It's impossible to ignore our yearnings when Venus unites with the fiery sign of Aries! Venus is the planet of love, money, beauty, and desire, and when she moves through independent Aries, we're reminded that our own needs matter, and it's up to us to make sure they get met.
Many astrologers consider Venus in Aries to be a difficult placement because Venus’ calm, soft sweetness just doesn’t align with the rambunctious and self-focused style of Aries. While Venus normally thrives on cooperation and two-way partnerships, her placement in Aries triggers a time to practice self-love. It’s about putting yourself first, trying new things, and discovering what will satisfy you most. After all, it’s only when you understand, love, and embrace yourself that you draw the best things into your life -- and that’s what Venus in Aries is all about.

When Venus is in Aries
When Venus moves through Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, it offers us all a chance to make a fresh start in matters of love, money, and self-awareness. Old patterns and lackluster relationships have no place anymore once Venus enters Aries. Instead, we thrive on new experiences and adventurous encounters, and we’re more spontaneous in our pursuit of pleasure.
Aries is a highly independent sign that is largely focused on itself and its own interests. Therefore, love and relationships can sometimes seem selfish or imbalanced during Venus’ transit through Aries. But for the single lover, this can be an amazing time to identify your own needs and explore your options -- Venus in Aries ignites a courageous fire under us that makes us more confident and assertive when meeting and interacting with others. And for those in relationships, exploring each other’s personal desires and experiencing new things together is a surefire way to reignite the fire between you. So while it seems like there’s a very self-centered air to Venus in Aries, it’s really about enhancing your love life by way of yourself.
In terms of money, Venus in Aries is a time to invest in yourself -- not on major purchases or long-term investments, but with exciting things that boost your confidence and your zest for life. A new outfit, hairstyle, or an active weekend getaway will revitalize you and add to your fulfillment. Beware though, we want instant gratification under Venus in Aries, and you could go overboard on your spending without considering the consequences.
Overall Venus in Aries isn’t a time to fall deeply in love or make long-term commitments. Think of it more like a test phase where you get to taste different flavors before you settle on just one. It’s about living in the moment, without fear from the past or concern for the future. It’s a time to go after what you desire, and not settle for anything less.
If you were born with Venus in Aries
If you were born while the planet of love, money, and desire was in the fiery sign of Aries, you are an independent spirit who knows what they want. You are confident, direct, and have no problem making the first move. Your desires burn hot and it’s hard for you to remain patient or wait around for things to come to you.
You’ve never been one to shy away from new things. You crave excitement and the thrill of the unknown. When a relationship or situation becomes worn-out or boring, it’s easy for you to cut loose and move on to your next conquest. But while your "my way or the highway" attitude in relationships ensures you’ll be satisfied in the end, you could leave a number of jilted lovers in your wake...
People born under Venus in Aries are often magnetic and lively individuals who easily catch the attention of others. You love the chase, and often find yourself being desired or pursued by more than one person at a time.
When it comes to money, you’re likely to spend first and figure out how to make ends meet later. Your impulsive nature and need for instant gratification make it hard to save or plan for your future. Money burns a hole in your pocket, and instead of budgeting for necessary items, you’d rather splurge on an adventure or experience that will give you memories for a lifetime.
You know that you can have all you desire in life, and with your personal brand of confidence, charm, and self-awareness, you truly can.
