type of aspect:

A square is formed when planets are 90 degrees apart, creating a challenging angle that often results in tension and conflict. This aspect can force action through crisis or confrontation, pushing for resolution or change. While squares may indicate struggles or obstacles, they are also powerful motivators for growth and can help build resilience.


The Venus square Mars transit is a dynamic and tension-filled period that often highlights conflicts between the desires of the heart and the actions driven by will. This aspect creates a scenario where emotions and instincts are at odds, leading to potential discord in relationships and internal struggles concerning what we want versus what we are compelled to do. The energy is volatile, marked by a propensity for impulsive decisions, particularly in love and social interactions.

While Venus governs our values, pleasures, and affections, Mars rules our drive, aggression, and competitiveness. The square aspect, indicating a 90-degree angle, symbolizes a clash or a challenging interaction between these two planets. This can manifest as a tug-of-war between patience and impulsiveness, attraction and assertion, or harmony and conflict. It often raises issues around balancing individual desires with the needs of a relationship.
