Love, pleasure, and attraction all fall within the starry realms of our closest neighboring planet: Venus.

Often claimed as Earth’s “twin”, She spends around 30 days in a single sign and is never more than two zodiac signs away from the Sun.

As the only planetary Goddess in the solar system, Venus activates magnetism. She’s the ruler of both Taurus and Libra – signs know for their sensuality and love of beauty. Depending on where she sits in the sky (and in addition to the astrology laid out in your natal chart) She affects how we all feel and act in our closest relationships, our methods of pleasure-seeking, our cravings for touch and sensation, and how we, in turn, are seduced by the world.

In simple terms, this all means that the zodiac sign Venus is currently crossing in the sky can serve as a potent tool for finding and creating beauty in the world, as well as expressing it authentically to those who matter.

In today’s collective horoscope Venus sails fiercely through Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac.

Beautiful Woman with Bow and Arrow and FoxFan the Flames, Love is an Adventure!

This fire-fueled astrological transit puts the focus firmly on expansion, using love, romance, and relationships as our tools to get there.

Whether you’re already coupled up or on the lookout for the man (or woman) of your dreams, Venus in Sag turns our love into a wild, wild ride! There are zero limits when the planet of love moves through the centaurs loins…. So get ready to roar!

As a fire sign, Sagittarius (along with Aries and Leo) can be one of the most lust-fueled of the zodiac. So have a little fun! Give your sensual side a ride – Sagittarius rules the hips. Need we say more ;)

Relationships are set to become a melting point of experimentation, as new frontiers are broached and boundaries pushed. This doesn’t mean breaking the rules – some may say Sag is a rebel, but it’s certainly no anarchist. This energy is all about running, headfirst into the unknown, until you discover what lights you up from the inside.

Venus in Sagittarius turns relationships into portals for personal growth

Unless your love is challenging, exciting and takes the shape of an adventure or two (or three or four), this astrology could make you feel like going it alone. Sagittarius’ free-spirited traits and adventurous spirit, means that the first sign of long-term commitment could put the dampers firmly on. Plus, ruling planet Jupiter’s drive to open, expand and amplify, mean that Venus here in this Zodiac sign needs to spread her wings and fly…

But be careful you don’t throw this astrology’s baby out with its bathwater.

Intimacy also leads to freedom, however much it feels like the opposite could be true. Sagittarius’ need to run free means that you could risk missing out on the expansion that comes with rooting in and using that soft emotional security to grow.

If you want true, strong, authentic relationships… don’t run away from them. If you’re a natural free-spirited flirt, Sagittarius’ medicine could taste strong for you here.

Who’s Catching Your Eye this Month?

The zodiac sign of the centaur has a wide-open mind, which means under this sky your attention will be piqued by anyone and everyone with an exotic flair. The more far-flung, the more attractive! So, if you want to impress, hone those stories of wild abandon, exploration, and adventure!

At its most carefree, this mutable energy (shared with signs Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces) can be fickle and flirtatious. And whilst sharing your affections may keep you entertained, be aware of bruising others’ feelings if your flirtation gets out of hand (a friendly word of warning).

Spontaneity can be a fun and oh-so-attractive side-effect of this astrological transit. All those crazy star-crossed-lover kinda things you’ve seen in the movies but never quite felt capable of doing yourself? This Astrology brings your most idealistic visions of love down to earth.

But watch out for any “grass is greener” feelings starting to rise. You may think somebody else’s adventure looks more fun than yours, but these feelings are likely as transient as the breeze… Instead, use this Venus transit to focus on what YOU want love to look like. And if it means a little compromise, well, that’s your edge to push…

But still, this sign will not be taken prisoner. So instead of sabotage, why not bring your lover along for the ride? You may just find you can expand, riding into the sunset as it descends over the horizon…together!
