Venus is the planet of love, beauty and harmony. It governs our relationships (particularly our love life) and embodies harmony and cooperation in all its forms. Every year, Venus spends some time in each sign of the zodiac only once, spreading its message of beauty and love to all. As it moves into each new sign, that sign affects how Venus does its work in the world, which in turn affects us here on earth. By understanding what it means when Venus is in a particular sign, we can figure out how to harness its power and strengthen our friendships, romantic relationships and professional connections. Here’s what Venus in Aries means for all of us.
Venus in Aries in 2020: February 7 to March 4
Signs that benefit when Venus is in Aries: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Signs that may face challenges when Venus is in Aries: Everybody else
The overview: Let’s cut to the chase: Venus and Aries don’t necessarily mesh well, as this partnership-focused planet struggles to govern the fiercely independent fire sign. That said, when these two finally figure each other out, they can transform you into the badass warrior goddess queen you’ve always wanted to be, crushing your goals with confidence and charm. Basically, Venus in Aries can turn you into Lizzo. And who doesn’t want to be Lizzo?
Love: Aries’ influence on the love planet makes all of us more forward in our love life, giving us the confidence we need to ask for what we want (and get it). This is a time of heightened sexual tension and flirtation, as Aries tends to love the chase about as much as they love the end result. Partnered Aries will find themselves wanting to shake up their relationship, breaking out of ruts and taking charge by planning fun dates or making moves in the bedroom. This is an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone romantically and revolutionize the way you relate to romance.
Career and finances: While they can cause some shake-ups in your personal life, Venus and Aries come together as a pretty great pair when it comes to your professional life, giving you the courage you need to pursue your dreams. The confident energies of both Venus and Aries create the extra strength you need to crush it in the boardroom, no matter what crazy shenanigans they may be causing in the bedroom.
Mood: Don’t be surprised if you find yourself more self-centered during this time, as the highly individualistic Aries works its influence over your relationships. That doesn’t mean it’ll make you selfish, it just means that relationships that don’t fuel you to be better will absolutely fall to the wayside. This is a confident, goal-oriented time about loving yourself and seeing who is brave enough to come along for the ride.
