In astrology, we look to the planet Venus to find romantic compatibility. Venus represents love and sexual desire — it’s no wonder it’s been the subject of poems and songs from Shakespeare to Lady Gaga. The beautiful and scorching planet shows us our most intimate pleasures and sentiments in matters of the heart—and how we receive and give love.
Venus also expresses social values (ie: dating). Venus sets the rules for how we court others and want to be pursued by others—when we swipe right and left. Venus represents our confidence, which is important in taking that first step to ask someone out.
Sensual Venus flirts through the Zodiac, scintillating each Sun sign for 30 days at a time. The hot blooded planet changes frequently, activating new romantic tastes every month—making it important for us to understand what our personal Venus sign – and those of our crush’s – mean when it comes to connecting with desire.
