    i noticed there is a lot taurus already noted down.
    but one that i still miss is Venus in Taurus, with Mars in Aquarius!

    There is not much written about aquarius yest either, mars nor venus as there isn’t either for gemini. Can’t wait to read more about that!

    I would love to see Venus in Gemini and Mars in Cancer

    I love how you described how venus in virgo expresses her love, i am virgo rising and recognize it somehow.

    So if someone falls in love, it is your venus mostly that gets activated?
    When i look at myself, i am a gemini, but when i fall in love i act completely different then when i meet new friends.
    I get sort of possesive, in a way i seldom get with friends, i feel like i want to see the one i am in love with, cant wait til the time is there, i don’t have that with my friends, i just, it just goes the way it goes. I have a hard time letting go when it comes to love.
    I also have mars in cancer, changes my gemini attitude as well i guess.

  6. Myself, being a mars in leo, I have met a venus in aries and we are perfect for each other but we are always playing the mind games with each other to see who has the upper hand. If i get close, she pulls away, when i am distant she is she seems interested. I am so confused as to what i should do.

    Hi, I’m a Scorpio Sun / Aries Moon with Venus in Virgo and Mars in Leo.

    I’m bisexual and the girl I’m crushing on is a Pisces Sun / Sagittarius Moon with Venus in Aries and Mars in Cancer.

    I understand why you compare the woman’s Venus sign with the man’s Mars sign in heterosexual relationships, but what am I supposed to compare for a homosexual relationship?

    Thanks! (:

  8. I’m

    Aries Sun
    Capricorn Moon
    Aries Venus
    Virgo Mars

    currently crushing on someone who is

    Aries Sun
    Sagittarius Moon
    Aquarius Venus
    Leo Mars.

    It’s quite interesting how effortlessly we get along.
