The Sun/Venus Personality
Sun/Venus people have a string of positive adjectives attached to them: optimistic, charming, generous, attractive, romantic, charming. Did I mention charming? These people don’t just want to be liked; it’s their mission. They know how to flirt, work a room, and take center stage. But they’re never crass or pushy. Venus’ energy of social acceptability ensures that they don’t rub anyone the wrong way.
If you want to get close to a Sun/Venus person, be prepared to demonstrate that you’re into them. Really into them. Compliments are an aphrodisiac. They won’t chase you, because they’re not interested in a challenge. The Sun boosts Venus’ self-esteem and their sense of entitlement. You come to them.
Sun/Venus in Relationships
In a relationship, Sun/Venus is the ultimate romantic. They are also incredibly generous, loving, and positive. But the downside to all this sweetness is their tendency to sugar coat problems. If you and your Sun/Venus partner are experiencing tension, they’d rather will it away with a stream of sunshine and champagne. If they don’t focus on it, it doesn’t exist.
And remember that sense of entitlement? It won’t go away once they’re involved with you. You’ll have to keep the relationship grounded by attending to the mundane details (they can’t be bothered). And that includes a constant infusion of compliments and adoration to feed the Sun/Venus person’s ego.
Sun/Venus in Sign Variations
Sun/Venus energy will be colored by the sign these planets are in. Someone with Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio will express their love (and desire to be loved) with a powerful, possessive intensity. They won’t just expect you to want them, they’ll demand it. Sun/Venus in Libra may flirt non-stop, even once they’re partnered up. This will have nothing to do with their relationship; they’re simply wired to constantly engage with others and reaffirm their attractiveness. Sun/Venus in Sagittarius will take romantic playfulness to a new level; this combination can create a lover who never grows up. Sun conjunct Venus in Capricorn can be fixated on status, and will settle for nothing less than a partner who can provide this.
But overall, Sun conjunct Venus is a treat to have in the natal chart. Despite the shadow aspects, these people will provide a non-stop boost of love and optimism to their relationships. And those are essential ingredients for keeping a partnership afloat.
