Venus Opposition Mars
Either your relationship with one or both parents was difficult, or their relationship with each other was difficult. Impulsive and sometimes fickle, you tend to have a rather turbulent love life. Hypersensitivity is common when this aspect is present. You have an intense emotional nature. Often your feelings about the opposite sex are ambivalent. In love, there's often a tinge of 'can't live with him / her; can't live without him / her'. You love passionately and hate passionately - sometimes the same person! There's a great deal of impatience in relationships - especially romantic relationships. This sometimes stems from a lack of trust in the opposite sex. 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 the teenage years. Occasionally it results from a too-early sexual experience that came before the person was mature enough to understand and handle it. Anyway, there's 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 sexual / romantic energies are sublimated into artistic activities. For those who 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'd be more inclined to just break up and go on.
