Venus in Aries: Love at First Sight

Venus in Aries: Love at First Sight
Are you a lover or a fighter? When the goddess of beauty and love enters the fiery constellation of aggressive Aries February 8 through March 5, our impulse control is likely to fly right out the window. So … date at your own risk!

This may not be one of the most discriminating Venus transits when it comes to dating, mating and relating, but when it comes to fire, passion and even a bit of brimstone, you can count on Aries to bring the spark! When Venus is in Aries, our instincts dominate and there’s a sense of that “now, now, now” urgency taunting our ability to be patient.


This is why Venus has a challenging time being in a sign that is normally ruled by Mars (war). The instinct to fight for the immediate needs of “me, me, me” can obviously be destructive to establishing harmony and reciprocity in relationships.

However, if we can restrain some of our more destructive instincts -- like acting before thinking or letting our need to be right take precedence over our desire for connection and happiness -- we can surpass some of the Venus-in-Aries pitfalls during this very heated period.

Love at first sight is a natural phenomenon when Venus is in the sign of instant gratification. But keep in mind that relationships that start too quickly often end just as fast. If you’re in the mood for an immediate, passion-driven, crash-and-burn love affair, this is your Venus, darling!

There is a great upside to this turbulent Venus period: the opportunity to find your inner warrior and courage in bringing your own needs to the table in your partnerships. Standing up for what you want and need, and reclaiming a sense of self-possession and individuality are important aspects to rebalancing co-dependent patterns in relationships. This is where Venus-in-Aries can give you the fire to burn through stagnant, needy relationship patterns and reclaim your relationship to number one.

When it comes to amour, this month is all about the art of knowing when to love with wild abandon -- and when to fight with respect and love.
