When Venus moves into Aries on March 21st until April 14th, 2021, she drops the gentle, sensitive attitude of Venus in Pisces and becomes a much more ardent creature altogether. Venus’ transit of Aries is characterized first and foremost by passion. That may be and often is passion in love, but it can also be passion for a job, or a cause, or a hobby – whatever brings satisfaction is pursued with the utmost zeal during this Venus transit.
In astrology, during a Venus in Aries transit, dating is a full-on affair. We tend to make swift and impulsive decisions in love during this transit, and people are more upfront about what they want from a relationship. What you see is what you get when Venus transits Aries, which can be a good thing – at least nobody is hiding anything. However, many people find that dating during the Venus in Aries transit can feel rushed, hectic, or almost forced.
In an established relationship, the Venus in Aries transit is very energizing. Here is an injection of passion and ardor that will benefit any partnership, especially one which may have been struggling or feeling jaded. However, with passion comes anger, and we need to be aware that tempers are also raised during this transit. Boring it isn’t, tumultuous it can be.
Aries energy in astrology is highly ambitious, and given that Venus also rules our financial affairs, this transit can be very motivating when it comes to making money. The go-getting vibe of Venus in Aries is good for business but beware of a certain ruthless streak that can emerge at this time. If you need to create an extra income stream, this transit is perfect, especially if you can earn some extra money by doing something creative, or via a hobby you love.
How Does the Venus in Aries Transit Affect Each Zodiac Sign?
In astrology, each zodiac sign will find that Venus in Aries plays out slightly differently, according to where exactly Venus falls in each individual birth chart. However, during this transit, all signs will find themselves seeking passion above all else.
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Venus in Aries
When Venus transits your own sign, you are at your most charming, especially if you are dating. Be very careful, however, that you don’t come across as too aggressive or forthright. Less is more! Be respectful and try to get to know someone new as a friend first and foremost. In an established relationship, slow down too – you can be too much at times, even though you mean well!
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Venus in Aries
This Venus transit is about finding your passion for spiritual growth, Taurus. You’re driven now to discover what you can do in this sense, so it’s a very good time to learn more about your psychic abilities and gifts. In love, you may want to keep things very private but do be careful with anything illicit. As a rule, Taurus, if you need to keep it secret, you probably shouldn’t be doing it!
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Venus in Aries
For you, Gemini, Venus is at her most sociable during this transit. It activates your friendship and community zone, so you will be even keener to mix and mingle than normal. There’s a hint here too that love could blend with friendship, so if you are single, your next partner may be staring you in the face. Alternatively, you may find love through a community project or by helping out with a good cause.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Venus in Aries
During this transit, Venus transits your career zone, and greatly boosts your charm at work, Cancer. This is great if you need to make a good impression or if your career depends upon your people skills. However, this transit can encourage you to be overly superficial, or to use people simply for what they can offer you professionally. Be on your guard for this and seek only the highest good for all concerned.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Venus in Aries
This Venus transit activates your travel zone in the zodiac, Leo – which offers some intriguing possibilities when it comes to love! If you’re single, you may feel a strong attraction to someone you meet abroad, or at least someone who is from a different country or culture to your own. If you’re studying, beware of a certain lethargy that can accompany this transit; almost as if everything is too easy, so you can’t be bothered. Find your own intellectual challenge and do what you can to stave off boredom.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Venus in Aries
You’re not normally the possessive type, Virgo, but you can expect to feel some jealousy when Venus transits Aries. If you’re in a relationship, this will need honest and skillful handling if you’re not to alienate and upset your partner. If you’re not in a relationship, beware of being too needy with friends and family. This transit hampers your independence somewhat, but you will feel stronger if you do your own thing rather than expecting others to accommodate you.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Venus in Aries
This Venus transit activates your love and relationship zone, Libra, which is obviously very good news if you are looking for love. Be aware however that you may be coming across as too needy, or too keen, especially in a dating situation. Don’t be surprised if you’re drawn towards people who are not normally your type, Libra, especially people who are loud, larger than life or full of themselves – look a little deeper and you’ll understand why this strange attraction has occurred.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Venus in Aries
This Venus transit highlights your everyday work zone, bringing harmony and friendship, especially where colleagues have previously been difficult. You are advised to tackle any workplace issues head-on but with a positive, can-do attitude. Away from work this transit encourages you to exercise and to take up a healthier lifestyle, but don’t go to extremes – pick something you can stick with long-term instead of suddenly deciding to run a marathon!
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Venus in Aries
This Venus transit activates your creative zone, Sagittarius. Pursue any creative hobbies with all the passion you can muster, because something terrific could come of them now. In your love life, you can expect to feel more reckless than normal – it’s time to have some fun, for sure, but be careful not to hurt anyone. Your forthright approach can feel too full-on for some, Sagittarius, and your flirting can distress an existing partner, even if you don’t mean anything by it.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Venus in Aries
Venus in Aries urges you to beautify your home, Capricorn. Creating just the right environment for you and your loved ones would be a very good use of this transit’s energy. However, be aware that this energy can also bring some aggression or hostility into the home. Let people have their say to clear the air – trying to suppress arguments at home now will only lead to lingering resentment. Better to get things out into the open.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Venus in Aries
Venus in Aries brings you a real way with words, Aquarius. Your charm is off the scale and you know just what to say and how to say it, both in business and in your personal life. This is a good time to make new friends or to network in business. You may end up mixing business with pleasure, which could be interesting, but overall, this is a very positive transit for getting things done in a friendly, sociable, co-operative manner.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Venus in Aries
For you, Pisces, this Venus transit is about finances. You normally worry a great deal about money, but during this Venus transit you will feel more confident and more carefree. You are understanding that money is just a means to an end, and that other things you value in your life are just as important. Use this energy to ensure that your career is in line with your true values and your authentic self, because if it isn’t, you are limiting your own abundance.
