In your view, how important is it for a man’s Mars and a woman’s Venus to be compatible in order to have a strong & healthy relationship? Do you often notice good relationships that lack this particular aspect?
This is an interesting question. People are varied as to their wants and needs, I don’t think there is a simple answer here. I’d not not get fixated on a single aspect.
I think this would be a nice aspect to have but it’s not necessary. As an example, my husband’s Mars does not aspect my Venus at all. However, my Mars trines his Venus. This is not equivalent but it’s sufficient!
To answer your second question, I do see good relationships that lack this aspect. But realize a person or a couple may define “strong & healthy relationship” in ways you’d never dream of.
Take this on a case by case basis. If it’s important to you that his thrust (Mars) tweaks her Venus, then you’d want to see this in the synastry. But people are stimulated in a variety of ways. Mentally, for example. And some prefer very little stimulation! They want space more than anything else!
Is there a Venus/Mars aspect in your relationship? How does it play?
