Mars Square or Opposite Venus
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Mars square or opposite your natal Venus. This transit is a very potent aphrodesiac. However, there is likely to be discord between you and your partner. There is often a power component in sexuality at this time where it is a sort of bargaining chip. This combination often brings love/hate relationships into your life. If you can't find an area of compromise between you are your partner, there is likely to be alot of irritability, sexual power games, and issues of domination and submission, etc. This can be a creative time for you. In business and finance, be especially careful about bargains that look too good to be true. Business relationships formed at this time tend to not last long as the advantages are usually lopsided.
If Venus is lord of your 1st house, you may be the object of someone else's affection, but may not want to reciprocate. Personal popularity increases.
If lord of your 2nd, you may feel like shopping or spending money. Sometimes indicates wasteful spending upon useless objects. This is more likely the case if you were born during the day.
If lord of your 3rd, it is a good time for creativity and artistic expression. You may become more popular around your neighbors for some reason. Chance meetings while doing errands are more likely.
If lord of your 4th, you may be more fond of your personal privacy than usual. You may decorate your home, but you may question your taste later.
If lord of your 5th, it is often a time of romance and socializing. Meeting a new love interest is more likely now, but it may be a fatal attraction. Power and sexuality mix.
If lord of your 6th, you might feel a bit distracted at work and have difficulty getting things done. Sometimes indicates sexual harassment at work or jealousy.
If lord of your 7th, it may be a discordant time in an existing marriage or partnership. New relationships that start now tend to be one sided.
If lord of your 8th, it can be a time when others finances are in disarray. Not the best time to ask for a loan, as the interest may be too high.
If lord of your 9th, love may be found while traveling abroad but there can be obstacles to overcome. Can indicate the start of a long distance relationship. Relationships with foreigners may feel awkward.
If lord of your 10th, others may be jealous of your success, or you may be jealous of others success. Sometimes indicates that someone stands in the way of your career progress.
If lord of your 11th, sometimes indicates socially awkward circumstances and odd behavior from others.
If lord of your 12th, you may feel like retreating with someone you love to more peaceful surroundings. Sometimes indicates the start clandestine romances (that there needs to be secrecy due to an affair or that others wouldn't approve of it for another reason).
