Venus in Aquarius energy is about friendship and a connection to humanity as a whole. Peace and love and all that. This is unconventional energy, where love seeks freedom. In fact, celebrating diversity in love is a very Venus in Aquarius thing.
During the Venus in Aquarius transit, most of us will seek freedom to express our love however we choose.
It’s quite an experimental vibe, which can make things interesting in the bedroom, but it’s also an emotionally detached energy – which can bring about a somewhat take-it-or-leave-it approach to relationships. Because Venus in Aquarius is a highly independent kind of energy, people don’t take too kindly to being smothered with love. Give people space to be themselves – and that includes you.
There are many different types of love beyond romantic love, and the Venus in Aquarius transit tends to highlight many of these too, often over-and-above romantic or sexual love. The love we have for friends is very apparent, as is our love for the animal kingdom, the planet, and for strangers who may be suffering. There’s an extremely compassionate and humanitarian edge to Venus in Aquarius, and a desire to make life better for all.
Apart from Venus’ connections to love in astrology, this planet is also associated with money and values. When Venus transits Aquarius, we see a love of money, sure, but not money for its own sake; we see the value of money in terms of what we can do with it. We are driven to acquire money to finance travel, education or good causes. It’s more about having a human experience than lining a bank account. For some people, the Venus in Aquarius transit brings an urge to donate financially, but it’s important to remember that giving your time is often just as important as giving money.
Each Sun sign will experience the Venus in Aquarius transit in a slightly different way, but all astrology signs will be interested in social connections, social justice, and freedom to love.
Venus in Aquarius for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
For you, Aries, the social justice aspect of Venus in Aquarius is especially potent. This transit activates your friendship, community and humanitarian astrology zone, so you’ll feel especially drawn toward activism or community work. It’s a great time to volunteer or to act as an informal mentor to someone who is struggling. In love, you’ll want to balance time with your sweetheart with time spent on your own interests – give each other space.
Venus in Aquarius for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
During this transit, Venus blesses you with charm and social skills in your career, Taurus, but she also asks you to consider if what you do for a living is really making the world a better place. If it is, this is an excellent time to seek a promotion, as you’re able to sell your skills very well. If it isn’t, it’s worth spending some time meditating on what your life calling might be. You’re here to make a difference, as are we all – how are you going to do it?
Venus in Aquarius for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
The lure of the Venus in Aquarius transit may stretch your bonds of loyalty to the extreme, Gemini. You want what you want, and that most likely doesn’t involve having to stay in one place in order to please your sweetheart or your family. You’re restless, with an urge to travel and to seek adventure. If you can do so, then you should. If you have responsibilities at home and work which prevent this, taking up an energetic sport might help to soothe your restlessness.
You can be quite possessive and jealous by nature, Cancer, but when Venus transits Aquarius, you get an insight into how that might feel for others. As such, you’re able to back off a little bit – and for this reason, this can be a very healing transit for your love life. Learn to put aside your suspicions in favor of goodwill and trust. Sure, sometimes people will still hurt you, but while Venus transits Aquarius, you’re learning that you’ll survive.
Venus in Aquarius for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
This Venus transit activates your love and relationship zone, Leo, so for you this is an excellent time for dating. A new relationship is possible, if you’re looking for one, and you may be especially drawn towards someone unconventional or “weird.” In an established relationship, keep the magic alive by experimenting in the bedroom. Whatever you both consent to is fine with Venus in Aquarius, so shed your inhibitions and discover a new level to your love.
Venus in Aquarius for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
Day-to-day injustices and prejudices will push your buttons while Venus transits Aquarius, Virgo. This may stress you out, but remember that you don’t have to fix the world single handedly. During this transit, do what you can as an individual to make things fairer, better, kinder or more tolerant. Lead by example. That’s enough. In love, be sure to allow enough time for your relationship to flourish. Less work, more romance.
Venus in Aquarius for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
This Venus transit activates your creative instincts, Libra. You’ll feel more adventurous and more like taking a risk than normal, so if you’re single don’t be surprised to feel a sudden attraction to someone “unsuitable!” It’s a good time for manifesting your ideas into reality, and for making progress with something artistic or imaginative. If you can combine art or craft work with profit for a good cause, so much the better.
Venus in Aquarius for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
Venus in Aquarius brings a need for freedom and independence within your home environment, Scorpio. This may manifest as a teen pushing the boundaries, or an older person proving difficult to care for. Or you may want to demonstrate your own independence by seeking new friendships which are not shared with your lover. All of this is healthy; however, guard against an instinct to rebel for no particular reason. During this transit, you have a tendency to create drama just for the sake of it.
Venus in Aquarius for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
Your powers of persuasion get a huge boost from the Venus in Aquarius transit. You’re able to convey complex ideas with ease, and you can bring others along in support of whatever you’re trying to achieve. This is likely to be a very busy social time for you, Sagittarius, but it’s also a good time to get back in touch with people from school, or a sibling you don’t get to see very often. When it comes to community building, start with the people you already know and re-cement those ties and bonds.
Venus in Aquarius for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
For you, Capricorn, this Venus transit is about money. However, as mentioned, it’s not a materialistic pursuit of money just for the sake of becoming richer. You have a goal in mind, and you’re motivated to achieve it so you can do something for the greater good. If you’re seeking funds for a particular project, the charm of Venus in Aquarius will help. Share your resources to help someone who needs a leg-up in society.
Venus in Aquarius for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)
When Venus transits your own astrology sign, you receive a natural boost in your charm and sociability, and you can use this to your advantage if you’re looking for love. It’s a great time for dating someone new, especially since you’ll be scrupulously honest and sincere with those you meet. Look to expand your social circle too, even if only online. Getting involved with your tribe will help you to feel that you belong – and when you believe you belong, you’ll feel comfortable enough to be yourself.
Venus in Aquarius for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
This Venus transit is about learning to love the skin you’re in, Pisces. You may find that past trauma is re-activated or that painful memories bring some tears. However, you’ve moved on since all that, and this is an achievement which deserves celebrating. Stand tall in your independence and identity, Pisces, with the support of your friends and those who love you. By refusing to be cowed, you are serving as an example and an inspiration to others.
