VENUS SQUARE SATURN
This aspect is a seat of inner tensions. The tension of the square gives us motivation. Squares are dynamic aspects that give us the drive to succeed. What begins as an inner problem is overcome or accepted, and then becomes a door to understanding.
Venus rules Love, beauty and relationships, as well as aesthetic, artistic and romantic. Saturn rules stability and responsibility. It is also disciplined and cautious. Saturn rules the father, limitations and authority figures.
With this aspect there is difficulty being assertive in relationships. There is a fear of confrontation and shy away from emotional disputes. The problems may have started with a relationship with your parents, namely the father or a male authority figure. There may even be underlying issues with authority figures such as bosses, managers or anyone who tells you what to do. There is an automatic defensive posture or disposition.
As time passes there is a need to learn how to relate to other people. This aspect gives a firm foundation on which to form a committed and lasting relationship. Those with this aspect in their natal chart will likely form a committed relationship over age 40 because it will take a while to work through the authority figure issues (likely the father).
Those with this aspect in their natal chart have a really tough time believing they are Loved, not by just a partner, but anyone, including friends, family, parents . . . anyone! As a result, this is a typical placement for difficulties in committed and romantic relationships. Because of this, you may feel or choose to be left out of the mainstream of social life. There is a melancholy disposition resulting in extreme shyness thereby taking yourself out of the opportunity to meet new people. You may even have a formal and stiff manner of presenting yourself.
This aspect makes it hard to meet people half way, perhaps because of a fear rejection. The defensive posture must be overcome later in life once the authority figure issues have been working through. There is a high degree of tension and anxiety that makes it hard for you to relax.
More often than not, in order to compensate for a loss in feeling loved, there will be a romantic attraction to an older individual to make up for the loss in love from the questionable authority figure. This also makes one calculate their way to the top, in status, power, wealth and rank in society due to the Saturn influence. Affection is lacking and the emphasis is put on materialism in order to compensate. If the authority figure issue is not resolved, this can result in financial and material hardship because Venus is the ruler of self-worth, earned income, personal money and personal possessions. Unhappiness in relationships in often the result thereby fulfilling the individuals belief that they just aren't loved . . by anyone. While this is certainly not the case, it is certainly the belief and what one believes dictates the outcome.
