Astrological Love Compatibility: Mars & Venus, Sun & Moon

When it comes to deep and devoted relationships, the way any love relationship is portrayed, we always have to be aware of the basic energy distribution. Male and female polarities are powerfully attracted toward each other and this is the case in any type of romantic bond, whether this involves heterosexual or LGBTQ couples. One side is dominantly male and the other carries the female essence.

The Universal Polarity

This is  the perfect moment to look at the famous yin/yang symbol . It is usually presented as a circle with one white side and one black side. But in the middle of the white side there is a black dot, while on the black side there is a white dot. This symbol represents literally everything in this Universe, including human psychology and, of course,  love. Each of us has some male and some female characteristics, and the more we act  on just one side of those two energies, the more we protect the hidden dot of the opposite quality in us.

You have probably seen  Zumba or ballet classes, and perhaps noticed that there are lots of girls doing the exercises, but among the crowd there will also be one or few guys with them too. Something very similar happens all the time during martial arts training. A lot of guys and behind them, one, two or a few girls. The stronger the energy is in the environment, the faster the appearance of the opposite force will show.  Many men will “invite” or attract a female person to spend some time with them in this manner, and many women will attract a man who is inclined to join in their activities.

Sun and Mars  represent the male principles, however, bear in mind that each one of us has all the celestial bodies written in the natal chart. In this way, Sun and Mars in a male chart can play the protective and providing roles, but the position of his natal Venus and Moon will show what kind of a woman he will be attracted to. In general terms, if his Venus or Moon is placed in the fire signs, he will love “fiery”, strong  women. The earth quality of his female planets will indicate that he will fall for a practical and materially secure woman, while the air position of his Venus or Moon, will show that communication and easygoingness in your demeanor will lead him to approach you. Watery female planets, like Venus or Moon placed in the signs of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, draw men toward sensual and mysterious girls. Couples can be imagined like molecules which are composed of atoms strongly attached by invisible forces. These  are the forces of planets projecting inside of each one of us.

The Eternal Dance Between Mars and Venus Impacts Love Compatibility

When we were born the position of the planets shaped our character and appearance, according to astrology. Of course, this is also related to our particular genetic inheritance, because you can’t expect to have deep blue eyes and blond hair like a person born at the same time in Sweden for instance, if you were born in Kenya or China, but your energetic aura will be almost identical with that person. And you also have to consider your gender, because the male body produces way more “male hormones”, especially testosterone, while the female’s body is prone to producing estrogen, speaking in general terms. 

There are other important differences also, but let’s not dive too deeply into biology right now. And let’s keep in mind that Mars and Sun will be considered as the masculine celestial energies, while Venus and Moon will be referred to as the feminine energies.

Mars is the action that drives us, regardless of our gender. He is the fire of mental power, metabolic process, red blood cells and our sexual desire. On the other hand, Venus represents our capacity and quality of pleasure, skin, kidneys, thyroid gland, our beauty and joy. Mars and Venus rule opposite signs in pairs, Aries and Libra, which indicates the struggle between “me” or “myself” and “us”. And on the physical level this is the head and the kidneys connection indicating blood pressure needed for the continuous life force in each being. The other astrological pair is Taurus/Scorpio and they represent the territory and the force needed to fight for or to protect this territory. And on the physical level Taurus is the symbol for the thyroid gland which governs all other hormonal functions, while  Scorpio is the sign of the genital and excretory organs.

The first pair of signs operates with pursuing and gaining the psychological territory, while the other one is responsible for keeping the fire of passion alive ensuring wealth and progeny in the future of a couple. Now, it’s easy to understand that without the connection between Mars and Venus a love relationship can’t even start, because, as we all know, relationships are not based just on sex, but if sexual experience is weak or simply nonexistent, this couple can’t survive. The better option in this case is simply being friends.

Generally speaking, the best matching in astrology happens when the planets Mars and Venus form a trine, a sextile or a conjunction when you look at both charts at the same time, which is known as a synastry in astrology.

For instance, if his Mars is placed in Aries and her Venus is in Leo or in the sign of Sagittarius, then the sexual experience will be powerful and memorable. He will tend to show off with his passion, while she will enjoy with all of her heart and mind, feeling like his queen or his muse, depending on those two fiery signs, Leo and Sagittarius. While the fire signs, mentioned before, will express their power and passion, the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn will find their pleasure in the safety and financial security that this relationship is able to provide for them. Air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will enjoy easygoing intimacy, often spiced with conversation, while the water signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will dive deep into  private experiences bonding them with the hidden needs of their souls. Those relationships are also very good for practicing any spiritual sexual traditions as well.

Tense aspects (like squares or opposites) between Mars and Venus combined in the charts of partners will bring passion too. However, something will be off in this case. Sexual desire might be strong in the beginning in one partner, and then just disappear when the other partner is truly ready and hot. Or this could also manifest as some sort of aggression or an obstacle to the preferred styles of making love. In any case, contacts between Mars and Venus are necessary if you want something more than just a friendship, but they will also indicate  possible mismatching if the aspects are tense or negative.

In the case that the female’s Mars is dominant and makes a direct aspect toward the male’s Venus, this means the female partner will initiate physical intimacy and be the leading force during intimacy. If the other aspects are supportive, this can be excellent for the couple, but if they are not, the female will feel exhausted or even unloved, in the long run.

The same aspect structure applies for the position of the Sun and Moon in the partners’ charts.  However, in this case we have to be aware that contacts between Mars and Venus will ensure passion, but this doesn’t guarantee that this relationship will turn into something more than a brief romance or even a one-night-stand.

If you want something stable, devoted and truly supportive when it comes to your relationship, then you have to know how the position of your natal Moon and Sun influences the position of your partner’s natal Moon and Sun. Have in mind that Sun is the vital force in each of us, our ego and our pride, while the Moon represents our emotions. Matching man’s pride with woman’s emotions is the perfect union and the same goes for the opposite case.

Her natal Moon in the fire signs will complement his Sun placed in those signs also (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) by creating the conjunction or a trine aspect. The same goes for air, water or earth types of placements. Friction between a couple will be shown if his natal Sun forms the square aspect with her Moon or Sun. For instance, her natal Moon is in Leo, but his natal Sun is in Scorpio or Taurus, then her desires and his ability to lead and provide will differ greatly.

Opposition might be positive or negative depending upon other aspects, but this indicates a strong attraction for sure.

And when it comes to matching hers and his natal Moon solely, it’s always best when a man has his Moon placed a few zodiac signs before her, because this will indicate that he can understand and protect her feelings. If the situation is opposite, then she might start behaving like a motherly figure in his life, which is not such a good thing for a relationship between lovers.

All other planets and their contacts in the charts of partners are important, because they will add a lot of useful information about the levels of communication, spiritual and financial growth of a couple, but the relations between Sun and Moon, and Mars and Venus are essential if you want to achieve a strong, devoted and long-lasting, yet passionate and pleasurable relationship which will help you evolve as human beings and grow together.
