Venus in Aries: Fast Love!

Venus in Aries: Fast Love!

Love planet Venus moves into fast and furious Aries on 7 February 2020. Venus rules relationships, love and pleasure and when it’s in Aries things can happen pretty quickly. You could fall in love hard and fast, fall out of love at the click of two fingers or look for a bit of instant gratification without any of the boring in between bits. Love is all about the thrill of the chase and the excitement of the new with Venus in Aries: spontaneous, passionate and full of bravado! It’s got an “I want it and I want it now” attitude with little or no regard for intricacies and diplomacy. Watch out for any signs that a relationship is becoming tenuous. If so, get ready for changes! And with Aries, it could all happen very fast! Relationships progress fast, one way or another! Venus rules money too and you could find yourself acting more impulsively with your cash.

Venus in Aries lives for the moment. The downside? A search for instant gratification could cause you to spend carelessly, jump into a relationship without thinking, fight or have a series of one night stands… The upside? Venus in Aries brings you passion and excitement in the here and now! This can help you re-light the spark with your sweetie, stand up for what you want and experience total renewal in your love-life!

What does Venus symbolize in astrology?

Venus represents art and beauty but today we associate Venus most closely with love. She rules all kinds of love, physical love, love of humanity, love and devotion. In modern times we have an idealistic perspective on love and everyone thinks Venus represents love as in fidelity and romance. The true picture, however, gives a different story and traditionally Venus embodied love, sex and power.

Do you have a secret crush? Here's how you can make them fall in love with you!

Venus’ predecessors in the mythology line-up were Inanna and  Ishtar, around whom cults developed worshipping both goddesses. Part of the Sumerian pantheon of Gods and Goddesses in ancient Mesopotamia, they ruled sexual love, fertility, prosperity and warfare. Ishtar in particular was known for being “cruel and wayward”.

Move forward to Roman mythology and Venus was Goddess of prostitutes, although she could turn the hearts of men and women from sexual vice to virtue. In other words, Venus ruled all aspects of love (think of the term venereal disease which derivates from the word, Venus).

In Greek mythology, Venus was Aphrodite who ruled sexual love, desire, beauty and fertility. She was forced into an arranged marriage with “ugly” Haphaestus but was vehemently independent and constantly in search of a new lover. One of her more familiar lovers was Ares, God of War, whom she later married. But she had many affairs and many children, Eros, Rhodos, Hermaphroditus and Aneas, to name but a few.

Whilst Venus is in Aries, it’s a chance to readdress the balance of viewing Venus as being only receptive, meek and charming and remind ourselves that the female Goddess was traditionally strong and powerful.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, a competitive sign and when you have a planet in Aries, there’s a part of you that wants to win and come first. Venus in Aries is a particularly powerful placing for women and whether singing power ballads or strutting their stuff on stage, there are some feisty and strong female performers with this placing:
