It’s not so much vive la difference with you – but the more unusual the better. With Venus in Aquarius you are very much the individual and you’re looking for that equally one-off lover to compliment you. Chances are you showcase your uniqueness in the way you look and dress and you may well see yourself and your image as a work of art – even if it defies the trend. In fact – the trend? Except for technology you usually buck that as you have your own style – or are setting it. Aquarius is the 11th house of the zodiac which rules friends, groups, contacts, our place in and connection to the collective and our goals, wishes and dreams. It is ruled by the revolutionary planet Uranus who amongst other things rules the eccentric, the maverick and the innovative – all of which are romantic catnip to you. You are an original and you want someone unique. You love freedom, independence, revolutionary ideas, people who question the system, the radical, shocking boring people, future thinking and anything ‘New Age’. Hates? Recycling old ideas, pointless traditions, suburban thinking, routine, boredom and getting stuck in a rut.
What can go wrong? Well, while you shouldn’t give up your beliefs they can make you dogmatic and as you actually enjoy being alone this can lead to ivory tower syndrome where you are content t remain because nobody quite measures up to your standards. In other words – you’re Princess Fiona waiting for Charming and unable to see Shrek is actually your better option. Your desire to shock can also work against you. Yes, I understand you are not interested in Mr. or Ms. 9-to-5. But your search for a fellow rebel can lead you into broken heart territory when that revolutionary partner turns out just not to care about you – or anything else for that matter. And picking unsuitable partners to upset the middle-class family apple cart (or barbeque) you’re still rebelling against isn’t a good look once you get into your 30’s.
So, where are the other Children of the Revolution that can actually lead to the love evolution you crave? Because you are seeking someone different but complimentary, this is another Venus placement which can bring in a much older or younger partner. Or they come from a very different culture, country or upbringing to you. However, you will have certain things in common and this is your key to meeting them. Look at what you love to do. It’s quite probably a unique list of interests. So, get out and meet others doing the same. Uranus rules technology and the internet and its not just dating sites but forums and gaming sites which may provide you will that special contact. However, your local computer or phone store could prove the equivalent of a singles bar in your case, technology and gaming shows, E3, sci-fi conventions, Comic Con or your local comic store – all fertile ground. As you are an idealist this is another area where you can connect with someone on the same wavelength – look to humanitarian and political groups with a different agenda. You may not change the planet but you could change your world which is pretty much the same thing at the end of the day.
So, your Venus in Aquarius match could be found revolutionising the world by being:
A computer game designer
Working in a humanitarian organisation
Working in a computer or phone store
A comic book artist or comic store owner
A telephone engineer
A computer programmer
A CGI animator
A fashion designer with a unique style
A modern artist
A magician or illusionist
A trade unionist
A visionary (think Steve Jobs)
Remember, if love has been elusive – be open-minded. That is what these Venus dating guides are all about. There is no need to sign up for an activity if it really doesn’t appeal to you. However, if you find yourself at a venue or attending something in your list or which brings you into contact with the themes or people I have mentioned, then be on high alert – love could be found where you least expect it!
