Check venus sign

Aries

Someone who will bring out the best in you. Aries have a bark that’s completely worse than their bite. They need someone who is patient and understanding. Someone who can talk them down when they get riled up or emotional about something. While they come across as blunt and overly confident it’s an act. They need to wait for someone who can see that. Someone who will take the time to see through them and bring out the best in them. They don’t show their vulnerable side often, their partner has gotta be someone who has realistic expectations of them and doesn’t try and change them. When they storm off and want to handle things on their own, they need someone who will walk with them even if it’s in silence.

Taurus

Someone who is soft. They are the toughest signs to be in a relationship with. They lose their temper very easily. The perfect partner is someone who takes everything they say with a grain of salt. They come across as tough but they hate confrontation. They come across as mean and cold-hearted but they just struggle in showing emotions. Loyalty and honesty mean everything. They are human lie detectors and if they catch you they won’t tell you they will just cut you off without an explanation. They need someone who is calm when they lose it. Someone who is happy even when they are mad. Someone who can listen when their walls break down. Someone who can be their strength. They don’t like relying on people and they think they have to do everything themselves but there is comfort in the calm nice partner who understands them without words.

Gemini

Someone who gives you freedom. Geminis are strictly business and goal oriented. They need someone who will keep them on a long leash and doesn’t suffocate them. Geminis are always fired up it’s important their partner knows to add fuel to that. They need support and encouragement and someone always in their corner taking risks with them. They tend to put on a brave face when dealing with difficult situations, it’s important their partner earns their trust because when a Gemini breaks down, it will only be in private and they need someone who is okay with that.

Cancer

Someone who will heal you. Cancers have the purest heart. They are someone who cares a lot about what people think. Their perfect partner will be someone who realizes how special and rare they are. Having a heart like they do, leads to a lot of heartbreak. They need someone who will help them to heal and accept the past, forgiving both others and themselves. While they try and be social they struggle, their perfect partner will be someone who takes their hand confidently and leads the way in a party. While sometimes they come across as clingy and overprotective, their perfect partner won’t be fazed by it.

Leo

Someone who will adore you. Leos thrive in the spotlight and do their best when they are loved and appreciated. They don’t do well with negative reinforcement and they take things very personally. Their perfect partner is someone who understands how sensitive they actually are and knows exactly how to word things so it doesn’t hurt them. They try really hard when it comes to just about everything so they need someone who can match that effort.

Virgo

Someone who will celebrate your success. Virgos tend to be perfectionists. They need someone who is just as ambitious but can also be their rock when they don’t succeed. The thing about perfectionists is they tend to bite off more than they can chew and just exhaust themselves trying to achieve these things. While success comes from it so does failure. They take it hard when they aren’t the best at something so they need someone who can emotionally support them when they are down. They don’t forgive themselves for mistakes so their perfect partner would be someone who can do just that. Being the way they are, they don’t think much of their success but rather focusing on the next thing. A humble trait is something to admire but they someone who will celebrate with them.

Libra

Someone who won’t take you for granted. Libras are the sign of peace and harmony. They pick very few fights and hate causing problems. They will put others first before themselves always. Their perfect partner is someone a little tougher than them who will push them to be a little more aggressive. Sometimes they let people walk all over them and take advantage of them, they need someone who won’t take shit from anyone and sometimes fight their battles. Libras wear their heart on their sleeve and are hopeless romantics, their perfect partner is someone who gives as much as they do and never makes them feel like they are trying too hard.

Scorpio

Someone who can both dish it and take it. Scorpios are always the dominant ones taking control in a relationship. They need a partner who is a little more passive and okay with that. They have two very different sides. Social and outgoing in public but then dark and emotional behind closed doors. They need someone who understands that and can nurture both personalities. A Scorpio is very blunt. They don’t tell you what you want to hear, they tell you what you need to hear. They need a partner who has both thick skin but can dish it also when they are wrong. They aren’t afraid of being called out, in fact, their perfect partner is both soft and but tough when they need to be.

Sagittarius

Someone who is patient. Sags have serious trust issues. They need someone who will let them come around at their own time and pace. Someone who isn’t going to pressure them in any way. They are very critical of themselves, they need to wait for the guy who will counter every self-doubt they have even if they tired of repeating it. They don’t talk about their problems, they need someone who will take the time to learn them and understand and know when something is wrong and let them know they can talk about it. Sags tend to thrive alone, so they need someone who will be persistent in pursuing them and not give up. Because if you don’t give up on a Sagittarius, you will have their loyalty for life.

Capricorn

Someone who will build you up. Capricorns tend to be a little more on the shy and insecure side. While they come across as cold and guarded they it’s just they are, wary of who they can trust. Even if they care deeply about you they will reserve saying it out of fear of getting hurt. Their perfect partner will add confidence to their life. They will show them they don’t have to face things alone. And in moments they want to run away out of fear, they have someone they can run to, confide in and trust. It’s hard to win over the love of a Capricorn and get them to even say those three words but once you have their heart, a piece of it is yours forever.

Aquarius

Someone who is as weird as you are. They always beat to their own drum. They were never the most popular in school nor did they want to be. They were that person who was always nice to everyone regardless of any difference the person might have had. They see the world through a different set of lenses than everyone else. Where others may see someone who is trouble, they look and see someone who has been hurt in the past. While others see someone who is strange they see interesting. Their perfect partner is someone not others will understand. But the thing about an Aquarius is they don’t allow other people’s opinions to ever influence their own. So their perfect partner will be someone who also beats to their own drum and doesn’t care what people think of them.

Pisces

Someone who will listen to the things you don’t say. Pisces are quiet by nature. It’s important their partner realizes when they are quiet, they are thinking deeply about something. They overthink everything. It’s important their partner knows to let them talk everything out and process what is going on in their head. They wear their heart on their sleeve and feel everything so deeply. It’s important they have a partner who doesn’t take advantage of their soft nature but sees value in it. You can learn more about a Pisces just watching them than you ever could listening. It’s important their partner has the patience to want to do that.

Truths

Aries: You keep looking for someone who will bring excitement + passion to your life but you need to be looking for someone who brings stability instead.

Taurus: You continue to believe that people will change when they keep proving that it’s not going to happen over and over again.

Gemini: You send out mixed signals because you aren’t entirely sure about what you want but when you finally decide it’s too late.

Cancer: You keep running back to your exes instead of allowing yourself to move on. You want to believe you can start that fire again when you can’t.

Leo: You’d spent so much of the last few years trying to cater to those who didn’t seem like they cared in return.

Virgo: You keep lying about being okay because you don’t want to seem helpless.

Libra: You keep ending up in the same situations over and over again because you don’t know when to say enough is enough.

Scorpio: You keep telling yourself that you’re better off alone because people don’t understand you.

Sagittarius: You care but you have a funny way of showing it and you can often be your own worst enemy.

Capricorn: You expect the past to repeat itself. No matter how good things may seems you always think that there’s a storm right around the corner.

Aquarius: Some days it seems like nothing is going right no matter how hard you try.

Pisces: When people show you who they are, believe them. It’s easier to cut ties sometimes rather than putting yourself in a situation that’s only going to lead to heartaches.

mercury retrograde is finally over but there are still several planets in rx! mars retrograde has an especially profound impact right now. the placement of this powerhouse planet has many of us feeling tired, groggy, drained, and ‘out of it’. time seems as if it’s working against us rather than for us. now is a good time to set boundaries between work and personal life. don’t overexhaust yourself. take it easy, slow down, and breathe. don’t beat yourself up for feeling a lil lazy right now!

A Quirk That Makes the Signs Odder Than They Already Are (in my experience)

Aries: Always seems confused about whatever they’re talking about, even if they know a vast amount of information on whatever they’re talking about.


Taurus:  Seems to find small places to fit themselves into(kind of like a cat, I know)and then proceeds to comfortably do whatever they were doing just in a different part of the house. Usually these are places that are dim and alone.


Gemini: Got sort of traumatized by a novel they once read in class for a grade, and to this day will always be aware of the moon when it is a full moon. Then they will proceed to tell anyone who has ears and is in the general vicinity.


Virgo: While speaking they seem to get lost on the topic they’re speaking about, and then finishes talking about it. But not before starting another topic, and then finishing. (honestly though, this is actually adorable)


Leo: Makes weird expressions to themselves without them knowing, that can range from looking disgusted at something normal, and then smiling oddly at nothing at particular.


Libra: Sometimes likes to sit in a completely darkened room, doing absolutely nothing.


Cancer: Might get lost in their own thoughts to the point where they’re staring at nothing and have a glazed over stare. Creepy, and for the most part something you take time to get accustomed to.


Sagittarius: Falls asleep in almost all areas, almost being the clue word because some places take effort that they would rather not exert. But has been found sleeping in some odd places.


Capricorn: They don’t do internal thoughts, so you might wander in on them talking to themselves and actually responding to questions they ask themselves. Sometimes they might have arguments with themselves too, not noticing if another person walks in on them.


Scorpio: Makes a habit of referencing memes, movies, and TV shows. The if you do not notice it will point it out to you and then call you out for being uncultured. (Note: Will be extremely pleased if you do get the reference)


Aquarius: Can sometimes be found talking to inanimate objects, and if someone asks them about it, they say that they “don’t know what you’re talking about” even though you clearly saw them doing it.


Pisces: Sometimes will lay on the ground in the center of an empty room, with nothing but earbuds and a phone playing music. They won’t use their phone, they’ll just lay there quietly, and staring at the ceiling. (It’s peaceful)

Mars in the Signs💓 💗 💖

Mars in Aries

If you have Mars in Aries, you are aggressive, pioneering, adventurous, and always on the outlook to start new projects. You hate restraint and don’t like to be told to do something or how to do it. You want to lead, not follow. At times you can be headstrong, impulsive, and impatient. Waiting is not something that appeals to you. You go after what you want with great zeal and you do not take “no” for an answer. You love competition and anything that allows you to test or prove yourself. Cooperation is not your strong suit and you can be very self-willed, self-absorbed, and selfish at times. The “me-first” attitude is strong in you. You are self-reliant and hate depending or relying on others. You need to be our own person and do things your way, even if it might not be the best way. Your best talent is in getting things off the ground quickly. If initial success does not come quickly, you may get tired of that project and move to the next. Sustaining is not your strong side.

Mars in Taurus

If you have Mars in Taurus, once you set your mind on a goal, your dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. You never give up and find it difficult to change your mind or course in mid-stream. Whatever you have set your sights on, you refuse to give up or let go of it. You are loyal to a fault, unless someone betrays your trust, then all heck can break loose. You are patient and usually slow to anger unless someone takes you too far. That is when you charge, just like the bull Taurus stands for. You are reliable and consistent and can handle more of the workload than most around you. You prefer a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. You enjoy building and seeing the results of your hard work. Things you can put your hands on appeal to you. You need to see practical results, not theory and you are not satisfied with intangibles like just having a good time. At the same time, you have a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for you to overcome before you get going.

Mars in Gemini

If you have Mars in Gemini, mentally and physically you are the busy, little bee. You are constantly in motion with many and various activities, usually several at a time. You are happiest when busy and you hate boredom. Your mind is alert, active, and constantly seeking to learn more. You absorb knowledge like a sponge and you will debate and argue with anyone who wants a mental sparring match. A great deal of nervous tension or anxiety can exist with this position and it is important that you get regular exercise to relieve the stress. You talk with your hands and may be ambidextrous or have mechanical ability. There is a need to think before acting and to have patience so that you keep yourself out of trouble. Sometimes you just do things for the sake of doing something and this is not always a good idea. Look before you leap.

Mars in Cancer

If you have Mars in Cancer, you avoid direct confrontations with others, preferring to side-step issues or attack them indirectly. Aggressive, competitive behavior makes you uncomfortable. Your ego drive is not very strong and you are not especially ambitious or eager to push your way to the top. Inner satisfaction is more important to you. You may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. But, when you feel your loved ones or your family or anyone you really care about is being threatened, then you will fight and defend with all the tenacity in the world. That brings out the very strong protective side in you. Impulse and instinct take over and you will battle until the end, if needed. Your goals and actions tend to center around your family and loved ones and they are very personal. Great sacrifices can be made for them, even though they may be in the wrong.

Mars in Leo

If you have Mars in Leo, you are proud and probably have a big ego. You want to excel, to stand out and be recognized for who and what you are. You like to be Number One. It is difficult for you to take orders or to stay in the background. You like to be noticed and will do things in a dramatic manner just to get attention and be seen. You hate being wrong and may insist that you are always right. You are forceful, strong, energetic, artistically creative, determined, and highly competitive. You play hard, you play to win, and you do not give up easily. In fact, you see life as a competitive sport, game or performance. You love admiration and applause, and you have a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. You tend to be very self-confident, even arrogant.

Mars in Virgo

If you have Mars in Virgo, you are an energetic worker, a perfectionist, and you have high standards for your own work. You often feel that if you want something done right, then you must do it yourself, for others never do as thorough a job as you do. Doing a task well is very important to you, and you may labor over minute details that others wouldn’t other
with. You constantly work for accuracy, efficiency, and precision, and you become very irritable when things are not done “right”. On the other hand, you can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that you will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that your efforts simply won’t be good enough. You are usually very realistic in assessing what you can accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself.

Mars in Libra

If you have Mars in Libra, you swing from being too pushy, aggressive, confrontational, and insistent on doing things your own way to being too eager to please and too compromising. You have a strong attraction to the opposite gender and if Mars is well aspected, then this brings popularity and good will. But if Mars is badly aspected, then this can bring opposition and criticism from the public and the opposite gender, fickleness in love relationships, and trouble from toying with the affections of others. Desire for competition and cooperation swing back and forth. You seek a balance between acting independently and assertively and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. You may feel frustrated at times that you cannot simply do what you want to, that you must always accommodate the needs and desires of others.

Mars in Scorpio

If you have Mars in Scorpio, you are extremely strong-willed and you pursue your goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. You are capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and you are very difficult to influence once your mind is made up. When you want something, you can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. You tend to be secretive and you do not want others to know what your plans are. You tend to be instinctive, perceptive, determined, strong-willed, stubborn and magnetic. You have deep emotions and may occasionally show a primitive side. You need to learn self-discipline or your desire nature will rule your life, probably causing great sorrow in the end. You must learn to control your jealousy and possessiveness in matters of love.

Mars in Sagittarius

If you have Mars in Sagittarius, you are aspiring, enterprising, idealistic, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potentials that will expand your horizons. You are a rolling stone. You aim high and are not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. You like to stretch your limits, to see how far you can go, and to take risks. You are a positive thinker, expect success for yourself, and are philosophical about failures. You are flexible and bounce back from disappointment rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea you want to try. Your enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable you to enlist the aid and support you need for your projects. However, you sometimes promise more than you can actually deliver, due to over-optimism or insufficient attention to the practicalities involved. You also tend to get distracted and sometimes have too many things going at once. Although it may be very difficult for you, there are times when you must simply develop and show commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make your dreams and goals a concrete reality.

Mars in Capricorn

If you have Mars in Capricorn, your actions serve your ambitions for power, recognition, distinction, and status. You are not content to follow, but must have a leading role in whatever you do. If not handled well, the energies of this placement can make you appear ruthless, manipulative and bull-dozing over anyone who stands in your way. You are efficient, tenacious, organized, dedicated, practical, disciplined and steadfast in your resolve to feel successful. Your drive and energy are directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. You are hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to achieve your long-range goals. You can easily become a workaholic and are very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job. You don’t tend to gamble when it comes to implementing your plans but generally prefer the conservative, tried-and-true route and then following through with it. You rely on your own efforts and perseverance rather than luck or good fortune. There is a natural shrewdness and instinct for business or organizational management.

Mars in Aquarius

If you have Mars in Aquarius, your energies are expressed in unique and original ways. There may be genius shown in the way you go about things. You are inventive, scientific, a bit eccentric, unconventional and perhaps a bit rebellious. Working with others to get things done appeals to you. You enjoy taking part in sociable, group activities and unite with others of similar ideals and persuasions. You are progressive, democratic and you are not concerned with hogging personal power or having authority over others. You are a team player. New and unusual methods of work, planning and technology appeal to you. Your energy levels are usually high, but they can be erratic at times and you may find a tendency to work in spurts. Thus, you can be impatient and inconstant in pursuing your desires. You are intellectual, cautious, independent, freedom-loving and enterprising. You respond well to emergencies.

Mars in Pisces

If you have Mars in Pisces, your energies and aggressions tend to come out in non-combative and noncompetitive ways. You are a bit of a pacifist and do not enjoy tackling anyone or anything head-on in a directly confrontational manner. Working around people or situations or working behind the scenes, in secret, is more your preferred style. If necessary, it is more your tendency to give up something rather than to fight for it. Because your ego is not especially interested in personal achievement, glorification, material advantage, or winning at the expense of someone else, you may come across to others as weak-willed or ineffectual. Being on top, being the best, or being first doesn’t mean much to you, hence you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in. You may experience difficulties in planning clear and definite goals for yourself in the real world. You are not sure what you want out of life, except you instinctively seem to know that you do have and need to find a spiritual purpose.
