Once they know they have completely conquered a lover, they lose interest, as they begin to take him/her for granted. Love is a contest with these people. They what you to make the first move, but don't do this. Let them make the first move, of which they will if they have any serious interest in you. They have a need for upsets in love, especially if Venus is in hard aspect to Mars. When things run smooth, they lose interest, so they start arguments and can do other things to shake up the relationship. They enjoy seeing their partners get jealous, but they themselves cannot handle jealousy. They can seriously overreact.

Those with Venus in Aries are selfish lovers. They are often concerned only with their own pleasure. Putting your arm around their neck, messing up their hair, kissing them on the ears and neck, running your finger across their lips; these moves turn them on. Some Venus in Aries women like their men with razor stubble, rubbing against their faces when kissing them. Some enjoy rough sex. Give it right back to them. Stand up to them.

A lover/ partner can be physically unattractive, but he/she will be beautiful to the person with Venus in Libra. The men like their women to act like a perfect lady. The strong independent type of woman who is completely self-sufficient is a turn off to them. Both sexes take pride in their personal appearance and will go to great lengths to look good.

These people can become violent and vindictive if a relationship is broken off, so use caution in this area. Don't ever joke with or toy with their jealous natures, as they can become explosive and violent. Venus in Scorpio is obsessive, especially in love. Their jealousy can be very dangerous, even deadly. They may successfully hide their jealousy, especially with a twelfth house Mars or Mars retrograde, but it is always there. If there is a predominance of water signs, Pluto/Venus aspects or a strong Scorpio emphasis in the chart, no amount of love is enough love for these people. Like the saying goes..."If you could get any'd be in back of me." "I love you to death."

Sex out of doors can be a thrilling experience and a turn on for them. Their personal freedom is important to them. They dislike possessiveness and displays of jealousy.

They are not very quick to make a commitment.

They may appear to be uninterested, but chances are that they are really very shy. Capricorn is the sign of endurance and most of the men have tremendous staying power.

These people are not especially passionate, as Aquarius is an intellectual air sign. They prefer to be cool. They get bored easily so try to be spontaneous. They like spur of the moment romance and the unexpected. Sex in public places where there is risk of being caught appeals to many of these people. They enjoy pairing up with someone from an entirely different background/status/religion, etc., as long as this person is entirely different, individual, and original. Venus in Aquarius could care less what others think. They enjoy shocking others.

Never try to dominate or control these people, as they need lots of space and personal freedom in a love relationship. Be a friend to them as well as a lover.
