If you’re feeling pretty confident knowing your Sun sign, you’re in an excellent spot to learn more about your core energy. Many people take the Sun sign so seriously that they use that as their primary relationship indicator.
But is there more to your love potential than your Sun sign? What else in your chart is waiting to inform you of your love style? Is your romantic capability more nuanced than you believed?
I’m Anna Kovach, Relationship Astrologer, and I am here to tell you that there is more to your love style than just your Sun sign can indicate! I have six key factors that I’d reference before I even glance at the Sun sign in compatibility readings.
You’re a complex person, like all of us. We’re full of contradictions and quirks that make us all who we are. And love is even more intricate at times! Luckily, I have six key factors that you can find in your birth chart that explain the love style that you need.
I have some profound knowledge to lay on you today, so if you’re ready, keep reading to find out the key factors to look for to find the type of love that you need!
6 Things To Look For In Your Birth Chart To Reveal What Kind Of Love You Need
1. Venus Is the Queen Of Love
Venus is the traditional planet of romance in Astrology. No other planet has more significant associations with romance than Venus. She’s the one that tells me the romance style that best suits you.
Venus is a social planet, so it often indicates any love. It operates at top gear in relationships, though. I’d certainly recommend looking at Venus to find your love language and how you function in a relationship setting since this is where she shines.
Everyone has a Venus, but not all Venus placements are created equal. Venus operates differently in every sign, just like the Sun does! You should be considering the sign of Venus first since this is the style of expression when it comes to love. This is what your lover is going to feel from you.
For example, Aries Venus is straightforward and a go-getter in love. She’s the one making the first move almost every time. On the contrary, a Pisces Venus is a dreamy woman who dreams of a fairy tale romance where she’s rescued from all harm by her Prince.
You’ll also need to glance at the house that Venus is in. This will show the context that your love is best expressed. Venus in the eighth house, for example, finds themselves in relationships that they must keep secret. On the contrary, Venus in the first house heavily identifies with their relationship to the point that it becomes a part of who they present themselves as.
2. Venus Aspects Set the Tone of Your Love
Nope, we’re not done talking about Venus yet! It’s so vital that you must look at all of the planets that touch your Venus as well. The planets that aspect your Venus will further describe the influence and strength of your Venus in your life.
Venus touching the important relationship planets are some of the most important indicators of your love life. The planets that touch it add a different flavor than just your Venus sign and house would indicate.
Venus-Moon aspects will lend your love style sensitivity and nurturing. Venus positively aspecting the Moon leads you to feel deeply comforted by your lover. Even ‘hard’ aspects between Venus and the Moon will not hurt much. This is an overall desirable configuration no matter what!
Venus-Sun aspects make you naturally attractive. You radiate vibes that make others see you as charming. Relationships are a core part of your life, and they energize you and keep you moving forward.
Venus-Neptune aspects create a desire for a dreamy romance that is an escape from the world. You’ll find yourself most comfortable in a relationship that has you feeling transported far away!
3. Your Moon Shows Your Deepest Needs
If you take one thing away from this article, never underestimate the Moon in your relationships! It’s not an obvious choice, but it’s vital to understand what you need in love. As a long-time Relationship Astrologer, I have found the Moon the most critical factor in relationships.
This may sound surprising, but it shouldn’t! The Moon represents what we need to feel safe. It’s how comfortable we feel around another person. If you think instantly on edge with another person, it might be your Moon telling you that they’re not giving you what you need to feel safe!
The sign that the Moon is in is going to indicate what brings you comfort. In a good relationship, your partner should be supremely comforting and non-threatening. The Moon is also connected to your past, indicating what triggers memories (good or bad) from your childhood. You’ll want a partner that plays well into this dynamic.
The sign of the Moon is how you nurture your partner and what you need to feel safe. For example, a Capricorn Moon will feel safest when honoring tradition, building a solid foundation, and having a nest egg of resources. On the other hand, a Gemini Moon would feel safest when they have a social group close by that they can express themselves to at any time.
The house that the Moon is in will indicate the area of life where you feel most comforted and where you receive comfort from others best. For example, Moon in your fourth house suggests that you are most settled at home with family, while Moon in the seventh house indicates you’re most at ease when you’re in a stable relationship.
4. Saturn Aspects Will Keep Your Love Solid
Saturn gets a bad rap in the Astrology realm. He’s painted as the big meanie who lays down the law in Astrology. And I won’t lie, he can be just that! But in relationships, Saturn is also what represents staying power. It shows the kind of person you’re willing to stay with for the long haul and what you’ll commit to.
This is extremely important in a serious relationship. This is just why it’s so important to give Saturn a chance when finding what you need in a partner. Saturn makes or breaks a relationship.
Saturn by itself with no assistance from other love placements isn’t a good omen. However, Saturn aspecting your love planets or in your love houses will add a dose of longevity and solidity to your love. Every good relationship has a dash of Saturn in the mix!
Saturn aspecting Venus positively means that you value long-term relationships. Your partner should be responsible and dedicated. Saturn in your seventh house tends to mean that your true love comes later in life after you’ve gained plenty of maturity in relationships.
Saturn in the fifth house indicates that your immediate romantic attraction is reserved for mature individuals. Older men are your jam, and with men like George Clooney running around out there, who could blame you?
5. The 5th House Describes Your Love At First Sight
The 5th house describes what will initially make us fall for someone. This is that X factor, the “love at first sight” feeling. If you want to know who would catch your eye and immediately intrigue you, this is the place to look.
Finding the sign on the fifth house cusp and the location of the planet that rules the fifth house sign is an excellent indicator of who you’ll fall in love with and the traits they should have. The person who embodies this sign’s qualities will give you butterflies in your stomach and have you up late at night rereading sweet texts from him!
As a rule of thumb, a water sign on the cusp of the fifth house will lead you to love someone emotionally available. A fire sign on the fifth house cusp will have you craving a passionate lover. An Earth sign means you’re turned on by someone reliable and present. And an air sign means that you need an intelligent and cerebral lover.
Look to the planets in your 5th house to describe your romantic life. These planets will show you more about how you flirt, how charming you are, and who you are automatically attracted to. A bunch of planets here is a strong indicator of a life full of various types of romance.
Finding the planet that rules the sign on the fifth house cusp will also assist in understanding your love nature. That planet automatically becomes a key to love, even if it’s not mentioned here! For example, if Gemini or Virgo is in the fifth house, you’ll look to Mercury in your chart to see what you value in love. In this case, you appreciate a good communicator who pays attention to the little things.
6. The 7th House Reveals Your Long-Term Love Style
The 7th house is the most obvious when it comes to a dedicated partnership. The 7th house should never be undersold for relationships because it’s the house of partnership! This house shows the type of person you’ll feel comfortable sticking around even once the honeymoon stage is over.
You’ll find that the sign on the 7th house cusp describes your ideal partner to a T. The sign here will also show what your partner sees most in you! For example, even if you’re a wild Sagittarius, if Taurus is in your 7th house, your partner sees the more steadfast and stable part of you.
The planets that lie in your 7th house are just as telling. A mass of planets in this house indicates a massive focus on partnerships in your lifetime. You’ll find that you don’t feel yourself unless you’re dedicated to someone.
If you have no planets in your 7th house, don’t panic! It’s just time to find the planet that rules the sign on your 7th house cusp. For reference, Aries is ruled by Mars, Taurus and Libra by Venus, Gemini and Virgo by Mercury, Cancer by the Moon, Leo by the Sun, Scorpio by Mars and Pluto, Sagittarius by Jupiter, Capricorn by Saturn, Aquarius by Uranus and Saturn, and Pisces by Jupiter and Neptune.
Find the planet that rules your 7th house and take all of the parts of it into account. Look at the sign, the house, and the aspects that it makes to other planets. This will all speak on what you need in a partnership.
Your love potential is NOT as simple as your Sun sign alone. Though it’s a general guideline, it’s never the whole story! Taking a peek at your birth chart (after you know what you’re looking for) is hugely beneficial for shedding light on your entire love nature.
It’s essential to take away that romance is not all that there is to love. Of course, it’s necessary, and it’s the initial reason that you’ll find yourself with someone, but this does not indicate lifelong love by itself. You need to find someone who provides overall compatibility.
Emotional support is hands down the top factor for a loving relationship. That fun and light-hearted aspect plays in too, but never frown on the serious side… this is what keeps you linked to someone for the long haul.
Pay attention to what your placements are telling you. Accept your love nature for what it is and decide to work it! There is someone out there who will tick all the boxes for you. I believe that using Astrology will assist you in knowing just what that person needs to be like.
