The Sun conjunct Venus in synastry is an extremely positive aspect. It generally promotes good feelings between people.
The Sun represents our ego and identity on a very deep level.
Venus is the main planet that governs relationships. It also determines what we like and who we are attracted to.
A conjunction occurs when two planets are in the same place in the zodiac. In synastry, it represents what two people have in common.
Sun Conjunct Venus in Synastry
When the Sun is conjunct Venus in synastry, it means that it is easy for two people to be around each other. At a basic level, they like each other.
This is an aspect that can cause love at first sight. It can also aid in creating a lasting and loving long-term relationship.
On the other hand, it can also create a situation that is much more one-sided. In some cases, the person whose Venus is involved will have stronger feelings than the person whose Sun is involved. Much will depend on the other synastry aspects between them.
Venus can never be more than 45 degrees from the Sun in an individual's birth chart, and Mercury can never be more than 28 degrees from the Sun. For this reason, there is a good likelihood there will also be a conjunction between Venus and Venus or between Mercury and Venus.
Either of these aspects will strengthen the positive connections between the two people involved.
There is also a good likelihood that the two will have their Sun in adjacent signs. When this is the case, most Sun Sign compatibility articles will say that the two are incompatible. If one person's Sun is conjunct the other's Venus, however, this will make them compatible.
There are a couple of sign combinations that modify the meaning of this aspect.
Sun conjunct Venus in Aries
If it occurs in Aries, the Sun is strong and Venus is weak. This is the case in which it is most likely that the connection is one-sided.
Venus in Aries has a tendency to fall for people who are not interested or available and that could be someone whose Sun is in Aries.
Sun conjunct Venus in Libra
If it occurs in Libra, Venus will be strong and the Sun will be weak. This relationship can be quite positive for the person whose Sun is in Libra.
The person whose Venus is in Libra can help them communicate and find expression for their diplomatic nature.
The nature of this relationship will be further modified by the house that the Sun and Venus fall in each other's charts.

Man's Sun Conjunct Woman's Venus Relationship
In most cases, a relationship in which a man's Sun is conjunct a woman's Venus will follow traditional gender roles.
She will tend to be supportive of his work and will want him to shine.
He will enjoy her company, but it is very likely that she will put more effort into the relationship than he does.
It will be important for him to show appreciation to her and not to take her for granted if the relationship is not to sour.
Otherwise, this is a great combination and can lead to a happy and stable long-term relationship provided the other synastry aspects are favorable.
Woman's Sun Conjunct Man's Venus Relationship
In this case, it is the man who is more focused on the relationship than the woman. He will adore her and do anything for her.
There may be a bit of a role-reversal in this relationship. For example, he may play a supportive role for her in terms of her career or public standing.
Just as in the case as when the genders are reversed, it will be important for her to appreciate him and his support.
Still, this is a very good aspect to have, especially if the other synastry aspects are favorable.
Sun Conjunct Venus in Friendship
The Sun conjunct Venus is generally a positive aspect to have in friendship. The two will enjoy being together, and there will be good feelings between them.
This aspect is better if the gender and sexual orientation of the friends prevent any possibility of a romantic relationship between them.
If there is the possibility of a romantic relationship by gender and sexual orientation, this aspect could become complicated.
It may be that one of the two has a crush on the other which is not reciprocated. The person with the crush could be either of them, but it is more likely to be the one whose Venus is involved.
If this is the case, there could be tension between them, and it could be painful for the one who has the crush.
How to Tell if the Sun is Conjunct Venus in Synastry
If the Sun and Venus are in the same sign in two people's chart, the influence of a conjunction will be present, at least to a certain extent.
The closer the planets are by degree, the more powerful the aspect is.
The allowable margin of error, or orb, between the Sun and Venus is twelve degrees. If these planets are in the same sign and within twelve degrees of each other, the aspect is definitely present.
It is possible for the Sun and Venus to be less than twelve degrees apart from adjacent signs.
In this case, they are conjunct, but the aspect is quite weak. In practice, the two will like each other even though they seem to be quite different.
The Sun conjunct Venus will add to the overall compatibility between two people.
In general, they will like each other and enjoy being together. They will feel like they have a lot in common with each other.
It is possible, however, that the relationship will be a bit one-sided. The person whose Venus is involved may have stronger and deeper feelings, which could complicate matters.
