In astrology, an “aspect” is a geometric relationship between two planets. Aspects are important in analyzing a horoscope because they seem to make the two connected planets function together or be linked. The aspects considered here are just the major ones: the conjunction, sextile, square, trine and opposition. You will note that only the aspects formed by the personal planets (The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) have been shown on these pages. These are the planets which are the “players” in a romantic connection. The slower moving planets have little to do with one-on-one connections. Also note that aspects formed with Neptune and Pluto have been excluded since these aspects tend to appear in comparison with everyone born at about the same time you were and have little to do with focused relationships.
Synastry Sun Aspects
Sun Conjunct Sun
You share a common Sun sign position (unless, of course, one of the suns is at the end of the sign and the other right at the beginning of the next sign). This Conjunction of Suns has some pluses and some minuses. Certainly you understand each other, but you may both be trying to play the same starring role in the relationship, with competition rather than cooperation the result. Much depends on the nature of the sign involved. Signs that are cooperative by nature such as Libra and Aquarius do better than the more demanding Aries or Leo. Mutable signs, Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, may find the combination easy, but a sense of direction may be lacking in the match. There is also the danger that individuals with the same Sun sign will goad each other to an excessive display of the characteristics of this sign.
Sun Conjunct Moon
When the Sun in one chart is Conjunct with the Moon in the other, there is an extremely strong indication of a powerful romantic relationship and potential for marriage. The Moon person is emotionally in tune with the Sun person. This relationship works best if the Sun person is naturally in a role of leadership. In a marriage relationship, this aspect shows a strong sexual attraction. In this aspect, there is some tendency for the Sun to dominate the Moon to a degree. In any event, the Conjunction makes two people fast friends with a deep mutual understanding and appreciation of one another. The spirit of cooperation is significant.
Sun Conjunct Mercury
This Conjunction suggests that the Sun, representing the will and power potential, has a great deal of influence on Mercury and upon the Mercury person’s thinking. At the same time, the Mercury person has a good deal of influence on the Sun person as well, providing ideas and mental stimulation. This Conjunction shows a great deal of compatibility in an intellectual sense. The ability to communicate in a very interesting and positive way is shown by this Conjunction.
Sun Conjunct Venus
This shows that you are in tune with each other socially, and that you will enjoy each other’s company; you simply have fun together. You tend to share the same interests and cultural values. There is a strong emotional, intuitive link, and if other factors are favourable, this comparative aspect contributes greatly to romantic attractions, and may be an indicator of marriage.
Sun Conjunct Mars
This is a dynamic comparative combination which can lead to much accomplishment or conflict. Conflicts are usually of the ego variety. If you are to get along harmoniously, you must develop a healthy respect for one another’s independence and free will. You are apt to have a good spirit of competition, and sometimes this competition can get vicious. This Conjunction often indicates sexual attractions, but of itself doesn’t indicate love or tenderness.
Sun Conjunct Jupiter
This aspect shows a spirit of mutual generosity in the relationship; he is especially generous to you. You tend to build up each other’s confidence and optimism. You share many spiritual, philosophic, and/or cultural values. This relationship will always tend to be honest and aboveboard. In a marital relationships, this comparative combination indicates cooperation in handling domestic responsibilities, especially the raising of children.
Sun Conjunct Saturn
This is a very difficult aspect between charts. There may be jealousy, or a dampening of self-confidence and enthusiasm. This comparative combination does not favor romantic relationships because of the heavy authoritarian implications. However, when aspects do form in spite of this aspect, the staying power of Saturn usually helps keep you together permanently.
Sun Conjunct Uranus
This combination produces an interesting and unique relationship. Sudden, magnetic fascinations are common with individuals showing this aspect. There are many surprises, and events may be somewhat unpredictable. A strong sexual attraction is usually present. This can be a very exciting and adventurous relationship, but not one that is apt to be very stable unless there are other indicators of stability in the comparative analysis.
Sun Conjunct Ascendant
You tend to reinforce each other’s self-esteem and self-expression. Although this position can produce a sense of competition, it is more apt to denote a very significant spiritual link between two people. This is an extremely strong indicator of compatibility in a relationship.
Sun Sextile Sun
This aspect denotes friendship, communication, and cooperation in creative self-expression. You tend to encourage one another and are apt to share pleasurable activities. This is a very positive aspect for romantic relationships.
Sun Sextile Moon
This is an aspect considered very good for cooperation and understanding. There is a compatibility influence assuming that the Sun and Moon are compatible sign, i.e. Fire and Air, or Earth and Water. This is a very good combination for family and domestic relationships.
Sun Sextile Mercury
This comparative combination favours communication and intellectual friendships, and general cooperation. The ability to communicate enables you to resolve problem areas in the relationship.
Sun Sextile Venus
You enjoy each other’s company, and may share many common ideals and values. There is a good deal of emotional understanding reflected in this combination. Though this doesn’t necessarily show marriage, it does help and favour marriage or romantic relationships.
Sun Sextile Mars
This aspect denotes a rather energetic cooperation; you like to work together and get things done. It suggests a friendly competition or stimulation to action and achievement. It is an aspect helping romantic relations.
Sun Sextile Jupiter
This aspect produces a cooperative attitude and generous friendship. You are likely to make excellent traveling companions. There is general philosophical agreement at many levels.
Sun Sextile Saturn
A favourable Sun/Saturn aspect is desirable because it gives such a tone of stability to the relationship. This aspect produces serious friendships and cooperation in business and organizational matters. It denotes an attitude of restraint, discipline, and stability in the relationship. Though it does not of itself indicate marriage or romantic attraction, it does increase the durability of such relationships.
Sun Sextile Uranus
This aspect generally denotes unusual friendships, or meeting under extraordinary circumstances. There is likely to be an inexplicable and immediate attraction. Though associated with romantic attractions, this aspect doesn’t of itself indicate an enduring relationship.
Sun Sextile Ascendant
This aspect suggests that you are able to direct your wills effectively in working together. It’s effective in working toward mutual goals and enhancing one another’s self-image. This is an indicator of romantic and sexual attraction, and it’s also favourable for harmony in a marriage relationship.
Sun Square Sun
A Square between the natal Sun in your respective charts denotes a continuing ego conflict. You may tend to interfere in one another’s creative self-expression. Resistance and resentment is apt to build up in the relationship if special efforts to be tolerant are not exercised. In marriage, raising children can be a problem with many differing views as to methods. Serious differences in attitudes in many areas.
Sun Square Moon
This is a very difficult comparative combination for family, marital, and romantic relationships. Just as the best relationships are those showing the Sun and Moon in harmonious aspect, the adversity of the Square can denote serious challenges. You will find it very hard and unnatural to adapt to each other’s temperament, as well as the general pace and style of living. Major disagreements about the handling of finances, business affairs, and the raising of children often arise. Frequently, these are the results of differences in family background or deep-seated emotional habit patterns.
Sun Square Mercury
This aspect causes communication difficulties in the relationship. When this aspect is active, you tend to boss him around too much. This aspect also suggests some major differences in the intellectual outlook.
Sun Square Venus
This placement denotes difficulties in romantic interaction between a couple. Often producing romantic and sexual attractions, this aspect does not favour marriage or serious romantic relationships unless these difficult issues can be resolved. Real emotional sensitivity and caring may be lacking, and the association is more likely to be based on pleasure seeking and sensuality. There can be disagreements in social and cultural issues, and in the handling of financial affairs.
Sun Square Mars
This is one of the most difficult comparative combinations because it produces violent conflicts and disagreements, although it also tends to indicate an attraction as well. The level on which these conflicts are expressed will vary depending on other factors in the chart, but the extreme range can include everything from a competition and some friction in the relationship, to actual physical abuse. This is not a good combination for any sort of relationship as you are likely to react to each other impulsively rather than thoughtfully, and when it is found in marital relationships, there must be a conscious effort not to argue and fight.
Sun Square Jupiter
With this combination natural tendencies toward excesses, expressed by either individual, are likely to be extended and inflated. Extravagance, overconfidence, and overextending will be a bi-product of the relationship. You tend to encourage each other’s tendencies toward self-indulgence and impracticality. This is not a good relationship for raising a family because there is a tendency to ignore responsibility and too much is taken for granted. In romantic relationships difficulties arise over differences in philosophic, religious, or moral viewpoints.
Sun Square Saturn
This is a very difficult aspect because it shows a repressive tone to the relationship. Ego conflicts and a clash of wills are not unusual with this combination. In a close personal relationship or marriage, this aspect shows difficulties, burdens, and discouraging effects. You may look at your responsibilities to one another as burdens and find it difficult to be fun loving and spontaneous in each other’s presence. The Sun person may think of the Saturn partner as something of a “wet blanket.”
Sun Square Uranus
This combination may produce extremely strong attractions of very short and unstable duration. There is an attitude of rebellion likely in this relationship. You may tend to find him very unreliable and undependable in certain ways. Cooperation in any sort of relationship is difficult to maintain.
Sun Square Ascendant
This aspect denotes a clash of wills and there is a sense of conflict involved regarding the effect of the relationship on individual independence. On the positive side, if the overall comparison is good and both of you are sufficiently mature, this aspect can spell dynamic cooperation in your mutual activities.
Sun Trine Sun
This is an excellent comparative combination for mutual compatibility. You have many similar values and you’re likely to be natural friends. This is a helpful aspect for romantic relationships and marriage. There is enough similarity in self-expression to produce harmony, but not so much that competition is likely to be a problem. The tone of relationship will be determined a great deal by the element (Earth, Fire, Air, or Water) in which to Sun is found.
Sun Trine Moon
This is one of the finest comparative combinations for a successful romantic relationship or marriage. This is especially true when it is the man’s Sun and woman’s Moon, but the aspect is very positive and harmonious in either direction. This Trine produces a receptivity to the energy and creative self-expression of the Sun. The Sun person tends to initiate action and take the leadership role in the relationship (explaining why, in a traditional sense, it is preferable to have a “his” Sun and “her” Moon). The interaction between partners has a pleasant flow. The nature of the relationship tends to take on the flavor of the element (earth, fire, air or water) within which these bodies reside.
Sun Trine Mercury
This is such a good aspect because few problems are insurmountable if there is good communication. This comparative combination is very helpful in any relationship because it denotes excellent communication between the two of you. You stimulate each other intellectually and share many cultural or educational interests. You are able to discuss problems and work them out.
Sun Trine Venus
This is an excellent comparative combination for romantic and sexual attraction and marriage. You enjoy each other’s company and have fun together. There is good emotional rapport and mutual sensitivity and generosity. You encourage each other socially and culturally.
Sun Trine Mars
This is a very active comparative combination showing mutual support and efforts toward mutual self-improvement and development. You are both ambitious and interested in improving your lives. There may be a strong sense of friendly competition in the relationship. The combination adds sexual attraction in a romantic relationship.
Sun Trine Jupiter
This aspect endows the relationship with a very harmonious and mutually helpful colour. Jupiter is very generous, benevolent, and optimistic toward the Sun, while the Sun provides much vitality, and encourages the Jupiter individual. In a romantic situation, this aspect produces cultural and spiritual values that give durability and lasting quality. You are apt to make excellent traveling companions.
Sun Trine Saturn
A favourable Sun/Saturn aspect is desirable because it gives such a tone of stability to the relationship. This comparative combination balances, disciplines and organizes the relationship. Taken alone it does not indicate a romantic relationship, but in such a relationship or in a marriage, this aspect increases the stability and the durability. There is a mutual appreciation of responsibility and a willingness to work out difficulties.
Sun Trine Uranus
This aspect makes for a very exciting friendship or romance. You have a strong magnetic attraction for each other. This combination often shows mutual interests in unusual, esoteric, scientific or common organizational activities. Although the aspects of Uranus in romantic terms are neutral, the magnetic appeal of the placement can produce a sexual attraction. There is a definite friendship attachment usually based on a mutual respect for one another’s need for freedom and independence.
Sun Trine Ascendant
This aspect suggests that you are able to direct your wills effectively in working together. This aspect is effective in working toward mutual goals and enhancing one another’s self-image. This is an indicator of romantic and sexual attraction, and it’s also favourable for harmony in a marriage relationship.
Sun Opposition Sun
This comparative combination is not unusual in marriages. Opposites do attract and this opposition is basically a relationship aspect. You balance each other and complement each other’s deficiencies. There is a strong attraction and you are important to each other. However, there can also be a clash of wills and egos, and you must respect the other’s personal autonomy if you are to get along. Any attempt for either to be the boss will meet with opposition. Nonetheless, this is a good aspect for sexual and romantic connection.
Sun Opposition Moon
This is a comparative aspect found in many marital relationships. In this relationship, the Sun person is the more dynamic, and the Moon person is the more receptive influence. Thus, there is something of a unbalance of power here. The Sun person tends to dominate. This aspect perhaps worked better at an earlier time in traditional male dominate marriages, when the male was the solar partner.
Sun Opposition Mercury
This comparative combination promises a good deal of communication between the two of you, but there is likely to be widely varying viewpoints and opinions. You are probably able to arrive at a balanced judgment.
Sun Opposition Venus
This aspect is frequently found in romantic attractions and marriages. It is usually indicative of a relatively harmonious relationship based on a deep friendship and a fondness for each other’s company. There can be mutual enjoyment of and participation in social activities, parties, concerts, or the theater. The negative side of the opposition can produce problems relating to the Sun person’s ego and power drive and/or the Venus person’s sensitivities or self-indulgence.
Sun Opposition Mars
Contacts between the Sun and Mars are frequently found in marriages because it is one of strong physical attraction and the blend is productive of much “heat.” The desire nature is definitely stimulated. This comparative combination produces a conflict of will and ego, which can result in power struggles and fights for supremacy in the relationship. This is not a good romantic indicator because ego and willfulness will be continuously at odds. The key to successfully working with this aspect is psychological maturity. Because it is impossible to eliminate the competition for dominance imposed here, it is necessary for both to respect the other’s free will.
Sun Opposition Jupiter
Although you may get along well and are very generous with each other, you tend to encourage each other into excesses or overindulging in one way or another. You may have widely differing view on religion and philosophy.
Sun Opposition Saturn
This is a very difficult aspect as it tends to generate mutual jealousy and clashes of personal authority. The Saturn individual is apt to squelch the Sun individual’s enthusiasm and self-expression. To live with this mutual aspect, you must both respect each other’s autonomy and neither should expect to have the upper hand. The handling of serious mutual responsibilities will be a major issue. This is not considered a favourable aspect for romantic relations.
Sun Opposition Uranus
This comparative combination often produces a serious clash of wills. Uranus wants freedom and independence and the Sun tends to be authoritarian. If you want to get along, there must be a strict appreciation of space and an unconditional acceptance of independent ways.
Synastry Moon Aspects
Moon Conjunct Moon
This placement denotes an emotional empathy in your relationship. You tend to go through moods simultaneously. Your mutual understanding is good, but you may tend to bring out emotional excesses in one another. Attitudes and values in home and domestic affairs are similar.
Moon Conjunct Mercury
This aspect provides a good avenue for communication, although in some cases people that share this aspect talk so incessantly about trivial and inconsequential matters to the point of boring or annoying each other. Normally the ability to communicate is a positive circumstance, but of itself, this position doesn’t indicate sexual or romantic attraction.
Moon Conjunct Venus
This is a very strong sexual and emotional link and one of the best comparative aspects for romance. There is an exchange of domestic and emotional stability, with love and emotional understanding. There is a sensitive harmony with each other’s moods and subconscious emotional responses. This aspect shows the ability to share in very feeling ways. This is an excellent aspect for marriage, family relationships, and for any persons who are working together in a close relationship. It is both harmonious and understanding.
Moon Conjunct Mars
This is a difficult comparative aspect because the aggressiveness of Mars upsets and irritates the Moon, the Moon person’s moodiness and sensitivity makes the Mars person impatient. In two really strong charts this aspect can produce constructive action in business, family and domestic affairs. It may produce a good deal of sexual attraction, but with no guarantee of compatibility. Mars is too apt to try to change the partner. This connection works best in circumstances when the Mars person is the Male and the Moon person is the female. However, in all cases this is a difficult combination for marriage, family relationships, or for people who live together, since it is likely to produce domestic disagreements.
Moon Conjunct Jupiter
This aspect puts a good deal of harmony in your relationship. You share feelings of trust and mutual confidence. You tend to have compatible religious, social and ethical values, and you encourage each other. This placement of itself doesn’t indicate romance, but it will increase the quality of a romantic relationship and it also will increase the durability and stability of a marital relationship.
Moon Conjunct Saturn
This is a very difficult comparative combination for most relationships. Saturn sometimes is emotionally depressing and periodically has a wet-blanket effect on the Moon. In a serious relationship together, the Moon person tends to be too moody, and the Saturn person is insensitive. In a marital or romantic relationship, this combination is likely to produce coldness and estrangement. A relationship may be based on the need for security rather than any genuine sympathetic understanding between the two of you.
Moon Conjunct Uranus
This aspect produces a relationship that is unusual and exciting, but not always stable. Much depends on the rest of the comparison. Unless other aspects, such as good Saturn aspects, balance this comparative Conjunction, the relationship is likely to be unstable, and mutual feelings are subject to sudden and unpredictable changes. In romantic relationships, you may be inclined to live together without being married, as in new age communal living arrangements. In this pairing, the Uranus person provides the excitement and stimulation, and the Moon person offers a base of operation or home.
Moon Sextile Moon
This aspect aids communication and emotional empathy. In family and domestic relationships, this combination show compatibility derived from habit patterns established in the childhood family.
Moon Sextile Mercury
This aspect produces good emotional empathy and communication. This is a favourable aspect for all sorts of domestic relationships because there is the ability to communicate feelings and emotions.
Moon Sextile Venus
This is an aspect for romantic attraction and for marriage because it shows a sense of sympathy for each other. There is mutual consideration and you are likely to share social, musical, artistic and other activities and appreciations together. Common friends are usually found in relationships featuring this aspect. Emotional understanding may border on the intuitive. The aspect bestows a good deal of harmony in an emotional sense.
Moon Sextile Mars
This is a good aspect for dynamic cooperation in action. Mars has a “get moving” impact on the Moon, while the Moon helps calm Mars down. This aspect may contribute to sexual attraction in romantic relationships.
Moon Sextile Jupiter
This comparative combination produces generosity and good will in your relationship. This aspect is better in business relationships as it provides a basis of understanding and trust. These elements are, of course, helpful in any relationship.
Moon Sextile Saturn
This comparative combination is more helpful in business and professional relationships. You have a good sense of responsibility toward one another. The Saturn person may act as sort of a father figure. Not an indicator of romantic involvement of itself, this aspect works best in situations requiring thrift, resourcefulness, discipline and responsibility. It does suggest a sense of loyalty, respect, and durability marks the relationship.
Moon Sextile Uranus
This comparative combination produces an interesting, exciting, unusual friendship. The two of you may have met under unusual circumstances. This relationship is likely to remain lively and interesting. You have an intuitive sense about each other’s moods and feelings.

Moon Square Moon
This comparative combination makes it very hard for you to understand each other’s moods and emotional responses. You may be from very different family and cultural backgrounds. Your moods are sort of out of phase, making it hard for you to do the same things at the same time. It’s hard to see eye to eye on family, domestic, dietary, and financial affairs. If the Moons are in cardinal signs, you may act impulsively without consulting one another. If the Moons are in fixed signs, you may disagree over stubbornly held emotional attitudes and patterns. If the Moons are in mutable signs, you may feel nervous and irritable in each other’s presence and will bring out unpleasant memories.
Moon Square Mercury
This aspect produces difficulty in communication and with general understanding one another regarding everyday practical domestic affairs and family matters. There may be disagreement over diet, personal hygiene, neatness and order in the home, and the handling of personal affairs. Mercury tends to operate on a more intellectual and rational level, while the Moon responds on an instinctual and emotional level. Mercury is likely to view the other as over-emotional and unreliable, while the Moon person sees the other as overly critical and insensitive. A good deal of time may be spend discussing these differences with little resolve.
Moon Square Venus
This is an adverse aspect for romantic relationship because it denotes great difficulty in understanding each others moods and feelings. In some cases, the attraction may be emotional or sexual, without real understanding or overall mental and spiritual compatibility. There is a an attraction here, but marriages may be contracted for reasons of financial or domestic security, or as a result of family pressure, rather than because of real affinity.
Moon Square Mars
This is one of the most difficult and emotionally explosive of all comparative aspects. The Mars person is likely to be impatient with the Moon person. Conversely, the Moon may view Mars as rude, insensitive and overbearing. This combination is likely to produce emotional clashes and arguments. It is unfavourable for marriage and living together, although the physical attraction of the aspect does frequently result in the development of relationships.
Moon Square Jupiter
This comparative combination indicates the possibility of an insincere or somewhat hypocritical relationship. There may be a pandering to each other’s weaknesses and self-indulgent tendencies. As parents, you may be inclined to be overly protective to children or to each other. You may join in unwise financial endeavours or be extravagant in expenditures together.
Moon Square Saturn
This is a difficult and emotionally restrictive comparative combination. The restriction may be a financial one or it may be more of an emotional nature. Career and status ambitions, and resulting responsibilities cause conflict with family and domestic concerns. Saturn may be so wrapped up in career activities as to have no time to devote to the emotional needs of home and family.
Moon Square Uranus
This comparative combination is known for its sudden and very temporary attractions and infatuations. Long term, this is not a relationship aspect that works out. You tend to make each other nervous and irritable, and you’re prone to disagreements. Emotional upsets and immature behaviour often mark relationships showing this aspect.
Moon Square Ascendant/Descendant
Family upbringing and emotional habit patterns conflict with self-expression, self-image, and the concept of cooperation in the relationship. This aspect cause emotional upsets and disagreements about how to conduct family business and domestic affairs.
Moon Trine Moon
This connection provides good emotional rapport and harmony. This is a great aspect for people in the same family or living in the same household. There is mutual understanding of one another without losing yourselves in the process. Companionship, cooperation, and a spirit of helpfulness make this an excellent combination for an enduring partnership or marriage.
Moon Trine Mercury
This aspect is good for communication about everyday practical affairs, especially those relating to business, work and domestic matters. There is an ability to communicate emotional matters. This is not an indicator of sexual attraction, but it does tend to improve romantic affairs.

Moon Trine Mars

The combination also contributes to sexual attraction, working in this regard best when it is “her” Moon and “his” Mars.
Moon Trine Jupiter
This is one of the best comparative aspects for mutual kindness, generosity, and helpfulness in all relationships. It is especially helpful for harmony in family and domestic relationships. Often there is a sharing of religious, social, and ethical values with respect to home and family affairs. In some cases, there may be psychic or intuitive link between the natives.

This combination does not, of itself, indicate romantic or sexual attractions, but it does increase the durability and stability of such a relationship by providing shared cultural, educational, moral, and religious values and interests.
Moon Trine Saturn
This comparative combination is helpful for cooperation in serious responsibilities, business matters, and domestic affairs. It is not an indicator of romantic attractions, but it certainly improves the durability of a relationship by conferring a practical, responsible approach to everyday issues and problems. You may tend to rely on each other for security or stability. Saturn tends to be the restraining or disciplining influence in the relationship.
Moon Trine Uranus
This comparative aspect often indicates sexual attraction. Uranus supplies a great deal of interest and exciting in the relationship.

Moon Opposition Moon
When the Moon in comparative charts are in opposition there is a tendency to mirror and polarize one another’s emotional moods, thus triggering strong emotional response in each other. Difficulties can arise in this situation if your respective moods are out of harmony because you will both be in a bad mood at the same time. You must work especially hard to understand each other’s moods and feeling. There is also likely to be a near mirror image between your backgrounds and family upbringing.
Moon Opposition Mercury
This aspect often presents communication problems. Mercury reacts on a rational level while the Moon is tuned in on a more emotional level.

This combination often shows disagreements over diet, everyday practical affairs, financial expenditures, and domestic and family issues.
Moon Opposition Venus
This comparative combination indicates strong romantic and sexual attraction, but in a situation that involves very delicate and difficult emotional communication. Feelings are easily hurt, one or both may feel misunderstood or “used” for sexual gratification.

The relationship may make one or the other feel pessimistic and fearful. This is a real wet-blanket aspect.
Moon Opposition Uranus

Venus Conjunct Mars
This is about the strongest of all indicators of sexual attraction. It removes any question in this regard. Whether or not this leads to more sensitive, romantic feelings or to marriage, depends on the rest of natal Horoscopes and how they compare.

Venus Conjunct Uranus
This comparative combination has a way of creating sudden and exciting romantic attractions; few aspects are stronger in the sexual attraction department. There is a definite romantic fascination for each other, and if other signs in the chart are right it may last, but often it won’t.

Mars, on the other hand, helps Venus overcome inertia and become productive.
Venus Sextile Jupiter
This aspect shows a sharing of cultural, religious and other higher values. You may be inclined to work together as an effective team in charitable, religious, or organizational endeavours. In marriage or romantic relationships, the sharing of religious, cultural, and educational values provides a basis of lasting compatibility that goes beyond emotional, sexual attraction.

Venus Square Mars

The relationship can be entered into by one or both parties merely for sexual gratification, without real concern for the other party as a person. In a romantic or marital relationship, sexual jealousy and possessiveness can be a problem. This is a difficult aspect for close personal relationships, but it is often present in them because of the high degree of sexual compatibility it generates at the outset of the relationship.
Venus Square Jupiter

There may be a serious departure in views regarding religion, education, or merely habits and taste. In this relationship the Jupiter individual is apt to think the other too self-indulgent. Venus may view Jupiter as too serious, and overly concerned with religion, philosophy, or culture.
Venus Square Saturn
This comparative combination is one that is very difficult in a relationship. In most cases, these two won’t be voluntarily attracted to each other. The relationship is one that probably should be avoided, for this is not a good aspect for marriage or romance.
