VENUS MIDPOINT & ASPECT
Midpoint combinations are the combination of a midpoint and a (hard) aspect with a third party (a planet, a light, the Node, Ascendant or Midheaven). For example: when there is a hard aspect (45, 90, 135 or 180d) with the point between Sun and Venus, there is a midpoint combination of Sun/Venus with the planet or position in aspect.
Aspect combinations are the combination of aspects between three objects (planet, light, angle, Node). An aspect is not a ‘stand alone’ and belongs to the bigger picture of the chart. When you learn how to mix the aspects, you are a step further on the way to reading charts.
Here are possible answers to the question: What does it mean when Venus is part of an aspect combination of three or of a midpoint combination? The interpretations on this site are based on years of study. After years of studying astrology I read the Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin (and advice you to do the same) and then I tested many, many charts. Then, in April 2007, I wrote AstroTrio (combinations of midpoints and aspects) in Dutch. I translated part of that book in English and published some of it on Astropost. This is a collection of blogs on Astropost.blogspot.com about midpoint- and aspect combinations with Venus, added with the information needed to complete the list of all possible midpoint-and aspect combinations with Venus. BTW: there is an article about Sun/Moon and AC/MC-combinations, too. Continue for the index or read on...

I About Venus/Node/AC, Venus/Node/MC, Venus/AC/MC
Venus is the symbol of love, beauty and art. Any combination with Venus refers to style, taste, desires, charm, diplomacy and cultural level. Venus is also the symbol of the skin, the kidneys and hormones. The interpretations on this site are not related to health issues.
A Venus, Sun and a third party
It is the combination of the art of living, the desire to live in peace and being charming in heart and soul (because you want to be loved and probably ARE). Love and style will be in the spotlights.
(see for more: http://astropost.blogspot.com/2011/04/sunmoonvenus-midpoint-combinations.html)
When Sun/Mercury is mixed with Venus grace, style and beauty are added to expressing the opinion or view. You easily get contact with others and this might lead to marrying young. This combination of Sun/Mercury/Venus is very frequent and not all of the persons with this combination in the natal chart will become a writer. But they all communicate in a nice manner.
Sun/Venus in hard aspect with Mars: that is a combination for highlighted passion, art and love. Both Paris Hilton and Paul McCartney have Sun conjunct Venus/Mars: that is another way to make a Sun/Venus/Mars midpoint combination.
Sun/Venus in hard aspect with Jupiter is the privilige of the lucky guy or girl: either in love or in art. Examples: Peter Paul Rubens (Venus conjunct Sun/Jupiter) and Brad Pitt (Jupiter square Sun/Venus) or Dutch Queen Beatrix who is a privileged person and a sculptor and has Sun/Venus/Jupiter combinations 3 times together with a conjunction of Sun, Venus and Jupiter. Sun/Venus/Jupiter makes you see the benefits of style and life is a celebration.
There must be ‘another side of the coin’ for Brad Pitt, because he doesn’t only have a Sun/Venus/Jupiter-combination. He also has a Sun/Venus/Saturn combination! His Venus is conjunct Sun/Saturn. Linda Lovelace’s chart has Venus semi square Sun/Saturn.
This is the combination that shows you the limitations of love life and style and makes cautious in love (and art) because of earlier separations. With Sun-Venus-Saturn 'keeping up appearances in love life' might be one of the possible ways to read this midpoint combination.
Sun/Venus with Uranus is very stimulating for an artist and produces a hectic love life. Tension goes together with the latest styles. Victoria Beckham has Venus sesquisquare Sun/Uranus. She is in the news often because of her husband’s supposed to be love adventures. In the C-rated chart of Astrodatabank, her Venus is trine Ascendant and sesquisquare Uranus, to illustrate the fact that she is a good looking woman. For more about Venus-Uranus, use the link.
Sun/Venus with Neptune is for the romantic person or talented artist. This combination adds fantasy and dreams to the love life and life style. Karel Appel had Sun semi square Venus/Neptune, for example. Venus-Neptune is part of the pattern of artistic talents in a chart. See my blog Art&Astrology for more examples of the pattern.
Sun/Venus with Pluto is an intense combination for love: it is all or nothing and there also may be money issues. With this combination your qualities to earn money might be highlighted, too. Sometimes Sun/Venus/Pluto mirrors a dramatic love life. Paul McCartney has Sun conjunct Venus/Pluto.
Venus/Pluto intensifies desires and wishes ('to have to have') and (with other indications) reflects special talents. Read more about Venus/Pluto on Astromarkt.
Sun/Venus with Node is reflecting the shared joy of life, the diplomat and the beloved family or company of nice and talented people. It is likely that someone with this combination will do anything to improve the atmosphere and enjoy life together. Prince Charles has Northern Node opposition Sun/Venus.
Sun/Venus with Ascendant wants to make the world look better. Francisco Goya used art to do so. He had Ascendant square Sun/Venus.
Sun/Venus with Midheaven might have a professional career in art, as an artist, or related to love and beauty, just like movie star Monique van de Ven with Sun semi square Venus/Midheaven.

B Venus with Moon and a third party
Moon/Venus is the midpoint of feeling good, nice habits and modern style. Any aspect with Moon and Venus or the midpoint Moon/Venus tells us something more about that. The Moon/Venus midpoint might be hit when you fall in love or give birth or sense the good sides of family life. Moon/Venus is also part of the pattern of artistic talents. Having sense of esthetics and style surely will help you to create a product that people will like to buy or see. However, afflictions between Moon and Venus may cause problems for women when it comes to play the female role in life's theatre. Marilyn Monroe had Moon semi sesquisquare (67.5d) Venus, afflicted by Saturn and Neptune. The combinations Moon/Venus/Saturn and Moon/Venus/Neptune happen to be the less pleasant combinations with Moon/Venus.
Moon/Mercury/Venus enabled Ronald Reagan to pleasantly communicate with women.
Moon/Venus/Mars creates a passionate trio. This trio urges you to hurry up when giving birth and in a natal chart this combination shows a need for passion. Perhaps this is the combination for puppy love and early experiences with the other gender.
Moon/Venus/Jupiter might make you very popular. Women will support you and when you fall in love it will be with a great person. If you consider a lot of children as a demonstration of happy love life, you will have many children. But only if you want them!:) My examples are famous:
a. Prince William with an almost exact Moon/Venus semi square Jupiter. He is very popular.
b. Pim Fortuyn, the murdered Dutch (homosexual) politician whose funeral was attended by hundreds of thousands of people along the road had Moon/Venus sesquisquare Jupiter.
c. The combination might point at successes in art, for artists like Peter Paul Rubens (who also shaped his women the Jupiter-way).
This midpoint combination might also point at the reason for the popularity: being very well mannered, polite and always in style.
Moon/Venus/Saturn does the opposite of what Mars does. Saturn slows you down. Saturn creates limitations and restrictions. Venus Frigida, that is Moon/Venus/Saturn...With this combination you might have a habit of breaking hearts, just because of cold feet. With this combination you have to learn to limit your desires, like the (very bad) example: Paul Bernardo, whose Saturn is semi square Moon/Venus. Of course, Paul Bernardo is not a normal person.
The combination is also mirroring unhappy (or should I say: unlucky) women.
Recent example 1: Anne Sinclair (wife of Dominique Strauss-Kahn) has a Scorpio Moon square Saturn and inconjunct Venus. The bad experiences in love happened in the past few weeks. Her Moon/Venus is semi square Sun. Strauss-Kahn is her second husband (she has Venus conjunct Uranus in Gemini -double bodied sign- in the seventh house). Here is the chart with the (still) dificult transits for June 1: T Neptune square Ascendant, T Node inconjunct Sun, T Jupiter inconjunct Mars and T Saturn conjunct Neptune.
It must be hard to be involved with a man who is taken into custody after being accused of violating a woman, even if you believe in him.
The second recent example is Maria Shriver, who discovered that her husband had a child with the housekeeper. Her Moon/Venus midpoint is semi square Saturn and transit Saturn is now in hard aspect with her Ascendant.
Moon/Venus/Uranus accelerates feelings of sympathy and love. This combination might lead to juvenile pregnancy or giving birth too soon or surgery when giving birth. The other side is a great sense of style and rhythm. Beauty surgery, too. Kim Novak has Uranus square Moon/Venus in her birth chart.
Moon/Venus/Neptune: the women adore you and you are likely to disappoint some of them. You could be an artist. See Art&Astrology for dozens of examples. Here are a few more:
1. Julian Assange has the midpoint Moon/Venus square Neptune (see: http://astropost.blogspot.com/2010/12/julian-assange-mars-in-aquarius.html and http://astropost.blogspot.com/2010/12/similarities-of-charts-of-bradley.html )
2. John F. Kennedy had Moon exactly square Venus and semi square Neptune. The midpoint Moon/Venus was conjunct Neptune.
Moon/Venus/Pluto: intense and sometimes painful experiences in love and/or a habit of earning money. Francisco Goya had Pluto opposition Moon/Venus. Ronald Reagan had Venus square Moon/Pluto.
Moon/Venus/Node loves family meetings and nice (female) company.
Moon/Venus/Ascendant is the key to being 'beloved' or lovable and to presenting yourself as a nice person. Men with this combination have a lot of women around (like Hugh Hefner with Moon square Venus/Ascendant).
Dutch (Argentina born) Princess Maxima has this combination 3 times! That is a result of the small trine between Moon, Venus and Ascendant (Moon sextile Venus, Venus trine Ascendant, Moon sextile Ascendant, Moon/AC square Venus, Moon/Venus square AC, Venus/AC square Moon). Maxima is now the most popular member of the royal family and the very good looking mother of 3 daughters.
(She also has a Moon square Saturn and inconjunct Pluto and that reminds me of the post about beautiful women and Venus-Saturn-Pluto (for what it takes to remain in shape:).
Moon/Venus/MC (Midheaven) is constructing a career related to art or women, like Ronald Reagan and Hugh Hefner. Women with this combination could be dedicated to being a nice mother and wife. I haven’t seen famous examples of women, yet. But have I seen them all?:)

C Venus with Mercury and a third party
If Mercury is about telling stories, any aspect combination with Mercury and Venus could be interpreted as a love story.
A story about passion and sexuality, a love story with ‘action’
A love story with a happy end
A real life love story (about obligations and parenthood), studying style (stone or clay used for art)
An exciting love story about falling in love
A romantic and not necessarily true love story or a story about an affair
A story about money or about how love eventually wins
A group of people communicating about or with love
People see you as someone who is kind and polite
Maybe it is your profession to tell nice stories
Back to top
D Venus, Mars and a third party
Venus and Mars are the combination of man and woman, sexual activity and passion.
Productive lover or artist
Sadness in love (perhaps death or separation of a wife or lover; for example Paul McCartney whose first wife died has Venus semi square Mars/Saturn). Discipline related to love or women is another way to express Venus-Mars-Saturn combinations.
When Venus and Mars meet, there is passion. When Venus is with Uranus, there is a sudden 'hyper' love. When Mars is with Uranus there is a sudden drive and action on impulse. So: Venus, Mars and Uranus together are the symbol of sudden passions and adventures or acting on impulse when attracted to someone. Maybe this doesn't always have to show up like it does in the chart of Anthony Weiner (tight combination of Venus conjunct Mars, both semi square Uranus) or that of Ryan Giggs (tight combination of Mars opposition Uranus and square Venus. But it often does. Nevertheless there are other ways to mirror Venus-Mars-Uranus than 'strongly passionate excitability: beauty surgery or giving birth - maybe with the help of certain techniques (but than you have another gender, of course). Both Giggs and Weiner opted for therapy to learn how to control themselves. Time will tell if that will change them.
The tension of Venus-Mars-Uranus is in the sexual interaction. Mars-Uranus makes it difficult for men to stay with one woman. Venus-Uranus is one of the risky aspects in the charts of women when it comes to marriage.
Let us find some female examples of charts with Venus, Mars, Uranus combinations:
• Anne Sinclair (the wife of Dominique Strauss-Kahn) has Venus conjunct Uranus and both are square Mars. There is indeed sensation about sex in her life.
• Mariah Shriver (Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife) has Venus trine Uranus and semi square Mars (with Mars quintile Uranus). She recently discovered that her husband has a son with her housekeeper. See about the divorce: http://astrology-love-romance.blogspot.com/2011/05/divorce-of-schwarzeneggers.html
Possible malfunction, infection or disappointment related to sex or the interaction between men and women
The danger of sexuality and being attracted to dangerous men. Problems and challenges in the relationships between men and women (examples are Paris Hilton with Venus semi square Mars/Pluto and Heather Mills with Venus conjunct Mars/Pluto)
The importance of sexual relationships
Sensual looks, using fysical attraction
Two ways: passion for the career or a career/position related to sexuality (desire for having children)
Back to top
E Venus, Jupiter and a third party
Ups and downs in love make careful. Perhaps a happy marriage when older.
Sudden and unexpected success in love or art (like Michelangelo with Jupiter conjunct Venus/Uranus)
Venus/Jupiter/Neptune is the recipe for the fairy tale marriage (in the eyes of others:) and for a devoted and loving audience (fans!). Victoria Beckham has Jupiter semi square Venus/Neptune. Other examples with this combination are Mabel Wisse Smit (married a prince), Heather Mills, Princess Paola, Paris Hilton. Marrying Prince Charming, being a popular idol.
Venus/Jupiter/Pluto means (earning) a whole lot of love or of money and sometimes both. It is the key to a (social) successful marriage.
Also see the post about Venus in aspect with Pluto:
My examples are:
1. Kate Middleton, the future Queen of England, has Sun/Venus and Sun/Jupiter semi square Pluto.
2. Dutch Princess Maxima has Jupiter/Pluto semi square Venus/Jupiter and Ascendant.
3. Robin William (Jupiter square Venus/Pluto)
4. J.K. Rowling (Pluto semi square Venus/Jupiter) also have a Venus/Jupiter/Pluto midpoint combination
5. Politician Ruud Lubbers has Jupiter/Pluto semi square Venus (he is also a business man).
6. Sarah Palin has Venus exactly on Jupiter/Pluto midpoint.
Social abilities and talents
Charming and nice (when you smile the whole world smiles, too). Party animal, popular
The joy of a career or a career related to fun and entertainment. Yoko Ono has Venus opposition Jupiter/MC. Brad Pitt has Jupiter sesquisquare Venus/MC.
Back to top
F Venus, Saturn and third party
The nasty sides of falling in love or giving birth (resulting in birth control or trying to avoid love adventures). Sudden separation.
Malfunction of hormones or kidneys. The nasty results of an affair or romance (abortion)
In the post about Britney I mention the professional femme fatale (Venus-Saturn-Pluto: the 'die hard' in cases of love and beauty) in her chart. Maybe that is a way to see Venus-Saturn-Pluto. There is an expression in my country:
If you want to be beautiful, you must suffer.
Just depilate and scrub and you will see how true that is... And how about the challenge (Pluto) of aging (Saturn), a serious problem for the beauty and the charm...?
Suffer for beauty, charm, estetics or vanity....maybe that is exactly what Venus-Saturn-Pluto is about.
Issues of divorces or relationships with other than official partners (yours or others), breaking up with people you love
Afraid to be not good, nice or beautiful enough (perhaps because of the lack of good taste around you).
Being confronted with divorce, separation, people being untrue and bad luck in love, maybe because of your professional activities.
G Venus with Uranus and a third party
Being blinded or hypnotized by love. VIP’s with such a combination in their chart are often mentioned in the news papers in regard to love affairs or upheaval in the relationship. However, this combination is also seen in the charts of singers, especially when they sing about love…It is the combination of sense of art (Venus-Neptune), romance (Venus-Neptune), rhythm (Uranus) and excitement (Uranus), perhaps.
The radical lover who is willing to take risks in love and falls in love just like that. I have seen bad and nicer examples of the intense way to fall in love and change everything because of it and won’t mention them here…
With such a combination you might be the loving fool of the familyJ
This combination makes you extremely attractive. People give you lots of compliments. Evita Perron had Ascendant conjunct Venus/Uranus.
Would it be fun to relate your social position to falling in love or being a beauty?
Back to top
H Venus, Neptune or Pluto and a third party
This is the concept of intense romance, love after death and fantasies about all-or-nothing in love or the secret force that love is.
Romantic or artistic attitude, maybe a bit shy
The position of an artist or a lover (how romantic will it be to base your status on that?). Louis de Funes’ chart has MC opposition Venus/Neptune. In the blog ART&ASTROLOGY there are many examples of Venus/Neptune/MC combinations. That is because this combination is part of the pattern of artistic professional talent.
Femmes fatales in the public? Or is this about relations with money?
Magical attraction or a situation where earning money is very important
Career related to money and earning money, investment or the value of money (shares). Intense desire and wish lead to the position in society. Examples? Jacques Chirac (money issues led to an investigation), Armani (corruption trial in 1996).
I Venus/Node/AC, Venus/Node/MC, Venus/AC/MC
Nice and polite persons around you
Making the wish of the community come true (Nelson Mandela Venus sesquisquare Node/MC). Getting there with the help of the people that you know.
The crucial importance of diplomacy, style and beauty for example for artists like Beethoven (Venus conjunct AC/MC) and Margot Fonteyn (MC sesquisquare Venus/Ascendant).
