In honour of Valentine’s day, this issue of the Wolfington Post Horoscopes will be about Venus signs! In astrology, Venus is the planet that controls romance and relationships. It’s not the same as your sun sign (the sign based on the month you’re born) and if you don’t already know what your Venus is, you can find out through this link: https://cafeastrology.com/whats-my-venus-sign.html
Aries is a fiery and passionate sign. A Venus placement in Aries can make you competitive and spontaneous in your romantic endeavours. Flirting, chasing, and puppy love can even be more meaningful to an Aries Venus than a relationship itself, but don’t let that discourage you from trying to find your one and only. Use your distinctively offhand nature to fuel the fires of romance and keep your partner on their toes!

Lovely Taurus’ ruling planet is in fact Venus, so Taurus Venus is a charming placement. Taurus Venus is extremely indulgent and appreciates the finer things in life, like decadent chocolates and expensive smelling perfumes. This sign is much more of an attractor than a chaser, you are extremely romantic even though you may put most of the responsibility of a relationship on your partner. Relationships should be equal but you are an extraordinary advocate for your wants and needs and shouldn’t be afraid to let them be known.

Do you need lots of reassurance? You might be a Gemini Venus. Gemini Venus loves to know what’s happening, and they communicate in a relationship like no other! You may get bored quickly with people and fall for someone else with the snap of your fingers; friendships and relationships can have blurred lines for you because of this, but don’t feel discouraged because people will fall for your wit and conversation just as quickly.

The ever emotional Cancer may not be what it seems in terms of the Venus sign. Cancer Venus is much more reserved than the others, and not in a bad way. The Cancer Venus placement values trust and loyalty over everything else in a relationship. It takes a while for you to open up to a new person because you only want good experiences in love. Reassurance and safety are what you search for in all of your decisions, use it to your advantage.

Captivating and powerful as ever, Leo Venus placements make for relationships that keep on giving. The bold and beautiful Lion is the king of the jungle and also the king of the heart. Ultra romantic gestures and showing off is your default when it comes to looking for a beau and you do it best. Leo Venus cares as much about the personal aspects of the relationship as they do the public, wanting relationships to be perfect inside and out (and maybe to fuel your ego just a bit)

In classic Virgo fashion, Virgo Venus loves a relationship with control. Being able to move past arguments and have fun without holding a grudge, and leaving room for you to have some time alone is important for you. Your actions in love are careful and calculated; you love to let the person you are infatuated with know that you’re thinking about them, whether it’s a text to check in on them, bringing them their favourite coffee shop order, or extravagant dates.

Another sign that finds its home on Venus, Libra Venus is an enchanting placement. Unlike Taurus Venus who needs to be impressed in a relationship, Libra loves balance (your symbol is a scale for a reason!) You may find yourself attracted to people who are similar to you because you value the aesthetic much more than others, if your relationship doesn’t look good you don’t look good and Libra loves to look good.
Love song for Libra: You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker
Sensual and mysterious is the Scorpio Venus placement. Secret meetings, quiet gestures, and intimacy are the ways you show your love; You don’t want your romances to be everyone else’s business because it’s important for you to have your separate worlds. Bonding with your partner is the most crucial part for a Scorpio Venus because even though you want everyone else to find your relationship secretive, you want to know your own relationship well.
Love song for Scorpio: Sea Of Love – The Honeydrippers
A spontaneous Venus sign like Sagittarius is lots of fun! Sag Venus wants experiences, you want to find someone who will travel the world with you and keep surprising you at every corner. Personality is what matters most to you when looking for a partner. Someone’s sense of humour could make or break a match for you, because you never want to be bored.
Love song for Sagittarius: Love On The Brain – Rihanna
Capricorn’s commanding and determined attitude mellows out the effects of Venus, so it takes a lot to impress a Capricorn Venus. You like each person in a relationship to have a defined role that they don’t stray from, and you often like to be in control when it comes to romance. But once you’re into someone, you’re really into them, and will start to let your predominant guard down.
Love song for Capricorn: Be My Baby – The Ronettes
Aquarius Venus is an individualist, they love non-traditional relationships and get easily bored when things are in a stable place. You hate for things to be mundane and predictable and can even self-sabotage while looking for that spark you’re missing. You show love through eccentric actions, and others are captivated with your spirit in relationships.
Love song for Aquarius: Funnel of Love – Wanda Jackson
You, Pisces Venus, are very special. Despite the fact that your ruling planet isn’t Venus, Venus and Pisces have a unique connection. Venus is exalted in Pisces which means that Venus is running at its highest capacity when under Pisces. There’s a powerful and significant gift that you possess as a Pisces Venus. You can find love in even the most unconventional of places and you see beauty in ordinary things that others may not notice. People are drawn to your captivating allure and you can make the most out of a not-so-great seeming relationship. You show your love through your every action and have lots of empathy to go around.
