Venus and Mars are two highly significant planets in synastry. What does it mean if you have a Mars conjunct Venus synastry aspect with someone?
Aspects between these planets indicate an immediate mutual attraction. It is more physical than emotional or intellectual. Venus-Mars aspects in synastry indicate that you have an invigorating effect on each other.
When it comes to attraction indicators in astrology, some aspects are more powerful than others. Venus-Mars connections are among the strongest magnetism indicators in synastry. Aspects between them suggest that you find each other irresistible and exciting. This is a naturally passionate relationship with very high highs.

Depending on the type of the relationship, Mars conjunct Venus synastry aspect indicates intense sexual attraction. There’s a lot of chemistry (and it doesn’t fade over time).

Before diving into the meaning of the Mars conjunct Venus synastry aspect, it’s important not to forget about the chart as a whole: one aspect doesn’t determine the quality of the relationship nor is a guarantee for anything. A single conjunction doesn’t tell much about how well you get along in the long run or if there are destructive issues in the relationship: it just refers to the primal attraction between two people.
This aspect is similar to the Venus trine and sextile Mars synastry aspects. How they work exactly depends on the sign, house placement and the aspects to the conjunction, both in your own charts and in synastry.
