Mars square Venus: Love and Hate

Mars square Venus: Love and Hate

On October 11th, 2018 Mars, god of war, squares Venus, goddess of love and you'll see love and hate go hand in hand. 

There any many ways love and hate go hand in hand. The words of Monica Geller (from the sitcom Friends) come to mind when she mocks Rachel Green about her feelings for Ross (“I love Ross, I hate Ross, I love Ross, I hate Ross!)” Love can quickly turn into hate when you end up with egg in your face…When you want something you cannot have, or when you love someone who makes you suffer, you may even feel love and hate all at once! And there are surely things out there you love to hate (and love to slate) - be it your ex, your boss, the government or your own flaws; and things you hate to love - be it fatty food, Facebook or again your ex - indulging in them despite your better judgment.  

Mars square Venus 2018 creates strong, frustrated desires when what you want and what you actually get clash. The famous Rolling Stones song springs to mind… ‘I Can Get No…Satisfaction…’ This square also makes interactions with the outside world rather intense since you are simply not cool about whatever it is that's got you all in a tizzy. Depending on your character you may come on too strong or feign apathy in an effort to escape your failure to get results. Which is more likely to be your style? That all depends on your birth-chart!

You’re a natural warrior and never mind who this rubs up the wrong way.

You're not one to give up easily when it comes to making something yours and your conquering instincts are in full force today.

Do you fight for what you want or do you walk away? Your call. Your Scorpio weekly horoscope can help you decide. If you don't see eye to eye with a friend, do something physical to let your frustration out. 


Your adventurous nature is hard to rein in at the best of times and more so now when you've got the bit between the teeth and are unstoppable. This may rub up higher ups the wrong way but so what?
