While most of us shake our heads at the mention of star signs and ascendants (let’s not even begin to discuss the retrogrades), behind every gimmick TikTok astrology video lies an intricate system of observing astronomical cycles that is dated back to the third millennium BCE. While astrology can predict almost all aspects of life like career, family, love, it can also give some insight into your sexual compatibility, and before you knock it, perhaps give a read to what the experts say.
In Vedic astrology, analysis of where your Venus and Mars placements are can be vital to gaining insights into an individual’s sexual desires, your compatibility with your partner, and even right down to whether you're a major flirt or not.
So while this all might mean a whole lot of Hocus Pocus to you, perhaps it could spice up your love life, or help you to understand your own sexual desires.
Venus and Mars work as a team. Venus attracts what you want and your Mars goes after it.
If your Venus and Mars are fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), then you’re all about having fun! They are straightforward in their sexual and emotional expression. The key to maintaining strong sexual chemistry with someone who falls under this category is to keep them entertained, keep them laughing and be spontaneous. Aries tend to favor the chase more than the catch. Leos love a partner who affirms their sexual strengths. Sagittariuses love to show their talents in bed because of their fiery and show-off nature.
If your Venus and Mars are earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), then you’re on the slower, more sensual side of the spectrum. When it comes to showing love, anyone whose Venus and Mars are earth signs will consider sex to be a basic need of theirs, and love is almost instinctual. Taurus placements have a simple, direct approach to sex, and see it as a natural extension of themselves. Virgos are notoriously known for being planners, so it’s easy to assume that they expect routine in the bedroom as well. Capricorns tend to think outside of the box when it comes to their sex life, and can be counted on to try new things.
If your Venus and Mars are air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), then you’re definitely slower to show your passion, and might require some more mental stimulation. That’s not to say that air signs are boring lovers, in fact, of all the signs they might be most inclined to experiment. Gemini placements are adventurous and have a tendency to encourage their partners to try new things with them. Libras, being of the most balanced nature of the zodiac, like to keep the scales even, and are very attentive to their partners' needs. Aquarians tend to be more open to modern displays of sensuality, whether it's through sexting or video chatting.
If your Venus and Mars are water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), then you are very apt at tapping into your lovers’ sexual and emotional needs. As well, these placements are intuitive and make you feel emotionally close to them. Cancers are ruled by the moon and therefore their needs change frequently. Scorpions are obsessed with breaking taboos and never bowing to sexual restrictions. Pisces are one of the most responsive placements, who love to become completely whole with their partner.
