Love sign compatibility: Comparing Venus signs in Astrology

Zodiac Sign Compatibility: GEMINI

Note: You are likely familiar with comparing sun signs to determine compatibility. It can be much more revealing to compare Venus signs in romantic relationships! Find out your position of Venus by sign here.

Keep in mind that you can use these compatibility interpretations for Sun Signs as well!


If your Venus is in Gemini:


When your Venus is in Gemini, you look for lively relationships with plenty of activity and communication. When you are in love, you make light and witty company, even if your Sun is in a more serious sign like Taurus or Cancer. You look for a partner who can hold a real conversation. Scratch that—you want somebody who can talk about multiple subjects in a short period of time. When you're in love, you can be a real tease! You flirt, joke, and cajole—and you turn others on with the promise that love will be fun with you.   

I'd like to take this opportunity to address the reputation Gemini has for being somewhat dishonest. Evasive, yes, but dishonest is off the mark. Venusian Geminis are not in touch with their feelings enough to give a concrete answer when they are cornered. Or perhaps you can say that they are so mentally stimulated that they are more aware than most of all of the possible answers or reasons. So, if you are asked by your partner, "Why have you been avoiding me?", for example, your answer may seem to have been pulled out of a hat. The truth is, you don't always know the answer right away, but you are so communicative that a response comes out of you anyhow. Neither are you the type to excuse yourself to soul-search, then get back to your lover with a meaningful answer. You're always quick to reply. This quality is often misinterpreted as insincerity.

You are not the most sentimental of lovers, although you do have a wonderful way with words. You value exchanging and sharing ideas in a partnership, and a good conversation makes powerful foreplay for you! Your urge for freedom and variety in love, coupled with a tendency to skirt intense topics, can lead some partners to think that you're as substantial as cotton candy. Although some Venus in Gemini people go through lovers like Kleenex, just to avoid the frightening thought of having to commit oneself to only one partner, most are very capable of loyalty in the long-term. They simply want their relationships to be interesting. Commitment, to you, doesn't mean things have to be dull.

(See Venus in Gemini for more details on the Venus in Gemini temperament). 

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aries:  Love for both of you is equated with fun. You and your partner want to be active in your relationship, and neither of you is happy if your partnership enters a boring zone. You should be pleased with the amount of independence granted to you from each other. Together, your enthusiasm is infectious. You are more intellectual than your partner, finding good conversations stimulating. In fact, you are in the most loving of moods when you engage in a satisfying verbal exchange with your lover. Your partner does enjoy having fun, but lengthy conversations are not always the ticket—in fact, if the talk drags on too long, your lover finds it mind-numbing. The key here will be to stay active with each other, being careful not to ride too high on the enthusiastic energy you two generate when together, at the expense of enjoying each other in quiet ways once in a while. Your partner can easily become impatient with your indecisiveness. As well, your partner finds it disconcerting when your conversations stray from the most favorite topic—him/her! Probably the biggest problem in your partnership is a sense of instability. You react to each other very impulsively, and neither of you is given to setting goals for your partnership. Living in the moment certainly infuses a sense of playfulness and fun into your relationship that is enviable, but your relationship may not always feel dependable. In fact, your powerful attraction to each other often runs hot and cold. Harnessing the energy and passion of your combined energies will not be easy, but if you can slow down once in a while and enjoy each other, this relationship can be both invigorating and rich.

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: Your Venus signs are side-by-side, meaning you both approach love relationships very differently. This combination can generate much intrigue and fascination. In fact, side-by-side signs tend to turn up more frequently in love relationships than those that are traditionally considered compatible. Perhaps it's because we tend to be attracted to challenges. If your differences are not accepted and appreciated by each other, however, over time they can cause many disagreements! Your partner is a steady person in love. He/she is very sensual but quite practical as well, taking commitment quite seriously. You tend to live in the moment when it comes to love, and are an expert at infusing relationships with playfulness and a lively spirit. Although you find each other intriguing, the problems start when you recognize that your values are at odds. You value verbal exchanges, while your partner values stability and security. You show your love by playfulness, teasing, and interest. Your partner, on the other hand, is less concerned about variety and fun than he/she is with having a partnership that can be depended upon. A touch means more than words to your partner. Your constancy and physical presence does as well. You might complain that your partner takes what you say seriously, and wants to hold you to it. Your moods and wants change at a moment's notice, and you don't like being pinned down. When your partner is in need of regeneration, he/she tends to turn to physical and natural pleasures, often in solitude. When you are distressed or out of whack, you want to be able to talk it through with your partner. You enjoy new experiences and environments, while your partner is not as quick to embrace change. This is a partnership that has much potential if both of you are willing to learn from each other, mainly because each of you expresses qualities that the other lacks. If either or both of you are stuck in your ways or self-righteous, this will be a rocky partnership! However, when you are down or unsure, you can find great strength in your rock-solid partner; and your partner can certainly enjoy your wit and social ease—you are wonderful company.

How You Relate to a Partner who also has Venus in Gemini: Because both of you have similar needs in relationships, your pairing highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the Venusian Gemini position! You will be pleased with your partner's willingness to talk, have fun, and ability to liven up a rainy day. Together you can enjoy some wonderful cerebral moments as well as lighter entertainment. Your relationship is less likely than most to get clouded over with possessiveness or jealousies, although it can certainly run hot and cold at times! Both of you get turned on quickly—and turned off just as rapidly. If you're not on the same cycle, which is bound to happen from time to time, there can be quite a few stormy moments! For this reason, this pairing is probably more suitable for a shorter affair than a long-term commitment, unless there are stronger connections (some boosts from Saturn, for example) between your charts. Nevertheless, the relationship can be very lively and interesting. Both of you are insatiably curious, and your interests can change quickly. Many partners have difficulty understanding this trait (they can easily find it threatening), but your partner should, at least in theory, identify with you on this level. 

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: You and your partner have Venus signs that are side-by-side. In astrology, side-by-side signs have very little in common. This generates plenty of interest and fascination between the both of you. You approach love in markedly different ways, and your partner mirrors many of the traits you lack, and vice versa. The attraction is strong between you. Your partner has a uniquely nurturing approach to love and partnership. His/her memory with regards to loved ones is outstanding, and extremely flattering! Your partner cherishes you, showering you with his/her concern and caring gestures. Your style in love is more cerebral than your partner's. Your partner is fascinated with your often cheerful disposition, your flexibility, and your intelligent charm. Over time, your very different approaches to love can surface as difficulties, with the bottom line a clash of values. You are flirtatious with your partner, and your teasing is actually a true show of love. Until your partner recognizes this, it can be difficult for him/her to feel nurtured and cared for. Your lover is sensitive in matters of the heart, although he/she doesn't always want to show it. More than likely, your partner will play along with your lighthearted games, but may ultimately long for more warmth. You believe that any problem can be solved by talking it through. Your partner will certainly try to work through problems with you, but, in his/her heart, believes in and values a more emotional bond—a bond that would not only be difficult to verbalize, but that might even be cheapened if it is defined with words. Your partner shows love through gestures and commitment, and may leave you wanting for fun and excitement. On the positive side, you will be able to lean on your lover for emotional support and value his/her ability to make you feel safe. This is important because you can go through some very insecure and uncertain moments in your life. Your partner will appreciate your flexibility more than anything, and reward you with a commitment that is difficult to break. Try to pay more attention to tenderness in your exchanges with your lover, as this can only strengthen the bond between you. 

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Leo: The first thing you will notice about each other is that you share a common sense of fun in love. Both of you are playful lovers—some might even say childlike! Your love of variety, however, may leave your partner feeling a little threatened, simply because your partner desires to be the center of your attention! When you are in love, you enjoy talking, and your lover will appreciate the easy flow of communication between you. Your partner's immense need for security in partnership may surface as what appears to be downright jealousy, especially since you don't appear (to the naked eye, at least) to be the most loyal or steadfast of partners. When your partner feels insecure or threatened, he/she is given to melodrama. Because this is not your nature in love, you don't fully understand this kind of behavior, and you might even find your partner's displays somewhat amusing and entertaining! As fun as your partner is at times, constancy is more important to him/her than it is to you. Your lover might interpret your need for variety and stimulation as superficial or flighty. Despite these differences, however, this pairing is an intriguing and (mostly) positive one. Particularly if your Venus forms a sextile to your partner's Venus, you will find much to like about each other, and this mutual appreciation can warm both of your hearts.

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: Because your partner values intelligence and communication in a partner, there can be quite a bit of mental attraction between you and your Venus in Virgo partner. Both of you are somewhat restless and curious people. Although sharing ideas is important to both of you, you may be less discriminating than your partner in terms of who you communicate with—as well as what you talk about. Your partner comes alive in an established relationship. You, on the other hand, require a little more freedom and may often turn to other people in addition to your partner for mental stimulation. This is healthy for you, but it may be somewhat intimidating for your lover, as he/she prefers to be the most indispensable person in your life. You have a rather happy-go-lucky disposition in love, and you love to tease and joke. Your lover tends to be more sensitive in matters of the heart, and might take some of your cajoling a little too seriously for your liking. You thrive on variety, and you tire easily of a love relationship that becomes too predictable. Your partner is quite restless as well, but is at his/her best in an established, rather predictable, and safe relationship. Both of you are flexible people, although you can take this to a greater extreme than your partner and this can make him/her feel uncomfortable. If your Venus in Virgo lover begins to question your sincerity and constancy, remind your partner how much you appreciate your relationship. Thoughtfulness might make all the difference! 

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Libra:  This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounce and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You will certainly fill your partner's need for communication, as he/she thrives on feedback. There can be considerable respect between you. You enjoy plenty of social and mental stimulation—the more variety, the better— and so does your Venusian Libra partner! However, your partner's focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while you are not so specific in your needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may complain that you are not as romantic as he/she is, and that you are a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with your wit. You may wonder why your partner seems to need you to spend a lot of time together. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. Nevertheless, this relationship can contain markedly less of the jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperating with each other is a piece of cake!




How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio: This has got to be one of the most challenging combinations! An odd couple? Absolutely. But remember that we often gravitate towards challenges, and we usually learn a great bit from people who are markedly different than ourselves. It seems that "like attracts like" on a spiritual level, but on the physical plane, opposites often attract! Initially, the attraction between you may be intense. Both of you are curious lovers (albeit in completely different ways!), and you can be entirely fascinated with one another. But the very differences that attracted you to each other in the first place can turn into serious "issues" as time goes on. Both of you are provocative in your own way. You are a tease, a flirt. This doesn't necessarily mean that you flirt with everyone, but you do infuse a lot of lighthearted fun into your relationship. Your partner's love nature is intense. He or she craves intimacy, and when intimacy is threatened, your partner can become very provocative in ways that are difficult to see for the untrained eye. The means by which your partner attempts to regain a sense of control will vary depending on the type of Venusian Scorpio he or she is. Your partner knows how to push your buttons, and can become quite skilled at doing so in subtle ways. Your partner wants your soul, not just your body! You have an entirely different view of partnership. You want it to be fun, while your partner will gladly sacrifice fun for intensity. Learning to blend these distinctly different styles and values can be challenging, but with success, very rewarding!

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius:  Your Venus signs are in opposite signs of the zodiac, but you share some similarities. Both of you are lovers of freedom in your relationships, and neither of you will turn down the chance for a stimulating conversation. Although there isn't always a "meeting of minds" between you two, there definitely will be some passionate discussions. Both you and your partner are somewhat restless, neither lasting long in a relationship that is confining or stuffy. Your partner tends to be more passionate than you in terms of beliefs and visions, sometimes to the point of expecting his or her partner to adopt the same belief systems, but you share a common love of fun and humor in love. Unless there are strong supporting aspects in synastry, the relationship may be broken impulsively. Both of you benefit from a partner who grounds you and reminds you of the long term. You may not find these qualities in each other. Your partner values honesty from a lover, while you value mental exchanges, period. Restlessness in partnership is something you both share, and it's best that you try to channel that energy into shared activities, such as traveling, instead of finding holes in your relationship. Remembering that opposites often do attract, this relationship is certainly workable if neither of you clings to your ways self-righteously. Learning from each other, and trying to strike a balance, will pay off. Together, you can easily become inspired.

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: This is one of the more unusual pairings that can be fascinating and frustrating at the same time. You have a lighter attitude toward love and commitment than your partner, and you can certainly help infuse your relationship with humor, liveliness, and activity. Your partner is rather concerned about commitment, and often plans for the future. He/she is sensual and practical at the same time, perhaps a little shy or awkward when it comes to the first stages of love, but really quite dependable in the long haul. Your partner likes his or her solitude, and you like your space. If you can avoid feeling threatened by your partner's need for alone time, and simply take advantage of those moments to pursue some of your many and varied interests, this can work well. This partner is more able to handle your quips and teasing than others, although he or she might complain that your head is in the clouds. His or her feet are definitely on the ground, but your partner does not shy away from ambition. You might find your partner downright boring. This isn't to say your partner is boring, but you do favor a livelier, more active partner than him or her. Your lover might be inclined to think you are as substantial as cotton candy! It's all in perception, as well as your different values. This is not considered to be an easy pairing, as we are mixing Air with Earth and Mutability with Cardinality. Gemini and Capricorn have little in common. Nevertheless, many couples have such combinations, probably because we are often attracted to differences. Perhaps it's because we sense that the other person has what we lack, and vice versa! 

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: This combination is definitely one of the easier pairings. Certainly, you stimulate each other, enjoy being together, and find plenty of common interests. Both of you love to talk, finding a partnership that is growth-oriented and mentally stimulating a plus. You will find that your partner, more than most people, understands your tendency to be a bit inconstant. Others might call it flightiness, but your partner appreciates your changeability. Your partner, however, is more stubborn than you are. Your moods change quickly, and while your partner can hardly be labeled predictable, he or she is not as flexible as you are. This can cause a few problems, although if love is strong between you, you will probably be the one to make adjustments when needed. Each of you understands that partners need a little space to grow on their own, and the minimal amount of possessiveness and jealousy in your partnership will be appreciated on both sides. Liveliness, cheerfulness, and plenty of activity characterizes your partnership. This is a creative combination, and while you work on keeping things fresh, your partner will help steady you. Mutual admiration is a rare quality, and it is more than likely that you have it.

How You Relate to a Partner with Venus in Pisces:  Different needs in romance and partnership can be a source of fascinated attraction, and can also cause plenty of conflicts! Your desire for communication is strong, and your partner, too, wants to connect with a partner. However, you put more value in mental stimulation and your partner values the power of understatement in romance. While you prefer everything to be defined, your partner has a hard time making definite statements when it comes to matters of the heart. Both of you are kind, live-and-let-live sorts, and this quality will certainly help the partnership. You also share a certain measure of inconsistency and changeability when it comes to love. The main difference here is your needs in love. Your partner relies on intuition, preferring to keep love on an emotional level. Cornering him or her for answers, definitions, or analyses of your partnership won't get you very far—perhaps only frustrated! Your energy leaves your partner unsettled at times, while his or her elusiveness can be difficult for you to understand. Your playfulness may, at times, unnerve your rather sensitive partner, although he or she is generally forgiving. What makes sense is to focus on the positive in your pairing—both of you are flexible, intelligent people who are capable of meeting each other's needs as long as love and tolerance are in place.
