The Astrological Reason Every Zodiac Sign Will Put Themselves First This Month

Venus is the planet of sugar, spice, and everything nice — and she's got a few tricks up her sleeve for all of us this month. Venus entered Aries on Feb, 7, and she'll sail through this fire sign's territory through Mar. 4. Venus is naturally gentle and poised, but Aries is impulsive and energized, which is bringing a wild vibe to all the Venus-ruled areas of our lives. How Venus in Aries 2020 will affect your zodiac sign all depends on how this planet is hitting your chart, so we won't all experience the effects in the same way.

Venus is probably best known for being the planet of love and romance, but its reign actually extends far beyond that. More broadly, Venus governs over what and how we value — it shows us what brings us pleasure, gets us feeling romantic, and makes us feel luxurious (which means that yes, Venus rules money, too!). It also rules over aesthetics, so Venus' placement in the zodiac affects what we find beautiful.

"Positioned in the cardinal, fiery sign of Aries, the planet of sex and pleasure becomes bold, direct, impulsive, and all about the thrill of the chase," says Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer at and We're all taking on a more "me first" attitude when it comes to money, pleasure, and the way we love. We're also likely to feel more competitive in these areas, and make more spontaneous decisions.

So how will this bold and passionate Venus placement affect your life for the coming month? Read on to find out.
