Venus in Aquarius

If you have Venus in Aquarius, your affections are expressed in an open, unconventional and rather detached way. Socializing, bringing people together and having many friends and acquaintances very much appeal to you. Because you value friendship so highly, you may be more comfortable being a friend than a lover. One thing’s for sure – you highly dislike possessive, clingy relationships. You want to be free to do whatever you want with whomever you like.

You want an intellectual or spiritual connection with your partner and this may even be the preferred substitute over a very intimate or emotional bonding. You need a partner who will give you plenty of freedom, allowing you to be your own person, and not be too demanding emotionally. You are charming, happy and original, but also, cool, calm and detached. This detachment is beneficial because you, as a rule, are never possessive of people or things. The feelings you have tend to be filtered through your mind and intellectualized. You need to learn warmth and understanding.

With Venus in Aquarius you’re universal in your love of others, and collect a great circle of friends and acquaintances from all walks and strata of life. You’re fair and democratic, support humanitarian groups and efforts, and are original and unconventional in both your personal relationships and your artistic self-expression. As a child you may not have received the love and show of feeling that you needed. In your intimate life, therefore, you can be aloof, detached, impersonal, and even cold, and may have a hard time showing the emotions and personal bias that your intimates demand. If your Venus is in hard or quincunx aspect to Mars, Saturn or Uranus, your love life may be a difficult and painful one, until through willing sacrifice and passionate understanding your past karma of love is redeemed.
