Venus in Aquarius brings the more visible and vocal of the Water-Barer to the party. Your Sign is a Fixed Air Sign, meaning that you are a thinker, and a hard one to sway.
Your symbol, the Water-Bearer is masculine, yet your Ruling Planet, Saturn, is neutral in gender. Uranus is a co-Ruling Planet, which adds to your progressive nature of thinking.
Venus in Aquarius Traits
Venus, the Planet of Love and attachments, allows you to be most aware of how you are treating your heart and the heart of your loved ones.
Your Aquarian nature usually sees humanity as a whole, which can sometimes leave those closest to you feeling a bit unimportant.
Take the time Venus is in Aquarius as your time to celebrate those who are most meaningful to you, and you will find love and fulfillment.
You may feel misunderstood by many, which you try not to take personally. Because of your very broad perspective on life, you tend to treat people without bias or prejudice.
You show love to all you encounter—even making efforts to be civil with your rivals.
You may not appear to be the most polished professional, but when you take a task to hand, you complete it better than anyone else could even attempt to.
Venus in Aquarius Women
Women with Venus in Aquarius are amazingly charismatic and outgoing communicators.
You love speaking with others in your life, speaking on large topics, and posing questions that search for truth and balance in all things.
You are not a wallflower, but rather like to be social and aware of the needs of those around you. You are generous and adept at visualizing long-term goals and love to help others.
You have a huge heart for others, Aquarius, as your Sign is the master of friendships and universal sharing.
You may tend to date friends, or at the very least want to become friends with a person before you can decide if they would make a good partner or not.
This careful consideration can seem cold, calculating, and/or detached at times. This is both a strength and weakness.
You seek universal truth and balance, so although you are a passionate rebel on the world-scale, on the relationship-scale you strive to be fair and partial, as well.
You are stimulated by someone’s mind, as much as their body, and you would benefit from finding a partner who understands your convictions and shares your hopes for the future.
Venus in Aquarius Men
Men with Venus in Aquarius are loyal, once committed. Likewise, if you break this Fixed Air Sign’s heart, he will be done with you for good.
He might seem a bit moodier than other Signs, but he is reliable and does not let personal emotions detract from his efforts towards the greater good.
Because he is Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, he demonstrates a very attractive work ethic, and also a passionate and progressive way of thinking.
This man may not be the most handsome man in the room, but you find him the hottest because of his mind. He can intoxicate you with his words and questions.
You are spellbound by his intellect and intrigue in learning about other people, a higher power, and how the universe works.
Even though you may be tempted to ask for more attention, do not cling to this man. He will be turned off by a partner who does not respect his need for space, alone time, and room to grow as an individual.
This man cannot be tamed or controlled, nor should anyone try to do so. He needs a smart, quick-witted partner, who is willing to take risks, ask tough questions, and enjoy healthy debates, without feeling threatened.
Venus and Aquarius in Love
Your best prospects for love are with a partner who allows you to have a freedom to be social, to want isolation, to put others first, and to question.
To find love and fulfillment, you would benefit from first finding a partner who supports how you search for those things.
Your worst prospects in love are with a partner who is too fixed in their own thinking to help stimulate the growth you desire.
A Taurus may be so stubborn that you are left frustrated. Your Airy and rebellious nature will not benefit from being around a similarly stubborn Virgo, who may be too demanding of perfection for you.
A Cancer will try to nurture you but may stifle your creativity. This person likes to be comfortable, whereas you almost like to be uncomfortable—because you never want to settle for less than your potential.
They might mean well, but this person could hold you back from social interactions and new ideas that are actually essential to your individual happiness.
