Venus Aspects

Venus aspects significantly influence your relationships more than one might realize. Venus serves as the primary indicator of love and relationships in a natal horoscope. Its interactions with other points and planets add nuances, shaping and defining it — and consequently, shaping your love life. Every planetary aspect to natal Venus from another point or planet carries specific implications for your romantic experiences. We will outline all planetary aspects in their most fundamental form, meaning we will consider the planetary principles solely, without the influence of any additional planets or celestial bodies. Thus, we will merge only TWO planetary principles, altered by the aspects.

Venus Aspects to the Sun

The Sun and Venus can never be more than 48 degrees apart, forming only a conjunction, semi-sextile, or semi-square. When one of these aspects is exact, Venus enhances the body (symbolized by the Sun), except when the conjunction is precise within 16 minutes (orb no more than 0 degrees 16 minutes). Sometimes, the individual’s outer appearance becomes a significant aspect of their life in one way or another. The individual may possess a large ego and take pride in themselves. A tight conjunction can indicate significant challenges in finding the right partner, as the individual may be overly enamored with the idea of love. The semi-sextile often suggests early romantic experiences and a generally joyful youth. The semi-square between the Sun and Venus might suggest a separation from a lover, often due to career demands. The individual may hold a demanding job that consumes much of their time, leaving less for romantic pursuits.

Venus Aspects to the Moon

All aspects of Venus to the Moon tend to render the individual somewhat naive and emotionally unstable. Often, there is a desire for nurturing. Generally, any aspect between these two celestial bodies leads to possessiveness and a craving for physical affection, except when the Moon squares or is inconjunct to Venus, which can indicate a hesitance or even a strong dislike of touching others. Contacts between the Moon and Venus are passive, suggesting a somewhat indolent disposition.

Venus Aspects to Mercury

The two planets can never exceed a separation of 78°, forming only conjunctions, semi-sextiles, semi-squares, sextiles, or quintiles (72°). This often bestows charm and frequently a melodious voice. Venus aspects to Mercury represent a highly diplomatic pairing, abhorring severe arguments and conflicts. The individual possesses the ability to persuade others, whether for better or worse. While it may be an alluring aspect, it is not sexual in nature; sexual interests are conceptualized mentally rather than physically.

Venus Aspects to Mars

The sextile and trine aspects are known for their charm, surpassing even the Mercury-Venus aspects. An individual is well-equipped to care for themselves, particularly when there’s a conjunction of both planets. Such a conjunction is associated with passion and intense creative (artistic) impulses. The square and inconjunct aspects often indicate conflicts between men and women, potentially leading to challenges in love and marriage. Not all romantic desires will be fulfilled, and these aspects may also suggest infidelity, which could stem from either the native or their partner. The square aspect is notorious for stirring up tumultuous relationships, fueled by overly optimistic expectations about one’s romantic life. Venus aspects to Mars signal a craving for an energetic and dynamic relationship. A constant stimulus is necessary to keep the relationship engaging; without it, boredom may set in, possibly leading to infidelity or even separation/divorce.

Venus Aspects to Jupiter

All natal aspects of Venus to Jupiter, between Fortuna Minor (Venus) and Fortuna Major (Jupiter), are deemed beneficial. However, with Jupiter, there’s a tendency to overindulge or exaggerate. Nonetheless, this combination is widely favored and tends to render the individual well-known and liked, regardless of the specific aspect. It leads to an easy admiration for others and, most importantly, for one’s partner. The square aspect between Venus and Jupiter signifies a separation, potentially indicating that the partner might pass away first. The individual must understand that every person is accountable for their own actions. All aspects bring (naive) enthusiasm.

Venus Aspects to Saturn

Venus and Saturn are often at odds, regardless of their aspect. Saturn’s cold and distant nature clashes with Venus, who thrives on companionship. Thus, even when Venus and Saturn form sextile or trine aspects, one can expect significant challenges and limitations in love life. These aspects may delay love but do not prevent it, often resulting in love found later in life, sometimes very late. Such aspects may lead to a diligent and responsible work ethic. However, they also tend to bring disappointing romantic experiences, causing one to wonder if finding the right partner is possible. The square and opposition aspects, and occasionally the conjunction, depending on other aspects, can result in particularly harsh romantic experiences, including feelings of rejection or inadequacy. This can lead to the construction of emotional barriers that are difficult to break down. Regardless of the aspect, Venus-Saturn aspects can indicate a significant age difference between partners or the need for substantial sacrifices. When these planets interact, love can be painful. Individuals with this aspect are often prepared to sacrifice greatly for their partners and feel a strong sense of duty to support them. Despite the aspect, these planets together do not suggest a flamboyant union but rather a relationship based on deep, loyal friendship, responsibility, trust, and genuine feelings, particularly with the conjunction, sextile, or trine. While some may view such a relationship as dull, it is fundamentally about loyalty and faithfulness. The inconjunct aspect often signifies separations, divorces, or even deaths.

Venus Aspects to Uranus

The conjunction, square, and opposition aspects signify a strong desire for freedom, often leading to a withdrawal from a close romantic union. These aspects are associated with separation, divorce, or, more positively, infrequent meetings. Venus’s other aspects to Uranus also cherish freedom but manage it more gracefully. The individual may find it difficult to spend too much time with others or the same person for extended periods. Emotional connections tend to cool rapidly as they deepen. There is frequently an instant attraction, yet the relationships may be fleeting. All Venus aspects to Uranus connect to a love of dancing and rhythm. Typically, the combination of these two planets introduces unique elements to a relationship, such as significant age gaps, partners from vastly different social or cultural backgrounds, or notable physical disparities.

Venus Aspects to Neptune

Most aspects of Venus to Neptune are associated with artistic and creative traits, elevating love to a more transcendent, impersonal level. Often, individuals find it challenging to stay grounded in reality, constructing dreams that lead to excessive expectations and subsequent disappointments. These natives may not have a strong interest in physical intimacy but are capable of experiencing love in a platonic manner. The combination of these two planets symbolizes a non-physical form of romance. An opposition aspect suggests a love that fades or is completely unattainable. The sesquiquadrate aspect indicates a propensity for sorrowful and tearful romantic experiences. One should anticipate numerous disappointments in love before finding the ideal partner.

Venus Aspects to Pluto

All aspects of Venus to Pluto introduce a profound intensity to relationships and romantic life. Often, these aspects are marked by jealousy and possessiveness. Relationships may develop complex, web-like dynamics, leading to unhealthy and destructive bonds. The combination of these planets can signify a deep fear of rejection, manifesting in clingy and dependent behaviors, whether from oneself or the partner. There’s a tendency to become deeply involved with others, sometimes to the point of being unable to disengage, suggesting a strong influence from ‘the other,’ especially if the aspect is exact. Eating disorders are not rare when these aspects are exact, frequently leading to weight-related issues. Moreover, relationships may repeatedly oscillate between love and hate, warmth and coldness. Any aspect of Venus to Pluto can induce a sense of guilt in relation to the romantic bond. The inconjunct often signifies the loss of a loved one and carries a heavy emotional toll. The opposition aspect is particularly intense and emotionally demanding, while the square aspect is known for its uncompromising nature.
