Venus Opposition Mars


Somewhat impulsive and sometimes fickle, you tend to have a rather turbulent love life. You have an intense emotional nature and can at times be hypersensitive to the perceived slights of others.
Often your feelings about the opposite sex are ambivalent. In love, there is often a tinge of 'can't live with them; can't live without them'. You both love passionately and hate passionately – sometimes the same person, sometimes on the same day!
You often show a great deal of impatience in both friendships and romantic relationships, but especially in the latter. This sometimes stems from a lack of trust in those close to you. Often this aspect signifies a person whose childhood was unhappy. This may have been a result of difficulties with the opposite-sex parent, a strife-filled or broken home, or being ridiculed or ignored by the opposite sex in teenage years.
There is often a carry-over of these childhood experiences and the emotions stemming from them into the adult years. Often therapy can banish these 'ghost emotions' and lead to a more satisfactory love life.
Sometimes you are capable of sublimating sexual and romantic energies into artistic activities. As you are inclined to be excessively intense, involvement in art or music can bring strong emotions down to a manageable level.
If you have Venus opposing Mars by sign but not by aspect, the foregoing may apply to you. However, less energy would be expended in passionate hating; you would be more inclined to just break up and go on.
