Your astrological birth chart can tell you who, how, and when you’re supposed to love. And if you want to find your best love, you’ve gotta get to know your Venus signature. Here, consulting astrologer KJ Atlas explains why your Venus sign is one of the most critical pieces of compatibility to create a long-term healthy relationship.
Astrology is so much more than your sun sign!
While most people know their “sign” (aka their sun sign), there are actually nine planets in your unique birth chart. A birth chart is not duplicated for 25,000 years, which makes you super unique. That’s why you might be different from people who have the same zodiac sun sign as you.
You’re ready for real love. And your definition of real love looks different than the next gal. Your astrological birth chart confirms this. There are nine different planets in every birth chart that have a say in your personality makeup.
Venus is the planet of love, values, and reception—traditional feminine energy. This is one of the most critical pieces of compatibility to create a long-term healthy relationship with yourself and others.
By getting to know your Venus sign and placement, you can discover who your ideal lover really is and how to maintain authentic, thriving relationships that align with your true self.
If you want to find your Venus in your birth chart, first calculate your birth chart with an online calculator. You’ll need to enter the date, time, and location of your birth. Once your chart is created, look for the traditional “female symbol” of a circle with a cross below. Keep it simple, and start by noticing the zodiac sign where Venus sits in your chart.

Every Venus sign has different likes and dislikes.
Aries Venus needs excitement and spice in their love life, not to be confused with chaos. Lots of adventure, physical activity, and hot sex are all requirements for the Aries Venus native to thrive in love.
Taurus Venus wants to create safety and security with their partner and enjoy simple earthly pleasures. Good food, spa days, and commitment are all things that win over a Taurus Venus. They need reliability, and there’s no shame in demanding that.
Gemini Venus thrives on novelty. Not to say that they need variety when it comes to partners, which is a common misconception. They need mental stimulation and excitement, so their ideal partner is going to be down to try new things and experiment with all things in life.
Cancer Venus wants to feel loved and taken care of and might require more expressive affirmations from their partner to know they’re really in it. They want to feel at home with their partner, so pick someone who values a little bit of tradition and creature comforts too.
Leo Venus has queen energy, and they need to be with someone who has no problem letting them be the star they are. If they’re in the right relationship, they should feel safe expressing themselves and feel fully seen. Leo Venus also loves luxury.
Virgo Venus has high standards, but if their checklist is too strict, they might miss a wonderful person in their peripheral when they’re hyper-focused on an ideal. They need to find someone who shares their high standards and good taste and be open to dating outside their “type.”
Libra Venus wants true romance. They know what looks and feels good and what they want. But once they find it, make a commitment instead of romanticizing the options. Libra Venus needs a relationship with flirty banter, weekly dates, and a bit of spoiling.
Scorpio Venus loves deeply and thrives off an equally strong emotional and physical chemistry. With a strong sex drive, physical intimacy is important, but only if there’s a solid emotional foundation that makes them feel safe to let down their walls.
Sagittarius Venus is daring and wise. They need someone who can keep up with their fast pace and openness to spontaneity. Deep talks at the top of a mountain or city roofscape is peak romance for Sagittarius Venus. Everything is hotter from a higher perspective for Sag Venus.
Capricorn Venus knows how to take their time. If you want to woo a Cap Venus, be prepared to take it slow and invest. They’re not too casual and are often humble, sometimes to a fault. Compliment a Cap Venus on less superficial things and share your long-term goals with them to grab their attention.
Aquarius Venus is experimental and independent. Giving an Aquarius Venus some space is a natural way to lure them in. They want to feel like they have a sense of individuality and love interesting and stimulating talks. They might also like more unconventional dynamics in love.
Pisces Venus is a lover. But they might get burned if they have the “rose-colored glasses” on so much that they give someone the benefit of the doubt when it’s undeserved. You need a partner who isn’t shy about affection and romance—the sappier the better.
