It is so empowering knowing what, how, and why certain planets influence us in certain ways, and there are a couple of planets that really influence us in our love lives. Isn’t that amazing? I thought why not share which planets you always need to keep an eye on when looking at your love life and how to live up to the potential of what these planets represent in your life.

So, what are you waiting for? Continue reading to find out more about how each of these planets influences your love life in their unique way and how you can harness their power to really live up to the highest potential of your romances!

The Moon, The Secret To The Depths Of Your Soul

The Moon rules our emotions in Astrology. It is the thing that represents the way we respond to the world on a basic instinct. It is our reactions, the way we show our vulnerability, our intuition, our daily habits, and all the little rituals we do to feel safe and secure in the world.

The Moon is definitely very sensitive but seriously packs a punch in our love lives. Out of all the planetary bodies, I think the Moon is probably the most important and helpful when it comes to understanding our relationships.

After all, our emotions are the way we relate to others and show our empathy and compassion to the world. It is also the way we respond to the highs and lows of life, the joys, and the heartbreaks. 

When I look at the chart of a couple, the first thing that I usually look at is if their Moon signs are compatible. This by far outweighs what I see when I look at their Sun signs. You can see the way two people respond to each other’s emotions by looking at their Moon signs.

Did you know that each planet is either comfortable, uncomfortable, or totally neutral in a particular sign in Astrology? When it comes to the Moon, it is most comfortable in Cancer or Taurus, so if you have your Moon in either of these signs, you are lucky!

Because the Moon is all about nurturing, and taking care of needs it makes sense that the Moon would thrive in these two signs. Both Cancer and Taurus are very nurturing signs and love to take care of others.

But unfortunately, the Moon is quite unhappy in Scorpio and Capricorn. These two signs have a tough time expressing their emotions and find it hard to be vulnerable or let their guard down. They tend to have all their emotional walls up and it can be hard for them to let other people in.

All the other signs would be considered neutral, but it is a good idea to take a look at which element the sign falls in. There are four different elements in Astrology, namely; Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. 

The Fire signs consist of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius while Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

Each of these elements makes it easy to tell how the Moon would express themselves in this element. Take Fire, for example, they tend to be passionate, bold, fiery, and forthcoming with their emotions. 

Earth signs tend to be down-to-earth, practical, and reliable, while Air signs intellectualize their emotions and express the way they feel through thinking and communicating. And lastly, Water signs are usually quite emotional, intuitive, and sensitive.

If you would like to know if you are likely to get along with someone based on their Moon sign the best rule of thumb is to check if you share the same Moon sign element or if the two elements are complementary.

Fire and Air work well together, as well as Earth and Water. When your Moon sign is in a good relationship with your partners it is usually quite a good omen for your relationship to be successful because the two of you can relate to each other on an emotional level. 

Understanding your Moon sign also gives you an opportunity to be able to express your needs easier to the person you are in a relationship with. This makes moving through relationships so much easier.

Venus – The Most Romantic Of The Trio

Ah, Venus, the planet of love, romance, and pleasure – need I say more? This planet will tell you everything you need when it comes to your love life. Venus is the planet that rules your likes and dislikes.

If you have a type when it comes to dating, you can pretty much blame your Venus placement for this. If you have a thing for bad boys, you might have your Venus in Aries or Scorpio. If artistic, creative types are more your thing you likely have your Venus in Leo or Pisce

Venus is the way you express yourself in your relationships and the way you want to be loved. You might say Venus is the clue to your love language when it comes to Astrolo

Venus is just like the Moon and feels more at home in certain signs, these signs would be Taurus, Libra, and Pisces. Venus really gets to shine when she finds herself in one of these signs. 

But this also means she is uncomfortable in other signs and romance might feel trickier for her to express herself in the signs of Aries, Virgo, and Pisces and neutral in the rest of the Zodiac

Do not get discouraged when you see that Venus is placed in a trickier sign. This does not mean you are destined for relationship failure – not in the least! You might just find a different, more challenging journey to find your prince. 

When love and romance don’t come to you easily, you are likely to be more grateful and work harder for it. So don’t be discouraged by any means. Venus just simply colors in the way you love and like to be loved.

If you want to know if your Venus sign is complimentary with your partners, you can follow the rule of thumb I mentioned above when it comes to the elements in the section about the Moon signs.

Mars – What Gets You Turned On?

Mars is the planet of sex and desire. While Venus might be the planet that helps you to fall in love, Mars is the planet that helps you in bed. It is the planet that drives you in life and gets you what you want.

It is also the planet that comes out in the bedroom. It pushes you to pursue your carnal pleasures because it rules what turns you on and what gets you hot and heavy. If Venus rules all the lovey-dovey aspects when it comes to love, then Mars rules all the raw passion.

This is why it is so important to know what your Mars sign is when it comes to experiencing pleasure in the bedroom. If you know your Mars sign you are more likely to understand your turn-ons and turn-offs.

Mars is particularly important in a man’s chart, while Venus is more important in a woman’s chart. Knowing your man’s Mars sign can be game-changing in your relationship, because of this you will know exactly how to please your man and get him super turned on!

Just like Venus and the Moon, Mars also feels more at home in certain signs, like Aries, Scorpio, and Capricorn, and a little more like a stranger in Taurus, Libra, and Cancer and neutral in the rest.

One of the best ways to see if you and your man have amazing chemistry is to see if your Venus sign and his Mars sign are compatible. You can follow the same rule of thumb as with the Moon and Venus.

That being if your signs are in the same element, or are in complementary elements like Fire and Air or Earth and Water.  If they are the chances of the two of you connecting are extremely high and you can expect to have quite an exciting sex life together. 

These are just some tidbits to unlocking the best love life for you possible. Astrology is a wonderful way to help you navigate through your relationships. It is definitely one of the best ways to understand yourself and others.

  1. I am a libra on Scorpio cusp. October 21. My significant other is a Gemini June 3. We are both air signs. Are we compatible? We have not been intimate yet.

      1. Hi Mary Jo,

        Well, physical attraction between you two is undeniable.
        Your Venus is opposite his Venus. Tension produced by opposition generates sexual chemistry, but also different tastes when it comes to love. You don’t see romance the same way. Also, you need to give each other lots and lots of space. There are some challenging aspects between your Saturn and Uranus that are affecting his Mars so the key is to avoid focusing on problems and be more tolerant of each other’s differences.

        I hope all goes well for you and your man.

        1. I am a leo female I am married to a virgo for 17 yrs. He is mean and is always saying I can not do this or that. Leo 7-25 virgo 8-29. I am on love with a sagittarius birth 12-4. I wish I know if we can make it, i will divorce in a heart beat. Please help

          1. Hi Good,

            I can understand why you are attracted to a Sagittarius man. Leo and Sagittarius will instantly hit it off and they’ll want to get closer very quickly. They may not have a whole lot in common as far as interests but they have enough going that they’ll keep each other excited in a relationship.
            On the other hand, Leo and Virgo are not a good match. Virgo tends to be critical and Leo cannot handle criticism. Virgo’s passive intelligence and reserved nature frustrates the Leo woman, and this leads to petty arguments over the toaster or who left the toilet seat down or up.
            Leo needs to have that roaring ego regularly fed with compliments, and Virgo doesn’t say anything he does not mean.
            I hope this situation will be resolved in your favor.

  2. thank you, Anna. Now I understand why are we not so compatible as it looked at the beginning…
    My Venus in Leo, his Mars in Virgo (incompatible); my Moon in Pisces, his in Aquarius (incompatible); only Venus we keep both in Fire signs (me Leo, him Sagittarius). That’s why we had to split one week ago without knowing all this!! It’s amazing how Astrology is accurate!…

  3. I feel deeply emotionally in love with Scorpio water sign and I’m a Gemini air sign we seem to clash I did best to hold on to this man it goes against us plus he’s very voilatile and extreme and gets bored quick and blames me for everything wrong it’s so sad upsetting il try move on but deep love still h blows cold and drops me he uncommitted not loyal or keeps to what he says he’s changable and inconsistent behaviours regards Lisa Holloway

  5. Hello,thanks this for this information it was really interesting.Now I’m learning and understand standing how and why explains all the emotions,and thought that occur.But can you tell me Myself as a Scorpio and Taurus compatible?

  6. If my birthday is on November 9, 1984 can I tell me where I’m at as far as my moon sign, sun sign, and all the others you mentioned please.

  7. how do you find out your moon, Venus, and Mars signs and to know if they’re compatible with your significant other?

  8. Hi, I love this so interesting! My & the man I have my heart set on moon signs, mars signs are compatible, our Venus signs not so much, fire & water. But my Venus sign fire & his mars sign air are compatible. We have amazing chemistry, yet he refuses to see it. He won’t forgive the past (we have had our ups n downs) & are currently separated. I’m trying to get him to see we are meant to be more than just friends. He’s stuck on the just friends. I belief he’s scared of the amazing chemistry n love we share? Any advice on this would be appreciated. Thanks so much love reading your stuff!
    Love n Light!

  9. Hi I’m think my moon is in Aries but I’m not sure about my Venus or mars? My bday is 11/2/76. I am a Scorpio. ThNk

  10. I divorced an Air sign in 2008 and married a Water sign in 2007. The Air sign was always a disappointment from the beginning, but I still hung in there for the 2 sons we had even though I tried to leave him many times during our 34 years of marriage. He always threatened me, my things, pets, and others around me if I left him before our divorce. Now, I’m married to a Water sign and he is an Angel sent from God. I’ve never felt the feelings I have for this man for any other. I am his world and he is mine too. He is the best person I’ve ever had the opportunity to have in my life’s blessings. Not too long ago, last month to be precise, a long, lost, love of mine from 1973, when we were only about 13 years young, came back into my life. He is an Air sign, again….yuck!!! Anyways, this guy, came w/promises to marry me, after his 2nd divorce he is muddling through right now, and asks me if I can make do w/$1500 per week and if I don’t mind having one of his adopted teenage son’s living w/us. I agreed and he spoke of getting a home for us all near the ocean and then he just disappeared. He had been struggling w/trying to block his ex from facebook and his phone and I told him how and the next thing you know….I was eliminated too. He also told me that his 2 exes are best friends to top everything off. Go figure. Sheesh. I was willing to divorce my Water-sign for the Air-head. Thanks be to God….Air-sign fell off the planet somehow. EOS

  11. I am still confused about how the moon signs work. I am Libra and my moon sign is Cancer. His is Virgo and Moon sign is Leo.
    Do these attract one another or am I in a hopeless relationship

  12. Bon dia Anna !
    Gostaria de saber como posso saber isso de vénus da lua et de marte!?
    O meu homem é gémeos do dia 22 de Junho.
    Eu só aquário do Dia 24 de Janeiro.
    Como posso fazer para saber a minha lua como estou en vénus e marte com o meu homem!?
    Thank you very much my dear! ?

  13. My man has moon in aquarius,Venus in leo, Mars in taurus while I have moon in Scorpio, Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Libra. Is this a good relationship compatibility?

    1. Hi Ella!

      You didn’t mention your sun sign which also plays a role. His Venus indicates he’s best with Leo or another fire sign (Aries, Sagittarius). Your Mars is in Libra which means the best guy for you would be a Libra or other air sign (Gemini, Aquarius). Looking at that his Moon being Aquarius is a good thing. That’s emotional connection or understanding. That may be the ticket to your compatibility. You two could compliment each other nicely. You should have a chart comparison done to find out more.

  14. I’m a Capricorn,i love a libra man,6 years and 7 months younger than me,is it compatible?….how to be happy for lifetime with him,how to manage the relationship?

  15. Hi Anna… Me and my significant other been together for 10 yrs..Hes sept 29th 1971… Im November 7th 1972..libra/ scorpio couple..what do u think of our relationship ???..are we sexy together???? lol…thanks for ur article..it is very interesting!?????

    His rising : unknown
    His mars: Scorpio

    We were together for slmost 2 years, split up but can not stay away from each other…is there a future here for us?

  17. Anna, my sun sign Scorpio, moon sign taurus he is sun sign libra and moon sign Sagittarius. Is there any compatibility here

    1. Hi Kirsten,

      This it not very easy match. Libra man is very level headed, not jealous, and seeks balance in his life. Scorpio woman is hot, passionate, jealous, and is striving for success. In the beginning, the two are drawn to each other on a very carnal level. As for the Moon signs, you are best suited with a partner who is looking for something that is long-term considering your Taurus Moon. Earth signs are famous for long-term planning and goals. On the other hand, with Sagittarius Moon he has a strong need for personal space. Usually, Moon in Sagittarius people are always surrounded by others so he can easily make new friends because he is an outspoken and easygoing person. Emotionally, you are not on the same page but there is always a possibility for a relationship to be successful if you are both willing to make an effort.

    1. Hi Re,

      Well, if you are born days apart from each other, most likely you will have the same Venus, not necessarily the Moon. The Moon moves fast and spends about 2.5 days in each sign. Taurus man and Taurus woman is a great match! You are both incredibly romantic, deeply sensitive people and, for the most part, you have an emotional stability that serves each other very well. You’re both ready to settle down and do some long-term planning.
      Best of luck to you both!

  18. My boyfriend is an Aquarius and I’m a Virgo. His Birthdate is February 4th 1953 and my Birthdate is September 3rd, 1953. Does that mean that we could be soulmates and also be compatible?

    1. Dear Carla,
      Virgo has a more methodical, less progressive agenda than Aquarius. Virgo is also an earth sign, which is opposite to Aquarius’ air. They aren’t necessarily fully opposed, but the two elements are not necessarily the best at harmonizing. There is a lot of potential for compatibility in this relationship, but it may be a situation where the two of you almost connect, but then drift apart. If you have a particularly strong intellectual bond from the start, though, it may turn out that Aquarius adds conceptual inspiration to Virgo’s efficiency and you may be able to enact grand plans. I hope all goes well for you both.

  19. What sign do you think I would be compatible with and would we find true love together? I’m a Virgo. My birthdate is September 3rd, 1953.

    1. Dear Carla,

      The best match for you would be a Taurus man. Why? Because his Sun would be compatible with your Virgo Sun and also with your Cancer Moon. Another option would be a Cancer man, because his Sun would perfectly match both lights in your chart. I wish you all the best.

  20. Dear Anna, my birthdate is august 2, 1972. I am a leo. My love of the past 2 years is a Gemini, birthdate may 26,1991. He disappeared six months ago. I’m still sick to my stomach. I feel my spirit has left me. Please help me understand.

    1. Dear Anita,
      You must also give him lots of space because he never wants to feel smothered or controlled. He wants to feel as though he’s trusted to do things he wants to do or needs to do without worrying about you becoming jealous or angry with him. Gemini men have many interests and like to keep busy. As long as you accept this about him and he gives you the love you want, you two can make for a wonderful long lasting relationship that will stand the test of time. Keeping open communication will help them both to keep things flowing. If he has disappeared on you, you need to track him down and work things out with him. If he has moved forward, then you need to move forward as well. I hope this situation will be resolved in your favor.

    1. Hi Dallas,
      The Libra man and Gemini soulmate relationship is definitely possible. Actually the Libra man and Gemini woman marriage is also very possible because they’re just so fantastic together.
      Emotionally they are synchronized. They tend to open up easily to each other. They may not do it at the get go but once they both feel the easy comfort they will build, opening up will not be hard.
      Best of luck to you both!

  21. I am virgo he is acuario when we start every thing was great have and argument with his sister ,and for years he will bring the problems up ,I am married to him, it He left home ,8 month ago ,creo communication He is very stuburn, I send him little msm for wedding anniversary ,for Xmas for his Birthday but nothing, so now I stay silent

    1. Dear Liliana,
      A possible issue that will arise is Virgo’s constant planning. Virgo needs to meticulously think out most areas of their life, which might put the spontaneous Aquarius off. Aquarius may even think this constant need to plan is unnecessary and that Virgo is just borrowing trouble. Virgo, on the other hand, will find Aquarius’ rebellious nature to be unacceptable. Virgo may become impatient with Aquarius’ lack of planning or regard to rules, so distancing is possible, but I must admit that I am really puzzled that 8 months have passes since you last heard from him. I hope he reaches out to you soon to explain the reasons behind this. I hope this situation will be resolved in your favor.

  22. Dear Anna,
    My birthday is on 02 of November 1995, and he is a Taurus man born on 25 of April 1991.
    Is there any compatibility here?

  23. Dear Anna,

    My birthday is on 2nd of November 1995, and he was born on 25th of April 1991.
    Is there any compatibility here? Thank you

    1. Hi Ada,

      You both want to dominate the relationship. Stubbornness may be present, and you may find it difficult to fit into the relationship. You have to learn to coordinate your will power and to learn how to compromise and listen to each other.  
      His Moon is in Pisces, he is an emotional, intuitive and takes things slow while your Virgo Moon is overly analytical and perhaps even critical of his behavior. You don’t understand each other’s emotional needs and great deal of compromise is required if the will is present from both ends.

  24. Hi Anna,
    I am a Gemini woman who met this Libra man online. He had a bad experience from his marriage and I as well. We connected so well and he was someone I truly believed I could be with as we communicated effortlessly. However, he wanted sex and I wanted commitment before sex. Unfortunately, his indecision got the best of him and we no longer talk as he said he wasn’t all in and didn’t want to hurt me or himself. I felt pretty hurt by this as I thought what we shared was true. He came back to the site after 2 months of staying away, but we didn’t nor haven’t spoken to each other since. I really wish we were together as I barely get that type of connection with anyone 🥺

    1. Dear Belle,

      While both of you are intelligent, you seem to have a different brand of intellect. You don’t relate as well as you could on this level and obviously have different expectations. It’s not a bad thing as long as you can openly communicate.

      However, sometimes communication itself may be a problem. Libra man is sensitive to the way a woman speaks to him. Gemini woman can sometimes say truthful things in a way that hurts his feelings or wounds his pride.

      If you don’t learn how to talk to each other or listen without defense, this could become a real problem.
      I hope all goes well for you both!

  25. I’m a Capricorn December 31, 1981 and the guy I’m interested in is a Virgo August 30, 1976. I’m not sure if he is really interested in me. He doesn’t show his emotions. I think that he has feelings for me but am unsure. Would we be compatible? How do I get him to open up?

    1. Dear Lee,
      He has a Scorpio Moon. He is loyal to you but his feelings are intense and strong. He can read the undercurrents of things not being said. He can seem very unsettled sometimes and he is very analytical considering he has a Virgo Venus. He is timid and is looking for balance and harmony. His Sun is opposite to your Moon. This is very important because it represents deep polarity between you. You have more differences than similarities and this can cause conflict but you feel each other which can help you create balance. He is more practical and you are more emotional. You are his missing part. This aspect brings mutual magnetism and fascination, but it could also bring hurt feelings. It takes good communication and emotional maturity for this type of opposition to work. 
      I hope all goes well for you both!

  26. I am a Leo, he is a Libra. I have never been with a Libra before. I can tell he is beginning to open up with me and I take control so easy but I am letting him do the leading. I’m usually way ahead when I am in love, but I’m holding back with him because I feel he needs to know where he is at. What is your best suggestion for me?

    1. Dear Kaye,
      Libra man Leo woman are like a dynamic duo when it comes to being social. They’re both into being out and about. They want to be around other people and be the light in the dark room.
      Where these two will likely struggle the most is with Trust issues. Libra man isn’t that jealous. He loves to seek out attention, receive it, and sees no problem with it. He thinks his Leo woman should trust him.
      However, the Leo woman can become very jealous seeing him carrying on with other women or seeing the other women hitting on him all the time. Whether that be online or in person, she’ll lose her cool.
      Having this in mind, he should know that you trust him. That is the key principle with Libra men – reciprocity.
      I hope all goes well for you both!

  27. Hello Anna, I just found my partners moon sign. I am Gemini and he’s an Aries. Both my Venus and Mars are neutral his are Venus uncomfortable and Mars comfortable. He of course is a fire sign and I am an air sign. If I am interpreting everything correctly then we should be very compatible?

    1. Dear Janet,

      Yes, this is a good match! You two will turn heads together for both your good looks and your sheer volume! Being with a man who has an Aries moon is a thrill for the Gemini Moon woman in most cases. The weak spot for both of these Moon signs within a relationship can be a lack of speed and stimulation which both of these signs can offer to one another in spades.
      I hope all goes well for you both!
