Mars and Venus Summary

The low scores on this combination are a little deceiving. Even without a birth time for either, we can see several positive connections between these two charts. Still, there are some real problems with this relationship. On a purely sexual level, it works well. Her earthy Virgo nature (Lively is also a Virgo by Sun sign) and his Scorpio placements seem made for each other. But on an emotional level, his expectations are much more complex and nuanced than hers. With Mars in Scorpio (and a Scorpio Sun) he is looking for a relationship that can become the center of his life and yet leaves him free to flirt with other possibilities. Her attitude toward romance doesn’t allow for such contradictions.

The main problem in this relationship is that both parties are easily distracted. In this regard, she will be more likely to roam than him, but neither will offer much resistance to the temptations that are certain to come their way. If this relationship endures it will be because of factors other than sexual and romantic compatibility.
