Romantic difficulty stems from fear of failing relationships, and as a result, the Venus square Saturn native completely avoids relationships. The Venus square Saturn native may even destroy their own relationships, a self-fulfilling prophecy brought forth by paranoia. This is especially true if Venus occupies Aries or Scorpio. With Venus in Virgo, the native may seem "picky", but in all reality, they avoid giving anyone a chance. Fortunate placements, Venus in Pisces, Taurus, or Libra, brings ease in relationships; instead, a primary focus of discomfort will be money.
The Venus square Saturn placement may avoid personal pleasures. Excuses and anxiety plague their ability to have fun. This is especially true if the 5th House is afflicted by Saturn itself. Venus in a fortunate placement, however, may only moderate their pleasure, avoiding over-indulging. Their physical appearance shows extreme importance; there is potential for low self esteem.
