  1. My boyfriend has Venus in Virgo and I have Mars in Cancer. It’s funny how the homeyness of this combination contrasts with the combination of his Mars in Leo and my Venus in Aries.

  2. Yep-that’s the complexity of relationships-integrating all these diverse parts of ourselves with another:) If I were doing a relationship reading for the two of you, I would stress the importance of balancing your combined need for cozy time at home, with action, adventure and drama….
