With Venus square Mars, the native’s emotions and passions need controlling; the animalistic self needs taming. This individual can be cruel and ruthless if the Mars is dominantly placed and/or is of a lower martial type. There is a conflict between passion and love. In a female’s chart, she might have strife from her man; in a man’s chart his female will give him trouble. There might even be reproductive issues. The native might feel suppressed by others, especially those who are significant to them; this is most prevalent in those who have Venus square Mars in mutable signs. This square is hardest to overcome in fixed signs. If placed in cardinal signs, the square can actually work the best, producing in the native more of an initiatory attitude.
