Venus and the Moon are the two primary significators of female energy in the natal chart. In a straight man’s chart, they describe two sides of his romantic partnerships with women. His Venus represents the type of woman he’s attracted to, and his Moon represents the type of woman he is comfortable with. To put it another way, Venus describes the woman he wants, and his Moon describes the woman he needs. These factors will be modified by the rest of his chart (especially his 7th House). When one or both of these planets form a hard aspect (conjunction, square or opposition) to his Saturn, it can significantly impact his relationships (in very different ways).
Hard Venus/Saturn aspects suggest extreme caution in love, usually born from early heartbreak. Everyone has been hurt in love, but the Venus/Saturn man isn’t able to shake it off. Somewhere along the line, he learned that expressing interest in the opposite sex left him open to rejection, which cut him to the bone. After the initial pain, he decided “never again.” Or, warmth and affection may have been absent from his early family interactions, with parents who were distant or disapproving. Dutiful displays replaced genuine, spontaneous displays of love.
Fast forward to the present day, and we have a man who is quite guarded, even formal, about expressing himself. This can run the gamut from getting involved in a safe relationship, where he feels nothing more than affection, to not getting involved at all. He may even actively dislike women, although this dislike masks his fear of being hurt.
