mars. Most frustrating is Air Mars's concentration on theory, simply because Fire Mars wants action. How they can benefit each other | When they consciously try to learn from each other, Fire can help Air infuse some passion and zeal into their lives, and help put some of Air's ideas into action. Air can help Fire by offering more detached, impersonal points of view. Common Ground Both Fire and Air Mars people are positive, outgoing communicators. They both have a strong desire to learn and grow through their actions.


Mars in Fire | Mars in Water Both individuals are intuitive and sometimes impractical people, but Water Mars may find Fire Mars too self-righteous and egoistic. Debates are fun for Fire Mars, while Water Mars prefers not to argue. Water Mars enjoys experiences that allow them to connect with their partner, while Fire Mars is far more excitable and self-centered in their expression. Fire Mars can be too direct and brash for the more sensitive Water Mars; while Water Mars can dampen the enthusiasm of Fire Mars, too often becoming the proverbial "wet blanket". Fire can quickly become impatient with Water's silences. How they can benefit each other | When they consciously try to learn from each other, Fire can help Water by infusing Water's plans with optimism and enthusiastic vision of the future. Water reminds Fire to be sensitive to others in their actions. Common Ground Both Water and Fire Mars people intuit things rather than analyze them. They are both warm people.


Mars in Earth | Mars in Air There can be a conflict between the Earth Mars's desire for results and Air Mars's curious, theoretical nature. Earth becomes impatient with Air's many theories, which often seem impractical to Earth. Air's biggest complaint is that Earth is stuck in the material world, and Earth's focus is far too narrow. What good is theory without practical application in the real world? Why waste so much time thinking?, asks Earth. Similarly, Air can quickly become frustrated with the subjective and overly practical Earth person. Life is not just about what can be done what is life without higher thought?, asks Air. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can help Air Mars handle the details of everyday life, bringing some practical value to Air's many theories; Air can stimulate Earth to think in objective terms. Common Ground Both Earth and Air are dry thinkers who easily separate thought and communication from emotion and passion.


Mars in Earth | Mars in Water There can be a conflict between realistic plans and dreaminess. Water Mars prefers to intuit their way through problems, while Earth attempts always to find practical solutions. Water is focused on the intangibles of life, and his | her thinking and communication is infused with emotion. Thus, Water can find Earth too hard-nosed and selfish, while Earth can easily get frustrated with Water's plans that seem too impractical and dreamy. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can give Water Mars some practical and useful tips on solving problems, while Water can teach Earth to consider the feelings of others when formulating plans. Common Ground Both Earth and Water communicate in quiet ways, and are not given to as much analysis as the other elements.


Mars in Air | Mars in Water There can be a conflict between Air's need to be detached in thoughts and communication and Water's desire to keep things personal. Water Mars intuits his | her way through problems, while Air is endlessly analyzing and considering all sides of a situation. Water can become quite impatient with Air's need to analyze situations excessively. Water just "knows" things instinctively, while Air looks to the world around them for answers. Air seems to detach him | herself from emotions during a discussion, and this detachment can be frustrating to Water, whose approach is warmer and more subjective. How they can benefit each other | Water Mars can help Air Mars focus on a problem rather than scatter his | her intellectual energies. Water can help Air learn about what he | she really feels, rather than thinks. Air may help Water think more objectively, and communicate with more refinement. Common Ground Both Water and Air are concerned with their partner's perspective, and care about what others think. Their plans and ideas are less self-centered than those of Fire and Earth.


Mars Aspects When Mars in one person's chart forms a major aspect with Mars in their partner's chart, desires and passions are stimulated. These people will do a lot together. When the aspect is difficult [if it forms a square or opposition], the relationship can be a tempestuous one, as the individuals involved often get caught up in a battle of wills. Competitiveness is often the result.








Jupiter in Synastry When Jupiter in one person's chart forms aspects with a personal planet or Ascendant in their partner's chart, a special relationship is formed. The Jupiter person tends to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. Jupiter sees the good in the area of life and energy of the other's contacted planet. Jupiter doesn't tend to blind itself to the negative [that is Neptune's job!]. It simply searches for the positive, and finds much to like about the person. You can think of the Jupiter taking on the role of loving father who naturally finds goodness in his child. This is not the kind of father who refuses to see the "bad", or who totally glorifies or idealizes his child. In fact, Jupiter is quite likely to see the negative, but he only wants to see his child grow, and easily excuses the less desirable traits, preferring to think that the good outweighs the bad. He is unthreatened by the child's behavior. The Jupiter person in synastry wants to help out, cheer up, and encourage the other person. Jupiter gets the most pleasure when he sees his loved one grow. Therefore, if Jupiter contacts another person's Moon, the Jupiter person will find the Moon person's expression of his emotions, family values, and natural habits really quite wonderful and pleasing. Jupiter will encourage Moon to emote, to feel, and to seek security. Jupiter will have a strong need to protect the Moon person. When Jupiter contacts Venus, a pleasing attraction occurs between the two individuals. In the final analysis, Jupiter will give the Venus person the benefit of the doubt at all times. Jupiter will forgive, and even forget. Under Jupiter's influence, the Venus person will feel free to express his or her relationship needs, desire for pleasure, and romantic inclinations. The two will have a grand time, full of natural humor and enjoyment. There is a strong desire for peace, and forgiveness comes very easy. If the aspect is troublesome, they may also encourage each other to overindulge. This is when Jupiter becomes the indulgent father. The desire to see the other person enjoy life may be taken a little too far. Jupiter aspects in synastry are generally very helpful. While other difficult aspects may exist in synastry, overall goodwill between the individuals will outlast the conflicts. At the very least, even if these two end up parting, they will do so on good terms, remaining special friends.





Saturn in Synastry Saturn interaspects can be viewed as some of the "glue" that binds people together, but they can be tricky to manage. Read more about Saturn in Synastry. When Saturn in one chart forms an aspect with another person's personal planet or point, the energy interplays between the two people are distinct. Saturn is the planet of restriction, commitment, and reality. We usually find Saturn interaspects with personal planets in long-lasting relationships. These aspects play out over time and often manifest in clear stages. At the outset, there can be some resistance or reluctance to forming a relationship and | or a commitment with each other on one of the individuals' parts, as if he or she senses that committing to the other person will involve something heavy. Once that initial reluctance [which can range from vague to explicit, depending on the power of the Saturn interaspects and the individual temperaments involved] passes, there is generally a wonderful feeling of familiarity and safety with one another. These people feel closely connected. Saturn interaspects tend to be very binding. As time passes, and especially once a commitment is made between each other, the personal planet person will inevitably grow in that area of life or part of the personality represented by the personal planet. [Note that a commitment doesn't necessarily literally mean marriage. It can be as simple as a commitment that the partnership is a one-to-one relationship, or that it is exclusive.] What generally happens is that the security that bound the two together in the first place feels threatened on the part of the Saturn person as the personal planet person changes or grows. Saturn resists change, and feels threatened by it. The Saturn person may exercise some kind of control over the personal planet person some form of restriction. This can take the form of criticizing the energies expressed by the personal planet person. Let's take an example of Mercury conjunct Saturn in synastry. At the beginning, there can be a real feeling of mutual respect regarding how each person uses his or her brain, how they communicate, and how they think. The Mercury person may, in some ways, look up to the Saturn person, who tends to display a rather mature way of thinking that Mercury admires. Mercury may look to Saturn for advice, and Saturn responds with much enthusiasm, delighting in helping Mercury, and even teaching him or her. As time goes on, inevitably Mercury will excitedly share an experience wherein he or she had an enlightening conversation with a friend outside of their relationship. Saturn can feel mighty threatened by this simple experience. Saturn does not feel comfortable with that initial bond changing, or what he or she perceives as changing. Why isn't Mercury turning to him or her? Saturn may deal with this fear by putting down the experience, punching holes in the theory that this threatening "other" has presented to Mercury. It doesn't even have to be about another person. Perhaps Mercury discovered on his or her own a new way of thinking that inspired him or her. This can be just as threatening to Saturn, who finds security in that initial bond that felt exclusive and special, whereby Mercury and Saturn came together with a mutual understanding that they turned to each other for advice and inspiring conversations. In fact, anything that happens outside of the relationship in the area represented by the personal planet can be seen as a threat to the exclusive bond the couple had at the beginning of the relationship. In truth, the bond is likely still there from the point of view of Mercury. But Saturn sees it differently. Saturn fears anything that threatens the initial bond they formed, and sees any signs of growth on Mercury's part as a threat to that bond. We have all seen Saturn in synastry at work in some shape or form. An example involves a couple who initially bonded with each other on many levels, one of which was a shared sense of humor. In this case, the woman's Mars formed a square to the man's Saturn. In the early stages of their relationship, the woman found the man very funny. She broke into giggles at his jokes, and she expressed to him how she never laughed so much with a person in her life. As time passed, she felt that whenever she found someone else funny or even something else funny, her partner came down on her in some way. He passed her a look of disapproval when she broke into giggles at something that wasn't coming from him. His look would say, "What the heck is wrong with you?" Sometimes, he wouldn't just pass her a disapproving or superior look. He would say things like, "I really don't know why you find that so funny." As time passed, a dark cloud formed above the couple. She didn't giggle as freely, as there is nothing more flattening as breaking into belly laughs only to be met with a look that says, "You're so immature". She began to feel that they didn't share the same sense of humor, even though they most certainly did at the beginning of their relationship. The man felt threatened by his partner finding humor in anything that did not originate between them. She began to feel unnatural around him, restricted, like he rained on her parade. She also began to view experiences when he was not around as a huge release. When they were apart, she felt more free to be herself. Thus, a distance was created between them. Saturn in synastry is intriguing because what begins as a strong sense of security and comfort felt between a couple can eventually degenerate into feelings of pressure to stay the same, and an overall sense that one does not want the other to grow or develop. Saturn generally is the one who wants the bond to be exclusive, and although the personal planet person generally wants the same thing, that personal planet person feels enormous pressure to be a certain way and feels like he or she is not free to express him or herself in a natural and dynamic manner. With repeated experiences in which the personal planet meets a critical or cold response from Saturn as a result of a spontaneous comment or action, the personal planet begins to censor himself or herself, and spontaneity is lost. Distance between the two is created, and a sense of being stifled, restricted, and censored slowly erodes the bond that felt so darn good at the beginning of their relationship. The personal planet person feels like he or she has to constantly monitor what he or she does or says in the presence of the Saturn person. Let's explore Moon-Saturn interchart aspects as another example. This cross-aspect is a powerful one. Either one [or both] people involved may have made it clear at some early point in the interaction that this relationship was to be a serious or committed one. Whether or not it was verbalized, the air of responsibility is explicit. Although the relationship may begin with some element of enthusiasm, over time, Moon may feel the need to censor feelings of dependency on the relationship and on Saturn himself for some reason or another. Moon may also feel the need to censor self-expression, feeling almost like a child facing a disapproving adult. Moon may sense a certain level of seriousness and even harshness or narrowness in Saturn that may not even exist in absolute terms. Saturn may not even be aware of this unconscious reaction to Moon. Whatever it is, Moon can feel somewhat constrained by the relationship, and unable to express the "child" within, simply because of the expectation that Saturn may not approve, may not be capable of understanding, or may not be equipped to handle these expressions. The sense that Moon gets is that Saturn's needs for commitment are paramount, and that "frivolous" expressions of neediness or dependency wouldn't be appropriate; or that expressions of dependency on anything or anyone else will be met with Saturn's disapproval. It may also be that situational factors are such that true emotional intimacy is blocked, even though both parties want to get closer to each other. The caution here is to avoid too much "censoring" to the point that Moon feels emotionally isolated, misunderstood, or blocked. Does Saturn truly benefit from this kind of "censoring"? Certainly not in the long run, because if it gets out of hand, Saturn will lose touch with Moon's deepest needs, fears, and desires. Emotional distance doesn't benefit either person. The chemistry in this relationship brings out the individual need for security and safety in both people, and each will certainly find a basic sense of safety with the other. Although Moon in particular may feel emotionally frustrated at times, there is a feeling of constancy and dependability in Saturn that is very attractive. This relationship stands much chance of being a long-lasting one. However, it can have its fair share of ups and downs. Periods of emotional distance and subsequent feelings that the relationship may be too "heavy" to maintain are often followed by tearful and emotional "reunions" when both parties feel that they need each other desperately, and that the attachment runs deeper than is always apparent. It is easy to see, with this kind of pattern, that either or both individuals could feel "trapped" together at times! But the truth of the matter is, given the depth of the attachment to each other, there is much to gain from working on the intimacy issues described above. Saturn needs to face his or her fears and consciously work on not clamping down on Moon, and Moon, instead of reacting defensively to Saturn, must also look to see whether Saturn does have a point, so to speak, and Moon can actually benefit from some of the more reasonable boundaries that Saturn seems to draw. Karma is associated with Saturn, where the personal planet person feels some sort of personal debt to the Saturn person. The Saturn person seems to have the upper hand in the relationship, at least for a while. Both parties must be more mindful of what exactly they are doing. A balance is possible, as the personal planet person may benefit from Saturn's impositions, at least ones that are not purely based on fear. Maybe the personal planet person does need to learn to be more responsible and could benefit from some maturation, and Saturn can learn to loosen up in certain ways. Reacting defensively to each other will only exacerbate the problem. Saturn trines and sextiles are generally considered supportive. They do have some of the characteristics described above, but generally there is less defensiveness between the two, and criticism is constructive if it exists. This goes both ways the Saturn person is less threatened, and the personal planet person less defensive when faced with Saturn's restricting energy. It is certainly easier to learn from each other this way. Nevertheless, even with flowing aspects involving Saturn, the chemistry is such that there is a characteristic reserve or self-consciousness present in the relationship with regards to the expression of feelings, romantic desires, will, intellect, or sexuality, depending on the personal planet involved. Although parallels are likened to conjunctions, when Saturn is parallel a personal planet in synastry, the interplay is easier than the conjunction. The Saturn person is not as inclined to criticism or control. Rather, the stabilizing influence of Saturn is more prominent. Important Note Personal planets overlaying the tenth house of a partner's chart can express similarly, where the tenth house person takes on a Saturnine role to the personal planet person.





Soulmate Astrology | Karmic & Soul Mate Connections in Astrology


Things to look for in Synastry | Feel The Rhythm Ascendant Connections Never underestimate the power of the Ascendant! It may be easy to underplay, or even dismiss altogether, the Ascendantís role in interpersonal relationships when we think of the Ascendant as the ďmaskĒ we wear when we meet others. If the Ascendant is a mere mask, shouldnít it only be important at the very beginning of a relationship? We donít think so. In fact, we feel that the Ascendant has an ongoing, vital role in relationships of all kinds, including long-lasting, one-to-one relationships. We have found that interplays between Ascendants can be the source of basic conflict or harmony, on a body level. Remember as well that the Ascendant defines the Descendant, which is a highly sensitive relationship point in the natal chart.


You Complete Me | Grand Trines in Synastry In our experience, one of the most powerful indicators of special relationships occurs when a simple trine in one person's natal chart is effectively turned into a Grand Trine by another person's planet[s], particularly when it involves personal planets. For example, in one person's chart, Mars is in the early degrees of Sagittarius and trines the Moon in the early degrees of Aries. A planet in the early degrees of Leo would form a Grand Trine in this native's chart, but doesn't exist. Her partner's Sun fills this pattern, as it is in the early degrees of Leo. This powerful connection is especially potent when it is reciprocated. A special bond exists between the natives.


Grand Trines this aspect pattern involves three points [three or more planets may be involved] that form mutual trines to each other. when lines are drawn from each planet to the other in a natal chart, a triangle results.


Nodes of the Moon The Nodes of the Moon tend to be very significant in synastry. Strong Nodal ties are powerful. The individuals are drawn to each other. In the natal chart, the Nodal axis suggests powerful lessons an individual needs to learn in this lifetime, and when A's Nodal axis falls on personal planets or points in B's chart, the magnetism is powerful indeed. Perhaps B will play a large role in A's life, and either represent or force A to live out some of the issues inherent in the condition of the Nodal axis. If person A's planet [especially a personal planet] conjuncts B's South Node, the connection is there, no doubt. Person A will feel extremely comfortable with person B, at first. However, person A will eventually feel that the relationship drains him | her of energy, and may feel the need to move on and release him | herself from the relationship, as the relationship pulls him | her into the past. We all face our North Node issues at some point in our lives [we often start the process in our 30's!]. If another person is emphasizing our South Node without equal or greater aspects to our North Node, we may feel held back and "outgrow" that person! Also note that there can be some uneasiness and hesitance when the Nodes, especially North Nodes, are strongly contacted by the planets and points of another person. The magnetism can be strong [and it isn't necessarily sexual, occurring in platonic friendships and relationships as well], but a certain amount of fear can be present [on the part of the Node person]. One way of looking at Nodal contacts in synastry A person's planet conjunct your North Node is pulling you forward, toward lessons that you need in order for spiritual growth and happiness. But you may be somewhat reluctant to face these issues, depending on "where you're at" in the path. A person's planet conjunct your South Node is pulling you back into familiar territory. There is something "easy" about the relationship, and the lure can be strong, although you may eventually sense that you need something more, which can be viewed as "outgrowing" the relationship or even the person. Saturn conjunct the Nodes can be a separative aspect. I am not as yet certain of exactly why this is the case, but I have seen it time and time again where Saturn conjunct the North or South Node in a composite chart or in synastry is present in romantic relationships that don't get off the ground properly.


You are Made for Me | The Vertex A lesser known point in any natal chart is the vertex. It acts almost like a secondary descendant. Strong interaspects involving the vertex are found in the synastry of people who feel they are made for each other. There is a fated quality attached to the vertex.


Sign Interchanges When sign positions of planets are interchanged, there is a special compatibility and fascination. For example, if one person has a Sun in Aries and Venus in Taurus, and another person has Sun in Taurus and Venus in Aries, although they will act quite differently, this pair will have some interesting exchanges in their relationship.


I Feel For You | Sun | Moon Contacts When one partner's Sun makes an aspect with the other's Moon, there is a natural affinity. The Moon person supports the Sun in quiet but meaningful ways, and the Sun person returns the favor with an affirming energy.


You Rock My World | Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto [and Chiron] Connections When the outer planets [Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto] figure strongly in the synastry of two individuals, there is generally a powerful feeling of being uplifted and transformed through contact with each other. Chiron figuring prominently in synastry seems to be just as potent.


You Give My Life Meaning | Sun | Moon Midpoint Connections A person's Sun | Moon midpoint [] is a point of great sensitivity. In a natal chart, planets that form a hard aspect to this point are highlighted, and tend to reveal a strong sense of destiny and identity. Naturally, when a planet in another person's chart makes a hard aspect to this point in a native's chart, that other person tends to give the native a feeling of purpose and meaning.


Sun | Moon Midpoint in the natal chart is a highly sensitive and personal point. It is a mathematical point the point midway [or exactly halfway] between the Sun and the Moon. Inherent in the symbolism of the Sun | Moon midpoint is the desire for companionship. The Sun | Moon midpoint represents a point of "inner marriage" and symbolizes close personal relationship. This point is very important in any kind of relationship analysis, in addition to natal chart work. Note that with midpoints, it is customary to consider other planets and points that form the following aspects to the midpoint conjunction, opposition, square, semi-square, and sesquiquadrature. When a planet makes any of these aspects to a midpoint, the notation looks like the following [where, for example, Venus is the planet forming one of these aspects with the Sun | Moon midpoint] Venus=Sun | Moon or = In synastry, the Sun | Moon midpoint is very often activated by the other person's personal planet in significant relationships. If another person's personal planet, and especially the Sun or Moon, forms an aspect such as the ones referred to above, that person represents some kind of promise of integration to the Sun | Moon midpoint owner. Whether or not integration actually happens, this synastry connection offers a promise which can be difficult to resist. Therefore, it is a strong indicator of attraction. Many astrologers assert that significant relationships that lead to marriage or a similar commitment contain at least one of the following interchanges in synastry one person's Sun aspecting the other's Moon, and | or one person's personal planet aspecting the other's Sun | Moon midpoint. n.b. In order to understand the symbolism of the Sun | Moon midpoint, one must understand the symbolism of midpoints in general. Ebertin, respected as an authority on midpoints, defined the midpoint as a sensitive point in a chart where the influence of the two planets involved combine together.


Asteroids | Eros & Psyche Some astrologers are studying the role of asteroids in astrology. Strong connections between the asteroids Eros [] and Psyche [] in synastry point to a powerful romantic and sexual relationship.


The Asteroid Eros can shed some light on some of our erotic turn-ons. In mythology, Eros was the god of sexual love and desire. He was considered irresistible. In Roman mythology, Eros was known as Cupid. "In Greek art Eros was depicted as a winged youth, slight but beautiful, often with eyes covered to symbolize the blindness of love. Sometimes he carried a flower, but more commonly the silver bow and arrows, with which he shot darts of desire into the bosoms of gods and men." [Encarta Encyclopedia]. Eros overpowers the mind with love and sex. Eros represents sexual objectification, passion and desire, and creativity. Note that Eros is not always sexual, per se, as Eros represents creative passion as well. In the chart, it can point to areas into which we pour a lot of passion.

Indicators of Sexual Attraction in Astrology


Relatie Astrologie | Astrologie Liefde Huwelijk Relaties


Relatie Astrologie is the comparison of the charts of two (or more) persons for purposes of assessing relationship. Very accurate predictions, encouragements, and well-considered warnings based on planetary aspects can me made. As with aspects in general, the most weight is given to the conjunction, followed by the opposition, the square. The other aspects weight roughly equally. The harmonious aspects of trines and sextiles are pleasant and helpful. Conjuncties and Opposities will be where the most relevant action is.


Relatie Astrologie | Conjuncties
Conjuncties show where two or more factors go together, and the sign where this occurs may indicate of how that operates. "Attraction" in relation to Conjuncties, refer to all kinds of interest between people, not just romantic ones.


Relatie Astrologie | Opposities
Opposities show where one person opposes the natural thrust or way of being of the other. Sometimes Opposities can be complentary- at their optimal expression - most times they are stressful. It's hard to move forward in life
when one is constantly opposed by another, when one's valid goals and life impulses are being sabotaged or thwarted.


Relatie Astrologie | Vierkanten
Vierkanten in Relatie Astrologie are pesky irritations that may never go away, but are not necessarily problematic. Vierkanten often involve issues of "rightness," and emotional security that may be jeopardized by disagrees. They also provide "spice" and other viewpoints to consider.


Relatie Astrologie | Driehoeken
Driehoeken of Zons, moons, venus (and in the same element of earth, air, fire, or water) add greatly to the potential for attraction and harmony. This is especially true of the luminaries (Zon and Maan).


Relatie Astrologie | Sextiel
Sextiel aspects add slightly to potential for communication and friendship, the possibility of building together, and helping each other to achieve goals.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon
Another's planets conjoining our Zon tend to get our attention and are hard to ignore. There are issues of respect,
power, admiration, authority, identity, self, health and vitality, well-being, self-confidence, radiance, and success.



Relatie Astrologie | Maan conjunct Zon
Usually a strong attraction, lots in common, quick bonding and mutual understanding, openness to each other.
Even if not a tight conjunction, having Maan and Zon in the sa sign in any degree is a very important aspect
in Relatie Astrologie, and usually makes for high compatibility potential and attraction if not mitigated by other astrological
and social/ethical/therapeutic factors. Maan opposition Zon usually brings out the complentary nature of both,
and is actually a positive aspect in relationship most of the time.


Relatie Astrologie | Mercurius conjunct Zon
Communication, ideas exchanged, ideas or approaches in common, lots to talk about, curiosity about each other.



Relatie Astrologie | Venus conjunct Zon
Pleasant, harmonious, helpful, possible attraction, admiration, goodwill, artistic and hobby interests in common.


Relatie Astrologie | Mars conjunct Zon
Stimulating, possibly sexual, high energy, warring, and conflict. The Mars person may perceive the Zon person as authoritarian,
overbearing, or egotistical. The Zon person may perceive the Mars person as argumentative, touchy, and stuck on differences.
Can be good for the short term affair to get early sexual experience. Young women often unconsciously seek out a man whose
Zon is in the same sign as their own Mars for infactuation and early sexual experiences. These relationships almost never work
out long term - too many disagreements, Hopefully the choice for marriage will be astrologically quite different from their
earlier Zon-Mars choices.


Relatie Astrologie | Jupiter conjunct Zon
A general blessing for both parties, and financially beneficial for the Zon person. A most auspicious aspect.



Relatie Astrologie | Saturnus conjunct Zon
May begin as mutual admiration, but works to the detrint of the Zon person as time goes on. Good for intellectual pursuits
and admiration among colleagues or peers, and for demonstration of mastery. Both share high standards of excellence
and ethics. After a while the Saturnus person will resist the Zon person's efforts and presence, and the Zon person wil
l feel he can't do anything right, that even his very best is not good enough. Danger for the Zon person is loss of confidence,
loss of vitality, loss of sparkle, golden life turned black, depression, regrets. If criticism, intellectual gas and one upsmanship,
or competition co into play, the Zon person can feel quite overwheld. Can be a very deeply bonded connection, good for
lifetime friendship, professional colleagues if not competing against each other, useful in cooperative ventures involving
design and construction. Difficult in romantic or marriage relationships, and likely to put a damper or inhibition on sexual
relations early on.



Relatie Astrologie | Uranus conjunct Zon
The Zon person is stimulated on many levels, and slightly unnerved or made nervous by the presence of the Uranus person.
The Zon person can never fully relax in the presence of the Uranus person. The Uranus person gives full permission
for the Zon person to be an individual, bright person, entrepreneurial, spiritually aware, alive, and socially unconventional.
A stimulating relationship for friends and associates, but could be too hard on the Zon person's health and nervous system
to be around the Uranus person all the time. The Uranus person keeps the Zon person slightly off balance, which can be
good at times for shaking up the status quo, troubleshooting, and a proverbial whack on the side of the head, but not
all the time. The Uranus person can make the Zon person more accident prone.



Relatie Astrologie | Neptunus conjunct Zon
A gentle, intuitive, refined, spiritual quality. Shared spiritual or aesthetic interests. Telepathic rapport likely. Relationship
needs several reality checks if you're planning to do anything important together, as these two together can be unrealistic
or ungrounded, over-optimistic and starry-eyed at times.



Relatie Astrologie | Pluto conjunct Zon
A powerful and possibly explosive influence, one that will be deeply transformative, and may involve life an death matters,
with high intensity. For the Zon person, it's like sitting on top of a rumbling volcano, and getting your deepest fears and
subconscious stirred up where they were not before. The Zon person is likely to feel a bit intimidated and uneasy around
the Pluto person, yet there is the potential for deep telepathy and mutual empowernt. The downside is power plays and
manipulations by the Pluto person, and more intensity and pressure than the Zon person can handle long term. Always
intriguing, and not for the timid!


Relatie Astrologie | Chiron conjunct Zon
The Chiron person will work magic in fascination, however the Zon person will usually have most of the power in the
relationship. The Chiron person however may prevail and succeed in life longer than the Zon person, should Zon ever
reject Chiron. Chiron bring surprises to the Zon person and tries to heal him. If the other resists the opening for healing
created by the Chiron person, the relationship breaks down, and the Chiron person may get rejected. Chiron person
will try to fascinate, and the Zon person wants to be noticed and admired. Mutual admiration, high idealism, and open
ness to effective healing work best here.



Relatie Astrologie | Maan
Planets aspecting our Maan deal with our natural open receptivity, needs for unconditional love and nurturing, emotional
well-being, comfort, and security - very fundamental areas of life that must be taken into account. Most aspects to the Maan
are similar to that of the Zon above.



Relatie Astrologie | Maan conjunct Mercurius
One of the best aspects to have in any kind of relationship, fostering mutual interest and ease of communication.



Relatie Astrologie | Mars conjunct Maan
Exciting and irritating, and a woman's Maan conjunct a man's Mars tends to result in stress and tears for her sooner or later,
though there may be many other compatible factors. Mars tends to co on too strong, does not take the Maan person's needs
into account, and fosters emotional pain.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Mercurius
Aspects have to do with communications and shared ideas. Communication is a make-or-break factor in any relationship.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Venus
Aspects lend harmony, idealism, pleasantries, ease, shared values, beauty, attraction and sotis love.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Mars
Aspects are exciting, stimulating, energizing, and sexual, but also provoking, willful, argumentative, disagreeing, loud, blaming,
accusing, and sotis violent.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Jupiter
Aspects are expansive, allowing, prospering, blessing. In Jupiter Opposities, beware of bad judgnt due to another's influence.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon Saturnus
Aspects are initially admiring, impressive, focusing, but later beco squelching, denying, rejecting, oppressive, critical, narrow
minded, blaming, accusatory, controlling, to the point of cold hearted cruelty - resulting in depression, apathy, hopelessness,
depression, inhibition. Saturnus tends to add longevity, glue, and concrete to relationships; Saturnus Conjuncties can be very
difficult to get away from, yet they sap life force and often must be gotten away from even though that's the last thing the
non-Saturnus person wants to do. Saturnus aspects are what the Magi Society and as well as self for many years have
called "the heartbreak aspects." No matter what the non-Saturnus person does, it is rarely ever enough, rarely right, rarely good
enough to co up to the Saturnus person's expectations or standards. More than speedbumps, the Saturnus Conjuncties especially
all too often end up being disastrous despite the best efforts of the non-Saturnus person. Saturnusian associations that remain
on an intellectual or more formal level with minimized contact can succeed and retain the mutual admiration.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Uranus
Aspects are exciting and stimulating on many levels, awakening, enlightening, shocking, unconventional, surprising.
Situations can begin quickly, then are over just as quickly and steriously. Useful for giving a broad variety of life experiences.
Uranus can be a shattering, explosive, and highly destructive influence if the Uranus person is so inclined. Issues of the will,
individuality, and the right to have one's own viewpoint qua viewpoint (rather than a focus on what is the truth of the matter
or best way to do sothing after fairly weighing all input).



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Neptunus
Aspects are idealized, beautiful, telepathic, spiritual, feel like "soul mates." One's spiritual/religious path seems to be more
symbolized by Neptunus in Relatie Astrologie than Jupiter. Possibility of falsehood, lies, non-confront, oblivion, or "rose colored glasses"
on the material plane.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Pluto
Aspects are powerful, intense, stir things up at a deep level, and encourage both parties to co into their full power
in this lifetime. Full honesty, authenticity, truth told with love in a way the other can receive, ethics, and effective
therapeutic process are required to make the best use of Pluto. Courage will be needed to hangin there. Not for the timid!



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Noordelijke Maansknoop
The Noordelijke Maansknoop person brings challenge, struggle, and effort to the other person's planet, whatever that planet represents.
Pay particular attention to the tight Conjuncties! So people like the challenge, especially those who are bored, and others
don't like it and consider Noordelijke Maansknoop Conjuncties a major bother and distraction from what they'd rather be doing.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Zuidelijke Maansknoop
The Zuidelijke Maansknoop person brings ease, a sense of deja vu, and spirituality to the other person's planet, whatever that planet
represents. There may indeed have been a past life connection with the two of you regarding thes of that planet. Sometimes
the Zuidelijke Maansknoop brings worldly losses with regard to the planet in question, but most of the time it is just an easy and
comfortable connection, especially for older souls on the spiritual path.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Chiron
Aspects bring attraction and fascination, also bizarre reversals, and this can go both ways or applied to both parties.
In the circumstances of ordinary life, Chiron aspects are a mutual monkey wrench in the works and often backfire.
The Chiron dance is a fascinating, treacherous one, sort of like watching a slow train wreck - you can see it happen,
but can't stop it, and can't take your eyes off it. There can be an obsessive, hypnotized quality to Chiron connections.



There's always potential for healing with Chiron, and where effective healing is rejected, things tend to become chaotic,
with new wounds inflicted. Chiron aspects eventually 'hurt' both parties in a more involved relationship feeling very
wounded and regretting ever getting involved with the other, whereas just the fascination aspect remains in a more
detached yet humanly caring relationship.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Juno
Aspects (conjunction) tend toward the parties wanting to cooperate and partner with each other. Opposities make partnering more difficult.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Ceres
Aspects (conjunction) tend toward Ceres unconditionally loving and nurturing the other person. Ceres Conjuncties are
very helpful in relationship. Stressful Ceres Opposities tend to thwart the Ceres person receiving the nurturing and
unconditional love they need, a very bad situation. Ceres is always positive and giving and a blessing (sort of like
Maan-Venus-Jupiter all rolled into one), and having one's own Ceres stressed or opposed is not conducive to well-being
or relationship longevity.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Pallas
Aspects (conjunction) deal with the pallas person's ability to plan, make goals, intuit, and strategize for himself or others,
and how others contribute to or detract from pallas' plans. Opposities deal with opposition to Pallas' plans or modus operandi,
a key factor is the Pallas person has strong ideas about what he wants to do and how he wants to go about it.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Vesta
Aspects tends to be an idealizing influence, shared ideals, and the warm fuzzy feeling and comraderie around shared
values and ideals, and building sothing in life based on those. Vesta Opposities deal with opposition to and frustration
of one's ideals.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon Gelukspunt
Conjuncties act like a mild Jupiter influence. I use only the conjunction for the Gelukspunt, as well as the angles (below).



Relatie Astrologie | Zon Ascendant
Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Ascendant person's image in the world, how they project themselves in the world, and health.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon Nadir
Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Nadir person's roots, comfort, and sense of security, what happens around their home environment, and may have something to do with end of life circumstances, or life and death circumstances.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon MC
Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the MC person's reputation, especially professional reputation, standing in the world, career path, professional openings and success, fame.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon Descendant
Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Descendant person's way of being in relationship, how relationships go for them, not just with that individual but tends to spill over into all other relationships the person has as well.


Relatie Astrologie | Zon Vertex
Conjuncties are similar to Descendant aspects, sometimes even more important. The Vertex point is a mathematical
point that functions as a very sensitive secondary descendant point. Conjuncties to it by another's planets can be very
significant in committed relationships of all kinds.



Relatie Astrologie | Zon in others' houses



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon through Y's houses
Where Person X's Zon falls into Person Y's Chart is of paramount importance, and cannot be overemphasized,
showing something of the ultimate gift, role, and emphasis that X is likely to play in Y's life.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 1st house
This is good for Y's confidence, bringing him out of his shell, giving him carte blanche to be whatever he wants
to be in life, "permission" to express himself freely. Very good for all kinds of relationships.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 2nd house
The focus is on shared values, money, and possessions. X will generally be an expensive proposition for Y,
but what X brings to Y's life may be well worth it - only Y can be the judge of that.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 3rd house
It will generally be what I call "a big talking relationship," lots to talk about, shared ideas, short trips, books, new information,
going here and there, cars and other vehicles, phone calls, more mental and sibling-like after any initial passion wears off.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 4th house
X will tend to come to live with Y, they will manifest housing and real estate together, make a nest together, examine
the dynamics of family relationships, and what makes for stability in life. Can be very good for marriage, this will tend
to be a stable and reliable relationship long term, or at least Y will prefer it as such. X becomes a "rock" of Gibraltar to Y.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 5th house
X is a lot of fun for Y and probably vice versa. 5th house is famous for love affairs. If Y wants to have children, especially many
children, X is a candidate mate to bring Y one or more children. These two may enjoy hobbies, sports, artistic pursuits, special
interests, or vacations together. Emphasis on the 5th house is about creativity, sponteneity, and celebrating the joys of life.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 6th house
The emphasis for Y is on health, work/job, service to others, and the daily routine. X can make a good employee, support staff,
headhunter, health professional or colleague for Y, but 6th house marriages can be focussed on job, health, and the daily grind
without much fun. 6th house friendships mayfocus on the healing process, workplace dynamics, and life transitions.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 7th house
One might expect this would be a great partnership or mate, however the interest may be short lived. The parties bring each
other new viewpoints to consider. X is usually the one to withdraw and lose interest, or burn out, even exhibit something of
a "scorched earth" policy in leaving a relationship, or just withdraw quietly and steriously so as not to cause a fuss, even though
Y would welcome having X around longer.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 8th house
X brings deep psychological understanding and presence to Y's life. There can be property caretaking, taking care of business
and estate issues, awareness of life and death matters, rejuvenation, renewal, and a sense of the deep richness of life.
There are sexual overtones to the relationship that may or may not be acted out, are often kept at a level of subliminal awareness.



Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 9th house
X brings philosophical and religious issues, high mindedness, long distance communications and travel, books and publishing, opportunities to learn and teach and do marketing. There is usually a broad tolerance of each other's viewpoints on a wide variety of subjects. Mid-life and later-life marriages are often 9th house.


Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 10th house
the focus is on career openings and advancent for Y. X makes a good mentor, door opener, introducer, boss, teacher, publicist, and champion for Y. X is the more powerful and makes things happen in the world. Y tends to admire X. Because of the power disparity, normally the 10th is not the best house for marriage, which needs more of an equality to be fully successful. 10th house marriages may run aground when Y cos into his own power after being mentored by X for years.


Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 11th house
the focus is on friendship and more impersonal connection. Perhaps the two parties t through a common organization they belong to. It's difficult to have much long term very close connection past good friendship with soone whose Zon falls into your 11th house. The two can help each other achieve their goals and dreams in life, and make key introductions. Later-life marriages are often 11th house, but early-life 11th house marriages seldom last as these need closer connection and more intimacy. In retrospect, there can be a feeling of ships passing in the night with 11th house relationships, never quite fully connecting, or only briefly connecting.


Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 12th house
the focus is on metaphysics, psychology, spirituality, mysticism, intuitive developnt, the hidden undercurrents of life, causation, therapeutic process, and past lives. Sotis there is also an emphasis on long term health care, and complementary dicine. It's rare to see anyone marry successfully into their 12th house unless there's a soul agreent for long term health care with one of the parties being chronically ill, or the parties mistake a feeling of familiarity that cos with shared past lives for a sign they should be together as mates - which is not necessarily true, is actually rarely true.


Relatie Astrologie | Maan in others' house
X's Maan through Y's houses show an interest and a possibility that either party may entertain regarding the house in question and the relationship. Mostly it shows how Y would like to be supported in life by X, how Y wants X to contribute to or be in his life. However, so interest and a little exploration and action may be all that results, followed by sothing of a withdrawal by X. Maan in the houses is not a big factor long-term in Relatie Astrologie, as a general rule, rather is more of a factor in relation to early interest and shorter term interaction.


Relatie Astrologie | Mercurius in others' house
X's Mercurius through Y's houses bring conversation and learning in the area of X's rcury sign and Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Venus in others' house
X's Venus through Y'S houses brings pleasure, grace, and ease to Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Mars in others' house
X's Mars through Y's houses tends to bring a bit of stimulation, commotion and noise, conflict, action, and energy into Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Jupiter in others' house
X's Jupiter through Y's houses tends to bring blessing, expansion, and prosperity short term and/or long term to Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Saturnus in others' house
X's Saturnus through Y'S houses tends to bring order, desire for organization and simplification, inhibition, a dampening effect, a minimizing, and an econo to Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Uranus in others' house
X's Uranus through Y's houses tends to bring an upsetting, surprising, unconventional, exciting, enlightening trend to Y's house in question. There can be sudden changes for good or ill. Sudden changes for ill are hard on Y's nervous system.


Relatie Astrologie | Neptunus in others' house
X's Neptunus through Y's houses tends to bring an effect of subtlety and telepathy to Y's house in question. Fine distinctions are made via a more "right-brained" or gestalt awareness.


Relatie Astrologie | Pluto in others' house
X's Pluto through Y's houses tends to bring a deep empowernt and potential for transformation, birthing a new world directly or indirectly. When Pluto can be nurturing, intuitive, informative, mentoring, and uses power for mutual benefit and win-win, results for Y are very positive.


Relatie Astrologie | Noordelijke Maansknoop in others' house
X's Noordelijke Maansknoop through Y's houses bring challenges, struggles, efforting to Y regarding the house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Zuidelijke Maansknoop in others' house
X's Zuidelijke Maansknoop through Y'S houses tend to make things easy in that house for Y, though it does help for Y to get rid of the old and outworn, simplify in that area for best long-term results.


Relatie Astrologie | Chiron in others' house
X's Chiron through Y's houses can be an attraction factor with regard to Y's house in question, but also a monkey wrench full of unpleasant surprises and reversals of what you'd expect, in terms of how can things go wrong and not in the desired or usual direction. A lot of potential for healing and help, but also a possible minefield. The houses with Chiron are not usually as upsetting as the Conjuncties.


Relatie Astrologie | Juno in others' house
X's Juno through Y's houses can be a focus where partnership and connection operates well and often, and where Y expects to be supported by X.


Relatie Astrologie | Ceres in others' house
X's Ceres through Y's houses can be an area the Ceres person wants to give unconditional love and nurturing to Y. Simple and comfortable. Do not take Ceres for granted! Validate Ceres, and life is grand.


Relatie Astrologie | Pallas in others' house
X's Pallas through Y's houses can be an area the pallas person wants to apply strategy, planning, intuition and design to Y's house in question.


Relatie Astrologie | Vesta in others' house
X's Vesta through Y's houses can be an area where X gives Y unconditional support and trusts him to do the right thing in that area of Y's chart.


P.S. The composite chart is a different kind of relationship analysis technique. It's the 3rd chart ford by taking the near midpoints of the parties' natal charts. It can be read as a chart of the relationship.


Relatie Astrologie | The Sacred Marriage


Each of these astrological pairs offers us another way to evolve and to reveal our true nature as Love. In each pair, both sides of the equation are equally required. This is a sacred marriage. When we exaggerate one side and deny or condemn the other, we are playing the game of the illusion of reality. In actuality, each side points us back to the middle-back towards Love. Our lives vacillate between these poles in the dance of Creation. The length of time it takes to swing from one extreme to the other determines our degree of wisdom. The faster the swing and the more narrow the angle of swing, the more wise we are. As the swing approaches infinite speed (the speed of light) and zero angle, we experience Love; we have solved the zodiac and gone beyond paradox into a new concentric sphere of understanding and consciousness. A marriage or partnership is the ideal environment for the solving of the zodiac paradoxes-for the revealing of Love. Contrary to popular belief, however, your perfect partner-your soul mate-is not one who is like you in every way. It is one who is perfectly opposite to you in every way! This is because Love is birthed from the synthesis of opposites-of dualities. Until you have worked through each of these zodiac pairs, through many lifetimes, you are not ready for your true soul mate. In the meantime, you are in training with each and every partner you have, learning to love all aspects of yourself equally. Each aspect acts as a beacon pointing towards your true nature as Love and light. Your partners reflect the ways in which you are not Loving yourself and you reflect their issues back to them. The more you can see yourself in your partners and love yourself for what you see, the more your true soul mate will Ďappearí in your current partner.


Relatie Astrologie | The Astro Investigatorsí Marriage Relatie Astrologie Research Project



Relatie Astrologie | Astro Investigators Hypothesis
The "Gators," have undertaken this research in the interest of beginning to unravel the complex astrological chemistry of Relatie Astrologie in birth data between two persons who make a commitment to "officially" marry each other. In this particular study, we have defined "marriage" as a legal pronouncement of marriage occurring between a man and a woman, regardless of how long their marriage may or may not have lasted. Our hypothesis is that there is much more to observe statistically through researching Marriage Relatie Astrologie than what can be described in simple, common statements like, "There must be a Venus-Mars or Zon-Maan-Angle contact or a strong 7th house between two people for a marriage to occur."


Relatie Astrologie | Data and Research Considerations



Our birth data comes from various verified sources: data that is readily available to the astrological community, data solicited by us through the questionnaire on our Gatorsí website [www.astroinvestigators.com], and data donated to us. We would like to thank all of the people who have contributed data to this project.


The research program that we are employing for all of our research is "Astro Investigator" by AIR Software. The current design of the software uses a precisely timed Natal chart for the reference or "inner" chart. The Relatie Astrologie or "outer" chart is treated as a "noon chart" in relation to the reference chart. Using the analogy of looking at a bi-wheel chart, we use the reference chart and its house cusps as the central chart, and place the planets of the Relatie Astrologie chart, calculated for noon, around the outside of the reference chart. Thus it is possible to research aspects and other events involving faster moving points like the angles (Ascendant and Midheaven), Vertex, Gelukspunt and Maan in the reference chart without using those points in the Relatie Astrologie chart. We can accomplish an accurate Relatie Astrologie study even if an exact time is known for only one of the two partners by putting the untimed chart around the outside of the chart with a known time.


Relatie Astrologie | Using the following Astrological Points in this study of Marriage Relatie Astrologie



For the inner, reference charts: Zon, Maan, Mercurius, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus, Neptunus, Pluto, Lunar Mean Noordelijke Maansknoop (hereafter referred to as the Noordelijke Maansknoop), Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, Ascendant, Descendant, Gelukspunt, East Point and the Vertex (21 total) For the outer, Relatie Astrologie charts: Zon, Mercurius, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus, Neptunus, Pluto, Noordelijke Maansknoop, Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta (15 total) Other parameters we have defined for this study are:


Using only the 5 Ptolemaic aspects (conjunction, sextile, square, trine and opposition) Using a 7-degree orb in our aspect studies Using the Placidus House System when incorporating houses Setting the critical limit for chi-square at 2.0 or above to be considered as having a statistically significant influence Setting the critical number of occurrences in our analyze group at 20 or above in order for an aspect to be considered as having a statistically significant influence Using a large number of control groups, generated using a random distributed age algorithm, to compare against each of our two data files being analyzed Ė 15 initially and later 20 for a second run of the study We used two gender-specific data files to create our "analyze group" (the group of files to be tested). One file contains 749 charts of men (Rodden Rating "B" or better) with birth dates ranging from Jan 29, 1874 - July 13, 1978, coupled with their female partnerís charts, calculated for noon, whose birth dates range from Nov. 28, 1873 to May 13, 1987. The other data file contains 829 charts of women (Rodden Rating "B" or better) with birth dates ranging from Mar 20 1831 - July 21, 1983, coupled with their male partnerís charts calculated for noon, whose birth dates range from May 22, 1813 to June 24, 1980. Both data files include instances in which persons may have been married more than once and may therefore be coupled with more than one spouse in the study.


Relatie Astrologie | Sharing our Results



One of our goals is to share our research results with the community at large in order allow astrologers and other researchers to view our findings to see whether or not they support common astrological axioms with statistical validity.


We are making the following tools available for free on The Gatorsí website so that everyone can easily sort and analyze all of our results for themselves:


an EXCEL spreadsheet (zipped) containing all of our result data a link to download Microsoftís free EXCEL Viewer, in the event that you donít have EXCEL installed on your computer AIR Softwareís AlmaFont to be able to view the astrological glyphs present in the EXCEL sheet, in the event that you donít have an AIR program installed on your computer. a 20-minute NetU2 MediaCam video showing the numerous ways you can filter and sort through the results in our EXCEL spreadsheet to find the statistical information in which you are interested a link to download the NetU2 MediaPlayer, in the event that you donít have this player installed on your computer Introduction to Our Observations


Relatie Astrologie | The Astro Investigator program



Developed by Alphee Lavoie and Sergey Tarasov, allows for a vast variety of chart factors to be analyzed and compared to a number of test groups that the program generates. Comparing to each group is like a "roll of the dice." In assessing what factors occur more often, or more seldom (which is also telling) to an extent which is "greater than chance" for a given population, those rolls represent "chance." The program lets you choose how many times you want to roll the dice. We ran the programís calculations on our file of married people initially with 15 rolls. Some of the Gators had already reported their observations based on those results before the study was run a second time with 20 rolls. We present results from both studies, noting whether the source of the findings was the15-roll or 20-roll set of results. At the conclusion of our reports, youíll see a discussion of the differences between the results of the two studies in the section entitled Duplicating The Study.


What we look for are not merely phenomena that occur with a high frequency, but a high frequency compared to what would be expected in a random population. Thatís what constitutes "statistical significance," or "greater than chance" occurrences. The extent to which a factor is present in a certain test population versus the control group(s) to which it is compared is measured on a scale known in statistics as "chi-square." The higher the chi-square number, the greater is the likelihood that the factor didnít occur coincidentally.


The Astro Investigator program generates random control groups by creating fictitious birth data from the same range of dates and places as the births of the data file of the group of charts being tested, referred to as the analyze group.


The program reports the results as the number of occurrences in the analyze group and then lists the average for the control groups as well as the range of occurrences in the control groups. For instance, the husbandís Juno conjunct the wifeís Juno occurred 61 times in our test group and on average 41 times (with a range of 31 to 52 times) in the 15 control groups. The program also designates whether the test groupís occurrence number is considered "Often", "Seldom" or of "No Influence" and what the chi-square number is. We can have high chi-square numbers for either Often or Seldom occurrences, but No Influence would, by definition, have a very low chi-square number. The program also expresses the degree to which an occurrence (whether Often or Seldom) is greater than chance in terms of a percentage. There is a direct correlation between the chi-square number and the Percentage Above Chance. The percentage is just another way of expressing the same concept, in terms that the average person can understand better. Chi-square is something that statisticians use but not usually the lay public. In the example above, it would say "Often" with a very high chi-square number of 9.8, for a "percent greater than chance" of 99.8. Thus we know itís much more than chance for that Relatie Astrologie aspect to occur in married couples.


The program lists the results but is not at present designed to allow sorting of the results by individual criteria. For that, we export the results into a spreadsheet.


We purposely set aside aspects between slow moving planets such as Neptunus sextile Pluto, which was present in the charts of people born for decades from the early 1940s through the remainder of the 20th Century. Using a 7-degree orb and considering that many people marry partners fairly close in age, the extremely high frequency of this aspect renders it less meaningful as a significant personal factor in Relatie Astrologie. For example, in our second running of the study (with 20 control groups), the wifeís Pluto sextile the husbandís Neptunus scored Often with a whopping 27.7 chi-square, reflective of the high number of people born in that date range. Also due to generational aspects, the husbandís Pluto conjunct the wifeís Neptunus is in the Seldom category with a high chi-square of 8.4.


The vast majority of the aspects from one partnerís chart to the others that we analyzed (2,338 of 3,126 = 75% in our first running of the data) showed NO INFLUENCE. Their occurrences were not significant statistically on either an Often or Seldom basis. But that leaves the other 25% to analyze.


As we went into this study, we hoped to see which of traditional astrologyís expectations for Relatie Astrologie hold up under the scrutiny of statistical analysis. Is there a strong likelihood for couples to have aspects between their Zons and Maans, or between their Mars and Venus placements? Do the Nodes factor in? What about the Ascendant (and thus the Descendant, by implication), or the Vertex? (Thatís the intersection in the west of two Great Circles, the Prime Vertical and the Ecliptic, thought by L. Edward Johndro and Charles Jaynes to indicate relationship circumstances that seem beyond oneís personal control.)


Our observations from our initial round of research are listed below. We plan to continue with follow-on studies. For instance, we did not check placements of one spouseís planets in the other spouseís houses, so that will be in the next round. This first project focused specifically on the Ptolemaic aspects between marriage partnersí natal planets.


Relatie Astrologie | Gatorsí Observations of Ptolemaic Aspects in Marriage Relatie Astrologie



Most Aspected Chart Points (based on the 20-roll study)


After Pluto, the ASC was the most "OFTEN" aspected point in the Male Natal Chart File. The trine occurred as the most "OFTEN" aspect in our Male Natal Chart File. The 3 most aspected "SELDOM" points in our Male Natal Chart File, in order, are: Uranus, Noordelijke Maansknoop and Mercurius. The square occurred as the most "SELDOM" aspect in our Male Natal Chart File. The top 4 most "OFTEN" aspected planets in our Female File were: Neptunus, Zon, Jupiter and Saturnus. Sextiel and Trine were the top 2 most "OFTEN" aspects in female natal charts. The infamous "marriage" asteroid, Juno came in as the lowest of the most "SELDOM" aspected points in our Female natal chart file. The Zon came in the highest. The square was the highest of the most "SELDOM" aspects in the female file, followed by the sextile. Zon Ė Overall, there are more aspects to the Zon than to any other planet. 1 There are 15 Often aspects and 13 Seldom aspects. Of these, there are 11 Often occurrences to the wifeís Zon and 9 Seldom occurrences to the wifeís Zon, compared to 4 Often occurrences to the husbandís Zon and only 4 Seldom occurrences to the husbandís Zon. It would appear therefore that the Zon is more significant an indicator for marriage in a womanís chart than in a manís. Neptunus, Mercurius and Juno are involved in the greatest number of aspects to the wifeís Zon. Mars, Uranus and Pallas are involved in the fewest number of aspects to her Zon.


Relatie Astrologie | After the Zon, Juno is the next most aspected heavenly body.



After the Zon, Juno is the next most aspected heavenly body. There are 10 Often occurrences and 5 Seldom occurrences. The occurrence frequencies are divided more evenly than the Zonís; Juno is a significant indicator of marriage for both men and women. The wifeís Zon and Mars Often oppose the husbandís Juno; the husbandís Venus, Mars and Mercurius Often trine the wifeís Juno.


Relatie Astrologie | The planet receiving the third greatest number of aspects is Jupiter.



Jupiter -The planet receiving the third greatest number of aspects is Jupiter. There are 12 Often occurrences, 9 aspecting the wifeís Jupiter. And there are 12 Seldom occurrences, 7 of which are aspects to the husbandís Jupiter.


Relatie Astrologie | Maan, Mars and Venus are all significant in the husbandís chart.



Maan, Mars and Venus are all significant in the husbandís chart, more so than the wifeís, as indicators of marriage: 6 of 8 Often occurrences for the Maan, 7 of 10 Often occurrences for Venus, and 8 of 10 Often occurrences for Mars are aspects to the husbandís natal planet.


1 Neptunus-to-Neptunus and Pluto-to-Pluto Conjuncties are excluded here.

Relatie Astrologie | Comparing Our Results to Classic Assumptions (based on the 20-roll study)



The classic assumption in astrology is that there must be a combination of Venus and/or Mars contact to one anotherís charts for good Relatie Astrologie between two people. The Gators study found only three Venus-Mars combinations with a chi-square of 2.0 or greater (our cut-off point) and they were either a sextile or trine:

The late John Willner was one of many astrologers who was quite outspoken about the absolute necessity in Relatie Astrologie for there to be at least one strong conjunction of either Zon-Maan-ASC in one chart to the Zon-Maan-ASC in the other. Since the set up for this research project cannot use fast moving points like the Ascendant, the Midheaven and the Maan in the second chart, letís take a look at the results for the second chartís Zon making a conjunction to any point in the primary chart. Here are our findings in order of the highest chi-squares:

her Noordelijke Maansknoop square his Noordelijke Maansknoop S 54 69 (57 .. 91) 3.3 92.8]
Noordelijke Maansknoop Often
In looking at the highest chi-square, we find the husbandís Vertex conjunct the Noordelijke Maansknoop of the wife, with chi-square of 14.1. The opposite Ė the wifeís Vertex opposing the husbandís Noordelijke Maansknoop Ė was the third highest nodal chi-square at 9.4. The Noordelijke Maansknoop of one partner square or opposite the Noordelijke Maansknoop of the other partner score high, 7.3 and 7.2, respectively. (This study did not discriminate between waxing or waning in the square aspect.)
Noordelijke Maansknoop Seldom
The top five chi-squares are trines and sextiles to the Node: Saturnus sextile 9.5, East Point sextile 5.6, Vertex trine 5.4, Uranus sextile 5.2, Noordelijke Maansknoop trine 4.5. The Noordelijke Maansknoopís highest Seldoms Ė three of which are Vertex, Noordelijke Maansknoop and East Point Ė involve contacts with points derived from Great Circles.





Relatie Astrologie | The Vertex is said by some to be an important factor in Relatie Astrologie. What influence does it have? Here are the top 10 results:



his Vertex conjunct her Noordelijke Maansknoop O 41 23 (15 .. 28) 14.1 100.0
her Vertex opposite his Noordelijke Maansknoop O 39 14 (17 .. 36) 7.8 99.8
his Vertex trine her Ceres O 64 46 (36 .. 55) 7.0 99.2
her Vertex conjunct his Zon O 38 26 (18 .. 33) 5.5 98.1
her Vertex trine his Noordelijke Maansknoop S 37 54 (44 .. 64) 5.4 97.9
his Vertex opposite Vesta S 13 24 (17 .. 32) 5.0 97.6
his Vertex sextile her Ceres S 32 47 (39 .. 63) 4.8 97.1
his Vertex conjunct her Uranus S 13 23 (18 .. 29) 4.3 96.3
her Vertex square his Venus S 40 55 (46 .. 63) 4.1 95.7
her Vertex opposite his Mercurius S 15 25 (15 .. 35) 4.0 95.5


The Vertex-Nodal involvement appears to be significant with the conjunction and opposition aspects but not with the trine. With the Vertex, there is the Anti-Vertex opposite it, just as the Zuidelijke Maansknoop is opposite the Noordelijke Maansknoop, so weíre dealing with an axis with their Conjuncties and Opposities, whereas that is not the case with the trines or sextiles. Her Vertex opposite his Noordelijke Maansknoop means her Vertex is conjunct his Zuidelijke Maansknoop, a point that weíre taught has to do with past life connections. The Often occurrence of her Vertex conjunct his Zon fits well with traditional teachings that Zon can represent a significant male in a womanís life.





Relatie Astrologie | Duplicating the Study



For our initial study, we used a set of 15 random control groups. We re-ran the study using 20 random control groups, essentially duplicating our own study, to determine if our initial results were consistently repeatable using the same test group of charts and, if not, to determine how many random control groups are needed to achieve reliable results. Control groups are generated fresh for each running of the study, so the control group average and range numbers change from study to study, impacting the chi-square number and "percentage above chance." If the second studyís results closely mimic the initial results, it indicates that the significant factors found in the initial study are indeed greater than chance since there were a lot more "rolls of the dice" to compare against.





Relatie Astrologie | Here are the top five husband and wife winners from the 15-roll study compared to the 20-roll study:

While some of the chi-square numbers in this comparison differ quite a bit, their "percentage greater than chance" numbers are often quite close. For each gender, 4 out of the 5 top scorers in the 15-roll study are also highly significant in the 20-roll study, a good indication of the reliability of the results.

It is a fascinating and illuminating study of how individuals interact with one another. Each individual is born with a personal birth chart, which is a map of the heavens for the moment they took their first breath. Some might say the birth chart has the effect of stamping, or imprinting, the energies of the planets and signs on an individual. Each and every one of us has all 10 planets and luminaries in our charts, but their positions by sign, house, and aspect are individual to each. When we interact with others, the individual energies of our natal charts form special relationships with their individual energies. The resulting interplay is as complex and unique as our own personalities. Many of us are familiar with the study of Sun Sign Compatibility. Some will ask, for example, "Does a Leo get along with a ?" While these comparisons have some value, they are very general. Many other factors are involved evaluating the compatibility of two people. Although Synastry is complex, we can turn to some especially useful methods of studying relationships that will help shed light on our interactions. Below are some valuable pointers. <br><br><br> <b>Synastry aspects</b> In Synastry, conjunctions between partners' planets and points represent a point of powerful interaction. Depending on the planets involved, there can be a strong feeling of similarity and recognition. The opposition represents polarity and the power of attraction. This can result in a feeling of complementing each other, but it can also bring out feelings of competition and insecurity. There can be a tendency to "seesaw" or "pingpong" with the oppositionwhen one person expresses their planet's energy, the other person counters with their side of the "equation". There is a countering effect here, and often a feeling of literally being "opposed" or thwarted. Sextiles and trines [generally considered "flowing" aspects] often suggest an ease at blending the two planets' or points' energies. There is often a warm and pleasant understanding and flow. These aspects do not necessarily generate attraction [as a conjunction might], but they are very supportive in a relationship. Trines generally indicate energies that combine well, while sextiles are usually points of compatibility that the couple notice and appreciate. Squares often point to energies that need work in order to integrate them easily into the interaction. While lack of understanding and frustration can be the result, they can also create just the right amount of tension to produce excitement in a relationship. Growthoriented individuals will find that these "discordant" energies can spur them to new heights of understanding. While it is helpful to consider any one interchart aspect carefully, it is also illuminating to consider the signs involved in the interaction. For example, squares between planets occupying mutable signs [Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces] can point to problems that are expressed in fussiness, restlessness, nagging, and pickiness. Frequent annoyances and irritations, often that skirt the real conflict, are common. Between cadent signs [Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn], conflicts are more likely to be stormy, direct, and overtoccasional big fights are typical. Between fixed signs [Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius], there can be frequent standoffs. Of course, not all squares occur between planets in the same modality, but these examples serve as a general guideline. <br><br><br> <b>Ascendant in Synastry</b> The Ascendant expresses our "body ego" how we express ourselves through our body language and personal mannerisms. It also shows how we cope with the daily demands of life, our first reactions, and how we initiate projects. Naturally, when the Ascendant of one person's chart contacts the planets [or Ascendant] of another, the reaction is immediate and, often, apparent. While it is common enough that there can be an attraction to the physical body, it is more than likely a reaction to the Ascendant person's whole body egothe manner in which he | she comes across, or the "packaging". <br><br><br> <b>Sun in Synastry</b> Where does your Sun fall in another person's chart? When you overlay your Sun onto the chart of your partner, you can gain plenty of insight into how you affect that person, and what areas of their life you take particular interest in. The basic idea is this</b> If your Sun is at, say, 3 degrees of Leo, what house would your Sun occupy in your partner's chart? <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 1st House</b> You can't help but notice each other! Generally, this overlay generates approval between the two more specifically, your approval and affection for your partner is welcomed by your partner, offering a pleasant feeling of being able to be open and free in your presence. You give each other an ego boost, and this overlay tends to offer relationships a feeling of camaraderie and general agreement. You awaken all sorts of issues in your partner, and his or her very identity is on the line in this relationship. You energize and stimulate your partner, making him or her more self-aware. In turn, you feel more valuable, recognized, vital, and important as a result of your partner's reactions to you. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 2nd House</b> This position does not indicate a feeling of being true peers as the first or eleventh houses, for example, bestow. Because the second house is associated with the phrase "I want", there is a general sense that there is something concrete to be gained through the couple's association with this overlay. You may feel that you are an object rather than a person in your partner's eyes, or a means to an end. Possessiveness should be avoided, as this can lead to either person feeling stifled. In a sexual relationship, there is likely to be considerable desire, but, again, be sure to avoid treating each other as if you own them. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 3rd House</b> This placement is particularly helpful when you are in close contact with each other on a day-to-day basis, as you tend to feel comfortable with each other's ways of dealing with everyday life. Your partnership is generally easygoing. You are seen by your partner as someone who stimulates him or her. This is a somewhat superficial overlay, and if you are looking to be taken more seriously as a partner, check out where your Moon falls in your partner's chart. If it is also found in an outgoing house, you may not have a very profound impact on your partner emotionally. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 4th House</b> This position promotes a powerful connection. A very basic sense of shared identity is felt between you and your partner. You have a strong desire to protect and defend your partner, and there is a feeling that you will always be in each other's corner. You affect your partner deeply, and your partner is likely to be very sensitive to your actions. Your partner is likely to feel a strong bond, and might feel somewhat dependent on you for emotional support. This is an intimate and personal connection, and it is not always a rational one. In fact, you may stimulate the inner child of your partner, and he or she may not always respond to you in ways that make sense. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 5th House</b> This is generally considered to be an excellent position for romance and fun. You bring out your partner's creativity and sense of fun. Often this pair has a strong interest in making children together, although difficult aspects of the Sun to the partner's planets can point to children as being a source of conflict in the relationship; or, if children are not the issue, your partner may feel stifled by your overpowering need to be the only one who gives him | her pleasure. Jealousies and possessiveness can result, and it generally works both ways, though you may display these things more than your partner. Your partner views you as a vehicle through which he or she can have fun, and perhaps as an ego boost. The success of this relationship will depend much on how you respond to this. This is a creative and dynamic overlay, with plenty of romantic attraction and the promise of some truly pleasurable leisure time together. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 6th House</b> This overlay is an interesting, multi-faceted one. For some reason, your partner's day-to-day affairs become your business. In some way, you help organize your partner's life, or vice versa, and want to know the little things that make up their day. Sometimes it is a conscious thing, and you take pleasure in it. Other times, it is hard to explain why you become so involved in your partner's everyday life. This relationship can be an imbalanced, unequal partnership. The danger with this position is that you can become bossy or prying if it's not kept in check, and your partner may feel somewhat dependent on you. Avoid dictating your partner's every move, even if your partner seems to want it. Eventually, the imbalance in your relationship can be a source of resentment. At your best, you show your affection for your partner by doing little things for them or giving them sound advice. At your worst, you end up criticizing the little things that they do. How this position is handled can often be shown by the aspects that the Sun makes to the partner's planets. Difficult aspects can point to a relationship that is imbalanced, eventually turning into a burden. However, flowing aspects can suggest a relationship in which one or the other takes on a helpful role. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 7th House</b> This overlay is a magnetic one. This is one of the more powerful overlays in synastry, resulting in a very natural union between two people. Your partner views you as his or her ideal partner. The main caution here, however, is that the union is so powerful that individual identities can feel as if lostwhere exactly you and your partner start and finish may be quite blurred. What starts out as a powerful and natural union might deteriorate into a union comprised of resentment and competitiveness. Although your partner may see you as an ideal mate, you may not reciprocate those feelings in the same way. In some way, you help your partner learn about himself or herself through the relationship. This is because your partner sees in you traits that he or she is unconsciously drawn to in order to effect an inner sense of balance. Compromise is the keyword of this position, as both of you try to maintain balance and harmony in the relationship. Be careful not to let thisdesire for balance degenerate into a "tit for tat" attitude toward one another. Your partner is not as willing to "share" you with others, preferring some sort of commitment or for the relationship to be one-on-one. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 8th House</b> There is a deep fascination with your partner, and either you simply feel unsettled in his | her presence and part ways, or you feel inexplicably drawn to him | her. There is nothing superficial about this union, when it does occur, and you should be prepared for a deep and sometimes disturbing interaction. The attraction on your partner's side is most obvious. You affect your partner in very deep, even primal, ways. As a result, your partner is especially sensitive to your actions. He or she views the partnership as a profound and intimate connection. You may or may not feel the same way about him or her. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 9th House</b> Your partner sees you as a person with whom he or she can seek agreement and affirmation for his or her own belief systems. This is a somewhat intellectual partnership, one built on shared visions and ideals. You impact your partner in such a way that his or her belief systems are transformed. You open up a whole new way of looking at the world in your partner, inspiring and motivating him or her to see the world differently, take a few risks, enjoy different cultures, and to be a little more adventurous. You also have the effect of fueling your partner's confidence, and to look beyond the drudgery of daily existence, to dream, and to do more. You expand your partner's horizons, either mental or physical horizons, or both! You stimulate a more adventurous spirit in your partner. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 10th House</b> You take great interest in your partner's place in society whether that be his or her job or general status. Sometimes this indicates that your partner perceives you to be in a position of authority or status, and he or she naturally tends to follow you along, deferring to that "authority". Some tensions can occur with this position, simply because there isn't a feeling of equality in this relationship. You may feel like an object, or a vehicle, rather than a person, and how you handle your partner's dependency on you can make or break the relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 11th House</b> Your partner gets the strong feeling that you are someone with whom he or she can share common pleasures and goals. You are your partner's buddy and comrade, and you fully appreciate spending fun leisure times together. This position offers a wonderful theme of tolerance and acceptance. Neither one of you is judging the other. Problems can occur if you are looking for a tighter, more intimate bond with your partner. He or she might not see you as more than a good friend. <br><br><br> <b>Your Sun in your partner's 12th House</b> This overlay can be a confusing one. There can be a general sense of mistrust that stems from misunderstanding. In some cases, you might be very fascinated with your partner, as if he or she marches to the beat of a different drummer. However, you may not "get" what he or she is all about, ultimately, and you should avoid finding irrational reasons to mistrust your partner as a result of this. Your actions will have a profound emotional impact on your partner, as you pull up many emotions in him or her. There may be a sense in your partner of having to give up something or to make sacrifices, as being together can bring up some level of pain or heartache, and possibly the need to be secret and private. The relationship can just as easily be very spiritually rewarding. <br><br><br> .<br> <b>Venus in Synastry</b> <br><br><br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Aries</b> When your Venus is 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 someoneyou 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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 welland 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! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> 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! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> 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 ticketin 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 topicyou! 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> 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 folkjust 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> 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 directeven aggressiveapproach 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 reasonyou 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> 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 termthe 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 stimulatingeven invigoratingpairing. 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> 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</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> 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 challengeand 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aries | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> 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 loveso 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". <br><br><br> ..<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Taurus</b> When your Venus is in Taurus, your needs in love are largely determined by the pleasing of your senses. The first of the earth signs, Taurus is very physical. You are sensually inclined not sensation-oriented like Aries, but rather keenly tuned in to the world of the physical five senses. [The sixth sense belongs to the Water signs!] To understand the Venusian Taurus nature, it is helpful to think of three "S" words that Taurus values</b> sensuality, stability, and satisfaction. You are somewhat conventional in matters of the heart, with a strong sense of commitment and purpose. You are not romantic in a frilly or dreamy way, yet you certainly have the sense of the romantic when it comes to honoring others and surrounding partnerships in simple luxuries. You are practical, and relationships are taken seriously. This does not necessarily mean that you are incapable of having one-night-stands or the like, but a partnership means a lot to you and you don't take your responsibilities lightly. You have a strong, constant love nature, and you offer loved ones much comfort in your stability. You seek out security through partnership. You tend to hold on to partnerships, and you place basic security needs over emotional or spiritual needs. As a result, others may see you as a rock, or they can easily get frustrated that you overlook the nuances of the relationship, depending on the audience. Your tastes are well-developed, and you prefer to surround yourself with things that feel luxurious and comfortable, yet simple. Your taste in home decor reflects your own love nature! Satisfaction is important to you, and your lover's physical presence is demanded. Unless Venus is strongly aspected to Neptune, for example, you are very much concerned with all that is physical, often completely ignoring the spiritual needs of your partner and relationship. You are persevering and you are not afraid to wait if you know you are likely to get your prize! Changes make you unsettled, and you react to any sudden changes in the course of your relationship by digging in your heels. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> While you are more than capable of taking things slow, your partner craves instant gratification in love. 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. Because your partner gets off on excitement and challenge, he or she might find you a tad slow, or even dull, in your approach to romance. You are very focused on sensual pleasures and comforts, while your lover's style is more utilitarian. You are a peace lover [although you won't shrink from any argument], and you look for harmony in your environment, but "harmony" looks rather monotonous in your partner's eyes. This is a very passionate pairing, and your partner, at least on the surface of things, is likely to be the leader or aggressor in this relationship. Still, however receptive you are, you are nonetheless a force to be reckoned with in your own right! You are strong, and it can be very difficult to nudge you out of your 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 are not afraid of, and your partner actually enjoys, a challenge! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Your similarities in terms of needs and styles in love can be both pleasing and difficult. Both of you are earthy, sensual lovers. Love for you both is a tangible, sensual experience, and neither of you takes relationships lightly. Safety and comfort are important in your love relationships, and your partner feels the same way. You will more than likely agree about what to spend your money on, if you share finances, and how to decorate your home, if you share space. Because you are alike in matters of the heart, however, there can be some difficulties with clashes of will and stubbornness. Both of you are rather passive, although magnetic, so it may be a little difficult to get things off the ground. Certainly, if things do get off the ground, the relationship has a powerful chance to last. There may be a tendency to inactivity when you are together, simply because each of you is rather self-satisfied and content. Watch that the relationship doesn't get itself into a rut, and that communication is kept alive. Nevertheless, your shared commitment, tastes, and needs can help cement a relationship that is rewarding to you both. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! You are a steady person in love, very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. Your partner tends to live in the moment when it comes to love, and is an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. Your partner values verbal exchanges, while you value stability and security. Your lover shows his or her love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. You, on the other hand, are less concerned about variety and fun than you are with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to you, and both constancy and physical presence do as well. Your partner might complain that you take what he | she says seriously, and wants to hold him or her to it. Your partner's moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and he or she doesn't like being pinned down. When you are in need of regeneration, you tend to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When your lover is distressed or out of whack, he or she wants to be able to talk it through. He or she enjoys new experiences and environments, while you are not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when your partner is unsure, he or she can find great strength in you; and you can certainly enjoy your partner's wit and social easehe or she is wonderful company. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> You instantly sense a seriousness and warmth in your partner that you are drawn to. The dependability your partner senses in your style appeals to him or her as well. You are a person your partner can truly feel safe and comfortable with, and that is important for him or her. You will appreciate your partner's warmth, as much of it is tangible. Although your partner tends to be the more emotional of the two, you can help your partner to feel more secure than most people. Security is most important to both of you! The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned, and too predictable. You don't readily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and your partner is certainly an intuitive person. Your Venus in Cancer partner sometimes needs to be pushed and prodded in order to open up, and because that does not come naturally to you, communication can suffer as a result. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and your partner might feel you are a little too stubborn for his or her liking. You revel in sensual pleasures, as does your partner, and ultimately you are most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please your partner! Once your partner has gained your trust and loyalty, you can be like the Rock of Gibraltaryou could be exactly what your partner needs to steady his or her sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe his or her fears. It would be wise to try to understand your partner's occasional moodiness in love. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> Your partner senses your steadfastness and staying power, admiring your strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be somewhat flirtatious and playful, and you might misinterpret this behavior as disloyalty. You are inclined to be somewhat possessive, but you must understand that your partner is actually quite loyal. He or she simply enjoys attention. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means each of you tends to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and your partner senses that you will give him or her just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. Your partner might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama ["I absolutely need to buy this"]. The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although you appreciate the finer things in life, just like your partner does, you put more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love...ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your partner's willingness to make adjustments. You tend to be a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that your partner offers any relationship. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, you are more capable of calming your partner's nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make him or her feel whole and scads more comfortable in his or her own skin. Your partner is sure to appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds you. You sense your lover's commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to your partner in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and you always appreciate this work ethic, although you have to watch that your partner doesn't take on too much of the hard work. Although your lover is rather humble in matters of the heart, he or she needs to feel appreciated. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take a rather practical and earthy approach to love, your partner inclines to be intellectual about it [your lover thinks and talks a lot about his or her relationship]. All too often, Earth signs [including Taurus], interpret the intellectual approach to love typical of Air signs as either lacking in sincerity or disloyalty. Your lover can easily become frustrated with your seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. You are sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time your partner invests in your relationship, although you may eventually question whether his or her approach is actually getting results. You see, you are far more interested in what works in lovewhat you see in tangible terms. What "could be", "would be", or "might be" doesn't pull much weight with you. With a natural inclination to see where a relationship needs adjustment, your partner is usually more than willing to compromisea trait that might be considered a necessity with you, as you are not the most flexible of lovers. Your partner's thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied attitude. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful. Mutual respect and tolerance will be important in order to make this partnership work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnershipsor each othereasily. Your partner tends to be more intense about his or her attachments than you are, and your overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your partner's emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other's strong personality and willingness to commit. Your partner senses in you the ability to "go the distance", and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to both of you, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. You may find your partner overly complex, while your partner might consider your needs too simple! Your desire is for peace and stability, while your partner thrives on boat-rocking from time to time. Your partner tends to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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. Your partner enjoys having fun in love, and is capable of infusing your relationship with heaps of excitement. Excitement in a partnership is not as important to you. In fact, in your book, stability and predictability are attractive qualities of any partnership. Your partner is a risk-taker in love [and finances!], while you tend to play it safe. You dig in your heels and get comfortable, and your partner has his or her sights on bigger things. A tendency to believe that the grass is always greener somewhere else is something that can easily frustrate you, as your needs are quite simple and contentment is your goal. Your possessiveness can create serious problems in this partnership. Your partner is a much happier and giving person when he or she feels free. Enjoy your partner's spirited attitude toward love and partnership. At the same time, it would be wise for your lover to understand your 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other's interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart [and the bank account] can do wonders for any partnership. Your partner is more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and he or she may sometimes find you a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to the both of you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! You are somewhat more traditional in your view of partnerships. You value constancy and dependability in your relationships. On the other hand, your partner resists doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new track rather than traveling along the "beaten track". You want your love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. Your partner knows how to stick with things, as you do, and isn't especially attracted to complications as well. However, he or she doesn't find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn't seem to be going somewhere. Ideally, you'll find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your partner's quirkiness can be fun and even electric. You can remind your partner how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Taurus | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. You are strong and dependable in relationshipsperhaps exactly what your partner needs, at least most of the time! Your lover doesn't always feel strong, simply because he or she is a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as yourself will help ground your lover. He or she is certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships. You might find that your lover views your dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on his or her mood. Sometimes, your lover considers you to be a bit too set in your ways. Other times, he or she will fully appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your needs in partnership. Your partner is likely to take great comfort in knowing that he or she can lean on you when need be. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. You might sometimes complain that your lover is indecisive or too changeablemoody, perhaps. But if you recognize that his or her tenderness [something that you are sure to value] is an absolute constant, you are sure to "overlook" his or her seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well. <br><br><br> ...<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Gemini</b> When your Venus is in Gemini, you look for lively relationships with plenty of activity and communication. When you are in love, you make light and witty company, even if your Sun is in a more serious sign like Taurus or Cancer. You look for a partner who can hold a real conversation. Scratch thatyou want somebody who can talk about multiple subjects in a short period of time. When you're in love, you can be a real tease! You flirt, joke, and cajoleand you turn others on with the promise that love will be fun with you. I'd like to take this opportunity to address the reputation Gemini has for being somewhat dishonest. Evasive, yes, but dishonest is off the mark. Venusian Geminis are not in touch with their feelings enough to give a concrete answer when they are cornered. Or perhaps you can say that they are so mentally stimulated that they are more aware than most of all of the possible answers or reasons. So, if you are asked by your partner, "Why have you been avoiding me?", for example, your answer may seem to have been pulled out of a hat. The truth is, you don't always know the answer right away, but you are so communicative that a response comes out of you anyhow. Neither are you the type to excuse yourself to soul-search, then get back to your lover with a meaningful answer. You're always quick to reply. This quality is often misinterpreted as insincerity. You are not the most sentimental of lovers, although you do have a wonderful way with words. You value exchanging and sharing ideas in a partnership, and a good conversation makes powerful foreplay for you! Your urge for freedom and variety in love, coupled with a tendency to skirt intense topics, can lead some partners to think that you're as substantial as cotton candy. Although some Venus in Gemini people go through lovers like Kleenex, just to avoid the frightening thought of having to commit oneself to only one partner, most are very capable of loyalty in the long-term. They simply want their relationships to be interesting. Commitment, to you, doesn't mean things have to be dull. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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. You are more intellectual than your partner, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, you are in the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with your lover. Your partner does enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticketin fact, if the talk drags on too long, your lover finds 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. Your partner can easily become impatient with your indecisiveness. As well, your partner finds it disconcerting when your conversations stray from the most favorite topichim | her! 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! Your partner is a steady person in love. He | she is very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. You tend to live in the moment when it comes to love, and are an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. You value verbal exchanges, while your partner values stability and security. You show your love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. Your partner, on the other hand, is less concerned about variety and fun than he | she is with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to your partner. Your constancy and physical presence does as well. You might complain that your partner takes what you say seriously, and wants to hold you to it. Your moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and you don't like being pinned down. When your partner is in need of regeneration, he | she tends to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When you are distressed or out of whack, you want to be able to talk it through with your partner. You enjoy new experiences and environments, while your partner is not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when you are down or unsure, you can find great strength in your rock-solid partner; and your partner can certainly enjoy your wit and social easeyou are wonderful company. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Gemini</b> Because both of you have similar needs in relationships, your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the Venusian Gemini position! You will be pleased with your partner's willingness to talk, have fun, and ability to liven up a rainy day. Together you can enjoy some wonderful cerebral moments as well as lighter entertainment. Your relationship is less likely than most to get clouded over with possessiveness or jealousies, although it can certainly run hot and cold at times! Both of you get turned on quicklyand turned off just as rapidly. If you're not on the same cycle, which is bound to happen from time to time, there can be quite a few stormy moments! For this reason, this pairing is probably more suitable for a shorter affair than a long-term commitment, unless there are stronger connections [some boosts from Saturn, for example] between your charts. Nevertheless, the relationship can be very lively and interesting. Both of you are insatiably curious, and your interests can change quickly. Many partners have difficulty understanding this trait [they can easily find it threatening], but your partner should, at least in theory, identify with you on this level. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, and vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. Your partner has a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. His | her memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding, and extremely flattering! Your partner cherishes you, showering you with his | her concern and caring gestures. Your style in love is more cerebral than your partner's. Your partner is fascinated with your often cheerful disposition, your flexibility, and your intelligent charm. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. You are flirtatious with your partner, and your teasing is actually a true show of love. Until your partner recognizes this, it can be difficult for him | her to feel nurtured and cared for. Your lover is sensitive in matters of the heart, although he | she doesn't always want to show it. More than likely, your partner will play along with your lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. You believe that any problem can be solved by talking it through. Your partner will certainly try to work through problems with you, but, in his | her heart, believes in and values a more emotional bonda bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it is defined with words. Your partner shows love through gestures and commitment, and may leave you wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, you will be able to lean on your lover for emotional support and value his | her ability to make you feel safe. This is important because you can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments in your life. Your partner will appreciate your flexibility more than anything, and reward you with a commitment that is difficult to break. Try to pay more attention to tenderness in your exchanges with your lover, as this can only strengthen the bond between you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful loverssome might even say childlike! Your love of variety, however, may leave your partner feeling a little threatened, simply because your partner desires to be the center of your attention! When you are in love, you enjoy talking, and your lover will appreciate the easy flow of communication between you. Your partner's immense need for security in partnership may surface as what appears to be downright jealousy, especially since you don't appear [to the naked eye, at least] to be the most loyal or steadfast of partners. When your partner feels insecure or threatened, he | she is given to melodrama. Because this is not your nature in love, you don't fully understand this kind of behavior, and you might even find your partner's displays somewhat amusing and entertaining! As fun as your partner is at times, constancy is more important to him | her than it is to you. Your lover might interpret your need for variety and stimulation as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and [mostly] positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> Because your partner values intelligence and communication in a partner, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Virgo partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to both of you, you may be less discriminating than your partner in terms of who you communicate withas well as what you talk about. Your partner comes alive in an established relationship. You, on the other hand, require a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to your partner for mental stimulation. This is healthy for you, but it may be somewhat intimidating for your lover, as he | she prefers to be the most indispensable person in your life. You have a rather happy-go-lucky disposition in love, and you love to tease and joke. Your lover tends to be more sensitive in matters of the heart, and might take some of your cajoling a little too seriously for your liking. You thrive on variety, and you tire easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. Your partner is quite restless as well, but is at his | her best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although you can take this to a greater extreme than your partner and this can make him | her feel uncomfortable. If your Venus in Virgo lover begins to question your sincerity and constancy, remind your partner how much you appreciate your relationship. Thoughtfulness might make all the difference! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounce and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You will certainly fill your partner's need for communication, as he | she thrives on feedback. There can be considerable respect between you. You enjoy plenty of social and mental stimulationthe more variety, the better and so does your Venusian Libra partner! However, your partner's focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while you are not so specific in your needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may complain that you are not as romantic as he | she is, and that you are a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with your wit. You may wonder why your partner seems to need you to spend a lot of time together. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. Nevertheless, this relationship can contain markedly less of the jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperating with each other is a piece of cake! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers [albeit in completely different ways!], and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. You are a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that you flirt with everyone, but you do infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into your relationship. Your partner's love nature is intense. He or she craves intimacy, and when intimacy is threatened, your partner can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which your partner attempts to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio he or she is. Your partner knows how to push your buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. Your partner wants your soul, not just your body! You have an entirely different view of partnership. You want it to be fun, while your partner will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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. Your partner tends to be more passionate than you in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting his or her partner 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. Your partner values honesty from a lover, while you value 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. You have a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than your partner, and you can certainly help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity. Your partner is rather concerned about commitment, and often plans for the future. He | she is sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. Your partner likes his or her solitude, and you like your space. If you can avoid feeling threatened by your partner's need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of your many and varied interests, this can work well. This partner is more able to handle your quips and teasing than others, although he or she might complain that your head is in the clouds. His or her feet are definitely on the ground, but your partner does not shy away from ambition. You might find your partner downright boring. This isn't to say your partner is boring, but you do favor a livelier, more active partner than him or her. Your lover might be inclined to think you are as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You will find that your partner, more than most people, understands your tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but your partner appreciates your changeability. Your partner, however, is more stubborn than you are. Your moods change quickly, and while your partner can hardly be labeled predictable, he or she is not as flexible as you are. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, you will probably be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterizes your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while you work on keeping things fresh, your partner will help steady you. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Gemini | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your desire for communication is strong, and your partner, too, wants to connect with a partner. However, you put more value in mental stimulation and your partner values the power of understatement in romance. While you prefer everything to be defined, your partner has a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. Your partner relies on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering him or her for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get you very farperhaps only frustrated! Your energy leaves your partner unsettled at times, while his or her elusiveness can be difficult for you to understand. Your playfulness may, at times, unnerve your rather sensitive partner, although he or she is generally forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairingboth of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place. <br><br><br> ....<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Cancer</b> When your Venus is in Cancer, you look for security and safety in partnership. You are the most caring and nurturing of lovers. Your lover is likely to be flattered by your excellent memory for all they say and doin some cases, he or she could be intimidated as well! Sincerity from your partner is important to you, and you are attracted to people who you consider to be natural and genuine. You are the most intuitive of lovers, finding it easy to "read" your partner's character and feelings. As mentioned above, this can be flattering to many, and cause for concern for others! Which, of course, is fine by you, because the ideal partner for you is comfortable in his or her own skin. Anyone threatened by your "feelers" may not be sincere enough for you! Appreciation, security, and tenderness are most important to you in matters of the heart. You work hard at accommodating the people you love, taking care of them in every way you can. Because you are not very comfortable with confrontations, you are prone to side-stepping problems. You are easily hurt, but you can work hard at concealing that fact. It is difficult for you to forget any kinds of actions that you consider betrayals on the part of your lover, but you are not one to run away from your commitments. You would benefit from expressing your hurts instead of letting them stew inside of you. In many cases, your partner may not even know that they've hurt you! Your charm is of the understated kind, and you may not always know just how attractive you are to others! The truth is, no matter how you come across, you fairly ooze sweetness to members of the opposite sex. Of course, not everyone will find that quality attractive, but to those that do, you can be irresistible. It can be difficult for people to stay angry with you. This may be because you have mastered the "art" of playing innocent! You are especially attracted to neediness, and you might work hard at keeping the people you love in a state of needing you. Their dependency on you feeds you, making you feel loved, but you can have a love-hate relationship with that dependency over time. In some cases, Venus in Cancer people might wonder if they've created a monster! You do get off on taking care of your lover, often at the expense of your own needs. It would be helpful if you could detach yourself from some of the problems of your loved ones, even just a little, and recognize that you are not responsible for others' happiness. This concept is difficult for you to learn. You understand it, but living by it is a completely different thing. You observe your partner very closely, and the love you offer holds the rare quality of cherishing. [See Venus in Cancer for more details on the Venus in Cancer temperament]. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> This combination definitely makes for a bit of an odd couple! Your Venus is Moon-ruled, while your partner's is Mars-ruled. There is a distinct difference between what is important to you in love, and what your partner considers important. Your partner rides high on spontaneity, and is quite open in his or her expression of feelings, if not a little erratic. You tend to take your time when it comes to both expressing feelings and moving a relationship forward. You are often defensive with your feelings, while your partner is 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 you, but your partner expresses love in a more direct, aggressive manner. His or her assertive style can border on being downright inconsiderate, which is the polar opposite of how you treat a loved one! Your lover wants instant gratification and doesn't have much patience for beating around the bush, but you often require others to gently and subtly coax you to open up and express your 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, your partner may become an expert at infusing your relationship with energy and excitement, and you can offer the support and security that doesn't come naturally to your partner. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> The dependability you sense in your Venus in Taurus lover is appealing to you. This is a person you can truly feel safe and comfortable with. Your partner will appreciate your warm, even practical style of expressing love. Although you tend to be the more emotional of the two, your partner can help you to feel more secure than most signs. The risk here will be that the relationship becomes too patterned, and too predictable. Your partner doesn't easily respond to indirect expressions of feeling, and is not as intuitive as you are. He or she is not the type who will push and prod you to open up, and as a result, communication can suffer. You will likely agree about issues surrounding family and finances. Both of you are committed to creating a comfortable environment and building a solid future. Flexibility, however, can be lacking in this partnership, and you might feel your partner is a little too stubborn for your liking. He or she revels in sensual pleasures, as do you, and ultimately is most satisfied with strong, permanent alliances. This is sure to please you! Once you've gained his or her trust and loyalty, your lover can be like the Rock of Gibraltarhe or she might be exactly what you need to steady your sometimes swirling emotions and to calm and soothe your fears. Stubborn and inflexible moments aside, this partnership has great potential for stability and longevity. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, as well as vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. You have a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. Your memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding! You cherish your partner, showering him or her with your concern and caring gestures. Your partner's style in love is more cerebral, and his or her cheerful disposition, flexibility, and intelligent charm can fascinate you. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. Your partner is flirtatious with you, and his or her teasing is actually a true show of love. Until you recognize this, it can be difficult for you to feel nurtured and cared for. You are sensitive in matters of the heart, although you don't always want to show it. More than likely, you will play along with your partner's lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. Your partner believes that any problem can be solved by talking it through. You will certainly try to work through problems, but, in your heart, you believe in and value a more emotional bonda bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it were to be defined with words. You show love through practical gestures as well as commitment, and may leave your partner wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, your partner will be able to lean on you for emotional support and will value your ability to make him or her feel safe. This is important because your partner can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments. You are likely to appreciate your partner's flexibility more than anything, and you will reward your lover with a commitment that is difficult to break. Your partner needs to consciously pay more attention to tenderness in his or her exchanges with you, as this can only serve to strengthen the bond between you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Cancer</b>Both of you are protective, caring lovers. Because you share the same Venusian sign, both of your strengths and your weaknesses in relationships are highlighted! Sentimentality will run high in your partnership. Others will find you the most caring, sweetest of couples. You are inclined to dote on one another, offering sympathy to your partner, and gathering sympathy from him or her as well. The problem can be too much of a good thing! All of that mothering each other probably needs a bit of structure and discipline or you could get carried away with emotions. Both of you are moody in love, and in terms of sensitivity, you've met your match! You are likely to agree on commitment to family and security, and you'll be very devoted to each other. There is a tendency for both of you to be somewhat shy in love, and, as a result, this relationship may be a little difficult to initiate or get off the ground. However, once you're past the perhaps awkward initial phases of the romance, and you are sure of your mutual feelings, commitment to one another is easy and solid. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> While you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and settled, your partner thrives onand wants to be consumed withthe desire and passion of love. Your lover easily feels threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down! You demonstrate your love in subtle ways, revealing sincere concern about how your partner is doing and tending to his or her basic emotional needs. Your partner will appreciate this attention and your sentimentality, but might feel threatened by your lack of "showiness". Your partner might find your mood swings in love rather disconcerting, and you may question your lover's commitment, finding his or her flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Your partner is, in reality, fiercely loyal, and flirtatiousness is actually fueled by the need for flattery as well as an infatuation with feeling attractive. Until you understand and accept this, you can easily find your partner's behavior distressing! Your subtle, and oftentimes indirect, approach in love can be confusing for your more frank and direct partner. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs and planets! Because these signs are "next door neighbors", they don't share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship...for you, to build a sense of safety and comfort, and for your partner, to build confidence. What you need to understand is that your lover has his or her ego tied up in relationships your partner lives for love and romance! You will appreciate your lover's sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your partner's appetite for attention and affection, you more than anyone are likely to make him or her feel special. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationshipperhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner's mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environmentexactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner's approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b>Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. You express your love in a distinctly personal manner, while your partner is definitely more intellectually inclined, and his or her manner can seem particularly impersonal in your eyes. Your partner is adept at honing in on what you need and what makes you uncomfortableso much so that he or she might change their style completely in order to keep the peace. Your partner will quickly feel you out and get to know that you are a more sensitive soul than most. The risk here is that both of you might compromise your own needs in order to avoid hurting each other's feelings, thereby maintaining the status quo. Both of you value harmony. You are capable of putting up huge walls around yourself, and communication is utterly critical to your partner's sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more your partner presses you partner for the feedback he or she thrives on, the more you may be inclined to withdraw. As charming as your partner is, he or she might be able to coax you out of your shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. Your partner will find you extraordinarily caring and supportive, and you will be thrilled at how willing your lover is to accommodate you and to compromise! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similarand familiarvein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel "at home". Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to your partner, and you sense an all-encompassing love in your lover that appeals to you. At times, that love can feel all-consuming, but this doesn't scare you like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love you give is rather similar, and your Venus in Scorpio lover doesn't fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, he or she lives for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your reaction to hurts is often internalized, while your partner can grow cold and unresponsive when he or she feels slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b>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 you are at your best in a relationship that feels safe and secure, your partner is unhappy when a relationship becomes too predictable or confining. You show your love through your attention and caring, and this wonderful quality can sometimes feel lost on your more free-wheeling partner. Relationships that support growth in all directions are what gets your partner high and happy. He or she needs 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 partner's best quality, but it is certainly your department! Intimacy, for you, is intoxicating. Rejection is your worst fear! If the love is there, your partner is certainly capable of committing, but his or her style may rub you the wrong way until you understand that it is just thata style. Freedom and energy are important "ingredients" in a satisfying relationship in your lover's eyes, and no amount of coercing or theatrics will change those needs. However, if you can put some faith [one of Sagittarius' favorite words!] in your partner, and give him or her some freedom of movement, you won't feel the need for tactics in order to keep your lover with you. If this relationship is allowed the time and space to grow, you can have some great fun with your lover, and he or she can certainly benefit from your more tender, emotional touch. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> Opposites attract, and you and your partner's Venus [love] signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while your partner is more practically inclined. He or she prefers to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of "feeling each other out", and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each otheryou in a nurturing way and your partner in a practical sense. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other's differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your "lists" in the relationship department! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. You want a relationship that is very personal and committed, while your partner is more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination of the differences between you. There's a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a softer charm, while your partner's charm is a little more direct and offbeat. Your partner's behavior can be unsettling to you, simply because you are looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. Your lover is a freedom-lover, and his or her love may seem universal and impersonalthe style doesn't hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that you crave. Your tendency to wrap yourself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating for your Venus in Aquarius partner, but can cause a problem if your lover interprets it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other's needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this pairing going. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Cancer | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. You want to take care of the people you love, offering them security and love, and your partner is particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is this fundamental difference between your love natures</b> you are more clannish and personal in your affections, while your partner tends toward universal love. The sensitivity he or she expresses doesn't always make you feel special, as you sometimes may sense that your partner is in love with mankind in general, not just you! You may find yourself desiring to redirect your partner's love into more focused channels. He or she may easily fall for the underdog, and you may feel that your partner needs a little directing in this respect. You, too, are attracted to the needy, but you have met, in your Venus in Pisces lover, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and you may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that can be a little disconcerting! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It's an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable. <br><br><br> .....<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Leo</b> When your Venus is in Leo, you can be "stuck" in the first stage of romance, when passions run high and you can't seem to get each other out of your minds. You never want this stage to end! When you are in love, the relationship consumes you. You radiate the love that you receive from your partner, and reverberate with the energy of love. You are ardent and affectionate with your partner. The adoration you give may not be [and probably won't be] matched, and this is when you falter. Truth is, your lover may have a different style of expressing his | her love. It may be just as ardent as your love, but you tend to equate adoring expressions of love with love itself. You tend to hold on to love, sometimes longer than you perhaps should, and you may work hard on forcing your lover into the script you have unconsciously written for him or her! When you are happy with your lover [which often coincides with your perception that your lover is right there with you in an emotional sense], you are generous to a fault, with little thought of the future. You take the ups and downs of your romantic relationships to heart, more so than most people, simply because you invest so much of your ego and identity into love! Your warmth is extremely dependent upon the amount of attention and affection you receive. Although you may begin relationships with considerable ardency, if you are not showered with attention and made to feel special over the course of time, you will surely lose passion for the relationship. Your need for appreciation from your lover is paramount, yet all too often you come on strong in love and your partner misinterprets your ardor as brazen confidence. This can be a vicious circle, because what your lover may not know is that, in fact, you are not as sure of yourself as you seem, and his or her reassurances are vital! It is easy for you to jump into relationships without too much thought. However, your expectations are high, and your partner needs to understand that for a relationship with you to survive over the long haul, it needs to be stoked constantly. You will hang on to a relationship longer than most, but your expectations are so high that disappointment is almost inevitable. More than most signs, you would benefit from waiting to marry when you are older and more sure of yourself. When you're happy in your relationship, your warmth and eagerness are admirable! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> Both of you are spirited lovers. You and your partner approach love in a fiery, direct manner. Sparks fly between you! Both of you fall in love quickly, although you tend to take love a little more seriously than your partner does. Both of you are rather me-centered in love, which of course can be somewhat problematic! You and your Venus in Aries lover are competitive folkjust 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 you crave may not always be forthcoming with your Venus in Aries partner, who inclines to be somewhat blunt and unpolished in style. You may appreciate the simple charm of your partner, or find it infuriating. Probably it's a bit of both! Your style of expression in love is certainly more flowery. Chances are just as good that your partner will find you exciting and infuriating at the same time! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> You value your partner's steadfastness and staying power. You admire his or her strength and conviction. Both of you value loyalty, and both of you are very capable of giving it to one another. Your partner can be quite possessive, and might misinterpret your flirtatiousness as disloyalty, however. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, which means both of you tend to hold on to your relationships. This can mean that your relationship will last longer than many, although longevity does not always mean the going is easy! This can be a sexually magnetic combination, with the only potential problem in the bedroom stemming from your stubborn natures. Both of you look for security in your relationships, and you sense that your partner will give you just that. In partnerships in which money is shared, how you spend money will frequently be an issue. You might be an impulsive spender, riding on emotional drama ["I absolutely need to buy this"]. The melodrama is not limited only to romance, but with money as well! Although your partner appreciates the finer things in life, just like you do, he | she puts more thought into purchases. You have much to offer each other, and mutual respect is likely, with the only serious potential problem is a clash of wills, as both of you are strong individuals! Sensuality, commitment, and pleasure are accentuated in your relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful loverssome might even say childlike! You want to be the center of attention, and your partner's love of variety may leave you feeling a bit threatened. Your partner loves to talk, and you appreciate the easy flow of communication between you and your partner. However, you might find your partner somewhat lacking in the loyalty and steadfastness department! You need to feel secure in your partnership. When you are feeling insecure about your relationship, you are given to melodramasomething that your Venus in Gemini lover doesn't fully understand [he | she might even find your displays somewhat amusing and entertaining!]. You may interpret your partner's need for variety as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and [mostly] positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> You want to be consumed with the desire and passion of love, and you feel threatened when a relationship feels like it is settling down. Your Venus in Cancer partner, on the other hand, loves the security of a "settled" relationship. Your Venus in Cancer partner shows his or her love in a more subtle manner than you do, as he or she tends to your basic emotional needs, often behind the scenes. You will appreciate this attention and his or her sentimentality, but might feel threatened by the lack of "showiness". You might find your partner's mood swings in love rather disconcerting, especially when your lover retreats, and your partner may question your commitment, finding your flirtatiousness hard to deal with. Although you are generally fiercely loyal, your need for flattery and your infatuation with flirting may be distressing for your Venus in Cancer lover. Note that Leo is ruled by the Sun and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. These are two very different signs! Because they are "next door neighbors", they don't share the same element nor do they share the same modality. The result is a distinct difference in approaches to love. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can work very well. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. In fact, there is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two of you. More than most people, you both need plenty of reassurance and expressions of warmth in order to feel satisfied in a relationship...for you, to build your confidence, and for your partner, to build a sense of safety and comfort. Your partner will appreciate your sincere warmth, enthusiasm, and admiration; and, while few people can sate your appetite for attention and affection, your partner is sure to make you feel special. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Leo</b> Oh, the drama! Both of you have similar styles in love, and your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of your mutual Venus placement. On one hand, you will thoroughly enjoy your partner's intensity and passion. Both of you seem to be forever stuck in the dreamy first stages of romance, yet you also look for security in your partnerships. Your mutual desire for long-lasting romance and passion, as well as security, can be satisfied by one another. On the other hand, you both demand to be center stage in your partnership, and this can cause some problems. If you are in one of your melodramatic moods, who will come to your rescue? Your Venus in Leo partner might, but only if he | she is in that mood. Chances are rather high, however, that your partner will be needing some fawning and special attention too. This can be a love-hate relationshipa David Bowie lyric comes to mind</b> "when it's good, it's really good; and when it's bad I go to pieces." Both of you want to feel extra specialyou want to be the best in your partner's eyes. This is a very passionate combination with much potential, but it may at times feel like too much of a good thing. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> In love, you live for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. Your partner, on the other hand, is a little more focused on the future. He | she worries about the practical side of the partnership. You express your love for your partner in a lavish, showy manner. You are consumed with the romance of your relationship, and often expect your partner to feel the same way. Whether or not your Venus in Virgo feels the same way, the manner in which he | she expresses love feelings is distinctly different than your expression. Your partner easily feels threatened by your experience and your occasional bragging sessions. In your desire to be viewed as irresistible, you may inadvertently make your Venus in Virgo partner feel insecure. Remember that he | she expresses love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. Sure, it doesn't sound exceptionally romantic, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and not something you naturally tend to. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signsthey don't share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encountersand so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that your partner is entirely wrapped up in the "we" of your partnership, while you are more concerned about "me". You will be thrilled that your partner is so very willing to compromise and accommodate you. However, over time, your Venus in Libra partner might refer to his or her mental log and start tallying things up. You see, your partner is very concerned with equality and fairness. Even though your partner is quite willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside and can eventually get the best of your partnership if you're not careful. Your partner might find you a tad too intense at times, while you might consider your partner somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for your liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where your partner is always running after you, trying to make you happy. It can be all too easy to take advantage of your partner's desire to keep the peace in your relationship, but remember that he or she is likely to resent a partnership in which the "give and take" is not balanced. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may be a big issue between you. Your partner quickly feels you out and learns your boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water [Scorpio] has the power to put out Fire [Leo]. What happens is your natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might be threatening or disconcerting to your Venus in Scorpio partner, and he or she might find it easy to pull you down, or "rain on your parade". Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When your Venus in Scorpio partner withholds sex, generally because he or she is feeling unloved or unappreciated, you take it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. You will appreciate your partner's emotional commitment to the relationship, and your lover will respect your strength, as he | she is attracted to intensityeven crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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. You are naturally more loyal than your restless partner, and loyalty from your partner is very important to you. This doesn't mean that your partner is promiscuousit simply means that his or her restlessness can intimidate you or leave you feeling insecure. Your partner's far-sightedness means that he or she isn't always focused on what is right under his or her nosenamely, you! And, focus on you and your relationship is essential to your 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 you need to understand is that your partner dislikes the feeling of being fenced in. If your partner feels free, he or she is more likely to stay true. Stifle your partner, and your relationship will quickly become volatile. However, this relationship is an especially passionate one that neither of you could forget easily. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> You are insatiably expressive in your love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. Your Venus in Capricorn partner possesses a more steady, practical view of relationships. You have a tendency to dramatize your feelings [you don't just like something, you adore it; you aren't simply hurt by what your partner says, you are devastated, etc.]. Your partner, on the other hand, is more reserved about his or her feelings and desires. In fact, your Venus in Capricorn partner may find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. Some may question the sincerity behind your demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Remind yourself that the constancy of your partner's feelings for you are very valuable. Your partner is very much concerned about where your relationship is headed. You, on the other hand, are living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, your lover believes in moderation, and you are inclined to go overboard in both areas. Your ego is tied up in how your partner treats you, and there is the risk that your apparent over-confidence will prompt your lover to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, you are likely to lose interest fast. Your partner needs to understand that you are far more insecure in love than you let on. Your partner values solitude from time to time, and his or her withdrawal is sure to fire you up. Your head is often in the clouds, and your vision of the future is generally positive, while your partner is largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. Your partner might enjoy your ability to brighten up his or her day, and you will love his or her wonderful sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This is the case of "opposites attract". Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite each other, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! Opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Leo, place great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self, while Aquarius is more concerned with the greater group process. Your partner expresses his or her feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate you. You have a fight or flight reaction either you see this as a challenge or you run in the opposite direction! You are largely subjective, while your partner is objective. Both of you like to be special and "different", but you want to be special, in the sense that you want to be the best, in your partner's eyes. Your partner wants to be valued for his | her uniqueness in terms of the group. You are personal, involved, and intense in your romantic dealings; your partner is impersonal and rather detached. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this "shadow" personality in the other. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Leo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. You are direct and generous with your affections. Your Venus in Pisces lover is probably just as generous, but his or her manner of expressing love is markedly different than yours. The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing [Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn't come easily to you]. Both of you are incurable romantics. Your style, however, is personal, while your partner's loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but "universal" may be the best term for your partner's love nature. You appreciate your lover's warmth, but his | her indirect and evasive approach is threatening to you. Venus in Pisces lovers seem to be so warm and affectionate, but you can't help but sense that he | she loves everyone that way, not just you. You need to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin your Venus in Pisces lover down and get that specific attention that you crave [or demand!]. You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. You may be flattered by your lover's sentimentality and dependency. However, when you are unhappy with him or her, you can easily become theatrical. Your lover may interpret your dramas as abusive, which can shock you because you consider your displays honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. Your lover is very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your emotions in a flash. He or she may expect the same in return, but you prefer your lover to be direct and to the point with his or her wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious. <br><br><br> ......<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Virgo</b> When your Venus is in Virgo, you express love by doing things for, and fussing over, your loved one. You notice little things about your partner, make mental notes of their likes and dislikes [this may sound contrived, but it's notit's simply the way you're wired!], and genuinely try to help your lover in practical ways. You listen to what your lover has to say, and you have something sensible and intelligent to say in response! In fact, you are great at communicating about your relationship. One dilemma that can easily happen with this position</b> Your partner doesn't always know how to please you. You might have a simple answer, but he | she may still wonder. You see all of the details of your relationship. You worry about its viability, and tend to the practical details of partnership. These are important contributions to the relationship, but because they lack glamour, your partner may not always appreciate you. You are not the most romantic partner, and your tastes are rather simple [although, as mentioned before, it is hard for others to see that simplicity because you may have a habit of fussing]. Can't see the forest for the trees? Your partner might accuse you of this, and it may be true. You will benefit from sitting back and infusing yourself with some faith in the big picture, once in a while. But, you are needed! And there are partners who will see that. You work hard at making yourself indispensable in your partner's life. Generally, you don't throw yourself into love affairs too readily. This does not mean you are chaste, like the Virgo of yore. Some Venus in Virgo natives can even be promiscuous. But when it comes to gooey romance, where lovers bare all, you are rather selective and self-contained. You are a very sensual being who wants to feel safe before giving yourself to another. Venus in Virgo has a reputation for being critical. This does happen, but it generally is a symptom of insecurity. You can't help but see the failings and the holes in any partnership, and you can sometimes be quite reticent about entering a partnership. Generally, though, you will see what's wrong with a person at the outset of a relationship when it doesn't feel safe to you as yet. It's a defense mechanism more than anything! Your own insecurities can propel you to see faults and problems in your partner. Once you feel safe, however, you are not quite the fussbudget Venus in Virgo is made out to be. You value effort put into a relationship [in fact, for many with this position, effort from their partner is at the top of their list]. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> Here, we are mixing Fire [Aries] and Earth [Virgo you!]. 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 his | her need for stimulation and excitement contrasted with your desire for safety and security. You can be quite active together, and pour some energy into activities, but your partner's impulsive and competitive nature may leave you feeling insecure. Both of you are simple in your needs, but those needs are markedly different. Your partner isn't the most flowery of lovers, and neither are you, but he | she can be downright insensitive at times. You are a sensitive soul, although not quite as delicate as one might think. You will put up with so much, just to make a relationship work, but you do want some appreciation for all your efforts. Both of you value honesty, and you'll generally get it from each other. Your partner will likely appreciate your willingness to please, in the moments when he | she notices this trait. Money matters will most certainly bring some conflict, as you are more cautious and a natural worrier and your partner can be the classic impulse buyer. Shared interests are important to you, and this may also be a problem, as you and your partner are really quite dissimilar! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> You and your partner are both Venusian Earth signs, which means you definitely share some common ground. You want to build a workable partnership, and so does your partner! You look for security and safety in love...ditto for your lover. One of the main differences in your temperaments is your willingness to make adjustments. Your partner is a more stubborn soul, possessing staying power, for sure, but not the flexibility that you so gracefully offer any partnership. This issue may be the most difficult of your problems together. Both of you are sensual lovers, appreciating the simple pleasures of sex. Sexually, your partner is more capable of calming your nervous nature than most lovers, helping to make you feel whole and scads more comfortable in your own skin. You appreciate the aura of safety that quite naturally surrounds your partner. He | she senses your commitment and integrity in partnership, which is very pleasing indeed! Shared interests and projects are important to you in terms of satisfaction derived from partnership, and this may indeed happen with your Venus in Taurus partner, although you might be the one doing more of the hard work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> Because you tend to value intelligence and communication, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Gemini partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to you, your partner may be less discriminating than you in terms of who he | she communicates with. You come alive in an established relationship. Your partner, on the other hand, requires a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to you for mental stimulation. This is healthy for your partner, but it may be somewhat intimidating for you, as you prefer to be the most indispensable person in any partner's life. You also tend to be more sensitive in matters of the heart than your happy-go-lucky lover. Your partner thrives on variety, and tires easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. You are restless as well, but you are at your best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although your partner may take this to an extreme that makes you feel uncomfortable. You may begin to question the sincerity and constancy of your partner over time. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> This pairing is one of the better combinations in practice! Care and nurture will be a strong theme in this relationship. This is most likely to be a low-key relationshipperhaps not as exciting as some, but fertile in a quiet way. The physical and sensual aspects of love are important and emphasized in your relationship with this loyal and nurturing partner. Your partner's mood swings in love may spark an occasional problem, and he or she might find your approach to love a tad dry at times. Both of you, however, crave security and dependability in partnership, and you are both very capable of delivering these things to each other. You and your Venus in Cancer lover come alive in a safe environmentexactly the kind of atmosphere you enjoy creating. You value the sincerity of your partner's approach to love, and he or she senses your willingness to put effort into making your relationship work. You may find your partner lacking in the communication department, however, simply because he or she places higher value on non-verbal expressions of love. You need to understand that your partner is very sensitive to criticism, and what you might consider constructive criticism might result in some feelings of rejection. With understanding and tolerance, however, your partner can help you see the forest for the trees, and you, with your gentle ways, can stimulate your partner to open up a little more than comes naturally to him or her. More than likely, there is a lot of respect between the two of you, and a feeling of security that is enviable. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> You are the worrywart in love, focusing on what will come of your relationship in the future. Your Venus in Leo lover, however, lives for the moment, fully enjoying the delightful passion and desire that is often characteristic of the first stage of romance. You worry about the practical side of the partnership. Your partner expresses his | her love for you in a lavish, showy manner. He | she is consumed with the romance of your relationship, and might expect you to feel the same way. You easily feel threatened by your partner's apparent "experience", but do remember that your lover is given to brag a little, and he | she is trying to win your favorperhaps the wrong way! In his | her desire to be viewed as irresistible, your partner may inadvertently make you feel insecure. You express your love by laying solid groundwork for your partnership. This doesn't sound exceptionally romantic to your starry-eyed lover, but the practical side to your relationship is important, and somebody has to do it [Venus in Leo would prefer not!]. Try not to feel intimidated by your partner, and enjoy his | her generous love nature. Your partner may be so lavish with praise that it seems insincere. It's not! Don't overanalyze it. Virgo and Leo are side-by-side signsthey don't share the same element nor do they come from the same modality. The result is a lack of understanding between the signs. Do not despair, however! With a healthy dose of tolerance, this relationship can be handled. A conscious relationship is what Astrology can help with. Being aware of the different personality traits and needs of each partner is the first step to greater understanding. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Virgo</b> Both of you value the same things in love, which is a good starting point. Shared interests are important to you, but in this case, when two Venusian Virgos are together, it would make a little more sense [a word you both love!] to have different projects and interests. Why? Because you both tend to want to run the show when it comes to pet projects. In the love relationship in general, however, you are flexible and attentive. It may be difficult to choose a leader! There doesn't always have to be a leader in a relationship, of course, but the relationship might become a little bogged down in details. Ideally, you have some strong Water or Fire signs elsewhere in your chart, helping to infuse some energy and heart into an otherwise somewhat dry combination. You need to establish some far-reaching goals for the partnership, something that doesn't come too naturally for either of you, simply because you are too busy taking care of the business at hand. You can be somewhat nervous in love, and your partner is inclined in this direction as well. Be careful not to pick each other apart, and enjoy the fantastic conversations you will inevitably share. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venusian Air [Libra] and Earth [Virgo] temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. You are certainly a thinker, but your partner is more given to sharing flights of fancy while your ideas are more conservative and practical. Your partner might find you too skeptical in matters of the heart; at the same time, you might consider your partner to be too idealistic. Your Venus in Libra lover has a somewhat detached manner, and you might interpret the "airs" that he | she puts on [read</b> charm!] as a lack of sincerity. Loyalty is of utmost importance to you, and your lover is certainly capable of giving a lot to the partnership. In fact, he | she lives for partnership! But your partner's detached manner might make you feel somewhat insecure and threatened. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other's different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> Trust doesn't come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. Your partner is passionate and intenseperhaps even provocative. If he | she senses passion and commitment is missing or waning, your lover may go to any means [often subtle] to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because your partner can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. You are usually receptive to your partner's wishes and needs, and you tend to bend your ways accordingly. You work hard at making your relationship worksomething that your partner senses and appreciates. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth [you] and Water [your partner]. When you understand each other's different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but you value practical expressions of commitment, while your partner values emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If your partner senses any emotional distance on your part, he | she may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, you only appear "distant" because you are busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. You may find your partner's silences frustrating, as you are always willing to talk about your relationship and don't always understand why your partner resorts to giving you the silent treatment! Your partner is skilled at knowing how to push your buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways he | she has discovered to get your attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 timenothing insurmountable, of course! The common ground you share is a desire to learn through your relationship and a willingness to talk things over. Your partner values your keen insight and you can have some wonderful conversations. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover, especially, gets off on the sharing of ideas, and enjoys philosophizing. You are certainly the more practical partner in this pairing, and your partner may find you a bit of a stick in the mud at times. You may complain of his | her blind faith in the relationship, preferring that your partner live in the here and now. You value effort put into the relationship, and you can't help but see all of the "little things" that make up its whole. Your partner, on the other hand, prefers to think of your partnership in grander, larger terms. This can be very annoying for you! You will likely disagree on how to spend money as well. Your partner is not a save-for-a-rainy-day type of person by any stretch of the imagination [unless Saturn is aspecting his | her Venus]! Your lover needs space and at least the illusion of freedom. He | she is very threatened by any attempts to confine him | her. Needless to say, your partner will be much happier if there is a strong feeling of growth in your relationship. Making plans and defining goals may help, but attempting to control or cage your partner in will have unfavorable results. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little...well, dry...there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! Your partner cherishes some moments of solitude, and that is something that you will need to understand and respect. There is no reason to feel threatened with this behavior. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your partner's side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, so you will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Virgo | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> Your partner gets off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. You, on the other hand, are most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! You believe your needs are simple, and in many ways they are. You respond best to practical displays of affection, and because your Venus is in an Earth sign, you value your partner's physical presence. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make you feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. Your partner values exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner's appreciation of you is paramount. Otherwise, you are prone to feeling like you have done something wrong. Your partner shows his or her love in different ways, and the independence your lover needs, if misunderstood, can lead you to worry far too much. Note that if you loosen up and be yourself, your lover will appreciate you all the more. Misunderstanding of each other's unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work. <br><br><br> <b>How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> This is a case of "opposites attract", except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just that your partner, not an enemy. You will appreciate your lover's gentleness and sympathy, although you can find him or her somewhat evasive at times. This is because while you are happy to define love, your partner prefers to leave some things unspoken. Faith in love is something your Venus in Pisces partner can teach you, if you are open to it. You can help ground your partner, reminding him or her that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal. <br><br><br> .......<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Libra</b> When your Venus is in Libra, you have an irresistibly pleasing romantic demeanor, no matter what you look like. The sign of Libra is intimately connected with partnerships, so you are particularly sensitive to the give-and-take associated with any kind of pairing that is one-on-one. You are a romantic, and will spend much of your attention and focus on relationships in your lifetime. You vibrate to the concept of harmony, and peace is your ultimate goal. However, along the road to that goal, you can certainly stir a pot or two! You are a pleaser, that is for certain. In fact, because you are so sensitive to the needs of others, you may be accused of adapting your manner or even your personality to "suit" the object of your affection! The truth is, you can easily lose your identity in partnership because of your natural ability to see things from your partner's point of view. Libra is the sign of balance, and in your attempts to keep the scales balanced, you may wear your partner down by a natural tendency to "keep scores". You should watch out that you don't give away power to your partner, and then resent your feeling of powerlessness. You view partnerships as fundamental to a fulfilled existence, and you work hard at supporting your partner's individuality. Togetherness is so extraordinarily important to you that your partner might find you quite dependent, and even clingy. In most cases, however, your deep need for togetherness makes you an exceptionally companionable person. You redefine the word "charming", and you are an expert at smoothing ruffled feathers. Compromise comes easy to you, and your ideal partner will appreciate your willingness to consider his or her needs and wants. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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 partner's direct even aggressive approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your life, as you tend toward indecision. It's a stark contrast to your 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 challenging over time. You are a somewhat dependent creature, while your partner is much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because your partner doesn't have much patience to wait. If your Venus in Aries friend sees someone [or something] he or she likes, they'll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and he or she figures that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. You, on the other hand, notoriously take your time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, you value reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as you are when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active lover in the sense that he or she definitely needs a partner who will compromise, but you may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, your partner doesn't always listen to reason. 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take an intellectual approach to love [you think and talk a lot about your relationship], your partner is considerably more practical and earthy. All too often, Earth signs [including Taurus], interpret your intellectual approach to love as either disloyalty or lacking in sincerity. You can easily become frustrated with your lover's seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. Your partner is sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time you invest in your partnership, although he or she may eventually question whether your approach is actually getting results. You see, your lover is much more interested in what works in lovewhat he or she sees in tangible terms. What "could be", "would be", or "might be" doesn't pull much weight with your Venus in Taurus partner. With a natural inclination to see where your relationship needs adjustment, you are usually more than willing to compromisea trait that might be considered a necessity with your partner, who is not the most flexible of lovers. Your thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied Venus in Taurus partner. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounces and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You thrive on feedback from your partner, and your Venusian Gemini lover will certainly fulfill that need. There can be considerable respect between you. Your partner enjoys plenty of social and mental stimulationthe more variety, the betterand you do as well. However, your focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while your partner is not so specific in his or her needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may not be as romantic as you, and you might complain that he or she is a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with his or her wit. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. This relationship can contain markedly less of the sort of jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperation is easy between you. Both of you are flexible when it comes to love, and that fact can certainly help ease difficulties that arise. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. Your partner expresses his or her love in a distinctly personal manner, while you are more intellectually inclined. You are adept at honing in on what your partner needs and what makes your partner uncomfortableso much so that you might change your style completely in order to keep the peace. With this Venusian Cancer, you will quickly get to know that your partner is very sensitive. Although it is important to avoid hurting your lover's feelings, you don't want to compromise your personality completely in order to maintain harmony. If you do, personal communication between you can come to a halt, and neither of you will find much satisfaction in that kind of environment. Your partner is capable of putting up huge walls around himself or herself, and communication is utterly critical to your sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more you press your partner for the feedback you thrive on, the more your partner may withdraw. As charming as you are, you might be able to coax your partner out of his or her shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. You might never find such a caring and supportive partner elsewhere. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encountersand so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that you are entirely wrapped up in the "we" of your partnership, while your partner is more concerned about "me". Your partner is infatuated with the feelings that are most characteristic of the first stages of romance, and wants that passion to continue...indefinitely! While romance is certainly right up your alley, you have tremendous respect for the give and take of partnership. Your partner will truly appreciate your willingness to compromise and accommodate him or her. However, over time, you are bound to refer to your "mental log" and start tallying things up. Your love of equality and fairness always surfaces, and although you are generally very willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside you if your partner takes advantage of this willingness. Your resentment can eventually get the best of your partnership. You might find your partner a tad too intense at times. At the same time, your lover might complain that you are somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for his or her liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where you are always running after your somewhat hard to please partner, trying to make him or her happy. It can be all too easy for your desire to keep peace in your relationship to be taken advantage of. Your partner should recognize that you are likely to resent a partnership in which the "give and take" is not balanced. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venus in Air [Libra] and Earth [Virgo] temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. Your partner is definitely a thinker, but you are more given to sharing flights of fancy. Your more practical partner entertains and shares ideas that are more conservative and practical. It may seem to you that your partner is skeptical in matters of the heart, which can certainly irritate your sensibilities, simply because you have an idealistic and positive view of partnership. You can sometimes give off an air of detachment, and your charming manner might be interpreted by your partner as a lack of sincerity. Because loyalty is of utmost importance to your Venus in Virgo partner, your commitment to the partnership will be very much appreciated. You, in fact, live for partnership! You are very romantic and always put yourself in others' shoes. At times, however, your partner can feel insecure in the face of your sociable, people-oriented values. He or she wants to be your "number one", and needs to feel needed. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments and concessions in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other's different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Libra</b> Pairing two Libras at best is pleasing and harmonious. At worst, it's a bit unbalanceda word [rather, a condition] that makes Libra uneasy. After all, Libras work so hard to balance their relationships and their environments. Both of you value feedback and communication in your relationships, and each of you is more than willing to give the other just these things! However, because both of you are rather ambivalent and indecisive, an endless loop may be the result when you get together. Your conversations will be very stimulating, no doubt, but will they go anywhere solid? Probably not. You two need to establish some goals in your relationship in order to escape the "endless loop". It can be very difficult to establish a leader in this partnership. Of course, a relationship doesn't necessarily need a leader, per se. However, both of you "get off" on cooperation, bending to your partner, and compromising. As such, you will likely find you share a lot of interests, but acting on these things might be a problem. You might have a difficult time curbing your expenses as well, simply because both of you have such refined tastes. Each of you have perfected the art of diplomacy within relationships, and you need to be careful that you truly confront problems as they arise instead of talking your way around them. Despite these apparent problems, you truly understand each other and have very similar partnership needs and expectations. Togetherness is of utmost value to both of you, and your similarities can be the foundation for a powerful bond. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! Your partner wants your soul, not just your presence. You, on the other hand, are most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your relationship needs, you work hard at finding common ground and adamantly believe in equality and all that is fair. Your partner, on the other hand, believes just as strongly that life isn't fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. Your lover is fascinated with your charm, and you are intrigued by your partner's intense love nature. Although Venus in Scorpio people are notorious for their mysteriousness, he or she considers you to be somewhat of a puzzle. You bring a lively, luminous energy to your relationshipsqualities that stand in stark contrast to your partner's intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teachand to offereach other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 union, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. You may find your lover somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because he or she is freedom-loving. You are not one to try to confine a lover, but some adjustment in your thinking may be needed. Your partner is adventurous in love, and not as tactful as you can be. At times, he or she may run roughshod over your feelings, often with no intention to do so, but you are fully capable of understanding that your partner is simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to your "do it now" partner. 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, you are the master of being reasonable, which your partner will appreciate more than most. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committedonly in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. You concern yourself with equality in your relationships, and you busy yourself weighing the pros and cons from day to day. Your partner is also concerned about your relationship, only he or she is somewhat more reserved than you are when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to you, while practical expressions of love are important to your lover. Your partner will appreciate your commitment to him or her, deriving a sense of security from it. You will appreciate your partner's commitment as well, and you feel very at ease with him or her. Your partner exudes a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for you. Your willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for your partner to appreciate and acknowledge that quality in you. In turn, be sure you acknowledge your partner's stability in love, and appreciate the security you derive from his or her constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite these differences, and will go a long way towards compatibility. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues with the definition of your relationship, however. Whereas you value partnerships more than anything, your partner is more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. Your partner can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but you are more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. Your partner values peace and not only believes in equality, but treats people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to you. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through [and your partner's responsiveness in this department] can help smooth over rough edges. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Libra |How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because your love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your love planet [Venus] is an Air sign, while your partner's is a Water sign. While you approach relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, your partner instinctively responds to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by the world of thought and ideas in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by feelings. Your partner needs some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other's unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work. <br><br><br> ........<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Scorpio</b> When your Venus is in Scorpio, it's all or nothing in matters of the heart. You are capable of loving deeply, and you crave intimacy. Scorpio isn't afraid of anything, and when Venus, the planet of love, is found in this sign, love relationships are intense. Scorpio is also a sign that thrives on crisis in order for its natives to feel alive and vital, so when it comes to matters of the heart, you are not only unafraid of getting your hands dirty, you may easily find an overly predictable relationship uninteresting. Scorpios don't enjoy being referred to as jealous, but from time to time, jealousy and possessiveness become issues in your relationships. You have a strong desire to control your often turbulent passions, and you don't always let your partner exactly what is going on inside of you as a result. Others will be either strongly attracted to, or intimidated by, your obvious ability to give all to love, and your extraordinary passion. Your strong interest in love and romance can sometimes border on obsessive, and you need a partner who is willing to go the distance with you. Sexually, you are intense as well, but you definitely do not only want your partner's body you want his or her soul as well. Sex without intimacy is ultimately uninteresting to you. Be careful that your fear of betrayal doesn't become a self-fulfilling prophecy. When insecure about your partner's feelings about you, resorting to games of power and control might seem like a natural route for you, and may even get temporary desired "results", but can have disastrous consequences in the long run. Learning to let go a little and have faith in your partner can do wonders in any relationship. When you are at your best, you are unafraid of intimacy and can offer extraordinary passion to your relationships that is pretty much unmatched. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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. Your partner is direct while you can be more roundabout in expressions of love. Your libido is rather constant, while your partner's fluctuates tremendously. Your partner lives for the excitement of the moment in matters of the heart, but you have 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 termthe 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Opposites attract? Very often they do. The interesting thing about opposite astrological signs is that they do share a common theme, helping them to see eye-to-eye from time to time, at least. Both of you are stubborn individuals, rather fixed in your habits and tastes, and essentially intense and loyal in love. Neither of you lets go of partnershipsor each othereasily. You tend to be more intense about your attachments than your partner is, and your partner's overall peacefulness should go a long way to calm the sometimes tumultuous waters of your emotions and needs. Each of you is attracted to the other's strong personality and willingness to commit. You sense in your partner the ability to "go the distance", and mutual respect is likely the result. This is a sexually intense and magnetic partnership. Who will run the show? Ideally, both of you will, in different ways, but power is important to you both, and your strong personalities may clash at times. One of the most common differences between Taurus and Scorpio lies in how you approach love relationships. Your partner may find you overly complex, while you might consider your partner's needs too simple! Your partner's desire in love is for peace and stability, while you thrive on boat-rocking from time to time. You tend to feel threatened when a relationship becomes too predictable, but predictability is your partner's goal! This basic clash is inevitable, and finding a common ground will be essential. This partnership has an exceptional chance of lasting. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers [albeit in completely different ways!], and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. Your partner is a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that he or she flirts with everyone, but he or she does infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into their relationship. Your love nature is intense, and you crave intimacy. When intimacy is threatened, you can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which you attempt to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio you are. You are astute and perceptive, and can easily learn how to push your partner's buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. You want your partner's soul, not just their body! Your partner, however, has an entirely different view of partnership. He or she wants it to be fun, while you will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> This is considered an easier pairing than most because both of your Venus signs are in Water. A similarand familiarvein to the quality of your expressions of love can draw you to one another and make you feel "at home". Both of you take commitment rather seriously, and neither of you is frivolous with your feelings and expressions. Your partner's warmth and caring nature will feel regenerating to you, and your partner senses your all-encompassing love that will hold special appeal to your loving partner. At times, the love you offer can feel all-consuming, but this doesn't scare your partner like it would with some other lovers. In fact, the love your partner gives is rather similar, and you don't fear closeness and intimacy. In fact, you live for it! The attraction between the two of you is magnetic, deeply felt, and has the potential to withstand the test of time if other factors in synastry support it. Both of you tend to be possessive in love, and your partner's memory is powerful. Communication should be as open as possible, as both of you tend towards holding silent grudges at times. Your partner's reaction to hurts is often internalized, while you can grow cold and unresponsive when you feel slighted. However, the empathy that runs between you can soften any hard angles in your relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> You and your partner can be possessive of each other, which may become a big issue between you. You quickly "feel out" your emotions-on-the-sleeves partner and learns his or her boundaries. When Leo and Scorpio mix, we are faced with the mixing of Fire and Water. Water [Scorpio] has the power to put out Fire [Leo]. What happens is your partner's natural spiritedness and enthusiasm in love might seem threatening or disconcerting to you, and you might find it easy to pull your partner down, or "rain on his or her parade". Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, which means each of you is quite loyal and possibly very stubborn! Both of you hold on to partnerships, so it is quite likely that your relationship will last long. However, neither of you is particularly flexible, and both of you are quite proud. Jealousies and clashes of will are very possible with this combination. In partnerships where money is shared, how each of you spends money will likely be a big issue. There can be a lot of passion between you, as both of you have strong appetites, but the bedroom can be yet another battleground for you and your partner. When you withhold sex, generally because you are feeling unloved or unappreciated, your partner takes it very personally. Despite the fact that you both have strong sexual appetites, there can be periods of abstinence between you. However, each of you will find much to appreciate in each other. Neither of you shies away from a relationship when it gets intense. Your partner is sure to appreciate your emotional commitment to the relationship, and you will respect your partner's strength, as you are attracted to intensityeven crisis. This is an intense, often rocky, and passionate pairing. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> Trust doesn't come extremely easy to either you or your partner, but put you together, and the atmosphere feels quite safe. You are passionate and intenseperhaps even provocative at times. If you sense passion and commitment is missing or waning, you may go to any means [often subtle] to keep the relationship from becoming boring. This is because you can be somewhat addicted to emotional excitement. Your partner is usually receptive to a partner's wishes and needs, and he or she tends to bend their ways accordingly. Your lover works hard at making relationships worksomething that you sense and appreciate. Neither of you is frivolous about committed relationships, and if you and your partner are committed to each other, this pairing can be hard to break. This pairing combines Venusian Earth [your partner] and Water [you]. When you understand each other's different styles of loving, the combination can be very fertile. Problems generally arise between the differences in focus. Both of you are committed to making your relationship last, but your partner values practical expressions of commitment, while you value emotional ones. Subtle control issues may be the source of problems over time. If you sense any emotional distance on your lover's part, you may use various means to regain some sense of control. Generally, your partner only appears "distant" because he or she is busy tending to the cogs in the machine of your relationship. Your lover may find your silences frustrating, because he or she is always willing to talk about the relationship and doesn't always understand why you resort to giving him or her the silent treatment! You can be skilled at knowing how to push your partner's buttons, however, and this may be one of the more potent ways you have discovered to get your partner's attention! As long as game-playing is kept to a minimum, this relationship has many strengths and much potential. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! You want your lover's soul, not just his or her presence. Your lover, on the other hand, is most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your partner's relationship needs, he or she works hard at finding common ground and adamantly believes in equality and all that is fair. You, on the other hand, believe just as strongly that life isn't fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. You can be fascinated with your partner's charm, and your lover is intrigued by your intense love nature. Although you are notorious for your mysteriousness, you can actually consider your Venus in Libra partner to be somewhat of a puzzle! You may find your lover to be emotionally distant and overly focused on superficial togetherness at the expense of intimacy. Your partner brings a lively, luminous energy to his or her relationshipsqualities that stand in stark contrast, at times, to your intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teachand to offereach other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Scorpio</b> Your similarities in approach to love can either strengthen your relationship or make you wary of each other! Often, it is a combination of both. Both of you are intense lovers, wanting emotional involvement more than anything from a relationship. You will certainly get it from each other, but Scorpio, perhaps more than most signs, needs a partner to complement, with enough differences to keep things interesting. Not that this relationship will be boringthat could never happen with either of you! Neither of you is comfortable with a partnership that is completely comfortable or predictable. Your relationship will never get to that point. The only red flag here is that each of you needs someone to soften your sharp edges, and your relationship may be even too much of an emotional rollercoaster for either of your liking! If both of you are at an emotionally healthy point in your lives, and with understanding, you can certainly forge out a strong commitment. Passions will be strong, although stand-offs may be frequent and almost unbearable. If you make the time to appreciate each other, there will be considerable mutual respect and common goals in this relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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. You approach love relationships with intensity. Your partner is intense in a different way. He or she is a fiery lover, focused on action and the passion of the moment, while your passion runs more deeply and is considerably more emotional. Experience is important to your partner. He or she does not always come across as constant with affections, and this fact can be frustrating to you. You can be somewhat possessive in love, but your partner chokes when he or she feels caged in. You may find your partner somewhat flighty and inconstant, and he or she may be bewildered by your greater than average need for intimacy. Still, you will thoroughly enjoy the fresh air that your partner breathes into the relationship. Life is always exciting with a Venus in Sagittarius lover! Your partner will consider you astute and will appreciate your depth of perception. This can be a rocky partnership, but highly stimulating at the same time. <br><br><br> <b>How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> The passion your partner senses in you is, of course, real, and this thought excites your mate. Although other lovers may find your partner a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, you have a way of making him or her feel extraordinary. Because your partner both fears and craves intimacy, you are probably one of the most ideal people to get to him or her. Your partner finds you exciting and deeply intriguing, and you are sure to find him or her equally fascinatingeven a challenge. You will thoroughly appreciate your partner's dedication to a relationship, probably more than most, and it is when he or she feels appreciated that your partner is at his or her romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone "weak" for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what your partner appreciates most about you is your ability to see past his or her defenses. While others may be intimidated by your partner's often cool and even aloof exterior, you know there is a lot more to your lover. Fortunately for you, you will get to experience all that is inside your Venus in Capricorn lover, and it is unlikely you will be disappointed. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner's love nature, and your partner with your nature. Your nature is intense and personal, and very passionate. While your partner is able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, you have a much more difficult time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for you to "get" why your lover is capable of detaching him or herself from emotional circumstances, and you may even find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. Your partner can be quite baffled by your passionate reactions, as he or she tends to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. Your lover values objectivity, and prides himself or herself on an ability to reason things through. Your partner may be inclined to react to your more emotionally intense moments by giving you space. This is likely to frustrate you even more, as you interpret your partner's "stepping aside" as walking awayor, even worse, lack of concern for you and the relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other's strength of character. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Scorpio | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding of each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can promote an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionallyyou don't use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Pisces partner. You are more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than your partner is, however. Your partner loves deeply and with his or her heart, but you might wonder just how exclusive those feelings are towards you. You want to get under your lover's skin, and you are not always thrilled to share your partner with the rest of the world. So, when your partner is expressing his or her compassion for pretty much everyone that comes around the corner, you may feel a tad threatened. You need to understand and accept your partner's love of mankind in general. You might worry that your lover strays too easilyand it's not about him or her having an affair. It's more a concern that your partner is too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when he or she has you? That's the kind of attitude you might hold, and this could be your relationship's biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. Your partner is more than likely to appreciate your intensity and depth of feeling. <br><br><br> .........<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Sagittarius</b> When your Venus is 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 exaggerationnot 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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 stimulatingeven invigoratingpairing. 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> 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 thata 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> 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 nosenamely, 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> 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 timenothing 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 discussionssomething 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! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> 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 twonot 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Sagittarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> 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 otherand that is a lot! <br><br><br> ..........<br> <b>Synastry | Venus in Capricorn</b> When your Venus is in Capricorn, you are generally steadfast and deliberate in love, finding safety and comfort in all that is tried and true. You can be on the cautious side about sharing your heart, but your reliability as a partner is hard to resist for many people. You act respectfully in love, and take extra care not to hurt a partner. For that matter, you take extra care not to get hurt yourself! This self-protective quality can sometimes frustrate your partner, simply because you are not very comfortable with letting yourself go on a romantic level. Once your defenses are down [at least some of them], you are a warm, tender, and even vulnerable lover. Things are at their best in your relationships when your partner understands that you show your emotions and care through actions rather than words. What appears to be a certain coolness, aloofness, or even snobbishness actually hides a fair amount of vulnerability and warmth. When you feel safe and comfortable with someone, you are far more demonstrative. Yours is a strong sensuality. You attract others with a quiet charm that fairly reeks with competence. There is a controlled manner about you when it comes to love, and potential partners can sense it. It can drive them wild if they are so inclined! You are attracted to a partner who is responsible and respectable. Someone who is passionate may at once scare you and appeal to you, and these conflicting emotions and reactions can lead to quite a powerful attraction. Perhaps a passionate person is exactly what you need to loosen up a little. You have much to offer others, and your dependability is sure to be appreciated in the long haul. For those who are up to the challenge, discovering the earthy sensuality and vulnerability inside you will be a tremendous reward. They will have to win your trust, and a little persistence will certainly help. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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 relationship needs are decidedly more practical and earthy than those of your partner. In matters of the heart, your lover acts first and thinks later. You, on the other hand, consider all of the ins and outs of the partnership</b> 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 your partner, as he or she tends to think in the here and now, while you take into consideration the future of your relationship. If you share your finances with your Venus in Aries lover, you are in the position to help curb your partner's habit for impulsive spending, and whether or not your lover appreciates that depends entirely on him or her! Your partner might complain that you are a little too serious at times, but hopefully you will enjoy the fact that your partner is remarkably capable of infusing relationships with fun and activity. Because your partner is more forthright in love than you are, it is likely his or her responsibilty for getting this relationship going, but if your partner thinks they can always be the leader, they might have another thing coming! Certainly, you are definitely more cautious with your heart, but you also have a reserve of strength that is mighty indeed. Your partner might consider you to be somewhat of a challenge, but challenges in love are generally considered exciting for Venus in Aries. Some clashes are inevitable, but with understanding and love, this relationship can work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> This is one of the easier combinations because, although you are different enough to sustain each other's interest, you share enough common goals in love to keep tension to a minimum. Both of you share a basic appreciation for sensuality and earthy pleasures, and you will likely agree on how you spend money to boot. Neither of you jump into partnership thoughtlessly, so yours may be a somewhat lengthy courting. On the other hand, you make each other feel so extraordinarily comfortable and safe that you might surprise yourselves and give in to the feelings you have for each other more readily than you would with others. Seeing eye to eye on matters of the heart [and the bank account] can do wonders for any partnership. You are more likely to be the one to take action in your partnership, and may sometimes find your partner a little too complacent. However, you know that you can rely on one another, and this is something that is important to you both. Each of you has a way of attracting the good things in life, and your partnership is sure to be characterized with healthy abundance. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. Your partner has a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than you do. You are likely to appreciate the fact that your partner can help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity, although you may not feel as safe with this person than you do with some others. Your concern with commitment, and tendency to plan for the future may be a bit foreign to your more happy-go-lucky lover. You are sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. You like your solitude, and your partner likes his or her space. If your lover can avoid feeling threatened by your need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of his or her many and varied interests, this partnership can work well. You are more able to handle your lover's quips and teasing than others, although you might complain that his or her head is in the clouds. Your feet are definitely on the ground, but you don't shy away from ambition and progress either! Despite this, if your partner is the more flighty of Venus in Gemini people, he or she might even find you downright boring. This isn't to say you are boring, but your partner does favor a livelier, more active partner than you may express. In difficult pairings, you might be inclined to think your partner is about as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> Opposites attract, and you and your partner's Venus [love] signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac! You are sure to find each other fascinating indeed. The attraction will be powerful as you represent qualities that your partner lacks, and vice versa. However, over time, your different partnership needs can cause a few problems. Your partner's approach to love is sensitive and intuitive, while you tend to be more practically inclined. You prefer to have tighter control in the emotional department. However, both of you are very mindful of the future. You are both quite willing to commit, although somewhat unsure about it at the beginning. This slow and cautious approach to commitment likely stems from the fact that both of you know that you are responsible people and rushing into something might get you into something that can be difficult to break. This might mean that your relationship takes some time to get off the ground, and your partnership can involve quite a bit of "feeling each other out", and in some cases outright testing of each other, in the initial stages of romance. When your relationship settles, you will most certainly take good care of each otheryou in a practical sense and your partner in a nurturing way. You have much to learn from each other, and loads to offer one another. Your relationship will meet with the most success if you appreciate each other's differences, rather than single them out and use them as emotional weapons against each other. Dependability will characterize this pairing, and both of you put dependability near the top of your "lists" in the relationship department! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> Your partner is insatiably expressive in love relationships, often impulsive, and very demonstrative. You possess a more steady, practical view of relationships. Dramatizing feelings is as natural as breathing to your partner [he doesn't just like something, he adores it; he isn't simply hurt by what you say, he is devastated, etc.]. You, on the other hand, are more reserved about your feelings and desires, as you are cautious about letting another person into your heart. In fact, you may at times find gushy emotions uncomfortable and downright impractical. You may question the sincerity behind your partner's demonstrations. Both of you value loyalty and security in partnerships, but your styles of expressing love are radically different. Your partner needs to be reminded that the constancy of your feelings are very valuable. You are certainly more concerned about where your relationship is headed. Your partner, on the other hand, is living for the moment where love is concerned. If you share finances, similar conflicts can arise between you! Both in love and with money, you believe in moderation, and your partner is inclined to go overboard in both areas. Remember that your partner's ego is tied up in how you treat him or her, and there is the risk that your partner's apparent over-confidence will prompt you to want to curb it by limiting compliments! If this is the case, your partner is likely to lose interest fast. You need to understand that your partner is far more insecure in love than he or she lets on. You value solitude from time to time, and your occasional withdrawal is sure to fire your partner up. Your partner's head is often in the clouds when it comes to love, and his or her vision of the future is generally positive, while you are largely realistic. Sounds like an unlikely couple? It does, but if both of you are willing, you can certainly learn a lot from each other. You might enjoy your lover's ability to brighten up your day, and your partner will love your extraordinary sense of humor and commitment to making things work between you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> Both of you have Venus placed in earth signs, and the similarities between your needs in romance and partnership will be obvious. Security in partnership is a shared value, and each of you takes responsibility for their share of the relationship. Although pairing two earth signs sounds a little...well, dry...there is sure to be plenty of mutual respect and appreciation circulating between you! You cherish some moments of solitude, and that is something that your partner will need to understand and respect. There is no reason for him or her to feel threatened with this behavior, although it might just come down to that when you don't yet know each other well. Both of you are somewhat reticent at the beginning of a relationship, perhaps more so on your side, perhaps because both of you are responsible people who can be a little shy and cautious in matters of the heart. It may be slow-moving at the beginning as a result. However, this is a commitment-friendly combination as you will find much to trust in one another. Both of you have a work ethic and are relatively conservative with money. You will work hard at making things work, and so will your partner. Each of you is concerned about putting down roots. Criticism tends to come naturally to both of you, although you are more concerned about keeping it to a minimum so as to preserve the relationship's integrity. Both of you, and perhaps especially your partner, will have to try to channel it into constructive areas instead of letting loose on each other! All in all, however, this pairing is an easygoing and stable one. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committedonly in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. Your partner is most concerned with equality in relationships, and is often busy weighing the pros and cons from day to day. You are also concerned about your relationship, only you are somewhat more reserved when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to your partner, while practical expressions of love are important to you. You will appreciate your partner's commitment to you, deriving a sense of security from it. Your partner should appreciate your commitment as well, and is likely to feel very at ease with you. You exude a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for your partner! The attraction between the two of you is likely to be high. Your partner's willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for you to both appreciate and acknowledge that quality in your lover. In turn, your partner should acknowledge your stability in love, and appreciate the security he or she derives from this constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite this, and will go a long way towards compatibility. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> The passion you sense in your Venus in Scorpio mate is real, and this thought excites you. Although other lovers may find you a tad reserved and perhaps even undemonstrative in love, your Venus in Scorpio lover has a way of making you feel extraordinary. Because you both fear and crave intimacy, your partner is probably one of the most ideal people to get to you. You are intrigued, and your partner is sure to find you equally fascinatingeven a challenge. Your dedication to a relationship will be appreciated by your partner, probably more than most, and it is when you feel appreciated that you are at your romantic best. You both have strong personalities, in different ways, and this may cause some tension at times. However, neither of you can stay attracted to someone "weak" for too long, so the mutual respect can do wonders for your partnership. This is a stimulating combination, one with a lot of give and a lot of take. If anything, you will certainly never be bored with each other. Perhaps what you appreciate most from your Venus in Scorpio partner is his or her ability to see past your defenses. While others may be intimidated by your often cool and even aloof exterior, your partner knows there is a lot more to you. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> Your love natures and needs are quite different, which can set you up for both challenges and growth opportunities. Your partner throws him or herself whole-heartedly into the love of the moment, without much interest in long-term relationship planning. You, on the contrary, are considerably more cautious about starting a relationship, but once you make a commitment, it is a lasting and serious one. The potential clash here is the direction of the partnership. You want to garner some sort of security from plans for your relationship, while your partner is hell-bent on "winging it". Your partner attracts others with a friendly, optimistic personality, and you exude a certain quiet, cautious charm when it comes to love. Chances are that your partner is the more outgoing of the twonot necessarily in a general personality sense, but in terms of the kindling of your romantic relationship. Your Venus in Sagittarius lover's spiritedness was likely a big turn-on for you, at least at the outset. As things move forward, however, you might, if you are not careful, tend to pick at that very optimism, perhaps due to your own fears of being insecure in partnership. Your partner might complain that you take things too seriously, and wish for more "oomph" and adventurousness. Nevertheless, with understanding, you have much to offer each other. Allow your partner to loosen you up, as he or she offers a freshness and encouragement that is hard to find elsewhere, while you can most certainly help your partner to see the value of planning ahead and treating others with respect and concern. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Capricorn</b>Similar goals and similar needs in love provide a healthy and solid foundation for your partnership. No matter how different you are on other levels, the fact that your relationship needs are comparable can help smooth out your pairing. If you share finances, having both of your Venus signs in Capricorn can certainly help you see eye-to-eye on how you spend and save money. Both of you are able to save for a rainy day, and you appreciate that your partner is just as responsible in this respect as you are. Each of you can be a little shy or standoffish at first when it comes to getting to know each other intimately, so this relationship may take a bit of time to get off the ground, but once together, the mutual respect between you will certainly take you places. Of course, whenever we are combining two of the same signs, there is a risk of getting into a rut, but if you have enough differences in other areas of life, stimulation shouldn't be too much of a problem. You can rely on one another, and that is sure to feel good. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner's Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person you love. Your partner's aloofness, on the other hand, isn't hiding anything! Your partner is genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and is less interested in committing to one special person. Your partner enjoys making friends and sharing social activities with his or her mate. You are usually content to spend more private time with your partner than spreading yourselves around in a social sense. You are a little more possessive of your partner as well. Certainly, your partner will give you plenty of space to be yourself, and that is a true gift. However, you might be looking for something more substantial. Your partner has a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. His or her ability to reason is something you might appreciate, as long as you don't slip into the feeling of being threatened by that ability to detach. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Capricorn | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> Your Venus in Pisces partner is likely very drawn to your aura of strength and conviction. You exude an air that you "have it together", and this is very attractive to your partner, as he or she is not as regimented in his or her feelings for others. You, in turn, are likely to be intrigued with your lover's kind and hospitable nature. He or she actually listens to what you have to say, and understands it! Your partner's willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to you, as you are more disciplined and definite in what you want from a partnership. If the both of you can accept and appreciate each other's differences in expressing love, this can be a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. Your lover might find you too rigid in your expectations from the partnership, and you might easily find your partner's dreamy love nature too ethereal. However, this combination is a mix of Water [Pisces] and Earth [Capricorn], which can be very fertile. Your Pisces partner will be more able than most people to tap into your heart, uncovering the warmth underneath your somewhat cool exterior. You will appreciate your partner's adaptability and acceptance of your commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well. <br><br><br> ...........<br> <b>Aquarius Synastry | Venus in Aquarius</b> When your Venus is in Aquarius, you don't want to follow all the "rules" in love, preferring to love in your own way, unfettered by convention or what is "supposed" to be, or usually, done. You are future-minded, a tad unconventional [in love, anyhow] and there's an unmistakable "free spirit" in you that shows up most obviously in matters of the heart. This is not to say you cannotor will notfall in love. Infatuations happen easily, but true love can be a little elusive for you. When you do make a commitment, you are generally able to stick to it. The commitment you make generally has to be a little different in order to be tolerable to you, and you are proud of that difference. Following the beaten track simply doesn't sit well with you. You have an aloof air about you that others find attractive. If they are looking for a commitment from you at a later date, however, what was once considered charismatic might become annoying! It is easy for you to feel claustrophobic in relationships that are too close, too needy, or too demanding of your time. If you have the space to breathe a little, all the better. This is when you are at your best. You are a curious person and enjoy intellectual stimulation in your relationships. Although you are not someone who would be considered flighty, you do not tolerate stagnation very well. You need to feel like your relationship is heading somewhere. Your ability to detach yourself from a situation, take a step back, and look at it from a unique perspective is a tremendous strength. As willing as you are to stir things up if you are in the mood to enforce change, there is a wonderful calm surrounding you that can be most appealing to others. You are ahead of your time in matters of the heart, and you will be best off finding a partner who values your insight. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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 general theme when you are together. You are somewhat unpredictable when it comes to expressions of love, and your partner is more likely to appreciate this "quirkiness" than most Venusian signs, simply because he or she enjoys challenges and the feeling that a relationship is "alive". Furthermore, your unconventionality can be quite attractive to your Venus in Aries partner. While others might complain that you are a little too aloof, your lover is more apt to see that trait as a challengeand rise to it! The only difficulty with all of this is that your partner's desires in love are quite variable, and when they're turned on, he or she wants love and wants it right now. If you happen to be off on a tangent, seemingly in another world, your partner can quickly become impatient. However, both of you will give the other enough space to breathe, probably because you each need some independence. With your Venus signs in a sextile with one another, you are likely to appreciate and respect each other, off-moods aside. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Both of you are strong individuals with rather fervent ideas of what you want in a partnership, and those ideas clash in many ways! Your partner is more traditional than you are in his or her view of partnerships. Your lover values constancy and dependability in his or her relationships. On the other hand, you resist doing things that are tried and true, preferring to forge out a new path rather than traveling along the " beaten track". Your partner wants his or her love life to be uncomplicated, sensual, and comfortable. You know how to stick with things, as does your partner, and you aren't especially attracted to complications as well. However, you don't find comfort in a partnership that stays the same and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Your partner, on the other hand, seems to be quite content as long as his or her basic needs are met, and sometimes can even seem complacent. Ideally, the two of you will find a common ground, although it is difficult to predict who is going to budge, as you both can be somewhat stubborn! The only option is to try to learn from each other. Your quirkiness can be fun and even electric. Your lover can remind you how wonderful simple pleasures can be. With effort, your partnership can certainly work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You, more than most people, understand your lover's tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but you appreciate his or her changeability, seeing it as really quite natural. However, you are more stubborn than your partner. Your partner's moods change quickly, and while you can hardly be labeled predictable, you are not as flexible as your partner is. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, your partner is most inclined to be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterize your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while your lover works on keeping things fresh, you will help steady your partner. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> This combination can be a challenging one, simply because your styles and needs in love tend to be at odds with one another. Your partner craves a relationship that is very personal and committed, while you are more inclined to look for a classic friendship in any love relationship! The powerful initial attraction you may feel to each other is likely due to the fascination with the differences between you. There's a bit of quirkiness in you both, although yours is a direct and offbeat sort of charm, while your partner's charm is softer and more intimate. Your partner might find your behavior unsettling at times, simply because he or she is looking for a certain measure of security in partnership. You are a freedom-lover, and your love may seem universal and impersonalthe style doesn't hold the kind of intimacy and attachment that your partner craves. Your partner's tendency to wrap himself or herself around a partner is soothing and nurturing for some, and is probably attractive and fascinating to you, but can cause a problem if you begin to interpret it as stifling or restricting. Each of you can learn a lot from each other, as long as you are tolerant of each other's needs. Love can make it work, although plenty of adjustments are necessary to keep this union moving in healthy directions. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> This is the case of "opposites attract". Because Leo and Aquarius are opposite signs of the zodiac, you can be intrigued with one another, and really quite frustrated as well! In astrology, opposite signs can actually be easier to deal with than side-by-side signs because they work under a similar overall vibration. You, with your Venus in Aquarius, are most concerned with the greater group process, while Leo places great emphasis on personal and creative expression of the self. You express your feelings of love in a detached manner, and this can certainly frustrate your partner. Your partner has a fight or flight reactioneither he or she sees this as a challenge or runs in the opposite direction! You are largely objective, while your partner is subjective. Both of you like to be special and "different", but your partner wants to be special, where "special" means "the best" in a lover's eyes. You want to be valued for your uniqueness in terms of the group. Your partner is personal, involved, and intense in his or her romantic dealings; you are more impersonal and rather detached, able to see the bigger picture. So why, pray tell, do people say opposites attract? Because opposite signs fascinate each other. Each of you expresses a different loving style that holds some answers to what you may be overdoing in your own life. The promise of balance is there, somewhere, and both you and your partner may sense this "shadow" personality in the other. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> You get off on visions, possibilities, and opportunities. Your partner, on the other hand, is most concerned with making a relationship work. Mentally, you and your partner might have much to share. Both of you enjoy having meaningful conversations with the people you love. What you prefer to talk about may not be compatible, however! Your partner believes his or her needs are simple, and in many ways they are, although you might consider these needs unnecessarily complicated. Your lover responds best to practical displays of affection, and because his or her Venus is in an Earth sign, your partner most values your physical presence and attention. A partner who is always running off to see friends, for example, could make your lover feel somewhat insecure and decidedly unloved. You value exactly that freedom, so this is an area in your relationship that you both will need to work on. Your partner's need for appreciation is paramount. Otherwise, your lover is prone to feeling like he or she has done something wrong. You reveal your love in different ways, and the independence you need, if misunderstood, can lead to a fair share of worrying on your lover's part. Make sure your partner knows that if he or she feels comfortable enough to loosen up and be himself or herself, you will appreciate him or her all the more. Misunderstanding of each other's unique and different love natures is what is most likely to divide you. This relationship can be a little more challenging than some, but compassion and understanding can most certainly make it work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues surrounding the definition of your relationship. Whereas your partner values partnerships more than anything, you are more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. You can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but your partner is more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. You value peace and not only believe in equality, you treat people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to your partner. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through [and your partner's responsiveness in this department] can help smooth over rough edges. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> This is one of the more challenging combinations! With love, of course, it can work, but acceptance and understanding are especially vital. You are likely to be intrigued with your partner's love nature. It's intense and personal, and very passionate. While you are able to take a step back from many emotional issues in your partnership, if only to gain perspective and understanding, your partner has the hardest time doing just that. This can be complementary at times, but can also be intensely frustrating. It may not be very easy for your partner to "get" why you are capable of detaching yourself, and he or she may find it threatening to the basic love bond between you. You may be quite baffled by your partner's passionate reactions to you, as you tend to feel that getting too emotionally tangled up in problems is counterproductive. You value objectivity and pride yourself on your ability to reason things through. You may be inclined to react to your partner's more emotionally intense moments by giving him or her space. This is likely to frustrate your partner more, as he or she interprets your "stepping aside" as walking awayor, even worse, lack of concern for your relationship. This relationship can be rather tempestuous at times, but exciting nevertheless. At the very least, you will admire each other's strength of character. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 partner's approach to love, however, may be a little more impulsive and emotional than yours, as you tend to be much more calm and less excitable. When your partner gets excited about something, forging ahead with gusto, your collected demeanor may feel a bit like rain on his or her parade. If your partner remembers and accepts that he or she tends to be more expressive than you, and that his or her reactions to most things are immediate and emotionally-charged, things will run more smoothly between the two of you. You are more apt to analyze a situation before letting yourself 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. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> This is a somewhat odd combination, as your Venus sign position is in a next-door-neighbor sign to your partner's Venus. In astrology, next-door-neighbor signs generally have a difficult time finding common ground. However, there can be quite a bit of intrigue between the two of you. Each of you has a certain aloof quality about you when it comes to romance and love. However, your partner's manner hides an earthy sensuality and attachment to the person he or she loves. Your aloofness, on the other hand, isn't hiding much of anything! You are genuinely somewhat detached when it comes to relationships, and commitment is not your primary goal. You enjoy making friends and sharing social activities with your mate, while your partner is usually content to spend more private time with you than spreading themselves around in a social sense. Your partner tends to be more possessive of his or her partner as well. Certainly, you will give your partner plenty of space to be him or herself, and that is a true gift. However, your partner might be looking for something more substantial. You have a gift of being able to step back from a problem in order to find ways to solve it. Your ability to reason is something most people appreciate, as long as they aren't threatened by that ability to detach yourself. With love and understanding, this partnership can work. It simply might require more adjustments than either of you may desire. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Aquarius</b> No matter how different your personalities are, you share similar ideas and styles when it comes to relationships. Both of you value a partnership in which there is mental and social interaction. You are not impressed with relationships that are overly traditional or restrictive. As such, you are likely to give each other quite a bit of freedom. Whenever two people with the same Venus signs come together, the strengths lie in seeing eye to eye, and weaknesses stem from a lack of balance. In the case of Aquarius, intimacy may be wanting, as both of you are naturally inclined to live partnerships in the world of intellect. In the absence of a partner who works on creating emotional bonding and intimacy, you two may re-define partnership altogether. This could suit both of you just fine. Your union could be markedly free and different, perhaps considered unusual by some from the outside looking in. As both of you can be rather stubborn in love, there can be an imbalance. Even though you are both inclined to give the other freedom of movement and expression, neither of you is especially adaptable in terms of habits and mindsets. Although you are creative individuals, your interactions may eventually lack spunk or seem a little dry. As long as you both work on the intimate side of partnership, you will find that your relationship is progressive and excitingand decidedly unique! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Aquarius | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces</b> This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. You love to brainstorm with your partner, and in Venus in Pisces, you have found a completely fascinating brain to "pick". At times, however, your partner might try to back off from the microscope, as he or she is certainly more sensitive and moody than you are when it comes to relationships. He or she will gladly go along with your wonderful visions and ideals, but your partner looks for a connection that runs very deep. Although he or she will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoys your enthusiasm and your visions, your partner values tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. You might find your partner a tad too sensitive. If you are receptive, your partner is more likely than most to be able to infuse your creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take you places. You can help your partner tap into his or her own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship. <br><br><br> ............<br> <b>Pisces Synastry | Venus in Pisces</b> When your Venus is in Pisces, you love tenderly and compassionately. You are a peace-maker at heart, and your sensors are so strong that you pick up as much as possible, and perhaps more, from your partner. You have a sense of humor in love, although you have your shares of ups and downs, as you are a very sensitive person. Harshness bothers you. Wistfulness is almost as natural to you as breathing when it comes to love. No matter how you approach other areas of your life, there is a romantic side of you. You crave making a connection with a personmany would call it a deep connection, but spiritual is a better word, as your ideal love rises above rather than plunges below the mundane world. You can be devastatingly attractive to some people, and your charm is of a tender and soft quality. Others sense your warmth, but also some elusiveness. As much as you want to connect and share with another person, you also resist being pinned down. You prefer to enjoy a certain amount of freedom to act on your feelings, rather than through schedules or impositions. Sometimes you attach yourself to people because you have a hard time saying "no". However, you also have a hard time pretending for any length of time. Your exit from a relationship may not always be direct and quick. You are not always comfortable with being direct, simply because you don't like hurting people's feelings. You can sometimes seem like a chameleon in your relationships. People who share time with you, if they were to exchange notes about you, would likely have a very different impression of you. You can seem like a completely different person with different people not because you have a weak character. Because you are an emotional sponge, you pick up the needs of those around you. Your adaptability comes from a lack of personal boundaries in matters of the heart. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and it carries with it each and every sign. This explains, to a degree, your ability to slip into anyone's shoes without so much as a blink. So, with Venus, the planet of love and relationship, in Pisces, it is easy for you to pick up the needs of your partner and even adopt those needs as your own. Where do your needs start and end? It can be hard for you to distinguish what it is that you want because you very spontaneously and naturally soak in the needs and wants of a partner. You have an amazing capacity to understand people and to forgive. Just as you resist being pinned down to an absolute, a schedule, or a concrete definition, you also have a hard time drawing boundaries. In the process, however, you open yourself up to challenging situations and relationships. It is difficult for you to pass judgment on anyone in an absolute sense, as you have compassion for human failings, but sometimes it is the only way to close yourself off from a bad situation. Don't let others take advantage of your hospitality and empathy. Anyone who sees these traits as signs of weakness is likely preying on them! The right lover for you will recognize your kindness and your willingness to slip into someone's shoes as signs of strength! When that special someone has touched your heart, they are rewarded with a funny, sometimes kooky, and always tender-hearted lover. The right person for you will find you absolutely delightful, intriguingly changeable, and a treasure indeed. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries</b> 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. Your partner is more than likely the one to take the lead in this relationship. You can be somewhat shy and unsure with someone new, but very charming indeed. You possess a dreamy quality that can be very enticing to your Venus in Aries partner. But this very quality that hooks his or her interest in you in the first place, might get your partner impatient once the novelty fades away! Your elusiveness and downright evasiveness at times stands in stark contrast to your partner's style of expressing loveso much so that it could seem completely alien to you both. Your lover is direct and forthright in love, and usually appreciates the same in others. You don't come across in quite so clear terms, and this can confuse your partner. 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 enjoy understatement in romance, and your partner should understand and respect this quality. His or her bluntness may be appreciated by less sensitive souls, but you may sometimes be put off by a manner that seems far too brusque than necessary. In turn, you should learn to appreciate knowing exactly where you stand with your partner! It might bite sometimes, but it's honest. You have much to offer each other once you get past the matter of differing love "styles". <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus</b> Although you have your differences in the way you express love, this is a fertile and creative combination. Your partner is strong and dependable in relationshipsperhaps exactly what you need, at least most of the time! You don't always feel strong, simply because you are a sensitive soul who can be quite impressionable. A solid and steady partner such as your Venus in Taurus lover will help ground you. You are certainly more changeable and flexible when it comes to relationships, and you may view your lover's dependability as both positive and negative at different times, depending on your mood. Sometimes, you might find your lover too be a bit too set in his or her ways. Other times, you will appreciate the predictability and simplicity of your lover's needs in partnership. You can lean on your partner when you feel the need, and that is comforting indeed. Both of you appreciate art, although your tastes can be quite different. Your partner might sometimes complain that you are indecisive or too changeablemoody, perhaps. But if he or she recognizes that your tenderness [something that your lover is sure to value] is an absolute constant, your partner is sure to "overlook" your seemingly inconsistent states of mind. You can complement each other very well. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Gemini</b> Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your partner's desire for communication is strong, and you, too, want to connect with a partner. However, your lover places more value on mental stimulation while you value the power of understatement in romance. While your partner delights in having everything defined, you have a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. You rely on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering you for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get your lover very farperhaps only frustrated! Your partner's energy sometimes leaves you unsettled, while your elusiveness can be difficult for him or her to understand. Your partner's playfulness may, at times, unnerve you, as you can be somewhat sensitive, although quite forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairingboth of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer</b> This can be a highly rewarding partnership featuring plenty of devotion and dreamy attachment. Mutual respect is likely, and some similar goals in partnership and romance are sure to strengthen the bond. Both of you value understatement and innocence in romance, and an emotional attachment is important to you both. Your partner wants to take care of the people he or she loves, offering them security along with love, and you are particularly receptive to this nurturing style. The biggest problem that might arise between you is the following fundamental difference between your love natures</b> your partner is more clannish, specific, and personal in his or her affections, while you incline toward universal love. The sensitivity you express doesn't always make your lover feel special, as he or she sometimes may feel that you are in love with mankind in general, not just him or her! You may find that your partner tries to redirect your love into more focused channels. You may easily fall for the underdog, and your partner may feel that you are in need of a little directing in this respect. Your partner is also attracted to the needy, but he or she has met, in you, a soul who seems to be easily led astray, and he or she may spend some time trying to capture and tame this elusiveness that leaves him or her feeling a little disconcerted! If in fact you learn to understand and accept this basic difference in style, this partnership can certainly be a powerful one. It's an especially warm, devoted, and nurturing combination, and the ties you make with each other are sure to be unforgettable. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo</b> We are mixing Fire with Water with this combination. Your Venus in Leo partner is very direct and generous with his or her affections. You are probably just as generous, but your manner of expressing love is markedly different than that of your partner! The challenge here is to accept these different styles of love, something that Venus in Leo has difficulty doing [Leo is a fixed sign, and flexibility in the love department doesn't come easily to them]. Both of you are incurable romantics. Your partner's style, however, is personal, while your loving nature is less specific. You cannot quite call it impersonal, but "universal" may be the best term for your love nature. Your partner appreciates your warmth, but there is something about your approach, which is somewhat indirect and evasive, that seems a little threatening to your partner's ego. To your lover, you seem to be so warm and affectionate, but they can't help but sense that you love everyone that way, not just him or her. Your partner, more than anything, needs to feel special and unique in love, and it can be difficult to pin you down and get that specific attention that he or she craves [or demands!]. You two probably share a love of drama, music, and the arts. Your partner is likely to be quite flattered by your sentimentality and dependency. However, when your lover is unhappy with you, he or she can easily become theatrical. You may even interpret your lover's dramas as abusive, which can shock your partner because your lover considers his or her displays as honest and passionate. This apparent incompatibility is basically a difference in your styles of loving, as both of you are good-hearted. You are very sensitive in love, and can pick up all the subtleties of your partner's emotions in a flash. Your partner prefers you to be direct and to the point with your wants. This relationship can be simultaneously fascinating and frustrating! As Leo and Pisces are two markedly different signs, conscious efforts to understand each other and to make adjustments are necessary in order for this relationship to be harmonious. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo</b> This is a case of "opposites attract", except that when signs are literally opposite in Astrology, they share a common thread that can bind them together. This is a magnetic combination. You sense in each other a common sensitivity, but you express your love in different ways altogether. The truth is that you have much to learn from each other. Relationships become challenging when the very qualities that attract you to one another in the first place become a source of friction later. Always remind yourself that your partner is just thatyour partner, not an enemy. Your partner will appreciate your gentleness and sympathy, although he or she is apt to find you somewhat evasive at times. This is because while your partner is happy to define love, you prefer to leave some things unspoken. [You find it more romantic that way]. Faith in love is something you can teach your Venus in Virgo partner, if he or she is open to it. Your partner can help ground you, reminding you that order in a partnership is helpful for establishing a sense of purpose, when done in moderation. Moderation, in fact, is the answer to establishing balance in your relationship, and with love and compassion, you will find it easier than most couples to work toward that goal. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra</b> This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because the love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your partner's love planet [Venus] is an Air sign, while yours is a Water sign. While your partner approaches relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, you instinctively respond to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by feelings in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by thought. You need some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your partner's first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other's unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio</b> The two of you have different Venus signs, but they both are Water signs. This suggests an overall understanding for each other. You sense in each other a similar kind of depth in your approach to relationships, which can be an instant bond in and of itself. You love intuitively and emotionallyyou don't use your mind to judge whether a person is good for you or not. You need to feel the connection. The same goes for your Venus in Scorpio partner. Your partner is more focused on an intimate and exclusive bond than you are. You love deeply and with your heart, but your partner might wonder just how exclusive your feelings are towards him or her. Your lover wants to get under your skin, and is not always thrilled to share you with the rest of the world, so when you are expressing your compassion for pretty much everyone that comes into your world, he or she may feel a tad threatened. Your partner needs to understand your love of mankind in general. He or she might worry that you stray too easilyand it's not about you having an affair. It's more a concern that you are too impressionable. Why worry about the rest of the world when you have him or her? That's the kind of attitude you might expect from your partner, and this is probably your relationship's biggest issue. Otherwise, the two of you find much in common. You will appreciate your partner's intensity and depth of feeling. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius</b> 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 your partner is generally very direct about his or her needs in love, you don't always know what your needs are! And, if you do, they can be hard to define. You are compassionate and intuitive, and need to "feel right" about issues in and surrounding love. Your partner's emotions in love move much more quickly, and he or she may at times be impatient with his or her partner as a result. Your feelings in love are easily hurt, but your lover can have an attitude that truth and directness is the only way to go, and as a result, he or she may want you 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 otherand that is a lot! <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn</b> You might be very drawn to your Venus in Capricorn partner's aura of strength and conviction. Your partner exudes an air that he or she "has it together", and this is very attractive to you, as you are not regimented in your feelings for others. Your partner, in turn, is likely to be intrigued with your kind and hospitable nature. You actually listen to what he or she has to say, and your willingness to adapt and accept can be extremely attractive to your more disciplined partner. If the both of you can appreciate each other's differences in expressing love, this union can amount to a mutual admiration society. However, when the chips are down, these differences might cause challenges. You might find your partner too rigid in his or her expectations from your partnership, and your lover might easily find your dreamy love nature too ethereal. This combination is a mix of Water [Pisces] and Earth [Capricorn], which can be very fertile. You will be more able than most people to tap into Capricorn's heart, seeing the warmth underneath the somewhat cool exterior. Your partner will appreciate your adaptability and your acceptance of his or her commitments to the partnership and to other areas of life as well. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius</b> This is an unusual combination. You might find that you both share a universal love of mankind, and that you are both very idealistic people. Your partner loves to brainstorm with a close friend and lover, and in you, he or she has found a completely fascinating brain to "pick". At times, however, you might pull yourself from under the microscope, as you are certainly more sensitive and moody than your partner is when it comes to relationships. You will gladly go along with your lover's wonderful visions and ideals, but you look for a connection that runs very deep. Although you will happily engage in conversation, and thoroughly enjoy your partner's enthusiasm and vision, you value tender intimacy more than intellectual debate. Your partner might find you to be a tad too sensitive. You are more likely than most to be able to infuse your partner's creative, inventive mind with just enough emotion, inspiration, and imagination to really take him or her places. Your lover, in turn, can help you tap into your own creative wells and do something real with what is pulled out. The two of you can make a very productive pair as long as you can effectively combine the worlds of thought and feelings. Neither of you wants to waste time arguing about petty things, and both of you want to see the best in each other. These attitudes will help smooth your relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Venus in Pisces | How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Pisces</b> This is such a dreamy combination! You share Venus signs in the compassionate and tender sign of Pisces. No matter how different your personalities are, this Venus connection suggests similar needs from, and views of, partnership. Both of you are willing to adapt to the person you love, and offer each other tender affection. Both the strengths and the challenges lie in this underlying similarity. Each of you tends to need a partner who will do a little "directing" and "defining" in the relationship. Where are the boundaries? This is probably the main problem you will have with each other. You are both intuitive and not particularly practical when it comes to who, where, what, when, and how in love. You both thrive on a spiritual connection with your partner. You are likely to find it in each other, but you should also be mindful of some practicalities and realities in your partnership, or you may not be heading anywhere at all! However, this is a dreamy, romantic, and sweet union of two like-minded individuals. Ideally, elsewhere in your chart comparison, there are more stimulating and grounding connections between the two of you. <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Sun aspects</b> These are helpful aspects in any relationship. They create a sense of harmony and offer some common interests to the partnership. The Sun person feels more loving and beautiful in the presence of the Venus person. The Venus person finds the Sun person quite charming and intriguing. There is a mutual attraction here that, on its own, is not as insistent or sexual as other indicators [such as VenusMars or VenusPluto]. Perhaps the most apt keyword for this combination is contentment. The more difficult aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] can point to some problems and discord. The value system of the Venus native in this case is at odds with the Sun native's general outlook and life path. Each person tends to overindulge the other at times, and frustrate one another the next day. Read more details about VenusSun aspects in synastry. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Moon aspects</b> These aspects smooth out many of the more difficult aspects in a relationship. Although these relationships are not immune to ups and downs and disagreements, the presence of this aspect in synastry creates an overall sense of harmony and compatibility. The attraction here has less to do with sexuality than it does with familiarity. These people have a strong need to set up house together and spend as much time with each other as possible. It is an aspect that almost demands physical presence these people feel the need to be around each other, even if they are not interacting. They enjoy each other's company, and there is often a fair share of tenderness and care between one another. When challenging, the Moon person may at times find the Venus person a little too playful at the expense of his or her own feelings. The Venus person may be tempted to turn on the charm when the Moon person is having problems instead of sincerely confronting and resolving problems. Glossedover problems can undermine the integrity of the relationship and of the emotional commitment. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Mercury aspects</b> These interaspects are helpful for creating some common interests between the individuals. These people may enjoy happy exchanges and pleasurable, shared activities. Generally, there is a lot of "talk" in the relationship. Hard aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] point to misunderstandings that disrupt the flow of the relationship. There can be complaints that each person talks a little too much. There is such a strong desire to communicate with each other stimulated by these aspects that it can sometimes seem like each person is vying for the stage, or the chance to speak. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Venus aspects</b> The conjunction, sextile, and trine point to compatibility in relationship values and styles. There can be a wonderful feeling of ease and comfort with each other. With the trine and sextile, although the partners' individual styles of expressing love and affection are different, they are similar enough to feel much in common, and dissimilar enough to keep things interesting and dynamic. It is easy to be romantic with each other without feeling like they have hurt their partner's feelings with a style that is too aggressive or too passive, too intimate or too impersonal, and so forth. The quincunx creates a stimulating attraction, albeit a frustrating one at times. The opposition and square both point to attraction, but the attraction can be a frustrating one at times. The friction is caused by a lack of understanding due to different styles and needs in love, and the result can be both individuals feeling unappreciated. Partners should make every attempt to look beyond the style of relating and into each other's hearts. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Mars aspects</b> These are classic aspects, although they can be rather troublesome. Any aspect between these planets in synastry points to sexual and romantic attraction. Sexual magnetism of an insistent quality is found in the conjunction. Sextiles and trines produce attraction that is not as insistent or competitive as the hard aspects. Rather, the attraction is smooth and pleasant. However, the square, opposition, and quincunx can cause friction at the same time. There is considerable attraction, but over time, this sexual energy can become disruptive when left unchecked. Remember that the more difficult aspects have great value in that they stimulate people. Arguments often augment the sexual act in some way. The square tends to be the most troublesome interaspect between Venus and Marssexual attraction exists and is powerful, but sex is often delayed as the couple tends to engage in arguments that take time to work out before they do what they really want to do. Here, sex is probably the root of the arguments, even if this is not immediately apparent. These couples may try to resolve this conflict by attempting to consciously let down their defenses, turn off their egos, and just have sex. This way, they may find that they have much less to argue about. The reason for this is that the square gives tremendous physical attraction and tension that is very often disguised and mischanneled. The Venus person is easily hurt or offended by Mars. At times, the Mars person's direct approach is fully appreciated, but other times, the Venus person is offended by it. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Jupiter aspects</b> These aspects are generally quite helpful in any relationship. The presence of flowing aspects between these planets in synastry can help smooth out any relationship. Forgiveness is a key strengthening factor with this interaspect. See the discussion of Jupiter in Synastry below for more details. <br><br><br> <i>When Venus contacts the outer planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto you will find very dynamic interactions that evolve over time. When a relationship lasts long enough to let these energies play out completely, increased understanding and connection are possible.</i> <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Saturn aspects</b> When challenging, these interaspects can be difficult to deal with, but effort put forth to understand the interplays will result in enormous increases in understanding of the partners both individually and as a couple. There is often a strong need to be with each other. With the troublesome aspects [opposition and square], the sexual relationship may start out just fine, but later can become unpredictable, stunted, or sporadic. Spontaneity is lost, and this is generally due to power struggles in the daytoday life of the couple. The Venus person often feels oppressed and restricted by the Saturn person. In fact, Venus may feel criticized and nagged, and Saturn may feel an unhealthy need to control and restrict the Venus native. This general conflict can lead to problems in the bedroom. With the sextile and trine, however, there is a steady and stable quality to the love and affection for each other, but some reserve or selfconsciousness regarding the expression of feelings, romantic desires, and sexuality is present nevertheless. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Uranus aspects</b> These aspects offer excitement and thrills. The problem with this aspect, which is most apparent when the aspect is a conjunction, square, opposition, or quincunx, is that there may be an overall dissatisfaction with each other. Although sex can be especially excitingeven ecstaticwith each other, the partners may easily become restless, as there is an unsettled feeling between the natives that is persistent. When one person [especially Venus] is feeling romantic and loving, the other person [usually Uranus] is distant. When the interaspect is a flowing one [sextile or trine], the relationship may also be somewhat erratic, but this quality pleases both individuals. They may delight in the fact that their partnership is a little offbeat, and never dull! <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Neptune aspects</b> These aspects are evolving and involving. They tend to play out over time in different ways. At first, the relationship is allconsuming. There is a feeling of soul connection. Slowly, realities surface themselves. Things do not seem as wonderful as they first appeared. Many couples with these aspects in synastry can overcome these little letdowns, as long as they let the relationship play out long enough. Eventually, they may find that the feelings come full circle. The difference is that they will come to realize that while what they loved the other person for at the outset of the relationship may not have been based on reality, they have the huge potential to love each other for who they really are. The difficult aspects [opposition, square, and quincunx] can result in disappointment and bitterness. Read more details about VenusNeptune aspects in synastry. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Pluto aspects</b> These aspects point to intense and magnetic attraction. They figure strongly in relationships that are longlasting and significant. Love with these people is intense and transforming. This interaspect demands physical presence. When the natives are apart from each other, jealousies can arise. The difficult aspects generally play out as an emotional rollercoaster ride, with extreme swings from loving intensely to antagonism. <br><br><br> <b>Venus | Chiron aspects</b> These aspects are powerful indeed. Look for the conjunction, trine, and sextile, in particular, as an indicator of true love. There is a healing quality to the relationshipone in which the natives feel that the love they have can heal the wounds they might have accumulated in relationships past. These people feel a strong need to be together, set up house together, and go the distance with each other. There can be a true feeling of joy in the love they share with one another. When the aspect is challenging, however, there can be irrational behavior and reactions to each other that are based on wounds of the past, carried forward into the present relationship. <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <b>Mercury in Synastry</b> Mercury crossaspects and interactions deserve some attention in any study of the dynamics of a relationship. See our article, Mercury in Synastry for more information. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Synastry</b> is the planet of sexual expression and desire. It shows us our animal instincts. While Venus rules romantic attraction, Mars indicates a more animal need for sex and assertion. It is important to note that Mars in synastry does not point to the need to be together forever. But, if other indicators of love and relationship are already present in synastry, strong Mars connections will help [or hinder] the relationship, mostly in the bedroom. When powerful interaspects of Mars occur, sex may not be as ecstatic and rich as those indicated by Venus, but it may be quite satisfying on a basic body level. When Mars figures strongly in synastry, but the aspects involved are quite difficult, the couple may find a lot to argue about. Even though Mars aspects may not bring together people in the first place, they have a lot of value. The conflict that they bring to a relationship can be difficult at times, but invigorating as well. If the individuals are growthoriented, the basic truths that Mars interaspects bring will contribute to overall satisfaction. When Saturn is not involved, this couple will argue, and the growth that they pull from the conflict will likely spur them to have great sex together. MarsSun interaspects generally highlight action and physical attraction. The difficult aspects can indicate a passionate relationship that is filled with conflict. MarsMoon interaspects can be very sexy and sometimes volatile. Emotionalism and domestic arguments can figure strongly in such a relationship when the difficult aspects are involved. MarsMercury interaspects, when flowing, indicate passionate and stimulating conversations. When difficult, regular discussions quickly turn into arguments. The Mars native may show insensitivity to the Mercury native's point of view. MarsNeptune aspects are generally indicative of sexual attraction, which can be disruptive and variable if the aspects are difficult. MarsPluto interaspects are similarly stimulating, though more intensely so. Difficult aspects can create battles of wills that threaten harmony. One of the most difficult aspects to occur between two charts is MarsSaturn when it is in conjunction, square, or opposition. Unless the partners involved are prepared to work on the relationship with a sincere desire for growth, the tensions, frustrations, and blockages can feel insurmountable. Read more about the challenges of MarsSaturn in synastry. Comparing the signs of each individual's Mars can be illuminating. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in the Elements</b> What motivates people? What gets them out of bed in the morning? How do they go about getting what they want? Look to the position of Mars in the natal chart for answers. <br><br><br> <b>Mars | Fire</b> are generally quite passionate. When they get angry, those around them generally know it. There's very little pretension with this position of Mars. They very much like to get what they want, and they generally won't hide this fact from you. These natives are far too impatient to play mind games or to employ too much strategy in order to get where they want to go. <br><br><br> <b>Mars | Earth</b> are rarely aggressive, but they absolutely are determined individuals. Their goals in life are often quite practical ones that are realistic and attainable. They get up in the morning with the idea that they must work for what they want in life. There is a basic resourcefulness to Mars in Earth. <br><br><br> <b>Mars | Air</b> are generally have many interests and drives. These natives are especially clever about getting what they want. Unlike Mars in Fire, Mars in Air natives are quite capable of adopting airs and tactics to get and do the things they want. These natives are quite polished in manner. They'll rarely offend you in an overt way, preferring to settle things on an intellectual level. <br><br><br> <b>Mars | Water</b> are generally quite adept at strategy. They are emotional and instinctual people. They are unlikely to be directly aggressive about getting what they want in life. These natives feel their way through life feelings and actions work in tandem. Although they generally aren't as flexible and polished as Mars in Air, they do employ tactics and often use roundabout ways to fulfill their desires. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Fire | Mars in Earth</b> There is often a conflict between creative instincts [Fire] and physical desires [Earth]. While Fire rarely thinks before it acts, Earth is deliberate and careful. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can help Fire Mars slow down; Fire Mars can help stimulate Earth Mars to be more creative. Common Ground</b> Both Fire and Earth are rather self-centered in their desires, and both want to put their plans into action. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Fire | Mars in Air</b> They will often find some common ground both are restless individuals who want to grow and expand. However, Mars in Air can be baffled by the way Mars in Fire takes things quite personally, and seems overly concerned with themselves, often ignoring other people's perspectives. Fire Mars tires of Air Mars's desire to talk about everyone else's points of view. Air Mars's theories and plans can be too detached, lighthearted, and lacking in passion for Fire Mars. Most frustrating is Air Mars's concentration on theory, simply because Fire Mars wants action. How they can benefit each other | When they consciously try to learn from each other, Fire can help Air infuse some passion and zeal into their lives, and help put some of Air's ideas into action. Air can help Fire by offering more detached, impersonal points of view. Common Ground</b> Both Fire and Air Mars people are positive, outgoing communicators. They both have a strong desire to learn and grow through their actions. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Fire | Mars in Water</b> Both individuals are intuitive and sometimes impractical people, but Water Mars may find Fire Mars too self-righteous and egoistic. Debates are fun for Fire Mars, while Water Mars prefers not to argue. Water Mars enjoys experiences that allow them to connect with their partner, while Fire Mars is far more excitable and self-centered in their expression. Fire Mars can be too direct and brash for the more sensitive Water Mars; while Water Mars can dampen the enthusiasm of Fire Mars, too often becoming the proverbial "wet blanket". Fire can quickly become impatient with Water's silences. How they can benefit each other | When they consciously try to learn from each other, Fire can help Water by infusing Water's plans with optimism and enthusiastic vision of the future. Water reminds Fire to be sensitive to others in their actions. Common Ground</b> Both Water and Fire Mars people intuit things rather than analyze them. They are both warm people. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Earth | Mars in Air</b> There can be a conflict between the Earth Mars's desire for results and Air Mars's curious, theoretical nature. Earth becomes impatient with Air's many theories, which often seem impractical to Earth. Air's biggest complaint is that Earth is stuck in the material world, and Earth's focus is far too narrow. What good is theory without practical application in the real world? Why waste so much time thinking?, asks Earth. Similarly, Air can quickly become frustrated with the subjective and overly practical Earth person. Life is not just about what can be done what is life without higher thought?, asks Air. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can help Air Mars handle the details of everyday life, bringing some practical value to Air's many theories; Air can stimulate Earth to think in objective terms. Common Ground</b> Both Earth and Air are dry thinkers who easily separate thought and communication from emotion and passion. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Earth | Mars in Water</b> There can be a conflict between realistic plans and dreaminess. Water Mars prefers to intuit their way through problems, while Earth attempts always to find practical solutions. Water is focused on the intangibles of life, and his | her thinking and communication is infused with emotion. Thus, Water can find Earth too hard-nosed and selfish, while Earth can easily get frustrated with Water's plans that seem too impractical and dreamy. How they can benefit each other | Earth Mars can give Water Mars some practical and useful tips on solving problems, while Water can teach Earth to consider the feelings of others when formulating plans. Common Ground</b> Both Earth and Water communicate in quiet ways, and are not given to as much analysis as the other elements. <br><br><br> <b>Mars in Air | Mars in Water</b> There can be a conflict between Air's need to be detached in thoughts and communication and Water's desire to keep things personal. Water Mars intuits his | her way through problems, while Air is endlessly analyzing and considering all sides of a situation. Water can become quite impatient with Air's need to analyze situations excessively. Water just "knows" things instinctively, while Air looks to the world around them for answers. Air seems to detach him | herself from emotions during a discussion, and this detachment can be frustrating to Water, whose approach is warmer and more subjective. How they can benefit each other | Water Mars can help Air Mars focus on a problem rather than scatter his | her intellectual energies. Water can help Air learn about what he | she really feels, rather than thinks. Air may help Water think more objectively, and communicate with more refinement. Common Ground</b> Both Water and Air are concerned with their partner's perspective, and care about what others think. Their plans and ideas are less self-centered than those of Fire and Earth. <br><br><br> <b>Mars Aspects</b> When Mars in one person's chart forms a major aspect with Mars in their partner's chart, desires and passions are stimulated. These people will do a lot together. When the aspect is difficult [if it forms a square or opposition], the relationship can be a tempestuous one, as the individuals involved often get caught up in a battle of wills. Competitiveness is often the result. <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <b>Jupiter in Synastry</b> When Jupiter in one person's chart forms aspects with a personal planet or Ascendant in their partner's chart, a special relationship is formed. The Jupiter person tends to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. Jupiter sees the good in the area of life and energy of the other's contacted planet. Jupiter doesn't tend to blind itself to the negative [that is Neptune's job!]. It simply searches for the positive, and finds much to like about the person. You can think of the Jupiter taking on the role of loving father who naturally finds goodness in his child. This is not the kind of father who refuses to see the "bad", or who totally glorifies or idealizes his child. In fact, Jupiter is quite likely to see the negative, but he only wants to see his child grow, and easily excuses the less desirable traits, preferring to think that the good outweighs the bad. He is unthreatened by the child's behavior. The Jupiter person in synastry wants to help out, cheer up, and encourage the other person. Jupiter gets the most pleasure when he sees his loved one grow. Therefore, if Jupiter contacts another person's Moon, the Jupiter person will find the Moon person's expression of his emotions, family values, and natural habits really quite wonderful and pleasing. Jupiter will encourage Moon to emote, to feel, and to seek security. Jupiter will have a strong need to protect the Moon person. When Jupiter contacts Venus, a pleasing attraction occurs between the two individuals. In the final analysis, Jupiter will give the Venus person the benefit of the doubt at all times. Jupiter will forgive, and even forget. Under Jupiter's influence, the Venus person will feel free to express his or her relationship needs, desire for pleasure, and romantic inclinations. The two will have a grand time, full of natural humor and enjoyment. There is a strong desire for peace, and forgiveness comes very easy. If the aspect is troublesome, they may also encourage each other to overindulge. This is when Jupiter becomes the indulgent father. The desire to see the other person enjoy life may be taken a little too far. Jupiter aspects in synastry are generally very helpful. While other difficult aspects may exist in synastry, overall goodwill between the individuals will outlast the conflicts. At the very least, even if these two end up parting, they will do so on good terms, remaining special friends. <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <b>Saturn in Synastry</b> Saturn interaspects can be viewed as some of the "glue" that binds people together, but they can be tricky to manage. Read more about Saturn in Synastry. When Saturn in one chart forms an aspect with another person's personal planet or point, the energy interplays between the two people are distinct. Saturn is the planet of restriction, commitment, and reality. We usually find Saturn interaspects with personal planets in long-lasting relationships. These aspects play out over time and often manifest in clear stages. At the outset, there can be some resistance or reluctance to forming a relationship and | or a commitment with each other on one of the individuals' parts, as if he or she senses that committing to the other person will involve something heavy. Once that initial reluctance [which can range from vague to explicit, depending on the power of the Saturn interaspects and the individual temperaments involved] passes, there is generally a wonderful feeling of familiarity and safety with one another. These people feel closely connected. Saturn interaspects tend to be very binding. As time passes, and especially once a commitment is made between each other, the personal planet person will inevitably grow in that area of life or part of the personality represented by the personal planet. [Note that a commitment doesn't necessarily literally mean marriage. It can be as simple as a commitment that the partnership is a one-to-one relationship, or that it is exclusive.] What generally happens is that the security that bound the two together in the first place feels threatened on the part of the Saturn person as the personal planet person changes or grows. Saturn resists change, and feels threatened by it. The Saturn person may exercise some kind of control over the personal planet person some form of restriction. This can take the form of criticizing the energies expressed by the personal planet person. Let's take an example of Mercury conjunct Saturn in synastry. At the beginning, there can be a real feeling of mutual respect regarding how each person uses his or her brain, how they communicate, and how they think. The Mercury person may, in some ways, look up to the Saturn person, who tends to display a rather mature way of thinking that Mercury admires. Mercury may look to Saturn for advice, and Saturn responds with much enthusiasm, delighting in helping Mercury, and even teaching him or her. As time goes on, inevitably Mercury will excitedly share an experience wherein he or she had an enlightening conversation with a friend outside of their relationship. Saturn can feel mighty threatened by this simple experience. Saturn does not feel comfortable with that initial bond changing, or what he or she perceives as changing. Why isn't Mercury turning to him or her? Saturn may deal with this fear by putting down the experience, punching holes in the theory that this threatening "other" has presented to Mercury. It doesn't even have to be about another person. Perhaps Mercury discovered on his or her own a new way of thinking that inspired him or her. This can be just as threatening to Saturn, who finds security in that initial bond that felt exclusive and special, whereby Mercury and Saturn came together with a mutual understanding that they turned to each other for advice and inspiring conversations. In fact, anything that happens outside of the relationship in the area represented by the personal planet can be seen as a threat to the exclusive bond the couple had at the beginning of the relationship. In truth, the bond is likely still there from the point of view of Mercury. But Saturn sees it differently. Saturn fears anything that threatens the initial bond they formed, and sees any signs of growth on Mercury's part as a threat to that bond. We have all seen Saturn in synastry at work in some shape or form. An example involves a couple who initially bonded with each other on many levels, one of which was a shared sense of humor. In this case, the woman's Mars formed a square to the man's Saturn. In the early stages of their relationship, the woman found the man very funny. She broke into giggles at his jokes, and she expressed to him how she never laughed so much with a person in her life. As time passed, she felt that whenever she found someone else funny or even something else funny, her partner came down on her in some way. He passed her a look of disapproval when she broke into giggles at something that wasn't coming from him. His look would say, "What the heck is wrong with you?" Sometimes, he wouldn't just pass her a disapproving or superior look. He would say things like, "I really don't know why you find that so funny." As time passed, a dark cloud formed above the couple. She didn't giggle as freely, as there is nothing more flattening as breaking into belly laughs only to be met with a look that says, "You're so immature". She began to feel that they didn't share the same sense of humor, even though they most certainly did at the beginning of their relationship. The man felt threatened by his partner finding humor in anything that did not originate between them. She began to feel unnatural around him, restricted, like he rained on her parade. She also began to view experiences when he was not around as a huge release. When they were apart, she felt more free to be herself. Thus, a distance was created between them. Saturn in synastry is intriguing because what begins as a strong sense of security and comfort felt between a couple can eventually degenerate into feelings of pressure to stay the same, and an overall sense that one does not want the other to grow or develop. Saturn generally is the one who wants the bond to be exclusive, and although the personal planet person generally wants the same thing, that personal planet person feels enormous pressure to be a certain way and feels like he or she is not free to express him or herself in a natural and dynamic manner. With repeated experiences in which the personal planet meets a critical or cold response from Saturn as a result of a spontaneous comment or action, the personal planet begins to censor himself or herself, and spontaneity is lost. Distance between the two is created, and a sense of being stifled, restricted, and censored slowly erodes the bond that felt so darn good at the beginning of their relationship. The personal planet person feels like he or she has to constantly monitor what he or she does or says in the presence of the Saturn person. Let's explore Moon-Saturn interchart aspects as another example. This cross-aspect is a powerful one. Either one [or both] people involved may have made it clear at some early point in the interaction that this relationship was to be a serious or committed one. Whether or not it was verbalized, the air of responsibility is explicit. Although the relationship may begin with some element of enthusiasm, over time, Moon may feel the need to censor feelings of dependency on the relationship and on Saturn himself for some reason or another. Moon may also feel the need to censor self-expression, feeling almost like a child facing a disapproving adult. Moon may sense a certain level of seriousness and even harshness or narrowness in Saturn that may not even exist in absolute terms. Saturn may not even be aware of this unconscious reaction to Moon. Whatever it is, Moon can feel somewhat constrained by the relationship, and unable to express the "child" within, simply because of the expectation that Saturn may not approve, may not be capable of understanding, or may not be equipped to handle these expressions. The sense that Moon gets is that Saturn's needs for commitment are paramount, and that "frivolous" expressions of neediness or dependency wouldn't be appropriate; or that expressions of dependency on anything or anyone else will be met with Saturn's disapproval. It may also be that situational factors are such that true emotional intimacy is blocked, even though both parties want to get closer to each other. The caution here is to avoid too much "censoring" to the point that Moon feels emotionally isolated, misunderstood, or blocked. Does Saturn truly benefit from this kind of "censoring"? Certainly not in the long run, because if it gets out of hand, Saturn will lose touch with Moon's deepest needs, fears, and desires. Emotional distance doesn't benefit either person. The chemistry in this relationship brings out the individual need for security and safety in both people, and each will certainly find a basic sense of safety with the other. Although Moon in particular may feel emotionally frustrated at times, there is a feeling of constancy and dependability in Saturn that is very attractive. This relationship stands much chance of being a long-lasting one. However, it can have its fair share of ups and downs. Periods of emotional distance and subsequent feelings that the relationship may be too "heavy" to maintain are often followed by tearful and emotional "reunions" when both parties feel that they need each other desperately, and that the attachment runs deeper than is always apparent. It is easy to see, with this kind of pattern, that either or both individuals could feel "trapped" together at times! But the truth of the matter is, given the depth of the attachment to each other, there is much to gain from working on the intimacy issues described above. Saturn needs to face his or her fears and consciously work on not clamping down on Moon, and Moon, instead of reacting defensively to Saturn, must also look to see whether Saturn does have a point, so to speak, and Moon can actually benefit from some of the more reasonable boundaries that Saturn seems to draw. Karma is associated with Saturn, where the personal planet person feels some sort of personal debt to the Saturn person. The Saturn person seems to have the upper hand in the relationship, at least for a while. Both parties must be more mindful of what exactly they are doing. A balance is possible, as the personal planet person may benefit from Saturn's impositions, at least ones that are not purely based on fear. Maybe the personal planet person does need to learn to be more responsible and could benefit from some maturation, and Saturn can learn to loosen up in certain ways. Reacting defensively to each other will only exacerbate the problem. Saturn trines and sextiles are generally considered supportive. They do have some of the characteristics described above, but generally there is less defensiveness between the two, and criticism is constructive if it exists. This goes both ways the Saturn person is less threatened, and the personal planet person less defensive when faced with Saturn's restricting energy. It is certainly easier to learn from each other this way. Nevertheless, even with flowing aspects involving Saturn, the chemistry is such that there is a characteristic reserve or self-consciousness present in the relationship with regards to the expression of feelings, romantic desires, will, intellect, or sexuality, depending on the personal planet involved. Although parallels are likened to conjunctions, when Saturn is parallel a personal planet in synastry, the interplay is easier than the conjunction. The Saturn person is not as inclined to criticism or control. Rather, the stabilizing influence of Saturn is more prominent. Important Note</b> Personal planets overlaying the tenth house of a partner's chart can express similarly, where the tenth house person takes on a Saturnine role to the personal planet person. <br><br><br> <br><br><br> <b>Soulmate Astrology | Karmic & Soul Mate Connections in Astrology</b> <br><br><br> <b>Things to look for in Synastry | Feel The Rhythm</b> Ascendant Connections</b> Never underestimate the power of the Ascendant! It may be easy to underplay, or even dismiss altogether, the Ascendantís role in interpersonal relationships when we think of the Ascendant as the ďmaskĒ we wear when we meet others. If the Ascendant is a mere mask, shouldnít it only be important at the very beginning of a relationship? We donít think so. In fact, we feel that the Ascendant has an ongoing, vital role in relationships of all kinds, including long-lasting, one-to-one relationships. We have found that interplays between Ascendants can be the source of basic conflict or harmony, on a body level. Remember as well that the Ascendant defines the Descendant, which is a highly sensitive relationship point in the natal chart. <br><br><br> <b>You Complete Me | Grand Trines in Synastry</b> In our experience, one of the most powerful indicators of special relationships occurs when a simple trine in one person's natal chart is effectively turned into a Grand Trine by another person's planet[s], particularly when it involves personal planets. For example, in one person's chart, Mars is in the early degrees of Sagittarius and trines the Moon in the early degrees of Aries. A planet in the early degrees of Leo would form a Grand Trine in this native's chart, but doesn't exist. Her partner's Sun fills this pattern, as it is in the early degrees of Leo. This powerful connection is especially potent when it is reciprocated. A special bond exists between the natives. <br><br><br> <b>Grand Trines</b> this aspect pattern involves three points [three or more planets may be involved] that form mutual trines to each other. when lines are drawn from each planet to the other in a natal chart, a triangle results. <br><br><br> <b>Nodes of the Moon</b> The Nodes of the Moon tend to be very significant in synastry. Strong Nodal ties are powerful. The individuals are drawn to each other. In the natal chart, the Nodal axis suggests powerful lessons an individual needs to learn in this lifetime, and when A's Nodal axis falls on personal planets or points in B's chart, the magnetism is powerful indeed. Perhaps B will play a large role in A's life, and either represent or force A to live out some of the issues inherent in the condition of the Nodal axis. If person A's planet [especially a personal planet] conjuncts B's South Node, the connection is there, no doubt. Person A will feel extremely comfortable with person B, at first. However, person A will eventually feel that the relationship drains him | her of energy, and may feel the need to move on and release him | herself from the relationship, as the relationship pulls him | her into the past. We all face our North Node issues at some point in our lives [we often start the process in our 30's!]. If another person is emphasizing our South Node without equal or greater aspects to our North Node, we may feel held back and "outgrow" that person! Also note that there can be some uneasiness and hesitance when the Nodes, especially North Nodes, are strongly contacted by the planets and points of another person. The magnetism can be strong [and it isn't necessarily sexual, occurring in platonic friendships and relationships as well], but a certain amount of fear can be present [on the part of the Node person]. One way of looking at Nodal contacts in synastry</b> A person's planet conjunct your North Node is pulling you forward, toward lessons that you need in order for spiritual growth and happiness. But you may be somewhat reluctant to face these issues, depending on "where you're at" in the path. A person's planet conjunct your South Node is pulling you back into familiar territory. There is something "easy" about the relationship, and the lure can be strong, although you may eventually sense that you need something more, which can be viewed as "outgrowing" the relationship or even the person. Saturn conjunct the Nodes can be a separative aspect. I am not as yet certain of exactly why this is the case, but I have seen it time and time again where Saturn conjunct the North or South Node in a composite chart or in synastry is present in romantic relationships that don't get off the ground properly. <br><br><br> <b>You are Made for Me | The Vertex</b> A lesser known point in any natal chart is the vertex. It acts almost like a secondary descendant. Strong interaspects involving the vertex are found in the synastry of people who feel they are made for each other. There is a fated quality attached to the vertex. <br><br><br> <b>Sign Interchanges</b> When sign positions of planets are interchanged, there is a special compatibility and fascination. For example, if one person has a Sun in Aries and Venus in Taurus, and another person has Sun in Taurus and Venus in Aries, although they will act quite differently, this pair will have some interesting exchanges in their relationship. <br><br><br> <b>I Feel For You | Sun | Moon Contacts</b> When one partner's Sun makes an aspect with the other's Moon, there is a natural affinity. The Moon person supports the Sun in quiet but meaningful ways, and the Sun person returns the favor with an affirming energy. <br><br><br> <b>You Rock My World | Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto [and Chiron] Connections</b> When the outer planets [Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto] figure strongly in the synastry of two individuals, there is generally a powerful feeling of being uplifted and transformed through contact with each other. Chiron figuring prominently in synastry seems to be just as potent. <br><br><br> <b>You Give My Life Meaning | Sun | Moon Midpoint Connections</b> A person's Sun | Moon midpoint [] is a point of great sensitivity. In a natal chart, planets that form a hard aspect to this point are highlighted, and tend to reveal a strong sense of destiny and identity. Naturally, when a planet in another person's chart makes a hard aspect to this point in a native's chart, that other person tends to give the native a feeling of purpose and meaning. <br><br><br> <b>Sun | Moon Midpoint</b> in the natal chart is a highly sensitive and personal point. It is a mathematical point the point midway [or exactly halfway] between the Sun and the Moon. Inherent in the symbolism of the Sun | Moon midpoint is the desire for companionship. The Sun | Moon midpoint represents a point of "inner marriage" and symbolizes close personal relationship. This point is very important in any kind of relationship analysis, in addition to natal chart work. Note that with midpoints, it is customary to consider other planets and points that form the following aspects to the midpoint</b> conjunction, opposition, square, semi-square, and sesquiquadrature. When a planet makes any of these aspects to a midpoint, the notation looks like the following [where, for example, Venus is the planet forming one of these aspects with the Sun | Moon midpoint]</b> Venus=Sun | Moon or</b> = In synastry, the Sun | Moon midpoint is very often activated by the other person's personal planet in significant relationships. If another person's personal planet, and especially the Sun or Moon, forms an aspect such as the ones referred to above, that person represents some kind of promise of integration to the Sun | Moon midpoint owner. Whether or not integration actually happens, this synastry connection offers a promise which can be difficult to resist. Therefore, it is a strong indicator of attraction. Many astrologers assert that significant relationships that lead to marriage or a similar commitment contain at least one of the following interchanges in synastry</b> one person's Sun aspecting the other's Moon, and | or one person's personal planet aspecting the other's Sun | Moon midpoint. n.b. In order to understand the symbolism of the Sun | Moon midpoint, one must understand the symbolism of midpoints in general. Ebertin, respected as an authority on midpoints, defined the midpoint as a sensitive point in a chart where the influence of the two planets involved combine together. <br><br><br> <b>Asteroids | Eros & Psyche</b> Some astrologers are studying the role of asteroids in astrology. Strong connections between the asteroids Eros [] and Psyche [] in synastry point to a powerful romantic and sexual relationship. <br><br><br> <b>The Asteroid Eros</b> can shed some light on some of our erotic turn-ons. In mythology, Eros was the god of sexual love and desire. He was considered irresistible. In Roman mythology, Eros was known as Cupid. "In Greek art Eros was depicted as a winged youth, slight but beautiful, often with eyes covered to symbolize the blindness of love. Sometimes he carried a flower, but more commonly the silver bow and arrows, with which he shot darts of desire into the bosoms of gods and men." [Encarta Encyclopedia]. Eros overpowers the mind with love and sex. Eros represents sexual objectification, passion and desire, and creativity. Note that Eros is not always sexual, per se, as Eros represents creative passion as well. In the chart, it can point to areas into which we pour a lot of passion. <br><br><br> <b>House Overlays in Synastry</b> See just how important house overlays in synastry are in terms of how each person sees the other and what is expected from the relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Romantic Compatibility Analysis</b> <br><br><br> <b>More on Synastry</b> <br><br><br> <b>Summary of Techniques</b> <br><br><br> <b>The Composite Chart</b> The chart of a relationship! <br><br><br> <b>The "First Meeting" Chart</b> shows where a relationship is headed, and draws on Electional Astrology techniques. <br><br><br> <b>The Nodes of the Moon in Synastry</b> <br><br><br> <b>Indicators of Sexual Attraction in Astrology</b> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Astrologie Liefde Huwelijk Relaties </b> <br><br><br> Relatie Astrologie is the comparison of the charts of two (or more) persons for purposes of assessing relationship. Very accurate predictions, encouragements, and well-considered warnings based on planetary aspects can me made. As with aspects in general, the most weight is given to the conjunction, followed by the opposition, the square. The other aspects weight roughly equally. The harmonious aspects of trines and sextiles are pleasant and helpful. Conjuncties and Opposities will be where the most relevant action is. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Conjuncties</b><br> Conjuncties show where two or more factors go together, and the sign where this occurs may indicate of how that operates. "Attraction" in relation to Conjuncties, refer to all kinds of interest between people, not just romantic ones. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Opposities</b><br> Opposities show where one person opposes the natural thrust or way of being of the other. Sometimes Opposities can be complentary- at their optimal expression - most times they are stressful. It's hard to move forward in life <br>when one is constantly opposed by another, when one's valid goals and life impulses are being sabotaged or thwarted. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Vierkanten</b><br> Vierkanten in Relatie Astrologie are pesky irritations that may never go away, but are not necessarily problematic. Vierkanten often involve issues of "rightness," and emotional security that may be jeopardized by disagrees. They also provide "spice" and other viewpoints to consider. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Driehoeken </b><br> Driehoeken of Zons, moons, venus (and in the same element of earth, air, fire, or water) add greatly to the potential for attraction and harmony. This is especially true of the luminaries (Zon and Maan). <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Sextiel</b><br> Sextiel aspects add slightly to potential for communication and friendship, the possibility of building together, and helping each other to achieve goals. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon</b><br> Another's planets conjoining our Zon tend to get our attention and are hard to ignore. There are issues of respect,<br> power, admiration, authority, identity, self, health and vitality, well-being, self-confidence, radiance, and success.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Maan conjunct Zon</b><br> Usually a strong attraction, lots in common, quick bonding and mutual understanding, openness to each other. <br> Even if not a tight conjunction, having Maan and Zon in the sa sign in any degree is a very important aspect <br> in Relatie Astrologie, and usually makes for high compatibility potential and attraction if not mitigated by other astrological <br> and social/ethical/therapeutic factors. Maan opposition Zon usually brings out the complentary nature of both, <br> and is actually a positive aspect in relationship most of the time. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Mercurius conjunct Zon</b><br> Communication, ideas exchanged, ideas or approaches in common, lots to talk about, curiosity about each other.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Venus conjunct Zon</b><br> Pleasant, harmonious, helpful, possible attraction, admiration, goodwill, artistic and hobby interests in common.<br <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Mars conjunct Zon</b><br> Stimulating, possibly sexual, high energy, warring, and conflict. The Mars person may perceive the Zon person as authoritarian,<br> overbearing, or egotistical. The Zon person may perceive the Mars person as argumentative, touchy, and stuck on differences.<br> Can be good for the short term affair to get early sexual experience. Young women often unconsciously seek out a man whose <br>Zon is in the same sign as their own Mars for infactuation and early sexual experiences. These relationships almost never work <br>out long term - too many disagreements, Hopefully the choice for marriage will be astrologically quite different from their <br>earlier Zon-Mars choices. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Jupiter conjunct Zon</b><br> A general blessing for both parties, and financially beneficial for the Zon person. A most auspicious aspect.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Saturnus conjunct Zon</b><br> May begin as mutual admiration, but works to the detrint of the Zon person as time goes on. Good for intellectual pursuits<br> and admiration among colleagues or peers, and for demonstration of mastery. Both share high standards of excellence<br> and ethics. After a while the Saturnus person will resist the Zon person's efforts and presence, and the Zon person wil<br>l feel he can't do anything right, that even his very best is not good enough. Danger for the Zon person is loss of confidence,<br> loss of vitality, loss of sparkle, golden life turned black, depression, regrets. If criticism, intellectual gas and one upsmanship, <br> or competition co into play, the Zon person can feel quite overwheld. Can be a very deeply bonded connection, good for<br> lifetime friendship, professional colleagues if not competing against each other, useful in cooperative ventures involving<br> design and construction. Difficult in romantic or marriage relationships, and likely to put a damper or inhibition on sexual <br> relations early on.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Uranus conjunct Zon</b> <br> The Zon person is stimulated on many levels, and slightly unnerved or made nervous by the presence of the Uranus person. <br> The Zon person can never fully relax in the presence of the Uranus person. The Uranus person gives full permission<br> for the Zon person to be an individual, bright person, entrepreneurial, spiritually aware, alive, and socially unconventional.<br> A stimulating relationship for friends and associates, but could be too hard on the Zon person's health and nervous system<br> to be around the Uranus person all the time. The Uranus person keeps the Zon person slightly off balance, which can be<br> good at times for shaking up the status quo, troubleshooting, and a proverbial whack on the side of the head, but not <br> all the time. The Uranus person can make the Zon person more accident prone.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Neptunus conjunct Zon</b><br> A gentle, intuitive, refined, spiritual quality. Shared spiritual or aesthetic interests. Telepathic rapport likely. Relationship<br> needs several reality checks if you're planning to do anything important together, as these two together can be unrealistic<br> or ungrounded, over-optimistic and starry-eyed at times.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Pluto conjunct Zon</b><br> A powerful and possibly explosive influence, one that will be deeply transformative, and may involve life an death matters,<br> with high intensity. For the Zon person, it's like sitting on top of a rumbling volcano, and getting your deepest fears and <br> subconscious stirred up where they were not before. The Zon person is likely to feel a bit intimidated and uneasy around<br> the Pluto person, yet there is the potential for deep telepathy and mutual empowernt. The downside is power plays and <br> manipulations by the Pluto person, and more intensity and pressure than the Zon person can handle long term. Always <br> intriguing, and not for the timid! <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Chiron conjunct Zon</b><br> The Chiron person will work magic in fascination, however the Zon person will usually have most of the power in the<br> relationship. The Chiron person however may prevail and succeed in life longer than the Zon person, should Zon ever<br> reject Chiron. Chiron bring surprises to the Zon person and tries to heal him. If the other resists the opening for healing<br> created by the Chiron person, the relationship breaks down, and the Chiron person may get rejected. Chiron person<br> will try to fascinate, and the Zon person wants to be noticed and admired. Mutual admiration, high idealism, and open<br> ness to effective healing work best here.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Maan</b><br> Planets aspecting our Maan deal with our natural open receptivity, needs for unconditional love and nurturing, emotional <br> well-being, comfort, and security - very fundamental areas of life that must be taken into account. Most aspects to the Maan<br> are similar to that of the Zon above.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Maan conjunct Mercurius</b><br> One of the best aspects to have in any kind of relationship, fostering mutual interest and ease of communication.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Mars conjunct Maan</b><br> Exciting and irritating, and a woman's Maan conjunct a man's Mars tends to result in stress and tears for her sooner or later, <br> though there may be many other compatible factors. Mars tends to co on too strong, does not take the Maan person's needs <br> into account, and fosters emotional pain.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Mercurius</b><br> Aspects have to do with communications and shared ideas. Communication is a make-or-break factor in any relationship.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Venus</b><br> Aspects lend harmony, idealism, pleasantries, ease, shared values, beauty, attraction and sotis love.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Mars</b><br> Aspects are exciting, stimulating, energizing, and sexual, but also provoking, willful, argumentative, disagreeing, loud, blaming, <br> accusing, and sotis violent.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Jupiter</b><br> Aspects are expansive, allowing, prospering, blessing. In Jupiter Opposities, beware of bad judgnt due to another's influence. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Saturnus</b><br> Aspects are initially admiring, impressive, focusing, but later beco squelching, denying, rejecting, oppressive, critical, narrow <br> minded, blaming, accusatory, controlling, to the point of cold hearted cruelty - resulting in depression, apathy, hopelessness,<br> depression, inhibition. Saturnus tends to add longevity, glue, and concrete to relationships; Saturnus Conjuncties can be very<br> difficult to get away from, yet they sap life force and often must be gotten away from even though that's the last thing the<br> non-Saturnus person wants to do. Saturnus aspects are what the Magi Society and as well as self for many years have<br> called "the heartbreak aspects." No matter what the non-Saturnus person does, it is rarely ever enough, rarely right, rarely good<br> enough to co up to the Saturnus person's expectations or standards. More than speedbumps, the Saturnus Conjuncties especially<br> all too often end up being disastrous despite the best efforts of the non-Saturnus person. Saturnusian associations that remain<br> on an intellectual or more formal level with minimized contact can succeed and retain the mutual admiration.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Uranus</b><br> Aspects are exciting and stimulating on many levels, awakening, enlightening, shocking, unconventional, surprising.<br> Situations can begin quickly, then are over just as quickly and steriously. Useful for giving a broad variety of life experiences.<br> Uranus can be a shattering, explosive, and highly destructive influence if the Uranus person is so inclined.

There may indeed have been a past life connection with the two of you regarding thes of that planet. Sometimes<br> the Zuidelijke Maansknoop brings worldly losses with regard to the planet in question, but most of the time it is just an easy and <br> comfortable connection, especially for older souls on the spiritual path.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Chiron</b><br> Aspects bring attraction and fascination, also bizarre reversals, and this can go both ways or applied to both parties.<br> In the circumstances of ordinary life, Chiron aspects are a mutual monkey wrench in the works and often backfire.<br> The Chiron dance is a fascinating, treacherous one, sort of like watching a slow train wreck - you can see it happen, <br> but can't stop it, and can't take your eyes off it. There can be an obsessive, hypnotized quality to Chiron connections. <br> <br> <br> <br> There's always potential for healing with Chiron, and where effective healing is rejected, things tend to become chaotic,<br> with new wounds inflicted. Chiron aspects eventually 'hurt' both parties in a more involved relationship feeling very <br> wounded and regretting ever getting involved with the other, whereas just the fascination aspect remains in a more <br> detached yet humanly caring relationship.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Juno</b><br> Aspects (conjunction) tend toward the parties wanting to cooperate and partner with each other.

Vesta Opposities deal with opposition to and frustration <br> of one's ideals. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Gelukspunt</b><br> Conjuncties act like a mild Jupiter influence. I use only the conjunction for the Gelukspunt, as well as the angles (below).<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Ascendant</b><br> Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Ascendant person's image in the world, how they project themselves in the world, and health. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Nadir</b><br> Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Nadir person's roots, comfort, and sense of security, what happens around their home environment, and may have something to do with end of life circumstances, or life and death circumstances. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon MC</b><br> Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the MC person's reputation, especially professional reputation, standing in the world, career path, professional openings and success, fame. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Descendant</b><br> Conjuncties contribute to or detract from the Descendant person's way of being in relationship, how relationships go for them, not just with that individual but tends to spill over into all other relationships the person has as well. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon Vertex</b><br> Conjuncties are similar to Descendant aspects, sometimes even more important. The Vertex point is a mathematical <br> point that functions as a very sensitive secondary descendant point. Conjuncties to it by another's planets can be very<br> significant in committed relationships of all kinds.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zon in others' houses</b><br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon through Y's houses</b><br> Where Person X's Zon falls into Person Y's Chart is of paramount importance, and cannot be overemphasized,<br> showing something of the ultimate gift, role, and emphasis that X is likely to play in Y's life.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 1st house</b><br> This is good for Y's confidence, bringing him out of his shell, giving him carte blanche to be whatever he wants <br> to be in life, "permission" to express himself freely. Very good for all kinds of relationships.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 2nd house</b><br> The focus is on shared values, money, and possessions. X will generally be an expensive proposition for Y, <br> but what X brings to Y's life may be well worth it - only Y can be the judge of that. <br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 3rd house</b><br> It will generally be what I call "a big talking relationship," lots to talk about, shared ideas, short trips, books, new information,<br> going here and there, cars and other vehicles, phone calls, more mental and sibling-like after any initial passion wears off.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 4th house</b><br> X will tend to come to live with Y, they will manifest housing and real estate together, make a nest together, examine <br> the dynamics of family relationships, and what makes for stability in life. Can be very good for marriage, this will tend <br> to be a stable and reliable relationship long term, or at least Y will prefer it as such. X becomes a "rock" of Gibraltar to Y.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 5th house</b><br> X is a lot of fun for Y and probably vice versa. 5th house is famous for love affairs. If Y wants to have children, especially many<br> children, X is a candidate mate to bring Y one or more children. These two may enjoy hobbies, sports, artistic pursuits, special<br> interests, or vacations together. Emphasis on the 5th house is about creativity, sponteneity, and celebrating the joys of life.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 6th house</b><br> The emphasis for Y is on health, work/job, service to others, and the daily routine. X can make a good employee, support staff,<br> headhunter, health professional or colleague for Y, but 6th house marriages can be focussed on job, health, and the daily grind<br> without much fun. 6th house friendships mayfocus on the healing process, workplace dynamics, and life transitions.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 7th house</b><br> One might expect this would be a great partnership or mate, however the interest may be short lived. The parties bring each <br> other new viewpoints to consider. X is usually the one to withdraw and lose interest, or burn out, even exhibit something of <br> a "scorched earth" policy in leaving a relationship, or just withdraw quietly and steriously so as not to cause a fuss, even though <br> Y would welcome having X around longer.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 8th house</b><br> X brings deep psychological understanding and presence to Y's life. There can be property caretaking, taking care of business <br> and estate issues, awareness of life and death matters, rejuvenation, renewal, and a sense of the deep richness of life. <br> There are sexual overtones to the relationship that may or may not be acted out, are often kept at a level of subliminal awareness.<br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 9th house</b><br> X brings philosophical and religious issues, high mindedness, long distance communications and travel, books and publishing, opportunities to learn and teach and do marketing. There is usually a broad tolerance of each other's viewpoints on a wide variety of subjects. Mid-life and later-life marriages are often 9th house. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 10th house</b><br> the focus is on career openings and advancent for Y. X makes a good mentor, door opener, introducer, boss, teacher, publicist, and champion for Y. X is the more powerful and makes things happen in the world. Y tends to admire X. Because of the power disparity, normally the 10th is not the best house for marriage, which needs more of an equality to be fully successful. 10th house marriages may run aground when Y cos into his own power after being mentored by X for years. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 11th house</b><br> the focus is on friendship and more impersonal connection. Perhaps the two parties t through a common organization they belong to. It's difficult to have much long term very close connection past good friendship with soone whose Zon falls into your 11th house. The two can help each other achieve their goals and dreams in life, and make key introductions. Later-life marriages are often 11th house, but early-life 11th house marriages seldom last as these need closer connection and more intimacy. In retrospect, there can be a feeling of ships passing in the night with 11th house relationships, never quite fully connecting, or only briefly connecting. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | X's Zon falls into Y's 12th house</b><br> the focus is on metaphysics, psychology, spirituality, mysticism, intuitive developnt, the hidden undercurrents of life, causation, therapeutic process, and past lives. Sotis there is also an emphasis on long term health care, and complementary dicine. It's rare to see anyone marry successfully into their 12th house unless there's a soul agreent for long term health care with one of the parties being chronically ill, or the parties mistake a feeling of familiarity that cos with shared past lives for a sign they should be together as mates - which is not necessarily true, is actually rarely true. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Maan in others' house</b><br> X's Maan through Y's houses show an interest and a possibility that either party may entertain regarding the house in question and the relationship. Mostly it shows how Y would like to be supported in life by X, how Y wants X to contribute to or be in his life. However, so interest and a little exploration and action may be all that results, followed by sothing of a withdrawal by X. Maan in the houses is not a big factor long-term in Relatie Astrologie, as a general rule, rather is more of a factor in relation to early interest and shorter term interaction. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Mercurius in others' house</b><br> X's Mercurius through Y's houses bring conversation and learning in the area of X's rcury sign and Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Venus in others' house</b><br> X's Venus through Y'S houses brings pleasure, grace, and ease to Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Mars in others' house</b><br> X's Mars through Y's houses tends to bring a bit of stimulation, commotion and noise, conflict, action, and energy into Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Jupiter in others' house</b><br> X's Jupiter through Y's houses tends to bring blessing, expansion, and prosperity short term and/or long term to Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Saturnus in others' house</b><br> X's Saturnus through Y'S houses tends to bring order, desire for organization and simplification, inhibition, a dampening effect, a minimizing, and an econo to Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Uranus in others' house</b><br> X's Uranus through Y's houses tends to bring an upsetting, surprising, unconventional, exciting, enlightening trend to Y's house in question. There can be sudden changes for good or ill. Sudden changes for ill are hard on Y's nervous system. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Neptunus in others' house</b><br> X's Neptunus through Y's houses tends to bring an effect of subtlety and telepathy to Y's house in question. Fine distinctions are made via a more "right-brained" or gestalt awareness. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Pluto in others' house</b><br> X's Pluto through Y's houses tends to bring a deep empowernt and potential for transformation, birthing a new world directly or indirectly. When Pluto can be nurturing, intuitive, informative, mentoring, and uses power for mutual benefit and win-win, results for Y are very positive. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Noordelijke Maansknoop in others' house</b><br> X's Noordelijke Maansknoop through Y's houses bring challenges, struggles, efforting to Y regarding the house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Zuidelijke Maansknoop in others' house</b><br> X's Zuidelijke Maansknoop through Y'S houses tend to make things easy in that house for Y, though it does help for Y to get rid of the old and outworn, simplify in that area for best long-term results. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Chiron in others' house</b><br> X's Chiron through Y's houses can be an attraction factor with regard to Y's house in question, but also a monkey wrench full of unpleasant surprises and reversals of what you'd expect, in terms of how can things go wrong and not in the desired or usual direction. A lot of potential for healing and help, but also a possible minefield. The houses with Chiron are not usually as upsetting as the Conjuncties. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Juno in others' house</b><br> X's Juno through Y's houses can be a focus where partnership and connection operates well and often, and where Y expects to be supported by X. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Ceres in others' house</b><br> X's Ceres through Y's houses can be an area the Ceres person wants to give unconditional love and nurturing to Y. Simple and comfortable. Do not take Ceres for granted! Validate Ceres, and life is grand. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Pallas in others' house</b><br> X's Pallas through Y's houses can be an area the pallas person wants to apply strategy, planning, intuition and design to Y's house in question. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Vesta in others' house</b><br> X's Vesta through Y's houses can be an area where X gives Y unconditional support and trusts him to do the right thing in that area of Y's chart. <br><br><br> P.S. The composite chart is a different kind of relationship analysis technique. It's the 3rd chart ford by taking the near midpoints of the parties' natal charts. It can be read as a chart of the relationship. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | The Sacred Marriage</b> <br><br><br> Each of these astrological pairs offers us another way to evolve and to reveal our true nature as Love. In each pair, both sides of the equation are equally required. This is a sacred marriage. When we exaggerate one side and deny or condemn the other, we are playing the game of the illusion of reality. In actuality, each side points us back to the middle-back towards Love. Our lives vacillate between these poles in the dance of Creation. The length of time it takes to swing from one extreme to the other determines our degree of wisdom. The faster the swing and the more narrow the angle of swing, the more wise we are. As the swing approaches infinite speed (the speed of light) and zero angle, we experience Love; we have solved the zodiac and gone beyond paradox into a new concentric sphere of understanding and consciousness. A marriage or partnership is the ideal environment for the solving of the zodiac paradoxes-for the revealing of Love. Contrary to popular belief, however, your perfect partner-your soul mate-is not one who is like you in every way. It is one who is perfectly opposite to you in every way! This is because Love is birthed from the synthesis of opposites-of dualities. Until you have worked through each of these zodiac pairs, through many lifetimes, you are not ready for your true soul mate. In the meantime, you are in training with each and every partner you have, learning to love all aspects of yourself equally. Each aspect acts as a beacon pointing towards your true nature as Love and light. Your partners reflect the ways in which you are not Loving yourself and you reflect their issues back to them. The more you can see yourself in your partners and love yourself for what you see, the more your true soul mate will Ďappearí in your current partner. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | The Astro Investigatorsí Marriage Relatie Astrologie Research Project</b><br> <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Astro Investigators Hypothesis</b><br> The "Gators," have undertaken this research in the interest of beginning to unravel the complex astrological chemistry of Relatie Astrologie in birth data between two persons who make a commitment to "officially" marry each other. In this particular study, we have defined "marriage" as a legal pronouncement of marriage occurring between a man and a woman, regardless of how long their marriage may or may not have lasted. Our hypothesis is that there is much more to observe statistically through researching Marriage Relatie Astrologie than what can be described in simple, common statements like, "There must be a Venus-Mars or Zon-Maan-Angle contact or a strong 7th house between two people for a marriage to occur." <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Data and Research Considerations</b><br> <br><br><br> Our birth data comes from various verified sources: data that is readily available to the astrological community, data solicited by us through the questionnaire on our Gatorsí website [www.astroinvestigators.com], and data donated to us. We would like to thank all of the people who have contributed data to this project. <br><br><br> The research program that we are employing for all of our research is "Astro Investigator" by AIR Software. The current design of the software uses a precisely timed Natal chart for the reference or "inner" chart. The Relatie Astrologie or "outer" chart is treated as a "noon chart" in relation to the reference chart. Using the analogy of looking at a bi-wheel chart, we use the reference chart and its house cusps as the central chart, and place the planets of the Relatie Astrologie chart, calculated for noon, around the outside of the reference chart. Thus it is possible to research aspects and other events involving faster moving points like the angles (Ascendant and Midheaven), Vertex, Gelukspunt and Maan in the reference chart without using those points in the Relatie Astrologie chart. We can accomplish an accurate Relatie Astrologie study even if an exact time is known for only one of the two partners by putting the untimed chart around the outside of the chart with a known time. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Using the following Astrological Points in this study of Marriage Relatie Astrologie</b><br> <br><br><br> For the inner, reference charts: Zon, Maan, Mercurius, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus, Neptunus, Pluto, Lunar Mean Noordelijke Maansknoop (hereafter referred to as the Noordelijke Maansknoop), Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, Ascendant, Descendant, Gelukspunt, East Point and the Vertex (21 total) For the outer, Relatie Astrologie charts: Zon, Mercurius, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus, Neptunus, Pluto, Noordelijke Maansknoop, Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta (15 total) Other parameters we have defined for this study are: <br><br><br> Using only the 5 Ptolemaic aspects (conjunction, sextile, square, trine and opposition) Using a 7-degree orb in our aspect studies Using the Placidus House System when incorporating houses Setting the critical limit for chi-square at 2.0 or above to be considered as having a statistically significant influence Setting the critical number of occurrences in our analyze group at 20 or above in order for an aspect to be considered as having a statistically significant influence Using a large number of control groups, generated using a random distributed age algorithm, to compare against each of our two data files being analyzed Ė 15 initially and later 20 for a second run of the study We used two gender-specific data files to create our "analyze group" (the group of files to be tested). One file contains 749 charts of men (Rodden Rating "B" or better) with birth dates ranging from Jan 29, 1874 - July 13, 1978, coupled with their female partnerís charts, calculated for noon, whose birth dates range from Nov. 28, 1873 to May 13, 1987. The other data file contains 829 charts of women (Rodden Rating "B" or better) with birth dates ranging from Mar 20 1831 - July 21, 1983, coupled with their male partnerís charts calculated for noon, whose birth dates range from May 22, 1813 to June 24, 1980. Both data files include instances in which persons may have been married more than once and may therefore be coupled with more than one spouse in the study. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Sharing our Results</b><br> <br><br><br> One of our goals is to share our research results with the community at large in order allow astrologers and other researchers to view our findings to see whether or not they support common astrological axioms with statistical validity. <br><br><br> We are making the following tools available for free on The Gatorsí website so that everyone can easily sort and analyze all of our results for themselves: <br><br><br> an EXCEL spreadsheet (zipped) containing all of our result data a link to download Microsoftís free EXCEL Viewer, in the event that you donít have EXCEL installed on your computer AIR Softwareís AlmaFont to be able to view the astrological glyphs present in the EXCEL sheet, in the event that you donít have an AIR program installed on your computer. a 20-minute NetU2 MediaCam video showing the numerous ways you can filter and sort through the results in our EXCEL spreadsheet to find the statistical information in which you are interested a link to download the NetU2 MediaPlayer, in the event that you donít have this player installed on your computer Introduction to Our Observations <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | The Astro Investigator program</b><br> <br><br><br> Developed by Alphee Lavoie and Sergey Tarasov, allows for a vast variety of chart factors to be analyzed and compared to a number of test groups that the program generates. Comparing to each group is like a "roll of the dice." In assessing what factors occur more often, or more seldom (which is also telling) to an extent which is "greater than chance" for a given population, those rolls represent "chance." The program lets you choose how many times you want to roll the dice. We ran the programís calculations on our file of married people initially with 15 rolls. Some of the Gators had already reported their observations based on those results before the study was run a second time with 20 rolls. We present results from both studies, noting whether the source of the findings was the15-roll or 20-roll set of results. At the conclusion of our reports, youíll see a discussion of the differences between the results of the two studies in the section entitled Duplicating The Study. <br><br><br> What we look for are not merely phenomena that occur with a high frequency, but a high frequency compared to what would be expected in a random population. Thatís what constitutes "statistical significance," or "greater than chance" occurrences. The extent to which a factor is present in a certain test population versus the control group(s) to which it is compared is measured on a scale known in statistics as "chi-square." The higher the chi-square number, the greater is the likelihood that the factor didnít occur coincidentally. <br><br><br> The Astro Investigator program generates random control groups by creating fictitious birth data from the same range of dates and places as the births of the data file of the group of charts being tested, referred to as the analyze group. <br><br><br> The program reports the results as the number of occurrences in the analyze group and then lists the average for the control groups as well as the range of occurrences in the control groups. For instance, the husbandís Juno conjunct the wifeís Juno occurred 61 times in our test group and on average 41 times (with a range of 31 to 52 times) in the 15 control groups. The program also designates whether the test groupís occurrence number is considered "Often", "Seldom" or of "No Influence" and what the chi-square number is. We can have high chi-square numbers for either Often or Seldom occurrences, but No Influence would, by definition, have a very low chi-square number. The program also expresses the degree to which an occurrence (whether Often or Seldom) is greater than chance in terms of a percentage. There is a direct correlation between the chi-square number and the Percentage Above Chance. The percentage is just another way of expressing the same concept, in terms that the average person can understand better. Chi-square is something that statisticians use but not usually the lay public. In the example above, it would say "Often" with a very high chi-square number of 9.8, for a "percent greater than chance" of 99.8. Thus we know itís much more than chance for that Relatie Astrologie aspect to occur in married couples. <br><br><br> The program lists the results but is not at present designed to allow sorting of the results by individual criteria. For that, we export the results into a spreadsheet. <br><br><br> We purposely set aside aspects between slow moving planets such as Neptunus sextile Pluto, which was present in the charts of people born for decades from the early 1940s through the remainder of the 20th Century. Using a 7-degree orb and considering that many people marry partners fairly close in age, the extremely high frequency of this aspect renders it less meaningful as a significant personal factor in Relatie Astrologie. For example, in our second running of the study (with 20 control groups), the wifeís Pluto sextile the husbandís Neptunus scored Often with a whopping 27.7 chi-square, reflective of the high number of people born in that date range. Also due to generational aspects, the husbandís Pluto conjunct the wifeís Neptunus is in the Seldom category with a high chi-square of 8.4. <br><br><br> The vast majority of the aspects from one partnerís chart to the others that we analyzed (2,338 of 3,126 = 75% in our first running of the data) showed NO INFLUENCE. Their occurrences were not significant statistically on either an Often or Seldom basis. But that leaves the other 25% to analyze. <br><br><br> As we went into this study, we hoped to see which of traditional astrologyís expectations for Relatie Astrologie hold up under the scrutiny of statistical analysis. Is there a strong likelihood for couples to have aspects between their Zons and Maans, or between their Mars and Venus placements? Do the Nodes factor in? What about the Ascendant (and thus the Descendant, by implication), or the Vertex? (Thatís the intersection in the west of two Great Circles, the Prime Vertical and the Ecliptic, thought by L. Edward Johndro and Charles Jaynes to indicate relationship circumstances that seem beyond oneís personal control.) <br><br><br> Our observations from our initial round of research are listed below. We plan to continue with follow-on studies. For instance, we did not check placements of one spouseís planets in the other spouseís houses, so that will be in the next round. This first project focused specifically on the Ptolemaic aspects between marriage partnersí natal planets. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | Gatorsí Observations of Ptolemaic Aspects in Marriage Relatie Astrologie</b><br> <br><br><br> Most Aspected Chart Points (based on the 20-roll study) <br><br><br> After Pluto, the ASC was the most "OFTEN" aspected point in the Male Natal Chart File. The trine occurred as the most "OFTEN" aspect in our Male Natal Chart File. The 3 most aspected "SELDOM" points in our Male Natal Chart File, in order, are: Uranus, Noordelijke Maansknoop and Mercurius. The square occurred as the most "SELDOM" aspect in our Male Natal Chart File. The top 4 most "OFTEN" aspected planets in our Female File were: Neptunus, Zon, Jupiter and Saturnus. Sextiel and Trine were the top 2 most "OFTEN" aspects in female natal charts. The infamous "marriage" asteroid, Juno came in as the lowest of the most "SELDOM" aspected points in our Female natal chart file. The Zon came in the highest. The square was the highest of the most "SELDOM" aspects in the female file, followed by the sextile. Zon Ė Overall, there are more aspects to the Zon than to any other planet. 1 There are 15 Often aspects and 13 Seldom aspects. Of these, there are 11 Often occurrences to the wifeís Zon and 9 Seldom occurrences to the wifeís Zon, compared to 4 Often occurrences to the husbandís Zon and only 4 Seldom occurrences to the husbandís Zon. It would appear therefore that the Zon is more significant an indicator for marriage in a womanís chart than in a manís. Neptunus, Mercurius and Juno are involved in the greatest number of aspects to the wifeís Zon. Mars, Uranus and Pallas are involved in the fewest number of aspects to her Zon. <br><br><br> <b>Relatie Astrologie | After the Zon, Juno is the next most aspected heavenly body. </b><br> <br><br><br> After the Zon, Juno is the next most aspected heavenly body. There are 10 Often occurrences and 5 Seldom occurrences. The occurrence frequencies are divided more evenly than the Zonís; Juno is a significant indicator of marriage for both men and women.

Her Vertex opposite his Noordelijke Maansknoop means her Vertex is conjunct his Zuidelijke Maansknoop, a point that weíre taught has to do with past life connections.

Control groups are generated fresh for each running of the study, so the control group average and range numbers change from study to study, impacting the chi-square number and "percentage above chance."
