In the Zodiac circle, Aquarius is the fixed sign which belongs to the air element. Its traditional ruler is the planet Saturn, and its modern ruler is the planet Uranus. All those basic Astrological principles have a major impact, through the creation and blending of the traits with the unique qualities of the Venus in Aquarius.
Venus in Aquarius is future-oriented and always sees everything through the lenses of the collective, or better to say, public opinion. This planet in this sign is joyous, light-hearted, easy to forget, but passionate to fight for justice and equality. Those traits make them unique in the sense that they dream about the future, and sometimes they are not able to clearly see the present.
This Venus in Aquarius frequently values a genuine friendship over-committed love and easily gets annoyed by the traditional and conservative approaches to love. In general terms, the planet Venus governs appearance, sense of beauty and style, material values, partnerships, and pleasure.
And since Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus, their qualities will blend with her essence. Venus in Aquarius meaning will revolve around socialism or ideas of social equality, and this is why an individual with this placement won’t be so interested to become rich or be with a rich romantic partner.
Partnerships will often look casual, the words and public gestures will be valued more than intimate cuddling or romance. And this is also a sign where a person easily jumps into “friends with benefits” types of arrangements.
Why is Venus in Aquarius so unique?
In one word, Venus in Aquarius is unconventional. Everything about this planet is so exceptional, her choices, looks, views, values… And this trait is basically created by the influences of Saturn and Uranus, as rulers of Aquarius.
In general, the individuals with this placement will be “innovative” or rebellious in their approach to love. Anything traditional or conservative will be so far from their taste, and they will try to catch the attention of the person they are interested in by quirky and funny communication.
Class differences, races, nationalities, and especially religious beliefs won’t have any impact on their style who they choose a partner, and also, friends. The person with an Aquarius Venus will see the whole world as friendly, cooperative, variable, funny, ready to explore and experiment, and anyone else who joins their team will become an ally.
With the same zest as this person will love all sorts of luxurious fusion cousins, the same amount of passion will be given to street foods at some distant corners of the planet. A similar principle can be applied to their personal fashion style which could go from the classical 90s grunge look with old and washed-out T-shirts and jeans, and extend to the ultramodern designer pieces.
In matters of love, true friendship and understanding must be established first. And then… the other planetary aspects will indicate will this connection turn into lasting and faithful love, or will it remain on a level of occasional sexual encounters.
However, the qualities of Venus in Aquarius will depend on the placement of the Sun, mainly. And for someone who has their Sun in Aries or Sagittarius, this Venus won’t be so interested in commitment, but rather adventures until this person matures. For someone who has their Sun in Pisces or Capricorn, this will show that they will have a quiet personality, but fall for the quirky partner every time. And for someone with the Sun and Venus in Aquarius, everything is possible, from heavy sexual experimenting to total isolation at some periods of their lives.
Venus in Aquarius Women
A Venus in Aquarius woman will be attracted to noble, genuine, adventurous, and somewhat different types of guys. Her ideal partner should not look this or the other way because the looks really don’t matter. He must be kind, yet self-aware and communicative. The love will derive from the mind first, not the heart, and therefore, he must be able to talk about some unusual or innovative subjects, and also able and willing to listen to her with a full focus.
Friendship must be established before a romantic relationship, and this is a trait Aquarian Venus is so well-known for. Sudden small gestures, passionate speeches, adventures, or funny times will lead to a kiss, and from that point on, she will easily slip into his arms and his bed, too.
As a sexual partner, the Aquarius Venus woman will surely go with a flow, but in general terms, her style will depend on the position of her natal Mercury. And in this sense, she could perform exceptionally well in technical terms, but not giving her whole heart in. This is the case if her natal Mercury is placed in Capricorn.
The opposite will take place if her Mercury is in Pisces. Then she will love to get lost in sensual touch, have prolonged introductions, and take everything slowly. However, if her natal Mercury is with her Venus in Aquarius, then she will love to experiment with all sorts of toys and partners, and even talk extensively before and during a sexual encounter.
An Aquarius Venus woman’s strengths are her never stopping energy, her zest for life, and her search for justice and variety will put this Venus on a mission to make this world a better place. On the negative side, the Aquarius Venus woman’s weaknesses could sometimes be her ability to talk too much and bore and confuse her partner. She could also act out of the norm during some occasions and causing awkward situations when she is in a couple, and sometimes, she could appear totally detached from her loved one.
Venus in Aquarius Men
When it comes to a man with his natal Venus in Aquarius, it’s not quite how he will behave, but more about his taste in love and pleasures too. He will surely be attracted to unusual women, those who stand outside and yet are fully conscious of their environment and other people.
When younger, this man will fall for a gamer type of girl, or the one who rides a motorcycle with a bunch of her male friends. She could be in technology, or she could have passionate hobbies and activities. When mature, a man with Aquarian Venus in his chart will instantly click when a woman passionately talks or defends her views.
As far as his traits go, he will seduce with his words, always appear funny but radical, and a bit dangerous, which will give him unique charm. He could be on the top of scientific or IT research, and in some cases attach more to his career mission than the woman. Also, his partner must be aware all the time that there are some goals he must accomplish before he can focus on romance.
In sex, this man could be technically dry, which means that the intro will be long, seductive, and filled with his “dirty” plans. He will widely describe what he will do to his partner, but when the proper time comes, all his energy could be already lost through the previous conversation leaving the space only for the short, but powerful performance.
However, his precise style will be seen from the position of his natal Mercury, and then he could be fast and silent when Mercury is in Capricorn; talkative through the sexual act when his Mercury is with Venus in Aquarius; and silent, sensual, and prone to cuddling more if his Mercury is in Pisces.
A Venus in Aquarius man’s strengths are his superior intellectuality and easiness in conversation, even if he doesn’t know much about the subject. Also, he is very relaxed and hard to get scared of, his inner principles give him the base to protect or to rebel, and he is pure-hearted.
However, on another end, he could often act as emotionally detached, too superior to the point of being rude, prideful, aloof, or easily bored. He could also be unfaithful if not interested enough in romance and without much shame when it comes to cheating.

Venus in Aquarius Celebrities
Perhaps is hard to relate the names like Oprah Winfrey and Kate Middleton, but it’s just because both of those extraordinary ladies have some other placements in their charts. Their common denominator is their natal Venus in Aquarius which indicates “another” or better to say, non-traditional type of love.
In the case of Oprah Winfrey, it’s publicly known that she went through some dramatic and truly traumatic experiences in love and sex during her young age. However, she bravely managed to overcome those traumas, and she is in love with one very respectable man for decades now. The interesting detail is that she refused him several times when he proposed, and she keeps this “marriage” outside the official forms.
When it comes to Kate Middleton, she was already in a relationship before she had met Prince William. And even when she became single again, they were just very good friends before their committed relationship began.
Ellen DeGeneres, a famous comedian, and TV host, also has her Venus in Aquarius and was one of the pioneers who admitted her lesbian orientation publically. On the other side, Sharon Stone, an exceptionally beautiful, sexy, and smart actress never could achieve a stable “official” relationship like marriage to last.
And if you look at other celebrity figures like Taylor Swift, Bruce Willis, Kate Moss, Elton John, Jeff Bezos, Ashton Kutcher, Axl Rose, Jared Leto, and many others, including the late Stephen Hawking or Mozart, there will always something be extraordinary when it comes to their love life or talents. And this happens all the time because Venus in Aquarius is a truly innovatively unique placement to have.
Needless to say, is that Venus in Aquarius is just one of the many positions and combinations you can have in your natal chart. And although this placement suggests how you will deal with pleasure, seduction, values, and appearances, only the detailed horoscope analysis will be able to construct your whole character and show where your unique blessings and obstacles are, as well as to predict the incoming events and how to use them for your benefits.
