While your Sun sign reveals insights into your personality, it’s your Venus sign that tells all about love and relationships. The element of your Venus shows your desires in love -- and your relationship deal breakers. [Don't know your Venus Sign?

Venus in Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You’re honest and prefer it when loved ones are direct and to the point. Venus in a Fire sign wants a relationship that’s going somewhere, making shared ambitions important. You might be spontaneous or open-minded, but you know what you want -- and usually have a plan as to how you’re going to get it. Venus in a Fire sign is passionate, but can end up in a "break up, make up" relationship pattern. Drama is okay, as is tension.
Deal Breaker: Overly emotional types -- clingy turns you off.
Venus in Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
You’re patient and willing to work towards relationship goals over time, so a partner who can focus on the long term is ideal. One of your most endearing qualities is your loyalty, and you want a partner who is as reliable as you are. You have a natural understanding of money and prefer a partner who’s also grounded with finances.
Deal Breaker: Unpredictable, unreliable people who are more spontaneous unsettle your steady heart.
Venus in Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Your curious streak means you want to keep learning, so a partner who’s open to discovery and discussion is a must. You may appear to have a detached view of love, as air operates in the abstract, but the way to your heart is through your mind. You’re attracted to intelligence.
Deal Breaker: Quiet, introverted types who don’t talk.
Venus in Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
When it comes to love, you crave sweet words, romantic dates and will always look after your partner. Your sensitivity means you can pick up on what’s not said, so you’ll always want to work things out. For you, love is free flowing and instinctive, which can mean you struggle with boundaries. One of your big love lessons is to learn that just because you can sense a loved one’s pain doesn’t mean you’re responsible for fixing it.
Deal Breaker: Abrasive or sharp people. Anger dampens your love.
