We all want to be attractive beings, but did you know being attractive is also a way of be-ing? You have the power to attract, & in a very specific way. Like a cosmic come-hither, your Venus sign advertises you to others, in a certain light, and you will be attractive to those who vibrate with your Venus sign. Knowing and owning your Venus sign is like knowing your own personal 'Law of Attraction'; with conscious awareness, receptivity and intention- what you put out there comes back to you!

Venus in Aries. This Venus sign is exciting, adventuresome and advertises itself in that light. What amplifies your attractive power -takes your ability to attract up ten notches? Courage, risk, adventure and that includes the honesty to dive deep into your self and honestly take a look. Pitfalls when not doing the above? Restlessness in love, Venus in Aries' Shadow. For Aries, it's all about the power of choice: choosing healthy partners. They might go through a number of partners, that’s okay. They’re still in charge.
Venus in Taurus. Stable and sweet, humble and easygoing, comfortable in their own skin, Taurus advertises all this- and therefore put others' at ease. Their attractive power is the calm tranquility they exude. When they are comfortable in their skin, they make you feel the same. The shadow of Venus in Taurus? Growing too comfortable, or hedonistic- they love to take it easy. This Venus sign needs to trust their self, to take their gifts and talents, wants and desires seriously, because when they do, they are unstoppable.
Venus in Gemini. These are exciting people to be around. Lively, talkative, vivacious, bright, effervescent youthful - what’s not to love? Their attractive power is being enthralling. Their rrepressible curiosity will get under your skin. Their shadow is living in their head, being caught in duality between head and heart, two choices, being bored. When their natural curiosity is repressed, they whither. They need a partner who is stimulating!
Venus in Cancer. Romantic and heartfelt lovers, these Venus signs are subtle and deep. They are big softies, and share their unconditional love and compassion freely. Which also can attract needy, irresponsible types who need a mama. Never one to turn away anyone in need, their keen intuition alerts them to partners who aren't sensitive or won't pull their weight. It’s lovely to be so tender, but don't forget to be tough - watch out for number one.
Venus in Leo. Wants to be appreciated, and will appreciate you, in kind. Leo wants love to be a gorgeous celebration of sponaneous fun, and mutual appreciation. In their book, everyone must be seen, and celebrated. Their shadow comes out when they’re not getting the appreciation and affection they need- when they demand it from you, or simply look elsewhere. Keep spreading the joy, Leo, knowing that as you give the affection and adoration you want, you receive it back times one hundred.
Venus in Virgo. Gracious and modest, the first to be humble about their gifts, and also the first to be overly sensitive to slights and oversights, their powers of discernment and a no-nonsense approach to love makes them extremely attractive, and realistically grounded. Their shadow is being plagued with self-doubt, shame, criticism and that can undermine any relationship. The remedy for this is to lovingly focus on self-acceptance and to remember to keep it all in perspective -with that sharp mind of theirs, they can.
