    hi
    good post
    I have venus conjunct mars in 7th (leo)

    I can relate to many descriptions mentioned.
    I am a flirt..to the point of aggressiveness…I am not  a beauty but I get fare share of “Looks”….some times I can be real show-off,and dramatic!!lol!

    regards

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Geez, I’ll bet! That’s a very flirtatious combination :)

  • Jose Wales

    Yep, I really like westerns.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I used to watch westerns with my mom. I’ve seen tons of them, though it’s been a while. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is one of my favorite movies. As far as westerns go, I also really like Once Upon a Time in the West, with Charles Bronson.

  • Jose Wales

    I have Venus in Aries trine Mars in Leo. Jupiter in Aries is conjunct Venus. I suppose I am attracted to tall dramatic Nordic/Teutonic women in high heels, who are very buxom. Yes, I like powerful women, but I suppose I overlook their inner qualities because I enjoy a lot of physicality in the relationship. I am not good with sentimental types, though I see the need to develop a feeling nature. God! Love as a stage play or an Olympic contest. I tend to like risky investments as well. I am not happy unless I can make at least 100% on something in a year. I love to cook, but I tend to gain weight. I thought trines were supposed to be good

    • Pjgecmendes

      me too,but venus mars sun are in capricorn,so a strong none structure also attract me as well as athletic brunettes.Normally German women are top of my list,although you see all types there: short,tall,strong,weak. Most interesting thread.

      • Pjgecmendes

        i meant “bone structure” Sorry for the typo

        • Jose Wales

          I suppose cardinal types like strong features in people. I know appearances are superficial, but I acknowledge that Aries and Leo are very masculine and visual signs. Look at Vincent Van Gogh- very visual. My mother, a Leo, is an artist, and the scariest thing to her is blindness.

      • Jose Wales

        Well it helps to see the person than get stuck on the form. I can find myself on the chase so much that I don’t settle down long enough to know someone more deeply. Yes German women are very enchanting as well as the curvy Czech-German gal. Bavarian women tend to raven haired and busty. I guess it’s the little boy in me(Venus in Aries) that gets excited by that.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Is your online name after Clint Eastwood’s character in The Outlaw Josey Wales</I.? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075029/

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Do you have anything in water?

      I like your descriptions.

      Trines are not always good. Sometimes they seem like talents that are taken for granted, spoil through non-use or get used so much because the energy is easy to access. 

      • Jose Wales

        One planet in water, Neptune. Which is interesting, because the only way I seem to get a sense of emotional release for my sadness and grief is through music and meditation or around peaceful animals like horses, cows, dogs, and cats. I must admit fire types are not used to being loved for just being. They have to do something like leap a building a single bound. I suppose the Neptune in Scorpio helps to shepherd the Venus in Aries. I like to remember this Buddhist instruction- keep soft eyes. As to trines, I have known some people to become bullies or BS artists with such aspects, though that is not always the case. I remember a Taoist, who wrote in his book that sometimes people in one life will build up virtue and spiritual energy through living hard lives with courage and compassion, only to born in the next life with much luxury. They forget the hard work from before and then begin to spend down their virtue in abusiveness of some sort. I suppose trines could like having the key to daddy’s liquor cabin- very addictive. But not in all cases. You have to know the person intuitively, because the chart is prone to misinterpretation if you are to doctrinaire.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          I like that description very much.

      • Jose Wales

        Thank you. You seem very learned in this.

  • Bob

    wanted to see your associations, as i see jodie foster has an almost exact square (leo mars, scorpio venus). hillary clinton, too (with mars conjunct pluto).   

    • Michelle

      They both blur gender lines, being rather aggressive, uncompromising women.

  • Leah-nine

    Unfortunately, this just adds to the long list of personal attributes that basically say, “Don’t ever have a relationship, ever!” Hrmph.

    • Michelle

      Which aspect do you have?

      • Tamrabell

        What if the Venus/Mars (natally) is unaspected? Does this point to someone who has trouble with close relationships in general? 

        • Michelle

          Do you mean that Venus and Mars do not make an aspect to each other in your natal chart? I don’t think that alone shows relationship problems, though there could be a disconnect between what you say you want and how you act.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NJ2WKJX3SH63U3JYMR5GOXUGOQ The One

    the picture is awesome! It looks like someone who is being erotic and sweet at the same time. Does the aspect have something about it?

    • Michelle

      Yes I think Venus/Mars has the potential to be erotic and sweet. Glad you like the pic :D I love it.

  • mirrorghost

    ain’t this the truth! (mars in aries square venus in cancer here!)

    • mirrorghost

      i mean venus in aries square mars in cancer, ha.

      • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

        It’s complicated!

        • mirrorghost

          yeah really. i can outspoken, impulsive and aggressive but also a sobbing sentimentalist who is WAY too overly sensitive. the venus trines saturn too though, i wonder if that helps me any ;)

          • Michelle

            It makes you aware of social rules (whether or not you follow them is something else). It also gives you the ability to accept that relationships require work.

            • mirrorghost

              yes, those are indeed very true! maybe too much sometimes, causing frustration.

  • Iago

    I read somewhere that a stressful aspect between these two causes sexuality issues, especially the square. It is said to create some degree of homosexualism as the male energy is “fighting” with the female one. It could also cause some kind of ultra-masculinity (machismo), I guess. Although I am pretty sure there aren’t any obvious indications of sexual orientation in a person’s chart, it’s an interesting idea.

    At any rate, I’m gay and I have the semi-square lol. I think my homosexuality is mostly due to my Venus-Dark Moon Lilith conjunction, as this supposedly creates a “denial” of anything feminine. Weirdly enough, I am in love with women, I completely admire everything they represent, their nature, archetypes, everything.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I’m always reluctant to attribute any particular aspect to a person’s sexual orientation. Hard Venus/Mars aspects could show homosexuality, but I think they can show other things as well.

      Venus-Dark Moon Lilith conjunction, as this supposedly creates a “denial” of anything feminine
      Interesting. The Dark Moon is supposed to show denial. Which house is this conjunction in?

      • Iago

        In the 11th. Dark Moon at the last degree of Aries and Venus at the beginning of Taurus.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Thanks for sharing Iago :) I’m gathering experiences for my Lilith posts.

          • Saive

            Lilith posts? Yes please! I can’t find much good or clear information online. Love your site by the way, the descriptions are really helpful.

  • Mert

    i have opposition (venus 9th sagitt and mars RX in 3th gemini)
    is it good or bad?

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      How do you like learning and education?

      • Mert

        i was asking for interpretation of what kind of spirit or habit it will give with the signs i mentioned.
        sorry for expressing myself not clearly..

        despite of me being really smart because of mercury in sag and mars rx in gemini and 3th house i am hyperactive in both psyhical and mental so i have concentration problem :((

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          i am hyperactive in both psyhical and mental so i have concentration problem :((
          I think that is your answer :)

          • Mert

            =)) so shortly what do you think of my aspect in the matter of sexual tension? what do i like most?

            “Conflicts between wanting a relationship and wanting sex” and “Viewing love as a competition” they are just god damn true=)) In addition in my book there is a really very thin line between love and hate…i can both love and hate at the same time =))

  • Anonymous

    I have OOB’s Venus Capricorn 7th Decile Mars Scorpio 5th

    I’m not sure how this would manifest.

    Much of the description sounds eerily familiar though, lol!
    Though it could come from elsewhere.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer for you at this point.

  • TUU

    I don’t have any internal conflicts, I know I want everything ;D

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Lol :)

      Which aspect do you have?

      • TUU

        Pretty close (less than 2 degrees) conjunction in Leo ;)

        Btw, I looove the colors in the photo you posted.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          You know what you want and you know how to get it ;)

          Yeah, that’s why I picked it. I love the way the dark colors make the bright colors look neon.

      • jee

        i have gemini venus trine aquarius mars! xD

  • Idan

    I have venus Quincunx mars, wonder what that says…
    I really enjoyed reading it :)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Basically what you want and how you go about getting it need some work. For example, if you have Mars in Aquarius and Venus in Cancer, then you might act aloof, but you really crave close intimacy.

      • Pjgecmendes

        ive alwaus like athletic women and prefer the passive role but dont know exactly how to approach such women.Acting MALE seems a bit odd in this case (mars-venus cappy)

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Is your Mars in aspect to Neptune?

          • Pjgecmendes

            Yes sextile to Neptune in scorpio in h6 .mars is in Cappy in h8

            • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

              Have you read the Mars/Neptune Aspects post? http://astrofix.net/2010/11/06/marsneptune-aspects/ That might clear up why there is a lack of assertive male energy.

  • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

    Hi Anany,

    For some reason your comment only just came through. What are you confused about?
    Your Venus and Mars nature are fused together, with a Leo-like expression. Maybe you are very demonstrative in relationships, or you need a constant flow of appreciation and attention from your partner.
    What are your ideas about that placement?

    • Ananya Chatterjee

      thankyou..I hate me for such late response.
      I really want to have a love marriage..i have recently discovers that I love dancing and all other artistic expressions.i can be a good host who wants to see ,that her guests are having fun and are well fed. my boy frnd says i am dominating,i hate to be in  a relationship which has become a DUTY or stale.i am very affectionate and loving…yes i would really love the CONSTANT appreciation..

      bye

      • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

        Do you have Venus in aspect to Saturn? Do you have Leo placements?

  • Anonymous

    This one has really made me re-evaluate what I want out of a relationship. I’m starting to realize more and more that I want Venus in Cancer things. These are the things that I want to allow to flow in my relationships. My Mars in Gemini is exactly conjunct Sun, with exact semisq. to Venus. I feel like this is where a “blind spot” can come in with the that tight Mars conjunction. I’ve always allowed Mars to do the acting (which it’s supposed to do), but that tends to be at odds with whoever is attracted to my Venus in Cancer. Now I look back and notice that the people I get along with more on an intimate level have Cancer or Water Mars and Gemini or Airy Venus. This, of course, makes sense astrologically, but it’s just crazy to think back on it. I was just thinking about this when I read Christine’s post.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I think that Venus and Mars show the difference between the way you act and what you want. If there’s conflict between what you want and the way you act about what you want, then you send out mixed signals and you get mixed results.

      I really like the idea of the semisquare (or even the sesquiquadrate) as possibly showing blind spots.

  • Alohaastro

    I like this. Isn’t it great how multi-faceted the planetary energy can be? And it can be one thing in one moment or situation and another the next, especially if you factor in synastry between two people.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I agree. Plus, you have to factor in the signs of Venus and Mars, and which other planets are forming aspects to those two. Somehow I just prefer to put it all together rather than breaking it down by aspect- though, I might do that eventually.

      Thank you for commenting Alohaastro :D

  • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

    O yeah..Venus+Mars= HOT PINK! :)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Really? Why do you say that?

      • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

        I said Hot pink because red is the color of mars..sea-foam is the color of Aphrodite ;)
        If you mix both, the sea-foam will neutralize/ soften the red intensity. Pink symbolize the color of romance; soft but passionate. The softer the shade of pink, the more venus influence taking over. The more opaque, for example ‘Hot pink’, the stronger mars influence. Hot pink character is passive/receptive but it has fierce obsession, pretty much the equal balance of Mars and Venus. Only drag queen and Super Cheerleader can manifest hot pink ;)

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          I’m going to be a brat here…if you really mixed seafoam and red, you’d get a pale muddy gray (using paint at least). I do like the idea of hot pink being a mix of Venus and Mars though. I think of Venus as pink and Mars as red- so that works. Um, I don’t think only cheerleaders and drag queens get to have hot pink! No fair! :D

          Do you ever watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, or the new one, what is it? Draguversity? They are guilty pleasures of mine.

        • Pjgecmendes

          I got Venus-mars conj in Capricorn and like to wear blue with some red

  • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

    Hmm..is this for synastry only? Because I just had my Venus&Mars together transiting 4th house at my solar return.
    And of course few of your keywords are apply to me ‘plus’with that difficult cancerian attitude.
    :)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Actually I had intended this post for natal aspects. Maybe I should add the word “natal” to the title. What did you experience with that transit?

      Happy Birthday ;)

      • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

        Hey thanks. Yeah I just feel the mars and venus conj transit in 4th house makes me fiercely “domesticaded.”A guy must overlook me first before I overlook them. ;)
        Hey, I just checked from my astronomy simulation software which of course can be applied to astrology. Just wanna tell you that recent Jupiter-Uranus conj in Aries is not only an ordinary conj, but because it’s DIRECTLY AT SPRING EQUINOX!! The cross section of equator and ecliptic (zodiac band) And 10 days later around Sept 20, the sun will officially pass Fall equinox, making it a PERFECT opposition. As you know, there are few planets lies on Virgo-Libra region like Saturn, Mars, Venus..they will be indirectly oppose the lonely Jupiter and Uranus on Aries. *.* Woaa…I wonder might gonna happen? It’s unusual I think..sorry off topic :3 hehe

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Woaa…I wonder might gonna happen?
          I hope nothing happens- business as usual! Maybe we will all be ready to drop our old ways of relating to other people and start fresh.

  • http://www.facebook.com/christine.truong1 Christine Truong

    I’ve recently noticed that I really like people with Venus-Mars squares — especially if they’re in fixed signs. I can imagine relationships being difficult for those people. If Venus represents WHAT you want and Mar represents HOW you get what you want, it can get a little tricky for who they’re pursuing. For example, a person with a Venus in Scorpio – Mars in Leo square, might use Leo to pursue. He might be gregarious, charming, and generous. Whoever he’s pursuing might like his Leo, but feel confused when his Venus in Scorpio is private and resents Leo traits. It must be like this for Venus-Mars squares: Who you attract is not necessary good at satisfying your Venus.

    • firetiger

      haha yeah it’s a conflict def… venus scorpio mars aquarius…. the need for intimacy vs the need for space…….. “leave me alone but always be here”~~ it can def be difficult.. I found that I get one or the other (satisfaction- mars or venus is satisfied)

      • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

        I have Venus in Aries in wide square to Mars in Cancer. There’s conflict between the need for a caring partner but feel smothered and stifled by too much closeness- but I also like that closeness.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Yes, totally. Elsa Elsa had a blog a little while ago in which she suggested that hard aspects between Venus and Mars can show someone who has difficulty being happy in a relationship.

    • http://www.facebook.com/christine.truong1 Christine Truong

      Yeah, figure it out Venus-Mars folks! :P Just kidding :D

    • Ananya

      hello
      i got venus-conj-mars in leo(7th house). what do u think?

      this article has confused me.

    • Anonymous

      i’m currently seeing a man with mars in leo, venus in scorpio. thankfully my scorpio rising can understand his intensity and need for privacy and intimacy. but with my own mars/venus/moon all in leo, i need a lot more attention than he can give (he also has aquarius moon).

      we have a lot of fixed signs between us and i don’t think we can compromise. there’s a lot of passion though.

      • Michelle

        we have a lot of fixed signs between us and i don’t think we can compromise.
        Compromise and stubbornness are big issues for Leo and Scorpio – neither one will back down from their position.

  • Paloma B

    so many conflicting descriptions??? is this for hard aspects? conjunct, square & opp all mixed together or ???
    thanks

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      It’s all mixed together- just many different ways that Venus and Mars can interact. Even with positive aspects there can be negative results, and with negative aspects there can be challenges that fuel creativity and growth.

      Thank you for reading Paloma :D

      • junemoonchild

        Michelle…I absolutely love how you put words together like this (coming from my Mercury in Gemini which is obsessed with language, etc!)…I was wondering though if you would consider seperating these descriptive combinations of possibilities by each major aspect (conjunction/sextile/trine/square/opposition)? I would enjoy reading that just as well too :)…or I just had the thought how fun it would be for me to try and do this myself! Words, words, words…love it!! Thank you….junemoonchild

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          I’ve thought about separating them out, but I don’t know if I’m going to do it. Maybe eventually ;)
