Musings on Venus in Aries

What does it feel like for love to be in a hostile land? That’s Venus in Aries. That social, reasoning, consensus seeking, courteous planet in Aries is in a place where manners don’t matter.

Love becomes a challenge, a fight. Love that divides. Maybe you seek partners that see your love as a threat, or at the very least a challenge. Or maybe it’s you who recoils from intimacy. Just when your partner is vulnerable and receptive, you put up your dukes.

Venus in Aries could also be a love that separates one from their community. It could be a marriage that challenges cultural norms and the antagonism that brings to the relationship (or that the relationship brings to the community).

Venus in Aries is a consuming love., like the consuming fire of Mars. It’s a love that burns quickly and brightly, but just as soon fades. Love serves one’s need assert their individuality and will separate from the tribe.

Venus in Aries bonds with soldiers. It’s community in combat—cohorts of a revolutionary movement, banding together against a common enemy.

Where Venus seeks consensus via pathways to a common end, conscientiousness as the awareness of oneself within the context of others; Mars (ruler of Aries) abandons the middle line compelled to choose sides. Mars is self preservation and the will to live, the courage to deviate from the status quo. It’s the answer to the stagnation of contentment.

Venus in Aries brings the courage to take a risk for the common good. Who is willing to deviate from the consensus which has shown itself to be spoiled? Who will relieve the pressure of progress pressing against the complacency of comfort?
