First and foremost, Venus in Aries is known to be placed to do what it wants, when it wants, without having to answer to anyone. As the planet of love, beauty and money, Venus is extremely impulsive in Aries, allowing this romantic placement to jump in headfirst to any situation without thinking about the future. The only thing that matters to this astrological sign and planet is the here and now. To be honest, there is a certain kind of poetic and adventurous ring to living and loving in the present, without thinking about anything but the person who is standing right in front of you.
When it comes to affairs of the heart, Venus in Aries loves hard and fast. And they’ll always make the first move. They try very hard to make every relationship work — no matter what the writing on the wall says. Most of the time, it can be exhausting watching them take care of those they love. Not only will they spoil their crush or significant other with gifts, they’ll brag about their partner’s accomplishments, too. Once they’re past the point of not being fulfilled in a relationship and really over the situation they’re in with their partner, they’ll move on faster than they originally committed to each other.
The caveat is that Venus in Aries needs to receive affection and appreciation, too. A lot of the time, Venus in Aries can get temperamental that they’re not getting back what they give. Therefore, it’s important for them to understand how to love unconditionally.
Money matters can be erratic and spendthrift for Venus in Aries, who isn’t great at financial planning. As articulated above, Venus in Aries lives in the moment, which translates to lots of purchases that aren’t worth the cost. Keep your receipts during this transit, especially since you'll decide to return an item or two later on. This is a great time to treat yourself to an outfit or shoes that you have been lusting after. Use that passionate vibe to fulfil a longing in your closet that hadn’t been fulfilled until now.
Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, there can be a selfish streak that runs through our veins this time of the year. It’s okay to put your needs first. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. This is the time to love yourself more than anyone else does.
This year, we can expect Venus to transform our lives as it moves through Aries from February 20 to March 16, when it connects with lucky Jupiter on March 2 and the healing centaur Chiron on March 3. If we work hard for it, love can help us grow and heal. These are two magical times that will encourage us to spread our wings and lean into our heartfelt sentiments without looking back and only forward. Commit to your partner on these days, make up with an ex or friend, or go out on a date. The energy will inspire us to give our all towards making relationships work.
