Venus in Gemini, Mars in Scorpio

Although you’re the type to enjoy a lighthearted “good time” and may even express your deepest feelings in the form of anecdotes,  if someone were to delve into your interior just a little bit more, they would see that it’s not all adolescent giggles and midnight games of scrabble.

You value variety, but depth is pursued in a fervent, almost “do or die” fashion. Once you get your emotional energy swirling behind a cause (especially love or lust), all bets are off.

You have the potential to relate to others with a dexterity which disarms them, but you don’t stop there. In fact, this is only a means to explore the gloss of the surface before diving into deep waters. Once you’ve arrived you like to penetrate and be penetrated : spiritually, physically, psychologically and emotionally.

One may get the idea that you’re footloose and fancy free because you seem to navigate life with such aplomb, but what they may not see unless they get extremely close to you is your craving for intensity. What people fail to understand about you is that you view sex as just one of the many vehicles that can be used to explore and solidify a deeper connection with another human being. So, your true reasons for engaging in the throes of intimacy are often at variance with what others expect.

Your psychological makeup could be compared to a burner on a stove that doesn’t turn orange when it warms up, so people try to touch you and get scorched because they had NO IDEA you were so hot.

You need your privacy, but in order to remain true to yourself, it’s important that you cultivate the ability to make your deepest needs known to others. Learning the difference between strategic self-protection and deception is part of your life’s work.

Your sword can cut both ways through verbal confrontation and strategic precisely timed action.

Contained in this Venus/Mars combination is the potential for swift and clever mental dexterity which is illustrated by the mutable energy of Virgo and Gemini. Elementally, the practicality and common sense of earth and the curiosity and experimental bent of air are attempting to adjust to one another in a developmentally tense relationship.

In synthesis, there’s a marked efficiency in relationships which tends toward compartmentalization. One knows exactly the specific purpose that people serve in their lives. In fact, one may maintain friendships where all of the people involved rarely intersect.  For you, discrimination is simply the need to be selective in your socialization with others, always keeping the motivations of bettering one’s life and standing in mind.

Your intellect is your “sword” which cuts both ways. Its “incisions” can add important details which are vital to the success of others. Adding the enjoyment of service, you become a trusted support system that’s the epitome of reliability.

On the flip side, the same skill can be directed toward “analyzing” with the intent of criticism aimed at undermining the self-esteem and confidence of others. One may seriously want to take note of the concept of  projection here, as to remind yourself that it’s quite alright to treat yourself fairly in the midst of being a flawed human being.

There can be an over-analysis of one’s emotions which can repress or inhibit the heart function.  Irrespective of the feeling, the practice of giving oneself permission to stop and experience emotions for exactly what they are is invaluable.

Erotic urges typically begin in a cerebral fashion through stimulating debate and conversation and it’s important to know that mere physicality won’t sustain your sense of sexual excitement for long.

With this Venus/Mars combination in mind, we immediately delve into the world of feelings, emotions, relational security and ideals.

The application of will is directed toward harmonizing and developing rapport. With a Venus sign ruled by the Moon and a Mars sign ruled by Venus, there’s an appreciation of sentimentality, affection, and the smaller, yet more intimate gestures which bring us  closer to another human being. The ability to Intuit and just “remember” the preferences and needs of the “other” is highly pronounced.

For an individual with this cosmic makeup, emotional safety is about establishing avenues of trust and creating a safe haven where one can bear intimate feelings without being judged, ridiculed, threatened or manipulated. To engage in a mutual effort (teamwork) to help something grow, whether it’s a relationship or business partnership is a major part of this person’s life’s work.

There is a natural dynamic tension with this blend which can be illustrated by a person constantly having to adjust their approach to people because they struggle, due to sensitivity, with how to deliver feedback which may “upset the apple cart”. While they would like things to remain safe, there is a heavy burden of guilt should they become dishonest.

An important lesson is that one can’t be fearful of their own transparency as it undermines the true kindness which needs to be the foundation of all of their important relationships.

You can’t just brush your instincts to the side while grappling to find a more “cerebral” explanation.

A fair question may be:

What happens when you have to express certain thoughts and feelings to your partner that may upset the equilibrium in the relationship? 

Sexually, there’s an expectation of coziness and private lust. What excites you is to “flip through” a portfolio containing a juicy gamut of feelings in service of a complete experience. There’s an emphasis on shared enjoyment and “returning the favor” in the name of true partnership. The erotic produces an emotional charge.

For you to be fulfilled, your emotions must link up with your ideals.

Here, we have the valuing of all that’s ethereal blended with a passion for ideals. A portrait of an individual with Venus in Pisces and Mars in Libra would be painted with idealism of the highest order and an uncanny ability to see the best in other people and life in general.

A pronounced sense of universality permeates the psyche, where one would rather create bridges than borders. To some, it’s fascinating that the things which bring you the most joy are those which can’t be measured or have a boundless scope.

Your power of attraction lies in the unconditional acceptance of others and a passion for justice. Some of your wishes for humanity are: that they’re treated fairly, and that they receive copious amounts of peace and love in their lives.

Difficulty arises for you when your lenses become too rose colored for your own good. You suffer mainly because there’s an inclination to create the version of reality which produces the least amount of pain, and when you do that, there are no clear warning signals of the danger which has firmly copped a squat on your front porch.

There’s a tremendous amount of energy which is applied to maintaining your personal relationships, and rightfully so. In fact, you have a special talent for meeting your true desires through the actions of others.

People seem to naturally WANT to do things for you, and you have a way of appealing to the self-interest of others with charm and diplomacy. If there’s going to be any type of fight on your watch, it will be one against outward displays of coarseness and ugliness in personal behavior.

It needs to be noted, however that there are costs to pay for the “peace at any price” philosophy and those charges manifest for you largely on an internal level.

Although you feel that harmonizing may be your best option, you can easily create a bottleneck for your true feelings which feels like an emotional traffic jam. As a result, you develop animosity for whomever or whatever is in question, and that very peace that you were seeking to preserve morphs to a passive aggressive state, like the person at the office who sends the snide e-mails with smiley faces at the end.  In this state, your words are conveying one thing while your actions are speaking loudly and clearly in a contradictory fashion.

To truly reach your calling, both your Venus and Mars principles need to be honored. So, it’s important that you own your desires while also understanding the manner in which you need to apply your energies to obtain them.

In relationships, you have the potential to be a TRUE partner who offers emotional support and empathy. Even in times of conflict, a “fair fight” is important to you, and it’s wise to realize that conflict isn’t a dirty word and facing it squarely without avoidance can often bring you to a deeper place which is complete with a  greater degree of understanding  between your partner and yourself.

One of your challenges is addressing the theme of self-sacrifice in love. When it comes to healthy compromises that you make as a partner, this can breathe life-giving elixir into relationships. On the flip side it’s important to realize that there are no gold medals for martyrdom and no parades for the long-suffering.

Equating how much and how often you volunteered yourself for unequal treatment with loving another can be unhealthy and emotionally deceiving. Conversely, judging another person’s love for you by how much they’re willing to give up can be equally problematic.

At best, you beautify the world around you through your commitment to an all embracing love that few people, in comparison, ever get the opportunity to experience. You’re a unifier, clever strategist and true champion of justice. At worst, you become perpetually frustrated because you avoid the voice which prompts you to address challenges with other people directly, which dishonors your emotional needs and volunteers you for taking whatever another person thinks that you deserve.

Astrologically speaking, whenever Venus and Mars are involved, themes of the archetypal feminine and masculine rise to the surface. It’s to be emphasized that the feminine and masculine are general principles rather than gender specific.

We could say that the masculine is the driving and asserting part of us while the feminine is the yielding, flowing and collaborating one.

With this Sun-ruled combination of Venus and Mars in Leo, we automatically veer into the lane which concerns itself with gaining a sense of validation and specialness in one’s relationships as well as devising a fruitful strategy for applying one’s energy into the world in a manner which promises an opportunity for heightened creative self-expression.

One of the questions that emerges from this Venus & Mars combination is:

How can I align my personal values and relationships with my need to assert myself creatively and apply those gifts to my worldly pursuits?

One of the traps or dysfunctions of this combination can be the failure to make the distinction between when one is being and “performing.”

Where ‘being’ is a natural state the act of ‘performing’ suggests a need to be “on” for whomever or whatever is in question, whether it’s an intimate partner, family member or boss. In having this combination, one must be careful about using the reaction of others (whether positive or negative) as a barometer for one’s own worth or self-esteem.

If this is carried too far, there’s the danger of continuously seeking out the company of those who simply “make you feel good” about yourself without questioning what other redeeming value they have in your life.

Furthermore, one must avoid being overly invested in gaining and maintaining the admiration of others or allowing the concerns surrounding if people “like what they see” to debilitate one’s creative juices or risk-taking capacity.

If navigated successfully, the sheer solar energy can help carry your efforts forward in a fashion where you don’t have to continuously ask others: “how does this light make me look.?”

The fact that this combination, and all of the potentials included,  is your birthright matters more than anything that anyone else would have to say about it.

 

Venus in Sagittarius, Mars in Virgo

With this Venus/Mars combination at the helm, questions immediately arise regarding wise and discriminate use of one’s energy in reference to the ideals which they espouse. A vast appetite for personal growth is evident. There’s the thought that the “bigger” you allow yourself to be, the better.

However, concerns should be raised as to your overall level of effectiveness in your pursuits. Does your actual efficiency and production match the grandeur of your aspirations? Your bow and arrow requires precise direction, as you don’t want to be stuck on a rudderless ship with nothing but “good intentions.”

Also, it’s important for you to understand that your plan doesn’t have to be perfect in order to execute it. Your capacity to act and adjust to changing circumstances coupled with your faith is enough to get you moving. From there, you’re charged with making steady improvements.

There’s a natural square relationship between the signs of Sagittarius and Virgo which means that there’s tension present with their interaction. To navigate this terrain, pursuing constant refinement of the specific parts while never losing sight of the holistic view, is the path of development.

While your relational urges can be both expansive and hedonistic, you’re offered an anchor to ground you and enhance your staying power. One of the most valuable lessons you can learn is the dignity of finishing what you start. In doing this, your free-spirit is satiated because you’re using your freedom in a way which liberates you even more versus promoting unhealthy and overindulgent scenarios.

With this Venus/Mars combination, freedom and variety is as essential to you as oxygen. The question you will have to ask yourself is freedom for what? There’s no doubt that relationships serve you as a  source of unlimited information and intellectual stimulation. You also seek to apply what you learn in a larger context; through some all-encompassing philosophical system which provides you with more clues about what life ultimately means.

When you came to this planet, a one-dimensional experience is certainly what you DIDN’T have in mind.

Whether you’re getting your passport stamped or heavily immersed in a great work of literature, traveling is essential for you. Both your relationships and sex life need to be immersed in this theme.

No adventure and diversity might as well be a “bored to death” sentence for you, as this blend suggests a need to explore duality and a quest for a lightness and buoyancy of being.

Yes… you may be floating along with youthful exuberance, but let’s not mistake that for naiveté, as you have the potential to assert the force of your being as connected to high-minded principles, especially honesty and ethical behavior as it applies to your intimate relationships.

Maybe the lesson which you have to learn with this blend is: there can be just as much variety in getting to know a few people deeply as flitting two and fro from one relatively superficial encounter to the next.

In your life and relationships you’ll find that the more you explore, the more questions arise, so be prepared to understand that just when you think you have the ultimate answer or truth, a few more of them reveal themselves and you have to re-work the puzzle we know as life.

If you’re able to use your flexibility to adapt to that type of “weather”, you will find that you’re able to make your home anywhere and enjoy the here and now of your relationships and maintain your sense of wonder which so rightly permeates your DNA.

Venus in Sagittarius, Mars in Leo

Your  Venus/Mars blend suggests an enjoyment of life that is nothing short of beaming.

Seeking to elevate your relationships, philosophical pondering with the one that you love is a requirement. This can take place thousands of miles away from home, or inside a studio apartment. The freedom to learn and explore life in all of its facets connects to a healthy sense of self-esteem, along with a drive toward unique self-expression  and creation through the force of your personality. There’s a genuine love for expansive ideas and lofty ideals, which when pursued, can help you gain attention from others.

You value what you can’t see with your eyes and you also sense subtle music which all of us can’t hear.

Like water, you’re adaptable and you can take on the shape of  whatever “container” you happen to be dealing with at the time, whether it’s a job, friendship or intimate relationship. Adaptability is one of your reigning strengths.

However, what you often experience is a conflict between empathy, i.e. walking in the shoes of others, and taking action which promotes your self-interest.  Your life questions center around whether you should be the “supportive one”, or passionately champion your own independence. You may find in time that your energy expenditure is most fruitful in developing your individuality, so you have more to give to another person. After all, you find your relational needs to be connected to merging and sharing mutual sensitivity.

A spiritual connection means a lot to you, but you’re also no stranger to the deep thrusts and eroticism, which you integrate into the whole. For you,  love should be gentle, but a little tinge of pain never hurt anyone, either.

So, in essence, your Mars/Venus blend is about the themes of not so much changing your shape to fit every container, but creating a container which is flexible and can accommodate your unfolding as a human being. You might even find that you need more than one container, or that there needs to be several. So what?

When it comes to flowing with the current of life, your potential is evident. Applying yourself toward pioneering courageous approaches to the expression of your “vibe” is also right up your alley.

You can relate with a subtlety which is adept, yet act swiftly. Both peace and passion are your birthright.
