Mars/Venus Couples: Part Oneanistonandtherouximage

I thought it might be interesting to do a Mars and Venus Compatibility Analysis for some couples that are currently in the news.

Let’s start with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux.

Justin Theroux, born August 10, 1971 with Mars in Aquarius and Venus in Leo: The Grand Liberator.  (To see a chart for Justin Theroux charted for noon, click here.)

Jennifer Aniston, born Feb. 11, 1969, Los Angeles, CA with Mars in Scorpio and Venus in Aries: The Pushy Powerhouse of Passion. (To see the horoscope of Jennifer Aniston, click here.)

His Venus in Leo with Her Venus in Aries
Relationship between Zodiac Signs— Trine (implies cooperation)
This is a natural combination. Love is an adventure for her. For him it’s a chance to be creative. These two people will have a lot of fun together. The only thing they may disagree on is who is actually in charge in the relationship. Neither likes to take orders.
Love Factor (1 to 10) = 10

His Mars in Aquarius with Her Mars in Scorpio
Relationship between Zodiac Signs— Square (implies a conflict)
Both of these people have strong and very different opinions about sex. He is an idealist who prefers the idea of passion to its physical manifestation. She is sees sex as a means of plumbing the depths of the soul. On the positive side, both are serious about relationships and commitment.
Lust Factor (1 to 10) = 4

His Mars in Aquarius with Her Venus in Aries
Relationship between Zodiac Signs –Sextile (implies cooperation)
He will find her boldness and sense of adventure thrilling. She will respect his intellectual approach to sex and take comfort in his wisdom and the solidity of his ideals. She will fire him up. He will calm her down
Love Factor (1 to 10) = 9
Lust Factor (1 to 10) = 7

His Venus in Leo with Her Mars in Scorpio
Relationship between Zodiac Signs – square (implies conflict)
At times his devotion to pleasure will strike her as self-serving and shallow. He will wonder why she is always looking for an ulterior motive. These are two intensely passionate people but a lot of the passion will be expended in fighting over their different views of sex and love.
Love Factor (1 to 10) = 3
Lust Factor (1 to 10) = 8

Total Love Factor (1 to 30) = 21
Total Lust Factor (1 to 30) = 19

Mars and Venus Summary

This relationship is also an example of the “opposites attract principle.” Theroux was born with the Sun in Leo and Aniston is an Aquarian by Sun sign so, even without Mars and Venus, there is a great deal of tension drawing these people together and the same time pushing them apart.

If these two people were in the 20s I would predict a passionate beginning to the relationship that would slowly simmer down into a massive and protracted battle of wills. However, since these are both people in their 40s and hopefully have a better knowledge of themselves and a more mature attitude toward life in general, I think that there is reason to be optimistic. As long as they treat their differences with respect and neither tries to remake the other, the mutual passion that is at the heart of this relationship should carry the day.

This is not to say there won’t be conflict. Fixed signs predominate in this combination and that means strong opinions and a resistance to change. However, once Fixed sign people get beyond the issue of who’s the boss, they can settle into solid, long-standing relationships. Loyalty is another feature of Fixed sign people and with this loyalty and a basis of respect, the fights can become just a way of breaking up the monotony.


Remember, a Mars and Venus Compatibility Analysis only gives us general information on how individuals in a relationship relate to one another on a romantic and sexual level. For a deeper and more specific analysis of compatibility we need to compare the complete horoscopes (charted for the day, time and place of birth) of both parties.
