Transiting Venus conjunct Natal Mars

This transit arouses a strong attraction to and desire for the opposite sex. You will be much more aggressive than usual in going out and finding a partner. This transit is often a sign of physical passion, and because Venus is acting upon Mars, rather than Mars upon Venus, the effect is to soften the nature of Mars and make you more willing to meet your partner's needs. Under this influence a sexual relationship is very satisfying to both of you.

Even without sex, you will be very happy with other people. You feel more vivacious and attractive than usual and may well be the life of the party. You will work hard to gain the approval of others under this transit, so strong is your need for affection.

Artistic activity is also indicated, for the general significance of this transdit is self-expression through creativity and love. Your ego drives are most readily satisfied by successfully relating to another, so you may seek out an entirely new person to begin a relationship with. But for the relationship to be significant in the long run, ther should be more indications than are provided by this one transit.

This transit favors love relationships and the formation of friendships. As with other Venus-Mars contacts, this one indicates a balance in your life between self-assertion and the need to relate to others. In a sexual relationship this balance is manifested by your ability to give and receive equally. In friendships you can be yourself without difficulty, and by being yourself you can get along better with your friends.

Creative activities are also favored by this transit. If you are not artistic, you may spend the day working to beautify your immediate surroundings.

Try to become involved in some kind of activity with others- a party, a night out on the town, or some such. This will give the energy of this transit an adequate outlet. The energy and liveliness that you have now will attract the people you want to attract, especially the opposite sex. you are likely to be in a fun-loving mood, and you will need company to make the most of it.

This transit may bring about financial opportunites, particularly for investment in a new and unique venture. Your own individuality is best expressed by getting involved, financially or emotionally, in projects that are different and innovative.

This transit usually arouses your interest in the opposite sex and contributes to the physical side of a sexual relationship. But its energy may cause discord, especially if there are hidden tensions in the relationship. A reasonably healthy relationship will have little difficulty during this transit.

One function of this transit can be to test a relationship to discover what eo tensions have been built into it. In the best relationships there will be a lot of love energy, to be released in whatever style pleases you and your lover. But if your relationship is in trouble, you will probably have arguments and other forms of discord, all arising from unexpressed sexuality.

The main difficulty of this transit is that the desire for a nice, easy relationship, as indicated by Venus, is sometimes hard to balance with the self-assertive, drive of Mars. Mars demands that it be satisfied in precisely the way that it wants, and this can be hard on a relationship. Obviously a spirit of compromise would help out immensely at this time, but the needs and demands of Mars can be urgent.

If you are not currently involved in a sexual relationship, you will probably be inordinately attracted to someone of the opposite sex, without being very discriminating. Therefore this is not the best transit under which to start a relationship, since it may be based only on physical attraction.

The effects of this transit can vary considerably, but it is generally favorable for most kinds of activity. You are able to assert yourself today so as to get what you want without offending anybody. People will appreciate that you have been direct without being abrasive or pugnacious. You want everyone to have the same freedom you have to go after their own objectives, and you are willing to help them as long as they will return the favor. There is an almost perfect balance now between your need to be an individual with individual wants and desires and your need to relate to others.

Of course, like all other Venus-Mars contacts, this transit is likely to arouse your sex drive, but in a somewhat gentler way than many of the other transits. You can charm the opposite sex by being genuinely friendly and agreeable, and you are concerned that your partner enjoy the relationship as much as you do, thereby fulfilling important requirements of a successful sexual relationship. A relationship begun under this transit has a good chance of lasting, but even a casual liaison will be satisfying and leave no bitterness when you separate. The action of this transit in your life assures that no one will be exploited now.

The normal effect of this transit is to stimulate sexual and creative energies. It can be good for a sexual relationship if things are generally going well and you both are able to achieve ample sexual gratification.

If this is not the case, there may be difficulties associated with this transit. On one hand, if serious problems are preventing ample sexual self-expression in this relationship, or if it is a nonsexual relationship with the opposite sex, there is likely be conflict between you. When the ego energy of Mars is not allowed to express itself sexually via Venus, it transmutes into conflict energy.

If one of you is not fulfilled in this relationship, again the Mars energy becomes transmuted into conflict energy or sexual expression is overwhelmed by the selfishness of one person.

If you have no ongoing sexual relationship, you can expect to be attracted sexually to almost anyone you encounter. Be careful of a new relationship that starts under transit, because you may be seeking a sexual outlet with little regard for other areas of compatibility. Do not make a commitment until the relationship has proved itself.

For persons involved in creative arts or crafts, this is a good transit for completing work that gives you plenty of room for self-expression.
