Speed Dating

Apparently “Speed Dating” was invented by Rabi Yaacov Deyo so that Jewish couples could meet en masse to find a marriage partner.

The planet Venus in Aries is representitive of the zodiac’s fast dating service and while Venus is in the sign of Aries for another five months – a good tip for speed daters could be summed up with the Aries saying  “What you see is what you get”.



Speedy Venusing

“Supporters argue that speed dating saves time, as most people decide if they are romantically compatible very quickly and first impressions are often permanent.”

Venus in Aries is indicative of spontaneous affections. Venus is quick off the mark to express charm and sexuality in the course of romantic potential.



What you see is what you get

According to Jung – Animus is the archetype in a woman that represents her male alter ego. In natal chart delineation – Venus in Aries can be different for male and females. Venus in Aries for a female chart tends to filter down her feminine side while her testosterone levels seem to increase. In her younger years the Venus in Aries woman would have most likely had little impulse control in romance. The same could be said about a woman with Moon in Aries. “I need – quickly”.  It is quite common for women receiving HRT to become quite horny as a result of increased testosterone in her chemistry. Perhaps Venus in the Cardinal and Yin (Male) sign of Aries for women – describes her affections as strong – direct – spontaneous and open.

Do the participants in speed dating really depend on first impressions to make decisions on dating?  Most relationships develop on the basis of  “what one doesnt know” about the other person. In fact some men with Venus in Aries may be turned off women who reveal all about her personality. The man with Venus in Aries also wants fast affections however he needs an element of mystery wrapped up in the challenge of his romance.

The male with Venus in Aries has more Yin in his Yang and often needs to balance his feminine side especially if he has no other planets in feminine signs.

Aries is about “me” and the planet Venus is largely about “us” so when Venus is in Aries our attachments and affections tend to be self interested ones.



The Eager Male

I haven’t tried speed dating yet however it seems that one would need to be able to “read” non verbal communications (body language) for first impressions to work effectively. One would need natural or developed skills of perception in speed dating meetings.

While Venus is in Aries over the next few months it seems that relationships can develop elements of self interest. Open and impulsive relationships involving independence seem to be the order of the day. While Venus is in Aries – I can see the benefits of speed dating for couples who are “looking to get what they see” or for busy – ambitious professional people looking for relationships.

    Hi K.

    I am happily shackled – I mean, married; but were I to be free to meet someone, I can’t imagine ever submitting myself to speed-dating. I think I’m too shy a show-off for that… and the continuous rejection would make my lip wobble 🙂

    Yes, there is always the risk of rejection. That is one factor that would stop many people from speed dating. It seems to have a competitive process. Maybe not?

    I am not shacked up and I dont like the idea either Colin

    Oh K, being shackled… we get used to it.

    I don’t think i’d speed date either.

    We do live in a fast moving world. You gotta be in it to win it, they say.

    Actually, Graffiti makes a good point – at least rejection would be over and done with at speed!

    I don’t understand. I thought that speed dating was to meet people. What’s rejection got to do with it?

    I’m probably having one of my dark blonde moments but how can you be rejected from meeting people?

    Ohh… it’s a date. Yeah – i don’t understand it i guess. *Shrugs*

    If a shark bites you quickly does that lessen the pain?

    Yes, it does make sense that a fast rejection is a good rejection. One has not had enough time to develop much of an attachment with the other person anyway. Why would it matter unless the speed dater is sensitive and has great expectations.
