The Unconventional Lover with Venus in Aquarius
When Venus transits Aquarius, love, and relationships take on a “different” energy. While in Capricorn, Venus was serious, deeply committed, and focused on tradition. Now that Venus has moved on to the sign of Aquarius, it is time to consider love from a unique angle. Aquarius is the one sign that does not care about tradition. It seeks that which can free it from limitations. In the venus placement, you can expect to be confronted with seeking freedom in relationships, bucking the status quo by choosing different types of relationships, and a desire to have relationships that are often like friendships. Venus in Aquarius is the unconventional lover that prefers partnerships that expand the mental capacity, so people that are not able to satisfy the mental plane need not apply.
Finally, freedom is important to Aquarius. During the Venus in Aquarius transit, it is important to make space for partners to be their own personal. This desire for independence does not mean that there is a lack of love. Aquarius is one of the few signs that have the ability to love freely without jealousy and all the other hang-ups that come with some love relationships. Also, taking time to explore partners in unconventional ways is important to keep the relationship lively and interesting. Venus in Aquarius is seeking what is unique. Thus, during this transit, don’t be afraid to let your freak flag fly. This transit will teach us that it is more than possible to be loved for the things that make us stand out from the crowd.
