How Your Venus Signs Affect Your Compatibility
Compatibility, which means two or more individuals are able to coexist without
problems or conflict , is essential in any meaningful relationship. This is true
regardless of whether the relationship in question is one of a romantic, platonic, or
professional nature. While you can use your astrological signs to determine your
compatibility with just about any person, your sun may not be best in determining with
whom you're most romantically compatible. That's where your Venus sign comes in.
