3. Determine What Each Planet Brings to the Relationship

Next, you will determine what each planet brings to the relationship and how these connections will resonate with those of your partner and be reciprocated by them.

The Luminaries and Personal Planets

Psychologically, the luminaries and the personal planets represent different spheres of your personality. The astrological signs they are in describe how you function, how you feel, what you want, and how you behave. The planets are the primary actors and archetypes of personality, but it’s the zodiac signs in which the planets fall that give them a distinctive, recognizable character. Without the zodiac signs, the planets would have little astrological significance for the individual.

Venus and Mars Compatibility

Venus and Mars are the planets most associated with love (Venus) and sex (Mars). They are the motivating factors that draw you into intimate relationships. Their sign placements describe what love and sex mean to you. Together they explain how you attract and actively seek out truly intimate and life-enhancing relationships.

  • Your Venus sign encompasses everything that delights you and gives you joy and pleasure. It defines what and who you love, the value you put on a person or thing, and what you are prepared to give. The sign of your partner’s Venus will tell you, more precisely than their Sun, Moon, or Ascendant sign, what they are looking for in a relationship.
