Why Others Find You Hot Based on Your Venus Sign

Venus has just moved into Libra, one of the two signs she rules over, so to celebrate this lovely romantic shift let’s take a little look at how our Venus signs affect how people see us and what they find hottest about us – oooh!

For this, you might need to check what sign your Venus is in, rather than your Sun sign. You can do that very easily here – just enter your birth details, scroll down to the chart, find Venus, and off you go!

Venus in Aries

 
You’re passionate about life and love trying new things – trips to a theme park, go-kart racing or to try the latest ice cream parlour that’s opened up in town – hanging out with you is always a fun and energetic experience, if sometimes a little competitive, making you someone that plenty of people want to date long-term!

However, not everyone can keep up! Most of your enthusiasm tends to go into the chase of new romance, and once you’ve got it you can lose interest, which only makes them want you more! The special someone who eventually wins your heart will have to be just as exciting, active and full of life as you, but when they do win you over, they’ll find that you’re actually a big romantic softie at heart and you’ve just been waiting for the right person to dedicate your generous and passionate heart to.

 

Venus in Taurus

 
Appearances mean a lot to Venus in Taurus – their own and the people they’re dating, so if your Venus is here, you likely take great pride in your presentation and expect others to do the same – no scruffiness welcome here! You carry yourself with poise and grace, and this, coupled with your natural attractiveness, no doubt wins you many admirers!

But it’s not all surface level stuff with Venus in Taurus, and those who stick around long enough to see beyond the impeccable style and sweet persona will find a dependable and loyal companion capable of huge generosity, an indulgent nature when it comes to food, drink and affection, plus plenty of sensuality behind closed doors!
 

Venus in Gemini

 
Talking to a Venus in Gemini is always an interesting affair! You’re a keen learner and you absorb information like a sponge, ready to retell it in fascinating and inspiring ways, and you’re also a master flirt, making you the life and soul of a party. People are attracted to your intelligence and wit, and you have a fun and light-hearted approach to the world, making you a charming and lively date – there’s never an awkward pause with you!

Underneath this bubbly and bright demeanour is someone who is really seeking love, but just very good at hiding it under a cheery and carefree persona, but the lucky person that manages to hold a Venus in Gemini’s attentions for long enough will find a sweet-natured and loyal soul who will always be at their side cheering them on with a smile and a motivational quote or two!
 

Venus in Cancer

 
At first you may seem a little shy, taking a while to come out of your shell and get to know someone, yet you know yourself ever so well. This gives you a confident yet quiet poise that select people will think is just fascinating. Female Venus in Cancers tend to have a very feminine ‘girl next door’ quality that masculine types will desire to take care of, and male Venus in Cancers are often your typical nice guy, attracting other well-meaning people who want a traditional fairy-tale love story.

When in love, you’ll happily give your all to someone and will support and nurture them so they feel the safety that you also yearn for. Since you’re so intuitive, your gentle demeanour can confuse those who think they can take advantage – but you can smell someone messing with you a mile off! While your sense of self-protection is strong, beneath your shell you’re a warm-hearted and sensitive soul with a desire to look after those you love and a fantastic sense of humour too!
 

Venus in Leo

 
You want to be wined and dined, brought flowers and told you’re beautiful, and why shouldn’t you? You are beautiful indeed! You take care of your appearance, are confident in yourself, and no doubt have an admirable mane of hair that you take great pride in. While you expect lavish acts of romance and chivalry, you’re more than happy to return the favour and love planning surprises, vacations or extravagant gifts that your loved one can’t help but be excited by.
 
loveheart locks
 
Once you’ve been suitably pinned down by a suitor, you like things done your way, but you do it with a kind heart and your loyalty is perhaps the strongest of all signs. You’ll go to the ends of the earth for the one you love and do it with an abundance of affection – so long as they play their part too!
 

Venus in Virgo

 
You take great care of yourself, in body mind and spirit, and because of that you know yourself very well and are a great conversationalist. Even shy Venus in Virgos tend to know more about the world than they let on, and the whole “Virgin” association with this sign is less to do with naivety, and more to do with your modest demeanour and easy approach to the truth, in all its forms. Because of this, you tend to attract those who’ve been hurt before and need someone to trust – in you they will find exactly that.

While a Venus in Virgo is cautious to give their heart away, when they do, it will be with huge dedication and devotion to their partner. You can be sweet or strong, active or passive, thinking and feeling – whenever the need arises, making you an irresistible paradox with far more personal power than you let on.
 

Venus in Libra

 
You have impeccable manners and are well-liked by most – you’re the kind that can be confidently shown off to the parents and win over everyone with your wit and charm. You take a lot of care in your appearance and even if you don’t consider yourself conventionally beautiful you tend to attract many potential lovers who find you incredibly alluring.

Underneath this near-on perfect exterior is someone who values fairness and equality above all, and you expect your partner to be the same. This love of harmony extends to your aesthetic nature and you are likely to have an artistic streak, enjoying the finer things in life, whether that be a dinner and dancing or watching the sun set over an ocean scene. This makes you an interesting, fair and communicative partner who will always try to bring beauty and grace to their relationships.
 

Venus in Scorpio

 
Many of us will know the stereotypical badboy/badgirl that Venus in Scorpio is known for, but you’re not all mystery and sex appeal, as your lovers know all too well. Beneath the attitude and charm or disarming sense of humour lives someone who is deeper than most, with an emotional well that runs far beyond what it appears at the surface.

No matter what the aesthetics, if you’re a Venus in Scorpio, you need to be able to trust someone, and once you do, they’re yours forever. This may come as a surprise to some of your past suitors, who no doubt still pine for your romantic intensity and sizzling personal power, but there’s only one person out there for you, and you don’t give your heart easily!
 

Venus in Sagittarius

 
Your fun-loving, carefree and adventurous nature means that regardless of looks, many people are attracted to you, and you’re happy to meet all of them, though not all of them will win your affections long-term. You’re a natural storyteller and can captivate those around you with endless stories, jokes and opinions, but once the evening is over, you’re happy to return to your own comfort zone without the need to oblige anyone too long.

You’re not an easy one to pin down, and often Venus in Sag will marry or partner up later in life, as they have so much to do and see first! However, when you do, you’ll become their best friend as well as their lover and bring a cheery joy to that person’s life, making up for your occasional lack of direction with a warmth that most would delight in.
 

Venus in Capricorn

 
You think things through very carefully: in your impeccable dress sense, charming demeanour and the types of people you go for. You like your loves to be in control of their own lives, someone who is dependable – this to you spells stability, which is what you desire most in your relationships. Because of this, you can sometimes start off a little aloof, but once you know that person is worth it, you’ll climb mountains to be with them and show them that you adore them. These high standards will surely have people trying to prove that they’re worthy of your attentions.

A Venus in Capricorn gives out a mature air when it comes to romance, as in, you seem to know what you’re doing, and this can make people feel protected and attracted to your confidence, or better yet, it can win you a partner of equal emotional strength. When in love, you are happy to give all you’ve got and will always work at a relationship and commit tremendous loyalty and dedication.
 

Venus in Aquarius

 
A Venus in Aquarius may start off as your friend, then build up to a relationship. If this is you, you like to know a person before you give your heart to them, if only to make sure that you’re truly compatible past the romance and fireworks stage. Connecting intellectually is important to you and you’re a quirky, innovative and progressive thinker with many fascinating and creative ideas that others will love to engage with.

While you may seem a little cool at first, and you fiercely value your independence, when in love, you’ll often find creative and exciting ways to show your beloved how awesome you think they are, and while you’re sometimes a little put off by overly emotional types, you love far more than you let on and there’s never a dull moment when you’re around!
 

Venus in Pisces

 
Venus in Pisces is ethereal and empathetic, giving support to those who need it and offering caring and understanding shelter, making everyone feel comfortable and nurtured around you. You may seem a little shy at first, but you have an air of kindness about you that attracts people who perhaps need a little guidance, and you’re all too happy to give it. Your romantic, sensitive and idealistic way helps you to connect spiritually with those around you, attracting other spiritually-minded people to you.

When you love, you love unconditionally, and perhaps sometimes to your detriment, people may take advantage of this. You are easily hurt, but would never hurt others, making you a loyal and sensitive partner that would give the world to see those around them happy. You yearn for a fairy-tale happy ending and many would be lucky to receive your giving and eternal love.

10 Top Tips for Mercury Retrograde

mercury retrograde mercury - infographic image presents one of the solar system planet, look and facts.
 
It’s that time of year again – Mercury Retrograde! From July 26th to August 19th, the planet of thought and communication will be creating a standstill. But before you panic, Mercury Retrograde is not necessarily a bad thing, despite what a lot of stuff online may say, but rather, this can be a great time to focus in on what’s not serving us anymore, with the help of some top tips of course!

Look to the Past

 
Technically, what’s happening when we have a retrograde, is that the planet in question (Mercury in this case) looks as if it’s moving backwards across the sky. Traditionally, this would have spelled confusion and “backwards” thinking. However, it’s actually a really good time to look backwards in our own lives, to take stock of where we’ve been, so we can better plan where we’re going.

Take it Slow

 
It pays to slow things down during Mercury Retrograde, not because everything will go wrong if you don’t, but because that way you’ll have chance to notice all the little signs that are desperately trying to show you the way!

Think First

 
Traditionally, Mercury Retrograde is a time when thought and communication can go a bit topsy turvy, so make sure you really think before opening your mouth or making any big decisions. This doesn’t mean you can’t do anything, just be aware that you might change your mind soon after, so think everything through properly before doing or saying anything drastic!

Don’t take it Personally

 
The same goes for information that you receive from others. If you find yourself on the receiving end of negativity or nitpicking, just assume it’s misdirected and don’t take it personally. The retrograde can actually be a good time to learn about how to thicken your skin and not let your mood or self-worth be dictated by others. Only you get to decide how you feel.

Look Up your Horoscope

 
Mercury Retrograde affects everyone slightly differently, for example, if you’re a Virgo or a Gemini, you’ll probably have a more intense experience as Mercury is your ruling planet. Check out my weekly horoscopes for more tailored advice or give one of our advisors a call for extra precise info.

Write it down

 
One way of sorting through potentially confusing thoughts and feelings is to write it all down! Journal it all out and see what comes up for you. Or in the case of overwhelm, create lists so your brain isn’t doing all the work for you.

Focus on the RE- words

 
Retrograde always reminds me of re- words (RE-trograde – get it?) so focus on words like: reassess, review, rehearse, redo, reinterpret, reveal, revive, recover, repeat, revamp, reawaken, reassure, recharge, reconnect, reincarnate, rekindle. Where can you apply them to your life?

Read the Fine Print

 
Mercury is very detail orientated so anything retrograde related will be in the small things. This goes for anything official – make sure you’re really clued up as to what you’re doing, as well as for life in general. Keep an eye out for small signs that will point you in the right direction.

Organise and Declutter

 
Since Mercury is all about the details, it’s time to get real on which of your own details need a bit of a clean-up. Do you need to do some off-season spring cleaning? Has some project sat collecting dust? Do your files need filing and your to-do list tackling? If so, get on it now, you’ll feel so much better for it afterwards!

Open Your Mind

 
As with all astrological transits, it really does pay to be intuitive, and by that, I mean keep an open mind, pay attention to what’s around you and go into everything you do trusting that you’re always on the right path.

So, it’s not all bad! There’s plenty of opportunity here for productivity and progress, you just have to get into the zone and make the most of a potentially confusing time – if you do, you’ll be well on your way to epic planetary transformations, rather than hiding at home because of the big bad retrograde!

How to Make the Most of the Summer Solstice!

ellie rose astrologer smiling in rishikesh india
 
This Summer Solstice is on June 21st, the time when the Sun is at its peak. For thousands of years people have worshipped this astrological event, but in a modern world it’s not easy to get to Stonehenge or even find a bonfire to dance around! So here are some small things you can do to mark the occasion and bring in some sunshine to your life.
 

First, what is the Summer Solstice?

 
Summer Solstice, or “Midsummer”, is the time when the days are longest, and the sun is at its highest peak in the sky. We’re at the halfway point of the year and after this, the Sun will start to lower, and the days will become shorter. This is a time of celebration and joy, a time to worship the light and fill yourself up ready to welcome in the harvest and the dark time of year.

Organise Your Thoughts

 
Since we’re halfway through the year, it’s a really good time to write about how far you’ve come and where you’d like to go next. Think of it as a breather before we enter the second half of the year. What goals would you like to accomplish? What are you proud of having achieved so far? Set a timer if it helps and don’t stop to edit, just get all your thoughts down on paper so you’re ready to move forwards.

Collect Plants

 
The days surrounding Summer Solstice have always been known as a good time to collect plants for medicinal or magical use and it’s been said that they will have extra potent powers if collected at this time of year. If you have some nature nearby, why not organise a trip to see what you can find? Wild lavender, mint, garlic, blackcurrants and dandelion can be cooked, put in tea or used in rituals and spells for extra healthy benefits.

Have a Dinner Party

 
Solstices are a traditional time of celebration and what better way to celebrate than with a big slap up meal with all your friends and family? Serve foods like honey, fresh fish, strawberries and cream – anything summery and indulgent that makes everyone feel filled up and happy. Perhaps get the Pimms out and toast to the summer Sun?

Take a Walk

 
Since growth is at its peak right now, this is a great time to take a walk and enjoy some of Mother Nature’s gifts. Get out there and enjoy everything summer has to offer, before long it will be harvest time and the plants will start to return to the earth, so take the opportunity while you can.

Dance

 
In Celtic times, the pagan people would light a bonfire to dance around, now nobody’s saying you need a bonfire to do this, but just dancing around your living room, or even better, your garden, will bring in powerful and positive energies for you to take with you into the second half of the year.

Practice Gratitude

 
Everything around you exists because of the earth providing it to you, so most importantly out of everything at this time of year, we should say thank you. In whatever way you feel comfortable, thank the earth for providing you with shelter, food and light to keep you warm. Write, light a candle, say a prayer, give something back, whatever feels right to you and helps you to remember how beautiful life can be!

So, Happy Solstice, stargazers! I hope you have a wonderful time and remember that Summer is a time to enjoy – so get out there and enjoy it!

Much Love!
