Venus, the planet of love, beauty and sensuality enters fiery Aries on February 7th, 2020.

Spending 30 days in a single sign, Venus gives us around a month to make use of this passionate, extroverted energy as it ripples through all of our love lives! You game?

Here are 5 Things YOU need to know about Venus in Aries!

1. Don’t Hesitate – Speed Dating’s IN!

Upfront and direct, Aries comes first. Leading the way, it’s a sign that’s not afraid of putting itself out there. So if someone’s catching your eye, or you’ve been harboring a secret crush, well, move fast. Or somebody else will.

But on the other hand, as quickly as you’re falling into love, expect to fall out faster. Love under a Venus Aries transit takes no prisoners, so you may be hard pushed to keep up with who’s with who on the dating scene…

Along with water sign Scorpio, astrologers agree that here in Aries, Venus is in her “detriment” here. This means that in relationships, Venus’ highest expressions of love, harmony, and sensuality can be overlooked. Instant gratification and lusty encounters are more likely on the cards. But if you’re already in a committed relationship, then this could give your sex life a nice little boost!

2. Love’s a Competition

This astrology leaves little room for indecision or dilly-dalliers.

Venus may be seen as meek and delicate in the mythologies of old, but here in Aries, she gets a new boost of firepower. And she aims to win.

So if you’re in the dating game, anyone who leaves you hanging will be getting a firm no, and their number blacklisted. Plus, ruling planet Mars’ influence here means the romantic realms could start resembling a metaphorical battlefield.

Who can you slay next?!

If you already have a lot of Aries energy in your natal chart, you’ll most likely be the one fighting for victory… but watch out for any fiery temperaments tipping over into arrogance and self-importance.

Your lover’s not a conquest to overcome!

3. Loosen the Reins

If you’re in a long-term love match, your partner (or you) may start expressing a little more independence than usual under this fiery astrology.

Ruled by Mars, it’s hard to keep an Aries anything tied down, and trust us, it won’t take long before you start feeling those same urges too for freedom too. Let this be your warning – allow each other enough space and grace to take the lead in your own lives, when you each need to this month. This may not sound romantic but it’ll be the remedy to any relationship angst that springs up.

4. Keep it Fresh!

The cardinal signs (also Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) simply need to feel like new things are happening in life to be happy. Same goes for love. So let that comfort zone stre-e-e-tch a little this month.

Do things you’ve never done before. Go places you’ve never been to before. Darn, wear clothes you’ve never worn before (and take them off in ways you’ve never taken them off before…)

This astrology needs you to keep everybody guessing, so keep it fresh, girl!

5. Passion is Ignited

As the sign of the leader, Aries’ influence here on the love planet is likely to see spontaneity rise to the top of the agenda. Risk-taking becomes a sport, as the thrill of the chase takes over and passion soars!

Anything too run-of-the-mill will likely be a real turn off, so expect to push a few boundaries (that’s in and out of the bedroom!)

Just like other fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius), one of the upsides of Venus in Aries is the extra shot of passion that so often comes for the ride – cue those sizzling hot sheets!
