Why not venus in 7th and mars in 1st aren't these the ideal houses for the signs to express themselves?
“Ideal” in astrological terms maybe, and ideal for most people, but ehhhhh not really for me. I should just make it clear again that those were my opinions, and I wasn’t basing it off of astrological correctness. I’m not exactly fond of Venus in the 7th because they could carry similar problems as Sun in the 7th natives, often choosing to mask their identity and sacrifice a lot of their comfort because they aim to please the crowd, they may become indecisive in terms of choosing romantic partners or they may associate with Venusian people, sometimes attracting individuals who reek of vanity or shallowness, you know, the usual. That’s not the case all the time though. I also think there is lots of flirtation going around (and that’s fine if you’re a person who would be okay with your partner being like that) but I don’t care for that, which is why Venus in the 7th ranks low on my favorites. Mars in the 1st is decent, but their aggression could be over-the-top and they have a combative approach to conversations, may turn everything into a competition, etc. They’re cool placements but I don’t dig them the most.
