Venus opposite Mars

Venus Opposite Mars Natal

Being born with Venus in opposition to your natal Mars, you feel a dynamic tension within that leads you to learn powerful lessons about yourself through relationship struggles. You are learning how to assert your own needs and values while balancing the needs and values of those you relate with. This means learning how to maintain your sense of independence, creating time alone for restoration and rejuvenation, while also being able to acknowledge the other person’s needs. In this way, you will be able to embody the integrity of your own inner values without becoming overwhelmed by the values of those you are attracted to and admire. At the same time, your challenges within relationships will help you learn how to set aside your own needs at times when it’s more important to give others what they need. As you learn how to balance this, you will also develop your capacity to successfully express your values and fulfill your needs through societal structures and roles you take on within your community.
