Venus Conjunct Mars

Your relationship with your parents will determine your attitudes towards the opposite sex and marriage for better or worse. Normally, this gives a harmonious blending of active and passive energies and makes you sensitive and loving, unless both planets were under severe stress.
Your drive is generally expressed constructively, and this aspect is an asset when it comes to relating to the public and is said to give luck in financial matters. This conjunction can vary dramatically from sign to sign and tends to give you valuable insights into your earliest dealing with the opposite sex - including dealings with your opposite-sex parent, siblings, and peers.
You have very strong emotions. Because of their intensity, you find it hard to treat relationships lightly – everything, even the smallest gesture, has importance to you. This is true in almost all relationships, and it is especially true when it comes to sex and romance. If there are problems in your love life, it could be because you are being too pushy or coming on too strong.
This aspect stimulates affections in a way that causes you to want an all-consuming, forever type of relationship but, funnily enough, it also gives you a flirtatious streak that continues even after you have entered into a satisfying relationship. You feel that it is especially important to remain desirable – not just to a mate or lover, but to the opposite sex in general – and with your sensual energy this comes easily to you.
As the conjunction is a uniting aspect, and Mars and Venus are the male and female principles, respectively, one might assume that it is a portent of a lasting marriage. However, this is not always the case. While you want a lasting relationship very badly, you suffer your fair share of squabbles and separations. Jealousy - sometimes justified, sometimes not - on one side or another seems to often be the primary cause of discord.
