Venus and Mars Combinations

Romantic & Sexual Styles


  What are the signs of Venus and Mars in your natal chart? Venus-Mars combinations tell a lot about a person's romantic and sexual style.

Each Venus-Mars combination is interpreted in terms of elements (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) and is then refined in terms of signs. Thus Venus in Aries (a Fire sign) and Mars in Taurus (an Earth sign), for example, will have the same elemental interpretation as Venus in Leo (a Fire sign) and Mars in Capricorn (an Earth sign). Note that some interpretations are forthcoming.

Venus in Aries, Mars in Capricorn

Your Venus is in a Fire sign and your Mars is in an Earth sign.

Venus in Fire, Mars in Earth (Romantic Fire, Earthy Desires): On romantic and social levels, you are spontaneous and fiery. Sexually, you are more sensual and slow-moving.  You willingly take the lead in matters of the heart, and you look for a partner who is exciting, original, and passionate.  You are probably easier to please on a sexual level than on a romantic level. Romantically speaking, you love the chase and the conquest.  Sexually speaking, you are rather content and even traditional.  Although passionate and sexual, you are also quite independent and you're not one to want to cuddle the night away. You need your space! Subtlety may be lacking in your sexual expression at times. You can be surprisingly blunt in your approach to love. Your needs for both spontaneity and forethought in relationships may seem conflicting—and at times this will be a challenge. However, if you can maintain a relationship that is secure and adventurous at the same time, you will be at your happiest.

Venus and Mars in signs that are square: Your romantic needs and sexual needs are quite different, and this presents a constant struggle for you. When you feel satisfied emotionally and romantically (when you feel most loved), you cannot help but feel a lack on an instinctual level--and vice versa. You may be a tad argumentative in close partnership as a result of this basic inner conflict. You can also be very reactive in your relationships, and this can mean you end up acting in a way that is not in your own best interest! You tend to easily pass from love to hate and vice versa in your love life. Essentially, your love nature is passionate.

More specifically: Venus in Aries, Mars in Capricorn: This is an interesting combination. With Venus in Aries, love, romance, and sex are important to feed your ego and to give you the feeling of being alive and vital. With Mars in Capricorn, a sense of security as well as regular sexual satisfaction drive you. What is most intriguing (or baffling) about this combination is the fact that you can be completely optimistic when it comes to matters of the heart one day, and then entirely pessimistic--even self-defeating--the next. Part of you feels you deserve love, and another part of you doesn't. You are not afraid of challenges when it comes to love--in fact you may be drawn to them.

Some Famous People with this Combination: Shakira, Lady Gaga, Mia Farrow, Bob Marley.
